 Good morning!

Please see below our home learning for this week:

 

 Friday 30th September 2022

If you have a device, try to login and do some Whizz Maths to start your day.

 

Maths: Today I want you to try this challenge using negative numbers!

I've put the answers here too so you can check your work.

 

English: Today our English work is about adverbs of possibility...so how likely something is to happen.

Pick up to 6 questions from these sheets and write them on a piece of paper.

 

Reading: Try to spend around 15 minutes reading your book at home. If you don't have your school book, just read any that you might have at home...this includes magazines and comics.

 

It's our Macmillan Coffee afternoon in school so we are having an arty afternoon!

In school we're going to make our own Anglo Saxon crosses.

If you have any cardboard or any art resources at home, why not see if you can make one too!

There's a picture here to give you an idea.

 

Thursday 29th September

Maths: Today your maths is about negative numbers. Click here for the lesson.

Have a go at the questions here.

 

English: I want you to start planning your own story today. Your story will either be Beowolf versus Grendel's Mother or Beowolf versus Dragon. Start making some notes about the opening...build-up, problem, resolution and ending. You can use some of the key parts of the original Beowolf story to help you and just add a couple of your own ideas.

 

Reading: Try to spend around 15 minutes reading your book at home. If you don't have your school book, just read any that you might have at home...this includes magazines and comics.

 

History: Click here to look at the first page of the Gospel of Luke from the Lindisfarne Gospels. Who do you think wrote it? How do you think it was made? Why do you think so much time was spent on decorating it? Today I would like you to choose a letter from our alphabet and see if you can create a beautifully decorated one just like the Lindisfarne example. Take your time!

 

 

Wednesday 28th September 

If you have a device, try to login and do some Whizz Maths to start your day.

 

Maths: Today your maths work is about rounding any number. Click here for the presentation.

Now try these questions

 

English: Look at the image cards showing pictures of Beowulf’s other battles. What do you think might happen in each of them?

Choose one of the pictures and have a go at writing a description of the battle taking place. Remember to try to include strong adjectives that help to create atmosphere.

 

Reading: Try to spend around 15 minutes reading your book at home. If you don't have your school book, just read any that you might have at home...this includes magazines and comics

 

Art: Have a look at the this painting. How does the painting make you feel? Can you answer these questions:

What can you see in this painting?
How many different groups of people can you see?
Why are they wearing uniforms?
Why do we all wear the same uniform? How does it connect us?
Where do you think they are? Why?
What about the main group, in the centre? How many are there? What do you notice
about them?
Is anyone in the group different and why?
What about the group lying down, why are they there and what might they be waiting for?

Your next task is to try to recreate the painting but in your own style. You can use any art resources that you have at home.

Don't forget to put a photo of the finished creation on Dojo!!

If you have a device, try to login and do some Whizz Maths to start your day.

 

Maths: Today we are comparing and ordering any numbers. Click here to watch the lesson. 

Next see how you get on with the questions here.

 

English: We need to think about how the writer created atmosphere in the model text from Beowolf. 

Read through the extract again form yesterday and highlight any words or phrases that you think really add to the atmosphere created.

Choose a couple of your highlighted lines and see if you can make them even better...are there different adjectives that you could add?

 

Handwriting: Our handwriting focus this week is the letter 'l'. Try to copy the letters on the activity sheet as carefully as you can...take care with the joins!

 

Reading: Try to spend around 15 minutes reading your book at home. If you don't have your school book, just read any that you might have at home...this includes magazines and comics!

 

Science: Today we are carrying on with our learning about Earth and Space. Have a go at writing down the names of all the planets...can you remember them all?

I would like you to have a go at completeing sheet 2b now to help your understanding of all the vocabulary we are learning. Click here for the activity but remember that you don't need to print it off!

Why not have a go at creating your own model of the Earth, sun and moon?

If you have a device, try to login and do some Whizz Maths to start your day.

 

Maths: Today we are looking at and using number lines to 10,000,000. Click here to watch the presentation.

Now have a go at the questions here. You don't need to print off the questions. Just write your answers on a piece of paper.

 

English: Read through the model text from Beowolf again. Click here for a copy. Your task today is to start 'boxing up' the text...splitting the story into sections.

There is a template here to help you. Try to keep your notes brief in each section...you don't need to write too much.

RE: We continue our work about Life as a Journey today. Try to think about any journeys you have made...where did you go? What happened on the journey? Why did you make that journey?

Next, think about your life so far. Try to think about key things that have already happened to you...where were you born? Did you have a baptism? Have you been to any special family events like a wedding or a party to celebrate a special birthday? Remember to include holidays you  might have been on. Don't forget about your first day at school!

Your challenge is to create a map of your life journey so far. Draw the key events in the order they happened and remember to write what each one is.

 

Cumbria Award: The first part of the Cumbria Award that we are looking at is all about the culture of our county. Have a go at creating your own mind map about Cumbria. Try to include everything that you already know about Cumbria. You can ask an adult for their ideas too if they have time!
