13.15:  Foundation subject

Here is a variety of foundation subject activities for you to choose from – pick one for each afternoon you are working from home:

Science:

Throughout the term we are looking at materials and their properties. We would like you to investigate irreversible changes. Here is a link to the BBC Bitesize to give you some information to get you started –

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zcvv4wx/articles/z9brcwx

We would like you to create a poster to show others what you have found out, try to include some examples of irreversible changes.

Art

Lesson 1:

Taking inspiration from images by Charles Keeping we would like you to have a go at drawing a scene from the Highwayman. Draw in pencil and try and create the shading effect using the methods taught earlier in the year (Hatching, cross hatching, random hatching and stippling).

Lesson 2:

When you look closely at the Charles Keeping art, it looks like he has used a fine line pen to create his illustrations. For this second session we would like you to have a go at creating another piece of art, this time we would like you to use a different medium (eg: Biro, fine line pen, charcoal or chalk) to draw another scene from the story. See if you can use shading to build an effect in the image.

Drama:

Another text we are looking at this term is ‘The Lady of Shalott’ by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. We have attached a copy of the text here:TheLadyofShalottpoem.docx Here are two drama lessons linked to this text created by Oak National.

Lesson 1

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/the-lady-of-shalott-part-1-cdgkge

Lesson 2

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/the-lady-of-shalott-part-2-c8wk8c

DT

Using an old shoe box, can you create a scene from The Highwayman. Feel free to use a variety of materials and be as creative as you can. This activity is likely to take you a couple of afternoons, so take your time and make your model as amazing as possible.

 

PE

Just because you are in isolation doesn’t mean you can’t keep active. There are plenty of online activates that we have shared throughout lockdown that you can continue to do, maybe you can get people at home involved too.  Try to do at least one session per week.

Year 5 Home learning WB 1st March 2021

Since our last blog we have heard the great news that you will all be back with us as of the 8th March. We are very much looking forward to having our year group back together again.

This week is an exciting week with World Book Day on Thursday (4th March) – It would be great if you guys at home could still get involved. We will be having a whole school assembly at 9:30 on Thursday morning and we would love to see as many of you as possible dressed up as your favorite book character. Most of our work that day will be linked to ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers.

We will still be doing our normal year 5 assembly on Wednesday at 2:50 as well as the celebration assembly on Friday at 2:30.   

We are sure you know these e-mail address by now, but just in case here are the address to contact your teachers:

nelson@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

nightingale@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

churchill@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

Please remember that Mr Jackson, Mr Mann and Mrs Duckett are also teaching class bubbles in school, so we may not be able to respond immediately - but will get back to you! 

Don’t forget the Year group assembly at 2:50pm on Wednesday, you can find the link here, but you'll need the password your parent has been sent via email: https://www.silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk/school-life/school-assemblies

Also, don't forget the special World Book Day assembly at 9:30am on Thursday - you can find the link at the school assemblies’ page above. 

Here is an introduction to this week's home learning

Daily learning guide
Learning times are only a guide, you might choose to approach each task at a different time

9.00: English – Throughout this term we will being using a narrative poem called ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes. We have attached a copy of the text here: TheHighwaymanfullpoem.doc

Ask with last week, the lessons once again are linked to Oak National Academy. However, we have selected particular lessons for you to follow. This may seem like you miss a lesson or two out – this is ok as those lessons were focusing on grammar rather than The Highwayman. We will come back to the grammar at a later date J.

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: PE

Our PE this week is the same as last week – don’t forget to let your teachers know how many mile you have covered. Last week, Mr Jackson completed a couple of 8 mile runs, Mr Mann completed a 4 mile walk each day and Mrs Duckett covered 30 miles on her bike – this brings the teachers total to 66 miles (Just past Littlehampton) J.

According to Google, it’s 12,429KM (7,723 miles) around the UK – this distance is measured around the coastline of the UK.

We don’t think that we will get round the whole of the UK. However, we would like to see how far as a year group we could travel over the next two weeks. So, all you need to do is get yourself out walking, running or biking and record how far you travel.

Keep a note of all the km/miles you cover and let you teachers know at the end of each week how far you have travelled. All the teachers (and maybe TAs) in the year group are going to take part in this too, we will update you with how many miles we have managed to clock up on next week’s blog J.

Tuesday: Science

Last week you looked at separating materials using a variety of processes (Filters, sieving, magnets and evaporation).

This week you are going look at dissolving materials and creating solutions.

What happens to salt if you add it to water?

Salt dissolves in water. This means it breaks up into tiny particles and you can no longer see it in the water. When mixed with water, salt will create a solution.

Can you think of any other materials that create a solution when added to water?

REALLY IMPORTANT…

You must check with the adult at home before carrying out this activity…

You are going to investigate what happens when you mix different materials with water:

Sand and water

Salt and water

Sugar and water

Baking Powder and water

Coffee and water

 

Please feel free to change the materials you are mixing so that it works in your home. We have attached a table to help you with your investigation. Make sure that before you begin you complete the prediction column of your table.

DissolvingMaterialsresultstable.docx

We would love to see some pictures of you carrying out the investigation J.

 

Wednesday: RE

 

Following on from the learning we did last week on Judaism, this week we are going to look at another important aspect of their religion.

 

For Jewish people, as with people from most other religions, prayer is a central part of worship. Observant Jews pray three times a day: morning, afternoon and evening. During prayer, most Jewish men wear a kippah. This is a small cap worn to cover the head as a sign of respect.

Some Jews may also wear a special prayer shawl called a tallit.

Today we would like you to find examples of different Jewish prayers used for a variety of situations:

A morning prayer.

A prayer for the lighting of the Shabbat candles.

A prayer for washing your hands before a meal.

A prayer before putting on the tallit.

A prayer for protection.

A prayer for help. 

We have attached a sheet for you to record what you find if you wish to use it.

REweek2.docx

Thursday: World Book Day - Look further down the blog for today’s work!  

Friday: Topic

Last week you found out about Crime and Punishment during the Roman period. Today you are fast forwarding about 400 years to the Anglo-Saxon period. 

As with last week we would like you to read through the Powerpoint attached here and then have a go at the attached activity. It might help if you can have an adult read through the Powerpoint with you – it shouldn’t take too long.

For the activity you need to work out which group would have been paid the most Wergild based on the injuries received.

World Book Day 2021 – Thursday 4th March 2021

Most of our learning today will be linked to the following book. We have put a scanned copy on the blog to help you.

WBDScannedcopy.pdf

We are having a whole school assembly at 9.30 and Mrs Duckett will be sharing the text live. It would be great to see you there, feel free to get dressed up as your favourite book character.

If you are unable to join us here is a link to the story being read by someone else – https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=cPPQdDwTUvE

English – Using the book as inspiration we would like you to do one of the following activities for English today. You can either, choose one of the people shown in the illustrations and write a story about them. Or you can, write a story about a group of people who began living on a different planet. How might their lives be similar / different to people back on Earth?

Maths – We are going to keep with the normal maths lessons, that way we won’t confuse ourselves J

Afternoon activity – We are going to hand this over to you. We have given you a selection of activities and we would like you to choose one to work on during the afternoon:

Science based:  The dodo explains that it isn’t supposed to be in the book. Why is this? Can you find out about other animals that have become extinct? What can we do to protect animals on our planet? 

DT based:  Can you create a model of the Earth?

Art based: Look at the page that shows night and day. Can you create two pictures of the same place at different times of the day?

Tuesday: Science

In science this term we are continuing with work linked to materials and their properties that we started back in term 1.

This week we are focusing on separating materials, have a look at the following video to find out more:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zgk4d2p

There are 4 main ways of separating materials that we are going to find out about today…

REALLY IMPORTANT…

You must check with the adult at home before carrying out this activity…

For your task, we would like you to mix together a variety of things such as: water, sand, stones, salt, rice or paper clips. Then using the knowledge that you have gained today, have a go at separating them after they have been mixed.

If you do not have filter paper you can use kitchen towel instead.

Don’t forget to show us lots of pictures of your work!

Wednesday: Geography

The Highwayman was first published in 1906, the world looked very different back then. There wasn’t the buildings that are around today and there were very few roads. Cars had only just been invented 10 years earlier so very few people had them or used them.

For your work today we would like you to look at how an area has changed over time. The link below takes you to a website that gives you maps over a period of time – it works using postcodes. We would like you to look at these maps and see how an area has changed. To start with use the school postcode: TN37 7EA – can you find out when then school was built?

We have attached a sheet that you can use to set out your work: OldmapnewmapactivitysheetGeographyweek1.pdf

https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/579913/111216/10/100546

You can view the maps for free but if you zoom in too much it won’t allow you to view. If this happens just zoom out again and you will be able to view the map once again.

Thursday: RE

This term in RE we are going to be finding out about Judaism – this is a religion that you may have learnt a little bit about already. In the following link, 11 year old Charlie tells us all about Judaism and why it is important to him.

This next clip explains about Shabbat and why it is important to Jewish people.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/znwhfg8/articles/zh77vk7

We have attached a word document that explains Shabbat in a little more detail. After reading this we would like you to have a go at answering the questions that are on the sheet.

Friday: Topic

Throughout this term we are going to find out about Crime and Punishment through the ages. Today we are going back about 2000 years to the Romans. You may remember some of this from when you looked at the Romans in year 3.

We would like you to read through the Powerpoint attached and then have a go at the attached activity. It might help if you can have an adult read through the Powerpoint with you – it shouldn’t take too long.

For the activity you need to match up the pictures with the definitions. If you can print this out you could just cut and stick them together. If you can’t print it out, just write the word that goes with the picture followed by the definition.

Monday: Science

This week, in our Science, we are going to be learning about the solar system and finding out how long it takes for each of the planets to orbit the sun.

Have a look at the following website, it gives you lots of information about the different planets within our solar system:

https://www.spacekids.co.uk/solarsystem/

The following link tells us how long it takes for each of the planets to orbit the sun:

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/go/resource/tg2-a-01-movement-of-the-planets-in-our-solar-system-animation  

Mercury = 88 days

Venus = 225 days

Earth = 365 days

Mars = 687 days

Jupiter = 12 Earths years or 4380 days

Saturn = 29.5 Earth years or 10767 days

Uranus = 84 Earth years or 33660 days

Neptune = 165 Earth years or 60225 days

Using this information we would like you to calculate how old you and members of you family would be on different planets. You will need access to a calculator for this!

First take you age and multiply it by 365:

9 x 365 = 3285 (this is how many days you have been alive)

Then take the 3285 and divide it by how long it takes the planet to orbit the sun:

3285 ÷ 88 (Mercury) = 37.3295454545

Rounded to the nearest year you would be 37 years old on Mercury J

Tuesday: Art/ Music

Below are two links to pieces of music composed by Gustav Holst between 1914 and 1916. These two musical pieces come from a suite called ‘The Planets’. We have chosen Mars and Neptune for you to listen to.

While listening to the music we would like you to create a picture – it does not need to be a drawing. More an expression of your feelings while listening to it.

You can choose what medium you work in – for example paint, coloured pencil or chalk.

We can’t wait to see what you create!  

Wednesday and Thursday: Topic –

Over the next couple of days we would like you to research the Apollo 11 mission. This was the mission that took Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins on a trip to the moon. Try to find out key information, such as dates, times, locations and quotes.

Here are some websites that might help:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/48789792

https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/history/moon-landing/

https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/science/space/neil-armstrong-facts/

We would then like you to turn this information into a newspaper report. We have attached a poster to remind you of the key features of a newspaper report. We have also attached a newspaper template that you may like to use. 

Newspaper poster

Newspaper template word format for typing

Newspaper template pdf format for printing/viewing

Friday: Inset Day

Couple of extra things you could work on:

Sport

You may remember back in the first lockdown we suggested you took part in the Virtual Sussex Games! Well guys it is back for the winter! This week the sport/skills is Bob Run! To find out more check out their Instagram account. We will also sent out extra information as and when we receive it J.

Topic

We have come across this website:
