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 

25.1.21

Re-read chapter one of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and then have a go at answering the questions below in your jotter. I have attached the sheet as a document incase you want to print it but writing the answers in your jotter is absolutely fine.

Numeracy

25.1.21

Today in numeracy we are going to divide by 2. Watch the video lesson below and then have a go at the challenge sheet.

Divide by 2

Phonics

25.1.21

Today we are learning that the digraph /ea/ in a word like leaf can make the sound /ee/ but in a word like bread it can make the sound /e/.

 

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.

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?

 

https://www.earthcam.com/cams/newyork/timessquare/?cam=tsrobo1

 

https://www.webcamtaxi.com/en/england/london/london-traffic.html

 

Challenge- Can you compare the two cities. Think about how they are similar and how they are different. Use your research to compare things like famous landmarks, the weather and people. You can draw and record your ideas in your jotter.

                                                         Spellings!  20.1.21

 

Please practise your spellings again today. Here are the words for this week.

 

                                  

                                 Numeracy 19.01.21

 

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? 

 

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

 

Challenge 3 Using what you know about the butterfly or frog can you draw and label their lifecycle. Don’t forget to show all the different stages and make sure you have them in the right order. How are their lifecycles similar and different to our lifecycle as a human?

 

                       Phonics  18.1.21

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.

Literacy 6.1.21

Here's a link to the video if you have forgotten the story...

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.

 

Numeracy 5.1.21

Today we would like you to play the games on 'Hit the Button'. You can of course play any of the games but can you particularly practise x2, x5 and x10?

Can you beat your score?

11.12.20 Good morning Class 5 

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.

Click on the link to join the lesson. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/live-lessons/literacy-ks1-lesson-3/zpx78hv

 

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

 

Click on the link below to watch the two videos and complete the three activities to practise your skills further.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/ztgbsk7

  

 

 

Finally how would you like to finish your home learning with a fun festive game. 

This game is called Roll a Reindeer. 

   

 

I have attached the document should you wish to join in with the game. If you don't have access to a printer you can always draw each part of the reindeer.

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.

                                                     

Click on the link below and watch

  • two videos of Manchester United footballer Jesse Lingard reading extracts from the book

  • complete the three activities

 

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

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.

 

  

 

 

 

SPAG- Today in our SPAG learning we are going to be focusing on how to use commas in a list. 

Find out why we need to use commas and how to use them correctly.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zh7bgwx

                                                   

                                         

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?

08.12.20

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.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvp6dp3

 

                        

Numeracy- Let's continue our learning around money.

 

                       

Today can you complete pages 26 and 27 in your Maths activity booklet please. 

Challenge yourself further by watching the money class clips.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zp8dmp3/resources/1

 

Can you practise counting coins and using different combinations to make different amounts?

 

 

 

 

Finally let's complete some more SPAG learning but this time I would like you to think about 'ing' verbs. 

                        

Can you remember what a verb is? 

That's right It's an action what someone or something is, has or does. 

Can you think of some examples of verbs?

Check out and complete pages 8 and 9 in your English activity books. 

Story writing continued

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

money is and how to understand the value on money. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zx3gf82

 

Now see if you can complete the activities how to work out a value using coins. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zp8dmp3/articles/zcrq2p3

 

 

 

 

Finally I'd like you to complete pages 14 and 15 in your English Activity books.     

This learning is all about different sentence types. 

Once you have completed this learning  why don't you see if if can add in some different sentence types to your story?

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.

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. 

                               

 

Take your learning further by learning about the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day. Click on the link below.

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.

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.

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.         

Capital letters for proper nouns. 

 

Non-negotiables- full stops and finger spaces.   

 

Beautiful handwriting.                                         

 

Extending sentences using a conjunction.             

 

Try to include interesting sentence openers.

 

Great time for you to have a go now. I look forward to hearing all about your facts. 

How did you get on yesterday completing page 2 in your English book? 

Today I would like you to continue your learning about nouns and take your learning further by completing page 3. 

If you have completed all of that you can take your learning even further by adding an adjective to your noun to turn it into a noun phrase. 

Click on the link below for more information and activities.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z9nh2v4

 

 

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

Think about the reading skills you will need to help you achieve your learning and read the book correctly. 

  • Spotting tricky words.
  • Using blending skills to decode unfamiliar words.
  • Keep reading the sentence back to make sure you understand what you are reading and that it makes sense. 
  • Spotting words with a split-digraph. 
  • Using inference.
  • Build on increasing fluency.
  • Answering questions about what you have read. 

10.11.20

Good morning Class 5, I hope you are all well and ready for some learning at home. 

Literacy- Today I would like you to continue your learning on the famous explorer Captain James Cook. 

                                       

Yesterday we were learning facts about the Captain and why he was famous. 

What facts can you remember? 

Watch this short video to remind yourself of some facts and even learn some new ones. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5PDnMtMqds

Can you practise saying out loud what we are going to write about later in the week by putting together a short presentation about Captain James Cook. 

Share your presentation with a grown up and see how many facts you can recall.

 

 

Spellings - Have you been practising your spelling this week? 

                  They are:   

                                             door

                                             floor

                                             poor

                                             because

                                             find

                                             kind

                                             mind

                                             behind

 

Ask an adult to test you. Let's see how many you can spell correctly. Take your learning further by seeing if you can write these words in a sentence. 

As part of your home learning some days I will be asking you to complete challenges and specific learning from the books in your home learning pack. 

Today can you complete page 2 in the English book. This learning is all about nouns. 

Can you remember what a noun is?

 

Finally if you would like an extra challenge today why don't you try the numeracy halving activity from the home learning challenges 2 activity sheet. 

You can record your learning in your blue jotters. 

Here is the link for the number blocks episode 'half time'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azVL530KCgA

 

                        

14.10.20 

Good morning Class 5 for literacy today we are going to some facts about a different sea creature- The whale. 

I wonder do you know any facts about a whale already? 

                                  

Did you know the blue whale is the biggest creature that has ever lived on Earth? They can grow to over 30 metres long and weigh 140 tonnes- that's heavier than 25 elephants or 115 giraffes.

 

Let's watch these videos and see if we can learn any more amazing facts and information. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9qlhNU1ATE

 

This clip is about the humpback whale.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joBvuEJyUd0

 

This clip shows a blue whale eating krill.

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Big+Blue+Whale&adlt=strict&view=detail&mid=CC116B1B6D058BC9B5DDCC116B1B6D058BC9B5DD&&FORM=VRDGAR&ru=%2Fvideos%2Fsearch%3Fq%3DBig%2BBlue%2BWhale%26FORM%3DHDRSC4%26adlt%3Dstrict 

Now you have researched and found out some facts about whales can you recall all your facts and record them in your jotters. 

We will be writing the facts in a non fiction piece of writing tomorrow in class. 

I'm looking forward to hearing all of your wonderful facts and information.

 

 

 

In phonics let's continue our learning on split digraphs. 

Can you remember the split digraphs we are thinking about this week? 

a-e as in whale

e-e as in concrete

Today I would like you to continue practising your blending skills, reading words with these digraphs. Play the race game with someone at your house. Remember though you can only move forwards is you spot the digraph and blend the word correctly.

Don't forget to follow our success criteria for blending it will help you.

 

 

 

In numeracy today I would like you to revisit addition and subtraction. It's important to keep practising the skills we have already learnt to become efficient learners. 

Check out this link- on here there are lots of fun games, videos and challenges so you can revisit some of the strategies we have used in class and build on your learning.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znsmdp3 

 

Show off your skills and become a Maths Champion Karate Cat on the addition and subtraction level.

 

                    

Guided Reading- Today I would like you to practise finding information in a text. 

We will be using the text Ella Bella Ballerina and A Midsummer Night's Dream by James Mayhew.

Listen carefully to TV presenter Alex Jones reading extracts form the text and see if you can complete the three activities. 

 

                                  

 

13.10.20

Good morning Class 5 let's start with some phonics. Today we are going to continue thinking about split-digraphs. Our focus this week  is on the split-digraphs e-e and a-e.

Remember a split digraph is a digraph which has been split between a consonant 

swede

cake

Don't forget when reading words with a split digraph you still need to follow our success criteria for blending. 

Spot the digraph

say the phonemes

blend the phonemes 

Say the word

Don't forget to use the website below to practise your phonics every day. 

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

Literacy- Can you remember what non-fiction means? 

Today we are going to need to recall the facts we learnt yesterday and practise putting them into a piece of non-fiction writing. 

Before we get started though, what do you think makes a good piece of writing? 

I wonder can you set yourself a target and success criteria? 

Maybe you want to focus on one of these examples...

  • Making sure my sentences makes sense.
  • Handwriting.
  • Remembering capital letters and full stops.
  • Remembering to use my segmenting skills and record all the phonemes I can hear.
  • Starting my sentences with different openers.
  • Using the conjunctions and/but/so/because to extend my sentences. 

 

Let's look at an example together. What can you spot? 

 

Sharks are often known as a dangerous predator but in fact they are just a special type of fish. Did you know they live in every ocean in the world and some sharks even live in rivers or lakes? It is true that there are 500 different species of sharks. They are all different shapes and sizes.

 

Your turn now, record your sentences in your jotters and don't forget to set yourself a target and success criteria.

 

Numeracy- Today in numeracy I would like you to revisit and practise your skills around number and place value. 

Check out this link- there are a number of activities you can practise including:

 

counting in 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's

representing numbers, including writing them as words

ordering numbers

representing numbers in tens and ones

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z2k3p4j

 

It is important to practise and become fluent in your number and place value knowledge so that you can become an efficient learner and solve problems quickly and accurately.

 

 

12.10.20

Numeracy- Hello Class 5, I hope you've all had a good weekend.

Let's get started with our arithmetic challenge. Remember our arithmetic challenges are there to support us to become efficient learners and build on what we know to solve a problem using the best strategy. 

This week our arithmetic challenge is building on our learning of partitioning. 

 

 

Spellings- Take a look at this weeks spellings, I will be doing the spelling challenge next Monday at school. What methods could you use to remember the spellings?

Try look cover write and check or writing the word lots of times so you become familiar with the order of the graphemes. Ask your grown ups to test you and help you practise. 

 

                                          Mr

                                          Mrs

                                          called

                                          asked

                                          looked

                                          child

                                          children

Literacy- This week we are going to explore non-fiction texts in more detail. 

Can you remember what a non fiction text is? 

That's right its a text that gives you real facts and information.

As part of our learning we are going to work towards writing a non fiction book all about sea creatures. 

Let's have a think about the features of a non-fiction text. What does it need to have? 

             

 

Have you got a non-fiction book at home? Take a look have you got some of these features in your book? 

Today let's start researching and learning facts about our first sea creature. 

                             

The Shark

Let's watch this short video about sharks.

 

 

 

 

All about sharks

Still image for this video

Can you now record some facts in your jotter about sharks from the video. 

Where do sharks live?

How many species of shark are there?

What do sharks look like? 

Can you name some of the different types of sharks and their features?

 

Guided reading- During our reading today we are going to practice the skill of sequencing events in a text and retelling a story from memory. 

Watch the 2 video extracts from the story Funnybones by Janet and Allan Ahlberg and complete the three activities.

09.10.20

Good morning Class 5, I hope you are all still enjoying the learning this week and are ok. 

Literacy- Today we are going to complete our diary writing by adding Dougal's final entry. 

Think about all of your writing so far, take some time to read it back. What can you do today to improve your writing even further?

Maybe you would like to score some more points using the success criteria or today really work on your handwriting?

Let's take a look at one of my examples:

What do you spot? 

Do you think this is a good piece of writing? Why? 

 

Saturday

 

Dear Diary

Yesterday I arrived in the most amazing place I have ever been! It is called Atlantis. I got here using my new submarine. It meant I could explore deeper than I ever had before. Everyone who lives here is a mermaid or merman. Can you believe that? I have never felt so excited in all my life! Everyone is kind and likes to chat so it’s much nicer than those boring train journeys to work. This evening I had dinner with Neptune. He is the king of Atlantis. The food was delicious! He kept asking me to stay but unfortunately I’ve got to return to work tomorrow. I wish I didn’t have to leave but I don’t have a choice do I?

 

Time for you to have a try. 

Numeracy- Today we will continue our learning on partitioning, how did you get on yesterday? 

Your challenge today is to complete the sheet, choosing your own 3 numbers to partition and provide evidence of all the different ways you can partition a number. 

Remember to start by first partitioning into tens and ones and then move onto the different ways. If you can, then move onto partitioning the tens and ones even further. 

I've completed the first one for you. 

Don't worry if you can't print this document you can still record your evidence in your jotter.

 

Phonics- How are you getting on so far with our learning on split digraphs? Did you spot any split digraphs in your reading yesterday? 

Today I have a race game challenge. You will need your blending skills. Can you remember what the success criteria for blending is? 

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes 

Blend the phonemes 

Say the word. 

Good luck, I hope you enjoy the race. 

 

Guided Reading- Today we are going to look more closely at our reading skills. We are going to focus on how to understand a text and answer questions. We call this comprehension. 

 

Watch TV presenter Anita Rani read an extract from Daisy and the trouble with life and listen carefully. Can you complete the three activities using what you have heard/read from the text.

08.10.20

Good morning Class 5.

Literacy-how did you get on with the diary writing? 

Today I would like you to continue Dougal's diary and write about what happened next. 

Think about what you have already written and try to improve your writing even further by scoring more points with the success criteria.

You could even make your writing more adventurous by adding some extra adjectives or feelings. 

Let's take a look at my example below. 

What can you spot? 

 

Dear Diary

Oh what a day!  I am tired out! The heavy rain last night kept me awake for

ages so I woke up feeling a little bit grumpy and very sleepy. Luckily my day changed for the better. I discovered an old, ancient treasure chest. I couldn’t believe my luck. 

 

Have a go and see how you get on. 

In Numeracy we are going to continue our learning on partitioning. 

Do you remember what partition means? 

Today your challenge is to partition any 2 digit number. 

First take a look at how many tens and how many ones are represented. 

Then you could explore partitioning the tens and ones in different ways. 

   

                        

Excellent now I wonder can you take your learning further by partitioning the tens even more?

Take a look at my example below this may help. 

Don't forget to record your learning in your jotter. I'm looking forward to hearing about how many combinations you can partition a number into. 

 

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

Today we are going to continue our learning on the split digraphs 

o-e, u-e and i-e but you are going to need your segmenting skills. 

We are going to spell words using these split digraphs. 

Can you remember our success criteria for spelling? 

Say the word.

Segment the phonemes.

Count the phonemes.

Write all the phonemes you can hear. 

Check it. 

 

Let's have a go at spelling this word. 

    

Don't forget to follow the success criteria. 

biek

Remember this digraph is split by that sneaky consonant.

bike

 

Let's try one more.

 

      

 

roep

Remember this digraph is split by that sneaky consonant.

rope

 

Time for you to have a practise now by completing the roll and write challenge. 

 

 

 

 

07.10.20

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

Before we get started though I believe some of the documents have been difficult to open as a word document so I will try to save the documents as both a word and PDF format. Hopefully this will help.

 

Today in literacy I would like you to imagine you are Dougal. If you were to write an entry into his diary what would you put? Think about our learning so far on how to write a diary entry and don't forget to include your ideas about Dougal's thoughts and feelings from yesterday. 

 

To give you some ideas here is my example:

 

Saturday

Dear Diary

I woke up yesterday morning and was so excited because it was my last day at work. I couldn't wait to set off on my holiday! I went on the train as usual and as usual nobody spoke to me! This always makes me feel sad but I'm used to it now. The day seemed to go so slow! I'm sure the clock stopped for a while!

 Eventually it was time for me to finish work and finally set off on my holiday. The journey was long and tiring but at last I arrived on the harbour. I spotted the wooden, rickety boat I will be using tomorrow.

 I am so excited to become Dougal the Deep Sea Diver. I hope I see lots of wonderful sea creatures. I'd better stop writing and go to sleep now. I need to have plenty of energy for tomorrow!

 

P.S I was reading about a mysterious place called Atlantis. I wonder if I'll be lucky enough to see it.

 

 

 

Time for you to have a try now. Think about what you would like to include and read back over this weeks learning to make sure you include what a diary needs. 

To help you be successful in your writing I have included a success criteria. You will score points for every sentence you write. I wonder how many points you will score.

 

 

 

In Numeracy we have been thinking about partitioning. Can you remember what partition means? 

Yesterday we partitioned a single digit number. Today I would like you to partition a teen number please.

To start with choose a  number, then can you partition it into 10's and units. 

Once you have done that then you can think about partitioning the number in more ways. 

 

In phonics you will need your blending skills. Can you remember the success criteria for blending? 

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes

Blend the phonemes

Say the word. 

Today we are going to be spotting the split digraphs

                   ie  as in spike

                   oe as in hole

                   ue as in flute

Can you spot the digraph, say the phonemes and then finally say the sneaky consonant which has pushed it's way between the digraph.

Have a go at this roll and read challenge. 

Don't forget to follow our success criteria. 

 

 

Don't forget to do some reading today, log in and choose a book from the active learn website or share one of your favourite books with an adult. Today as an extra challenge can you spot any split digraphs in your books? Which one is it? Can you blend the word correctly?

Good morning Class 5, how did you get on with your diary writing? 

I'm looking forward to hearing about your weekend. 

Today in Literacy we're going to hear about someone else who keeps a diary. A deep sea diver called Dougal. 

Watch the video to hear the story and find out what Dougal did each day of the week.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULjWgbz1nDw

 

Now you have heard about Dougal's week, I wonder what do you think were his thoughts and feelings on each day? Can you give a reason for your answer?

 

 

 

 

Numeracy- In numeracy this week we are going to be learning about partitioning. 

hmmm what does partitioning mean? 

 

Partitioning is a way of working out problems that involves splitting numbers into smaller units or parts so they're easier to work with.

 

For example if I were to partition the number 6 it may look like this. Are there any other ways you could partition this number?  

    

                           

 

 Today your learning is to have a try at finding all the different ways you can partition the single digit numbers 2-9. You can record your evidence in your jotters.   

Guided Reading- Take a look at the reading text The Lion and the Mouse.

 

Can you reading it carefully with your adult using your decoding and blending skills. Don't forget to spot any tricky words and chunk the multi-syllabic words. 

 

Talk to your adult about the story. What happens? What do you think about each character and how they behaved? 

 

Have a go at completing the comprehension questions. Don't forget to use evidence from the text to support your answer. 

Don't forget you can keep practising your reading everyday by choosing a book off the active learn primary website.

Here is the link.

Good morning Class 5, let's start our learning with an arithmetic challenge. Remember to try and solve the problems using an efficient strategy we have been talking about in class. Can you develop your reasoning skills by explaining how you found the answer to an adult. Think about our learning on related number facts. If I know.......then I also know........

 

 

Numeracy Fluency- Don't forget to keep practising your doubles, number bonds and times tables.

In Literacy today and for the rest of the week we are going to focus on writing a diary. 

What is a diary? 

Let's take a look at this document. It shows you how to write a diary and what needs to be included. 

Let's have a look at part of a diary example from Saturday.

What do you think? 

 

Saturday 3rd October

Dear Diary,

woke up at 7:30. My mum was pleased that I hadn't woken up too early. looked out the window and realised we'd have to play inside today because it was very rainy and wet!

had my breakfast. chose my favourite today, huge, juicy strawberries and pancakes. Yum!

After that, watched a few cartoons and played with my toys. It was still raining so my mum decided we could go bowling. love bowling so I was very excited!

 

Blue = date and intro          Green = personal pronoun I   

Red = conjunctions             Purple= feelings                 

Grey = time connective       Orange = adjectives

Your Challenge today is to write a diary entry from your weekend. 

Try to include:

  • Date/Day/Introduction
  • Personal pronoun I
  • Adjectives to add detail
  • Conjunctions
  • Feelings/thoughts
  • Time connectives- (Then, next, after that.....)

In phonics this week our focus is on the split-digraphs i-e, u-e, o-e.

Remember a split digraph is a digraph which has been split between a consonant 

For example  ie  -  bike

                      ue -  rule

                      oe -  rope

Use the website below to practise your phonics every day. 

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

 

Remember to use pure sounds when blending phonemes together. 

This link will support you with this.

Don't forget to keep practising your spellings each week. We have our spelling challenge every Monday and new ones will be set every week.

Take a look at our wonderful artwork!

This term, Class 5 have been developing their art skills through using different media. So far we have looked at fabric, using felt to create a pirate scene and we have used pencil to explore different drawing techniques to create a shaded effect. The children will enjoy demonstrating how to shade with different graded pencils and use hatching and cross-hatching if you are interested in finding out more. 

In Numeracy we have been working on place value, number bonds, doubles, near doubles and comparing numbers. Next week we are moving onto partitioning a number.

Take a look at our fantastic learning.

In Literacy we have been learning lots of exciting facts and information about pirates in order to write a non fiction book. Did you know there were different types of pirates and they all followed a pirate code? Ask your child to recall some facts, you may be surprised that some of the facts that most people believe are actually a myth.
Pirate day was great fun. Take a look at some of the activities we enjoyed taking part in. 

Welcome back everyone!

 

We really hope your child has come home happy and excited about school today! We've all enjoyed being pirates for the day!

 

We have sent them home with their weekly spellings. These are to be practised at home please. They will be tested on these spellings every Monday.The spellings might be easy for your child at the moment but please bare with us as we get to know your child and their current level.

We have also sent them home with their 'Home/School Diary'. This is to stay at home and they can use it to practise their weekly spellings in (there are other activities in the front too).

 

At the moment we will not be asking for anything to be sent into school. All children have be provided with everything they need (water bottles, etc). We will be doing PE twice a week but we don't need the children to wear PE kits at this time, they will take off shoes and socks. If your child has earrings can these please be taken out on PE days if your child isn't able to do this independently? Thank you.

Ella Bella Ballerina and A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Ella Bella is having a ballet lesson. Her teacher has given the children some clothes to dress up in and played some music called ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ for them to dance to. This music is based on William Shakespeare’s play and there are fairies and a king and queen in the play. When the ballet lesson ends, Ella Bella stays behind on her own to dance.

Watch TV presenter Alex Jones read an extract from Ella Bella Ballerina and A Midsummer Night’s Dream and listen carefully to what happens.

Think about the following:

  • What is Ella Bella doing at the beginning?

  • Who do you think Puck is?

  • What is Puck looking for?

  • Who sent Puck?

  • Where does Puck take Ella Bella?

Now I'd like you to create your own traditional tale by re-writing the story but this time can you change either the character or the setting. 

 

Think about how your story will flow and don't forget to use your non-negotiables and key writing skills to make your story adventurous and interesting to read.  

 

Take some time to read your story back:

Does it make sense? 

Have you used the correct punctuation? 

Can you add anything more to improve your story further?

Next it's time to use your imagination. Imagine you had some magic biscuits. What could happen?  Can you carry on this story....

 

Brian had often bought things from the market that had turned out to be the most outrageous, disappointing fakes.

He had presumed that the magic biscuits would have been exactly the same. How wrong he had been...

 

These questions might help get you thinking...

What had happened when Brian fed the biscuits to his dogs?

How quickly did they grow to this size do you think?

Did Brian give the biscuits to anything/anyone else?

Have the creatures stopped growing?

How will Brian keep them as pets?

What are the benefits/problems with having such enormous pets?

Is there a way for Brian to restore his animals to their original size?

Geography 24.4.20

 

Let’s learn about the United Kingdom!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zyhp34j/articles/z4v3jhv

 

 

Can you draw the flag of the UK? Maybe you could then research and learn the countries of the UK and the capital cities.

 

 

To take your learning even further I wonder if you could design a travel guide to encourage people to visit the UK.

 

 

 

 

Home Learning 22.04.20

 

                                             

Literacy

Think back to the story ‘Whatever Next’. Baby Bear imagined going to the moon. Can you invent a space story? Will you visit the moon or somewhere else? Who will go with you? What will you do there?

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter!

 

Today I have got you a numeracy challenge and a new website to explore that I think you will really like!

 

Numeracy 10 more and 10 less

 

Make your own tens and ones using straws, tooth pics, pencils (or anything else you can think of which you can make into bundles of ten).

Make your own tens and ones baseboard and practise adding and subtracting 10 from your number.

Link to video on adding 10:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqUtj9rkYCU&list=UUob4tkfOSXy6yav9Y54SKIQ&index

 

The video shows how to work with 'hundreds' too. Don't worry if you're not sure about this. You only need to be able to add and subtract tens from two digit numbers at the moment.
