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.
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.
Please use the website 'readtheory.org'. Your child has logon details given to them and it should be in their planner. Please access the website here.
Maths Year 5 and 6 - All work can be practised by using the Active Learn maths website. The children will know their logon details. The website can be found by clicking here. There are 'homework' tasks which are two sides of A4. Please complete one by printing off (if possible) or writing answers down in a book or paper. The answer sheet is also next to it so the work can be marked at home after completion.
