Wednesday 10th February

 

If you're not joining us for our catch up this afternoon, why not have a go at making your own Viking shield ready for next term's project! I'd love to see some photos! Here are some ideas to get you started:

Tuesday 9th February

 

This afternoon is your final session on your booklet that we started last Wednesday, meaning that you will be writing your report today. Use the structure that you used for your non-chronological report on rocks to split the information into suitable paragraphs and remember to keep the language formal!

 

This is really good practice for formal vs informal language because you are also thinking about your chatty diary entry so it's a great way to show that you understand the difference. 

Week 5

Listen to some of our amazing earthquake soundscapes by following the link below:

Kahoot Quiz

 

There is another Kahoot quiz to play, all about rocks. It combines things that you have learnt so far this term but if you need a refresher then maybe look at the slides below first!

 

When you are ready to have some fun, follow the instructions below:

 

Go to Kahoot on:

Wednesday activity 2:

Please click on the link below to access a quiz covering your rocks and volcanoes knowledge from the past 2 weeks. You can use any of the resources from the website, your books or even Google!

 

The results come back to Mrs Clarke so please put your name down on Question 1.

Volcanoes - Geography

1. Please watch these videos (the top one first) before accessing the learning below:

2. Today's reading is on the link below.

Useful pages for each group are:

- Phonics Groups 1 and 2 up to page 7.

- Phonics Groups 3 and 4 up to page 11.

- Phonics Group 5 - the whole thing. 

3. The link below is the activity for the lesson. The first page is an example of a volcano with the labels that I would like you to use on your model. You don't need to print this out and fill it in (unless you want to!) but please make sure that however you create your model, you use the labels from the first sheet. 

 

4. The second page has the questions that I'd like you to answer after reading the presentation or watching the videos. I don't expect you all to do all of the questions. 

- Phonics Groups 1 and 2, please complete questions 1 and 2. 

- Phonics Groups 3 and 4, please answer questions 1, 2 and 3. 

- Phonics Group 5, please answer all of the questions. 

Examples for your model

Remember that we need to see the inside of the volcano so that you can show where the magma rises up through the magma chamber, throat and vent.

Mary Anning - History

Some of the words in this lesson will be challenging for your children to read. Please encourage them to listen to Mrs Clarke on the video and pause it when they get to a word they find tricky. They can repeat the word and practise saying it themselves. There are separate question sheets for children who may need some support with finding information in a lengthy text - the relevant section of the text has been cropped and placed beneath the appropriate question. If your child doesn't need this support, please encourage them to scan the text to find a section that might contain the answer they need. 

 

Please do not expect your child to answer all of the questions, unless they are happy to do so. For those finding this challenging, three or four questions will be enough.

Wednesday 6th January - Geography

For an extra challenge, can you write (in your own words) what the different types of plate boundaries are? Maybe you could build some models using Lego or something similar and send me some photos?! 

 

Some of the plates move towards each other.

Some of the plates pull away from each other.

Some of the plates slide against each other. 

Use the slides to find their names and describe what happens at the boundaries (earthquakes, volcanoes etc.)

Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics Theory

There are some slightly different phrases and words in this video, but the animations should be helpful in demonstrating how the tectonic plates move due to continental drift.
The children in school have made a PowerPoint to demonstrate their understanding of the different tectonic plate boundaries. Hopefully it will help you if you're finding some of the words a little confusing like we were to begin with!
