Monday 6th July

Welcome to the penultimate week of year 5!

It is so strange to think we are nearly finishing year 5 when I have not taught you face to face since March. I cannot believe it is July already!

Daily Activities:

I know some of you at school don’t have access to complete daily activities as easily – please focus on Sumdog as our percentage is not so good!

  • Zumos – Rate your day and listen to the how to be happy for today. Not many of you have been doing this so I would like to see how many can today! It only takes 10 minutes.
  • SumDog – Spend at least 20 minutes completing training – either on maths, grammar or spelling – I will be giving out more coins to those that play and opening the house on Tuesday and Thursday so you can spend them!
  • Reading – Read your own books for 20 minutes or log into Oxford Owl (www.oxfordowl.co.uk – username:hmchameleons password:hmchameleons)
  • Duolingo: Complete at least 10 minutes per day – download the app if you are able to or sign into the website.

Maths:

Starter: 10 minutes

Main Task: 20 -30 minutes

Above are the four rules to remember in regard to turns for year 5. As long as you can recall the fraction of a turn and its equivalent degrees, then that is all there is to it.

There is no video for this worksheet but I do not think it is a very complicated lesson – it is mostly revision on work from year 3 and 4.

English:

It is time to write up your monster report!

Here is the example to help you again:

Don’t forget to include these things in your writing:

Use your idea page, your diagram, the vocabulary you looked at, and most importantly your plan to help you complete the writing.

Once you have completed the writing, please email a photo of your work to year5@herbertmorrison.lambeth.sch.uk.

PSHE: Article of the Week

As a rights respecting school, we know and understand our rights. Understanding and applying Article 2, the right to non-discrimination, helps to link with our work from last week on Black Lives Matter, and the right that everyone should have.

Listen to Danny introduce the Article we will look at today – Article 2.

As a rights respecting school, we know and understand our rights. Understanding and applying Article 2, the right to non-discrimination, helps to link with our work from last week on Black Lives Matter, and understand how children’s rights are not being respected in some places.

Friday 3rd July

Happy Friday! This term is going so fast – I do not want it to end. I have really missed teaching you this term as it feels such a long time since we last saw each other. I hope that you are all keeping safe and well.

Here is a cute chameleon to start your day:

Daily Activities:

  • Zumos – Rate your day and listen to the how to be happy for today. Not many of you have been doing this so I would like to see how many can today! It only takes 10 minutes.
  • SumDog – Spend at least 20 minutes completing training – either on maths, grammar or spelling
  • Reading – Read your own books for 20 minutes or log into Oxford Owl (www.oxfordowl.co.uk – username:hmchameleons password:hmchameleons)
  • Duolingo: Complete at least 10 minutes per day – download the app if you are able to or sign into the website.

Maths:

Starter – 10 minutes:

Main Task – 20 – 30 mins: Timetables

Remember that there are 60 minutes in an hour. Therefore you cannot just subtract the two numbers. I would recommend counting the minutes to the next whole hour and then the minutes from the whole hour to the time given.

e.g. Question 4b) How long does the 13:38 from Wakefield take to get to London?

So it starts at 13:38 (Wakefield) and arrives in London at 16:01.

13:38 – count up minutes to the next hour (60 minutes in an hour) = 22 minutes. (14:00)

14:00 – count hours through to the closest hour to arrival time = 2 hours (16:00)

16:00 – count the minutes until the minutes givenfor the arrival time = 1 minute (16:01)

So the train took 2 hours and 23 minutes.

English – Monster Planning:

Activity 1: Draw your monster

It will help for you to visualise what you are writing about Label the different features of your monster. Have you added anything to your description?

Activity 2: Planning

We will look back at the original model piece of writing about the swamp monster. Here we have boxed up the writing to match the planning paragraphs.

Create your own planning sheet in your books. You don’t have to have the same paragraphs as the example but you can change them. Feel free to adapt the plan to meet your ideas/paragraphs for your monster.

Final Task: Ask an adult to read through your plan – does it make sense?

PSHE: Coping with Changes

Read through the information and complete the tasks on the slides.

Have a great weekend Year 5 – stay safe and well!

Maths:

Starter – 10 minutes:

Main Task – 20 – 30 minutes:

Two Way Tables

English: Monsters

Instead of using subheadings, the example text (from Tuesday) uses topic sentences to begin each paragraph. They are a single sentence introduction which gives you a little more detail than a subheading. It also allows the writing to flow better.

Activity 1: 15 minutes

Use the examples above to write your own version of the topic sentences for the given animal and paragraph:

e.g. Lion – appearance: Easily recognizable, lions have a distinctive appearance which makes them stand out from other big cats.

Activity 2: Designing you own monster (20 minutes)

Now comes the fun part! You need to write an information
text about a monster beast. The choices are endless and I am sure that you already have an idea about what you might do but here are some pictures that might inspire you. You could also use the internet to google ideas.

I have given you a few ideas for what your different paragraphs could be about below and I am sure that you can think of others. Write the subheadings in your home learning book and write as many ideas a possible under each subheading.

Geography: The Americas

Task 1: Sightseeing of North America

Create a table in your book with two headings – Human Geography and Physical Geography

Decide what these key attractions would be classified as – are they either naturally occurring therefore a physical geography feature of North America or are they man-made therefore a human geography feature.

Task 2: Independent Research about a State or Region in North America

Complete the sheet below to help you organise your research. Then use this to construct your information into paragraphs.

Have a great day Chameleon class!

Here is a model text about monsters – you will be creating your own similar one soon! Have a read and think carefully about how they have written it. This is your WAGOLL – What a good one looks like.

Activity 1: Match the new vocabulary to its definition

Write the word and the matching definition in your book. You might want to magpie these later on for your writing

Now before we begin to think about writing, we need to look at the tools we will need to use in order to write a good piece of writing for this type of text, an information text. Write this toolkit into your book so you will remember it for next time.

Activity 2: Formality

Imagine you are David Attenborough narrating a TV show or your writing will feature in a non-fiction book from the library. We don’t need to make our reader laugh, persuade them or in fact give any opinion at all. Our main job is to give information as precisely as possible.

PSHE: Black Lives Matter

Main Task: Reading Line Graphs

Optional Challenge: Class 5’s Names Only if you have the time after completing your maths, and want some more work to do

Here are the lists of first names of the members of Class 5. (They are in alphabetical order of their surnames so they do not seem to be ordered.)
 

list of names

One day when 34 children were in class, Mrs Clifton, their teacher, said they were going to make some block graphs and other things using their first names. She put the class lists onto the white board. First, the class made tally charts of the initial letters of their names.
The first part of Becky and Selma’s tally looked like this:

tally

Can you make a full tally chart using the class names?
Next they all made frequency tables using this information.
This is the first part of Alan and Joe’s table:

frequency

Can you make a frequency table using all the class’s names?

Next they decided which letters of the alphabet were needed and which were not needed to make a block graph of their class names. Then the boys took yellow squares and the girls took pale blue squares, drew a picture of themselves and put the initial of their first name on the square and stuck it onto paper to make a pictogram graph.
 
The last part of the class’s block graph looked like this:

pictogram

Task: Can you find out who was missing that day at school?

Main Task (20- 30 minutes):

English: Reading Focus

Today we will be using a different book for our reading focus, The Parent Agency by David Baddiel. I know some of you have read some of his other books.

If you would like to listen to David Baddiel read the extracts for today, click on here or you can read the extracts below yourself.

Barry Bennett has a long list of things he dislikes about his parents. But what if the tables were turned and children could choose their parents? What would Barry do? Published by Harper Collins Children’s Books.

Activity 1 – 15 minutes

Extract 1

‘… so I thought maybe on my birthday, next Saturday, when I wake up, it would be good if waiting outside was an Aston Martin DB6…’ Barry was saying, in between forkfuls of low-sugar, low-salt baked beans on jacket potato.

‘An Aston Martin! Write that down, Ginny!’

‘I’m writing it down, Kay!’

Barry carried on looking at his dad. He had chosen not to recognise his younger twin sisters. Barry often snuck a glance at his dad’s Daily or Sunday Express, as he knew that James Bond would have to be aware of when dangerous stuff was happening in the world, and he had read that some countries did this to other ones, sometimes. So similarly he did not call his eight-year-old twin sisters Ginny and Kay but The Sisterly Entity or TSE for short.

He did, however, out of the corner of his eye, catch them doing that sarcastic thing they did, when one of them – Barry didn’t like separating TSE into two, as that was kind of recognising that they existed, but if he had to, he would refer to them as Sisterly Entities One and Two – would pretend to write down something he said, as if it was really important. Which of course was their way of saying that it wasn’t important at all. Barry really hated it when they did that.

‘… so, Dad, on our birthday can you take us somewhere in a Rolls-Royce? Which you can keep in the garage next to the Aston Martin!’ said Sisterly Entity One.

‘Ha ha ha!’ laughed Sisterly Entity Two, who was still running her index finger across her palm as part of the pretending-to-write-down-stupid-stuff-Barry-says mime.

‘Yeah, well, they’re not that expensive to hire. I checked online,’ said Barry, trying as much as possible not to look at them. ‘And then maybe you can have, like, a tuxedo Dad ready for me to wear and a cake with 007 on it, and all my friends can come dressed as Bond villains, and maybe you can have the film soundtrack playing, and you, Dad, you can be Q, showing me gadgets, like a jet pack and a pen that’s actually a gun, and – ‘

‘Sorry, Barry, what?’ His dad put down his Sunday Express.

‘Weren’t you listening? Da-ad!’

‘Barry, please don’t say ‘Dad’ like that.’

‘Like what?’

‘Like when you give it two syllables. And go right down on the second one. On the -ad.’ This was Barry’s mum speaking.

  1. Read or watch the first extract again.

Think about the following questions before or after you have read the text:

  • How do Ginny and Kay react to Barry?
  • Do his Mum and Dad defend him or make the situation worse for Barry?
  • Is it just harmless fun with some sarcasm?
  • Or do you actually feel sorry for Barry?
  1. Write a short paragraph in response to the question, ’Do you feel sympathy towards Barry or is it just a bit of fun?’

You might want to record your evidence in a table to help you organise your ideas. You may have evidence for both sides of the question.

Evidence That Supports Sympathy For BarryEvidence That Supports It Is Just A Bit Of Fun

Activity 215 minutes

Extract 2

‘Write that face down, Ginny!’

‘I’m… a… really… stupid… looking… boy…’ said Sisterly Entity Two, moving her finger slowly across her palm.

And suddenly a feeling that had been welling up inside Barry for… well, since his dad had closed the door on Jake and Taj and Lukas just before tea, but in another way for much longer than that, maybe ever since he’d understood that, unfortunately, his name was Barry – a feeling that he wanted to both cry and shout and break something all at the same time – exploded out of him.

‘I hate you because you’re boring! And tired ALL THE TIME! And always TELLING ME OFF FOR NOTHING! And saying, ‘That’s a swear,’ when all I’ve done is say ‘BUM!”

‘Barry. That’s a swear!’ said his mum.

‘NO IT ISN’T! And because you’re so much nicer to THEM…’ He pointed at TSE. They both grinned at the same time. ‘…than to ME! And because…’ Barry realised by now that he was doing the list in his bedroom. He decided to miss out Numbers 8 and 9 – ‘Not being glamorous’ and ‘Being poor’ – since even in his rage he knew that they might just sound a bit too horrible out loud. especially as loud as he was speaking now. ‘And… YOU NEVER, EVER MAKE MY BIRTHDAY REALLY GOOD!!’

There was a short pause after he shouted this. Then Sisterly Entity One said:

‘Write that down, Ginny.’

‘I’m writing it down, Kay.’

‘Right,’ said Barry’s dad. ‘Well, if that’s how you feel, we won’t have a screening of Casino Royale on your birthday!’

‘GREAT!’ shouted Barry and he threw the DVD across the room. It spun round in the air as it made its way towards the sink. Barry was secretly quite proud of the throw; his wrist had flicked sharply as he’d released the disc, like an Olympic discus champion.

‘BARRY!!’ his dad shouted. So loudly that, for the first time this dinner time, Barry’s mum looked up from the dishwasher. Just in time to be hit in the eye by a copy of Casino Royale, starring David Niven.

‘OW!’ she said, falling backwards and out of sight again.

Barry heard a bump. Then one of the egg-timers, the red one, fell of the kitchen counter and smashed.

‘Uh-oh’, he thought.

‘RIGHT, BARRY, THAT’S IT! GO TO YOUR ROOM!’ said his dad, pointing upstairs – stupidly, really, as Barry knew the way.

‘ALL RIGHT I WILL!’ Barry shouted back.

And because he was a little frightened by now, he ran out of the kitchen as fast as he could, swerving at the last minute to avoid the bits of glass and sand from the egg-timer which was sprinkled all over the floor.

  1. Read or watch the second extract again.

Many different events happen in this extract. What do you think is the turning point, the pivotal moment?

Is it when Barry realises that he is getting angrier? Is it something that somebody says? Is it when he throws the DVD? Why?

  1. Write a short paragraph where you identify the turning point and explain your choice. Within the paragraph, you could also identify your other possible choices and explain why you have disregarded them.

Activity 3Challenge

What are your impressions of Barry?

Imagine that you have the opportunity to ask Mum, Dad, Kay and Ginny that question. What do you think they would say?

Write a couple of sentences in role as each character in response to the question, ‘What is your impression of Barry?’ or ‘How do you feel about Barry?’

Have some fun writing in role as four different characters.

In the chapter, Stanley begins to write a letter to his mom. In it, he begins to pretend to write about Camp Green Lake as if it is a fun an exciting place. We all know that it is the opposite of this. I would like you for your writing today to complete the letter

Use the same starter and complete the letter, imagining what Stanley would say to make his mum feel better about Camp Green Lake. Follow the paragraph hints given below. It is helpful to think of it as writing the opposite of what Stanley has experience, e.g. The showers are so luxurious here – piping hot water for as long as you want. It really helps to relax my aching shoulders from all that swimming.

Dear Mom,

Today was my first day at camp, and I’ve already made some friends. We’ve been out on the lake all day so I’m pretty tired.Once I pass the swimming test, I will

(First paragraph continued – explain about the different activities you can do at Camp Green Lake. Remember this is Stanley’s imaginary camp to make up some great camp activities. Think about the things you would do on residential)

(Second paragraph – Describe where Stanley stays, eats and washes/sleeps. What is there on the camp site for him to enjoy in his spare time (the Wreck room)? wildlife?)

(Third paragraph – Talk about the people that Stanley has met/heard of – Mr Sir, The Warden, Mr Pendanski and his fellow campers)

(Concluding paragraph – Remind your mum not to worry, that you will write soon and sign off your letter. You could include questions that your mum would reply to e.g. asking about the family etc…)
