Class 5 - Home Learning - Friday 22nd May

Good morning and happy Friday!

This morning the weather doesn’t seem quite as bright as the rest of the week. In fact, the weather is starting to seem very windy. Today I would like you to think about the wind and our presentation. Using this pack ( Download wind-on-the-hill), your activity today is to read through the poem about wind and present it in your own fantastic handwriting. Use this to help ( Download Cursive )

Strong_wind

You can use the guides and sheets provided or present it on whatever paper you like. You may even write your own or another poem about the wind. The only catch is it must be written in your wonderful handwriting styles.

Shared Work

Today, I began to build a new nest - my old one got destroyed in the storm. I found a wonderful garden with lots of leaves and sticks. It also had a field behind it. I found a lot of strong sticks and a few leaves and I pulled up a bit of grass. Then, carrying as much as I could, I went in search of a good tree to build my nest in. After I’d found the perfect tree, I built my nest. It was quite weak and when I got inside, it crushed under my weight. I went back to the field and found some mud and a bit of animal poo. I then flew back to my nest. I had to remake it because it had fallen apart while I’d been gone. Adding the mud and poo worked really well because it didn’t crush under my weight and after I’d flown around in search of food, it hadn’t fallen apart. I’m really proud of my new nest, it’s much better than the old one, maybe the best in the world, in my opinion. 

An diary entry by Millie (Can you guess the animal?)

 

May 20th, 2020

This morning after I woke up, I went to the toilet, as I was desperate. After I came back in, I was hungry, so my mummy fed me, it was really yummy and I wanted more, because I am a greedy dog and all I want to do is eat!

After breakfast I went for a nap with my sister Mollie, I loved it, it was amazing, and I had a really good dream. Later I played with my good, amazing big brother Leo. It was fun we played tug with a stick and were pretending to fight. When the postman arrived me and Leo went crazy and started barking at him, I love doing this it is so much fun.

After lunch I played with Mollie, my sissy, it was cool. After I was so tired, I had to have another nap before I played again and had to go outside because I was desperate for the loo. Before I knew it, it was tea time, I ate it quickly and begged my mummy for more. In the evening I went to watch a movie with mummy and daddy before I went to bed.

A diary entry by Mollie (I think I can guess the animal here!)

 

Archie had been out in the wild for almost one whole week and he was very hungry. Then all ofa sudden he stumbled across this odd machine thingy, would it take him home? He definitelyhoped it would. Well he was about to find out. He stepped inside slowly, then he carefullypressed a few buttons... Then all of a sudden there was a bright green flash of light. It was soblinding that when he closed his eyes he could still see it. Then when he opened his eyes herealised that he was in the same location, but it definitely didn’t look like Sepilok, there werehundreds upon thousands of dinosaurs! He, Archie had gone back in time! Archie turned aroundquickly so he could get back in the time machine but the time machine had gone. He was lost.

Class 5 - Home Learning - Thursday 21st May

Good Morning,

Today we are thinking about what makes the perfect picnic. Look at this activity ( Download planning-the-best-picnic-ever). Use the sheet provide as a guide to your activity, but do not feel you have to complete your plan on the sheets. If you would prefer to make a powerpoint, use or own paper and get creative or even use a word processor, that’s ok.

Perfectpicnicheader_630x420

There are lots of things to consider when making the perfect picnic so make sure you think carefully about each. The picnic needs to be fun for everyone so make sure you include something all your guests will enjoy, whether it’s their favourite food or a game they enjoy.

I look forward to seeing your ‘perfect picnics’

Class 5 - Home Learning - Wednesday 20th May

Good Morning,

Yesterday we looked at using nature and the outdoors to create some fantastic art work. Today, we are going to try to use nature to inspire some creative writing. First, go out into your garden and find a calm spot to watch and wait. Try to spot signs of life; a squirrel running up a tree, a bird hopping onto a fence post or even signs of a hedgehog from the previous night.

Your challenge is to write a diary entry from the perspective of an animal of your choosing. Remember to include the animal’s thoughts and emotions throughout your diary entry. See if you can include some of the writing features you have learnt so far;

  • Relative clauses
  • Modal verbs
  • Fronted adverbials
  • Varied sentence length

Good Morning,

Today we are continuing to think about the outdoors and looking at a famous artist. Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who produces artwork using natural materials (such as flowers, mud, ice, leaves, twigs, pebbles, boulders, snow, thorns, bark, grass and pine cones). Follow this link to watch a short bbc clip about his working – https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zh4wmp3

AndyGoldsworthy015.crop_1053x790_289 83.preview IMG_2185-1024x725

Your challenge today is to create your own Goldsworthy inspired work using things you find in your garden. Get creative, whilst also thinking about the colour and tone of different objects and how you can create a blending effect through their placement. Download nature-photo-frames-activity

Class 5 - Home Learning - Monday 18th May

Good Morning, 

Thank you for all of the fantastic work you have been sending in, please keep it up. This week’s theme is the outdoors. Today, can you  think about your favourite place to be amongst nature. This could be a seat at the end of your garden or it could be the top of a mountain in Nepal. The only condition is you have to have been there at least once, and you have to have found it relaxing. 

  Llyn-Cau-from-Cadair-Idris

I think mine is Cadair Idris, in the Snowdonia National Park. Once you have decided upon a place can you create a poster advertising that place. Remember to include some persuasive language and you could even draw out your chosen location using a picture as guide. You could even write down interesting facts or information about it, to draw the reader in. I look forward to seeing your amazing adverts.

Mrs Mason’s Monday Morning Message

Good morning children. I do hope you and your families are all keeping well. I miss seeing each and every one of you in our school every day and especially your smiles and hearing you laugh, play and learn together on our playgrounds and in our classrooms.

You have probably heard on the news and from your parents that some of you will soon be able to start back to school and that lots of people are arguing about this! At the moment there is lots to talk about so that we can all feel safe but I will be writing to both you and your parents as soon as I have more details. Until I can do that I don’t want you to worry but to keep working hard at home and enjoying this lovely sunshine.

Due to the lovely weather our theme this week is  ‘All things Outdoors!’ We want you to spend as much time as possible learning outside. Your teachers have planned lots of exciting activities for you and your family to get involved in because we know that some of you learn far better when you are outdoors! Also this week it is ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ and being outside, keeping fit and healthy also helps you to keep happy too!

During the past few weeks while we were only allowed out once a day for exercise I went to Shipley Park many times on my bike. It was so beautiful to hear the birds sing and watch the flowers grow, especially as it was so quiet while everyone was at home. I took lots of photographs to share with you ! I hope you enjoy looking at them on this week’s little film. See if you can spot somewhere you have been in our wonderful country park. I’m sure you will enjoy this week’s song too. Make sure you sing along …… just like in our Monday morning Assembly!

 

The Great Smalley Bake Off - Week 2!

Once again you have amazed us with your baking skills! Thank you so much for all your efforts and sending in your photographs. Please continue to share your bakes over the next week using your class email, ready for another gallery next Friday.

Have a lovely weekend xx

Class 5 - Home Learning - Friday 15th May

Good Morning Class 5,

On Wednesday, we looked at the Engima Machine and Alan Turing. Another form of code used to communicate during both World War One and World War Two was Morse Code. Morse code is named after Samuel Morse, who helped invent it. It is not used as much today as it was in the 19th and 20th centuries. Morse code is a type of code that is used to send telegraphic information using rhythm. Morse code uses dots and dashes to show the alphabet letters, numbers, punctuation and special characters of a given message. When messages are sent by Morse code, dots are short beeps or clicks or flashes, and dashes are longer ones.

Today your challenge is to use the information above to crack this Morse Code message Download Morse Code Challenge. Take your time and please email me with your 'cracked' messages.
