P6 Home Learning Tasks 12/6/20

Good morning P6, I hope you had some fun yesterday with your Health and Wellbeing task? My daughters couldn’t understand why I was being so nice to them and every time I said something nice they started laughing.

The Emperor Tamarins were a bit of a disappointment, I don’t think they liked the rain and went hiding!

Your task today are all focused on Africa, there are no formal literacy or maths tasks but you will need to listen and be creative.

Task 1 – Lets Explore Nigeria – a short video clip with some questions to answer.

Task 2 – Virtual Safari at Longleat Safari Park.  – Follow the safari around the park, take notes and create a safari board game.

Task 3 – Ndebele Art – Look at the images in the PowerPoint and design your own pattern on the worksheet.

Only three tasks but they will take a bit of time. Be as fun as you can with the game and play it with your family.

Have a great weekend, I am in St Fergus’ today and again at the start of next week, if you need help just send me a message.

P6 Home Learning tasks 5/6/20

Good morning P6, we have managed to complete another week of home learning, well done! I hope you enjoyed your pizzas if you managed to make them, if not have a go over the weekend, they really are quite tasty.

Today is the day for uploading your songs for the St Fergus’ musical extravaganza, get someone to record you and email it. You can send it to me and once I have all the entries from P6, I will get them to Mrs Cryans. Good singing!

Your task are uploaded as usual and here is the daily plan;

Task 1- School prayer – take a few minutes to remind yourself of the school prayer and what you can be thankful for.

Task 2 – Exercise with Joe – it is a beautiful morning, can you open the windows / go outside and join Joe for this workout? Remember you can stream his sessions at any time.

P6 Home Learning 4/6/20

Good morning, I hope everyone is in good spirits and keeping their vocal chords tuned for their entries to the school online show. Tomorrow is the last day for entries and a quick reminder that P6 can choose any song from the musical Mama Mia. If you are undecided about your song, don’t worry, I have attached a link to a website with music and lyrics (below).

Your tasks are posted in Google Classroom, here is a plan for the day;

Task 1 – Exercise with Joe.

Task 2 – Grammar – Complete the Jolly Grammar worksheet for your spelling group.

Task 3 – Go Noodle Brainbreak.

Task 4 – Maths – Fractions of an amount. – I have tried to explain and attached a chilli challenge worksheet.

Task 5 – Homemade Lunch Pizza– This is a basic recipe which I use myself to make a simple pizza base some lunchtimes (you might need to ask a family member to get some of the ingredients).

You will need;

  • equal quantities of flour (I use whatever I have in the cupboard, usually self raising) and plain yoghurt (greek yoghurt, creme fraiche, sour cream)
  • a teaspoon salt
  • a tablespoon oil

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl (a half cup of flour / yoghurt should be enough to make 4 saucer sized mini pizza) until you have a non-sticky dough. Use your hands to get all the ingredients mixed together. Leave to sit to 20 min for the dough to rest. Kneed the dough again for a few minutes and split in to 4. Roll out using a little flour and place on a baking tray.

For the base I use some tomato paste mixed with tomato sauce, spread a layer (not too much or it will get soggy) on to the base, grate any cheese on top and add anything else you fancy. Tuna and onion is tasty, so also is thinly sliced ham and sweetcorn. You can change the base using barbecue sauce which will give a lovely sweet version.

Bake your mini pizza for around 10-15 min at 180, keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn. Serve and enjoy.

My explanation makes this sound really long, but it genuinely only takes minutes (sometimes I only rest the dough for a few minutes).

Have a go and send me some pictures.

Task 6 – Africa – Animals and terrain.

From completing the task on Tuesday, you now know that Africa is a Continent made up of 54 separate countries. Look at the map which is attached and pay attention to the key.
There are deserts, savannah, rainforest and mountain terrains.
Can you research the differences between the terrains and the type of animals you would find there. Note down what you find, then choose 1 animal to focus on from each terrain.

Use a sheet of paper fold it in 4 and create a colourful information leaflet with key points in each section.

Remember to explain why the animals live in that terrain, what country it is and how the animals adapted? I have included some music to listen to get you in the spirit of Africa.

These tasks should keep you busy today, if you get stuck remember to keep in contact. I’m looking forward to the 2pm chat tomorrow on Teams.

Mrs Coyle

P6 Home Tasks 3/6/20

Good Morning, I hope you enjoyed your first task learning about the continent of Africa and enjoying some of it’s music. It is such a large land area to cover with so many countries and famous landmarks, we will have to pick and choose what we learn about. Hopefully you will find something to love. Remember to tell me if there is anything specific you would like to cover.

As usual your tasks are posted in Google Classroom, here is a framework to follow;

Task 1 – Go Noodle – Get Loose, a short shake and brain break to get you going in the morning.

Task 2- Writing – Write a short story using the image below to help your imagination. I have modelled a story for you to follow if you need some help.

Task 3– Take some time to create a Mindfulness toy. This craft idea is to create a mindfulness toy much like the ones used in school. You will need a clean jar, some glue, glitter and food colouring. Follow the instructions below and keep safe for times when you like to relax. Consider making one of these as a gift to a family member as an act of kindness. Think of things they may like to see in their glitter jar. Take a photo or describe what you have made.

Task 4Numeracy – Fractions (Equivalent Fractions) – Complete the worksheets using your fraction wall to help.

Task 5Health and Wellbeing – Use the template or create your own and record three things you are grateful for today. It can be small things like a smile, a hug from mum, but this task is to make you think about things you appreciate without realising. Remember to thank the person if it is a member of your family.

Task 6 – Dancing with Sam from RL Live at 3pm – follow the link below to take part in the dance class with Sam.

Have a great day, get outside for a breath of fresh air and enjoy listening to the birds.

P6 Home Learning 2/6/20

Good morning on another beautiful morning, I hope you all managed yesterdays tasks and are ready for today.  I am introducing a mini topic on Africa, where we will be investigating the people, animals, music and art.

Your tasks are posted in Google Classroom, here is a framework for the day;

Task 1 – Exercise – Choose Joe Wicks and complete his daily class or suggest a different class (you might have found someone different, I like the Les Mills dance class) for your friends.

Task 2 – Spelling activity – Spelling City

Use the link below, find your word list and try out the free  word search. Then create a game with your family, a loop card game where they can only use the card if they can correctly spell the word would work well.

Task 3 – Go Noodle Brainbreak

Task 4 – Maths – Equivalent Fractions – watch the two video clips to help revise what you understand about equivalent fractions. Use the fraction wall you made yesterday, or the one I’ve attached to complete the worksheet and finally exercise 3 & 4 from the booklet.

Task 5 – Mindfulness Task – Understanding  yourself. Sometimes we live with people (brothers and sisters) who we think we know really well, but we can often become complacent  and never really speak to them, today’s task should help with this.

Look at the list of questions and the template for the Fortune Teller. Choose some questions and fill the template with them, now go and get a family member to ask you the questions and you can ask them.

Task 6 – Africa Mini Topic.

First we need to investigate facts about Africa;
Where is Africa?
Is it a country?
How many people live there?
What size is it, in comparison to Scotland?
What is the weather like?
Can you create a colourful factfile or an A4 sized word document with the information you have found?
You have a map page to label and colour to add to the factfile which will help with information.
While you research and work on your factfile, click on the link and listen to the African music in the track.

Have a lovely day researching and enjoy listening to the music, its maybe not your taste but it is quite relaxing.

Remember if you are stuck with the maths, message me.
