Monday 30th March 2020.

 

***IMPORTANT NOTICE – PLEASE READ********************************************************

These tasks are here to help you and your child in my absence from their lives. If you are not able to do any (or all) of these tasks because you or anyone in your family is unwell, you do not have internet access, you do not understand the task even with the resources provided or for any other reason at all – then PLEASE DO NOT DO THEM.

 

I will not be asking your child where their work is. I am only contacting families if I hear nothing from them in a week or so – just to check they are ok or to check if they need help. There is a lot of pressure on us all at the moment for a variety of reasons. Please do not take these tasks to be one of them. For those of you that are completing all of them – well done! For those of you who can’t – stay safe and well until I next see you again.

 

Take care of each other everyone!

 

Kindest regards,

 

Mr Scott

Activities to complete today (if you can):

  • Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes answering reading comprehensions on Read Theory. Link: https://readtheory.org/auth/login?login_error=1
  • Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes reading a book of your choice. If possible, adults to ask questions about the book after they have finished reading. Link to possible questions you could ask: https://www.abss.k12.nc.us/cms/lib/NC01001905/Centricity/Domain/36/Parent%20Book%20Talk%20flyer.pdf
  • Spelling: Where possible, and where adults or older siblings have the time, please test your child on the spellings they have practised last week. For example, if they practised 10 last week and got 8 correct, they got 8 out of 10 etc. Please email or Dojo me with their score if you can. They can then move on to practising different spellings this week.
  • Maths: ‘Multiplication’ task on Purple Mash. This is a timetable test to test your child’s times tables so far. Scores will be sent to myself automatically when the test is completed. There are 40 questions in total.
  • Maths: ‘Improper Fractions Activity’ on the ‘Attachments’ section of our class page (in today’s date). Send your photos and answers to my email (james.scott@st-stephens.lancs.sch.uk) or on Class Dojo. The answers are on the attachment.

 

 

Activities to be completed by next Monday:

 

  • Writing: Please send me any of your written work about Jason and the Argonauts to my email address (james.scott@st-stephens.lancs.sch.uk) or send me photos of it on Class Dojo. I realise now having reflected on this that this was not the easiest of tasks. I will be changing my writing tasks going forward! As you will now see below!
  • NEW TOPIC CHALLENGE: Food technology.

Your task this week is to do a little Design Technology Project (DT Project). As you are no doubt be spending a lot of time in the house at the moment, it seems right that we do our bit to help our parents with the cooking.

 

I challenge you all (if you can) to do the following:

    1. Plan – Plan a meal that the whole family can all eat together (excluding babies on formula of course!). You need to see what ingredients you have in the house – you are not allowed to buy new things from a shop. You can plan what it looks like (draw a diagram), plan your ingredients list, write a method (a step-by-step instruction sheet on how to make it), write out a list of equipment you are going to need.
    2. Make – you need to make the meal (please send me plenty of photos, this will make me very happy to see you all cooking!)
    3. Evaluate – write a paragraph or two afterwards reflecting on how it went. Questions you could answer are ones like: Did you get it perfect? Did you use the correct amounts or ingredients? What went well? What didn’t go as planned? Did you have to change something from your plan? If so why? If you were to do this again, what would you do differently and why?

 

This only needs to be sent to me by the end of the week – so you have 4 days to get this sorted!

 

*Please follow all sensible health and safety advice. Children should never be left alone with ovens, hot pans, knives etc or anything that could bring any harm to them. If in doubt – don’t do it! I know you all know this – I just need to remind you of it – and of course WASH YOUR HANDS!

As always, message me if you have any questions.

 

Thanks,

 

Mr Scott
