Week 3 (20.04.20 - 24.04.20)

English

This week our focus writing genre is Non-Chronological Reports.

 

By the end of this week, you will have completed your writing mission: to write a non-chronological report about a magical unicorn.

Each day, you will have an English activity to help you to work towards this. 

(You might remember writing a non-chronological report before about Floods and Droughts - we used them to create our documentaries!)

 

On Monday, you are going to read a non-chronological report and answer some questions about it. Remember to use the text and what you have read to help you - you don't need to remember all of the answers, just find them in the text!

 

On Tuesday, you are going to learn about subordinating conjunctions and subordinate clauses. There is some information for you to look at and read that will help you with your learning and then an activity for you to complete. 

 

On Wednesday, you will start to plan your non-chronological report by designing and creating your own unicorn with magical powers and labeling its special features. 

 

On Thursday, you will be planning your non-chronological report. (There is an example plan to help you.)

 

On Friday, you will be writing your non-chronological report. (There is an example one to help you.

I can't wait to see your unicorn designs and finished non-chronological reports on Class Dojo - have fun, team! 

Spellings

For the next two weeks, your spellings focus on words that include the letter strings ch, que and gue. 

Please see below for a guide on what you need to do for your spelling home learning. 

(This week is Week 1)

 

Week 1
• Monday – Thursday: In Week 1 your spelling work consists of you practising these words (using a writing pencil), using the look cover write check method. You can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if you would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on 10 of the spelling words you have been practising. Reflect on any words you found tricky – make these words/rules your focus for next week.


Week 2
• Monday – Thursday: In Week 2 your spelling work consists of you including each word in a sentence then writing the sentences in your spelling book. You can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if you would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising.

Maths

This week, your maths learning will focus on area. This is new learning - how exciting!

Miss Turner has put together some information and activities for each day to help you learn what area is and how you can calculate it. 

 

You will either need to complete the daily task in your squared Maths book or your Power Maths Book B.

It will be clear where your task is explained which book you will need. 

 

Have fun, team!

Topic (History - World War 2)

This term in History, we will be learning all about World War 2. 

 

For your activity this week, you will be creating a timeline of key events that happened during World War 2. Get creative and include dates, pictures and written information on your timeline. Make sure you put the events in chronological (time) order. You can either use the worksheet or create your own timeline. 

 

Click on the star tab below to find the History teaching slides and your activity. 

 

Before you begin your activity, go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-the-outbreak-of-world-war-2/z7d847h and watch the video. This is all about why World War 2 began so it would be good to watch before looking at the events of World War 2 and creating your timeline. 

 

Optional Creative Activity:

Design your own World War 2 poster. Click on the star tab below to find the teaching slides to help you with your poster.
