Ash Class Home Learning
Welcome to Ash Class's home learning page. Here you will find a range of ideas and resources to support you in teaching your child at home.
Summer Term 2 Week 1
White Rose Maths
From this week, the White Rose Maths resources available for home learning are changing. There will still be a daily video presentation but there will no longer be a matching work sheet. Instead, after watching the video, there will be a link to that day’s BBC Bitesize page for more information and even more lesson content. Use the links below to take you to the relevant page for your child.
After such a great response to the missing glue stick mystery I have added lots more to keep you busy.

Keeping in touch
For your English task this week I thought we could try and reconnect with one another. I know lots of you are missing your friends from school and probably haven't seen or spoken with them in a long time. I thought it would be nice if we all wrote letters, notes or postcards to Ash Class that will be shared on our class page (a bit like virtual penpals.) It is up to you what you would like to include in your writing. You might like to share with the class what you have been doing at home, you could illustrate it or add pictures. You might like to write a list of things you are looking forward to doing when we all see each other again. You might have found some really good ways to keep busy during lock-down that you think would be useful to share. I can't wait to read them all. It would be good if we could get as many of our class to respond.
Reading - The worst witch by Jill Murphy
Follow the link to listen to extracts from the book and try the activities which focus on explaining the writer's choice of words and what they can tell us about the characters, as well as predicting what might happen next.
Also here are some reading comprehensions as I know that these have been a popular activity at home.
Punctuation and Grammar
As well as a written task I am going to start and provide a punctuation and grammar based activity for you to try. This weeks focus is:
Using paragraphs correctly
Using subordinating conjunctions
I have assigned 2 tasks for the children to complete on the busy things area of school 360 (see below for access) Once the children complete and submit their work it will give me an overview of how you did.
There's a new app that's just been released on School360.
I emailed your child's log in details before Easter.
It has activities and games covering every subject so take a look. This week I have assigned 2 french tasks for the children to complete and submit this week.
Below is a help sheet showing you how to access it once you have logged in to School360.
Religious Education - The story of Rama and Sita
Watch the video clips about the story of Rama and Sita. Try the activities below or create your own story board using the resource provided.
Well being week
Welcome back after half term. I hope you have all had a lovely time and enjoyed the sunshine.
This week as we prepare for the return of some children back to school we thought it would be a good chance to think about mental health and well-being and all that this encompasses. This is important for those children and parents thinking about returning to school and also those who will still be learning from home.
Below are two social stories designed to help children understand about the corona virus and what it will be like when they return to school. There is also a useful power point which explains in child friendly terms what social distancing really means.
You are amazing
You are amazing Ash Class, each and everyone of you! To celebrate this, make a poster with all of the qualities that make you amazing. Below are some ideas to get you started. Send me a picture and I will share them in our class gallery.
Things I am looking forward to...
Mental health…. It’s something we all have, sometimes it’s good and sometimes not so good.
In class we are very good at talking about our Mental Health and trying to address any concerns we might be having.
Unfortunately, the situation we are in at the moment has stopped all that. So, at the start of lock down, I made myself a special jar. Having things to look forward to can make me feel happier and improve my well being. Each time I think of something I would like to do in the future, or that makes me happy, I write it on a piece of paper and place it inside my decorated jar.
When the jar is full, or when I’m feeling fed up. I open up the jar and read through the things I have written that are inside the jar. It makes me feel better.
Create your own well being happy jar. Each time you think of something you would like to do in the future, write it on a piece of paper and place it inside your decorated jar.
This is my jar and some of the things that I am looking forward to...
Just like your big feelings, shake up a glitter jar and watch it swirl all over, crazy like. Then set the jar down, watch it swirl and breathe. As you breathe and are still, the glitter starts to slowly settle and become more calm. Watch until you can see through the jar again.
Use the video below to create your own piece of mindfulness Art.
Animals including humans
Earlier in the year we found out that the human body has 206 bones. Use the sheet below to label the bones, draw a life size skeleton with labels or create a skeleton from cotton buds. The catchy song will have you singing the names of the bones in no time.
Try this quiz to test your knowledge on bones.

Experiments at home
Have a go at some of these experiments which are all designed so that you can do them at home. I have also included some STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) challenge cards for you to have a look at.
Over the last few weeks you have been finding out about the UK and it's counties, cities, rivers and mountains. Your task is to find out about a country of your choice. Below are some questions that you many like to consider when researching your chosen country.
Where in the world is your country?
Which continent is it in?
What is the flag for your country?
What are the surrounding oceans/seas?
What is the capital city?
What is the longest river?
What is the highest mountain?
What is the population?
Which currency is used in your country?
Are there any other countries that share a border with your country?
What wildlife would you expect to see?
Try to think of an imaginative way to present your information - you may want to make an information book, travel brochure, a quiz, lift the flap questions with answers underneath or a question and answer matching game. The choice is yours.
Digi maps for Schools
Digi maps is a great free resource (until 31st July) which supports the development of map work skills. Log in here using the details below and have a play around. Can you find where you live?
