Owls Home Learning – Friday 15th January

Hello Owls Class! Well done for making it through a full week of online learning – you’re all doing so well and becoming technical experts on Teams!
Here’s an idea of how you could structure your day:

9.15am – Morning chat and register (meeting)

English

10:30 – Breaktime

Maths

RE

12noon – Lunch

1:10 – Chat about afternoon activities (meeting)

PSHE

PE

2.50pm – End of the day catch up (meeting)

English:

In this lesson, we will look at the purpose of editing and why it is important. Then, we will break the editing checklist into two parts: one that checks for punctuation, spelling and sense; and the other for language choices, sentence types and structure. After we have practised editing, the children will be expected to edit their recounts from the previous lesson as their independent task.
Edit your recount on Onenote from yesterday – if you handed your work in I’ve had a look at it and I may have suggested something you can change to get you started.
Change your font colour when you are editing.
Maths:

Y5 LO: To identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed

Y6 LO: To describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants)

Today we will be looking at all four quadrants Watch the PowerPoint attached and then complete the worksheet for your year group. The stars tell you how difficult the sheet will be (*=developing **=expected ***=greater depth). You must do one reasoning & problem solving sheet and one varied fluency sheet. You can mark your work using the answers provided.

You can take a picture of your completed maths sheets and attach them to the assignment by clicking ‘Add work’. Remember to press ‘Hand-in’ so I know when you have completed your work.

*If you are finding this tricky, have a go at the Y4 work about position and direction to refresh your memory. 

Y4 – RPS – Draw on a Grid

Y4 – VF – Draw on a Grid

Y4 Powerpoint – Draw on a Grid

Y5 – Powerpoint – Reflection

Y5 – RPS – Reflection

Y5 – VF – Reflection

Y6 – Powerpoint – Position and Direction

Y6 – RPS – Four Quadrants

Y6 – VF – Four Quadrants

RE:

In RE today I want you to think about what you already know about the religion of Islam. It might have been a while ago since you covered it at school so you’ll have to dig deep into your memory!

You can choose how you display your knowledge of Islam (e.g a mindmap, a poster, a powerpoint, a leaflet etc). If you’re really stuck have a look at this BBC Bitesize page for some help What is Islam? – BBC Bitesize.
*Keyword clues: AllahMuhammad (pbuh), Qur’an.
Please attach your work to the Teams assignment by clicking ‘Add work’.
PSHE:
Today I would like you to think about how we care and show responsibility for others and how we show our concern.
Have a look at the document attached to see what your task for today is.
PE:

Have a go at completing this circuit. You can set a timer on Alexa/Ipad/Computer for one minute for each exercise. Count how many repetitions you do for each exercise.

1. Core: Plank 

2. Legs: Squat hold against the wall (backs straight against the wall and knees together, bend legs so knees are at a 90 degree angle and hold) 

3. Cardio: Shuttle runs  

4. Core: Arch hold (lying on tummy, hold arms above head and lift straight legs off the floor like superman) 

5. Arms: Push-ups (can decide to go on knees or feet) 

6. Cardio: Star jumps 

7. Core: Sit-ups  

8. Legs: Rock back jumps (on a mat – sit down, rock to shoulders, rock back to stand up and do a straight jump, repeat) 

9. Cardio: Burpees 

10. Core: Tuck hold (on a mat – sit back and lift feet off of floor in a tuck shape and balance) 

11. Arms: Tricep dips (on a chair or step– sit down, hands facing forwards, lift bottom off chair  and move feet away, bend at the arms and push back up again) 

12. Cardio: Skipping  

You can record your number of repetitions on the Circuit record sheet

Have a good day, and a lovely weekend!

Where did the Anglo-Saxons come from?

Why did they more to Britain?

What sorts of jobs did they do?

What language did they speak?

What did they believe in?

You can add other facts and pictures that interest you.

Year 5 Handwriting Practice – Cursive

Year 6 Handwriting Practice – Cursive

*English – continuing the Oak Academy unit.  Using the link below, follow the instructions in the lesson to work through the teaching video and the related activity.

To practise and apply knowledge of letter strings: ough, ear, ou, au, ice including test (thenational.academy)

*Maths –  Today, we are looking at fractions of an amount.  Take a look at the PowerPoint before completing the worksheets for your year group.  Remember that the question sheets are divided into 2 strands :Reasoning and Problem Solving (RPS) and Verbal Fluency (VF) and into 3 levels of difficulty (developing, expected and greater depth.  You only need to complete one of the three levels of difficulty for each strand i.e. Year 6 expected RPS and VF.  The answers are included at the back of each set for you to mark your work.

Year-5-6-Spring-Block-1-Step-22-PPT

Y3-Spring-Block-5-WO7-Fractions-of-a-set-of-objects-1-2019

*Reading – Make sure that you are spending at least 15 minutes per day reading for pleasure.  Keep a log of the title and pages read in your book.

*Science – Last week, I asked you to look at the work of Carl Linnaeus and his classification system of living things.  Hopefully, you thought about how important it is to have a system of classifying livings things and what it would be like without it.  Think of it as a filing system that helps with identification or a gigantic family tree.

So today, we are going to look at invertebrates.

Take a look at the following and write down the most interesting fact from either.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zmj8q6f

https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/animals-and-nature/invertebrates/

Looking at the classification system, a wolf spider would fit as follows:

Capture

As you can see, a wolf spider is the species name but it also falls into the class of arthropods.  This means it has some of the same characteristics as crustaceans like crabs i.e. a hard outside skeleton.  Today, I would like you to us the sheets below to find out more about the characteristics of invertebrates.  There are 8 different sections but you do not have to complete all 8, you can pick at least 4 of your choice.

ESResource6.3.3Invertebratesharder

*TTRockstars – spend any spare minutes rocking on through those tables.

Complete your work in the exercise books sent home last term and please send photos of what you have done to me at hollis.c@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk or admin@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk.

Have a great day and I will hopefully see you throughout the day on TEAMS.

Owl Class Home Learning 11.1.21

Good morning Owls.  I hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to get out for some fresh air.  It was fab to see so many of you on Friday for our first Teams meeting.  Hopefully, you are joining our TEAMS meeting at 9.15am this morning; I can’t wait to see you all again.  This week, we will be gradually getting to grips with using some of the features of TEAMS and holding 3 daily meetings.  We will have a catch up TEAMS meeting at 1pm today to discuss the morning’s work and to go through the afternoon task with a final TEAMS meeting at 2.50pm to say goodbye and see how your day has gone.  I have included a suggested timetable for how you could organise your learning below around the meeting and breaktimes.

2.50pm TEAMS catch up

In case the technology fails (or the teacher in my case), I am also posting copies of all of the links and resources as usual each day so that if things go wrong with TEAMS or you can’t find something, you know where to look.

So, here is today’s work:

*Spellings – spend some time today continuing to learning your spellings for the week (Miss Horton posted them last Thursday and is planning a spelling test this Thursday on TEAMS).  You could use the PowerPoint below to look at the pattern/meanings of words.

Year 5 Handwriting Practice – Cursive

Year 5 spellings PowerPoint

Year 6 Handwriting Practice – Cursive

Year 6 spellings PowerPoint

*English – we will be continuing the unit begun last week on Oak Academy.  Using the link below, follow the instructions in the lesson to work through the teaching video and the related activity.

To write the opening paragraph (thenational.academy)

*Maths –  Year 6:

Today, we are looking at the four operations and fractions (+-x÷).  Take a look at the PowerPoint before completing the worksheets.  Remember that the question sheets are divided into 2 strands :Reasoning and Problem Solving (RPS) and Verbal Fluency (VF) and into 3 levels of difficulty (developing, expected and greater depth.  You only need to complete one of the three levels of difficulty for each strand i.e. Year 6 expected RPS and VF.  The answers are included at the back of each set for you to mark your work.

Year-5-6-Spring-Block-1-Step-21-PPT

Year-6-Spring-Block-1-Step 21-VF-Four-Rules-with-Fractions

Year-6-Spring-Block-1-Step-21-RPS-Four-Rules-with-Fractions

Maths – Year 5:

Year-5-Spring-Block-2-Step-18-PPT-Multiply-Mixed-Numbers-by-Integers

Year-5-Spring-Block-2-Step-18-RPS-Multiply-Mixed-Numbers-by-Integers

Year-5-Spring-Block-2-Step-18-VF-Multiply-Mixed-Numbers-by-Integers

If either of the above are too tricky, try a bit more practice subtracting fractions using the PowerPoint and sheets below:

Year-4-Spring-Block-3-Step-7-PPT-Subtract-2-Fractions

Year-4-Spring-Block-3-Step-7-RPS-Subtract-2-Fractions

Year-4-Spring-Block-3-Step-7-VF-Subtract-2-Fractions

*Reading – Make sure that you are spending at least 15 minutes per day reading for pleasure.  Elevenses with David Walliams is also back, starting with The Boy in the Dress.  These are audio clips of his complete stories, a few chapters a day.

*PE – As this afternoon is one of our PE afternoons, I want you to find something active to do.   As with the last lockdown, you may have to get a bit creative!  So, with that in mind, how about going for a family walk/bike ride, trampolining in the garden, devise a garden circuit and test it out, set yourself some 60 second challenges such as how many star jumps can you do in a minute etc?  Also, Joe Wicks is posting new PE with Joe workouts on a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday (live at 9am or catch up on his YouTube channel).  Remember that physical exercise and fresh air is as important as schoolwork.

*TTRockstars – spend any spare minutes rocking on through those tables.

Complete your work in the exercise books sent home last term and please send photos of what you have done to me at hollis.c@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk or admin@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk.  We are working on ways of you saving your work in TEAMS to save you having to send evidence to us but that is a work in progress so bear with us.

Have a great day and I will hopefully see you throughout the day on TEAMS.
