New Home Learning – 13.7.20

Hello Everybody!

This week in Home Learning (Summer 2, Week 7) we have the usual Maths and SPaG for you to complete. Our science topics all finished last week, but if you would like to find your own science to do, then these websites might help.

  1. Explorify – https://explorify.wellcome.ac.uk/
  2. Wow Science – https://wowscience.co.uk/
  3. CBeebies – https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/curations/science-activities

Each class has a ‘last letter’ from their class teacher. If you have any questions, problems with our resources or work to send us,  then please email us via our home learning email address below.

Free access to Nessy will end on July 20th. It’s been amazing to have this resource for free during this time and we would like to send Nessy a big thank you. Children who were using Nessy before this time will be re-added.

Over the summer holiday weeks we will be publishing four sets of home learning resources on four separate occasions. The first of these will be on Monday, 27th July.

This email account is monitored regularly and any emails will be replied to by one of our home learning team.

Attenboroughesque!

What more could you want to know about Rainforests? This PowerPoint has gone slightly global – to Penang, Malaysia, in fact, where my daughter lives and has experienced life in a rainforest. Feedback to follow from Emily Rose, once her teaching day is finished. Watch this canopy…

Home Learning – Science Week 6

Today we are publishing the last set of science for you to learn at home. Mostly, each class has a video to watch and an activity. If the activity isn’t on a separate sheet, then please pause the video when you get to the activity page within the video. There are also many activities set on Purplemash for you to do.

If you have any queries, or would like to send us any of your work, then please use our email address for home learning – homelearning.holmfirthjin@kirkleeseducation.uk

Thank you.

SPACE

My mum and dad had a small black and white television in the front room and I remember watching the very moment Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon! I’m so impressed by one of young presenters, whose performance is astronomical!

Thanks go to mum and dad for giving us permission to post this video.

Outer Space in School, and a Lovely Story from Home

Our creative plan at the moment is about ‘Outer Space.’ There has been some lovely art work created by children in school for this theme. Here are a few images of it. Well done everybody!

There has also been a lovely story sent in by EP. It’s called, ‘The Boat That Goes Nowhere’ and is a very lovely read indeed. Well done!

Here it is…enjoy 🙂

The Boat That Goes Nowhere

Free Reading!

My name is Leah and I am a librarian with Kirklees Libraries, who have been working hard throughout the lockdown period in order to extend our current e-book and audio e-book range and we would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about our new homework collection available to borrow for free:

Kirklees libraries have continued to increase the range and quality of their free e-book and e-audiobook service and now offer an extensive collection of homework topics to children and families.  These are free to borrow and open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Kirklees – all they need is a Kirklees library card.

Our free e-book service https://kirklees.overdrive.com/ can help to support children with reading at home and the wide range of topics available can help with children’s learning and ability to complete homework topics around history, science, the environment, coding, sport and much more.  We understand that not all families have access to wi-fi or Internet enabled devices, but for those who do then using Overdrive through the free, user-friendly Libby app can help to reduce the number of physical resources travelling between home and school.

We have created videos showing how to set-up an e-book account, plus the library team are available by phone, e-mail and social media to help.  For those who don’t have a library card, these can be set up online, which allows borrowers to start reading straightaway. You can view these and join the library at http://www.kirkleeslibraries.co.uk/resources/

 

If you need more information about this free e-book and e-audiobook service, please get in touch with frontline.services@kirklees.gov.uk .
