Norbriggs Primary School

This is where you will find work for Mrs Ward's Dahl class. There will be daily Numeracy and Literacy along with ongoing Phonics and Spelling activities and a mix of Science, Topic and RE along with other enrichment activities to keep your children's brains busy.

Please can you continue to read daily with your children and to practise times tables using Time Tables Rockstars.

Please just do what you can to help your children during these difficult times and take plenty of breaks. I do NOT expect you to complete all the work every day but would love to see what you do get done on Remind.

We miss you all and can't wait to have you back in class,

Please watch the PPT video and then have a go at playing Bone Bingo (you don't need to print all the boards!) Alternatively, see if you can identify the bones by looking at the x-ray.

There is some tricky vocabulary here so please can you read and discuss with your child.

WELLNESS

WEDNESDAYS

We all know how important it is to look after ourselves at this time (and always!) Please ensure you take some time with your children to take care of your mental and physical wellness too. I will upload a range of activities aimed at taking some 'me' time. These are not essential, just suggestions, but I would love to hear about anything you and your children are doing. 

 

Some suggestions-

TOPIC

  • A knight was a mounted soldier who performed military service for a nobleman. A man was created a knight by being dubbed (struck on both shoulders with a sword). This was a ceremony that was usually performed in church. In return for a grant of land or money, the knight did military service for his lord on a set number of days.

    To go into battle a knight needed a horse, a shield, a lance, a sword and a hauberk. The knight also wore a conical helmet that had a nose guard for further protection against blows to the face. Norman knights also used spurs and stirrups. Spurs were used to drive the horse forward in battle. Stirrups enabled the knight to keep his legs straight during battle. This held him securely in place while delivering or receiving blows.

     
  • Can you label the knight?
