Home Learning Week Beginning 1st June

School Day

School Day is our additional day each week - the day that we do at school.  Some of you aren't able to join us in school and we don't want you to miss out on what we are doing so this is your 'School day'.  The activities aren't related to anything else that you are doing in home learning so you can do them whenever you get chance.  You might even want to pop your school uniform on for your virtual school day - if it still fits! 

For the occasion this week, Mr Lether cut his hair and Mrs Swanwick made sure that her hair looked ok!                       



Reading: Please could you read for an hour today? This can be your Bug Club Book or your own choice of reading book.  You might not have finished your 1-7 chapters for Holes so you can catch up today.

Maths: Task 1 - Theme Park Maths (there is an easier version which uses smaller and easier to deal with numbers if you prefer).

  • Task 1a: Design your theme park. You have £500 000 to spend on your theme park. Use the prices & information page to see what you can spend your money on. Use squared paper if you have some. If not, be creative with plain paper and try to estimate the size of your attractions using the proportions of squares which would have been used. Keep a log of your spending.
  • Task 1b: Label your theme park and design some of your rides.
  • Task 1c: Create a poster to advertise your theme park.

We will continue this project next week. We will look at your expenses in running your theme park and your profits based on the number of visitors you attract, so plan it well! Please email in your theme parks so that I can judge how popular it will be with visitors to begin with.

PSHE – Transition to secondary school.
Before we start thinking about moving on to secondary school first of all we want you to think about yourself and the qualities that you have. Don’t be embarrassed, be proud and think of everything – it’s cool to be proud of yourself. If you can’t think as yourself, imagine what your family and friends would say about you.
1. Draw an outline of yourselves. Identify what your strengths, qualities and skills are. Write these around your picture.
2. Can you put together a set of questions, worries and concerns you have about moving from Bridgetown to your new secondary school. Over the next few weeks we hope to be able to answer them in our School Day PSHE sessions. Please email them in to help us with our planning for this. We will share these sessions with everyone either in school or through video or powerpoint.


Thursday 4th June

Good morning everyone, here is your home learning for today.  Later on today I will post the 'school day' learning.  These are the learning activities that we have been doing in school but can still be done at home if you are NOT joining us in school at the moment.  They are not related to any of our other home learning lessons but important for you too.  We will title the section 'SCHOOL DAY'

As promised yesterday I will be putting up the work that we have been sent in this week on irrigation devices, do send in any more pictures, photos and your designs and evaluations.


​​Hope that you all have a good day.

Mrs Swanwick and Mr Lether smiley wink

DT Mayan Irrigation device

Continue with the activities for this that are under Tuesday and Wednesday.  If you don't have the resources to actually construct it you can still do the design part.



Wednesday 3rd June

Good morning everyone.  Hope that you have had a good couple of days.  We are half way through our first week back in school and it has been lovely to see everyone who has been able to be back.  We hope that you enjoyed it - it was certainly different to what we have all been doing since we left school in March.  If you look on the timetable at the bottom, we all have a school day, whether you are doing this in school or at home, so if you aren't in school this week do have a go at the activities.  If you have any questions about heading to secondary school, please email us with your questions and we will try and include these in our PSHE sessions and tasks.


We will also update the photos this week from our home learning.  Please don't forget to send in photos of your work.  This celebrates what you have done but also acts as a great stimulus for others.  Yesterday in school we looked at Megan and Elise's different Mayan irrigation systems for watering plants at home - it was really inspiring!


Have a good day.
