Lesson 2: Spelling-

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-practise-and-apply-knowledge-of-greek-etymology-ch-ph-and-sc-spellings-including-test-cdk64c?activity=video&step=1

Lesson 3: Grammar- https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-explore-prepositions-74t66r

Lesson 4: Grammar- https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-explore-complex-sentences-60t66c

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!

Lesson 3: RE: Diwali

Continuing to look at Diwali and the religion Hinduism.

Watch this video on the story of Rama and Sita:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRpNNF4fB4g&list=RDCMUC4KN50fal7f45fx2DqG7ttg&index=2

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 1: Geography- Use the internet to find some interesting facts about the countries or the counties in the UK. 

Lesson 2: Science – This term we are learning about light and shadows.  Write a list of all the objects you can find that are a light source.

Lesson 3: Art - Find an interesting object (this could be a building or a type of plant you haven’t seen before) and draw it in detail.  Take note of any interesting patterns or shapes. 

Lesson 4: Science- Booklet coming soon!

Lesson 5: MFL – Articles, articles, articles! What are articles?! French articles are the ‘a/an’ or ’the’ that start at the beginning of a word in French (e.g. the dog = le chien). Most words are split into masculine or feminine words in the French language. They have special rules that apply to words when you say ‘the ______’ or ‘a/an _______’. If it is a masculine word, you use ‘le/un’ and if it is feminine, you use ‘la/une’. Read through the PowerPoint of animals. Practise remembering which are masculine and which are feminine. Draw these animals and see if you can write the correct article below. Have fun!

Lesson 6: PSHE – Today, we would like you to pair up with an adult to discuss safety at home. Make a list of items in your house that should be in a ‘safe for me’ section and an ‘ask an adult first’ section. How can we make sure we are staying safe at home? What precautions do we need to take? E.g. Is it very safe to keep knives on the floor? Represent these however you would like to!

Lesson 7: PSHE – We're going to explore feelings today. On a large piece of paper, create as many representations of the emotions ‘scared’ and ‘anxious’. What do these words mean? What can we do to help people who are feeling this way? Write all your ideas in a large representation.

Lesson 8: Art – Today, we are learning to use sketchbooks! A sketchbook is a book or collection of pages where you can practise your drawing skills. We would like you to find a scene to draw observationally (such as the park, your garden, a view outside of a window, etc.) and sketch what you see throughout the day. Revisit this scene perhaps in the morning, afternoon/lunchtime and in the evening. How does it change? Do the colours alter? Do you need more shading for darker patches and shadows? Does the sunlight come from a different angle?

Lesson 9: Art – Using your creative skills, create a drawing of anything you would like! You could paint, collage, use materials or just pencil sketch. Time to evaluate. What do you like about your drawing? What might you change next time? Why is this?

Lesson 10: Computing – Time to test your researching skills! We would like you to research some information about Tom Fletcher, the author of our book – The Creakers. Where is he from? How old is he? Are there any interesting facts about him? Write down some key information you find. What websites did you need? What search engines did you use? You can use www.kidrex.org or https://www.kiddle.co/ to get you started.

9.00: Read for 20 – 30 minutes.  Remember to record your thoughts in your
reading journal.

9.30: Time to log on and complete some work on Spelling Shed.

9.45: English

Monday:

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

We introduced this spelling rule to you a little last week, but now we are looking at when that ‘l’ sound becomes a suffix and adds to a root word.

Using your spellings on spelling shed, write them out and highlight the spelling rule in a different colour, just like we do in class!       E.g.  magical

Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Let’s remind ourselves of what a contraction in our writing is.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xE-vw2ctqo

Using this contraction word mat, choose three contractions and put them into a sentence.

Main task

This week we are going to write the story of ‘The Creakers’ from Lucy’s point of view with a few of our own ideas.  We will be acting as if we are her (first person) E.g. I slowly crept around my house looking for my mum.

Today, we are going to plan the beginning and build-up for our story. Click here for a planning sheet.  We are going to use the same setting and characters as the book, this way we can concentrate on our descriptive writing. In the beginning section, we want you to introduce the main characters. Did you know the two characters Buzz and Buddy are actually Tom Fletcher’s children? You could add in one of your own characters, maybe a family member, friend or even a pet! Now we want you to describe the setting. We would like you to include adjectives (describing words), similes (as tall as a tree) and your senses (sight, smell, hear, touch and taste). Don’t forget you wrote a description of Whiffington Town last week. It might be helpful if you look back at this.

 

Now for the build-up. The problem in the story is trying to find the grown-ups. Where have they gone? We want to include what the characters do before they find the grown-ups. Lucy and her friends visited parts of the town. Are you going to do this?

 

·        How did Lucy and her friends cope? What did they get up to? Were they naughty or well behaved?  

We know there is a creature under the bed. You have already created your own monster last week. Is your creature going to be in the build-up?

·        Why is the creature there? Is the creature naughty or nice?

 

Tuesday:    

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

Spend some time on spelling shed.

Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Continue to use this contraction word mat.  Choose a different three words and put them into sentences.

Main task

Continuing with our story writing from yesterday, today we are going to plan ‘problem / dilemma section on your planning sheet. Once again, we are going to use the same problem and dilemma the characters find themselves in as the book, so the focus can be on your descriptive writing. What is the problem the children need to try and resolve? Will anyone take the lead in trying to resolve the problem?  What is going to be tricky about solving the problem?  What difficult choices might the children have to make? This is the dilemma.

When planning this part of the story make sure you remember to write from Lucy’s point of view, (first person) E.g. Suddenly, I had a brilliant idea I knew I had to share with the others, and of course use adjectives, similes and your senses.

 

Wednesday:  

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

Continue looking at the spelling rule for this week and write them out.

Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Continue to use this contraction word mat.  Choose a different three words and put them into sentences, maybe you could try and use your spelling words into your sentences as well.

Main task

Welcome to Wednesday.  Today we are going to put all the planning you have done on your story map into a descriptive piece of writing, using paragraphs.  Use all your notes on your planning sheet. You are going to write in first person using, adjectives, similes and senses, to re-tell the story so far through the eyes of Lucy, with a few of your own additions.

 

Thursday: World Book Day! ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers has been chosen for our World Book Day! We have shared this below. Please read the book before completing any of the activities for today.

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

Spend some time on spelling shed.

Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Today you task it to make some contraction squares, just like the picture below. You will be in preparation for tomorrow’s task.

Main task

In class we have a problem that we need your help with. We are trying to encourage future space people to move to planet Earth. The book has given us notes about Earth, but it only tells us all the great reasons to live on planet Earth. The future space people have heard some things about living on planning Earth that are very different to what the notes in the book tell us! Any ideas?

We are going to write a balanced argument today. We did this last term. Using the notes in the book, we want you to first plan a balanced argument by noting reasons for moving to earth and reasons for not moving to earth (For and Against).  Click here for a planning sheet.

Then, using your plan, write a persuasive argument to give to the future space people so they can make an informed decision about the pros and cons of moving to planet Earth.

 

Friday:

Spelling: Looking at the ‘l’ sound spelt ‘al’ at the end of words.

It’s spelling test time. Get an adult to test you on your spellings for this week. Good luck!

 Grammar: Looking at contractions.

Today using you contraction squares you made yesterday. Test yourself and write the words that match the contraction on the back. See if you can do this without the aid of the contraction word at helping you!

Main task

Back to the story ‘The Creakers’, and today we are going to do some predicting.  What is predicting?  (when you form an idea about what is going to happen)

You have written the first parts of the story through Lucy’s eyes and now you will need to predict what ‘The resolution’ and ‘The ending’ will be to the story. Once again, we must still be predicting as if we were Lucy. (first person) How might the problem / dilemma be sorted out? Who might take the lead on solving the problems?  Will it all go to plan? Will there be any problems / challenges along the way?  How will the story end? Will the parents return home and everything return to normal? Or will things change forever?

Helpful phrases for predicting: I predict that...  I think... will happen   I bet that....

 

10.45: Take a break.  Grab a drink and a snack ready for your Maths lesson.

11.00:    Maths – This week we are completing some more work on multiplication and division.  

Monday: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/multiplying-3-digit-numbers-by-1-digit-numbers-60t6ae

11.45: Take time to complete some work on Doodle Maths/ Doodle Tables.

12.15: Lunch time.

13.15: In the afternoon, we focus on our Foundation subjects, here are some suggested activities in line with what we will be doing in school each day.

Monday: Music - This week we will focus on listening to music! Listen to the songs below from our book, ‘The Creakers’. What feelings do you feel when you hear these songs? What instruments can you hear? Do you like/dislike it? Why? A BIG TIP – close your eyes when you listen to the music and don't watch the video.

Song 1 - ‘Don’t Turn Out the Lights’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEfmEKJrPVc)

Song 2 – ‘Different' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZsRLPd4Yp4)

Tuesday: Music - Today, we would like you to follow up from yesterday’s music lesson. Find your favourite song. What do you like about it? What instruments are there? How does it make you feel? Can you link any of the instruments to the songs you heard yesterday? Do they sound the same or are they played in a different way with a different effect?

Wednesday: Music - Today, we are looking at composers. Here is a video to get you started! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk1LFEbQCKA.

Now, it’s your turn! Using your amazing knowledge of crotchets and quavers from last term, create a master piece! You could start by thinking of 2 or more instruments (these could be anything from around the house!) and creating two different parts for them to play at the same time. Maybe one could be doing crotchets and the other creates a rhythm of your choice. You’ll need another pair of hands for this – try asking somebody in your house if they can play one of the parts.

Could you get your whole family playing while you conduct? Make sure you write down what they have to do so they don’t forget! Have fun! 😊

Thursday: World Book Day – Choose one of the following activities.

(1) PSHE - In a quote shown at the back of the book, Oliver’s Dad says that ‘There are only three words you need to live by, son: respect, consideration and tolerance.’ What do these words mean? 

(2) Art - Create some illustrations of planet Earth. 

Friday: French (MFL) - Today, we are going to be learning about family pets! Follow the PowerPoint slides and practise the pronunciation of each animal. Draw your favourite animals and name them below! Challenge: Write down in a sentence, which animals you have as pets or would like to have as a pet. Can you find out how to write the entire sentence in French?

14.30:    Nearly the end of the day.  Take time to read the next part of ‘The Creakers’ by Tom Fletcher. 

Monday: Chapters 7 and 8

13.15: In the afternoon, we focus on our Foundation subjects, here are some suggested activities in line with what we will be doing in school each day.

Monday: Geography - Welcome to geography! We are going to start our week by researching the counties of England! Click here for a PowerPoint to get you started. We are already aware that we live in the glorious East Sussex however, can you name the other 4 counties that surround East Sussex? I’ll give you some clues! They start with W___ S____, K____, S_____ and L_______. Draw a map of Southern England (not the whole UK!) and add these counties in as accurately as you can, ready for tomorrow’s lesson.

‘Maps’ by Aleksandra and Daniel Mizielinski

Tuesday: Geography - Today, we are continuing with our maps from yesterday. We would now like you to do a little bit of research about some of those counties and add some topographical features for a few of them. Are there any interesting landmarks like famous buildings, rivers, county parks, etc.? These can be as artistic as your like! You could use the book ‘Maps’ by Aleksandra and Daniel Mizielinski as inspiration. Here is the UK representation. We are looking forward to seeing them soon! 😊

Wednesday: Geography - Time to have a look at our own locality today! We would like you to create a map of Hastings, identifying some of the topographical features such as the beach, promenade, Alexandra Park, etc. You can create this in any style you wish using text, pictures...whatever! Again, we can’t wait to see them!

Thursday: MFL (French) - Bonjour! New term, new French topic! This term’s topic will be linked to our families! Follow the slides on the PowerPoint to learn some of the terms needed to explain who we have in our family. Now we would like you to create a family tree! You could draw this or collect some lovely photos. Write who is in your family using the phrases from today such as; C’est mon père (This is my dad). How far back into your family history can you go? Have fun!

Friday: PSHE - This term, our PSHE topic is called ‘Healthy Me’. We are going to be looking at how to keep our bodies healthy as well as our minds! We will be starting this theme by beginning to understand what the heart is and how it works. Watch this video first to get a better understanding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tg_ObDJEaGo&safe=active .

As you can see, our heart and lungs work together. As we breathe more using our lungs, our heart beats faster to help transport oxygen around our body. Let’s test this by doing some exercise! Before you start, record how many times your heart beats in 15 seconds (ask an adult to help you with this). Choose an exercise movement to do for 1 minute. What happens to your heart rate and your breathing? On a piece of paper, draw some different exercise you could do to make your heart and lungs stronger. Write how they might help and what benefits you might feel from these.

Use your knowledge of sense to help you with this task, I have put some ideas on to help you get started: 

What does he look like? Rough and tough 

What does he sound like?  Grunts whilst he hunts 

What does he smell like? Marmalade toast like an old roast 

What would he feel like? Eyes as black as the night sky 

And what do you think his food tastes like?  Grimy and slimy  

Now use your rhyming words to write a rhyming couplet. Click here for an example.

13.15: In the afternoon, we focus on our Foundation subjects, here are some suggested activities in line with what we will be doing in school each day.

Monday: Music - We are going to start our music week by creating our own instruments! You could use recycled materials or use what you already have to create some interesting and personal instruments. Here is a link with some ideas (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrCEqdMfbno&safe=active) but remember, there are plenty more on YouTube! You could try a guitar or maybe even a harmonica. We’re looking forward to seeing what you can come up with!

Tuesday: Music - Today, we are going to be exploring crotchets and quavers. These are beats that tell us how long to play for when reading music. Watch these two videos. The first explains what pulse and rhythm means and the second tells us about crotchets and quavers. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zcbkcj6/articles/z2mqw6f / https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrEROwDoIcg&safe=active.

Using what you’ve found out, write down some simple notation using these. Be careful, it’s important to remember that quavers (short notes) should always be in pairs in this exercise (so joined up short notes!). Can you tap these rhythms out on your knees? You could sing them using ‘la’ or make up your own silly words for each beat! You could even use your new instrument from yesterday!

Wednesday: Music - Warm up using this video. See if you can follow along (don’t worry about the names when you watch the video, sometimes people call crotchets quarter notes and quavers they call eighth notes!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vZ5mlfZlgk&safe=active. Today, using your instruments and your new note reading/writing skills, we would like you to write us a song! This could be just instrumental or you could include some words and singing too! You could perform this to your family or friends online! Remember to use correct notation. Good Luck!

Thursday: MFL (French) - Bonjour little ones! This week, we would like you to research some food names in French. You can use this video to get you started or go and research your own (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lodXbEIPM7A&safe=active).

Write a list of these foods or draw them (be as creative as you wish!) then write the following about your preference:

J’aime (I like)

J’adore (I love)

Je n’aime pas (I don’t like)

Je déteste (I hate)

E.g., J’adore les spaghettis! (I love spaghetti!)

We have also attached a sheet for you to complete. Click here for the sheet.  

Friday: PSHE - Continuing with our theme of dreams and goals, we would like you to consider how brilliant you are already! We would like you to highlight something (or things!) that you are proud of from this week. What success have you had? How has this made you feel? Why is this? What might you do to try and feel this kind of achievement again next week? You could express this with words or drawings. But always remember; YOU ARE FANTASTIC! We are already so proud of all of you. 😀

PE: Virtual Sussex Games is back! Complete these weekly challenges to gain points for Silverdale and get us on the leaderboard! Have a go, practice and improve and submit your scores on the website!  https://www.activesussex.org/virtual/  Have fun! 😊
