Duchess of Cambridge Kindness Assembly

Last week, the Duchess of Cambridge hosted an assembly all about 'Kindness'. Today, I would like you to watch and think about this within the first part of your learning. Think of it as we normally would have an assembly on a Monday morning! Click the image above to watch...

Maths Learning- 22.06.2020

## Lesson 1 - Right angles in shapes

Today, we will be beginning a new topic in our Maths learning during our 'Remote Learning' away from school. We will be looking at whether we can see and identify right angles in shapes. Click the image above to watch our 'learning video' for today. Then, have a think about our key questions below:

Key Questions

• What is a right angle? Can you find any right angles in your house?
• Which shapes do you know have right angles? Do you know the names of any other types of angles and the relative size of these?

After you have completed this, try to engage in our videos, activities and games below- this will help you in your understanding of right angles. Good luck Eagles!

English Learning (22.06.2020)

Last week, we finished writing our adventure story based on 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne. Many of you have sent these in and I will review them and upload them! However, they already look like 'stories' which I am really pleased with!

This week, we are going to look over another one of Anthony Browne's classic stories. This is also an adventure story.

Task 1- In your 'Remote Learning' books, complete a 'creative mindmap' for adventure stories, just like the one below as an example. Think about all of the adventure stories you know, what good adventure stories contain etc.

Click the image above related to writing. Andy is going to give you some tips for writing an adventure story for the future...

So what does 'adventure' mean to you then? You could consider adjectives such as exciting, unusual, scary, funny etc. Now, have a look at the covers below of 'The Gorilla'...

What sort of adventure do you think this will be? What reasons could you give a parent/ brother/ sister for thinking this?

Now for the first time, click one of the images above to listen to this story (you may already have the story yourself)...

Many adventure stories follow the same structure- do you remember what that is? Remember this...

Task 2- Can you write down what the problem/ dilemma is in this story? Do your parents agree with you? Is it that Hannah is lonely? Or that her Dad is work-obsessed? Or that her present isn’t quite what she wanted? Give reasons for your ideas...

For the last part of the session, there is a blank story mountain below. Can you fill in the different parts of the story mountain for this story? There are no write or wrong answers for this- it is down to the way you see this! Good luck Eagles and enjoy todays learning...

Science Learning (22.06.2020)

To develop understanding of gravity and what it does...

Click the image above to watch our opening video of todays session about gravity. What is gravity? What does gravity explain?

What is a force? Can you describe a force? Now, in your 'Remote Learning' books, write as many words as you can which link with the word force...

Have a watch of this video below...

and this one too...

Can you think about why they think the people in the plane and the space shuttle were able to float in the air and why we cannot do this in our classroom? Why if I drop a book, the book falls to the floor instead of floating around?

It was not until a man in 1666 started to understand this more fully that we could understand and explain 'gravity'. This man was called Isaac Newton. Before that, there had been many theories about what is now know as 'gravity'.  Newton showed that instead there was this invisible force called gravity acting on all objects, including us, all of the time...

For todays learning about 'gravity', there are some learning resources below to engage with. In addition, the link below should take you to a 'balloon challenge' which explores gravity further. In your 'Remote Learning' books, could you draw a diagram of how you completed this 'balloon challenge', explaining what you learnt from this...

I would love to see some videos of you trying this activity/ experiment too...
