Class 4 – Remote Learning – 05.03.21

Good morning.

 

Here is your (hopefully last ever!) remote session – as we are back to school as normal on Monday!

 

As mentioned, the plan with our activities over the next week will be to focus on practising key skills to help prepare for the return back to school.

 

Here is a basic overview of the week. As always, you don’t need to follow this if you don’t wish to.

TTRS / Spelling Shed

Today for Spelling Shed and TTRS, we are going to have some Hive Games and Arena matches.

TTRS arena games are going to be tricky, but if as many of you as possible plan to go on the Arena game mode at 11:00, then there should be enough to play games against each other.

 

I have also set up some Hive Games on Spelling Shed – we will start the first of these games at 11:40 and once finished, we will start the next game straight after.
Here are the codes for these games:

Physical Activity

As mentioned last week, we won’t be doing P.E. this week. However, it would be great if you could do some additional physical activity each day.

For your daily physical activity, I would like you to run, cycle or walk every day (it could just be around your garden – even if it’s quite small!). Then, if you could send me in the distance you have completed (it could be an estimate if you’re not sure), that would be great. A picture of you completing your activity would also be great if you can! The recommended daily physical activity for children (aged 6-17) is at least 60 minutes over a whole day, so for this particular physical activity you could aim for at least 30 minutes.

Good morning – and welcome back (…virtually).

 

Your activities will be slightly different this week and next (ahead of a potential return to school on the 8th – depending on what is announced today, of course). The activities over the next couple of week will all be based on thing you have previously learnt and are more like practice (of key ideas) than new learning. The idea behind the change is that these activities  will hopefully help best prepare you to returning back to school as normal. These activities may seem a bit basic  at times, but by practising them over the next couple of weeks, it will hopefully ensure these key ideas are fresh in your head. One really important thing with this is that you read any of the feedback/marking given to your work to make sure you know whether you understand what you are doing.

Please don’t rush through everything as quick as you can!

 

Here is a basic overview of the week. As always, you don’t need to follow this if you don’t wish to.

Here are some optional questions for you to have a go at today after finishing the main activity if you want something a bit more challenging.

Wed 13th Nov 2019 Questions 1 and 2 without bars-merged

 

Sentence / Fragment / Run-on

As we usually do in school, here is a Sentence / Fragment / Run-on task:

The first page is just information / a recap on the difference is between an sentence, a fragment and a run-on.

Sentence, Fragment, Run-on – 10.02

 

English

Over the next couple of days, you are going to write your own non-chronological report. You can use the one you have written about tigers to help structure this one.

 

I’m going to leave the topic of the report completely up to you: you could write one about another type of animal, an area we’ve been learning about over the past few weeks (e.g. ancient Greek gods, particles in physical and chemical changes, ancient Greek) or you could come up with your own idea completely. Whatever you choose, remember you have got to write a report on it, so you need to know the topic quite well.

The first thing you will need to do is plan (and research – if needed) your ideas. The best way to do this is like we did for the tiger report and plan your paragraphs first. You will need a introductory paragraph and a conclusion – and then some (at least 2) other paragraphs

Once you’ve have planned what each of your paragraphs will be about, you can then start writing it.

 

Remember, you have a couple of sessions to do this – so don’t try and rush it: it should be at least a page long! Also remember that once you have finished writing, it is really important you go through and check your writing.

Here is a whole example of the non-chronological report about tigers: Tiger Non-chronological report

Spellings

Here’s your spellings for today: Challenge list 1 – (2)

Our next couple of spelling sessions contain words from a list of commonly misspelt words for year 5/6.

 

Independent Reading

As always you should be trying to read every day. However, as we would usually do after spellings (in school), it would be great if you could spend an extra 30 minutes reading.

 

Music

In music, we are going to build on the work we have been doing on rhythm: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/developing-reading-rhythm-cnj34c

 

Try to make sure you complete the tasks in the video and send them in (as well as completing the quizzes).

 

P.E.

Today, in P.E., we are going to continue our work on triple jumping.

 

As always, we need to make sure we have a safe space and first warm up. Here is a Just Dance video you can use for your warm-up (or you can come up with your own warm-up): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DcGBE-F9hk

 

Before we start our activity, here’s a (very) short video showing the triple jump in full: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvutodRvNLA

 

Your task today is to first complete and measure the distance of 5 separate hops (take off from one foot and land on the same foot). Then, complete and measure the distance of 5 separate “step jumps” (take off one foot and land on the other). Then, complete and measure 5 separate standing long jumps (take off one or two feet and land on two feet). Finally, you need to complete and measure 5 complete triple jumps.

 

Once you have done those, you can then plot your measurements on line graph (like we did last week).

 

As always, please email me (class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk) any question if you are confused with or don’t understand anything.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Art

In art today, you are going to begin designing your actual piece of pottery (hopefully, when we’re back in school, you will then get to make these from clay).

 

 

What you need to today is first decide on what shape you want your pottery to be (yesterday’s WCR may be useful for this) – this would include whether you pottery needs a lid and/or handles. Then you need to decide on what image you want as your main design and finally any repeating patterns you want to add. Today, you are going to draw just the front view of your pottery – so take your time and make sure you draw it big enough to make out the details.

Next week, you are going to draw you pottery from a few other angles.

Here is an example of introductory non-chronological text on tigers.

Before you start writing, here are some tasks for you to complete based on the text above: Introductory Paragraphs – inc Qs

 

Once you have completed these task, you can start writing your own introductory paragraph. Make sure you think about the things we have been learning about in English to help you. As well as writing your introductory paragraph, you will also need to think of a title for your piece of writing.

P.E.

Today, in P.E., we are going to continue the work we were doing on Monday.

First, we need to do a warm-up. If you would like, you could do this Just Dance as your warm-up or you can come up with your own warm-up activity.

 

Before we start, we need to recap an effective long jump technique again.

Hopefully, you should still have your graph from Monday. Don’t worry if you don’t; you could jump, record and plot your standing long jumps again.

 

What you are going to do today is vary the way in which you jump:

  • First, you will need to record and plot 10 jumps where you take off from your right foot.
  • Then, you will need to record and plot 10 jumps where you take off from your left foot.
  • Finally, you will need to record and plot 10 jumps where you have a (short) run up.

It would be best if you could do each of these with a different colour and what you should end up with is a graph with 4 separate line (they may touch/cross) of your different jumps.

Before we start, we need to recap an effective long jump technique. Re-watch last week’s video to help:

 

As always, please make sure you have a safe surroundings. Spend about 5-10 minutes practising your jumping technique.

 

Once happy that you’re ready to start properly. You are going to to need to measure out the distance of your jumps. Don’t worry if you don’t have something to measure with; you can count out your distances using your own feet! You’re going to need to record the distance of 10 jumps – so you will need a pen/pencil and piece of paper to do this.

Once you have done your 10 jumps, I would like you to plot your data as a line graph (which isn’t necessarily the best form of graph for this data, but it will be useful with what we will be doing on Wednesday – so please keep this graph once you have finished). Your 10 jumps will need to go along the x-axis and a scaled distance will need to go along the y-axis.

In art today, we are going to explore typical designs on Grecian pottery. Typically, these will include images of people, gods or monsters. As you should have already noticed, Grecian pottery is usually black and orange – with the image being more of an outline with some simple detail and different shades to add perspective. Here is an example with a hydra as the main design:

 

Your task today in art is to draw your own design/image which could go onto a piece of Grecian pottery. To do this, you could either research and copy a design of an image that you find or you could come up with your own.

Here’s this week’s rough timetable of what this week would look like if we were in school. Again, the amount of work isn’t going to be as much as if we were in school, but you may find it useful to follow. If you’d rather structure your day a different way, please feel free.

Tomorrow, we will have a live session – which will start at 2pm. The session will be more of a social opportunity for whoever wishes to join to get together. It will involve an interactive quiz/task-based competition. If you wish to join, please let me know (class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk), and I will send an email  with an invite tomorrow morning.

Spellings

Here is your spelling activity for today: -tial (2)

It continues with our -tial pattern.

 

Independent Reading

As always you should be trying to read every day. However, as we would usually do after spellings (in school), it would be great if you could spend an extra 30 minutes reading.

 

Music

In music, we are going to build on the work we did last week, on beat and rhythm, to explore basic musical notation in more depth.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/understanding-basic-notation-6rrkcr

 

As this is a practical session, you will need to join along with the video.

 

P.E.

Today, in P.E., we are going to build on what we looked at last session on maximising the distance of our vertical jumping to maxmising the distance of our standing long jump.

First, we need to do a warm-up. If you would like, you could do this Just Dance as your warm-up or you can come up with your own warm-up activity.

Before we staring looking at standing long jump, it would good if we could recap what we did last time with our vertical jumping. Have a watch of the video again and spend about 5 minutes practising your vertical jump technique.

 

Here is a video which discusses an effective standing long jump technique. Have a watch of it. Once you think you’ve got your head around the technique points involved, have a go at jumping yourself. You may want to go back and watch the video a few times in between your jumps. Please make sure you have a safe surroundings before you start!

Again, try and spend about 20-30 minutes doing this – and remember, even though it is very practical, P.E. is a subject like any other and you need to think carefully about what it is you are learning to do.

Spellings

Here’s your spellings for today: -tial (1)

We are moving on from the -cial pattern to look at -tial.

 

Geography

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/tools-of-fieldwork-maps-cnhp8t

Try to make sure you complete the tasks in the video and send them in (as well as completing the quizzes).

 

P.E.

Today, in P.E., we are going to move on from running and start looking at jumping. We are going to first look at the best way we can maximise our vertical jumping technique. Vertical jumping is when we jumping directly up in the air – trying to gain as much height as possible.

First, we need to do a warm-up. If you would like, you could do this Just Dance as your warm-up or you can come up with your own warm-up activity.

 

Before we look at some technique, your first task is to find a safe space with a wall next to. Have a go at jumping (about 10 times) as high as you can, reaching as high up the wall as you can.

 

Here’s a short video to watch on an effective vertical jumping technique:

 

Once you have watched the video (you may want to do this a few times between your jumps), see if you can improve your jumping height by trying some of the technique points above.

 

Try and spend about 20-30 minutes doing this – and remember, even though it is very practical, P.E. is a subject like any other and you need to think carefully about what it is you are learning to do.

 

As always, please email me (class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk) any question if you are confused with or don’t understand anything.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Meeting Larry – Part 2

Today’s live session will start at 2:00pm today. I will send an invite to those that have let me know they want to join at 11am.

 

Handwriting

I remembered to include our handwriting today. Looking at some of the work sent in, I think this is something we need to make sure we practise.

 

For our handwriting session, I would like you to start at the very first page of your reading book and copy what it says. Spend 15-20minutes doing this. Make sure you don’t rush it, but at the same time make sure you spend your time writing – without getting distracted.

 

 

Maths: Reasoning from known facts

Today’s lesson will look at how we can use facts we already know (or have been given to us) to solve problem

TTRS/Spelling Shed

 

 

Today for spelling shed and TTRS, we are going to have some Hive Games and Arena matches.

TTRS arena games are going to be tricky, but if as many of you as possible plan to go on the Arena game mode at 11:00, then there should be enough to play games against each other.

 

I have also set up some Hive Games on Spelling Shed – we will start the first of these games at 11:40 and once finished, we will start the next game straight after.
Here are the codes for these games:
GAME 1: 690518
GAME 2:

Class 4 – 21.01 – Remote Learning

Good morning.

 

Here’s this week’s rough timetable of what this week would look like if we were in school. Again, the amount of work isn’t going to be as much as if we were in school, but you may find it useful to follow. If you’d rather structure your day a different way, please feel free.

Following on from Florence’s question during Friday’s live session, I thought it would be good to try doing a live session more regularly – like last week’s, these will be completely optional. We have another live session planned on Friday – this will hopefully be a lot shorter than last week’s. We will do another session with Larry – so that those that didn’t get a chance last week could do so this week.

 

EBM

Here are some EBM questions for you to have a go at before maths.

EBM – 21.01

 

Maths: Addition and subtraction (multi-step problems)

English – Writing

Given most of us don’t seem quite secure on apostrophes, we are going to continue some work on them.

Here is today’s task: Apostrophe proofread

What you need to do is proofread this piece of writing and correct the mistakes – they are all apostrophes mistakes. Some mistakes are where an apostrophe has been used incorrectly and some are where an apostrophe is missing.

 

Remember, apostrophes are needed to showing missing letters (omission) or to show that something belongs to something else (possession)

 

If you have found you are confident with the first task, here is an extension for you to try:
Apostrophe extension

 

Any questions, please ask.

 

WCR

Here’s the 2nd page of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief p2

Science

In science, we are going to look at what happens to the particles when something “dissolves”.

I would like you to make try and make notes (along with answering the questions in the video) – in a similar way to the work I show you by Meryn and Ollie earlier in the week.

 

Here is your lesson: What happens to particles during dissolving?

English – Writing

Today, we are going to do some more work on apostrophes. Remember, to think careful about the rules for using them. You are going to group some sentences depending on how an apostrophe has been used (or not used).

Apostrophe sorting activity

Any questions, please ask.

 

Spellings

Today, we are going to move to a new spelling pattern: words ending in -cial and -tial – both of which make a “shul” sound. As a general rule, if there is vowel before the sound, a -cial is used – e.g. official. If there is a consonant, then -tial is usually used – e.g. substantial.

Here is today’s spelling task: -cial (1)

 

Independent reading

As always, you should be spending some time every day reading; however, as we would usually do in school after Spellings, it would be great if you spend an extra 30 minutes today reading your own book. If anyone is stuck for reading material, please let me know and I can see what I can do.

 

Music

In music, we’re going to start looking at pulse and rhythm. The lesson also discusses some basic musical notation.

Here is your lesson:

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/understanding-pulse-and-rhythm-c8up2t

This lesson has a main video of learning – as this is a music lesson, it mainly contains practical elements for you to join in with.

 

P.E.

In P.E. today, we are going to build on the work we were doing on sprinting. Today’s task is to try some sprinting drills which help to work on our spiriting form – as a warning, some of these are quite tricky to do, so give it your best shot. Here are your activities:

 

Watch each drill, pause the video and then spend about 10 minutes at trying it.

 

 

 

As always, please email me (class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk) any question if you are confused with or don’t understand anything.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.
