Wellbeing

Dear Year 5,

Please look at the chart attached and draw it onto a piece of paper.

Write down three negative thoughts you may have had and go through the columns in order to help you balance out that negative thought.

If you can't think of any examples use your imagination and get creative!

Please keep your work in a notebook because it will be stuck into your wellbeing books once you return to school.

Warm Regards

Mrs Brocker

 

9:30-10:15 Guided Reading

Know (understanding)

LO: To understand how a writer uses inference in a text.

SC1. I can explain what inference is.

SC2. I can give examples of inference from the text.

SC3. I can explain why an author wants us to use the skill of inference.

Each day, as well as including the text for you to read, I am also including the audio recording of the chapter. You should only use this is you feel you need support to develop your understanding of the text and/or to support you with your reading.

 

 

Group One – Ch 20

Use a dictionary to find the following words:

Conspiracy

Ominous

Skittish

Dispersed

Gait

This chapter is about the horse sale and what the soldiers try to do to save Joey. Answer the following questions in your books, using the text to support your answers:

1) What does the author mean by “There was an air of determined conspiracy”?

2) Why had an “ominous shadow fallen one the yard”?

3) The men at the auction are described as having “red, craggy faces and grasping, greedy eyes.” Why do you think the author chose to describe them this way?

4) Why was Emilie’s grandfather’s face “set with grim determination”? What can you infer about how he is feeling?

 

Group Two – Page 171-174

Use a dictionary to find the following words

Grasping

Defeat

Grim

This chapter is about the horse sale and what the soldiers try to do to save Joey. Answer the following questions in your books, using the text to support your answers:

1) The men at the auction are described as having “red, craggy faces and grasping, greedy eyes.” Why do you think the author chose to describe them this way?

2) Why was Emilie’s grandfather’s face “set with grim determination”? What can you infer about how he is feeling?

 

10:15-11:00 Maths

Show (applying)
L.O. To use the steps required when using the compact method (no regrouping)
SC1: I can present my work neatly
SC2: I can include all the steps required
SC3: I can solve multiplication problems (4-digit x 2-digit)

Today we are demonstrating the knowledge we learned yesterday by using the same method but multiplying a 4-digit number by a 2-digit number. It is still important to follow the steps, writing out the calculations in brackets to the right - this is particularly useful when multiplying the tens digit and you need to remember the place holder.

Watch the tutorial, work through the example and then move onto the questions on the PowerPoint, including the extensions. Mark your own work using the separate PowerPoint.

 

 

11:00-11:15 Break

 

11:15-12:30 English

Show (analysing)
LO: To be able to edit and revise a piece of writing.
SC1. I can consider strategies for improving my writing.
SC2. I can choose vocabulary which engages the reader.
SC3. I can edit a text, checking that I have challenged myself.
SC4. I can rewrite my edited text in full.

Today, you will be editing and revising your piece of writing. If you sent me your first section last night you will have received some notes about your work and you will need to use these to help you edit your work.

When editing, you must really challenge yourself to consider how you can improve your work. This is not always an easy task but it is one which is worth doing as it will help you lift your work to the next level.

To help you edit and revise your writing I have included a PowerPoint and a video.

 

 

12:30-1:30 Lunch

1:30-1:40 Forest School

Here is a short video and a fun task for you to complete.

 

 

 

1:40-3:00 History

Show (applying)
L.O. To design your own trench system
SC1: I can use my knowledge of trench shape and structure
SC2: I can include details of trench components
SC3: I can describe the sections and components

Today you are going to be combining all that you have learned over the last couple of weeks to produce your final outcome - your own trench system. You can refer to the work you have created in the previous days to help you.

You can either draw your trench system on a piece of paper or you can build it using objects and materials you have available to you in your home.

Task 1: Sketch out/Build your trench system. Include the different sections of the trench.
Task 2: Label the different areas.
Task 3: Describe the components included in your trench

Today you will produce your first draft so will be editing and improving it tomorrow for your final product. To allow yourself to focus on adding finer details, make sure that you add plenty of information in today's product. Check that you have the different areas of the trench (communication trench, front line trench etc) - use the image below and guide from earlier in the week to support you. What components are included? Have you got the most important items required, such as a signalling post or periscope? Have you used your widening vocabulary to describe the different elements?

I will look at your draft and provide feedback that will support you in producing your final product tomorrow. This feedback will be given in time for your History lesson tomorrow afternoon.

3:00-3:15 TTRockstars

Take part in the TTRockstars Year 5 challenge. Over the next few weeks Kingfishers and Sparrow Hawks will be challenging each other to see which class  is the best at timetables.
