History – Ancient Egypt: Using sources of evidence to help understand what life was like in Ancient Egypt.

Image result for Ancient Egyptian artefacts                    Image result for Ancient Egyptian artefacts                      Image result for Ancient Egyptian artefacts

During our last History topic about Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, we learnt that archaeologists understand about life in the past from the objects and evidence that people left behind. These objects are called ‘artefacts’. Lots of artefacts have been found from Ancient Egyptian times, so archaeologists have been able to piece together clues from these artefacts to build up a detailed picture of life in Ancient Egypt.

Today, you are going to be archaeologists! You are going to look at pictures of artefacts and answer questions (and ask questions!) to help you understand what each one tells us about life in Ancient Egypt.

The following power point shows you what sort of questions to ask about one artefact, and how they could be answered. Read those carefully, then have a good look at the photos of the artefacts at the end of the powerpoint.

Ancient Egypt Sources Of Evidence PowerPoint 1

Now your task is to complete a worksheet, answering questions on one artefact. You can scroll down the worksheet to choose the artefact you are most interested in. Alternatively, you could print one of the pictures and arrange the answers to the questions your own way. I have also included some very close up photos of the artefacts so you can get a very clear and detailed look at them. If you have time, you could complete this task for more than one object.

Tuesday, 2nd February, 2021.

As an introduction to Child Mental Health Week, watch the following short video called Talking  Mental Health. This explains what ‘mental health’ means and why it is so important. If you can, listen to it with an adult, so that you can talk about the ideas in the video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCrjevx3-Js

It is well-known that getting outside into nature is good for our mental health, so today see if you can spot any of these birds in your garden or if you go on a walk. You will need to be quiet and really look and listen carefully! Make sure you record your sightings. Good luck!

T T 17664 Garden Birds Sighting Checklist

If there is snow on the ground, you may be able to spot bird or other animal tracks! Then have fun creating some tracks of your own!

 

Spelling Test

Ask an adult to test you on the words you have been practising. Adults, please could you give the words to the children in random order as this is what we normally do in class?  If your child gets any of the words wrong, please spend a few minutes practising them before testing them again on those words. Thank you.

 

English: Reading (non-fiction).

Today you will continue learning how to answer questions based on a non-fiction text. Your Geography work this week will involve reading lots of non-fiction texts, so listen carefully to the teaching video and answer the questions in your books.

Geography: Research information for a poster, fact-file or leaflet about ONE country of the United Kingdom, either England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.

Today, I would like you to begin a 3-lesson project (2 lessons this week, 1 lesson next week).  The aim of the project is for you to create a poster, fact-file, leaflet or information page about one country of the UK. You are going to research your chosen country, finding information about many different aspects of that country, and then arranging it in an eye-catching way to appeal to the reader. You may choose a country in the UK you have been to on holiday, or one that you want to find out more about. I will give you information, links, research sheets, presentation sheets and ideas that you can use, but YOU are in charge of this project and can use and present the information you find in any way you like. You might even want to do it on the computer!

Focus your research on some or all of these ideas:

  • Size and population (the number of people who live there)
  • Flag
  • Capital city
  • Patron saint
  • Emblem
  • Weather
  • Highest mountain
  • Major rivers
  • Other landscape features
  • Places of interest
  • Famous people
  • Food and drink
  • Celebrations/customs/festivals
  • Holiday activities

Here is a Research Map that you could use to collect some of your information, but you can collect the information your own way if you prefer:

Research Map Template

Here are some of the ways you could present your research:

UK Posters

Fact File Template

Fact File Leaflet Template

You may have a different idea and that is fine! Remember, it’s all about making the information interesting and eye-catching in the way YOU want to do it.

Here are some information powerpoints to get you started:

Scotland Information Powerpoint

Wales Information Powerpoint

Northern Ireland Information Powerpoint

England Information Powerpoint

Another good site for information is Project Britain. Click on the link below and then click on the country you want to research (these are in red at the top of the page).

http://projectbritain.com/britain.html

Remember, you have three afternoons for this activity, so don’t rush it. Pick out information and images you think will be most interesting for the reader. There is no requirement to print anything; drawings are equally good. Above all, have fun learning about your chosen country.

If you like, bring your superhero to the Zoom meeting tomorrow. I’d love to see them!

Monday, 11th January, 2021.

Spelling Practice:  

Spend 15 – 20 minutes practising this week’s spellings ready for tomorrow’s test. Write the words out carefully in your book, using your neatest handwriting, then use lots of the spelling strategies you have been taught in class.  If you need a reminder, have a look at the powerpoint below. You can do your practising on spare paper or a whiteboard if you have one.

Spelling Strategies Powerpoint

 

English: Poetry

Today, you are going to start a series of lessons based on a poem about the weather and the months of the year. For the first lesson, I would like you to read the Weather Poem below. Read it aloud several times until you can read it fluently with a good rhythm. As you are reading, you may come across some words you are not familiar with, such as ‘resolutions’, ‘scent’ or ‘drought’. Use a dictionary to find the meanings of these new words and jot them down in your book.

Weather Poem

Notice that the verse for August says ‘August goes on holiday’. This makes it sound as though the month of August is a person! The month of August can’t actually go on holiday, can it?  This is called ‘personification’. There is another example in the February verse, where it says ‘Winter shivers’. Can you find any other examples? Write those in your book, too. Now write a few sentences to explain your own thoughts about the poem. Which verses do you particularly like? Why do you like those?

 

Times Tables Practice:  Go on TT Rockstars or Hit the Button to practise your times tables. The tables you should be practising are the 10s, 5s, 2s, 3s and 4s.  If you know all those times tables very well, you should start learning the 8s next.

 

Maths: Statistics – Scaled Bar Charts

Look at the three bar charts on the following pages and answer the questions for each one. Then check your work with the answer sheets at the end.

English: Collecting ideas for my own Months Poem

Over the next few lessons you are going to learn how to write your own poem all about the different months of the year. Today is all about collecting ideas. I would like you to use the chart below to think of the weather and events that happen in each month of the year, as well as food and sights you might see. Try to think of four ideas for each month. For example, in April you could put:

  • April Fool’s Day
  • Easter eggs
  • Sunshine and showers
  • My birthday!

Have lots of fun talking to other people in your family to help with ideas!

RE – What do prayers ask for?

If you can, talk to someone in your family about this. What do prayers actually ask for? Make a list of your ideas.

You are going to listen to three prayers from three different religions. Look at some of the words on the screen because they explain what the prayers are asking for. Listen to each one for about 5 minutes (or more if you like listening to them!).

An example from YouTube of the Jewish Daily Prayer Adon Olam:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=ls0Wf7hmElg

An example of a famous Hindu morning prayer, the Gayatri Mantra from YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=gKX9SQU_VXM

An example from YouTube of the First Surah, the Opener, used in Islamic Prayer 5 times each day:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=bs8fueRXh64

Now think about the following questions. Discuss them with an adult if you can.

If someone said or sang one of these prayers every day how might it make them feel? Why do you think it matters to believers to make prayer beautiful? What is beautiful about the prayers you have just heard/seen? Which is your favourite? Why? Write your answers in your work book.

 

Physical Exercise – Choose from the list of ideas from Monday, or make up your own workout!

 

Thursday, 14th January, 2021.

There is another Zoom ‘drop-in’ this morning at 9:30. See you there!

Spellings – Here are your new spelling words for this week. They all have the prefix ‘re’. Can you work out what the prefix ‘re’ means?

Write the spelling words into your book, then practise them for 10-15 minutes every day using the spelling strategies that work for you.

Spelling Strategies Powerpoint

 

English – Planning my Months Poem

I hope you managed to collect lots of ideas for your poem yesterday. Today you are going to write the first draft of your own poem. Look at the poem from Monday’s lesson again to see how the poem is arranged.

Weather Poem

There are 12 verses and each verse has two lines. The first word in each verse is the name of the month, so your poem should follow the same structure and layout. The first line of each verse has one or two phrases and the second line has two phrases. Have fun using your ideas sheet to write a two-lined verse for each month. The lines do not need to rhyme. If you can, try to use personification in some of your verses. This is where you make the month seem like it is a person. For example, if I used my ideas for April, I could write:

April plays jokes on us, sunshine and showers,

Easter egg hunting, Happy Birthday to me!

Use the sheet below to write your ideas down, or write them in your book. You can change them as often as you want because this is just your first draft. Experiment with writing your phrases in a different order because sometimes one order sounds better than another. Look at the success criteria, so you can check you have included everything.

English – Months of the Year Poem

Today you are going to write you final version of your poem. Go through your plan from yesterday, using the success criteria to check you have included everything. Read your poem out loud. Does it have a good rhythm? Remember it does not need to rhyme. Check spellings at this point and think carefully about punctuation. Keep looking back at the original poem to help you.

Once you have checked everything and you are happy with your poem, write it into your book as neatly as you can. The title of the poem is simply ‘Months’. Make sure you are setting it out as a poem, not a story. Leave a line between each verse. When you have finished, read your poem aloud to someone in your family.

I would love to read your finished poems, which can be sent to me via e.mail.

 

Maths – Statistics

Complete the work in the Statistics booklet.

 

Quiet Reading – for 20 minutes.

 

Friday Afternoon: This is an opportunity to complete any of the work you have not finished from earlier in the week. Once you have done that (or if you have already completed all this week’s work), treat yourself to Golden Time!

 

PE – Have fun doing some physical exercise this afternoon, too.

 

Thank you for sending your work in. I have loved seeing how you are all doing. Well done for working so hard! I hope you all have a lovely weekend. See you next week.

Take care,

From

Mrs. Charnley and Mrs. Harding

Geography Topic: The United Kingdom – UK Cities

1. Following on from the work we did on Monday, use the map of the UK, or an atlas if you have one at home, to label the cities on the blank map. I have labelled Cambridge already because it is not marked on this particular map. Once you have finished, check your work with the answer sheet.

Prefixes are groups of letters that are added to the front of a word, and change its meaning.

RE: Why do people pray?

Listen to one of your favourite songs. How does the song make you feel? Are you “fans” of anything/anyone? Lots of people like to express praise about someone. We are going to link this with the concept of people wanting to praise God.

Write down the name of your favourite piece of music or prayer and write five words to describe the way it makes you feel. Now read some different prayers from  different faiths:

Prayer Fact Sheets

As you read  each prayer, consider how each one makes you feel. List words to describe your emotions for each one. Compare them to the words you used for your favourite piece of music or prayer.  Are any words the same? Are any different?

Now have a go at writing a prayer of your own. Use one of the three following sheets or design your own page.

My Prayer

 

Friday, 8th January, 2021.

English: Spelling Sentences

Choose 8 of the words from this week’s spelling list and write an interesting sentence for each one. Take time to think of interesting sentences. Don’t just write the first one you think of. Start your sentences in different ways (remember not to start any of them with ‘I’ or ‘My’!) and try to include different sentence types such as statements, questions, exclamations and commands. At least one of your sentences should include speech marks. Take care with punctuation and use your neatest handwriting.

Maths: Time puzzles and games.

Read the times carefully on the Times Patterns Challenge and see if you can work out the missing times.

Time Patterns Challenge

Now have some fun playing the following game:

5 Minute Intervals Game

Play it several times until you are really good at telling the time on the clocks.

 

Quiet Reading for 20 minutes. You could use Oxford Owl or read a book you have at home.

 

Friday Afternoon: This is an opportunity to complete any of the work you have not finished from earlier in the week. Once you have done that (or if you have already completed all this week’s work), treat yourself to Golden Time!

 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. There will be more activities on the website next week, plus details of two drop-in Zoom meetings, on Tuesday and Thursday, where you will be able to see your friends, show some of the work you have done and ask for any help with the work that has been on the website so far. I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible!

Take care,

Mrs. Charnley
