Foundation - Art @10am

It's time to draw-a-long with Rob! The draw-a-long is live at 10am, however the video will be added to the website if you would prefer to draw at a different time.

Pop a photo of your completed picture on Seesaw so we can see your great drawings!  Remember that once you have the outline of your drawing, you can adapt it to develop your own personal style.


Use the Look, Cover, Write, check method with your spellings today.  How many can you get right?

Look - look at the first word, identify the tricky part.

Cover - place your hand or an object over the  first spelling so you can't see it.

Write - write down the first spelling word from memory.

Check - uncover the word and check to see if you have got it right - remember to check each letter. If you haven't got it right, underline the part where you have muddled letters to help you next time.

Repeat for each of your spellings - one at a time.


For the rest of the week, we will be looking at poetry to develop our reading skills and revise some areas of grammar.


Firstly, read the poem 'What do you want to be?' Try reading it in your head and out loud.

Watch the poet perform his poem - did it sound like you expected it to? What did you notice about Wilf Merttens' performance?


Read the 'Poetry Questions' and record your answers in full sentences. Try to include quotes to back up your ideas.


Write a letter to Wilf Merttens to tell him about the poem. Include what you like and what you disliked about the poem. If you have any questions, include those too. If you know what you would like to do in the future, add this to your letter.  Perhaps Wilf has made you think about your future or has suggested an idea you had never thought of.

Whilst writing, think about:

* your level of formality,

* including relative clauses,

* clear sentence construction,

* appropriate opening and closing,

* include your own opinions and support with quotes from the poem.




Today we would like you to combine two things. You will be converting between metric units of mass, as well as reading scales and understanding number lines. Make sure you look very carefully at your number line and don't make any assumptions. Make sure you know that the difference is between your first number on the scale and your last. Then divide your difference by the number of lines on your number line to make sure you know what each step is worth. Don't just assume that each line is worth 1!

Foundation: History

Today we will be starting our topic this term, which is all about the Anglo-Saxons. Read through the Powerpoint to find out where the Anglo-Saxons came from and begin to think about why they came to Britain.


Using the map at the end of the Powerpoint, choose three different colours to represent the three groups that make up the Anglo-Saxons. One the first map, colour in all of the parts of Britain that were invaded by each group. Make sure you also include a key so that we know which colour goes with which group. 


Then colour the second map to show the route each of the groups took and where they came from.
