Reading - Monday 11th October

Full Stops - Today you will be working on 'Nature Trail' by Benjamin Zephaniah.

Benjamin Zephaniah, a British poet, has been inspired by his Jamaican heritage to create musical and rhythmic poetry. Zephaniah is a performance poet who enjoys touring all over the world to perform his poems to live audiences and for television audiences. The poetry he has created for children is popular for its strong rhythm and humour while still conveying important messages. 'Nature Trail' has a sing-song rhythm and describes the animals Zephaniah observes in his garden, finishing with a reflection on the importance of gardens and nature in people's lives.

Read the text and answer questions 1, 2 and 3. 

Question Marks - Today you will be working on 'Aesop's Fables' by Aesop.

'Aesop's Fables' are a collection of short stories which contain a moral message. They are credited to Aesop, who is said to have been a slave who lived in Ancient Greece around 600 BC. However, it is possible that these stories have come from various sources and that they have just been attributed to Aesop - some scholars even dispute his existence.

Exclamation Marks - Today you will be working on 'Why Recycle?' 

In the last 15 years, levels of recycling in the UK have increased significantly, but the average UK household still recycles less than 50% of its waste. Waste that isn't recycled is either sent to landfill or incinerated, both of which have serious environmental consequences. This text explains how waste damages the environment and how recycling can help reduce levels of waste. Do you think recycling is important and what do you recycle at home?

Commas - Today you will be working on 'Born on a Blue Day' by Daniel Tammet.

As well as suffering from Asperger's syndrome, Daniel Tammet has savant syndrome, a rare condition in which individuals with serious mental disorders show remarkable abilities in a specific field, often either art, music, calendar calculation, mathematics, or spatial skills. Like Daniel, around fifty per cent of people with savant syndrome suffer from an autism spectrum disorder, although savant syndrome also occurs in individuals with other developmental or neurological disorders.

English - Monday 11th October

Today you will be extending sentences by using a wider range of conjunctions. 

Read 'Grammar and Punctuation PowerPoint Part 3' to remind yourself about simple, compound and complex sentences. Take a look at 'Using a Range of Conjunctions'. Which type do you think you use most often in your writing? Use a copy of your short story from last week and highlight the conjunctions in two colours depending on the type. What do you notice? Do you use a wide range or just a few conjunctions? Do you tend to use more coordinating or subordinating? Have a go at underlining main clauses and circling subordinate clauses. Is there a pattern in your writing? 

Arithmetic - Monday 11th October

Group 1 - Today you will be finding lines of symmetry.

Draw a square and a vertical line of symmetry. You could put a mirror along this line, and it would show the other half of the shape. Draw a square with a line of symmetry in a different place. Cut out and fold your squares to check. 

Group 2 - Today you will be doubling and halving multiples of 100.

On a piece of paper write and answer the following questions:

  • Double 100 = 
  • Double 200 = 
  • Double 300 =
  • Double 400 = 
  • Double 500 = 
  • Double 600 = 
  • Double 700 = 
  • Double 800 = 
  • Double 900 = 
  • Double 1000 = 

Repeat, this time halving multiples of 100. Remember that when the 100s digit is odd, the calculation is a little trickier and there will be a 50 in the answer. 

  • Half 100 = 
  • Half 200 = 
  • Half 300 = 
  • Half 400 =
  • Half 500 = 
  • Half 600 = 
  • Half 700 = 
  • Half 900 = 
  • Half 1000 = 

Group 3 - Today you will be doubling numbers to 100.

Work with somebody at home. One of you shuffles a set of 10s cards and the places them in a pile face down while the other shuffles a set of 1s cards and places them in a pile face down. Say 'go' and you both turn over your top card to create a 2-digit number. Work together to double this 2-digit number. How many can you double in a minute? Shuffle the cards and have another go. Did you double more the second time? 

Group 4 - Today you will be describing 2D shapes. 

Here is a Game Shape Board. Choose three shapes. For each one, write at least 5 facts about it. Include information about regular/non-regular, number of vertices/sides, number of right/obtuse/acute angles, lines of symmetry etc. Remember that a polygon only has straight sides, so a circle, oval and semi-circle are not polygons but are 2D shapes. Ask somebody at home to secretly choose a shape from the board. Your task is to work out which one they have chosen by asking questions about its properties - the can only answer 'yes' or 'no'.

English - Tuesday 12th October

Today you will be using a range of conjunctions.

Read the instructions that explain how to play 'Liar! Liar!' Here are the game cards. Play the game with somebody at home. 

Arithmetic - Tuesday 12th October

Group 1 - Today you will be working on 2D shapes.

Play 'Odd One Out' with somebody at home. Ask them to choose and then show you four of the 2D shape cards. Which is the odd one out? Write the names of the four shapes on a piece of paper and circle the odd one out. Repeat with other shapes. 

Group 2 - Today you will be working on the 3 times table.

Write down the 3 times table, E.g. 1 x 3 = 3, 2 x 3 = 6, 3 x 3 = 9, and so on. 

Group 3 - Today you will be doubling and halving numbers to 100.

You will need somebody at home to play this game with. Start by drawing a blank 0-200 number line on a piece of paper. The first player takes a 0-9 dice and rolls it twice to generate a 2-digit number. You can choose to either double or halve it. Mark where you number goes on the number line. Your partner will do the same. Keep doing this - the first to get 5 numbers without your partner's numbers in between wins. 

Group 4 - Today you will be finding lines of symmetry. 

Draw as many shapes as you can in three minutes with only one line of symmetry. Repeat, drawing as many shapes as you can with at least 2 lines of symmetry in five minutes.

  • One good turn deserves another. 

Exclamation Marks - Today you will be working on 'Why Recycle?'

Write a paragraph explaining whether reading the text has affected your views on recycling. If you didn't think recycling was important, has reading the text changed your view? Why/why not? If you already regarded recycling as important, has the text given you a better understanding of why it matters?

Today you will be using relative clauses beginning with 'who', 'which', 'where', 'why', 'whose', 'that' or with an implied relative pronoun.

Start by reading the Grammar and Punctuation PowerPoint, where you will find out about relative clauses. Rudyard Kipling often wrote in extended complex sentences, using embedded clauses, to add detail and humour. 

Use the sheet 'Embedding Relative Clauses'. Rewrite each sentence, adding an embedded clause. 

Arithmetic - Wednesday 13th October

Group 1 - 

Group 2 - Today you will be working on the 6 times table. 

Your task is to make up a poem to help you to remember the 6 times table. For example:

1 x 6 is 6, pick up sticks,

2 x 6 is 12, sit on the shelf,

3 x 6 is eighteen, we love baked beans

Practise saying the rhyme out loud and then ask somebody at home to video you performing it and then to email it to me. 

Group 3 - Today you will be working on bar charts.

Here is a bar chart that shows types of pizzas sold. Talk to somebody at home about what it shows including how many of each pizza were sold. How can you work out how many pizzas were sold altogether? Which type of pizza was twice as popular as another? Now have a go at drawing your own graph where tice as many cheese and tomato pizzas where sold as tuna and sweetcorn and twice as many pepperoni pizzas were sold as ham and pineapple. There should still be a total of 20 pizzas.

Can you think of some words to describe the environment near or around our school where plants and animals live? Write down some of the words that you can think of. Is the environment near our school like the pictures on the slides

Year 5 - On the 'Comparing Life Cycles' sheet, read the descriptions of the two life cycles of two similar animals from different environments. Highlight or underline the similarities in one colour, and differences in another. In the space provided, write a description of the differences between the life cycles of the two animals, giving reasons for those differences such as environmental factors.

Year 6 - Choose one of the environments shown on the slides to research using books, atlases, and the internet. Based on this research, produce a display on paper, featuring descriptions of the conditions of the environment, some of the animals that live in it, their life cycles, and the ways in which these differ from our local environment. You may include pictures, lists, facts, diagrams, graphs, and tables of data in your display. The Challenge Card includes some questions to help you.
