Friday 15th January
Maths
In today's Maths lesson, we are going to be recalling multiplication and division facts. During t
his lesson, we will be applying known multiplication facts to a wider range of questions.
During this lesson we will be recapping our arrays to represent the inverse, using known facts to find missing numbers and spotting mistakes in number senteces (using what we know about the part and whole of multiplication or division). 

Watch the tutorial video and complete the tasks. There are 2 parts of the task for you to complete each asking you to practice what we have learnt

          

Literacy

Today we are going to write our newspaper report recount. Before we begin we need to watch the lesson video to help our writing. The lesson video will start off by investigating which sentence starters are appropriate for newspaper reports. Then, we will look over our plans from the previous lesson and use them to inform our writing when writing a recount. We will also be using the success criteria to support us in our writing. We will look at a shared piece of writing, followed by a modelled piece of writing.

Use the Newspaper article template below to write your newspaper article. Don't forget to include the features of a good newspaper report

R.E.

We are going to continue our learning about Hinduism by look at important Hindu Gods and goddesses called Deities. We will also learn about the main Hindu beliefs.
Read through the Lesson PowerPoint to learn about the names and various interesting facts about different Gods and Goddesses. You will also find out about the 4 main beliefs of Hindus:

- Truth is eternal

- Dharma

- Reincarnation
- Moksha

 

Your tasks - You have two different tasks to complete:

1. Draw or stick a picture of two Hindu deities (gods and goddesses) in the boxes. Label the pictures with the name of the deity. How are the 2 deities similar and different?

2, Match the Hindu beliefs to the correct statements. You can either print the sheet to cut and stick the correct beliefs and statements together or copy them into your book.

Maths
Today in our Maths lesson , we are going to be looking at 
using the inverse operation to find missing numbers

This lesson will use our knowledge of multiplication and division 'fact families' in order to find the missing number in a range of questions.
During the lesson we will be looking at using arrays to represent the inverse, seeing how arrays and fact families can relate each other and we will be using known facts to find missing numbers.
Watch the tutorial video and complete the tasks. There are 2 parts of the task for you to complete each asking you to practice what we have learnt

Literacy

In our Literacy lesson today we will be looking at how to plan the recount of the events for our newspaper article (either about Spiderman or the Reindeer visit)

In this lesson, we will look at which time conjunctions are appropriate for newspaper reports. We will sort time conjunctions into the relevant sections of the Venn Diagram. Then, we will look at the notes that we created from the last lesson and add detail to the notes, including time conjunctions and journalistic sentence starters in the plans too.

Have a go at planning your own newspaper article (about either Spiderman or the Reindeer visit).
Use the planning to sheet to think about what you will include:
- for your headline
- in your introduction
- for interviews
- in each paragraph
- how you will end the article.

Wednesday 13th January

Maths

In today's Maths lesson we will explore the notion of inverse operations and use our times tables knowledge to answer division questions. We will start by recapping our work on bar models for multiplication and see how bar models can work for division questions too! We will also look at examples of how multiplication and division are related operations.
Watch the tutorial video and complete the tasks. There are 2 parts of the task for you to complete each asking you to practice what we have learnt

 

Literacy

In our Literacy lesson today, we will be investigating the purpose of semicolons and practising how to use them in a list. Watch the video lesson where we will look at an opening of a newspaper report and identify the 5Ws: who, what, where, when and why.

We will then be writing our own headlines for a newspaper report, making sure to keep it short and snappy.
Lastly, we will look at the success criteria of how to write a newspaper opening and apply that in our own writing.

 

Your task
Today I would like you to draft and note ideas for  your newspaper. You are not writing the whole article!
Choose whether you would like to write a newspaper article about the Reindeer visit before the holidays or about the Spiderman video from our video lessons. Think of a really short and snappy headline to draw the reader into your writing. You may need to think of 2 or 3 different headlines before you find the right one - the one that you think sounds the best. Now write the opening paragraph - the introduction to the article. Here you need to sum up what happened without giving too much away. Use exciting and adventurous words to encourage your reader to read on - Try a couple of different versions.

 

Spelling

Make sure that you learn your spellings that all begin with the prefix mis- ready for the online test tomorrow morning, during our Google Meet chat. Complete the following activity where you will be given a grid of letters. 

Using the letters in the grid, try to spell the words from your spelling list. You can use the letters as many times as you need. However, one of the words cannot be spelled. Which one?

Topic

Today we will be starting our brand new topic - 'Around the World'. In this lesson, we will be learning about the continent of Europe. We will begin by identifying Europe on a world map. We will then identify other countries, including the United Kingdom, on the map of Europe.

Click on the map below to watch the video and follow the presentation on the link below. Write your answers down on a sheet of paper or type them up to see how much you can remember. 

Tuesday 12th January

Maths
For today's lesson, we will begin by recapping our learning about using arrays to represent different times tables. You are also going to learn about connecting arrays and bar models. By the end of the session, we should be able to use bar models to answer multiplication questions. Watch the tutorial video and complete the tasks. There are 3 parts of the task for you to complete each asking you to practice what we have learnt

 

I would also like you to attempt Big Maths. Set yourself a timer for 1 minute. How many of the problems on the page can you answer correctly? Mark your answers and give yourself a score. This will be your score to beat next week.

Literacy

For our Literacy today we are going to be learning about using exciting vocabulary and word choices in our writing. In our video lesson today we are going to learn about exciting words to use when writing about a chaotic or confusing event:
 

Your task is to look at the 'interesting word cards' (see below or click on the link for a larger version). Start by writing a sentence for the boring words - happy, next, sad, said, big/small, went, very and saw. Now choose one of the 'WOW' or interesting words from the cards. Rewrite your sentences from earlier putting the more interesting words in the sentences instead - Are they more exciting sentences to read? 
          

Science
For today's Science lesson, we are going to continue our look at Nutrition and the amounts of nutrition that we need compared to other animals. We will revise the different food groups and the types of nutrients that there are. We will learn why water is so important to us and the right amount of nutrients to keep us healthy. We are going to compare the amounts of nutrients that we need to that of animals like parrots, cats and dogs.

Read through the PowerPoint by clicking on the link below and answer the following questions:
1. Which animal needs 15% protein in their diet?
2. Which animal needs the least carbohydrates?

3. What is the % difference between the amount of fats needed by humans and parrots?

4. Name 2 animals that you think would eat more protein than a cat
5. What would happen to a cat if it ate the same amounts of nutrients as a human?
6. Why do living things eat different amounts of nutrients?
7. What animal nutrient needs would you like to find out about? Why? 


 

Monday 11th January
Maths

For today's lesson, we will begin by recapping our learning about using arrays to represent different times tables. You are also going to learn about 'commutativity' - how we can answer multiplications in any order (e.g 2x3 = 6 or 3x2=6). Watch the tutorial video and complete the tasks. Again, there are two sets of tasks for you to complete each asking you to practice what we have learnt.

Reading Comprehension
Read the newspaper article 'Lucky Lottery Winners Win Again. Read the text carefully and answer the questions. Remember -  some questions will ask for answers from ther etx while others will ask for predictions or about how you feel towards the text. 

Literacy

We are going to start our week of Literacy lessons by learning about letter strings. Watch the video (to 23:38) below to find out about the letter strings -ough, -ear, -ou, - au and -ice. We will learn how these letter strings can sound differently and words that use these letter strings.

 

 

Your task -  Try to think of at least 5 different words for each letter string. The letter string doesnt have to sound the same but must appear in each word. Choose two of your favourite words for each letter string and write an interesting sentence for each one.
Please note: You do not have to learn the spellings at the end of the video as we are learning our own set of spellings.
