Mrs Marshall


I have been teaching at Greyfriars since 2004 and am very proud of being part of the Greyfriars team. Also I am one of the school’s Assistant Head Teachers. I currently teach year 6’s and I am in charge of literacy throughout the school. In Winterton class we try to make the most of every learning opportunity and strive to do our best. Outside of school I enjoy reading, going to the cinema and spending time with my family!

 

Welcome Winterton to the second half of year 6!

Posted on Monday, February 22nd, 2021

 

Hello everyone

Welcome back to school and I hope you all had a relaxing break, or that you caught up on missing literacy and numeracy.

This half term will see changes to your remote learning. We will have registration and live lessons every day on Teams via the General channel in our class team. You should have received a notification for our first meeting on Tuesday 23rd at 9.30 am. This will be a meeting to say hello to every one and talk about what will be happening the rest of the week.  Also this will be the last blog you will access via our website. From next week all your work will be in our class team. Try logging into Teams using your Microsoft 365 account to see what it looks like.

You will be expected to log in to all our meetings and live lessons every day from Tuesday. I will schedule them after our meeting on Tuesday, so you will receive notifications of these as I do that. Remember if you have a problem with devices or broadband connections, contact the school office and they will see if they can help.

OK now here is this week’s work:

Congratulations Winterton!

Posted on Friday, February 12th, 2021

Congratulations Winterton for all the great learning many of you have done this half term! We are now half way through your final year at Greyfriars. Thank you to all of you that have been in school. You have worked really well, behaved sensibly and haven’t moaned about having to be here at all!!

If you are behind with your learning, now is the time to catch up. Next week is half term so there will be no blog until the week beginning Monday 22nd February, leaving you the whole week free to catch up on whatever you need to. If you haven’t been sending me your literacy and numeracy work every day, go back to each week’s Monday blog and see what you need to do.

It is important you do not miss chunks of your learning as you will need the knowledge for High School in about 28 weeks!

Back to this week.

Here are some photos of our fun in the snow!

Firstly, we have our snowman that Winterton Lockdown bubble made and some photos of us outdoors; then we have a photo of Isla and Colin (who is being very responsible and wearing a mask!)

I hope you have managed to have some fun in the snow.

After the half term holiday we will be doing some live lessons. We will begin with a register each day, then move onto our numeracy lesson, then our literacy lesson. You will be expected to attend each lesson! Watch out for the blog on Monday 22nd February for the times these lessons will happen and for more details. I will send you an invite through Teams and the invitation will pop up on your screen. I am really looking forward to seeing you all again! Tell your parents to look out for a message from school giving them more details.

 

Here is a short video saying exactly what I would say if I could!

Have a lovely break ready to start our live lessons next half term.

Mrs. M

Welcome Winterton to week beginning 8th February

Posted on Monday, February 8th, 2021

Welcome to the second 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. 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.

Just a reminder to complete your Education City work if you can, as it follows the work we are doing in literacy and maths. Also I am pleased to see many people are working on Tackling Tables and really improving their accuracy and speed.

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’.

I have included the presentation we will be using in class this week. You can use this to see the whole week of literacy work in one week if you would rather.

Today we are going to read as a reader. You will need to complete a Tell Me Square. (Divide your page into 4 equal rectangles. In the top left rectangle write ‘Likes’; in the top right rectangle write ‘Dislikes’; bottom left write ‘Links’ – have you read or heard any other balanced arguments? If so what?; and finally bottom right rectangle ‘Questions’ – what would you like to ask the writer of this text about his writing (not about Daleks!)

When you have finished this, move onto your next piece of work which is to write out the points in 2 lists: 1 list of the points for letting Daleks live on Earth, and the other list against letting them live here. These points are to come from the text – not your opinions.

Spelling:

Scarlet spelling group:

interrupt, interfere, intercept, interject, intertwine, interim, internal, intersperse, interloper, interest

Here is your handwriting/spelling: Cursive Handwriting Practice Sheet

Here is a word search for you to practise your spellings Red group wordsearch 08.02.21

(These are key words you need to know how to read AND spell.) Write them out for handwriting, put them into sentences for spelling and test yourself every day.

Topic:

Our key question this week is: How are British animals affected by global warming?In this lesson, you will find the answer to this question and will create poster There will be a focus on key vocabulary too. 

There is one lesson presentation with tasks included on it. There are videos to watch and a fact sheet you will need (see link below).

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 another song of your own and create signed movements of your own to effectively convey the message of the song. If you did one last week, that is very good experience that you can put into use today – getting better at it!

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

 

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.

Sort them into those that signal: 

  • Introducing a point 
  • Adding on more information 
  • Introducing a different point of view 
  • The conclusion 

Imitate sentence patterns using examples from the text such as … 

  • Since the arrival of the Daleks on this planet, there has been much discussion about whether or not they should be allowed to live on earth
  • Since the arrival of the new players to the team, there has been much discussion about whether or not the transfer fee was money well spent
  • Since the introduction of healthy eating to the school, there has been much discussion about whether or not it is a good idea etc

In this lesson, we will be finishing our Philosophy unit by reflecting upon what you have learned over the weeks and doing some art work to express our thoughts.

RE Lesson Week 6

 

Art: 

Who was Piet Mondrian? 

Mondrian was keen to create the effect of balance and harmony in the way he painted. Rather than looking like nature, his paintings explored how colour and line worked together. He changed the thickness of his horizontal and vertical lines and placed them closer together or further apart. For explanation and examples follow the Power-point and then design your own piece of Mondrian inspired art  Art Powerpoint

POP task Use Mondrian’s design as inspiration and change the location of colours and lines for different effects. Experiment with the thickness and location of the lines in your own abstract design in the style of Mondrian.

Should we work a four-day week?

Should we look after our environment?

These are just a few ideas…

Work hard, learn lots!

 

A Friday well done to Winterton!

Posted on Friday, February 5th, 2021

Hello again everyone.

We really have done well this week with lot of work coming in and I can really see the progress some of you are making with your numeracy, literacy and spellings.

This week I would like to praise Brodie in particular. Every week she sends in all her work for the week. It is neat and organised and of a good quality. There are other children who even though they don’t manage to send in every piece of work, they do always send in at least their literacy and numeracy every day. Well done to Isla, Grace, Joanna, Nikola, Theo, Arminas, and Klevi for this.  Everyone in the class who has access to the internet is sending in something every week – WELL DONE TO YOU ALL!

Here is Brodie’s work for this week so you see how hard she is working every week.

Maths

Literacy

Spellings and reading comprehensions

 

Science, topic, art and RE

 

Education City and homework grid 

Brodie has also improved her Tackling Tables score this week; she has done 2 lots of PE; learnt the Ed Sheeran song and done her touch typing which she is enjoying (so am I!)

So much work Brodie!

Also I was sent in a really detailed diagram of the heart by Isla for her science this week

I mustn’t go without saying well done to Noah, Joanna, Sophie, Erin, Enija, Evelyn, Amanda, Emilijus, Madalin, Lillymay, Gracie, Azuolas and Stephanie who are in school learning and also doing very well.

Look out for next week’s work in Monday’s blog and have a lovely weekend

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.

_____________________ 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.

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.

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:

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?

Hello again!

I forgot to include some of Brodie’s wonderful topic work and homework and I couldn’t not show you all; so here it is:

Well done Winterton! Friday 29th Jan. 2021

Posted on Friday, January 29th, 2021

Well done Winterton. I have received work from virtually everyone this week!

You are getting good at this and seem to have a good routine in that you are doing your work every day and remembering to send it in to me. I enjoy speaking to you on the phone and having the opportunity to check that you are okay. If you do have a problem, let me know when I ring, or if it is urgent email me and I will usually answer you the same day.

We hope to be able to have live lessons very soon when you have been notified of your Microsoft 365 account. When this arrives you will be able to log in to watch literacy and numeracy lessons with me every day. We will even have a register every morning so I can see who is online ready for the lessons – such fun! This will make your learning easier as I will be here to answer any questions you have and guide you through the activities. Watch this space for more news soon!!

Here is just a tiny selection of the work we have been doing this week:

As I said, this is only a small selection of the work I have had in. Well done again to Joanna, Theo and Brodie who have each sent in all 24 pieces of work for this week. To Brodie and Grace who have done all the Education City work and again to Brodie who has made fantastic progress in Tackling Tables this week.

Well done to all of you that have engaged with your learning this week.

Have a relaxing weekend

R.E.

In R.E. this week we will continue to explore what Augustine of Hippo said. The work below is the same as last week’s. If you did not do it, or finish it, please do so this week.

Augustine lived in Roman Africa where people went in search of happiness. Very similar to modern day in Britain. Augustine believed in original sin.

What did he mean by that?

One day there will be a city of God established.

What did Augustine say our attitude should be towards this life? (momentary sufferings compared with what awaits us when we die.)

Look at this Week 3 St Augustine as an introduction to St Augustine of Hippo.

Watch video on St Augustine as an example of a Christian philosopher and discuss.

Can you explain why your own answers to ultimate questions may differ from those of others?

Can you explain your own values and remain respectful of those with different values?

Art: Colour theory

Colour theory is extremely important to fashion designers. Pairing the right colours for the right occasion and skin tone is seen as essential. Although experimentation is always encouraged, there are certain optimal combinations of complementary colours that are widely used such as grey/crimson, yellow/green, pink/white and tan/ maroon, for example.

Try out colour combinations in your art books/on paper.

Try these on own clothing designs (worksheet link here) Design and outfit worksheet

POP tasks – choose as many tasks as you want from those listed below. They get progressively harder, increasing the level of challenge as you go.

Why is colour theory important for fashion designers to consider?

List some examples of complementary colours that are considered to be good combinations for fashion.

Copy the use of the suggested optimal complementary colour combinations in your own sketches for clothing designs.

Suggest reasons why experimentation with colour choices might be a good thing in fashion and why designers might choose not to experiment with colour.

Look at this statement: The colours used by Pop artists like Andy Warhol are not suitable for fashion designers to consider when creating their clothing collections. Is that always true, sometimes true or never true?

Well done Winterton Friday blog 22nd Jan 2021

Posted on Friday, January 22nd, 2021

Well done to everyone that has sent their work in this week:

Theo, Evelyn, Leon, Kimberley, Amber,  Grace, Isla, Evie, Klevi, Brodie, Emilijus, Kenzie, Arminas, Joanna and Nikola. Some of these people (Theo, Joanna, Brodie and Evelyn) have sent every single piece for every day! Some of you have sent in a lot of work, if not every piece. Don’t worry if you can’t send in every piece as I know some of you cannot download your work very well, some people have had problems sending it to me; and some of you simply can’t get it all done – I do realise there is a lot to do every day!

I do ask that everyone send in at least their maths and literacy every day. I will be chasing people who are not doing this.

Here are some images that Theo has sent in of him carrying out some exciting experiments:

Here is a weather mobile that Evelyn made at home:

It is hanging in the entrance to the classroom.

Lots of people have sent in images of their reading comprehensions this week. Here are some of them:

I have also has Power Maths in this week:

Here is a variety of all the work that has been sent in this week:

 

Here is Brodie’s obstacle course for PE this week:

If you send me work that you would like to appear in the blog next Friday, then let me know when you send it in and I will see how many I can include!

Thank you to everyone who reads the blog and makes their best efforts to do their work. If you do not keep up, you will then fall behind and not be in the right place in your learning when we all return to class. Also High School is very close – we’ve had nearly half your final year at Greyfriars – and you need to have been learning.

I will be calling you all again next week, so listen out for the phone to ring!

Have a good weekend
