Welcome to Rowan Class!

 

Please find below home learning activities for English, maths and topic. The spellings for each week can be found on the spelling page. Remember to record your daily reading in your reading log and send in your photos and I will add them to the slideshow below.

Mrs Shaw

The Industrial Revolution by Matthew

The Industrial Revolution by Jack

Industrial Revolution by Maddy

An Industrial Revolution Timeline by Charlie

As a minimum please complete daily:

20 minutes reading and record in your reading record

Spelling practice - see spelling pages for the current week's spellings

30 minutes writing task

30 minutes of maths

30 minutes reading activity or comprehension

30 minutes of exercise and fresh air (where possible)

 

  • All work and learning activities can be completed in the maths or writing exercise books that have been sent home. If you wish to print work this can go into the wallet folder provided. Otherwise photographs of the work or scanned images can be sent back to school via the Rowans email address.
  • You may wish to print just colouring pages or puzzles. There is no need to print out the maths or comprehension - answers can be written in the exercise books.
  • Please remember to give all your work a date and title as this will help us to identify and mark any work on its return to school.
  • Where possible answers will be provided so that you or an adult can mark the work.
  • In the front of the writing exercise book is a reminder of presentation and editing expectations and a copy of the year 5 targets. The year 5 reading and writing targets can be highlighted and dated if you think you have achieved them in your home learning. The evidence of this will need to be either on your sheets or in your books. 
  • If you would like to have work that is more challenging then do look at the year 6 Hawthorns Home Learning work and feel free to look at year 4 Maples Home Learning pages as well.
  • Please look after your books and wallet folders and keep them in good condition. The work inside them need to meet the same expectations that we have in school as they will be used to continue work in school.

 

 

If you have any queries regarding the home learning please contact me via the following email: rowans@greathorwoodschool.org

I would love a daily email at the end of the day telling me how you are getting on and please send me lots of photos of what you are learning, particularly the practical activities in the front of your learning books. When you are ready I will send you the answers so that you can mark your work.

Year 5 Home Learning 15th -21st November 2019

RE learning this week - year 5 have created a timeline of the Bible. They worked in groups to order pictures of the stories and people in the Bible. They matched symbols to the pictures to represent God, Creation, Fall, People of God, Incarnation, Gospel, Salvation and the Kingdom of God.

We had a visitor from Buckingham University to give us instruction on Lego coding. Great fun!

We had a lovely morning with Conkers class (the Y1/2s). I was all about shape!

We love reading in Rowan Class!

Look at this lovely photo of the class to start the school year!

The children arranged themselves double quick!
