Blakeney’s Week Ahead 15th November


Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well. If you are self-isolating at home, you can keep up with what we are doing at school by following the daily timetable of work as set out below.

Maths notes: Please remember that you can login to ‘Tackling Tables’ to practise your times tables. You should be able to find premade flash cards on that website.

Education City notes: If you go to classwork, there are three folders where you can take assessments in Maths, English and Reading. After doing the assessments, Education City will then provide you with revision work that is designed to meet your individual needs. That’s right, by doing the assessments, the activities provided will be tailor made just for you!

Printing notes: Problems with printing? You won’t need to print anything off if you don’t want to. You can do it all by looking at the work on the computer and taking notes in a notebook.

Feedback: Remember to send a copy of your work to me by the end of the week or daily.

Keep in touch and let me know if you have any problems. I look forward to seeing you back at school soon! Take care.

13:30-14:15 D&T (Architecture Through Time)

Introduction – 

What do we know about architecture over time? In this lesson, you find out about some of the different architectural designs across history. Start by thinking about these questions: 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?

Now look at video – a brief timeline of architectural style to set the scene – have you seen anything like any of these?

Which styles do we like/dislike? Why?  Choose one of your favourite styles from the video and research by completing this phrase in the search box: ‘archectural style of ______________’

14:15-15:00 Music

In this lesson your task will be to Perform

Before you start, try some vocal warmups  : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-3i2CJQo4I

Then learn how to sing with emotion and expression. This video is great in teaching you how to communicate meaning when singing but also how to breathe naturally: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wN4Cg_FJCa4

Now apply what you learn to doing the following:

  • Repeat the song Livin’ on a Prayer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDK9QqIzhwk several times until you can sing or play from memory with confidence.
  • Sing expressively and in tune.
  • Perform with controlled breathing (voice) 

Lyrics:

Once upon a time not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks, union’s been on strike
He’s down on his luck, it’s tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day working for her man
She brings home her pay, for love, for love

She says, we’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot for love
We’ll give it a shot

Woah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayer

Tommy’s got his six-string in hock
Now he’s holding in what he used to make it talk
So tough, it’s tough
Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night, Tommy whispers
Baby, it’s okay, someday

We’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a…

Tuesday

 8.45 – 9.00 Mental Maths practise (practise your x 7 multiplication tables. Put them on flash cards – questions one side and answer the back. Just use scrap paper. Test yourself. )

9 – 10 Power Maths Unit 5 Lesson 7.  Tuesday

Break – snack

10.15 – 11.15 English (Tool Box)

Starter: Remind yourself of the story by looking at your story map from last week. Can you tell the story to a learning partner? Don’t worry if you’re not word for word accurate.

Main task: As you know, this term we are writing a warning story based on Pie Corbett’s The Caravan. But what makes a good warning story? Complete a toolbox list or mindmap that shows the things you can do to write an effective warning story. Not sure what a mindmap looks like? Look at this:

In the middle, you write ‘what makes a good warning story?’ and in the outside shapes, you write examples you find in The Caravan. For example, you could write – the MC is given a warning in the opening paragraph.

But also think about what sort of writing features can you see in the model text? For example, does Corbett use a range of sentence structures? Which ones? Does he use fronted adverbials? What else? What sort of words does he use? How does he organise the story?

11.15 – 11.45 – Spelling and Handwriting Practice – using your spelling list for this week, practise writing the words in cursive script. Remember – in Year 5, you are expected to join your handwriting.

 Who were the Anglo Saxons and where did they come from? In this lesson that we are doing at school, you will look at the Anglo-Saxons who settled in the British Isles a long time ago. Many of us have Anglo-Saxon ancestors yet they were originally ‘invaders’. Does that make us ‘migrants’? Follow the lesson on this powerpoint: Lesson1AngloSaxonsPPTKS2History

If you would like a taught lesson, this is an interesting resource from Oak Academy – an enquiry into How Dark was the Dark Ages – meaning, how much information do we have about this time in our past?
