Hello Class 9! I hope everybody had a lovely Easter weekend and ate lots of chocolate! I did some more baking this weekend so I will share the recipes after this message! 

Here are some more ideas for things you could do this week. Please email me any photos of things you do! My email is n.key@whitefield-inf.lancs.sch.uk

 

Science

When you are out on your daily walk go on a 'Plant Hunt'. What can you see growing? You could take some photos of what you find or draw some pictures of the plants you find when you get home. Can you name some of the things that you see growing?

 

Maths

Remember to use NumBots to practice your times tables. Here are some more ideas from White Rose Maths to do some fun maths at home. 

   

 

 

English

Answer the questions about this lovely photo! What do you think is happening? Remember there is no wrong answer, it can be whatever you think.

Who is the bear on the platform?

Why is he all alone at a train station?

Who wrote the tag around his neck?

What lies beneath his bright, red hat?

Why can’t the bear stay at the station?

In what way is this bear similar/different to a ‘normal’ bear?

What will happen to the bear next?

 

History

The doctors and nurses of the NHS are doing an amazing job to keep us safe! Do you remember learning about Florence Nightingale? She changed hospitals for the better to make them much safer for sick people. Research Florence Nightingale and write a profile all about her. 

Geography

At the moment we all have to stay home to keep everybody safe! If you could go anywhere in the world right now where would you go? Choose a place, research it and write all about it! 

Music

Mr Brown has uploaded lovely music lessons on his Youtube channel. The link is on the home learning page. 

Art 

Sketch or paint a picture of a flower you find on your plant hunt. You could even paint a flower in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe like we did in year 1! 

  

 

Outdoor Learning

Mr Howarth has shared lots of ideas for things you could do outside on the forest school page. 

Computing 

Use 2Code on Purple Mash to write some programs on the computer. 

P.E

Don't forget to do a daily P.E lesson with Joe Wicks. The link to his YouTube channel is on the home learning page.

This weekend I made some Easter shortbread biscuits. I will post the recipe here for you to try at home! 

 

 

Ingredients

  •  200g Unsalted Butter
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 300g Plain Flour

Method

1. Add the butter and sugar to a bowl and mix them together until they are light and fluffy.

2. Add in the flour and mix it well until you have a dough. 

3. Put flour on the kitchen worktop and use a rolling pin to roll out your shortbread. I rolled mine until it was about 1cm thick. 

4. Cut out shapes in your shortbread. I used Easter cookie cutters but you can use any shapes you like or you can even cut them out with a knife. 

5. Carefully put the shortbread on a baking tray. I smeared a little bit of butter on my tray so the biscuits didn't stick to it! 

6. Chill the biscuits in the fridge for 20 minutes. This will make sure the biscuits don't loose their shape when you bake them! 

7. Once chilled sprinkle the biscuits with a bit of caster sugar and bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 180° or until they are turning golden. 

8. If you wanted to you could decorate your biscuits with icing or chocolate! 

 

I also made some Rice Krispie treats! I put Malteasers and Malteaser Bunnies in mine but you could either leave them plain or put in another kind of chocolate! 

 

Ingredients

  • Milk chocolate (I used 200g of Dairy Milk) You could use whatever chocolate you like. 
  • Rice Krispies
  • Malteasers and Malteaser Bunnies
  • Sprinkles

Method

1. Break the chocolate up into pieces and put it into a bowl. Melt the chocolate in the microwave. (Make sure the bowl you are using is safe to go in the microwave.)

2. Once the chocolate is all melted add in the Rice Krispies, keep adding the Rice Krispies until you have used up all the melted chocolate to cover them. 

3. Add in the malteasers and mix well. 

4. Pour the mixture into a baking tin. (You could put the mixture into cake cases instead like we did with our Huff Puff cakes). Put some Malteaser Bunnies and sprinkles on the top and chill the mixture in the fridge until it has set. 

5. Slice up the Rice Krispie treats and enjoy!

Hello class 9! 

I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful sunny day! I have just taken Thornton for a walk in the sunshine and I have enjoyed reading my book in the garden today! I wanted to share a lovely book that Mrs Wilkinson found all about the coronavirus, this might be nice to read with an adult.

Hello Class 9! 

I hope everybody has had a lovely weekend. I spent some time in the garden this weekend and I also did some of my jigsaw puzzle. It is a Harry Potter one with 1000 pieces so I am finding it a bit tricky! Thornton has enjoyed his walks over the weekend and he likes looking out out the living room window to check everyone is staying at home and staying safe! I also watched the Queen on the TV on Sunday night as she spoke to everybody in the country.

Hello class 9, 
I hope you are all well and keeping busy! So far this week I have done some cleaning jobs around the house and done some work to make sure that we are ready to do some amazing science learning when we get back to school. I have been taking Thornton for walks once a day and I have been enjoying reading a few chapters of my book each day. Let me know if you have been doing any reading at home! I think I might carry on with a jigsaw that I have started this week.  I am going to put the latest activity from the Primary Science Trust below that you might like to try at home this week. Let me know if you try it and send me some photos by email.

Hello Class 9, 
I hope everybody has had a lovely weekend. I have spent the weekend doing lots of reading, taking Thornton for his daily walk and doing some chores around the house. Remember to carry on with your home learning packs this week, doing a little bit every day is fantastic. Remember to have a look at some of the websites and ideas I have shared on the home learning page as well. You could email me to let me know if you have tried any! Here are a few more ideas for things you could do this week, let me know if you do any of them!

Choose an animal and do some research about where it lives, what is eats and write a report about it. 

Maths

Ask an adult to test you on your times tables, or use NumBots to practice them. 

English

Choose a character from your favourite book and create a character profile. You could write about what they look like, what they like to do and what happens to them in the story. 

History

Create a timeline of your life. You could add captions to show the dates and some pictures. You could include things like when you were born, when you went to school, any family holidays or special dates. 

Geography

Choose one of the seven continents and do some research about it. You could find out things like what the weather is like, what animals live there or what famous buildings are there.

Art 

Draw a portrait of someone who lives in your house. This could be a sketch or you could add colour to your artwork. 

Outdoor Learning

Mr Howarth has shared lots of ideas for things you could do outside on the forest school page.

Hello Class 9 it’s Thornton here! I hope you are all well! I miss hearing stories about what you do every day at school and thought I would let you know what I’ve been doing at home. I have been enjoying going for a walk once a day along the canal by my house. I like to chase the ducks! I have also been enjoying being out in my garden enjoying the sunshine. I was a naughty boy yesterday and I stole a toilet roll and ran all around the house with it! Please email us and let us know what you have been doing! 
Love Thornton xx

Hello Class 9! 

I hope you are all well and safe at home. What a lovely sunny day it is today! Make sure you try to get outside in the garden today to enjoy the sunshine. Today you could go on a minibeast hunt in your garden and keep a tally chart of what you find or you could build a micro-habitat like we did in forest school! 

 

Thornton has been enjoying being at home with me and he is looking forward to his daily walk later! Check back on this page for more messages from us!
