Computing

The computing work for this week is here: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/whatmakes-a-goodwebsite-c9gkcc

This week it is all about exploring and reviewing existing websites and evaluating their content and that websites are created using HTML code.

The lesson is made up of:

• Video
• Worksheet
• Quiz

 

Literacy

We are going to write our Monster Report at the end of the week, but there are a few activities you need to do first if you are going to produce the best report you can.

Here is a video clip that explains how to write a report. It tells you to use sub-headings, but I don’t want you to do that. I need you to use topic sentences instead.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4rNkcTqT6I

I have also found a clip from a real journalist on how she structures a report. She talks about why a plan is important and how important proof-reading (checking your work) is.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks1-ks2-how-to-write-a-non-chronological-report/zvbtscw

Watch these and then do the activities below. You will need all this knowledge to write the best report you can!

Monday: First you need to think about formality – how formal your report needs to be. Formality activity

Tuesday: Then we need to think about how we will begin each paragraph. (We mentioned this in class.) Topic sentences activity

Wednesday: Now we can start to think about ideas we might want to use for our own invented monster. New Ideas activity

The next thing to do is to draw our monster and annotate our drawing. (Remember ‘annotate’ means to write notes around our work. We need to make sure we use our ideas – that we wrote in the last activity –  to tell us what to draw. It is that information we use to annotate our text.) Remember to colour your drawing to bring your monster ‘to life’!

Thursday: Then onto our plan (the ‘map’ for our writing). Plan your text

Friday: Now follow these guidelines now it’s time to write your monster report and you have everything you need to produce a top quality information report on your monster.

Here is the original text Swamp Monsters model text and the vocabulary that we looked at Match the vocabulary to its definition in case you need them.

Make sure your work is neatly presented using your neatest handwriting. Remember you can include pictures and diagrams if you wish.

Work hard and I look forward to reading your amazing, inventive Monster Report!

Here is a reading comprehension for you to do. Year 5-6 Reading extract and questions – Jabberwocky  there are 2 different sets of questions – set A and set B. Do them both. This should take you 2 days; one day for each set of questions. You can choose which day you do these on. When you have finished – and only when you have finished – the answers are at the end. How did you do? Use the answers to show you how you should have answered. Don’t worry if you don’t do so well, this is here for you to learn from. Have a go!

Our Design and Technology work this half term is about how architecture has changed over time. This week we will be looking at what do we know about architecture over time.

Has the design of buildings changed over time? What do you know about this? Are their any examples of different building styles in King’s Lynn?

Look at video – a brief timeline of architectural style to set the scene – have we seen anything like any of these? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7Eu_ug2ZpY

Which styles do we like/dislike? Why?

Remember, if there is anything I can do for you, please email me: M.Nordloh@gf.kwestacademy.com

Have a lovely week 🙂
