Reading - Class Novel - Reading for Pleasure: 

I am going to try to record myself reading to you as I would normally do in class of our class novel, I have uploaded the first 5 chapters of the story. I have also attached some extra VIPERS questions for the class novel if you have finished the other reading work. In year 6, we have a reading lesson everyday so if this seems a lot just try your best - even if it is just listening to the story for enjoyment more than anything else.

Activities from the powerpoint uploaded separately.

Maths - Statistics - With Mr Bowden

Statistics is the study of graphs and tables. We will be looking at interpreting pictograms, and bar graphs as well as comparison, sum and difference this week to access the mearning materials click on the links below

The video sessions are the same slides which will be used in the online lesson with a commentary. Children should complete all the work on the work slides in their Maths book. Time should be taken over completing tables as shown in the live lesson to keep work neat and tidy. Pencil should be used to draw tables and charts. Rulers should be used for straight lines. If you haven't got a ruler use a straight edge such as the side of a book. School can provide a ruler if required. When you have completed the work upload onto dojo and we will take a look.

Food Technology:

We were going to taste examples of Greek food within class for example: hummus, pitta bread, tzatziki dip, stuffed vine leaves, olives and baklava. In absence of this, think of the food that you eat regularly or have tried which originate from Southern Europe e.g. pasta, pizza, paella, tapas dishes and Greek food (gyros – chicken/lamb kebabs). Could you have a go a making any and send us in a picture? If not, create a poster about the famous food that have originated from the countries.

 

Reading:

Our class novel during these weeks will be the book Holes by Louis Sachar. Read the first 3 chapters (this is only up to page 5 on the attached PDF) and answer VIPERS questions. Write the question and the answers in your books. For prediction, inference and explanation questions use the structure of point and evidence which you have been taught in class, these questions are expected to be longer answers compared to retrieval and vocabulary question.

January 2021 Lockdown – Home learning for years 5/6

Hi everyone,

Due to staffing requirements, in order to educate children both in school and a home. Year 5 and Year 6 will be forming a learning group. We have taken objectives from both year groups to combine subjects. The topics we will be covering over the next 6 weeks are:

Maths – Shape and statistics

Reading/Writing – Year 6 had voted to begin reading the book Holes by Louis Sachar as their class novel. This is a text which is applicable for years 5/6. In addition, we will be supplementing this with reading lessons based around our science (biology) topic of living things and famous scientists. In writing, we will be covering biographies and non-chronological reports.   

Geography/Science/History/RE – We are going to continue with what would have been our topic for this term and focus on the continent Europe. Here we will combine our geography objectives: lines of latitude, compass bearings, grid references, climate zones, time zones and biomes with biology. In biology we will learn how Native animals from the different areas within Europe have adapted to their habitats. We will be comparing and contrasting native animals from Europe with native animals from the UK. Given time, we may also study historical periods in Britain and Europe concentrating on comparing religions.

Art: We have chosen to study two significant European artists, Kandinsky and Hilma Af Klint. Both of their most famous works have a theme which links with our maths.

Resources:

Work should be completed in the exercise books provided, we would appreciate if you could upload work to Class Dojo Portfolio on a daily basis and your child’s class teacher informed regarding progress through Class Dojo messaging.

If you require any resources or stationary so that you can fully access the lessons please contact us via Class Dojo messages.

We are here for help and support, please do not hesitate to contact us if you needed.

Mr Bowden, Miss Davies and Mrs Bayliss.
