'With Jesus, we learn as a joyful family and flourish to be the best that we can be'
Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd June - RE
To finish off our RE unit from the last few weeks, I have attached some documents below to help you summarise your learning and complete a collective worship, just like we do at school. Think back to all the RE activities you have completed about rules, good and bad choices, saying sorry and forgiveness. You can choose one of the leaflets below and then use it to remember your learning (see first leaflet task - recording what you think is important), rejoice and celebrate (your collective worship) and renew and apply your learning (final leaflet task - choosing a rule to keep today or showing how you are sorry). The leaflet tasks can be completed in your book. I have given you two afternoons to complete this. You could complete the first leaflet task and plan your collective worship on day 1, then deliver your collective worship and complete the final leaflet task (choosing a rule to keep today or showing how you are sorry) on day 2.
Wednesday 24th June - History
L.O: To understand how people travelled to the seaside in the past
With your grown up, talk about how you get to the seaside nowadays. Is it in the car, train or possibly by bus? How do you think people got to the seaside in Victorian times?
Look at pictures of horse drawn carriages and charabancs, steam trains and a motorised charabanc to take people to the seaside in the olden days. This is how people travelled there. Horse drawn carriages and charabancs were slow and took a long time.
The invention of the railway in Victorian times meant people could get to the seaside much faster and more cheaply. Poorer people (factory workers etc) used to just go for the day. Richer people went for the week and stayed in guest houses or hotels.
Look at the map of UK seaside resorts and talk to your grown up about how people living in mill towns in the middle of the country (Yorkshire for example) were a long way from the seaside. In Victorian times, things changed and it meant the seaside seemed a lot closer now on the train.
Divide your page in half. Put the headings then and now. Draw and label how people travelled to the seaside in the past and how they get there nowadays.
Underneath write 3 or 4 to explain why the invention of the railways in Victorian times made the seaside more popular. Also, explain who went for just a day trip and who stayed for a week.
Thursday 25th June - Science
L.O: To understand the importance of recycling materials
This week we are going to look at plastic and recycling.
Watch the PowerPoint on plastic and discuss with your grown up how plastic is useful to us but also harmful to the environment. Watch the PowerPoint on other materials that can be recycled. Make sure you understand what recycling is. Discuss which materials can be recycled and what we should do with them (put them in the recycling bin). Talk about where you have seen recycling bins. Have a look around your house and see if you can find any plastic bottles or tins etc with the recycling symbol on.
Your task is to design a poster to make people aware of the importance of recycling. Make sure you put the recycling symbol somewhere on your poster.
Write 4 or 5 sentences to explain what recycling is and why it is so important to the environment.
Friday 26th June - Art
This week we are looking at art made from different materials and some recycled materials (linked to our science this week).
Look at the images of seaside collages and you can also google seaside collages to give you some ideas. Talk to your grown up about you like and dislike about the different pictures.
Your task is to create your own seaside collage using different materials and some recycled materials. When you have finished, you can take a photo and email it to school so that we can share them on the class webpage.
