This week's key learning
This week’s top skill will be sending an email with an attachment. I will be showing you how to do this during one of our live lessons and I would love you to send me some of your work as an attachment afterwards. And don’t forget our live lessons which will be held at:
9.10am and 2pm everyday. This will be your chance to learn directly with me and to see your friends.
Click here to download this week’s work, and continue reading for quick access to all your links and other information.
Today we are learning about fractions, and we will be thinking particularly about equivalent fractions. You will need to watch the video, here. Once you’ve finished the lesson, there are some activites on your worksheet.
For your SPAG work this week we will be looking at Fronted Adverbials. Make sure you look at your worksheet as you have a few activities. You will need to click on this link, to view the lesson and find your work.
On our Zoom call today, we will be talking about this book cover. I would like you to use the cover to think about what the book will be about. (Do not be tempted to google this!)
What do you think the book is about?
What can you see on the cover?
I want you to make as many suggestions as you can. Miss Thorburn and I will be making a classroom display for the book and would love it to have your home learning on. Pictures that you send of your work will be able to be displayed and shared with you!
Today we will be thinking about the water cycle. Please start by clicking on this link to watch the video and read about the water cycle. Can you research and draw a labelled diagram of The Water Cycle? You could draw this by hand or on the computer.
In today’s video call we will be looking at some very interesting discoveries. As we look at each item we will be thinking about who may have lost it – what sort of person are they? Where might they live? All the questions that we will ask are the kinds of questions that help us create characters. If you cannot get on today’s video lesson, please click on the email button at the top of this page, and send me a message. I will send you some photos to help you work instead.
Last week in Geography, your task was to label the world map. On this map, you should have added the equator line.
What is the equator?
Today can you research and note down the different temperatures in our world. We have countries that are known as hot countries and those known as cold countries. We also have wet and dry climates.
You could start by looking at the 7 continents and finding out what the weather is like there. Is it the same weather all year round? Your information could be presented in a table or on a labelled map.
Today we will be learning about addition and subtraction of fractions.There is a lesson for you to watch here, scroll to the bottom of the page and watch the last video. Don’t forget to look at your worksheets for the accompanying work.
In SPAG we are continuing with Fronted Adverbials, click here to view today’s work, it starts with a new video. Once you’ve watched the video, check your worksheet for what to do next.
You also have a READING activity on your worksheet.
Using the items from yesterday’s video session, I would like you to think about just one of the people who might have owned the items. I would like you to write a ‘back story’ of this person. You could include the following:
Who was this person?
In what time period did that time person live? What makes you think this?
Why might they have owned these items or been travelling with them?
Where do you think they were travelling to and why?
What kind of person do you think they were?
In today’s video call we will be talking about the images above. After the call you will find some writing prompts on your worksheets.
Have a look at Hokusai’s artwork, ‘The Great Wave’ . The image depicts an enormous wave threatening three boats off the coast in the Sagami Bay with Mount Fuji rising in the background. It is Hokusai’s most famous work and is often considered the most recognizable work of Japanese art in the world.
Can you create your own version of this picture? There are some examples with the original on your worksheet.
By converting fractions so that they have the same denominator, we can not only add and subtract fractions but we can compare them too. We can see which is the smallest or largest and we can also put them in order.
Can you try the activity at the bottom of the worksheet using your skills from this week? Remember, whatever you do to the numerator, you must do to the denominator!
In SPAG, can you choose a focus/ topic of your own today? Write some sentences using fronted adverbials. You could write about something you enjoy, like football, or dancing, or even about home learning!
For READING today, please do this interactive reading comprehension about sharks.
I have something exciting to share with you on today’s video call. I will also be sharing some images from our new book ‘Flotsam’.
Once we have shared these, I would like you to answer the question, ‘What could be on the camera?’ I would like you to draw a picture of what could be on it and write sentences to describe it. Use the different grammar skills that you’ve worked hard on for the last two weeks to include wonderful descriptions.
Use the button at the top of this page to send your ideas to me in an email!
Your history links closely with our English work today. Can you research and create a timeline on the development and history of the camera.
When was it first invented and used? Is it like the cameras we have today?
You could include pictures in your timeline and key information. I’ve attached some useful web links below that could help you.
