Home Learning WB 18.1.21

Welcome to Year 5’s Home Learning for WB 18th January 2021.

Zoom Session

Remember this week there will be a daily 10-15minute Zoom session at 9.30am to set you up for the day. Check out Classdojo for the invitation. In addition to these, there will be 2 drop-in sessions on Monday and Wednesday at 1pm (I will re-post the invitation for this too); you can pop in to these if you are needing some help (at these sessions I will speak to one child at a time so you will be kept in the waiting room until I have finished talking to the child before you).

Here is a printable overview of the whole week.

Editable resources will be posted in the daily dropbox along with daily videos.

Reading

It is really important that you continue to read as much as possible; this can be completed online with Reading Plus, a home reader or look at some of these great websites which enable you to read e-books for free.

For Focus Reading this week, we continue our reading of Ice Trap by Meredith Hooper.

There will be video resources available – see Dropbox 

Monday:

Today’s focuses are:  *Can I find words or phrases that evoke emotion?  *Can I provide reasons (justifications) for thoughts and opinions?

Read the page which begins “Enduranceentered the pack ice”.  Visualise and discuss the images they could see in their minds as you read.

Look up some of the words you are unsure of (e.g. ice floe, striven, plummeted)

Which lines do you find memorable? Give reasons for your choices.

Extract 1 

Tuesday:

Today’s focus: *Can I make inferences about characters?

Read the next extract (beginning – ‘Winter came with fearful cold. Think about what happened to the crew.

Prepare a short playscript thinking about what happened in these 2 pages.

Extract 2

Wednesday:

Today’s focus: Can I draw inferences about characters and how they are feeling?

What should Shackleton and his men do now that the ship is sinking?

Read the next page beginning ‘Shackleton looked away’ and think about the illustration of the men pulling a lifeboat.

Using the resource sheet – add captions to the men. What would they be saying? Remember that you need to convey how they would be feeling at the same time.

Resource 1

Extract 3

Thursday:

Today’s Focus: Can I draw inferences about characters and how they are feeling?

Read the page that begins… ‘Life on the flow wasn’t bad’. What was the crews reaction to the boat sinking? How did the men feel? Why did they feel like this? How did Shackleton feel as the leader?

Write an entry into Shackleton’s log after the sinking of the Endurance. Think about what might have been written that would sum up how Shackleton’s feelings and emotions.

Additional Grammar Activities

Here are some additional grammar activities that you may like to do…

 

English

Video resources available in the daily Dropbox file.

This week in English we will be writing a diary entry. We will be taking the role of one of the crew members of the Endurance and writing in role. The focus for this week will be relative clauses and apostrophes for possession.

Monday and Tuesday 

L.I. Can I identify and use relative clauses to add information about the noun in my writing?

Watch these videos all about relative clauses and complete the quizzes.

Now complete the tasks in the resource pack.

Thursday

L.I. Can I use relative clauses and apostrophes for possession in my writing?

If you need to, recap what a relative clause is and an apostrophe for possession.

In your writing today, I would like to see examples of both of these.

Your task today is to write about the picture. Think about what you can see and describe it. This will help when writing your diary entry tomorrow.

Friday

L.I Can I write a diary entry in role?

Today, you are going to put all your learning into practice.

Using subordinate and relative clauses and apostrophes for possession, you need to take the role of one of the crew of the Endurance.

The ship has got stuck in an ice floe and they are now having to set up camp as the ship is sinking.

You need to think carefully about the feelings and emotions of the crew member as well as explaining what has been going on. Remember that a diary entry will be in first person and written in past tense.

TOPIC: Antarctic

Video resource available

Perplexing Poles

The focus for this lesson is to find out about the physical geography of the poles and what it is like on the poles?

You will be thinking about: What do you think it looks like on the Antarctic? Do you know what Antarctica means?  What do you think the seasons are like in Antarctica?

I wonder, when would be the best time to plan an expedition to Antarctica? 

Your task for this week is to make a fact-file all about the Physical Geography of Antarctica. This can be drawn/written or created using PowerPoint or similar.

The areas that you need to find out about and display on your fact-file are:

·                Time zones at the South Pole (including length of the ‘day’ with sun)

·                Mountain ranges and volcanoes

·                Changing ice mass and glaciers throughout the seasons – the climate

·                What flora and fauna (plants and animals) you might find there.

Videos to support your learning.

·                KS2 simple facts: Antarctica: Simple Facts and Figures

·                YouTube: Tourism in Antarctica

Continue with the tennis activity cards that you could try to do too. Remember some of them may require some research.

PSHE

Research your ideal job/ career using the internet.

Record this on the ‘My Ideal Job’ resource sheet.

You will need to find out about and record:

• Job title

• Job description/main duties

• Qualifications needed

• Salary

3 steps needed to take to achieve my dream job, e.g. work hard at school, get some relevant work experience (mechanic/hairdresser), go to university, work in my dad’s shop, etc.

Music – Gustav Holst – The Planet Suite – Mars – the bringer of war.

Watch video clip:

Screenshot of www.youtube.com

While you listen, draw a picture of how the music makes you feel.

In this piece of music, you hear a lot of string or bowed instruments.

Holst gave an instruction for the instrumentalists to strike the string with their bow, rather than draw it across the strings.  This gave the string instruments a more percussive sound.

See a demonstration of col legno here

Screenshot of www.youtube.com

Space Music

Many modern pieces of music for space films have been based on Mars, the bringer of war.

Listen to this piece of music, and see what instruments you can hear.

Screenshot of www.youtube.com

How does it sound similar to Mars the bringer of war?

What does it make you think of?

 

How does it make you feel?

If you can…

•       Make a tissue box banjo

–      Make a 2 inch hole in one end of the box.

–      Insert a kitchen roll tube 3 inches in and tape in place.

–      Tape down 4 elastic bands stretched around the box, covering the centre hole.

–      Experiment with different widths and lengths of bands.

–      Pluck the strings with your fingers.

–      Use different size elastic bands – what happens to the sound.
