Wells Class – Monday Blog 6-7-20Posted on Monday, July 6th, 2020
Hello Wells Class,
I hope you are keeping well and have enjoyed the weekend. What have you been doing? I’ve been busy gardening, doing DIY and going for walks in the local woods.
Please find the new Home Learning Grid (HLG) for this week here: Years 5 and 6 6.7.20
For English, we will use ‘The Cave of Curiosity’ and ‘In the City of Silences’ poems: In the City of Silences
The Cave of Curiosity as a focus for the week to create combinations of a place eg city with an abstract noun (something you can feel and exists but you can’t see it) eg curiosity. There is also an extend the sentences sheet to help you with your ideas: Sentences to expand
You might also want to use this resource from Pobble 365 to do some Short Burst Writing: 341_Castle_Midnight I will be using it with my Bubble Group and it would be great to see some of your writing too.
For your spellings, please use the Y3-4 spelling mat Y3-4 Statutory spellings mat or Y5-6 spellings mat Y5-6 Statutory spellings mat to pick 10 spellings to learn during the week using Look/Cover/Spell/Write/Check instead of the spelling lesson for Thursday on the HLG.
For Maths, we will finish Unit 14 and reasoning about 3-D shapes before moving onto Unit 15 L1-3 which is all about reflection, co-ordinates and translation of shapes. Remember, to use your Tackling Tables login to keep your multiplication and division skills sharp.
In Topic, we are looking at if Pirates still exist today and there is some information about this on the HLG. A website I have found useful is: https://kids.kiddle.co/Piracy
In Art, we will continue with our work about optical illusions and in Science please continue with your Powerpoint/Google slides presentation on Endangered animals. Mrs Harris has done an example to help you with your ideas here: Polar Bears Week 5
For PE, there are a selection of activities and there are also the Joe Wicks PE workouts on a Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. You can also access all the previous PE sessions on his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
Please remember to use Education City for the activities you have been set and you can also challenge each other to spellings or multiplication tables games. If you have access to Lexia then please use this to help you with your spellings and reading skills.
Remember to email me with your work and learning from the week by Friday so I can celebrate and share it on the website. This can be work from the Home Learning Grid as well as other skills you have been learning at home eg gardening, baking.
Finally, take care and stay safe.
