Wednesday 17th June 2020.

 

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
  • Spellings: On the ‘Attachments’ section of our Class Page, you will find a spellings document. Please practise these spellings ahead of retaking the spelling test later in the week. You will need an adult or an older brother or sister to help you with the dictation during this task.
  • Maths: Use the link below:

Click on Week 8, Lesson 3 – Adding decimals with the same number of decimal places. Watch the video, do the activity, mark your answers. If you have any questions, or are struggling in some way – please get in contact with myself on Dojo and I will try my best to help you! The questions and answer sheets are on the ‘Attachments’ section of today’s work on our school class page.

 

(Remember – if this material to too hard for your child at this stage in their development or without the resources they would have access to in school – please do not worry about doing this. You are also welcome to try lower year group work if you feel this would be beneficial. Please contact me if you think this applies to yourself.)

 

p.s. Please message me to let me know when you have done your maths work – it is nice to see it, as I cannot see it like I could on Purple Mash. Thanks!

 

Writing Task – Explore what life was like for people in Britain in World War Two. This week focuses on the start of the war and what life was like for evacuees. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

 

Explore why children were evacuated and what life was like for them by watching and reading these two sources. Jot down any information which interests you:

 

Watch - BBC History KS2: An Evacuee’s Adventure: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-an-evacuees-adventure/zk7hy9q

 

Read – Evacuation of Children and Women during World War Two: http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/war/evacuation.htm

 

Based on what you have read and watched, create an information page, which could feature in a historical magazine about life as an evacuee. Think carefully about how you present your information, considering these points:

- Do you have clear headings/sub-headings to inform the reader?

- Have you included facts/dates from the information you’ve read?

- Have you included any personal accounts about life as an evacuee (this could be taken from the BBC video clip you have watched)?

 

Remember to proof-read your information page, checking for spelling and punctuation.

 

Remember, if you are not sure or need any help with anything on here – just contact myself on Dojo.

 

Thanks,
