We would LOVE for you to contact us as we're really missing you all! It doesn't have to be the work we set for you; send us photos of your activities, or write us a letter or an email telling us about what you've been up to.
Scroll down to see some wonderful work about Africa that Kymani and Jack N have sent in. We would love to see some more!
Take a look at this timetable to see how we suggest you spend your time each day.
English Zoom lessons
We will continue working from a book called Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett. If you are able to get a copy that would be great, otherwise there is a link to a YouTube video of the book being read on the weekly overview. Please make sure that you have read through the week's timetable below so that you know what you will need to have ready for the Zoom lessons. Looking forward to seeing you!
Tuesday - apostrophes game.

On Monday you will work through some mental maths during the Zoom lesson. The work below is for you to complete after the lesson on Monday.
The booklet is an Arithmetic test. there is no need to complete this under test conditions. Just have a go and do as much as you can, then challenge yourself to answer one more!

Tuesday problem to carry on thinking about:
A watering can holds 5L of water. If it takes 10 jugs to fill it, how many millilitres does one jug hold?
Remember to also keep visiting TT Rockstars (Year 2 ) and Education City (everyone) as there are loads of games and activities to recap prior learning. Any activities within your child's year group will help with their learning. If they are struggling, you can access the year below's activities as well, but please don't go above their year group.
We would love to see more of you using TT Rockstars on a regular basis, preferably 15 minutes every day. This will be key to keeping up your times table skills in preparation for a return to school. You will have the 'Teacher set' which we have set for you to practise. To improve your 'Rock status' you will need to play a game from the 'Studio' section. This will test all tables up to 12x12 which you may not know, but just make a good guess for these ones!! Your speed in answering the questions will help you climb the leaderboard! We also want you to complete a 'Soundcheck' twice a week as we can see your progress on this. We can now see how many minute a day you are using TT Rockstars. We are setting a challenge to see who can average 5 minute a day!!!

Geography: Our new topic is AFRICA
Over the next number of weeks we would like you to find out as much information as you can about Africa. Below are a list of things you might want to think about. You can choose to present your information in any way. Perhaps make a video, a PowerPoint, a poster, an information leaflet, a booklet, anything that you choose. We would love to see the finished product.
Things you might want to include:
How many countries there are in Africa – then perhaps choose one to focus your research on.
Are there any famous people from there?
Any sports personalities?
What are the famous landmarks?
What kind of food is from there?
- Can you find a recipe and make it?
- Write a review of the recipe – would you make it again or recommend to a friend?
What is the weather like?
- How does this compare to Bingley?
Is it a holiday destination?
What animals would you find there?
What language do they speak?
What is the population?
Here are some websites to use as a starting point for your research
A big THANK YOU goes to Kymani for her lovely report about Zimbabwe and the wonderful pictures of when she visited Victoria Falls, in Zimbabwe.
Thank you Jack for this wonderful PowerPoint on Egypt. He even tried some traditional Egyptian food - how fantastic is that?
Here's another song for you to learn, although you might recognise it from our Thursday assemblies in church. It comes from South Africa and it's called Siyahamba.
We usually sing the words 'We are marching in the light of God'.
Look through the powerpoint below which tells you a little about a style of painting from east Africa called Tinga Tinga.
Once you have looked at the powerpoint, why don't you have a go at painting or colouring your own Tinga Tinga picture. There are some colouring sheets if you don't want to try to draw your own animal.

In preparation for more extended use of the laptops for typing in Key Stage Two, you might like to practise typing on a keyboard (if you're lucky enough to have a computer at home). This website helps you to become more familiar with where the keys are, and is a useful introduction to touch typing (typing on a computer without looking at your hands!). Give it a go! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zf2f9j6/articles/z3c6tfr
We know some parents may be unfamiliar with cursive handwriting, so this is a website that demonstrates how to form each letter: https://www.letterjoin.co.uk/
On desktop, the username is jk3889 and the password is home
On tablet, the username is jk3889 and the swipe passcode is from top left, down to bottom left, and across to bottom right (an L shape).
The children can practise their handwriting on lined paper - try using the common exception words and putting them into sentences!
Here are all the old videos from previous weeks on this page for you to download.
Choose 5 words a day from your child's list to learn and use in sentences. The sillier the sentence, the better! You can also use dice to play this spelling game and make learning to spell more fun!
Some children have been busy taking photos of things they've seen that are beautiful or interesting. Here's a gallery of all the entries.
If you'd like your own photo to feature here, submit your entries to email@example.com or tweet @TrinityBingley
