Good Morning one and all - I hope you had a lovely weekend and were able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine.  I have been busy in my garden this weekend planting flowers to make my garden look more colourful - What have you been doing?  Let me know on the class register or using our class email address - callisto@studleygreen.wilts.sch.uk

 

Remember to begin by signing in on today's register and use the comments section to ask any questions or send me a message. 

 

I have received lots of photos of home learning from different children and would really love to see more.  Just take a photo of what you have done and ask an adult to email it to me at the address above.  

 

We have a new TT Rockstars battle going - Callisto Boys vs Callisto Girls.  At the moment neither group have scored so hopefully today we will see the battle begin.

PE

 

Take 30 minutes to begin your day with a daily workout with Joe Wicks - do all the activities you can but if you need to take a rest remember to keep moving.

The homework challenge set on Friday was to create your own general knowledge quiz of 15 questions about the world - have a go and send it to me using the class email - remember to include an answer sheet.  Any questions I receive will be used as a daily challenge on our web page.

 

Here is my challenge question to you:

 

There are 5 oceans on earth - can you name all 5? 

 

 

Maths

 

Begin your session by playing 10 minutes of TT Rockstars.  If you are unable to access the site then use your times table book to practice your 7 times tables.

 

Today we will be doing lesson 6 in converting units of measure and will be continuing the focus on mass from Friday.

 

In our lesson we are converting masses measured in grams into masses measured in kg.  Take a look at the Let's Learn slides below to see how our friends have done this.  Then try the Guided Practice questions to apply what you have learnt.  Record your answers in your Home Learning Journal - don't forget to record your learning neatly using the long date, sub headings and a ruler to underline.

 

When you have finished that have a go at worksheet 6 on pages 109 and 110 in your workbook.  I will post the answer sheet at the bottom of the page later today.

Lesson 6 - Converting units of Mass

English

 

On Thursday we will be taking part in a nationwide writing task.  So during this week we will be consolidating some of our writing skills through a series of mini tasks.  Each task should take no more than 10 minutes. 

 

Today we will be revising sentences and fragments from term 1.  Remember a sentence is a complete thought and a fragment is incomplete and does not make sense on its own.

 

Here are some examples.

 

Sentence Fragment

I walked across the rickety bridge.

The rickety bridge

The castle loomed out of the shadows.

The shadowy castle

I swam across the moat.

Across the moat

I sprinted quickly.

Hurrying desperately

Suddenly, a loud noise echoed around the valley.

Suddenly, a loud noise

The bridge collapsed.

Because it was overloaded

In the middle of the night, the lights went off.

In the middle of the night

 

Activity One: turn fragments into sentences

 

Your first task is to turn the fragments below into sentences. Begin by reading the fragments to yourself - can you hear how they are not a complete thought?  Think about how you could turn the fragment into a sentence by adding words before or after the fragment.  Try saying the sentence in your head first and then write your sentence into your Home Learning Journal. The first one has been done for you to give you an idea of what you need to do.  You only need to write your sentences not the fragments.

 

Fragment Sentence

The beautiful dolphins

The beautiful dolphins swam past the submarine.

The glowing submarine

 

In the middle of the sea

 

The deep ocean

 

By the edge of the water

 

Across the trench

 

 

 

Activity Two: identify fragments and sentences

 

Read each group of words in the example column below.

  • If the words form a sentence, write rewrite it in your Home Learning Journal remembering to add a capital letter and full stop.
  • If the words form a fragment, change it into a complete sentence by adding additional words and write it in your Home Learning Journal.

 

The first two have been done for you.

Example

Rewrite as a sentence with correct punctuation

the tall tree

The tall tree swayed.

the tree swayed

The tree swayed.

the leaves are turning green

 

red, green and golden leaves

 

Birds live in the trees

 

Different types of birds

 

 

Activity Three: because, but, so

 

This is a recap from an activity we did last week and encourages you to think about different ways to structure your sentences.  Below you will see a simple sentence your task is to extend it in 3 different ways using the conjunctions because, but and so.  Record your extended sentences in your Home Learning Jorunal.

 

The girl cried out when she saw the bridge collapse. 

 

The girl cried out when she saw the bridge collapse because ...

 

The girl cried out when she saw the bridge collapse, but ...

 

The girl cried out when she saw the bridge collapse, so ...

 

 

Activity Four: rewrite a paragraph

 

Read the paragraph below can you explain why 2 parts have been underlined - think about what we have been doing in the previous?

 

A long time ago, I went on a journey. To an abandoned castle. I ventured down the spiral stairs into the main part of the castle. In this part of the castle, the rooms were much bigger. Colourful, decorated and full of chandeliers! I took a deep breath and walked in.

 

Your final task is to rewrite the paragraph in your Home Learning Journal so there are no fragments.
