If you are unsure how to save the Earth, I have posted an input for you to read that will help.

 

11. Open the art input. Read it. Complete the graffiti task for your star level.

1. Do something active. You could try yesterday’s PE with Joe (from Wednesday 3rd June) which was fun because he did moves from around the world.

Can anyone think of any other world PE moves that could be added to the workout? Send me a note if you can.

 

2. Try the morning challenge. It is about helping the planet.

 

3. Look at the spellings for Summer Week 6. Write each one out 3 times forward and once backwards, or write each one out once with the vowels in red and the consonants in green. Either task will help you learn your spellings.

 

4. For reading time, I have been very brave (as I don’t really like pictures of snakes) and have posted a reptile comprehension for you to try. It will help you with science and will help you practise your reading skills. If you want to watch Tuesday’s comprehension input again, scroll back to find the activity on Seesaw.

1. Do something active. I have posted a spell my name exercise activity to try- spell your first name by doing the exercises associated with the letters in your name. If you want to do your surname too, that is fine. If you don’t know how to do an exercise, look it up online.

 

2. For today’s morning challenge, find some 3d shapes in your house. Photograph them and send me a picture of them, telling me what type of 3d shape they are. You could send them as a pic collage or on the drawing tool on Seesaw.

 

3. Write out each of this week’s spellings three times. You may like to find the scrabble activity from last week and try writing how much this week’s spellings would be worth in scrabble. This will help you study the letters in our spellings.

 

4. Complete the comprehension activity for your star level. It is about chapter 21 of Goodnight Mr Tom. If you are not reading Goodnight Mr Tom, read a chapter of your own book and look up 5-10 unusual words from it in a dictionary. Write down what your words mean.

Hello everyone. How are you? Here is the plan for Tuesday:

 

1. Do something active. I am still doing the body coach workouts. Sometimes I do them live at 9 and sometimes I do them later in the day and just pick a random workout from his body coach tv channel on Youtube. I always feel better afterwards and sometimes he reads quiz questions so I learn new facts too.

 

2. Try the morning challenge. It is an emoji quiz about Liverpool place names. Look at the emojis and say what you see- some are places and some are landmarks. All are in and around Liverpool. Don’t worry if you don’t get them- some people are brilliant at picture quizzes and some people (like me) aren’t as great at them.

 

3. Write out each of this week’s spellings three times.

 

4. Complete the comprehension activity for your star level. It is a story about a haunted house.

 

5. Try the English starter activity. It is a sorting activity. Sort the verbs into past, present and future tense. If you need to, do some research about verb tenses online. If you would like an extra challenge, pick 1 past, 1 present and 1 future verb that you have sorted and send me a note telling me which type of past, present and future they belong to- are they simple? Perfect? Progressive?  

 

6. Open the English input and read about the features of suspense. Read chapter 20 of Goodnight Mr Tom and see if you can find any features of suspense in it. Answer the questions for your star level. They are about the same text that you studied in the comprehension activity.

 

7. Read the basic skills input about finding factors and common factors. Try the factors activity for your star level.

 

8. Read the information in the input about solving 2d shape problems. Try the problems for your star level.

 

*Please be aware that “number of angles” means how many angles there are inside a shape. “Total value of the angles” means how many degrees the angles inside a shape add up to in total. For example, a square has 4 as its number of angles and 360 degrees as the total value of the angles.

 

9. Do something creative. I have posted an activity about designing your own board game. It may take more than one day so you may like to start it and continue it at the weekend if you fancy making one.

 

10. Try the Science starter task. It asks you to use a classification key to classify some aliens.

 

11. Read the science input about drawing classification keys. Try the activity for your star level. You may like to go out and hunt for some organisms to use in your key, or you may make your key about the organisms you have seen around your home over the last couple of months.

 

12. Spend some time outdoors. Remember that you can look for some plants and try to identify what they are. We will be studying plants in Science later in the week.

Hello everyone. How are you? Did you have a fabulous weekend? Here is the plan for today. We would have been doing mock SATs test this week so today I have set you a few SATs style exercises. They will help you to prepare for Year 7.

 

1. Do something active. The website below contains a few exercises that you can try to exercise all of your body. Scroll down to the slides. Click through the slides and try the exercises.

 

https://www.activekids.com/fitness/articles/full-body-conditioning-exercises-for-kids

 

2. Try the morning challenge. It is a painting that contains objects or people from different films. Which films can you spot? Send me a list.

 

3. Look at the spellings for week 3. Check you understand what the words mean. Use each word in a sentence. Send me a picture of your sentences.

 

4. Try the word of the week activity in Seesaw just like last week. Again, pick an unusual word that you would like to get to know more about.

 

5. Today for English, you have a GPS quiz to complete. Try each question and look up any topics that you don’t know anything about as you do. If you are a one star pupil, you may like to focus on just doing round 1. Everyone else, try to do round 1 and 2. This amount of questions would be roughly the same as how many you would have answered in your SATs GPS test.

 

6. For reading, there is a SATs style comprehension to try. If you are a one star child, read the instructions carefully as they tell you which questions to do.

 

7. Try the arithmetic paper for basic skills.

 

8. Read the information in the input about sorting shapes. Try your sorting shapes activity.  If you didn’t have the chance to do Thursday’s 2d shape activities, you should do those before you attempt today’s work. If you can’t remember a fact about a shape or what a word means, look it up online or in Thursday’s input.

 

9. Do something creative. I have posted an activity about designing your own musical instrument. You could also try Saturday’s rainbow experiment.

 

10. Read the Sikh creation story and answer the questions for your star level. Read the Hindu creation story and answer the questions for your star level. You may need to research some of the answers for yourself.

Thursday 30th April

Hello everyone. Can you believe it is the last day of April? Here is the plan for the day:

 

1. Do something active. There are 10 yoga positions on Seesaw that you could try. If you do you can send me a picture of your favourite position. If you know some other positions, send me a picture of you doing them and I can forward it to the class for them to try.

 

2. Look at the spellings for Summer 1 Week 2. Look at each spelling, cover it, write it and see if you are correct. If you get one wrong, write it out 3 times.

 

3. Read Goodnight Mr Tom chapters 18 and answer the comprehension questions for your star level. If you are not currently reading Goodnight Mr Tom, read a chapter of your book write yourself 10 comprehension questions to answer about the chapter you read.

 

4. Open the English input. Try the alphabet starter. Read Goodnight Mr Tom chapter 19. After you finish reading, write down some words to describe Little Weirwold and Salmouth. There is a picture of Salmouth in the input which may help you. Read the information about setting descriptions in the English input. Complete your English task. If you are not reading Goodnight Mr Tom, you can pretend that you have been away somewhere on holiday and can write home to someone describing the place you are on holiday in and comparing it to Liverpool. You can still use the same star level activities as are on Seesaw.

 

5. For basic skills today, do the next 10 minute cgp maths test from your homework book. If you have lost yours, I have posted a random test to Seesaw. Send me a photograph of what you do.

 

6. Read the information in the maths input about 2d shapes. You may wish to do some research online about the properties of 2d shapes too. Complete your task about 2d shapes.

 

7. Read the information in the science input. It is about using classification keys. Write answers down to the questions in the input. Try the task for your star level.

 

8. Do something creative. I have posted a pop art challenge for you to try if you want to. Post me what you do whether you try it or do your own thing.

 

9. Spend some time outdoors.

Hello everyone. How are you? Here is the plan for today.

 

1. Do something active.

 

2. Write each of your spellings out three times forwards. Try to write each one once backwards.

 

3. Complete the comprehension I have posted. Find your star level. It is about the lyrics in the song “This is me” You may like to listen to the song a few times on Youtube before you try the questions.

 

4. Try the English starter activity. It is called “types of sentences”. You may like to do some research about the types of sentences before you try it. They are statement, question, command and exclamation.

 

5. Read chapter 17 of Goodnight Mr Tom. Write two lists- one of the ways Tom behaves nicely and one of the ways Tom does not behave nicely in this chapter. Read the information about balanced arguments in the input activity on Seesaw, or from the school website. Look at your challenge for English- it is to write a balanced argument that discusses whether Tom Oakley is a nice person or not. If you are not studying Goodnight Mr Tom at the moment, pick a character in a book who you know well who behaves in a nice and not so nice way. For example, you could pick Snape from the Harry Potter books. Write a balanced argument about them instead of about Tom Oakley- you can still click on the English activity for your star level.

 

6.  Read today’s basic skills input. It is about multiplying and dividing numbers (particularly decimals) by 10, 100 and 1,000. Do your basic skills sheet.

 

7. Read the input for today’s main maths session. It is a reminder of some facts about measurement. Try the measurement test. It is the same for all star levels. When we do these end of unit tests in class, we often help one another therefore you can look online for support with whatever you need. You could also text one of your classmates for some advice or you can ask me too; I just may not be able to reply straight away.

 

8. Do something creative. Today I have posted a second toilet roll challenge.

 

9. Open the Geography input about wood and read through it. Complete the task for your star level.

 

10. Spend some time outdoors. At some point in the next week we will be thinking about how we can classify (group) different types of plants so if you go for a walk, look out for some plants and see how many you can name. See if you can spot how the different plants you see may be able to be grouped together.

Hello everyone. How are you? Here is the plan for today.

 

1. Do something active.

 

2. Write each of your spellings out five times. Alternatively, I have posted a scrabble activity to Seesaw that you can use to practise your spellings. Write the spelling in the first box, then work out what value the word has by writing down the points you would get for each letter of the word. This will help you to consider the letters that are in each of this week’s spellings.

 

3. Look for the spelling correction activity on Seesaw for your star level and do it as today’s English starter.

 

4. Read chapters 15 and 16 of Goodnight Mr Tom. Answer the comprehension questions that I have posted about them. If you are not reading Goodnight Mr Tom at the moment, I have posted a comprehension about jazz music that you can try instead.

 

5. For your main English task today you will be summarising events. There is an activity for you to do where you can summarise the main events of the chapters you read in reading time. Look for your star level and follow the instructions. You may like to start by writing down the 9 main events that you think happened in chapters 15 and 16. If you are not reading Goodnight Mr Tom at the moment, read 1-2 chapters of your own book and complete the activity for your star level for the main events that happened in those chapters of your book. Again, you may wish to start by writing down the 9 main events that happened in your chapters.

 

6. Read the input about today’s basic skills which is reading scales. Complete your basic skills activity for your star level.

 

7. Read the input about solving volume problems. Try the volume problems for your chosen star level.

 

8. Do something creative. Today I am recommending that you write and perform (if you want to) a rap about Booker. Look for the activity on Seesaw for some advice about this.

 

9. Find the history task for your star level. Read the information about The Battle of Britain and do some of your own research about it. Do your task on Seesaw.

 

10. Spend some time outdoors.

 

Remember to send me whatever you do for English and Maths. Remember that you can also send me some pictures or messages to update me on what fun you have at playtime.

Hello everyone. How was your weekend? Did anyone try the time capsule task? Send me a picture if you did. Here is the plan for day one of the week. Read all of my instructions carefully today and don’t forget that I am working at Sudley so if you don’t hear from me it’s not because I have forgotten you or because I don’t care- I will look forward to reading what you have done when I get home tonight. Try to:

 

1. Do something active. You could try a ballet lesson by following the link below:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-la16FUwvao

 

2. Look at the spellings for Summer 1 Week 2. Remember that I posted them to activities if you have lost your sheet. Check you know what the words mean and use each one in a sentence.

 

3. Do the word of the week activity on Seesaw. Pick a word that you are unfamiliar with and do the activities for your chosen word. I have given you an example to look at. You could pick an unusual word that you have read in a book or an unusual word from the dictionary.

 

4. Read the English input about spelling and try the activities in it on a piece of paper. Find and complete the spelling activity for your star level. There is also a board game that you can play with someone else if you want to. Read the instructions carefully. The board to play on is in the activity on Seesaw and there is a bank of spellings that you could use in the game.

 

5. Complete the comprehension I have posted to Seesaw. It is about mammals. Find your star level.

 

6. Complete the arithmetic test on Seesaw for basic skills. Like last week, if you struggle with a question, look up how to do it online. You can ask me but don’t forget that I may not be able to reply straight away.

 

7. Read the information about volume in the maths input activity or from the website. This will help you revise written multiplication methods and understand how to calculate volumes. Try the volume questions for your star level. You must do the working out yourself; please do not use a calculator. There are some extension questions for all star levels to try- they are past test questions about volume.

 

8. Do something creative. I have posted some examples of rainbow art to inspire you to create a beautiful rainbow for your window, wall or fridge.

 

9. Today’s afternoon lesson is RE. It is about creation stories. Read the Judeo-Christian creation story. It is what Jews and Christians believe happened at the creation of the world. Then read the Islamic creation story. It is what Muslims believe happened at the creation of the world. You may also wish to do some research about the two creation stories. Do the task for your star level.

 

10. Spend some time outdoors.

Hello everyone. How are you? Here is the plan for today.

 

1. Do something active. You could try this street dance tutorial:

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/physical-education-ks1-ks2-street-dance-masterclass-on-b-boying-and-footwork/zkmf47h

 

2. Ask someone to test you on your spellings. Let me know what score you get. If you got any wrong, write them out five times.

If you fancy an extra challenge, get someone at home to test you on all the spellings you have learnt since we started lockdown.

 

3. Open the English input about types of clauses. Look up the different types of clauses online. Read the example questions in the powerpoint and look at their answers. Do your English tasks about types of clauses. Try the review SATs questions that can be found as an activity on Seesaw.

 

4. Complete the video comprehension I have posted. Find your star level. Watch the music video for the song Good to Me by Chris Malinchak. You can find it on Youtube or by following the link below:

 

https://www.literacyshed.com/the-music-video-shed.html

 

Then answer your comprehension questions about the video.

 

5. Read the information about converting between fractions and decimals from the basic skills input. Try your basic skills task.

 

6. Read the information about answering area and perimeter test questions from the maths input. Try the area and perimeter test questions for your star level. As an extension, try making some reasoning test area and perimeter questions of your own.

 

7. Do something creative. Today I have set an edible art challenge. Look at the examples in the activity on Seesaw and make me a piece of edible art. If you wash your hands before you start, the food you use won’t go to waste and can still be eaten. If you haven’t got any food in to do the edible art with, make a landscape drawing from pictures of food- you could have trees that are broccoli and a sun that is an orange.

 

8. Read the information in the geography input. It is about how natural resources are used to generate electricity. Read carefully and make some notes that will then help you with your task. Do your task. Find the tasks on the website or on Seesaw.

Thursday 23rd April

Hello everyone. How are you? Here is the plan for today.

 

1. Do something active. Tuesday’s Joe Wicks was really fun. He had a list of difficult exercises and easy exercises and tossed a coin to see which one to do. The difficult exercises came up quite a few times so it was a really good challenge. Try it. Find it on youtube on the body coach tv channel.

 

2. Write out each of this week’s spellings three times forwards and once backwards. If you want to do something different, do what I sometimes do to learn tricky spellings: get some old magazines or newspapers and cut out the letters that are needed to spell each word. You could stick them to paper or put them on your floor.

 

3. Read chapter 13 and 14 of Goodnight Mr Tom. Write a list of questions that you would like to ask the author about these chapters or about the book in general. Send me your list of questions. If you are not reading Goodnight Mr Tom at the moment, read two chapters of your own book and write some questions that you would like to ask the author about those chapters and the book in general.

 

4. Complete the 6M DIY gps quiz on Seesaw- this contains ten rounds of questions written by some of our class. If your questions aren’t in there, I will put them in the next GPS quiz I do. Send me your answers.

 

5. Open the English input and try the starter adjective activity. Read through the slides. In the book, we don’t get to hear a lot of detail about the play that Willie takes part in. Add an extra chapter to the book about the night of the play, pretending that Willie is one of the actors in the play. Describe how he feels before, during and after the performance. There are some different features for each star level to include- look for the activity on Seesaw for your star level to find out what I am asking you to include.

 

6. Do one of your CGP reading homeworks. If you have finished all of them, do one of the reading tasks from the SATs prep folder on our class webpage.

 

7. Practise your times tables. If you can’t access times tables rockstars, use the resources on Seesaw. It doesn’t matter if you use the same every day- repeated practise is really good for times tables.

 

8. Read the basic skills information about finding fractions of amounts. Complete your basic skills sheet.

 

9. Read the input about solving area and perimeter problems. Try the area and perimeter problems for your star level.

 

10. Do something creative. Today I am recommending that you design a logo for your first initial.

 

11. Read the information about habitats in the science input powerpoint. Read what your task is and go outside when you have an adult’s permission to complete your science task. Read the warning- don’t pick things up as some insects sting and some animals bite.

 

12. Spend some time outdoors.

 

Remember to send me whatever you do for English and Maths. Remember that you can also send me some pictures or messages to update me on what fun you have at playtime.

Hello everyone. How are you? Here is the plan for today.

 

1. Do something active. You could try the 5k challenge.

 

2. Write out each of this week’s spellings three times forwards and once backwards.

 

3. Read chapters 11 and 12 of GMT. Write some comprehension questions about these chapters and write your own answers.

 

4. Do one of your GPS homework tests.

 

5. Generate 10 GPS test questions of your own and post them to me on Seesaw. I want to put these together in a test for the whole class.

 

6. In the book, Willie is learning to read with the help of Tom. Sometimes Tom reads him stories. I want you to read a story to someone in your house. If you can, read it from memory without having a prompt in front of you. I would pick the story of the three little pigs as I know it off by heart. This task may help you appreciate how Willie feels about reading aloud. Imagine how he feels being unable to read at his age and how frightening it is for him to start. You can send me a summary of how he may have felt reading aloud and can also send me a video of you reading your story.

 

7. In the book, Willie’s friends are performing in a play. If you have someone willing to support you at home, put on a play that you can perform to your family or can film and send to me. It can be a short story that you know well and could be the same story you told to someone in the previous task. If you don’t have anyone who can perform with you, write a script for your play and send it to me. This task will help you understand how the children may have felt about performing in a play. 

 

8. Pick the times table you know the least. Count in steps of this number up and down five times. Get someone to test you with random times table tennis questions. If you are super confident, try to learn the 14, 16 or 18 times table. You can use the 7, 8 and 9 times table to help you with these.

 

9. Do one of your 10 minute maths CGP tests for basic skills today. If you can’t answer a question, look up how to do it. If the questions don’t take you long, make up your own 10 minute test based on topics we have covered this year and try answering your questions.

 

10. Read the information about finding the area of compound shape. Complete your area task sheet. Compound shapes can be tricky to visualise and understand. If you struggle to find missing lengths or areas, watch some online tutorials. You could try these:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=13&v=FGILTRNf4OU&feature=emb_title

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VU5jZTlTsi0

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8&v=dvPMGjtlrqE&feature=emb_logo

 

11. Do something creative. In our current class book, Willie helps design the sets for a play. Pick a film that you love and imagine it is being turned into a play on a stage. Design a backdrop for your film that could go behind the actors on stage. You could design a picture of space to go in Toy Story or Guardians of the Galaxy. You could design a picture of Hogwarts to go behind the characters in a Harry Potter play.

 

12. Read the information about the different musical genres of the 20th century. Listen to some music from the different genres and pick a genre that interests you. Research some more facts about this genre and present them to me in any way you chose- a poster, a report, an iMovie, a powerpoint etc.

 

13. Spend some time outdoors.

2. Look at the spellings for Summer 1 Week 1. Write each word out 3 times. You could have your consonants in one colour and your vowels in a different colour.

 

3. Open the English powerpoint. Try the punctuation starter on some paper. Read the rest of the slides. Do your punctuation editing task. If you can’t remember how to use a punctuation mark, look it up online.

 

4. Read chapter 10 of GMT and answer the comprehension questions that are on the website or are on Seesaw.

 

5. Practise your times tables by going on times tables rockstars or on my times tables activities on Seesaw- scroll through to find them.

7. Read the information about the area of squares, rectangles, triangles and parallelograms in the maths input resource. Do your area sheet. Try the extension problems.

 

8. Do something creative. Today I am recommending that you pick your favourite upbeat song, listen to it on youtube and create a dance routine to go with it. Send a video of you doing your routine to me or to your friends who can then try your routine. This will help us all keep fit!

 

9. Open the PSHE input. Today we are thinking about money and budgeting. Read the information and complete each task on paper. You will need access to the internet.

 

10. Spend some time outdoors.

Hello everyone. How are you? Did you have a nice Easter? Welcome to the Summer term.

Below is what I want you to do today. Remember that you can find the input for each lesson and the worksheets on Seesaw or on our school webpage. If you want to, you can look our lesson topics up online and can watch some videos or read some websites. Remember that you can pick which star level you want to do. Also, you are just doing whatever you can- some people manage to do lots and some people just do a few things- anything is fine!!!

 

1. Do something active. I have continued to do Joe Wicks each day and (apart from a few aches and pains in my much older body) I am feeling really great for it. Even the burpees are getting easier! You don’t have to do his workouts live- you can find them any time on his Youtube Body Coach TV  channel:

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

If anyone fancies filming their own exercise video with some moves for us to all try, send it to me and I can forward it to the class.

 

2. Look at the spellings for Summer 1 Week 1. Look up any words you don’t know the meaning of. Write a sentence using each word.

 

3. Open the English powerpoint. Try the starter activity. Read chapter 9. Generate some words and phrases to describe the experience of being thrown a surprise birthday party. Complete your chapter 9 English task. It relates to birthdays.

 

4. Complete the comprehension activity on Seesaw. It is about a character called Mrs Pratchett.

 

5. Try the arithmetic paper for basic skills. If you can’t remember how to do one of the questions, look it up online.

 

6. Read the information about perimeter. Complete your perimeter questions. Try the extension questions which are from previous SATs tests.

 

7. Do something creative. I have seen some amazing portraits completed on empty toilet rolls or kitchen rolls using just ink from a pen. Toilet rolls are the perfect size to get the scale of a portrait correct. Look at the examples I have posted to Seesaw and have a go. You could research famous portraits and try to recreate one of them. You could draw a member of your family or a famous celebrity. You could draw your favourite film character.

 

8. Read the information about invertebrates. Try the invertebrates task sheet for your star level.

 

9. Spend some time outdoors. I recommend that today you go and try to find some invertebrates. If you find one, look up what it is online or in a book. Send me some pictures if you manage to see any.

 

Remember to send me whatever you do for English and Maths and for other subjects too if you want. Remember that you can also send me some pictures or messages to update me on what fun you have at playtime or to tell me what you did over Easter.

7. Look up some videos online about how to add fractions with different denominators. Do your basic skills.

 

8. Read the Easter pick and mix input. Try the Easter pick and mix maths questions. If you have a snack at home, you could treat yourself to a bite after each question like we do with our sweets in class. If you can’t do a question, look up the topic online and watch some videos about how to do it.

 

9. As an extension for Maths, create some of your own Easter themed reasoning test questions and write their answer.

 

10. Do something creative. I have included an activity where you can design your own Easter egg. If you would prefer to do it on paper, that is fine. Research some designs online before you begin.

 

11. Read the RE information about the Easter story. It is what Christians believe happened at Easter. Complete the story board task for the Easter story. Try the extension-rewriting the Easter story in your own words using Year 6 ticklist features. If you don’t do this today, it might be something you could try over the Easter holidays.

 

12. Spend some time outdoors. I recommend you decorate a set of eggs and hide them in the garden (or in the house if you don’t have access to a garden) Your family can then do an egg hunt.

Complete one of the three different evacuation tasks from Seesaw or from the school website.

 

5. Go on times tables rockstars or hit the button.

Find out about the measures of weight, capacity and length and how we convert between them. I want you to teach me about what you find out- will you post me an explanation video? Will you send me a poster?

 

8. Do something creative. When I was in Sudley yesterday, we made fortune tellers. I will post instructions for them to Seesaw. You could do one of these and decorate it in creative time. If you don’t have coloured paper, could you colour in some paper of your own?

Play times are over to you- will you challenge someone at home to put on as many pairs of socks as they can in 30 seconds? Will you face time someone from school and share play together?
