Week Commencing 13th July 2020
|Monday 13th||Tuesday 14th||Wednesday 15th||Thursday 16th||Friday 17th|
This week we thought we would mix things up a bit! It can be really hard to keep motivated when you have been away from school for so long and every day brings us closer to the summer holidays. We wanted to think of a way to help you keep going, just a little longer and we thought, wouldn’t it be amazing if you could choose your own topic to focus on this week! So, for this week’s activities we have provided suggestions on how you can present your work and things to focus on within your chosen topic, but it really is a topic of your own choosing!
It could be ANYTHING! Absolutely anything you are really interested in. It could be….
Trains Football or any other sport Formula One Something from history or the future
A game (yes, even Minecraft!) Pirates A hobby A creature (Real or Imaginary)
A famous person Technology Planes A film A book
We could go on; the options are endless! Just remember to choose something that will really motivate and inspire you!,
Choose your topic. Remember to think very carefully about what you want it to be, as you are going to be learning about it all week.
Create a mind map about your topic.
Click here for examples.
Place your “focus” or “heading” in the middle of the page and around the outside, write down as many facts as you can about your topic.
Make it eye-catching, include pictures and diagrams.
Today we would like you to pick a key event from your chosen topic.
It could be an important day, match or race, a key moment in a story, an invention, a key battle etc.
Create a detailed drawing all about this key event or moment!
Then around the outside generate as many words as you can that describe the event.
Remember to include:
Now you know what your topic is about today, we want you to pick one aspect from it.
It could be a person, a place or a thing and create a fact sheet or poster all about that one focus!
Remember to include:
Click here for a blank template.
Click here for a biography style template, (good if you are focusing on a person.)
Today we would like you to write some sentences about your topic.
Choose no more than 3 different aspects of your topic.
Minimum – write 5 sentences about your topic.
Maximum – write 3 paragraphs about your topic (Each paragraph about 1 aspect of your topic.)
Include the vocabulary you generated the other day, (Tuesday).

Additionally, this week we would like you to think back over your memories of year 4 and produce an important piece of writing for you ROA, which will help you remember what happened in 2019-2020.
Here is an overview of our activities from Autumn & Spring Term.
Here is a template.
The activities you took part in.
What you enjoyed & why?
The work you most enjoyed, are proud of & why?
Your experience of lockdown, what was it like for you? What did you do? What were your feelings & why?
What you will miss & what you look forward to next year.
Try to structure this piece of writing into 3 paragraphs, Autumn Term, Spring Term & Summer Term (Lockdown).
We will collect these pieces of writing in and place them in your ROA, which you will keep with you on your journey through Herne.
You have until the end of term to complete this.
You will need a dice (have a hunt through your board games!)
Click the dice for an interactive dice.
In your book divide it into 3 sections H T O
Then roll the dice – whatever the dice rolls, you must decide where to place the number, in the H, the T or the O column.
Repeat for the next two columns. Placing one digit at a time.
You can not change your mind!
Your goal is to make the largest number possible.
Repeat this several times.
Then try to make the smallest number.
Why not add a Thousands column! You now have 4 places to choose to put what the dice says.
Or, have a look on BBC Bitesize lessons.
Choose one of these investigations to complete.
Drawing it out and showing your workings will really help.
Also, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again.
