P7 Learning From Home

Good morning P7!

Tuesday 28 April / mardi vingt-huit avril / Deinstag achtundzwanzig April

 

Here’s the riddle for you to solve today: What can travel all the way around the world, always stays in the same spot?

Post your suggested solutions in the P7H Playground or P7C Chat Room and we will reveal the answer at the end of the day.

Thank you everyone who has added their target for the week. Please try to add these today if you haven’t already done so. There is a folder in this week’s file.

Please see below for today’s learning:

Literacy:

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: Today you have got to put yourself in a character’s shoes. Choose three different stages of your story. In a thought bubble, write what your character is thinking or feeling at these three points in the story.

Maths & Numeracy:

Problem Solving!

There are two levels of challenge to choose from. Once you have completed the work, check your answers.

–          For the spicier challenge the suggested strategies are; make a model, guess and check, trial and improvement, work systematically.

–          For the milder challenge the suggested strategies are; work systematically, guess and check, reason logically, work backwards.

If you do something systematically, you do it in an orderly, methodical way. Mathematicians like to work systematically on a problem rather than approaching it in a random, unstructured way.

Oscars Planning Sheet

Hopefully you have an idea for your Oscars topic and have started your planning ideas sheet. Remember that your planning needs to be uploaded into the Oscars file when you have completed it, and needs to be completed by Friday. We will have a Teams meeting on Thursday to share some of your ideas and to help those who might be a bit stuck.

Toilet Roll Challenge

Remember to video yourself passing a toilet paper for our class toilet roll challenge! Please have your toilet roll coming in from your right and out to your left. If you want to take part this needs to be sent in or uploaded to the files by FRIDAY.

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

Art: Mindfulness Colouring

Some more designs have been added for you to try to create your own mindfulness colouring sheets. Follow the instructions up to step 3 on the file named “Mindfulness Colouring Art Activity” Then have a look at the designs on the file named “Mindfulness Design Ideas” which you can use (or create your own!). At the end of the document there are other ideas to try which do not follow the first 3 steps.

It would be great if some of you could post pictures of your completed colouring sheets to brighten our day!

HWB – PE:

You can choose one of the activities from the PE folder in Files or join in with Joe Wicks (or do both!). Remember to stay active! Let us know what you get up to in the Gym Hall.
