This page will now be updated weekly with homework. This will always include spellings and some maths.co.uk work. There will also be longer term topic work which will be set periodically. Sometimes this work will be set in the form of videos, sometimes worksheets will be uploaded, and the spellings will be listed as they are below (update 12.3.21 having spoken to the class, they have told me they would rather homework be written up on here, so there will only be videos in cases where something complicated needs explaining and I can’t get the message across in text!). If members of the class need to isolate, they will be invited to tune in to our lessons live on zoom. If this is not possible we can discuss alternative arrangements such as videos uploaded to here / Class Dojo. If anyone has any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me on Dojo.

This week, we learned about the different levels of the underworld that the Atecs believed in, and the challenges that they had to face in order to achieve eternal peace. Your challenge (to achieve eternal peace from me) is to create your own nine levels of the underworld and challenges that need to be faced in order to achieve eternal peace. I would like you to present these to the class in any way that you think is appropriate. This could be in the form of a video, powerpoint, song, interpretive dance… Whatever you want! Good luck!

Are there any situations that they think are unfair in the world? How would applying the quotes or principles of Gandhi help?
Choose one of the situations that you have discussed and split a piece of A4 paper into 3 pieces.
Draw a picture of their situation on the top third of the paper. Use speech bubbles or a short description to help describe clearly what is happening in the picture. In the middle of the paper ask them to write a quote from Gandhi that would help to improve the situation. If anyone cannot find a suitable quote they could describe how they think Gandhi would have improved the situation. At the bottom of the piece of paper ask them to draw the improved situation.
“In a gentle way you can shake the world.”
“If all Christians acted like Christ, the whole world would be Christian.”
“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
“An eye for an eye and everyone shall be blind.”
“Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love.”

- The Path – how are you going to get there? What qualifications do you need? Where do you need to go to get those qualifications? This one might take a bit of research!
- The Obstacles – what obstacles might you face on the path to your dream? How are you going to overcome them? Write this all in a table and then when you face these obstacles you will be able to overcome them!
We are looking at all things mental health week today, so our activities are slightly different!

You can find today’s maths work below. There is also work available on maths.co.uk
English won’t be uploaded today as it is just a series of discussions in small groups – breakout rooms don’t make for good recordings but they do make for good lessons! The task, however, was to write the story that we have spent a couple of weeks working on. Please don’t forget to send it through.

Above is a list of the 10 largest volcanoes in the world. Using Google Maps / Google Earth, locate them and mark on the world map where they are located. If they are in the Ring of Fire, mark them on that map too. I would also like you to colour code the vocanoes, one colour for active, one for dormant and one for extinct. A final task for you to do is to draw on and label the countries on the Ring of Fire map, and write in each country how many active volcanoes there are there.
If you would like to find more large volcanoes and place them on the maps, please, be my guest!

Here is a list of websites for you to use to identify some technical language linked with volcanoes. Remember to find out what the words mean, write a definition of them and try to use them in a sentence.
Have a go at the volume work on maths.co.uk, if you find this to not be challenging enough, there are some more difficult questions below:

In the live lesson this afternoon we will be watching video about tectonic plates. I’m aware of lagging issues, so I am going to put a link to the video here. If you are worried about lagging issues, feel free to mute our lesson when the video starts and then play the video on youtube on your own device. You can then unmute me when the video is finished and we will carry on. Having the link here is also going to be useful so that you can refer back to it later to help with your tasks.
This week’s spelling words to pop into sentences and learn for next Friday:
Hi everyone, for today’s maths we are going to be looking at calculating the area of a triangle. There are questions on maths.co.uk to do after the lesson, and there are some tricky challenge questions attached to this post. Cya at 9!

I forgot to record the area and perimeter lesson (sorry), but log on to maths.co.uk for the main bulk of the lesson and check below for the trickier problems.
The English lesson recorded, but because it features 10 minutes of A Perfect Planet, it has incurred a copywrite claim on YouTube – oops! Feel free to have a look on BBC iPlayer and watch the first ten minutes. The questions to answer are below.
Check Class Dojo for a quick thank you message and a little overview of what we will be doing tomorrow – Mr. J
Good morning everybody! I hope you had a happy and healthy Christmas. Keep an eye on this page initially for uploaded work and videos. As we move to live lessons I intend to upload them to this page once they have concluded for those who could not make it to the lesson there and then, however having not attempted one yet I can’t say for certain how well that will work! If it doesn’t, there will be a recap video and resources posted here.
