Daily Learning Tasks

Friday 10.7.20

 

Flashback Friday Maths

Choose one of the sheets on Seesaw to complete. There is a hard, harder and hardest option. You only need to complete one.

 

Science

Today we are going to be thinking about the changes that are made to the environment that have an effect of habitats and the animals that live in them.

 

Living things depend upon their habitats to give them everything they need, including food, water, air and a space to live and grow. Human beings are able to make big changes to their habitat to make it suitable for them to live in. Some plants and animals are able to do this, but some are not.

 

Look through the powerpoint and the videos on the clips below.

Today I would like you to complete some research about an endangered animal of your choice and complete the sheet with the information that you have found.

 

Afternoon

 

Reading

Listen to Chapter 16.

 

1. What had Hiccup been waiting to hear?

2. Who is Little Supper?

3. How was the dragon's mouth described?

 

Activity

Imagine you are one of the boy Vikings running away from the Green Death. You witness the dragon snatching Hiccup. Draw the boys watching this and add thought bubbles to show what they would be thinking. You may need to think carefully about this, Snotlout and Fishlegs may have very different thoughts for example!

 

Art

Today I would like you to complete a self portrait.

Watch the video on the clip below to give you some pointers.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/how-to-draw-a-portrait/zk28qp3

 

However, I'd like you to complete a self portrait with a bit of a twist. Like the portraits shown in the pictures here, I'd like half of your face to be a self portrait and half of your face to be filled with pictures of things that make you, you.

 

You can do this on paper or online, using whatever art materials you have available to you. You may even choose to complete an Andy Goldworthy inspired portrait and use natural materials.

Maths

Year 3 & 4 - Drawing on a grid 

Today you will be plotting points on a 2-D grid. You will need to remember how to read, write and use a pair of coordinates (__,__)

 

English

 

You may have seen lots of ‘how to’ videos online. Use today to create your own video or script.

 

You might want to develop a script so you feel confident in what you are going to say.

  • Ensure you use imperative (bossy) verbs like: Put, Place, Take
  • Use adverbs to explain how they do the action: slowly, carefully
  • Use adverbials to make instructions clear: Then, Firstly

 

Once it’s written, make your own video!

 

It could be any topic you choose! Some examples are: how to make a sandwich, how to do a dance, how to play a game, how to teach your dog a trick, how to draw a picture.

 

PE

Jumping in combination

 

All we’re going to need is some ties, rolled up t-towels and some socks. That’s it!

 

Activity 1

This is a footwork sequence and we’re going to be working on coordination and balance through jumping in different ways. Encourage your child to keep their two feet together when completing the criss-cross, four quarter challenge. During the hopscotch task support your child not to rush, bend their knees on landing and put their arms out for stability. Once again, encourage your child to keep their feet together and bend their knees through the ladder activity.

 

Activity 2

A little bit of a progression here. We’ve got a variation of footwork patterns in terms of jumping over the barriers. You can jump from one one foot to two; two feet to one foot; two to two; and lots of different variations.

 

Activity 3

The final progression is called Jump the River. The challenge is to make three jumps and safe landings over the river. When you have done that you could progress further onto a windy river. Go!

 

Encourage your child to look carefully at where they need to jump to and to bend their knees on take off and landing. They can use their arms to propel them forward and help them to increase their distance.

Write different sentences today using adjectives, nouns, verbs and adverbs.

Go through the alphabet and write silly sentences using this format.

A

Angry anteater ate aggressively.

(adjective)  (noun)  (verb)  (adverb)

Can you think of a sentence for each letter of the alphabet?

Challenge - can you think of another sentence for each of the letters?

Can you use a comma to add another adjective? e.g Angry, animated anteater ate aggressively.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Flashback Friday Maths

It's Flash Back Friday (I've finally thought of some correct alliteration...it's taken me 2 years!!) Choose the hard, harder or hardest sheet to complete. You only have to complete one of them. The sheets can be found on Seesaw.

 

Science

As humans, we are able to make changes to our habitats in order to make our lives safer and more comfortable. Plants and animals are unable to make big changes to their environment, and therefore are very vulnerable to changes in their habitat.

 

Today I would like you to look through the powerpoint. Then, if you are able, I would like you to visit a local habitat e.g. a park, woodland or another that you can think of. On the Local Habitat Survey Activity Sheet, draw a sketch map of the habitat, making detailed observations, drawing and labelling any environmental dangers that they see there.

 

Following this, complete the Environmental Dangers Record Activity Sheet by filling in the table to record the dangerous changes that you noticed in the local habitat, what danger they pose, and a suggestion for helping the local wildlife.

 

Afternoon

 

Art

Today we are going to continue looking at the work of Andy Goldsworthy, a British sculpture and artist who uses materials in the natural environment to complete his work.

 

Rewatch the clip below showing the artist at work and look at the attached examples. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zh4wmp3

Year 3 & 4 - symmetry

 

Today you will be creating symmetrical pieces of art.
It is possible to complete this on seesaw, but probably better to print the sheets you want to do and use a pencil and some colouring pencils. 
I have put all the different sheets on the class website for you to download and print. 
Another great activity you can do is create symmetrical paint art. Fold a piece of paper in half and paint on half with any design you want, while the paint is wet fold it in half again and put pressure on the paper. After a little wait open it up and see what you have made. My suggestions are paint half a face, a flower or a butterfly to test it out.

Remember that the fold is your line of symmetry, whatever you do on one side will be reflected on the other half.

 

Find the maths sheets below

PE

These activities will help develop your child's coordination, balance and strength, which is an important part of their development. It's linked to the gymnastics strand of the national curriculum, but your child doesn't need to be a gymnast to benefit from these.

Activity one
Sit in a tight tuck position and hold onto your sock as tight as you can. Can you rock backwards and forwards whilst keeping hold of the sock? Try not to touch the floor. Make sure you use your stomach muscles.  

Activity two  
Now try holding on the top of your knees.  

This time we will try with your legs straight out. Make sure your hands are behind your legs so your elbows don’t touch the floor.

There is a hard, harder and hardest option for each year group on the school website. Choose one to complete

 

Science - Classification Keys

Today we are going to create our own branching keys to identify living things by looking at their characteristics. The characteristics of a living thing are what make it similar or different to other living things. All species of living thing have a unique set of characteristics. Species with similar characteristics are put into groups. This is how we classify living things.

 

Work through the powerpoint and then choose one of the activity sheets which have 8 living things from different habitats. Complete the first sheet to identify the characteristics of each living thing. Then use these to create a branching classification key. There are examples of this on the powerpoint.

Today I would like you to practice your throwing accuracy! 

Get the washing basket out, grab some pots from the kitchen and find some soft things to throw, like teddy bears! 

An easy to create activity and game at home to entertain and physically educate your child - enjoy!

The important thing to remember for this is that you’ve got to keep your eyes on the prize! That means you’ve got to watch where you’re throwing to at all times.


Activity 1 explanation
Our first activity is a two-handed throw into a box. Stand a comfortable distance away from the target. Then using two hands throw a soft object like a teddy, or rolled up socks, into the box.

Activity 2 explanation
Next we are going to be throwing with one hand. We are going to start by using the hand that we write with. If you get the object into the target, then you can move the target further away. If you miss, move it closer to make it easier.

Time for a game!
Now we are going to be playing a game. Start with three different size targets that we are going to be throwing objects into. Start with the biggest target, and move down each time you get your object into your target. The first, or the quickest, into the smallest target at the end of the game is the winner.

Today you are going to plan and then write a setting description for your story. Where is your new story going to take place? It might be helpful to draw a picture of your new setting.

You need to think about:

What objects are in this setting?

Why are they important? What adjectives are you going to use to describe them?

Using your senses. What can you see, hear, smell, touch?

Can you use some personification (giving an object a human feature, eg, the wind pushed its way through the luscious green leaves on the trees)?

Can you use similes or metaphors to describe?

 

Remember, the setting description is very important. It allows the reader to feel like they are there in the story. Make your words count! I'm looking forward to reading them!

Collecting data and creating line graphs.

Today I would like you to collect your own data and then create a line graph to represent the data you have collected. You can do this using purple mash, pencil and paper. I have uploaded a video explaining this new website.

Purple mash - https://www.purplemash.com/#app/tools/2graph

Printable squared paper - http://www.mathsphere.co.uk/resources/MathSphereFreeGraphPaper.htm

 

Remember that line graphs collect data over time. the example I will create will show the amount of people who go to a shop on each day of the week.

 

Here are some suggestions if you struggle to think: Change of someone's height as they grow up. Amount of crisps eaten each month for a year. Distance walked with dog for each day of the week. Once you have created your line graph write some sentences describing your work.

 

I have also attached a sunflower extension sheet, there is a hard and a harder sheet for you to choose between.

Year 3

Line graphs

Today you will be looking at a piece of work the year 4s did earlier in the week. You will be looking at line graphs. Line graphs might look scary, but they are actually quite nice to use. On the line graphs the cross marks the different data that has been collected. The lines join up the dots, a bit like a dot to dot. The lines let you have a guess at what the data would be at a point you might not have collected. Give it a go, if you get stuck please let me know so I can explain in more detail. This lesson prepares you for next year and what you will look at in year four.

This video is great help! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2YkbdNORp8

Creating pictographs

Today I would like you to collect data about anything you want and use purple mash to create a pictograph to show what you have found. First pick what you are going to collect data on, then work out how to collect your data. Once you have collected your data then you need to turn it into a pictograph.

 

You could do the different types of vehicles you have seen in a day, counting bikes, cars, planes. You can use a tally chart to count the different amounts of each vehicle.

In your pictograph a picture of the vehicle could represent 5 of the vehicle you have seen. So if you have seen 5 red cars in a day you would draw one car in your pictograph. If you saw 20 bikes then you would draw 4 bikes in your pictograph.

Today you are going to be learning about the the different types of biographies. This is going to help you learn how to write a biography. You are going to spot the difference between biographies and autobiographies.

 

 

Maths

Year 4

 

Interpreting charts

 

Children revisit how to use bar charts, pictograms and tables to interpret and present discrete data. They decide which scale will be the most appropriate when drawing their own bar charts. Children gather their own data using tally charts and then present the information in a bar chart. Questions about the data they have gathered should also be explored so the focus is on interpreting rather than drawing.

 

Year 3

 

Statistics

 

Children build on their understanding of pictograms from Year 2. They continue to read and interpret information in order to answer questions about the data. It is important that children understand the value of each symbol used and what it means when half a symbol is used. Children construct pictograms and choose an appropriate key. Encourage children to carry out their own data collection.

Science

The Egg Protection Program You are responsible for building a device that your egg will rest in so it doesn't crack when dropped from a height of 5 feet. Have a family member help you make 1 hard-boiled egg. When your egg has cooled draw a face on it. Give your egg a name. Keep your egg refrigerated until you are ready to test your device. You can involve your family in this project if they have time. Let's get started on keeping your egg safe!

1. 🤔 Identify the opportunity.

2. Design your egg protection device. Brainstorm ideas, make drawings, gather supplies. 👍 Note: You CAN NOT build a "landing pad" to soften the drop. The only protection you can give your egg is the device you build to surround it. Your device cannot include pillows or clothing.

3. Pick a design and build a prototype of your egg protection device. Think about how you might slow the rate of descent, provide cushion, defy gravity etc.

4. Test your design by dropping your egg from 5 feet. Is your egg crack free after landing?

5. Tap to add to your journal.

6. Take a video or a of your prototype and the results of your test. How did your prototype work? Is your egg crack free? What was the biggest challenge? What would you redesign?

7. Tap the green check to add to your journal. Challenge: Does your prototype work when the egg is dropped from 10 feet?

 

Option: Write a report about your design process. Include mathematical models that explain the forces you need to consider in order to keep your egg safe? This includes gravity, rate of descent, impact.

 

Family Why: Giving your child the opportunity to design, create and build helps them learn to think creatively, take risks, ask questions and be innovative. These skills are important building blocks to science, programming and engineering skills. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZYwsAvHgVw

Finding and comparing duration. 

Children find the durations of events using both analogue and digital clocks. They should be given opportunities to practically work out durations of time using clocks with moveable hands. Number lines are also a useful model. Children explore the most efficient ways of breaking the time down in order to work out the duration. For example: half hours, quarter of an hour and five minutes.

 

Children compare durations of time using analogue and digital clocks. They could use empty number lines to model the situations as these will assist with bridging over hours. They use their knowledge of addition and subtraction, and that there are 60 minutes in an hour, to compare the length of time taken by particular events or tasks.

Today is that big day! Today I would like you to make a start on your newspaper write up. Do not worry about doing it in a day. What I would do is do a first draft of your newspaper and start to write each section out. After you have done this send it to me and I will check through it. Remember the important features of a newspaper. Once you have written out your newspaper you can rearrange the different parts of your newspaper to get it just right and you are happy with it. At the start of this power point I have attached some work to help with facts and opinions which are important in newspapers. If you have any issues or questions then let me know through SeeSaw. 1. Make your headline short and snappy. 2. In the first sentence sum up what the story is about. 3. Write your report in the third person and the past tense. 4. Split your newspaper report up into paragraphs to help the reader clearly understand the information. 5. If you use quotes to make your report more interesting, don't forget to use speech marks! 6. Use a photo with a caption to give the reader more information. 7. Fill your newspaper report with both facts and opinions. Facts give the reader all of the information they need by using the 5 Ws.

Today you will be ordering decimals into ascending or descending order. To be successful in this work you will need to be able to read different decimal numbers and be able to compare more than two numbers to work out the correct order. In later questions you might want to use the place value grid to help with working out which decimal number is larger. Remember: Descending is going from the largest number to the smallest number Ascending is going from the smallest number to the largest You should use the example attached to get and idea of how each question is done. Once you have done this then look at the student template for activities to complete.

Today I would like you to plan out what is going to happen in your story. You will be using a story mountain to build up your story in steps. You will then use this plan as a way of helping you when it comes to the final write up. A story mountain outlines the different points of a story. At each part of the mountain you need to write a few detailed sentence about what is going to happen. Have a look at each step in the story mountain. Once you have completed the story mountain and have mapped out your ideas you should start building on the different sections by turning the sentences in your plan into detailed paragraphs. Make sure you use great vocabulary, interesting adjectives and adverbs and really make your work stand out! This can be your first draft of your final writing!

English –

Well done to those children who have made a start. What I have seen so far looks great!

Today you will be doing similar work as yesterday. What I would like you to do is plan where your story is going to be set. To start with have a think about all the locations your story will be set, then for each place draw a picture of what is there. If you are writing about an enchanted forest you could draw the different types of trees with little houses calved into them and toadstools of all different colours. Then once you have drawn your location write around the outside of the picture. Think about detailed ways you can describe the things in your location.

I have had some children create a wonderful blurb for their story; this would be a great idea if you have finished your location descriptions. If you chose to do this then make sure you make it persuasive so people want to read your story.

 

Maths –

Today we will be moving on to looking at tenths and hundredths. You will be reading numbers which go up to thousandths. To do this you need to remember that numbers on the right of the decimal points go in this order: Tenths à Hundredths à Thousandths.

I have added a link to a video which will help.

Tuesday

Good morning Turtles, 

Today we have a range of different activities we are going to do.

 

In English you will be continuing with your Mission 500 stories (Creative writing). If you did yesterdays work you should have now got an idea of your task, been through the powerpoint and completed some of the activities on there. You should have also had a think about your characters and what your story will be about.

If you have not done that do not worry you can catch up! 

 

Today I would like you to start to design the characters in you story. To do this you should draw a detailed picture of your character in the middle of a page (If you have lots of characters then you can use a page for each). Around the picture of the character you should write words to describe your character. You can describe what they look like, what they sound like, what their personality is like and maybe even what they do. 

Is your character kind and walk with a skip in their step or is your character grumpy and hobble around with a walking stick? It's up to you! 

Don't forget to use interesting words, adjectives and adverbs! You have 500 words to use so make sure you use them wisely! 

 

In Maths you will be using the same powerpoint as yesterday to practice decimal skills. I have re-uploaded the powerpoint along with the new questions. 

Year 3 - Tenths as decimals

Year 4 - Make a whole

You can do both sets of work as they will both help when we get to more difficult decimal work.

After you finish go on a decimal hunt around your house. How many different things in or around your house use decimals. Make a list or take photos and upload them to SeeSaw.

 

 

Afternoon

Today we are going to start our new topic. We are going to be investigating the Vikings. 

I would like you to find out who the Vikings were, where they came from and any other interesting facts about them. To show what you have found out you should either make a poster or a fact file. Make sure your work is full of great information, but don't just copy everything you find, make sure you get the best bits and put them in your own words. 

To find your information you can use books or some websites I have found.
