Monday 8th

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!


Have a think about something nice you could do for someone in your house today...


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 are going to start planning the climax of your narrative. The climax is when the problem in a story reaches its peak. It is when the story gets most exciting and when there is the most tension. In The Man on the Moon, the climax is the part where the little girl finally finds a way to communicate with the old man. You will be thinking of words and phrases to ‘show not tell’ what is happening and how the characters are feeling during the climax of the story. I have attached a sheet with the key pictures in the Resources section.


Here is the link to your lesson:


2) Maths - Geometry 

This week, we are going to be learning all about 2D and 3D shapes. There will be a practical activity everyday to warm up followed by a lesson from Bitesize.

Lesson 1:

  • Warm up – Go to 3 rooms in your house. Can you see any 2D shapes? In my bathroom I can see square tiles. Draw or take a picture of at least 3 shapes you can see in each room. Can you challenge yourself to find a different shape each time?
  • Bitesize lesson 1:

Learning focus: Learn how to recognise 2D and 3D shapes from descriptions of their                properties.

This lesson includes:

  • one catch-up quiz
  • one learning summary
  • interactive game at the end


3) Spellings

It's Monday so let's practise our handwriting and our spellings at the same time. Concentrate on your joining of letters, have you joined all the letters that need joining?


4) Topic

This week we will be looking at China and Chinese new year. Open up the 'China Fact file' and also take a  look at Make some notes as you read. After this, open up the 'China Writing Frame' activity from the resource section and fill in the boxes. 


5) PE
