Good Morning Primary7’s!
Monday 30 March / lundi trente et un mars / Montag dreißigste März
Welcome to week 2 of your virtual classroom, with your digital teachers: Cyborg Campbell & Android Haynes.
Please see below for today’s learning. You will find further details and all resources you need on Teams.
Now you have been learning at home for a week, take a look at the timetable that you created. Has it been working for you – what do you want to keep the same and is there anything that you want to change? Make any changes and share your new timetable with us all.
Camp Photos Cartoon – As you can see, all the camp photos have been uploaded into our Team!! Your task is to choose two or three of your favourite photos. You are going to turn them into a comic strip! Print out (or sketch) your favourite photos and use it to create a comic strip of what happened before/after each photo was taken.
Remember when you are writing your comic strip you need to use speech bubbles to show what is being said and a section underneath to share what is happening. You could also use some onomatopoeias to add in drama! Post a picture of your comic strips in the team if you can.
Spelling: Choose the word list most suitable for you and complete the spelling quiz in the same way we do it in class by asking a family member to read the list for you.
Then for your set of words complete a spelling activity of your choice. Remember when spelling the words to use LACAWAC (Look and Cover and Write and Check)
Writing: Write an entry into your Coronavirus Journal. Remember! You are historians creating Primary Evidence of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Be authentic and honest!
Reading: By now you should have read the start of your chosen novel. There will be a task to do related to the main character in your book tomorrow.
Maths & Numeracy:
Time Intervals – Watch the video about how to calculate time intervals:
Choose the right level of chilli challenge for you.
Print off the work sheet or complete the questions in your jotters (remember to CLEARLY and CORRECTLY label each question and answer as you go).
If you want extra challenge you could work your way through them all…
If you’re looking for more maths (you know how much we love maths!) You can access Sumdog or play some of the numeracy card games. You can do these independently or challenge a family member!
Continue to do some work on your personal research presentation. By the end of the day you need to have completed at least three of the five bullet points in the presentation instructions. Remember there is more information on the presentation in the ‘Presentation Information’ word document. The presentation needs to be finished by Friday 3rd.
Questions to think about for your research:
- What is it?
- How was your area of research significant to the war?
- What dates was your area relevant?
- Who were the KEY historical figures linked to your area of research?
- What are the KEY facts?
Watch Newsround: It is broadcast live on TV at 9:15, 12:10 and 4pm, or available on-line. If something interests you, start a thread on Teams (posts).
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 are also daily P.E. challenges posted by Mr Jaggs (a PE teacher at Tynecastle Highschool) 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!
If you need any help, please contact us through Teams or email.
