Good Morningsmiley

Thank you for the emails I have received. I apologise for any replies that have been slower than usual, my internet connection has been poor over the last few days. However, it seems to be working a little better now so I hope to be emailing at a quicker rate (fingers crossed anyway). 

 

I hope to hear from you today with any learning you have completed. I am really enjoying reading through and seeing what you have done so far this week. Well done, I have a class of true superstars! laugh 

Best wishes, 

Miss Sharpe (your very proud teacher). 

Reciprocal Reading

Today you will be answering some more questions about the pages you are reading however, the answer might not always be in the text. You need to take clues from the text and use what you already know to answer the ‘What/why do you think?’ questions. These can be tricky so work with an adult if you are stuck.

 
  • Why do you think Marty said ‘I’m warning you’ to HP?

  • What do you think Marty meant when he said that Crow and his mates were ‘armed to the teeth’.

 

Then, use this link: https://www.dictionary.com/ to clarify the meaning of these words:

  • Seeped

  • Merchant

  • Horizon

Grammar

Today you will be looking at articles ‘a’ or ‘an’. Something I have noticed from our writing, is that we are not always using ‘a’ or ‘an’ correctly e.g. ‘I would like a apple’. You must remember the rule that all words following ‘an’ must start with a vowel (a, e, i, o, u) and all words following ‘a’ must start with a consonant (all other letters).

 

For example:

I would like an apple.

Can you pass me a knife and fork?

 

Attached are your worksheets. You can print the sheets if you have access or you can write the sentences out on some paper.

Maths

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green - Today you will be learning to tell the time to 5 minutes. 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 find a quarter. Remember, you can do this by finding half and half again so you end up with 4 equal groups. 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 learning to describe position using the words ‘left, right, up or down.’ 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).

History-

As part of our Anglo-Saxons topic, today in history we are going to learn about Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. A kingdom is basically a settlement, it is where they settled to live. Attached is a PowerPoint which explains the names of places where the Anglo-Saxons settled.

 

Once you have learnt this through the Powerpoint and any extra research you wish to do, I would like you to do the following tasks: 

  • Name some Anglo-Saxon kingdoms and write them in a list. 

  • Map work - label the Kingdoms/colour them in different colours). 

  • List the names of the tribes that settled in Britain after the Roman army left (add this onto your map).

  • EXTENSION TASK - Create a poster showing all you have learnt about Anglo-Saxon place names and their meanings.

Your poster should include:

  • Examples of place names and their meanings.
  • Examples of Anglo-Saxon words/information related to the naming of places.
  • Pictures and diagrams to show places and/or their geographical location (where in Britain they are).
