Click here for a guide on how to access and complete your comprehension task about Captain James Cook.

Writing – All your writing tasks will be based around A Time Capsule Booklet. Click here for a copy of your Time Capsule Booklet.

 A time capsule is generally a container storing a selection of objects chosen as being typical of the present time, buried for discovery in the future. We’re putting a twist on it so it will be a booklet that you will complete to look back on about a time that will go down in history.

Although your should complete the entire booklet, take time with your writing tasks:

1) Write an informal letter to your future self. Find the letter format in the booklet and use it to explain what you are doing at the moment. How and where are you spending your time and who are you spending this time with. Remember to include your personal thoughts and feelings.

2) An interview from a child’s perspective. Ask someone to interview you or you could interview a sibling using the questions on the Interview sheet in the booklet.

3) 2) An interview from an adult’s perspective. Interview an adult in your household using the questions on the Interview sheet in the booklet. How are their answers similar or different to a child’s?

Handwriting:

Think about your handwriting, use the whole booklet to exhibit your best handwriting to look back on. Think about the joins we have been learning.

PSHE - Jigsaw topic: Dreams and Goals

Read/Listen to Story 1: Fowley’s Wings

Use the following link to Jigsaw: https://families.jigsawpshe.com/stuck-at-home/

No password required.

Hold a mid-story discussion:

  • What do you think Fowley will do?
  • What’s going to happen to Hove?
  • Is Fowley being encouraged to achieve his dream?
  • How can we manage our feelings when we have dreams and goals that don’t come true?
  • How could you encourage Fowley and Hove?
  • Then continue with the second half of the story.
  • Discuss with your parents/siblings what Fowley’s dream was and how he overcame obstacles to achieve it.
  • Discussion: Ask your parents to share with you what some of their dreams and goals were when they were your age. What did they want to do/become etc?
  • Did they achieve some of these?
  • How did they?
  • Were there obstacles to overcome along the way?

Think about what your dreams and goals might be, for when you are grown up and for the next few weeks while they are off school.

Draw a pair of wings, like Fowley’s. On the wings draw or write your dreams and goals for the future.

Discuss with your parents how you might go about achieving these and ask them for support.

 

PE

In PE lesson we had started learning about ball control which was going to lead to Tennis skill. Find a tennis ball or another small ball you can practice your ball control skills with.

Begin by throwing the ball in the air so you can catch it, repeat until you are confident.

Move on to walking with the ball whilst throwing and catching it in the air.

If you’ve got a sibling, ask them to join in and underarm throw the ball to be caught. Remember to step back if you catch and step forward if you drop the ball! (If you are catching a throwing with someone, you may need space so it would be advised to do this outdoors.)

Watch the dance through once, replay and copy and follow a dance about tennis. Remember dance is also part of the PE curriculum!

 

Science: Circuits & Conductors

When drawing circuits, rather that drawing an image of each component, we use symbols for each. Follow the link to read and learn the symbols in a circuit: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zq99q6f/articles/zs7g4j6

 

The activities that follow will require you to know what component each symbol represents.

Then watch the BBC clip below.

Complete the 3 activities that follow:

  1. Matching the symbol to the component part 1
  2. Matching the symbol to the component part 2
  3. Build a circuit for an intruder.
