Home Learning – Tuesday 5.1.21

Morning Everyone,

First of all, let me wish you a ‘Happy new year.’

I wasn’t sure whether we would be in this situation again, having to resort to online learning, but here we are again…. I’m really sorry that we can’t all be together again in class but we will be able to organise things a little differently this time and hopefully we can all take part in some live lessons.

For today though, I have put together some links to access the activities that were planned for you to complete in class on your first day back.

Activity 1:

Spelling challenge: How many words can you make by using the letters from

‘Happy New Year Everyone’

1 dojo for every 10 words created and there will be 5 dojos for the longest word created. Send me your lists via class dojo

Activity 2:

English: Watch the video below for an animation called ‘Rooted’. You are going to be writing your own version of this, but for today, I would like you to create a storyboard for the events. Can you divide the story into 8 main parts?

Rooted Animation


Take an A4 piece of paper and divide into 8 sections and then draw an image for each part of the story along with a short description. This will help you tomorrow when we are going to write our own version of this animation. You may also want to think about some of the features of writing you are going to use. Think about what tools makes a good story?

Activity 3:

Maths: Today we are learning about the 11 and 12 x tables.

Below are links to the white rose video for today’s task and the corresponding activity sheets

Video lesson

1 Y4-Spring-Block-1-D1-11-and-12-times-table

Activity 4:

Science: What do you know about electricity? Like at the start of every new topic, we find out what you know and what you would like to know by completing a knowledge harvest. I have also included our new vocabulary sheet to test your prior knowledge of key words for this unit.

Electricity – Knowledge Harvest

Key Vocab

Activity 5:

Topic: Our new topic for this term is the Anglo – Saxons. Again, here we will start by conducting a knowledge harvest and raising some key questions that hopefully we will be to answer as we learn.

Anglo Saxons – knowledge Harvest

You may know very little about the Anglo – Saxons at this point of your learning, so to help you generate some questions, below is a video from BBC Bitesize with some basic information.

Who were the Anglo – Saxons?
