Overview of the week

                      Literacy 5.3.21

Today we would like you to pretend to be Sophie (from The BFG) for the final time. We would like you to think about how Sophie felt when she went to ask the Queen for help to finally get rid of the mean giants. You might want to re-watch the last two film clips that I put on here on Monday for ideas.

 

                      Numeracy 5.3.21

Today we would like you to practise your arithmetic skills. Think carefully how to solve each question. Use jottings to help you if you need to.

                      Science 5.3.21

We are going to learn about keeping our bodies safe. One important thing we can do to keep ourselves fit and healthy is to wash our hands well and regularly. This is something we have talked about a lot in class since Covid-19 has started to impact us all. Today we are going to start an experiment about the importance of washing our hands. For this experiment you will need two slices of bread and two clear sandwich bags.

Watch the video below and follow the instructions.

Overview of the week

Next week!

Next week we will be using The BFG in our Literacy learning. If you have the book you might want to read it or alternatively you might want to watch the Disney film. (It is a PG rating so you will need permission from your parents).

Don't worry if you aren't able to as I will use short clips from the film which will help you to complete your learning even if you haven't read the book or watched the film.

 

        **Live Literacy 11:30am**  26.2.21

In our final live lesson of the week we will write the endings to our stories. Check out the different ideas for story endings here.

Today we are going to carry on with our numeracy learning about shapes. Watch the video below and complete today's sheet. 

Count vertices on 2D shapes

Science

25.2.21

 In today’s science we are thinking about what we can do to help keep ourselves healthy. Today we are going to focus on exercise. Talk to your grown up about what you think exercise is and why our bodies need it.

Today we are going to check how our bodies change when we are doing exercise. To do this we are going to check our heart rate before and after we do exercise. You can find your heart rate by placing two fingers on your wrist or neck. The picture below shows you where you should be able to feel your heartbeat. Your adult may need to help you if you cannot find yours.

Once you know where to find your heartbeat we are going to find out how many times your heart beats per minute. To do this you will need a clock or timer. Time for one minute and count out loud the number of beats you feel. Keep counting up until the timer gets to one minute. Write down the number of times that your heart beat in one minute.

Now we are going to exercise for one minute. You can either do start jumps or try running on the spot. Make sure you go as fast as you can! After one minute you can stop exercising, you need to check your heart rate again straight away. Write down how many times your heart beat in a minute using a timer like you did earlier.

What impact has exercising had on your heart? Why do you think this has happened?

When we exercise our muscles need more nutrients and oxygen. Oxygen is delivered around the body by blood so when it needs more oxygen it means blood has to be pumped through the body quicker. This means our heart works faster because it needs to pump more blood to the muscles. When muscles are used that get bigger and stronger (this includes our hearts!) which makes us healthier. The more we exercise the more we are able to do because our muscles are stronger.

 

Telling the Time Activity Book

So far we have already looked at healthy eating and what that may look like in terms of eating well and having a balance diet.

I wonder though…….

Is that the only thing we need to do to keep healthy?

Click on the link and watch the video below.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z8yd2p3

What other ways of keeping healthy did you spot? 

 

 

Now all of these activities help to keep us physically healthy but we also need to make sure we feel emotionally healthy and have a healthy mind.

Can you think of anything that you do that makes you feel happy?

Today’s challenge:

Imagine you are Carla. Fill in lots of healthy activities that you think Carla could do in her day to help her have a healthy lifestyle.

Here's the document if you want to print it.

Draw it in your jotter if not.

Overview of the Week

Literacy

1.2.21

In Literacy this week we are going to be learning how to write a set of instructions. Today we are going to investigate two sets of instructions and see if we can spot their special features.

 

In your pack you will find sets of instructions for making a sandwich and making animal finger puppets. You don’t need to actually make these things (although of course you can if you want!). We would like you to look at the checklist (stapled to the instructions) and see if you can spot the special features on them.

 

 

Here is an example…

 

Numeracy

1.2.21

We are starting a brand new unit of numeracy learning today! Watch the lesson on the video below to learn all about tally charts. All the activities are on the video today, there isn’t a challenge sheet to complete.

Science

1.2.21

What do humans need to stay healthy?

Watch the video below to find out some information about what humans need to help keep themselves healthy.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z9yycdm/articles/zxvkd2p

 

Today we are going to focus on what foods humans need to keep us healthy. We are going to use the internet as a source for our information. When we use information gathered by other people this is called a secondary source. Today we are going to use secondary sources to learn about the different food groups that humans need as part of their healthy diet.

The 5 main food groups are:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Protein
  • Fats
  • Fruit and Vegetables
  • Sugar

 

 

I would like you to research each of the different food groups and find out…

  • What types of food are in each group?
  • How much of each food group we should eat or drink?
  • What does it do to our bodies?

 

Below are some interesting websites that might help you learn about some of the groups. You will also find some information on Espresso. As well as using these sources you can search on the internet and find the information you need that way as well.

Spellings

1.2.21

Today I would like you to complete your spelling challenge with last weeks words. Can you have a go at writing each spelling and send me a photo so I can see how well you have learnt last weeks spellings. Good luck!

Last weeks spellings were dancedbakedsmiledclappedskippeddroppedjumped asked.

 

 

The new spellings for this week are below. 

 

Overview for the week

Below you will find an overview of the week. We thought that you might find it helpful to see how the week will look in advance. We will continue to update this page every day with details of each task, along with the relevant links/videos.

(Some children already have a slightly different timetable in their pack, continue to follow that one if that's the case).

Please note these are only suggested timings for each session. We have based this on the amount of time we would spend on these sessions if the children were in school. Please only use this as a guide. We appreciate that many of you are trying to work from home as well as teach siblings so know that this may be difficult to achieve.

 

          Literacy 29.1.21 LIVE LESSON at 11:30am

Thank you to everyone who has been able to join our literacy sessions this week. If you have missed any of the sessions you can find the slides from each session below. We will be doing more live sessions next week so please feel free to join in with them even if you haven’t been able to join our sessions from this week.

 

Today we are going to be improving our writing from yesterday. Use the success criteria below to help you go through and check your learning. Editing our work is a very important part of becoming a better writer. If you have everything on our checklist you can still improve your work by editing the descriptive words you have chosen or adding more detail about what Charlie could hear, smell and see in the chocolate factory.

Literacy 29.1.21 LIVE LESSON at 11:30am

Today we are going to edit and improve one of our diary entries. Choose one and bring it along to the lesson with a coloured pencil if possible.

As always though, if you can't make it at 11:30 I will put all the slides on the website afterwards.

                     Numeracy 29.01.21

Let’s have an arithmetic challenge today. Remember to try and solve the problems quickly and accurately using a strategy you have been learning in class/or from the home learning videos.

Think about what you need to do to be an efficient problem solver. Can you explain how you found the answer to an adult?

I wonder is there another strategy you could have used which would have been more efficient?

 

                                 

                                       SPAG 29.01.21

Have a go at pages 8 and 9 in your English Activity book.

     

                   Art/Science 29.01.21

Think back to our science learning on lifecycles. Can you remember the life cycle of a butterfly?

Can you remember all the different stages in the right order?

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/zttckqt

 

Your challenge today is to use your creative skills to show the lifecycle of a butterfly. Please be as imaginative as you like and use this challenge to show off your artistic skills.

You could perhaps make a 3D model or use different materials to represent the different stages. You could draw each part and include your pencil drawing skills such as hatching and cross hatching.

 

Take a look at the examples below for inspiration.

Thank you to everyone who joined the live session. I am so sorry if you were unable to join the meeting, there seems to have been another meeting running at the same time. Don't worry though you can find the slides that I shared during the session below and I will look at the meeting schedules to try and find out what happened. I think I will now just send out a separate invitation the night before for each meeting in future.

 

Today we are going to be writing a diary entry as Veruca Salt. Can you write about how she would be feeling after she has got her golden ticket? Remember that Veruca is not like most other children. She is very selfish and ungrateful so she wasn’t satisfied when her dad had managed to get her a golden ticket, she still wanted and expected more!

 

Good luck writing today’s diary!

Odd and Even

                       Phonics 26.1.21

Yesterday we started learning that the digraph /ea/ can make and /ee/ sound like in leaf and it can also make the /e/ sound like in bread. Today we are going to carry on with our learning about this alternative pronunciation.

 

Read the text called 'An Autumn Afternoon' from your pack.

Look out for the /ea/ digraph.

Try both pronunciations and decide which one sounds right.

If you have crayons you can colour each of the pronunciations a different colour. If you don't have any crayons available don't worry you can write the words in two groups in your work jotters.

Play Snakes & Ladders (in your pack, dated 25.1.21) to practise reading words with both these pronunciations. Remember to try both pronunciations if you are not sure of the word, then decide which one sounds correct.

R.E

25.1.21

 

Today we are going to be learning about two stories from the Bible. After you have read the stories I want you to think about the questions you could ask about each story. Try and think about what the story is trying to teach us.

Spellings 25.1.21

 

Test yourselves on last weeks spellings and let me know how you have got on.

race, ice, city, fancy, dance, gem, giant, magic, giraffe, energy.

This weeks spellings are below. This weeks spellings are words that end with the suffix -ed. If you aren't sure try and remember the rules for adding the suffix -ed that we learnt about in SPaG last week.

  Literacy 22.01.21       

 

So now you have planned your presentation, today is your chance to persuade Willy Wonka to want to create your sweet and give you the job of new inventor.

                                   
 
   

 

                        

 

Take some time to read back through your plan from yesterday.

I wonder can you take your plan and use this to help you either write a letter to Willy Wonka to present your sweet or record a video?

Remember your video or letter must be persuasive and create a feeling of excitement about your product.

If you are recording a video about your sweet don’t forget to speak clearly and use good eye contact. You could add in some actions to make your video more exciting and persuasive.

If you are writing a letter think about how you present your writing, is it eye catching and interesting to read? Don’t forget your non negotiables!

Good Luck.

I’m sure Willy Wonka will enjoy reading your letters and watching your videos.

 

Numeracy

22.1.21

Today’s lesson is a little different! There isn’t a challenge sheet today! All the activities are on the video below. The video will help you to see the difference between sharing and grouping. You may want to use counters/small objects/coins/Lego to help you.

                      SPaG  21.1.21 

Thank you for joining our live lesson. Here is the rule card that you may need to change the base words into past tense words using the -ed suffix.

 

                          

 

    

  Literacy 21.01.21      

 

So far this week we have designed our sweet, given it a name and function and thought about its packaging. Today we need to plan a presentation which will persuade Willy Wonka that our sweet is the next greatest invention.

 

Do you know what we mean by persuade?

 

Can you think of any words to describe a cake which would persuade me to want to eat it?

 

How about scrumptious, delicious, mouth-watering?

 

To help us plan a punchy presentation which will wow Mr. Willy Wonka into hiring you as his new inventor we need to continue to think about using some of the powerful nouns, verbs and adjectives from earlier in the week.

What persuasive, eye catching words can you think of which will make your sweet sound amazing?

See if you can complete the table below.

 

 
   

 

Now you have completed the table practise saying your presentation out loud, use the information you have recorded to persuade someone to try your sweet.

 

 

Design & Technology

21.1.21

In school we had started some learning about different types of mechanisms. So far we had learnt how to create a sliding mechanism and a pivot mechanism. We created moving pictures linked the story ‘The Enormous Crocodile’.

         

We made a slit in the background for the crocodile to slide along and used a split pin so that the crocodile’s mouth could open.

 

Your challenge is to create your own moving picture using a sliding mechanism.

(If you have a split pin you may be able to have a go at a pivot mechanism but please don’t worry as we know most people won’t have split pins at home!)

 

Your picture can be of anything you like. If you don’t have a printer at home you can draw your own background and character.

Here are a few pictures for ideas.

 

                  Numeracy  21.1.21

Today in numeracy you are going to continue your learning about grouping. Please watch the lesson on the video and then complete the challenge sheet.

Make equal groups - grouping

                                    Literacy 20.01.21

 

                               

 

How did you get on yesterday inventing your sweet? I’m sure Willy Wonka will be very impressed with your imaginative ideas so far.

 

Now you have designed an amazing sweet we need to think more about it’s function.

Why is your sweet so special?

 

Our first challenge is to think about words which will help to describe our sweet and it’s function. We could then combine the most exciting words to make a name for our sweet. Remember a good product has to have a catchy name. Let’s look at the example below.  Can you help me sort these words into the correct column and then add some extra words of your own?

 

Now we have a name, function and descriptive vocabulary for our sweet you are ready for the next challenge.

Can you design packaging for your sweet?

What do you think we will need to think about when designing our packaging?

 

Is it eye-catching?                                                                                                                                                

Does it clearly show the name of your product?                                                                                             

Is it practical?                                                                                                                                                  

What material is your packaging going to be made out of?

 

Can you sketch a design in your jotters, don’t forget to label it and make it bright and colourful?

Geography

20.1.21

We would like this project to continue for 2 geography sessions, today and next Wednesday so please don’t feel that you need to complete it all today.

Have you heard of the story James and the Giant Peach? As part of the story the main character James goes on an adventure and ends up in New York City.

 
   

 

                   

Have you heard of New York City before?

Do you know which country it is in?

 

As part of our learning we are going to need to use our research skills and find out some facts about New York. You can do your own fact finding and/or click on the link below for more information about the country and city.

 

You can click on each tab at the top to find out about the weather, people, landmarks and food.

 

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/modules/t1_passport/unitedstates/factfile_intro.html

 

New York City is a very busy city I wonder how is it similar or different to a city like London in the UK?

 

Can you recall some facts about London and think about what this city in the UK is like?  

 

                     

 

Did you know we can click on a live webcam and see exactly what is happening in New York and London right now?

Today we are going to continue our learning on division. Hopefully you will have your new packs with you now! So first of all before we start today’s learning can you make sure you have watched the video from yesterday and completed the 3 challenge sheets.

 

Today's lesson builds on the learning from yesterday and introduces the division symbol. Can you watch the 2nd video make equal groups and complete the challenge sheets?

 

 

Make equal groups - sharing

                     Literacy 19.01.21

Today we are going to be taking a closer look at Willy Wonka and find out exactly why he was the greatest chocolate inventor in the world.

                             

 

 

Read aloud extract 1 – Mr Willy Wonka’s Factory chapter 2 pg 12/13.

 

 

 

First challenge can you make a list of all his inventions so far?

 

Now read aloud extract 2 – The inventing room chapter 19 pg 106

Challenge 2- Imagine you are applying for a job as a sweet inventor in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.  You will have to be very imaginative to come up with a sweet that is interesting enough for Mr. Wonka!

 

 

                             

 

Firstly, you need to decide upon the sweet you want to invent. Your sweet will need to have a special feature just like one of Willy Wonka’s amazing sweets. 

Will your sweet contain a surprise or perform a function?

For example, will your sweet make people more confident, turn bullies’ tongues black or will it be a sweet to make people listen when others are talking.

Once you have come up with your idea can you draw and label your design in your jotter. Don’t forget to write a few sentences about your sweet’s surprise or function.

                                       Phonics  19.1.21

Yesterday we started learning that the grapheme /i/ can make and /i/ sound like in bin and it can also make the /igh/ sound like in findToday we are going to carry on with our learning about this alternative pronunciation.

 

If you have your pack already you will find a page with a piece of writing called 'Glint of a Fish' inside. Read the page and try and spot all the words containing the grapheme /i/. Work out if you think that the /i/ in the words is making the /i/ sound like in bin or the /igh/ sound like in find. Can you sort the different words?

If you have crayons you can colour each of the sounds a different colour. If you don't have any crayons available don't worry you can write the words in two groups in your work jotters.

 

If you haven't got your pack yet then just have a go at reading the sentences on the picture below. Remember to try both pronunciations if you are not sure of the word, then decide which one sounds correct.

Literacy

Monday 18th January

 

This week in Literacy we are going to be using Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl to help us. Today we would like you to think about the character 'Charlie'.

 

Can you describe what he is like?

You will be good at this as we have had a few opportunities to describe characters recently! You can either draw Charlie and describe him using key words around the outside or you can write your ideas in sentences. (Look back at the videos Mrs Cliff did for the Pelly last week if you're not sure).

We have added the first chapter here for you to read (or ask your grown up to read it for you). This chapter gives you lots of information about Charlie. If you have watched the film you may also have some other ideas.

    

                     Numeracy 18.1.21

For the next couple of weeks we are going to learn about division.

Today's challenge sheet (and the sheets for the next two weeks) are in your new pack. Due to the snow last week we are aware you won't all have collected these yet so if you are only able to watch the video lesson today that is ok! Hopefully you will all have your packs by Tuesday.

                       Science  18.1.21

                 

 

Today’s science learning is all about lifecycles. What do we mean by a lifecycle? Think about a baby and an adult what is different about them and what is the same? Let’s think about our own lifecycle. What can you do now that you couldn’t do as a baby? What can an adult do that you can’t do yet?      

 

Take a look at the video below and think about these questions 

  • What is different about the dancers?
  • How do the movements change?
  • What can older dancers do that younger dancers cannot?
  • How have their bodies changed?

 

https://explorify.wellcome.ac.uk/en/activities/whats-going-on/born-to-dance

 

Challenge 2 take a look at the video below to learn more about lifecycles. I wonder can you explain how an animal changes throughout its lifecycle and complete the quiz?

Today we are learning that the grapheme /i/ can make and /i/ sound like in bin and it can also make the /i/ sound like in find.

If you have your pack already you will find a snakes and ladders game inside that you can play to practise saying the different pronunciations. If you haven't got your pack yet then just have a go at reading the words on the picture below. Remember to try both pronunciations if you are not sure of the word, then decide which one sounds correct.

Your final literacy challenge for this week will need you to be creative! In the story ‘The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me’ two of the characters had magical features. The Giraffe’s neck and the Pelly’s beak.

Your challenge today is to invent your own magical character! You can pick a real animal and decide how it could become magical or you can invent a brand new magical creature. We would like you to draw your character and label all of its magical features.

                                  15.01.21 Numeracy

 

Like yesterday’s numeracy session today’s session is going to be in two parts. Firstly we are going to look at the 5 times table and then in the second part we are going to look at the 10 times table. After the first video about the 5 times table I want you to answer the sheets called ‘The 5 times table’ and after the second video you can move on to the sheet called ‘The 10 times table’.

Today we are going to be doing some more multiplication learning. Last week we looked at repeated addition, this week we are going to start looking at the X symbol and how we use it in number sentences.

It is important to watch the lesson on the video below. Have a piece of paper ready so that you can have a go at the challenges on the video. Remember to pause it to give yourself enough time. If you have your own wipe off board at home then you could use this instead (just like we would in school!)

Today we are going to start some learning around a different Roald Dahl book. It is called The Giraffe and the Pelly and me.

If you have this book at home you can read this but if not can you please listen to the audio book here. Today can you listen up to 5 minutes and 35 seconds please?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wL3NuLOsJHs&safe=active

 

Now that you have heard the first part of the book we would like you to use your imagination.

What do you think ‘The Grubber’ would have looked like when it was a lovely old sweet shop? Draw a picture.

There are a few clues at the beginning of the story to help you but don’t forget, there is no right or wrong answer!

For your science learning today we are going to use 'Espresso'. You will need the log in information that was sent to you via the school app on Friday. Go to this website https://www.discoveryeducation.co.uk/ and enter the username and password.

 

Once logged in go to the search bar and type in 'living, dead, never alive'.

 

We are going to use the first two items that appear on the list.

 

Please read the book first. It looks like this...

 

Then have a go at the sorting activity which looks like this...

 

You should now know how to distinguish between things that are alive, dead or have never lived. Can you think of some other things that you could add to each column?

Today we would like to recap some learning that we did just before Christmas. Can you remember the difference between a statement, a question, a command and an exclamation? These are the four different types of sentences that we use in Year 2. 

 

A statement - tells you something e.g. I have a red car.

A question - asks something e.g. Do you have a car?

A command - gives an order (a bossy sentence) e.g. Wash your car.

An exclamative sentence or exclamation - starts with 'What' or 'How' and ends with an exclamation mark! E.g. What a lovely car you have!

 

This link will take you to a video to remind you further if you are a little unsure. Scroll down to the second video with Mr Firth.

The Enormous Crocodile

Today we would like you to think about The Enormous Crocodile's personality. Is he a kind or mean character? How do you know? It is important to use evidence from the story. How many different ways can you describe his personality. You might want to use a thesaurus to find adventurous words! Record your ideas (just in key words) on a piece of paper. See the example below.

 

Well done to those of you that had a go at our home learning today. I really enjoyed reading your writing (Mr Hill & Mrs Cliff shared it with me). The packs are all made now and ready for you to collect tomorrow (Wednesday). We will post instructions on here every morning so that you know which activities we would like you to do each day. We understand that it can be tricky learning from home but please try your very best. I can't wait to see some more photos of your learning!

Good Morning Everyone!

This week Mrs Cliff & Mr Hill will be organising all your home learning (Mrs Bryan is teaching our Key Worker children this week). We will send you our email addresses via the app so that you can send us your lovely learning to have a look at and mark for you! If you are in Mrs Bryan's class we will make sure that she sees your learning but we will mark it and give you feedback whilst she's busy teaching.

We will upload today's challenges shortly. We look forward to seeing how you get on.

 

We are still organising how to make sure everyone has all the equipment/resources needed. We will hopefully have finalised plans by the end of the day today and will of course let you know.

Literacy 5.1.21

Yesterday in class you read/watched The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl. (There are videos on YouTube if you need to remind yourself of the story). 

Today we would like you to describe the Enormous Crocodile's appearance (what he looks like). Can you use adjectives and similes? I wonder if you can start every sentence in a different way too as this will help to make your writing interesting to read.

 

E.g. If you look closely you might notice that the Enormous Crocodile has hundreds of sharp, white teeth in his mouth. His eyes are large and white like golf balls.

 

If you haven't got any paper at the moment don't worry. We are still finalising plans for organising getting packs to you. More information will follow today.

Literacy- let's start with an exciting live lesson. The learning today is  based on a story called The Tale of a Toothbrush.

 

                                ​​​​​​

 

You will also be practising how to:

  • write questions using a sentence starter and question mark
  •  explore alliteration in the style of the story
  • sort objects made from different materials
  • understand that objects can be recycled and reused
  •  investigate how we can help protect the environment.

Phonics - Can you remember our learning from earlier in the week on alternative pronunciation?

Great, today we're going to look at the grapheme: 

                                        

 

   like in hot                  socks  

 

                   

                    padlock                         

 

But did you know it can also make a long /o/ phoneme like in

                             

 hotel                    mobile                

 

Have a go at the snakes and ladders game and use your blending skills well to see which pronunciation you need to use. 

If the word makes /o/ like in hot underline it in red.

If the word makes /o/ like in hotel underline it in green.

 

Can you remember our success criteria for blending words with an alternative pronunciation? 

 

  • Say it with a ............
  • Say it with a ............
  • which one sounds correct?

 

SPAG-                     

Can you remember the learning we did in class on using apostrophes to show belonging? 

There are two reasons we use apostrophes can you remember them? 

  • To show a contraction for example:

 

         I will = I'll

     

      Do not = Don't 

     

      I am = I'm

 

  • We also show apostrophes to show that something belongs to someone for example:

​​​​​​​

           Mrs Bryan has a red pen = Mrs Bryan's red pen

           

           The man has a dog = The man's dog

Hi there class 5, let's get started with a reading challenge.

                                   

This learning is all about reading skills and using 'because' to justify our opinion about what we have read. 

 

When you give an opinion about a text, you should explain why you think that by referring back to the words the author used.

 

The text is called Attack of the Demon Dinner Ladies by Pamela Butchart.

Numeracy- Money continued.   

Today our learning is going to focus using a mixture of coins and notes. 

You will need to recognise the different coins and notes and understand their value. 

 

I have also included an extra challenge for children who would like to take their learning to a deeper level. Click on the PDF document to open up all of the money activities.

Watch the video closely and complete the three activities.

                                  

Today I would like you to design a Christmas bookmark.

Think about these questions before you start your design:

 

What shape is it going to be?

What will it be made out of?

What will you use to decorate it?

How will you make it different to any other book mark?

Could you add on a message to help children want to read? 

 

Here are some ideas of Christmas bookmarks to get you thinking:

                             

 

 

Draw and label your design in your learning jotter.

 

Over the next few days you might want to have a go at making your Christmas bookmark.

I’m really looking forward to seeing your creations once they are finished.

09.12.20                    

Literacy- So this will be our final day of story writing, yesterday you planned your 2nd problem so today we need to plan and write a solution and then think about our story ending. 

                 

 

Remember we are still setting ourselves a target to improve our solution from last time and don't forget you can use the story writing tool boxes to help you with this!

I'm looking forward to hearing how your story ends. 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                     

Numeracy- Today we are going to continue our learning on money.

We will be focusing on:

  • counting money,
  • comparing amounts 

When counting the coins look closely at what the coins are, think carefully what you need to count in to find the answer quickly. 

See if you can complete the two activities below. You can record your answers in your jotters or print them off if you can.

Look carefully at the coins on this sheet, they are not all the same.

 

  

Phonics - Can you remember our learning from before in class on alternative pronunciation?

Great, today we're going to look at the digraph: 

                                        

 

   like in pie                                fried

 

              bow-tie                   

 

But did you know it can also make an /ee/ phoneme like in

                             

 field?                

 

Have a go at the roll and read board and use your blending skills well to see which pronunciation you need to use. 

If the word makes /ie/ like in tie underline it in red.

If the word makes /ie/ like in field underline it in green.

 

Can you remember our success criteria for blending words with an alternative pronunciation? 

 

  • Say it with a ............
  • Say it with a ............
  • which one sounds correct?

 

          

Finally let's finish the day with some festive artwork. 

 

                          

 

The artist Rob Biddulph is going to show us how to draw a fun Christmas character step by step.

Maybe once you have your character and because we are now such fantastic story writers you might want to write a Christmas story to go with your character?

Good morning Class 5 welcome to another day of home learning challenges. Today let's start with Literacy. 

Thank you so much for all your lovely learning, it's hard to write a story but you are all doing a fantastic job. 

So now we need to plan and write about our second problem but this time showing improvement from our last problem.

Take a moment to read back through your story. 

Set yourself a target - It might be to:

  •  use more story telling language? 
  • Add in some adverbs? For example bravely or carelessly 
  • handwriting
  • Use vocabulary that makes the story sound even more exciting

 

Don't forget to use the story writing tool box too, this might help you to think about other ways to improve your problem. 

 

       

 

 

 

 

 

SPAG- Today I would like you to continue your learning on sentence types.           

Can you remember what the four types of sentences are? 

Can you give an example of each type? 

Please can you complete pages 16 and 17 in your English activity books. 

Then challenge yourself further by clicking on the link and completing the activities.

07.12.20 Literacy            

As mentioned above we are going to continue with our stories but our focus this week is to set ourselves a target to improve our writing from last week. 

Take a moment to read back through your story so far. 

Use the story writing tool box to see if you can spot these things in your writing and if not use them to help you set a target.

               

 

Remember every great writer reflects on their learning and is always thinking about how they can make their writing even better. 

         

Once your target is set, start to think about your second location. 

How are you going to describe it? 

What is your target? 

How are you going to start your piece of writing? Can you use a different sentence opener? 

Now see if you can write up where your characters go next. 

Don't forget to email me your learning. I am looking forward to seeing how you have improved your writing from last week. 

 

Guided Reading- Continuing with our story writing skills, I would like you to login into active learn and choose a story to read. While you are reading I wonder if you can spot and discuss with your grown ups

  • The main characters- How does the author describe them? 
  • The setting
  • A problem in  the story
  • The solution.

 

                                         

Numeracy- This week our learning is going to be all about money. 

                              

We are going to be practising a number of skills including: 

  • Recognising and understanding the value of coins and notes
  • counting money
  • Solving adding and subtracting problems involving money.
  • giving change.

 

Let's start by watching these short videos explaining what exactly

Literacy- Class 5 I am so please with how our stories are developing, you are all doing a fantastic job.

 

So yesterday we planned our problem but as you well know every problem has to have a solution.      

Ok when planning a solution it is really important that your solution flows on and matches your problem. 

Take a moment to read back through your story, remind yourself of your problem. 

Now think of a solution for example if you had this problem:

                                                       

 

Possible solutions might be: Mouse furiously nibbled around the 

                                            hole to make it bigger?

 

                  or Mouse scuttled away to find a kind friend to help?

Try to think of a few solutions and then choose your favourite. 

Now let's have a go at writing up our solutions. 

 

I wonder what story telling language might you use? 

 

How about:  Luckily mouse had a great idea. He furiously nibbled around the hole and amazingly elephant very slowly started to budge. 

 

Can you think of any other story telling language which would suggest a solution? Good luck I'll look forward to seeing your stories.

 

 

 

 

Numeracy-                  

Today we are going to use our reasoning skills. This means we are going to use everything we know about subtraction to solve problems but to achieve your learning, you have to give a reason for your answer.

 

Can you remember the three strategies we can use to solve a subtraction problem? 

 

To warm up can you complete pages 10 and 11 in your Maths books please.                                  

Don't forget a good mathematician  always checks their learning.

 

Now take a look at these problems- you'll need to decide if the answer is true or false and give a reason for how you know.

 

              

 

   

Over the next few days I would like you to design a Christmas decoration.

Think about these questions before you start your design..

 

What shape is it going to be?

What material is it going to be made out of and why?

How you will join the pieces together?

What will you use to decorate it and why?

 

Here are some ideas of decorations to get you started with some ideas.

           

Draw and label your design in your learning jotter.

 

 

I can’t wait to see your designs!

 

Over the weekend you might want to have a go at making your Christmas decoration.

I’m really looking forward to seeing your creations once they are finished.

Hi Class 5 welcome to day 4 of home learning. You are all doing a fantastic job!

Literacy- Ok so today we are going to continue with our story by planning a problem.        

Watch the clip below to find out more about planning a problem and see some examples.

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxonnmacOck

Right so the first thing I want you to do is read back through your story. Remind yourself of who the characters are and your setting. 

Remember your story has to flow so don't change your characters.

In your jotters can you think about and record a number of different problems that might happen. You could even draw some pictures.

                                     

Once you have a few ideas I would like you to choose your favourite one and add in some story telling language. 

Can you remember the story telling language we would use to suggest there was a problem? 

How about: All of a sudden......

                  Just then.....

                  Suddenly......

Now see if you can practise writing up your problem.

 

 

                                      

                  (Personal Social Health and Citizenship Education)

Herringthorpe Infant School is completing a range of creative challenges leading up to Christmas. Throughout the week I will add some of the challenges that school will be participating in so that you can still take part!

 

Let’s take a look at one of the challenges.

This challenge is called..

‘Hearts for Homes’

 

 

Here is a little information about the challenge:

                                 

 

                                  

SPAG - Finally Do you remember our learning recently on past tense? 

Today I would like you to build on your learning and explore past tense, present tense and future tense.

Check out the link for more information and see if you can complete the activities afterwards.

  

       https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4fq96f

 

                              

 

 

02.12.20

Hi there Class 5 are you ready for today's learning? 

                              

Let's start with Literacy and see if we can add some more to our stories. 

So we have chosen our characters, locations and already thought about our settings.

I wonder now if we can put all of our ideas together now and write the beginning part of our story? 

Take a look at my example and see if you can spot what makes a good story.

 

Long ago in a small cosy mouse hole there lived a tiny grey mouse with long wiry whiskers like pipe cleaners. He longed to travel the world but he was just too small. Early one morning a huge hefty elephant came along. He had heard about the tiny mouse's dreams and kindly offered to help. So as the bright sun rose in the sky they set off on their adventure. First they went into the dark, leafy jungle. It was a little bit creepy and tiny mouse felt a little bit scared. " Don't worry said elephant I will protect you".

 

Now it's your turn here is your success criteria to help you be successful in your learning. 

 

  • remember your non-negotiables
  • remember to use adventurous adjectives to describe your setting and characters. 
  • Add in some feelings and thoughts from your characters. 
  • beautiful handwriting please.
  • Think about story telling language

 

Don't forget you can send me your learning, I'll look forward to reading your beginning parts of your story.  

 

Numeracy- today we are going to continue our learning on subtraction.                

How did you get on yesterday using both of the strategies? 

Today I have a new strategy for us to think about. 

Take a look at number problem below:

 

                                    45 - 11 = 

What do you notice about this problem? 

What can you spot? 

That's right 11 is a near 10. 

Today we are going to use this strategy to solve subtraction problems efficiently. 

Watch the clip below to find out more. 

 

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zvb4wmn

 

Ok your turn now. Have a try at solving the subtraction problems below using your knowledge of near 10's. This strategy will help you become an efficient learner. 

                                      

 

You can continue to practise your subtraction skills using all three strategies by clicking on the link below. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrnfvk7

 

Guided Reading- Please can you log onto active learn and choose a book to read independently. After you have read your book I would like you to talk to a grown up about what you have read. 

  • What's the story about? 
  • Who are the main characters? 
  • What happened in the beginning of the story? 
  • How did the story end? 
  • Which was your favourite part of the story? 
  • If you were able to change the end of the story what would happen? 

                                                

To support our writing I would also like you to take a look at this link and complete the activities. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zfqsm39

This learning will help you to explore how writers create interesting description. 

                                                          

 

 

 

01.12.20 Good morning Class 5 

Numeracy - this week we are going to be be learning about subtracting a two digit number from a two digit number.

Think back to our learning in class- What different strategies could you use? 

Let's start by thinking about physically subtracting a number. 

What do I need to do first? 

  • First represent the larger number using equipment.
  • Then subtract the units/ones.
  • Subtract the tens.
  • Count how many you have left.
  • Check your answer.

Have a try solving these problems using equipment.

                         

Now let's take a look at another strategy to solve subtraction problems. We can use jottings. 

Watch the video carefully and think about all the steps you need to do to solve the problem successfully.

 

Subtracting a two digit number from a two digit number using jottings

Still image for this video

Now have a try at solving these problems using jottings as your key strategy.

                      

Take your learning further by generating your own subtraction problems. You can record all of your answers in your jotters.

Literacy- How did you get on yesterday creating your new characters?

Today we're going to think about our setting for our story.

What do I mean by setting?                 

                     

Take a look at this clip to find out. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BVOIyUnk6s&safe=active

 

Ok so now you know what a setting is we need to think about creating our setting. Now in the story Snail visits several different settings and locations but for our story I would like you to just decide on two different locations. 

 

                        

Once you have chosen your two locations can you think about some adventurous adjectives to describe your settings.  Once you are happy choose your favourite adjectives and write them into sentences and add them to your introduction. 

 

PSHE/History- Listen to the story 'Look up'

 

                                 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-vi0ZmqBhQ

 

 

Task 1: Who was the person that inspired Rocket? 

Can you write down her name and research 5 facts about her?

 

Task 2: Think about a dream of your own. It might be something that you want to achieve, a skill you would like to learn or a job you would like when you grow up.

 

Can you draw a picture of your dream? Tell me about why this means so much to you and who inspired you.

If you manage to complete all those learning challenges and you would like something extra, choose an activity off the 2 week learning plan.  You can record all your learning in your jotter.

 

   

 

   

Monday 30.11.20

Good morning Class 5. I'm afraid we need to begin home learning again but don't worry I have lots of exciting learning and challenges for you over the next few weeks. 

Let's start with a spelling challenge. 

Take a look at these tricky words: 

                                          wild

                                          climb

                                          only

                                          most

                                          both

                                          every

                                          everybody

                                          even

Can you use one of our strategies for learning these spellings

e.g. look, cover, write, check

Now once you can spell these words correctly see if you can apply your learning by writing a short piece of work using these words. 

 

 

Literacy

This week we are going to continue our learning using the text The Snail and the Whale. 

Can you remember what happens in the story?

      

 

       

Who are the main characters? 

I wonder if we can use what we know from this story to help us re-write our own version of the story? 

Let's think about story writing for a moment. Do you know what a good story needs?

That's right an introduction, characters, setting, problem and solution. 

Today let's just think about our introduction and our characters. 

Just like the Whale and the snail I would like you to come up with 2 new characters. A big animal and a small animal. 

How would you describe your characters? Maybe you can draw your characters and label them with adventurous adjectives in your jotters. 

Excellent now I'd like you to choose your favourite adjectives and write a short piece of writing to introduce your characters. 

 

 

Numeracy

Let's have an arithmetic challenge, remember to try and solve the problems quickly and accurately using a strategy you have been learning in class.

Think about what you need to do to be an efficient problem solver, can you explain how you found the answer to a grown up? 

 

I wonder is there another strategy you could have used which would have been more efficient? 

                           

You can record your learning in your jotters. 

 

Guided Reading- Can you please log on to Active Learn and practice your reading skills.

Today I would like you to think about:

  • reading with fluency 
  • answering questions using evidence from the text.
  • Can you make a prediction during your read about what you think may happen before you turn the page. Don't forget to base your prediction and what you have already read.

 

                                  

Under Bethlehem's Star so Bright

These are the two songs that we will be learning for our Christmas Nativity. We will practise in class next week and then you will be able to practise at home if you would like to. Don't worry if you don't know the words yet!

Starry Night.wma

19.11.20- This is your last day of home learning. I am looking forward to seeing you all back in class tomorrow. 

Literacy- In preparation for our learning in class I would like you to watch the short animated film of The Snail and the Whale. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000cslw/the-snail-and-the-whale

                                             

While watching the film can you think about the characters and the sequence of events.

Who are the main characters? 

What are they like and can you describe their physical and personal features? 

What happens in the beginning of the story? 

What happens during the story? 

How do the characters feel during the different events? 

How does the story end?

 

Numeracy- Can you please complete pages 2, 3, 4 and 5 in your telling the time books. This learning is all about o'clock and half past. Don't forget to complete the activities carefully and check your answers.

Guided Reading- Can you please log on to Active Learn and practice your reading skills.

Today I would like you to think about:

  • reading with fluency 
  • answering questions using evidence from the text.

                                        

Finally do you remember our learning from class on contractions?

Today take a look at the link below which will remind us how to use  apostrophes to contract and join 2 separate words. 

Can you remember what the apostrophe shows? 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z3j4vwx

 

                          

  

 

18.11.20.

Hello Class 5, Let's take a look at today's learning. 

Literacy- I would like you to practise writing sentences, adding more information and extending them using the conjunctions /and/, /because/, /if/ and /when/.  

Click on the link below and work through the activities. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6rvbdm

 

                                

 

Practise your skills further by playing the game Karate Cats English.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zd63xyc/articles/zdp4pg8

Continue your learning on joining words by completing pages 12 and 13 in your English book.

Numeracy-  Today let's focus on balancing number sentences. Watch this episode of Numberblocks (series 4, Balancing bridge)

 

                         

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0005y9r/numberblocks-series-4-balancing-bridge

 

Then see if you can balance these number sentences...

                                  ? + ? = 10

                                  ? + ? = 14

                                  ? + ? = 16

How many different ways can you solve these?

Guided Reading- Today we are going to practice extending our vocabulary through reading and understanding new words.

The text we are using is called The Night Box by Louise Grieg.

                 

                            

 

Listen carefully and/or read the extracts and complete the activities.

 

17.11.20

Good morning Class 5. Let's do some science investigations today. 

Do you remember our learning in integrated on floating and sinking? 

Well today we are going to build on our learning and start to think about materials which are absorbent or non absorbent. 

                      

Complete the sheet above, to show what you already know about materials that are absorbent or waterproof. 

Next I would like you to carry out your own experiment and investigate these materials. 

             

Finally I would like you to think about your findings and use them to think of a question you would like to investigate further.

                      

You can complete your work in your jotters.

 

Numeracy can you complete pages 6 and 7 from your maths booklets. Today's learning is all about counting. 

                         

Practise your counting further by clicking on the link below and working through these activities.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z8sfr82/articles/zw4g2nb

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z2xfxbk

Finally I would like you to login into Active Learn and practise your reading. 

  • Choose 1 book and read it carefully. 
  • Can you retell what happens in the book to your grown up? 
  • Try reading part of the book and then make a prediction about what you think might happen next. 
  • Can you answer some questions about what you have read using evidence from the text.

 

                                 

16.11.20

Hello Class 5, are you ready for some more learning? 

Today is the start of Anti Bullying week and the Anti Bullying company is launching a Handys challenge.

Ann Foxley Johnson has put together a special assembly which introduces the theme and explains how you can join in with the Handys challenge.   

Click on this link to find out more.  

 

https://www.youtube.com/watchv=i9kSyEnL8T0&feature=youtu.be

   

 

                          

 

By completing your very own Handy you will be able to take part in the art competition against entries from other schools and even have your work showcased in Spring.

Don't forget its odd socks day today, you can support the anti bullying campaign by wearing odd socks and joining in with Andy and the odd socks singing this years song The Kids are United.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6hR6rTHFSk 

 

For your spellings today, I would like you to take a look at all of the Year 2 common exception words. These are words that you cannot blend or segment. You just have to know them. Choose a few that you are unfamiliar with and practise writing them using our look, cover, write, check technique.  

 

                   

     

You could then apply your learning further by writing a sentence of two using those words. 

Do you remember our learning in SPAG on adverbs? 

What is an adverb? 

                       

Can you spot the adverb in this sentence? 

 

The little boy ran up the long staircase quickly.

 

Today I would like you to revisit your learning on adverbs and complete pages 10 and 11 in your English activity book. 

 

Don't forget if you are wanting a further learning challenge today you can choose something off the home learning activity sheet.

 

 

13.11.20 Good morning, how is everybody doing ? I hope you are enjoying the learning. 

Literacy - Today I have planned for you to join a live lesson 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/live-lessons/literacy-ks1-lesson-1/zcqyhcw

                                  

                                   

In this lesson you will be using the guided reading text Simon Sock by Paul Linnet and Sue Hendra. You will be thinking about and practising using capital letters, thinking about what makes a good friend and writing sentences based upon your own experiences. 

 

 

Numeracy- Can you complete pages 4 and 5 in your maths books. 

                  The focus is comparing numbers. 

                   Don't forget to think carefully about the value of each                     number. What mathematical vocabulary can you think                       of which will help you compare each number.

 

                                       

Art- Today I would like to to complete a piece of artwork to showcase all the different techniques we have been learning in class. 

Your challenge is to recreate this picture of a Van Gough inspired landscape but you can only use pencil and the techniques hatching, cross-hatching and stippling to show the different lines and patterns. 

                              

Finally I would like you to log onto active learn today and practise your reading.            

12.11.20 Hi there let's look at our literacy again.      

Today I would like us to edit and improve our learning from yesterday. 

Take a moment just to read back through your writing. 

Can you remember our success criteria, what do I need to include in a good piece of writing? 

Let's look at piece of writing I have put together. What can you spot?

 

Captain James Cook was a skilled sailor who set sail from England in 1768 with the task of exploring the Pacific Ocean.

Would you believe he was born in 1728 in Yorkshire, England?

When James was a young man he worked tirelessly as a farm boy and as he got older he decided this was not for him so he ventured off to sea.

In 1746 he became a sailor and soon worked his way up to the role of lieutenant in the Royal Navy but this was just the start of his adventures as a famous explorer.

 

Spend a moment looking at your writing now, what can you spot? 

I wonder if you could have a go at reflecting on what you have done so far and come up with a target to improve your writing even further. 

Maybe you would like to include more conjunctions or remember capital letters for proper nouns? Maybe you are going to add in some exciting adjectives?

After you have set your self a target have a go again at writing your piece of work on Captain James Cook on the next page of your jotter. Don't forget to add in your improved changes. 

 

Numeracy- Can you complete pages 2 and 3 in your maths books. 

                  The focus is writing numbers and words. 

                   Don't forget to think carefully about each number

                   and form your numbers the right way round and how

                   to write the numbers as words. 

                                     

Challenge yourself further by seeing how many numbers you can write as a word correctly.

Guided Reading- Let's look at the text Spike: The hedgehog who lost his prickles.

Today our learning will focus on making predictions about what you think will happen next based upon what you have read so far. 

Listen carefully to TV presenter Naomi Wilkinson read extracts from the book and then complete the 3 activities.

                                

11.11.20

Good morning Class 5. 

Literacy- How did you get on yesterday learning facts about this famous explorer? 

                           

Can you recall all your facts about Captain James Cook? 

Today we are going to take those facts and put them into a piece of non-fiction writing. (You can record your learning in your blue jotters).

Now let's take a moment to think about what makes a good piece of writing. 

 

Capital letters at the start of a sentence.
