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.

Morning Chucks,

 

I would like to wish an enormous Happy Birthday to Emma

 

On Thursday the 21st of May at 4pm Rob Biddulph, a children's author and illustrator, is attempting to break the record for the world's largest art lesson.

You might know him from his books 'Odd Dog Out' or 'Blown Away', or maybe, more recently, through #DrawWithRob series (as seen on the BBC and just about everywhere on the internet!).

If you would like to join him in his attempt then register at: <https://edu9.sprintsend.co.uk/b1/link.php?M=3326941&N=439&L=753&F=H

(You don’t need to donate to enter)

Thunk of 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.

 

 

Today, continue listening to an audible talking book of your choice (https://stories.audible.com/start-listen).

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.

Dear Martin

Theme: Living in the Wider World

Topic: Money

Subjects and Issues

Money Responsibility

Last week we looked at the definitions of the terms Loan, Credit, Debt and Interest.

  1. Loan – a situation where someone (a person, a bank etc.) lends someone else some money
  2. Credit – can mean ‘in credit’ meaning that someone has money. A ‘credit card’ is used as a way of lending money to pay for items. The person who has the credit card must pay back the credit card company at a later date
  3. Debt – a situation where someone owes someone else (a person a bank etc.) an amount of money
  4. Interest – can mean different things. In terms of loans it refers to an additional charge a company (bank, credit card company etc.) makes for lending the money. The longer it takes to repay the loan the more interest is charged

We also looked at what are the important questions that people should ask before they borrow money or take out a loan?

  • Do I really need the item I am borrowing the money for?
  • Can I afford to pay it back?
  • When will I be able to pay it back?
  • Would it be safer or better to save for the item?

Dear Martin

This week we are going to look at the ‘Dear Martin’ activity sheet.

Martin is an expert on giving advice on money matters.

Read the three scenarios given and decide what advice they think Martin should give each person. 

Now present your advice to your parents. Use the ‘useful questions’ above to help with the advice.

 

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.

 

Joke of the day

Why did the student eat his homework?

Because the teacher told him it was a piece of cake!

 

Don’t forget to register for the Rob Biddulph attempt for the world's largest art lesson.

Have a lovely day and stay safe,

Mr E

A little poem by my favourite poet Spike Milligan to hopefully make you smile

 

Teeth

By Spike Milligan

 

English teeth, English teeth!

Shining in the sun

A part of British heritage

Aye, each and every one.

 

English teeth, Happy teeth!

Always having fun

Clamping down on bits of fish

And sausages half done.

 

English teeth, Heroes’ teeth!

Hear them click and clack!

Let’s sing a song in praise of them –

Three cheers for the Brown, Grey

and Black.

This afternoon, we are going to continue with our science topic of electricity.

We are going to start off with some videos on BBC bitesize today

What is electricity?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z2882hv/articles/zcwnv9q

What are conductors and insulators?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z2882hv/articles/zxv482p

What is power?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z2882hv/articles/ztyjmsg

How can you change a circuit?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zq99q6f/articles/zt8vg82

 

Now what do you think will happen when you add more batteries (cells) to the brightness of bulb?

Make your prediction – then watch the video below

Bright, brighter, brightest

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

What did you observe?

Did you notice the greater the cells the brighter the bulb?

What would happen if you increased the number of bulbs?

Make your prediction – then watch the video below

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oW03pztkqG4

What did you observe?

Did you notice the greater the number of bulbs the dimmer the bulbs?

So you can increase the brightness of your bulb by increasing the batteries (cells). But, if you increase the bulbs in the circuit the brightness of the bulbs decrease.

Who invented the first battery and when?

How has it changed our life since its discovery?

What uses batteries around your house?

 

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

 

Today's Joke

What did the Dalmatian say after lunch?
