Blakeney’s Week Ahead Monday 2nd November

Good morning!



I hope you are all well. No doubt you have heard the news that our bubble will be self-isolating this week. I am confident that you all know what to do and that you will be able to stay on track with your learning: we have seen the website several times and have used the blended learning lessons in class to make you familiar with them. If you have any questions, do get in touch, however.

Try to keep up with what we would be doing at school this week – do some Maths and English daily, and do the Topic, Computing and Science lessons on different days. Practise your spellings and times tables daily and do daily reading comprehensions.

Links and resources are provided below.

Be sure to email your work to me at: [email protected] (For the period of Ms. Black’s absence send to [email protected])


If you would like to have the links to the Power Maths powerpoint presentations, then please email Ms. Nordloh (her email address is on Cromer class page) and she will be able to send them direct to you.

We are going to write our Monster Report at the end of the week, but there are a few activities you need to do first if you are going to produce the best report you can.

Here is a video clip that explains how to write a report. It tells you to use sub-headings, but I don’t want you to do that. I need you to use topic sentences instead.


I have also found a clip from a real journalist on how she structures a report. She talks about why a plan is important and how important proof-reading (checking your work) is.


Watch these and then do the activities below. You will need all this knowledge to write the best report you can!

Monday 2.11.20

First you need to think about formality – how formal your report needs to be. Formality activity

Then we need to think about how we will begin each paragraph. (We mentioned this in class.) Topic sentences activity

Now we can start to think about ideas we might want to use for our own invented monster. New Ideas activity

Tuesday 3.11.20

The next thing to do is to draw our monster and annotate our drawing. (Remember ‘annotate’ means to write notes around our work. We need to make sure we use our ideas – that we wrote in the last activity –  to tell us what to draw. It is that information we use to annotate our text.) Remember to colour your drawing to bring your monster ‘to life’!

Wednesday 4.11.20

Then onto our plan (the ‘map’ for our writing). Plan your text

Thursday 5.11.20

Today you need to write your draft copy of your invented text. Follow these guidelines now it’s time to write your monster report and you have everything you need to produce a top quality information report on your monster.

Here is the original text Swamp Monsters model text and the vocabulary that we looked at Match the vocabulary to its definition in case you need them.

Friday 6.11.20

Today you need to write your final copy of your text and email it to your teacher.

Make sure your work is neatly presented using your neatest handwriting. Remember you can include pictures and diagrams if you wish.

Work hard and I look forward to reading your amazing, inventive Monster Report!

Reading Comprehension

Here is a reading comprehension for you to do. Year 5-6 Reading extract and questions – Jabberwocky  there are 2 different sets of questions – set A and set B. Do them both. This should take you 2 days; one day for each set of questions. You can choose which day you do these on. When you have finished – and only when you have finished – the answers are at the end. How did you do? Use the answers to show you how you should have answered. Don’t worry if you don’t do so well, this is here for you to learn from. Have a go!


This week we are beginning our topic on ‘Light’.

Here are 2 lessons to watch .  https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/what-is-light-c4w30d and https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/how-can-we-see-objects-6ct6ct

Then you need to do one of these worksheets: Activity Sheet Light Learning Lab

Our Design and Technologywork this half term is about how architecture has changed over time. This week we will be looking at what do we know about architecture over time.

Has the design of buildings changed over time? What do you know about this? Are their any examples of different building styles in King’s Lynn?

Look at video – a brief timeline of architectural style to set the scene – have we seen anything like any of these? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7Eu_ug2ZpY

Which styles do we like/dislike? Why?


The computing work for this week is here: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/whatmakes-a-goodwebsite-c9gkcc

The lesson is made up of:

• Video
• Worksheet
• Quiz
