WEEKLY OVERVIEW 22nd June -26th June 2020

Tuesday 23rd June 2020

Hello everyone!

Today we look at money using reasoning and diagrams, How much can you find out about Giraffes? Can you remember what Jewish people put by their doors at home and can you understand why? All this and our usual wake up, shake up with GoNoodle, phonics and arithmetic practice. Buckle up and let's get started!

Can you do it standing up?

Prayer for the day

A time to sit, reflect and think to begin the day quiet, focused and the link below to open the prayer page, read slowly to let the words and ideas gently sink in... Explore the worship at home page or write a short poem or prayer of your own to send in. Light a candle for this time and let all the problems that cloud your mind go with a big breath out! Then blow out the candle! Now you are ready for the day.

Soumya's and Mrs Finn’s group

watch the 10:00 am video for phase 3 & 4

All other groups, including Mr Hazelby’s

watch the 10.30 am video for phase 5

If videos, don’t play, you can still go to phonics to practise there!


Write an animal fact file: All about giraffes!

Include information on where they live in the world-the areas or biomes they inhabit, the countries they can be seen in.

What they usually eat and how their bodies are suited to getting this food (why do they have such long necks and tongues?).

Finally, find out if they are endangered. What could people do to make sure they don’t become extinct? What pictures could you use to make your fact file look professional? Click the image above to watch a video about giraffes in the wild and watch this video below to see what life is like for them at the zoo. You can find more information in this fascinating fact file about giraffes by clicking this giraffe picture:

                                          MATH WARM UP!

Get on Times Tables Rock stars to practice your 2s, 3s, 4s, and 5s!

As a challenge: 6's, 7's and 8's

Remember: practice makes perfect so even if you know these, keep practising so you don't forget! You could also try Mathletics and choose an area of maths there: this week we're looking at money so see if there's some extra Mathletics practice on money. The four questions today can be copied onto paper by printing or by you copying them. There's also some further arithmetic practice on our weekly SATs paper below but you only need to do 2 or 3 questions a day from this. Let's get our maths head on...

MATH: More Money Problems!


Click the link then copy the questions you want to try into a notebook then solve! Use objects around the house to help you if you want to! Happy calculating!

RE: Judaism

Last week we looked at this important Jewish sacred object.

Do you remember what the name for it was? Here it is:




This week, click the image of the object to watch and find out why Jewish people put one by the door of each room in their house!

Before you watch check you know the meaning of these words:

threshold and fragmented.

Is there an object that you treasure as much as Jewish people treasure this? Explain what it is and design a poster to show why it is important to you or your family.

smileyThat's Tuesday sorted! Time to rest after a successful Learning day! Don't forget to e-mail your work to have it put up on the website under the home learning spiral on the main page! See you again for another day of activities tomorrow!laugh
