Now we know that Pharoah's ruled Ancient Egypt lets have a look at some famous Pharoah's.

Tutankhamun- Watch this BBC Bitesize video offering information about Tutankhamun CLICK HERE

What do you think was happening at the end of the video? Who were those people? What could they see? Where do you think they were?

If you want to answer these questions take a look at the 'Tutankhamun Facts' resource that I have uploaded.

There are other famous Pharaohs like the ones mentioned in the 'Pharaohs Facts' resource.

Cleopatra has been mentioned twice in resources that we have looked at. Lets look at how horrible histories imagined Cleopatra... CLICK HERE to see the video.

ACTIVITY- What I would like you do do, is to create a timeline of Pharaoh's (on a blank piece of paper draw a line straight across and place them in chronological order). Once you have placed the years and names where they belong on your timeline, try to write two or three facts about each of the Pharaoh's in a box like we did when we completed our Roman's Timeline in school. 

You could create a timeline similar to Cindy's example below with a picture that you think represents the Pharaoh with your facts underneath (you will not be able to write all of the years across the timeline). I have added a Florence Nightinglae timeline which may also help you visually to create yours.

History- Egyptians

Warm up: Take a look at the Ancient Egyptian writing, you will see that it is very different to our writing. Can you crack the code to find the meaning? Challenge: Can you write your name or a message to someone you live with?

Activity:

An artefact is something made by a human from the past that tells us something about how they lived. These Egyptian artefacts are from a similar time as the iron age- the roman empire which we have already learnt about.

Using the Egyptian Artefact pictures, I would like you to write down all of your ideas of what these artefacts are and what they could be used for. If you can, include why they needed them and if we still have them today. I would use a spider diagram to arrange my ideas, you can lay it out however you feel is the best for you. 
Once you have done this look at the artefact sheet, complete the activity by asking questions that you would like to find out the answers to. Challenge: Can you imagine the artefacts are alive (and can speak), what questions do you think they might ask you?

Computing- How do we get computers to do what we want?

BBC Bitesize Computing lesson today follows a topic we started in school. Look at the videos and have a go at the activities below, especially 'Crack the code'.

Home Schooling - Wednesday 22nd April

Reading

Purple Mash

You will need to get your parents to create an account.  When they have completed the log in details, they will need to activate their account by checking their emails and following the link.

Once you are logged in, there are a number of activities that you can do.  I have been looking in particular at the reading books available.  If you click on ‘Serial Mash’ you will be taken to an online library of books. On the right, you will see the following options for books at different age ranges. If you find a set too hard, read one from the lower set and build yourself up.  There are also little quizzes and activities to go with each chapter!
Diamonds: Age 5-7
Emeralds: Age 7-9
Sapphires: Age 9-11

Read Theory

This appears to be an American site, but is quite easy to use.  Your parents will need to set it up with an email address.  Once you have taken the first ‘quiz’ (which takes between 10 and 20 minutes) you can practise your reading skills by reading a short text and then answering some questions about it.  You can check your progress using the little graph icon in the top left hand corner of the screen.

Free ebooks

Oxford Owl – this is a great website with quite a few ebooks that you can read for free. An adult will need to register with an email and activate the account.  After that, it is easy to use and even has an audio button so that you can listen to the page being read to you – a great way to check that you have read the words correctly!

Amazon – search for free ebooks for children and you will find a number of books that you can download including classics like The Wind in the Willows, cheeky reads like the Barry Loser series and factual books.

Computing- Online Safety
This Summer Term, we are due to start our E-Safety topic.

Wellbeing

In these uncertain times it is important that we look after ourselves. You may have seen a new link on our school website home page where you and your parents can find a link to the Barnardo's PATHS programme. Remember that we need to look after our emotional well-being as well as physical. Try to do things that make you happy, spend time with your family, getting some fresh air or exercise daily. Try not to worry, especially about school work, do as much as you can whilst maintaining a routine that suits you (possibly with lots of breaks and activities in between). 
If you scroll to the uploade files on the Wellbeing page, you will find the weekly Barnardo's resources as well as any other material that might be useful to look at.

Lesson 2- Apostrophe for contraction- this is when an apostrophe is used to show that two words have been contracted to form one e.g. have not = haven’t.  I have attached a quiz and three worksheet resources that can be completed in your exercise books, have a go at one or two of the worksheets and complete the quiz.
Lesson 3- Possessive Apostrophe- this is when an apostrophe is used to show that something belongs to someone e.g. Lucy’s new bike sines in the sunlight. I have attached a PowerPoint for you to read through and see more examples of the possessive apostrophe before completing a series of worksheets that become progressively more difficult.
Lesson 4- Can you write three sentences with apostrophes for contraction and three sentences showing a possessive apostrophe.
Lesson 5- Have a go at completing the next SPaG learning mat Spring Mat 2.

 

Home Schooling - Wednesday 29th April

Don't let the weather get you down, remember:
"It takes sunshine and rain to make a rainbow. There would be no rainbows without sunshine and rain.”

Geography

Looking at the BBC Bitesize Daily lessons, there is an interesting Geography lesson about Contours, Keys and Symbols. Follow the link for this lesson: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvxwjhv

History

We are due to be learning about Ancient Egypt, take a look at this BBC Bitesize introduction to who the Egyptians were: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zfn492p

Music

Here is another great  set of lessons from BBC, each week there will be a session based on a piece of music for you to watch a video and explore that piece. Watch each video and join in with the activities, you could even try to compose a piece of your own using body percussion and any objects in your house that are safe to use.

Home Schooling - Thursday 30th April

CAFOD 

This week, CAFOD have released a resource pack along with an animated video about a letter by Pope Francis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOgF2Kgel6k Watch the video that discusses Laudato Si and think about these questions:

  • What is the Pope asking us to do in this letter?
  • What do you think the Pope means by 'Common Home'?
  • How does the Pope say we have to treat the Earth?
  • What has happened to the Earth because of this?
  • How can we play our part to look after our 'Common Home'?
  • What kind of world do we want to leave for future generations?

I have uploaded images of the animation, a poster with activities that you could do following the video and some templates that can be used for some of the activities.

Science

Lesson 1- What does a plant need to grow?
Have a think about the question for this lesson, do you have any ideas or facts that you can remember from Year 2? Write them down before you start the activities and see how much you remembered!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zy66fg8/articles/zcmtk2p
This video explores what a plant needs to grow. Watch the video and complete the interactive game below before moving on.

Worksheet: What a plant needs.

When you have finished these activities, watch this video that discusses what happens if the needs aren't met or there is too much of one need.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zy66fg8/articles/z98jpbk
Extension: Can you describe what happens if the plant gets too much of what It needs?

Lesson 2- What are the parts of a plant?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zy66fg8/articles/zcjnp39
This video shows the different parts of the plant, but pay attention you won't have long to listen to each part. Rewatch the video if you missed any information and then complete the interactive game below.

Activity: Can you draw a plant and label the different parts?
Worksheet: Parts of a plant- you will need to match the part of the plant to its function. Remember a function is its job or its role.

I have also added some flower mindful colouring sheets to brighten your day. You don't need to complete these or all of them but pick and choose if you are interested in them.

Home Schooling - Friday 1st May

Happy Friday everyone and I wish for a wonderfully happy May. It may not seem like Friday as all of the days seem to merge, but rest assured it is the last day of the school week so take a look at your lessons today- don't forget your Maths with white rose or your English pack. Friday is our P.E. day so I hope you are keeping up with Joe Wicks or choosing from the P.E. activities from our main class page. We also have ART on a Friday, so I have uploaded a lovely art activity that you can all do with a pencil and hopefully can make it beautiful with some colours of your choice.

ART- Exploring lines and shapes
I have uploaded a document with instructions to explore ways of drawing lines and shapes. This is a fun and colourful activity that you can use to break up your day and exlore the simple beauty of drawing and doodling.

Mathletics
Well done to those children who have kept up with and completed their mathletics work. If you have not logged into your mathletics in a while you will have some to catch up on, take care if you do. Your new mathletics will be live from 3pm today for completion by 3pm Friday 8th May.
