Good morning - it's Tuesday.
Hope you're all happy and raring to go. I'd like to put you all in a happy mood today by telling you a short joke. It's about a broken pencil... but I won't tell it because there's no point. (I can hear the groans coming down the M6).
Please follow Tuesday's lessons for Maths and English only through the TV channel AND by visiting the links for the day's lessons. If you are worried that you are unable to follow BBC Bitesize because you don't have a TV licence, please email me and I will provide a tutorial on using the government's Oak Academy home learning website.
The week's lessons, which have been split into days and age ranges, can be seen here

Daily lessons are here! Follow the link to open up the full menu of age-appropriate daily lessons. Each lesson is backed by a range of fun videos, games and activities. You can continue to use your home learning exercise books and maths books to write in. The links below take you straight to your year group for today.
Little bit of something else - Geography
Our new topic is called 'Extreme Earth'. You will learn about the destructive powers of nature, from volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and tornadoes and how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment. You already have some background in this, through having looked at the 'rocks' topic with Ms Lowthian earlier this year. If you've refreshed your browser since you were last on twinkl you may need to log in. User name: email@example.com and the password is Smile01
You can click here to download the file then go to lesson 1 materials ('Under our Feet').
Start by opening up the powerpoint and read through the slides carefully. Talk about them with an adult.
The resources linked to slide 8 are back in the file, but unless you can make some coloured dough, you'll have to use your imagination!
To open the video link in slide 9, make sure you're in full slide show mode. If you have problems, the link is here.
For the older children (but I think you'd all enjoy watching) there's a very good youtube video here to watch about the structure of the earth which includes information about tectonic plates. Hopefully you'll all remember some of the lessons that Ethan has given us about tectonic plates and continental drift - some of you might like to make your own short video presentation about the subject. If you do, please send it over to me, and I'll put it up on the hall of fame. I know how fascinated you are by this subject!
