Tuesday 2nd June

Good Morning Key Stage 2!

As always - please remember to just manage what you can and take things at your own pace. There is no expectation that you need to complete absolutely everything, everyday.

I hope you enjoyed baking with Mrs Sephton yesterday, and I hope you shared your delicious creations with your family members. I would still love to see all of your hard work so don't forget to email your work across to your teachers and they will forward this on to me. I'll aim to upload some of your work examples to the virtual gallery.

English - Writing

Today we are thinking about plot point 1.

You might have noticed that on the 'Secret Passage' picture that you studied yesterday, there was a grandfather clock with three faces, each reading a different time. This will form the beginning of your story.

Please take a look at the writing progression document attached. This shows you what the end of year expectations are for your child's year group. When they are writing, please bear these in mind.

Use ambitious vocabulary to describe 'sounds' of the clock and of time.

Use adverbs and adverbial phrases to describe the time.

Year 5/6 Challenge - personify the clock.

English - Reading

Today I would like you to think about developing your prediction skills. Look carefully at the picture then answer the following questions in as much detail as possible.

  • What is happening?
  • Why is the woman in red holding two suitcases?
  • Why is the woman in black making a bubble over the woman in red?
  • What might happen when the bubble is completely formed?
  • Is there someone inside the smaller bubble?

Maths

Our maths lessons will be split in two this term. If you are in Years 3 or 4 you need to look for the heading LKS2, if you are in Years 5 or 6 you need to look for the heading UKS2.

UKS2 - Your unit of learning for the next few weeks is 'angles'.

To get your brain warmed up, see if you can answer the following questions:

  • what angle is the ramp at? Use a protractor.
  • Amal measure the angle at 150'. Explain his mistake.

Year 5 today you will be measuring angles with a protractor. Have a look a the 'how to use a protractor' information sheet before you start your maths work. This should act as a handy guide to help you out.
