You’ve made it to Friday – well done Winterton!

Posted on Friday, November 27th, 2020

Good afternoon everyone. I hope you are reading this either before or after completing your homework for this week. Another week has finished and only 3 more until Christmas! Well done everyone for working hard again this week – you have all covered a lot during the week. Can you list all the things you have learnt?

Anyway here are the congratulations for this week. Is your name here, if not what can you do to get a mention next week?

Education City

A huge well done to all the people that completed all their work that was set last week – Klevi, Azuolas, Evelyn, Kimberly and Theo and Brodie who have begun their work.  Those who haven’t done it yet; you have until tomorrow to do it.

Tackling Tables

Well done to all those who have gone up to the next level this week – Kai, Kimberley, Grace, Stephanie, Evie, Enija, Evelyn, Lilly-May, Joanna, Erin and Theo. Also to Klevi, who not only went up to the next level, but progressed from green level to red level (the first one in the class to do so)!

Special mentions this week go to Erin, who is proving to be class star in tidying up! To Joanna who has become the ‘self-registration monitor’ doing an important and very useful job for me. Also to Arminas who is certainly the class star in homework, as he has yet again produced an excellent piece of homework for every day this week. Well done Erin, Joanna and Arminas who have gone ‘over and above’.

Speaking of homework – only 5 people didn’t hand in their homework this week – well done the rest of you. A special thank you to those of you that email it to me over the weekend – it is there waiting for me on Monday morning so I can tick your names off on the homework chart. I know it is not possible for all of you to email work, so if you are not able to email me, thank you for putting your work on my desk first thing on Monday so I can see it. Remember, Friday afternoon is not ‘time off’, it is time when you work at home. To know you have done this, I need to see your homework.

Here is some of the homework I have been sent this week:

TESCO Arminas  SCHOOL TRIP Arminas  Arminas 3   Holiday on ICE Arminas  MOUNTAIN CLIMBING_ Grace

 

News

Swimming will be for group C and D this week.

Christmas news! The Christmas card post box will be out on Monday. To make sure we can quarantine cards, you can only post cards on a Monday and Thursday as we need to leave the cards for 72 hours between posting and delivery. Make sure you bring your cards on a Monday or Thursday as you will not be able to post on any other day. This starts this coming Monday 30th November and will be available every Monday and Thursday up to the end of term.

If you read this far, come and tell me first thing on Monday morning and I will give you a reward.

Have a good weekend and see you all on Monday

Topic – Monday 23.11.20:

Look at maps A and B. British Empire maps A and B

What do they show? (The development of British Empire over time, from the 17th century up to the 19th century.) 

In the empire Britain would have gained control of other countries through trade and settlement and then they would have overall control.  

Which countries did Britain control by the 19th century?

Some of these countries have English as the national language because of the historic links to migration from the UK to other parts of the worldIn India, they speak Hindi or Urdu but English is spoken by most educated people. What other things might we have taken with us to change these other countries?  

 

Dr. Jessica Truman, an archaeologist, has recently made a wonderful discovery at a London excavation site in Hackney. She found an old wooden chest and she believes the information inside holds information about some colonial people and why they may have migrated to Britain.  

 

Activity: Mystery ChestMystery trunk artefacts 1 Mystery trunk artefacts 2

Read the label – It is an address for Karthika Singh, Calcutta, India dated 1909. What do we learn about the owner from that.  

 Now look inside at the objects that belonged to Karthika. Find out as much information as possible about who she was and why she migrated to England from India. 

 Her Story: Karthika is from Calcutta. Her brother was Adesh Singh who went to Britain as a lascar (sailor on a steam ship) and then worked for an English officer before he died, then street musician. He married an English maid as not many Indian women in Britain at that time. Karthika worked on a tea plantation but came to England to work as a maid.   

What was good about England that made people want to come?

(The promise of the empire – powerful images in newspapers and adverts. Possibly desire for adventure on steam ships. Jobs.)

What was difficult in India that made people want to come?

(Life was hard in India. Work was hard too. British encouraged them to go.) 

 Not all migrants from the colonies did so badly. Read about Sake Dean Mohamad at this link:  

https://www.bl.uk/asians-in-britain/articles/making-home-in-britain 

 

Summing up basic: List any ways that we changed the lives of Indian people? List ways that they changed our lives.

Summing up advancing: How different were the lives of British and Indian migrants?  

Summing up deep: Were all Indian migrants treated poorly by the British? Were all British people a higher status to the Indian migrants? Have you seen enough evidence to know? 

 

Computing – Tuesday 24.11.20:

Part 2 of last week’s lesson.  This week you will actually be putting images on your webpage.

Last week you looked at the terms ‘fair use’ and ‘copyright’. This week you use copyright-free images and will find appropriate images to use in your work.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/copyright-or-copywrong-60tkgc

 

D and T – Wednesday 25.11.20

Gargoyles

What are they? What is their purpose? How are they suited to their design?

Watch youtube about gargoyles. Use ‘gargoyle’ design sheet as a prompt to design own gargoyle -Gargoyles

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RmaBnm3qoU

 

Music –  Wednesday 25.11.20

True Colours in Sign Language (True Colours – Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake – Trolls – SignSing) 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r25auE4eC2o

PERFORMANCE TASK

1 – Watch and study the way the words are communicated with sign language. What else does the performer use apart from his hands?

2- Watch again and see if you can join in when you feel as though you remember a sign.

  1. Watch it again, adding more signs as you do so.
  2. Stop and look at the lyrics without watching the video. Can you sign as you read?

True Colours Anna KendrickJustin Timberlake

You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged, oh I realize
It’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
The darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

Show me a smile then
Don’t be unhappy
Can’t remember when
I last saw you laughing
This world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
Just call me up
‘Cause I will always be there

And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you

So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
I see your true colors
Shining through (true colors)
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful (they’re beautiful)
Like a rainbow
Oh oh oh oh oh…

 

Science – Thursday 19.11.20

In this lesson, you will be learning how we can see different colours. At the end of the lesson there will be a chance to try creating your own rainbow by refracting light! You will need a piece of paper and a pencil for this lesson. If you would like to try making your own rainbow then you will also need a transparent glass of water or an old CD. You can still take part in the lesson if you do not have these items.

Literacy:

Monday 16.11.20 – today you will read the model text ‘The caravan’.

Here is a copy of the text. The Caravan text

I have also put a story map here to help you with the reading of the text – story map The Caravan

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.

Spelling:  adjectives ending in -ant and nouns ending in -ance/-ancy

observant  observance

expectant  expectancy

hesitant  hesitancy

tolerant  tolerance

relevant  relevance

Here is a word search that includes the relevant words so you can practise – Word Search Black and White – and a handwriting sheet – Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet so you can practise your handwriting as well. Do not be hesitant in doing this. You can also put these words into a sentence – one sentence for each word. Be observant when doing this to make sure you spell the words correctly!

Reading: Year 5-6 Reading extract and questions – Circulation  SET B questions

Thursday 19.11.20 – today we will be looking at devising a toolkit for  The Caravan

You need to read The Caravan again and find the techniques the author has used to make this an effective warning story. Look carefully, be observant to find relevant points. Looking at the boxing up will help you with this task. Also think about what tense you need to write in; look at how descriptive is used; how are the characters described?

Reading: Year 5-6 Reading extract and questions – My Shadow  SET A questions

Friday 20.11.20 – today we are learning about modal verbs – how to recognise them and how to use them

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.

D and T – Wednesday 18.11.20

Use ‘Architectural Design Sheet’ resource -Architectural-Design-Sheet (1) as a prompt to design own building. Think about all the different architects we looked at last week and the distinguishing features of their work – will you use any of these? Or will you use features of the periods we looked at – renaissance or art-deco? How practical will your design be? Will people actually be able to use it?

 

Science – Thursday 19.11.20

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/what-is-refraction-and-how-can-we-use-it-cmv34e?from_query=refraction

Welcome Winterton to the new week beginning Mon 9.11.20

Posted on Friday, November 6th, 2020

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 …!

Winterton Home Learning Timetable

Literacy:

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.

https://teachers.thenational.academy/lessons/to-write-a-setting-description-part-1-6gup2c

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.

Spelling:

Homophones and near homophones. (Nouns that end in -ce/-cy and verbs that end in -se/-sy.)

advice

advise

device

devise

licence

license

practice

practise

prophecy

prophesy

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.

https://teachers.thenational.academy/lessons/to-write-a-setting-description-part-2-74t3ad

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.

Reading: Year 5-6 Reading extract and questions – Beethoven’s Hard Life  SET A questions

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.

Reading: Year 5-6 Reading extract and questions – Beethoven’s Hard Life  SET B questions

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.

Welcome back Winterton. Here is week beginning Monday 2.11.20!

Posted on Monday, November 2nd, 2020

Hello Winterton

I hope you have all had a lovely half term break and are feeling relaxed and energised! We have a lot to do before Christmas and only 7 weeks to do it in. This week’s work is below. There are lessons to watch, video clips to look at and learning activities to complete. There is also work set on Education City (Winterton wb 2.11.20) for you to complete. (You should all have your ED.City logins. If you haven’t, let me know and I can email it to you.) Don’t forget you also need to practice your tables using Tackling Tables site.

This is what we will be looking at this week:

Literacy:

The above pictures are ideas only – feel free to think of your own monster.

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.

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 2.11.20

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

Tuesday 3.11.20

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

Wednesday 4.11.20

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 5.11.20

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

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-plan-the-opening-of-a-non-chronological-report-6dk6ce

Friday 6.11.20

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.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-write-the-opening-of-a-non-chronological-report-68u3ce

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!

Your spellings this week are ‘ambitious synonyms’: (can you remember what a synonym is?)

aggressive

hostile

awkward

obstinate

desperate

frantic

disastrous

calamitous

marvellous

spectacular

You may have to look these up in a dictionary, or use Google, to find the meanings – but think how good your writing will be when you can confidently use these words! When you have written them out neatly, put them into sentences – one sentence for each word.

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!

 

Numeracy:

If you would like the PowerPoints for the Power Maths lessons, please email me and I will send them to you.  It has everything you need to complete the lesson. It even has the answers!

Here is our computing work for this week:

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

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 we will be using this material in class this week. If you do what you need to each day, you will not fall behind in your learning. If you are well, then remember to exercise everyday to keep fit and healthy. What games will you play outside instead of PE? What will you have for your lunch? Swimming maybe a little difficult though!

Keep safe

Mrs. M 🙂

 

Well done Winterton – Friday 23.10.20

Posted on Friday, October 23rd, 2020

So hello Winterton. Well we finally got to the end of the first half term. I’ve been thinking back over these last 7 weeks that we have been in school. You have all done amazingly well! Think how much you have learnt in just 7 weeks:

  • We have covered 3 units in maths: place value and number, 4 operations and reasoning.

  • In literacy we have done a whole unit of narrative writing concentrating on poetry and portal stories. We have even begun a new unit on informative writing about monsters.

  • Remember yesterday, when we watched the science clip and it showed us everything we had learnt about space and the Earth – the names of the planets and what they are made of; how they rotate and orbit the sun; about night and day and latitude, longitude and time zones, and also about satellites and NASA missions to take photos of the Sun.

  • In topic you have learnt loads about the oceans and oceanographers, how the oceans are becoming polluted; about gyres and how they move rubbish around the globe. About single use plastics and how we can replace and recycle; and also how how to be a good citizen and reduce how we pollute the earth.

  • In RE we have discussed how different religions deal with the concept of peace and conflict, and we thought about our own views on this.

  • You have studied Pop Art and some of the leading artists across the world, especially Andy Warhol. We will finish our Andy Warhol inspired art works at the beginning of next half term. Then I can take some photos of your wonderful work to put on our first Friday blog of the new half term.

  • You have been working hard with Mr. Collison and Mr. Holmes in PE and swimming respectively – Mr. Holmes has said what a good group you are and how you all swim at a good standard.

 

  • You have done many tests over the last few weeks and we are supporting all of you in your learning. Every one of you has made some progress and all this in 7 weeks – think what you can achieve by Christmas!!

Have a good rest over the next week – get lots of fresh air and sleep well. We will be even busier next half term!
