Winterton’s extra blog for our self-isolation time.

Good morning everyone.

I am so sad we won’t see each other before Christmas now, but that doesn’t mean we need to stop learning. The weekly blog that has just been published has all your literacy work for this week on it, and here is the maths that you can do. There is an activity for today through to Thursday.

Monday https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/translating-simple-shapes-6hjpat

Tuesday https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/reflecting-simple-shapes-6mu3ec

Wednesday https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/solving-practical-coordinate-problems-part-1-c9h3ec

Thursday https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/solving-practical-coordinate-problems-part-2-6hh34e

All these are work on coordinates to make sure you don’t forget anything.

Here are some Christmas coordinate activities:

Christmas Coordinates – Elf Christmas Coordinates – Frosty (SENLOWAB-1cmx1cm) Christmas Coordinates – Holly (SENLOWAB-1cmx1cm) Christmas Coordinates – Rudolf Christmas Coordinates – Santa

And some squared paper that you can print out to do the coordinates work on:




Some time ago I spoke to you about chromatography – where we can split black into different colours (it was when we were looking at how we can split white light into different colours). I said we can do a similar thing to black, remembering this is different pigments of colour and not different wavelengths of light. This is the experiment I was talking about.

You can use coffee filter paper or kitchen towel for this experiment, a glass of water and a pencil or something similar to suspend the paper just into the water. You can use any type of black felt tip, as long as it is water-soluble ink. You can try with different black pens to see the difference in the different blacks. You can get some amazing results. Send me photos of your results.


Art and craft

Here are some ideas that you can do over the next few days to help put you in the Christmassy mood!



And here is a useful site that gives you a few more ideas. https://www.shutterfly.com/ideas/christmas-crafts-for-kids/

There are many sites if you search ‘downloadable Christmas art and craft’.

Please stay in contact and show me what you have been doing. Also I will need to see your literacy work to finish off our Gadgets unit.

Stay busy, stay safe, keep smiling and keep in touch!

Happy Christmas and see you all in the new year!!
