All Souls C of E Primary School - Home Learning

Dear Parents,

I hope this finds you safe and well and I hope that it is going smoothly at home with all of the changes in our current climate. Attached is a document which may help you to plan your child's day.

Each day,   I will post a collection of maths and English work for you to complete with your child. How you plan your day with your child is what suits your household best. 

We understand that it will be difficult for you to mark and help them with their work each day. I have tried to add answers to questions wherever possible.  Let children attempt the task, share the answers and allow children the opportunity to work out where they went wrong.

It would be great to see some photos of children completing tasks at home.  Please E-mail them to me.  

If there are any questions, comments or worries, please E-mail me at the following address:

 

wycoller@st-philips.lancs.sch.uk

My prayers and thoughts are with you all and your families at this difficult time.

 

Kind regards. 

Mrs Macdonald

Spring 2

Class novel

This half term, Our class novel will be 'Wonder'.

Wonder (Paperback)

 
August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a severe facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school.

Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, Auggie wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past his extraordinary face. Wonder begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include the perspectives of his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These voices converge to portray a community as it struggles with differences, and challenges readers, both young and old, to wonder about the true nature of empathy, compassion, acceptance, friendship, and—ultimately—kindness. Auggie is a hero for the ages, one who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

Spring 1 

Class text 

During the first half of the Spring term, we will be reading the play Macbeth.

The blurb tells us:

This is a story of ambition, power and murder. It is the
story of a man who would stop at nothing to become
king. It is a dark and bloody story ... that starts on a wild
Scottish heathland where three witches plot and spin their
spells... 

Mrs Blades and Mrs Macdonald can not wait to share this exciting play with the children.

Autumn Term Novel

Year 6 are currently reading the novel Trash by Andy Mulligan.

Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping on it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, the world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It's a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. It's a bag that will change everything.

Soon he and his friends are running for their lives. Hounded by the police, it takes all their quick-thinking and fast-talking to stay ahead. As the net tightens, they uncover a dead man's mission to put right a terrible wrong. And it's three street-boys against the world...

We will let you know our results next week.

Art

Year six have been studying the work of Georges Seurat. Seurat was a French Post-Impressionist painter. Seurat painted for a time with the Impressionist painters, Claude Monet, Renoir, Sisley and Pissarro. His scientific ideas about colour then led him to develop a different painting technique - known as pointillism. We copied some of his paintings using cotton buds.
