Reading Comprehension

We recommend reading for at least 30minutes a day. Remember you can split this up into chunks throughout the day.

Overview for week 18th January

Maths

We are moving onto Fractions. This week we will explore and recap what a fraction is before securing our knowledge of equivalent fractions. There are helpful video links.

In English, we begin the week with a Big Write! This gives you the opportunity to write about an adorable chick called Piper. Watch the video in the Video Resource Centre, this shows the video clip and gives you some ideas for vocabulary and sentence structures to help you get started.

We continue to practise persuasive writing in our other English lessons. The power point (also in the document list as a PDF in case anyone cannot access the power point) shows the tasks for each day, there are also videos in the Video Resource Centre to help.

For the reading comprehension this week, please read both of these short texts about mythical creatures and answer the questions.
For spelling this week, please use the link given in the Overview to practise spelling these words. You can also use the document here to practise putting words into context by creating sentences containing the target words.

RE

Think about the characters from the Easter story. Think about the behaviour of each one. Are they seen in a positive or negative light?

Pilate, Judas, the crowds, the soldier with the hammer, God, Jesus himself

Pick three of them and role play interviewing them. What might their responses be? Then decide which of them has a greater responsibility towards Jesus’ death.

PSHE

Following on from learning how exercise helps our well-being, we will be thinking about medication and the sun. Use the PowerPoint to read through and discover some information. Then finally design your own t-shirt to promote sun safety.

Following on from last week's learning about the life cycles of amphibians and birds, this week you will learn about the life cycles of insects and mammals. please look at the insect power point first, then the mammal one, as the mammal power point explains your task this week. You will be researching and presenting your learning as a project about two animals. 

Art

After discussing what a still life is and exploring the work of French artist Paul Cezanne(  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45GDU10n8Og )explain how their still life compares to that of Cezanne. Why might still life be an important art form? What can you see in the images? Compare Cezanne’s still life paintings to Vincent van Goughs.  Explain to the children how we still want to create texture but through a different media. In Pollock’s work we used flour, when sketching with graded pencils, we used techniques, look what happens with the oil pastels. Think about the use of colour from the video.  Using the video technique – ask the chn to arrange the objects, sketch in pencil and then add the colour, ensuring that the colours are similar to the video.

In Geography we will explore the difference in climate between Boston USA and Boston UK, using data presented as graphs. Please use the video in the Video Resource Centre, this explains how to read graphs in case you have forgotten!
