English: writing the introductory paragraph of a newspaper report and creating an effective, attention-grabbing headline. 

 

9:00 - 10:15: Use the video lesson to continue practising including semi-colon punctuation within your sentences before recapping the main features of a newspaper article's opening paragraph. Follow the tips to spot how the writer for the Spiderman event blends the five W's into the first few sentences of the text. Think about how you could include a witness quotes paragraph. Download the independent activity to a) practise writing the opening paragraph for a given headline and then b) creating your own headline and opening to a newspaper article with a Victorian theme. 

 

10:15 - 10:45: Download the reading activities. Tasks A and B focus on identifying important vocabulary within the non-fiction text before job C works on answering inference questions. Remember the answer won't be there in 'black and white' in the text but you should use the information as clues to create an accurate response.

 

10:45: Break time. 

 

Maths links and activities will be loaded to the website at half-past 10; ready to begin at 11. 

Maths: multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 - using place value knowledge

 

11:00 - 12:00: Follow the link to the video lesson. Watch out for the Christmas cracker joke before using the information to see how our number system allows us to use place value when multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. 

 

Choose either the blue or green task to complete your independent activity before having a go at the investigation. It's okay if you want to draw yourself a place value chart. Remember to use the solutions to self-assess your understanding. 

12:00 - 12:30: Follow the link to practise your rapid-recall skills by racing against the button inside ONE minute. 

 

a) Hit the answer for x3, x4, x5, x6, x7, x8, x9 and x12 - add up your totals as you go along. Can your combined scores beat a total of i) 150, ii) 176 or iii) 210?

 

b) Use the double and halves practise. By putting your totals together can you score the greatest possible number which would round to 60?

 

c) Complete one round of square numbers. 

 

d) Using the x7 times tables - can you go faster than one answer every 2 seconds to get past Mr Shackleton's total?

12:30: LUNCHTIME

 

Remember to check back at 1:30 for this afternoon's activity and a final look at the UJ gallery of work for our home-learning tasks.

English: gathering witness information and sequencing a recount in a chronological order. 

 

9:00 - 10:15: Use the video lesson to think about ways a reporter can speak with witnesses to gather more information about the event. Use their example of the Spiderman incident to recognise the importance of note-taking and having a clear understanding of the order of events (you want to accurately inform your reader - avoid FAKE news!).

 

Download the independent lesson to use these skills for our Victorian newspaper article. Think about what you would want to ask before creating your own responses for each witness (workhouse owner, Tip and chimney sweeper). Make sure to consider how each person will think differently about the escape - who would make Jim sound like a hero and who would say he got lucky?

 

10:15 - 10:45: Reading. Continue your storybook reading for two thirds of your reading time - think about the plot and what has happened already and is going on now in the story.

 

Use your last 10 minutes to create 5 cards to sequence things that have taken place (e.g. the character was eating breakfast >> suddenly envelopes flew through the window >> his uncle was furious and took the family to an island rock >> there was loud crashing at the door >> a giant stumbled in to give some news). Scramble up the cards before asking somebody at home to see if they can plot the correct order. 

 

10:45: Break time. 

 

Maths links and activities will be loaded to the website at half-past 10; ready to begin at 11.

Wednesday 2nd December

 

Below are home-learning tasks covering English and Maths activities for the day. There is a grid of afternoon activities - all linked to the topics we've been covering in class - which you can choose to complete in any order. Hopefully, by sharing all of the afternoon tasks at the start of our isolation, you can decide your own order, plan ahead and think about any resources you may need. 

 

Once you've completed an activity, answers are available for you to self-assess your understanding. You may also email class11@crawshawbooth.lancs.sch.uk (for all isolating UJ children) with any work you wish to share. 

 

NOTICE: Christmas jumper day will take place in school whilst we are still isolating therefore we will have our own Christmas jumper day on MONDAY 14th DECEMBER.

 

English: Sentence skill work; accurately use commas to clearly show extra clauses within a sentence and avoid ambiguity. Use the website link to recap and learn about the different ways a writer can use comma punctuation. Have a go at the quiz (activity 1) before completing the independent activity below. 

Maths: Converting linear metric measurement (between millimetres, cm, metres and km).

 

TASK ONE: Follow the link below to the video lesson which examines conversion rules before practising how to accurately convert between different measures. Download the conversion rule guide to help.

 

TASK TWO: Complete the independent activity below before using the answer sheet to self-assess.

 

TASK THREE: Use the tasks below to practise your estimation and measuring skills. Create a chart with three columns (mm, cm and m). For any measure you take whilst completing the tasks, add it to your chart and convert between the three units of measure.  

 

Find...

i) 10 objects from around your house which have a combined length of exactly 465cm.

ii) 5 objects from one room in your house which have a combined length of 53mm. 

iii) 2 objects with a difference in length of 0.88m. 

 

Ch) Create your own measuring tool. For example, rather than using centimetres you might measure in skittles - 'the remote control is 23.5 skittles long'. Can you find two objects with the same measure? What would you convert your scale to (e.g. from 10 skittles = 1 cereal bar)? 

 

TASK FOUR: Rock out for at least 10 minutes to add to our class target of reaching 45,000 Times table ROCKstar points! 

Afternoon Activities: 


Select one activity per afternoon. You may wish to keep returning to a task during the two weeks and you are welcome to expand on an activity to create a project. Attempt to include at least one piece of work for the different subjects (e.g. include a theme task, science job, French activity, music work and Art task over the two weeks).

 

Have fun, be creative and remember to share what you get up to by emailing the Class 11 email address - for ALL isolating Upper Juniors.

Monday 30th November

 

Below are a set of home-learning tasks covering an English, Maths and afternoon activity. Once you've completed an activity, answers are available for you to self-assess your understanding. You may also email class11@crawshawbooth.lancs.sch.uk (for all isolating UJ children) with any work you wish to share. 

 

English:

 

TASK ONE: Reading comprehension about our reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. Carefully read the information text – thinking about the use of technical vocabulary – before answering the questions. Remember to use the text to include key evidence in your answers. Y5’s scroll down to use the second version (2 stars) whilst Y6 children should use the final version. 

 

TASK TWO: Create a table to compare Queen Elizabeth with the second-longest ruling monarch Queen Victoria. You may wish to complete some more research to add to facts you’ve already learnt in class. Think about how you will categorise your information (e.g. number of children, new laws during her reign, people’s opinion). Your chart should include a mix of quick facts or figures and more detailed sentences.

Maths:

 

Use the BBC home-learning webpage to recap the rules used to convert between different units of time. Do not complete any of the independent activities on the page.

 

TASK ONE: Convert between different measures of time – complete all boxes.

 

TASK TWO: Ordering the duration of different events.

 

Weekly Challenge: to work as a class to score more than 45,000 points on Times table ROCKstar.

Art:

 

TASK ONE: use four strips of paper to create your own viewfinder.

 

TASK TWO: download the images of scenes and objects from the Victorian era (or research to find your own). Move and readjust your viewfinder into different positions to edit out parts of the scene/object to create a cropped image.

 

TASK THREE: Create two pieces of artwork by drawing the same image twice. There should be a clear difference in how each of your pieces of art have been created. For example, one may use crayon to add colour whilst the other is a pencil drawing. You may wish to complete the two drawings on different paper (e.g. brown wrapping paper, tin-foil, newspaper). Once you’ve completed your drawings - present them by sitting them next to each other or overlapping.
