Blakeney’s Week Ahead Monday 30th November


Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. If you are self-isolating at home, you can keep up with what we are doing at school by following the daily timetable of work as set out below.

Power Maths notes: The practice book and text book pages can be obtained directly from me via email and cannot be published on the website for copyright reasons. Just write and ask for the relevant lessons and I will email them back.

Times tables notes: Please remember that you can login to ‘Tackling Tables’ to practise your times tables. You should be able to find premade flash cards on that website. Please email me if you have forgotten your login details for the website.

Education City notes: If you go to classwork, there are three folders where you can take assessments in Maths, English and Reading. After doing the assessments, Education City will then provide you with revision work that is designed to meet your individual needs. That’s right, by doing the assessments, the activities provided will be tailor made just for you!

Printing notes: Problems with printing? You won’t need to print anything off if you don’t want to. You can do all the work by looking at it on the computer screen and taking notes in a notebook or on paper.

Feedback: Remember to send a copy of your work to me by the end of the week or daily. This can be done by sending a photograph or attaching a document to ablack@gf.kwestacademy.com

Keep in touch and let me know if you have any problems. I look forward to seeing you back at school soon! Take care.

PERFORMANCE TASK

1 – Watch and study the way the words are communicated with sign language. Compare the performance to last week’s True Colours. What’s the same? What’s different?

  2. Stop and look at the lyrics without watching the video. Can you sign as you read?

Count on Me – Bruno Mars

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see
I’ll be the light to guide you
We’ll find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one, two, three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it, I can count on you like four, three, two
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah
Ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah

If you tossin’ and you’re turnin’ and you just can’t fall asleep
I’ll sing a song beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Everyday I will remind you, oh
We’ll find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one,…
