Week 5 (04.05.20 - 08.05.20)

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 WW2.

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

 

On Monday, you are going to read a non-chronological report about VE Day 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 apostrophes. There are some interactive activities and information for you to use and look at on BBC Bitesize that will help you with your learning and then some activities for you to complete. 

 

On Wednesday, you are going to carry out research into particular WW2 topics. This will help you plan your non-chronological report. 

 

On Thursday, you will be writing the introduction and the first paragraph for your non-chronological report.  

 

On Friday, you will be writing the final paragraphs for your non-chronological report.

Once you have finished, you might want to add some images or a colourful heading using bubble writing to your non-chronological report - get creative! 

I can't wait to see your finished non-chronological report on your portfolio on Dojo! 

Spellings

This week, your spellings focus on words that use the letter strings ei, eigh and ey, and make the sound a. 

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 Time. This is new learning - how exciting! 

Miss Turner has put together some information and activities for each day to help you with your learning. I have also recorded some teaching videos to help you so make sure you watch these before completing your activity. (It will tell you in the task when you need to watch the videos to help.) 

 

Have fun, team!

Topic (History - World War 2)

 

On Friday (8th May 2020), it will be exactly 75 years since VE Day. 

VE Day - or 'Victory in Europe Day' - marks the day towards the end of World War Two (WW2) when fighting against Germany in Europe came to an end.

On 8 May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill made an announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before.

This week, your activities are all about celebrating and remembering VE Day and those people who lived through the Second World War.
