Good Morning Unicorns!
Did you know?
A bolt of lightning is five times hotter than the sun.
Join me at 9:00am for our morning reflection – we continue to reflect around the theme of ‘Courage’. Remembering that this week is Children's Mental Health awareness week. I have got a beautiful song to share with you and we will think about about what 'self-expression' is and what is means to be you.
The theme this week is Courage.
KS2 assembly with Mrs Huotari / Mr Langley at 9:40am
Arithmetic – Dividing by 10.
I have chosen a dividing by 10 activity as this is the key skill behind finding 10% of an amount.
You only need to do one half of the sheet – you will notice they are both the same.
LO: to convert fractions to percentages.
Please follow the link to today’s video for your learning ‘Fractions to Percentages’ https://vimeo.com/492449530
Watch the video carefully, pausing to answer questions when you are asked to do so. Here is the worksheet and answers from White Rose to accompany today’s lesson:
Here is also a link to BBC bitesize – this is if you wish to do a little more work on today’s learning, might be useful to watch if you have been finding the concept of converting fractions to percentages difficult. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvcny9q
If you follow the link here are some useful videos, tips and quizzes to test your knowledge of converting a fraction to a decimal.
Extra Maths Zoom:
Unicorns, a small number of you have been invited to a Maths Zoom lesson today, which should help you – very similar to the boosters in school. This is at 10:30 am today via Zoom.
If you too are struggling with the Maths but have not been sent an invitation to join us then please email me: email@example.com so I can add you to the group.
LO: to explore rhythm and iambic pentameter.
William Shakespeare often wrote in ‘blank verse’, which is sometimes called iambic pentameter. It means that each line should have ten beats. Technically, it becomes important which beats are stressed and which are unstressed - but for us it will be fun to simply explore ten-beat lines. It is very easy to write ten-beat lines because it mirrors the way that we talk to each other on a day-to-day basis. For example:
I would like to have another cup of tea
I wonder if my friends will play football
What time is it? I hope it’s dinner time!
Can you count the ten syllables in each line above? The rhythm is very similar to our heartbeat:
De-DUM, De-DUM, De-DUM, De-DUM, De-DUM
Take some time to watch and enjoy this clip all about Iambic Pentameter from BBC Teach:
Look at the famous Shakespeare speech that he wrote for the play Henry V play – can you spot the 10 beats in each line? I have saved the document for you here:
Activity: Once you have read through – why not try writing some ten-beat lines of your own? You can form it into a poem or just try out different lines and see how many you can come up with on your own.
I have saved a comprehension task for you about ‘The Battle of Bosworth’ – the history behind how the Tudor family came to power. You do not need to print the sheet – read the text carefully and you can answer the questions into your remote learning book.
Join me at 12:00pm for our Zoom call before lunch. Today we shall be catching up with what you have been doing today. Cannot wait to see you all!
LO: to explore how light travels and investigate Earth’s place within the Solar System.
Before this Science lesson, it would be useful for you to find out the definitions of the words:
During my planning last week, I stumbled across this amazing live lesson on BBC Teach ‘Doctor Who, Space, Light and Super Movers – Live Lesson’. This is from a few years ago about should be great fun, follow the link to watch:
The video lesson is broken up into three parts:
- The Solar System, Earth and Sun.
- Light and materials.
Following on from this video – can you make notes of what you find out, new facts that you learn about the Solar System, Light or Reflection.
Have a little play around and explore the BBC bitesize clips for computer science – choose a few to watch, read through and play the games.
Mrs Ruiz has updated the Eco Council page on the school website and it looks great! There are some links and activities that you can look at this afternoon. Go to the main school page > Children > Eco Council.
Hope you have all had a great day, keep in touch and remember to send any work you may have to me, if you can – See you tomorrow at 9:00am.
Mrs Jessup. xx
