We have been so proud with how you have all managed.
You have shown a lot of resilience!
You have proven that you are autonomous learners!
And you have responded to the home learning with high-quality work.

We are really looking forward to seeing everyone back in school on Monday!

You have done a great job building up to your diary entry all week. Today is the day to put all of your ideas together into a really engaging diary entry full of all the features you've worked on. 
 
Use your research sheet, your practiced features, your plan and your amazing author skills to create something you will feel really proud of.
 
We are so excited about your diary entries that we have decided they deserve a place in your school books so...
 
If you write on paper today (which we'd prefer) please bring your diary entry into school so your teacher can give you face-to-face feedback on Monday and we will stick it in your Enquiry book.
 
If you do your diary electronically, email it to your teacher or add it to Seesaw so they can print it and your teacher can give you face-to-face feedback on Monday and we will stick it in your Enquiry book.

Well done for all of your work on fractions - you can now do absolutely everything!

Today we are answering word problems. Be sure to use RUCSAC to ensure that you solve these questions correctly. Be aware of what the question is asking you to do! It may be that there are 2 steps.
And please ensure that you answer all of the questions in full sentences.

Spend 10 minutes on the arithmetic
Go through 1/2 Chilli and have a go at some challenges
 
 
- There is a video of Mr Boyle going through the first 3 questions of 1 Chilli. Once you have had a go at these yourself, watch the video where he will model through the process and explain how to answer these questions.

Mrs Hendy’s Mathematicians

Today we are just going to practice multiplying and dividing by 10,100 and 1000.

Some people prefer to simply add zeros, but I will also go through the method on a place value table in the video below:

Remember to always double check your answers, Multiplying will make a number BIGGER and division is the same as sharing, so the number will be smaller.

For example 10 x 45 = 450. I have added one zero, because 10 has one zero.

                   100 x 45 = 4500. There are two zeros in 100.

If you are dividing the number becomes smaller. 

                       450 ÷ 10 = 45 I have removed one zero, because there is one zero in 10

                      4500 ÷ 100 = 45 I have removed two zeros, because there are two zeros in 100

                      350 ÷ 1000 = 0.35 - This is where a place value table makes things easier.....

Show and Tell
At the start of this week, we asked you to only post work on Seesaw that was related to the home learning. Thank you for respecting this request as it has made it a lot easier for us to see all your hard work.
 
As this afternoon is the end of our home learning week, we will again be encouraging you to also use Seesaw to share things from your life e,g, pets, days out, achievements. 
 
If you don't have anything like this to share this afternoon, that is absolutely fine. Be safe in the knowledge that whenever you do have something to share, it will be gratefully received and accepted onto our Seesaw page :-).

Today, you will be planning your diary entry. There are no slides today, but there is a planning template to use if you would like to. There is also a WAGOLL of how you could use the planning sheet.

Remember you are not writing today, so just make notes about how you will structure your diary entry and what features you will include in each section.

The planning process is very personal to each author so if you don't want to use the template provided that is fine, but please spend time today thinking about how you want your writing to look tomorrow.

At the end of today, you should feel totally ready to write your diary entry tomorrow and know what each paragraph will be about and what features you will use and where.
We are mathematicians
 
Today you will be consolidating your learning. We have learnt how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions! 
The questions today will be on all of our previous learning so if you get stuck, scroll down and revise the lessons from earlier in the week.

Spend 10 minutes on the arithmetic starter.
Watch the video to refresh your memory, using all four operations with fractions.

Can you learn the Danish words to this liberation song which was sang throughout Denmark at the end of WW2?
 
Challenge: Either add a video of yourself singing the song to Seesaw or maybe you could review the song. How does it make you feel signing it? Do you imagine it would have made the Danish people feel united and patriotic? Can you find any other examples of similar songs sung by other countries involved in WW2? Share them to Seesaw if you can
 
 
There is also a presentation below, which goes through the countries of the UK and Europe.
Go through the presentation and learn how to say these countries in French. This will be really useful as part of our Enquiry.

Cooking!

My grandma used to always make these cakes for me when I was little in the 1970’s, waaay after the war ended. But they were baked in wartime as they used very little ingredients and were a special treat. You can use raisins or sultanas for the dried fruit in this recipe.

Today you will be continuing to divide fractions by integers (whole numbers).
However, unlike yesterday, the numerators of these fractions are not divisible by the integer!

So...how do we do that?

First, spend 10 minutes doing the arithmetic questions below.
Then watch the video, which will explain the process and (more importantly) why the process works.
Have a go at 1 and 2 chili questions.
Then select some challenges to do.

Remember, Miss Setter's group must do her challenges, however everyone is welcome to have a go.

Also, please remember to show as much of your working as you can on Seesaw. This will make it much easier for you do identify any possible mistakes, but also helps your teacher to see your methods and processes so we can support you better.

Monday 23rd November
 
We are Mathematicians
This week we will be dividing fractions. There are some complicated processes later in the week, but today's lesson should be straightforward. The process is simply to divide the numerator by the integer - leave the denominator alone. Then simplify, if possible.

To start, spend 10 minutes going through the arithmetic questions below.
Watch the video on dividing fractions by integers.
Work through 1 and/or 2 chili questions.
Go for some challenges.

All of the work set is for any group to complete, you are autonomous learners so challenge yourselves! Miss Setter has made challenges specific to her group, so you must do these if you are in her group. If you are not in her group and would like to complete them anyway - go for it!
 
We are Readers
 
If you are on Owl, you can find an audio reading of Mr Taylor reading our next scene below. You can also open the pdf or flipchart which will take you to the pre chapter reading, pages of the book for you to read along and questions on the final slide.
 
If you are a Swift, Miss Setter has posted a video of herself reading the next chapter.
Please answer the questions below that video.
 
We are Authors
Please find below a smart notebook or pdf file of today's slides. The task is to analyse the features of a diary entry and a WAGOLL has been made which you will also see below. If you have Microsoft word, you should be able to open the word version of the WAGOLL and highlight the features electronically.
 
We are Scientists
You have spent a couple of weeks practically experimenting with electrical circuits. As we are out of the classroom today, we have prepared a theoretical lesson for you to think about electricity in the home and how we can always ensure we are using electricity safely.
 
We are looking for extra learning opportunities
Please find a pdf file of the 2016 SPAG SATS paper. In exactly a week, you will be doing the 2017 paper so it would be a great idea for you to look over the 2016 version and consider what you can now do which you couldn't in September and what you could still practice this week,
 
Look out for some SPAG revision activities from Mrs Hendy.
 
Remember to keep working through your big plate/small plate challenges
 
 
 

Looking After Yourself 

We want you all to do the best you can, and we believe you all will during this isolation week. However we also know that at times you may feel overwhelmed and need some time out.

Taking a break to do something you enjoy is encouraged, as well as taking a moment to stay calm when things get tough.

We will share five short mindfulness videos over the week that can help you focus on your wellbeing.

6. Where is Sallie Besiakov's shop?
7. On page 127, Bamse reveals that Orlando is doing something related to the 'underground' and Orlando tells him to 'Shut up!'Papa just looks at them both and sighs. Why do you think Papa doesn't ask what Bamse means by 'underground' work?
8. Describe why Mama is upset when she returns home on page 128
9. Find the 'show me, don't tell me' on page 130. How does this show us how Orlando is feeling?
10. Can you find two different clues in the chapter that Masha is going to meet her German boyfriend?
11. Orlando tells Bamse they are working in 'Norweigian conditions'. Research what the resistance movement in Norway did and explain what you think Orlando means.
12. What evidence can you find in this chapter which shows Orlando isn't as good as being 'the man of the house' as he might think? In what way are the Skovlunds missing Papa already?

Mrs Hendy SPAG

Last week we were learning about Modal verbs

Modal verbs can be used to show:

  • Possibility (might, should)

  • Ability (can, could)

  • Obligation (must, have to)

  • Give permission (can, may)

Today we are learning about Co-Ordinating Conjunctions


Coordinating conjunctions

Conjunctions are joining words that link together parts of a sentence. The three main coordinating conjunctions are ‘and’, ‘but’ and ‘or’.

They can be used to join together two clauses in a sentence.

However, the clauses need to make sense on their own. For example:      I scored a goal. We won the match

You can add the coordinating conjunction ‘and’ in between these causes so the sentence reads: I scored a goal and we won the match.
