Weekly newsletter

Lockdown Learning

We love receiving all the work and photos you send to us and will mark/comment on anything sent. Please be aware that we will be contactable via email between 8.30am and 6pm each day. Any work sent after 6pm will be marked on the next working day.

 

EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING

It is essential for us all to take time to think about our emotional health. Please find some time each day to look at the ELSA activity of the day on the website above. It starts with 'Mighty Monday' 

 

School Assembly 

Rev Matt has recorded an assembly for you to watch. It can be found in the videos section under the 'Children' tab or from the link below

https://cherhill-cofe-va-primary.primarysite.media/media/school-assembly-wc-11th-jan

 

 

It has been requested that we put work for the whole week onto the web page, instead of adding tasks daily (we will try our best!). This does mean that if you miss a piece of work you can look back to catch up, or if work is going really well you can carry on with the next day's tasks.

 

From this week we will be highlighting 3 pieces of work (one English, one maths and one other subject) that we would like to see handed in by all children. We are still happy to see all other completed work, so don't stop sending that in as well. We also love receiving the super photographs you send in as they help us create our weekly newsletters (which will start next week). If you send in a photo and do not wish it to be part of the newsletter please just state that in the email.

 

We realise that home-learning is not easy for anyone (children or parents) and appreciate the effort everyone is putting in. Keep up the good work folks and hopefully we will be back in class with you all soon.

 

Please contact us if you need any support. 

 

If you need some extra ideas then scroll down right to the bottom of this page (below all the photos) and there are some extra websites and resources listed that you can use.

 

Stay safe everyone, we will hopefully see you all soon.

  • Then complete the sentence challenge (p 7 – p9 in the booklet)
  • Do the same for at least 3 other words you have underlined in the text.

Maths 

Group 1 - zoom session - you will need a pencil and paper (plus a times table grid if you usually use one)

  • Finally test your self with one of the tests. Remember to time yourself and see if you can improve your time.

 

PE

You have a choice of activities today, pick which one you will enjoy. The choices are:

  • PH Sport activities (continued from last week) http://phsports.co.uk/resources-for-schools/ click on the KS2 lesson (there is also a video linked to it). Miss Webb has also left a short video for you to watch, this can be found in the 'School Video' section of the school web site (Click on 'Children' tab and scan down to 'School videos' )- this link might also work https://cherhill-cofe-va-primary.primarysite.media/media/message-from-miss-webb
  • Your second option is to take part in a national skipping challenge. Go to https://www.wiltssport.org.uk/get-informed/news/2942-skipping-challenges and then click on KS2 there will be some videos for you to watch and under them are the actual challenges. Can you improve your skipping technique and stamina. Please let me know if you have a go at this as it counts towards a PE award that the school is working towards.

 

Art

After the super WW2 planes you created last week I would like you to try and make a model one. Now, you can be amazingly creative and use resources around the house to create your plane or you could use the sheet provided. If you use the sheet, please use it as a template so that you can decorate your own plane.

Science

I have created a short 'lesson video' to give you instructions for this lesson (it can be found in the 'School video' section of the school web site) or at https://cherhill-cofe-va-primary.primarysite.media/media/which-material-makes-the-best-parachute 

For those of you who don't have access to my video (lucky you!), the idea of the lesson is as follows.

Think back to the lesson we had on air resistance, where we built parachutes and tested them. This time I want you to think about the materials that the parachutes are made from and which is the best one. Create 2 or 3 parachutes from different materials (paper, plastic bag, fabric etc). We used string tied to the corners and a weight on the end, last time we did it. Then drop the parachutes and see how long they take to reach the ground. Record the time. Remember to test each parachute more than once to check your results. The parachute that takes the longest to reach the ground is the best material. Please think about 'fair testing'. Write up your investigation on the attached sheet. Please send this sheet to me so I can mark it.

Have fun.

English

A few activities to complete today:

  • Box up 'The Game' story using the box up sheet from resources (only the first blank column, you will do the other later on).

  • Then write a paragraph about your  likes, dislikes, puzzles and surprises from 'The Game'. (see p9-10 in the booklet)

  • Finally, complete the grammar exercises about sentence punctuation on pages 36 - 39 in your grammar book. (Or from the resources section)

 

Maths

  • Complete two more of the 4times table wheels (the resource you used on Monday)
  • Complete a 4 times table test, are you getting faster? 
  • You are goign to work on multiplying decimals, which is sometimes quicker done mentally than in a written format (we will use both this week). Today we will start with some mental strategies you can use (you may need your times table grid to help with this). Watch the video https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/multiplying-decimals-using-mental-strategies-6dh3jr?step=2&activity=video  up until 11mins 23 sec
  • Complete the Candomaths sheet - please send this in so I can see how you are getting on.

 

Topic

Messages during WW2 were often sent in code so that the enemy could not understand them. Today you will be finding out some WW2 facts using this 'cryptogram' method- see the sheet attached. Can you write your own fact using this method?

Group 1:

 We will be continuing with the Michael Morpurgo story 'Friend or Foe' in our zoom session. 

 

Then you are going to predict what happens in the next chapter (chapter 5) – who is holding Davey in the water? What happens? What is said?

Then make a comic strip of your predictions for the chapter 5 and bring it to the Zoom on Monday. You can choose which template to use from the resources, depending on how many pictures you want to draw!

 

Group 2:

You are doing the reading comprehension about 'The Game', in the booklet on pages 11 - 13.

 

Maths

  • Complete two more 4 times table wheels (from Monday's resources)
  • Take another 4 times table test - are you improving?
  • Today we will work on using a written method to multiply decimals. You can use either grid method or long multiplication (which ever you feel most comfortable with) to solve the problems. Work through the power point that shows you one method to solve decimal problems and then from slide 8 complete at least 8 questions


T and P

First of all, apologies for not attaching the power point last week! (Luckily it was more for interest rather than essential to complete the work.)

This week you get to research at least 2 of the Hindu gods or goddesses.

 

Hindus believe that all the gods and goddesses actually make up all the different 'roles' within Brahman. There are so many different ways that Brahman is required to support people, that Hindus believe it is easier and simpler to show these different aspects as different characters.

Choose the ones you want to research from the sheet in the resources. Add your information and we will use this in next week's lesson. Happy researching!

Computing

This week, again, if you didn't have a go last week, try using 'I can animate' to make a movie of your flipbook.

If you already had a go at this, move on to making your own movie. See the worksheet which explains everything you need to do. Keep working on it to refine your script and story board before you start the filming. Take your time - the results are worth it!

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THESE APPS, create a story board and script for your own movie. We might get a chance for you to make it once we get back in to school!  

 

GOOD TO BE GREEN

Don't forget to have your Good to be Green time to finish the week!

Have fun and enjoy the weekend.

Remember - BE KIND to your family, they are finding it tough too!

WEEK 2

Monday 11th January

 

English 

Group 1 - Zoom session with Mrs Price continuing to read our class text. After the session write a letter from Tucky to his Mum to tell her about his new life so far. Think about all the new things he has encountered. Please email us if you are in group 1 and have not received a link (it was sent on Friday)

 

Group 2 - We are starting a new English topic based on a text called 'The Game'. This is based on the film'Jumanji' - have you watched it?  It is a film about a board game that comes to life when the characters play it. If you can, watch the clip on the link in the resources (or on p 3 of the booklet).

Now we would like you to write a short story about a game that goes wrong. This is your cold task for the unit of work and so we would like you to send it to us please

 

Maths 

From the evidence we have been sent you seem to be using the grid method for multiplication really effectively. This is a method that you can use for ever if it is something you are comfortable with. For those of you who want to use a slightly quicker method, you can start to practise long multiplication.

Please watch the end of the video we started last week - this will give you some instruction of how to set out and complete long multiplication.

https://buzzardpublishing.com/bz_orders?pin=qzqh

Scroll down to Year 5 home learning, click on the video for written methods of multiplication. Watch the video from 7min 50 sec to the end.

 

There is then a game to play (sheet attached). If you want to play the game and use grid method that is fine as well.

 

We still need to get really proficient with times tables ,the better you know them - both the multiplication and division facts- the easier you will find your maths work. This week we will focus on the three times table. For those who did not make the three times table fortune teller from last week I have attached it again. Have a play with it, test your self, test a sibling, test an adult.

I have also attached a booklet with lots of 3 times table tests, complete at least one each day (only give yourself 3 minutes to do each section). Can you get more correct by the end of the week, or even complete them in a faster time? Challenge yourself - you can check your own answers using the fortune teller.

 

We have also attached a times table grid to support children with their times table knowledge when completing multiplication calculations.

Science

This week's investigation is all about which material is the best insulator.

First make up some cups of hot water.

Wrap each cup with a different material eg fabric, bubble wrap, paper, plastic bag etc

If you have a thermometer take the temperature of each cup every 10 minutes and see which one stays hottest for longest. 

The one that stays the hottest for longest has the best thermal insulator.

Think about how to make this a fair test.

How can you present your results clearly  (use a table or a graph)

Now write up the investigation on the sheet attached (I'll try and remember to attach it this week!)

In your grammar booklets complete the work on using an apostrophe (page 56). You should be good at this as we have spent several weeks practising this. If you don't have your grammar book complete the sheet below. Then look at the pages taken from 'Friend or Foe' (see resources). Find all the different contractions on the pages and sort them into two lists - contraction / possessive. Finally, re-write all the contractions in full (eg don't - do not).

 

Maths 

We are still practising multiplication. Work through the power point from slide 11 to the end. Complete one worksheet (pick the correct level) This sheet is the weekly maths work  to be handed in please.

Remember you can use either grid method or long multiplication to solve the problems. 

 

Complete another times tables test - are you getting faster or more accurate?

 

Topic

This week you need to find out which countries were involved in World War 2. Below is a list of countries involved in the war - the axis (the countries who fought against Britain), the allies (the countries who fought with Britain), axis controlled (those countries invaded by the axis countries and were under their control) plus the neutral countries (those who were not involved in the war). On the map provided, colour the different groups of countries in 4 different colours.

English

Group 1: You will do a reading comprehension based on Roald Dahl. Then you will do a vocab activity based on the text. See the worksheets in the resources.

 

Group 2: In our Zoom session we will be reading 'The Game' and acting it out. Then you will write a paragraph about your favourite game - what it is, how it is played , why it is your favourite.

 

Maths 

After a few days practising TU x TU calculations, you should now be ready to extend your learning to HTU x TU eg 567 x 45.

These can still be completed both using the grid method or long multiplication (an example of both can be seen in the resources).

Using the same idea as the game on Monday but use a 3 digit and 2 digit number (instead of two 2 digit numbers). Your target number will need to be between 10,000 and 110, 000. I have attached the game again as a reminder.

 

Your final day working on the 3 times table, remember to test yourself. Have you improved?

 

Computing

This week, if you didn't have a go last week, try using 'I can animate' to make a movie of your flipbook.

If you already had a go at this, move on to making your own movie. See the worksheet which explains everything you need to do.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THESE APPS, create a story board and script for your own movie. We might get a chance for you to make it once we get back in to school!  

 

GOOD TO BE GREEN

Don't forget to have your Good to be Green time to finish the week!

Have fun and enjoy the weekend.

Remember - BE KIND to your family, they are finding it tough too!
