Reading - Monday 15th November

Full Stops - Today you will be working on 'Daddy Fell into the Pond' by Alfred Noyes. 

Alfred Noyes (1880-1958) was an English writer and poet. He is best known for his ballad, 'The Highwayman'. 'Daddy Fell into the Pond' is a comic poem which was first published in 1952. The characters' dull mood at the start of the poem is lifted when "Daddy" falls into the pond. As you read the poem, pay particular attention to Noyes' use of rhythm and rhyme. 

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

Question Marks - Today you will be working on 'Hamish and the Worldstoppers' by Danny Wallace.

'Hamish and the Worldstoppers' is by Danny Wallace, an author, presenter, actor, comedian and filmmaker. The book is about a boy called Hamish who decides to have some fun when one day, the world and everything in it suddenly stops, except for him. However, he soon discovers that the world has stopped because of some monsters who want to take over the world, and it's up to Hamish to stop them.

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

Exclamation Marks - Today you will be working on 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. 

Ted Hughes (1930-1998) is widely regarded as one of the greatest English poets of the twentieth century. He was also a popular children's author, and 'The Iron Man' is one of the his most successful works for children. Like so much of Hughes's writing, 'The Iron Man' is written in a vivid and engaging style, and this extract will give you the chance to explore techniques that engage the reader, including figurative and descriptive language, variations in sentence length and the use of questions. As you read the extract, focus your attention on the way Hughes uses language to make you want to keep reading. 

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

Commas - Today you will be working on 'Olympic Torch Relay, Day 52' by Matt King. 

In this article, Matt King, one of the torchbearers for the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay, describes how he rebuilt his life after a devastating rugby accident left him paralysed from the neck down. Before reading the article, remember that torchbearers like Matt are selected because of their outstanding contribution to their communities and because they are role models to others. As you read, think about why Matt may have been nominated to act as a torchbearer.

English - Monday 15th November

Today you will be changing a narrative text into dialogue, taking care to layout and punctuation speech correctly. 

We would normally think of autobiographies and biographies as being non-fiction. However, some authors write them using features found in fiction. Look at this excerpt from a Roald Dahl biography. It contains dialogue, not quotes. Remember what you have already learnt about dialogue:

  • Speech marks enclose the words spoken.
  • There is a comma at the end of the spoken words before the 'said'. 
  • A new line or paragraph is used for each new speaker. 
  • Use a lower case letter for 'said' even after an exclamation mark. 
  • A sentence continues with lower case after the speaker. 

Your task is to read this piece of text about Roald Dahl and rewrite it as dialogue.

Arithmetic - Wednesday 17th November

Group 1 - Today you will be adding any pair of single-digit numbers.

Play 'Flippy Floppy Fingers' with somebody at home. Both shake your hands 3 times, as you say 'Flippy Floppy Fingers'. Then both show several fingers. The first to say the total gets a point. Repeat. After 5 minutes, add up the points to find the winner. 

Group 2 - Today you will be subtracting any 1-digit number from teens numbers.

Have a look at these subtractions. Write down the answers as quickly as you can. 

Groups 3 and 4 - Today you will be working on the 12 times table. 

Have a look at this 12 by 12 multiplication grid. Use it to help you to chant the 12 times table. Repeat without the grid, then take a set of 0 to 12 cards, and multiply each number by 12. If you don't know a fact, how can you work it out? You could use commutativity (e.g. 12 x 7 rather than 7 x 12) and partitioning (find 10 lots, and 2 lots, then add the two answers). 

Maths - Wednesday 17th November

Year 5 - Today you will be multiplying 1-digit and 2-digit numbers by 10, 100 and 1000.

Year 5 Maths Lesson 7

Year 6 - Today you will be solving word problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Year 6 Maths Lesson 14

Religious Education - Wednesday 17th November

Today you will be thinking about what makes it difficult to live life according to your own beliefs.

Can you think of a time when you did something that you knew was wrong? Why did you do it? The following slides give examples of some responses that other children have given. Talk about these with somebody at home. 

Is it always easy to do the right thing? What can make it difficult? 

Year 5 - Can you think of a time when you were proud to have done the right thing? How did your beliefs influence your actions? Tell somebody at home and then write your ideas down. 

Year 6 - Draw a self-portrait on Worksheet 5B and then add the names and emblems of up to three clubs, groups, or societies which you are proud to be a member of. Finally, add words to describe how membership of that community makes you feel. 

Handwriting - Thursday 18th November

Today you will practise writing words with the end-high horizontal join using words with the letter string 'vi'.

Civil Word Search - Find the four words with the 'vi' letter string in the word search and highlight, circle or underline each word. Then practise the end-high horizontal join by writing the words. The words are 'civil', 'movie', 'view' and 'vine'.

Arithmetic - Thursday 18th November

Group 1 - Today you will be adding and subtracting multiples of 10 to or from any 2-digit number.

Here are some cards. Write each addition and its answer onto a piece of paper. 

Group 2 - Today you will be adding and subtracting multiples of 10 to or from any 4-digit number.

Look at this blank table. Think of a 4-digit number (which doesn't end in 0) and write it in the first column. Add and subtract 10 to the number. The first column won't change but the 100s column might. Repeat, adding and subtracting 100. The 1s and 10s columns won't change but the 1000s column might. Use different 4-digit numbers, recording your answers in the table. 

Groups 3 and 4 - Today you will be working on addition facts to 20.

Find somebody at home to play this game with. You both need to shuffle a pack of 1 to 9 cards and place them face down. On the count of 3, you both turn over your top card. The first to say the total wins both cards. Carry on playing until all of the cards have been turned over. Who has won the most pairs? They win the round. Repeat. 

Maths - Thursday 18th November

Year 5 - Today you will be multiplying 2-digit and 3-digit numbers by a 1-digit number using different strategies.

Year 5 Maths Lesson 8

Year 6 - Today you will be solving word problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Year 6 Maths Lesson 15

Science - Thursday 18th November

Today you will be comparing how different animals reproduce and grow. 

During sexual reproduction in mammals, egg cells are fertilised by 'internal fertilisation'. Do you remember what 'internal fertilisation' means? Read the slides to read a definition and to find out about the typical life cycle of mammals and the different gestation periods of a variety of mammals. 

Year 5 - Look at the slide with the various images of animals and their offspring. Can you match the parents to their offspring? Can you have reasons for your decisions based on what you have learned? Record your ideas, giving reasons. 

Year 6 - Read the Animal Fact Cards and choose one for the task. You will then produce a picture book for younger children which clearly explains the life cycle of your chosen animal. Picture Book 5A has subheadings and a word bank to help you to structure your work.
