Home Learning Week beginning 25 May 2020

Hi Biggies,

Here is this week’s learning.

The Teams meeting are getting quite busy, if you have not come along please do, you can sit quietly and listen for a while if you like to see what goes on.

Some of you have been busy in Minecraft. There is room for more. You can find out when the server is open by checking Teams. I am making some progress, Hazel and Heather taught be how to get my school uniform on and how to ride a cart. That took a lot of patience on their part.

Check the Banton Blogs for this weeks Family Challenge on Tuesday morning.

Lockdown Life

This is a project that should take you a few days. It would be great if everyone tried it.

Think of one thing that you have been doing over the last few weeks and make a ‘movie’ about it. You could use iMovie or Clips. aim for about 1 minute long. Try to think about how what you are talking about has affected or helped you.

There are many ways to do this, this is what I did or am going to do (I’ve not finished yet):

  1. Gather some images to tell my story,.
  2. Though about the order I want to tell them.
  3. Pulled the images into iMovie
  4. Add titles
  5. Add a voice over
  6. Add transitions
  7. Add audio (recorded and music)

After you finish export it at the smallest size (medium if you use iMovie) and upload it to your blog. If it is too big for you blog them upload it to Teams and I’ll make a smaller version for you.

I’ll put my example here or in Teams once it is finished.

NHS Topic

This NHS topic is from North Lanarkshire. You could work on this over the next few weeks. Try to organise the work you do. You could make a folder or put it on your e-Portfolio and make a NHS category. There are some Social Science tasks, Health & Wellbeing ones and some Expressive Arts.

Let me know in Teams or by posting to your e-portfolio about any progress you are making.

Literacy

Reading

DAILY TASKS

Read a book, Explore a word | ReadTheory |  Spelling

If you need a book you can go to Free eBook library | Oxford Owl I have emailed you and your parents the class password.

Share a Book

I’d still love to see this, not many folk did it (or shared it if they did) last week.

Choose a book you have read during lockdown and tell us about it. Think of an interesting way to do this. You could make a comic, record your voice, create a presentation, make a movie or even write about it.

Don’t just try and do this quickly, take your time and make a really good job of it. Start one day, look at what you have done the next and see if you can make it better.
