Term 6 - Online Learning

As school is reopening and teachers are taking classes again online learning needs to change slightly from last term.
Generally the resources can be accessed on school 360 very easily. once logged on all you have to do is click on the resources tab and then everything flows from there. 
Please remember to take [photos of the work and send them in on the classdojo, as the teachers genuinely love seeing all the children's work, it helps us feel in touch with everyone. Also, there are dojo points up for grabs when you share your super work. 
It is a very strange time, hopefully life will get back to some form of normality soon. 
Please stay safe,
Mr Chapman

This week is national Upcycling week. I have planned some activities to look at recycling and reusing materials. 
Art Hub - Draw a bin wagon, but add extra details to your drawing to make it a recycling bin lorry. Around your drawing you can draw pictures of items that can be recycled. To add extra challenge, include labekls and reasons why it is good to try and recycle. 
Family Learning Challenge: Save your plastic and cardboard rubbish over the week. Explore ways it can be reused. On the 'Home Learning Challenge' sheet I have included examples of ways to upcycle, I am going to try and make a water wall with plastic bottles and tubes! 
E-safety for 5-7 year olds is about staying safe when playing games online. Children do know what to do, but constant revisiting helps to keep the knowledge fresh in their minds. In real life it is often a lot harder that they think to not fall for dangers when playing games, it is so easy top click on a pop ups without thinking, or to accidentally use a real name. 
E-safety for 8-10 year olds links in with the younger age bracket. This time a character called 'Ellie' needs advice about who to talk to. 
Science: This resource has some fascinating activities to help explore how gases work. Watch out it might get a little messy. 
Term 6 - Week 5 - Monday 29th June
This week is national camera week. 
Art Hub - Draw a camera! Listen carefully and follow the instructions to draw a camera. Don't forget to send in a photo of your drawings for your dojo points (You can also send them to Arthub for kids, they like to receive pictures of children completing their art tasks)
Family Learning Challenge: I am looking forward to this one. Take your time and find an amazing photo to celebrate camera day. It might be something from nature, a person who makes you happy or a photo of something that makes you go 'wow!'. Send your best photo in on the dojos and I will make a slideshow of your amazing photography to share with the school. 
E-safety for 5-7: Read the story and design an online safety super hero
E-safety for 8-10: Advice for grandpa about how the can use a tablet to do certain things. Along with a suspicious activity task
Science: Watery Science: Learn more than you might think about floating and sinking and other special properties of water!
Keep sending in photos of your amazing work, your teachers love to see what you have been up to!
Term 6 - Week 6 - Monday 6th July

New Conversations and Good Care Week. 


Family Challenge:

This week is Good Care Month and Conversation Day falls in the week as well. So in school we will be putting these two days together and showing our care for our loved ones. 

Contact someone you care for and start an interesting conversation with them. (If they could have a superpower what would it be and why?) 

Make a card, send an email, write a letter, facetime or send a message to people you love and find out something about them!

What can you find out about the people you love?


Art Hub:

Draw a cartoon mobile phone, this will get you started thinking about who you will speak to this week. Why not get grandma or grandpa to follow the instructions as well?!


Science; Body Science 

Conduct investigations to learn interesting facts about your body!


Computer Safety: Lesson 6 (Choose the most appropriate task)

-      5-7: Learn about sharing pictures safely.

-      8-10: Similar to 5-7 but a deeper exploration of safe and unsafe situations when sharing photos and videos online.

Term 6 - Week 7 - Monday 13th July

Morning All

The last week has arrived. What a crazy end we have had to our academic year. It has been amazing to see all the hard work your children have been doing at home; I know all the teachers have really missed the children, myself especially. Thanks again for sending in pictures of them competing their work and having fun.  


I’m not settling English and maths this week, just our fun learning challenges.



It is emoji day this coming Friday so I have chosen an art hub emoji challenge for our art work. In addition to this the art ninja made a great funny face flip book which you might want to have a go at. The art ninja needs some funny photos to be taken, have a look at the video to see what you need to do.



There’s a bit of overlap here with previous experiments, but with a twist.

Explore the forces that make rockets fly through the sky in this week’s science challenge.

Good luck grownups!!


Computing :

There is a lovely theme of kindness online this week with a focus on video chats.
