Science: How Shadows Are Formed.

Look at the following PowerPoint carefully and answer any questions by pointing to the correct position on the screen. Then, I would like you to have some fun noticing and creating shadows of your own. Hopefully, it will be sunny so you can go outside with an adult and record the shadows you can see or make. You can use string, wool or chalk (but only if mums and dads say it’s OK!) to show the shape of the shadows. Try making some shadows of yourself in different shapes. Draw the shadows you see on a piece of paper, or take a photo of them to put on the computer. If it is not sunny, try making shadows with a torch in a darkened room. Notice each time, where the shadow is in relation to the object and the light source.

IMPORTANT: NEVER look directly at a light source, especially the sun. It can damage your eyes.

This first lesson of the new RE topic looks at what Christianity is. Read through the powerpoint, then have a go at drawing your own idea of what Jesus might have looked like. There were no pictures of Jesus from the time he was alive, so no-one really knows. You can use the frame I have provided for your picture or you can design your own. Record your decisions about what to include in your picture on one of the activity sheets.

If you prefer to make your own cards, or do it on a computer that’s fine. There is a blank one at the end for you to complete with a mountain of your choice. You could cut the cards out and make them into a pack or display them on a poster.

Following on from your work on favourite authors last week, today I would like you to design a new front cover for one of your favourite books, or for a new book by your favourite author. Have a close look at some of the covers on the books you have at home to see what you need to include. Remember, a new book has to stand out from the crowd, so think about how you could do that before you start. You may want to plan it out roughly before starting the final version.

You can use the template below or design your own, or  do it on the computer.  Remember, you can send your finished designs in on Tapestry if you wish.

RE: Why are the Ten Commandments important to Jewish people?

Following on from last week’s lesson about the Jewish people’s escape from Egypt, this is the story of how Moses received the Ten Commandments from God.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK_FWURMnhU

Once you have listened to the story, have a look at the pictures below. Some of them have the Commandments in simpler language so they are easier to understand. Discuss these with a parent if you can, so that you are sure what each one means.

Ten Commandments Posters

Your task is to design a Ten Commandments poster for children. You can use the ideas from these sheets or come up with your own.  If you wish, you could invent your own Ten Commandments for everybody to follow in order to lead a good life!

Follow the link to the BBC Bitesize lesson. The first activity is a demonstration. There is no requirement for you to make it, but if you want to and your parents agree then that’s fine.

Monday 11th May, 2020.

Spellings for this week:

Homophones

to/two/too
so/sew/sow
by/buy/bye
rain/reign/rein
there/their/they’re

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different spellings and different meanings. It is very important to use the correct spelling when you are writing so that the reader is not confused. Use a dictionary to find the meaning of each homophone. Learning the meaning as well as the spelling is very important this week.

 

Maths: Fractions of Objects

For this lesson you will need to use small objects to ‘act out’ the calculations. You could use counters, buttons, beads, shells or any other small objects you have at home.

Follow the PowerPoint below slowly and carefully, using your small objects to copy the actions on each slide. There are some fraction sharing grids to print off or you could just draw some on a piece of paper.  You do not need to write anything in your book today. The important thing is that you understand the link between calculating fractions of numbers and division.  The colouring slide at the end is tomorrow’s work!

Art: Drawing Fossils

This afternoon, I would like you to have a go at sketching one or more fossils in as much detail as you can. Watch the first 8-10 minutes of the video below. It shows you exactly how to draw an ammonite. You could then watch it again, pausing the video every few seconds to copy what the artist is doing. You do not need to draw the whole thing; just the shell part is sufficient. Once you have done that, you might want to have a go at drawing some of your own fossils or the ones on the pictures below. Remember, look very closely all the time and sketch lightly with a pencil so you can rub out easily if you need to.

Maths: Division with Remainders (revision)

Choose the 1, 2 or 3 star question sheets. Read the problems carefully and answer the questions. Act out the problems or draw pictures if it helps.

Use your times tables to work out the answer, e.g. How many 5s in 19? Say the 5 times table to get as close to 19 as you can without going over it (“One 5 is 5, two 5s are 10, 3 fives are 15″), then calculate the remainder by counting from 15 up to 19 (4). So the answer is 3 remainder 4 (3 with 4 left over).

Once you have completed the questions check your answers.

 

English: Spelling Sentences

Write a sentence for each of this week’s spelling words. Remember to include adventurous vocabulary, different openers, different sentence types (e.g. questions, exclamations), direct speech, conjunctions, adverbs etc… in order to make your sentences varied and interesting.

A big poster with  different sections for each river

A fact-file with a page per river

or any other idea that you wish to do.

The important thing is to make your work informative, eye-catching and colourful. If you can print out some pictures, so much the better.

Maths: Bus Stop Method of Division

Remind yourself how to use this method of division by working your way through the following powerpoint presentations. They guide you through the method step by step, by asking a question at each stage. Answer each question as you go through the slides (you do not have to write anything down at this point). The first powerpoint starts off with 2-digit numbers and the second one progresses to 3-digit numbers.

Formal Written Method Of Short Division 2 Digit Numbers

Formal Written Method Of Short Division 3 Digit Numbers

Once you are confident with the method, try some of the questions from the sheets. You do not need to do all the questions. Do the ones that you know the times tables for. So, for example, if you do not know the 8 times table yet, leave those questions out.

Maths: Division Problems (2-step, with or without remainders).

Try the following word problems. They each have two steps, which means you might have to add or subtract something before you do the division part. Read each problem carefully two or three times so you understand it. Acting it out often helps. Calculate the answer to the first part of the problem before you do the second part. Show both calculations in your book. Make your answer very clear. Remember to use the bus stop method of division.

Division Word Problems 2 Step

If you have time today (or any other day!) play the game below. It’s lots of fun and the more you play it, the better you will be at division with remainders.

English: Reading Comprehension

Please read the poem, The Owl and The Pussycat and answer the questions.  Read it several times until you are really familiar with it before starting the questions. There are two ways you can do this comprehension:

  1.  Answer all the questions in the booklet, then check the answers using the powerpoint or the mark scheme below.
  2.  Answer one question at a time, using the helpful hints on the powerpoint. Each question has a slide with information boxes that tell you what type of question it is and what you need to do to find the answer. Immediately after that, it gives you the answer, so be careful not to move on to the next slide until you have written your answer.

(The question numbers start at 29 because this is the last part of a three part assessment.)

IMPORTANT: Take your time and read everything very carefully. Remember, slow and steady wins the race!
