English

This week, we would like you to re-write the ending of the Bear and the Piano to make it your own version.

Day 1 – Last week, you created some notes for any changes you wanted to make to the ending. Today, we would like you to use those notes to write the first draft of your own ending. Remember that when writing up your notes, you will need to turn them into full sentences, remembering capital letters, full stops and determiners. When you finished your first draft, why don’t you read it to someone in your house to see what they think?

Day 2 – Here is a link to some interactive grammar games. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/7-11-years/spelling-and-grammar Follow it and scroll down to find What are Nouns? Click on this game and work your way through the activities.

Day 3 – Today, we would like you to read through the first draft of your own ending of The Bear and the Piano and make any changes to improve it. This will be your final draft. Make sure you have included all the appropriate punctuation (capital letters, full stops) and checked for any missing words.

Day 4 – Here is a link to some interactive grammar games. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/english-games/7-11-years/spelling-and-grammar This time, we would like you to scroll down to find The Adjective Detective. Click on this game and work your way through the activities.

Day 5 – Today, we would like you to publish the final version of your own ending of The Bear and the Piano. You can publish it in the same format as the book, with pictures to go with your writing, or you can come up with your own creative way to publish it (many as a mini booklet). When you have finished, you can show the finished product to someone in your house.

If you would like your finished work to be published on our school blog, you can take a picture of it on a phone or ipad and ask your grown up to email it to office@kingsley.croydon.sch.uk

Art

Last week, you created a mosaic using the Roman themed sketch you had previously drawn. We will have another go at this, but this week we would like you to create a different Roman themed sketch that you will use to later create another mosaic. Remember to use your sketching techniques: hatching, cross-hatching, stippling, scumbling, blending, shading and using bold and light outlines.

The Power of Kindness – ‘As the UK faces a global coronavirus pandemic, things can feel a little uncertain and even overwhelming. But, during these difficult times, one thing is clear: small acts of kindness make a big difference. Across the country, there has been an outpouring of kindness and children and young people can play their role too. By understanding what we can all do to help tackle this virus, they’ll gain a sense of stability and resilience. The power of kindness calendar helps children and young people learn about and carry out kind acts.’ – British Red Cross

Follow this link the British Red Cross website. https://www.redcross.org.uk/get-involved/teaching-resources/kindness-calendar## We would like you to use the resources available to create your own kindness calendar. You can use this to record daily acts of kindness, which you can look back on throughout your time in and after isolation. If you can’t access the resources from the website, you can create your own kindness calendar.

Reading

Please continue to read your chapter book for at least 20 minutes each day (or start a new one if you have finished!). Previously, we have looked at making some retrieval questions, where the answer can be found directly in the text. Last week, we focused on our inference skills, where the reader must use what is said in the text and their own knowledge of the world in order to answer the question. Today we would like you to develop your skills of prediction. To ‘predict’ means to ‘estimate what will happen in the future’ or what will be the ‘consequence of something’. When we predict as we are reading, we use clues that the author has provided through the use of vocabulary, for example.

Here is an extract from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:

Even aside from the rain and wind it hadn’t been a happy practice session. Fred and George, who had been spying on the Slytherin team, had seen for themselves the speed of those new Nimbus Two Thousand and Ones. They reported that the Slytherin team was no more than seven greenish blurs, shooting through the air like missiles. ‘

Will Fred and George do well against the Slytherin team? What is your prediction? Explain your answer using evidence from the text.

Recommend Reading

Here is a link to a list of inspiring, award winning books for you to read if you can. If you are able to find these books, make sure it is a KS2 book or a KS1 book if that is your current reading level.

Science

What we would like you to do this week, is to find patterns between the pitch of a sound and the features of the object that produced it.

In the video, the man explains how the speed of vibrations affect the pitch of a sound. Did you ever wonder how the actual features of the object affect the sound? For example, you bang a soft cushion and then you bang a hard, wooden table with the same amount of force. Which one made the loudest noise? Why? Come up with your own examples and try t explain the patterns between features of objects and the sounds that they make.
