WB 20/07/20
 
I can't believe that we are in the final week of term. It has been a strange one! I just wanted to say a huge thank you for being such a great class. You have been amazing. I am really looking forward to seeing you all again in September. 
 
Have a great summer everyone. For the last time, please find below your tasks for this week.
 
I thought I'd share Josh's limerick. It made me laugh.
 
The last few months of this school year, whatever I’ve learnt is unclear.
It’s been no fun,
homeschooling with Mum.
Thank God end of term is near!

Maths session 1 20/07/20

Arithmetic

Today, I would like you to have a go at the arithmetic paper that you would have taken at the end of year 5. Don’t worry too much about a time limit; I would prefer at this stage to know what you can do and what you are finding more tricky.

Remember to work through slowly and check as you go – you don’t have a time limit so you can be really careful.

Once you have finished, you can mark using the mark scheme. It would be really useful to me if you could let me know how you got on and the areas that you found more difficult.

Maths session 2 21/07/20

Reasoning

Today, I would like you to have a go at the reasoning paper that you would have taken at the end of year 5. Don’t worry too much about a time limit; I would prefer at this stage to know what you can do and what you are finding more tricky.

Remember to work through slowly and check as you go – you don’t have a time limit so you can be really careful.

Below is some terminology that you may have to refer to but hopefully you will already know the meanings of these words.

Perpendicular – A line meeting another line at a right angle (90 degrees)

Parallel – A line that runs alongside another line with the same distance continuously between them; they will never meet.

Regular shape – A shape that has all the same length sides and angles.

Obtuse – An angle larger than 90 degrees

Acute – An angle less than 90 degrees

Reflex – An angle larger than 180 degress

180 degrees  =  Angle on a straight line or internal angles of a triangle

 360 degrees  - A full circle or internal angles of a quadrilateral

Maths lesson three 22/07/20

 

In this lesson, I would like you to practise your problem and solving and reasoning skills with two activities. When solving them, try to think of a systematic (a system) to ensure you have all possibilities.

Maths lesson four 23/07/20

 More problems to solve

English lesson one

The Lost Keys of Kabaz.

This week, you are going to write an adventure story. There will be a main character (hero) who will be sent on a quest.

In this session, I would like you to read my story. The story involves the hero Arkansaw who has been sent on a quest to recover the lost keys of Kabaz.

TASK 1 – Read the story and highlight any sections/vocabulary that you like (or would like to magpie later)

TASK 2 – Answer the viper questions using the text.

English lesson two

Semicolons, sentence openers and complex sentences.

First, I would like you to watch the clip below which explains how to use a semicolon to link sentences together.

 https://www.khanacademy.org/humanities/grammar/punctuation-the-colon-semicolon-and-more/introduction-to-semicolons/v/introduction-to-the-semicolon-the-colon-and-semicolon-punctuation-khan-academy

Because the video is American, instead of using the term full stop, they use the term period – these mean exactly the same.

Also, more often than not you would replace the conjunction that is linking the sentences with a semicolon e.g.

  1. The cave was pitch-black so you could not see your hand in front of your face.

If you take-out the conjunction so and replace with a semicolon it becomes…

The cave was pitch-black; you could not see your hand in front of your face.

 

Notice you do not need a capital letter after a semicolon as you would if you used a full stop.  

 

In this lesson, I would like you to complete the SPAG activities I have attached.

English lesson three

Boxing up.

Next, use the boxing up frame to help you plan your version of the story. Remember it is your version but you can magpie as much as you like from the text and use the same structure if you wish.

Remember, this is planning. Only make notes and jot down sections from the text you wish to magpie.

Tomorrow, you will write your story.
