Homework and Homework Support 

 

Homework at The Manor has slightly changed this year, so please take some time to read through the information in the front of your child's homework book.  

 

 

Maths - times tables and number facts

Encourage your children to have fun learning their times tables with these interactive games: 

Online Safety 

 

Here at The Manor we take online safety seriously and encourage children to stay in control and stay safe when using the internet.  Talk to your children about what websites they visit, the games they play online and the apps they download.  Visit the Think You Know website to make sure you know how to support your child to stay safe while having fun online.  The Cyber cafe is a great place to start.   

 

Learning Theme:  Tremors

Tremors.  Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature's awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth.  Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects.  Discover the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth's breathtaking power.  

 

Rocks

Children will be learning about different types of rocks including those that are igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.  They will work together to sort a variety of rocks according to their observable and known properties including grain size, mineral pattern, size, colour and hardness.  The young scientists have been challenged to design an investigation to solve a problem. Which rock would be most suitable to use to build a new set of steps from the playground into the Nursery block?They considered which properties the rock needs to have and then carried out investigations to find the best rock for the job. 

 

"Conclusion.  I think the best type of rock to build steps into the nursery building is granite because granite is impermeable and durable.  It also doesn't need polishing and doesn't crumble easily.  It is very strong and is hard to scratch.  It looks nice and matches the building.  It won't be slippery." Orla. 

 

 

Find out more about rocks and minerals from this child-friendly website. 

Using their knowledge of rocks, and inspired by the work of English sculpture Andy Goldsworthy whose work is inspired by nature,  the children got creative to make interesting sculptural forms by arranging different types, colours and sizes of rocks and crystals.
