Good Morning Callisto, and welcome to Day 3 of Home Learning.
I will be giving everyone a call today or tomorrow just to find out how things are going and to see if I can help with any difficulties you may be having. Thank you to all the children who have sent 'Hello' messages using the daily register. Remember you can also use it to ask questions or tell me about things you are finding tricky and I will respond through our class page.
In class today we will be making rainbows to put in our windows at school and for the children to take home - why don't you join us and make a rainbow to put in a window at home. Read more about the meaning of the window rainbow by following the link - https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/51953553
"I don't really understand angles."
This response was added by a few children today - so well done to all of you who have persevered with your learning. This morning I added a Knowledge Organiser on the properties of shape and if you read this you may find it helps your understanding of angles.
Try a new workout with Joe Wicks from his you tube channel - just follow the link.
Look at the slides below. Draw an example in your Home Learning Journal so you can practice measuring the angles using your protractor. Repeat the task so you can see if you can find a pattern.
Today we are continuing with our narrative writing linked to 'Castle Midnight'. Today our focus is on writing a setting description so you will need to concentrate on what you can see in the picture - the sky, the water and the castle.
Try to include:
Remember to check out the Year 5 writing mat to support you with grammar, punctuation and vocabulary ideas.
Why not share your best example of figurative language on the register and we can create a magpie board for future writing!
Draw a picture of what you imagine the two main characters (Sky and Shawn) from 'Edge of Extinction' look like. Around each picture write at least 10 adjectives to describe them. If you are stuck for ideas use the word list below to help you - if you don't know what a word means remember to look it up.
Do they have any similar characteristics?
Topic - Art
The weather has been lovely for the last couple of days so take your journal into your garden and sketch a picture of what you can see from an interesting viewpoint. If you can not get outside or do not have a garden sketch the view from the window. Try to use some of the shading ideas you learnt in lessons with Mrs A.
