Half-term Home Learning

Posted on Sunday 24 May 2020 by Mr Catherall

Because this week is half-term, we’re taking a break from the usual daily home learning tasks (just like we did at Easter). Instead, we’ve prepared a menu of home learning activities that you might want to dip into this week – these are optional only, but you might want to encourage your child to have a go at being a quiz master, doing some up-cycling, presenting a cookery masterclass or any of the other activities.

Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have a happy and healthy half-term.

When making your recommendations, we would like you to:
– mention what the text is about
– give reasons for your choice
– think about who you are going to recommend the text to
An example sentence within your recommendation may look something like this:
I would recommend the Harry Potter series of books because through Harry, Ron and Hermione’s friendship it shows you that your friends can become your family. Additionally, it teaches you to appreciate the people close to you.”

Morning, team! Your tasks today are maths, art and science!

First, though, a quick word from Miss Wilson…

Happy Wednesday! As you know, we should have been going on our Y6 residential today until Friday. I’m absolutely gutted we can’t go. It would have been a fab celebration after a tough week and you guys deserve the best celebrations for how hard you work. For the rest of this week, I’ve decided to scrap maths for a Virtual Residential where you could win the title of Camp Champion or Camp Hero. Off we go!

Y5 Maths – LO: add mixed numbers
Today’s task is to watch the following video: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/  ‘Week 5, Lesson 3, Mixed Numbers’ and answer the following questions.
Click  here to start the questions!
Y5&6 Art – LO: drawing and colour
Today we are steering away from an explicit reading task and doing an art task instead!
Your task is to pick any object in or around your house and draw it! However, you may only use two colours – no more, no less.
When drawing your object, these are some things we’d definitely like you to think about (R2s):
  • – Use two colours from opposite sides of the colour wheel (a warm colour and a cool colour such as red and blue/orange and green/yellow and purple) as this will create more of a contrast. These are called complementary colours!
  • – Think about where your light is coming from and where your shadow is going to be
  • – What colour do you think the shadow will be? Will it be the warm colour or the cool colour?
  • – What colour do you think the lighter parts will be? Warmer or cooler colour?
  • – Fill the page as best you can
  • – Don’t forget to look at the detail on the object as well its outline
  • – Maybe sketch it out in pencil first before going into colour
  • – Think about form. The object is more than likely going to be three-dimensional
 
Below is a colour wheel to help you choose which two colours to use.
I hope you all spot the spelling mistake in the colour wheel, too!
When completing this task, you might like to have some classical music on in the background to help ensure a calm atmosphere – here are some composers:
– William Grant Still

– Johann Sebastian Bach

– Amy Beach
 
– Ludovico Einaudi
We want you to really consider the points above, therefore we would like you to spend 30-40 minutes completing your drawing.
Please send your drawings to your teacher! Who knows, they may feature on your class news page!

Y5&6 Science – LO: adaptation

Today’s task is to complete this lesson from BBC Bitesize. Your task today is to complete activities one and two.

Challenge
Have a go at the experiment below, like we’ve done in class.

Good morning everybody and happy Monday!

Before we start, I’d just like to apologise if the formatting is sometimes a little unclear – the website doesn’t recognise the enter button sometimes for unknown reasons! So sorry about this and if it’s really an issue, let me know.

Hope everyone is keeping happy and healthy! You can remember the acronym CALMER to help you!

  • Compassion – be kind to yourself and be mindful of mental health
  • Activity – keeping moving and exercising can have huge benefits
  • Limit social media where you can
  • Manage any worries – don’t bottle it up! Talk to someone.
  • Engage with family and friends on the phone, by text or video call
