You can contact Mrs Hamilton at   mrshamilton@lmp.org.uk   if you have any questions.

Thursday Y6 in school – we will play some of your games and complete some Kahoots!

This would be our PE afternoon so please remember to do some exercise! Can you make up your own games like the SSP ones? Do you have any home equipment that can be made into a game? Could something be used as a ‘goal/net’? Could something be aimed at the ‘goal/net’ – not breakable (check with parents!) Could you make the challenge more difficult for older children, or easier for younger children – how? What would you change?

As we head towards the end of the school year – strange one as it has been – I would like the Year 5 pupils to create a WORD ART shape for the Year  6 leavers. If you have gone on the site (wordart.com) you will know that there are so many different shapes that you can choose from. Please pick one and create a ‘Goodbye and good luck’ WORD ART for our Year 6 Leavers – as for many of them you will not see them before they go off to high school! Usually you would sign their shirts, but this is not possible this year, so if you could please do a good luck word art, I will print them for the Year 6 pupils to take away with them. This would be a really nice goodbye alternative gift. Thank you.

Y5 – click on CREATE NOW and you will see a cog turning around. Once it stops – go to SHAPES at the bottom. Choose ANY shape. CLICK YOUR CHOICE then choose Visualize (at the top in RED)

NEXT : on the left, above SHAPE is says WORDS. This brings up a small list of words. Click in the top box (word) and type a word of your choice (about Year 6 Leavers). Then go down to box 2 (cloud) choose another word, then click the next box (art) and choose another word. This will create a NEW box underneath – you can use as many words as you like in the list. If you want to see at any time how your words look click VISUALIZE.

You can change the colours – click on STYLE then click one of the colour boxes. It will bring you up all the colours that you might like to use (although there is a limit) choose ADD TO PALETTE – click CLOSE. If you then press CUSTOM more than once it will show you your shape with the colours changing each time.

The first word is the biggest, then they get smaller. You can play with the design – even adding numbers to the list to make some words bigger. There are lots and lots of shapes to choose from. There are lots and lots of fonts to choose from. There are lots and lots of colours to choose from. Have a play! There is a lighter blue box above your SHAPE that says Word Art. If you click in it you can name your creation. You can make as many as you like about anything you like! What a lovely gift on a birthday? For a friend/relative? But TODAY PLEASE – one for school on YEAR 6 LEAVERS.

If you want to save it and come back to it – you need to create an account. It is FREE – but you need an email (use your school one), a USERNAME and a PASSWORD (don’t lose them if you do this!) Click on SAVE and follow the instructions (you have to accept terms and conditions). They will send you a link email – click on that and your work is saved. You can also email us by choosing SHARE, drop down to EMAIL and email us! Put your name in the SUBJECT box or we will not have a clue who it is from!!

I look forward to seeing them os we can print them off.

Please  feel free to continue with CODING of any kind, and some exercise!

YEAR 5 HOUSE CHATS TODAY! This will be the last chat as we hope to see many of you on MONDAY 20TH JULY! YAY! We may have an activity for our last chat…

YEAR 5 GIRLS  at 10
YEAR 5 BOYS  at 10:30 – see you there!

Please copy Mrs Awbery into any work or emails you send from now on:  we want to ensure we respond to your emails as quickly as we can. Have Year 5 seen the note about maths support? We will video chat any problems.

THURSDAY ANSWERS Y5: https://resources.whiterosemaths.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Lesson-4-Answers-Translation.pdf

MATHS ACTIVITIES TO TRY:

Try an alternate Daily Ten. The practice site that allows you to be in charge of what you practice. Choose L5 or L6 (you don’t really need to go lower than that!).  You can pick the area of maths that you would like questions on. You will need a piece of paper to write down your answers.  Do as many or as few as you have time for.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10

This page has a wall that lets you choose what you practice – how about those Roman Numerals??

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/292/Montys-Maths-Wall

Revising TIME is always important:

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/118/adding_time_word_problems#

COUNTDOWN – challenge your family – or play to get the answer for yourself

https://nrich.maths.org/6499

YEAR 5: There are 2 sheets on the DRIVE that you can have a go at – they are a revision of lots of different maths. Each mat is quite a challenge – so you don’t have to do them both (or you could if you wanted to!)

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1GC-W2etf9YKHWNAinTeodD-qX_CEd4lA

FRIDAY AFTERNOON

Year 6  (and Y5) you can have a go at making another Kahoot (look back for how to do one!) Let’s make a note of the Username they give you (or choose if yours is not taken) and the Password (or you can’t get on at school – as we found out on Thursday!). Try to not make all the questions sooo specific that only close friends will be able to answer them – it’s a bit too tricky! Maybe General Knowledge would be good (but check you are correct with your answers before you make them into a Quiz!)

You can also have a go at this activity: Would you rather? (if the link is not working here – I have sent an email)

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1vNwrZIZuyx7Cb_-ikXMoNC1lW3FsTS5RA8A1OmFuLpo/edit#slide=id.p

Or  you could have a go at the sheet of ‘Guess the sweets’ – they could be sweets or chocolates. Put your answers on a Doc or Slide if you want to so we can see who is correct…. (If the link is not working here I have sent an email)

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_TwR7OVLPJQGwwMBPdqvV_YnEN3twV58/edit#heading=h.gjdgxs

 

Thursday 9th July

Please copy Mrs Awbery into any work or emails you send from now on:  we want to ensure we respond to your emails as quickly as we can. Have Year 5 seen the note about maths support? We will video chat any problems.

  • English:  Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

There have been several different Harry Potter book jackets over the years.  Your task is to design a new Harry Potter book jacket.  You will need to write a blurb for the back, and design a whole new exciting front cover.  Include your own Kid Normal style Harry Potter illustrations.  This task is for today’s and tomorrow’s English.

Please complete in your Home Learning book or on paper.

  • PE

We are happy for you to have a look at the SSP  videos and try your hand at home PE. There aren’t any new ones at the moment – do you think you could make a game up to play at home, using things that you might find at home? Could you create the game (and a set of how to play/rules) on a Google Slide? We could share your game with the others at home and see if we can create a winners board?

  • CODING

So WEDNESDAY is  our Coding afternoon. You will need to get onto ESPRESSO CODING. Our site address is on the letter that was sent home.  If you need it student23555 and the password is melton.

Let me know if there are any problems – we will try to sort them together. I do not have the sheet about what level you got to. It is fine for you to make the choice of where you start.

You can also have a look at SCRATCH coding online – this is something some of you have looked at at school. I have asked how to go about starting this off and this is the advice that I have been given (thanks Luca!) :

To get started you will need to make a SCRATCH account. https://scratch.mit.edu/

It is free. Then press JOIN SCRATCH and it will ask you for a username and password.  This is up to you to create and NOT LOSE!! To create a project press CREATE NEW. Some projects won’t work because you must become a SCRATCHER but that is for people who have got themselves onto the leader boards only. This is only an alternative – it is not something that you have to do. I hope you enjoy the coding!

I have found another site that allows you to use CODING, this time to instruct a Turtle and create patterns. You will need to create an account using email – please check with your parents that this is ok. The site is free and gives easy instructions as well as solutions. Give it a go if you would like to do something different for a change. There are some amazing patterns that can be made – I would like to see them on the website if you take a screen shot?

  • English: Big Write

In science, we have been thinking about eating healthy food.  Think of a healthy meal / food you enjoy.  Write a description of it, so that some who has never eaten it would know how it tastes.

Success Criteria:

  • Include how it looks
  • Include the texture (soft /crunchy etc..)
  • Include the flavour
  • Include why it’s a good thing to eat, e.g. it may contain calcium or iron
  • You could also include a picture

 

  • SCIENCE: Animals including humans – the HEALTHY EATING

Last week we thought about what makes a healthy diet.  I have shared a food journal with you on Google Drive.  It is just a simple table to fill out about the food you eat across a week.  You can print it and fill it out or redraw into your Home Learning book and complete in your book.

As you fill out your diary, think about the food you’re eating and whether your diet is a healthy balanced diet.

For one day, use the food groups poster (shared with you Google Drive) to indicate what food groups you are eating, e.g. you can colour code some of the foods, fruit and veg could be green.

Friday afternoon Y5. Last week I left information about creating a word art on LOCKDOWN. Thank you to those who have done one. I am asking once again for the children who have not done this to create a word art and send it to me with words to do with lockdown – we are planning to make a booklet out of them to send home next year – BUT I have not had anything from some of you! Please email me if you are not able to make one, otherwise, it is very easy and they look fab! Please look at LAST FRIDAY for the instructions as they are quite long!

For those Y5  (who have already done this) and for Y6 I have sent an email (Thursday afternoon) about a doodling exercise. It is just for a bit of fun really!

We are using KAHOOT for a bit of a change and it is possible to create your own quiz to set for the class or your friends! It is another FREE site for you to have a look at with adult help.

In this chapter, Harry and his friends find out more about Nicolas Flamel from a collectable card from a Chocolate Frog packet.  Choose a character from Harry Potter and create your own Chocolate Frog collectable card. It should include a picture and a few sentences about them.  E.g. important things they have done, their job, something about their lives.  Try to make it look like a collectable card as much as you can.  Consider the layout and design of the card.

You can also have a look at SCRATCH coding online – this is something some of you have looked at at school. I have asked how to go about starting this off and this is the advice that I have been given (thanks Luca!) :

To get started you will need to make a SCRATCH account. https://scratch.mit.edu/

It is free. Then press JOIN SCRATCH and it will ask you for a username and password.  This is up to you to create and NOT LOSE!! To create a project press CREATE NEW. Some projects won’t work because you must become a SCRATCHER but that is for people who have got themselves onto the leader boards only. This is only an alternative – it is not something that you have to do. I hope you enjoy the coding!

I have found another site that allows you to use CODING, this time to instruct a Turtle and create patterns. You will need to create an account using email – please check with your parents that this is ok. The site is free and gives easy instructions as well as solutions. Give it a go if you would like to do something different for a change. There are some amazing patterns that can be made – I would like to see them on the website if you take a screen shot?

  • English:  Big Write

TASK:  Sport commentary.

On Friday, you listen to chapter 11 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.  In this chapter, is Harry’s first Quidditch match.  We hear about most of the match from another character’s match commentary (Lee Jordan).  During lockdown, several sports commentators have been commentating on normal everyday events as though they are some sort of sport.  Watch the links below for ideas.

Your task is to write your own sports commentary of a normal everyday event in your family.  It could be, commentary in the style of a horse race, describing you and a sibling clearing the dinner table, or football match commentary about hanging out the washing.  It’s up to you!

  • SCIENCE: Animals including humans –  HEALTHY EATING

There are lots of fun online videos, interactive websites and quizzes here for you to enjoy!  You do not have to go to all, just try to ensure you get some good knowledge of what HEATHY EATING really means.

  • You could begin with watching a video in Espresso.

Go to Espresso / KS2 / Science / Bodies (upper) / videos / food and exercise

This is a good introduction into what food contains and what your body needs.

  • The link below is to BBC bitesize. This page contains a video and a quiz to test your knowledge.

  • Finally, the DK website again has excellent diagrams with built in links to further information. I have included links to the three main pages that it would be good for you to read, however there are links on the pages, so you may find you have found the second two pages yourself.

I have shared two discussion cards about food with you.  Discuss the questions with someone at home (or in class Y6).  If you want to, you can email me your ideas for each of the questions.
