I hope you have all had a lovely half term and have enjoyed some sunshine!
Before half term I hope you all found the links to the Maths work okay and managed to get used to the new way of downloading the worksheets and answers from my page rather than the White Rose website.
Here is your work for this week, this will follow the same format as before half term.
Each week we will be continuing with the daily maths lessons on White Rose, again the videos for each lesson each day can be accessed through these links:
Once on that link, you should find the Summer term week 6 (Week 1st June) pink section.
Once you are sure you are on Summer Term Week 6 (Week 1st June), then you need to follow each lesson for this week. The videos follow this pattern:
- 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 6 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 – remember there is 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 worksheets and answer sheets (see below). You can either print the activity sheets OR complete the activity in your books or on paper. You can still check your work after you have finished or ask an adult to help mark your work with you.
Here are the worksheets and answers – they are in folders below. The best thing is to download each folder now for your year group and then within the folders are the worksheets and answers for each day this week Monday to Thursday. Remember Friday will be the challenge on the White Rose video page.
Year 4 Maths folders for the whole week
Year 5 Maths folders for the whole week
Once again – Friday will be the maths challenge accessed through main links 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 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’ Curious Cal and the Wish Machine’ by Author Cavan Scott.
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 ensure you 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 Chapter 1 day 1, Chapter 2 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) –Curious Cal – Chapter 1 Activities
Chapter 2 Activities (Tuesday) – Curious Cal – Chapter 2 Activities
Chapter 3 Activities (Wednesday) – Curious Cal – Chapter 3 Activities
Chapter 4 Activities (Thursday) – Curious Cal – Chapter 4 Activities
Chapter 5 Activities (Friday) – Curious Cal – 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).
NEW for us this half term! – BBC Bitesize English Lessons
Here are also some general English Lessons from BBC Bitesize for each day – these are really beneficial lessons for you Stiperstones, as they cover a good range of English skills including some valuable grammar and punctuation lessons.
Here is the link below – click on this link each day – click on your relevant class (Year 4 or Year 5 ) and then select the ‘English’ lesson – please do this each day:
Extra optional activities (possible afternoon activities)
For any other activities, including afternoon tasks, you can access this link below which will take you to Classroom secrets ‘Home Learning Timetable’ – you can click on the relevant week and then select your year group.
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), BBC Bitesize English and maths lessons (White Rose) within this timetable.
There really are some fun things on this Classroom Secrets timetable such as cooking and science activities – take a look!
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)
Once again – I am sorry to be still reminding you about these things each week, but remember they are really really important parts of your learning!
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.
Have a great first week back with your home learning everybody. I am still missing you all very much!
