Eagles Learning Zone

Welcome to our learning zone.  On this page we will include a range of work following the national curriculum. We understand that some of you may not feel confident in some of these topics, in which case use the web sites below to support your knowledge and learning.

We would suggest that you work to a regular timetable (Monday to Friday) incorporating ttrockstars, Numbots, classroom secrets, maths worksheets, reading and English. But also include exercise (Joe Wicks workout on YouTube) and play in the garden. Don’t forget art and craft activities.

These are strange times, but they also present us with an opportunity to slow down and appreciate one another.

Friday 3rd April 2020


Morning my little eagles,

Don’t forget your Joe Wicks workout on YouTube – not sure if he is continuing through the Easter holidays. 

Thunk of the day

 

Spelling test today (Suffixes)

  1. Asking
  2. Jumped
  3. Fastest
  4. Hunter
  5. Shouted
  6. Neater
  7. Lightest
  8. Yawning
  9. Lightening
  10. Lightning

Today, continue to listen to an audible talking book of your choice (link on web page).

After you have listened, tell your parents the key things / events that occurred in the section you listened to today (Summarise). Then, what you think will happen next (predicting).

Again, any new words you heard? Look them up, find what they mean and use them today.

Also, continue with your diary and practice your joined handwriting.

A little puzzling maths this morning – Round and Round the Circle (Attached below – along with worksheets)

This morning, as we cannot be together for PE, use the time to go for a walk with your parent/s or cycle ride or run – remember to stay safe and socially distance yourselves.

 

This afternoon, take a walk in your garden and observe closely the signs of spring. Look at the trees and plants starting to show signs of change: leaves are budding, birds are chattering, and butterflies are appearing.

Chose a dandelion in flower and take a picture of it. Now investigate how dandelions change from flower to seed.

How long does this take?

Photograph your chosen dandelion every day over Easter and observe the changes.

Then, tidy your workspace put everything away and ask your parent/s what you could do to help around the house.

Maths Puzzle – something to puzzle over, over Easter.  If you think you have the answer, email it in to me.

Easter Egg Problem

Tom is a Easter egg maker. He makes lots of eggs, a number between 30 and 50.

When he puts them in packs of 5 he finds that he has 1 left over.

When he puts them in packs of 3 he finds that he has 2 left over.

How many Easter eggs did he make?

Hope you all have a lovely Easter, but remember continue to be like the second little pig – stay at home and stay safe.

Minasan ohayōgozaimasu,

Anyone know what this language is today?

Don’t forget your Joe Wicks workout on YouTube. 

If you fancy it here is a maths puzzle – when you think you have the answer email it to me.

 

Thunk of the day

 

Today, continue listening to an audible talking book of your choice (link on web page).

After you have listened, tell your parents the key things / events that occurred in the section you listened to today (Summarise), then, what you think will happen next (predicting).

Again, any new words you heard? Look them up, find out what they mean and use them today.

Also, continue with your diary; today include a passive sentence.

A sentence is written in active voice when the subject of the sentence performs the action in the sentence. e.g. The girl was washing the dog. The girl is the subject and at the start of the sentence.

A sentence is written in passive voice when the subject of the sentence has an action done to it by someone or something else. e.g. The dog was being washed by the girl. The subject is at the end of  the sentence.

 

A little maths warm-up this morning –

L.O. interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through 0

 So, chose a number – not too large – and then count backwards (descending) in to negative numbers making sure you include the 0.  E.g. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, -1,-2, -3 etc. or chose a negative number and count up (ascending) making sure you include the 0. Then try the same but counting in twos, threes or nines. If not so confident, stick to counting in ones.

L.O.   compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons

Today we are looking at quadrilaterals.

Can you remember what they are?  If not sure, check it out at https://www.mathsisfun.com/.

What can you remember about the internal angles of quadrilaterals?

A few days ago you worked out missing angles from a triangle by knowing that the internal angles of a triangle always add up to 180 degrees.

So, if you know the internal angles of a quadrilateral then you should be able to work out the missing angles. Remember, a square is a quadrilateral and it contains 4 right angles.

Use the PowerPoint below and then have a look at the sheets - remember, you don't have to print them off you could just write the answers in your school book.

 

This afternoon, you can do a little bit of science.

Use your bar chart from last week’s science to show what creatures you found in your garden. Use the key questions (below) to separate the different creatures and create a flow chart. (Example also attached below)

Then, tidy your workspace, put everything away and ask your parent/s if they would like help preparing the evening meal.

 Hope all is well with you all and you are keeping safe.

 All the best, Mr E

Wednesday 1st April 2020


Buongiorno a tutti,

When planning these lessons, I follow the Eagles school timetable and National Curriculum, but don’t worry if you do not manage to cover everything in one day. I appreciate that you all have different interests and strengths and I also appreciate that it is more difficult to learn when you are away from the normal school environment. It might help if you were to make a timetable that works for both you and your parents. The work I am providing for you is work that you would have been doing in school and once you are in a routine to complete the work, it will become easier. Use the timetable so that when it is time for a break – take a break and when it is the end of day stop work and play.

Remember, April Fool’s day today so you have until midday to play a trick on your parents.

Don’t forget your Joe Wicks workout on YouTube. 

Thunk of the day

Today, continue to listen to an audible talking book of your choice (link on web page).

After you have listened, tell your parents the key things / events that occurred in the section you listened to today (Summarise). Then, what you think will happen next (predicting).

Again, any new words you heard? Look them up, find what they mean and use them today.

Also, continue with your diary. Today included some modal verbs.

Modal verbs can be used to show how possible something is,

or how likely it is to happen/have happened. Modal verbs can be used

to show possibility in a sentences?

E.G.

Mum might take us swimming after school.

“Hurry up! We will be late!” said Dad.

You must be hot in that thick coat.

 

A little maths warm-up this morning –

L.O. count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1,000,000

So, chose a number – any number up to 1,000,000. Then, count either forwards or backwards in 100s. So, 900.002 = 899, 902 = 899,802 = 899,702 etc.  If not so confident, use a smaller number.

L.O.   compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons

Today we are revisiting angles. What can you remember about measuring angles? Think about acute, obtuse and reflex angles. Can you remember what they are?  If not sure, check it out at https://www.mathsisfun.com/.

Then have a look at the sheets below.

This afternoon, we can do a little bit of computing. See if you can show your parents how to do some coding.

Using SCRATCH https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/31876/, could you create an Easter card?

Get your sprit to say Happy Easter. If you want go further Google Sratch tutorials – what else can you get your sprit to do?

Then, tidy your workspace, put everything away and ask your parent/s if they would like a drink of anything.

Buenos dias mis pequeñas,

Hope you had a lovely weekend? Helped everyone stay safe by doing your bit and staying in.

Don’t forget your Joe Wicks workout on YouTube. 

A Thunk to start the day

There are NO right or wrong answers to these questions – simply YOUR answers.
You do, however, need to think about your answers and be able to justify them – in other words, don’t say the first thing that comes into your head, AND, be prepared to fully explain your answers when you give them.
Listen to the answers given by others and treat them seriously – even if they sound odd, they may all be valid if they can be justified.

Don’t forget to learn your new spellings from your sheet given out on last Friday – test this Friday.

Today, continue to listening to an audible talking book of your choice (link on web page).

After you have listened, tell your parents the key things / events that occurred in the section you listened to today (Summarise). Then, what you think will happen next (predicting).

Again, any new words you heard? Look them up, find what they mean and use them today.

Also, continue with your diary included coordinating conjunctions today.

E.g. and, but, or

I could do my school work or I could go outside

I could do my school work and I can make sure I get all the answers right.

I could do my school work, but my pencil has broken.

Remember, if you use ‘but’ as a coordinating conjunction, you will need to use a comma.

L.O. recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets

Look at the worksheet with different 3d shapes. Some have curved edges (cone, cylinder, hemisphere, sphere). Some have straight edges – these are called polyhedrons (Cube, cudoid, square based pyramid, triangular based pyramid and prisms: triangular, pentagonal, hexagonal etc).

Now use the other work sheets to have ago at linking the nets to the appropriate shapes, then have ago at building some 3d shapes using nets.

 

 This afternoon, watch these videos on why we have time zones around the world and how they are divided up.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvsfr82/articles/zjk46v4

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9FpineKvQU

 

Questions for you to answer:

What is a time zone?

How many time zones are there?

What is the imaginary line called that divides up the time zones?

What two points do the imaginary run to?

Where does the Prime Meridian start?

 

You might want to find out more about the Royal Observatory at Greenwich

Then, tidy your workspace, put everything away and ask your parent/s if there is anything you could do to help which would make their day easier.

Guten Morgen euch allen,

Also, continue with your diary. Today, include colons to introduce lists.

Colons can be used before a list of words, phrases or clauses.

 E.g.

Here are the things you will need: flour, two eggs, cheese and fresh basil.

There are some tricky rules to remember about using a colon to introduce a list so check the Twinkl PowerPoint. (attached below)

Also, check out Neo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymgszCIoHbA

Things I want to do when life gets back to normal: walk with friends; talk with friends; buy toilet paper and be back at school with the Eagles.

Notice how you can use a semi-colon as well if the items in your list contain more than one or two words.

 

A little maths warm-up this morning –

L.O. count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1,000,000

So, chose a number – any number up to 1,000,000. Then, count either forwards or backwards in 10s. So, 900.002 = 899, 992 = 899,982 = 899,972 etc.  Phew, that was a little tricky. If not so confident use a smaller number.

L.O.   compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons

Right, we are going to look at the properties of triangles. Start to think about the different types of triangles.

How are they different?

What are the properties that make them different?

Can you remember what all three internal angles in a triangle add up to?

How many degrees are there  in a straight line?

Now watch the PowerPoint and see if you can tackle the appropriate sheet for you. If you have it sorted, then finish with the challenge sheet.

 

This afternoon, as we can’t be together for PE, use the time to go for a walk with your parent/s or cycle ride or run – remember to stay safe and socially distance yourselves.

 

Finish off the afternoon with some PSHE (Personal, social and health education).

The land of the Red People

Theme: Living in the Wider World

Topic: Rules, Rights and Responsibilities

How many different ways can people be different?  [e.g. eye colour, height etc.]

Just as the class is made up of lots of different people, all with their individual attributes and qualities, so our society is made up of lots of different groups of people who similarly all have their own attributes and qualities.

Think about some of those different groups of people and think about what they bring to society in the United Kingdom.

Read the story The Land of the Red People  (Attached document)

 

Follow up with some key questions about the story such as:

  • Were the Red People happy before the other people arrived in their land?
  • How did they feel as the other people arrived in their land?
  • Do you think the land was better or worse for having all the different people living there? Why?
  • Why do you think the Leader’s son thought it would be better to have just the Red People living in the land again? Would you have agreed with him? Why / why not?
  • What do you think the message of the story is?

 

Now, think of the different groups that make up your school; your local community; other parts of the UK. 

 

Then, tidy your workspace, put everything away and ask your parent/s if there is anything you could do to help which would make their day easier.

Hope all is well with you all and you are keeping safe.

 All the best, Mr E
