UKS2 Class 5 and Class 6

‘Together we learn, believe and achieve’

Home learning

This is where you will be able to find your learning activities for each day as of Monday. Our timetable will be as close to our one at school as possible (so you will be doing the same subjects on the same days you would at school). Most of the instructions will be on this page but sometimes there might be documents to look at as well. These will be uploaded here for you too. You will do the work in the exercise books that you have taken home - remember to maintain the standards you would in your books in school. 

             Each day there will be a new set of lessons for you - these will be at the top of the list but we will also leave the previous days on in case you need to go back for anything. We will post answers when we can too, so please use these to check how you are getting on. 

             If you have any questions or you want to speak to me about anything to do with your learning then please do email me. I will check my emails every day (although the time might not be the same each day).

AoW: 21.7.20: Celebrate our friends

Today is the last day of term and we would normally be saying goodbye to our year 6 leavers and any other children or staff leaving our school.

We wish them all the very best in their new adventure and know that they will take with them the strength of our school values and the love of the whole Chevening family to wherever their adventure leads.

 

Take a moment to celebrate the gifts that they have given to us and to our school.

Dear Lord,

Please give our treasured friends

Love and blessings without end.

Bring contentment in their lives

 Comfort them in times of strife

Always keep them safe, secure;

Let their path to you be sure.

Lord I pray my friends will be

Close to you eternally.

Amen

(Adapted from a prayer by Joanna Fuchs)

 

Maths:

First make sure you have marked and corrected your work from earlier in the week. The answers here... https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/maths-answers/

 

UKS2 Maths:
Now you have had a go at the Summer Maths Challenge – have a try at another example of your own choosing. Sometimes you need to be able to think around a solution to a problem first and then check if you are correct. Just like this one…


Have a look through the book and pick something to tackle or have a go at the one I have picked above.

You can see the KS collection here.
Here is the Y5 book
Here is the Y6 book

 

Y5 PSHE 1: 

Make a start on your project for Mrs Edwards.
You should have received the details via email.
J

 

Y6 PSHE 1:  - This is an activity I have adapted from the one I gave to my new class.
Over the summer you may have time to think a little about all the things that have happened in the last few months. Many people have had very difficult times but among those there may have also been some things that you have enjoyed. It’s quite normal to feel both. For example, you may have been frustrated about not being able to see your friends yet; but you may have enjoyed having more time with your family. Similarly, there would have been good things and difficult things about working at home. Things like the Chevening Book were amazing! Thank you if you contributed to it.

 

It may be helpful to do a mini-project over the summer holiday before going to your secondary school.  They may have already set one. If they have, you could start on that now. If they haven’t…

 

It might be good to think about:

What went well in home learning

What didn't go so well and was difficult in home learning

The saddest memory of Lockdown and the summer holiday

The happiest memory of Lockdown and the summer holiday

Which subjects and activities you enjoy the most
Which subjects you find the biggest challenge
If there is anything you are nervous about for September

What are you looking forward to most in September.

These are some of the things that may help if you are asked to do a summer project by your new school.

There are lots of different ways to tackle this and explore your responses.
You could make a drawing, compose some lyrics to a song, make a sculpture, design a T-shirt, make a model, write a story, write a diary, make up a dance! It’s up to you!

 

DT1 / Maths:

Get out some of your favourite games (physical games not computer games) that have an aspect of maths in them. What maths skills and knowledge do they use? How could you modify your game to develop the maths aspect further? Are there any strategies you haven’t been using?

 

Play the game if someone is free to play with you. Now try to modify the game’s rules (improving the strategy and maths). Does it make a positive difference?

 

 

DT2 / PSHE 2: 

Sometimes you can adapt a game that already exists and put it into a new context. On a very simple level, you can have different pieces in chess – such as a Star Wars set or a Simpsons set (but nothing else changes). However, you can make a 3D chess game or a game that has more knights, or chess with 4 players – one on each side of the board!
 

With Monopoly you can get so many different types of boards. I made a Harry Potter one for my girls and together we made a Qureshi-opoly  game too where the board represented all the important places we had lived in and been to.


Here’s an example that may be good to use to bring your year to a close…
Have a go at making some ‘Chance’ cards to go along with a Cheveningopoly Game!

 

Each card should mention something that you remember about being at Chevening school. Some may be really good things where the card will say something like ‘You win district sports. Collect £10’ and sometimes you may remember things that weren’t so great such as ‘A thunder storm started when we were in the swimming pool and we all had to get out. Pay £20.’ See how many of your memories you can put on the cards. Then you could have a go at playing the game! Who will win control of Chevening?

 

 

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to punctuate direct speech accurately.)   

Now that you have seen how we have linked the SPaG Quizzes to our learning, have a go at thinking about what you find most challenging and have a go at finding a good quiz from the set to see what you can learn, and how well you can do.

Finally – You made it!      J

Monday 20th July 2020 - UKS2

Good morning Y5 & Y6. Happy Monday.
You have nearly made it to the holidays! J

Don’t forget your daily mile or Joe Wicks Workout.
Here’s the one from last Wednesday… https://youtu.be/vGdpXUKoWlQ  

UKS2 Reading

Refresh yourself about the ‘Love That Dog’ book and then read the new extract  as well as mark Friday’s questions. You can hear the book read here at the bottom of the page.... https://nadeemqureshi.wixsite.com/y5-space-museum/copy-of-cosmic

 

 Today the questions are below on this page…

UKS2 – English:    

(LI: Be able to analyse the development of a character and find relevant passages to quote.)   

Have a think about Jack’s development as someone who begins to appreciate poetry and then becomes a poet himself. Make Notes and try to reference quotes.

 

Find examples in the text of Jack’s:

Increasing Confidence in Himself

Growing Enthusiasm for Poetry

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(LI: Be able to analyse the development of a theme and find relevant passages to quote.)   

Have a think about how the book shows the development of themes and ideas in the text.
Notes and try to reference quotes.

 

Themes Developed in the Book:

Friendship

Loss and Grief

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poetry

Self-Belief /Self Confidence

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art:     
(LI: Be able to understand the use of symbolism in art.)

Did you spot the reference to Chevening in The Singh Twins’ picture that was featured on television?

Mark the answers to the work from last week using the file…  Singh Twins Answers

 

Over several days the Singh Twins explained exactly what each element in the picture was meant to represent. This approach to art goes a long way back in history to when portraits were often full of symbolism. In this case the work is also political. The people who commissioned portraits in the past often wanted to show something of their history and status in pictures. Have a look at this Picture called The Ambassadors by Hans Holbein the Younger. Can you find out what the symbols represent?


Click on the link to see what you can find out.
The website shows you lots of detail and clues.

 

 

Buddy Books:

If you haven’t finished your buddy book please continue working on it and email it in as soon as possible. You can see our finished examples here.

The original instructions and video clip to help…https://youtu.be/PwlcySra-d8

(About 60 mins in your yellow book or in Word.)

AoW: 20.7.20: Our school values

As we reach the last but one day of term, think about our school values and the strength that they have given us while we have all been in lockdown.

Can you think of each in turn and how they have helped you while you have been at home or in one of our groups at school?

Faith, love, perseverance, courage, honesty, respect, forgiveness, compassion.

All of these values have helped to sustain us.

Can you write a prayer that celebrates our school values?

 

Maths:

First make sure you have marked and corrected your work from earlier in the week. The answers here... https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/maths-answers/

 

UKS2 Maths:
To help you to keep your brain ticking over during the holidays we have things like the Summer Reading Challenge but also now the Summer Maths Challenge too.
Download the Maths Summer Challenge Books from our website. You can see the KS collection here.
Have a look through and pick an investigation to have a go at. First is an example from the Y5 book about pocket money. The following picture is from the Y6 book about designing a garden. Please have a try at one so that you know how to use the book. Let me know if you have any problems and I will try to help.

Like the Summer Reading Challenge – can you solve at least one a week through summer to get your certificate?  

 

UKS2 AoW / RE:

Now that we are near the end of term there may be some things that you would like to continue over the summer. I know that in the holidays I miss going to Act of Worship with you all in the hall. There are some helpful resources to look at on the website that could help. For example, some are called ‘devotionals’ which are a bit like a study of a small section of the Bible with some ideas to consider. There are lots of different types. This is one example meant for children…  https://www.truthforkids.com/devotional

If you are not religious you still may find it interesting to see how some Christians may interpret parts of the Bible and find out some things about the period in history.  

 

French:

Remember that you can continue with your Duolingo French lessons through the summer and you can even add a new language too. We have one person learning Spanish and another learning Italian. (I am thinking of improving my Dutch.) Please spend about 30 mins on your French today.

 
Well done to those who have earned more than 100 XP points. 
You can have 1 Merit Point for each full 100 points earned. Eg 367XP would be 3 MPs.

(Please spend about 30 mins.)

 

PSHE/Science:

Remember to stay sun-safe over the summer.
Do some research in the Brainiac Room first and perhaps make a poster about something you have found out.
Then have a go at the Millionaire Sun-safe Quiz.
Can you beat me and get to 1,000,000?

Maths - TTRS: 

Please have a look at your heatmap and check which multiplication facts are causing a challenge. Represent the facts in two different ways (perhaps using pictures or by linking it to a fact you know well) and attempt to answer the target questions more accurately and faster.  

 

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to punctuate direct speech accurately.)   

Can you spot which rules for direct speech have been broken in the quiz?
I have put the rules here to help…

  • Rule 1 - Direct speech must be enclosed in inverted commas, e.g. He said, "It's hot in here."
  • Rule 2 - Start a new paragraph whenever you change speakers in a dialogue.
     
  • Rule 3 - Enclose a comma, full stop, question mark, or exclamation mark at the end of the direct speech INSIDE the closing inverted comma(s), e.g. "Do I know you?" he asked.Read More
     
  • Rule 4 - Place a comma BEFORE the first inverted comma(s) to introduce the direct speech if the direct speech comes after a named speaker, e.g. She said, "I like strawberries."
     
  • Rule 5 - If the direct speech is split up by a named speaker: put a comma, question mark or exclamation mark to end the first part and a full stop or another comma before the inverted comma(s) of the second part, e.g. "You’re very knowledgeable," he said. "It's a pleasure to listen to you." "Now I come to think of it," he said, "I didn’t see him yesterday."

Week Beginning 13th July 2020

Good morning Y5 & Y6. Happy Friday. You nearly made it to the weekend! J

UKS2 Reading

Refresh yourself about the ‘Love That Dog’ book and then read the new extract  as well as mark Thursday’s questions. Answer the questions about Jack’s response. 



UKS2 – Speaking and Listening / Art:   

(LI: Be able to debate an issue confidently from a well-researched point of view.)   

In a lot of our work we have been trying to analyse why things are the way they are. This is a subject that is open to a lot of different interpretations and controversy and so it is good to gather opinions and thoughts about it before voicing an opinion.

 

Did you spot that there was a lot or argument about both the Banksy piece and the sculpture on the news yesterday. The sculpture has already been removed and the Banksy has been washed off. (The original reports … https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/53408650
and… https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-53415832) and… https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-53423415 )

 

Thanks to Sophia for looking at this question

She found this interesting piece of digital art while answering this question and clicking on the link in the question.

 

Thanks to Tristan for sending in this debate that he and his dad had about the questions in the file below. Have a look at their thoughts. Do you agree with either of them or do you have a different ideas about the questions and responses? I have added some extra questions that came into my head while reading what they had said.

OK – Now to add an extra dimension!

Can art be political? Is it allowed to be offensive?
Are people free to express themselves through art however they choose?

This piece of artwork by the Singh Sisters is absolutely crammed with symbolism. There is a connection to us that only the ‘eagle-eyed’ will spot! It makes a strong statement but has so many hidden messages expressing an opinion. Have a go at the sheet trying to solve the puzzle. Some people would be offended by it, some won’t notice, some would consider it highly political and others would say it’s an opinion expressed through art. What do you think?

 

Open the file below and try to solve the puzzle of this piece of art.

Add to your notes from yesterday and if someone is free, have a discussion sometime between now and Monday with them about your ideas.

Buddy Books:

If you haven’t finished your buddy book please continue working on it and email it in as soon as possible. You can see our finished examples here.

The original instructions and video clip to help…https://youtu.be/PwlcySra-d8

(About 60 mins in your yellow book or in Word.)

 

 

Reading Together Day:
Did you read to someone yesterday or take part in any of the activities on the website? If not, have a go at listening to one of the Buddy Books that we have from Y5 and Y6 on our Earth page of the Space Museum website. Can you tell who is reading each story? https://nadeemqureshi.wixsite.com/y5-space-museum/copy-of-cosmic

 

Or have a go at listening to some parts of ‘Love That Dog’. I have tried to imagine how the poems should be read but perhaps you can do a better job or offer an alternative version and send it in? Both can be found on the same page of the website. The Spoken Buddy Books are near the top and middle on the left and Love That Dog is at the bottom.

 

AoW: 17.7.20: Celebrate your ability to endure

 

We are nearly at the end of our rainbow of celebration. We are looking today at indigo and violet.

 

This week collect as many things as you can around home – or your space at school that are INDIGO AND VIOLET.

 

Why should we be grateful for these things?

Are we thankful enough for all the things that God has given us?

As we reach the end of term 6, why not make your prayer one of thankfulness that we have kept calm and carried on.

Write a prayer to accompany the indigo and violet of your prayer rainbow.

 

Why not take a photo of your indigo and violet things or your prayer, if you do, please share it with us. Send it to:

lmclean@chevening.kent.sch.uk and we can create our own rainbow prayer through photos.

 

 

UKS2 PSHE:

I hope you found the Cribs transition videos and activities useful. Perhaps you did, perhaps you didn’t, perhaps they will become useful in the future. They would really like to hear your thoughts about it. Have a good think about the videos and tasks (as we have been learning how to do) and please give some feedback via this link. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc-IIBYufxzGWTuI9uClEwUUqj79WKFr_7y8FL94eQ6qTaxNA/viewform Don’t give out any details about yourself except for the school name. It is an anonymous form. (You have to click the submit button when you have finished for your answers to be counted.)

We can be honest in order to help them improve the videos and resources but we need to do it in a polite and respectful way. You can be as critical as you like as long as we find a way to also be thankful and help them to make them even better for the next people who use the tasks. It is a charity and Mrs Jones who used to be our headteacher when you were in the infants is also involved with helping them.

UKS2 Maths:

Well done to James D who got to level 12 in the ducking and diving factors game!

 

Please have a go at the Remainders Game. Can you get more than 9 points?

 

 

UKS2 Computing:

For those of you who have made your buddy books and have sent them in already, did you know that it is possible to turn them into real books such as the one that Tristan and Adam have made using a publishing website. Have a look at this guide that is similar to the digital book guide…

 

https://youtu.be/T9tJbnYHaAA

 

You may like to ask your parents if you can have a go and the website also lets people sell the books they make. To make an account for the website you MUST be an adult but your parents might have a look at this with you if you are interested. It is the website that I used to publish the Chevening books. Perhaps you have already got a copy of the Chevening Book of Hope and Courage that was made using the website?

 

(Did you notice that Elsie’s family’s picture is used on one of the covers for the digital book and Flo’s picture is used as the cover on one of the other digital book covers?)

 

 

Your only task here is just to find out and listen how to do it. You don’t need to actually do anything. (Here are other books we have made... https://www.lulu.com/spotlight/Chevening

 

UKS2 RE:

What kind of qualities do we think a great leader should have?

Make a fast bullet point list of at least 10 things a great leader should be like.
How would you recognise a great leader if you came across one?
How would people in the future know whether a person really was a great leader or not?

 

Now have a look at the poem below…

 

 

Does the first part of the poem describe Jesus in the way that we might think about a great leader? Does the second? What do you think the poet is trying to say?
(It’s another anonymous poem although some people have attributed it to a specific person.)
Do you think you can lead people in the future?
How would you wish to do it?

 

UKS2 – SpaG:

Good morning Y5 & Y6. Happy Thursday. J  

UKS2 – Report Elements: 

(LI: Be able to understand a variety of features about a report.)   

In a lot of our reading work we have been trying to analyse why things are happening. This analytical style is sometimes suited to reports. Today and tomorrow we will consider a report about art since it is a subject that is open to a lot of different interpretations and controversy. Use this quiz to refresh yourself about the way some aspects of reports… https://www.educationquizzes.com/11-plus/english/writing-reports/
(About 15mins.)

 

 

UKS2 Writing / Art: 

(LI: Be able to organise notes for a balanced report, keeping track of sources and references.)

 

Banksy is back! Or is he?

 

There were two stories about art yesterday that made the news. One was about some graffiti that Banksy painted in some tube trains and stations. The other was a sculpture.

 

Make some notes about each story and try to organise your notes into possible paragraphs. For now, we are just trying to gather ideas. Try to consider all the aspects mentioned in the quiz you did earlier.

 

It may help to consider these questions before you research the clips…

 

  • Where should art be?
  • Who does public art belong to?
  • If it is illegal, is it still art?
  • Who owns public art?
  • Why are some artists ‘rebels’?
  • What do artists try to do? (What is the point of art?)
  • Can anything be art?
  • Who decides if art is valuable?
  • Should art be permanent, temporary or doesn’t it matter?
  • Does art have to include lots of skill?
  • Does art have to take lots of time?
  • Does it matter whether we know who the artist is?
  • Can art be anonymous? Should it be signed? Does it make a difference?
  • Is digital art still art?   What if it is made by a computer?

 

Here are the two stories to research. Think about the answers to some of the questions and make notes so that you can use them later. Write down where you found your information.

Newsround report found by Mrs Robinson… https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/53408650
Here’s another… https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-53415832

Here’s a fabulous picture by Jemima. Is Jemima Banksy?


(Here’s an interesting outcome when one was sold at auction for over a million… https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-45770028 )

 

Here’s the other story… https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/53414543
But there’s more to it… https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-53423415

 

 

Here’s a good point the Sam makes about one of the pictures from the galleries we looked at yesterday that is to do with our time in lockdown.

 

“Sam says… “I chose this one because it’s like we have changed role because we are getting controlled instead of the animals…” 

 

It’s an interesting point. Are there any thoughts you can use from your work yesterday to do with the questions today? (Don’t forget to write your source or reference.) I have left the links just before the checklist in case you haven’t had time to do it yet.

Today is ‘Reading Together Day’ where people are encouraged to recognise the importance of reading out loud together. I love listening to the Buddy Books that we have from Y5 and Y6 on our Earth page of the Space Museum website. Why not have a listen to a couple? Can you tell who is reading each story? https://nadeemqureshi.wixsite.com/y5-space-museum/copy-of-cosmic

 

I have also decided to read the parts of ‘Love That Dog’ that we have covered so far for you and the new bits. I have tried to imagine how the poems should be read but perhaps you can do a better job or offer an alternative version and send it in? Both can be found on the same page of the website. The Spoken Buddy Books are near the top and middle on the left and Love That Dog is at the bottom. You can find out more about the day and the events here… https://readingagency.org.uk/news/media/reading-together-day-schedule---highlights-announced.html

AoW: 16.7.20: Small but strong

Romans 15: 4:  For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.

The animal that lives in this shell is one of the strongest animals on the earth. How do you think that it manages to stay on the rock when the sea crashes over it?

 

The answer is that it has a ring of teeth around the edge that bite into the rock to hold it in place.

God has given us skills to be able to help us when we are finding times difficult. What skills do you think we have been given to help us stay strong?

 

Draw a limpet shell and write on it the skills that you have to help you be strong.

 

You may like to say this prayer:

 My prayer to you, my Lord;

Give me the strength to show love in all I do;

Give me the strength never to help those less fortunate than me;

Give me the wisdom to look beyond daily problems;

Give me the strength to do you will with love and compassion.

UKS2 Computing:

For those of you who have made your buddy books and have sent them in already, did you know that you can view your book on many devices already as we have saved them as PDF files here?
They can be seen on ipads, kindles and many phones. However, it is possible to save them as special digital book files too. Have a look at this video that I have made which shows you how to publish a digital book using a publishing website.

 

https://youtu.be/T9tJbnYHaAA

 

It’s part of our understanding of computing. You may like to ask your parents if you can have a go and the website also lets people to sell the books they make. To make an account for the website you MUST be an adult but your parents might have a look at this with you if you are interested. It is the website that I used to publish the Chevening books.

 

Your only task here is just to find out and listen how to do it. You don’t need to actually do anything. (Here are other books we have made... https://www.lulu.com/spotlight/Chevening

AOW: 15.7.20: Who helps us to endure?

Fishing at sea is considered to be one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and those who are fishermen have to have great endurance.

Why do you think this is?

Many of Jesus’ disciples were fishermen and knew about the need to endure. Jesus needed those around him who were able to help him to complete his work by watching and praying with him.

 

They were able to endure dangerous working conditions. Do you think this helped them to endure the dangers that they had to face by following Jesus.

 

What values do you think they had?

What values would you want in a friend to help you through the difficult times?

It may help to think about our school values – have they helped you to endure the difficult times that we have lived in recently? Have your friends helped you?

 

Why not say a prayer of thankfulness for those who have helped you to keep going while you listen to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6rP-YP4c5I

UKS2 Reading

Refresh yourself about the ‘Love That Dog’ book and then read the new extract on Jan 17th  as well as mark Monday’s questions.
Answer the questions about Jack’s response. 

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to understand how paragraphs can be opened or linked to others.)   

This SPaG activity should help you with the writing task below. It is useful when the opening of a paragraph helps the reader to understand what is coming up and being discussed. The links between paragraphs help the reader to understand how different concepts are linked together or how one idea relates to another…  

https://www.educationquizzes.com/11-plus/english/paragraphing/  
(About 15mins.)

 

UKS2 Writing / History: 

(LI: Be able to expand on ideas to develop them further in sections. C – Be able to link paragraphs together.)

Re-read your work from yesterday.

There was a very famous quote from Churchill about the Battle of Britain.

Here is a list of 20 famous Churchill quotes – which one refers to the Battle of Britain? https://www.historyhit.com/key-quotes-by-winston-churchill-in-world-war-two/  

 

TOC 1) Research which one was about the Battle of Britain and include it in your text please.

Sometimes – the work of a small number of people is very important but doesn’t always get noticed. Just like the Londoner Tommy Flowers (who helped to break a code that was far harder than the Enigma code), there was a schoolgirl from North London who most people have never heard of but had an important role.

 

TOC 2) Listen to the story of Hazel Hill who helped design a crucial part of the Spitfire and Hurricane during World War 2. (She was 13 years old at the time.) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000kzx7

 

It is fascinating that Hazel and her dad did the work at home on the kitchen table (perhaps like you are right now!) and then had to persuade the important military commanders that she and her dad were right.

 

TOC 3) Look through your report and find the best place to add a paragraph about how sometimes a small number of people are very influential but may not be recognised. Use Hazel as an example.  

 

OC 4) Use Churchill’s quote.

 

C 5) Add how it may feel to do important work that may not be recognised. (How does this link to the Acts of Worship a few weeks ago?)

 

C 6) Find a way to link the previous and following paragraphs to the new one so that there is a smooth transition through your piece.  

 

If you haven’t finished your buddy book please continue working on it and email it in as soon as possible. You can see our finished examples here.

AoW: 14.7.20 – Endurance

WHO HELPS US TO ENDURE?

 

It is really important that we can turn to someone who understands how we might feel when we are having to endure tough times.

 

Can you remember some of the things that Christ had to endure?
Here are some pictures by a famous artist called Stanley Spencer of Jesus in the wilderness.

 

 

I wonder what it must have been like in the wilderness.

 

Can you remember how many days Jesus was there?

 

What other things may Jesus have had to endure?

 

Many Christians turn to Christ in prayer to help them through difficult times, because they know He understands.

 

What do you think would have kept Christ strong when times were difficult?

 

In the song below Jordan (‘J Vessel’) sings about how great God is but also mentions trying to resist temptations of the modern world. See if you can spot that part in the song. https://youtu.be/M08pD_GJZJY


Which temptations do we have to endure sometimes?
Where do you think J Vessel gets his strength and inspiration from?


(Some other occasions mentioned in the Rochester notes where Jesus needed to show endurance: being criticised by others, being betrayed by his friend, people doubting him, calling him names, being crucified).

Y6 Maths (Y5 Optional):

Please mark your questions using the ‘check’ box on the website for yesterday’s work.

https://www.transum.org/Maths/Exercise/Timetables.asp?Level=3 

Then have a go at drawing a ‘Mystic Rose’.

 

To do this first draw a circle, then label the points from 1 to 12 as if you were drawing a clock.

Now join every point up with every other point using a ruler. (So 12 o’clock needs to join up with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… until you get to 11. Then start at 1 o’clock and join it up with 2, 3, 4, 5, 6… to 11. Then start at 2 and join up with 3, 4, 5, 6… to 11.)

Can you estimate how many lines it will take to join every point together with every other one?

 

You can investigate it further later using this website… https://nrich.maths.org/6703

 

What happens if you change to a different number of points on the circle?
Try it out.   

 

These also may make good ‘end papers’ for our Buddy Books.
If you make one that you like you could use it in your Buddy Book.

 

Sam and Aaron managed to get on the website leader board yesterday with a ranking of 22!
Can you beat them?

AoW: 13.7.20 – Endurance

GOD’S ENDURING LOVE

 

Psalm 118 ‘Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; His love endures forever’.

 

Why do you think this picture has an anchor for the verse in Hebrews?

  

 

Sometimes things can be so hard that it feels like we are in a storm. It is hard to keep afloat. What things have you had to cope with or endure over this period? What or who has helped you to stand firm?

 

On days like these, we just have to keep going despite not quite feeling ourselves. This is endurance.
What is another word in our Christian Values that is very similar? Are there others that link too?  

 

What is the job of an anchor? How strong do you think an anchor has to be?

This is like the love of God which is so strong we can trust in it, no matter how stormy life gets.
Who else is like an anchor in your life?

UKS2 Reading

Refresh yourself about the ‘Love That Dog’ book and then read the new extract on Nov 15th  as well as mark yesterday’s questions.
Answer the questions about Jack’s response. Notice how things are still slowly changing.

UKS2 Writing: 

(LI: Be able to write a text for a particular audience. In this example – a blurb.)

 

Look at ‘blurbs’ in children’s picture books.
 

Write a blurb for your buddy book.
Remember to make it interesting but don’t give too much away.

 

A blurb is different to a description of a book on a sales website because the description may also talk about how the book was made.

 

Read the description of the Chevening Book of Hope and Courage… https://www.lulu.com/en/gb/shop/chevening-st-botolphs-cep-school/chevening-together-reflections-of-hope-and-courage/paperback/product-2e27zv.html

 

Write a description about the Buddy books that we could put on the website if we decide to make our buddy books available through the same publisher.

 

Then if you haven’t finished, your buddy book please continue working on it and email it in as soon as possible. You can see our finished examples here.

AoW: 10.7.20 – Celebrate patience

When Noah saw the rainbow in the sky at the end of the story he must have felt as though his patience had been rewarded.

Genesis 9:17: So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.”

We are continuing to use the rainbow this week. Did you add thank you prayers to the rainbows on your windows?

This week collect as many things as you can around home – or your space at school that are BLUE.

Why should we be grateful for these things? Are we thankful enough for all the things that God has given us?

Write a prayer to accompany the BLUE of your prayer rainbow.

Why not take a photo of your orange things or your prayer, if you do, please share it with us. Send it to:

lmclean@chevening.kent.sch.uk and we can create our own rainbow prayer through photos.

 

As we reach the end of term 6, why not continue to gather thoughts about the rainbow colours. We have not yet covered INDIGO and VIOLET. It would be lovely to have these images to add to our school rainbow.

AoW: 9.7.20 – Patience with nature and the world

We have to wait for things to grow and be ready to harvest. We can only start to help our world one step at a time.

The more complicated the problem the more time and attention it requires before the right solution can be found.

Watch this clip of animals hunting for food, look at how patient they have to be – think about how patient the cameraman has to be to film them!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxYvbtE4Ybs 

We have to wait to see God’s kingdom in all its glory – have you planted any seeds lately? Did you have to wait for them to grow?

If you would like to try, use the instructions in this link to make a seed bomb.

https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/actions/how-make-seed-bomb

You will need to look after your seeds and look forward to when you will be able to enjoy the flowers that they create.

Take time today to look around you and give thanks for the beauty of the world that you see.

How far can you get? Click here.

Science 1 / Maths:

(LI: Be able to understand conditions for germination of fruit and vegetables from seedlings.)
(Be able to read and interpret tables.)

Have a look at the answers and mark your work.

Did anyone try using the excel formulas to make life easier?

 

See the attached table to mark your answers.

 

TOC 1) Calculate the range of temperatures each type of seed will germinate.  (Max – min)
TOC 2) Rank the vegetables from highest to lowest by giving 15 points to the best (largest range) down to 1 point

TOC 3) Rank your vegetables from highest germination percentage to lowest. Again, give a score of 15 points down to 1 point.

OC 4) Calculate the average temperature for the week using the forecast below:

 

 

OC 5) Convert the average temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit so you can use the table.

OC 6) Allocate points to the vegetables that have their optimal temperature closest to the average temperature. The top 5 above and the top five below.

TOC 7) Total the points and then rank the vegetables with the highest points first.

TOC 8) How many of the vegetables in your top 5 are in the top ten of your new list?

 

C 9) Do you think that each factor we scored has the same importance or do you think some are more important than others?  I think it is possible to argue that some things are more important than others and so should be weighted differently. For example, it doesn’t matter how good the % germination is if the range of temperatures is so small that you don’t get the right conditions to grow them.

TOC 10) What else might you consider when deciding which vegetables would be best to plant?

You may consider how popular they are to both people and ‘pests’.  How easy will it be to sell your produce? How easy will it be to avoid it being eaten by other creatures?

 

Science 2 / PSHE:

(LI: Be able to understand how some medicines are made and the potential dangers of medicines.)
Yesterday there was a report published about some medicines that had problems in the news. Do you think it is strange that medicines can sometimes be harmful? In fact, all medicines have the potential to be harmful if the person does not need them. They are only to be taken if a person is ill and the medicine is matched to the illness by someone with knowledge about it.

  
Make notes as you have a look at this information about medicines:

Have a look at the Bitesize videos… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zcys34j  

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrffr82/articles/zg982nb
There is also some information here… https://kidshealth.org/en/kids/kidmedic.html

 

Write a paragraph or make a poster explaining why medicines can be helpful but also why they can be harmful if not used correctly. (About 45 mins in yellow book or in Word.)

 

UKS2 Computing:
(LI: Be able to use video cameras effectively. Be able to understand focus, stability, lighting, sound requirements.)
Please continue with the Leavers’ video work.

Only one person has been able to send in an example of video so far.

 

You may need to remind yourself of the tips...

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to understand when capitals should be used.)   

When we write our ‘font pages’, titles, dedications and headings we have to be careful about how we use capitals. Have a go at the first set… https://www.educationquizzes.com/11-plus/english/capital-letters/
You can try 5 of the second set (unless your parents have subscribed in which case they will all be available). Here is the page for the second set… https://www.educationquizzes.com/11-plus/english/capital-letters2/

The original instructions and links from yesterday are below…

 

We are at the point that we can start putting the books together.

We will have a sheet to paste the pictures and words onto that is in 2 columns and is landscape direction (wide) so that it can be printed out as a book.  Here is a video explaining the process written below… https://youtu.be/PwlcySra-d8

 

You need to select a cover from the first set of pictures,

You need to select the sleeping, waking and then walking pictures and text from the second set.

You need to select the letter character pictures for half the name from the third set.

Then you need an environment picture from the fourth set.

Then the rest of the letter character pictures for the second half of the name from the third set.
Finally the ending of the story from the fifth set.

 

Then include your poems if they are working well. (If they are not, please adapt one of our examples to suit from the third set of character pictures.

 

Y6 – Since you have buddies allocated to you, please use the list attached to select the right pictures to include in your book. Please stick to the artists of the letters picked as I have tried to make sure that everyone’s work is represented somewhere. However, you can select whichever of the environments, pictures in the house, or on the path you like as we will use these more than once.

 

Y5 – Please use the list I made here which includes at least one of your pictures.

 

These are not going to be your buddies next year, they just match some of your letters sent in.

AoW: 8.7.20 – Patience with others

Proverbs 15:18: A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict,
    but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.

What do you think this means?

Has this happened to you at all? How did you resolve the situation?

We all have to recognise that everyone is different and we need to make allowances for others, giving time to people and walking at their pace.

It can be helpful to acknowledge the things that cause people to lack patience but also to remember the positive things that have happened.

Draw out three circles on a piece of paper – like a traffic light.

 In the top circle write something that you were unable to do because of the lockdown, something that made you feel disappointed.

In the middle circle, write or draw something that you are looking forward to doing when everyone is back at school and the lockdown is over.

In the bottom circle, write done something that you have enjoyed doing while you have been in lockdown.

You could write in the correct colours for the traffic light so you can see your response clearly.

You could use this as a basis for a teaspoon prayer – sorry, thank you, please.

Maths:

Y6 Maths (Y5 Optional):

 

Who can get the furthest with the Power-lines game? Y5 or Y6? 

Send me a screenshot of your best level! https://primarygames.co.uk/pg2/powerlines/powerlines1.html

 

 

Science / Maths:

(LI: Be able to understand conditions for germination of fruit and vegetables from seedlings.)
(Be able to read and interpret tables.)

How did you do yesterday with this task?

Today we will try to investigate it methodically to see if we come to different conclusions.
(The original questions are below but with new versions to help us structure our thinking.)

Look up the definition of germination.  In the table below we can see the maximum and minimum temperatures needed for a seed to germinate. (Opt stands for ‘optimal’ which is like saying the best temperature in this instance.) Percentage germination means the amount (percent) that are likely to germinate out of those planted. So 55% minimum germination of carrot seeds means that if 100 seeds are planted at least 55 should grow into seedlings.  

 

You will need to convert degrees F to degrees C.

If you were trying to produce the best yield in this country during summer and could only plant 5 types of seed. Which would you pick and why?

TOC 1) Calculate the range of temperatures each type of seed will germinate.  (Max – min)
Use the table attached to record your answers.

 

TOC 2) Rank the vegetables from highest to lowest by giving 15 points to the best (largest range) down to 1 point

 

TOC 3) Rank your vegetables from highest germination percentage to lowest. Again, give a score of 15 points down to 1 point.

 

OC 4) Calculate the average temperature for the week using the forecast below:

OC 5) Convert the average temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit so you can use the table.

 

OC 6) Allocate points to the vegetables that have their optimal temperature closest to the average temperature. The top 5 above and the top five below.

 

TOC 7) Total the points and then rank the vegetables with the highest points first.

 

TOC 8) How many of the vegetables in your top 5 are in the top ten of your new list?

 

C 9) Do you think that each factor we scored has the same importance or do you think some are more important than others?

 

TOC 10) What else might you consider when deciding which vegetables would be best to plant?

 

UKS2 Computing:
(LI: Be able to use video cameras effectively. Be able to understand focus, stability, lighting, sound requirements.)

Continue with the Leavers’ video work.

You may need to remind yourself of the tips...

  1. Lipsync video - https://youtu.be/65ljylO2gcA
  2. The Future - https://youtu.be/NDCmWEP3Zdk
  3. Chevening Memories - https://youtu.be/zmom5nf4NUI
  4. Tips for recording video - https://youtu.be/uqs5pwih-7M

 

Y5 – Have a look at the video of how you could record your voice reading the buddy book while seeing the pages. You can see the video here.    

 

Then you can look at -
Aaron’s finished example here on the Y5 Space Museum Earth Page.

 

We are staying out of the picture but hopefully your voice will be on there clearly. Don’t worry if you don’t have the equipment available. Instead you could just try recording your voice reading the book instead – without the pictures. Most computers and phones have a voice recorder setting.

 

Y6 –If you have got permission from your parents please finish your final versions for the 3 aspects – 1) lip sync, 2) ambition for the future, 3) Chevening memories (3 of them) and email them.  (About 60 mins.)

 

UKS2 PSHE:

Have a look back at your coloured Post-It notes from last week about things that someone may see as being different about next year.

https://youtu.be/0CiGsJqcF24

 

Have a look at the new video… https://youtu.be/zqx8JObG2j8

https://youtu.be/zqx8JObG2j8

Pick a selection of those changes you thought of to use on the lines below. Then have a think about where you would place the Post-It on that line. Would it be closer to the ‘scared, worried, anxious, nervous’ side of the line or closer to the ‘excited, happy, calm, confident’ side of the line?

If you have some aspects that are near to the ‘nervous…’ side then it would be a good idea to chat to someone about it. You can email or talk to a member of staff or chat to your parents or another adult family member. It may be that we can help you to understand more about what is making you uneasy.

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to patterns in the spelling of words. Be able to recognise word play.)   

A bit of fun today. Have a go at this spelling anagram game. What’s the maximum score you can get? I got 900 in the first game. Send me a screenshot if you can do even better. http://www.uclick.com/client/mwb/tmjkf/

UKS2 Writing 1 / Computing:

(LI: Be able to construct a rhyming text that has a strong repeating pattern for a particular audience.) (LI: Be able to use a variety of tools to format digital books.)

 

We are at the point that we can start putting the books together.

 

We will have a sheet to paste the pictures and words onto that is in 2 columns and is landscape direction (wide) so that it can be printed out as a book.  Here is a video explaining the process written below… https://youtu.be/PwlcySra-d8

 

You need to select a cover from the first set of pictures,

You need to select the sleeping, waking and then walking pictures and text from the second set.

You need to select the letter character pictures for half the name from the third set.

Then you need an environment picture from the fourth set.

Then the rest of the letter character pictures for the second half of the name from the third set.
Finally the ending of the story from the fifth set.

 

Then include your poems if they are working well. (If they are not, please adapt one of our examples to suit from the third set of character pictures.

 

Y6 – Since you have buddies allocated to you, please use the list attached to select the right pictures to include in your book. Please stick to the artists of the letters picked as I have tried to make sure that everyone’s work is represented somewhere. However, you can select whichever of the environments, pictures in the house, or on the path you like as we will use these more than once.

 

Y5 – Please use the list I made here which includes at least one of your pictures.

 

 

UKS2 Writing 2:

Check your poetry work from yesterday against the answers below:

 

-       /     -        /           -      /       -       / 

My mother said to do my chores,

-   /   -   /       -   /   -   /

to dust the shelves and mop the floors,

-    /    -   /     -  /     -    /

and wipe the walls and wind the clocks, 

-    /     -    /  -    /   -  /

and scoop the kitty's litter box.

 

 

TOC 5) Is the pattern the same for each line in the stanza? Yes – in this case it is.

 

C 8) Do you think all of the lines have to follow the same pattern? No. Why?  There are different types of poetry which make use of different rhythms. The example above is a very simple example designed to help you understand stressed (/) and unstressed (-) syllables and ‘feet’ in poems.
 

AoW: 7.7.20 – Patience with ourselves

What do you think when you join the end of a long queue? What about when you are having to wait a long time to ask a question or do something that you want to do?

How long do you have to wait? 1 minute? 1 day? 1 week? 1 month?

Patience with ourselves is all about not giving up, coping with temper and recognising our strengths and weaknesses. We need to recognise that we all make mistakes and not be too hard on ourselves.

Remind yourself of the story of Noah – what made him most frustrated?

If you had been in the ark, what would have made you feel impatient? Can you choose to feel patient?

How do you cope when you need to wait?

Paul wrote in Colossians 3:12:

‘Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience’

Maybe patience is not something we have to feel, but something that we can choose to put on like clothes.

If it was an item of clothing, what do you think it would look like? Would it have buttons? Laces?

If today you find yourself in a situation where you have to wait – for whatever reason, try to clothe yourself with patience, keep it on all day and see how it makes you feel.

 

Maths:

First make sure you have marked and corrected your work from earlier in the week. The answers here... https://www.chevening.kent.sch.uk/maths-answers/

 

Y5 (Y6 Optional revision.)
Chapter 12 Perimeter

MNP Textbook 5B – Chapter 12 Perimeter Lesson 1 starting at p194,

followed by Workbook 5B Chapter 12 Worksheet 1 p131   (About 60 mins.)

 

 

Y6 Maths (Y5 Optional):

Reasoning Mind Workout that makes use of pattern in number.  Mark your answers please…

TOC 1) Calculate the total number of candles for the whole of his life.  68 years is 2278 candles.
 

TOC 2) How many will it increase by when he reaches 75? 2850 – 2278 = 504

 

OC 3) Describe the pattern of how the number increases each year. You add the current age onto the previous total each year.
 

C 4) Try to describe the case for any year using algebra.  If n= the year then T for total of candles…

T = n+(n-1)+(n-2)+(n-3)… until n=1    That can be shown as  T = n(n+1)/2

 

C5) Describe what this relationship would look like as a graph. It is a curve that steppens as it continues.

It’s a type of sqaured or you might compare it to a quadratic graph.

C6) Can you make up your own problem that would end up with a similar pattern of numbers and could use the same formula you came up with? We have seen this formula before in some other problems – can you remember which?

 

Have a go at the Power-lines game. How far can you get? https://primarygames.co.uk/pg2/powerlines/powerlines1.html

Science / Maths:

(LI: Be able to understand conditions for germination of fruit and vegetables from seedlings.)
(Be able to read and interpret tables.)

 

Look up the definition of germination.  In the table below we can see the maximum and minimum temperatures needed for a seed to germinate. (Opt stands for ‘optimal’ which is like saying the best temperature in this instance.) Percentage germination means the amount (percent) that are likely to germinate out of those planted. So 55% minimum germination of carrot seeds means that if 100 seeds are planted at least 55 should grow into seedlings.   

 

You will need to convert degrees F to degrees C using this sheet or the table below the seeds information.

If you were trying to produce the best yield in this country during summer and could only plant 5 types of seed. Which would you pick and why?

UKS2 PSHE / Speaking and Listening: Chevening Memories / Ambitions for future

Memories:
Y6 Think back to all that has happened since you first joined school.
Use this sheet to help you consider what happened in different year groups. Use your plan to practise saying your 3 memories (and have a go at filming them).  

 

Y5 –Use the table you made yesterday to have a go at saying your memories in an engaging way. You may need to make notes or a script to help you.

(About 30 mins.)

UKS2 Computing:
(LI: Be able to use video cameras effectively. Be able to understand focus, stability, lighting, sound requirements.)

Continue with the Leavers’ video work.

You may need to remind yourself of the tips...

  1. Lipsync video - https://youtu.be/65ljylO2gcA
  2. The Future - https://youtu.be/NDCmWEP3Zdk
  3. Chevening Memories - https://youtu.be/zmom5nf4NUI
  4. Tips for recording video - https://youtu.be/uqs5pwih-7M

 

Y5 – When you have finished your buddy book we will see whether we can film the pages as you read them. We are staying out of the picture but hopefully your voice will be on there clearly. You can either print out the book or use a device to show it on the screen while you use a different device to record it. Don’t worry if you don’t have the equipment available. Instead you could just try recording your voice reading the book instead – without the pictures. Most computers and phones have a voice recorder setting.

 

Y6 –If you have got permission from your parents and you have made a practise video then start your real versions for the 3 aspects – 1) lip sync, 2) ambition for the future, 3) Chevening memories (3 of them). 

(About 60 mins.)

French:

Continue with your Duolingo French lessons
Well done to those who have earned more than 100 XP points. 
You can have 1 Merit Point for each full 100 points earned. Eg 367XP would be 3 MPs.

(Please spend about 30 mins.)

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to spot rhyming words. Be able to use spelling patterns.)   

If you found the spelling work tricky yesterday, here is some extra help from Lily. Have a go at learning the different spelling endings for these words below.

UKS2 Reading/Writing Part 1:

(LQ: Be able to construct a rhyming text that has a strong repeating pattern for a particular audience.

Understand the terms, rhythm, meter, syllable and scanning.)

 

We are closer to finishing the books now but need to be careful about rhythm and meter in our stanzas.

 

TOC 1) Read the helpful information in the link that follows:
Part 1:  
https://www.poetry4kids.com/lessons/rhythm-in-poetry-the-basics/
OC 2) Continue to read the helpful information in the link that follows:

Part 2: https://www.poetry4kids.com/lessons/rhythm-in-poetry-you-can-scan-man/

 

TOC 3) Then try to write a definition for the terms rhythm, meter, syllable and scanning.

TOC 4) Have a go at marking the stressed syllables with a slash / and the unstressed syllables with a dash – for the stanza below.

-       /     -        /           -      /       -       / 

My mother said to do my chores,

to dust the shelves and mop the floors,

and wipe the walls and wind the clocks, 

and scoop the kitty's litter box.

 

TOC 5) Is the pattern the same for each line in the stanza?

TOC 6) Now have a go at doing the same for the rhyming lines of your stanza. (If the pattern is different, try to replace some of the words to make it work.

 

OC 7) Now have a go at the non-rhyming lines and do the same as Q6.

 

C 8) Do you think all of the lines have to follow the same pattern? Why?  
(About 60 mins in yellow book or in Word.)

 

AoW: 6.7.20 – Patience with circumstances

Something worthwhile can take a long time to create, to sort, to learn. Instant action or understanding is not the answer to everything and it can be hard to wait. – Those few days before you birthday seem to pass so slowly don’t they?

Sometimes the effect that we want to achieve takes a long time to make – the episodes of Wallace and Gromit took six weeks to film every minute! This clip shows you why and how.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3CEE9xKKZc

In the Bible, Noah had to be patient. He had trusted in God and built the ark, gathering two animals of each kind and all of his family. He trusted God’s plan but he had to trust the timing of that plan even when he couldn’t understand how it would work out.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCLRcA9mlQE You can watch the story here or read it in Genesis 8 6-13

How patient do you think Noah had to be?

Could you think of a prayer about patience in any situation? Something that could help you when you feel you are losing or lacking in patience?

Why not think of ways that you could try to be more patient as you listen to this song.

(About 60 mins.)



 

UKS2 RE:

(LI: How do the Abrahamic religions remember important events? What examples can we find?)  

 

In the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) it is important to remember lessons from the past and how God and His have acted.
TOC 1) Use one example of events from this list to explain the event and how it is remembered by Judaism, Christianity or Islam. You may have to do some research if you can’t remember.

Passover,
Crucifixion,
 The Last Supper
The Great Flood
Abraham (known as Ibrahim in Islam) and his original shrine to the One God as well as his meeting with the angel Gabriel.

 

C 2) Research and explain one example of your own that is not on the list.

Y5 – Please try to think of interesting memories from every year group and jot down brief notes to remind yourself of them all. Can you get a match between things that have ‘ahhh factor’, humour and poignant moments? Use the table to organise your thoughts.

 

Y6 – Try to write down notes for 3 memories. Don’t read from a script for you memory but do make sure you are clear what you are going to say.
The Future:
Write notes to help you explain what you would like to do in the future and why. Make a sheet of paper with a single word describing your ambition which can be easily seen in the video.

UKS2 Reading Part 1: Goldilocks - the #Cautionary Tale

Please read this story. It can help us get into the feel of rhythm and rhyme for own buddy books and also help us understand some things to be careful about when making our film! Goldilocks Link   (About 15 mins.)

 

UKS2 Writing:

(LQ: Be able to construct a rhyming text that has a strong repeating pattern for a particular audience.)

 

We still have many more poems to write to go with our buddy books.
As we said yesterday, the rhyming pattern is important. However, we also need the stanzas to have a good repeating rhythm. We need to pay attention to the length and stressed (and unstressed) syllables.
Have a look at this page to help you understand…

https://www.poetry4kids.com/lessons/rhythm-in-poetry-the-basics/


Remember, the format we need is…

One stanza of 4 lines explaining the problem the creature was having.
Then a second stanza of 4 lines explaining how or why the creature gives the child the letter.
In both stanzas it is the 2nd and 4th lines that rhyme.
The pattern is
A, B, C, B   then D, E, F, E

T – Please try 2 stanzas for another creature.

OK – Please try the same for two different creatures.
C – Please try to make as many pairs of stanzas as you can for the creatures you have sent in.

Look at these great examples sent in by the class for some inspiration…
 

Sophie’s Mouse Poem:
 

Along came a little mouse

Looking for some cheese.

‘Share mine,’ a little girl said.

The mouse exclaimed ‘Yes please!’

Thank you little girl.

I now feel so much better.

For a token of my thanks,

Please accept this letter.

 

Kiana’s Kingfisher Poem:

 

A kingfisher frolicked through

Eating a bag of sweets.

You silly bird, the girl said

That’s what humans eat!

Oh, said the kingfisher sadly,

It was nice to have a treat.

But take this letter from me,

While I clean my sticky beak.

 

Kiana’s Parrot Poem:


A parrot came limping past,

His expression dull and dry.

‘Silly parrot,’ said the girl

‘Birds don’t walk, they fly!’

‘Why, thank you,’ said the parrot,

‘My legs were beginning to tire.

But take this letter from me,

As your need is rather dire.’

 

 

 

 

Nolwenn’s Panda Poem:

 

A panda went climbing
Looking for something to eat
‘You silly panda,’ the girl said
‘Bamboo should be your treat.’

‘Why thank you little girl
I don’t need to climb a tree.
In reward for your help
Please accept this P.’

Nolwenn’s Hippo Poem:

 

Up next she found a hippo
As clean and as dry as can be.
‘What are you doing like this?
Don’t you swim in river and sea?’

You’re so right you mini person
I now feel so much better.
As a special reward
Here take this letter.

Flo’s Elephant Shrew Poem:

Next she saw an elephant shrew

Who cried out ‘’Please help me,

A scaly lizard is following

And wants me for his tea!’’

The girl chased away the lizard.

The shrew jumped with glee.

‘’How can I ever thank you?

I know, please take this E’’

 

 

You can look at more examples here.

AoW: 3.7.20 – Celebrate

Genesis 9:17: So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.”

We are continuing to use the rainbow this week. Did you add thank you prayers to the rainbows on your windows? 

This week collect as many things as you can around home – or your space at school that are GREEN.

Why should we be grateful for these things? Are we thankful enough for all the things that God has given us?

Write a prayer to accompany the green of your prayer rainbow.

Why not take a photo of your green things or your prayer, if you do, please share it with us. Send it to:

lmclean@chevening.kent.sch.uk and we can create our own rainbow prayer through photos.

UKS2 Music:

(LI: Be able to listen carefully to music and respond by repeating.)  

 

We are close to recording the lip sync for the Y6 Leavers’ video but we need to get our listening and repeating skills up to scratch.

UKS2 - Please have a go at Mrs Robinson’s lovely call and response work from Tuesday.

Here are her instructions…


Task 1 - Warm-up

We are going to play ‘copy me’: I have recorded an audio for this game.

(You can clap, sing , bang a drum or random household object)

 

I will play a rhythm and you must copy it back.

My own children are going to join in with you.

The file is below called 'Call and Response 1'. 

 

Task 2

For this next activity you will need a tuned instrument with the notes and A

We can use this online program Mrs Robinson found…

 https://www.imusic-school.com/en/tools/online-piano-keyboard/

Make sure you click the ‘English Notation’ button so it gives you the note names

Call and Response 1 Mrs R.mp3

Experiment playing both the notes D and A. How are they different?

 

Task 3: Now play the audio below.

I am going to play a pattern using these 2 notes and you can copy on your instruments. (Eva and Max are going to join in with you).  

 

In music, this is called call and response and Shankar uses it a lot in his symphony

Call and Response using a tuned instrument.mp3

 

Task 4:

Bronze (easy) Can you create a ‘call’ and ask a family member to respond’?

Silver (medium): Can you write your call and response out using musical notation

Gold challenge: Can you add some words?

There’s some blank manuscript paper attached if you need it.

 

 

Then Y6 please have a practise singing to High Hope again… High hopes

Call and Response 2 Mrs R.mp3

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to spot rhyming words.)   

 

This quiz about spelling patterns may well help us with the Buddy Book work. How well can you do in these two?… https://www.educationquizzes.com/11-plus/english/spelling-igh/

UKS2 Science / Geography / PSHE:

(LI: Understand cold water shock, water safety and the potential dangers of some open water sites.)  

Today Y5 have been learning about temperature in maths.
It has been quite worrying seeing the number of people coming to Chipstead Lake with swimming gear in the hot weather. There are a number of dangers that people may not be aware of and ‘cold water shock’ due to the temperature difference is one of them. Please research cold water shock and make a safety poster using the links below to help you.  

 

https://firstaidforlife.org.uk/cold-water-shock/

https://www.daera-ni.gov.uk/news/quarry-water-stone-cold-killer-stay-out-stay-alive

 

There are other dangers too. Research the dangers of swimming in lakes generally with websites such as this... https://waterpark.org/the-dangers-of-swimming-in-the-lakes/
https://www.lymmhigh.org.uk/2018/07/02/water-safety-the-dangers-of-cooling-off-in-open-water/


Chipstead Lake used to be a quarry and is far deeper than people realise, with very steep sides in places. Read this information about the quarry and try to write down what other dangers may occur due to its construction and use.

AoW: 2.7.20 – Humility about our place in God’s amazing world

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAGBqIA-fd4

Watch and enjoy this video clip about our amazing world.

Do you ever feel full of wonder about our amazing world? Look at the vast and beautiful world in which you live, how special and wonderful are you and yet so tiny! Enjoy the humility of looking outwards at the world with wonder and awe at the gift of all you see.

It is hard at the moment to think about what we can do to help and be part of our amazing world, but thinking of others in your close family and helping them, those who live nearby who are lonely and would appreciate a smile and wave through their window or a picture in your window for them to see. A phone call for those who live far away or a letter to a friend or loved one.

Why not choose something you can do – tiny little you, to show love to those around you either near or far.

UKS2 English:

(LQ: Be able to construct a rhyming text that scans well for a particular audience.)

 

The buddy books are getting really close now. We just need to add the rhyming verse for the text. Have a go at making sections for the creatures you have drawn. Use you poetry knowledge from the Highwayman and your rhyming couplets knowledge to help you from Shakespeare!  

 

Who thought we would be using classic fiction to help us with a modern text?

 

The format we need is…

 

One stanza of 4 lines explaining the problem the creature was having.
Then a second stanza of 4 lines explaining how or why the creature gives the child the letter.
In both stanzas it is the 2nd and 4th lines that rhyme.
The pattern is A,
B, C, B   then D, E, F, E

 

T – Please try 2 stanzas for one creature.

OK – Please try the same for two different creatures.
C – Please try to make as many pairs of stanzas as you can for the creatures you have sent in.

 

A bat appeared, bumping into things.

It gave her quite a fright.

You silly bat, the little girl said.

You’re meant to fly at night!

Why thank you little girl.

I am a night animal I see.

Just for your kindness,

Here why don’t you have this ‘B’?

 

 

Next he saw a dinosaur

Firece as fierce could be.

But the little boy plucked up courage

And said you don’t scare me!

You're the first that hasn’t run away.

You are brave, I can see.

Well here my little friend,

Why not take this special ‘D’?

 

Then he saw an emu,

Flapping its wings in despair.

But you are built for running, he said

Not flying in the air!

Why thank you said the emu.

I wondered why I was so tall.

Here, please have this ‘E’.

It’s really no trouble at all.

 

A sloth was waiting upside down

From the branch of a tree.

I need to take a nap right now

Please don’t bother me.

But before you go, a little gift

That’ll make you feel slightly better.

Here I have, just for you

A slippery little letter.

AoW: 1.7.20 – Humility about ourselves

Have you ever had times in your life when you have boasted or bragged, perhaps even put others down to make yourself look good? Have you ever tried the opposite? Looking at others and being amazed by their wonder and the things that they do?

Jesse Jackson, an American civil rights activist, said:

‘Never look down on anybody unless you are helping them up.’

What do you think that he meant by this? Is this how you live your life?

In the Bible, in John 13: 4-7, Jesus shows his humility by washing the feet of the disciples.

Can you create a tower of shoes (at home). How tall can you build it?

How can you build others up so that they can remain steady and strong?

It is so easy for your tower to fall down, just like it is so easy to knock others down with careless words or actions. Saying sorry and helping to pick them up again can help us to rebuild relationships. You could ask your family to help you with this activity so that you can all think about how you can show humility to each other.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWahWPYFawo

You might like to listen to this and think about Jesus’ example of humility.

UKS2 RE:
(UKS2 LQ: What is the significance of humility in religion?)
(Y5 LQ: How do Muslims pray?)

 

Humility is a common theme in religion.
How can humility be seen as the opposite of pride?

Y5 – Find out about Muslim prayer. How do you think it relates to humility?

Clip 1: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/religious-education-ks2-my-life-my-religion-prayer-in-islam/zjndxyc

Clip 2: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zjr87ty
Y6 & Y5 – At Rochester Cathedral there are some very worn out steps that the pilgrims used. Use the sheet below to find out how people went up the steps. Why do you think they went up like that?

 

What did Jesus show about humility at the Last Supper? https://youtu.be/bv5ajWNrnt4

 

Write a paragraph explaining how humility is considered in religion.
Make sure you use the research you carried out here as part of your explanation.

UKS2 Reading: Love That Dog

 

Mark the answers to the first questions and read the next 2 short entries. There are some more simple questions. You can find the sheet of answers and new part of the book here… Love That Dog Questions and Answers 1

 (About 30 mins.)

UKS2 Science:

(LI: Be able to research aspects associated with life cycles.)  

In previous maths lessons Y5 have found out about gestation periods and yesterday you researched them as well as ‘litter size’. We are now going to find out about ‘lifespan’ (how old a creature typically lives until) and when creatures become adults (able to have their own babies). We will add the information to your work from yesterday.
Sam found out some amazing facts about the gestation period of an octopus and the number of young it could have. Did you know that rats become able to have their own young at about 6 weeks old and become adults socially when they are about 6 months old?

Did you know a Bowhead whale can live to over 200 years old?  

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to use apostrophes for possession.)   

 

Yesterday we used our reading book to look at apostrophes for contraction.

But we may use an apostrophe to show that the poem belonged to Jack or that the class belongs to Miss Stretchberry. That’s using an apostrophe to show ‘possession’.

 

Have a go at testing your skills with this apostrophe quiz… https://www.educationquizzes.com/11-plus/english/apostrophes-to-mark-possession/

(About 10 mins.)

UKS2 Art:

(LI: Be able to create work to match a specified purpose.)

You can call the book – “The Boy Who Lost His Name” or “The Girl Who Lost Her Name”.
Be careful with the spelling and the care over drawing the letters!

(About 60 mins in your yellow book or in Word).

 

AoW: 30.6.20 – Humility with love

Can you think of your own definition of humility? What does it mean to you?

How do you think humility can draw someone closer to God?

Can you think of ways that you can practice humility in your life this week?

 

http://read.gov/aesop/025.html Read Aesop’s fable or watch it in this video clip

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOy9y_zB8L4

How can you see pride and humility in this story?

In Ephesians 4:3 it says:

‘Be completely humble and gentle: be patient, bearing with one another in love.’

Can you create a jar of humility? Every day, write on a piece of paper what someone has done to help you. Fold the paper, put it in the jar and repeat this for 7 days. At the end of the 7 days, empty out the jar and read all the examples.

In your prayers you can think about all the people who help you in different ways.

Reading: Y5 The Highwayman (First 2 stanzas) / Y6 Shakespeare

 

The Highwayman BY ALFRED NOYES

 

TOC 1) Please mark the work you did on Monday – answers are below.

 

And still of a winter’s night, they say, when the wind is in the trees,

When the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,   

When the road is a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,   

A highwayman comes riding—

         Riding—riding—

A highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door.

 

Over the cobbles he clatters and clangs in the dark inn-yard.

He taps with his whip on the shutters, but all is locked and barred.   

He whistles a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there   

But the landlord’s black-eyed daughter,

         Bess, the landlord’s daughter,

Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair.

 

TOC 1) Why do you think that these last 2 stanzas are in italics when the rest of the poem was not? It could be a break in time. For example this part happens years later. It could be a change in the characters in some way. The next questions help us…

 

TOC 2) Why do you think that the last 2 stanzas are almost identical to the first? It is a near circle. It helps to identify the end of the poem. It also makes us re-evaluate the first stanzas. This question and the one above hint that the Highwayman and the daughter are now both ghosts who continue to repeat the event. It may even make us wonder if we witnessed the ghost or not at the beginning.

 

 

UKS2 Reading
We are going to read a really interesting novel which is about poetry, relationships, personal challenge and mental health. It is written in a very unusual way. It starts with a boy either talking (or writing a note) to his teacher about why he doesn’t want to do his work!

The book is called ‘Love That Dog’ by Sharon-Creech.

Here’s the first part below…

TOC 1) We are only hearing from Jack here. What do you think he is being asked to do?

TOC 2) How do you think he feels about it?

TOC 3) Why do you think he says he can’t do it?

C 4) Explain how you know the answers to questions 1 to 3.

Don’t worry! There is more on each page as we go further!

(About 15 mins.)

 

UKS2 Science:

(LI: Be able to research aspects associated with life cycles.)  

In the last 2 maths lessons Y5 have found out about gestation periods.
 

TOC 1) What do you think is a gestation period?
TOC 2) Research the gestation period and the average ‘litter size’ of any creatures you have drawn for your buddy books. If you haven’t drawn any then please pick one of the example books and find out the answers for them. (It might be nice to include some fact sheets or Top Trumps for the buddies if we have time later. The buddies’ parents can help read the information to the children and play the game. So this information could be useful later.)

 

 

UKS2 – SpaG: 

(LI: Be able to use apostrophes for contractions.)   

 

In our new reading book the main character (Jack) uses a lot of apostrophes.
TOC 1) Why do you think he does this?
TOC 2) Write down the words with apostrophes as well as what they would look like if no contractions were used.

Eg weren’t is the contracted form of were not.
TOC 3) Then add extra examples to the list from this apostrophe quiz…
https://www.educationquizzes.com/11-plus/english/apostrophes-to-mark-omission/

 

OC 4) Can you solve this old English wordsearch made by Charlotte?

(About 30 mins.)

UKS2 Art:

(LI: Be able to create work to match a specified purpose.)  

We are really getting there now. Needed next is the child walking on a path away from the house as he or she ventures out.
