Week of 15th June

Dear Parents / Carers,

 

Thank you for continuing with supporting your child at home with their learning. As you are aware, Home Learning is changing as more children return to school. Teachers have done a brilliant job of providing daily home learning tailored to what the children would have been covering in school; unfortunately this level of personalisation is unsustainable following the phased introduction of additional children back to school. We deliberated about how best to adapt the home learning and have decided to try using and adapting resources created by Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust in conjunction with some tailored lessons to the Topics your child would have covered during this term.

 

We understand that the Home Learning needs to work for you and your child, and therefore we have put some alternative suggestions below, should you rather explore those. We are now displaying the home learning for the week rather than each day, as feedback suggested parents would prefer this so they could rearrange the week’s tasks to fit them and their child. Please, only do what you can of the suggestions below – do what works best for you and your child.

 

With thanks to Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust for their Learning Projects on which most of the weekly Reading, Spelling, Writing and Maths tasks are based.

Reading Tasks

Spelling Tasks

Monday

Read a chapter from a book you have at home. Now create a story about yourself that is related to an event or character in the book.

Tuesday

Either choose a book you know well or go back to the book you read yesterday. Using an ipad or camera, make faces of the emotions the main characters would have gone through in your book and take photos of them. Now explain the emotion for each picture and when the character would have felt this way.

Wednesday

Using speech bubbles and pictures of the characters, draw a conversation between two characters from the story you have been reading. You can include thought bubbles as well as speech bubbles to show your characters thoughts. Perhaps look at some comics for some ideas.

Thursday

Choose three significant events from the book you are reading and explain how you would've handled them differently from the characters in the story. Think about how it might have changed the outcome of the story. Sometimes a small action can have a big impact. 

Friday

A genie lands in the midpoint of the book you are reading and grants the two main characters three wishes. What do they wish for and why? Would their wishes have changed anything about the story? How?

Wider Curriculum Tasks  

30 Days Wild task

Promoting your local area

A visitor from another country is coming to stay with you (after lockdown!) and would like your expert knowledge of where the best places are to visit. You don't have to stay within Bracknell, you could encourage them to visit places further afield such as London, Windsor etc. Where would you take them each day? Plan an itinerary for each day detailing the transport that you would take to each location, how long you will spend there, what will be eaten and any activities that might take place. 

Art

Have a look at the BBC Bitesize lesson on exciting paintings. (The lesson is the same on both the Year 5 and Year 6 link)
