Monday 1st February

Welcome back for another week of Home Learning Hawthorn Class!


We hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready to see all your friends on Zoom today. We are looking forward to another week of Zoom calls to keep in touch and see how you're doing!


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

Now that you have written the opening to your narrative, we are going to start thinking about the build-up. Today you will be thinking of some different words and phrases to describe how the characters are feeling at different points in the build-up. To help you organise your work, I have attached a sheet below for you to write on with each of the key pictures from the clip.


Here is the link to your lesson:


2) Maths - Fractions

Lesson 6:

Take a look at fractions on a number line.

  1. Read about fractions on a number line.
  2. Complete activity 1 - the worksheet (download it from the resources section on the bottom of this web page).
  3. Complete activity 2.
  4. Complete activity 3.
  5. Play the game to consolidate your learning.

3) Spellings

It's Monday so let's practise our handwriting and our spellings at the same time. Concentrate on the size of your handwriting, look carefully at the caterpillar letters – are they all the same height?


4) Topic

This week is all about Science – it’s a science themed week in topic. Each day there will be a selection of investigations for you to explore. Most of them need every day household items but it might be useful to look at what you need in advance. See the main page for this week's home learning for a full list of equipment.


Today we are looking at biology, specifically the skeleton.

  1. Click this link to watch a short video about the human skeleton:
  2. Then open up this link to build a skeleton: Alternatively, you can open up the ‘Build a Skeleton’ activity form the resource sections and make a paper skeleton.
  3. Open up the ‘Label a skeleton’ activity from the resource section and see how many bones you can identify. Once you’ve found as many as you can, open up the ‘Skelton poster’ to check if you missed any important bones.


5) Children’s Mental Health Week

This week is a national week dedicated to promoting children’s mental health and wellbeing. Mrs Downing’s has organised lots of fun activities for the whole school to take part in and on Friday, it will be ‘DRESS TO EXPRESS’ day. This means on Friday you can wear clothes on zoom, or in school that express you – whatever you want! I know what I’m going to wear and I’ll think you’ll love it!

With this in mind, every day there will be an activity to take part in but don’t forget to still get out of the house and do some exercise as this is also very good for your mental wellbeing.

Today click this link and watch how to play the squiggle game:


6) Forest School

Open up ‘Build a nest’ in the resource section below. In it you will find a challenge for building a nest for a magpie.
