Hello Acorns, 
 
As it is half term, there will be no new work on the website this week! I will leave up last weeks work in case you would still like to do it. 
 
I hope you have a lovely week off and enjoy the lovely weather while staying nice and safe. 
 
From Miss Heater.

Hello Acorns, 
 
Today I have added another literacy task which involves reading an extract from a book. The book is 'How to train your dragon' by Cressida Cowell. You will need to answer the questions I have given you. 
 
The next part of the science has also been added for you. As well as a new Anglo-Saxons activity. 
 
I hope you are all well and are enjoying your home learning. 
 
(In case you have not done last weeks activities and would still like to, I have moved them into the section below)
 
 
Love Miss Heater 
 
Some other activities you might like to do:
  •        Make an information leaflet about one aspect of Anglo-Saxon life i.e. Food, Homes, 
  •        Make a wanted poster about an Anglo-Saxon person
  •        Write a story or diary entry about Anglo-Saxon life.
  •        Create some Anglo-Saxon art using the Anglo-Saxon runes.
 
School Closure
 During the school closure, children in Acorns class should continue with their usual home learning tasks:
  • Reading for half an hour daily;
  • Practising your times tables on TTRS or on Maths Frame;
  • Learning to spell the common exception words identified in your home learning book and any others you cannot spell yet;
  • Finishing (or starting!) your Take-away-Task for this half term, which is on the class page of the school website.

You may also use any of the resources in the attached documents to keep you busy and learning!

If you wish, you may also look at the resources available for Catkins class if these are more suitable for you.

 

An excellent resource can be found at: www.hamilton-trust.org.uk                                                      The From our blog section has Learning at Home Packs for Maths and English with daily lessons for each year group.These include learning reminders, practice sheets at different levels (mild=easier; hot=harder) and answers.

Could you design your own Slindon Primary Tapestry just like the Bayeux Tapestry? Using your awesome sewing skills why not try and create your own scene!

How would you tell the story of Slindon Primary School today? Who would be in your pictures? What activities would you include to show what life is like in our primary school? Would you show important items like: computers, the adventure playground, the huge oak tree? What scenes would show people in the future how we learnt and played in 2020?

 

You must have been beavering away and learning so much about the Anglo-Saxons and life in ancient Britain! I have been thinking about what they wore. Can you find out what they wore? We have some ideas of what they wore because archaeologists have found amazing artefacts like jewellery, buttons and belt buckles. Can you design and make your own belt buckle? Here is a planning sheet for a few ideas.
