And into Week 2 of your Remote Learning! 

We hope that you had a restful weekend and are raring to go for this weeklaugh

Today, we are going to move away from Shakespeare and look in more depth about our new class book (which you have hopefully been able to listen to on Tapestrysmiley).


09:00 - 09:45: Class Daily Zoom Session! 

It's been lovely to have so many of you join us for the calls so far. Make sure you have a paper and pen ready for the session, to make notes of key learning points and to be able to join in with the tasks :-).


Word of the Day:  Eternity  

Look up what the word means, what word group it belongs to and place it accurately into a sentence.


09:45 - 10:30   Mathematics. 

Step 6: Counting Squares [RECAP]. 

This week, we will be continuing with... Measurement: Perimeter and Area! Moving specifically onto area now. 

Work through the worksheet Monday 11th January - Maths Task. 

Be sure to watch the White Rose video below & linked in the activity sheet - this will help with your new learning!


10:30 - 10:45   BREAK! 

Get outside and enjoy the Winter air! Notice the birds, leaves, seed heads, twigs and vivid green moss! 


10:45 - 11:15   SPaG

Proofreading Practice!

Read the given texts and see where mistakes have been made (proof-read!). The marking symbols give you a clue as to what errors you are looking for in their work. 

Re-write the paragraphs as they should be written! Take it sentence by sentence.  


11:15 - 12:15   English/Writing. 

Potion Masters: The Eternity Elixir by Frank L. Cole!

Look at the front cover of Potion Masters and the blurb. You have now heard the first few chapters too.

  • What do you think the book is going to be about? Look at the sheet attached to help you with your predictions. 


12:15 - 12:30   Class/Own Book.  

Like we would in class with our class book, spend some time quiet reading or listening to the class book. The teachers have uploaded videos of themselves reading different chapters on Tapestry, so be sure to check :-).  


12:30 - 1:30   LUNCH! 


1:30 - 2:00   Reading Activity. 

Read and just complete the Metals Text section. 

Make sure you look up any new words. 

Keep any sheets for tomorrow! 


2:00 - 3:20   Computing Focus: 


Does Google know all of the answers? Is Google always right? Let's take a look at how Google knows so much! 

Work through the Computing Sheet. 


Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q:  Would you rather have a boat or a bike? Why? 

Miss Martin: I think I would like a boat... I used to sail every weekend with my dad when I was younger and I love the idea of having the skill and knowledge to be able to sail off somewhere and scale the ocean. Like an explorer... 

Miss Chapman: Bike all the way! Since March 2020 I found a new passion for cycling, it became a routine to go out cycling every weekend with my father - we started going to Friston Forest down all the different MTB (mountain biking) trails which were epic! I mean I did fall off plenty of times but that was all part of the fun :-)

Mrs. Hudson: As much as I cycling I think I would like a boat to gently bob along in. 


Today's Question:  What one thing would you add to a bike to make it even better?  

Spend some time during dinner or at some point in the evening, discussing this with the other people at home! We're sure there will be some interesting responses :-)
