Monday 8th June - Class 4

06 Jun 2020

Good Morning Class 4

Hi all...Happy Monday! smiley I hope you all had a lovely weekend, even if the weather wasn't great! 

The Year 6 children are back in school with Mrs Lewis today so it's just me and you, Year 5. Let's all have a great day! 

I am running out of clip ideas now!! This is one that we have used in class before, but again is a good one. smiley I hope you like it!


Remember that if you would like to send me examples of your work, or simply want to tell/ ask me something then you can use Purple Mash email or the class email address: I'm always happy to hear from you. 

TTrockstars update at 2pm
With an hour and a half to go, it's the boys who are currently leading! Keep going girls, you could still catch them! smiley


These are your tasks for today. Remember, you can do the tasks in any order, and you don't have to do everything if you don't have time. yes 


Have a look at the below link. There are lots of ideas for different PE type activities that you could do at home; give one a go!

Reading task:                                                                                                                                     
Nothing has changed here...I still want you to read for 30 minutes! Remember to keep doing the AR quizzes when you complete a book as you would do at school. Follow the link below:

Maths task:          
Today, I would like you to play the 'match the fraction' game at the below link. You can choose whether you do fractions or mixed number fractions; you can also choose which level you play at, starting at 1 all the way up to 8. You can have more than one go so you could always start low and then see how high you can go. Challenge yourself! This is the link:

I have also created a tournament on tt rockstars for boys versus girls. It is 1-1 so far so let's see who wins today! The tournament will run from 9am to 3.30pm.


Spelling task:     

During your daily walk today or outside in the garden or even through the window if it's raining, I would like you to write a list of nature related expanded noun phrases (for example, ‚Äčthe tall conifer by the wall). This list will come in useful for some of your work later in the week. 

Writing task:


I have attached an image of a rainforest below. Today, I would like you to write a description of it. You are aiming to put a clear image in the reader's mind of this picture. To do this, you should use all your senses to describe it, and do it in an engaging way using figurative language. Take the reader on a walk through this setting; you can write it in your exercise book or type it up. 

Being kind...

I am leaving this on here as a reminder so that you don't forget to always make the effort to be kind. This could be done in a variety of ways, it could be: some kind words when they are needed; a drink or snack made for someone; tidying up; dishwasher emptying; a message to someone who might be feeling down; a hug (to someone in your household); or something else, whatever it is, it will be worth it to make someone else smile! 

Learning project:

The focus for this week's project is 'rainforests'. 

The projects this week aim to provide opportunities for you to learn more about the world's rainforests. Learning may focus on the plants, animals and insects that inhabit the rainforest, food that originates there and weather patterns. It could look at plants and animals that can be found in the garden too. 

Choose one of these projects to start this afternoon. smiley
‚óŹ Deforestation: Destroying Animal Habitats and The Homes of Humans- ‚ÄčDeforestation occurs in ‚Äčrainforests‚Äč throughout the world. Trees are cut down on a huge scale, often to create space for grazing livestock or buildings. As part of this process, ‚Äčanimal habitats and the homes of native people are often destroyed‚Äč. Can you create a poster highlighting the impact of deforestation on both humans and animals. Can you think of possible solutions to some of these challenges and include these solutions on your posters. ‚Äč

 ‚óŹ Welcome to The Jungle: Let Creativity Roar!- ‚ÄčHenri Rousseau was a French painter from the 19th Century who created many paintings inspired by jungles and rainforests, although he never actually visited one. Can you explore ‚Äčfacts about this famous painter and create a jungle/rainforest piece of ‚Äčartwork in his style‚Äč. You could draw, paint or create a collage, depending on the resources you have available at home.              

 ‚óŹ Discovering Far off Lands-
‚ÄčIn the 16th century, Sir Walter Raleigh ‚Äčsailed the Atlantic Ocean in search of a place called El Dorado. His expedition took him to Guyana and his search led him to discover the country’s rainforest. 400 years on, a group of children have taken on the challenge to follow in Sir Walter’s footsteps in their own expedition to Guyana. You should watch the below clip and explore the others on the ‚ÄčBBC Teach website‚Äč. Can you plan your own expedition and consider what you would need to take with you. Alternatively, you could write a first-hand account of your time in the rainforest from the perspective of Sir Walter. Remember that Sir Walter would not have had access to the mod cons we do now.

 ‚óŹ Rumble in The Jungle - Get that Heart Rate Going! - Can you increase your heart rate by challenging yourself and members of the family to mimic the actions of animals which inhabit rainforests. Actions could include: jumping over logs, ducking under branches, high knees through quicksand, running from a tiger etc. Can you record your heart rate (beats per minute) after each activity. Which activity increased your heart rate most? 

 ‚óŹ Deforestation: Our Climate and Our Planet‚Äč- ‚ÄčAs well as impacting on animal habitats and native people, deforestation is also a major contributor towards climate change. Can you create an awareness leaflet about the effects of ‚Äčclimate change on our planet and how ‚Äčdeforestation is contributing towards this‚Äč.

Have a great day everyone.

Take care 

Mrs Barker
