Find your class homework here in the event of coronavirus school closure.

 

In the event of school closure, children are required to complete the following work daily:

- A maths challenge

- An English challenge

- 30 minutes of reading

- A topic challenge of their choice (a grid of 5 options will be added to the class page each week)

- Times tables practice

The maths and English tasks will be uploaded to the class page daily. A grid of 5 topic challenges will be uploaded on Monday - children can choose one of these to complete each day. Please see the letter sent home for additional resources that you can use with your child.

Date set: Wednesday 1st April

 

Cosmic

In the morning, I am going to upload Part 1 and Part 2 of the next chapter of Cosmic, 'TheMoonYouIdiot!' underneath today's work (look beneath the five topic challenges). I wonder if you recognise the name of this chapter? There was a similar one early in the book...!

 

In this chapter, the children are finally in space, and enjoying weightlessness! But, is there disaster just around the corner....!?

 

Daily English challenge:

On Monday, you wrote a description of a setting of your choice, and yesterday you introduced a problem to this setting. My example was a jungle setting, and the problem was that a ferocious tiger had just appeared!

 

Today, you're going to write the next paragraph, where this problem is going to be solved. My paragraph might involve finding a hiding place deep inside the trunk of a huge tree, where the tiger could no longer find me.

 

Remember not to come to your solution too quickly! Your main character might try one way of solving the problem, which doesn't work, before trying another way, which does work!

 

Don't forget to enjoy your 30 minutes of reading! 


Daily Maths challenge:

 

You do not have a task on MyMaths today. Instead, your task can be found in the resources below. Today you will be thinking about the properties of 3D shapes. Firstly, watch the following video for information on the properties of 3D shapes: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjv39j6/articles/zgqpk2p. Then complete the task on 3D shapes attached below. Choose from one of the following challenges:

 

Challenge 1: Complete the first 6 rows in the table (sphere to square-based pyramid)

Challenge 2: Complete the first 9 rows in the table (sphere to pentagonal prism)

Challenge 3: Complete the whole table.

 

You can also use the following definitions to help you:

 

Faces (also called surfaces sometimes) - a face is a flat or curved surface on a 3D shape. These are often in the form of 2D shapes. E.g. a square-based pyramid has a flat surface (a square) at the bottom.

 

Edges - an edge is where two faces meet.

 

Vertices - vertices are like the 'corners', or points, of a 3D shapes. The singular is vertex. 

 

You can find more videos on 3D shapes here:

Topic challenges:

Choose one of the following 5 challenges to complete each day.

Challenge 1: Computing. Last week in English, you wrote a travel advert for Baghdad in 900AD. Can you create a professional looking travel advert, using Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher, or any other programme of your choice? Remember to make it colourful to attract attention, and include images of key places you mention. If you don't have access to any suitable programmes, you can draw the advert out on paper. Look back at the example travel advert from last week to help with ideas if needed.

Challenge 2: RE. In RE, we have been learning all about Islam. In the resources below, I've attached some information and questions on Ramadan, which begins in just under a months time. Read the information and answer the questions. You can check your answers afterwards. There are three different levels of challenge to choose from.
Challenge 3: D&T. Why not help someone cook dinner this week, or make some biscuits/cakes/treats for your family? Remember to think about hygiene and which ingredients you would like to include. Think carefully about how different ingredients might affect the taste/texture of your dish.
Challenge 4: Music. Choose a verse from one of your favourite songs. Listen carefully to the lyrics and the instruments in the background. Using any instruments around your house, or any instruments you can create from materials around your home (e.g. using tins like drums), can you sing this verse, adding your own background music? You could record it using a recording app to share with friends!
Challenge 5: Topical. With the sun last week, and the light staying longer in the evenings, it finally feels like Spring is here! What are you favourite things about Spring? Draw a poster celebrating your favourite things about Spring. Mine are seeing new life growing and feeling the warmth of the Sun returning.

Cosmic

I have uploaded another recording of the next chapter of Cosmic, 'I Want my Daddy!' underneath today's work, if you would like to have a mission. In this chapter, the children are finally ready to take-off...!

 

Daily English challenge:

Yesterday, you wrote a description of a setting that you might visit if you were in the magical sledge that you saw in the video 'Taking Flight!' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gj6V-xZgtlQ). Today, you are going to write the next paragraph in your story. Your character has found themselves in the setting that you have just described, and now you need to write the problem paragraph. Think of something which might go wrong in your setting. For example, if you have written about a jungle setting, a ferocious tiger might have just appeared! 

 

Write your problem paragraph, but no further! Try to include some action using -ing sentences starters (e.g. 'Scrambling, he bolted through the forest', or, 'Scrambling over the thick roots, he bolted through the forest').

 

Don't forget to enjoy your 30 minutes of reading! 


Daily Maths challenge:

 

Your MyMaths task today is more practise with translation.

 

Translating shapes just means moving shapes to a new position. To translate shapes, put your cursor on one corner of the shape. From here, just count the number of squares to the left/right and up/down, dragging your shape to its new position. Watch this video for support with translating shapes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR__8E6KzTo

 

I've also included a translation maths task in the resources below. For this task, you need to explain the translation and record the co-ordinates of translated shapes. There are three separate challenge levels for you to choose from, and answers for each challenge.

Date set: Monday 30th March

 

Good morning Fox Class! I hope that you all had lovely weekends, and got some extra sleep when the clocks went forwards. Your daily English and maths challenges can be found below, along with a grid of five new topic challenges smiley

 

Daily English challenge:

Taking Flight! Watch the following YouTube clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gj6V-xZgtlQ. If you don't have access to the internet, the clip is all about a young boy who visits his Grandad, expecting to be bored. He finds a sledge in his Grandad's garage, and his Grandad takes him out on it. When riding the sledge, they suddenly transport to lots of different places, including a jungle!

Your task today is to write a description of a setting that you might visit if you were in the sledge. Think carefully about what you can see, hear, smell, touch and possibly taste. Try to use some expanded noun phrases (e.g. ‘the gigantic parrot with colourful feathers’, or ‘the towering tall with luscious, green leaves’) in your writing.

 

Don't forget to enjoy your 30 minutes of reading! 


Daily Maths challenge:

 

Your MyMaths task today is all about translation and reflection of shapes.

 

Translating shapes just means moving shapes to a new position. To translate shapes, put your cursor on one corner of the shape. From here, just count the number of squares to the left/right and up/down, dragging your shape to its new position. Watch this video for support with translating shapes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR__8E6KzTo

 

For question 2, when reflecting shapes, choose a corner of the shape to begin. Count how many squares it is away from the mirror line, then count the same number of squares on the other side of the line. Place the corner where you land. Repeat for each corner of the shape.

Well done to everybody who has kept up with their work smiley Have a lovely weekend!

 

Daily English challenge:

 

Today's English task is to complete your travel advert. Use your plan and the example text to support you.

 

Firstly, you need to write some quotes of people who have visited Baghdad in 900AD. Remember, they need to explain how fantastic their experience was, giving examples of the things that they enjoyed the most. Don't forget to include perfect speech punctuation (see yesterday's English challenge).

Don't forget to enjoy your 30 minutes of reading! 


Daily Maths challenge:

In maths so far, we have been completing work on our new maths topic - shape and position. Today's task is to recap a previous topic. Your MyMaths today is short and long multiplication.

 

Remember, when you're doing long multiplication, multiply by the ones digit first. Then, place a zero, and multiply by the tens digit. Finally, add these two numbers together. Make sure you show your workings in your home learning book.

 

If you want some further practice, ask a family member to make up some calculations for you. If you have a dice in a board game, you could use this to create your own numbers and calculations.

 

Topic challenges:

Choose one of the following 5 challenges to complete each day.

Challenge 1: Science. In science we have begun looking at air resistance. Design your own parachute - it must create as much air resistance as possible! Label the different features which increase air resistance. See the following clip for information about air resistance: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zsjd7ty. If you're feeling brave, you could create this paragraph, attach an egg, and try dropping from a height to see whether your parachute stops the egg from breaking! See resources attached below for additional support.

Challenge 2: Geography. In Geography, we've been looking at physical and human features of Baghdad (in 900AD) and London (in 2020). List the human features that you can think of in each of these countries. Using the internet, or your own knowledge, describe what these human features look like and what they are made of. You could draw a picture of them too!
Challenge 3: Art. In science, we have begun learning about the parts of a flower. If you have some flowers or plants at home or in the garden, try sketching them. Think carefully about how you can use tone, texture and shading to make your sketch as realistic as possible.
Challenge 4: PSHE. How do we stay hygienic? Design a poster explaining how you can stay hygienic, looking after your health and body.
Challenge 5: History. We have been learning all about the Golden Age of Islam. Can you teach somebody at home what you know about the Golden Age of Islam? You could create a PowerPoint, design a poster or write an information text to help you to explain. 

Date set: Thursday 26th March

 

Daily English challenge:

 

For English today, you have a grammar task which can be found in today's resources section below. You need to add the correct speech punctuation to the passage (there are three different challenges to choose from, and answers to check your work against). Copy the passage into your home learning book, adding the appropriate punctuation.

 

Remember, all speech needs:

: Inverted commas (speech marks) around what is said
: A capital letter at the beginning of speech
: A comma, exclamation mark or question mark inside inverted commas, to separate speech from the reporting clause
: If the reporting clause comes first, a comma after the reporting clause to separate it from speech
: A new line for every new speaker

Daily Maths challenge:

On MyMaths, you have been set a task about symmetry. The first question asks you about lines of symmetry. Remember, whatever is on one side of the line should be an exact reflection of what is on the other side of a line. Complete the MyMaths lesson and/or watch the following video for support: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/maths-ks2-finding-lines-of-symmetry/zktfgwx (You might have to enable Flash player in your settings if this video doesn’t work).

 

For question 2, you need to reflect a shape in a line, and record the new co-ordinates. Use the steps below to help you.

 

  1. Choose a corner of the shape (e.g. A). Count how many squares this is away from the reflection line.
  2. To reflect this corner, count the same number of squares on the other side of the line. This is where the corner of the reflected shape will be.
  3. Record the co-ordinates of this new point. Remember to read the number on the x axis (the line along the bottom) and then the number on the y axis (going up the page).

 

Then, complete the maths task uploaded below (choose from challenge 1, 2 or 3). You can mark your work using the answers afterwards.

 

If you want more practice, there is a good activity on the following website: https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/82/itp-symmetry

Cosmic!

Firstly, I have uploaded an audio recording of the next chapter of Cosmic (you can find this below today's work) if you would like to have a listen. I will continue to record readings so that we can still finish Cosmic smiley

 

Daily English challenge:

 

Your English task today is to write the next two paragraphs of your travel advert, persuading the reader to visit Baghdad in 900AD. See your plan and the example text in your home learning folders to support you. If you do not have an example text, I have uploaded one below that you can look at.

 

Your third paragraph should be all about what to eat in Baghdad. Remember, many meals were eaten in courtyards. You can watch the video that we watched in class for ideas on what food might have been eaten (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QyKqsQ72hY). For your fourth paragraph, think about the location of Baghdad and what’s nearby. You could talk about visits to the Syrian desert or Mecca/Medina in the neighbouring country Syria. Think about how to describe these to persuade your reader to visit.

 

Don't forget to enjoy your 30 minutes of reading! 


Daily Maths challenge:

For your maths, you will be looking at rectangles and irregular polygons. Firstly, complete the task on MyMaths. Remember the following to support you:

 

  • To find the perimeter of a shape, add all sides together
  • To find the area of a rectangle, multiply the height by the length
  • Regular polygons have all angles the same size, and all sides the same length.
  • Irregular polygons have angles of different sizes and sides of different lengths.

 

Then, choose one of the two tasks uploaded below to complete. For the challenge 1 task, you need to calculate the area and perimeter of the shapes. Then use the answers to check your work.

 

For the challenge 2 task, you need to calculate the perimeter and area of composite shapes. To find the perimeter, find any missing side lengths and add all side lengths together. To find the area, split the shape into smaller squares and/or rectangles, find the areas of each of these and then add them all together.

Liam and Florida are just preparing to be launched into space. Remember, the PiP contains everything that Liam is allowed to take into space with him...

Date set: Tuesday 24th March

 

Daily English challenge:

For English today, you have a spelling task. In English recently, we’ve looked at -ible and -able suffixes, and when to attach these to the end of root words to create adjectives. For example, the root word ‘adore’ (a verb) can be changed into the adjective ‘adorable’ by adding ‘-able’. I’ve uploaded a sheet below, which has three separate challenges and answers, where you need to add the ‘ably’ or ‘ibly’ suffix to the end of root words (adjectives) to change them into adverbs (e.g. comfortable to comfortably). There’s also a poster with rules to remember when to choose -ibly and when to choose -ably.

 

Don't forget to enjoy your 30 minutes of reading! 


Daily Maths challenge:

Well done to everyone who completed the first maths task! If you click on ‘Scores’ at the top of your MyMaths screen, and then the last task completed, you can see any feedback that I provide by the speech bubbles at the bottom.

 

For today’s task, you will be calculating missing angles.

 

For this you will need to use your knowledge of different angles – a right angle is 90 degrees, a straight line is 180 degrees, and a full turn is 360 degrees. Subtract any known angles from the full angle (whether it is 90 degrees, 180 degrees, a full turn, etc) to calculate a missing angle. Also remember that opposite angles are always equivalent.

 

I’ve uploaded a PowerPoint (and some photos from this PowerPoint if you cannot access the PowerPoint) below, to model this task. There is a task on MyMaths, and I’ve also attached an activity to complete below (within which there are challenges 1, 2 and 3).

Daily English challenge:

Today, your English task is to write the first two paragraphs of your travel advert to Baghdad in 900AD. Use the example text and your plan in your home learning folder to support you. If you were not in school to receive your home learning folder, please find the example text attached below, and see information below for what you should include in your writing. 

 

Your first paragraph is your introduction, where you need to encourage the reader to read on. The second paragraph is all about what things there are to do during your stay in Baghdad in 900AD (think about the House of Wisdom, the baths, the mosques, and so forth). Remember, you are persuading your reader, so use description to make everything sound fantastic!

Don't forgot your basic punctuation while you write - proofreading and editing with another colour can be a great way to check this :) 

 

Don't forget to enjoy your 30 minutes of reading! 


Daily Maths challenge:

Your task today has been set on MyMaths. Firstly, you need to label whether given angles are acute, obtuse, right, reflex or straight. Then you need to estimate and compare the size of angles. When estimating, remember to use your knowledge of what the following look like to support you: 90 degrees (a right angle), 180 degrees (a straight line) and 270 degrees (a three quarter turn/three right angles).

 

See the following video for support: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zb6tyrd/articles/zg68k7h

Complete the lesson on MyMaths before beginning the work if you are unsure.

For some extra maths, see what angles you can identify around your home! Are they right angles (e.g. the corner of your TV screen), acute, obtuse, reflex, or straight?

Welcome to Fox Class

 

Spring Term

What was important about the Golden Age of Islam?

 

This term we will be learning all about the Golden Age of Islam. We will begin by exploring the importance of the Prophet Muhammad, as the founder of Islam. Then, we’ll look at how the Golden Age of Islam began, and what it was like to live in Baghdad at this time. We will explore why this was such an important time in history, exploring the famous scholars of the time and how their study has effected what we know about the world today. In art, we will look at creating geometric patterns in our own Islamic style art.

 

What fills the space between us and the stars?

 

Our science topic this term takes us far away from planet Earth, to explore space. We will think about what else exists in the galaxy around us, looking at how the position and movements of Earth influence the way our planet is and how we experience seasons, years and months, as well as day and night. In English, we will use our imaginations to write space-themed stories.

PE

 

PE is every Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that you have a PE kit suitable for all weather in on each of these days. It will be useful if PE kit can be kept in school all week, as sometimes our PE days might change due to weather and other activities.

 

 

Homework

 

Must:

Our ‘must’ homework will be set on a Friday and is expected back in the following Thursday. This includes:

  • Spellings to be practised for a spelling assessment on Thursdays
  • -MyMaths/English homework

 

Should:

  • Children are expected to read 5 days a week at home. This can be alone or with an adult, but we encourage sharing books at home! This should be recorded in children’s reading diaries.
  • Children are expected to practise times tables regularly. Being quick at recalling times tables is very helpful in maths lessons, and supports lots of other maths learning that we do in school. Children can practise with others or practise online using Times Tables Rockstars.

 

Could:

  • Children might also like to complete one or more of the Nandos challenges! These are not compulsory, but are fun activities which relate to our topic, and can be done with parents at home.
