Above is your final home learning grid this term. The grid has lots of fun activities on it. Have a go at completing what you can. Email pictures over for me to see. Miss Gainford has also included some activities for you to complete.

I have created a piece of word art below.  It includes some of my favourite things we have done throughout the school year. It is shaped like an elephant because I will not forget the fantastic memories we have had together! Have a go at creating your own word art picture! Find details on the grid.

This week’s home learning grid can be found below along with work from Miss Gainford. Complete as much as you can, however, please do not worry if you are finding it difficult to motivate your learner, we are going through challenging times and I am aware that it can be a struggle.  Don’t forget you can revisit learning grids from previous weeks too.

I will be sending out an email this week asking for everyone to check in and let me know how they are getting on.  I will also introduce the idea of ‘Teams’ meetings which I hope to start next week.

Online Learning P5 – 23rd March 2020

23rd March

Hello from Miss Gainford,

This week we are continuing with the Easter Story. After Jesus left the Last Supper he went to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane. See if you can find  The Lord’s Prayer and copy it using the correct letter joins and then try to memorise it. Prayers often include asking for something ( often to help others ), or guidance or to be forgiven and a promise. Using this list, write your own prayer.

We have been working on time and I would like you to draw up your own timetable.

Divide an A4 sheet into a table with four rows and eight columns .

Use this sheet to write the days of the week at the top [ starting in the second box along ] and divide your days into morning, afternoon and evening.

Include the following items in each day.

Exercise, an act of kindness, learning something new, communicating with friends or family, sharing, something creative, breaks and of course Monday to Friday, school work.

For art, I would like you to draw or paint the view from your window, it can be any time of the day. Look for detail that you might not have noticed before, decide the best media to use. You could even make it three dimensional by recycling items at home.
