Royal Doulton - Home Learning


As well as the work pack that came home with your child you could look to do the following:  Get your child to help compile a shopping list. Watch a film and talk about the plot, etc. Read a book as a family. Keep a family diary.

As part of our anchor for next term we are looking at Our World.  To help prepare for the topic you child can prepare a leaflet on a chosen country. This builds on the skills they have developed this term. The following tasks are suggestions:

·         Where in the world are we?

·         Where in the world would you most like to visit? Why?

·         How far away from us is that country?

·         How can you travel to that country – train, aeroplane, boat?

·         What currency do they use?

·         What Language do they speak?

·         Is the country known for anything – technology, food, fashion?

·         What is their form of transport – trams, bikes, boats?

·         Do they have national dress?

·         Fun facts about the country

These are only ideas, your child can also create posters, a flag or flags if they are doing more than one country. They can further develop the topic as they are inspired to do so.


As well as the work pack that came home with your child you could look to do the following:

·         Go on Prodigy each day – login information should be in planners

·         Weigh or measure ingredients if you do any cooking at home

·         Look at clocks and tell the time

·         Think about the types of 2D and 3D shapes around you

·         If you do go to the shops, work out your change

·         Alex, Kenzie, Thomas, Kayla, Josh, Alisha - Look on BBC Bitesize, Corbett Maths, Maths is Fun websites, or watch videos – Heggarty maths on You Tube

·         Everyone else - Look on Topmarks, Maths is Fun websites

·         Maths worksheets can be found on Math Salamanders or Math-aids websites


Please refer to the Science week PDF for home activities,links and resources for things you can do at home related to our diversity topic.Also I want you to find out about Dominant and recessive genes that we have been working on in our adaptation and inheritance topic,go on line and then try to work through the attached work sheet.(DNA and Genetic Inheritance)

There are so many Art ideas that don’t cost much. I have always maintained the idea that if you have a pencil and paper, you can never be bored! Whether you are a doodler or you try to improve your observational drawing skills. There are a wealth of objects and maybe even real live models (animals if you have pets, or humans if you can persuade them to sit still!) you can draw in your home. Or look in a mirror for an updated self-portrait. Anything at all, even drawing the shadows on a toilet roll! Above all else, experiment with any materials you have. Collage with scrap paper. The white of an egg makes a good glue if you don’t have PVA glue. Draw on old newspapers. Sew with a chunky needle into scrap cardboard. Look up origami instructions. But above all have fun making and trying out new skills.


Computer Science:

Everyone should create a poster about their favourite films and games and why these are your favourite.

Create a list of technology around you – consider

·         Technology in the home

·          on the streets

·         in shops

·         In factories

·         In schools

  • Emergency services and hospitals


Can you keep a diary? See if you can start one in which you can put appointments that you might be going to or at least put in important days such as birthdays of relatives or friends. if you can get out with parents or carers go with them to a pedestrian crossing and practise what we have learnt but do not cross on your own, you must be with parent or carer.


Food Technology:

Pupils in Royal Doulton have cooked lots of foods in food tech this year that they could cook again at home with help and support from a responsible adult.


They have all participated at every level – choosing ingredients; weighing and measuring out; preparing & combining ingredients. Timing how long something cooks is a fabulous opportunity to teach the maths of timing –whether with a traditional clock or digital timer… predicting and actually setting the timer.  


All pupils also take part in clearing tables; washing or drying up and putting equipment away – so please be encouraging them to help out at meal times also.

I’ve included the recipe for salt dough also for some sensory fun (this can keep in the fridge for a week; DO NOT eat !!)


I’m attaching photos of the recipes for your reference

Here are some links to easy recipes we have used also:

Play some games and watch some videos on the BBC Horrible Histories website or explore the BBC History website:

I’d love it if you could draw some pictures of what you find out to create a gallery at school and/or write some stories about what happened in the past.

Maybe you could be a character in a historical story who goes on an adventure?  Or even better, you could make a history story book or facts book, with pictures
