Home learning - Whole school activities

Dear Parents, the Home Learning section that has been created to aid and support the education of our children will be updated in the weeks ahead.

 

This page will be consistently updated with general links to websites which all children can use. We ask that you approach these tasks in a stress free manner, you do not need to download and print every document as the children can work from reading the information on the screen.

 

We also understand that this is a very confusing and frightening time for us all and we do not wish to add to the stress by expecting completion of all the online activities, they are there simply to help.

 

Please be reassured that when normality is restored, as a school we will resume the teaching of our children as normal.

Week 7 - Sentinus Challenge

 

This week we are going to focus on the topic of the weather.
Follow the instructions for our first challenge to see what happens to the sea level (water) in the bag. This challenge may be something that you look at everyday this week, depending on how much sunlight there is.

 

Today (Wednesday) we are continuing our theme of the weather this week. We challenge you to make your own rain cloud. All of the instructions you need are on the pdf.

 

Today is the perfect day for this challenge as we are experiencing a drastic change in the weather. We challenge you to make your own barometer to examine the air's  pressure and see if it matches what is happening with the weather.

Follow the instructions on the attached pdf

Week 6 - Sentinus Challenge 

 

This week our subject topic is Biology.

 

Today’s challenge is to make your own DNA strand. Follow the instructions on the PowerPoint and use the template on the word document to complete the challenge. If you want to challenge yourself, you could research a bit more about DNA and why it is so interesting!

Sentinus Challenge 1/5/20

Today's challenge is to bake! We want you to use your measurement skills and techniques to weigh ingredients to make whatever you want. We have attached a recipe but you don't have to stick to it, you may want to bake something of your own choice. We also have a video of the challenge on our TikTok profile (@sentinus_ni) which you can have a look at!

We can't wait to see your delicious treats and measuring skills.

Thanks,

Sentinus
