Home Learning:

Welcome back to home learning for the next two weeks. Below is a number of activities/websites to explore while you are isolating to ensure that learning will be kept up to date, in line with our planning and we will be ready to carry on as normal on the 1st October. For now there are enough activities to keep you busy for the next few days as we are still hoping to use Google Classroom in the near future...


Maths - 

follow the link/copy and paste into your browser. Our current topic is Reasoning with large whole numbers. Start with lesson 1 and try to complete at least 1/2 lessons a day.



Lesson 4 - exploring pronouns.



Suffixes: -tion / -cian / -sion / -ssion, Lessons 1 and 2


History: This week would have seen you create Victorian fact files about life as a child in the Victorian times. Therefore we would like you to design either a fact file or a poster detailing all the information you have learned so far regarding what life was like for a child back then. Include information about both a rich and poor child, school life, work life and their home life. Make it as colourful and interesting as possible. I can't wait to see them!




Tuesday 22nd September:

English - Oliver Twist narrative writing. Lesson 1 and lesson 4. This links to our Victorian Topic so use your previous knowledge when describing settings and characters. 


Maths - Continue with the lessons set yesterday. Try and complete 2 if you can. 


Science - Lesson 1 and 2. 

Task 1- First follow this link and learn about each stage

Your task is to draw a water coloured/colouring pencil diagram of the stages of a strawberry plant reproducing without seeds

Task 2- To research here,to%20grow%20from%20a%20seed.&text=When%20the%20pollen%20reaches%20another,by%20animals%20or%20the%20wind

 about pollenation, fertilisation, germination and seed dispersal and design a poster about this cycle that explains what happens at each of the stages. 


Spelling - Continue and revise lesson 1 and 2 from yesterday as well as the work set on spelling shed.


Grammar - Lesson 2: Expanded Noun phrases. 

Wednesday 23rd September

We are pleased to confirm that Google Classroom is now up and running and you should have received an invite to join. Letters were sent yesterday. For those having issues or not able to access it then the same work will be put up on the website and any completed work can be brought in when we return. 


 Maths - 


Complete lesson 5 and 6 on the computer. Then there are 3 worksheets for you to try, all increasing with difficulty. First try the worksheet named 'Round to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000' to start you off. If you cant do it on the word document then a piece of paper will suffice. The second sheet is the blank rounding large numbers. Ask your parent/carer to write a number in the boxes provided and your job is to round them to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000, and 100000! Again if you cant complete it on the word document a piece of paper will suffice. Finally your challenge is to try to complete the jigsaw. If you have a printer print it out, cut it out, mix it up and put back together. If you don't you can make your own rounding jigsaw for your parents to put together. 

Mental Arithmetic - Long Multiplication

1) Read the powerpoint and write out the question and answers as you go...
2) Answer the multiplying madness worksheet
3) Read the Grid method worksheet and answer the questions.
Challenge: Can you explain how to use both methods to answer 57x42?  Show your working as you would when journaling. 
Challenge 2 can you write your own questions using 100's (eg 324x22) and answer them choosing your desired method or both.

GPS - Types of nouns 

Revise the powerpoint attached (5HS did this in class last week). Make a list of concrete, proper, abstract and collective nouns. If you are using the worksheet in word highlight the correct nouns and say which colour is which, if you are not using word write out each sentence and underline the different nouns in coloured pencil then draw a key underneath to show which colour is each noun.

Thursday 24th September

Maths - 

Can you draw your own place value chart on a piece of paper to start. This will help you with the lesson. Complete the online lesson and the worksheet.


GPS - Today we are going to explore the importance of fronted adverbials. This will help in particular with your story writing. Complete the lesson online, this will help you remember what a fronted adverbial is and when you use it (at the start of sentences!!!) Then complete the worksheet highlighting the fronted adverbials.


Art - Can you make as many shades of one colour as you can on paper or in a notepad. Investigate how you could subtly change the colour? Today can you practise drawing and colouring landscapes in the style of David Hockney. Look at the powerpoint and explore how you think he went about creating each of the landscapes. What medium did he use? How did he create the colours? What kinds of colours does he use? Does he use a range of colours? What about texture (e.g. does he draw each leaf in a tree or each stone on a path). 
Activity: Choose one of his landscapes, observe it accurately and recreate it as closely as you can. 
It is up to you which picture you draw. If you want to challenge yourself choose one you think looks difficult. If you want to do two and start with an easier one and progress to a harder one then that is ok.
