This is the link you will need to watch the film of Tuesday if you weren't able to watch it via the email. Apologies if you've had trouble accessing it, I think I deleted the original link I added!
I hope you are all well and had a lovely half term - I certainly did with lots of lovely country walks, Zoom quizzes and discos and some good cycle rides.
But it's back to school now.
We have a couple of weeks to finish off for World War 2 and then our Topic will be in weekly themed topics across Years 3, 4 and 5.
Other than that, Maths will remain the same, with daily work and the PowerPoint presentations uploaded to the website as well as a reference to a website where you will be able to see a short video about the maths you are doing that day. I will leave two days worth of work and the work will have the answers at the end so you can self-mark.
English will comprise two elements: Reading and Writing.
The reading aspect will be based on VIPERS, carrying on with Goodnight Mr Tom for our novel. VIPERS stands for Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval and Summary. You should be able to find everything that you need to answer a question within the text. I might mix the order up, so for example P might come before V sometimes. Remember to answer in full sentences! The children have all done this before so should be expert at it! However if you have any questions please let me know.
The writing aspect will aim to build up a short piece of writing over a few days or a week. These shorter pieces of writing will then contribute to a longer piece of writing. Again this is very much the way that we write in school and the children can of course use their previous pieces of writing to help them in their final piece.
Hopefully this all makes sense and you will all continue to enjoy your work from home!
I love to see your work, so even if you have self-marked please do send photographs so I can take a look!
In Peace Class, we are continuing to develop our learning skills to become more independent and resilient in our learning. This includes using the 3B4ME approach, where we take three steps before asking an adult for help:
1) Brain - we think a bit harder and think through previous learning to see if that can support us.
2) Book/blocks - we make sensible choices about resources in the classroom that may help us.
3) Buddy - we ask a buddy to help to explain the concept that we are stuck on.
Please see the attached document as well as your emails.
You do not have to complete the whole document in one go. I would suggest that you read the chapter on Monday and then do one or two sections of VIPERS per day.
Today's Maths is a pre-assessment of how much the children know about Position and Direction. For some this won't take long, it's a quite a short piece of work. Please let the children do this independently. The answer sheet is also attached below.
Unfortunately our path has diverged from that of White Rose's so there is not a supporting film for you. If this changes I will put the link back here.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
I have put two extension tasks on as well as the VF and RPS. If you choose to do these then just choose three questions: either 1, 2, 3 or 4, 5, 6 or 7, 8, 9.
The second extension is more about problem solving and reasoning.
The answers to both extensions are available at the end of each document.
Our History is carrying on with WW2 looking at D Day, spies, the end of the war and then looking at Anne Frank and the Holocaust.
I have now deleted the Y3/4 and Y5/6 spelling lists from the National Curriculum. Please let me know if you would like these put back!
