Happy Monday Stiperstones!
I hope you have all had a lovely time in the sunshine this weekend, I had a lovely day in the garden on Saturday – wasn’t the weather beautiful!
If you did anything special to celebrate VE day, I would love to hear about it!
Hopefully you are all finding the work okay – here is your work for this week, this will follow the same format as always.
Each week we will be continuing with the daily maths lessons on White Rose, which again can be accessed through these links:
Once on that link, you should find the Summer term week 4 (Week 11th May) section.
Once you are sure you are on Summer Term Week 4 (Week 11th May), then you need to follow each lesson for this week:
- Lesson 1 on Monday
- Lesson 2 on Tuesday
- Lesson 3 on Wednesday
- Lesson 4 on Thursday
- Lesson 5 on Friday (this will be the maths challenge)
All can be found in Summer Term week 4 via the above links.
There is one lesson per day, and please stick to this, then we are all in the same place, as next Monday there will be a new week to access.
Remember , like the last few weeks, for each lesson, you firstly watch the lesson video on the left through the usual links to White Rose, however – there will no longer be a ‘Get the activity’ button on the right, from now on – you will need to click on my separate links for the activities and answer sheets (see below). you can either print the activity sheets or complete the activity in your books. You can still check your work after you have finished or ask an adult to help mark your work with you.
Here are the Activities and answers –
Lesson 1 is Monday
Lesson 2 is Tuesday
Lesson 3 is Wednesday
Lesson 4 is Thursday
Friday will be the maths challenge accessed through main link like usual
Remember – if you are running out of room in your books, you can always contact the school by phone or email ( Mrs Winwood – admin ) and you can come to the office to collect one.
Reading and Writing
For reading, the instructions are the same this week – each day you will still need to access ‘Fiction Express’ you will all have received a log in to access the website from Mrs Winwood – if you have not had your log in information for Fiction Express, or if you are struggling to access the site, please contact Mrs Winwood.
Once you have logged on, you will need to access the new book online that we will all read together (each week I will continue to choose a new book for you to read). You will read a chapter a day (Chapter 1 Monday, Chapter 2 Tuesday, Chapter 3 Wednesday, Chapter 4 Thursday and Chapter 5 on Friday). You will complete a little quiz each day after the chapter (the link for quiz each day will be on the same webpage as the chapter for the book).
This is the link to our next book called ‘The Longest Night’ by Christina Clover you will need to copy and paste the link below into your internet browser.
You will see that there are 5 chapters, one for each day of the week. To read each chapter, open the link above, click the little arrow pointing down next to the chapter you are on (so today will be Chapter 1 as it is Monday), and then click the ‘Read’ button.
So, you will read :
- Chapter 1 on Monday
- Chapter 2 on Tuesday
- Chapter 3 on Wednesday
- Chapter 4 on Thursday
- Chapter 5 on Friday
After reading each chapter, you will complete the little quiz for that day.
There are also some reading comprehension questions and writing activities in a booklet to work through after reading each chapter. Here are the links to each activity booklet for each day. Please do complete some of the writing work for each chapter.
Please note – The booklets will say Week 1, Week 2 etc. on them, but we are using these as day 1, day 2 etc. if you can not print the activity book, do not worry! you can always complete the tasks in your exercise books or on paper. I understand that there is a lot in each booklet, so try your best – I understand that you may not get a whole booklet done each day, and this is okay as long as you have done some of the writing tasks!
If you have any problems accessing work, you can always contact Mrs Winwood at school.
Chapter 1 activities (Monday) – Chapter 1 Activities
Chapter 2 Activities (Tuesday) – Chapter 2 Activities
Chapter 3 Activities (Wednesday) – Chapter 3 Activities
Chapter 4 Activities (Thursday) – Chapter 4 Activities
Chapter 5 Activities (Friday) – Chapter 5 Activities
Tip! – Where you see the ‘Quiz’ button for each chapter, you will also see a ‘glossary’ button. If you do not understand the meaning of any words in the story, check here in the glossary. This will help with the meaning of some new words!
So to recap – each day for reading and writing, you will:
- go to this link for our new book- https://en.fictionexpress.com/book/ridleys-rovers/
- first read the correct chapter for that day (click on ‘read’ button next to each chapter)
- then complete the short quiz for that chapter (click on ‘quiz’ button next to each chapter)
- then click on the correct activity booklet (above) and complete the comprehension questions and some of the grammar and writing activities for that chapter (if you can not print, don’t worry! you can complete these in your exercise books).
Other activities (including afternoon activities)
Like last week, for any other activities, including afternoon tasks, please access this link below which will take you to Classroom secrets ‘Home Learning Timetable’ –
TIP ! You may find it easier to access this link first each day, check the daily timetable and choose your activities from this, and THEN decide where you will fit in your reading /writing (Fiction Express) and maths lessons (White Rose) within this timetable.
To access the correct daily time table for you, click on the link above, scroll down and make sure you are on the correct week (this week will be week beginning Monday 11th May), then Click on your year group (either Year 4 or Year 5) and then click on the correct day (so today, you will click on Monday). This will then give you activities to choose from for each lesson. You can choose one from each section of the time table. Please try to vary the type of activities you choose. There will be a physical exercise on this timetable for you to complete each day.
As always – Please remember to ensure that you are still completing the usual daily tasks:
- Practising your spellings (see our class spelling page of our school website to see your weekly spelling lists) and have a spelling test each week with an adult to see how you got on.
- Also practise your times tables each day, both multiplication and division facts – e.g. you should learn that 20 ÷ 5 = 4 as well as 5 x 4= 20 so when practising, ask an adult to help you practise and test you on both multiplication and division (you can also use Times Tables Rock stars for this – the ‘Sound check’ part of Times Tables Rock stars will really help with your speed!).
- Please also read to an adult each day (this could be the chapter of our book on Fiction Express if you like, or you can read this to yourself and read any other book you are reading at home to an adult)
I am sorry to remind you about this each week, but these things are things that you would be doing each week at home anyway during normal term time and they are really important!
You can also continue to take part in the Joe Wicks (Body Coach) daily workout. These work outs are still live at 9:00 am each weekday morning and are available to catch up with each day on YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
As always, If you have any questions, or problems with work online, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Winwood via email. If she can’t help you, she will get in touch with me. Also, remember – please feel free to send her anything you would like me to see. Mrs Winwood will always send me anything you send through.
Have a great week everybody, and remember – if the work is too much, do as much as you can!
