26.3.20 – P7 Learning from Home

Good morning P7!

Welcome to day 4 in your virtual classroom, with your digital teachers: Cyborg Campbell & Android Haynes.

We hope you have now settled well into your virtual learning routine. Some of you have started sharing some of your learning from home with us through the Class Notebook section. Feel free to upload work in there – typed or pictures of what you have done – and let us know it is in there to look at.

 

Please see below for today’s learning:

Literacy:

Spelling: A challenge for today – try and use each of your spelling words in a conversation with someone around the house, tick each one off and write it down as you manage to use it. Try to use them in ‘normal’ conversation, however, you may need to say some ‘random’ sentences…

Writing: Do a SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) check for your journal and your WWII presentation. Make sure you are reading what you have written carefully and have full stops and capital letters in the right places (remember capitals for proper nouns – people and places)

Writing: Write your next entry into your Coronavirus Journal. Remember! You are historians creating Primary Evidence of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Be authentic and honest!

Reading: Make sure you have made a start with your chosen novel – if you have divided your novel into sections, make sure you are on track for week 1 as there will be a task set for your chosen novel on Monday.

 

Maths & Numeracy:

Speed, Distance, Time!

Using everything that you have learnt about speed, distance and time you are going to answer some word problems. For some of these questions you might need to use a calculator to help you – only use this if you can’t work it out using mental methods or a written calculation.

Android Haynes and Cyborg Campbell would love to see how you are getting on with these. If you can, post a picture of your answers into your class notebook page and share it with us!

There are two levels to choose from, the answers are at the end of each file to check your work. Be careful to check your units that you are using – there are some trick questions!

 

Remember to keep playing the numeracy card games – the more you do these the better your mental maths and numeracy skills will become!

 

IDL:

Air Raid Shelter Task –

Start (or continue) your research on different air raid shelters. Remember that you need to keep a note of where you get any information from (e.g. the name of the website) and that each information must be found from at least two different sources to make sure it is reliable.

Things you may want to find out about air raid shelters;

  • Where is it located?
  • What material is it made from and how was it made?
  • How protective is it?
  • Who would it be suitable for and how many people could use it?
  • How much does it cost?
  • When was it made/given out?
  • Any other interesting facts.

 

Once you have completed your research, start to think about designing your Air Raid Shelter. It could be a physical model, or if you don’t have things to make a model at home a DETAILLED drawing showing the front, sides and top of your shelter.

We will set the task of completing your PowerPoint one day next week.

 

This is the information from the Key task to explain what you are to do;

Pupils will research to find out as much as they can about Air raid shelters, taking notes. They will work individually to design and create a model Air raid shelter (this can be an actual model or a DETAILLED sketch of what you would create if you do not have access to things to make a model) and create a PowerPoint to share with the class (saved into the Air Raid Shelter File), to explain how it was made, why they chose that method and some facts about the air raid shelter.

 

 

Watch Newsround. It is broadcast live on TV at 9:15, 12:10 and 4:00 pm, or available on-line. If something interests you, start a thread on Teams (posts).

Duolingo – Continue to do some work on this app. If you can’t make an account, don’t worry, Sabrina has sent us some learning that we will send out soon.

 

HWB:

Do something to help around the house to make someone happy; sing a song, create a dance, make someone a cup of tea/coffee or maybe even show them a new skill you have learnt.

 

Remember to stay active! It is important to stay healthy while we are learning at home. It would be great if we could get lots of you joining in the P.E. sessions with Joe Wicks at 9:00am (this is also available afterwards as a recording).

There is also P.E. challenges posted by Mr Jaggs (a PE teacher) Twitter https://twitter.com/JaggsMr

 

If you take part in either of these or do other things to stay active and healthy, let us know how you get on in the Gym Hall channel!

 

We hope you enjoy your fourth day of digital learning.

If you need any help, please contact us through Teams or email. (which you have been VERY good at doing already! 😊 )
