Robin Home Learning: 11.6.20

Good morning Robins. It was lovely to receive so many messages yesterday, with lots of photos of your seaside work, which can be seen in Gallery 6. This week, the weather has been fairly mixed and certainly not the right conditions for a trip to the coast. However, hopefully the weather will be improving by the weekend, when you will have time to relax and maybe enjoy a trip to a beach.

Well done to all of you who have been working so hard on your Maths work. Some of you have been using the fractions worksheets, whereas others have been working on solving addition and subtraction word problems. Remember, you can find all the Maths videos and worksheets in a separate blog for this week.

Today’s English lesson is about Four types of sentences, which you did some work on a few weeks ago. There is one video and three activities. For the first activity, you will write four sentences: statement, command, question and exclamation sentence. Remember all sentences have to make sense and contain a subject and a verb.
For example, The dog (subject) sat (verb) in his basket. (statement)
Try to use the joining word and in your sentences.
For example, The dog sat in his basket and he fell asleep.
Afterwards, you will watch a video to learn about recycling and its effect on the environment and create a poster. You need to include facts you have learnt from the video, use all four sentence types and decorate your poster with fun images. The final activity asks you to identify different types of sentences on an Oxford Owl worksheet.

Here is the link to the BBC Bitesize lessons.

Your third lesson provides you with an opportunity to learn to count in Spanish, by watching two videos and completing three activities. You will begin by watching the first video and learning to count to twelve in Spanish with the Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero. Afterwards, I think you will enjoy singing along with Queso to count to the number three in Spanish. The second video features some children playing a playground game, ‘What is the time?’; they count from one to ten and take footsteps in the style of different animals. Two activities give you practise in counting in Spanish using flash cards and a crossword, whereas for the third one, you learn to count up to thirty.

We shall now continue with our seaside topic. I would like you to think about what makes a good seaside holiday, whether it is in this country, or in locations around the World. Please begin by watching a short PowerPoint: ‘What makes a good seaside holiday?’.

The final slide of the PowerPoint shows Saint Tropez in France, with a short report about this holiday destination. I have downloaded you some pages from holiday brochures, showing the holiday destinations of Spain, Greece and the Caribbean islands of St Lucia, Bahamas and Turks & Caicos. I would like you to look at the photographs and decide which features of the resorts you would like to write about. The writing is small, but with the help of an adult in your house you may be able to read a few sections together. After the pages from the holiday brochures, there is a writing frame, so you can write two short reports about two of the places you have looked at, accompanied by a picture. Alternatively, you can write about an overseas seaside holiday location that you have visited, or do your own research on the internet to learn about other seaside locations around the World.

I hope you enjoy looking at seaside resorts today, although it may make us all want to go away on holiday, which may not be happening for many of us this year! However, we can all enjoy our local area and appreciate all the lovely countryside and seaside locations of Norfolk and Suffolk.
