Welcome to Amber class home learning page!
Sending you all well wishes!
Welcome to the Amber class home learning page:
Our home learning is intended to develop our pupils' excitement and passion for their learning and to help parents support their children at home.
During the week daily activities will be added to:
  • Ensure that parents are clear about what their child is expected to do;
  • Ensure consistency of approach throughout the school during the closure;
  • To use home learning as a tool to help to continue to raise standards of attainment;
  • Improve the quality of the learning experience offered to pupils and to extend it beyond the classroom environment;
  • Provide opportunities for parents, children and the school to work together in partnership in relation to pupils’ learning;
  • Encourage pupils and their parents to share and enjoy learning experiences;
  • Reinforce learning covered in class by providing further opportunities for the individual pupil;
  • To practise or consolidate basic skills and knowledge;
Thank you, Amariah for your picture of the God of North.
Loki looks super mischievous in your drawing. Well done!
Thanks again to Lia for her 'Wanted' poster. It looks excellent!
Friday 27th of March
Good morning to everyone on a Friyay!
I would like to start this day with a beautiful quote by Nelson Mandela:
''Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world''.
I wonder if you know what it might mean?

TT rock stars
How many coins did you collect yesterday?
Can you beat your own record today or challenge a classmate to a rock star duel? 
Rock on, time tables rock stars!
Today in Maths we are carrying on learning about the angles.
However, today you will learn how to find a missing angle. Exciting!
Have a look at this lesson I have prepared for you.
There are also questions that you need to answer. Do not rush and double check every calculation.
When you finish - have a go at a challenge.
Good luck!
Today in Literacy we are learning about direct speech and inverted commas.
Who can remember our success criteria for direct speech?
''I wonder if it's going to be warm tomorrow?'' asked Ms Ruta dreamily.
Use this example when you complete your worksheet.
If you are still struggling to remember - watch this funny educational video about inverted commas.
Use  a word mat with over 150 words that can help you replace the word 'said'!
After the activity, I would like you to write your own dialogue to include into your diary entry for today.
Let me know how you got on.
Design and Technology
To finish off the week - I have a super fun activity planned.
My sister and I were real fans of it when we were your age, so I know that you will love it.
I want you to design an obstacle course.
1. Get permission from adults at home.
2. Choose a setting. Is it going to be indoors or maybe you have an outdoor area  you could use?
3. Draw, design and label your obstacle course.
I made one as well, so you can have an idea of how the design should look.
Be as creative as you can and think about all of the different materials you could use.
I am thinking: chairs, tables, cushions, building blocks, skipping ropes, paper, card boxes. Anything you have at home and more.
Take your time designing it.
Also, you can get some inspiration from these videos I've found:
Enjoy! I know you will.
For your exercise - create and then complete your obstacle course.
Can you invite your siblings and/or adults to join?
Maybe you can use a timer to see who was the quickest?
Have fun!
