Curriculum Map – Summer Curriculum Plan
Summer Term Timetable – Summer 2021 Timetable
Home Learning- 12/07/2021
Last full week of school for the year and hopefully a week you will enjoy by keeping busy with some of the activities we have planned.
To be clear, the following list is intended to be completed over the whole week. We are coming to the end of term and had planned on keeping things light and relaxed in the classroom so don’t intend on piling on the work whilst you are home. We would love to see your work on Tapestry!
Transition Morning – Please remember that on Wednesday 14th you have your transition morning with Miss Betts via Microsoft Teams. Your invite has been emailed to you. Please check the time you have been given as you are in 2 groups.
Sports Day – Monday afternoon will be a special sports day just for Swallows. Please come into school in your PE kit and if possible wearing the correct colour t-shirt for your team. We have had to rearrange the teams so they are even as possible. Please find out which team you are in here – Sports Day
We were planning on doing some simple coding lessons with you in school this week so if you would like to have a go at home, here is what you need to do:
- Please go onto https://hourofcode.com/uk/learn
- Scroll down and find a game which takes your fancy e.g. Star Wars: Building a Galaxy with Code
- Click on it and hit the ‘Start’ button
- Then click the ‘Try Now’ button
- Watch the little video and then follow the instructions on the screen.
Extra coding: So many of you have enjoyed the coding so if you would like to do some more then head to https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/editor/?tutorial=getStarted where you can explore more! I suggest you start by watching the video which appears in the middle of the screen when you click on the link.
We would like you to continue with your research into significant religious figures. This week we would like you to do a little research into:
Bear Grylls: Information Sheet
Read- Information Sheet
- What is his faith?
- What do you know about his life?
- What were some of the challenges he faced?
- How do you think his faith helped him?
- Do you think he is a good role model?
- What was her faith?
- What do you know about her life?
- What were some of the challenges she faced?
- Can you find any famous quotes?
- What do you think is the most important thing about her story?
Our topic ‘Ideas that Changed the World’ has been brilliant and we would like you to show us everything you have learnt. It is up to you how you will present this work, you may like to create a poster or a PowerPoint. You may wish to write a quiz like this one here – Ideas that Changed the World Quiz. Whichever way you wish to present you work is fine. As a reminder this term we have:
- Studied George’s Marvellous Medicine and The Firework Maker’s Daughter
- Completed 2 science topics – one on Electricity and one on Forces
- Studied many artists and inventors
- Created our own inventions
- Looked at how music has changed through history
- Learnt about infleuctical figures from different religions
Please keep practising your times tables! You may wish to watch some of the Supermovers videos which can be found here – https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-collection/z7frpg8
Or you may wish to have a go at this worksheet – times-tables-pdf
Madame Brown has set you a colour by numbers worksheet to complete – Colour by numbers Castle home learning
Screen Free Activities
We really liked the look of these suggestions but would also love to see how you are flexing those imagination muscles away from the screen. Whether it’s baking, skateboarding or gardening, please send us photos of some of your favourite things to do at home.
We would like you to continue to read your book at home. If you finish, please could you write a book review, letter to the author, or design a different front cover?
Teams Catch Ups
We have arranged Teams meetings during the week so that you can tell us what you have learned and enjoyed doing. They will be Mon-Thurs at 2pm and 11.30 on Friday. You should have received an email about this. See you there!
Swallows, you have all overcome so much in your learning journeys since March 2020, a final blip with a closed bubble won’t stop us now either!
We are in the process of working out the best course of action for the next week or so, but for now we would like to set you a few tasks to keep those clever minds of yours busy at home:
We have covered famous inventors, inventions, discoveries, musicians and artists within our current topic: ‘Ideas that changed the world’. We would now like you to do a little research into some significant religious figures who have been influential within their communities and the wider world.
Activity 1- Malala Yousafzai
- Watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/24440653
- Create your own mindmap (just like our learning journeys in school). Here is one with questions to help direct your research. Simply replace the questions on yours with your answers and ideas.
Activity 2- Dalai Lama
- Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFHa8WrI4Fs
- Create your own mindmap (just like our learning journeys in school). Here is one with questions to help direct your research.
We have in fact covered all of your maths learning for the year so we had planned to recap some of the more tricky units. The following activities should help with with further practice on telling the time:
You have been working on converting measures. The following activities should help with further practise on measuring length:
Miss Betts has asked if you would like to write her a letter introducing yourself. She has suggested that you might like to include your likes dislikes, hobbies and favourite things about school.
N.B. We also have some activity packs available for children who may not have access to the internet whilst learning from home. These can be emailed or collected from school, please don’t hesitate to contact us if this is something you would find helpful.
