Friday 10th July 2020...MATHS...below you will find 2 Problem Solving Maths Challenges...These are aimed at YEAR 6 and UKS2 so they are trickier...choose carefully - answers are supplied. Lets hope you can find the solution!

Friday 10th July 2020...MATHS...below you will find an Escape Room Style Maths Challenge...This one, aimed at LKS2 is easier than the UKS2 and YEAR 6 ones...choose carefully - answers are supplied. Lets hope you can find the solution!

Friday 10th July 2020...SCIENCE...Lesson 3 of our Scientists and Inventors Unit. Today we take a look at the work of Marie Maynard Daly. She was an inspirational figure who studied the affects of different foods on the body. Look at the PowerPoint. Carry out the tasks as you go. We will see how much you know about healthy and unhealthy foods!

year 5\6 - Algebra...This is aimed at both YEAR 5 and YEAR 6.

I'm not sure how useful this will be but it is the video to support today's task. It's a 30 minute lesson introducing algebra. Interactive lesson.

Thursday 9th July 2020...MATHS YEAR 6...Today we work with algebra, substituting values into given expressions. Take a look at the PowerPoint then choose from the differentiated tasks or work through them all!

Thursday 9th July 2020...ENGLISH...yesterday's tasks should cover today as well but for those ahead of the game and in need- here is the final Statutory Spellings Crossword puzzle.

Wednesday and Thursday 8th-9th July 2020...ENGLISH...So this is a two day task. Firstly you need to look at the PowerPoint up to the page explaining the task. To complete this you need to open the copy of the Non-Chronolgical Jabberwocky Report provided. Your job is to write a final paragraph for THAT report. You must base it on theirs- not yours. Remember to summarise the information in the text and make sure you include the key points you want your reader to remember about the report. You could use a more personal style and address the reader directly. Then your next task is to put together your own report. You can write it by hand or use a computer. Don't forget to write a final summary paragraph for yours too. Look at the rest of the PowerPoint to help with any editing required. I can't wait to see them! Remember you can add any illustrations that you think will add to your report.OBVIOUSLY you MUST NOT COPY the report supplied. Use it to help you, but the ideas in yours MUST be your own.

Wednesday 8th July 2020...MATHS YEAR 5...The last of the 'Sweets Algebra Work' today. PowerPoint and follow-up task for all. APOLOGIES for no answers yesterday...I have added them to yesterday's work and supplied answers today too! There is also ALPHABET ALGEBRA for anyone wanting an extra challenge. Follow the tip at the top...find the value of the letters using information from previous letters solved...don't just try to do them in alphabetical order...Enjoy!

Wednesday 8th July 2020...MATHS YEAR 6...A look at Two Step Algebraic Expressions today. PowerPoint and differentiated follow-up tasks for all. There is also ALPHABET ALGEBRA for anyone wanting an extra challenge. Follow the tip at the top...find the value of the letters using information from previous letters solved...don't just try to do them in alphabetical order...Enjoy!

Week beginning Monday 6th July 2020...SPELLING TASKS for the Week ahead...these are Yr 5/6 Spelling tasks from now on...a task for each day, ready for a test on Friday.

Tuesday 7th July 2020...MATHS YEAR 5...The next step today. Remember you also have the option of using the Year 6 Maths if you are finding this too easy, but do this first please and then use Year 6 as an extension activity.

Tuesday 7th July 2020...MATHS YEAR 6. We continue our work about algebraic expressions by practising finding one step rules. Remember to use the same technique as normal calculations that give you the answer and leave you having to fill a gap. Often you will need to use an inverse operation working backwards through the equation or in this case, the algebraic expression.

Tuesday 7th July 2020...ENGLISH. Today's lesson is about Organisational and Presentational Devices! That's a bit of a mouthful! The PowerPoint reminds you of the devices that you may use in your report and why they are useful. There is a written task and a short quiz at the end of the PowerPoint. It is really important that you check through your planning and have a think about which of the devices you will use and where. You could add this to your planning.

Monday 6th July 2020...ENGLISH...we continue to build our Non-chronological report. After last week's work, you should have complete planning AND the introduction written. Today we concentrate on the paragraph about the Jabberwock's APPEARANCE. You have already planned this, but today's lesson concentrates on Relative Clauses and how you can use these to add detail to your planned section about its Appearance. Follow the PowerPoint, complete the task and then write your 'Appearance' paragraph.

Monday 6th July 2020...MATHS YEAR 5...A simple start to Algebra...a PowerPoint and then a task to complete. If you find it easy, feel free to take a look at the YEAR 6 Algebra work too.

Friday 3rd July 2020...MATHS YEAR 6...it's our final day on BODMAS for now...lots of activities to choose from. There is a PowerPoint for anyone that wants a bit of a reminder and a bit more practice before you start. Then there are Challenge Cards, a Speed Challenge, Matching Tasks and a set of differentiated activities too. Enjoy!

Friday 3rd July 2020...MATHS YEAR 5. It's our final day on Roman Numerals so there is a quick warm-up task on the PowerPoint, an Assessment Task (with Answers to check your work) and a fun 'Cross-number' Puzzle (a bit like a crossword but numbers instead). Be careful...just one mistake could be a disaster!

Friday 3rd July 2020...SCIENCE...Lesson 2 of Scientists and Inventors. The PowerPoint explains the tasks. This is meant to be a pairs task...you can choose whether to complete A or B...you could ask someone at home to join you. Everything you need is here- except- you may need to use Google to research your scientist a little further..

Thursday 2nd July 2020...ENGLISH...today you will plan and then write your introduction. Please look at the PowerPoint before getting started, it will show you all of the vital ingredients to make the perfect 'intro'. I have included a checklist to keep an eye on too, so that you don't forget anything.

Thursday 2nd July 2020...MATHS YEAR 6...more Bodmas today but not quite so bonkers! PowerPoint and differentiated tasks with answers to mark before posting. Choose wisely!

Refresh your knowledge of the order of operations used for solving maths problems at school, and find out the right order to solve any calculation. Essential...

Week beginning Monday 29th June 2020...SPELLING TASKS for the Week ahead...these are Yr 5/6 Spelling tasks from now on...a task for each day, ready for a test on Friday.

Wednesday 1st July 2020...MATHS YEAR 6. I have decided that we had better take a look at Bodmas before moving on to Algebra. 'BONKERS BODMAS' is the most simple introduction to Bodmas that I can find. There is a PowerPoint on Seesaw and the sheets on here will help you to complete the tasks on the PowerPoint, including the differentiated final task. If there are any problems try watching the videos below, or we can go over them tomorrow if you are in school. Remember using the Year 5 maths if needed, is absolutely fine.

BBC Bitesize BodmasThese may help if needed. 2 videos and 2 interactive tasks.

Wednesday 1st July 2020...MATHS YEAR 5. For the rest of this week we will recap Roman Numerals. It starts off fairly simply...There is a PowerPoint, a Symbols and Values grid to help if required, differentiated tasks and a Roman Numerals Jigsaw Puzzle for fun!

Wednesday 1st July 2020...ENGLISH...today you will use the sheet provided to plan your report. It is REALLY important that you look at the PowerPoint first though because it shows you how to plan in stages. First your title, then your subheadings and then think about the detail that you will include under each subheading. The plan has started you off by putting just two 'branches' on each subheading but I think you will need to add more so that your report is detailed enough. Remember JUST THE PLANNING TODAY PLEASE but make sure it is detailed.

Tuesday 30th June 2020...YEAR 5 MATHS... We have a PowerPoint (on Seesaw as well) and a code cracking task. Notice that the Code Cracking Cards are differentiated (look for the stars) Use the other sheet (again differentiated) to record your answers. Use the answers provided to mark your work

Tuesday 30th June 2020...YEAR 6 MATHS...One more day on Sequencing work. We have a PowerPoint (on Seesaw as well) differentiated tasks and then some extension tasks for those that require them. Don't forget to use the answers provided to mark your work.

Tuesday 30th June 2020...ENGLISH...Today we will recap on Features of a Non-Chronological Report. Work through the PowerPoint (found on Seesaw as well), complete the Identifying Features Task then draw and label your Jabberwock. You may struggle with the game unless your whole family are there and happy to cooperate!

Monday 29th June 2020...ENGLISH...this week's work will be a step by step journey to finally writing a Non-Chronological Report about The Jabberwocky. Today we begin with Lesson 1 (PowerPoint on Seesaw). To help with your understanding of the poem, this uses a Reading Comprehension Task to quiz you. There are 3 differentiated levels for you to choose from. Choose wisely please! The final task on the PowerPoint is based on the Humpty Dumpty Explains sheet but I think you are more expert at Portmanteau than Humpty anyway, after your hard work last week!

Monday 29th June 2020...YEAR 5 MATHS...we will start with some sequencing work. Today, a PowerPoint (don't worry about the bowling/skittles bits- I found them quite confusing!) and then differentiated tasks

Monday 29th June 2020...YEAR 6 MATHS...we will start with some sequencing work which will lead onto some Algerbra work over the next few days. Today, a PowerPoint (on Seesaw) differentiated tasks and then some extension tasks for those that require them. Look carefully, work through the powerpoint...when there are more than two numbers in a sequence missing, you look at the number of JUMPS between the numbers, not the number of missing numbers...Look carefully and you should see what I mean!

Friday 26th June 2020. SCIENCE...Our Science work between now and the end of term is about Scientists and Inventors...WEEK 1 is about Stephen Hawking and his work about Black Holes. The PowerPoint can be found on Seesaw. The rest of the resources are here.I have also added a DAILY RECORD information sheet about Black Holes to help you- you DO NOT have to write answers to the questions but answering them verbally might help with your research.

Friday 26th June 2020...YEAR 5 MATHS...Here are a few Text Book Pages with some small and large scale problems for you to solve. Handy Hint: it gets harder and watch your cms and mms!

Check first that you are allowed to watch a You Tube video. This a quick but useful introduction to calculating surface area.

Thursday 25th June 2020...ENGLISH...ok so today is Performance Time! You will need to use the PowerPoint and the checklist to make sure that you are doing everything that you need to, to deliver an outstanding performance. If you are still writing or improving your poem, you have some catching up to do. Obviously we will all deliver an individual performance and those at home will need to find a willing audience and record it too for Seesaw. I look forward to viewing them!

Thursday 25th June 2020...YEAR 6 MATHS...you will know where YOU are with this week's learning. You may still be looking back to work reinforcing your learning using the YEAR 5 work or you may be moving onto yesterday's AREA of TRIANGLES work. If you have completed the tasks set everyday then you may be ready to use your rectangle and triangle knowledge to complete AREA of PARALLELOGRAMS... Here you will find two PowerPoints and the accompanying work. Be selective...you don't HAVE to do it all!

Thursday 25th June 2020...YEAR 5 MATHS...you will know where YOU are with this week's learning. You may still be looking back to yesterday's work reinforcing Compound Shapes or you may be ready to move on to some Area and Perimeter Word Problems... Here you will find a set of CHALLENGE CARDS. They get harder; you don't have to do them all. Start at an appropriate level for you.

Week beginning Monday 22nd June 2020...SPELLING TASKS for the Week ahead...these are Yr 5/6 Spelling tasks from now on...a task for each day, ready for a test on Friday.

Wednesday 24th June 2020...ENGLISH...Today is all about assessing, editing and improving your poem. You will find a PowerPoint and a check sheet to help you. Make sure you have counted syllables carefully and that your poem has the same rhythm as the original.

Wednesday 24th June 2020...BBS Bitesize AREA of TRIANGLES.MATHS YEAR 6 (if you are ready to move on), today it's time for AREA of TRIANGLES. To make a change we will use a BBC Bitesize Daily Lesson- there is a Learning Summary, a video and 3 Interactive Learning Activities. I have also included another task for those of you who want to do a written task.

Wednesday 24th June 2020...YEAR 6 MATHS...AREA of TRIANGLES differentiated written tasks.

Well done with Monday's Jabberwocky work. I know the first (and last) verses are a bit weird but you all seem to have done well with your Portmanteau ideas.Today, TUESDAY 23rd JUNE 2020, you will need to go to Seesaw to look at the PowerPoint that talks about imitating the poem (writing your own which is similar in style) There are a couple of quite tricky pages on the PowerPoint but stick with it through the 'technical' bits...it gets easier again. Think really hard about the syllable count bit...that is the secret to successfully imitating a poem. There are planning sheets to help...the easier one just asks for two verses- the harder one rewrites the whole poem. You can go for something in between if you would rather. Use the planning sheet or don't - it's up to you. I look forward to being your audience when you post them on Seesaw.

Tuesday 23rd June 2020...MATHS...Some of the YEAR 6 are ready to move on to the 'AREA and PERIMETER' PowerPoint, others may still be looking at 'AREA of COMPOUND SHAPES'...either is fine - You know where YOU are. The PowerPoints are on Seesaw again...the differentiated work is below. Year 5s, you are moving on to 'AREA of COMPOUND SHAPES' today...again PowerPoints on Seesaw and your follow-up work is below.

Year 6 Numeracy Multiplication using the short method with decimals and whole numbers

Check with parents that they are happy for you to watch this You Tube video. This is a quick video to remind you of the importance of place value when multiplying decimals. You may need to do this when working out Area problems that included decimal measurements later in the week.

Monday 22nd June 2020...ENGLISH...Over the next couple of weeks we will be doing some work based on 'The Jabberwocky' a very famous poem written by Lewis Carroll. Today you need to read the poem (don't panic over the first verse - it's a bit strange but all will make sense in time!) Then you will need to look at the PowerPoint before completing the two tasks...Finally see what poetmanteau words of your own you can conjure up, and post them on Seesaw with an explanation. Enjoy!

Monday 22nd June 2020...MATHS...This week we are going to look back and recap AREA work. To calculate area accurately you need to multiply accurately. If you need to stop here and recap your Tables, do so. If you need a recap on written methods of multiplying, look back to May 6th below to rewatch my video and perhaps revisit the worksheets. If multiplying decimals crops up, there is a You Tube video below for you to watch. The PowerPoints are on Seesaw - they have been assigned as activities under the lightbulb. Please make sure that you look at the correct year group.. Today Year 5 will look at Area of Rectangles and Year 6 will take it a step further and look at Area of Compound Shapes. Remember a compound shape here is just two rectangles joined together. If the Year 6 work is too hard, go back to recap using the Year 5 work. If the Year 5 work is too easy, do the Year 6 work this week.

****Right before we get started today I want a fun register on Seesaw, Mrs B came up with the idea and I have added a twist! So I want you all to find something beginning with the second letter of your first name - the funnier the better. I would like to be put in the Fun register file on seesaw I will be awarding a prize in Special assembly on Friday to the winner! It must be in the file by the end of the school day on Wednesday! *******

Friday 12th June 2020...MATHS...More problems today. One is for UKS2 so will be harder, the other is for LKS2 so will be easier if this type of problem is new to you.

Wednesday 3rd June 2020...MATHS...YEAR 5 and 6. This SHOULD be revision but I have included a link to the BBC Bitesize clip. Remember - Multiples are answers in its times table and beyond so multiples of 5 include 5, 10, 15, 60 and 500. Factors...think horseshoe to find those factor pairs. A Prime is a number only divisible by itself and 1. In other words they aren't answers in any times tables other than that of themself and 1...There is a PowerPoint for eachyear group to watch then differentiated tasks for you to choose from. Finally there's a code Cracking Sheet if you would like to have a go..

Today I want you to read through the PowerPoints about Climate Change. One is Upper Key Stage 2 (see the link to open on TWINKL) the other (with the polar bear on the front) is slightly easier. Your task is to take each of the Keywords on the final page of the Powerpoint and use it within a sentence to show that you understand its meaning. You are not necessarily writing a definition...you are using the word to tell me a fact.
