Welcome to Robins home learning page!

A place to find learning, to keep your mind working. 

 

Below are some links and ideas for you and your child to access learning at home during the school closure. These will be updated regularly.

Please look at the targets from the recent Parents' evening meetings and work on these at home with your child.

Mr Shuttleworth

**UPDATED** 31/5/20

Hi all,

I hope everyone has had a restful half term and has managed to stay safe and well. Thank you for all the home learning I was sent for the previous week. It really is lovely to see. I am still looking to see some pictures of children reading books or enjoying stories so it would be marvellous if could have some of these this week.

The blog has been updated and I have tried to include a photo from anyone who sent me some home learning.

Education City continues to be a success with many of you accessing the games/activities set. Thank you for this. As previously suggested, some activities are targeted for Year 1 and some for Year 2. If something is too easy or too hard, do not hesitate to move them on to something else if you feel it is unachievable.

This week the update has been put on one document for you. I hope you will find this easy to follow.

Stay safe,

Mr Shuttleworth

Hi all,

I hope everyone has had as good a week as possible and you are all managing to stay safe. Again it has been a pleasure to see all the lovely work going on at home. Thank you to everyone who has sent me some this week. You will see I have put pictures on the blog from everyone I received something from. 

This week it has been fantastic to see a huge increase in the number of children accessing Education City. Any feedback on this would be welcome.

Hi all,

I hope everyone is staying safe and well. A huge thank you for all the home learning I have received over the last week. There has been more than the previous week so keep up the good work! I have started a blog with pictures of work I have received and intend on putting some on every week for children to look at and aspire to get their work on the blog. I hope this encourages your children to complete as much home learning as possible.

For this weeks English, I would likel children to write a diary of what they are doing each day.

Be sure to include thoughts, feelings and worries and remember the punctuation!! A picture to accompany their writing might be useful too.

 

For something creative, we would be creating sculptures in Art, so if you could make a Blackpool Tower sculpture using any materials and send me a picture, that would be fantastic!

Talking to children about the virus:

Save the Children have 7 tips for talking to your child about coronavirus - https://www.savethechildren.org.uk/how-you-can-help/emergencies/coronavirus-uk-outbreak-facts#coronavirus

 

English activities

  • Write a story, poem or play
  • Make puppets and put on a play
  • Play a board game, dig out old favourites and hold championship tournaments! You could even design a new one for a target audience!
  • Paint a picture and label it/write about it / create a poem
  • Make an Easter Egg Hunt with clues in your garden
  • Research 'project'/poster on a topic that's been covered in school recently, e.g. Our local area 'Blackpool'. This could be in the form of a poster, leaflet, booklet or a PowerPoint presentation etc.
  • Have a good declutter/sort-out of your toys! Which toys or books do you no longer use? Write a review of your favourite with a target audience!
  • Bake! Bake your favourite recipe and write up the recipe so as to create a class book of favourite recipes when you return to school.
  • Junk modelling – why not upcycle some waste materials in order to make something new

Maths activities

  • Playing games, especially card games, dice games, dominoes or games involving counting in any form, such as Yahtzee, Monopoly, Ludo, Snakes and Ladders.
  • In addition, games that support memory, such as memory matching games
  • Practice making and recalling pairs of numbers that make a given total, such as all the pairs of numbers that make 100. 20, 10, 8, 5 etc.
  • Practice the 2, 5 and 10 times tables

Science activities 

  • Take a walk in nature. Make a collection of things you find. Once home, display them and see if you can identify them. Nature Detectives has some great ‘spotter sheets’ which might help.
  •  Plant some vegetables to grow at home. How can you keep them healthy? Once grown, can you use them in your cooking? Easy ones to grow for younger children are lettuce varieties, cress, radish or basil and mint herbs.
  •  Have a family sunflower competition. Who can keep their plan healthy and grow the tallest sunflower? Keep a diary of how much it grows each day. Other activities you could do with your child
  • Make a marble run. How long can you keep the marble moving for?
  •  Take a ‘Science Selfie’. Take a photograph of themselves with something science related in the image. Print off the photograph and complete the caption ‘This is science because…’ Make a collection of ‘Science Selfies’ to show how science is all around us.
  •  With an adult for guidance, experiment with cooking and food preparation. Make cakes and discuss what they notice at each stage of the recipe. Try this experiment to see how oven temperature affects cake mix: Make some cake mixture and place in 15 separate muffin cases. Put all the muffins in the oven then after every minute remove one from the oven until all 15 have been removed. Which is the best cake? Why? What do you notice? Mix up the cake order and see if you can put them back in the correct order.
  • Try making some healthier snacks. Try super-seed energy balls, homemade granola, hummus with veg sticks. Explore online for some great ideas.
  • Make a den, inside or out. Explain what materials you used and why your den is good?
  • Research a famous scientist. What did they discover? How is their idea used today?
