Wednesday 10th February
If you're not joining us for our catch up this afternoon, why not have a go at making your own Viking shield ready for next term's project! I'd love to see some photos! Here are some ideas to get you started:
Tuesday 9th February
This afternoon is your final session on your booklet that we started last Wednesday, meaning that you will be writing your report today. Use the structure that you used for your non-chronological report on rocks to split the information into suitable paragraphs and remember to keep the language formal!
This is really good practice for formal vs informal language because you are also thinking about your chatty diary entry so it's a great way to show that you understand the difference.
Listen to some of our amazing earthquake soundscapes by following the link below:
There is another Kahoot quiz to play, all about rocks. It combines things that you have learnt so far this term but if you need a refresher then maybe look at the slides below first!
When you are ready to have some fun, follow the instructions below:
Go to Kahoot on:
Enter the Game Pin 031626
Put your first name for your nickname and press enter
The Kahoot quiz will be there to play until Wednesday 10th February.
Who will be first on the podium this week?
If you would like to see myself, Miss Dury and Miss Harrison perform the graphic score, click on the link below:
I'm sure you can do much better than we did. I can't wait to see all of your performances.
Monday Update: below is the video you need for this lesson. Please use this instead of the link on the document.

Volcanoes - Geography
2. Today's reading is on the link below.
Useful pages for each group are:
- Phonics Groups 1 and 2 up to page 7.
- Phonics Groups 3 and 4 up to page 11.
- Phonics Group 5 - the whole thing.
3. The link below is the activity for the lesson. The first page is an example of a volcano with the labels that I would like you to use on your model. You don't need to print this out and fill it in (unless you want to!) but please make sure that however you create your model, you use the labels from the first sheet.
4. The second page has the questions that I'd like you to answer after reading the presentation or watching the videos. I don't expect you all to do all of the questions.
- Phonics Groups 1 and 2, please complete questions 1 and 2.
- Phonics Groups 3 and 4, please answer questions 1, 2 and 3.
- Phonics Group 5, please answer all of the questions.

Mary Anning - History
Some of the words in this lesson will be challenging for your children to read. Please encourage them to listen to Mrs Clarke on the video and pause it when they get to a word they find tricky. They can repeat the word and practise saying it themselves. There are separate question sheets for children who may need some support with finding information in a lengthy text - the relevant section of the text has been cropped and placed beneath the appropriate question. If your child doesn't need this support, please encourage them to scan the text to find a section that might contain the answer they need.
Please do not expect your child to answer all of the questions, unless they are happy to do so. For those finding this challenging, three or four questions will be enough.
For an extra challenge, can you write (in your own words) what the different types of plate boundaries are? Maybe you could build some models using Lego or something similar and send me some photos?!
Some of the plates move towards each other.
Some of the plates pull away from each other.
Some of the plates slide against each other.
Use the slides to find their names and describe what happens at the boundaries (earthquakes, volcanoes etc.)
