Today’s Time Table

Keep your eyes peeled today – You may be getting a visit from some people you might recognise

I can’t thank you all enough for your hard work this half-term, you have consistently blown my socks away with the effort, perseverance and independence you have displayed since we went into lockdown in January. Well done each and every one of you and thank you parents for all your support and messages on Class Dojo, it wouldn’t be possible without you. I hope you all have a lovely, relaxing half-term.

Maths

For our last lesson on line graphs you need to look carefully at the information presented to you, some of the questions ask you to find the information by reading the line graph – you have all become really good at this over the last couple of lessons, the other questions focus on true/false statements so read each statement and check really carefully if this is the case on the line graph or what the graph is about. The final element that you need to focus on is your explanations – for this you need to use the maths behind your understanding when you are explaining what you have noticed.

When writing an explanation think about what evidence you have from looking at the graph and use this to detail exactly what you can see. If you need to explain differences or totals for something then show the maths you have had to do to find them. Remember in Maths explanations don’t always need written words you can prove them with the calculations you carry out.

I have attached the sheet below for you to complete today – please either answer the questions on the sheet or in your maths books.

10:30-10:50

Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

10:50 – 11:50

English

Today we will be completing our letters.  Now you have perfected your introductory paragraph and your first two paragraphs, we will now be moving onto our two final paragraphs.

Once you are happy with your introductory paragraph and your three paragraphs where you have made different points with evidence and feelings, I want you to write your final paragraph. You can look back over the work we have done together this week either in your blue books, the school website or on our Google classroom share screen if you need any more support. Your final paragraph is where you summarise all the previous points you have made in your letter so far, you  need to include again how you are feeling and most importantly you need to ask again what you want the mayor to do - pay the Pied Piper to get rid of the rats.

Please remember to close your letter correctly, (we know the recipient – Mr Mayor so we end the letter with ‘Yours Sincerely’.)

I have attached again to help you the plan we went through together and the example letter.  All lessons are on our Google classroom share if you need any further support.

We will be going over the remaining part of the letter and its content during our live lesson today in more detail.

Music

Charanga Yumu

Today’s lesson is focused on you accessing Charanga Yumu, if you follow the link below it will take you to the login page.

Please use your Yumu login to access Step 6 of the Adele work this week. Today you need to listen to and appraise Elvis Presley signing ‘Love Me Tender’ and ‘Eye of the Tiger’ by Survivor. Take some time to listen to them both a couple of times to become familiar with the songs – it may be that some of you have heard them before.

Answer the questions on the page once you have listened to them, make sure you jot these down somewhere – whether it’s in your blue lined books or on a word document that’s up to you.

Once you have done your listening and appraising, it’s over to you – practice your signing of Adele’s ‘Make You Feel My Love’. Once you think you have learnt the signs and are ready record yourself performing the song and send it over to me in an email to awall@theatlasfederation.co.uk .

It would be lovely if we could create a video of all of you signing the song.

1:15 – 2:35

Enrichment

We have worked hard this week with all our subjects so for enrichment today I have attached a quiz. I know you are all thinking, ‘oh no, not more work’ but do not worry this is going to be fun and you could learn something new.

The quiz is all about general knowledge. General knowledge is what we know about many different things.

Your task this afternoon is to answer the questions on the quiz attached.  Make sure you try to answer them all. Once you have answered them I want you to go and ask an adult or a family member in your house all the questions, make a note of their score and compare it to yours.

Your next challenge is to create a general knowledge quiz of your own.  You will need to decide what the answer to a question is first before you write the question.

Example:

Question – In the book by Roald Dahl, which disgusting food did the BFG eat?

Once you are happy with your quiz, go and ask an adult or family member the questions to see how much they know.

Only have 5 questions in your quiz.

During our reading time this afternoon we will go through the answers to my quiz and you will have the opportunity to share some of your very own quiz questions to the rest of the class. Have fun.
