Geography – Locate the Countries

Year 6 have been looking at locating the countries of the world in geography. This included locating the “top” 12 countries in Europe, the “top” 12 countries in North America, all 12 countries in South America, the “top” 12 countries in Asia, the “top” 15 countries in Africa and all the 17 countries in Oceania. After completing all of these, they were challenged to locate the “top” 50 countries on a world map.

Check out this video of Chloe – who was the first to locate all of the given 50 countries correctly on the world map.

(2m was still observed in the filming of this by the use of a, slightly awkward but extra-long, iPad stand).

 

Next up, the capital cities across the world!

History – British timeline

In history, Year 6 have been looking at the bigger picture of British history – eventually creating a scaled timeline. First, we worked out how long ago we needed to start our timelines. The first recorded tool use in hominids (includes modern and early humans) was around 3.4 million years. Using this as our starting point, we found out that the vast majority of “history” was in fact considered “The Stone Age”. We broke the Stone Age in to its three separate periods (Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic) to see how long each of these were too.

This was our first timeline. It was really clear from this the vast extent of the Paleolithic Period. On this timeline, we then worked out when modern humans (Homo sapiens) would fit.

 

Realising that we would need to draw a separate timeline to show the breakdown of Post-Stone-Age Britain (the light blue section of the timeline above), we created a second timeline with a much smaller scale. We then worked out the extent of each period in British history and plotted these onto our second timeline – including some key dates and events. Here are a couple of the “post-Stone-Age Britain” timelines.

Class 4 – Weekly Activities – w/c 01.06

Welcome back. As mentioned before half term, with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 returning to school, we have needed to change the home activity setup slightly. The main difference is that maths, English and a few foundation subjects will be given weekly. You can choose how best to do these throughout the week. This week’s maths is not going to be a full week as we’d already done the first 2 lessons last week; however, it would be good to recap what you did before half term.

 

I have also gathered together some free websites (some do require you to sign up, but all are free) on a range of different subjects. You can use these as extra to the weekly task as you wish.

 

With myself teaching in school throughout the day, it does mean unfortunately I will not be able to respond to emails and questions. However, Mrs Heath has kindly offered to reply to anything you may send in. If you do have any questions, you can continue to send your emails to class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk.

Next week – Returning to school and home activities

As you are aware, following Miss Relph’s update on Thursday, the Government have confirmed that schools are reopening for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 on Monday.

 

Just a specific for those from Class 4 who are returning:
Miss Relph mentioned that school uniform is not a requirement (due to the need for new clothes to be worn each day). It would great if those returning in Class 4 could wear anything suitable for P.E. each day (particularly appropriate footwear) as we won’t necessarily have a set day for P.E. and will be likely to be doing something outside every day.

 

As mentioned before half term, due to this reopening, the home activities will change slightly. The main difference will be that activities will be set weekly – as opposed to daily as previous. Next week’s home activities will be available on the class news from 08:30 on Monday.

Today’s answers and half term

Here are the answers to today’s work:

 

EBM:

 

Year 5 maths:

Here’s the answers to yesterday’s Y5 maths questions:

 

 

 

Year 6 maths:

Here’s the answers to yesterday’s Y6 maths questions:

 

Problems of the day:

 

As you may have seen in yesterday’s letter, with the school potentially reopening for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 on June 1st, the work set via the website is likely to be slightly different to how it is currently. We are yet to decide the best way to keep providing activities for those not in school alongside teaching those who are, but will keep everyone informed.

 

If anyone has any questions/queries, please feel free to email (class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk).

 

I hope you all have a good half term break, and I’m looking forward to seeing the Year 6s when they return.

Handwriting

Here’s another handwriting activity. Copy up the following in your neatest handwriting:

 

The voices continued as Carl carefully pressed down on the handle. At first, he could not see anything – due to the bright light coming from inside the room. Carl’s ears swivelled as his eyes adjusted. Eventually, he could make out the back of Mr Snuffle’s chair and two drooping white ear sticking out above it. Carl could hear the voices much clearer now. Despite the length of the room, he could even make out some of what was being said.

 

“They arrived last night. We need to stop whatever they’re planning!” a hoarse, crackling voice echoed from behind chair. Carl stepped forward to see if he could make out who – or what – Mr Snuffles was talking to. As he stepped forward, his tail swept along behind him, catching the priceless vase resting on the podium behind him. Carl’s years of training meant he had incredible reflexes. He turned quickly his orange paws reaching out to grab the falling vase. The problem was however – in his desperate attempt to stop the vase falling – Carl’s hind paws had made just enough noise to alert Mr. Snuffles. The bright light was instantly extinguished and the voices ceased immediately. The large black turned, and across the vast room, Carl could see the confusion, shock – and the slightest hint of panic – across his boss’s face…

Writing

Here’s another colouring activity. This time you need colour each word based on which word class it could fit in. Some words could fit into more than one class (so you can choose which one) – e.g. Quarrel can be a verb (He is going to quarrel with me) or it can be used as a noun (He and I just had a quarrel).

PDF version word classes

 

Here’s a reminder of each word class:

Nouns are words which are used to identify “things”. Things can be people, places, objects, animals, ideas, feelings.
e.g. The dog from London had hurt its tail when it tried to squeeze through the gap in the fence.

Verbs are words which are used to describe an action, state or occurrence. We usually think of verbs as being actions.
e.g. Several of the chickens had escaped because the boy unfortunately left the gate open.

Be careful though as some words which are sometimes verbs can be used as a noun: e.g. He is going for a run – here, run is being used as noun.
e.g. He is going to run to school – here, (is going to) run is being used as a verb.

Adjectives are words which are used to add extra detail about a noun.
e.g. The blue and white cat jumped over the massive pond.

Adverbs are words which add extra detail about verbs, adjectives or other adverbs.
e.g. The really annoying chameleon walked incredibly slowly towards the fly.

Pronouns are words which replace a noun (you don’t necessarily know what noun the pronoun is replacing unless you have more information).
e.g. He loved playing volleyball whilst she hated it.

Determiners are words which determine which or what noun is being referred to.
e.g. The old man had three dogs, several grey mice, an elephant and this flamingo.

Prepositions are words which describe where something is in relation to something else.
e.g. The cat was hidden inside the bin. She arrived after dinner.

Conjunctions are words which connect ideas or words together.
e.g. Whilst I am swimming, my sister goes to football and tennis.

1.) How would you describe the dog?
2.) How would you describe the shepherd?
3.) What does the shepherd do with the sheep’s wool?
4.) Where does the dog wake up every morning?
5.) When the shepherd is no longer able to sheer the sheep, what happens?
6.) What does the dog try first?
7.) What does the dog work out?
8.) What happens after the dog is able to turn the wool into clouds?

 

History

During the Tudor period, families/houses would have a “coat of arms”. This was often displayed on banners and shields when they went into battle. Here’s are slide from a PowerPoint explaining some of this:

Tudor Knights and Coats of Arms

 

Your task today is to design and draw your own coat of arms. Before you start, here’s some information on Heraldry (the design of coats of arms) including the meanings of some colours, symbols and animals used.

The Language of Heraldry

 

Here’s some templates you could use as a basis for your coat of arms. You don’t have o use these: if you wish, you could draw it all own your own.

Reading

If you’ve missed any of the chapters or want to hear them again, here’s a link to all the previous posts since Easter.

Here is the 1st part of the third chapter of The Graveyard Book. It starts just after yesterday’s ended.

 

 

Here’s some questions about what you’ve just listened to:

1.) According to the start of the chapter, what is there in every graveyard?
2.) How would you describe Miss Lupescu?
3.) What did Miss Lupescu make Bod eat?
4.) What is a Night-Gaunt?

Writing

This week’s writing task (will carry over Monday and Tuesday) is to write your own conversation between Bod and Miss Lupescu. It could carry on the conversation from today’s part of the chapter or it could be a completely new conversation.

Remember, when including direct speech in our writing, we need to remember to punctuate it carefully so that it is clear to the reader who is saying what.

  • Place inverted commas (speech marks) around what is being said
  • Speech should start with a capital letter (unless a sentence has been split – e.g. “We’re going to be late…” she shouted, “if you don’t hurry up.”)
  • Include closing punctuation at the end of our speech (before the inverted comma) – usually it will be a comma, full stop, question mark or question mark; however, as long as the punctuation mark is being used correctly, you can also use dashes, ellipses, semi-colons and colons)
  • If you start with the reporting clause, you should place a comma after it (e.g. She shouted, “We’re going to be late if you don’t hurry up.”

5.) What was odd about Silas’s reaction to Bod’s incident?
6.) At the end of the chapter, what do we find out about Scarlett?

Daily Video

A pre-warning that this video is quite sad.

 

Some questions to get you thinking:
1.) What do you think the girl’s name is? How do you know?
2.) What has happened to the girl?
3.) How does that make her feel?
4.) What does the girl see which makes her want to dance?

6.) What do you think the message is behind this story?

 

History

Henry VIII (Henry the 8th) is perhaps the most famous of Tudor kings. He made lots of changes to England – a lot of which still have impacts on life today. This being said, Henry VIII is most famous for having 6 separate wives. You task in history today is to research and find out some information about each of his 6 wives.

Here’s some ideas to some of the information you could try to find out about each of them:
– What were their names?
– What was order in which he married them?
– What happened to each of his wives which meant Henry was no longer married to them?
– Did Henry have any children with any of his wives? If so, what were their names?
