Home Learning Schedule

Welcome to the Summer Term

Whilst the summer term may look rather strange, we will endeavour to cover the objectives that would have been taught at school through our home learning activities - this is why it is so important that your child logs on daily. Below, outlines what topics we will be covering and also the BIG QUESTIONS that the children can aim to find the answer to:


ENGLISH -  Non-fiction and diary entries. We would be reading 'The Tin Forest' by Helen Ward and 'A child's Garden' by Michael Foreman. Other recommended reads are 'James and the Giant Peach' by Roald Dahl.


MATHS - Fractions, Measurement - Time and Geometry - shape will be explored this term.


SCIENCE - Green Plants.  Why are plants green?  Why are there different sorts of plants and flowers?  What is the function of the different parts of a plant?  Why are plants important for our world? Are some of the BIG QUESTIONS we will explore this term. The objectives we will cover include: Identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers.  Explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant.  Investigate the way in which water is transported within plants.  Explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.


GEOGRAPHY - Volcanoes. How do volcanoes affect the lives of people?  How are they created?  Where in the world are they?  Why?  Why do some countries not have volcanoes? These are the BIG questions that we will focus on. We will also produce a debate, the motion for this is: 'Should people be allowed to live near a volcano?' The objectives we will cover include: Describe how volcanoes are created.  Locate and name some of the world’s most famous volcanoes.  Describe how earthquakes are created.  Use an atlas by using the index to find places and use the correct geographical words to describe a place.


RE - Which rules should we follow? This fits perfectly with the current situation we are faced with. We will be linking this unit to the Bible story of Adam and Eve, Moses and the Ten Commandments. The BIG QUESTIONS include: How did Adam and Eve’s breaking of God’s rule lead to The Fall?  How did God want Moses to provide salvation for mankind with the Ten Commandments?  How do the Ten Commandments have an impact on every one’s lives – regardless of their religion?  Which new rules did Jesus share for humans to reach salvation? This unit allows for lots of reflection and consideration of our own lives, the value to bring to the world and how we have an impact on the world through the decisions and choices that we make.

May the force be with you!
