We are continuing with our learning from White Rose Learning.  Please follow this link where you will find video clips that will help to explain the small steps in learning and activity sheets for your child to complete.  The questions on the sheet vary so please leave out any of the more challenging questions and come back to them at the end.  You don’t need to print the activity sheets; you can just write the answers on a piece of paper.

(See resources section)

 

We have heard about a great way to have fun learning about shapes using Polygon Party on BBC Bitesize.   If you would like some help remembering how to classify 2D shapes then watch this:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvmxsbk/articles/z98n4qt

 

Geography:  

Tuesday 12th May:  Use the BBC Bitesize and have a look at their lesson on Tuesday about Sustainability and Plastics.

 

Science:

Week 2 & 3:

 

You have had a go at sorting your animals onto groups.  We can tell that from the e-mails we received, you did this brilliantly but you sorted your animals differently. 

How would this work in the real world?  In science, all living things are classified (sorted) in the same way using the Linnaean System.  This is named after a famous scientist who was called Carl Linnaeus.  Follow these links to find out about him.

The first one is a vlog style film about Carl Linnaeus:

The second one is more of a documentary style:

Next look at the power point for more information and an activity for you to complete.  It is the resources section of week 5.

 

Next, look at this for how to classify a red squirrel:

The important thing to learn is that there is a world-wide, scientific way of classifying living things in our world and how they use this to name them.

 

If you have completed the above learning, then have a go at the following games:

RE:  Does belief in Akhirah (life after death) help Muslims lead a good life?

Lesson 1: Consider the following questions:

  • What is meant by a good life?
  • In what ways do children like yourselves demonstrate leading good lives?
  • Why do you think children lead good lives? Is it because of rewards and consequences?   What are your thoughts on this? 
  • What other reasons might it be for?
  • What do you think motivates adults to lead good lives?
  • Should people lead a good life because they want whatever reward is on offer or because they don’t want the consequence or because it is the right thing to do?

 

Deep thinking questions (if you feel comfortable discussing this, discuss these questions with an adult):

  • If someone believes in heaven, is doing one right thing enough to get into heaven e.g. being kind, helping people, etc.
  • What if someone stole something?  Does this mean they will not go to heaven?  What if it was to feed their starving family?
  • What if a person killed someone? Does this mean they might not go to heaven? What if it was self-defence?
  • What if you are sorry and ask to be forgiven? Would this be enough to get to heaven?

Next lesson, we will explore how this links with Akhirah (the Muslim belief in life after death).  Until then, consider how YOU think they might be linked.

 

Music: I can analyse features within a piece of music.

Please go to the BBC ten pieces: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/ten-pieces

Click on the section on the right hand side if you scroll down called, ‘Who are you teaching?’ (It’s in a blue box).

You will be looking at ‘Mambo’ from West Side Story.

Watch the explanation video which analyses the music and then listen to the orchestral version.

They are all wonderful, so why not investigate a few more?

 

History: Please continue with your Greek legacy research project – please share what you have found out as it might be something that we didn’t know and we LOVE learning new facts!!

Art: Please share photos of your amphoras with us and explain what your myth or scene is.
