Home Learning Activities 

           


Well done for working so hard during these unusual times. As it is Half Term, have a break from lessons; take time to relax and get up to fun activities. If you get stuck for ideas of things to keep yourself occupied during the week, take a look at these activities. They don't involve looking at screens - they could help you explore the world around you, if only from your home. We hope you enjoy them - why not challenge a family member?!


 Feel free to let us know what you've been up to (including pictures if possible) as your fellow classmates love to keep in touch by reading the class blogs!


Stay safe.


Best wishes,


LKS2 Team

Home Learning for Week Commencing 18th May 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Please find below the next grid for Year 4 home learning tasks for w/c 18/05/20.

I hope you are finding this new format helpful and easy to work from. You will find both the online learning grid and offline learning grid below this post. There are also other worksheets or booklets that you may need to use for some of the activities.

If your child is taking part in our Emergency Care provision, they will also be continuing to follow the programme for each day they are in school.

Should your child struggle with the activities set, please try those of a younger year group to help build their confidence. Do not feel that all activities must be completed. However, if possible, please could you prioritise the English/Spelling/Phonics and maths tasks daily, thus ensuring your child is able to make progress.

If you have any problems, please let me know as I'll be keen to help. Please do keep emailing to let me know how you’re getting on with the home learning or other activities you’re enjoying.

Stay safe and keep smiling!.

Home learning with D and T 

I am so impressed with these boys! Like many of our Whitsand pupils, they have settled into home learning life now and developed a good daily routine. They are demonstrating that learning is achieved through a variety of activities, not just the ones we set on the learning grid. D and T have learnt vital construction strategies using Lego and wooden blocks to learn about weight distribution in science and Neolithic structures in history. T had to measure accurately in baking and is keeping fit by spending time with his family outdoors. 

Well done boys! It's great to see your photos everyone so please keep sharing your achievements and special moments.

 


Birthday celebrations 

Double Birthday Boys

There was great excitement for two birthday boys last weekend, who were celebrating their 9th birthday and as you can see there was a delicious cake involved, along with a little scooting!

Happy Birthday to A and A!

A message from Mrs Clarke 

Special moments and adventures

Here are a few photos of what I've been up to on lockdown. Our fire pit in the field has been very well used and we have enjoyed cooking sausages, potatoes and marshmallows in the sunny evenings. Muffin the dog has been exploring the footpaths around our village with us and played fancy dress with my children pretending to be a gangster rapper! We've continued our bike rides on the moors which is helping us stay fit after all those sausages on the fire.
Our home learning is slightly different to yours as my children are in secondary school but we are doing our best to get through it together. To all the parents out there - my experience has been a rollercoaster of emotions, sometimes frustrating, sometimes exciting, but mostly rewarding. I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who is doing their best in this situation to complete some home learning. I hope you are able to experience new things as a family which maybe wouldn't be possible in school or share special traditions passed down through the family now some of us have a little more time on our hands.

 


Birthday in lockdown 

This Whitsand pupil had her 9th birthday in lockdown and even though she was sad that she couldn't share it with all of her friends she had a lovely day. Her favourite presents were her bike and a sewing machine! She had a home-made chocolate birthday cake with smarties in the centre!

She has
 been working through the learning grid activities and has also completed her 88 club! The daffodil bulbs she planted at the beginning of lockdown have now flowered into the cutest little daffodils, as you can see in the photo. She says she is missing everyone and can't wait until she is back at school with you all.

 


VE Day activities 

Somebody's been baking wartime recipes for the VE Day celebrations...I wish I had smellovision! He's also been taking up the art of photography with an intense study of his feet!

Home learning - Diwali 

Wow! These year 4 brothers are clearly talented in the art of Diwali decoration and have carried out research around the Hindu festival. Their use of colour and pattern is beautiful and making these dainty designs out of clay is certainly a good skill to have learnt - well done boys!

 


Whitsand pupils before and during lockdown 

These year 4 sisters have shared their memories of a special visit to the zoo before lockdown. They were able to get up close to the animals and be helpers for the day. During lockdown, they have been busy doing home learning activities and baking. They even brought in some delicious cupcakes for the teaching staff in school - thank you!
