Monday 1st Feb
This week we will be focusing on chapters 7 and 8.
Today we would like you to read both chapters 7 and 8 of Charlotte's Web. As you read, keep thinking about the events that have happened already. Keep making predictions as you read and visualize the events in your head as they happen. You may find it helpful to make some summary notes as you go today, to keep track of the events that happen in each chapter.
Predict what you think will happen in chapter 9 in less than 30 words. Watch the video below to find out what predicting means.
In English today, we will be continuing our new writing sequence... MARY POPPINS!
This will all lead up to writing a diary entry as though you have spent the week with Mary Poppins herself!
Now that you have developed your vocabulary and gathered all of the words to use for the topic, we will move on to the next part of the writing sequence where we ANALYSE an example of a text. Here we will look at a WAGOLL- What A Good One Looks Like.
Have a look at the WAGOLL on the link underneath. Read through this example of a dairy entry.
A diary entry is a type of recount writing. A recount retells an event or experience someone has had. This recount is from the point of view of Jane after she's spent some time with Mary Poppins.
Look at the sheet about what you can find in a diary. See if you can spot these in our WAGOLL. It also gives you some grammar features to try and find too.
Finally, look at the WAGOLL and find the key vocabulary you learnt last week e.g. spotless, mischievous, spoilt etc.
You could find all of these things in the WAGOLL and label them if you are able to print or simply locate them in the WAGOLL.
We have now come to the end of our blocks on 'Multiplication and Division' and 'Area'. Before we move on to the next block, we think it is important to do some revision and consolidation of everything covered so far this term.
For the rest of this week, we will be giving you some sheets that have a range of questions covered in these two blocks.
Here are a few tips to help you on your way:
- Use the methods looked at in that block
- Draw out or use counters to help with multiplication and division
- Use any equipment you have at home to help you e.g. coins, sweets, Lego etc.
- Use a multiplication grid to help with any times table questions
Remember, these sheets are to help you practice and revise what we have covered so it's all to help you on your way!
Today, we'll be looking at area. Complete the sheet below and then mark it to see how far you've come this term already!
Not only does our Strikes and Flying Pickets topic cover History and Geography but Art as well!
In Art today, we are going to be continuing our new topic where we look at the work of local, Sheffield artist Pete McKee.
We are going to be looking at the clothing and tools miners would have used. Begin by following the slides. It gives you some questions to think about and images to look at. It also explains the tasks. Use Ms McKeller's amazing sketchbook pages to help you too! These can be found at the bottom of this page.
There are two tasks to try today.
Task 1- Sketching mining objects/clothing in a realistic style.
Task 2- Drawing mining objects/clothing and a miner in a McKee Style.
The slides explain the tasks in more detail!
Good luck with your creations! We can't wait to see them!
