Home Learning Projects 2020 - 2021

If your child has to isolate, please see the below table for the latest weekly home learning projects.

Week commencing 19th October 2020 English Maths This week is topic week in school.  Our unit is Early Islamic Civilisation. I've set you a website template on Purple Mash.  Research the below and add information to your webpage, submit it on Thursday!
Monday Develop subject specific vocabulary Solve multiplication problems Where is Baghdad and why was it a significant place in 500AD?
Tuesday Past and present tense Multiply using column multiplication What is the Silk Road and why was it significant? 
Wednesday Gather information for a non-chronological report  Long multiplication word problems What religion did people follow
Thursday

Write a non-chronological report 

I have set this as a to-do on Purple Mash.  This will essentially be your hot write for this unit. I know that you will be disappointed that you missed the lesson on creating your own sea creature to write about. So, your writing today can either be about Pandas, like you've been studying this week, or your own sea creature (template below).  Ensure that you plan before you write and hand in your work!

Multiplying decimals Find, or create, some geometric art inspired by Mosque tiles and submit your website

Homework

Here is our homework takeaway menu for this half term.  Mains are tasks that children should be completing weekly.

Starters and sides can be completed at your child's leisure. Starters recap prior learned knowledge, and sides give children the opportunity to start learning about our future topics. Some of these tasks can be completed using Purple Mash's 2Publish software, which can be found on the tools menu of the site.
