Year 4’s Artistic talents

Hi everyone!

Year 4 have been working very hard with their home learning. This week they have had two creative tasks. For their Art task, they had to look at the artwork of Sonia Boyce and create their own memory postcard inspired by her work. For their Music task, they had to plan and design their own instrument before making it with items from around their house. Take a look at their fantastic work below! (All these submissions have been submitted on Teams. I will update and add other images as I receive them)

Stay safe and take care,

Year 4 Art Work

Hi everyone!

As one of their home learning challenges this week, I asked Year 4 to look at some of the Pop Art created by Roy Lichtenstein and use this to inspire their own masterpieces. Below are some of the amazing pieces of Art that Year 4 have created. (All these pieces have been submitted on Microsoft Teams, any other submissions will be added as I receive them.)

The children have considered the Pop Art style, colours and techniques and produced some brilliant images. Take a look!

 

Hope you are all staying safe, take care

Year 6 IXL Update

Hi everyone,
So year 6 are now back in school, 29 of them have opted to return, we have recapped on early Math skills, the four operations, and extended into year 7 maths by introducing Pythagoras, aimed at getting them ready for high school.
Students are still tackling the IXL skills and have spent 20 hours 10 min of their own time logging on this week. This is in addition to the work done in school and those at home with the home learning packs
Well done to those involved.
Here is the latest progress and achievements made in the last 7 days.
Samuel well done, an amazing 15 hours and 8 mins spent independently on IXL in a week, as well as attending school everyday. This shows an excellent attitude to learning. Having already completed the 105 English skills you only another 25 Math skills to complete to have mastered all 275 skills. Will you be the first student this year to finish?
Or, will Lilly-Mae who has only 25 English skills to complete having already completed the 275 Math skills!
The race is on!!

Mrs B’s Book Club: Owl Babies – Martin Waddell

Hi again everybody,

Hope you are all well!

Here is today’s story, ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. I have suggested some activities below that link to the story.

Activity 1

Can you use the word mat pictured below to write some simple sentences about the story. Maybe you could describe their nest? Remember, you are using a word mat which is a different skill to using phonics. Search for the word you are looking for and include it in your sentence.

Screenshot 2020-06-02 at 20.24.52

Activity 2

Can you find the totals to the owl number sentences? If you want a further challenge, can you record the number sentences to go with them?

Screenshot 2020-06-02 at 20.23.51

Activity 3

Using things you can find out and about from outdoors (sticks, twigs and leaves), can you build your own Owl Babies nest? What will you need to keep the babies warm and cosy?

Hope you have fun doing these activities!

Love Mrs Burgess

Mrs B’s Book Club – We’re Going on a Bear Hunt – Michael Rosen

Hola (feeling like I’m in Spain this week!),

Hope you are all great and making the most of this beautiful weather. This weather is my absolute favourite, it makes me super happy.

Today we go back to our class namesake Michael Rosen for his best known story – ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. I know lots of you (old and young!) love this story and love joining in with it, so watch the video and join in with me, it may take you back to the good old days in Reception!

Below are activities for this story, please have a go at them and send over your efforts to peelhall.primaryschool@salford.gov.uk

Activity 1

Make a Bear Hunt map and label it! Can you remember the order of the story and where the family visited? Then use your map to retell the story to someone in your family! Don’t forget to go backwards when the bear starts to chase you!

Activity 2

Using our tricky words ‘go‘ ‘to‘ and ‘the‘ can you write some instructions for the family on their bear hunt?

Have fun with the activities,

Mrs Burgess
