Week Beginning 11th May

Here are the details of your home learning tasks for the week.  It would be great if you could do some of these and let us know what you've done.

 

You might want to follow this timetable to organise yourselves this week, but this is only a guide - you may choose to organise your working in another way.  There is no expectation that you will complete all this work, but it is all available to you to help with your learning.

In addition to the above, here are a few suggestions for some other things you might like to do this week.

 

Sound Maps

Origami

Enjoy focusing on a different sense by listening to and mapping the many sounds around you.

What to do

Find a place outdoors or where you can hear the outdoors like your garden, doorstep or a safe open window. Mark a cross in the centre of the paper to show where you are. Sit still and listen carefully for a few minutes to all the sounds you can hear, then draw them on the paper to show what they are and where the sound is coming from.

Talk about your map with someone once you’ve finished:

What might you hear?

Listen out for birds, the wind, cars, leaves, aeroplanes and more.

What was your favourite sound?

Which sound did you like the best and why?

Were there any sounds you didn’t know?

What was new and do you know where it came from? 

 

Origami is the art of paper folding and can be really good for our health.

It helps develop hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and mental concentration.

There are 3 different sets of instructions for you to have a go at on the school website or in the Google Classroom but you can find loads more online.

We would love to see what you make!

Art from Mrs Milne

Science from Mrs Arnold

Any activity that involves getting outside is a great idea at the moment in our opinion!  This week’s challenge from Mrs Milne involves getting creative with items from nature.  Check out Monday's Art@Home blog post for more details.    

Glitter aversion. Can you make the glitter magically move away from your finger?    

See the blog on Tuesday for details.
