Endeavour Class

Term 6 Week 7 (Home Learning Wk14)

July 12, 2020

Dear Endeavour Class,

This week we are finding out about Beatrix Potter, another Victorian author and artist whose work is enjoyed by us today.  As with William Morris, she had a passion for nature and went further to protect the countryside.  Beatrix Potter will allow us to enjoy looking at nature and the farming world and see how life in the countryside changed during Victorian times.   There is so much opportunity to produce artwork, so I am looking forward to what the children create as they look at animals, whether they take on the characteristics of people or whether they remain true to real life and to read their stories of life in the countryside.

Please find the daily plan document as last week.  Any maths worksheets will have been emailed to you.  Also, please let me know if there is any difficulty accessing any documents.

In maths, Year 5 are investigating units of measure including time.   Year 6 are focussed on nets of 3D shapes, circles, pie charts and averages.

There are spellings available for Year 5 on the above button for the remainder of this term.  Please use the lists how you wish to, remembering that you don't have to do all of them but if your child would like to have the challenge, then please do them all!  Year 6 have the regular spelling tests on SATs Boot Camp to complete and improve their scores.

Both children in and out of school will follow the same plans so that they gain similar learning experiences.

Please continue to send in your work as I look forward to seeing what you have been doing!

I am continuing to include the links below for your reference as they are still valid and are encouraged to be used.

Term 6 Week 6 (Home learning Wk13)

July 05, 2020

Dear Endeavour Class,

Over the past few weeks we have learnt about many aspects of Victorians, their engineering, their inventions, their enthusiam for progress and their zeal to want to keep and maintain their ideals and values for the future.  They wanted to build, manufacture and design for everything to last.  The Victorians also wanted you to enjoy their buildings and that is why so many Victorian structures were decorative and ornate - so you could admire and see the thought and the detailed planning and the glory of the finished product.   For instance,  Paddington Railway Station or St.Pancras Station in London show how the Victorians celebrated their style.  This week we are studying about a Victorian design artist, who with his passion for nature and his creativity, designed wallpapers and textiles that we still use today!   HIs desire was that all homes should be beautiful, not only for the wealthy but for the working class too!  So many of his designs have been used inside homes since then - you may have something of his work in your house at this moment with a Morris design - the fabric being used for all sort of things in the home and the design used even for ordinary things such as coasters and notebook covers.   Enjoy creating your own!

Please find the daily plan document as last week.  Any maths worksheets will have been emailed to you.  Also, please let me know if there is any difficulty accessing any documents.

In maths, Year 5 are investigating 3D shapes.   Year 6 are focussed on number work and mental calculations and problems.

In English this week, we are asking you to look back at the SPAG we've already covered and go over anything you find difficult to remember. We learn a lot of difficult ideas which easily become muddled, but the ability to discuss your writing with the right vocabulary is as important in English as it is in maths. 

Our writing this week is linked to William Morris and nature. Write a poem or story using his ideas and love of nature to inspire you and then present it beautifully, illustrated with designs in his style.

There are spellings available for Year 5 on the above button for the remainder of this term.  Please use the lists how you wish to, remembering that you don't have to do all of them but if your child would like to have the challenge, then please do them all!  Year 6 have the regular spelling tests on SATs Boot Camp to complete and improve their scores.

Term 6 Week 5 (Home Learning Wk 12)

June 28, 2020

Dear Endeavour Class,

This week we are finding out about two pioneering women, Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale that lived during the Victorian age.  They both contributed massively to develop nursing as a profession and their legacy is what we appreciate today - especially if we have ever had to visit a hospital for medical help or seen a nurse at a Doctor's surgery.    Learn about what they did and why they are so famous.  Remember how only a few weeks ago, our government created extra emergency hospitals and named them Nightingale after one of our famous women we will discover more about this week.

Please find the daily plan document as last week.  Any maths worksheets will have been emailed to you last Friday.   Also, please let me know if there is any difficulty accessing any documents.

Year 5 are looking at measuring angles using a protractor and how to measure and draw angles accurately, moving on to calculating angles along a line and then around a point.   Year 6 is focussed on ratio, scale factors and proportion problems.

In English/SPaG this week, we will be reading about Victorian schools and using our knowledge to write about the experience of school children and teachers. Nettlebed had a school, in fact more than one school, in Victorian times and we will take a look at the history of our school in the Wednesday zoom.  If anyone has stories of the school from parents or grandparents, it would be lovely to hear about them.  Please do email me if you've got a story you'd like to share and I can pass it onto the topic zoom with Mrs Papworth for Wednesday this week.

Also this week is our Virtual Sports Day Events.  I hope you all enjoy practising your sports events and don't forget to send your point score sheet to Mrs Beirne by Friday morning.  Remember you get extra points for your House if you dress up as a Victorian -but we need to see a photograph.  Send them in with your score sheets and 'Reach Up'.  

There are spellings available for Year 5 on the above button for the remainder of this term.  Please use the lists how you wish to, remembering that you don't have to do all of them but if your child would like to have the challenge, then please do them all!  Year 6 have the regular spelling tests on SATs Boot Camp to complete and improve their scores.

Term 6 Week 4 (Home Learning Wk11)

June 21, 2020

Dear Endeavour Class,

This week we are finding out about the life of Charles Darwin, what he is famous for and how his thoughts and ideas have influenced our society today.  His views and opinions caused much controversy in Victorian England when he was alive, as nothing like them had ever been published before.  His book ' On The Origin of Species'  published in 1859, was very much in the news at the time and created discussion and heated debates for many decades.   As you research, find out why this caused such divided views in the country.

Please find the daily plan document as last week.  Any maths worksheets will have been emailed to you last Friday.   Also, please let me know if there is any difficulty accessing any documents.

Year 5 begin with reading and interpreting data in graphs and tables and then move onto multiplying and dividing decimals.    Year 6 is focussed on area, perimeter and volume of different 2D and 3D shapes, using the formulas by substitution to work out the answer.

In SPAG and English this week, we are going to be developing some ideas for writing. The workhouses of Victorian times were harsh, unforgiving places and the children will consider life in those difficult times and develop ideas to write a fictional story about a young boy, possibly with a special talent, who finds himself in this cruel environment.

There are spellings available for Year 5 on the above button for the remainder of this term.  Please use the lists how you wish to, remembering that you don't have to do all of them but if your child would like to have the challenge, then please do them all!  Year 6 have the regular spelling tests on SATs Boot Camp to complete and improve their scores.
