Welcome Winterton to the new week beginning Mon 9.11.20
Good morning Everyone and welcome to a new week!
Below you will find Winterton’s Home Learning Timetable (click on link), so if you need to self-isolate you know what to do each day. You can also use the work included in this blog to consolidate or review any learning that we have done in class if you need a reminder.i
If you have any problems, please email me at the address at the top of the page.
So here goes for this week …!
Monday – today we will be looking at writing an effective setting for an opening to a story. Watch this lesson as it will help you think about what is needed to do that.
We are going to be writing about this image: https://www.literacyshed.com/the-images-shed.html (Choose one of the Winter Scene images at the top of this page) and not Victorian London, so make sure you thinking about that when you watch this lesson. Begin by collecting vocabulary for the image – just a list of words that you can think of that describe the image you have chosen.
Use the things you have learnt about in this lesson to write your own effective description of the setting of the winter image you have chosen.
Homophones and near homophones. (Nouns that end in -ce/-cy and verbs that end in -se/-sy.)
Here is a word search so you can practise your words! – Word Search and a handwriting sheet – Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet so you can practise your handwriting as well. You can also put these words into a sentence – one sentence for each word.
Tuesday – today we will be writing an effective setting again, but this time using a different image.
This is the image we will be using today: https://www.onceuponapicture.co.uk/portfolio_page/rescue-from-the-storm/ As yesterday, begin by collecting vocabulary for the image – just a list of words that you can think of that describe the image you have chosen.
Again, use the things you have learnt about in this lesson to write your own effective description of the setting of the winter image you have chosen.

Wednesday – today you will be writing your Cold Task. You know what a Cold Task is as you have written many of these.
Today’s Cold Task will be a warning story. Think of all the stories that you know of that are warning stories – Little Red Riding Hood is just one example; there are many more. Give yourself 1 hour to write your Cold Task – you need to take all of this time to write effectively. You have already learnt about writing a good description of a setting. Where will your warning story be set? What will happen in your warning story. Think hard about what you want your reader to feel when they read your story.

Thursday – today you will read the model text ‘The caravan’.
Here is a copy of the text. The Caravan text
Read it out loud with an adult in your house. Are there any words you don’t know the meaning of? Look them up in a dictionary or Google them. Write down all the words that you are unsure of, with their meaning written beside them. Can you put these words into new sentences? Can you think of antonyms and synonyms for these words? Write them down. Think about how you will present this work in a neat, clear and logical way.
Reading: Year 5-6 Reading extract and questions – Major Fourpaws SET A questions
Friday – today you will complete a ‘Tell-me-square’.
Remember you will need to draw a 2-by-2 grid and in each square you need to write the subtitle. Top left section is ‘Likes’, top right is ‘Dislikes’, bottom left is ‘Links’ (links to other stories you know like this – think back to the beginning of the week) and bottom right is ‘Questions’. Questions that you would like to ask the author or one of the characters in The Caravan.

In this lesson, you will be learning about reflection! We will learn about reflective and non-reflective materials and their uses. Then we will look at two different types of reflection: specular and diffuse reflection. Then we will learn the law of reflection. For this lesson, you will need a pencil, a piece of paper and a ruler.
Then go onto the next activity: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zfc8qnb
This is focused on reflection and refraction of light. There are:
- three videos to watch
- three activities to enhance understanding of reflection and refraction of light
That should keep you busy!
Don’t forget Education City – look in and complete work for Winterton Fractions – and also log in to Tackling Tables and practise your tables.
If you are working at home – keep well and we are thinking about you.
See you soon
Mrs. M 🙂
