Guided Reading

Today you are going to listen to the whole of Chapter 1.  We are going to focus on 'The Poacher's Pocket'.  There are several examples of detailed description based around this setting in the book.  Using the text extracts from the book, you are going to draw a picture of the Poacher's Pocket using the description to inform your ideas.  You can do this either on paper and email it in to your teacher or there is a Purple Mash 2Paint page set up which you can use if you wish.

For PE on Friday's we will be re-looking at PE with Joe so lets have a quick re-cap of what his workouts were like. Remember you can also use this time to go for a run or a walk with a family member.

Woodlands

 

Did you know spending time outdoors in nature is good for you? It’s true! Being around trees and wildlife can boost your mood and reduce stress, and that's something we could all benefit from right now. Getting active outside is a great way to improve your family’s fitness too.

If you have a garden, there’s plenty of fun you can have in it during winter. In England, you’re also allowed to exercise outside once a day in your local area.

Activity:

Go stargazing. Whilst it is still getting dark early in the evenings have a look at the sky. What pictures and patterns can you see? Do you know any of the constellations? https://www.darkskydiscovery.org.uk/ This website might provide you with more information. I chose this activity because when I am missing family or feeling lonely, I like to look at the stars as I know they can see the same stars as me! Makes me feel close even when we are apart. 

 

Here are a list of websites that suggest fabulous ideas to help you and your family get outside!

Topic - History

Today we are going to learn about what it was like to live on the 'Home Front' during WW2.  We are going to focus on rationing.

There is a sheet full of information along with a few videos and weblinks.  You can choose the way you would like to learn about this topic e.g. read the information sheet, watch the videos, look at web pages, books from home or use all of the information - it is up to you!!

Activities: Again, you can present your information about this topic in one of the ways you choose below.

(YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ALL OF THEM!! JUST PICK ONE!)

Option 1: Create contrasting meal plans - one for life today and one for when rationing was in effect.  There are worksheets below you can either print off or copy out onto paper.  Think about what the key differences are in your meals.

Option 2: Create a non-chronological report/book page about Rationing in WW2.  It should include information about: What was food rationing?  Why did food rationing happen? What types of foods were rationed and why? Other interesting details!

Option 3: Research and create a war time recipe at home.  Please ask parents permission and ask for help with any cooking etc.  There are some recipes below that you can use which only include war time rations but there are also lots of other options.  Don't forget to send us a picture of anything you make!
