Learning Links for w/c 15th June

June 12, 2020

Hello everyone!

Welcome to a new week of your online learning. Please see the sessions below to link you to your learning for the week.

Messages for the Week

  • Each week, in addition to the Maths sessions, there will be a focus on an unlock challenge in Maths specific to each year group. (For more explanation, see Mrs Sharman’s video that has been sent to you). Year 4, your unlock Maths challenge for the week is to practice counting in multiples of 6. You might want to start each Maths session practicing these for a few minutes to get your brains warmed up, or practice these on days where you are just watching a Maths video. It is entirely up to you! You don’t need to spend lots of time on this – little and often is best!  Here are some links that you might want to use: Counting in 6s Interactive and Count in 6s sheet
  • Although the Year 4 Olympics can’t take place this year, don’t panic! South Cambs have put together a Virtual Mini Olympics with different fun challenges that you can take part in throughout this week: Year 4 Virtual Mini Olympics 2020
  • This week is also Refugee Week. Last Friday, Anglia Ruskin University paired with Norfolk Schools of Sanctuary to create a Day of Welcome.The Day of Welcome offers remote learning resources and suggested activities to help children learn about refugee migration and show solidarity with displaced people. This year’s resources are inspired by the stories of Basque Child refugees who sought sanctuary from the Spanish Civil War in the East of England in 1937.
  • One of the learning resources is a virtual ‘school trip’ to a new online exhibition, which you can visit here: Virtual School Trip from Havens East .All Day of Welcome resources are free and available to download here.

Sustrans Outside In

  • Walking, cycling and scooting are great ways to contribute to keeping us active and healthy in body and mind. During this time where we are mostly required to stay at home, these activities become harder to do so. Sustrans Outside In therefore aims to provide ideas and inspiration to bring health and wellbeing activities into the home.
