Welcome Winterton to week beginning 1st February 2021


will soon be here!

Welcome to the first week of February!

We have more work to get through this week. Please make sure you send me your work daily where you can. It makes it so much easier to open each email, open each piece, save it and give you any feedback required, if I only have up to 6 pieces from each of you. So many more of you are sending all your work in each day (at least maths, literacy, spelling or reading comprehension every day). Well done to you all. If you have a problem with anything, email me.

Where can I find the Power Maths resources?

Both maths groups will need this link from now on.

The practice book and the text book are now available directly from the website:  www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0  Click on ‘Log in’. Your username is your first name, plus the first letter of your surname – all lower case, no spaces. (For example, if your name was Sam Brown, your username would be samb). Your password is your class name, all lower case (winterton). School code: HCCT

Write a Cold Task for a discussion text. Remember that this is a non-fiction task where you write a balanced argument such as – Should Children Be Able To Go To Bed At Any Time They Want To? You need to write points for and against the argument, saying why it is a good idea and why it is a bad idea. You can watch this video clip if you don’t know what the Daleks are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqFz4BrrLn0

Then play this game with someone else to ‘warm-up’ your brain to think about the text:

Signpost games: 

‘We are discussing whether or not’… eg ‘dragons exist’ or ‘unicorns can fly’ etc 

Child A – ‘The main reason for suggesting that … (unicorns do not make good pets) Child B – …is that they bite. 

Child A – ‘We believe … (unicorns are bad)  Child B … because … (they poke people with their horns) 

Who can add an additional point? 

Eg ‘also … (they have very sharp hooves) Use furthermore/in addition/also/moreover etc. 

Child A – I believe in … (unicorns because their horns have been found) Child B – On the other hand … (no-one has ever seen one)  

Use:  however/although/alternatively/whereas etc to add additional points.

Music:

Create a signed song.

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!

Computing: Touch Typing 

We are moving away from coding for a while due to some issues we have been having with the Scratch website. Instead, you will be able to brush up on your touch-typing skills – this will be invaluable as you move forward in your education. Typing at speed will really set you up well for all those assignments you’ll need to write in secondary school!

Go to this website: https://www.typingclub.com/

It’s an absolutely brilliant way of learning to touch type by having fun. I’ve tried it and really enjoyed it.

Power Maths – Unit 10 Lesson 3 – tenths (3) (This is the work you need to do and send to me today.)

Literacy:

Complete: cloze procedure: (This will make you think of good vocabulary that you can use.)

Cloze procedure 

_____________________ there is a hardcore section of the community who think that the idea of aliens visiting King’s Lynn is ridiculous. ____________________, these people believe that it is hard enough to encourage visitors from local towns to visit and shop, let alone anyone from a million light years away! _____________________they believe that the crop circles are man-made ______________ ,they suggest that sightings of spaceships  are caused by atmospheric pressure changes ___________________ they dismiss reports of alien abduction as being impossible. 

Then do What is good writing? Say which you think is the most effective writing AND why you think that – remember to use evidence from the text.

What makes ’good’ writing? 

Text A: The most compelling argument against only providing healthy food at lunchtime is that many of us just don’t want to eat it. When you are picturing a luscious hamburger encircled by crisp golden chips’ it’s really depressing to know that all you have to choose from is limp lettuce leaves surrounded by assorted cold crunchy so-called healthy options. It’s enough to make you want to give up eating. 

 Text B: Well, most of us are fed up with having to eat salad and vegetables and healthy stuff like that all the time because it’s like boring and then you don’t want to be bothered with eating it and then you think why can’t I have crisps and chocolate. 

 Text C: A key problem with only providing healthy food at lunchtime is that many of us do not like it. We would much prefer to have some of our favourite foods like hamburgers, pizza, chips and chocolate, rather than having to eat salad and fruit all the time. 

And finally

SEQUENCING TEXT  – put these paragraphs in the correct order.

On the other hand, some people argue that Jack was on the edge of starvation and was forced to steal in order to save his dying mother. Furthermore, it could be argued that the giant was a danger to the local area and had been responsible for stealing sheep and cattle to feed himself and his wife, Indeed, some people believe that Jack should be further rewarded for ridding the locality of this terrible creature. 

Having considered all the arguments, I believe that while stealing should normally be punished, on this occasion Jack acted in the best interests of his family and the local area. 

Many people think that Jack should be sent to jail because he stole the giant’s magical goose that lays golden eggs. Additionally, he returned to the giant’s castle and took a never-ending purse plus the giant’s talking harp. Furthermore, he was responsible for killing the giant. 

We have been discussing whether or not Jack should have been imprisoned for theft.

R.E.

In this lesson, we will explore how we should treat people and reflect on our own views. We will also consider how Christians and non-religious people think we should treat people. Read through the lesson and complete the tasks on this worksheet. You will also need the story of the Good Samaritan during the lesson:

RE Lesson

RE Good Samaritan differentiated reading

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?
