Rhino Class – Learning Project WEEK 14 (13th July- 17th July) – Space

Hello,

Well, I cannot believe that this is the final week of not just the term, but the school year. I must say, this has been one of the most challenging and strange school years I have ever experienced and really do hope that things will return to normal very soon. It has certainly been a challenge to provide work on line for all to access as well as support children in the classroom at the same time.

Therefore, I would like to pass on my gratitude to all of you for the way you have supported your children’s learning at home during this time. It has been wonderful see all the learning that has been completed and I know a number of children have really flourished and progressed well with the amount of support they have been receiving at home. Thank you so much for all your efforts.

I wish you all a restful and safe summer holiday. I certainly think this year we have all earned it.

So for the final time this year, here are all the links for this week’s learning. As well as completing some of these activities, it is important to read daily and practise your x tables as much as possible.

Please click on the link below to access the Rhino Class Learning Project for this week:

Rhino Class Learning Project – Week 14- SPACE

This week’s project again includes weekly tasks for Maths, Reading, Writing and Spellings and a cross-curricular / topic project. All web links and instructions are included in the document. The timetable is just a suggestion and activities do not necessarily need to be completed in that order. However, try to complete as many of the tasks as you can during the week. 

Friday is a PD day at school, however I have included work for the Friday just in case your children fancy doing a full week of learning 😉

Comet Neowise,  is going to be visible with the naked eye from anywhere in the UK for the rest of July, astronomers say.

Formally named C/2020 F3 , the comet was first spotted by the NEOWISE space telescope on March 27 and will reach its closest point to Earth on July 23.

Can you spot it? What other information can you find about this comet?

Weekly spellings – please access the spellings to learn this week below. This week is week 6. Practise during the week with a test at the end of the week. Try putting the words into sentences too to ensure understanding of each word.

It was great last week to see so many examples of the work the children had completed as well as photos of them working, so if you like to share your child’s work with me (for rewards and feedback), again this can be done via the Class Dojo portfolio. As usual, if you have any queries, please continue to contact me via the Class Dojo app.

I will also set some daily challenges on a Tuesday and Thursday and send the link out via Class Dojo around 8am each day.

Kind regards and keep well

Mr Glover
