Wednesday 3rd February 2021

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week. Make sure you take some time out for yourself to relax, reflect and ‘Express Yourself’ by sharing feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through things like art, writing, music, dance and baking. We hope that by doing things that make you feel good, you can improve your mental health, especially when facing tough situations or difficult times. smiley


08:45 - 09:00 - Word of the Day


What does it mean? 

Can you think of synonyms and antonyms? 

What word class does it belong to: adjectives, verbs, nouns or adverbs? 

How many syllables does the word have? 

Can you include it in a sentence? Remember capital letters and punctuation. 


09:00 - 09:30 - Reading 


Read the text all about dolphins! Learn about what dolphins look like, where they live and how they hunt. Answer the questions on the sheet. It might be helpful to underline key words in the questions to remind you of what to look for.  


09:30 - 09:50 -SPaG

Complete the SPaG – ENP mini-test. To do well, you need to remember what nouns, simple noun phrases and expanded noun phrases are. Remember, if a noun has a determiner and adjective in front of it, we call it an expanded noun phrase. 


09:50 - 10:30 - Zoom Call


10:30 - 10:45 - Break Time

Have a drink, exercise or get some fresh air if you can!


10:45 - 11:30 - Maths

What is area? 

Today you will be learning about area. Take a look at this video and then have a go at the White Rose worksheet. 


Finished? Would you like a challenge?   

Have a go at working out the Day 3 Challenge. The document is in the learning resources. 


11:30 - 12:30 - English

Read Lesson 3 – Cinquain features. Today, you will be using your mind maps from yesterday to create your own cinquain poems. Pick out the most effective words from your plan – these might be the most amusing, the most descriptive, powerful feeling words or ambitious verbs. Experiment with your words and remember, they should have 5 lines. Make sure you have the right number of syllables in each line too. Clap to count the syllables in each word (like we do in Word of the Day). If you’re still not sure, use the syllable counter 


12:30 - 13:30 - Lunch Time


Afternoon - Wider Curriculum 


We know much more about the history of listening to music now and believe it or not, records are still used to record music. It’s really important the record sleeve (the cover) is exciting, interesting and visually striking because it makes people want to buy it. You are going to be looking at some very famous designs and creating a mood board to help you design your own jazz album cover next week. Here are a couple of examples: Read Art Lesson Plan 1 – Mood Board to find out more.
