Lesson 5 - Possessive Apostrophe

 

The children were taught how to use a possessive apostrophe before Christmas. Recap that it is used to show when something belongs to someone OR something. Have a go at practising the skill by saying and writing something that belongs to you. For example: "Mr Smith's classroom" "Millie's glasses". 

 

 

Look at the pictures on the worksheet and specifically have a look for someone or something. For example: Titanic, lady, Samson, gentleman etc. Can you write down something that belongs to them on the lines next to the pictures? For example: "Titanic's portholes" "Samson's chestnut brown fur". How many can you write?

Lesson 6 - Possessive Apostrophe

 

Following on from yesterday's lesson on the possessive apostrophe, we are now going to apply this skill in a descriptive sentence. For example, if you came up with the possessive apostrophe "lady's dress" you should now try to put this into a sentence. 

 

"The lady's dress is blue."

 

Challenge: Try and up-level your sentences to make them more interesting. Could you use an expanded noun phrase?

 

"The lady's beautiful, blue dress swished elegantly as she walked down the stairs."
"As the passengers began to arrive, the young lady's exquisite, elegant dress stood out from the rest."

Lesson 7 - Apprentice Write

 

An apprentice write is a chance for you to use all of the skills you have learned so far in a piece of writing. This will mainly include expanded noun phrases and possessive apostrophes but could also include commas in a list if necessary. Using the picture below from our topic book, can you write a paragraph about it using the skills you have been taught?

 

Here is the start of a model example which you may want to read beforehand to get some inspiration. 

 

“Arm in arm, an elegant, beautiful lady and a tall, majestic gentleman are walking down the magnificent, wooden staircase. The lady’s dress is a light, icy blue that swishes swiftly as she takes each step. The gentleman’s black, sturdy top hat is sitting proudly on top of his head. He’s wearing an expensive, velvet suit with an elegant, white bow tie. Hanging above them is Titanic’s grand, crystal chandelier. On the staircase’s rich, wooden wall sits a clock so the passengers can arrive to dinner on time."

 

Don't forget to think carefully about what to write and ensure you are using capital letters and full stops throughout. Try to make your writing more interesting by using varied sentence starters and adventurous vocabulary. We can't wait to read your paragraphs! Make sure you upload them to SeeSaw. We can't wait to read them!

Lesson 8 - Zone of Relevance

 

For this lesson, you will be sorting vocabulary onto a 'zone of relevance'. This involves using a bank of words on a coloured target and selecting the vocabulary you would like to use in your writing. 

The red zone is for words that we wouldn't choose to use, the yellow zone is for words that we like but could be better and the green zone is for the most impressive words. 

 

Discuss the words in the word bank below and decide which zone you would like to put them in. You may come across unfamiliar words so this is a great opportunity to expand your vocabulary and find out what they mean. For example, the word bank includes the words 'big' and 'colossal'. Colossal is a much more impressive word, so may go in the green zone whereas 'big' is not a very interesting word so may go in the red zone.

Lesson 10 – ed verbs

 

In today’s lesson we are going to be adding the ‘ed’ suffix to root words.

To begin, play a quick game of ‘Simon Says’ to recap verbs. A verb is an action word. For example: jump, sit, clap, crawl, blink, spin etc.

Once you have done this, explain to children what they have just done. For example: “You just jumped.” Ask them what two letters come at the end of the verb to tell you that something has just happened. They should respond with ‘ed’. The children have been taught that it can sound like just a ‘d’ sound but to remember it is ‘ed’.

Lesson 13/14 - Final Write

 

As we come to the end of our learning journey for our topic book ‘Samson’s Titanic Journey’, it is now time to complete a final write over the next 2 English sessions. This is an opportunity to independently use the skills that have been taught over the last 2.5 weeks in a ‘postcard from Samson’.

     

 

Samson is sending a postcard home to his friends back at the shipyard telling them all about the new luxury liner, RMS Titanic. He wants to tell them about his experience so far and what it is like to be on the most famous ship of its time.

Here is the beginning of a model example that you may want to read for inspiration before writing your postcard. Why don’t you look out for and see if you can spot the expanded noun phrases, possessive apostrophes, ed and ing verbs, adverbs, commas in a list and emotions vocabulary.

 

 

I have embarked on my greatest adventure yet! I sneaked stealthily on board the impressive, luxury liner Titanic to start a new life in America. At first, I was feeling nervous because Titanic is such a gigantic, towering ship compared to a tiny, petite mouse like me. I scurried quickly on board the spectacular ship. Crowds of excited passengers were gathered on the deck waving frantically. My heart was pounding in my chest as I scampered quickly along the promenade. I tiptoed frantically around the Third Class passengers in an effort to get the best view of the splendid sight… the majestic Titanic leaving Belfast Lough. As the journey began, I searched hurriedly for a place to rest my weary head. I climbed the magnificent, swirling staircase with the pounding footsteps of the First Class passengers thudding heavily around me. The lady’s blue, elegant dress swished above me. She wore elegant, black gloves, magnificent, shining jewellery and ruby red lipstick on her lips…

Spring Term 1 - Art and DT 

Lesson 1

Throughout our Art learning journey, we will be studying the theme 'Cityscapes and Landscapes.' We will be drawing on our topics from History 'The Titanic' and Geography 'Hot and Cold Places' for our inspiration. Let us start with Titanic's destination city, New York.

Can you create a skyline of New York using what you have at home? You may wish to cut out black paper to make a silhouette of the skyline or you could use a pencil to sketch buildings. 

Here are some images to help you...

   

Lesson 2

Can you complete an observational drawing of the Statue of Liberty? The Statue of Liberty is a famous historical landmark in New York and is a key feature of the New York Skyline. Use a sharp pencil to look carefully at the statue and draw it in detail. Remember to use the whole page. Start with a basic outline/shape before adding more detail. You may wish to cut around your Statue of Liberty and stick your drawing in front of your skyline that you created last week. 

Lesson 3

Today we are taking artist Claude Monet as our inspiration for 'Landscapes and Cityscapes.' 

Lesson Presentation Monets Garden

After looking at the slides about Monet, can you create a painting of your garden using your finger tips? You could use a cotton bud to add finer detail if you have one. If you do not have paint in your house, don't worry, you could create a drawing of your garden using colouring pencils or pens.  

Lesson 4

 Lesson Presentation Monets Cityscapes

Have a look at the Cityscapes presentation showing you some more of Monet's paintings. It also shows you how Monet uses light in his art work. Monet used his hotel window to paint the Houses of Parliament. Can you find a place in your house where you can see outside? Try to draw the houses on the street outside. Tomorrow or on another day, you could draw the same scene but choose a different time of day to see how the light changes... perhaps sunset? 

Lesson 5

Lesson Presentation Van Goghs Starry Night

Have a look at some of Van Gogh's paintings in this PowerPoint. Clear brushstrokes are a feature of his art work. Can you create a dark sky/sea painting? You may want to use the image below for inspiration. Remember to only paint the background today and we will cut out a silhouette of the Titanic next week to complete your piece.

Lesson 6 

If you have black paper at home, see if you can draw an outline of the Titanic and cut it out in order to add it on top of last week's painting. You may wish to paint/draw the Titanic instead, it is up to you! We would love to see your finished creations on SeeSaw!

Key Questions: What do you already know about RMS Titanic? What would you like to find out?

 

 

First, write down what you already know about RMS Titanic. This could include key facts, dates or general information. Don't worry if you have no prior knowledge...you will find out lots of new information soon!

Have a look and explore the attached pictures of the Titanic. What can you see? What have you seen before? Why are the pictures black and white? What image interests you the most and why? Is there anything you have not seen before? What is happening in the images? 

 

Once you have explored the images, create a bank of questions you may ask to find out more. These could be general questions or questions you could have asked the passengers, ship builders or even the Captain! For example: How big was the Titanic?

Lesson 2 - Collecting information
Key Questions: What have you found out? What new piece of information have you learned?

 

 

This lesson is an opportunity to use a variety of sources to find out new information about RMS Titanic, from its launch to its sinking. This could include the internet, Titanic books or the Titanic fact file/cards attached. Explore these sources and write down any new information you have found out or learned about RMS Titanic. Compare this to what you already knew and see how much you have learned!

Lesson 3 - Making sense of ideas.
Key Questions: Why did the Titanic sink? How long did it take for the Titanic to sink? What are the key events?

 

This lesson is an opportunity for children to make sense of the information they have learned and process this in a context. Have a look at the 'Timeline of Titanic' powerpoint and work through the key events that led to the sinking of the ship. Can you use the 'key events cutout sheet' and 'timeline worksheet' to plot these in order? Make sure you look carefully at the dates and times the events happened.

 

L3 - Timeline of Titanic 

L3 - Timeline Worksheet - This is already stuck in the History books that were delivered to you in WK1 of the lockdown.

Lesson 4 - Drawing conclusions and making own meaning
Key Questions: What were the experiences of Titanic passengers from different social backgrounds? How did the classes on board RMS Titanic differ? 

In this lesson, children will have the opportunity to explore pictures of the Titanic's cabins across first, second and first class. Can they compare the images and articulate which class the cabins would have belonged to and why? How do they differ? Which class would they have liked to stay in? 

 

Following on from this, explore the images attached of the menus from each class and the ticket prices. Which cabin would children choose to stay in now? Delve deeper and explore the images of the artefacts recovered from the shipwreck. Can children work out what they are and who they might have belonged to?

Lesson 5 - Checking, refining and developing understanding
Key Questions: Why weren't more people saved? Who is to blame for the sinking of Titanic?

 

 

In this lesson, we explore who could be to blame for the sinking of RMS Titanic! Explore the attached powerpoint which will give you an insight to 5 people who could be to blame. Read through the information and decide who you think is to blame using the 'Who is to blame' cards.

 

Can you explain why you think this?

Spring Term 1 - Science

Throughout this half term, we will be looking at forces and linking this to our Spring 1 topic 'Titanic'. In particular, we will look at and investigate 3 key ideas: 
1) Forces change how things move 2) Making forces bigger 3)Forces change shapes

Week 1
Lesson 1 - Forces: Pushes and Pulls


This lesson includes a carousel of 3 different activities to introduce children to this unit. 

 

Activity 1: Can I identify a push or pull force?
Use the sorting cards and sorting mat to see if you can identify if the image is showing a 'push' or 'pull' force. 

 

Activity 2: Can I investigate how objects move?
Find 5-10 items around the house. Can you investigate how they move? For example, a ball may roll but a fork may slide. 

 

Activity 3: Can I understand that a push, pull or twist can change the shape of objects?
You will need playdough or something similar to carry out this investigation. Using your knowledge from the experiment we carried out in our 'materials' unit, can you push, pull, twist or stretch the playdough and observe how it changes?
If you don't have this, use any household item to investigate whether you can change its shape by pushing pulling and twisting. 

 

Week 2
Lesson 2 -  Forces Investigation

 

                    

 

This lesson will be part 1 of a 2 part investigation. We will be investigating how different materials may affect how an object travels down a slope. As our topic is 'Titanic',  we will be launching the lifeboats into the water and need to work out the fastest way to do this. We will investigate which material the slope should be made from to help it travel to the water the fastest.  

 

First we need to plan our experiment! 

 

We will use our 'same, change, measure' grid to help us do this.
Same: We will keep the height of the slope and the distance to the water the same. 
Change: We will need to change the material. What materials could we use?

Measure: How could we measure how long the lifeboat takes to go down the slope and reach the water?

Use the worksheet/a piece of blank paper (or just discuss) to answer the parts in red above.

 

What material do you think will be the best for the ramp to be made from?

I predict that __________ will be the best

material because ______________________

______________________________________.

 

 Lesson 2 Investigation Worksheet Part 1

 

Week 3

Lesson 3 - Forces Investigation

 

Now that you have planned your investigation, the fun can begin! It is time to investigate the question "How will different materials affect how an object travels down a slope?". Go on a hunt for different materials in your house that you may want to use to cover your ramp. This may include fabric, paper, cardboard, card, plastic, metal (tinfoil) felt, sandpaper etc. 

 

Find something long and sturdy to create a ramp. If you were in school, we were going to use a wooden plank and lean it up against a chair or the table as demonstrated in the picture above. However, whatever you can find at home will be fine!

 

Find a toy that can act as you 'lifeboat' and something to use as a timer. Wrap each material around your ramp and time how long the ''lifeboat' takes to go down the ramp and enter the water. 

 

Which material should the ramp be made from to ensure the lifeboat can get to the water in the fastest time? You may want to use the recording sheet below or a plain piece of paper.

 

Lesson 3 Results Recording Sheet

Week 4
Lesson 4 - Forces Investigation

 

Can I investigate whether the steepness of a slope affects how far the boat will travel?

You are going to carry out the same experiment but this time change the steepness of the slope/ramp!

 

If we were in school, we would've made the ramps using the following items. It is possible that you will still be able to do the same at home, however you can make your ramps using anything you can find!
Ramp 1: 2 books

Ramp 2: 4 books

Ramp 3: Chair

Ramp 4: Table 

                 

 

Lesson 4 Worksheet

Spring Term 1 - Music 

Lesson 1

Start by completing this 'Boom Chicka Boom' warm up chant. (Parent advisory: I do apologise for the crazy video! It seemed to be the one the children may enjoy the most!) 

This half term our project in music is called 'The Storm.' 

Listen and discuss – what sequence of events is the music suggesting.

Respond by mapping dynamic development with hands – start with hands together, as the music gets louder the hands get further apart and then closer together again as the music gets quieter. 

Lesson 2

Re-watch 'The Storm.' Focus on the start of the music and the drip sound you can hear. Can you find something in your household you could use to make a drip sound? Perhaps you can invent an instrument to make the desired sound? 

Lesson 3

Today we are aiming to turn the drip sound you produced last week and turn it into a shower. First of all start of my recreating the drip sound from last week. Make a 2nd drip sound today that is different from the first. With a helper at home, sibling or an adult, can you combine both of the drip sounds to make a shower? 

Lesson 4

Develop the shower into a storm – ask the children how this could be achieved, possibly using different instruments or varying the playing technique used. The storm should have clear dynamic contrast. There may need to be a drum like instrument involved to represent claps of thunder! 

Discuss and explore ways of controlling the music – conductor/graphically notate – show dynamic development. Graphically notating means to create pictures to record what instrument to play and how loudly. For example: 

Lesson 5

Today we are going to draw upon a range of weather symbols to create our musical ideas. Have a look at the weather icons below and pick some you would like to base your piece of music on...

Just how we did with 'The Storm' create one sound first of all. Perhaps a sound to represent a rainbow in the sky, or the sun on a summer's day. Remember it does not need to actually sound like the weather because some weather is silent. Music is often representing an idea of something. You could use an object in your house to represent this sound or you can use your voice. 

Lesson 6. 

During this last lesson of the unit, we would like you to develop the concept you started last week. In the same way you built your drip into a storm. Today you can turn the sound you created last week into a final piece. Remember to try to use the same structure as the storm... starting as a quiet sound, building into a loud sound and coming back to a quiet sound again (A-B-A.) You learnt how to graphically notate in Lesson 4. Can you find a way of notating your music? We would love to see your completed masterpieces via SeeSaw or by email! 

Spring Term 1 - PSHE

Week 1 
Lesson 1 - Too Much Selfie Isn't Healthy

 

Ask you child if they think it is better to give or get from others. Explain that the 'giving' could be a gift, help, attention or time. Have a discussion. 

Then explain that giving can also involve the ways in which we care or think about others. Ask your child to list ways that they can show love for others. This could be a hug, helping someone or smiling at someone etc. Use the worksheet to draw the ways you could give love.

 

Lesson 1 Worksheet 

Week 2 
Lesson 2 - Spot the Difference!

 

This lesson is all about 'looking out' and 'being observant'. Discuss how we are part of a 'Selfie Generation' and that sometimes we can think we are the only person in the room. It is important to be observant and look out for the needs of others. 

 

To support this message, your task is to play a game of spot the difference! You may want to change something around in the room you are working in. Another idea includes playing the 'tray game' which involves laying out a number of objects on a tray, covering with a sheet, taking some items away and then asking your partner to be observant and work out what is missing. 

 

 

Can you think of something you can do this week for someone else? List them down and have a go!

Week 3 
Lesson 3 - Secret Kindness Agents

 

You have been sent a mission! You are tasked with being a 'secret kindness agent'. Open the worksheet below and read the secret mission task. Attached on page 2 of the worksheet are 'mission cards' for you to record all of the kind actions you have carried out. How many can you do without anyone knowing?

 

Lesson 3 Worksheet - Secret Agent Cards

 

Week 4
Lesson 4 - Everyday Heroes

 

This week we will be looking at everyday heroes in our community. We will be recognising and appreciating the important work that they do. Using the 'everyday hero cards' attached, play a game of 'Who am I?'. Choose one of the everyday heroes and give your partner clues to help them guess who you are. 

 

Lesson 4 Everyday Hero Cards

Week 5
Lesson 5 - My Community

 

This week we will be exploring the people who work in our community and discussing how to get their help in an emergency. Can you think of someone who helps you to stay safe? Draw this person and explain why they are important. 

Week 6
Lesson 6 - We All Fit Together

 

This week we are learning about how we are all different and unique but also how we are in some ways the same. Can you explain or find out what 'unique' means? 

Choose someone else in your house and list down what makes you the same (e.g. we all have a heartbeat, all part of the same class, all have a body….) and what makes you different (e.g. race, religion, gender).

 

Using the attached jigsaw piece, decorate it with things all about you! Your jigsaw piece will be different to everyone else because you are unique but all of our puzzle pieces will fit together. 

 

Lesson 6 Puzzle Piece

 

Spring Term 1 - Computing

Lesson 1 

Human Crane 

This half term in Computing we would have been using beebots for programming. Instead we will aim to deliver programming lessons through a range of different media. Today we are going to start with 'Human Crane.' 

Human Crane Plan

Some of the detail in this plan is quite complicated however please do not worry! The main concept we would like the children to understand is that an algorithm is a precise set of instructions to solve a problem. Can you use the challenge cards below to make a program? See if another person carry out your sequence. Does your program work or do you need to make corrections (debug)? You will need lego (or another small object), arrow cards either download from the link below or make your own and plastic bowls.

Human Crane Cards

Human Crane Challenges

Lesson 2

Purple Mash 2Go

Well done for computing last week! We saw some excellent human crane algorithms going on via SeeSaw. This week we are going to continue using these skills. Log on to Purple Mash using the class password and user name (this should be your class name with no capital letters). From the main home page click computing - then - 2 Go (it should have arrow icons). Once you are in 2Go, you can choose from a range of backgrounds. Have a flick through the selection and pick your favourite picture. There may be two or three you want to try! In the top right hand corner there should be a green film icon where you can watch the introduction video. Once you have watched the introduction, can you direct the icon to the different parts of the picture? Use a different colour to move to a range of destinations. 

Can you direct a partner using directional language? Can a partner direct you using directional language? 

 

Lesson 3

Purple Mash 2Go

Log on to Purple Mash and revisit 2go. Last week you should have completed the introduction and had a play around with the programme. Today we are going to try some challenges! Once you open up 2go you should see a large screen with challenges in the bottom left, as below.

Click on the Challenges Cup. 

Complete Challenge 1- Find the Treasure and Challenge 2- See the Sights.

Please don't go ahead as we will be trying Challenge 3 and 4 next week. 

In Challenge 2 you will be introduced to programming a number for each instruction. Remember to debug if not successful first time! You do not need to save your work but if you would like to take a picture and upload to SeeSaw that is fine.

Lesson 4 

Purple Mash 2Go

Follow the same stages as last week to get you onto the Challenges part of the app. 

This week carry out Challenge 3 - To the Lighthouse and Challenge 4 - Live to tell the Tale 

When completing these challenges, press the arrow key and then the number of steps you need the icon to travel. Saving the programming is not necessary.

On Challenge 4, please select the arrow layout as this will be familiar to the children, as below. 

Lesson 5 

Rapid Router

Type Rapid Router into Google. Click on Rapid Router- Code for Life the top link on the search page. Once you are onto Rapid Router, you should see Getting Started. We are not going to log on as the initial lessons on Rapid Router are to become familiar with the concepts before programming again in the Summer Term. 

Click Getting Started Levels 1-12. Today our aim is complete levels 1 to 5. 

Begin by dragging the forwards blocks across to latch on to the 'Start' button. Once you have done this press 'play.' Sometimes the children won't have got the algorithm correct and will need to try again by debugging before pressing play again to see if they are successful. Stop at Level 5. 

Lesson 6 

Rapid Router 

Try Level 6, 7, 8 to test your new skills using Rapid Router.

You can go up to Level 12 if you are feeling confident however we will be recapping in Summer Term.

 If you would like more programming opportunities perhaps try ScratchJr. or Daisy the Dinosaur (iPad/iPhone/Apple.) Both available for free on app stores. 

Spring Term 1 - RE  

Theme/Unit: People Jesus Met 

Lesson 1. 

In RE this term, we are learning about change. Today our focus is identifying and talking about different types of change. With someone at home, talk about anything that changes. Can you or your parent write down some ideas? Has anything about you changed? Perhaps you couldn't ride a bike before and now you can! 

Listen to 'Fletcher and the Falling Leaves,' a story that illustrates change and discuss with an adult. 

Can you draw a picture of a change in your own life? We would love to see some drawings on SeeSaw!

Lesson 2.

Continuing on our theme of change, today our focus is how does change affect our lives. Discuss is there anything you would like to change? It could be about yourself, something in school or something in the world. You or your parent could jot down some ideas. Key question: are changes always good? Can some changes make us feel sad or scared? Today we would like you to draw two small pictures, one before and one after a change e.g. getting a dog or moving house. 

Lesson 3

For today's RE lesson, our learning intention is to identify and talk about the meaning of change and different types of change. What does change mean? What are different types of change? Perhaps thinking more widely in this lesson and making links to nature, people, weather, attitudes/ideas or computers. 

By typing '4 seasons drawing' into google you will find some drawing ideas to represent the four seasons or you could think about how you could represent some of your own ideas you have thought of through discussion. 

Lesson 4 

Today we are recognising that Christian's believe that Jesus changes some people's lives 

Read Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10) bible story and attached PowerPoint 

Zacchaeus-the-Tax-Collector-Bible-Story

Zacchaeus-the-Tax-Collector-Bible-Story-Powerpoint

You can always watch the short story here: 

What happened that changed for Zacchaeus? How did Zacchaeus feel before and after? What made Zacchaeus change? 

Can you fill in this story board in your own words? 

You can choose a story template below to show your version of the story. 

Story-Templates

Lesson 5 

Today we are continuing our theme of change, specifically recognising that Christians believe that Jesus changes some people's lives.

Part 1. Read Jairus' daughter (Matthew 9:18, 19:23-26, Mark 5:22-24, 35-43, Luke 8:41, 42, 49-56) 

Jairus-Daughter-Powerpoint

What part of the story do you think is most important? Why? How do you think Jesus did this? How did the father feel before and after? What do you think the people watching thought? Open discussion. 

Part 2. Read 'The Blind Man' (John 9:1-34)

Jesus-heals-a-blind-man-bible-powerpoint-story

Continue discussion: What change happened? What did the blind man feel and think before? What did he think after? 

The most important aspect of the lesson is digesting the story and having discussions. If you would like to as an extension task you could write a thank you letter to Jesus from either Jairus, his daughter or the blind man. 

Lesson 6

This is our final lesson on our People Jesus Met learning journey with the theme of change. We are aiming to be able to talk about why the idea of Jesus being able to change people is important to Christians. Reflect on the stories we looked at last week. You may wish to watch the videos and PowerPoints above again. Now think about no change happening in those stories/ no change occuring at all. What difference would that make? How would people feel about Jesus if you could not change people? What do you think about the way Jesus changed people's lives? 

Complete a speech bubble which says 'The idea of Jesus changing people is important because...'

Lesson 3 - Commas in a List 

 

Today we look at how we can use the comma to separate items in a list. Children will be introduced to the rule that when writing a list, you should put a comma in between each item, except for the last when you use 'and'.

For example: "The Titanic’s passengers packed their suitcases which included a frock , a top hat , a hair brush and a vanity case." 

Have a go at inserting the commas in the correct place in the text extracts on the worksheet.
