Wider Curriculum Home Learning WC 25th January

23 Jan 2021

Hi Phoenix,

Below you will find lots of links and activities to help you with your learning this week. The sessions follow the order of the timetable you have - don't forget to check with your parents if the timings are suitable to you (don't worry if they can't be done at that time and you have to do them at a different time or if there is something you cannot get done). Currently, the learning is there for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; I will get the rest of the week's learning onto the page as soon as possible.

Please make sure that you check what Mrs Bassitt has put carefully as you need to watch two short videos before her session at 1.15pm on Wednesday.

I hope you enjoy the activities we have put together for you and that you have fun learning this week.

I am looking forward to seeing you on our Zoom sessions.

Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Foster smiley

Join one of the Total Sports Coaches for a PE session to get you active whilst you're having to stay at home. Don't forget you also have access to the Real PE site which has some great activities for you to have a go at. Your parents should have a user name and password for you and there is a great video to watch to get you started.

History @ 1.15pm -recorded session - link in files on Teams

This week we are moving our learning further forward to look at the role of women during the war. As many of the men were away fighting, the women's roles at home changed dramatically. During the presentation (there is a recorded version on Teams) you will be asked to carry out different activities.

Firstly, choose one of the letters below to find out about the job 'you' are being offered. I would then like you to find out more about that job by carrying out research - in particular see if you can find out about your key duties, expected pay and working conditions.

Then I would like you to carry out an activity around propaganda posters and answer the questions from the slides. You will be looking more into propaganda posters tomorrow with Mrs Bassitt.

Finally, I would like you to think about and answer the questions relating to life for women before, during and after the war.

Following last week's session on what makes agood poster and your brilliant efforts to create a poster on a global issue, we are moving on to look at propaganda poster used in WWII. This will support you work in history.

Please watch these two short videos before we meet for the lesson. Watching them will take about 10 minutes.
One is about poster in England and the other in Canada - both will support your knowledge.

In the lesson we will look at the powerpoint below:
