Year 5 Home Learning Week commencing 1st June

Hi!

We hope you have enjoyed your half term week. What has been your highlight?

Internet Safety (This activity is to completed at home)

Here is some further activities to keep you all safe on the online (Answers are at the bottom of the blog post)

Activity 1: Watch Play Like Share, Episode 2

  • Watch Episode 2: Who’s Magnus? with your child at www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/watch/ .
  • Use the following questions to chat about the cartoon:
    1. What did you think? What did you like about this episode?
    2. What does Sam do with Megan’s baby photo?
    3. How does Megan feel and what does she do in response?
    4. What upsets Ellie and who does she turn to?
    5. Is Magnus the best person to support Ellie? Who else could help? [Ellie has only just met Magnus online and doesn’t know him ‘in real life’, so he is not a good source of support for her. It would be better to talk to a close friend, family member or another adult she trusts.]

Activity 2: What is OK to share?

  • Ask your child what they remember about Episode 2 of Play Like Share.
  • Explain it is important to think about how someone else might feel if you share a photo or video of them. Sometimes people share photos or videos that might be unkind, or upset or embarrass other people. Ask your child:

6. When does this happen in PLS? [Sam shares a baby photo of Megan]

  • With your child, read each scenario below and ask them to answer with thumbs up, down and sideways!

  • Discuss their answers, using the answer sheet located at the bottom of the blog post.

English

resource image

The ground began to shake. Birds sprang from the branches of trees in a state of panic as the huge figure crawled out of the earth.

First it was an elbow…Then a head…Then a colossal, moss-covered, stone face …

Activity 1

Choose one word to describe the giant. What has awoken the giant? What was he doing under the ground? How will people react to him? What will he do next?

Activity 2

Imagine you are the first person to meet the giant. What would you say to him? How do you think he will reply. Record your conversation with him using inverted commas for the speech.

Activity 3 

Improve these sentences: The big giant opened his mouth and yelled. His big head was a grey colour. He was really big and angry.

Activity 4 

An almighty bellow erupted from the giant’s enormous mouth, shaking the windows of the house. He dragged his immense torso out of the ground, then his feet (which were the size of double-decker buses) and stood up to his full height.

Menacingly, he turned and strolled towards the house, a look of hunger in his bulging eyes…

Carry on the story. What happens next? Who will the giant meet? What will he do? What type of character will he be?

Remember to include a balance of speech, action and dialogue in your story. Make sure you use a range of sentence starters and include a relative clause in your writing.

Reading 

What is the best book that you have read at home? We have assigned a book all about Oceans and Seas for you to read on the Scholastic website. There are some amazing images in it. The image of the Pacific Ring of fire is spectacular. What is your favourite fact from the book.

JK Rowling has released a new story online for you to read. It is called ‘The Ickabog’. You can find it at https://www.theickabog.com/read-the-story/

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrqj7nb

 

Internet Safety – Answers 

  1. Shares the photo and makes it public
  2. She feels angry/upset. She uses Sam’s account to write a mean comment about Ellie and Alfie.
  3. She thinks that Sam is posting mean comments about her. Megan is unkind to her and she loses the guitar-off. She turns to Magnus, who she has met online.
  4. Ellie has only just met Magnus online and doesn’t know him ‘in real life’, so he is not a good source of support for her. It would be better to talk to a close friend, family member or another adult she trusts.
  5. Sam shares a baby photo of Megan

Use this worksheet to help your discussion.

Have a great week!

    While trying to complete the English test about Mars, I stumbled upon a few questions that did not have the information I required to answer the question correctly. It resulted in answers I was not sure were correct. Can you please check that the tests you choose have the required information so that this does not happen in the near future.

    Hi. Unfortunately, the format of the assigned book has letters that are still tiny for me to see when I enlarge it. Can you find a way so that i can enlarge it even further?

    I don’t remember all of the questions with missing information but I think Q4 had some text missing from it. And I think Q2 had pieces missing from it as well.

      Jack, maybe you could add some more information about why he was happy (e.g the giant was happy because of his dream). 🙂

        Hi Jack,
        That sounds like a good story, I cannot wait to read it! If you would like your Giant to be happy, you can carry on with that.
        It would be good to practice improving our sentences, even if you choice not to use them in your final story.
        Thanks,
        Miss Whaites

    I’ve made my story so that the giant is always mad, but since I think he’s an earth giant near the queens palace the guards are constantly trying to calm him down. Whenever he is woke by all of the car’s engines going across the busy road is the worse times because he HATES cars and he normaly picks up 2 cars and throws them in the water!

    This is my work so far:
    Swinging as much weight around as he can, the giant was getting angrier than the flood of thunder that had just begun. BANG!!! CRASH!! 2 cars went tumbling into each other on to the palace! CRACK!! The palace now had several cracks in it, the guards tried to stop him by shooting at him but it was only worsening. THUD…THUD…THUD..THUD..THUD.THUD.THUD, now not only several cracks in the palace but now several foot marks in the roads and grass… he was running away!
    10 minutes later, the giant was already in a forest all the way in Sheffield!! To be exact in Endcliffe Park. By now it was noon so the giant tried to put up a tent he found but didn’t fit in it even though it was a family tent.. so he just slept in a tree. Tweet tweet went 2 birds. CRASH! That was the giant falling out of the tree. Now the giant was hurt… After nearly breaking his back, the giant took a look around town, he found a lot of posters with a picture of him saying- WANTED, THE PERSON WHO FINDS THIS GIANT GETS £50,000- above his head. That’s when he realised he needed a disguise.

      Wow! Well done Jack that story is fantastic! I have very much enjoyed reading this.

      You have used lots of figurative language techniques, well done. You have included lots of description and I can really picture the scene.
      Could you use a thesaurus to explore some higher level vocabulary to improve this piece ever further?
      Thank you very much for sharing it, I cannot wait to read more!

    My story so far:

    Everyone in the city, far and wide, witnessed the giant. The stone figure was so dense in volume, that he made marks in the ground! After several vibrations, the moss-covered creature had made its way to the building. Without thinking if there were any living beings in that century (because the giant had a three-millennial slumber), ate the house whole like a grape! He then ate ten more houses, containing fifty-three humans, seven dogs, three cats and one parrot, resulting in spitting fabric and fur after each grape-full.

    After the giant left the area, archeologists came and took samples to analyze. The analysis showed that there were human genes in the DNA. They concluded the emerged creature was the earliest descendant of the Nephilim, a race of giants. Now they need a solution to stop the beast…

    That’s how much I’ve written so far. I’ve edited and used a Thesaurus when writing and this the result.

    🙂

      What a fantastic story! Super work Dylan.
      I can see that you have thought hard about your story line and using different writing techniques. Well done on all of the different ISPACE openers you have used, as well as including some parenthesis. I very much like the comparison you have made to a grape, it has helped me to really imagine your story while reading.
      I cannot wait to read about the solution.
      Well done Dylan,

    About the hammock, there is barely any sunshine where I live. Even if it’s drizzling outside, I still go out (because of wanting to survive under a blanket LOL). Two days ago, I went outside when it was drizzling, then after a few minutes it started to heavily rain! I literally hid under the blanket for a minute or two, then started screaming for help! I do weird things sometimes, so don’t blame me for screaming like crazy!

    My Finnished peice of work:
    Fluctuating as much weight around as he could, the giant was getting angrier than the flood of thunder that had just begun. BANG!!! CRASH!! 2 cars went tumbling into each other on to the palace! CRACK!! The palace now had several cracks in it, the guards tried to stop him by shooting at him but it was only worsening. THUD…THUD…THUD..THUD..THUD, now not only several cracks in the palace but now several foot marks in the roads and grass… he was running away!
    10 minutes later, the giant was already in a forest all the way in Sheffield! To be exact in Endcliffe Park. By now it was noon, so the giant tried to put up a tent he found but didn’t fit in it (even though it was a family tent). So he decided to sleep in a tree. Tweet tweet went 2 birds. CRASH! That was the giant falling out of the tree. Now the giant was hurt…
    After nearly breaking his back, the giant took a look around town, he found a lot of posters with a picture of him saying ‘WANTED, THE PERSON WHO FINDS THIS GIANT GETS £50,000’ above his head. That’s when he realised he needed a disguise. So he quickly went around the corner and got a disguise – a tree. – he was now ready to go around town. He travelled around for a bit ( 23 minutes and 47 seconds ) and got questioned lots on why he is dressed up as an actual tree his answer was you guessed it…. about a tree! That’s when it got bad : someone recognised his voice! Instantly she called the police and took of his disguise. The police were there in 3.56 minutes and instantly rushed the giant to the queens palace, where he had belonged. And yes the young woman (only 21) get her £50,000 and is owning a business making her millions of pounds every week..
    Motto of the story: don’t get angry or karma will always get you back..

    My finished story:

    Everyone in the city, far and wide, witnessed the giant. The stone figure was so dense in volume, that he made marks in the ground! After several vibrations, the moss-covered creature had made its way to the building. Without thinking if there were any living beings in that century (because the giant had a three-millennial slumber), ate the house whole like a grape! He then ate ten more houses, containing fifty-three humans, seven dogs, three cats and one parrot, resulting in spitting fabric and fur after each grape-full.

    After the giant left the area, archeologists came and took samples to analyze. The analysis showed that there were human genes in the DNA. They concluded the emerged creature was the earliest descendant of the Nephilim, a race of giants. Now they need a solution to stop the beast…

    After forty-five minutes, the mossy figure was in Scotland. He was now thirsty. As if it were a cup, the monstrous being drank all the ten thousand litres of water! In the shadows of the trees, one of the researchers was inspecting the being. All of a sudden, a crack appeared on the Nephilim’s back! Water soon started seeping out. The onlooker immediately made a dash to his car.

    At the lab (four hours and thirty minutes later), the man explained everything he saw in detail for five minutes. They now knew his weakness.

    The next day, five water suppliers agreed with the research team and supplied them with one hundred thousand litres of water in total. They next tracked down the Nephilim and found him snoring like a Snorlax. By the time all the water was poured down his mouth, he shattered to pieces! But the researchers did not mind, at least there was not giant!

    Motto: The impossible is possible.

    As the giant approached the palace,which was in the centre of the forest, guards started shooting . Crash cars flew everywhere. The giant who was extremely furious lost its temper. The ground shook. As pale as ghosts, people ran out of their houses. Whilst running away, buildings collapsed behind him. He hid in a forest but little did he know someone followed him. It was a little boy who saw him from his window. Slowly, the boy came closer to the giant . While shivering, gave him food. “ who are you” the boy asked. “I was once a little boy like you and then I was cursed and I was a giant ever since” “ Everyone is afraid of me why aren’t you” the giant asked while tears fell from his eyes
    “ I have seen a lot of movies and read books about giants” the boy replied “ all of them had backstory . After a while, they both fell asleep .
    In the morning the moss covered giant saw posters stuck on all of the trees reading- missing child -.

      Great subordinate opener Ergi (with relative clause). Remember that capital to open speech (and punctuate before you close) but great imagination. Keep up the good work Ergi.
