Blakeney’s Week Ahead Monday 1st February


Blakeney’s Week Ahead Monday 1st February 2021

General Notes (new, easier lesson plan format)

These are the remote learning notes for the week. As you read through, you will notice that the daily lessons follow the same timetable that we use at school in the morning.

You should ensure you try to complete the morning work every day. This is the minimum that is expected.

In the afternoons, you will not need to follow the usual timetable at school. Instead, you can choose which subjects you want to work on each day from Topic, Science, Computing, RE, Art, Music and PE. The instructions for these afternoon lessons are at the bottom of the blog. You should choose at least one of these subjects to work on every day. However, the choice is yours as to which subject and when. If you wish to follow the school timetable as before, please feel free to do that.

Please send your work in for me to check, either as a photograph or an attachment. Send it to a.black@gf.kwestacademy.com

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

Today, you will read a short text about orangutans. Read the full text before attempting the questions. You will be asked questions about some of the more difficult words. Try not to use a dictionary or an adult – instead, try to get a sense of the word by looking at the context (the sentence/s around it) and by using your knowledge of orangutans to help you choose the correct answer. Good luck!

Do the homophone match-up worksheet:Homophones Match Up

11.30 – 12.00 – Reading Comprehension (Vocabulary in Context)

The reading text today is a beautiful setting description. We have done lots of setting descriptions in class and have used powerful verbs and adjectives to describe the scene. This text does the same. There are some big new words in there because you are going to try to apply your new skill of ‘understanding new vocabulary in their context’. For example, when you read –  ‘a balmy breeze whispered through the trees’ – you will probably not know the meaning of the word ‘balmy’. However, you know that if a breeze whispered through trees it would not be a strong wind. It would be gentle. Therefore, we can conclude that ‘balmy’ means something like soft or gentle. This knowledge will help you choose the correct answer. Be a detective – look at the clues in the sentence that will help you solve the mystery of the new vocabulary!

9 – 10 Power Maths Unit 9 Lesson 3 (Adding and subtracting fractions)

Challenge Lesson for this week: Continue with your home learning booklet

Support lessons for this week (see Monday instructions and resources)

Oak Academy Teacher-led recorded lesson (optional):https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/add-and-subtract-fractions-with-a-common-denominator-improper-fractions-6cw62d

Break – snack

10.15 – 11.15 – English – Follow the lesson planning for Friday on the powerpoint.

11.15 – 11.45 Reading Comprehension work (Vocabulary in Context) 

The reading today is an extract from a story. Again, you will be practising your skills for understanding new vocabulary in context. We are trying to learn how to look for clues in the sentence/s around the word which help us understand the meaning of new words. For example, “Anastasia Borkin bustled into the meeting late, leaving the featureless security guard to close the door behind her. ” We might not know the word ‘bustled’ but we know that the main character is late and that it’s an important meeting as there is a security guard. Therefore, we can get a picture in our minds of the way she enters the room. Bustled probably means something like ‘rushed’. Knowing this will help you choose the closest answer.

Quiz 3: Test 3 (1)

11.45 – 12.00 Spelling test – ask someone to test you on your word list. For this, they will need to use the words in a sentence for you to know which homophone they want you to write. Or they could give you a definition from the Match-Up sheet you did yesterday and you must listen to the definition and write the correct spelling for it from memory.

Art (Who was Piet Mondrian? )

Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) was a Dutch artist who remains well known for his abstract paintings, many of which use squares and rectangles. In 1917, he was part of a group of four Dutch artists called ‘De Stijl’ who all worked in an abstract style and reduced their paintings to straight lines, plane surfaces, rectangles and primary colours combined with black, grey and white. Mondrian’s designs have been used as inspiration for fashion, including six cocktail dresses designed by the famous designer Yves St Laurent, in 1965 

 

Watch youtube clip for a quick summary of Mondrian’s style. Then go through Tate presentation:  

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

https://www.tate.org.uk/kids/explore/who-is/who-piet-mondrian  

POP tasks 

Give an example of how Mondrian’s use of media and materials has led to his art being used by a fashion designer.  

Why did Mondrian use strips of transparent paper? What other materials did Mondrian use and how did he use them? 

Why is Mondrian’s painting Composition C with Red, Yellow and Blue typical of his style?  

Describe how Mondrian thought about his choice and location of colour.  

What important effects did Mondrian try to create with his artwork?  

Which two features did Mondrian continually explore with his designs?  

What changes did he make to the lines he used within his designs? 

 

Music (Signed Performance): Create a signed song.

Objectives:

  • Compose and perform melodic signed song.
  • Create signed movements that communicate meaning and emotion of verses and chorus. 

In previous weeks, we have studied how performers sign songs rhythmically with hands, bodies and expressions in order to communicate a message. This week, you will choose a song of your own and create signed movements of your own to effectively convey the message of the song.

You can perform the song to an adult or sibling. Alternatively, ask an adult to film it and send it to me!
