Today we've got a message from Mr Chick about some exciting PE you can try at home! Scroll down for the rest of our learning for today.


Sussex Virtual School Games- Can we beat St Marks's??!!!


Why not try competing against other schools, like St Mark's, in the Sussex Virtual School Games? This is a sports challenge that you can do from home and then give in your scores to see if we can do better than other schools. So far there have been hockey, tennis, football and gymnastics activities. The new challenge for this week (week beginning 1st June) is netball and basketball!


Sign up at https://www.activesussex.org/virtual/ to find out what the challenges are and to submit your scores!


Currently St Mark's are way ahead of us, as more of their school are doing the challenge and have scored more points! This week, can we all give it a go and beat them? That would make Mr Chick so happy!!


If you want to send a picture of you doing a challenge, send it to our school email address homelearning@caw.brighton-hove.sch.uk.


Good luck and thanks for representing City Academy Whitehawk so brilliantly!


Mr Chick


Writing - 11.06.20

Today we writing the last part of our stories. I have loved hearing them - well done for your brilliant writing! The end of the story goes like this:

He felt springy, light and happy! All the animals asked him to play again. He replied "Yes I can!". 

The parts you need to change are:

He felt ________. __________ and _________! All the ______s _____e him to ____________. He ______ed  "_______________!".

Here's my story:

He felt excited, ecstatic and intrigued. All the farmers asked him to come outside. He replied "I'm coming out now!".



Can you have a go at using the story map to write the end of your story? I can't wait to read them!


Maths - 11.06.20

I hope you enjoyed describing the different coins we learned about on Monday.  Remember these are the coins that we use when we are buying things with money. They are called 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p and £1.



Each coin has a different value, which means how much it is worth, and that's why we have lots of different coins! 1p has a value of 1, 2p has a value of 2, 5p has a value of 5, 10p has a value of 10, 20p has a value of 20p and 50p has a value of 50. The number in it's name help us remember it's value for these coins! £1 and £2 are a little bit different. £1 has a value of 100 and £2 has a value of 200! Now have a go at this worksheet - remember to write the values!

Reading - 11.06.20

Well done on practising all of those sounds on Monday! Knowing all of your sounds is one of the most important parts of being able to read new words. Whenever we learn a new sound, we say the sound and a sentence called a 'ditty' that ends with that sound. e.g. air air, that's not fair.


Here are the ones we didn't cover. Can you have a go?



If you can't remember any of the sounds, here they are:

a_e a_e, make a cake (these are called split digraphs and a letter goes in the middle)

e_e e_e, pete the athlete

i_e i_e, nice smile

o_e o_e, phone home

u_e, u_e, huge brute

ear ear, hear with your ear

ai ai, snail in the rain

ea ea, a cup of tea

ire ire, fire fire!

oa oa, goat in a boat

ew ew, chew the stew

oi oi, spoil the boy

Can you remind me of the 4 countries in the United Kingdom? If you've forgotten, listen to  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncqDJW4EhmE again! It's so catchy it'll help you remember.


On Mondat we learned about the capital cities in England, which is the country in which we live. The four countries of the UK and their capital cities are:


1. England - London

2. Wales - Cardiff

3. Scotland - Edinburgh

4. Northern Ireland - Belfast




Today we are going to visit these capital cities to see what they are like. This is going to help you with your Computing work for today too! 

Watch this video to visit the four capital cities

KS1 Geography UK Capitals

Can you answer these questions about your visit?

Which cities did you visit?

What landmarks did you see there?

Which was your favourite capital city?


Science - 11.06.20

Remember that we can also group animals based on what they eat. There are three groups which are:


Carnivores - animals that only eat MEAT

Herbivores - animals that only eat PLANTS

Omnivores - animals that e - at MEAT and PLANTS


Here are some great videos to find a bit more about them - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BWC4sxt0vU & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCFU3tLdjRY


Those videos showed us that the teeth an animal has can show us which group it is in...



Pick an animal that you'd like to make and find out whether it is a herbivore, omnivore or carnivore. Remember what it's teeth look like and add them in. I can't wait to see how they turn out, it could look like this:



Computing - 11.06.20

Well done everyone who had a go at the quizzes from Monday! You did such a brilliant job.

I have sent you some postcards to write on Purplemash from your visits to each capital city in Paragon today.



Each 2do has another video you can watch to remind you about the city! Don't forget to send them back to me, I'd love to see what you think.


I've also sent you some artwork to do about animals! They are missing their teeth though. Can you add in their teeth? Make sure to check if they are a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore! Otherwise they won't be able to eat.
