Please finish watching the film of Holes today, if you haven't already.
As a short activity today, please send through some examples of how the film is similar and different to the book.
Where there many differences?
Did you find out which character Louis Sachar played in the film?
Please also make sure that you finish off and email in your Wednesday 'double page' spread showing your personal responses to the book. We can't wait to see them!!
Today we will be continuing to develop our cooking skills.
In school we will be making chicken pie. Please see the PDF recipe we will be following together.
At home, ideally we would like the children to make a savory dish this week. This could be any sort of pie dependent on dietary requirements or a savory slice (cheese and onion, beef and vegetable chicken and mushroom etc.) Sweet dishes that would develop similar skills are any type of fruit pie or tart.
The key skills to learn and develop are:
* Following a recipe with independence,
* Using an oven/hob,
* Rolling pastry.
For maths today, I am going to give you a bit of free rein. Treat this lesson like a buffer zone. What part of fractions do you struggle with? I will recommend a lesson from bitesize to follow but you can choose one of the others if you are less secure in that area. These are all lessons we looked at in the Autumn term but with maths practicing regularly is important.
I think you should revise:
Adding and Subtracting fractions
But you can also choose:
Finding fractions of amounts
Converting mixed numbers to improper fractions.
Equivalent fractions/ Simplifying fractions
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.
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.
Snow activity - If it has snowed as the weather suggests it will - Go and enjoy it!
It hasn't snowed activity - Green high five - Find some soil in your garden or fill a plant pot. Take your hand and press it firmly, fingers spread apart, into the compost or soil so that you can clearly see your handprint. • Now scatter grass seed or some other seeds carefully within the indent made by your hand. • Put the pot somewhere sheltered and water daily if you've done this activity in a pot. Watch your handprint appear! You can link this activity with our value of the month patience.
Here are a list of websites that suggest fabulous ideas to help you and your family get outside!
