Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Thursday 4th June 2020

GOOD MORNING! 

I hope you are all well. 

I am holding a Zoom Meeting today at 2pm. 

I have already sent the details out via email, last night. 

I hope to see you all there!! 

 

Stay safe, 

Miss Sharpe

Reciprocal Reading 

Today, we are going to continue reading our final chapter of ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth.’ Read pages 8 and 9 below. Then, you are going to answer these questions below (in full sentences). 

 

Q1- What did Will ‘agree’ to by shaking Marty’s hand? 

Q2- Why did Marty only manage four days of keeping his promise to Will? 

Q3- Why do you think that Will was lucky to have seen the phosphorescence? 

Q4- How did HP find out about Marty and his secret about his tooth being broken?  

Q5- What made Will jump out of bed quickly? 

Literacy 

Now we have read the end of the story, today you are going to plan your big write that you will do on Friday. The writing aim will be to write the end of the story. 

 

Your focus will be on these questions: 

  1. What do you think Marty will say about his tooth getting broken? 

  2. How will he tell mum and dad?

  3. What will he tell them what happened? 

  4. How might they react? 

  5. Then what might happen to finish this story off? Will it be a happy ending for the family? Will Marty and his Brother (Will) finally decide to stick together or will they continue to tease and make fun of eachother? 

 

You decide:  

You need to either complete an ‘S’ plan to plan the ending of this story or you can use the questions above as prompts to write notes and keywords that will be important to your ending - NOT SENTENCES.

Maths

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green: Today you will be learning to recognise and describe 2d shapes. Remember, a line of symmetry is when you can divide a shape into 2 parts that mirror each other (the same both sides) - here is a video to explain this clearly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFzktJNm PU. A quadrilateral is a shape with 4 sides. You will need to remember what we have learnt about obtuse and acute angles if you are in Yellow or Green group. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

 

Blue 2: Today you will be learning to describe turns. Here is a link to a video that might be helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFC46Fb5xv. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

 

Blue 1: Today you will be recapping ordering numbers to 10. There will be a range of mathematical language used such as, ‘more than’, ‘less than’, ‘fewer’. You need to be able to understand whether this language means more or less. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

Religious Education 

Why do Muslims visit Makkah? 

This week in RE, we are continuing with our learning about pilgrimage and special journeys. We have already learnt about Hindu’s and pilgrims they take. This week, it is all about Muslims and why they visit Makkah. 

I would like you to do some research on Muslims and their pilgrimage. To get you started there are a few clips you might find useful. 

Watch this video to find out what the Hajj pilgrimage is. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/24566691

Below is a video about Hajj - day one and day two - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zx8n34j 

 

When you have researched pilgrimages I would like you to think about why many people go to Makkah.  Here are some comments from pilgrims. 

  • “In fact, when I came back, I didn’t want to hate again, only to love.” 

  • “It made me much more devoted to Allah, and more delighted to be a Muslim. I found peace at Makkah.” 

  • “I never experienced any emotion like this before or since, I was completely overwhelmed by the wish to serve God.” 

  • To me, the Hajj was wonderful because of the brotherhood and sisterhood it showed, all Muslims as one.” 

  • “When I pray now, I am remembering, not just thinking.” 

 

Choose three of these comments below that are from Muslims and explain how the Hajj makes a difference to life using them.
