ISOLATION WORK

 

If you are isolating (and are well enough to complete some work) please find some work to complete and send to me on Seesaw.  I have put a selection of stuff you may wish to have a go at and you can pick and choose from.

 

You could also ensure your homework, spellings and mental maths is completed and that you do some reading as much as you can too.

 

I look forward to seeing you soon!  Many thanks! 

ENGLISH

MATHS

 

Please find a booklet below to work through.  There are lots of different things to work out and have a go at.

 

You can also continue to practise your times tables on any of the games you usually.  There are also plenty of games to play on on the Topmarks website.

 

I have also attached a few mental maths booklets to have a go at where the idea is to work the calculations out as much as you possibly can in you head!

 

Good luck!

TOPIC

 

Take your time to have a go at the below.  Use the information below to create a Powerpoint presentation of your own!  I have attached my own example.

Week commencing 14th February

 

If you are isolating this week (and are well enough to complete some work) please find some work for this week for you to complete below and send to me on Seesaw.  Many thanks!  I may add some extra maths/English activities if I receive enough work, but hopefully this should be more than enough to keep you going.  You could also ensure your homework is completed and that you do some reading as much as you can.

ENGLISH

 

This week, we are having a reading focus in class (hence all the reading activities below).  I may add some other materials later in the week (depending on how we go on in class).  

 

1) Story reading comprehension - Please open the reading comprehension from w/c 31st January.  We have completed the Sharks section in class.  I would like you to look at the story (George and the Giant Tortoise) and answer questions on this.

 

2) Ancient Egyptian reading comprehensions - Please find below a variety of different reading comprehensions about things to choose from and have a go at.  These are all at different levels so you can choose your level of difficulty too.

 

(With these tasks to save printing, you can look at them on the screen, although obviously this is not preferred.  Some of the questions may require you to join boxes in the answers so you can just verbalise these answers if necessary).

MATHS

 

Below are various fraction activities to complete.

 

To find a fraction of a number or amount, divide by the bottom of the fraction and times by the top.  You could also do sharing plates where you split the plate into the number of sections (by looking at the bottom of the fraction) and circling the number of sections (by looking at the top of the fraction).

 

If you didn't look at the unit and non-unit fractions from last week, please do so!

 

I will be putting together a Maths assessment booklet later in the week that I will also put on here.  I will explain more about this when I post it.

TOPIC

 

1) Egyptian Bread - This week we are going to be making Ancient Egyptian-style bread.  See recipe below if you want to do this.

 

2) Amulets - We are going to be designing and making amulets out of salt dough.  Look at the attached information about amulets and a recipe for salt dough.

 

3) Gods and Goddesses - We are going to be looking at the all-important gods and goddesses this week in class.  Attached is some information to have a look at.  Then you can do some fact cards.  If you don't have a printer or want to save paper and ink, just use the attached template to guide you!

Week commencing 7th February

 

If you are isolating this week (and are well enough to complete some work) please find some work for this week for you to complete below and send to me on Seesaw.  Many thanks!  I may add some extra maths/English activities if I receive enough work, but hopefully this should be more than enough to keep you going.  You could also ensure your homework is completed and that you do some reading as much as you can.

MATHS

 

1) Please complete any fraction work below from last week.

 

I am attaching some other fraction activities and information below.  

2) Ordering unit fractions

 

Choose "ordering unit fractions" on the game below.

 

Unit fractions are those that have a 1 on the top (on the numerator).  The bottom of the fraction (denominator) shows how many parts an object is split into.  The more parts the object is split into, the greater the number of pieces there are so the BIGGER the denominator is.  Because the denominator is split into more pieces, you will receive much smaller pieces of your cake, pizza etc.

 

There is a short video attached that might help you to see this visually which is helpful with fraction work!

 

There are some activities below related to unit fractions.

3) Ordering and comparing fractions with the same denominator

 

Please find a Powerpoint below to explain this as well as some activities to complete.

ENGLISH

 

1) Letter to thank museum

 

First of all, I would like you to write a letter of thanks to The Silk Heritage Museum for our trip.  I have attached my own version below.  Focus on the layout of the letter.

2) Beegu story questions

 

Below, I recorded a video last year of me reading a beautiful story we are going to look at in class.  Please follow the instructions of what to do below.

Beegu Story

3) Summary of the story Beegu

 

Use the picture on the Powerpoint below to help you if needed. Your job is to do a recount/summary of what happened in the Beegu story.  I have done my own version and a checklist.  You don't have to do anywhere near as much detail as me but I hope it gives you some ideas!

TOPIC - MUMMIFICATION

 

The Ancient Egyptian afterlife was very important in their beliefs.  An important process was mummification.  It may make some of you feel a little bit squeamish but it shows what their beliefs were and that they had such respect about death/the afterlife.  Below are videos/information about this process.  You may decide to complete the canopic jars activity too.

 

I have attached some templates where you might write down the process of mummification and draw pictures in the boxes or you could do in the form of a booklet.  If you don’t have a printer, you could simply write out and/or draw pictures.  DO NOT make any pictures look gruesome and remember to make your instructions detailed and interesting.  Remember: A catchy, “How to” title, perhaps a “You will need” list, numbered steps with imperative verbs and Mrs D’s favourite (drum roll please…) TIME LANGUAGE! 

You may use the link below to help you with your instructions but don’t just directly copy!

 

Can you write down 10 fantastic facts you have learnt about mummification that you didn’t know before?  You could do a poster showing me this.

 

You may also have a go at drawing a mummy using the link below or copy from any pictures.

Week commencing 31st January

 

If you are isolating this week (and are well enough to complete some work) please find some work for this week for you to complete below and send to me on Seesaw.  Many thanks!  I may add some extra maths/English activities if I receive enough work, but hopefully this should be more than enough to keep you going.  You could also ensure your homework is completed and that you do some reading as much as you can.

THIS WEEK IS OUR SCHOOL TRIP SO SOME OF OUR ACTIVITIES IN CLASS WILL RELATE TO THIS.  I am really sorry if you are missing out on this and will plan another trip for the summer term.

Some of the activities below will take a while to complete so I have put more than enough for you to work on this week so please don't try to cram in to get the work completed.  Just do what seems reasonable each day. wink

MATHS

Pictograms

 

Here are some pictograms and questions to have a go at.  Please add to the key for the computer games one that each circle = 2.

 

Think carefully about your answers/carefully work them out.  Some of the weather questions may involve a little bit more thinking which I am sure you can do/discuss.

Fractions

We are looking at shapes and thinking about what fraction of the shape is shaded or shading in that fraction for ourselves.  I am attaching some shapes that might ask you to shade an amount in or to say what is shaded.  Remember: the top of the fraction (numerator) tells you have many pieces are shaded/need shading and the bottom (denominator) tells you the total number of pieces there are.

 

Examples:

1/4 means to shade in 1 out of 4 pieces.

2/3 means to shade in 2 out of 3 pieces.

If 1 piece is shaded in out of 8 pieces, then 1/8 is shaded in.

If 3 pieces out of 4 are shaded in then 3/4 are shaded.

 

There are some trickier ones attached too to think about if you want to attempt them.  For some of these, you may have to imagine some of the lines are not there or draw some on for yourself.  Remember: the harder ones are tricky so you don't have to do them unless you think you can!

 

ENGLISH

Please ensure you are reading at home whenever you can!

Spellings - adding "ly" suffix where root word doesn't change.

Please find some activities related to the spellings the children will be tested on in class this week.

Reading comprehension practise

 

Below are three texts to look at - one is fiction, one is non-fiction and one is a poem.  Read each one then answer the questions.  This will take a while, so take your time and you do not have to do all at once as there is a lot!!!

 

Some of the questions are more straightforward than others.  If you can print the texts, remember to underline or highlight any key information.

 

If you don't want to print the answer booklet or can't, then just write the answers down.  If it involves filling out a table just write your answers in order or if it involves joining up lines, then say the answer verbally to a grown up.

TOPIC

 

We are looking at daily life in Ancient Egypt.

 

Look at the attached pictures that show what was happening.  What is happening? Why do you think that?  (Use the Talking Frames Activity Sheet if you like).


Look at the table in the information below.  Use this to compare life in Ancient Egypt with today's having discussed/looked at the pictures of the different scenes.

Week commencing 24th January

 

If you are isolating this week (and are well enough to complete some work) please find some work for this week for you to complete below and send to me on Seesaw.  Many thanks!  I may add some extra maths/English activities if I receive enough work, but hopefully this should be more than enough to keep you going.  You could also ensure your homework is completed.

Number pyramids

 

Over the course of several days we will be looking at some number pyramids.  You complete these by adding two numbers together and writing the answer to this in the block above.  Attached are some activities in relation to these and an example of a completed one.  These start where you have to simply add the numbers together to get to the top, then they become trickier and involve missing numbers.

Egyptian Numbers

 

I thought it would be good to get your problem-solving juices flowing even more and for you to have a go at the attached activity to do with Egyptian numbers.  

Tally chart/frequency table

 

We are starting to do statistics in class.  This is where information/data is gathered and presented in different ways.  We then look at this data to answer different questions.

 

Attached is some data.  Your job is to put this into a tally/frequency table.  (I have attached a template below).  Then can you answer the questions.

ENGLISH

 

Please ensure you are reading at home and please focus on your understanding of the book that you are reading like we do in Guided Reading in class.

 

Questions to ask Ancient Egyptians

I would like you to make a list of 10 questions that you would like to ask an Ancient Egyptian should they be able to answer your questions.  These questions can be about anything at all, from food and drink, to death and Gods, from things to do with the Pharaohs/Tutankhamun to what homes were like.

Please use any question words carefully, ensure the question words in particular are spelt correctly and that you remember a question mark. Please ensure this is in your neatest handwriting.

Non-verbal and verbal instructions for aliens

 

Imagine an alien has landed on Earth and it is your job to show and tell them how to do something.  Attached are some suggested activities you may show them.

 

Your first job is to show (using pictures/freeze frames) the different stages of what you would do.  I have attached my own freeze frames on how to order a pizza so you may wish to take your own pictures of one of the suggested activities and send it to me.

 

You will then go on to write instructions out on what to do.  Again, I have attached my own set.  Please use TIME LANGUAGE to help guide the alien through what to do.  There are some ideas for time language you might use on the video below and you should already know some from class.

The Time Adverbials Song

Week commencing 17th January

 

If you are isolating this week (and are well enough to complete some work) please find some work for this week for you to complete below and send to me on Seesaw.  Many thanks!  I may add some extra maths/English activities if I receive enough work, but hopefully this should be more than enough to keep you going.  You could also ensure your homework is completed.

 

MATHS

 

1) If you have not done the 3-D shape activity below, please complete this first.  With 3-D shapes, we need to think about how many vertices (corners) they have, how many edges (these can be curved or straight) and how many faces (these can be curved or flat).

 

Have a go at cutting out and matching the different shapes to their names and properties.  Or if you don't have a printer, you could write the name of the shape, have a go at sketching it and write down its properties without looking.

2) We are looking at lines of symmetry this week in class. 

 

Below are some different activities to have a go at and some useful pieces of information.  You may be asked to complete the reflection in order to make the object symmetrical, draw lines of symmetry on or say if the shape/picture is symmetrical or not.

This contains some useful information.  You obviously don't have to do any of the suggested activities.

You can have a play with making reflective symmetrical patterns on here horizontally, vertically or diagonally.  You could also have a go at drawing a mirror line in your Maths homework book and doing your own symmetrical patterns too.

3) We will be doing this next week now so don't worry about completing this on Friday.

 

We are starting to do statistics in class.  This is where information/data is gathered and presented in different ways.  We then look at this data to answer different questions.

 

I will gather some data for your to work at the end of the week.

 

Your job is to put this into a tally/frequency table.  (I have attached a template below).  Then can you answer the attached questions.  These start easier then become trickier.

ENGLISH

 

1) Please complete the homophone dictionary work below if you have not done so already.  If you have a dictionary, I would like you to look up and write out the meanings of the different homophones.  If you don’t, please use an online dictionary to help you, such as the one below.

2) As part of your spellings this week, we are looking at words that have the long "a" sound but have an "ei" spelling such as weight.  Please look at the information below and complete any of the activities that you fancy in order to help you.  One of the activities I would like you to complete is the handwriting one.

3) Design an alien of your own.  

I would like you to design a friendly looking alien of your own and do a fact file about it.  There is a sheet attached that you can use as your template.  Remember: your alien needs to be a friendly one!!!

Alien factsheet

Here's a video I recorded during the previous lockdown that I thought may come in handy for completing this activity!

4) Alien dialogue.

You are going to imagine that two aliens are having a conversation having landed on Planet Earth.  I have attached some ideas as to what they might decide to talk about.  Year 3 have shown they are good at dialogue and we have practised this a lot.  Remember your speech mark sandwich and the golden rule: new line, new speaker.

I have also attached my own conversation for your reference/to give you some ideas.

TOPIC

 

This week in class, we are looking at Ancient Egyptian landmarks.  

 

You will be looking at Egyptian Landmarks this week and be doing some tasks in relation to this.

 

Map Work

By now you will know I am a fan of map work and you have shown yourselves to be skilled in this area.

For our topic work this week, I would like you to locate some landmarks found in Egypt on a map.   I have attached some you can choose from which have different levels of difficulty, although you may also draw your own big map and/draw pictures of each landmark yourself.

 

Google Earth is a great way to look at the different landmarks if you want to.  If you type the landmark into Google and type “Google Earth” you can have a good play on there for free and do not have to download Google Earth.

Week commencing 10th January

 

MATHS

 

If you are isolating this week (and are well enough to complete some work) please find some work for this week for you to complete below and send to me on Seesaw.  Many thanks!  I may add some extra maths/English activities if I receive enough work, but hopefully this should be more than enough to keep you going.  I am also setting homework from this week, so this is something you can be completing at home too please.

 

1) This week in Maths, we are doing some more work on perimeter so please complete any of the activities in the “Extra perimeter work” section from last week.

 

2) You may also wish to complete the “Measuring each other” table I have attached using the relevant equipment such as a ruler or tape measure.

3) We are going to be looking at 3-D shapes and their properties.  Please find explanations/work below.  How many 3-D shapes can you already name?

 

With 3-D shapes, we need to think about how many vertices (corners) they have, how many edges (these can be curved or straight) and how many faces (these can be curved or flat).

 

Have a go at cutting out and matching the different shapes to their names and properties.  Or if you don't have a printer, you could write the name of the shape, have a go at sketching it and write down its properties without looking.

ENGLISH

 

1) We are going to be continuing to look at homophones in class this week.  This will be linked to your spelling homework…  If you have a dictionary, I would like you to look up and write out the meanings of the different homophones.  If you don’t, please use an online dictionary to help you, such as the one below.

 

2) We are also going to describe different aliens in class.  I have attached some pictures to describe.  You don’t have to print them out, as your description should make it obvious which alien you are describing.  I would like you to make sure you are using the best adjectives (describing words) that you can. You may also use prepositions to start your sentences.  I have attached an example of my own for your reference.

3) We are looking at different types of sentences in class. Below is a video explaining this.  Once you have watched it, attached are some sentences about goslings that Scarlett and I saw a while ago.  Please write down what sort of sentence they are.

There is an additional activity attached should you wish to complete it.

The Statement, Command, Question, Exclamation Sentences Song

TOPIC

 

Please complete any topic work from last week before looking at this weeks.

 

In class, we are making Viking longboats as part of our Design Technology.  This will obviously be different to how you are able to do this at home as we have researched and talked about how to design in detail.  We will also be working in groups to do this which I know isn’t possible at home.  There are plenty of ideas on the Internet if you type in "How to make a Viking Longboat KS2" or you may come up with an idea of your own.  The boat needs to look realistic like a long boat would, such as having a striped sail (perhaps red and white), having a dragon’s head/hail, as well as oars to power the boat and shields along the sides of the boat.

 

Week commencing 3rd January

 

If you are isolating this week (and are well enough to complete some work) please find some work for this week for you to complete below and send to me on Seesaw.  Many thanks!

MATHS

 

This week, we are looking at the perimeter of different shapes.  This is the distance around the sides of a 2D shape when all the sides are added together.  We are starting off by calculating the perimeter by adding the sides together.  Sometimes not all the sides need to marked on.  For example, on a square only one side needs to be given as all sides are the same, or on a rectangle only two sides need to be given as opposite sides are the same.

 

Then we are moving on to measuring the sides before adding them up.  

 

What is perimeter?

Watch from 1:30 to the end

Calculate perimeter

Watch from 1:22 to the end

EXTRA PERIMETER ACTIVITIES

 

There are a variety of perimeter activities you can choose from and work through below that include a variety of shapes and problems to think about.

ENGLISH

 

First of all, please could you tell me your holiday news by writing a recount.  I have attached my version to give you some ideas on how to structure your own.  Please ensure you use time language to link your ideas like I have and use the most impressive vocabulary you can.  I have done about Christmas Day, but it doesn't have to be about that.

Ancient Egypt

Read the information about Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics below.  I would then like you to write out some of your own factual information about these in your own words.

 

If you wanted to, you could use the same or similar subheadings to help you structure the information using the information sheet attached.

 

 

Alien introduction

 

We are going to be learning about aliens in class over the coming weeks.  Please find some questions regarding these attached.  I would like you to write down your answers to the questions about aliens in as much detail as you can, justifying your answers.  Watch the video attached.  Hopefully this will give you a greater insight and thought into the whole concept of aliens!

 

Do Aliens Exist? | COLOSSAL QUESTIONS

For as long as humans have existed, one specific mystery has inspired more curiosity than all others: are we alone in the universe, or is there alien life in...

TOPIC

 

Have a look at the hieroglyphics mat below and write your name out.  You could have a go at writing some different messages.  You could even make some papyrus of your own using the instructions below and write messages onto this!
