Hi all,

We hope you have had a good week and have enjoyed completing the tasks that we set last week.

When you are completing this week’s tasks you will just need to make sure you have a pencil and a piece of paper. You will not need to print anything off.

English

This week we will be focusing on writing a setting description. There are 5 lessons in total. There are some reading tasks to start with before you practise writing your own description. At the beginning of the lesson there is a quiz to complete before you watch the lesson video. During the video, there are opportunities to pause it and complete the tasks. At the end of the video, you are able to mark your work.  We would love it if you can share some of your writing in the comments on the blog.

Reading 

Remember to use the Scholastic Reading Library alongside your own books to ensure you are reading regularly.

Maths

This week’s maths will be set via the Oak National Academy. In each lesson, there is a quiz to complete before watching the lesson’s video. During the video, there is time to pause it and complete the independent activity before going through the answers.

Lesson 2 – https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/maths/describing-translations-year-5-wk1-2/

Lesson 5 – https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/maths/describe-position-after-translation-year-5-wk1-5/

In addition, the BBC Bitesize website has weekly challenges to have a go at. Remember you just need to use a pencil and paper to help you work out the answers.

On TT Rockstars, we have now set up battles between the boys and girls in each class. Last week, 5MW had the most points beating both 5LT and 5TH.

Science

During this lesson, you will learn about how igneous rock is formed, how to recognise it as well as how igneous rock is used. https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/foundation/how-is-igneous-rock-formed-year-5-wk1-3/

Art

This lesson teaches you how to create a frottage patchwork from rubbings of different textures around your home. https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/foundation/texture-treasure-hunt-year-5-wk1-5/

 

We look forward to reading about how you are getting on.

      Despite a few errors found within the videos both M & myself are enjoying this weeks homework, particularly the Art – have spent time finding loads of textures both inside & outside
      Hope this version of homework carries on

    I was under the impression there was Microsoft teams for the children to remain in contact with their classmates and teachers should they need any guidance. Have I completely lost the plot or is this something that my child can access?

      Hi Mrs Harding, We are not currently using Microsoft teams for communication between the children and their teachers, however children are able to post questions or some of their work on the blog for us to see and reply to.

      Thanks, Miss Whaites

    Maths Lesson 3 today has 4 errors on the answers –
    “Your Turn” Black to Blue Line moves 2 units down, not 1 unit down.
    “Your Turn” Black to Green Line moves 1 unit left, not 1 unit right.
    “Independent Task” Black to Red Line is originally (3,10) and (6,10) not (3,10) and (7,10).
    “Independent Task” Black to Green Line moves 3 units right, not 3 units left.

    Maybe these work pages/videos need to be checked prior to being completed by students?

    Thank you.

    Inside the ocean, where miniature fish swam, multi-coloured coral swayed in the ocean breeze.
    The castle( that was made of huge rock) stood quietly in the darkness.
    The furious ocean- which was lit by the glistening moon- rumbled in the darkness.

      You have used some wonderful adjectival phrases Ergi and have attempted to include some different punctuation. Try using your sentence menu to use different sentence starters or structures. Keep up the hard work.

      Great prepositional opener (with comma to mark the clause).

      Well done Ergi. You have included some good ideas for your extra information. Try using these skills in your writing next week. Keep working hard.

    Hi this is my work for the setting description!

    As you walk through the large oak doors leading into the great hall of Hogwarts, an aroma of freshly cooked chicken and pumpkin pie hits you as dessert had just been served. Chatter fills your ears as houses cheered as ghosts flew across the tables. 4 extra-ordinary tables were stretched out and filled top to bottom with Gryffindoors, Ravenclaws , Hupplepuffs and Slytherins. Looking up, you can see a moving galaxy painted across the ceiling. 1st years could not stop looking around, they were like a swarm of frantic bees buzzing.

    A little while after, a silver bearded man called Dumbeldore – the headmaster of the school – stood up and chinked his glass two times in an ornate pattern. Incredibly, the empty dishes, scraped plates and half-drunk pumpkin jugs disappeared into thin air and silence fell.

      Really like the imagery you are included in your writing Rosie. You have also used a range of sentence starters. Just be careful not to use numerals in your writing. Use words instead. Keep up the hard work Rosie.
      Hope you and the family are well.

      Some excellent sentence variations here Rosie. Great use of commas to mark clauses. You have clearly worked hard on this. Well done…2hp 🙂

    Here is my setting description
    As you walk into the gloomy house, shivers run down your spine.You can hear bat wings flapping in the pitch-black room next to you.Slowly, a creaking door opens by itself and you hear frightening laughter from the rooftops A revolting stench of rotten corpse catches your nostrils.All of a sudden, you see a glowing light. As you are about to open the door you feel like you are being followed. It is too terrifying, you run out of the abandoned building as fast as your legs can go and look at the gleaming moon

      I think I would as fast as I could from that building too. I like that you described what you can see, hear, smell and feel in your description. Remember to check you have used a comma after a subordinating clause. Mrs Turiccki

    Jenny has started a Roblox Story at home – Setting description and character description
    On the magical island of Adopt Me, a range of joy and love is shared. This story is different! A story of sadness and emotion. In the neighbourhood on Pumpkin Street (number 10!), a girl called Bella lived. She lived a life not as happy as you would expect. Bella sat on the floor in her room. She was surrounded by black walls, a single bed was placed by her window and of course it had a black bed spread. On the side of her terrible dull bedroom was a chest. It had all of her special stuff inside. The red hair placed on her head was scruffy. Her plain blue t-shirt and her yellow shorts were placed untidily on her slim body. Black broken trainers sat next to her feet because they hurt her feet like her feelings.

    (Note from her mum – its quite dark, promise Jenny’s really happy, Bella is not a reflection of how she feels during lockdown……ha!!!!!)

      Wow Jenny what a fantastic start to a story. I cannot wait to read the rest. This has definitely gripped me as a reader! You have varied your sentence structure and have described Bella and her bedroom very well. Remember to grab a thesaurus to up level your word to enhance this piece even more.
      Amazing!
