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.

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.

Today you will be learning about stop motion animation, you will plan a storyboard for your own animation about online safety.
I have created a Onenote document on Teams for what you need to do today. You have some videos to watch and questions to answer based on the videos. Click on the links on the document to watch the videos and type your answer directly onto the onenote document. As soon as you start typing the document will starting saving your work so your work is being saved as you go along – very clever! You can take a picture of your storyboard and attach it to your assignment by pressing ‘Add work’. Remember to press ‘Hand-in’ when you have completed all your work
Please have a go at completing and accessing your work on teams. If you are really struggling to do this you can click on the link below which will take you to a word document with everything you need to complete.
Complete your work in the exercise books sent home last term and/or upload photos of your work to each assignment if possible as introduced on Teams meetings this week.  If you’re struggling, please send photos of what you have done to me at horton.z@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk or admin@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk.
