Robin Home Learning: 15.6.20

Good morning Robins. I hope you’ve had a good weekend and enjoyed the lovely sunny weather. Perhaps some of you visited a beach with your families, so you were able to see for yourself some of the key features of a seaside location. If you did, perhaps you had fun playing on the sand, looking in rock pools, or paddling in the sea.

All your ‘White Rose Maths’ tasks are set out in a separate blog, with the Video Links, Worksheets and Answers. This week, you will be focusing on 2-D and 3-D shapes, which will consolidate your previous learning in class.

This week you will continue with the BBC Bitesize lessons, but I will also be giving you activities linked to our Seaside topic each day.

Here is the BBC Bitesize Schedule of lessons for this week and the link to the website.

Today’s English lesson will give you practise in ‘Identifying errors in writing’. This will be achieved by watching a video and completing three activities. When checking your work, you need to look for errors in punctuation, spelling, or grammar, ensure your facts are correct and that your sentences make sense. After watching the video, the first activity gives you an opportunity to spot three errors in Frank’s scary stories before moving on to check your own writing. You need to write three sentences, that tell somebody which exercises, or sports, you enjoy doing and why you do them. Try to use some joining words in your sentences, such as and, but, or. After writing, double check your spelling, punctuation and use of capital letters. Finally, there is a worksheet for you to download – ‘Capital Letters and Punctuation’. It contains a piece of writing, which you need to check for errors, before copying it out correctly.

The third lesson is History and you will learn about the life and achievements of the famous playwright, William Shakespeare, by watching a video and completing two activities. After reading a list of facts about Shakespeare, you need to order some key events of his life. Finally, there is a wordsearch for you to complete.

If you would like to extend your learning about William Shakespeare, you could create a poster about his life. Here is a link to the BBC Teach website, which has some resources suitable for Primary age children, including a link to a YouTube film about his life.

Otherwise, here is a link to the Shakespeare website, where there are some craft ideas for children.

Let’s now return to our Seaside topic. First I would like you to complete a comprehension task called ‘At the Seaside’.

Finally, here are some seaside photos for you to look at, presented on a PowerPoint. After looking at them, perhaps you can create your own drawings of key features of a seaside location.

I hope you enjoy your home learning today, selecting the activities, which you fancy doing, alongside spending some time outside getting some fresh air.
