Home learning activities for week beginning

Monday 7nd February 2022  

It’s the last week of term! You all worked so hard this term in such tricky circumstances and I’m hoping we can continue this right through till the end! It has been great seeing lots of you on Zoom last term with lots of you not missing a single zoom! More importantly, you have all been sending me lots of work on Seesaw which has been amazing to see! As always, just do your best with home learning. If you are unwell, I would not expect you to do the activities as your well-being is more important. Each family circumstance will be different, so just do what you can. If you have any questions regarding any of the home learning, do contact Mrs Knight via email and we will contact you as soon as we can.

RE – LO: to be able to reflect on how sharing brings greater joy to our lives.

Have a listen to this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IclFQj4l3F0

Read this story:

Stone Soup

One day, a poor man was walking along when he came to a village.  As he approached it, the villagers thought, ‘Here is a beggar and we don’t have much ourselves’.  They started going towards their homes, hoping he would go away, and they would not have to share anything.

The man called out that he was hoping for somewhere to sleep and a meal.  The villagers told him to go away and that they had not got enough to eat themselves.  The man told them he had everything for a meal and that he was thinking of making stone soup for everyone.  He took a stone out of his pocket and an iron cooking pot out of his bag.

He started to build a fire and fill the pot with water.  He put his stone into the boiling water. The villagers came out of their houses and watched as the man sniffed the contents of the pot and licked his lips. “That is good,” he said, “it just needs a pinch of salt and some parsley.”

“I can give you some,” a villager responded, and she returned with parsley, salt and a cabbage.

“Thank you,” remarked the man, “I once had stone soup with cabbage and some carrots

and it was really delicious.”  Then another villager said, “Well, as it happens, I do have a few carrots.”  He returned with some carrots and a turnip.  So, it went on until there were potatoes, onions and mushrooms.  Someone even had some loaves of bread.

When it was ready everyone sat down and enjoyed a really lovely soup. There was enough

for the entire village.  When the man left the next morning, one of the villagers, stopped him and said, “I would like to buy your magic stone. You have given us the greatest of gifts the secret of how to make soup from stones. We shall never forget.”  The man replied. “The stone is not the greatest gift, but sharing is.  It is only by sharing that we may make a feast.”

SOME KEY QUESTIONS

  1. What do you think of the villagers?
  2. Why were they afraid to let the man into their homes?
  3. What started the sharing?
  4. What lesson did the villagers learn?
  5. What is the cost of sharing?
  6. What are the joys of sharing?

SOME SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES

  • Create a poster for the Rainbow Centre showing the importance of sharing food with everyone

ICT – Please log onto TT Rockstars to complete the time tables set.

Thursday

Science – This term we will be looking at a new topic. This new focus will be around light. Please look at the PowerPoint attached for Lesson 1 Light and Dark.  

Friday

Design Technology / Art Linking with our science topic about rocks and fossils, I’d like you to attempt to make leaf rubbings using wax crayons on different coloured paper. You should make sure the leaves are held securely in place under the paper so that it shows clearly. Rubbings of other objects could be made i.e. different rock surfaces to compare texture or gravestones. All of these show how an imprint of one item can be made on another surface (similar to some fossils). You could also try clay imprints (of leaves, their hands, feet, plants, shells or other small items). Once more, a copy of the original is made (likened to fossils), but it is not entirely three-dimensional. Use quick drying clay.

Leaf rubbings

  

 

 

 

Homework - 28th January 2022 - Money

This week we have been focusing on money. Homework this week is to practise using money as much as possible. This could include:

  1. Children are given an amount of money in various coins and must pay for their snacks and other things around the house.
  2. Go to the shop and pay for one or two items using money.
  3. Create a shop at home where roles are reversed and the adult or sibling is the customer so that they are counting money to make sure you have given enough.  

In addition to this we ask that the children bring in as many toilet roll tubes as possible for our STEM science experiment on Tuesday.

I hope you have a lovely week,

Mr Dewey

This week I would like you to have a look at the PowerPoint of Japanese gardens. See how they are made and how the style is similar but varies in lots of ways. I want you to plan creating your own garden. Think about what resources you will need? How big will it be? (A shoe box size is perfect) what will you put in it? Finally, what will it look like? Draw a picture using colours and labels to help you for when you build your garden. 

Music – Listen to any song that you want and see if you can count the beat or pulse in the tune. You can either clap your hands or tap your wrists with your fingers. Does the pulse change during the song? What do you think about the pulse? Can you create your own beat for a song?

History/Geography-   This week I would like you to go for a walk around where you live. When you’re walking around your town or village, I want you to look out for any pieces of art where you live. If you’re in Folkestone you might see the memorial arch or in Hythe you might see the statues along the canal bank. Using your knowledge of where these are, you will need to find a map or your town/village and place a symbol on the map to represent that piece of art work. You may not have many pieces of art around where you live so try to think outside the box a little. Can special buildings be considered art? What about special events that might happen during the year?

Appendix 1

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9phNEaPrv8

Jesus would have gone to the synagogue, every week on the Sabbath (Shabbat).  He would have listened to readings from the Scriptures and sung psalms.  On three special occasions each year, it is possible he would have journeyed to the Temple in Jerusalem to celebrate the feasts that highlight the Jewish Year.

As the people travelled along, they often sang to keep themselves cheerful and pass the time, but each day, at particular times, they sang their prayers in preparation for the feast they were going to celebrate.  These ‘song-prayers’ are called psalms and we still sing these Jewish prayers today.  Perhaps you can try to remember the next time you say or sing a psalm (at Mass, for instance) that these psalms are the very same prayers that Jesus himself used to pray.

There were particular psalms that people used on the way to feasts in Jerusalem, they were called foot psalms or pilgrimage psalms, as they were said as people went on foot to Jerusalem.

There were particular psalms for each stage of the journey, looking forward to the moment when they would catch sight of the beautiful Temple as they came over the hill.

One particular psalm expressed the great joy of the pilgrim standing inside the Temple in God’s presence:

‘I rejoiced when I heard them say: “Let us go to God’s house”.

And now our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem.’

Psalm 122

SOME KEY QUESTIONS

  1. Are there any songs you sing when you are travelling with the school or your family?
  2. How do you think the Jewish people felt when they first saw the Temple in Jerusalem?  Remember they didn’t have televisions or cameras in those days, so they would not know what it would look like until they saw it.
  3. What do you think the journey was like in Jesus’ time?  Why do you think it would help to sing the psalms?

SOME SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES

  • Write your own psalm for a journey to a special place of worship and begin to make links to the pilgrimage psalms. Use the internet to help you if you find this difficult.

HOMEWORK - 21ST JANUARY 2022

This week in Year 3 we have been looking at writing formal letters. We have looked closely at the layout and structure of a letter writing thank you letters to teachers and invitational letters to a local artist. For homework, I would like the children to write a letter to someone of their choice. They could either be thanking them for something or inviting them to an event or venue using persuasive language.

I would also like to make sure that children are reading 4 times each week and it is being signed in their book. It is a key time where reading regularly will benefit the rest of their education and we also continue to have a raffle every Friday for children who receive 4 signatures.

I hope you have a great week.

RE –  In Ordinary Time we are reminded that God is always there to help us live as Christians. During this time, through the Gospels, we are journeying with Jesus on his mission.  During this time, there are three cycles of readings for the Sundays of the Church’s year, so we hear the journey of Jesus through three different Gospels.

  • In Year A the Gospel readings come from Matthew.
  • In Year B they come from Mark.
  • In Year C they come from Luke.

Teaching Point

The Church has a cycle of three years, so we hear the story of Jesus’ mission from three of the Gospels (see above).  This is one unified cycle, not three set side by side – therefore, the impact and content of the readings are to be judged by their ‘cumulative effect’ over the whole period.  This ensures we have the greatest coverage of Scripture stories of Jesus’ life.  The Gospel of John is used at Christmas and Easter and other times throughout the year.

After the Baptism of Jesus until Lent and then after Pentecost until Advent is called Ordinary Time in the Church’s year.  The colour for Ordinary Time is green.  The Sundays are given numbers Second, Tenth, Twenty-Second and so on.  The last Sunday of the year is celebrated as the feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.

For an activity, I would like you to find what the gospel story for this week is. Record who the Gospel writer is and key points of the story.

ICT – Get to grips with SeeSaw. Have a play around with all the features so you become familiar. This is one of my challenges at home this week so there maybe things you’ll be able to teach me.

Reading

This week we will be starting a virtual guided reading lesson where each child will have a time slot once a week to interact with either Mrs Dewey or Mrs Hockey to discuss the book they will be learning about. Due to this being a virtual guided reading session, we will be using OAK NATIONIAL ACADEMY lesson to follow a story! If your child attends school as a key worker, they will not be required to complete this task as they will be heard read at school.

Science – Rocks and Soils lesson 2 – See appendix 1

How are rocks formed? Look at these videos to see how igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks are formed.

   Igneous:

           Sedimentary:

          Metamorphic:

 

RE –  LO: to be able to understand and identify what the liturgical calendar is and what religious periods take place in them.

Have a look at the liturgical calendar for the churches year. It begins with the first Sunday of Advent and ends with the feast of Christ the King.  The word liturgical means the Church family’s celebration and remembrance of the journey of Jesus when he lived on earth, his death and Resurrection.  It is a calendar of Sundays, feast days and special seasons which are celebrated during one year.  A feast day is a day set aside by the Church family to celebrate an event in the life of Jesus, Mary his mother or a saint. Liturgy is the actions and words of the prayer and worship the Church family offers to God. The Liturgical Year helps Christians to be close to the work of the Trinity, God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, throughout the seasons of the year.  It brings the Church family together as everyone shares in the celebrations.  Following the celebrations Christians are sent out to love and serve God in the world.

Your activity is to draw your own liturgical calendar and write a feast day or special event that happens during each season.

Rock

Formation-

 

What is it used for and why?

Sandstone

 

 

 

Sedimentary

 

 

 

Sandstone is used for building sand, paving, construction stone and glassmaking because it is tough but easy to cut and carve.

Marble

 

 

 

Metamorphic

 

 

 

Marble is used for sculpting and decorative features in building because of its hardness and durability and ability to be polished until smooth and shiny.

Chalk

 

 

 

Sedimentary

 

 

 

Chalk can be used to adjust the acidity of soil, for writing on a blackboard, in toothpaste, as an indigestion remedy and as a fingerprint powder as it is soft, light and crumbly

Pumice

 

 

 

Igneous

 

 

 

Pumice is used in concrete, cement, ground up as a polish, used as an abrasive to soften hard skin and to filter water. It is very hard and has coarse, abrasive properties.

Clay

 

 

 

Sedimentary

 

 

 

Clay is used for making pots and plates for cooking and decorative use. It is water resistant and is effective for using in brick making. It is easily moulded when wet but dries hard – especially when fired to a high temperature.

Granite

 

 

 

Igneous

 

 

 

 

Granite is used as a building material because it is hard and durable. It can be cut and carved and can also be highly polished and used for kitchen worktops.

Slate

 

 

 

Metamorphic

 

 

 

Slate is used for roofing tiles as it is a layered rock and can be easily split to make thin, waterproof tiles. It is easy to break so has to be handled with care when being used.

 

HOMEWORK - 7TH JANUARY 2022

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and look forward to an exciting and hopefully joyful year ahead.

For homework this week I would love to have the children bring in or find a leaflet that excites them. We have been working on leaflets in class and spoke about what appeals to them and the importance of certain aspects. When they have found one, I would like them to identify the features and see what is different and what is the same compared to leaflets we have seen in class. 

I hope you have a great week.

Appendix 1

Read the text from Luke 2: 1-7: The birth of Jesus (the Nativity) Luke 2: 8-20: the shepherds God’s Story 3 pages 74- 75. Illustrate these stories using works of art which depict the Nativity.

Remind the children that it was the shepherds (amongst the poorest and least important in society) who were chosen to be the first people to visit Jesus.

Epiphany

This week is a special week for Christians as we are celebrating Epiphany. Epiphany is celebrated on the 6th January and it is when the three wise men came to visit Jesus.

Read/display the story of the Wise Men (Matthew 2: 1-12: God’s Story 3 page 76).

Remind the children of how Matthew tells us of these other visitors who were not Jewish and this shows that God’s love includes everyone. They had travelled a long way to be present after the birth of Jesus.

SOME SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES

  • Imagine that you are present as a visitor in the nativity picture by Gerard Van Honthrost, Adoration of the Shepherds. Describe how they are feeling and showing their love for Jesus. How are you feeling and how will you show your love?
  • Create an ‘interview’ scenario where the shepherds or three wise men are interviewed in front of a ‘live studio audience’. Devise questions to ask them about what they saw, how they felt and how it changed their lives. This can be recorded and played back to the class for discussion purposes.

Science –  If you have a magnet at home, have a look around the house to see which materials are magnetic and which aren’t. Can magnetic forces be stopped? Write down your findings in a table.  

RE –  See Appendix 1 below – Recap our knowledge on Baptism

History/Geography-   Can you tell me the co-ordinates for each item on the map in Appendix 4? You will need to remember to write co-ordinates you will need to start along the bottom row and then go up the side (Along the corridor and up the stairs).

ICT – Please complete and finish any outstanding lessons on db Primary and use TT Rockstars to practise times tables.

PE - Try and get outside if you have a garden. If it is rainy why not ask your family to put on an exercise video that you can enjoy. The Joe Wicks ones are still on You Tube or maybe try Just Dance or similar.

French (KS2 only) Continue to recognise colours. Use Youtube to find a suitable video that pronounces the colours.   

Design Technology-  NONE

Art-.   Create something ‘Christmassy’ to put on your tree. This could be a painted pine cone, a decorated bauble, a snowflake as long as it is something you’ve made yourself

Appendix 1

Commitment and promises made at Baptism

CONTENT

The parents with the baby and godparents, go to stand around the font. The priest/deacon blesses the water, the sign of new life. The parents and godparents are asked if they will commit themselves to do all they can to help the child become a good Christian. In order to do this, they make promises to reject evil and all that means and promise to serve God faithfully as they renew their faith in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The priest/deacon asks the parents and godparents to renew their own faith by responding to three questions with the words I do.

Priest/deacon: Do you believe in God, the Father, the Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth?

Parents and godparents: I do.

Priest/deacon: Do you believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died and was buried, rose from the dead, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father?

Parents and godparents: I do.

Priest/deacon: Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting? Parents and godparents: I do.

Put this commitment of faith on the IWB.

Ask the children to notice how each section of the commitment of faith asks parents and godparents to say they believe God the Father, Jesus Christ his Son and the Holy Spirit, the blessed Trinity. (Remind the children that Christians do that every time they make the Sign of the Cross.) The parents and godparents are making a commitment on behalf of the baby that she/he will grow up a member of the Church family and to follow the way of Christ.

SOME KEY QUESTIONS

  1. What is the water a sign of?
  2. What do the parents and godparents have to promise?
  3. Why is having a baby baptised something that needs to be prepared for?
  4. What does it mean to make a commitment? (Think back about belonging to a club etc.)

HOMEWORK - 26TH NOVEMBER 2021

This week I would like you to focus on rehearsing the songs that have been sent home. We will be performing a show in a few weeks, and it would be great for all the children to know the words off by heart. Some children may want to practise learning the lyrics, some may want help singing loudly, others may want to work on their timing. This will be greatly appreciated as we are heading into a busy time of year. 

Many thanks,

Mr Dewey

HOMEWORK - 19TH NOVEMBER 2021

Homework - Maths

Continuing from the previous maths homework I would like the children to really focus on their times tables using TT rockstars. I have set their targets and would like them to set a personal challenge for them for next week. It might be to earn a certain amount of coins, improve my average time for answering questions or even answering a certain number of questions in the time given. 

If there are any issues do contact the school. As stated to many parents during parents evening, ''Top Marks'' and ''Hit the Button'' are alternative games that can be used if issues are occurring. 

Have a great weekend!

Mr Dewey
