Monday 25th January

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 call 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

Today we are going to start a brand new English unit called The Man on the Moon! It is a visual unit which means we will be watching something, rather than reading something. Today we will be watching the clip and thinking about our initial responses:

  • What do we expect to see?
  • What do we actually see?
  • How does it make you feel?
  • What do you like or dislike?
  • What would we like to know?


You will also be asked to order pictures from the story so I have added a copy of the pictures below for you to print off and cut out if you wish.


Here is the link to your lesson:


2) Maths - Fractions

If we were in school, we would be starting to learn about fractions. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be using the BBC Bitesize home learning lessons to help us build up our knowledge and skills of fractions.

The first lesson will remind us what a fraction is.

Lesson 1:

  1. Watch the video clip to learn what a fraction is.
  2. Join in with the Supermovers video.
  3. Read ‘What is a fraction?’ and ‘Fractions in daily life’.
  4. Complete activities 1,2 and 3. 


If you would like to carry on with the Oak Academy lessons to learn about fractions, you can. Just follow the link and continue in the same way we did for addition and subtraction.


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 tall letter and the fall letters. 


4) Topic

This week in topic is Art Week so we will be looking at different artists, art styles and craft.

1. Open the ‘Kandinsky Presentation’ in the resource section below and read through it.

2. Open the ‘Kandinsky Circles Poster’ resource sheet and look at how the picture is made up of different coloured circles.

3. On the ‘Kandinsky Circles’ activity sheet, create your own coloured circle in each box. Think about different shades and tones. You can choose to use any medium you like – paints, pencil crayon, felt tips, pastel – your choice! If you can’t print, just draw them on a piece of paper.


5) PE

PE with Joe - He is live in the morning but you can google PE with Joe and catch up with any of his workouts. Pick one and get active! Alternatively, you can choose a physical activity of your choice to do at home – Dance, Gymnastics, bike riding, basketball, or roller skating (my favourite!). Anything you’d like, get it done! I’d love to see photos of you working out!
