Reading - Monday 1st November

Full Stops - Today you will be working on 'Bill's New Frock' by Anne Fine. 

'Bill's New Frock' centres on Bill, a boy who wakes up one morning to find out that he has turned into a girl. In his day living as a girl, Bill is frustrated to discover the many ways in which girls are treated differently to boys. Anne Fine wrote 'Bill's New Frock' following research she conducted in schools, which showed that teachers often treat boys and girls differently (e.g. not expecting girls to be interested in adventure books).

Question Marks - Today you will be working on 'An Interview with Jacqueline Wilson'. 

Jacqueline Wilson, born in 1945, is a very popular children's author. A former British Children's Laureate, it is likely that you will have heard of her and will be familiar with her books. She addresses challenging issues in her books, such as children in care in 'Tracy Beaker', and mental illness in 'The Illustrated Mum' - two of her books which are mentioned in the interview. Tracy Beaker is probably her best-known character, and you may also be familiar with the 'Tracy Beaker' television series.

Exclamation Marks - Today you will be working on 'Tales of King Arthur' by Felicity Brooks. 

King Arthur is said to have lived around the year 500, but the first detailed narrative account of his life was not written until the 1130s, by the Welsh monk, Geoffrey of Monmouth. As a result, Arthur is a much-debated figure in British history, and historians are still unsure whether the Arthurian legends have any basis in fact. As you read the extract, focus your attention on the author's use of direct speech to drive the action.

Commas - Today you will be working on 'Hostages to Handheld Devices'. 

Children are spending an increasing amount of time using devices such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. and this has led to concerns about the health consequences of their increasingly sedentary lifestyles. This article presents recent research into children's attitudes towards technology and sports, raising the possibility of integrating technology into PE lessons to increase children's participation in physical activity. Before reading the article, consider whether you prefer playing sports or video games.

English - Monday 1st November

Today you will be changing the point of view of a story by creating a story mountain.

Stories can be mapped using a story mountain. Tomorrow, you are going to be rewriting a story to change the point of view. Pick a Just So Story that you enjoyed last half-term. You could choose: How the Whale got his Throat, How the Camel got his Hump or How the Rhinoceros got his Skin. You could also read Old Man Kangaroo and use that story if you want to. Use the template to create a story mountain of your chosen story. Then change details or add extra elements in order to alter the story. 

Arithmetic - Monday 1st November

Group 1 - Today you will be working on doubles to double 15 and doubles of multiples of 10.

Play Ping-Pong with somebody at home. Ask them to say a number between 1 and 15. You reply with its double. If this goes well, ask them to challenge you by including doubling multiples of 10. They can occasionally say 'ping' to which you can reply 'pong'.

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 - Ask somebody at home to play with you. Take it in turns to roll a 0-9 dice twice to make a 2-digit number. You can choose to double or halve it and then mark it onto a 0-200 line. The first person to get 5 numbers without the other one getting a number in between wins.

Arithmetic - Tuesday 2nd November

Group 1 - Today you will be halving even numbers to 30 and even multiples of 10.

Look at the bar model for half of 20. Write down the number which belongs in each half. Remember that halving is the reverse of doubling. Repeat for each picture. 

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

Write down the 3x table. Then, for each fact, write the corresponding division. For example, 4 x 3 = 12 so 12 divided by 3 = 4. Repeat with each 3x table fact. 

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

Ask somebody at home to play with you. Take it in turns to roll a 0-9 dice twice to make a 2-digit number. You can choose to double or halve it and then mark it onto a 0-200 line. The first person to get 5 numbers without the other one getting a number in between wins. 

Group 4 - Today you will be working on factors. 

Choose a 2-digit number. Roll a 0-9 dice. If the number rolled is a factor of your number, you score a point. Repeat but you can change your 2-digit number.

Arithmetic - Wednesday 3rd November

Group 1 - Today you will be counting in 5s and 10s to at least 100.

Choose a move (e.g. jump, hop, wave arms) and repeat this move as you count forwards and backwards in 10s to at least 100. Repeat, this time counting in 5. 

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

Have a go at composing 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 18, we love baked beans, etc

Spend two minutes practising your rhyme and then ask somebody at home to record you performing it. 

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 is shows including how many of each pizza were sold - read the scale carefully. How can we work out how many pizzas were sold altogether? Which type of pizza was twice as popular as another? Have a go at drawing your own graph where twice as many cheese and tomato were 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. 

Group 4 - Today you will be dividing by 2, 3 and 5. 

A number that is divisible by 3 (has 3 as a factor) if the digits add up to a multiple of 3. Here are some numbers: 462, 753, 875, 3470, 7515, 6346. Which of these are divisible by 3? Which are divisible by 2? Which are divisible by 2 and 3? Which are divisible by 5? Which are divisible by 2 and 5? 3 and 5?

Identify three things that you are pleased with and one thing that you want to improve. 

Arithmetic - Thursday 4th November

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. 

English - Friday 5th November

Today you will be completing your Just So Story. 

Reread the Just Story Story that you wrote yesterday. What sort of sentences have you mostly included? Have you used a range of different conjunctions? Spend some time today making any improvements that you have identified. Your next task is to read your story aloud to somebody at home. You could even ask them to take a video of you to email across to school. Does your story work for reading aloud? 

PSHE - Friday 5th November

Today you will be contributing to a group task. This can be tricky when you are working at home so you might need to ask some family members to work with you. 

Your group challenge is to make the tallest tower you can from tubes of paper and sticky tape. However, you only have 5 minutes to complete it. How did it go? How tall was your tower?

You are now going to repeat the task but this time you are the task manager and you need to give your family members roles, e.g. making the tubes, designing and building the tower. Did the task work better this time? Was it easier to have roles? Did people keep to their roles? Were there any disagreements? 

Group work can be difficult even for adults, especially when there are time limits to get things done and if there are too many ideas to choose from. Sometimes there is more than one person in a group who want their ideas to be chosen and this can cause conflict. 

Your task is to write at least 5 tips for successful group work.
