'A love of learning for life in all its fullness'


Good morning everyone. 

I hope you're all well and raring to go again on this Tuesday morning.  If you're feeling full of energy, then go over to PE of the day, where you'll find Lucy waiting with a challenge video for each of the remaining days of the week.  Ruth has also started a new series of videos in Church corner on 'compassion' which I'm sure you'll enjoy and learn from.


Oak Academy Lessons

For those who prefer having a teacher to talk through the home learning slides each morning, the Oak Academy link is here. 

If you had difficulty navigating this site or loading the resources, just drop me an email or call the school for a chat.  I could arrange a video tutorial.

Select your year group, then 'Schedule'.   I suggest you pick the English and Maths lessons each day.  Feel free to have a look at the fourth lesson as well, although please leave it out if it proves a little too much as I usually add details of another lesson each day as well (little bit of something else).

You'll also notice there are buttons to click through to weekly assemblies and activity clubs.  These often feature some famous faces!



For those who'd like to keep going with bitesize.  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 topic is '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. 


Today's whirlwind of lesson is all about tornadoes.  There's quite a lot in here, so strap yourself in!!!  You will find out about how tornadoes are made, and discover more about the work of the scientists who study them. 


Click below to open up the powerpoint and read through the slides carefully.  Make sure you start by selecting the slideshow option so that all the links to videos work.  You may need to enable flash player to watch the video on how tornadoes are formed.  You can also watch a video (with a slightly annoying song) about how tornadoes are formed here on youtube.  Talk about what you see with an adult. 

There is a matching card challenge where you are asked to match the pictures to the descriptive writing.

There is an activity to make your own tornado in a bottle!  (I don't think it will damage your kitchen!!)

There is an activity to fill in labels about a tornado intercept vehicle.

There is an activity sheet to fill in with your own drawings from the video that was shown in the powerpoints.
