Welcome to Sketchbooks!“Sketchbooks!” is a short online course AccessArt has created in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. It is made up of a combination of resources on AccessArt, specially re-edited so that they are suitable for all ages and all abilities to use at home. No special materials are required and it is completely free to take part. Parents may wish to help facilitate the project for very young children. The ideas below can be spread out over a number of days or weeks, and the skills and experience learnt will stand pupils in good stead for when they return to school. The activities are also suitable for parents and teachers to undertake themselves!
Update: There will be no learning set over the Easter period, however, we will be uploading 'Daily Hellos' on the below dates.
Monday 30th March
Friday 3rd April
Monday 6th April
Thursday 9th April
Come and say hello to your class teacher!
TTRS as of last night!
27.03.20 - Dance
This is the last part of our breakdancing learning. I have put a link below to a BBC Teach website, where you can learn some street dance. Breakdancing, hip hop and street dancing all use pretty much the same moves. Watch the video and have a go. It is really tricky, so I thought this would be good to keep going back to over the Easter holidays. You can then add these moves to your dance and perform a breakdancing battle with others in your family (if you want to). I would love to see some videos or pictures of you having a go at this. Please email them to me at email@example.com
Click on Lesson 5 and investigate how to represent a fraction as a decimal e.g. ½ = 0.5 (0.5 is halfway between 0 and 1). If 1/10 = 0.1, what else can you find? 2/10 must be the same as 0.2. Watch the video and have a go at the worksheet. Any questions, please contact your teacher. Have fun and have a lovely Easter!
27.03.20 – Robins Daily Hello!Come and say hello to Mrs. Clohessy – Brown. Today we’ll be sharing even more incredible learning, some more jokes and another challenge. Come and say hello! JOKES!

Because every play has a cast.

PE Challenge in Partnership with the Total 14 Football Academy!
Craig from Total 14 has today set an online challenge to his Academy players which includes White Rock children as he comes in to provide us with our football coaching.
There are 20 football teams that Craig has described only by using emojis. He has not given us the answers yet - so between us do you reckon that we can crack the 20 and send them to Craig before anybody else can?
To help you out, I reckon 14 is New York Red Bulls...
Chat to family, FaceTime your friends and see how many you can get.
Email me your ideas firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feel free to design any others and send them to me and I'll see if I can guess them!
Good Luck from Mr Leaman!
