Remote Education Journey
Spring 2 - Week 1:
This week in our English remote education, we looked at the features of a Newspaper Report. We used a WAGOLL to identify features discussing where and why they are used. In Maths we continued our learning on time, we compared the duration of different events and converted seconds to minutes and vice versa. In Wider Curriculum this week, we learnt about positive friendships, Roman gladiators and sound.
Week 6: This week in our English remote education, we focused our learning on different elements of SPAG, (spelling, puncutation and grammar). We added fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases to our sentences to make them more interesting. We also looked at the inference reading domain, focusing on what we could infer from a picture.
Week 6: This week in our Maths remote education we started to learn about time, how to tell the time to the nearest hour, five minutes and minute. We also ensured that we knew which hand was the minute and hour hand and the past and to side of the clock.
Wider Curriculum: In our wider curriculum remote education this week, we created some fantastic 'I am' artwork, focusing on what we are like as a person. We also had a screen free day where we made pancakes and cut them into fractions, went on a walk to spot the first signs of spring and created a Valentines Day card to show someone we care about them.
Week 5: This week in our English remote education we have been writing our own narratives based on 'Kaspar, Prince of Cats.' We studied the chapters we had previously read and practised key English skills such as direct speech, using fronted adverbials and uplevelling vocabulary. We used a 'story mountain' template to plan our writing and then we spent two days on our big write. We made sure we used short sentences and lots of descriptive language to build tension.
Week 5: This week in maths, we have been continuing our learning on decimals. We have focused on dividing by 10 and 100 into decimal places and converting tenths and hundredths from fractions to decimals.
Week 5: This week in our wider curriculum remote education we have learnt about Mount Vesuvius and the eruption that took place, we also learnt about the evacuation plan that is in place if it erupts again. We have also completed another PE challenge and looked at our mental health creating happy boxes and looking at how we are feeling through lockdown. We also researched into the religion Hinduism, looking at their beliefs and the ways in which they worship.
Week 4: This week in our maths home education we focused on decimals. We have learnt how to convert tenths into decimals and divide one and two digit numbers by ten using our place value knowledge to help us.
Week 4: This week in our English home education we have been continuing our novel study on 'Kaspar Prince of Cats' focusing on Chapter 4. We have completed a reading comprehension looking at various reading domains including retrieval and inference questions. We have also studied Elizabeth as one of the characters and looked at her personality traits throughout the chapter. Also this week, we have learnt how to create different structured sentences including 'ing, ed' sentences.
