HOME LEARNING

 

A big hello from Miss Hollingsworth and Mrs Tierney!👋
 

We hope you and your families are safe and well!  WE MISS YOU ALL and hope to see you all soon!
 

Here are a variety of activities for the children to complete in Maths, Literacy and Science.  The activities are mainly worksheets which you can print off or work from on the screen.  These activities will reinforce what has already been taught at school and introduce some topics which have not yet been covered in class.

 

There are lots of different ideas that you may want to do - the children are not expected to complete everything! - ideas in italics are additional activities, as some parents have requested more work.  Please dip into the topics and complete as much as you feel you need to.

SCIENCE -  ROCKS   -

 

                     - Grouping Rocks PowerPoint.

                     

Lesson 1 - Compare and group together different types of rocks based on their appearance and physical properties.

                  i)  When you are out getting your daily exercise - look around you!

                       - where can you see rocks?

                       - What have rocks been used for?

                       - What do you notice about the rocks?  (Shape, size, colour etc)  Are they all the same?

 

                  ii) Collect some different types of rocks from your garden and local area.

                       - look closely at your rocks - what can you see?  Are there any crystals in the rocks?

                      - Sort your rocks into different groups.  How have you decided to group them?

 

                  iv)  Can you describe the properties of your rock?

                       - is your rock porous and permeable?  (Porous - can you see tiny holes in the rock which will allow air and  

                         water to pass through?  Permeable - does water pass through the rock?)

                              - Try putting a couple of drops of water onto your rock (do not put lots of water on it!)

                                 - What happens? If the water droplets stay on top of the rock like a puddle or drip off the side?  Then

                                                              your rock is IMPERMEABLE and does not allow water to pass through.

                                                              If the water droplets soak into the rock?  Then your rock is PERMEABLE and allows

                                                              water to pass through

                       - is your rock hard or soft? - scratch it on the ground, does it leave powder? 

                                                                   - Can you scratch your rock with another rock?  (whichever rock leaves the powder,

                                                                      is the softer rock.) 

                                                                   - Can you break your rock?

                                                                   - If the rock crumbles easily (e.g. chalk) then your rock is soft.

                     - how dense is your rock?   - Does it float or sink in water?   (Low density rocks float, high density sink).

                       (Density measures how tightly packed together the molecules of the rock are.  If they are tightly packed

                       together, then there is less air trapped in the rock and it will sink (high density).  If the molecules are more

                       spread out, they trap air between particles and are able to float (low density))

 

                  iii)  Can you find out more about your different rocks?  Do you know what type of rock it is?  You could use the

                         internet to find out about your different rocks.

 

                   iv)  You might want to draw your rocks and describe what you see!  Describe the properties of your rocks based

                          on your home experiments.  Try to use scientific vocabulary.

 

TOPIC - SUPERHEROES - This half term we will be thinking about Superheroes.

                       i)  Name all the superheroes you can think of.  What are their powers?  What makes them a superhero?

                            - You might want to draw your favourite superheroes.

                            - You might want to retell your favourite superhero story.

                            - You might want to create a factfile on your favourite superhero.

                       ii)  Can you think of any superheroes we have in real life?  Why would we call them a superhero?

                            - You might want to find out about the life of a real life superhero and write about them. 

                              (e.g. nurses, police, fire service, famous sports players...)

                                   - Know the number of days in a year and leap year.

                                   - Calculate how long something lasts.  (e.g. How long it takes to complete a task, using the start

                                     and finish time to work it out; looking at a tv guide - how long does a programme last?...)    

 

                     There are 3 different units depending on how competent your child is at telling the time.

                      i) O'clock and half past for the children who cannot tell the time.    

                      ii) 5 minute intervals for the children who know o'clock and half past and still struggle with minutes past the hour.

                      iii) Digital time for the children who are confident at telling the time using an analogue clock.          

                                                                 

                    All children should learn by heart, the months of the year rhyme.
