Today is our PE day. I would like you to do some form of exercise.

 Maybe you have Just Dance at home that you could have a go at.

Click on the link below and have a go at joining in with one of Joe Wicks PE sessions These were recorded last week. There are three different sessions which were recorded last week. If you want to get super fit you can do all three sessions. You might want to do one today, one tomorrow and one over the weekend. You can choose the best time for you.

Here is your music lesson for today.

There is a very famous song that was written years ago about LS Lowry and his work. It is called Matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs.  It was written and sung by Brian Burke and Michael Coleman. They also had some local children singing on the track.

Click on the link to hear the song.

 

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmopSVOMSsU

 

 I would like you to have a go at singing and learning the song. It would be lovely to sing it all together when we get back to school.

You will notice at the end of the song the children have been split into two groups and are singing two different parts, this is called singing in a round.

He painted Salford's smokey tops
On cardboard boxes from the shops
And parts of ancoats where I used to play
I'm sure he once walked down our street
'Cause he painted kids who had nowt on their feet
The clothes we wore had all seen better days

Now they said his works of art were dull
No room all round, the walls are full
But Lowry didn't care much anyway
They said he just paints cats and dogs
And matchstalk men in boots and clogs
And Lowry said that's just the way they'll stay

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin
When London started calling him
To come on down and wear the old flat cap
They said tell us all about your ways
And all about them Salford days
Is it true you're just an ordinary chap?

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

Now Lowry's hang upon the wall
Beside the greatest of them all
And even the Mona Lisa takes a bow
This tired old man with hair like snow
Told northern folk it's time to go
The fever came and the good lord mopped his brow

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits
Outside them pearly gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and dogs

 

Wednesday 20th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. Great to see so many of you on our zoom lesson again yesterday.

Well done for all the work you are doing so far.

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

Today we are going to be comparing and ordering numbers.

Watch the video. This will help you with your maths questions for today.

Click on the link below.

 

https://vimeo.com/454736010

 

Once you have watched the video, have a go at answering the questions below.

Here is your English activity for today.

Watch this video lesson about a clip from the film Oliver Twist.

 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-analyse-a-film-clip-and-generate-vocabulary-6nh3gr?activity=video&step=1

 

Now you have done the activities on the lesson, I would like you to write some more sentences like the ones you did in the lesson.

 I would like you to also write the sentences you did in the lesson too. You can go back and watch the video again if you need to.

Remember to edit and improve your writing just like you would in school. Check your punctuation, are your capital letters and full stops in the right places. Have you included commas in between your adjectives and to show your clauses?

Start your sentences in interesting ways. Think carefully about your vocabulary choices. Make your sentences as interesting as possible.

 

Here is your Science activity for today.

This week in science we are going to be looking at gears. A gear is a wheel that has teeth. The teeth are used to turn other gears.

A big gear will make a smaller gear turn faster so a small force can have a bigger effect.

Watch the video clip about gears.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKjo8Usp21k

 

Now have a go at answering the questions that are on the two sheets. (I'm really sorry that the quality of the pictures is not very good - do the best you can!)

 

1. Look at the pictures and write either clockwise or anticlockwise to say which direction the last gear is turning. The first one has been done for you.

 

2. Copy the paragraph and write in the correct word.  Underline the word you have added.

 

3. Write the correct answer.

 

4. Write the name of the objects that use gears.

 

5c)  Write the sentence and fill in the missing word.

 

Have a go at the challenge, some of you might have Lego that has gears. You can take a picture of what you make and  email it to me.

 

Tuesday 19th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. I hope you are all ok and coping well with all your work.

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

Today we are still working on place value and we are going to be concentrating on numbers up to 10,000.

Watch the video below, this will help you with your questions today.

https://vimeo.com/452570425

Now have a go at answering the questions.

 

Here is your English activity for today

Today we are going to do some grammar activities.

Watch this video clip about exploring word class. Identifying what each of the different words are within the sentence.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-explore-word-class-68tkjc

Now have a look at the sentences below. Copy them out and highlight the nouns in blue, the adverbs in purple, the verbs in green, the adjectives in pink and prepositions in grey.

 

  1. Desperate to eat and fighting through hunger, they waited patiently with their hands clasped together on their knees.
  2. Bellowing, the master, who was stood beside the cook, said hid prayers to the prison like hall of children.
  3. Starving, the emaciated boys waited in line with their tummies rumbling like an earthquake.
  4.  

Now think back to the work on clauses.

Remember that a main clause has a subject and a verb and it makes sense on its own.

A subordinate clause gives extra information but it doesn’t make sense on its own.

 

For example: Hilary told Alex that she couldn’t come.

The main clause is’ Hilary told Alex’

The subordinate clause is ‘that she couldn’t come.’

 

For each of these sentences, highlight the main clause in blue and the subordinate clause in pink.

 

  1. Darius went to the shop because he needed some milk.
  2. Provided that it doesn’t start to rain, they’ll play outside.
  3. Unless you know the answer, we’ll ask Richard.
  4. They climbed the tree even though I thought it was a bad idea.

 

Add a word from the box and your own clause to complete the sentence below.

Only use each word from the box once.

 

When       after      although     until     before

 

 
  1. We need to wait...
  2. Eleanor has a shower ....
  3. Doris wants to get a dog....
  4. Sophie eats her breakfast.....

Topic activity.

For your topic lesson today I would like you to finish your brochure about Salford Quays and it's amenities.

 

I would like you to design and make a brochure for tourists promoting all the things that Salford Quays has to offer.

I would like you to do this over several pages.

 

Include as much information as you can. Check and edit your work, make it look as appealing as possible, the aim is to attract people to come and visit Salford Quays.

Here is your RE activity for today.

 

Thinking about Jesus as a teacher, today I would like you to start by watching the clip below, it is the story of The Good Samaritan.

It is one of Jesus’ famous stories from the bible.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSfm2xdKau4

 

Now I would like you to think about and reflect on the following questions.

Why did Jesus tell this story?
What did Jesus want people to learn from this story?
Does the story have more than one message? Why?
What behaviour does this story challenge?
If you acted on the message of this story what might you do differently in the future?

What does this story teach about God? What does this story teach us about how to live our lives?

 

Now have a go at answering the questions.  There are 10 questions.

 

  1. Why do you think that Jesus told this story to the people?

    2. What was the important lesson that Jesus wanted the people to learn from               this story?

    3. Does the story have more than one message? Why?

    4. What behaviour does this story challenge?

    5. If you acted on the message of this story, what might you do differently in               the future?

    6. What does this story teach us about God?

    7. What does this story teach us about how we should live our lives?

    8. Can you think of a time when you have been like the priest and the Levi and                just walked on by or ignored a situation when you knew you could have helped?         Tell me about your experience, what happened and what did you do? – How did           it make you feel? Did you realise the consequences of your actions at the time?

    9. Now can you think of a time when you have behaved like the Good Samaritan,            who did you help and how did you help them? How did you feel? Did you realise          the importance of your act of kindness?

    10.How could you now live your life differently to be more like the Good                        Samaritan?

 

 

Now have a look at this clip of The Sower.  It is the first story on the clip. It is another of Jesus’ stories. Once you have watched the story I would like you to think and reflect - which kind of person are you?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nhuf9jKQMU

Here is another popular story called the Wise and Foolish builders for you to watch.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP_nFKK8rIY

 

And finally watch this short story about the Lost Sheep. These stories remind us that God loves us and looks out for us even in times of hardship.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azTzzZWK1sk

 

Monday 18th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend. Well done for all the hard work you have done so far, you are doing a great job. laughyes

 

Here is your maths activity for this week.

Today we are going to be practising our place value, looking at 1000’s, 100’s, 10’s and 1’s.

Watch the video clip which will help you with today’s lesson.

https://vimeo.com/452570090

Remember for the practise questions at the beginning, pause the video to give yourself time to work out the answers. You can then press play again and check your answers to see if you were right.

For number 4, you will need to tell me how many of each block you would need for example, 5 thousand blocks, 2 hundred blocks, 4 ten sticks and 5 one cubes.

For number 6a, tell me how many thousand blocks, hundred blocks, ten sticks and one cubes you would need.

For 6b tell me which counters you will need and how many of each counter.

Here is your English activity

Watch this video lesson about the book Oliver Twist. The book was written by the author Charles Dickens who was an author in the Victorian era.

 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-understand-the-historical-context-of-oliver-twist-75jkgd

You are going to produce a mind map to show all the information you have learned in this lesson about Oliver Twist.

If you prefer you can write your answers using bullet points but please write in full sentences. 

Over the next few lessons we will be doing some writing about the story of Oliver Twist.

 

Here is your Topic for today and tomorrow.

Today we are continuing with our topic of Locks and Quays. We are going to focus on Salford Quays.

Watch the video clip about the amenities at Salford Quays. You can watch this several times. I would also like you to do your own research to find out extra information.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs0XHrb86Mk

I would like you to design and make a brochure for tourists promoting all the things that Salford Quays has to offer.

I would like you to do this over several pages.

I would like you to do this today and then to finish it tomorrow.

Include as much information as you can. Check and edit your work, make it look as appealing as possible, the aim is to attract people to come and visit Salford Quays.

Friday 15th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. I hope you have enjoyed your work this week and I hope you are enjoying our Guided reading story. Final day before the well deserved weekend. laughyes

Well done for all your hard work so far!

 

Here is your maths activity for today.

Today is minute maths day. Have a look at these questions, today all the questions are about rounding to the nearest 100. 

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper.

You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time. This week you are rounding each of the numbers to the nearest 100.

Remember you need to look at the number in the 10’s column.

Remember the rule if the digit is 5 or more then you round the hundreds column to the next hundred.

If the digit in the ten’s column is less than 5 then the hundred’s column stays the same. For example the first question is 281.

8 is in the ten’s column. 8 is more than 5 so we need to round the hundred’s column up to 300.

For the 3rd question 823.   2 is in the ten’s column. 2 is less than 5 so the hundred’s column stays the same. 823 rounded to the nearest 100 is 800.

Follow the same method for all these questions.

 

Today I would also like you to log on to Mathletics and also to TT Rockstars to practise your times tables.

Here is your English activity for today.

First of all, here is your new spelling list.

This week’s words all have the suffix - able

Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t know what they mean then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Learn these words throughout the week. I have also put them onto Spelling shed for you. I will test you on these spellings in our zoom session next Friday.

Good morning Year 5.

Well done for all the work you have been doing so far, great job, keep it up!

So lovely to see so many of you on the zoom lessons every day too. Fingers crossed my computer is working ok today - yesterday was a disaster for me, my laptop kept freezing but luckily it worked ok for our zoom! laughyes

 

Here is your Maths work for today.

Watch the video about interpreting data. Today we are learning about line graphs.

https://vimeo.com/464199475

Now have a go at answering the questions. 

Watch the video about interpreting data.

Today we are learning about line graphs.

https://vimeo.com/464199475

Now have a go at answering the questions. 

Here is your English activity

I had serious problems with my laptop yesterday so the work I had prepared for you I could not open and download so instead, I would like you to go to the school videos section on the school website and watch the video of me reading the first chapter of street child. You should have already seen that last week. Sorry I am unable to get copies of the pages for you to read today. You may need to watch the video several times and pause it in places to make some notes.

 

Today you are going to imagine that you are Jim Jarvis.

You are going to write about the events that happened in Chapter 1

• Try to include lots of interesting sentence openers, start your sentences in different ways.

• Use the information from Chapter 1.

• Remember you will need to write in past tense and in first person using the pronoun ‘I’.

• Features of a diary that you will need to include:

Informal chatty language Chronological order – writing about things in the order that they happened.

Order thoughts and feeling Personal pronouns – use I because you are imagining that you are Jim.

Structure your writing into paragraphs.

Include time connectives like next, after that, before etc. to order events.

• Here is an example of how you could start your diary:

Monday 15th January 1866 Today began with a visit to Mrs Hodder’s pie shop. Cold, snowy and bitter, the day had already made my feet blue. The smell of rich gravy made my stomach flip and I danced up and down in excitement. A pie! Finally, something nourishing and delicious. Exchanging our last shilling for the pie made me feel felt both excited and anxious – when would we meet again? Quickly, I darted through the alleys, the pie tucked safely against my chest, like treasure…

Use these notes to help you remember the events you can write about in your diary.

 

Woke up feeling excited

• Shilling

• Dashed through streets to Mrs Hodder’s shop

• Feet blue with cold

• Rich smell of hot gravy

• Ran home, pie clutched to chest

• Heart thumping

• Spread pie out in front of fire

• Lizzie

• Ma unwell, very frail and ill

• What was the matter with her?

• Afterwards, curled up

• Worried, anxious

REMEMBER TO PUT CAPITAL I WHEN YOU USE THE PRONOUN I.

 

Follow all the features that you did when you were writing the diary of Maggie Johnson. Some of you did a great job with that and I really enjoyed reading them.

Here is your Science activity

 

Watch the clip below. It is a song that tells you about simple machines that we use to make difficult jobs much easier. Some of these inventions go back thousands of years.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQu3GY509ZM

Now watch this clip which explains the simple machines in more detail. After you have watched the clip, have a search around your home, what things can you find that have any of these simple machines, have a look at how they work. Make a list of them.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSfNYpCprw4

Now watch this clip which explains the simple machines in much more detail.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtk2V0M6k3M

Now have a look at the science sheets underneath. Sorry the quality is so poor but it is the best I could do.

For question 1 write the answer A, B or C

For question 2, write each sentence out including the correct word, please underline the word you have added to the sentence.

For question 3, you can’t draw on the sheet, so just tell me what direction you would draw the arrow for example, pointing up or pointing down. Then say whether it would produce a small or a large force.

For question 4 write the names of the objects that are examples of levers.

For question 5 write which direction you would draw the arrow, again pushing up or pushing down.

For question 6 write either A, B or C and then explain your answer in full sentences.

You can also do the investigation section.

Make your own lever using a short ruler (as the pole) and a pen (as the pivot). Try lifting a pencil case or something similar in size and weight using different lengths of the ruler. Is it easier to lift using the short end of the lever or the long end? Can you think of any examples of levers that you have used today?

You could take a picture of you doing your experiment and email it to me.

 

Tuesday 12th January 2021

If you weren't on our zoom lesson today then have a go at the quiz and watch the lesson below that first before you have a go at playing the game.

 

 

 

 

 

Here is your English activity for today.

 

  • Watch the clip about Maggie Johnson – Upstairs, Downstairs.
  • https://www.literacyshed.com/upstairsdownstairs.html
  • Maggie is a young Victorian girl who gets a job as a housemaid in a big Victorian Manor house. This is the same job that Jim Jarvis’ sisters did in Street Child.
  • Imagine you are Maggie Johnson; I would like you to write a diary explaining the events that took place. Remember to include Maggie’s thoughts and feelings as well as the things that she has been doing throughout the day. Remember to write in past tense because you are writing about things that have already happened. You might want to watch parts of the video a few times to make sure that you include all the detail. You will need to write in paragraphs. Every time you start to write about a new topic, you need to start a new paragraph. Try to really imagine what it would have felt like to be Maggie and to do the job of a housemaid.
  • Features of a diary that you will need to include:

Informal chatty language

Chronological order – writing about things in the order that they happened.

Order thoughts and feeling

Personal pronouns – use I because you are imagining that you are Maggie.

Structure your writing into paragraphs.

Include time connectives like next, after that, before lunch, after dinner etc. to order events.

Edit and improve your work like you would if you were in school.

 

Today's topic lesson

For topic today I would like you to finish your work from yesterday about LS. Lowry. 

Make sure you have done lots of research to find out lots of interesting facts about him. Present your work in a really fun way.

Today's RE lesson

 

Unit 5.3 – Jesus as the Teacher.

In RE this half term we are going to be thinking about Jesus and his role as a teacher to the people.

I would like you to think about the following questions and then write your answers in full sentences in blue please.

Maths activity.

In maths this week are starting to look at a new topic.

Statistics.

First of all I would like you to watch the video explaining about how to interpret charts.

https://vimeo.com/462717846

 

Now have a go at answering the questions. I'm sorry the text is so small but hopefully you can just about manage to read it. crying

English activity.

 

  • Watch the link about expanded noun phrases. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znpbgwx
  • Now read Extract 1 again, we looked at this last week.
  • Find these words in the text: horses, street and floor. What part of speech are they? What do we call this family of words?
  • Look at the phrases that these words are in: ‘ the swaying horses’, ‘the dark street’, the soggy floor’. These are called expanded noun phrases, they give us more information about the noun.
  • Find and copy more expanded noun phrases from the text.
  • Can you think of other adjectives that can expand each phrase further? Rewrite the expanded noun phrase and add another adjective to expand the phrase further. For example: ‘the nervous swaying horses.’
  • Look again at extract 1. Imagine that you are Jim Jarvis. Rewrite the first paragraph in first person. You are Jim so you are going to use the pronoun ‘I’
  • Make sure you include the correct punctuation and spelling.
  • Remember to edit and improve your work as you are going along just the same as we would if you were in school.
  • Only turn your work in when you are 100% happy that it is the best it can be.

Topic activity

First of all I would like you to watch this video about LS Lowry and his work.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LMM5LdOVWQ

 

Today I would like you to produce an information fact file about LS Lowry.

I do not expect this to be finished today. I would like you to continue with it tomorrow afternoon.

Be adventurous with the work you produce. You will need to do your own research about LS Lowry. You can also use the information on the slideshow that we looked at last week.(You can scroll down this page too find it). 

Google Lowry to see what else you can find out about him, don’t just use the information from the powerpoint I have included.

Friday 8th January 2021

Good morning Year 5. How are you all today? I hope you are well. Did you enjoy the snow yesterday, let's see how much we get today.

 

Here are your spellings for next week. This time there is no common letter string or pattern, these are challenge words. They all have some form of tricky element to them, whether it’s a double letter or a tricky sound, so be careful. Try and find a way to help you remember how to spell each one.

If there are any of this week’s words that you don’t know what they mean then look them up in a dictionary to find the definition.

Make your own Look, Cover, Write, Check sheets to practise your spellings. You can also find them on spelling shed as normal.

Write an interesting sentence for each of your spelling words. Try to start your sentences in different ways. Remember to include the correct punctuation including commas, question marks, exclamation marks, capital letters and full stops. Make sure you spell all your words correctly.

Here is a word search. See if you can find all your spelling words from this week’s list. You could have a go at making your own word search using this week’s spelling

words.

 

 

English activity.

Re read the pages from the story so far. Scroll down the page to find them. Think about the main character Jim Jarvis. What do we definitely know about him from what it tells us in the text? Make a list of all the things that the book tells us about him - the things that we definitely know. Add these to the correct part of the chart.

Now think about things that we can infer about Jim - what do we not know for definite but we can work out from what the author has said? What are the clues in the text that make us think that about Jim? Make a list and add them to the correct place on the chart.

Things that the author tells us about Jim Jarvis.

Things that we can infer about Jim Jarvis (work out) from the text.


 

 

Now use the information you have got to write a detailed character description about Jim Jarvis. Try to include interesting vocabulary; you can magpie vocabulary from the text as well as thinking of your own. Start your sentences in different ways. Include adjectives and adverbs. See if you can include any alliteration and similes.

Maths activity

For this week’s minute maths, I would like you to copy the questions onto paper and then work out the answers and write them on your paper. You could make more sheets and time yourself and try and beat your score each time.

To find half of a number you need to divide it by 2

To find a quarter of a number you need to divide it by 4

To find a third of a number you need to divide it by 3

To find a tenth of a number you need to divide it by 10.

Can you see the pattern? You divide the number by the denominator. (The number at the bottom of the fraction)

 

Once you have done this activity I would like you to log on to mathletics to practise your maths skills and also TT Rockstars to practise your times tables.

 

Topic activity

 

Click on the tab below to watch Newsround to find out what has been going on in the news this week.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround

Every Friday I would like you to write a diary or some form of report on or record events that have happened in the news throughout the week. It is a good idea to watch Newsround every day and make notes that you could then use to help you on the Friday. I would like you to write about what has been happening about the Corona Virus Pandemic each week.

You can also write about your own feelings in a personal diary too. This is a good idea to help you to cope with things at the moment because it is very different for all of us. In years to come, children will be learning about this pandemic in their history lessons.

Maths activity

Today we are going to be concentrating on chunking for division again but today we are using much bigger numbers. I would like you to use the chunking method to work out these division questions. Remember the first thing you do is to create your cheat box. Look at the questions, you might need to have bigger numbers in your cheat boxes for these questions. Check the answers in your cheat box to make sure that you have calculated them correctly. Check your subtractions to make sure you haven't made any mistakes. Once you have taken away all your chunks, make sure you add them up correctly. Check your answers before you move on to the next question. 

 

  1. 385 ÷ 11 =
  2. 590 ÷ 6 =
  3. 629 ÷  8 =
  4. 775 ÷ 5 =
  5. 471 ÷ 3 =
  6. 526 ÷ 7 = 
  7. 958 ÷ 9 =
  8. 376 ÷ 4 =
  9. 1758 ÷ 12 =
  10. 1177 ÷ 12 =
  11. 1279 ÷ 8 =
  12. 1424 ÷ 6 =
  13. 1933 ÷ 11 =
  14. 1827 ÷ 8 =
  15. 2076 ÷ 12 =
  16. 1505 ÷ 9 =
  17. Challenge:
  18. How many weeks in 266 days?
  19. Rena earns £1195 in five days. How much does she earn in one day?
  20. Jethro walks at a pace of 4km every hour. At this pace how many hours will it take him to walk the Thames Path, a distance of 294km?
