Robin Home Learning: 19.6.20

Good morning Robins. I hope you enjoyed all your activities yesterday. I’m sure you stayed inside during the morning, due to the very heavy rain; however, it did brighten during the afternoon, so hopefully you spent some time outside. Well, here we are – Friday again – the last day of the working week.

As in previous weeks, you will be solving your ‘Weekly Maths Challenges’, which you can find via the ‘White Rose Maths’ link, or BBC Bitesize daily lessons. Good luck!

Today’s BBC Bitesize English lesson is the Daily Book Club and you will be listening to extracts from the book Spike: The Hedgehog Who Lost His Prickles, by Jeanne Willis. There are two videos to watch with the TV presenter, Naomi Wilkinson, reading extracts from the book, followed by three activities. Initially, you will look again at the first extract to decide whether Weasel was being a good friend to Spike – was he teasing him, or trying to give him advice? Afterwards, watch both extracts again and consider how you would describe Spike, by looking for evidence in the video transcripts. Finally, can you predict what may happen next in the story?

Your third lesson is Computing and it will be teaching you how to use the web safely. There is an interactive activity, which highlights many of the fun and interesting things you can do with computers – using apps, websites and playing games. Afterwards, there is a Web safety worksheet containing an ‘Online Safety Quiz’. Find someone in your house to ask you the questions and see if you can answer them. Finally, with your family, think of five Online Safety Rules, to help you stay safe when you are online.

Today I would like you to create a Seaside Brochure. I am giving you a short PowerPoint, with some guidance as to what you can include in your brochure.

Think about what you have learnt about the seaside during the last couple of weeks. However, if you need some assistance, here are some information pages from a book about visiting the seaside, which may give you further ideas as to what to include in your brochure. I am also giving you a brochure writing frame, which is downloaded as two pages. Ideally, it needs to be printed as a two-sided brochure. Alternatively, you can create your own brochure using plain paper, or use the seaside border paper I gave you last week. Another possibility is to create your brochure using a computer.

I hope you enjoy creating your brochure. Think about presentation and don’t rush the job. Plan what you want to write and spend time creating the illustrations.

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy some relaxation time.
