Nursery Home Learning wkbg 18.5.20

Julian has been continuing to work hard over the last couple of weeks. Your pencil control is amazing and I love the bridge you made. Julian has also found a new love of football and riding his scooter – brilliant!

Amie has had a very busy couple of weeks – if you keep on cooking like this Amie, you’ll soon be on Master Chef! I love the time and care you have taken over your name and making 2D shapes , and your bridge for the Gingerbread to cross over is amazing –  keep up the good work!

*Year One* Home Learning – W/B 18th May 2020

Another week of fantastic learning from Year One. I am so proud of all you have achieved and really enjoy reading your emails and looking at your photos.

George has had another busy week. He has been working on his RE, Design Technology, geography, reading comprehension and continuing his fantastic building of Lego. I loved his prayer and his fantastic story below! Please have a read. Well done George!

Phoebe has had another busy week and has worked really hard on the tricky concept of time. Phoebe sped through the work after it ‘clicked’ and is looking forward to receiving her own clock! Phoebe has also been working hard on her writing and has written some promises that she is going to try and keep after reading the story of Jesus promising his disciples that the Holy Spirit would come to them.

We also send huge birthday wishes to Phoebe who celebrated her birthday earlier in the week! Hope you had a wonderful day!
Well done Phoebe!

It was lovely to receive an email from Tai this week showing how well he has been getting on with the concept of time. He enjoyed watching the videos and has flown through his maths work. He also wrote me a letter as his writing task this week and it is lovely to see how well he is getting on with his handwriting. In his letter he said he is missing his friends at school and asked if I was missing them too. I really am missing you all Tai and hope to see you all soon! In his letter he also explains that he is making an Optimus Prime suit that transforms into a car! Once again, showing his fantastic imagination and creativity. Keep it up Tai!

Veronica sent in more of her maths work. She continues to work hard in maths and has answered some quite tricky word problems for measurement using her own strategies for addition, including column addition. She has also had a go at reading some scales for measuring volume and mass, despite the computer moving all the boxes around! Well done Veronica!

Another week of hard work for Grace. She has focused particularly on maths and has challenged herself to complete some of the more tricky elements of time such as word problems and working out hours less, hours more and reading the time to o’clock and half past. Having learnt about the promise Jesus made and Pentecost in RE, Grace wrote an invitation for a Pentecost party! I’d love to join especially as there promises to be singing and dancing! I also loved seeing Grace’s fruity art! She made a fantastic owl using many different fruits. Fantastic! Well done!


*Year 6 – Home Learning – Week 7*

How are we on our 7th week of home learning? It is lovely to still be receiving so many fab emails showcasing brilliant work! Well done Year 6!

Ethan has been busy graffiti-ing his garden fence panels for this week’s art challenge:

Hannah has been busy working her way through the tasks. I love her explanation of her chosen image for Mary our Mother:

Niamh has also been a busy bee researching the chronology of major wars and organising them into a timeline:

Week Seven of Home Learning for Year Four

Niamh has been working hard over the last few weeks. She has sent us some pieces of work that she is proud of. I particularly like the triptych that Niamh has drawn. I think her drawing of the Risen Christ and the disciples on the road to Emmaus is excellent. The Kennings poem that she has written about one member of staff also made me smile. Can you guess who Niamh is describing?


Also, Patrick has written a colourful Kennings poem. Are you able to work out which member of staff is being described?

Patrick has tried really hard to use his neatest handwriting when writing words containing the joins that he has practised. Well done, Patrick!

Ffion has been busy at work and at play. Not only did she manage to complete all of the home learning tasks set but she has also been on lots of bike rides and has been playing in the paddling pool. Can you guess which member of staff Ffion’s Kennings poem is about?

Well done and happy half-term, Year 4!

It was so lovely to speak to the Year 2s this week and thank you for the work you have sent me!

Here are JJ’s efforts…

and Bartosz’s…

Joseph has been very creative…

And Fabian has been working hard too!

I am hoping to speak to you via Zoom again this week too! More details coming soon! 🙂

Year 3’s Home Learning – Week 6!

A big well done to Jacob, Grace, Phoebe, Eujhan and Conor for sending in photos of their work this week.

Jacob and Grace have been working hard on their knowledge of fractions in maths. Phoebe has been working on her fractions, her knowledge of magnets and also produced some lovely writing about Ancient Egypt. Eujhan has been working on his times tables, his comprehension and has produced some wonderful geography work on North America. Conor has been busy creating a wonderful poster on magnets in science, as well as writing a story for English and also leading a prayer service for his family.

Thank you for the update Year 3! It was also lovely to catch up with almost all of you last week on Zoom! I miss you all so much and it was lovely to see your happy faces!

Home Learning – Year One – W/B 11th May

Some wonderful pictures and descriptions from Abbie started the week. Abbie has worked really hard with her maths and measured lengths and weights of items around the house. In science, Abbie designed and constructed a comfortable and useable home for hedgehogs, where they can stay safe and have access to food and water. Abbie chose to complete her brochure on Penzance and used some beautiful photographs to show the great things that can be enjoyed there. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Abbie’s description of Mr Twit’s garden, have a read of it below, I am sure you’ll agree that it is a fantastic piece of writing from a child in Year One! Abbie always plans her writing like we do at school and it shows! Well done Abbie, a great start!

George has been working hard and had a very busy week. He flew through his maths showing his little brother how to measure volume accurately and moved on to working hard on his reading comprehension. George decided to follow the journey of a potato right from planting the potatoes through to when we buy them at the shops. George once again blew me away with his responses n his RE lessons this week and chose a very reflective Bible story about the disciples asking Jesus how to pray and have more faith. I think it was a lovely choice, and maybe we could all say the Our Father for our All Souls’ family. I particularly liked George’s rocket that he made out of Lego, have a look below!

Another great start for Grace this week. She has flown through her maths work and is continuing to work hard on her reading comprehension. This week the children were tasked with writing a creative story using an opening sentence given to them. Grace has made a good start and I can’t wait to read the finished piece. Grace has also made her own healthy food plate. As part of our D&T focus we are looking more closely at the things we eat and making sure we are having a balanced diet. Grace has made her plate and chosen foods that she enjoys from each of the food groups. Well done!

It was lovely to receive an email from Jamie this week. He has been trying hard with his home learning and shared a few of these activities. I enjoyed seeing his Hedgehog home that he has designed and made. He chose different materials that would protect the hedgehog from the wind to keep them safe. Jamie also followed a recipe to make a chicken and chorizo salad, it looks very tasty! A budding chef in our midst. Well done Jamie – Keep it up!

A great update from Phoebe today. She started the week working hard on her phonics, spelling, English, D&T and RE! What a busy start to the week! Phoebe also took a break from her work and went with her mummy for a long walk. It is lovely to hear that the children are getting out and about and having this time away from directed learning to let go and have conversations with those they love. Well done Phoebe!

It was wonderful to get and email from Sophie, updating me on all the wonderful things she has been up to whilst learning at home. A few of the tasks she has completed are below. I particularly enjoyed reading Sophie’s Easter prayer and seeing her lovely steps of plant growth. Sophie’s artistic skills were showcased in the lovely detailed drawings of the different stages of a plant’s life cycle. Sophie has also been working hard on her reading comprehension and remembering to answer in full sentences. What I was very happily shocked and very proud of how amazing her cursive writing has become! She has clearly worked very hard and practises regularly. Well done Sophie!

I have been blown away by the stories that I have received over the week. This week the children were tasked with writing a creative story. They were given the 2 characters, main setting and the opening sentence and they then had to plan the story and write a beginning, middle and end. It is something we have done at school but was a big ask for the children and they have definitely risen to the challenge. Please take a few moments to have a read of them and I think you will agree they are fantastic pieces of writing for children that are in Year One. From their use of adjectives to their cursive writing, they have made be really proud. Well done! I have attached their stories below with some of the other tasks they have been completing this week.

*Year 6 – Home Learning – Week 6*

It’s a strange one for us this week as we should have been showing off all of our hard work by completing our SATs. So our home learning has taken a light twist on the usual SATs to celebrate what would have been and there is also less of it so that children can still enjoy a chill day Friday as they would have had if we were in school.

Here’s what they’re up to this week:

 

Molly has been busy trying out some of our Science experiments at home:

Niamh clearly wasn’t happy with my score in the SPaG test (I personally think it was a little harsh!). She also got an interesting score of 70.61628 on her Reading test!

Rebecca has been a Scientist testing which sauce cleans coins the best:

Hannah has also had a go at the same experiment although chose some different sauces:

Here is some more of her work (check out that shocking spelling score!):

 

Liam LJ has been writing about the fruits of the Holy Spirit he believes are ripe within those around him:

He also wrote and read aloud this beautiful Corona Virus poem:

Here are Hannah and Rebecca’s war projects:

Frank has been busy trying out a Science experiment, creating his own image of Heaven and baking (looks delicious!):

I loved reading Isla’s autobiography:

Here is a selection of Ethan’s work:

And some more updates from William:

Sixth Week of Home Learning for Year Four

The Year 4 children have continued to impress us with all of their wonderful work.

During the month of May, we pay homage to Mary, our Blessed Mother. Patrick wrote a thoughtful prayer to Mary asking for her help during this difficult time. He decorated it beautifully with a set of rosary beads.

Roman has also chosen to focus his prayer on asking Mary to help those who are suffering from Coronavirus and the doctors and nurses who are caring for them. I particularly like the lovely rainbow that he has drawn to illustrate his prayer.

Lily-Rose has also shared her lovely prayer to Mary. She prays that this pandemic will end soon. We all share your thoughts, Lily. Well done!

Tommy has worked very hard over the last few weeks. For science, he completed a food diary, and, in maths, he converted analogue and digital clock times and units of length and mass. Also, Tommy completed comprehension questions and he practised using apostrophes for single and plural possession. I particularly like the triptych that he has created in R.E. He considered how the disciples on the road to Emmaus felt before and after encountering the Risen Christ and he wrote a thoughtful prayer to Mary. Keep up the great work, Tommy!

Eva has been ploughing through her maths and English work this week. In maths, she has constructed a bar chart and a pictogram before accurately interpreting these. In English, Eva has been identifying main and subordinate clauses in complex sentences, practising writing the words that she needs to learn to spell and certain letter joins in handwriting. Also, she has written a film review. If you haven’t already watched the film ‘Penelope’, Eva recommends that you do. For art, she used felt squares to create a space invader wearing a witch’s hat. Excellent work, Eva!

Oliver has been extremely busy over the last couple of weeks. He enjoyed camping out in his garden with his brother, Frank. They watched films, played games and toasted marshmallows on a fire. It sounds and looks like you had great fun. Oliver played ‘Happy Birthday’ to his sister, Julia, on his guitar. Also, he has answered comprehension questions, practised writing his letter joins and the words that he needs to spell, as well as practising using apostrophes for plural possession. Oliver completed a review on the film ‘Boss Baby’. He recommends that you watch it, if you haven’t already seen it, as he thinks it is funny. In R.E, he has written a lovely prayer to Mary and created a triptych. Super work, Oliver! Keep up the great effort!

Ffion has thoroughly enjoyed completing her art work this week. Using Paint software, she created a picture of Maleficent followed by a picture of her family. Both pictures are fantastic and very effective, Ffion! For maths, she completed a traffic survey before presenting the information gathered using a bar chart. Well done, Ffion!

James Clancy has been working extremely hard. He completed an additional R.E task as he researched the story of Our Lady of Fatima for her feast day on 13th May before drawing a lovely picture of her. Well done, James! Also, he created an excellent triptych of the risen Christ and the disciples on the road to Emmaus before carefully considering how the disciples felt before and after encountering the risen Christ. In art, he used Paint software to create his own PAC-MAN image. For maths, he completed a traffic survey as well as statistical work, and, for English, he answered comprehension questions and wrote a film review for ‘Jurassic World’. He is continuing to train in Taekwondo via Zoom, and is enjoying playing football during his break times. James is proving to be a tremendous help around the house,  assisting with the cooking and washing. We are really impressed with you, James!

Olivier worked hard to complete all of the tasks set in four days so that he could have Friday off. Like Ffion, he had great fun completing his art work and the traffic survey. Last weekend, Olivier went on a twenty mile bike ride! He must have been exhausted when he finally made it home!

Alicja has had another productive week of Home Learning. She has completed all of the maths and English tasks set as well as writing a lovely prayer to Mary. Well done, Alicja!
