We hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter weekend.
School would have been restarting today (Monday 20th April), and we have updated our home learning links for the summer term.
For English and Maths, we are using the Hamilton Trust ‘Learning at Home’ packs.
This week is Week 3 (they started with Week 1 and 2 as revision packs before the Easter holidays).
In Science in Class 2, we will be looking at the Earth in Space. The moon restarts its phases with a New Moon on Thursday 23rd this week. Keep a diary of the moon phases over the next month. Draw them as accurately as you can Which way is the crescent pointing? Which side of the gibbous (one of my favourite words) moon is more rounded? Key vocabulary: crescent, gibbous, quarters, waxing, waning, new moon, full moon. If you have binoculars you should be able to make out the dark areas which are called the moon’s ‘seas’ (which aren’t really seas).There are good resources for the Earth in Space on the BBC Bitesize website. The file Space Projects has a list of a few ideas for extra home projects linked to Earth in Space.
In History, we will be looking at the Romans in Britain. Again, the BBC Bitesize website has some great resources to get you started. See the file Romans in Britain Projects for some ideas for home research. To get you started this week, find out about Julius Caesar’s attempted invasions of Britain in the years 55 and 54 BC. There are some questions to answer here: Julius Caesar’s Invasions of Britain
The BBC Bitesize website has also launched daily lessons in Maths and English for each year group.
Finally, we have been asked if we have more CGP books for Maths and English, as many of you have completed the ones sent home last month. Unfortunately, it would not be practical for us to get these out to you, but you can order them yourselves from the CGP website.
Update Monday April 27th.
We are now on week 4 of the Hamilton Trust ‘Learning at Home’ packs. Remember, you can email school if you are stuck on anything.
