Good morning, here are your tasks for today:

*English – Today, begin by reading the next page in our text and looking at the image of the French cafe where Lydia’s parents work.

Did you spot Lydia’s parents in the picture?  What do you think they feel about their jobs?

Take a look at the photos below of French cafes and restaurants.  You could even listen to some French music too using the YouTube link.  Add some speech/thought bubbles to explain what the people in the pictures might be saying/thinking.

Cafe pictures

What do you think the atmosphere would be like in these cafes?  What could we see/hear?  I think there would be lots of hustle and bustle, people chatting, laughing etc.  Add some ideas to the see/hear grid below (I have added some ideas to get you started).  Focus on expanded noun phrases (tinkling piano keys) as well as prepositional phrases (where things are i.e. in the corner of the cafe).

See hear grid Wednesday

We will be using these ideas in our writing tomorrow.

*Maths – Today, we are going to have some more practise of the short multiplication method for multiplying that we started yesterday.  Below are pages of calculations to have a go at (choose whichever level you feel is most appropriate for you – the first is an easier Year 5 page (p.36), second image is Year 5 (p.37)and the final image is Year 6 (p.11) as it tackles multiplying whole and decimal numbers.

Good morning, here are your tasks for today:

*English – Today, we are going to write a description of the scene from yesterday’s section of text where Lydia’s mother was sewing a star onto Lydia’s coat.  In your description, you need to get a balance of action, description and speech.  Take a look at the attached model.  In this, I have tried to use some speech sandwiches!  These aren’t snacks but follows this pattern – speaker 1 speaks, speaker 1 does something, speaker 2 does something, something happens in the background, speaker 2 speaks.  See if you can spot each of these elements in my model then have a go at writing your own.

Scene writing model 13.10.20

*Maths – Take a look at the attached PowerPoint on multiplication.  It is aimed at Year 5 as it is a revision of short multiplication as it may have been a while since we looked at it together.  When you have worked through the PowerPoint, have ago at the worksheet you feel most confident with i.e. Expected, completing both the VF (varied fluency) and RPS (reasoning and problem solving) for your chosen level.

Good morning, here are your tasks for today:

*English – We are continuing to look at our new text: ‘Star of Fear, Star of Hope’ by Jo Hoestlandt.  Begin by reading the attached quotes -some of which are from our text and some are from another text called ‘Erica’s story’.  Highlight any key words i.e. hope, star etc.  Can you predict what the story will be about from these quotes?  Also, take a look at the front cover to help you.  Jot down your ideas.

Quotes

Star of hope, star of fear front cover

Next, look at the image of the 2 girls playing together.  When could the story be set?  What clues could you look at?  Look at the clothes, toys, hairstyles etc.

Now, read the text below that goes with the picture above.

IMG_1068

What have we found out?  What type of story is this?  Look at the tense change from present to past – what does this show us about when Helen is writing this story?  (She is writing in the present day and flashing back to her memories of 1942.  What does Lydia’s mother mean about the star she is sewing on?  Do you agrees with her statement about stars at the end of the page?

Think about the scene between the 3 characters – what questions might Helen and Lydia want to ask Lydia’s mother?

Tomorrow, we will be writing about this scene using speech and speech punctuation.

*Maths – Take a look at the attached PowerPoint and then complete the worksheets for your year group.  Each year group’s section has 2 worksheets (3 levels of difficulty – developing, expected and greater depth) and the answers.  Remember that you only need to complete one level for each area – VF (varied fluency) and RPS (reasoning and problem solving).

Morning, here are today’s tasks:

*English – To finish off our topic, we are writing a travel blog about a visit to Niagara Falls.  The purpose of the blog is to persuade people to visit the falls.  I have attached a list of features that I would like to see in your writing – all of which we have looked at across the unit in school.  As inspiration, I have included a section of a ‘Lonely Planet’ guide below to get you started.

‘Welcome to Niagara Falls – an unstoppable flow of rushing water surges over the arcing fault in the riverbed with thunderous force. Great plumes of icy mist rise for hundreds of metres as the waters collide. Thousands of onlookers delight in the spectacle every day, drawn by the force of the current and the hypnotic mist.’
