WEEK COMMENCING 18TH MAY 2020

Good day my mighty warriors! This week we will be looking at the Mighty, Fearsome and Rotten Romans! As you know the Romans are part of our history as they tried to conquer England many years ago, we will have a look at their architecture and even their daily lives.

Maths

As you know, we are still using WhireRose Maths, and below I have attached the weekly documents for the children. Please be aware that the Year 3s and Year 4s will be using the Zip files accordingly. If you have any difficulties opening these files, please contact me so that I can personally send you a varient of them.

 

Calling all Timestables Rockstars!

We have received an interesting preposition from the Guinness Book of world records : "We got in touch with GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS about how fast some of our times tables rockers are getting. After some conversations they have created a new title - "the highest score achieved on ‘Times Tables Rock Stars in one minute!".

 

I would love to see each and every Heron attempting their highest score on TT Rockstars this week, I am keeping n eye weekly on who is still regularly practicing online.

 

Literacy

As we are immersing ourselves into the world of The Romans, our Literacy and Non-core will interlink a bit. Please feel free to use any roman resources given to try assist your Literacy and to give your character a bit of depth... We will be writing a diary entry as a person living in Roman times, get creative! Your options could include Roman soldiers, emperor/ empress, slaves, scholars (the educated people), priests or even a simple merchant, traveller or song writer.

 

Monday- plan your own diary entry on your character, what do you want to happen during the day? Remember a diary entry is personal, usually uses emotions and personal thoughts, and tells us about occurrences in your life. Your diary entry may occur in one day or over a few, but try be as creative ( and realistic) as possible. I have attached a diary entry PDF and a workplan to assist how to set out your plan, this document also gives you ideas on how to improve your story by using things like Fronted Adverbials and different conjunctions. Please feel free to use different diary entry plans if your child wishes.

 

Tuesday- Write up the start of your diary entry, remember it is a personal and private diary that is written by a Rotten Roman. Tell us possibly about what happened previously ( to give background), or what happened in your morning. Try to use detail and discritpive language.Remember to use your plan from yesterday to guide your writing. If possible, try to include at least 1 ENP, speech and 1 pronoun.

 

Read your first paragraph to a family member aloud and see if you need to change anything in your sentences to help with spellings and structure. 

 

Wednesday- Write your build up, or afternoon, of your diary entry. How did the morning make you feel? Who is with you in the afternoon? What kind of activity could you possibly be doing in the afternoon? As a challenge, include 3 different kinds of conjunctions, 2 prepositions and Question/ Exclamation marks.

 

Read your second paragraph to a family member aloud and see if you need to change anything in your sentences to help with spellings and structure. 

 

Thursday- Write your conclusion, end of your day, and don`t forget to sign off your dairy entry. Tell us what happened at the dinner table,Who was visiting or even what fun things your family might have gotten up to. 

 

Read your first paragraph to a family member aloud and see if you need to change anything in your sentences to help with spellings and structure. 

 

Friday- Read through your diary entry on your own, try to check if your sentences make sense and if your spellings are correct using a dictionary. Using the skills you learnt this week from the SPaG activities, see if you can "uplevel" any of your sentences. Try use pen so that I can see where you have improved your sentences. 

 

SPaG

As we have been learning quite a few different skills across the year like ENPs, Conjunctions, pronouns, speech and prepositions. I thought we can use some "uplevelling" challenges that will practice these skills. Please complete 1 of these 3 challenges on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

 

On Tuesday I thought the kids may enjoy a little game I found, it is called Gem finder, and the children will use their grammar skills to complete the challenge. Please use the following link to access the game, it doesn`t save the game so please be aware of this.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/games/embed/crystal-explorers?exitGameUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fbbc.com%2Fbitesize%2Farticles%2Fzbm8scw

 

On Thursday I have included another game, this one is called Adjective detective, please complete only 2 levels and enjoy! The link is https://www.childrensuniversity.manchester.ac.uk/learning-activities/languages/words/adjective-detective/

 

Non- core

Monday- ROmans were sneaky and sometimes had to write secret messages. MAybe it was an invitation to a secret part, or a love note, or even better... a plan to overthrow the Emperor! Using the following video, make your own secret message from your character in Roman times, I would love to see a photo of your secret message, or of you working on the task.

ps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAToMCBcbwo&feature=youtu.be&list=PLC02CFDE5690E4010

Secret messa

Tuesday- Romans believed in many different mythical creatures, it may be a centaur, a gorgon or even a sphynx! Use your own imagination and make a painting, or picture of your own mythical creature. Mythical creatures can be based off of real animals, where you use parts of their bodies ( like the tail of a scorpion), or completely made up! I have included a document with pictures of mythical creatures to help you with some inspiration.

 

Wednesday- As we are turning into Romans, we each need our own family shield and crest. Use some creativity and make your own Roman shield for your character from your diary entry. Feel free to use different ways to make your shield, but I have attached a website to help you make a real one, if you want.

https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/kids/how-to-make-a-roman-shield

 

Thursday- Using the following links, research 5 different roman buildings, write a short description of each, when it was built,why they were used and who used the buildings in Roman times. If you would like you can possibly sketch or even take photos of the building and attache it to each building.These resources can also be used to look at Roman life to help give your character some depth

Some of the amazing work that has been shared by the children

Week commencing 20.04.2020

Good afternoon everyone, I am missing you all greatly and I hope you have enjoyed your break over Easter. Below is a little challenge to allow you to focus on all of the things we are grateful for:

 Be ‘present’ a well-being challenge:

An easy way to feel calm and focused is to play a game where we teach ourselves to appreciate what’s surrounding us at any one time.

1) Take a piece of paper and pencil and find a comfortable space to sit in – either indoors or outdoors.

2) Close your eyes and take a few minutes to think about all the things you can sense, like taste, touch, smell, and hearing.

3) When you open up your peepers, write down five things you can see, four things you can touch, three things you can hear, two things you can smell and one thing you can taste.

You can ask your family to do this one with you, too, and compare lists at the end to see all the different things you noticed between you!

 

 

Times tables rock stars update. 

In order to ensure that you are getting full coverage of all times tables, I have set times tables rockstars to a schedule that will change weekly. The schedule is similar to the order that we took your times table tests in during Autumn term. I have set the rota for roughly 5 weeks and then it should go back to asking you all of the times tables. Once we have done this, I will assess again. 

 

Literacy

Below is a document explaining exactly what to do for Guided reading, PE, Literacy and Spellings for the week. It is Labelled as  English Summer 1. All other resources are also below

 

Maths

I would like you to try create a bar graph using information from your family. Ask as many people as you can what their favourite pet would be, using Purplemash create a bar model and upload it onto your site. The best option would be is to first gather all of the information, and then to add it into the bar graph.

 

We all need a bit of focus on time, as a challenge see if you can complete https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/interactives/24484.html

 

And for Directionality I have included a task labelled as 2Go-Directionality. Have yourself a challenge and see if you can complete the task.

Week 4 Literacy challenge- Lets see who can complete the challenge!

Week Commencing 06.04.2020

 

Happy Easter Everyone!

 

I was thinking of a few activities that could  allow everyone to have a fun-filled week, including a few things for Easter.

 

Due to it being Easter, I thought some cooking might be fun.

 

First ActivityHot Cross Buns
To Make some Hot-cross buns,  a great start would be is to make an ingredients shopping list ( to see if you need anything ), and then to write up an instruction on how you made the hot-cross buns. ( I would truly enjoy seeing some photos of the final product as well ).

 

Second Activity: Pictures for Children in Hospital

We have been contacted and asked to send some beautiful and colourful pictures to NHS Nightingale hospital. This will help cheer up all of their patients.

Your artwork needs to please be A4 so that it can be laminated for health purposed.

 

The completed picture can be posted to:

Rainbows for Nightingale

59 Sutherland Grove

London

SW18 5QP

 

Or email them to the school office

 

Third ActivityFinger Knitting / Gardening / Easter Wreath

As we are at home, this is the best time to learn a few skills we might not learn everyday! I would love for you to teach the children a basic skill they will could use for the rest of their lives. I have thought of three activities, feel free to choose one  ( Or more! ) and send photos of your final product.

- finger knitting https://www.thecrafttrain.com/finger-knitting-for-kids/ ) is a great idea to teach children basic knitting skills.

- do some gardening where your child will need to plant, water and care for a plant for the rest of the month ( maybe give them a dairy or schedule to fill in as they go ).

- teach your child how to make a flower arrangement or Easter Wreath ( and use it in your home ).

 

Fourth ActivityBuild a Pillow/Blanket Fort

Using some initiative and creativity, build a pillow and blanket fort! Use it for the day to play board games with family and just to make some memories. Have some time and how high, or how far you can build your fort, maybe it can even go across rooms! Maybe try draw your fort and upload that onto Purplemash for all of us to see.

 

Fifth ActivityMaths on the Move

The children need to complete The Maths on The Move challenge card, try to see how many of the challenges you can complete by the end of the week.

 

 

Lastly children, have a wonderful Easter, enjoy the chocolate and I hope to see you soon.

 

 

 

Mrs Absalom

Maths

In Maths we will be revisiting ideas and concepts for Fractions. Every day it would be a great idea to do a 5 minute starter using the Fraction Wall on Purple Mash, This will assist the children in understanding how many pieces is required for a whole.

 

Every day the children will need to do TimesTables Rockstars, a good idea would be for the children to challenge one another in duels.I will be checking weekly log-ins, as we have before.

 

Please follow this link, watch the video and complete the task (no peeking at the answers before!  It won't help your learning!)  I know we have covered some of this but it will be good to re look at it.  Please focus on completing lessons 6-10
