We hope you and your family are keeping safe and well during these unprecedented times. It is very important to support your child's learning at home during the school closure through practicing times tables, reading for pleasure and active learning. Your child should have an Education City login as well as a Bug Club login to support their reading whilst at home.
We have attached some work and useful websites below to support home learning. The work below includes the date that it was added, however please use it in a manner that best supports your home learning and your child's pace. Also, you may wish to look at other class pages to find milder or hotter activities.
Tuesday – BBC Bitesize lesson on using inverted commas
Wednesday – BBC Bitesize lesson on mastering inverted commas
We are really keen to see what the children are getting up to at home and to put some photos on to Twitter and the school website. Additionally, it would be lovely to have photos that celebrate and thank the NHS and key workers. These do not have to be photos of your child but things that they have created such as posters, poems, rainbows or thank you cards. If you have anything you are happy to share, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
There are lots of ideas on our Summerfield P.E. page to help to keep you all active and healthy during school closure.
Additionally, School Games have put together weekly packs of physical activity ideas for your children to do at home. Parents can log in and track their children's activity levels, the details are included in the pack below:
English (22-06-2020) Poetry
This week, we are learning about poetry. Do you know any poems? What do you know about poetry?
Poetry is a text type that might focus on feelings, thoughts or ideas. There are lots of different types of poems. These include limericks, acrostic poems, shape poems and free verse. Poems might rhyme but they don't have to. Usual rules of word order and punctuation aren't always followed in poems.
Monday – L.O. To understand that there are different types of poems
Tuesday – L.O. To explain why I like a poem
Wednesday – L.O. To revise how to write a poem and create one of your own.
Thursday – L.O. To explore inference questions using a poem.
Friday – L.O. To create my own poem
