This term, in school, we will be reading the book ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar. The film is available to watch free on YouTube (it is also on some other platforms).

Foundation subjects:

·         Geography /Science- find out as much as you can about lizards. Present your findings as a fact file with lots of pictures and information.

·         Art – design your own lizard. The yellow spotted lizard plays a big part in the book ‘Holes’. We would like you to design your own lizard. It can be any colour and pattern you want. Add some notes to explain why it has the features that you have chosen.

·         Invent your own deadly creature: Where does it live? Why is it dangerous? What does it eat?

·         PE- Choose a daily fitness video (e.g Just Dance, Joe Wickes, Yoga by Adriane) and complete as close to 30 minutes as possible.

·         PSHE- Safety in action. Over the next two terms we will be covering the very important topic of keeping safe.  Start off with the safety in action challenge here: ESFRS_challenge.pdfESFRS_challengeanswers.pdf

Road safety: https://www.esfrs.org/your-safety/education-intervention/safety-in-action/virtual-safety-in-action/road-safety/

Have a go at the tasks on the site:

▫    draw a map of the safest route to school (you might want to include your new secondary school as well.

▫    Design a campaign reminding drivers what helps them react quickly on the roads and remind them of the risks?

Railway safety: https://www.esfrs.org/your-safety/education-intervention/safety-in-action/virtual-safety-in-action/railway-safety/  Try the quiz on the link.

Water safety:https://www.esfrs.org/your-safety/education-intervention/safety-in-action/virtual-safety-in-action/water-safety/    https://www.rlss.org.uk/pages/category/water-safety-information

 Design a poster to teach someone the main points about staying safe near open water.

Science: this term in science our topic is ‘Living things and their habitats’. The main focus will be classifying animals and plants. You can find some great resources for this on the BBC website. Here are some to get you started:

What is classification? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zn22pv4/articles/z3nbcwx

What is a vertebrate? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zn22pv4/articles/zp6g7p3

11.00: English 

 

Still combining English with our History learning, this week you are going to learn about the weapons used in World War 1 and how certain animals became very useful on the Front Line...

 

Monday: Today we would like you to explore the advancements of warfare that occurred during WWI. So many technologies were only just being invented at the time that the War broke out, by the time the war ended, so many more advancements had been created. Take a look at the website below, take some notes on each weapon. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqhyb9q/articles/zs666sg

Then choose 5 of your choice to write what they are and how they helped during the war, and answer these 4 questions:

1. Which piece of technology do you think was the cleverest design and why?

2. Which piece of technology do you think the Soldiers would have appreciated the most and why?

3. Are there any technologies above that we still use today, and have changed/developed a lot?

4. Are there any technologies above that we still use today, and have stayed very similar?


Tuesday & Wednesday: Animals used in the war

 

This week we are going to be looking at how animals were used during the war.

 

Tuesday: Today you are going to complete the reading comprehension on ‘The unsung heroes of WWI’. Read it carefully and use the text and your inference and deduction skills to answer the questions. Once you have completed it, use the answer sheet to help you mark. If you make any mistakes go back through and edit. This will be extremely helpful for your work tomorrow. If you do this extremely quickly you could start tomorrow’s work as there is lots of information out there!

AnimalsofWW1readingcomprehensionnoanswers.pdf

Wednesday: Today we would like you to research how animals were used in the war. Lots of different animals were used for a range of jobs, some you may be extremely surprised about! You may even learn about some famous ones!

Here are two good links to help you:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqhyb9q/articles/zndqf4j

Weird and Wonderful Creatures - WW1 Uncut: Dan Snow

Create a mind map of the different animals and how they were used, include as much detail as you can and illustrate it too if you would like!

 
Friday: How were animals used in the war?

Using the information you collected yesterday we would like you to you write a report on how animals were used in the war. Think about what you learnt in your panda report to help you structure this.

 

You need to include:

 

Introduction- explain that animals were used in the war for a range of different jobs.

 

Subheadings- you need a different paragraph for each animal. Explain how they were used and any interesting stories or famous animals that you find. Include a picture for each one.

 

Conclusion- link to modern day life with how animals are now used differently/similarly.

 

You have 2 days to write this so take your time and include as much detail as possible and ensure that there are illustrations/diagrams.

 

*Remember to write in past tense, use subheadings and paragraphs to structure, include a range of conjunctions and punctuation for parenthesis.*

 

12.00: Time to log on and complete some work on Spelling Shed

 

12.15: Lunch time. 

 

13:00 Meet us on Teams for our assembly (Tuesday).

 

13.20: 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: Science (What is reflection and how can we use it?)

 

In this lesson you will be learning about reflection, the two types of reflection and reflective and non-reflective materials and their uses.

 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/what-is-reflection-and-how-can-we-use-it-6mt3gd

 

Tuesday: Music

 

During the war, music was a key part of life. Songs were composed during the war to raise the morale of soldiers. These songs covered a variety of themes.

Today we would like you to listen to 5 famous songs (they are all available on you tube) some are extremely catchy! We would like you to think about what the songs could be about. We would then like you to think about what you like and dislike about the song (try and think about the lyrics). Write them down and then send them to your teacher.

Challenge: For those of you who enjoy singing, you may want to try and learn one of the songs. You could record yourself singing and send it to us, it would cheer us up no end!

1.      It's a Long Way to Tipperary

2.      Keep the Home Fires Burning

3.      Pack up your troubles

4.      Au Reviour but not Good-Bye, Soldier Boy

5.      Land of Hope and Glory.

Challenge: For those of you who enjoy singing, you may want to try and learn one of the songs. You could record yourself singing and send it to us, it would cheer us up no end!

 

Wednesday: PE- Just Dance

 

This week you are going to complete lots of Just Dance (I know that the children in class are loving doing one of these each day). There are hundreds of different songs on You Tube, all you have to do is dance along!

 

Choose songs that you want to dance to and have a go! They are only 5 minutes long, so try and do at least 5/6! They become quite addictive!  

 

Why not have a go at the dances that the teachers would choose:

Mrs Packer- Can't touch this by Mc Hammer

Miss Barber- Dancing Queen by Abba

Miss Chad-  Spice up your life by Spice Girls

 

Let us know what songs you complete and have fun! 😊

 

Friday: Science/DT

 

Today’s DT lesson is going to link to your science lesson this week. Your job today is to design and make a periscope, similar to the ones used in the trenches to watch out for the enemy in No Man's Land. These are still used today in submarines, you may even have a toy one at home!

 

Watch this video to explain how periscopes work: https://www.youtube.com/watch/Xp7Qe1R_S6g

 

Then, time to have some fun! Follow the instructions on the picture attached to make your own using mirrors you can find in your house (your mum/sisters make up mirrors would be perfect) and a cereal box!

 

You could then write a short explanation of how they work and send pictures of this to your teacher!

 

 

Thursday- World Book Day!

Today everyone in the school is going to be reading the book ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers.

Have a listen to the book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPPQdDwTUvE

 

Reading: Have a look at the picture from the opening page of the book of the Earth.

Think about these questions:

What do you see?

How does the scene make you feel? Write down some emotions and the reasons why.

Does it remind you of anything you have seen or experience before?

What might it feel like to be on the boat in the scene?

What questions do you have about the picture/book?

You then either need to stick a small version of the picture into the middle of the page and then annotate around it, or just write the questions as subheadings and write your answers underneath.

 

PSHEE/English: In this book, you can see that Jeffers has a strong bond with his son and at the end of the story he reminds him that even when he is not here there will always be others who will look after him.

We would like you to think about who those special people in your life are. Why are they special? What do they do that makes you feel happy and safe? What are your favourite memories with them?

You are then going to write a short letter to a special person in your life, explain that you are writing to them because they are extremely special to you and why. You may want to include special moments, memories or things you do together.

You may choose to write a letter to someone who is not with us anymore, sometimes it is nice to write down the feelings and memories that you share with people, whether they are with us or not.

We then thought it would be nice for you to send these letters to your loved ones, receiving happy post is lovely! So take a stroll to the post box and send it!

 

Maths:  Emotions chart

Last week you looked at graphs and collecting and using data. Today you are going to create your own bar chart based around emotions and the story. 

You need to think of 10 emotions that people may be feeling right now e.g. lonely, angry, bored, content, happy, loved.

You are then going to ask as many people as you can to choose the top 3 emotions that they are feeling. You may want to do a tally chart for the emotions. You may want to text your friends, ask your parents, siblings, phone your grandparents, try and gather as much information as you can!

You then need to draw your graph (there is an example picture to refresh your memory), remember to have the x and y axis, the emotions along the bottom (the x axis) and the number of people along the y axis. You then need to draw the bars showing the amount of people that chose that emotion and then colour it in. Don’t forget to label your axis and give your graph a title!  If you would like to create this on the computer that is fine by us, excel is a great way to create quick and easy graphs!

We would then like you to write about what you notice from the bar chart e.g. which emotions are people feeling most/least at the moment, why do you think it could be.

 

 Science/history: 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? Write a list of the animals that you find and draw a picture of them if you can! Where did they live and why did they become extinct?

What can we do to protect animals on our planet?

This lesson involves a practical activity so take a minute to grab a light source (e.g. lamp, torch or phone light), a piece of paper, a piece of cardboard and a piece of something transparent (e.g. clear plastic). Enjoy!

Then we would like you to get creative with this and create a collage or picture using anything you want: paper, pens, pictures from magazines, fabric, flowers etc. We have included some examples as ideas but the choice is up to you.

Thursday: PE- Yoga

This week, alongside the Virtual Sussex Games (see link below) you are going to stretch it out with some Yoga with Adrienne. Yoga is a fantastic way to build strength, flexibility and confidence and helps calm and refresh the body and mind. Get your parents involved too as this is suitable for ALL ages! Enjoy! 😊  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dF7O6-QabIo

Friday:  DT/art trench making

Linking to your learning this week on trenches, we thought it would be fun for you to create your own 3D model of a trench in as creative a way as you would like! You need to think about what you have learnt about how they look, their shape and contents, try and be as historically accurate as you can!

You could use lego, make a model out of a shoe box, make a trench cake or simply draw/paint one if you don’t have any of these resources.

We look forward to seeing your creations, don’t forget to send pictures to your teachers! Have fun!

Building on everything that we have learnt this term about climate change, the environment and saving the planet, we would like you to use things in your house to create a large piece of art work (art attack style), sorry parents! So for example you may want to make a tree out of green/brown clothing, food, household items, you may decide to make a pair of lungs that look like the trees (linking to deforestation). You can add as much detail as you would like. You may want to write a message in it or simply create the picture. Then write an explanation of your piece of art and what it shows and then take a picture of your art and send it to your teacher. We can’t wait to see these!

Thursday: PE- fitness session

Today you are going to choose a 20 minute exercise session from this link, they have lots of different themes e.g. Harry Potter, Star Wars, Avengers, Frozen. Choose one and complete it. If you enjoy it and want to complete 2 then go ahead, the more physical activity the better! You may also want to do a shorter one in the mornings to get your brain active!

https://www.youtube.com/user/Glennhigginsfitness

When you have completed one, I want you to think what you liked about it, the movements that were used and how you could improve it. Then have a go at adding some of your own movements e.g. Harry Potter you may do a movement involving flying or fighting a basilisk. You could then write these down or even film yourself completing them and send them to your teacher.  Enjoy!
