English

This week is the start of our unit of work on Greek Myths. We haven't set many writing activities as we would like you to spend your time reading as many myths as you can. 

Below are some stories and links to film clips for you to read / watch. We hope that you may have some books of your own at home. If not and you are a member of a Warwickshire library, there may be some books for you to read on Borrowbox by clicking on the link below.

 

If you aren't a member of the Warwickshire Library, you can join for free by following the link below.

Maths

There are no longer any White Rose teaching videos and worksheets which follow how our curriculum in school would. Therefore, everything you need for each lesson will be on a PowerPoint (attached below). Each lesson (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) will include:

  • Introduction/teaching slide(s) 
  • Independent task
  • Support task
  • Problem solving and reasoning task
  • Home Learning Challenge

You will still be set Mathletics on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Topic

Read through the introduction to Ancient Greece Powerpoint and complete the time line activity. You can either print, cut and stick the events or you could make your own timeline to draw the events on.  As an extra challenge could you do some research of your own and add different events to the timeline?

 

Art

This week's art activity is to research and draw an Ancient Greek style pot. Use the PowerPoint and templates below to support you.

Optional activities

ICT - Add another page to your Ancient Greece website based on this week’s topic lesson. You could add a time line or select 3 important events to summarise. Step by step instructions for adding a new page as well as your front page are included in the documents below. 

World Oceans Day

On the 8th June it is World Oceans Day where people around the World celebrate and honour the ocean. There are some activities that you could do this week to promote and support this special day.  They are attached below.
