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 righthand 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.

Reading: A Bear called Paddington

Either listen to, or read for yourself, the fifth chapter of ‘A Bear called Paddington.

Chapter 5-https://www.twine.fm/TirzaSchaefer/cxezm0/a-bear-called-paddington-chapter-5

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

 

Story planning

Your task today is to plan a new chapter for A Bear called Paddington, using the story mountain to decide your basic plot. Where will Paddington be? Who will be with him?  What sticky situation could Paddington get himself into this time? How much chaos is he going to cause? How is he going to get out of the sticky situation? I have also uploaded a short video to dojo to give you a few tips. You can use the story mountain below, or draw your own.

 

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
