Remote Learning For Week Beginning 11th January

I hope that you have had a good weekend.

 

Well done to all of you who have sent me photos of your work and/or who have logged-in to Mathshed, Spellingshed and Timestables Rockstars. Please make sure that you have had a go at those activities so that I can see your progress.

 

Remember to ask your parents to email me examples of your learning so that we can share some on our webpages and so that I can give you some feedback. 

 

The email address is learningathome.034@educ.somerset.gov.uk 

Please put Mrs Norrey in the subject box.

 

Below, I have told you what quite a lot of this week's activities will be.  If you are one of the people who is coming into school some days this week, please do not jump ahead - please do the activities on the days that are written.  Thank you.  

 

Monday 11th January 2021

 

Maths

We will carry on using Mondays as our shape and measure day.  So, open up your other new maths workbook on Length and Perimeter.  (It may have a red dot on it.)

 

1) Get a pencil.  (Please don't use pen.)

2) Write the date (11/01/21) above the title.  Underline the date with a ruler.

3) Draw traffic lights to the right of the title.  Use a ruler!

4) Watch the video below.

5) Answer the warm-up questions in your Lockdown Learning exercise book.

6) Have a go at workbook questions 1-7.  Be neat!

7) Mark your answers neatly.  (Small ticks please!)

8) Colour your traffic lights.

Equivalent lengths m and cm

English

 

Spelling

As you know, Monday is Jumping Orange Words Day.

Go to this page to practise this week's words using some of the ideas I have put there.  You may want to use your new spelling booklet (that has lots of Jumping Orange Words in) to help you too.

 

I know that some of you have already practised this week's words, so revise some from this list instead.

 

In the Jumping Orange Words section at the bottom of page 18 in your RWI book, write the words that you have been working on today.  Remember to use a pencil and neat, joined writing.

 

Reading

Read for at least 15 minutes and record it in your BHBOAE.  (Write down any -ly words that you find.)

 

Dictionary Skills

Purple English book page 58 and 59.

 

You need to know the alphabet really well to be able to use a dictionary to help you spell.

 

1) If you aren't sure about the order of the letters in the alphabet, write it out neatly in your exercise book.  You can do it colourfully if you like - as long as it is neat!

 

2) Try Challenge 1, 2 and 3.  (You may find it easier to start with Challenge 2.)

 

Remember: if both words start with same letter, look at the 2nd letter of each word.  The one whose 2nd letter comes first in the alphabet is the one you'll find 1st in the dictionary.  It's like when we compare two numbers: we look at the thousands first; if they're the same we look at the hundreds.

 

3) Mark your answers.

 

RE

This term we are learning about Christianity and Salvation.

As an introduction, please follow the link below to hear James talk about what Christianity means to him:

 

http://request.org.uk/teachers/teaching-resources/life-resources/2014/09/24/meet-a-christian-james

 

Think about

  • What it means to belong to a religion;
  • What they would say a Christian is.

 

To do some more research about Christianity, go to the BBC bitesize website. 

 

Write down anything you discover in your Lockdown Learning exercise book.

 

Please send any questions or work about RE to Mrs Fielding using the learningathome.034@educ.somerset.gov.uk address.

 

Geography/Homelearning

Have you finished the geography/homelearning from last Friday?  If not, please catch-up. 

 

Also, make sure you have done all the Mathshed and Spellingshed activities that I have set.

 

If you still have a few minutes spare, dip into some of the activities on here!

Spelling

Open your RWI book at page 17.

Ask someone to dictate the Unit 4 Partner A or Partner B spellings for you.

If you're really keen, why not write the Partner A and Partner B spellings!

Handwriting

Write the long date in your Lockdown Learning book.

Use a pencil to write a row of each word in you best, joined handwriting.

Geography/Writing

This week we will look at some clips, Powerpoints and websites to remind ourselves about the different parts (features) of a river.  (Do you remember that we watched a film about this before Christmas?  It took us from the source of The River Severn all the way to the sea.  We saw some otters and The Severn Bore along the way.)

 

Over the next couple of weeks, we will write an explanation of how rivers are formed. 

 

Today, I would like you to make notes about the features in the Upper Course.  Write down what the speed, width and depth of the river is like there too.  Remember that notes can be bullet points and shouldn't be full sentences.  Just jot down the most important ideas. 

 

Here are some links to help:

Below, I have put a sheet that might help you set out your notes in your Lockdown Learning book.  On one copy of the sheet I have shown you how to make notes too.  If you would prefer to gather your notes in a mindmap that is OK.  There is also a Powerpoint.

Spelling

Open your RWI book at page 17.

Use yesterday's links and Powerpoint to help you. 

 

(Tomorrow you will be making notes about the Lower Course. )

 

Science

Mrs Fielding would like you to continue learning about rocks.  Below are two sheets.  One gives you examples of rocks; the other gives you a sheet which helps you to sort those types of rocks.  You will use the 1-star sorting sheet.

 

You can choose how you would like to do this:

1) Print the sheets and stick the pictures into the correct boxes  

or

2) Draw the table into your orange Lockdown Learning book and write the names of the rocks in the correct columns.

 

PE

The Get Active! page has got some new links on it as well as some old favourites.  Have a look, try something to get you moving and let Mrs Fielding know if you would recommend an activity to the rest of the class (or school)!

 

Please ask your parents to email Mrs Fielding with any questions or work about Science or PE.  Thank you.

3) Read the sentences.  Do they all make sense now?

4) Mark your work using the answers below.

 

Reading

Read for at least 15 minutes.  Write some comments in your BHBOAE saying what you like about your book.

 

Geography/Writing

Today, make notes about the speed, width and depth of a river in its Lower Course. 

 

Include information about

  • floodplains
  • estuaries
  • deltas
  • the mouth of a river.

 

Use Tuesday's links and Powerpoint to help you. 

 

Remember that your notes should not be full sentences because you will need to re-write the ideas in your own full sentences once you have gathered lots of facts.

 

Please let me know any websites you've found useful that I haven't given you links for.  I can let everyone else know about them.

Art

Let's have a go at making a lovely river picture using the video below to help you. 

 

We will try to create some perspective (feeling of distance) in it.  Remember that we do this by

- making things that are further away (in the background) look smaller than things near the front (in the foreground);

- making background colours paler than foreground colours.

 

You can choose whether you use coloured pencils or paints.  

 

If you use pencils, you could try hatching to create some depth.  Hatching is drawing small, diagonal lines of one colour and than going in between the gaps or over the top with another colour.  For example, with the grass you could do one shade of green and another shade on top.  Perhaps, experiment a bit before you try it on your finished picture.

 

Please ask your parents to email your art to me so that I can add it to the gallery.  (Please write first names only on your artwork.  Thank you.)

Tell them which ones you found easier and which ones you found harder. 

Can you explain why?

Did you find any ways to help you remember how to spell some of the trickier words?

 

Go on to Spellingshed to practise the words one more time.  Next week, You will have your Speed Spell test!

 

Reading Comprehension

Today you'll be thinking about different types of text and stories.

1) Purple book pages 70-71. 

2) Purple book pages 22-23.  (The posters on this website may help you to work-out which genres (types) of story the texts are from.

 

Remember to mark your answers.

 

Handwriting

In pencil, please write a line of each word.  Take great care with w so that it goes to the top in the middle and has angular lines.  (I don't want to see a wobbly w!)

History

We will be learning about Ancient Egypt this term. 

Please start by letting me know what you already know about Ancient Egypt.  Use the layout of the mindmap below to help.

 

If you like, you can also tell me what you would like to learn about the Egyptians.  I can try to fit it in!

 

After you've finished writing, watch the Bitesize clip here.  Did you already know those things?

Music

Finish the week by logging into Yumu and practising signing Mamma Mia. 

 

If you have time, you can move to the pulse animals.  You could also try using Rhythm Grid to make your own rhythms or use Percussion Writer to accompany some famous music.  Remember how we had a go at accompanying the Surprise Symphony? You could try the Radetsky March this time.  Be warned: once it's in your head it's difficult to get it out.

 

Homelearning

I would like to hear from all of you!

 

I am going to create a page to help you choose books to read.  

Please can you write a few sentences about what you are enjoying about your reading book.  I will add your comments to the page.

 

Please make sure you have sent me the rivers work I asked you to do last weekend and have finished all of the Mathshed and Spellingshed activities that are set.  If you have, practise adding 9 to numbers.  Remember that you can +10 and -1.  Can you do this with 1-digit, 2-digit, 3-digit and 4-digit numbers?
