Reading – Make sure that you are reading for 20 minutes a day whilst you are at home. Don’t forget that you can log on to Oxford Owl and access books there and also 

1.    English

Lesson 1: Reading
Today we will be launching our new class text that we will be reading this half term. Mrs Gadsby will take you through the new book and will set you tasks where you need to make predictions. We will then be reading through the introduction and chapter 1 together. Each day, you will be given a new chapter to listen to.

SPaG: Today you will be looking at a spelling rule: double consonants. Watch the input and have a go at the different tasks that they give you. We would then like you to make a list of words that have double consonants which are nouns, verbs and adjectives. You will find this in your assignments.

Lesson 2: Our new unit of work will be based on your own invention. Today you will be looking at different explanation texts and will look at one in particular more carefully. You will be talked through the model and then we would like you to complete a likes, dislikes, questions and puzzles sheet about the text.

SPaG: Today is your second lesson looking at double consonants. After you have watched the input and completed the spelling test as the end, we want you to be creative and come up with a quiz that will test people on whether a word has a double consonant or not. We want you to be as creative as possible.

Lesson 3: In English today, you will be creating a toolkit based upon our model text The Teacher Pleaser. You will look at the different features that the text includes, pick out examples of them and explain the purpose (why they are included). The input video will take you through the different features so it is important you watch it carefully.

Today you will be looking at what compound words are and how we use them. Watch the input and complete the different tasks that is asks you to. Once you are done, we would like you to create a poster showing different examples of compound nouns and how they are split up. This is shown in the video so you will be able to complete the task after watching the input.

Lesson 2:  Building on your work from yesterday’s lesson, you will be continuing to look at 2 decimals place numbers and use your knowledge to explain them and to order them. Watch the input carefully as there will be different examples of the questions you will encounter in your assignment today.

Lesson 3:  Today Mrs Gadsby will be talking to you about how we convert (turn) 2 decimal place numbers into fractions. Today you will be focusing on 1 decimal place numbers and how we can show these both as decimals and fractions. Watch the input carefully as she will go through different visual examples that relate to the questions you will answer.

Lesson 4:  Carrying on from yesterday, you will be continuing to look at converting (changing) decimals into fractions and vice versa. Building on from yesterday, you will look at tenths and hundredths as well as moving on to whole numbers. Watch the input carefully as Mrs Gadsby will go through different visual examples as well as explaining the task.

3.    Spellings 

Words: Interest, island, knowledge, learn, length, library, material, medicine, mention and minute
Lesson 1:  Look up each word in a dictionary. Write out its definition and use it in a sentence. If you need an online dictionary, use this website https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ 
Lesson 2:  Use the method of look, cover, write, check to practise your spellings. Underline any parts of the word that you are finding tricky.
Lesson 3: Yesterday, you should have underlined any parts of your spelling rules that you found tricky. Practise writing them again but this time write the tricky part in a different colour. 
Lesson 4:  Create a word search of your words. See if a family member can find all of them.
Lesson 5: Get a family member to test you on your spellings. How many did you get right? Which ones will you need to keep working at? 

4.   Topic

Lesson 1 – To launch our new topic, we will be today learning about gravity and air resistance. Mrs Stone will talk you through the science behind it and then you will use your work from DT to design and create a parachute. Your task, once the parachute is made, is to try out different objects and see what the heaviest thing is in your house that it will support. Make sure you write down what you test, whether it was successful and what the outcome was. Remember to take photos of your parachute and the different tests that you carry out.

DT task linked to topic:
We have sent you all equipment to make yourself a parachute. Your job is to design your parachute and make it. Make sure your designs are labelled and you’ve thought about how you are going to put your parachute together.

Lesson 2 – Today you will be taking a closer look at gravity and air resistance and will use your knowledge and experience from Monday to help explain it. Watch Mrs Stone’s input and then complete the task about the sky diver. You will need to watch her input carefully as she explains what and how you complete the task.

Fit4Life – Today Mr Millar takes you through different ball games that you can do at home. Watch his input and then have a go at them. Can you film yourself playing them? Can you come up with your own ones that we can put on the website for others to have a go at?

5.    Science 

Science – This half term, alongside our work on forces, we will be learning about plants. Today’s lesson looks at the different parts of the flowers and what their job is. Watch Mrs Gadsby’s input and take notes if you need to. She will explain the task at the end of the input for you.
