Working together for success and happiness

Tuesday 23rd Feb


Today we'd like you to clarify the meaning of certain words from chapter 10. You don't have to read the whole chapter to do this, you can simply look at the page the words are in. Remember, clarifying means we explain the meaning of the words we may not be familiar with. Try to clarify these by using the text to help you understand.

Watch the video below to understand the skill 'clarifying'.

Often, reading the sentence before the word, the sentence it is in and the sentence after is helpful when working out the meaning. Try to clarify in your own words before checking in a dictionary. We'd also like you to think about the words type too:


Verb= Action word e.g. jumping/jumped/jump

Noun= person/place/thing e.g. farm, cow, bucket etc.

Adjective= describes a noun e.g. dazzling, beautiful, terrifying 

Adverb= describes an action e.g. slowly, bravely, quickly 


The words to clarify are on the sheet below.

Pick one of the LEGO Superheroes and create a spider diagram about your character. Think about their appearance, super powers and their weaknesses. Try and add as much detail as you can. 


For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Fractions'. 

This morning we would like you to look at: Counting in Fractions 

Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks. 

There are slides too (same as the video) if you need to look at this more slowly and carefully. 


Then, complete the worksheet. Look at the questions on a screen and write your answers on paper. Remember, the later questions are normally problem solving and reasoning questions so give these your best shot. You may need a little bit of adult explanation for these.

Today in ICT we are carrying on with our topic on internet safety. This lesson was previously on Tuesday 9th February but due to Safer Internet Day, we have moved it to today. Some of you may have already done this lesson, if so there is an Art lesson for you instead. See below for details.


If you want to have a go at the Art lesson, once you have done the ICT lesson, that is fine but don't feel you have to! 


Last time, we looked at ways to be safe when on the internet. We used the S.M.A.R.T rules. Can you remember them? 


Let's have a little recap.


Today we are focusing on our are digital footprint. This sounds a very funny thing to say! What do you think it means? 

If you can, discuss what you think this could be with an adult. 


Have a look at the power point below and go through each slide. It will explain what a digital footprint is. There are tasks on there for you to complete. 


As part of our 'Strikes and Flying Pickets' topic, we have been looking at the artist, Pete McKee. Pete McKee is an Sheffield artist. He uses observational character study to create his artwork in a cartoon style. 


Today, we would like you to create a picture of your family in the style of Pete McKee. Pick an everyday activity that you and your family do and try and draw it in the style of Pete McKee,  for example, you could draw your mum or dad doing the washing up, you and your family watching TV or you playing a game. The choices are endless!
