French

Have you seen the information on the MFL page about writing to a French penpal? As we know you love French, we think this would be a great opportunity for you! Just like us, children in France have been experiencing lockdown. You could ask the French children some questions about how they are finding it and you could share your experiences too! You can write in English, French or a mixture of both, whatever you feel most comfortable doing! If you are interested, send us or Mrs Livesey an email!

Now, let’s learn about the jungle animals in French. Use the 'La jungle' PowerPoint to teach yourself the words for different jungle animals. Listen to the audio to practise the correct pronunciation and copy the words down to learn how to spell them. Take note of which letters and sounds aren't what you expected! Make up actions for each animal and play charades.

Test how much you can remember with the ‘Memory magic’ PowerPoint.

This half term we are focusing on our identity. What makes us unique? What do we like and dislike? What are we really good at? We are all different and that’s what makes us great. We want you to watch this short clip about identity and values and then head over to Purple Mash to complete the My Identity activity. If you’re not sure, you could ask someone from your household what they like about you or something they think you’re really good at. Have fun and be kind to yourself!

  • What is that door doing in the middle of the road?
  • What do you think is underneath the road?

Story Starter!

Read this story starter. Your writing task today is to write the end of the story.

'Piece by piece, the street was disappearing.

In the distance a portal shone, sending soft, golden beams of light out across the evening sky. As the light kissed the clouds they blushed, becoming pink illuminations that stood and watched the street below like nosey spectators.

All that was now left of the street was the door. It was still open. There was still time. The figure in the distance began to run, but was he too late?'

Design and Technology

Our D&T topic this summer term is called ‘Seasonality’.

Seasonality of food refers to the times of year when a given type food is produced. This is usually the time when the item is the cheapest and the freshest on the market.

Watch this BBC Teach clip and learn about where our food comes from.

Have a look at the vegetable and fruit seasonal chart. Your task is to cook or bake something (for example a fruit salad) using some seasonal fruits and/or vegetables.

Make sure you ask your adult for some help. We would love it if you could send us some pictures too! 

Daily exercise

History

Did you know Tutankhamun became the pharaoh of Egypt aged only 9-10? You are going to learn more about this interesting Egyptian ruler by watching the clip and reading the information from BBC bitesize.

Like it says, when he died, he was buried in a tomb in the Valley of the Kings. His burial place was hidden for many centuries until it was discovered by the Egyptologist Howard Carter in 1922. Using the video to help you, you are going to write a diary entry from Howard Carter explaining all about the day you discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb. What was inside? How did you feel? What happened?

Daily exercise
