Thursday 4th March    World Book Day

Maths: I am attaching maths work - but only one sheet today!

Zoom- 9.15am  

During the morning- I would like to try to write a class story- where we each write a bit and pass it on….. not sure how well this will work - but let’s have a go! We will talk about it in our meeting and then maybe I will start it off and then email it to one of you- you then email it back to me, I will then pass it on to the next person, and so on! ( eek!) ( we might have to continue next week )

 

Lesson:

I am giving you the option of completing the maths sheet if you would like.  If not, go straight onto the links below and suggestions, if you are completing the maths, complete the sheet and then if you have time click on the links below.

Why not create your own comic story? Re-design our book area in school- what could it have- what could it look like?   

 

Lunch 12-1pm

Afternoon Learning.

Lexia activity 1pm-1.30pm

Zoom -1.30   I am really sorry but will be attending Maths training again this afternoon- so I am afraid that there will not be a Zoom session.

Your learning for the afternoon is;

I am suggesting a range of activities, please don't think that you need to complete all of it this afternoon.  It is also up to you the order in which you complete it. Don't forget to read as well! 

 

Geography

Complete your Geography work from Tuesday. 

 

Computing

Log into Purple Mash and complete the 2Do '2Code' 

WALT: Use variables, timers, and if statements to loop between night and day scenes.

WALT: create a night and day scene by making the sun rise and set.

You will be using 2Code to program to add a timer, change the background colour and show and hide the sun to make the day and night appear. Work through all of the challenges set. If you are secure with this and you have completed the tasks- you can then move onto 2Do Vehicles.  We are working towards you creating your own computer program using 2Code.

 

AND

Complete any work that you haven’t finished. I will say that you have until Friday the 12th March to hand it in.  (That will be your homework too!)

 

If you have time;

Geography... If you have time...

Find various objects around the house such as food, clothes, toys and books and identify where they were made and then look on the map- see how far they have travelled. Make a list of these objects and the country they link you to.

Wednesday 3rd March Music and DT Learning Information

In Music this week we are continuing to learn to sing a piece of music called Dona Nobis Pacem (Give Us Peace). Listen to the performance track and try singing it.  Open the Word document below to guide you through this music learning.

 

In DT this term you will design and hopefully make and evaluate something that links to your WWII topic.

You can choose whether you want to design a gas mask, an aeroplane or an Anderson shelter (or you can suggest a different artefact).  You will need to decide what the purpose of your design is; this is called 'the brief' eg

The gas mask must fit a child's head, must be comfortable to wear for 15 minutes and must not allow the wearer to smell anything outside the mask.

The plane must be at least 30cm long, fly a distance of at least 2 metres and should be able to land without disintegrating.

The Anderson Shelter must be waterproof and must withhold a 1kg weight being placed on it.

 

Follow the Word document below for the item you have chosen to design and complete each section as you design, make and evaluate your item.

Dear Cameron Class

 

I am looking forward to seeing you for our Art and Music learning zoom on Wednesday at 1.30pm.  If your parents have let me know that you will not be attending, then I will know not to expect you.  However, you do need to complete the learning even if you are not on the zoom.

 

For Art, please read through the powerpoint 'Rich and Poor Victorians' and then, using pencil and paper, draw a rich and a poor Victorian based on the photographs included.  Think about hairstyles, clothes, accessories (handbags, scarves etc).  You can choose if they are adults or children.

 

For Music, listen to the audio track 'Poverty Knocks' and follow along with the score (the sheet music) open, thinking about the words, the rhythm,  the character of the music.  This song is about poor Victorians who have to work in a mill.  Open the document 'Poverty Knocks Music Task' and answer each question.

 

Send me your art and music work by Friday 8th January at 4.00pm please.

Good Morning Cameron Class.  I hope that you had a good weekend.

 

9.00-9.15am- if you are able to go onto YouTube and find a 15 minute PE with Joe work out to wake you up!

 

9.15-9.45am- Maths Zoom

 

 Maths- Today you are learning about co-ordinates.

Watch the following ppt/ clip to get you started and remind you of quadrants.  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/week-13-geometry-position-direction/

I am also attaching another ppt which you can follow if you need more support.

Are you feeling warm, hot or spicy?   If you are feeling Spicy, maybe start with the hot and then move on.

 

10.30- 11am – Literacy Zoom

 

Literacy – Today and tomorrow you are going to be writing your own mini playscript based in the Victorian times.  It could be based on a story that you know…ie Oliver Twist/ the work house/ children working in Victorian times, or it could be based on Maggie May and The Match factory that we watched in History.  Or it could be completely made up and based on your own characters/ story.

We will discuss it further in our class Zoom- but as a starter you could be thinking of ideas.

 

You need to think about;

  • The story- what is going to happen? Is it going to grip people?
  • How many characters you have got- and who they are/ what are they like? These will be your cast. ( don’t have too many)
  • The layout of a playscript (use the one that we have got for our class assembly)
  • Are you going to have a narrator?
  • Keep asking yourself- would someone want to watch it?

 

Spelling:- some of us confuse the ch and the sh sounds – please watch the following link.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zt62mnb/articles/z8f3qhv

If you know that you are secure with these spellings, please could you be continuing to learn spellings from the middle of your reading record book.

 

Grammar- please remind yourself of fronted adverbials….   And then remember to put them in your writing!! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/zp937p3

 

Lunch

 

Zoom 1.30pm-2pm – we will start to run through the assembly so please make sure that you know your lines.

Keep learning your lines this afternoon please.

 

Science: Please follow the link below and choose one of the scientists to learn about.  Make notes and create a fact sheet about the scientist.  You must include- who they are.  What did they invent? How has it impacted on the way we live?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-ks2-discovering-the-work-of-Michael-Faraday/zj7f47h

Friday  17th  July  

Good Morning Cameron Class.

 

You know what to do now…here are your suggestions for the day!

 

9.00am   -Find an old Joe Wicks work out to do- or make up your own.

 

9.30- 10.30am     Literacy  - Have you?

  • Written your story/ poem/ descriptive piece of the picture ‘A Dangerous Pet’?  You could have also written a persuasive piece of writing, persuading your parent to let you keep a dangerous pet!
  • Written a letter to someone in our class/school saying goodbye, if so, have you emailed it to me? Or could you write another one.
  • Did you complete your comic strip?
  • Did you compete your writing comparing the two plays that we have looked at?
  • I would then like you to write a page of a diary entry reflecting your time during lockdown.   Include comments about the work that you have competed, work that you have particularly enjoyed.  What other things you have done.  Thoughts feelings. Everything!  It can be longer than a page. 

           Just make sure that you reflect your journey over the last few months.

  • Write a goodbye letter to somebody in the class/school.  It could be to a friend or member of staff.  Remember how to set out a letter correctly.  And remember to sign your name at the end (something which we keep forgetting!! )  I would really like it if you could email it to me,  and then I can forward it onto the person.

 

When you have completed all of your pieces of writing:

 Proofread your writing from the week. You can use a dictionary to check the spelling of any words that you found challenging. This will also enable you to check that the meaning of the word is suitable for the sentence.


Spellings:

 

11.00am-   Tune into David Walliams-   https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/  for a daily story.

 

Maths    Arithmetic, Problem of the Day.  Times tables; https://www.timestables.co.uk/speed-test/

https://www.timestables.co.uk/rally.html

 

Main Maths:- Today is the day for completing any unfinished work this week. Take some time to reflect on your learning over the last 3 months.  What have you found good/ challenging/ easy ?  Write everything down- email me if you can please.  What do you think you need more support on?

Literacy-  Writing 

WALT: create suspense in our writing.

 

A Large Dangerous Pet

 

 

 

Question time!

Why has the King given his children a dragon?

Do you think it’s a wise decision?

What do you think the children will try and train their dragon to do?

Can you think of any strategies that the children might use to train their dragon?

Where do the children live?

Can you think of a good name for their kingdom?

Why do you think the children will need ‘all the help they can get’ when they come to rule?

Can you think of names for the children?

What is the boy feeding the dragon?

What do you think the girl is carrying?

 

 

What dangerous pet would you have???

 

Possible story start: 

The King had known that the gift he presented to his children on their 5th birthday was dangerous. He was prepared to take the risk of letting them own a pet dragon, however. One day, the twins would rule the kingdom together, and they would need all the help they could get. No-one could deny that a dragon was a powerful ally!

Before that day, though, the children had much work to do. They had to train their dragon!

 

TASK: 

You could use the above story starter to write a story.  You could use your own if you wanted to. 

You could invent your own dangerous pet and write a story about that.

You could write a narrative poem.

 

In your writing make sure that you include;

  • Plan your writing first
  • Organise and shape paragraphs effectively.
  • Include adverbials
  • Use persuasive language if applicable
  • Use the full range of ks2 punctuation, including colons, semi-colons and dashes, to mark the boundary between clauses.
  • Include similes, metaphors and personification 
  • Write and control a range of sentence structures including those which contain multiple clauses.

 

Shakespeare and Twelfth Night       https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zqhn7yc

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhw9vwx

I would then like you to write a detailed piece of writing, comparing the two Shakespeare stories that we have looked at this term. (Twelfth Night and The Tempest)

 

If you would like to revisit the animations for The Tempest here is the link

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/english-ks2-the-tempest-index/zfdshbk

Here is another link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z87dg7h

 

What are the similarities/ differences?  Which do you prefer? Why?

 

Before you start your writing read through the following prompts and then MAP OUT YOUR IDEAS FIRST.

 

You could start by comparing and contrasting features, such as:

  • setting - when and where is each text set?
  • genre - is it a comedy, something else?
  • characterisation - the character’s behaviour, appearance, beliefs, experiences, dialogue
  • narrative perspective - who is telling the story?
  • language choices - the writer’s choice of words, phrases, imagery
  • narrative structure - the order of events in the text

 

Structuring your comparison;

It can sometimes be tricky to structure your writing when making a comparison. It’s helpful to have some sentence starters and linking words that compare:

  • Similarly
  • Likewise
  • Equally

There are also helpful sentence starters and linking words that contrast:

  • In comparison
  • However

 

Why are we doing this? Comparing texts can help to extend and deepen your understanding and analysis of texts​​​​​​​

 

Science Activities- Don't forget to record it in your book- and TAKE A PHOTO!

Residential Trip 2019

Friday Update

The children had great fun - soaking Mrs Sheraton... she was wetter than the children when they went raft building and swimming in the pond!

They all slept soundly last night ~ I think everyone was asleep by 11! This is a first for a school trip... and they all had to be woken up this morning. They are now enjoying archery and abseiling before burgers for lunch and the bus ride home!

The children have been an absolute pleasure- the best group of children I have ever taken. We have absolutely loved being their leaders and are so proud of each and everyone. Every child has had a go at everything... in or out of their comfort zone! 

 

Thursday Update

We had a great afternoon yesterday, with giant swing and fencing ( think we have a couple of champions amongst us!) chicken curry or meatballs, salad, bread, apple crumble, yoghurt and fruit - we all had a good feed. Evening activity was capture the flag..,, good job they had stocked up on sweets ( vegetables in bags as they call it!) to give them energy as they continued to run around for an hour and a half.. continuously!
Then bed time... more sweets... lots of chat!!

After a relatively good nights sleep, we have had breakfast of scrambled egg, baked beans, bacon, porridge, cereals, fruit we are now taking part in canoeing and Jacobs ladder.

What amazing children we have with us- to say I am proud is an understatement!

Gaveston Hall Day 3 Update

We’re coming home.... Cameron’s coming home! .....in a couple of hours.  Everybody slept a bit better last night so the general mood is happy and excited.  This morning's activities include field zorbing and tree climbing!!! 

Gaveston Hall Day 3

Gaveston Hall Day 2 

We all had a lovely lunch of sandwiches and we have been learning how to set the table and clear up after lunch.

This morning we have been body-zorbing and karting. This afternoon we have enjopyed the delights of canoeing and buggy building - then racing our vehicles.  Great fun!

Gaveston Hall Day 2

 

Not a lot of sleep was had by some people (!) but the children were in good spirits this morning regardless.  They had a hearty breakfast and set off for an exciting morning of activities.

 

Zorbing, assault courses and problem solving challenges have been the order of the day so far....

Gaveston Hall Day 2

Gaveston Hall Day 1

if you look in the distance you can see the coach arriving... the calm before the storm!!! Everyone has had a really enjoyable afternoon; the children have all learned how to make their own beds - one more skill to add to their repertoire and no excuses at home now!  At 5.00pm they were playing on the play area before tea and evening activities! 

Gaveston Hall Residential

Buddy trip with Barton - July 2018

Welcome to our PGL Gallery and news update

Day Three

We all had a good (ish) nights sleep, and are now packing before breakfast (what a task!!) Earlier on yesterday, one of the instructors said that her group could throw some water on her as it was so hot. The children asked me if they could 'get' me too. I said (because it was hot, a little water would have been refreshing) that they could sprinkle me a little later. The afternoon was jam-packed with activities and fun and then by evening I thought they had forgotten.... oh no.... so, a promise is a promise. At 9.15pm I was expecting a little bit of water from their water bottles - how naive! (I'm still not sure where they got them from but most of the children suddenly produced 2 full bottles of water, and obviously it was both groups by then, ready and waiting!) thankfully, Ms Corlett (my saviour) said only one bottle could be deployed!  

 

We are now about to go off to breakfast, then it is our turn for the zip wire and aeroball! We are looking forward to seeing everyone later xx

 

Day Two

After a reasonably good night's sleep the children were all bright and breezy with a good game of football going on before breakfast.  Then on to the activities.....

Mrs Sheraton said, "We have all had a great morning.  We have been rafting and playing on the giant swing and are right now in the middle of abseiling and archery.  The children are being an absolute pleasure to be with.  I am very proud of their support, manners and spirit."

 

Quotes from the children:

Ellie, "It's been absolutely fantastic."

Amy-Louise and Amy T, "It's amazing here and the staff are really friendly."

Amy T, "This has been the best experience of my life."

All children, "It's better than Bushcraft!"  "I love the giant swing."  "The cabins were nice and clean (until the boys arrived)!"  "The food is great!"

 

Day one

Everyone arrived safely and it is, of course, very hot, but plenty of water has been consumed!  Here is a taste of where the children have been this afternoon....

 

 

Quotes of the day from the children...

"It's better than I thought it would be."

"Loving it."

"So proud of Amy-Louise- her target was to get half way up the pole.... and she smashed it to the top!"

"Amy, Amy, Ellie and Millie- all made it to the top with support from each other."

"Harvey exceeded his target of half way to get to the top rung, just not quite on the pole- but so, so proud of him!"

"Jonathan exceeded his target- he struggled, but he got to the very top..... he's in one of the photos!"

Mrs Sheraton has said, " I'm impressed already with the teamwork and support the children are giving each other - without any prompting. Let's hope it stays that way! They are all looking forward to finding out what's for tea!"
