Owls Home Learning – Thursday 14th January

Good Morning Owls! It’s Miss Horton here 😊 I hope you’ve all had a good week so far, you can tell me all about it at our TEAMs meeting this morning. Mrs Hollis said you’re all getting to grips with using TEAMs now, which is great news.

Here is your timetable for today but remember this is only a guide and you can work through the lessons at your own speed. Please attend the spelling test meeting for your year group (don’t worry you won’t have to announce your scores to everyone!). I would like to see as many of you as possible at our 9am meeting so we can all say hello to each other.

I will be online all day to answer any questions or queries you have. If you have any problems please use the ‘Ask the Teacher’ channel.

9.15am – Morning chat and register (meeting)

9:45  – Y5 Spelling Test – bring your pen and paper! (meeting)

10:15 – Y6 Spelling Test – bring your pen and paper! (meeting)

You can fit your English lesson in between these meetings (they shouldn’t last too long)

10:30 – Breaktime

Follow this link: To write a recount (thenational.academy)

In this lesson, you will start off by investigating which sentence starters are appropriate for newspaper reports. Then, you will look over your plans from the previous lesson and use them to inform your writing when writing a recount. You will also be using the success criteria to support you in your writing. You will look at a shared piece of writing, followed by a modelled piece of writing. Both methods will support you to write your own recounts.
I have attached a notebook page to this assignment on Teams so that you can type your work on, alternatively you can write your work in your book and attach it to the assignment by pressing ‘add work’ and uploading a picture. Remember to press ‘hand in’ when you have completed the work so that we can see when you have done your work.

Today we will be looking at position and translation in the first quadrant. 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.

Task Two : English. L/O: To describe a setting.

Today I would like you to use your own word bank (from yesterday) or use some of the language shared on the Teams Assignment for this task to write a story opening where the setting has been described effectively.

Here is an example by ‘Boring Miss Whit’!

A boy walked in the woods. There were tall trees. It was peaceful. The woodland felt calm but he felt a little lonely. Birds tweeted in the trees.

Can you do better? Of course. Go Dragonflies!

If you can, write this on the Assignment document as I can mark it with more detail 🙂


Task Three: Music 2pm – Mr Butler will be delivering LIVE Recorders and Music today!


Task Four: PSHE & Computing L/O; To think about how we use the internet everyday.

L/O: To consider how we use the internet.

As discussed in our meeting earlier, we are all using the internet and computers as a huge part of our daily lives at the moment. This technology can be brilliant! But is also needs to be used mindfully.

Your task is to create a poster which shows the rules which you think Dragonfly Class need to remember whilst we are learning at home using Microsoft Teams, live video calls and the internet including sending messages through chat, using The Playground and choosing emojis. There are lots of rules we should be following but pick a few that you think are most important to you at the moment.

Have a look at the links below for some ideas (you don’t have to do them all!)

How can you use the internet safely?

Keeping Safe Online

The Smart Crew – lots of activities, perhaps choose one or two to look at

Send your poster as a photo attachment to the Assignment if you can. Good luck!


See you on Teams

We made one wreath from tinsel and another with foliage. They were easy to do (we wound the tinsel or willow/foliage) around the frame and ta-da!

If you would like to make one with your child at home, please let us know and we will send home the metal ring that you will need to get going. Simply follow our picture instructions or get creative and design your own. We’d love to see photos of the finished results.884DF8BE-2DD5-4B60-A4AF-936B2CA32A3A 0084E9F3-82AE-446E-B50A-1D957D5B260B
