9.00: English – These lessons will need to be completed in order.
Lesson 1: Spelling-
Lesson 2: Spelling-
Lesson 3: Grammar- https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-explore-prepositions-74t66r
In each of our English lessons this term, we are going to be working towards planning our own story narrative by focusing on the build-up (beginning), climax (middle) and resolution (end). We will also be considering characters, settings and the main problem.
Lesson 5: Watch the video lesson for https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-develop-an-understanding-of-the-main-characters-in-a-film-6xhp6c. Take note of the actions and feelings/emotions activity at the end of the video. Use this to create your own characters for your story.
Lesson 6: Planning the build-up (https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-plan-a-narrative-build-up-6th30c?step=1&activity=video). Follow the activities in the lesson and adapt these to your own narrative.
Lesson 7: Planning the climax (https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-plan-a-narrative-climax-crv3ce). Follow the activities in the lesson and adapt these to your own narrative.
Lesson 8: Planning the resolution (https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-plan-a-narrative-resolution-cdhpac). Follow the activities in the lesson and adapt these to your own narrative.
Lesson 9: Edit and improving your work. Today, we would like you to edit and improve your story plan so far. Use a thesaurus (here’s an online version - https://kidthesaurus.com/) to improve your language. For example, rather than writing ‘hot’, look for a much better word such as ‘boiling’ or ‘scolding’! Make sure you proof-read your story with an adult to check for spelling mistakes too!
Lesson 10: It’s time to write your narrative in full and read to your family! Perhaps you could extend your learning and turn it into a play, getting your family involved as acters too!
10.15: Read for 20 – 30 minutes. Remember to record your thoughts in our reading journal.
10.45: Take a break. Grab a drink and a snack ready for your Maths lesson
11.00: Maths- These lessons will need to be completed in order.

Try this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVJ7Prt5OdA
What is overfishing and why is overfishing happening?
What impact does overfishing have on the Oceans?
Does any good come from overfishing? What about supply and demand for the world?
Write a balanced argument around the topic of overfishing.
Lesson 2: RE: Diwali
Research the special time of Diwali.
What is Diwlai? When does it occur? What would Diwali look like in a Hindu household? What special events happens during the time of Diwlai?
Create an informative Diwali leaflet answering all the questions above.
Remember to use headings and subheadings!
Lesson 3: RE: Diwali
Continuing to look at Diwali and the religion Hinduism.
Watch this video on the story of Rama and Sita:
Rewrite the story. If you want a template we have attached one here:Diwali.pdf
Lesson 4: PSHE: Responsibilities
We have been looking at roles and responsibilities of people we learn with. You are currently learning at home, so what are the responsibilities of the people in your household? Whose job is it to tidy up the dinner table? How about collecting dirty clothes? Who does the cleaning in your house? Do you share the jobs out for everyone?
Make a chart with the people who live in your household and then write their responsibilities onto the chart. Is the chart fair? If not, how can you make it fair?
Lesson 5: PSHE: Friendships
We have also been looking at the term friendships and whose responsibility it is to sort friendship disagreements out. What do you think? If you had a disagreement with a friend what would you do? Do you work with the other person to help solve problems and fix arguments? Look at our ‘Solve it together technique’. Could you use this? Can you create a poster promoting the ‘Solve it together technique’.
Lesson 6: French: The classroom
Listen carefully as you look through this powerpoint of objects in the classroom. Have you got all these items in your working space at home?
Draw an aerial view picture of your working area and label the items in French.
Lesson 7: Art:
All the Rambling Isles take part in a competition to see who has the best seawig. Today, you are going to design your own seawig! Remember this is all the objects that have washed up on the islands shore, so you we need to think very carefully about what could be floating in the sea. Click here for a template, if you do not have access to a printer, no problem! Get creative and draw it! We cannot wait to see what you come up with!
Lesson 8: DT- Now it's time to make your seawig using whatever resources you can find with ease. Maybe junk modelling, playdoh, paper or even paper mache. We can wait to see your seawig, send us a picture of your creation.
Lesson 9: Science- Booklet coming soon!
Lesson 10:Science- Booklet coming soon!
