Half-term activities!

 

If you are wanting something to keep you busy over half term, look no further... I have plenty of ideas here for you to try!

-If you have grandparents you are missing, you could write letters. In fact, this could apply to anyone you are missing!

-Make a to do list jar. Write on a piece of paper all the things you would like to do when we get back to normal. Then you can pick something out of the jar and actually do it when that day comes!

-Try and do the daily mile each day - look it up here if you're not sure what it is: https://thedailymile.co.uk/ #DailyMileAtHome 

 

You could enter the RSPB competition.

 

They want you to create a piece of art inspired by nature – let your imagination run WILD! There are 2 categories to choose from this year – REAL LIFE – entries using the more traditional approach of paints, pastels, acrylics, pens or pencil. And they have a new GO WILD category – for those of you who want to ‘go wild’ in every sense of the word! To enter this category, experiment with textiles, sculpture, recycled and eco-friendly materials, collages – anything goes! Click the link for more details https://www.rspb.org.uk/fun-and-learning/for-kids/rspb-kids-competitions/wild-art/?channel=paidsearch&gclid=CjwKCAjw8J32BRBCEiwApQEKgW9iWBdHB7AjOLPySlmqFPaAoQ99AMliSCcmBFayJUNzvgeCcAXziRoCgNEQAvD_BwE

 

-Create a time capsule for your family. This is such a nice idea to try! Create a family time capsule and include photos, letters, lists of your favourite things, small items, and any other things that you would like to rediscover after a few years. Place all of them in a box, seal it, and write on it the date when you’ll be allowed to open it.

 

-Family talent show! Each member of the family showcases their talent and you vote for the best performer!

-Fancy doing some cooking, create a healthy wrap pizza, brownie in a mug, I would love to see some pictures.

Bore da!

 

This week is a special one. It is VE Day at the end of the week and it is usually when the country comes to celebrate victory during WW2. This year is a little different. We are in lockdown! Why not decorate your windows with some Union Jack flags and prepare for a tea party on Friday?

 

I have included one task of writing a letter to a friend at the end of VE Day. This will encourage you to use your creative writing skills. Use Microsoft Word to do this and you can do a little bit each day.

Literacy

This week we are learning to acknowledge our 'Lockdown Heroes' via a video diary.

 

Using our Teams/Flipgrid, log on and record a video about who your hero is at the moment. I have already received a few and these are amazing. 

 

Remember to speak clearly about who your hero is and what makes them so special. Use our Teams platform to speak to the class about their heroes. Maybe your hero is a family member, nurse, doctor, delivery person, local shop assistant or someone else. 

 

Got some extra time? Try this : 

 

Who is your Hero? Is it someone in the media? Is it a sports star? Someone who changed history, for example Martin Luther King Jr? Is it a teacher? Is it someone that lives on your street or lives in your house?

Write a leaflet or create a Powerpoint using Hwb Office 365 about what is needed to become a hero.

 

Possible sub headings

* Introduction – what makes someone a hero?

* Exercises you must be able to complete

* The right food to eat to become a hero

Topic - Heroes

This week we are learning to get creative. 

 

Watch the video on: https://hwb.gov.wales/HwbHeroes

 

I thought it would be a lovely idea to be part of this! To help spread to message and become Hwb Heroes.

 

I would like you to become the dance teacher create a dance or animation to your favourite song. Write down the moves and record yourself. As a class we can share them and hopefully learn each other.

 

There is a Flipgrid area for this. Access Teams to gain access. I have set this as an 'assignment' in Teams.

 

Got some extra time? Try this :

 

Riley the Rhino needs a super hero outfit. We would like you to design a logo. The logo needs to be labelled to help other understand what it represents. 

 

You could draw this and send a photo using our SeeSaw App / Microsoft Teams.

This week we are learning to:

 

Have a go at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQ9q4U2P3ig&feature=youtu.be

 

Then I would like you to have a go at creating your own pattern! Send a video clip I would love to have a go!

 

I love this video - Banana Banana Meatball! (You will know what I mean if you watch it!)

Class Message: 

 

Bore da pawb! Week 2 of home learning and lots of you have jumped into our Teams section. Well done! We will be making this our virtual classroom for the term and it is a truly amazing way for Y5/6 to share ideas and assignments. Flipgrid is already integrated and we can use this for our oracy tasks. This has been so easy to use this year and I know that you can continue to record your awesome videos. 

 

My recommended website this week is www.oxfordowl.co.uk. This site has hundreds of amazing books that you can begin to read after signing up. It is free to use and if you ever want to have more fiction and non-fiction books to read, this is your place! If the weather turns a bit horrible this week, find a quiet place and get your head into an e-book. 

 

Stay safe! Record your videos! Send in your learning via Teams (files section).

 

Have fun! Mr. D

 

* STAR OF THE WEEK FOR 24th APRIL *
