Hello my lovely Woodpeckers. How are you? I hope you are all well and not giving your parents and carers too much of a hard time! I am fine and keeping myself busy looking after my family and Home schooling Lily. She is nowhere near as hardworking and enthusiastic as you and I miss you all very much.

Keep checking the websites class page daily as I will be updating it with learning activities to keep you all out of trouble and to help give your brains a daily workout.

I hope you are enjoying PE with Joe Wickes, I have been doing it with Lily everyday.

Don't forget to take an Accelerated Reader test when you have read a book.

See you all very soon, stay safe

Mrs Osborne

Computing at home

In summer term children will be researchers and present their findings. 

Children, I would like you to research about our new summer topic.

Activity 1: I can generate 3 questions about our new topic 

Write these down on a piece of paper or can you type these on your device.

Activity 2: I can use a search engine to research my questions.

Children should open the internet and use their preferred search engine to find the answers to their questions. Children to record their answers how they want to.

Activity 3: I can use different search engines.

Now can children use a new search engine to find answers to their questions (Google, Wikipedia, Bing, Yahoo) Which one did you prefer to use and why? Explain to an adult. Children to continue to record their answers.

Activity 4: I can present my findings using technology

Children need to use a type of software (paint, powerpoint, is also an app), video) to present their findings they collected using the internet. 

Well done, Woodpeckers for a great assembly today!
