WB 11.01.21

Hello 2AB!

I hope that you are happy and healthy and the work is going well. Well, your letters have taken government by storm. They have been passed on to Victoria Atkins, who is our local MP. She has written to Mr Jenrick about the issue and we are waiting for his response. Clearly your arguments were very persuasive! 

In maths this week we are going to continue looking at Addition and Subtraction. The week starts with mental strategies so please do not use formal methods for this work; look carefully at the strategies at the top of the sheets to help you. We then move on to formal methods and end the week by looking at estimating answers. This involves the use of rounding to give a rough answer to a calculation. There may be a difference between your answer and the answer booklet depending on what you have rounded to. Mark the answer correct if you are close. I have put scans from the Y4 and Y5 textbooks along with the answers. In addition, I have uploaded the Click and Safe booklets so that you can complete one set of questions from each booklet each week.

 

In English, we are going to continue looking at discussion texts by first editing and improving a rather poor version. We will then make some notes and plan our text. The week ends with some grammar work on compound and complex sentences. PSHE continues to look at bullying and suggests different strategies to resolve it. Science considers what a magnet is and comprehension continues looking at Bill's new frock. There is also some portrait work inspired by Julian Opie and Spanish.

 

Sending work in

I would be grateful if you could mark the maths using the answer booklet and if a parent or guardian could let me know in an email how the maths has gone for the week. The work in English can be completed on a work document or handwritten work can be scanned and then sent to me, if possible each day. I am teaching in the morning and will be able to look at it in the afternoon. Finally, there are some spellings for you to learn. I will be in work each day and so there may be a delay in getting back to you, but please do send in your questions and English work regularly using the class email.

Start your day in a mindful way...

Edit and improve a text

Oh dear. Mr Blair has rushed his discussion text. Read through and label:

sp next to spelling mistakes;

cl next to capital letter mistakes

fs next to full stop mistakes

punc next to any other punctuation mistakes.

Sense next to any parts that do not make sense.

Correct mistakes on the sheet and then write out a corrected version. Send this version to me for marking.

Art lesson on Julian Opie

Look at the presentation to find out about the artist Julian Opie and then have a go at drawing in his style.

English

Making notes

I have completed some research for you on the arguments for and against school uniform. Read through all of the sheets and write bullet-pointed notes under suitable headings. You should have two or three arguments in favour and two or three arguments against the wearing of school uniform. Complete notes for the introduction once you are clear about the various arguments and complete notes for your conclusion (your opinion).

Spanish

Please follow the instructions on the presentation. Write out the Spanish vocabulary with the English translation for slides 4,5 & 6. Use the phonics to practise your pronunciation.

Planning your discussion text

Look carefully at the notes you made in the previous two sessions. You should now be confident about the arguments for and against the wearing of school uniform. Look at the planning sheet which I have made especially for this exercise. Detail each point eg expensive and then add a few details. These details should be bullet points and very brief - reminders of the main arguments. Remember, you will have your notes to help you to write the text. 

PSHE

Resolving bullying

Read through the presentation and complete the activities at the relevant points.

Estimating Answers

In this lesson you will use your rounding skills to give an estimate of an answer. Look carefully at the examples shown at the top of the sheet. Round the numbers first. In some cases you will have to decide what you feel you should round to. Rounding to the nearest 10 will give a more accurate estimate, but will be more difficult to add/subtract. For larger numbers we are often only interested in the answer to the nearest 100 or 1000. Once you have your estimate, complete the actual calculation. Pick an appropriate starting point and mark using the answer booklet. Your estimate may vary from the answer in the answer booklet. That is ok - still mark it correct if your estimate is well worked out and close to the actual answer.

English Compound and complex sentences

Complete the first sheet, joining the clauses together with a conjunction to make compound sentences.

Then look at the presentation which goes through relative clauses using a relative pronoun. Complete the activity sheet and then the activity sheet on relative clauses with a relative adverb.
