Well I didn’t expect us to be off again so soon, hopefully only for a couple of days.
It will be difficult for you to carry on with some of the work I had planned for you in school but there are elements we can do.
Theme Park Project – Brochure preparation
Most of you have finished your budget and map; the next step is the brochure. Before we can make this you need to develop a logo for your theme park along with your park name.
Make a list of your rides
Select 2-3 rides as your main attractions. What is unique about these rides? How are they themed? Even, sketch part or the full ride.
Draw a visitors map for the park. The layout should roughly resemble your budget map but with a completely different purpose. It should be bold, colourful, creative, eye-catching, and exciting to read.
Complete a review of the book you have most enjoyed reading during lockdown. Please bring this into school to discuss, along with the book, on the day we return (hopefully Wednesday).
Welcome members of class 5 and parents. Well done for all of the effort you put into home schooling prior to the Easter break. This is a challenging time for everyone at the moment which is why I am setting expectations and providing work but accept that not everyone will complete it. All I ask is that you try your best – every home schooling setup is different – do the best you can with who/what you have. On this page you will hopefully find all you need to keep growing your brains whilst at home.
We now embark on a new exciting topic: Allotment! Which as you can probably guess is all about Allotments, but oh so much more. Through this topic you will learn about growing, cooking, composting, being self sufficient, cultivation, land and much more. Also, lets not forget our exciting new class text, Hatchet, that we will be reading together each week…I can’t wait.
I will also be uploading a video for you to watch every Monday morning to set you off on your learning week. In this I will be celebrating work you have sent me and healing with any misconceptions.
It may not be as good as being in school but we owe it to ourselves to do the best we can, with what we have.
START BY LOOKING AT THE GUIDE TIMETABLE and then watching the video on YouTube.
As you are all aware, we have been using ‘White Rose Maths’ materials for the vast majority of the maths homeschooling provision. As of Monday 11th May, WRM are stopping the free access to the independent worksheets. So what does this mean? You will still be able to access the resources because we already subscribe to WRM, but there’s just a small change in where you will find them. Still go onto the WRM page as normal and watch the video, this will remain free and accessible to all. Then instead of downloading the activity by clicking next to the video, visit your classes home learning page,where your teacher will have uploaded the resources for you, and download the day’s activity free from there.
Maths – Summer 1
PLEASE DO NOT START THE FOLLOWING WORK UNTIL 20.03.20 ENJOY YOUR EASTER BREAK!
Every day there is a lesson video available for you to whatch provided by White Rose. We already follow the White Rose scheme of learning at Great Dalby, so this is ideal. The lessons are easy to find, free to access and all have video/audio tuition. Pupils can play the video, pausing and working along with the guidance. Allongside this video there is also an independent activity to complete. I will also place additional differentiated work linked with the objective if you require additional challenge or support.
9:00 – Watch White Rose maths video using a jotter to record working out and notes
9:30 – Move to independent application of learning (pick from the three levels)
9:50 – 10 minutes quick mark and purple polish
10:00 – Finish the maths lesson; take a well earned break
Last week many of you wrote some excellent descriptions of ‘your secret garden’. You could use this setting in your mystery story if you wish. For this week’s write, I would like you to write a short mystery story. I’m not going to be too prescriptive with the features of this write, just consider the following:
Your story should be set in or include a garden/woods/plants
Use the story mountain to ensure it has the correct story structure
Mystery stories must have something to solve/find
A great mystery story will have a twist at the end (the obvious isn’t actually the answer but something else)
Here are some WOW words you may have heard of but maybe wouldn’t think to include them in your writing:
Enchanting – Adjective – delightfully charming or attractive
Dumbfounded – Verb – greatly astonish or amaze
Sombre – Adjective – dark or dull in tone or colour
Suspicious – Adjective – having or showing a cautious distrust of someone or something
Courageous – Adjective – not deterred by danger or pain; brave
Disobedient – Adjective – refusing to obey rules or someone in authority
Scrutinise – Verb – examine or inspect closely and thoroughly
Acknowledge – Verb – recognize the importance or quality of
Spellings Summer 1
Please timatable in a spellings test once a week as you would have in a normal school week. My suggestion would be on a Thursday or Friday, giving you the week to practice. There is a PPT converted to PDF that you can use to learn the rules for each set.
Courtesy of the wonderful Mrs. Allen, please see below topic webs for the next two weeks. These give you an overview of the learning activities for the week. As I know most of you have already being doing, treat each week day like a school day. Maths and English in the morning then widder curriculum (topic/other) in the afternoon. In the afternoon refer to the topic web and select an activity for the afternoon. You may complete it in one afternoon; you may be working on it for a few afternoons; the choice is yours. Enjoy!
