Week Commencing 22 November 2021

English - Monday 22nd November

Today you will be using a dictionary to check the spelling and/or meaning of a word. 

Look at the words 'autobiography' and 'biography'. These words both have prefixes. 'autos' means self and 'bios' means life. These words both come from Greek. What other words do you know with these prefixes? E.g. autograph, automobile, automatic, biology, biosphere. Have a look in a dictionary (you can use an online one if you don't have a dictionary at home) and write down other words that you can find that begin with these prefixes. 

Look at the word 'fictitious'. Biographies and autobiographies are factual; stories that are made up are fiction and can be called fictitious, which means not real, being imaginary or invented; relating to characters and events found in fiction. The word 'fictitious' is not easy to spell! Not many common words end like this. Usually if the root word ends in -ce, then the /s/ sound is spelt as 'c', e.g. vice - vicious, grace - gracious, space - spacious. There is one common exception to this spelling rule - anxious, spelt with an 'x'. Here is a list of words

Group A - Choose three words from the list and write a sentence with each one of the words in it. 

Groups B and C - Choose five words from the list and write a sentence with each one of the words in it. 

Group D - Choose seven words from the list and write a sentence with each one of the words in it. 

Use a dictionary if you are not certain of the word meanings. 

Arithmetic - Monday 22nd November

Group 1 - Today you will be counting on and back in 5s.

Find somebody at home to do this activity with. Sit facing each other (or in a small circle if you can find more players). Find an object that can be passed between you - count on from 0 in 5s while you pass the object. When you get to 150, stop and then count back in 5s. Here is a 1-100 square that you can use to help you if you want. 

Group 2 - Today you will be rounding 3-digit numbers to the nearest 10 and 100.

Here is a Rounding Game. Mix up all of the cards and then organise them into their number families. Each family has a 3-digit number, its nearest 10 and its nearest 100. For instance, in the family of 324 are 320 (nearest 10) and 300 (nearest 100). Once all the families have been found, collect, and shuffle the cards then play again. 

Group 3 - Today you will be multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100.

Here is a 10s, 1s, 0.1s and 0.01s place value grid. Ask somebody at home to call out a number, e.g. 5.6. Your task is to use digit cards to show the number on the grid. Then multiply the number by 10. Then divide by 100. Repeat with other numbers, e.g. 0.8, 3.06. 

Group 4 - Today you will be saying how much is needed to make the next metre.

Play 'Ping, Pong' with somebody at home. Ask them to say a length, e.g. 3.74m. You need to say how much is needed in metres to make the next metre, i.e. 0.26m. Record the pairs that you create.

Religious Education - Wednesday 24th 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 25th November

Today you will be practising writing words with the end-high horizontal join using words with the letter string 'rm'. 

From 'Arm' to 'Worm' - In this activity, you will follow instructions to change letters so that they change the word 'arm' into 'worm' in five stages. In the process, you will practise the end-high horizontal join four times. You will also be using your alphabetical knowledge as the instructions focus on the alphabetical order of the consonants and vowels. If you want to challenge yourself, you could cover up the consonant/vowel guide before you begin. 

English - Thursday 25th November

Today you will be working on simple, compound, and complex sentences.

Read the excerpt from 'All about... Michael Morpurgo'. Analyse the different sentences. Find some simple sentences (one clause), some compound sentences (two or more equal clauses joined by 'and', 'or' or 'but') and some complex sentences (main clause with one or more subordinate clauses). Look at the conjunctions that have been used to join these clauses too: both co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions. Also, look at how headings and subheadings have been used. 

Here is a set of complex sentences. Your task is to split each sentence into the main clause and the subordinate clause. Then take the subordinate clause and add it to another main clause that you create. 

Maths - Thursday 25th November

Year 5 - Today you will be multiplying 2-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers using multiple methods.

Year 5 Maths Lesson 12

Year 6 - Today you will be comparing and ordering fractions.

Science - Thursday 25th November

Today you will be finding about about the work of naturalists.

What is a naturalist? What do they do? Do you know of any famous naturalists? Read the slides to find out what a naturalist is and what they do. 

Year 5 - Read the descriptions of the two naturalists on the Famous Naturalists sheet. Then answer the questions about the impact of human behaviour on the environment which the naturalists identified. Then describe what necessary changes are identified to improve the environment. 

Year 6 - Choose one of the naturalists to research and produce a presentation about. The presentation could take the form of a report, a poster, a booklet or a slide show. Worksheet 6B has some questions to help you.
