Home Learning Blog – Wednesday, 15th July
Welcome back again. Just a quick reminder, the last day of home learning will be tomorrow, as that is technically the last day of the school year. Here are your tasks for the day:
LO: Personal reflection on the past 14 weeks
- There’s no denying, this has been a unique and challenging few months for everyone. We have all had to adjust to these times in our own way. For you, as learners, you’ve had to adapt to a new way of learning at home. I’m sure it has come with its positives and negatives.
- I’d like you to write a reflection on the past few months since school closed. This should be a personal reflection, where you are able to share some of your feelings. Questions to help guide you include:
- How did you find home learning?
- What did you miss the most during lockdown?
- What are some of the positive things that you experienced?
- What was most difficult?
- What are you most excited to do again?
- I want you to write a few paragraphs on the experience you have had.
- Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica
- Play the maths game in the link above. There are a range of challenges and areas you must progress to. Try to get as many of them done. I expect you to play for at least 40 minutes – but it’s very fun, so you might want to play even longer! Enjoy : )
LO: Draw a sound creature
- This activity involves drawing on painting what you hear.
- Follow the instructions on the link, and play the sounds and ‘draw’ them.
- Pick a sound and press play.
- Close your eyes as you listen to the sound.
- You might want to listen for a bit before you start drawing.
- Replay the sound to inspire you as you draw.
- When you've finished, pick another track and draw another sound creature!
- There is a link for ‘Tate Paint’ which is a painting tool you may use also.
- Have fun! Allow the creativity to flow through you : )
Well done. That’s all for today!
Fun fact of the day: The goliath beetle is considered the largest insect in the world, reaching sizes of up to 100 grams (see image above to see just how big they can get)
