English work from Mrs Spencer Peck for Thursday 2nd April

Hello everyone, I know you have been keeping busy - well done!

Recently, we have studied corn snakes and made an information leaflet about how best to look after them in captivity.  Following on from this, I have sent a comprehension based on the corn snake which I would like you to complete.

Can you research another animal from North America? (not necessarily one that could be a pet).  Try to find out about its habitat, diet and habits.

You might bullet point what you find out, or you could make a leaflet like we did in class.

 I have set a quick 20 question assessment on Sumdog going over the mean work from today.

Mrs Thornley –

Guided Read-Read the next two chapters of your book. Draw a picture of your favourite character, and annotate with characteristics. I'm curious to see if the descriptions you gave me last week, match the picture I painted in my head.

PE-Dance. Think about your favourite band, and their best song. Why do you like it so much? Does it have a good beat? Is it an easy song to sing along to? Watch their music video in You Tube. Does the video reflect the music? Would you have made a different routine?

Joke of the day to make you smile-What is a snake's strongest subject in school?

Hissss-tory!

Wednesday 1st April 2020

Hi for PE have a look at https://www.keypesports.co.uk/ and try one of their activities today. In Maths I have set a Prodigy assessment for today (49 questions) looking at a range of skills – www.prodigygame.com. We are then continuing with our data work and looking at finding the mean – just the one sheet (3 sections fitted on one) so again look at the example and practice your skills.

English/History – today I would like you to find out more about the only area of Britain that was under Nazi rule during the 2nd World War. Jersey, Guernsey and the Channel Islands were occupied during the war – find out more about this think about:

What was it like for the islanders?

When did it start?

When did it end?

What different rules did they have to follow? etc.

 

Then from Mrs T in the afternoon:

RE-Discover the impact.

What do people say in response to the questions, 'Who was/is Jesus?' Would we get a different response from parents, teenagers, a Muslim, a Jew, a person of no faith, a young child? Is He different things to different people depending on age, gender, faith or circumstances?

Task

Choose two people to interview. One can be a family member, and another could be a grandparent, aunty or one of your classmates. You can email or phone them. Try to choose two people of a different age, and gender, and ask them the question, 'Who is Jesus to you?' Record their answers, and comment on any differences you find.

 

PSHE

Healthy Eating-Healthy Bodies

Think about the work we did last week on a healthy, balanced diet. This week, we are going to extend that thinking. TASK-Research what job carbohydrates and fats do for the body, is there such a thing as 'good fats?' What did people eat 100 years ago? Was that food healthier than what we eat today? Compare and comment.

 

Joke of the day to make you smile-Why didn't the lamp sink?

It was too light!

If you fancy a break Rock Kidz are back at 2pm on youtube if you want to have a jump around and joining in with their mad challenges!

Tuesday 31st March 2020

Hi for PE have a look at https://www.keypesports.co.uk/ and try one of their activities today. In Maths I have set a Sumdog 50 question assessment on Line Graphs and then we are on to Line Graphs 3 and 4 at the bottom of the page.

English/History – today I would like you to find out more about spies who were active during World War 2 – one of these was even a double agent. Write about their lives in World War 2:

Eddie Chapman (Agent Zigzag)

Nancy Wake

As extra art/research I would like you to research papers needed at the time and try and forge some false papers for one of the spies.

English work from Mrs Spencer Peck for Tuesday 31st March :-

Hello everyone, as we have just finished reading, The Giant's Necklace,' I would like you to write a diary entry as if YOU are Cherry (we looked at some examples written by last year's Y6).

You could begin to write from the moment Cherry 'woke up' on the beach, or from when she met the miners. If you are feeling creative, you could decorate your page with shells or age the paper using tea bags. About 1 - 2 pages is enough.

I'm also sending a sheet for you to practise the use of 'its' and 'It's.' This sheet is with the Maths files at the bottom of the page.

Monday 30th March

We will start the morning with some Joe Wicks to get our PE done - we are doing it in school and enjoying (staff more than children!) I have set a 50 question challenge on Sumdog relating to our work today on Line Graphs - they can do it before or after the work or look at the examples and then have a go at Sumdog - Line Graphs 1 and 2 are at the bottom of the page - again depending on how confident they feel start on A or B. 

History/English research project - today I want you to find out more about 3 characters from the war and write a biography for each. They are:

Field Marshall Montgomery

David Stirling

Douglas Bader

Think about why they were important in WW2 - what they did etc.

In the afternoon we have this from Mrs Thornley:

1. What are the next two numbers?

          12 ,  7 ,  2 , ... ,  ...

Joke of the day to make you smile-Where do cows go on December 31st?

To a Moo Years Eve party!

We usually have French in the afternoon - the BBC revise wise site has some good clips that could be useful in keep up their skills.

Weekend

I have set a sumdog competition for the weekend (it is live now and will finish Monday morning). It is not compulsory but I will have a look for a prize in school for the winner and endeavour to get it posted out. Well done to the top 3 today on Prodigy - Isobel H, Sofiya C and Alfie L. I hope the activities have gone ok this week and they have enjoyed finding out more about World War 2. I will keep adding the Maths work we would have done - please don't feel like you have to complete the whole sheet - normally in class the children will complete 1-2 sections maximum but I am trying to cater for a range of Maths skills. Hope the weekend goes well. Best wishes Mr M.

Friday 27th March

We will start the morning with Joe Wicks again to get our energy levels up – you obviously don’t have to do it live as it is available on youtube throughout the day.

Maths – well done to Evie, Harley, Isobel H, Jacob L, Isobelle VJ, Alfie L, Jacob H and Louis who smashed the Sumdog challenge on Wednesday. I have set up some work on www.prodigygame.com for today. After we are continuing to look at conversion graphs – at the bottom of the page are conversion 3 and conversion 4 files.

History/English research topic – thanks to Jacob H who has spotted this link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=r_c3rBoU7E4&feature=youtu.be a history lesson from a World War 2 bunker. Questions to research today are:

  1. One important point in the war for Britain was the Battle of Britain in the skies – find out more about this and some of the people (pilots) involved.
  2. Hitler had firm plans to invade Britain – there was even a date set and codename for it – try and find out more about their plans and why they changed.
  3. After the Battle of Britain the pilots became known as ‘the few’ based on a speech from Winston Churchill – try and do a sketch of Churchill and include some lines from this speech on it – don’t forget to either tweet it to us @6Ringley so we can all see – or email any examples to thornleym@st-saviourringley.bolton.sch.uk – Mrs T is keeping me up to date with your messages and work whilst I’m working in school.

In the afternoon KeySports have put on some videos this week to encourage our PE – you can find them here - https://t.co/yMGYxrCwfL pick some that you fancy doing – again you can send us some pictures of you in action and we will share them with Mr Fenton.

We also have Rock Kidz live on youtube at 2pm.

Hope you have a restful and safe weekend. I also hope these tasks have worked ok?  It does look like we are facing a long closure so will keep the page updated daily – don’t feel you have to do all tasks and please explore other sites and activities if you want to.

Thursday 26th March

On Thursday Mrs Spencer-Peck and Mrs Thornley take the class so they are taking on the activities today. I still recommend starting with some PE each day at 9am and Joe Wicks is offering daily keep fit sessions on his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/thebodycoachtv - we are doing them with the children in school (it is getting me fit at least!). If that is too early, or you fancy a playtime Mr Fenton our PE teacher is uploading some PE games to be done in the garden or back yard from 10am - I believe they will be here: https://www.keypesports.co.uk/ if not their twitter feed will take you to them. Don't forget Rock Kidz on youtube at 2pm. I have set a sumdog competition again on graphs and co-ordinates this time.

Mrs Spencer Peck has set 2 English tasks for the morning - they are at the very bottom of this class closure page in a grey download box, under the subheading 'GSP. Work'.

In the afternoon we have this from Mrs Thornley:

Ok, so Thursday would be guided read and PE-dance. 
Guided Read
Read 2 chapters of a new book. This book you read will be the book we use for any further school closure guided read activities. Remember-I may not have read this book, so this is a good way for you to share it with me.
Tell me the title and author of your chosen book. Think about the characters you have met so far. Give me a brief description of the characters, so that I can paint a picture of them in my head.
PE-Dance
We have been working on a group dance routine for the Michael Jackson track-Thriller. Unfortunately at this time we cannot continue working in groups. Over the coming weeks, think about the work you did in your group. Could you incorporate these moves into a solo piece? What would you change? You are now in complete creative control, so this is your chance to put all YOUR moves in. Feel free to include family members-it may be a chance to get mum and dad acting like a zombie! Remember-dance is about your interpretation, so whatever you create will be perfect!
Have fun- I look forward to seeing pictures and maybe video clips! Send them to thornleym@st-saviourringley.bolton.sch.uk or you can tweet them to @6Ringley
 
Joke of the day to make you smile- What is the difference between a guitar and a fish?
You can tune a guitar, but you can't tunafish!
 
Love Mrs. T
 

Wednesday 25th March

We will be starting with some PE each day at 9am and Joe Wicks is offering daily keep fit sessions on his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/thebodycoachtv - I would strongly recommend completing these daily.

History/English look/listen to clips on bbc https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/history-ks2-world-war-2-clips-index/zjc8cqt about evacuation and war  speeches - write 2 diary entries for an evacuee - they can be happy or sad in their new environment but think about how they feel and listen to some of the speeches from the leaders - write their own speech designed to inspire the people - they can even record themselves delivering it. To help with research we have access to Britannica Encyclopedia online - https://school.eb.co.uk/storeschoolcard?id=boltonla password id Bolton1920

Art - look at some of the propaganda posters of the time (dig for victory, carless talk cost lives etc) design a poster of your own.

Day 2. 

We will be starting with some PE each day at 9am and Joe Wicks is offering daily keep fit sessions on his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/thebodycoachtv - I would strongly recommend completing these daily. If that is too early, or you fancy a playtime Mr Fenton our PE teacher is uploading some PE games to be done in the garden or back yard from 10am - I believe they will be here: https://www.keypesports.co.uk/ if not their twitter feed will take you to them.

We are then looking at Pie Charts 2 - again look at the example with the children and then they will pick their starting point based on understanding. The files are listed at the bottom of this page - (Pie Charts 3 and Pie Charts 4). Well done yesterday 22/29 of you completed the task set.

 

English we will be doing some more work on our project based on World War 2. They will need to research some questions each day and write responses to them in an extended piece of writing:

  1. What was the blitz and what impact did it have on Manchester and the local area.
  2. Some British islands were occupied by the Nazis in the war - what can they find out about this?
  3. Early in the war we had to rescue our troops from Dunkirk - lots of ordinary people helped out - find some stories about this.

To help with research we have access to Britannica Encyclopedia online - https://school.eb.co.uk/storeschoolcard?id=boltonla
ID: Bolton1920

Art - the blitz was a frightening time - can you do a picture of fire - then if you have black paper you can cut out shapes of some ruined buildings, planes etc in silhouette . Again I would love to see them (you can tweet them to us if you would like) - we have set up a class twitter page: @6Ringley 

Matt Goodfellow is currently reading daily poems on twitter - please look at todays and tell us what you think. https://twitter.com/EarlyTrain

In the afternoon Rock Kidz are doing some daily updates at 2pm: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCky2iMp1kt6pCgJlxUjH3Dw these will cover PSHE and a bit more PE.

Monday 23/3/20

English is a little trickier as we have been focusing on Reading paper revision - but there seems little point in continuing with that. For this week I want the children to do some cross curricular work with a project based on World War 2. They will need to research some questions each day and write responses to them in an extended piece of writing:

  1. Why did World War 2 start?
  2. Which countries were involved and who were their leaders?
  3. Why was the war known as the phoney war early on?
  4. When was rationing introduced? What did it involve? How did it work?

Art - find an aeroplane that was used during World War 2 - sketch a picture of it and some facts to your picture. We have some good artists in Class 6 so I look forward to seeing their pictures (you can tweet them to us if you would like) - we have set up a class twitter page: @6Ringley 

Matt Goodfellow is currently reading daily poems on twitter - please look at todays and tell us what you think. https://twitter.com/EarlyTrain

In the afternoon Rock Kidz are doing some daily updates at 2pm: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCky2iMp1kt6pCgJlxUjH3Dw these will cover PSHE and a bit more PE.
