Monday 29th June

Monday PSHE


Discuss with your child what they think the word 'learning' means. How do they know when they are learning? What does it look like? Afterwards, ask your child - should learning be easy? 


Activity 1

Use the Powerpoint to help explain to your child the magic power of 'yet'. This is the idea that learning new things isn't always easy straight away but that we can become better at them by practising, asking for help and not giving up!


Activity 2 

Complete the worksheet to change the statements into ones to help positive learning - using the power of yet!

Thursday 2nd July

Thursday History 


Elm Class, 


You have been asked by the King and Queen to build a new castle in medieval Britain. They want you to build a defensive castle against invaders from France. They also want you to consider other important geographical features when considering where to build your castle.



Activity 1

Watch the video on the United Kingdom to recap on what countries make up Britain. On the map, label these countries and add in any geographical features you hear. Use the key to help you draw and label these. You could also use sites such as Google maps with an adult to identify some important geographical features of the UK. 


Activity 2

Using your map of the UK with the geographical features added on, decide where would be best to build a medieval castle. Use the picture below to help you decide what might be important. Don't forget that the invaders are coming from France, so you may need to find out where that country is too! 



Use the link below to find out more about where castles were really built in Britain.
