'Just So Stories' by Rudyard Kipling was published after 'The Jungle Book'. They are origin stories - fictional accounts of how things came to be. Watch this video - How the Whale got his Throat

Group A - Create a mind map about 'How the Whale got his Throat'. Write the title of the story in the middle of your page and record the characters and setting of the story. 

Groups B and C - Read 'How the Camel got his Hump'. Create a mind map about this story. Write the title of the story in the middle of your page and record information about the following:

  • Characters and Setting
  • Language used - think about rhyming, alliteration, repeated words and phrases, nonsense words

Group D - Read both 'How the Camel got his Hump' and 'How the Rhinoceros got his Skin'. Create a mind map that compares both stories. Record information about the following:

  • Characters and Setting
  • Language used - think about rhyming, alliteration, repeated words and phrases, nonsense words 

Arithmetic - Monday 4th 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 telling the time.

You will need somebody at home to play this game with you. Close your eyes while your partner shows a time on this analogue clock. When they have done, open your eyes and take a look. Write down the time on a piece of paper. Repeat this ten times. 

Group 3 - 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, this time drawing as many shapes as you can with at least 2 lines of symmetry in five minutes.

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'. 

Maths - Monday 4th October

Year 5 - Today you will be adding using the 'counting on' strategy with number lines.

Year 5 Maths Lesson 1

Here are some 2D shape cards. Ask somebody at home to choose one of the cards without showing it to you and to give three clues about the shape. Your task is to draw the shape that you think it is. Check with your partner. Repeat, but this time you choose a card and your partner has a go at drawing the shape. 

Groups 3 and 4 - Today you will be working on bonds to 100.

Year 6 Maths Lesson 6

Reading - Wednesday 6th 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.

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

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? 

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

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.

You will then further practise the words by finding the rhymes and rewriting the rhyming words. The letters 'a' and 'c' are both drop-on letters. 

Arithmetic - Thursday 7th October

You have had a go at three different arithmetic activities this week. Today I would like you to choose the one that challenged you the most and have another go at it. If you want to, you can also have a look at the activities that other groups have done and choose one of those instead.

PSHE - Friday 8th October

Today you will be considering the things that all children need in order to be able to learn. 

Remember what we talked about last week when we were thinking about refugees. Can you remember what a refugee is? Think about some of the issues that a refugee might face when coming to live in a new country. Share your ideas with somebody at home. Imagine that they are in a new school. What might prevent them from learning? Would these be the same things that could prevent us from learning? 

On a piece of paper, write a list (1-5) of the most important things that you need in order to help you learn. 

History - Friday 8th October

Today you will be finding out about the Viking invasions of Britain. 

Can you remember how many kingdoms there were in England in the 8th century? There were seven kingdoms. This meant seven kings who were constantly trying to gain power and fend off the Britons. However, in 793 the Vikings invaded England and began a new period in British history. Read the slides to find out more. 

Year 5 - Imagine that you are able to interview an Anglo-Saxon to find out how he feels about the Viking invasions and what they plan to do to protect themselves. Write a list of questions that you might ask. Repeat for interviewing a Viking.

Year 6 - You are going to be learning a song showing the Viking invasions from both the Anglo-Saxon and Viking point of view. Listen to the song - the lyrics are on the Viking Song Sheet. Have a go at singing along to the Viking Backing Track. Whose side are you on?
