Now for Part 2 with the most important message!
Welcome to SATs week! This would have been our SATs week had we been in school, it’s a real shame that you cannot demonstrate how far you’ve come in your primary learning. However we are pleased that you all are continuing to develop your skills in all areas of the curriculum.
I hope that you enjoyed the VE commemorations over the weekend! Here’s a couple of pictures –
Our extension theme: Robots (Part 2)
We are continuing with the Robots theme started last week, you will have the opportunity to explore, design and even create your own robot! When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online. You will also make links with The Wizard of Oz referenced last week and begin writing a story featuring your own robot creation.

LI – Multiplying fractions and mixed numbers by integers
For this week the extension group will be studying from the Oak Academy website. These are similar to the White Rose Hub in that there is a teaching segment followed by independent work. We would welcome your feedback towards the end of the week on what you thought about this website and comparing it with the White Rose Hub. Please click the link below and scroll down to Week 1, ensure that you click on Monday and then complete the lesson. Each lesson starts with a quiz, then you watch a video. At various points in the video the teacher will ask you to pause the video and complete the task set. Sometimes this activity is shown on the video other times you will need to minimize the video and click on the button next activity (usually found on the left side of the page). When you have completed the task press resume video (usually found on the top right of the page)
LI – To represent fractions
LI – To understand the difference between drugs and the impact they can have on your body.
This week in science we are looking at the impact of drugs and alcohol on the body. This is a sensitive lesson that your parent may wish to do with you but it is part of the science and PSHE curriculum. It is important that you understand the difference between legal and illegal drugs and what impact the different drugs have on your body. I have included a guidance sheet for your parents to read if they want to.
For the first task please read Part 1 power point presentation.
Now choose which sheet you wish to do, remember mild is the easier version and hot/spicy is harder. You can copy the sheet into your home learning book or print it out. You have to label the body with different drugs you have found out about and what effect it has on the body. You can refer back to the power point presentation if you need to.
Next please read Part 2 power point, this is about smoking and what effect it has on the body and the history of smoking. Please then add your new information to the sheet you have already started on.
I would like to see your work so please email me a picture.
Last week we started thinking about our body in particular what happens when we feel nervous. Watch the video clip below which helps explain this bodily function.
You may now what to do a calming breathing exercise, if so try this one:
Have a good morning’s learning!
