Week 3 - Monday 27th April
Dear children and parents,
It has been lovely to see and speak to so many of you this week. It has certainly made us feel like we are all still part of the same class and having a shared experience. If you have any suggestion for our meetings to make them more interactive for the children please let us know. We thought we might start with children reviewing a movie they have watched recently and they can give a verbal review to their friends during one of our weekly meets. If you would like to you can download one of the film review templates below.
Below you will find this weeks home learning plan plus work you can download.
Any concerns or questions or difficulties with login please get in touch. Please be aware that going forward the work sheets that accompany the White Rose home learning tutorial videos will no longer be available to the public. However Lapworth school has now subscribed to White Rose and the worksheets will be loaded here each week (please see below).
Please stay safe and well.
Mrs Brookes and Mrs Schroeter
PS. If you would like to help brighten our class web page would you like to make a self portrait that we can use to decorate the top of our class page. It can be in any medium you like (pencil, paint, felt tips, collage etc.). It would be great to have every member of our class up there.
Home Learning Week 3 Plan
Robotics Drawing and Story Writing Competitions for Children
The pupils of Lapworth School have been invited to enter two competitions inviting UK primary schoolchildren to share their creative works inspired by all things robotic.
These competitions are designed for children to complete at home during the Covid-19 lockdown.
For the “Draw A Robot” competition, children in Key Stage 1 (aged 5 – 7 years old) have the chance to draw a robot that they’d like to see in the future. The robot could be designed to accomplish any task or job – the sky’s the limit! The children will be able to submit a robot drawing, up to 200-word description, and five key features (labelled on the drawing).
The competition will be judged by robotics experts from the ESPRC UK-RAS Network, with the drawing competition being judged by Zoë Smith, Producer at Tate Kids.
There are fabulous prizes on offer, including a Makeblock Programmable robot kit, a Thames Komos Robotics Experiment kit, plus some unique and exclusive prizes courtesy of our guest judges.
The competitions close for entries on the 8th June 2020
For more information, read the attached pdf file and for details of prizes, judging criteria and to submit an entry, please visit https://www.ukras.org/school-robot-competition/

Forest School - Build a Cairn.
Cairns are man-made towers of natural stones, usually built as a landmark or a memorial, and making them is a great activity for kids.
Gather a range of flat rocks and pebbles in different sizes, and then stack them in order, with the largest at the bottom and the smallest at the top.
This improves gross and fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and concentration as they experiment with finding the stones’ balancing points to see how tall they can make their cairn.
