Week starting Monday 4th May: learning from home

I hope you have enjoyed the first 2 weeks of Ross Mackenzie's EVERNIGHT. There will be a new chapter for you to listen to every day again this week! Go to edublog  to share your follow up comments after hearing each chapter. 

Our topic work this week is some PSHCE and some MUSIC. (You can also look at Ms Liddell's art tutorials if you'd like to do some more art work). If you've missed any of the HISTORY work on the Romans (week 1), RE work (week 2)  SCIENCE work about micro-organisms (week 3), ART work on Op art (week 4) everything is still on the tabs- so just go back and see what you could do.

MATHS

ALL THE SHEETS YOU NEED ARE ATTACHED BELOW THE TABLE. BUT YOU WILL NEED TO USE THE LINKS IN THE TABLE TO WATCH THE TUTORIALS ON MONDAY, TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY AND  TO ACCESS THE ANSWER SHEETS.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday's Maths use the White Rose lessons. Make sure you navigate to find the correct lesson- look carefully at which week and lesson number I have written. Watch the tutorial, complete the work, mark your work. (Click on the photo opposite for simple instructions)

On Thursday you have "Problem of the day" BLUE questions or Barvember questions. (Or both if you've feeling up for it!)

On Friday, its the new 'Family Maths Challenge' questions created by the BBC and White Rose Maths. White Rose suggest that questions 1-5 are best suited to Year 5 and questions 1-6 best suited to Year 6. However, I say that Willow class Year 6 and many Year 5s could certainly work up to question 9. Give yourself a challenge- and maybe get your parents involved for question 10 onwards!!

On our edublog https://stonewithwoodford.edublogs.org/ there is a new padlet where everybody needs to complete a written response after listening each day. Above the padlet it explains what you need to write.

In this chapter Lara and Joe discuss the latest events in the sewers. Shadow Jack is determined to find a box that has been lost in the sewers and he is willing to kill anybody who gets in his way.

Describe what you think this box looks like and describe what is inside that is so important or so valuable that he is willing to risk all to get it.

MUSIC: SINGING

Use BBC Bitesize https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkx3bdm

Learn: What are melody and pitch?

Melody is the tune. It's the part of the music that you sing along with.

Pitch is how high or low a note sounds.

A melody is made up of high and low pitched notes played one after the other. Catchy melodies often repeat the same series of notes over and over.

Singing with feeling: Singing is all about feeling. You can change the mood of a song by the way it is sung.

Some songs make you feel happy or excited, while others make you feel sad or scared.

These feelings come from how the song is composed, the instruments used and how performers play them.

Think about how your favourite songs make you feel.

Listen again to your favourite song and see if you can spot what is causing those feelings.

You might be able to use those tricks in your song.

 

Activity 1: What is your favourite song at the moment? Find that song and listen to it.

Can you write down or describe how it is making you feel?

Can you spot what is causing that feeling? Is it the words?

How does the singer perform?

Write down three things about the music that you think are creating that feeling.

Activity 2: Sing along to Somewhere Only We Know

Watch and singalong with this choir singing Somewhere Only We Know by Keane.

Activity 3: Try out a creative Ten Pieces activity at home. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/ten-pieces/intro-films-and-orchestral-films/zv2gqp3

  • Watch films about classical music
  • Make art and crafts
  • Download sheet music and sing along to famous pieces.
