Each week I will have a selection of English, Maths and Topic work for you to look at if you are able to do home learning at home. I know it can not always be easy but I am here to help you. If you have any questions please contact me on our class email:

  Reading Comprehension  

This week’s reading comprehension is an email. It is laid out like a letter which you are all familiar with from our work in class. It is written by Robyn to her mum and dad.
Click here.

 

English   

1) There are three lessons on grammar and punctuation for you to do. You can then use them in your own letter.

 

• Writing super sentences. Click for lesson and click here for worksheet.
• Using conjunctions. Click for lesson and click here for worksheet.
• Identifying pronouns. Click for lesson and click here for worksheet.

 

2) A letter to my future self. Click here for writing scaffold.

 

• You can choose which layout you would prefer.
• Do use what we learned from writing letters in our Little Wolf work.
• Remember to organise your different ideas into paragraphs if you have a lot to say.
• A plan may be a good idea to help you organise all your ideas about what you want to say, e.g. what it is like to be at home during Lockdown, being at school/not being at school, what you play now, being with family and not seeing friends, things that have changed…what you like best, what you miss most. This could go well with the Art activity ‘Notes to a future self’.

 

Spelling

 

Maths

Use the White Rose Maths website and this week do the second week on Multiplication and Division. Please do Week 4 of Summer Term (that is the week beginning 11.5.20).

 

You will find 4 lessons and each one has a short video to watch. I have put worksheets to do with each video lesson on this page. There are some more Friday challenges on the White Rose website to try with your family too.

 

Don’t panic if it gets too tricky!! We will definitely go over all this when we are back in school. Just do what you can. Most of it though should be familiar from class.

 

Art at home

There are two different ideas to try out. Enjoy!

Reading Comprehension

‘A Martian Comes to stay’. Read the story extract and then answer the questions. Click A Martian comes to stay Qs only.
I have provided the Answers too.

 

English ‘Found Poetry’

This is an easy way to make a poem from words you can find in a favourite book, even a newspaper or a magazine. It can have a theme if you want or just have words you like the sound of!

 

Click for here the instructions for ‘Found Poetry’.
You could make it look like the art of Tom Phillips [no title: p. 170]
[no title: p. 170] 1970 Tom Phillips born 1937 Presented by the Institute of Contemporary Prints 1975 http://www.tate.org.uk/art/work/P01516
Put the words of your poem on a background that complements your poem.
The Tate Art Gallery has other examples of his work too.

Morning Maths

Maths

Use the White Rose Maths website and this week do:
Multiplication and Division & Money Week 3 of Summer Term (week beginning 4.5.20)

 

You will find 4 lessons and each one has a short video to watch with related activities. As you watch the video clip you can have a go at the work. It also has the answers for you to check your work. There are some more Friday challenges to try with your family too.

 

 

Art and Design Can you design a new piece of playground apparatus?

It could have swings, a slide, a climbing frame, tunnels…whatever you want!
What materials would you use? What colours? Will the surfaces be smooth, rough, reflective?
You could make it out of junk modelling and paint it. Or maybe use Lego. Or maybe draw it.
I would love to see photos of them!

 

 

Science How is water transported in a plant? How do they ‘drink’?

1)  Watch the video ‘Ivy’s Plant Shop’ on BBC Teach Class Clips
2) You can then do:
Two Coloured Daisy experiment. Click here.

Or the same investigation as Ivy in the BBC video:

 

Simple testHow can we prove that stems transport water?
Place a white carnation and a stick of celery into separate containers of water. Add a dark food colouring like red or blue to the water and mark the water level on the container. Over the next few days observe what happens to the plants and the water. You may want to mark the water level each day. Watch what happens to the water level and watch what happens to the petals of the carnation or the leaves of the celery.

 

Recording
• Draw the stems before and after they have been placed in the water/dye mixture.
• Record the height of the water each day.
• Can you explain what has happened?

 

Other Ideas

  • ‘The Tray Game’ memory game. Click here.
  • Invent a new way to say hello.
Can you invent a new handshake or a way to give someone a ‘high five’ for when schools return? It has to be safe, so make it ‘socially distant’ but also fun!
