Coronavirus - INFORMATION FOR CHILDREN

The government have produced a children’s guide to coronavirus which aims to answer children’s questions about coronavirus, tell children how to stay safe and protect other people and how to help them make the best of their time at home.  This is available at the following link:

Class 5 Home Learning

I hope that everyone is staying safe and well and you're managing to enjoy the sunshine in the garden as well as doing your home learning. I would love to see pictures of what you have been getting up to! Please send anything you would like me to see to class5@highfield-primary.trafford.sch.uk . I will check the email regularly and with permission, I'll share what you have been up to so that you can see what everyone else is doing! If you have any urgent concerns, then please continue to use highfield.admin@trafford.gov.uk

 

The safety of the children and their loved ones is of upmost importance over the coming weeks.

We also feel that it is vital that children continue to develop their learning where possible.

The timetable below offers a suggestion of the home learning activities that we recommend for the next week while school is closed. This timetable includes daily English and maths and foundation subject activities related to Year 3. 

We will continue to update this page with activities should the school remain closed for a longer period.

If you would like even more activities, click here for extra links to further learning opportunities!

Blue text = links to websites and documents

None of the following activities require you to print anything. As long as you can see the worksheets then the children can complete the work in the exercise books that have been provided.

 

You are sensational Class 5!! You have read so many books. Let's try and be the first to complete our Readerpillar!!

Thank you for the wonderful maps of the local area. It was great to see how creative the children have been. This half term will be Science based homework.

Children can choose from the following options:

  • Make a 3D model of a plant and label the parts
  • Make a poster all about what a plant needs to grow.

           Hand in date: Week beginning 23rd March.

         English    

 

 

This half term, our unit will be based on a science fiction text called ‘Alien Landing’. The children will be learning the text off by heart and then adapting it to make their own version. Our grammar focuses will be:

  • inverted commas
  • sentence types
  • paragraphs

                                                                                                      

We will also continue to develop comprehension, spelling and handwriting skills.


 

 

 

Please continue to read with your child at home and write it in their reading records. The children will still have the opportunity to press their character on the reading tracker and earn a badge. 



       Handwriting

The children will be working on their cursive handwriting through daily handwriting lessons.

If you would like further information about how we teach letter joins please look at the following website:
www.teachhandwriting.co.uk 


Mathematics

We will be moving on to our topic of length and perimeter. The children will be:

  • Measuring length
  • Look at equivalent lengths – mm/cm cm/m
  • Compare different lengths
  • Add and subtract lengths
  • Measure perimeter
  • Calculate perimeter

                                             

It is REALLY important to practise times tables & learn them off -by-heart. We will be focusing on the 6 and 8 times table this term.

 

There are some great videos on Youtube and websites with games that can help the children to learn their times tables. Sometimes it is easier for children to remember them in a song as they can be quite catchy.     

  

In a recent parent and pupil questionnaire both parents and pupils expressed an overall preference for the homework book format for homework. However, most responses noted that online activities were enjoyable and provided an alternative learning style. Please find below a list of suggested links for your child to use:

PSHE

Our PSHE unit is all about relationships with others. This includes: discussing types of relationships, how our behaviours can change from one relationship to another; and maintaining appropriate boundaries.

 

Well-being

During our Well-being time, we’ll be thinking about how to manage and express our feeling and emotions and why it is important. This links with us always trying to use a growth mindset when completing our work.

 

RE

In our ‘Why are festivals important to religious communities’ unit, we will be looking at:

Why Muslims celebrate Ramadan and

The Easter story.

Art/DT

To tie in with our Ancient Egypt theme, we will make and decorate our own papier mache canopic jars. But don’t worry; we won’t be filling them with human organs like the gruesome Egyptians did!

Computing

In computing we will continue to make our own sporting theme tunes using the app Garage Band. Using editing skills such as looping, we are creating melodies and beats that represent a range of sports, some of which will be used for our next intra school tournament.

 

 

PE 

Our inside topic this half term will be dance/gymnastics.

Outside, we will be learning how to play tag rugby and the rules needed to play the game.

                                                                               


Please ensure that your child's school uniform, including their PE kit is labelled with their name, to avoid items getting lost. Thank you in advance for your support.

Please ensure that you check our web page and the school Twitter page on a regular basis, for updates and photographs.
