History - Thursday 15th July

Today you will be learning how and why people in the Shang Dynasty made calendars.

Read the information on the PowerPoint to find out about the cyclical calendar that the Shang used to record the days on oracle bones. It sounds very complicated but it's a very flexible system that can be used to keep track of the hours of the day (12 x 2 hour slots), the days of the month, the months of the year and also the years themselves. There is no evidence that the Shang used them for months or years, though, and their months were probably just counted (e.g. 1st month, end month, etc). To help you to understand how the names of the days would be combined, you are going to make your own circular moveable calendar. Use the guide - How to make a Cyclical Calendar

English - Thursday 15th July and Friday 16th July

This week you will be completing your 'Just William' story. 

Remember the grammar that we have worked on during this unit: perfect verb form and the use of informal and formal language including the subjunctive form. Can you include examples of these in your writing? Remember to use informal language for William, the Outlaws and other relevant characters, e.g. the gardener. You will finish writing your story this week - the problem, the resolution and finally the happy ending for William. Can you use any old-fashioned language? 

When you have finished, please proof-read and check your writing. Are the characters well written? Is the setting described? Is dialogue included? Has informal language and old-fashioned vocabulary been used? Has the story been organised into paragraphs? 

PSHCE - Wednesday 14th July

Today you will be learning all about water safety. 

Start by telling somebody at home everything you know about staying safe in water. There are lots of different ways we can make sure we are safe in any kind of area of water. Read the Water Safety PowerPoint to find out more. 

Your task is to design a water safety poster. Using everything you know about water safety, design a poster telling people how to keep safe in the water. Your poster could be about general water safety or specific to a certain kind of water, such as swimming pools or the beach. Decide whether your poster should be aimed at younger children, older children or adults. 

Assembly - Wednesday 14th July

Today's assembly is 'Picture News'. 

New research has shown that fewer than 1% of authors that feature in exam texts in English secondary schools are from an ethnic minority background. The publisher, Penguin and the Runnymede Trust, analysed data from exam boards relating to more than half a million pupils in England. Other research conducted by BookTrust Research and CLPE last year, showed that the number of children's books published in the UK between 2017 and 2019 featuring characters from an ethnic minority background was 10%. 

Things to talk about at home...

  • Who is your favourite book characters? Why are they your favourite character?
  • Do you have a favourite author? If you do, what do you know about the author? 
  • Can you think of a book with a character who is like you? In what way are you similar? 

History - Wednesday 14th July

Today you will be learning how and why people in the Shang Dynasty wrote. 

What do people write today? Write your ideas on a piece of paper. For example: stories, poems, shopping lists, letters, diaries, blogs. Why do we write? To tell people things, to record events and information, to sell people things, to convince someone of something, to ask someone something, etc. What and why do you think the people in the Shang Dynasty wrote? For example: to record when kings changed, to record battles, to record what belonged to a person. Remember that they wrote on oracle bones. Have you ever heard the word 'oracle' before? What does it mean? It means someone who knows a lot, someone who can tell the future. 

Your task is to add Shang characters to the Chinese-English dictionary. Use the information about Shang writing and oracle bones to help you. 

English - Wednesday 14th July

Today you will be planning a 'Just William' short story and writing the opening. 

Now that you know the characters in the 'Just William' stories really well, you are going to write your own short story about William. You will need to choose which other characters will also be included, e.g. Mr and Mrs Brown, Robert, Ethel, the Outlaws, Violet Elizabeth, Mr and Mrs Bott and perhaps a new character, e.g. another aunt or uncle, a schoolteacher, a gardener, a shopkeeper. Will the story be set in the house, the garden, at school, in the woods? You should try to write in the style of Richmal Crompton and use brackets, dashes and commas to show parenthesis and use informal language for William and the Outlaws. 

Start by planning your story. You can do this in any way that you choose but you need to outline the plot - a beginning, a problem, a resolution and an ending that turns out well for William. When you are fully prepared, write your opening paragraph. Will your opening be a description, some dialogue or some action

Assembly - Monday 12th July

Today's assembly is called 'Safety on the Road'. 

Explain that the theme of the assembly is to understand how to ride your bicycle safely. 

Read Lester's Story.

What do you learn about cycling safely from Lester's story? Here are some ideas:

  • Never put anything on the handlebars of your bike.
  • Always wear a helmet.
  • Don't ride straight across the pavement onto the road. 

Read the following statements and decide if they are 'true' or 'false'. 

  • Boys are more likely to be injured in bicycle accidents than girls. 
  • More accident occur in daylight than in the dark.
  • Children under 10 are more likely to be involved in cycling accidents than teenagers.
  • You do not need to have lights on your bicycle when riding at night in an area with street lighting.
  • A cyclist can be fined for jumping a red light.
  • It is against the law to give someone a lift on your bicycle.
  • Two-thirds of serious injuries in cycling accidents occur at road junctions.
  • Schools can stop you from riding your bicycle if you don't wear a helmet. 

Remember: It is better to be safe than sorry. It is dangerous to take chances when riding your bike. 

Thought for the day:

  • Accidents hurt. Safety doesn't. 

History - Monday 12th July

Today you will be learning about silkworms. Start by watching this video on YouTube. 

There was one very special animal that people farmed in the Shang period. It wasn't a mammal, it wasn't a bird, it was an insect! It is an insect called Bombyx mori and it makes a very special fabric that the Chinese are still famous for. Read the presentation about silkworms to find out more. 

Your task is to draw the life cycle of an organism from each of the four classes: mammals, birds, plants and insects. In each of the organisms that you have looked at, farming involves interrupting the life-cycle at some point. Can you explain how Shang farmers interrupted the life cycle of the organisms they farmed? How did they keep their farming going if they killed most of the their organisms early? 

Religious Education - Monday 12th July

Today you will be considering ways in which churches reflect local culture.

A church is a building where people congregate and worship, but it is also a community of people who share the same religious beliefs. Take a look at this presentation to find out more. 

Year 4 - On Worksheet 2A, write about two churches or festivals. 

Year 5 - Use the internet to find out about churches in our local area. Record the information about one of the churches that you find. 

Year 6 - On Worksheet 2B, write bullet-points to help you to give a short oral presentation about similarities and differences between two or more churches or festivals. Think about how churches or festivals might reflect local culture and traditions. Ask somebody at home to record your presentation and then email it across to me. 

English - Monday 12th July

Today you will be reading aloud your 'Just William' play script. 

Remember to:

  • Look at the camera when you are speaking
  • Not hide your face behind anything
  • Speak slightly more slowly than normal
  • Speak clearly and with expression
  • Use facial expressions

Practise reading aloud your play script and then ask somebody at home to record you and email it.
