Howdy folks!

I hope you all had a brilliant time in the snow yesterday and if there's any left today please, please, please get out and enjoy it all over again today!  

When you're fully snowed out, here's what we're doing (maybe) today ;-)

IMPORTANT: You can choose to do none,  some or all of the following tasks today as you will no doubt be exhausted from all that snow!

Reading:  Carefully read the Stig of the dump Bookflix text below.  Then use the Bookflix Skills sheet and look carefully at the Re-tell in 5 section.  Your task is to focus on the five most important parts from the text and re-tell in your own words what has happened.  Write a sentence explaining each part in detail.  Write them in your remote learning books or on Seesaw and send me a pic when you're done.

English: We need to try and keep learning our spellings each week so today's English task is to read carefully though the powerpoint below and learn all about adding 'ly' to the endings of adjectives to turn them into adverbs.  The powerpoint explains what to do and there's a noughts and crosses game to play which should be a bit of fun. When you're done have a go at the completing the documents below (or on Seesaw).  These can be done today or if you prefer to complete them over the next week, then that's fine. Send a pic in on Seesaw when you've completed them.   Next Friday try and find someone to test you on this week's spellings.  I've also added a game on EdShed for you to play to help you learn them.

 

P.E: Miss Crowley has set you a task on Seesaw for today's P.E. lesson, so get your P.E. kit on and head over there!

Hi guys,

Well first up, it's snowing so stop what you're doing and get your coats, gloves and boots on.  Then get outside and have loads of fun in the snow! Sledge riding, snow angels, snow men are all out there waiting for you!  Have fun!!!!

When you get back in you can thaw out and continue reading. ;-) 

Congratulations on so much great debating about the Stone Age yesterday! I was seriously impressed especially how creative people were.  We had Abbie and Maisie debating live using their phones and so many of you getting family members involved so that you could respond to other sides of the debate.  You really can argue your points - there's definitely some lawyers and politicians in the making!!! A scary thought, I know!

Right, better crack on!

Today's learning looks like this:

Reading: We haven't done any Read Theory for a while so please use your logins in your remote learning books to get on and have a go at your latest text.  Read the text carefully and more than once if necessary before answering the questions.  Try and aim for 20 - 30 minutes work on this and see how many questions you can get right in this time. Move onto a new text if you finish the one you are working on.  I'll check the site later to see how people have got on.  Good luck! 

English: Listen to the Stone Age Boy story carefully by clicking the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqy5ENpagts 

Your task today is to retell the Stone Age Boy story in as much detail as possible to someone else - family member, friend or record it on Seesaw and tell me.  Use the connectives mat I've added below to help you link your sentences together when you are retelling the story.  You could listen to the story and take notes as you go along to remind you what happens.  Or you could make a cartoon comic strip of all the events which you could look at when you retell the story in your own words.  Story maps are another good idea or whatever method would work for you. 

Maths:  Today's math's is about using different written methods of multiplication.  I've set you the task on Seesaw but any problems please use this link to the video https://vimeo.com/491687378 and the worksheet is available below. 

Choose a Challenge Level - Bronze:  questions 1 - 2      Silver:  questions 1 - 4          Gold:  questions 1 -6

Maths answers - Please see document below.

History: Miss Crowley has set you a task on Seesaw so please head over there to see what's in store.

Hello there guys, 

Today's learning looks like this:

Reading: Please have a look on Seesaw for today's task.

Write down and explain your reasons in your Remote Learning books. 

Use the list of conjunctions I've added below to help you explain. 

Maths: Your task is on Seesaw but here you go anyway,  I know a lot of people found our work on Factor Pairs last week quite tricky. So I've found a different way to explain what to do, which hopefully might help.

Click on the link and watch the video as many times as you need to so that you understand what to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0wIJ4qhQW4

Then create a collection of Factor bugs to show off how clever you are.

PSHE:  Today's PSHE lesson is all about ways we can keep our minds healthy.

Firstly, look through the Powerpoint I've added below all about Healthy Minds (or I've added a PDF version to this Seesaw task)

Next, click on the link and watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yF7Ou43Vj6c

Finally, complete the worksheet below (or the one on Seesaw) by drawing and explaining 5 different things you do (or will do) to keep your mind healthy.

Wednesday 6th January

Well hello there! Welcome to the first day of our remote learning 2021 style and well done for finding your way to this page.  Well as you probably know by now our Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday night that schools would be closing until at least the end of this half term.  That means we won't be back all together in school for at least the next six or seven weeks - Big Boo Hiss!!!  So, we had better get used to this remote learning lark once again!  

I'll just explain what is going to happen - 

Each day I will post work for you on here and explain what to do and where the resources are.  We will use Seesaw to communicate with each other and I will often set tasks on there for you, just like we do for homework.  I will always tell you what to do each day on this webpage, so always look on here first before looking on Seesaw.  Each day we will do some Reading, English, Maths and some Topic work.

For Topic we'll do the following:

Art / DT -  Mondays

PSHE - Tuesdays

Science - Wednesdays

History - Thursdays 

P.E - Fridays. 

If you're going into school on any days to learn you'll do the same / similar type of lessons with the teacher helping you so we'll all learn together.

Any problems with anything please get your parents to email me btownsend@ridgeway.derbyshire.sch.uk 

 

Right, we better get started then - here's what we are doing today!

 

Reading: Bookflix - Use the Bookflix Skills sheet below to help you 'Thought Talk' and 'Circle & Fix' your way through the text I've put on Seesaw for you to complete. 

English: Use this link to listen to the story Stone Age Boy again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqy5ENpagts

When you've finished the story open the Thesaurus Challenge sheet below and use an online thesaurus e.g. https://www.thesaurus.com/   to find different synonyms for each word on the sheet.  Write down the synonyms for each word in your remote learning book.

Choose a Challenge Level - Bronze: 3 synonyms   Silver:  5 synonyms  Gold:  7 synonyms 

Then use your new word lists to help you write a description of the Stone Age campsite scene picture I've added in the documents below.   You can continue to use the thesaurus to help you find better words to add into your description of the campsite.

Your description could go something like this: 

Before I knew it, I was at a campsite.  Om pointed towards a woman kneeling on a chestnut brown animal skin.  The woman appeared to be rubbing the skin with a small grey boulder.  Another woman nearby was carefully gutting fish and hanging them on a frame of wooden stakes and twigs.  etc, etc.

Write your description in your remote learning book and send a picture of it along with your list of synonyms on Seesaw.  I have set up for you to do this -  just open Seesaw and complete the English Task activity.  Remember to click 'Add response' before sending in your work.

Look at the 'Mix and match sentences' sheet provided below.  Can you cut out and match the informal sentence starter to an ending that makes sense? Then can you match the sentence to an event in the film?

After that, use the 'Create your own informal phrases' sheet.  This will help you start your informal chatty sentences. Try and think of some of your own informal phrases / sentences – how would you talk to your friends?

See if you can write informal chatty sentences that start with each sentence starter from the sheet and could be used in Tadeo Jones's diary about his adventure. 

e.g. Perhaps I will find treasure today.  Just think, I could be a rich man!

Think about what Tadeo might say then write your sentences in your remote learning books and send in a picture on Seesaw.
