MATHS: Daily Lessons

YEAR 5:  On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week, you are using lessons from Hamilton Trust. Each day's work has instructions at the top of the first page for you to follow. These resources use Powerpoints and/or sheets they call  "Learning Reminders" as the teaching input of the maths lesson and then there are worksheets to print out and complete. YOU DO NOT NEED TO PRINT OUT THE WHOLE DOCUMENT. There are often 2 levels of tesk to choose between - mild and hot- and extra resources you can use if you find the concept tricky. At the end of the resource pages some days they use a "Check your understanding" sheet to finish off the lesson. (This week there are Powerpoints for Monday and for Wednesday and "Learning Reminders" for Tuesday and Thursday.) SO THAT WE CAN SEE HOW YOU ARE GETTING ON, PLEASE MARK YOUR WORK USING THE ANSWER SHEET AND THEN PHOTOGRAPH IT AND SEND IT TO US USING SEESAW.

YEAR 6: You are continuing your topic of algebra. Monday if you are working at home you will use the BBC Home Learning resources, which have a written teaching input and an associated worksheet to complete plus a WR worksheet. On Tuesday there are 2 White Rose tutorial videos and follow up worksheets to teach you about forming and solving equations. Wednesday's worksheets recap algebra so far. Thursday are Friday's lessons are the WR resources you are familiar with for the end of the week and are outlined in the table below. Year 6 you have your TIMES TABLE ROCK STARS account to use again this week. 

The Fluent in 5 sheets and the times table sheets are always available, if you complete the other work quickly. (Find these on the You Might Like... tab) SUMDOG is an extra to do too, for some maths and gaming time!

YEAR 6 ALGEBRA: formulae

Today we introduce formulae. Essentially, a formula is very much like an expression, but it represents a real situation.

eg 2a+2b is an expression whereas perimeter of a kite=2a+2b is a formula.

Click on the picture below to follow the link to BBC Home Learning Maths10 June: Substitute into simple expressions and formulae

Learn how to solve formulae and revise how to substitute numbers.

This lesson includes:

  • a learning summary
  • interactive activities (lots of interactive games)
  • one worksheet with answers

After you have completed the BBC lesson and done the worksheet there is a White Rose worksheet called "Formulae" to do.

WRITING

MONDAY & TUESDAY

Watch the animation, The Robot and the Butterfly

PLEASE EITHER WRITE THESE 2 PIECES ONTO WRITTEN IN STONE EDUBLOG OR SEND THEM IN BY SEESAW.

Set in a futuristic prison - spherical cells hang on chains.  The bars are broken - but its futile to try and escape anyway - it's a long way down.  A beautiful orange butterfly lands on the cell bars and the robot prisoner seems to be enchanted by it.  Perhaps we feel sorry for this gentle robot who is in prison now.  But then there is a little twist at the end that stops us feeling sorry for him.

MONDAY: Write the story of this animation either in third person, from the neutral perspective of a narrator or in first person from the perspective of the butterfly. Try to show the juxtaposition (the way two things are seen together with contrasting effect) between the robot and the butterfly. 

TUESDAY: Write the journal/diary entry of the robot.  Perhaps he can describe the day he saw the butterfly and explain what he did.

The video can also be found here, scroll down to find it CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK TO THE LITERACY SHED

WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY AND FRIDAY

Use the booklet attached below called CITY OF SILENCE

WEDNESDAY (download the booklet for more detail)

Work your way through the warm up activities 1-6. This will give you lots of ideas ready for today's writing task : the list poem (activity 7) 

MAIN TASK: Activity 7: Creating a simple list poem 

PLEASE EITHER WRITE THIS ONTO https://stonewithwoodford.edublogs.org/  OR SEND IT IN BY SEESAW.
Let’s have a go at writing a simple poem now from your favourite 10 or soideas. They could be around a theme (e. space, happiness, darkness) or just the combinations that really caught your eye. 
Space
The planet of doom
The star of freedom
The black hole of light
The moon of isolation
The galaxy of hope
Theuniverse of infinity
The sun of nightmares
The solar system of confusion
Have a go writing your own simple list poem - see page 8 for more details

THURSDAY(download the booklet for more detail)

Activity 8: Let’s look at a model poem
Below is a poem written by Pie Corbett using The City of Silence game called The Cave of Curiosity. It is a great example of a poem using a repetitive pattern; this time he starts each verse with the phrase: In the cave of curiosity. We are going lo ok closely at this poem and
write some responses.
Start by reading the poem then try to respond to what we have read.

The Cave of Curiosity
In the cave of curiosity, I created
an angry ant ambling along,
a terrified tarantula tickling a tornado
and a curious computer calling cautiously to the King.
In the cave of curiosity, I created
the sound of silence closing its lips,
a hummingbird’s wings flickering,
as the sea silently scrapes the pebbles and ten tired lorries trundle by.
In the cave of curiosity, I created
the touch of smooth stones from the summer beach,
the stickiness of honey on a fingertip
and the heat from a teaspoon as it stirs my morning tea.
In the cave of curiosity, I created
the coldness of frost as it freck les the windowpane,
the sharpness of a saw as it crunches through wood
and the sadness of a tear as it trickles down a cheek.
In the cave of curiosity, I captured
the moon’s cold gleam imprisoned in a box,
the joy of a merry go round as it spins like a feral ferris wheel
and the force of a rainbow as it dazzles the sky wi th a smile that stuns.
© Pie Corbett

THURSDAY MAIN TASK: Use page 10 of the booklet to write your responses to the poem.

PLEASE SEND YOUR RESPONSES TO THE POEM IN USING SEESAW.

FRIDAY (download the booklet for more detail)

Work through warm up activities 9 and 10. Then choose a either activity 11 (poem) or 12 (descriptive narrative) as your main written task.

PLEASE EITHER WRITE THIS ONTO https://stonewithwoodford.edublogs.org/  OR SEND IT IN BY SEESAW.

Activity 11 (poem) Activity 12 (descriptive writing)

Activity 11: A poem with a repeating pattern
For this poem, you will need a repeating phrase chosen from one of the ideas above. Here are some examples so you get the idea:


I Got Lost
I got lost in the castle of curses and never came out,
I got lost in the maze of confusion as…
I got lost in the land of dreams where…
I got lost in the field of fear because…
In the Castle of Dreams
In the castle of dreams there are…
In the castle of dreams you will…
In the castle of dreams no one…
In the castle of dreams I
The Dungeon of Doom
The dungeon of doom is home to…
The dungeon of doom wants you to…
The dungeon of doom is a place where…
The dungeon of doom can……


To extend this poem, each verse could be 4 lines

Activity 12: Writing a descriptive paragraph


One activity you could try now is to write a narrative or descriptive paragraph
based around one of your favourite combinations. Try to describe the setting
and how the character reacts to what they see. Remember to keep re reading your writing to see if i t works and if it needs a tweak here or there with the
spelling or punctuation.

THIS WEEK'S TOPIC: DT, ART and PSHCE

Topic work this week includes 2 DT /STEM projects. These projects are both designed by a trust called the smallpeice trust and they are designed to keep you creating from the comfort of your own home. They seek to turn those materials you would normally send out in your recycling, into something that you can design, build and test.

I have borrowed one of Ms Liddell's art activities, so you can read about Keith Haring, watch a video on how to recreate his style and then have a go yourself.

There are also a couple of new PSHE activities. A new Facts4Life activity mat and this week's days on the June well-being calendar.

Art: Keith Haring

Keith Haring Grafitti Style Art

Keith Haring was born on May 4, 1958 in Reading, Pennsylvania, and was raised in nearby Kutztown, Pennsylvania. He developed a love for drawing at a very early age, learning basic cartooning skills from his father and from the popular culture around him, such as Dr. Seuss and Walt Disney. He is known for his vibrant stylised figures and animals in a grafitti style. He made a great deal of his art in the subways of New York.

Throughout his career, Haring devoted much of his time to public works, which often carried social messages. He produced more than 50 public artworks between 1982 and 1989, in dozens of cities around the world, many of which were created for charities, hospitals, children’s day care centers and orphanages. 

Keith Haring died at the young age of 31 on February 16, 1990. His work however, is still incredibly popular and fun to look at.

In the next video I will attempt to show you how to make your own. As always do send in any you do and I will add them to the art page and I am sure your teacher will add it to their page too. Have fun.

How To Draw Like Keith Haring

Watch the video and then have a go at making your own grafitti art in the style of Keith Haring. Don't forget to send them in to the usual address and to your teacher. 

Have fun.
