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.


To help you with learning your spelling words, can you create either a word search or crossword word with your spelling words? Remember you can include your words horizontally, vertically, diagonally or backwards.  You will need to write the list of words to find within your word search.  Can you challenge someone at home to find all your words? 


Today we will build upon our factual retrieval skills.  Again use the green button (or click on the next green dot) to move between activities.

Your first task today is a quiz to assess how much you remember from yesterday's session regarding how to answer fact retrieval questions. Click your answers and submit. Remember to review your answers by viewing your score. Close the quiz to move on.


Watch the video clip which builds upon the previous lesson. The text for your session today is 'Sky Song' by Abi Elphinstone. Remember to magpie and note down new or exciting vocabulary and sentence structures which catch your eye. These will help you later in the week.  Read along with the text as you are listening - just like you would in class. If you find the audio reading of the text confusing (due to regional accents) you can turn the sound off and read the text out loud to yourself.  You might need to pause the video to give yourself enough time. 


At 11 minutes and 20 seconds, pause the video - you will be told to do this at the right time.  Then close the video and move on to the 'Next activity'.  Using the slides, re-read the text and answer the four questions based upon the text. Remember to refer back to the text either using your arrow keys on your keyboard or the left and right arrows on the bottom left of the slides. Record your answers in your book. Use the seven step checklist from yesterday - make sure you read the questions carefully!   In slide 9 you will revisit the able ending words for spelling focus.


Once you have finished, click the 'Resume Video' button at the top right of your screen. this will talk through the answers and strategies used. During this part of the video clip, self assess your work in a different colour.


The final activity is an exit quiz. Read the text and answer the three questions using the multiple choice answers. Can you apply your skills to get 3 out of 3?


Did you remember to add 'conjured' to your Magpie Page?


Today you will be answerings word problems based on converting between metric units of capacity. Please remember to follow the list of rules below when reading and working out the question. Also make sure you write your unit of measure in your answer.


Read - read through the question carefully before you answer it.

Understand - think about what the question wants you to find out. Do you need to find a total or                       do you need to find the difference? Underline the most important parts of the                                 question.

Choose - what do you need to do in order to answer the question? Do you need to add, subtract,                 divide or multiply? Does the question ask you to use more than one operation?

Solve - now that you have found your key information and you know what you need to do to find                 the answer, carefully complete the question.

Answer - remember that your answer should be in a full sentence. All the questions today use                   units of measure so it is really important to include this in our answer. For example, if the                 question is about kg then our answer needs to be in kg.

Check - we all make mistakes from time to time. Double check your answer by starting the whole               process again.

Foundation: History

Today we would like you to understand where the Anglo-Saxon period fits into British history.

Questions to ask yourself

Think about the topics you have studied in Year 3 and 4. Do you think the Anglo-Saxons came before these topics or after? 

What does the word chronological mean?

What does BC and AD mean? 


1. Draw a line across a piece of paper in landscape. 

2. Cut out the boxes on the British History worksheet. Which event happened most recently? Which event is the olderst?

3. Place the boxes in order starting with the oldest time period to the most recent. Put zero right in the middle of  the line. The dates one the left are things that happened during an BC year. The dates on the right are things that happened during an AD year.  Remember that when looking at BC dates, the bigger the number the older the time period is. 

4. Double check to make sure your boxes are in the correct order before sticking them onto your sheet.

5. Complete the steps again with the Anglo-Saxon events. There aren't any BC events so you don't need to put zero in the middle. Put the events in order from the oldest event to the newest event.

6. Are there any words on the Anglo-Saxon timeline sheet that you don't understand. For example, do you where Lindisfarne is? Write down a list of the words you haven't seen before.

7. Think of how you could word a question to find some information about the unknown word. You don't need to worry about finding out lots of information about it, just make sure you understand what the word means.
