Thursday 14th January 2021

We are so impressed with your resilience this week, especially with your Maths. You all seem very secure with the fact that area involves multiplication. We are sure you thought of lots of people that you love in RE and we wonder how many of you were surprised by the effects of smoking on the body. What about the mysterious woman? We are looking forward to reading about your thoughts on her. 

Keep uploading your work on Tapestry. We love to see it. 


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:   Vial 

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

1:30 - 2:00   Reading Activity. 

We are going to be looking at ground breaking scientists so read the Marie Curie comprehension and answer the questions.

Get the whole fam involved in Let’s get physical!  

Today warm up to the 12 Days of Gym Class then we have a short circuit for you to complete! Don’t rush, take your time! 

Can you beat your targets from last week?  


2.45 - 3.20pm French: 

How do you get to school? By the end of today you should be able to explain in French! Round of your day with a fun game :)  

Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q:  If you were designing a raincoat, what 3 elements would it need?   

Miss Martin: Number 1: Definitely needs to be waterproof and be able to dry quickly too (frustrating when coats take forever to dry!). Number 2: Plenty of pockets to keep bits and pieces in (I always end up finding unused dog poo bags in my coat pockets... swear they multiply). Lastly, number 3: A hood, as I don't want to be looking like a drowned rat! 

Miss Chapman:  Firstly the coat would need to have an adaptor which could change the colour of the jacket according to the outfit I was wearing at the time. Secondly a pop up umbrella as I always forget mine. Lastly a built in hood hair dryer to avoid the frizz!!! 

Mrs. Hudson: For me a raincoat needs a hood, so that my beautiful lockdown haircut doesn't get spoilt! It certainly needs pockets for tissues, my gloves and other useful things I carry around. Most importantly it needs to be waterproof. There is nothing worse than being cold and soggy! 


Today's Question:  Would you rather be a Polar Bear or an alligator? Why?   

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 :-)
