Friday 5th February

Good Morning Hawthorn Class - we have almost made it through another week!


Here are the activities we would like you to complete today. You can choose what order you do the activities in, but we suggest trying to do the English and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Please save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail a copy to us each day.


1) English

Today you have choice for your English lesson! In the resources section are two tasks: 'Cinderella' and 'The Troll'. Click on each and choose which you would like to complete today. Look carefully at the picture, then read and answer the questions. These are for you to talk about (if you have someone available to talk to) or to think about - you don't need to record your answers and there is no right or wrong answer! Then read the story starter and have a go at carrying it on. Think about everything you have learned over the last few weeks. Can you include a question, some adverbs or some complex sentences? If you have your own idea for a different story based on the picture, that is OK too. I'd love to hear some stories later on Zoom.


2) Maths - Fractions

Lesson 10 - there is no Bitesize lesson for today so you all need to follow the Oak Academy lesson to learn how to add fractions with the same denominator.

Don't forget, using your Bug Club logins, you can play a game which links brilliantly to this lesson. 


3) Spellings

Have a go at the spelling activity below to practise your spellings.


4) Topic

Today we will be looking at physics again, specifically how to keep our hot chocolate warm whilst we’re out at forest schools. Open the ‘Keeping Drinks Warm’ activity from the resource section below. Follow the instructions to find the best solution.


5) Children’s Mental Health Week

This afternoon we will be chilling out with some mindful colouring. I love colouring in, it really takes my mind off what I’m worrying about and it makes me really happy. In the resource section below, open up the ‘Mindfulness colouring’ activity. Choose one or more of your favourites and get colouring. (You can save the rest for when you feel like you need to chill out over the weekend.) Alternatively, you could create your own picture on plain paper.


6) Forest School

Getting out and about is also great for your mental health. Miss Quick has designed a wonderful forest school activity for today. Open up the ‘Forest School’ activity from the resource section below.
