So here goes for another week …!

Winterton Home Learning Timetable


Monday 07.12.20 – cold task

Today we will be writing our COLD TASK for a persuasive text. Think about the language you will use to persuade someone to do something. It maybe to persuade your parents to give you more pocket money, or to let you stay up late. It could be to persuade me to let you watch a film one afternoon, or to let you have an extra non-uniform day. What will you choose?

Spelling:  words ending in -ably











Here is a word search that includes the relevant words so you can practise and become more confident – Word Search Black and White and a handwriting sheet – Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet so you can have excellent handwriting as well. Do not be hesitant in doing this. You can also put the list words into a sentence – one sentence for each word. I have also included a fun activity for you to do – Letter Tiles Spellings Activity Sheet. Be observant when doing this to make sure you spell the words correctly! If you would like the Powerpoint presentation for this, please email me and I can send it to you.

Friday 11.12.20 – today we are working on the toolkit and boxing-up of our text.

Think back to what we have done in other units for the toolkit and boxing-up. Think about what the author has done to make his writing persuasive – what techniques has he used? Then move onto the structure of the text – what comes first? What is the second paragraph about and what is its purpose? Complete this analysis for the whole text.

Topic – Monday 07.12.20:

When people migrate it can be for different reasons. There are push factors – things that push people away from their homes (such as war) and there are pull factors, things that pull people towards another country (safety).

In this lesson, we will focus on these push and pull factors.

Lesson Resources: PPT

Task 4 Victorian Migration from Ireland

Watch BBC Bitesize video for more information: Migration from Ireland, 1750-1900 Emigration from Ireland was forced by poverty and disease. In England immigrants often faced terrible conditions and racism but were a vital labour force and became an integral part of the population. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zcyymnb/revision/1

Watch BBC Bitesize video for more information: Experiences of immigrants in the Industrial era 1750-1900 Large numbers of migrants fleeing hardship found work in industrial Britain. Most saw their lives improve slowly, though many faced often appalling living conditions and growing racial prejudice. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zykqrdm/revision/2


Computing Tuesday 08.12.20

Follow the breadcrumbs 

During this lesson children will begin to appreciate the need to plan the structure of a website carefully. They will plan their website, paying attention to the navigation paths (the way that pages are linked together). They will then create multiple web pages for their site and use hyperlinks to link them together as detailed in their planning.
