Tuesday 23rd June 2020.

 

Activities to complete today (if you can):

  • Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes answering reading comprehensions on Read Theory. Link: https://readtheory.org/auth/login?login_error=1
  • Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes reading a book of your choice. If possible, adults to ask questions about the book after they have finished reading. Link to possible questions you could ask: https://www.abss.k12.nc.us/cms/lib/NC01001905/Centricity/Domain/36/Parent%20Book%20Talk%20flyer.pdf
  • Spellings: On the ‘attachments’ section of our Class Page, you will find your spellings document. Please use this document to practise these spellings ahead of retaking the spelling test later in the week. Be careful to check the pronunciations of all of these words - as they are very different.
  • Maths: Use the link below:

Click on Week 9, Lesson 2 – Subtracting decimals with a different number of decimal places. Watch the video, do the activity, mark your answers. If you have any questions, or are struggling in some way – please get in contact with myself on Dojo and I will try my best to help you! The questions and answer sheets are on the ‘Attachments’ section of today’s work on our school class page.

 

(Remember – if this material to too hard for your child at this stage in their development or without the resources they would have access to in school – please do not worry about doing this. You are also welcome to try lower year group work if you feel this would be beneficial. Please contact me if you think this applies to yourself.)

 

p.s. Please message me to let me know when you have done your maths work – it is nice to see it, as I cannot see it like I could on Purple Mash. Thanks!

 

Writing Task – This week, we will explore what life was like for people in Britain in World War Two. This week focuses on the start of the war and what life was like for evacuees. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

 

Find out about the Blitz by exploring these two sources, making notes as you read.

 

Read - Imperial War Museums: The Blitz Around Britain: https://www.iwm.org.uk/history/the-blitz-around-britain

 

Watch - BBC History KS2: The Blitz: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-the-blitz/zm22jhv

 

Now look at these photographs taken during the Blitz and write down any words or phrases that you think of when you see them. Once you have written some, use www.wordhippo.com to improve/add to your list by exploring synonyms (words with similar meanings).

Now watch the short YouTube clip, Blitz: animated multimedia here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6yisNi5ZWY&safe=active

 

Task: After watching the clip, choose one of the following:

Write a poem to describe a night during the Blitz. You can choose what type of poem you write: free-verse, acrostic etc.

• Imagine you are sitting in one of the houses shown in the YouTube clip. Write a diary entry / blog of that night. Think about your thoughts and emotions throughout as you write.

 

Whichever one you select, use some of the words and phrases you collected when looking at the Blitz photographs. Remember to keep proof-reading your work to check for spelling and punctuation.

 

Remember, if you are not sure or need any help with anything on here – just contact myself on Dojo.

 

Thanks,

 

Mr Scott
