Good morning P7!

Thursday 2 April / juedi deuxième avril / Donnerstag zweiter April

Today’s Riddle: How far can a fox run into the woods?

Good morning P7. Welcome to day nine in your digital classroom. No more pranks today (we promise!). Please see below for today’s learning:


Spelling: Create a piece of writing (it could be a story, poem, rap, news report or letter) trying to use as many of your spelling words as you can. Underline each word you have used. It could be a ‘normal’ piece of writing or it could be ‘random’ sentences…

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

 Maths & Numeracy: Converting Units of Time:

Today we will be looking at how to convert between different units of time (days, hours, minutes etc.) particularly converting smaller to larger units (e.g. seconds to minutes). There is a power point in Teams for you to work through. After you have worked through the power point select the level of challenge worksheet to complete by either printing it off or answering in your jotter.

You can use the worksheet called “time interval facts” to help practising converting between different units of time.

The following videos will also help to explain the different units and how to convert between them:

IDL: Air Raid Shelter Task –

By now you should have completed your research completed on different air raid shelters and designed your own Air Raid Shelter (It could be a physical model, or if you don’t have things to make a model at home a DETAILED drawing showing the front, sides and top of your shelter.). Now you will complete your PowerPoint. This needs to be completed by Friday.

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.


As part of the Bikeability course you are expected to complete some classroom-based learning as well as being out on the roads. If you can, print the sheets out. If not sketch your answers into your jotters.

Below are some videos that will help you complete the Bikeability sheets assigned today. Please check your answers and if you have got any incorrect please talk it through with an adult so you understand why you got it incorrect.

Worksheet 1 – label the parts of the bike.

Worksheet 2 – Major and minor roads. Remember – A minor road is as a road of less importance to the one it is joining. The term ‘major road‘ is the larger main road, where smaller minor roads join via junctions from either side.

Unlike some other religions, Hindus don’t believe in a single creation story. Just like they believe in the cycle of karma and rebirth for living things, they believe the Earth has been made and remade numerous times. These are a couple of examples of Hindu creation stories:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9yWwFWpbRo  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bW_awN9uV6w

These are only two of the many possible creation stories that Hindus believe in. Note the similarities and differences between the stories – they both begin with Hindu gods and illustrate how one aspect of the world was created, but there are different Hindu gods involved in each story. Think about the Hindu gods we have learned about – what different creation stories could there be that involve these other gods, eg. Krishna, Rama, Ganesha, Hanuman, Kali?

Your task is to illustrate a Hindu creation story. This could be one of the stories from the videos, OR you could create your own new creation story involving one or more of the Hindu gods you have learned about. Ideas for how to illustrate your creation story could include:

  • Write a story
  • Draw and label a diagram
  • Write a script for a play or performance
  • Create a PowerPoint or Sway
  • Create a mini book
  • Act it out for your family
  • Design a Scratch animation
  • Anything else you can think of – feel free to use your creativity
