I hope you all know how the systems work now: if not please look at some of the old “Daily Plans” or ask me on Teams. The use of Teams went really well last week, thank you. I have tidied up “Files” a bit more and, I think, made it easier to use and find things. Please let me know if you have any issues with it.
I want us to spend some time reflecting on the learning we have done in all areas of the curriculum in P5/6. What have we done? Try to make a list in a word document with your name as part of the title (eg “Joe H Learning in P56”) and up-load it into the new folder “Learning in P56”. Try to not focus on Maths and Literacy, but all the other areas.
Spelling activity: choose a list of Fry’s words that is appropriate for yourself. Create a Word document with a table of 2 columns and 25 rows. Write your chosen 25 words in the first column. Using a dictionary, on-line or book, put a definition of the word in the second column next to it. I have created an example to support you if you are not sure how to do this. I have also created a dedicated folder in “Files” for this work. Please include your name as part of the file name to differentiate it from the others. Ethan is now an expert at “HotPotatoes” quizzes and has already made several. I am hoping that he can lead the learning and teach some of you how he did it. Please try them and tell me what you think. Here is a link https://hotpot.uvic.ca/ to where you can download the program and here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3pMWXqeqdo is a tutorial on how to use one of the applications in it. I think we could also use it for maths, possibly to help teach some of the children in the lower school, and maybe set some more challenging activities for your classmates.
Topic –What about making a film? Do you have Windows Media Player on your computer? If not please try to download and install it. Is there any other way we could film it? Could we use telephones? What apps could we use? I have created a dedicated folder for this work in “Files” as well.
Has everyone finished their work on money yet? If not, finish money first and then move onto measure. I think all 4 parts of TJay 2a Chapter 13 (a,b,c and d) are useful. Most of you seem to be working your ways well through this. It will help support your work on decimals to 3 places.
|TJay 1b||TJay 2a||TJay 2b|
|Money||Chapter 7||Chapter 8||Chapter 7|
|Measure||Chapter 15||Chapter 13a,b,c and d||Chapter 13|
Here is an additional maths resource for you all, which you might want to prepare for Monday:
Education City: You all appear to still have quite a lot of unfinished activities so I will wait until I publish some more.
I have created a set of folders dedicated to Mrs Lockharts work. Go back through these, making sure you have done each one.
Keep your personal projects going- you still have the folder to post them in to.
Logan S is growing vegetables as a health project. Ethan has also now started growing strawberries. Anyone else?
Keep your daily diary going, recording what you are doing, what exercise you do, what you eat and how you feel.
Continue to practise your French using the resources from the link below: https://powerlanguage.courses/forfamilies/french/ For those of you that have finished the above French resource here two more for you: https://www.french-games.net/frenchtopics and https://www.linguascope.com/secure/default.php You will need a password for the second one, which is on the document “Linguascope confirmation”.
Don’t forget to do the day’s activities on BBC “Bitesize”.
Exercise with Joe (or his girlfriend!?) https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/joinin/bp-joe-wicks-workout
And finally “Covid Related Activities”: please read it.
Take care all of you and have a good weekend.
