Tuesday 23rd June

Welcome to Tuesday's learning tasks....

Spellings: Rule 38 ‘cial’ suffix

Use this link: https://spellingframe.co.uk/

  • Click on year 5 & 6 (spelling rule 38 cial)
  • Click on view words.
  • Write them down in your exercise book, checking you have spelled them correctly.
  • Then press ‘play’ in the top right-hand corner
  • Click on spelling tiles.
  • Each day use 1 of the games until you have gone on each game (5 games each week)

Remember, you will need to complete the spelling test on Friday, so it is a good idea to practice writing some of these words each day too.

 

English:

This week our English and topic are linked around the text Paddington bear. You will be writing your own Paddington adventure story later in the week.

Hint: you will be expected to use some relative clauses in your Paddington adventure story later this week.

 

Reading: A Bear called Paddington

Either listen to, or read for yourself, the third and fourth chapters of ‘A Bear called Paddington.

Chapter 3- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elto5u5H_kI

Chapter 4- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46YFinIT98o

Or enjoy reading it yourself! It is a free download on Kindle. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bear-Called-Paddington-Book-ebook/dp/B006UN3FTY

 

Today, you are going to focus on the plot of one of the chapters (you can choose which one). Using a story mountain, can you summarise the key events in the opening, build up, dilemma, resolution and ending of that chapter. Remember, you are only making notes so you shouldn’t be writing in sentences. Summarising means you are writing as little as possible! You can use the story mountain below, or draw your own. Looking at how the plot is mapped out in the structure will help you write your own chapter later on this week.

Maths:

Daily 10

Pupils have also been using daily 10 in class to improve this recall of multiplication and division facts. They all know how this works. Click on the link below to access the website.

Having listened to your feedback from last week, some of you preferred the white rose maths, and some preferred the NCETM videos. So, I am going to offer a choice. You can either do the white rose or  the NCETM videos. There is no right or wrong option, it is what best suits you. Either lesson will benefit your child.

NCETM Year 5/6

Lesson 7: Explore the relationship between numerators and denominators including non-unit fractions

Non-unit fractions are fractions with a numerator greater than 1
