Mrs Heeley and Mrs Bray will continue to renew the homework challenges. If you would like any help or would like to contact us during this school closure, please use our school email and we will get back to you ASAP. email@example.com and PBray@intakefarm.notts.sch.uk
Mrs Bray has also sent all the children an email via Purple Mash and if they would like to send a message back please get them to log on.
Home learning challenge
Have a look at the art activities and choose one of these to have a go at. This is the PDF at the bottom of the page that says sketchbook work.
Please continue to learn your spellings at home. Put these words into sentences. Who can make the most interesting sentence using as many of the words?
Write a story about finding an Egyptian tomb. What do you find? Who do you go with? Remember to include a beginning, middle and ending. Think about how you are opening your sentences and remember to use paragraphs to separate your ideas.
Create a Fortnite character: draw it, make it out of play-doh, paint it, make it out of lego, or any other method you would like. Once you have done this can you describe it? Write a few paragraphs explaining what they look like and what they can do, including any crazy dance move.
Make your own maths treasure hunt. Think about everything you already know and use this.
In a space or outside complete: 30 jumping jacks and rest for 30 seconds, run on the spot for one minute and rest, 10 press ups and rest, hop on each leg for 30 seconds each and finally 20 squats. Repeat 3 times.
If possible log in to Purple Mash and finish your Egyptian maze. Log in details can be obtained from the office.
Reading is so important and we need you to keep reading at home.
Please fill in your child's reading diary every time you listen to them read.
Get the children to write book reviews of the books that they have read.
Take pictures of your children reading in silly places and stick them in to their reading diaries.
Put a television series on and get them to read the sub titles.
We can not stress how important it is to read at home!
This half term we are going to be focusing on writing about the Egyptian Gods. We are going to be writing non-fiction information based on this topic. We are also going to be writing our own Egyptian poems (acrostic, haiku and rhyming poems)
In maths, we will be continuing to focus on Fractions. Measures, Multiplication and Division. Please continue to learn your times tables at home. The children also need to make sure that they are forming all their numbers correctly.
Our topic this term will continue to be based on the Egyptians and finding out about Tutankhamun. We will be finding out about where in history the Egyptians happened and talking about the changes that have happened over time. The children will be investigating the mystery of King Tut and questioning what might have caused his death.
This half tern we will be looking at ‘Desert Life’. The children will be learning about the different habitats of animals living within the desert and the types of animals that live there also.
PE is on a Thursday and Friday. We are looking at Dance this term. The children will be learning all about Rock and Roll and developing their own routines. Whilst the weather is cool we will be doing the lessons in the hall. The children must make sure that they have suitable PE clothes with them on both these days. We recommend that the children bring their PE kit in to school and leave it so that they don’t forget it.
Children will receive their spellings every Friday and will be tested the following Friday. Children who get 8, 9 or 10 spellings will receive a full merit. The child will be told their score before their next spelling test. We have tested the children on their spellings in class and from these assessments we have given the children spellings which they are not always spelling accurately. The children need to not only spell the words correctly in the test but also within their writing. We thank you for your help and support with this as it is an area which we are targeting.
We will be continuing to improve on the attendance and hope that your children come to school every day as this helps with their learning. Please also try and make sure that they arrive on time at 8:40 am and are picked up at the end of the school day.
Home and School Relationship
Those children who are reading at home are making a lot of progress in school which is fantastic. We do look through your child’s reading book to check that they are reading at home. Please could either you or your child make a note in their diary when you have read. We are thankful for all the support you give us in school. Please continue to come and see one of the team with any worries or concerns at the end of the day. We also thank you again for the hard work that you are putting in at home for the children’s homework. The children’s homework books look amazing. We do really appreciate all of your hard work and efforts and it is gratefully received in class. Just a reminder that the Egyptian homework does not have to be handed in until Wednesday 1st April.
