Learning today for tomorrow’s world

Cameron

Look at our own versions of our Solar System & other Space work

Wake up and get fit!   Joe Wicks does 3 live PE lessons a week- Mon/Wed/Fri.  Although we are in our lesson part way through you could always do it after, or save it and then do it tomorrow before our class zoom (that is what I am going to do!)

 

DON’T FORGET TO READ DAILY! 

 

Friday 22nd January

Maths:

 

Zoom- 9.15am

Lesson: Problem Solving Activities

Please continue with your problem solving questions from yesterday.   I am adding a couple more for today, and I have merged yesterday's and today's folders together.  

 

Don't forget to keep going with your Daily Five and complete some Mathletics. 

 

Additional Maths: Using your information about how many moons each planet has- create a graph of your choice in  2Do: 2Graph in Purple Mash.  I have set it as a 2Do- so you should find it there.  It will not become live until tomorrow morning. ( So don't worry it will be there for your lesson) 

 

 

The sheets are in the folder- 21st- 22nd  January. 

 

Literacy

Zoom; 10.30

Lesson :  I am giving you this time to continue your writing.  Hopefully yesterday you planned it out, researched more facts and really got an understanding of what it is like in space.  Today is the writing day! Enjoy.  As always, please send me your written piece when you have completed it.

 

Use  the  picture from yesterday. 

Now consider this story starter…

“Houston come in. Houston come in. This is Apollo 11. We have touched down on the surface of the moon. Over.”

“Apollo 11, this is Houston. You are clear to begin your mission. Over.”

 

Gazing around in a state of awe and wonder, the astronaut stood and admired what he saw. Outer space was a thing of pure beauty: a never-ending chasm of blackness, illuminated by stars that sparkled like beautiful diamonds.

He took a few steps forward, smiling at the joy of the feeling of weightlessness that never ceased to amaze him. Happy that his oxygen levels were high and his friends were close by, the astronaut set about his mission.

All seemed to be going well, but then the warning alarm on the ship sounded…

“Houston. Houston come in! Houston, we have a problem…”

 

Can you continue the story of the Apollo mission to the moon? 

I do not mind if you would like to use a different story starter.

OR

If you do not want to write a story – that is fine also.  You may choose to imagine that you were one of the astronauts that travelled into space and write a diary entry. 

 

It is up to you. 

 

Maybe have a quick brain break at 11.15- have another drink of water and a snack, to boost your brain for the next 45 mins.

 

 

Lunch 12-1pm

 

1-1.30pm Reading/ Spelling

 

Afternoon Learning.

 

Zoom 1.30pm – RE with Mrs Bass

 

PE- 2.30pm Mr Cunningham

 

I hope you have had a fun day of learning and that you have a good weekend.  Have fun!

Thursday  21st January 

Maths:

Zoom- 9.15am

 

Lesson: I have provided you with a range of maths problems to choose from and these can be completed over today and tomorrow.  

It is up to you what work you complete here is an idea of what is there;

  • Topical problems ( based on specific dates in January)
  • A range of maths problems cards- see how many you can do
  • Time tables sheets ( using various times times)
  • I have also attached some times tables sheets and Fluent in Five. 

 

You may wish to spend more time on Mathletics today which is fine. 

Just remember to note down exactly what you have done and share that with me- telling me how you found it.

 

The sheets are in the folder- 21st  January. 

I will add a few more tomorrow ( but I expect there is plenty to keep you going!) 

 

I would also like you to complete 10 minutes of Mathletics – this can be done now or later.

 

Aim to finish at 10.20 to give you time to have a drink and a snack.

 

Literacy

Zoom; 10.30 We will brainstorm words/ phrases that might help us with our writing today.

 

Lesson : Using the picture, 

Now consider this story starter…

 

“Houston come in. Houston come in. This is Apollo 11. We have touched down on the surface of the moon. Over.”

“Apollo 11, this is Houston. You are clear to begin your mission. Over.”

Can you continue the story of the Apollo mission to the moon? 

I do not mind if you would like to use a different story starter.

OR

If you do not want to write a story – that is fine also.  You may choose to imagine that you were one of the astronauts that travelled into space and write a diary entry. 

 

It is up to you. 

 

Maybe have a quick brain break at 11.15- have another drink of water and a snack, to boost your brain for the next 45 mins.

 

Lunch 12-1pm

 

Afternoon Learning.

 

Spellings: please be learning your spellings for this week

 

Zoom 1.30pm 

 

Science- I would like you to continue your learning from Monday. I know that most of you need time to complete your PowerPoint, and need to gather more information.  So, take this time to complete any unfinished work.

If you think you have finished, reflect on it- is it your best piece of work?  Could you add anything else? Are you proud of it? If you can say yes to all of these, and you have completed all of your previous learning, then take this time to carry out some independent research into something that interests you.

 

Don't forget to be reading as well- it is important that you continue to read to an adult regularly.

 

I hope that you have enjoyed your day of learning and that you have a good evening.

Wednesday 20th January

Maths:

Zoom- 9.15am

Lesson: We will be continuing our learning on calculating the area of shapes.

 

I would also like you to complete 10 minutes of Mathletics – this can be done now or later.

 

The sheets are in the folder- 20th January.  Select which level is for you, and don’t forget, if you have started on and it is too easy/ hard, stop and choose another one. ( cool- not confident, warm- ok, hot- confident) There are no spicy challenges at the moment- just challenges within each area)

 

Please could you make sure that you are MARKING them please.  This is essential for YOU to see if you getting them right.  Sometimes we think we are right when we aren’t…and vice versa sometimes we think we can’t do it and we can! I will continue to post the answer sheet the day after- and you must start your session by marking your answers from the day before and then completing any corrections. ( this could always be done just before the zoom session at 9.15?)

 

Make sure that you stop at about 10.15 to allow yourself have a break- drink a glass of water- get a snack.

 

Literacy:

Zoom; 10.30

Lesson :  Question time!    

 

 

Using the above picture, and with the information that you learned in Science/Literacy yesterday answer the following questions;

 

What could the warning alarm mean?

 

Can you describe what it might feel like to be walking on the moon? Think about your learning form yesterday.

 

It is extremely expensive to send a man/woman into space. It is even more expensive and dangerous to send people to the moon: it hasn’t been attempted for many years.

Do you think it is important that we try to understand more about space and the moon?

 

In the year 2013, 200’000 people from 140 different countries applied to take part in a special project: to become the first people to live on Mars in the year 2023. (two years’ time!!!)

Do you think that living in space is something that might one day be considered ‘normal’? Is it something you would like to do? Can you make a list of reasons for/against living on Mars?

 

Now think about this question again..

Do you think that living in Space might one day be considered as normal?  Would you like to live in space?

 

Your task is to either;

  • Write in detail about whether you think that living in Space may one day be considered as normal. And give reasons as to whether you would like to live in space or not. 

OR

  • Imagine that we have backtracked 8 years.  Write a letter persuading someone that you should be chosen to take part in the special project, giving specific reasons why you should be chosen.

 

Remember to;

  • Write in paragraphs.
  • Expand on your points in detail.  Give reasons why you think what you do. 
  • Use facts to support your points raised.
  • Use different words/ ways to start sentences.

 

Lunch 12-1pm

Lesson :   What do you think it would be like to be an astronaut in space?

 

Find out from one… Tim Peake: Ask an astronaut - BBC Bitesize  Click on each question  to find out more information about what it would be like.  You will need this for more literacy sessions this week- so make sure that you are listening! ( can you remember when he visited the space station in 2015?)

 

What is it like in Space? How do you stay alive in space? - BBC Bitesize

Afternoon Learning.

 

Zoom 1.30pm – During the lesson we will have a quick spelling test on the spellings that we looked at last week.  We will then look at our next spelling pattern.

 

Science:  WALT Describe what a moon is and how it orbits around a planet.

 

Q: What do we already know about the movement of the moon and the sun? Q: Who discovered these facts? Q think about our learning the other week- how many planets have moons?

Write the learning intention at the top of the page. Then write down what you know about the Moon already. 

This clip might help you get started: The Moon - KS2 Science - BBC Bitesize  What does the Moon look like and why? - KS2 Science - BBC Bitesize

Create a mind map to show what you have learned.  

 

Now consider these questions;

 

Why do we only see one face of the Moon? What might the ‘dark side’ of the Moon look like? How does the Moon remain ‘captured’ in the Earth’s orbit?

 

Your task is to: Create a Moon information leaflet which includes diagrams, photographs, information and captions.  Make sure you explain how it orbits around a planet.

 

This link will help you answer the above questions.  The Moon and its orbit around Earth - KS2 Science - BBC Bitesize

 

I hope that you enjoy your learning for today.  Work hard!

I hope that you have a good evening- see you tomorrow smiley

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.

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

Online Learning 26 & 27th November

Holiday Homework suggestions.

 

As promised, here are some suggestions of what you could do if you are bored and fancy a challenge in the holidays. 

 

All of the learning during lockdown is in each section, in a word document labelled with that weeks date on i.e.- Monday 29th June- Friday 3rd July.  This word document will then be in the section labelled 3rd July.   Please look back at any previous learning that you think you may have missed.

The Art and Music which was here is in the 6th July folder. 

 

Maths

 

  • Revisit previous sections of maths that we have covered during lockdown- are there any sheets that you haven’t completed?  Maybe you  didn’t do the extension sheet at the time...now is the time you could do it.
  • Work through the packs that I sent in an email to your parents.
  • There are some transition packs on here that you could work through.
  • There are some SATs style questions.
  • There are some REALLY useful maths sheets in the 'More Holiday Homework' section- these will prepare you for starting back in September. 
  • What about these maths challenges-

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​​​​​​​

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!

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!"
