MONDAY 1st June

MATHS

Warm up. How many number bonds to 20 can you write down in 1 minute?

This week it is time to tell the time!! It is quite a long time (!!!) since we looked at time, so today we will start with some revision. We are only concentrating on analogue time rather than digital time. If you don’t have a suitable clock at home, there are a couple of interactive clocks you could use below for demonstration purposes, where you can drag the hands around the clock. (Again don’t worry about the digital display.)

https://www.visnos.com/demos/clock                   https://www.roomrecess.com/Tools/InteractiveClock/play.html

Watch the lesson presentation Lesson Presentation Race Against The Clock   Then complete the following activity Telling Time Quarter Hour  PLEASE NOTE THE ANSWER PAGE SHOWS DIGITAL TIME. IGNORE THESE!!! (I couldn’t delete the page!!) Parents please ask the children to write the time in words with the correct spelling of o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.

If you wish, there is an optional game to play below:

ENGLISH-POETRY

I hope you enjoyed reading the poem ‘Aliens stole my underpants’ from yesterday. Did you manage to learn the first two verses by heart?                                                    Remember, aliens don’t know about earthlings objects. They might think a bowl is a hat or a phone is a talking pet!!! Pick some objects from around your house and in one sentence for each object, explain to the alien what they are used for. Use expanded noun phrases. Here are some examples:

This fluffy, blue cushion is used to cuddle up to on the settee.                                                                                                                                                                                               We clean our teeth with this minty, white toothpaste.                                                                                                                                                                                                            Mum cooks pasta for tea in a shiny, metal pan.

We are now going to start to tell the time to the 5 minutes. This is really tricky and will take time. Please spend a lot of time discussing the following powerpoint and take it slowly!! ⌚⏰⏱⏲

Lesson Presentation Rock Around The Clock

Then play the game Rock Around The Clock Board Game  Remember if you don’t have a suitable clock at home, use the interactive clocks suggested on Monday.

ENGLISH

Re-read the poem ‘Aliens stole my underpants.’  Spot all of the rhyming words at the ends of the second and fourth lines.                                                                          The poet cannot quite believe that the aliens have stolen his underpants!! Discuss with your grown up how there could be all sorts of everyday boring objects that might be very interesting to aliens and could be used for lots of different things!! You are going to have a go at writing your own rhyming poem describing what the aliens do with some of these objects. I have written an example:

Aliens Mrs Joyce Version                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Remember, the first line of each verse starts in the same way; ‘The aliens stole my…………., just choose a different object each time  and make sure that final word of your second line rhymes with the final word of your first line. I would love to see your finished poems on Tapestry!!

SCIENCE

We are starting a new science topic called  ‘Living things and their habitats.’

Today we are going to practise counting coins over a pound. Please watch the following video and have your coins from last week to hand. The video will also show how to count notes as well as coins.

Now is your chance to show me what you have learned about fractions. I would like you to make a poster showing some of the things you have learned. Here are some ideas: you could do a few examples of each.

  1. Draw some shapes and split them into equal sections showing halves, quarters, thirds, three quarters etc.
  2. Use the shapes on the sheet below to fold and cut into halves or quarters.
  3. Use the food sheets below to cut up pizzas, biscuits and pies to show fractions!!
  4. Halve and quarter some amounts e.g Half of 16 is 8, a quarter of 12 is 3 (Remember to find a quarter, halve the number and halve it again) Your grown up might need to choose some numbers for you.
  5.  Write some maths statements e.g There were 8 people at the bus stop, half of the people got on so there were 4 left.

These are just ideas. Feel free to show your learning in any way you can!!

What do you think of the character of Willy the Wimp? Complete the following activity sheet to describe him.

Willy The Wimp Description

HISTORY

Today we are going to look at some of the famous kings and queens from history. The presentation has quite a lot of reading in it, so you might need a little help from a grown up. Stop at slide 15 to do the activity below and then check your answers on slide 17. Lesson Presentation Significant British Monarchs

On the activity sheet, you have to put the dates in order on a timeline. Top tip- the first two digits will give you the first clue, so 1744 comes before 1967 on the timeline, just like in ordinary numbers. If you have to decide which is the earliest ,when the first two digits of the date are the same e.g 1876 or 1845, then look at the second two digits – 45 is lower than 76, so 1845 comes before 1876 on the timeline.

Significant British Monarchs Timeline Ordering Activity

Please note this activity consists of two pages. The first is the blank timeline, the second is the cutting sheet. The pictures on the cutting sheet are repeated, so you only need to use the first set of nine pictures from Edward I to Elizabeth I.

WEDNESDAY 22nd April

MATHS

Mental warm up- practise counting in 2’s, 3’s, 5’s and 10’s out loud ,as this will help you with today’s activity.

Today we are going to learn how to read scales in ml on measuring containers. Do you remember on Science Day how we used measuring jugs to measure water and washing up liquid to make our bubble mixture?

Watch the following powerpoint and work out how much liquid is in the measuring jugs each time. Take note, it is a little bit like reading a number line. However, the scale might not always count in 1’s. It might count in 1’s, 2’s, 3’s  or  10’s, so use the clues that you have to work out what it is counting in. (NB Make sure when you open up the powerpoint, click on ‘Enable Editing’ then ensure that the ‘Slide Show’ tab is open and click ‘From Beginning.’)

Measuring In Ml Powerpoint

Then complete the activity: Measuring In Ml Activity Sheet Remember not to peep at the answers!! You only need to do the first set of questions. For some strange reason the questions and answers are repeated twice!

ENGLISH

Think back to yesterday’s story of Willy the Wimp. I have re-told part of the story in my own words for you to read.

Willy The Wimp Re Telling VJ

Then complete the sheet below by picking out the grammatical features of the story that I have used. The numbers in brackets tell you how many I want you to find. So for example in the first section of expanded noun phrases you could have ‘small, weak monkey.’ The final box asks you to find a simile. Remember, a simile is where you compare one thing to another e.g He was as slow as a snail. (That one isn’t an example in my story!!)

Grammatical Features In Willy The Wimp Story

HISTORY

Today we will look at the life of Queen Victoria. Please watch the following short film about her life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaSnKaoFjKc Then complete the following activity where you have to fill in the missing words. Most of the answers you will have heard in the film, but there are a couple of things the film does not mention. See if you can find these out, or you may be able to work them out from the answers you have left over.

Complete the one star activity Queen Victoria Fact File Draw a picture of Queen Victoria in the box at the top.

ENGLISH

You are going to re-tell the story of Willy the Wimp in your own words. I want you to spend two lessons doing this, as hopefully it will be quite a long piece of writing. So please do not rush it. You have plenty of time.I will give you your WILF criteria (What I‘m Looking For) below, so you know what to include in your re-telling. Remember, you are re-telling the original story, not making up a new story. That will come next week!!!

You can either write your story straight into your homework books or use the sheet provided below.

Story sheet- Willy The Wimp Re Tell The Story

WILF –Willy The Wimp Re Tell WILF

MATHS

Maths warm up- on a whiteboard or a piece of paper/blue homework book how many ways can you make 100 in five minutes? Use your number bonds to 10 help you. If you know 6 + 4 = 10, then you also know 60 + 40 = 100. If you know 3 + 3 + 2 + 2 = 10, then you also know 30 + 30 + 20 + 20 = 100.

Capacity problem. Have a go at this sheet.Ways Of Making 100ml   Use the skills you have just been practising to help you. Please note, there are some multiples of 5 on the sheet too as a challenge. If you are working out 15 + 25 add the 10 and the 20 together first to make 30, then add the remaining 5 + 5 to make 10. Add the 2 answers together to get a total of 40.

ART- drawing skills

Next week we are going to be doing some sketches of Queen Victoria. Today I would like you to watch the first section of a video on how to use a pencil for creating light and dark shades.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPEp8dl_TOg

The artist shows us lots of different pencils that are available, but we are just going to use an ordinary school pencil. Watch what he does up to 1 minute and 51 seconds in the video and then create your own shading guide using just one pencil on the template below. You are welcome to watch the rest of the video, but these are skills that you will learn in the Juniors. I had a go too!! (see below)

Shading Guide Template

Line 1                          Question (Don’t forget your question mark)

Line 2                           Statement (which in this case will be an answer to the question)
