Good morning Oak Class! I hope you’re all ok and have had a lovely couple of days with Mrs Poole!


Day 3 – Wednesday

BBC website –

Find English for today’s lesson 10th June.

LI – to use commas for clarity.


For those of you doing the Explorers and Adventurers work, I hope you’ve enjoyed the first two days work.

Remember, when following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

LI – to write a non-chronological report.

Task 1. Find out what ‘The Race to the South Pole’ was by watching the short clip on the Royal Museums Greenwich website. Google search Royal Museums Greenwich and then, in their search function in the top right corner, type Race to the South Pole. You will see the top result says – The Race to the South Pole: Scott and Amundsen. Select this and then scroll down slightly to find the clip under the subheading, What was the race to the South Pole?

 Task 2. Now read more about the race, making notes in your Home Learning Book as you read, using pages 6-8 The Race to the South Pole of the PDF Antarctic Adventures here:

Task 3. Now find out more about the two rival explorers, Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen, by watching and reading these sources:

Watch: BBC Teach – KS2: Robert Falcon Scott here: each/class-clips- video/ks2-robert-falcon- scott/zdhdgwx

Read: Ducksters biography – Roald Amundsen, here: https://www.ducksters.c om/biography/explorers/ roald_amundsen.php

Task 4. Based on all you have read and watched, create a non-chronological report which could feature in National Geographic Kids magazine. Try to include as many facts as possible– planning your layout before you start. You may wish to include images or drawings too.

Extra information and ideas for your layout can be found here: DK Find Out website – Who was the first to the South Pole?: https://www.dkfindout.c om/us/history/explorers/ who-was-first-to-south-pole/

Stilling Time

Today, we are going to learn about and have a go at Mindfulness Patterns and the importance of doodling. I’d like you to begin by reading through the following presentation:

All About Mindfulness Patterns Powerpoint

Now that you have read that information, have a go at doing some mindful doodling. The is a link sheet below that you can print off and use as a basis for your doodling. Don’t worry if you can’t print it, you can work straight onto paper or into your Home Learning Book. Enjoy!

Mindfulness Patterns

PE: Please do Mr Garvey’s PE challenge for today.

Topic – Art

For our Topic work today, we will be continuing with the art lessons on the Oak Academy website. I hope you enjoyed the first lesson last week. They are great lessons for home learning because you can do them without any special equipment – just things you’ve got at home. Please click on the link below, select foundation subjects and scroll down to the art lessons. Then select Lesson 2 – How can we use visual texture to add interest to our artwork?

LI – to learn how can we use visual texture to add interest to our artwork.

Well done for working so hard today! See you all tomorrow! Mrs Fitz x
