Remote Learning for Self-Isolation and Bubble Closure

PLESE NOTE: This work is for self-isolation and bubble closure, not for school closure during lockdown. For remote learning during lockdown, please visit the daily schedules.

 

What work should I do if I have to work from home? 

 

You might have to work at home if we have a partial or full school closure due to Covid-19. It is also quite possible that you might have to work at home because you are self-isolating. This might happen quite frequently this term as people have to self-isolate for 10 days if anyone in their house has Covid-19 symptoms. If you have symptoms yourself, you would have to self-isolate for 10 days. If the person with symptoms has a negative test, no-one in the household has symptoms and you haven't been in contact with someone who has a positive test, you can then come back to school. 

 

If you are at home and fit to work, please follow the tasks below. This will reflect work we will be following in class as well, using the Oak National Academy.

 

You may work on more of these lessons if you want. For example, if I have written for you to work 'once a week', you may work more than that if you are interested and want to take your learning further.

Just Talk - Five Ways to Wellbeing Pre-Learning

 

When we return to school next week, we will be working on a well-being project. There is an introduction to this to watch today. Please watch the video that you can find here. The video itself lasts about 8 minutes, so this is a short session, but please take time to think about what Sarah says as it will link to work we will be doing when you come back.

Books and the Real World

 

World Book Day was yesterday, but the live session aimed directly at our age group will be broadcast at 10:30. You are welcome to watch that and take part today. You can find it here.

Drama and Performing Arts Pre-Learning and Planning

 

We are not going to let lockdown and Covid restrictions prevent us from one of the most looked-forward-to events of Year 6. In fact, we might even be able to use the situation to good effect, to do something even better.

 

We need to select, plan, cast, rehearse and perform a production for the summer. Whether or not this can be performed for a live audience, we will plan to create a filmed production, using video and greenscreen technology. 

 

Please follow the links that will appear here on Friday to start planning and thinking about what we might do. 

 

Musicline

Have a look at the Musicline website (for musicals aimed at ages 7-11). Look at the description, the synopsis, the reviews and the sample scripts and songs for musicals you might be interested in.

 

Also look at the following sites for their musicals. What interests you? Take notes and let me know. We will discuss this as a class when we return.

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE 

 

I have changed the focus of this session as I don't think I will have enough time to get up the links I intended using. Instead I am giving you some pre-learning for electricity, which we will be doing in science.

 

Please work on this task. It was designed to last more than one day but I don't expect you to complete it in the time you have - however, it will be a useful introduction for you. Please note that the 'Circuit World' activity is unlikely to work now because Flash is no longer supported. However, the rest of the links work. There is also a video that might help you - please be aware that this was recorded by me during the previous lockdown. All of the links are still there but look different now.

Thursday 4th March

It is World Book Day today. You have three choices today for your work.

1) You may work on World Book Day activities for the entire day if you wish. I have given a series of tasks to explore and get involved with below. 

2) You may continue to work on your website, developing and improving it (or starting it if you want to get started). We will be using websites as part of our computing and other subjects when we come back to school as well.

3) You may continue with the work given earlier on this week and last week, using the extension activities as you wish.

You may also do a combination of these things.

 

Please Note - Apart from the live lesson at 10:30, you do not have to follow this as a timetable. You can spend more time on any activity you wish and can move them around the day as you wish. I have simply used the normal timetable to share the activities. The online masterclasses alone provide enough work for the day if you would like to focus on these.

 

 

Online Masterclass 

 

You might choose to spend more time during the day on Online Masterclasses if you wish. 

 

Each masterclass has a video of the author, lasting 5-10 minutes, alongside a template for taking notes (which you may print, use online or imitate on paper for yourself), resources for thinking about and tasks to choose from, and and extract from the book to read and make use of.

 

Here are the master classes to choose from:

 

Derek Landy
Skulduggery Pleasant

How to make characters feel real 

 

Katherine Rundell
Skysteppers

Imagine a wild adventure

 

Sita Brahmachari
The River Whale

Inspirations for storytelling flow

 

Alex Bellos & Ben Lyttleton
Football Stories

Ready, set, write! On the pitch with Football School

 

Humza Arshad & Henry White
Little Badman

Don't judge a book by its cover

 

Zanib Mian
Planet Omar

Writing fantastic families

 

For younger children (but still relevant if you want to understand how authors think and work):

Books and the Real World

 

The live session aimed directly at your age group will be broadcast at 10:30 tomorrow. You are welcome to watch that and take part on Friday. You can find it here.

 

Words and Pictures: Bringing Books to Life

 

If you have younger siblings, enjoy learning to write for a younger audience or have fond memories of books when you were younger, you are welcome to watch today's live broadcast at 10:30, aimed at younger children but created by adult authors. Someone in this class might become a children's book writer one day. You can find it here.

 

Books that make you LOL!

 

Alternatively - or additionally - you might want to watch yesterday's live streamed Share a Story programme, which you can find here.

Create, Explore and Decorate

 

There are many resources you can choose from at the World Book Day website. Visit the resources pages that start here.

 

Perhaps create some bunting decorated in the style of a character, book or story-world. 

 

Or make paper chains that show links between books.

 

You could also make your own book, following these instructions.

 

There is also a World Book Day Big Bonanza Quiz you could take part in if you have people to share it with at home. 

 

If you would like a bookmark to commemorate World Book Day and keep your place, here is a template for one. If you would rather have a different design, use it as inspiration to create one of your own.   

World of Stories

 

Take the time to enjoy being read to.

 

Listen to free audiobooks here at World of Stories.

 

Share a Story

 

If you have a younger sibling at home, share some of these stories with them:

 

Share a Story

 

If you don't have someone to share a story with at home, have a look at a few examples. Could you create your own little video or sound recording for younger children at school?

Please ensure you have parental permission.

 

There is no new maths and English today, though you may take some time from other subjects to complete anything from earlier this week. There are a series of shorter lessons from Oak Academy for geography and PSHE. Please work through as many as you reasonably can. There will be time to do more of this next week (as well as to carry on with the music, French, RE, science and history). Please e-mail me your work as there will not be new DB Primary forums for these,

 

Please use this time to sign in on the register, to spend some time reading and recording on DB Primary.

Please continue with your planning and starting to draft your biography on Charles Darwin. You will need to conduct your own research (visiting sites and taking notes) as part of the planning stage. Please do not tell me you have finished, as the work involved in these videos lasts a lot longer than the videos themselves and the links I have given you require a lot of reading and note taking. This work should last at least until tomorrow.

 

Research on Charles Darwin

 

Use this BBC link for more information on Charles Darwin. Make sure you are taking plenty of notes and 'getting to know' Darwin better, as I have left out a couple of Oak Academy lessons that would have done this more.

 

These links should also be visited:

Please notes that Zoom lessons will resume tomorrow - on Tuesday 23rd February - in their normal format. Today, please work on the Oak National Academy assignments below. I will be available throughout the day on DB Primary.

 

NB Our Safer Internet Day was affected by difficulties with Zoom before half term. We will have a session later this term to cover this.

 

Please use this time to sign in on the register, to spend some time reading and recording on DB Primary.

 

Use any extra time to catch up with work not yet completed.

 

 

 

Maths

 

L.O. to describe positions on a coordinate grid

 

1) Please watch and take notes on the video lesson here: 

Oak National Academy 

Coordinates and Shape - Lesson 1 - Describing Co-ordinate positions on a grid.

 

2) Please choose a follow-up task depending on your confidence.

 

Trickier: Begin to work through Section S (starting on S.1 leading on to S.5) on IXL. Alternatively you can choose to work on the questions on this page (requires printing).

 

Trickier is the starting point. However, if you feel you need support with this, please work here: Tricky - J.1 and then J.2.

 

If you are confident with co-ordinates, you may try Trickiest: Please complete the questions on the four quadrants found here (requires printing).

 

 

English

 

L.O. to plan and draft a biography

 

This is the work that comes at the end of the Oak Academy unit on biographies. You may wish to look at the previous lessons (four of which were set as work last half term) before starting this, but you do not have to. To write your biographies, please use the following lessons. This will be the basis of our work for the next few days. You will not be able to complete these in a single day.

 

Oak National Academy Biographies Lesson 8 - To plan a biography.

 

Lesson 9 - To write a biography (part 1).

 

Lesson 10 - To write a biography (part 2).

 

Research on Charles Darwin

 

Use this BBC link for more information on Charles Darwin.

 

 

Science

 

Please work on the following Oak Academy Science lessons (if you have not completed the previous lessons, please do so first).

 

I do not expect both lessons to be completed today. Each video is about half an hour long which, if used properly, should take an hour to watch, pause and respond to. However, I know some children have worked on the first lesson already.

 

Lime Lesson 6 - Oak Academy Lesson 4: How do we see light?

 

Lime Lesson 7 - Oak Academy Lesson 5: Where do different colours come from?

History

 

Please work on the next video lessons on the Shang Dynasty. I have placed two lessons here as they are slightly shorter than other subjects.

 

Lime Lesson 4

Oak National Academy 3 - What was life like for people in the Shang Dynasty?

 

Lime 

Lesson 5

Hinduism

 

1) Please make sure you have completed Lesson 1 (Karma and Moksha)

and

Lesson 2 (introduction to Hinduism) and submitted your work to DB Primary first, before moving on.

 

2) Please visit the Oak National Academy site for Hinduism in Year 6. It overlaps with our curriculum very well. Please start to work through the lessons. I don't expect you to do more than one lesson in a day, but you may go further if you choose to. Please record your notes and learning on DB Primary. I will create a forum for each lesson.

 

The BBC Bitesize alternative to Oak Academy covers less ground, is aimed at older children, but is still useful so I have included it here:

Facts About Hinduism

and

Introduction to Hinduism.

Please use Oak Academy if at all possible.

Shang Dynasty

 

1) Please make sure you have completed the first lesson on the Shang Dynasty and recorded your work on DB Primary. If you have already done this, please go to step 2.

 

The BBC videos can all be found in one place here.

 

2) Please visit the Oak National Academy for a series of ten lessons on the Shang. If you cannot access this, please go to step 3.

 

3) Please visit BBC Bitesize for their section on the Shang Dynasty. You will already have watched the videos if you have completed the first lesson (as I have placed copies of these on the Lime Class website).

 

Now please work your way through the activities available through the nine links at the bottom of the page. This work is expected to take longer than one lesson. There will be a DB Primary forum to record notes and progress on.

Biographies

 

You can find the contents page for the ten Oak Academy lessons on biographies here. You may move through them at your own pace. I will create DB Primary forums for each lesson. The expectation is that you complete one per day - when you do not have a video or Zoom lesson - but you can do more if you wish.

 

If you have already completed yesterday's lesson, please work on Oak Academy Lesson 2 - To investigate Greek and Latin etymology.

 

Yesterday I posted this link: 

BBC Bitesize -

Exploring Biographies

for children who have difficulties accessing Oak Academy. If you have completed this, there is nothing else on BBC Bitesize that is equivalent to Oak Academy's biography lessons. Therefore, you should work on How to create a character instead - which has a link to our other English work.

Please make sure you have completed the four previous lessons before doing this one. They can be found elsewhere on this timetable.

 

Lesson 5 in the sequence for Lime Class is Oak National Academy - Light Lesson 3 - What is Refraction and How Can We Use It?

Please note that this is not the same as the previous lesson, which focused on reflection and not refraction.

 

Please ensure you have completed and submitted your work for Lesson 3 for Lime Class, which is Light Lesson 1 on Oak Academy before doing this lesson, as well as Lesson for for Lime (which is linked to on Tuesday 19th).

 

As an alternative to Oak Academy - only for those who can't access it or for extra input - please use

BBC Bitesize - What is Reflection?

if you haven't already done it, followed by

BBC Bitesize - How Doe the Eye Detect Light?

This second link only takes you to a short video on how the eyes work. You will need to research this further, then write about it, drawing diagrams to explain the eye. These links will help:

BBC - How Do Human Eyes Work?

 

 

 

Please note that there is no ‘live’ remote learning on Thursdays as Mr. Oliver-Dean has to be available to assist with supervision of Keyworker children.

Optional Project Work for the Last Week of Remote Learning

 

See examples of the websites we create here.

 

Choices for the last week of remote learning

 

Please work on the maths throughout the week. For other subjects you may choose whether to work on the lessons on Oak National Academy, BBC Bitesize and Code.org or to work on the project below. You may also choose to do a mix of project work and subject work to give you more variety. Ordinary lessons can be found on the daily schedule below.

 

Video and Online Lessons

 

If you choose to work on the lessons provided for this week, please follow the daily links. This includes work introduced last week.

 

Project – Website

 

If you wish to follow a project this week, rather than the individual lessons, please still complete the maths but spend your time researching and creating content for a website. Please note that you should have permission at home to set up a free website, which will require an e-mail address. Your DB Primary e-mail address will not work for this as it will not allow messages from outside the school.

 

Please choose one of themes given below (which fit in with our class focus) or choose a theme of your own that you feel you can write a lot about. A few weeks ago children in our class created websites about aeroplanes and an invented species of animal. Visit these sites to see how they have been laid out and what is possible. These sites were created using Wix and Site 123. I suggest you use one of these website builders as children in our class have already used them. However, there are many other free providers out there to consider. IMPORTANT – Do not share any personal and identifying information on your website.

 

Follow these steps:

 

  1. Research your topic. Even if it is a topic you already know about, please spend some time finding out about it and take a note of your references. This means keeping a record of where you find information out. A good website will mention its sources (where it gets its information from) and link to those sources.
  2. Take plenty of notes and start to map out how you would like your website to look. What pages will it have? How will they link to each other? It is a good idea to do this on paper, drawing the connections between pages as a map.
  3. Collect any assets you want to use – such as pictures – that you want to put in your website. Use sensible file names for pictures so that you can easily find them later.
  4. Start to design the layout of your website, creating pages which might at first be blank, ready to fill with information.
  5. Design the appearance of your webpages. How will they look? How will you grab and keep the attention of visitors to your site?
  6. Start to put content in, including plenty of writing. You may do this project instead of English and other subjects except for maths, so please make sure there is plenty of accurate, good quality writing there.

 

Themes

 

Our class focus over the next few months will return to our planned theme for the year – The Elements. We will now use The Elements: Air and Water as our inspiration. You may choose one of the projects below, but can also choose a topic of your own, if you feel you can write well and it inspires you.

 

I will be adding links to the suggested projects during the week, once I know what children are planning to do. Please let me know on Monday if you choose to do one of the suggested projects or one of your own. If children plan to do my suggested ones, I will add resources to help you from Tuesday. On Monday please do your own research and planning.

 

Project Theme 1:

 

Science – The Elements

Discover the amazing world of the elements. Find out more about the periodic table. Explain some of the most common and most interesting elements that make up our universe. Choose a page for a few different elements to explore their properties. Why do we need hydrogen, oxygen and carbon? Why are some elements so deadly?

 

Project Theme 2:

 

Air – Flight

Discover the world of flight. What is flight? How do things fly? What things – natural and human-made – fly? You could be creative here. You can look at birds and insects, planes and rockets, or you could look at weapons and sports equipment that travels through the air (how do footballers bend a free kick or corner?), or you could think of the moments a dancer spends off the ground, feeling like they are flying. What does an understanding of flight do for us? How does it transform our world.

 

Project Theme 3:

 

Water

Follow the journey of a drop of water as it passes around the world, having been here since not long after our planet was born. Why is water so essential? What makes it so unusual? How does freezing and boiling make water special? Why are we looking for water on the Moon and on other worlds? What is water made up of and how does it behave? Alternatively, you could look at how things move in water, how they swim or are moved by propellers, paddles or oars. Most of the surface of our planet is water.

 

If any of these three themes appeal to you, think about them today. Make notes about them. Think about what your website might include and let me know.

Remote Learning - Monday 4th January 2021

 

Happy New Year Lime Class! I hope you had an enjoyable and safe Christmas. Welcome back to Lime, from a distance. Though times are hard at the moment, this new year brings a lot of hope and promise. We will see things through. Together we will move on and things will get better.

 

For today, please follow the remote learning tasks shown below (under the heading October 2020). This is the same as for children who have had to self-isolate during the Autumn term and fits in with our school work.

 

I will be involved in several meetings during Monday, so I won't be available throughout the day, but please visit DB Primary to register when you can during the day. Because this is a Remote Learning day, parents may use my school e-mail address to contact me about teaching and learning. Please bear in mind that I won't be able to respond to DB Primary or e-mails until later in the day.

 

Should there be any further closure of the school or bubble, new remote learning will appear here and the work below will be reserved for children who are self-isolating.

The resource below are archived from the previous school year. There will be kept here while Covid-19 is in circulation in case they are useful in the current school year. It is possible I will link to these resources for children who have to self-isolate and/or for any possible school or bubble closures.

Please visit our VE Day pages for activities and lessons

for Thursday 7th May, in preparation for the VE Day 75th

anniversary celebrations on Friday 8th May 2020.

Accessing DB Primary

 

I will use DB Primary a lot. It gives us a chance to work together, share ideas and communicate. You can visit DB Primary here:

DB Primary Link

We have a brand new home page to work on. What should we put on it? You can have a say on how this website (and the school website) is developed while we are remotely learning? 

 

In addition to the Lime Class homepage, there is also a new community called 'Remote Learning at LHS and HBO'. Everyone across the Federation (all children at LHS and all children at our partner school, St. Mary's Hatfield Broad Oak) can access this page. There are a couple of forums and a blog there already for you to contribute to.
