Hello Macaws,

This is your Home Learning area of the school website.  I will put up activities and suggestions for daily maths and English work plus weekly activities for other subjects.

  •          Think about starting the day with some exercise   Joe Wicks 9am daily PE
  •          Try and do English and maths work in the morning.
  •          Work for short bursts of time e.g 20 minutes.
  •          Make sure you have lots of breaks.

 

3Bs B4 Me (‘Me’ is your parent!)

Remember that your parent will need to do their own work, so try and be as independent as you can.

 

Keep reading every day to your parent – maybe just before bedtime.

Keep practising your times tables.

Some useful general sites to visit:

BBC Bitesize KS2  Lots of different subjects to choose from.

Think U Know online safety for 8 to 10 year olds  There’s also a parents section

Things to do outside if you have a garden  Ideas from the National Trust

Also, check the School Twitter Feed for any new links or activities as time goes by.

This Family Learning PDF came through from Thorpe St Andrew High School on Saturday.  There were a few free places left on Sunday for the English and the Arts online courses.

Those that wanted to, recorded their favourite line in character.  Terrific!

Lots of choice.  It also reads the text for you if you want it to.

Parents – The maths calculation policy  has the ways we teach addition, subtraction, division and multiplication at Little Plumstead.  Have a look through at some point.  You’ll see the example where Macaws are at with subtraction – it’s near the end of the document.

VIRTUAL PE CHALLENGE!

 

The Norfolk Schools Games are setting up a series of online challenges for you to interact with at home, and join in with other schools. They are trying to get as much involvement as possible from Norfolk schools and they will be on a number of themes. The first challenge is a tennis one, which you can find here:

 

(Tennis – 27th April)

 

We will add future challenges to this part of the site (they will be labelled and dated so you know when to take part).

 

The team at Norfolk Schools Games have suggested you post your efforts on social media. There is no expectation from us that you do, but if you do please have a conversation with your children about sharing things online as we would in school. Discuss both the positive and negative consequences and allow them to make a decision about whether they share the content or not. Obviously we would expect you (the parent/carer) to share it using your own account should you have one. You may feel comfortable just emailing them directly instead.

 

This is the information they have provided about your entries.

Once you have recorded your entry, submit the video via any of our social media platforms by tagging Norfolk School Games in your post. You’ll also need to include your school name and year group.

…and for Facebook entries please post directly onto the Norfolk School Games Facebook Page.

…or alternatively you can email your entry via email to schoolgames@activenorfolk.org

Hope this provides you with some additional physical challenges to add to your daily routines!

I’ve started receiving some examples of your hard work, so I thought it would be nice to share some of it…

Here are some fantastic shots of actors in role as well-known characters from Ancient Greek mythology.  Check out the detail in their costumes and the amazing backdrops which would have been part of the plays, had they taken place. It’s a (Greek) tragedy that they had to been cancelled!
