Thursday

Thank you to everyone for their contributions to yesterday's Leavers' Assembly. I am in the process of putting the video together for this. I can hear that the sound at home - especially on the songs - was very distorted. That should be fixable next week. It was due to the speakers being too close to the laptop in the hall that had the microphone turned on. We will move the speakers further next week and probably not use the boom microphones as this increased the volume too much.

 

1st Priority - Leavers Planning (for anyone in Bubble A who want to add to memories or any one from Bubble B who wanted to add something from yesterday)

 

Please make sure, that you have full and varied memories recorded in the forum on DB Primary. If your memories only include funny moments, please take the time to think carefully about other memories too. You should write a substantial amount. We won't be able to use all of this in the assembly itself, but your classmates will be able to read them and share the memories with you.

 

Have a look at what has already been posted. The longer, more detailed memories are an example of what you should do. If you have done this already, thank you. You may either continue to other work or add to the discussion more. If you haven't yet done this, it should become your main priority. However, you may spread this work over the next three days.

 

2nd Priority - Let the Games Begin Recordings (Optional)

 

Please visit this page for instructions.

 

As discussed in class, if you have the facilities at home*, please record your voices performing the parts that you have chosen on the survey.

 

1) You must use the new numbered script that was posted last Wednesday.

2) You must record exactly as described on the planning webpage, otherwise I will not be able to use the recording.

 

Unfortunately the voice recording in DB Primary does not seem to allow you to save files the way we need to save them, therefore it cannot be used. Most devices will have a recording app or programme with which you can save a file and name it using the naming system.

 

You can use this site to record your voice: https://online-voice-recorder.com/

 

3rd Priority - China Project (Optional)

 

Except for Bubble B, who will have a little bit of time tomorrow and on Friday, work for the China Project must be completed at home now. You may take a considerable amount of time from each day to work on this now. Please look at the afternoon session plans of the timetables from previous weeks (lower down on this page) for links and instructions. Children who have been in school have had the opportunity to collect paper and card to help with presentation. Please look at this page for examples of China Project work in progress. If you would like me to add your pages to this gallery, please send them to me or post them on your forum and e-mail me to let me know they are there.

 

4th Priority - Let the Games Begin Artwork (Optional)

Thursday 2nd July - Remote and School Learning Timetable

 

Please note that this plan (as for yesterday's) has changed a lot from previous ones.

 

As we are nearing the end of the term, and as our timetable has changed for the last two weeks so that each bubble is in on a Wednesday, we will need to focus more on the Leavers' Assembly now. 

 

This means it is important to cover quite a lot at home as well as school. Our most important targets:

 

1) Prepare and create sound recordings of performances of Let the Games Begin.

2) Prepare content (our script) for the Leavers' Assembly.

3) Prepare art work (optional) to use 

4) Continue and complete our China project, mostly at home now (though it can be assembled at school).

5) Choose maths and English work to do if you wish to keep it 'ticking over' from IXL and from BBC Bitesize and the Oak National Academy. We have spent a lot of time catching up and ensuring coverage of areas not previously covered so we can have more flexibility now.

 

9:00-9:15

Register and Reading

 

Please register and read your own book until 9:15. Please record how much you are reading on the DB Primary forum.

 

9:15-10:30

Session 1 - English - Let the Games Begin

 

At school, we will work on Let the Games Begin.

 

At home, you may start to record if you have the facilities to do so and if you feel you understand what is required. YOU MUST use the new numbered script. The script and instructions can be found on this page.

 

At home, alternatively, you may follow other English work (please see the top of this page for suggestions).

 

10:30-11:00

Physical Break at School

 

At school, please take part in the physical activity session, which could be Joe Wicks, another video-led activity or a teacher-led session. At home, please take part in some physical activity.

 

11:00-11:15

Social Break at School

 

There will be time to socialise with friends, from a 2m distance, in school. If we are inside, the social forum will also be opened on DB Primary so that chat can involve those not in school at the time. This is not guaranteed to be opened.

 

11:05-12:15

Session 2 - Maths and/or English

 

We are reducing the required maths and English to allow time for other work leading up to the end of the year. Maths and English have been heavily supported throughout school closure and reopening. You may choose to cover either or both here and may choose from:

 

IXL work
BBC Bitesize (see the maths and English links on the remote learning page)
Oak National Academy

 

For English, you may also choose to spend time over the next few days, working on the current 500 word story competition. This is optional. If you would like me to help edit and give you feedback on your work, please submit it to me digitally (not as a hand-written piece of work) by e-mail or through the forums. You can find the 500 word story competition information here.

 

12:15-12:45

Physical Activity

 

If you are at school, Mr. Turner will take you for an activity.

 

12:45-13:15
Lunch

 

If you are at school, Mr. Oliver will supervise lunch, outside if the weather permits - at 2m distances from each other - or inside.

 

13:15-13:25

Register and Reading

 

Please register and read your own book until 9:15. Please record how much you are reading on the DB Primary forum.

 

13:30-14:00

Session 3: KAS Activities (school) / China Project (home) / Let the Games Begin Art

 

KAS will lead activities at school in this session. 

 

Let the Games Begin Art (optional)

 

To accompany our audio play, it would be good to have still images to create a video version with. Please create still images of different scenes within the play.

 

You may choose how to do this, including the art materials, pencils, paints or other media that you use. However, the image must be landscape. This means a sheet of paper must be turned on its side and horizontal. This is to more closely match the shape of a screen. You may use either A4 or A5 (you could also use A3 but this would take a long time). When photographed, the size won't matter as much as the shape.

 

If we are to use these, we will need a wide range of scenes covering the whole story. I am not yet telling children which scenes to do, but will see what response I get to work out if this will be possible.

 

 

14:00-15:15

 

Session 4: China Project 

 

Please continue to work on your China project, at home or at school.

 

We have only a little time left to create our finished booklets. For children coming in to school we will seek to put together the materials for our booklets next week. There will be materials available in school for saddle stitching (to bind a book) and for mounting your work in order to present it well. However, everything else from now on will need to be done at home. Any materials to go in your booklet will need to be brought in to put together. I can give you paper to take home if you are in school.

 

Please see last Thursday's plan in order to look at the links I have given you before. Alternatively, you can find newly organised links here, to help you with your planning and independent work.

 

Tasks you must complete:

 

Shang Dynasty - The History of China

Geography - Mapping China

Geography and People - The Rivers of China

Art - Chinese dragon and symbolism

 

 

Tasks that are optional (choose from several of these, or your own further research):

Please note that these links aren't live yet. I aim to have them live by the end of Wednesday this week.

 

Chinese History since the Shang

Chinese Religion

The Flag of China

The Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year) and the Zodiac

Chinese Music

Chinese Art

Chinese Sport

Chinese Clothing and Fashion

The Great Wall of China

The Forbidden City

Cities of China

 

From previous plans:

 

For our China project, we will be creating a booklet, made up of pages no larger than A4. In school, we will create the pages individually, then bind them together towards the end of the project, which will give us flexibility in content, order and number of pages. You will have some freedom in what you put in there. Your booklet must have:

 

> At least one page exploring the history of the Shang Dynasty. You may do significantly more than this.

> At least one page showing the geography of China - including a map showing the border, the two major rivers and some major cities. You may do significantly more than this.

> At least one page describing human-made buildings and/or cities in China. This could include the Great Wall.

> Several pages exploring the culture, history and geography of China in other areas, including those we have been learning about and those which you have researched yourself.

 

For children coming in to school, you may combine work from home with work in school, provided the work from home can be added to a book no larger than A4. Written work in school (and where possible at home too) should first be drafted on DB Primary, so that I can mark it and give feedback if necessary. It should then be written up by hand to a high standard. Images created in school will need to be hand drawn. 

 

A record of school-based work is included here for reference and for links:

 

1) An folk tale designed to be performed using Oracle Bone script (DB Primary). View the video here: 'How the Shang Dynasty invented writing'.

2) Individual cards showing the symbols you wish to use (on paper).

3) Research notes for all eight sections of the BBC Bitesize site on the Shang Dynasty (on DB Primary and notebooks if you wish). These can be found below.

4) At least one map of China from the list of choices on Wednesdays lesson (paper or computer).

5) A finished Chinese dragon drawing.

 

If you have all of these things, please return to the mapping task from Thursday. There are several other maps to create.

 

Shang Dynasty Links:

1) The Shang Dynasty 1600 BC - 1046 BC

2) What was it like to live in the Shang Dynasty? 

3) How did the Shang army win battles?

4) Who did the Shang people pray to?

5) What jobs did the Shang people do?

6) Who was Fu Hao?

7) What are oracle bones?

8) The Shang Dynasty Quiz

 

If you feel you have comprehensively covered this work, please research an area of Chinese tradition and culture that interests you. Tourist guides to China are useful sources of information, for example www.travelchina.com. You might want to research:

 

> music

> Chinese painting

> shadow puppets

 

If you feel you have done all that you can do with this work, please visit this page on the Lime Class website, where I have posted videos introducing China and videos about The Great Wall. Watch these videos, taking notes. How would you like to present the information you have been learning from these sites? What you have learned will form part of a booklet, using a mix of writing and images. At school, we will be creating a booklet big enough to hold A4 pages. It is up to you what format you make a booklet in at home.

 

You may also conduct your own research.

Session 1 - English

 

If your device allows you to, please take part in the 'Information Leaflet Lesson 4: Formality' on Oak National Academy. This comes from Thursday of Week 2 on the Year 6 schedule. Where possible, we will be using Oak Academy in school. However, please be aware that it is not working this week at school, so we will be using BBC Bitesize instead today. Please make notes and record what you have learned on your own DB Primary forum - there is a new forum topic for each child in the class on which you should record your work.

 

As an alternative to Oak Academy, please take part in a lesson on BBC Bitesize (see the 'English' link lower on the remote learning home page). If possible, please work on Lesson 6: Commas, Brackets and Dashes. This is the next lesson following on from the ones we have done in school. However, if you have followed a different pattern at home, that is fine. In this case, work on the first lesson on my list that you have not yet done.

Break at School

 

There will be time to socialise with friends, from a 2m distance, in school. If we are inside, the social forum will also be opened on DB Primary so that chat can involve those not in school at the time. This is not guaranteed to be opened.

Thursday 21st May

 

PLEASE NOTE: Please see the notes on yesterday's timetable for planning. I will not be adding to the daily plan in the usual way today. However, I hope to start catching up on some with some feedback on the forums, as I haven't been able to do this for several days. If there is any work you want feedback more on, please let me know and I will try to prioritise it. 

 

The change of work is because most of my time is being used for planning and organisation in the school, which has to take precedent (come first) at the moment. It is a complex job and takes a lot of work - including practical work in the school.

 

I apologise that this means those of you who are so good at working on the new daily plans won't be able to have something new. I have been so impressed with the way you work every day, when you can, keeping a routine. I also apologise for not being able to give you much feedback recently. It is unavoidable at present.

 

Registers

 

I was able to open both registers yesterday and hope to do so again today.

 

What work should I do?

 

1) Please go back through the daily timetables, focusing on the most recent ones. They have the objectives and links for the work we have done. Please work on tasks you have not yet done. Nearly every child in the class has tasks yet to be completed.

 

2) If you can't find tasks to do that you haven't already done - or if you are unsure what to do or want a different challenge - please visit this site for more work, choosing what to do (or following the subjects that would have been set today):

Morning Registration

Please visit DB Primary. It is very important that you use DB Primary as much as possible.

If possible, please register by going to the forum on the Lime Class community. Make sure you are going to the new Lime Class community, not the old one. I will aim to open the register between 9:00 and 9:15 each day to allow a little bit of time for meeting your classmates and friends. This is not a 'mandatory' register (it is not something we are required to do), but it would be very helpful if you could register so that we can feel like we are a class. I will try to keep this time free as much as possible.

PSHE - Social Time

 

The Social Time forum will be open again this morning, after not using it last week due to VE Day.

 

This forum will be open for you to chat about anything you like, so long as it is true to our three rights, the secrets of success and our class and school values. The forum will be kept open from 9:15 until 11:00. I will monitor it but won't be actively on it. While it is open,. I will be developing feedback for the written work in English.

 

Remember, ask yourself three things before posting anything online, especially on this forum:

 

1) Is it useful?
2) Is it appropriate?
3) Is it kind?

 

If the answer to any of these questions is, 'No', don't post. Otherwise, get chatting.

 

I will review how well this worked. If it is well-used and the chat is useful to you, I will repeat it. If the standard of writing is high, I will be very positive about it. If the standard of writing is low, I will allow it for the sake of chat, but in limited doses.

PSHE - Social Time

 

Following the discussion on the Lime Class forums yesterday, I am going to try and see how extended time for 'chat' works for the class. Work on the forums has been excellent so far - the tone as been mature and respectful, care has been taken with the presentation and the content has been thoughtful.

 

This forum will be open for you to chat about anything you like, so long as it is true to our three rights, the secrets of success and our class and school values. The forum will be kept open from 9:15 until 11:00. I will monitor it but won't be actively on it. While it is open,. I will be developing feedback for the written work in English.

If you have completed these tasks, please either work on the extension tasks or - if you have done these or if they are too complex - please return to the diagnostic arena and your own personal recommendations. We will move onto a new unit of work next week.

 

Maths is a continuation of the algebra. Most children have not completed this yet and need a fair bit of time to do so. I am constantly creating and adding teaching videos to help - both for everyone and some individual ones too. If you are waiting for an individual lesson, please bear in mind that it takes a while.

 

For those of you who haven't worked on the algebra - thank you very much for your hard work elsewhere, but please could you focus on this, returning to other work only if you find both 'Trickier' and 'Tricky' to complex. 

 

I will work on more video lessons today. If there are any requests for help, please be specific.

L.O. to build a sense of threat and tension in a narrative

 

Last week you were asked to work towards Task 1 in writing composition (based on The Lion and the Unicorn). If you haven't done this yet, please visit Task 1 and start, recording your work in the forum.

 

If you have already done this, please respond to the AfL I give you following on from last week. This might involve moving on to Task 2 this afternoon, depending on the type of feedback I give you. I will use part of the morning to prepare individual work for you.

 

It is taking a while to create feedback for you on your written work. I am making videos because it is much more efficient to explain things out loud. However, after recording a 15 minute video, it then takes longer than that to process and then a little while to upload. During this time, I can't record more videos, unfortunately. Therefore, if I haven't yet given you feedback, please move on to Task 2.

 

You can find the task by following the link to the right. It is also referred to on the Lime Class forum. You will need to see the original story, which is also linked to on the right.

Please work towards Task 1 in writing composition based on the story The Lion and the Unicorn. This piece of work is planned for the next two days, with work you submit being looked at my me for development next week. For me to give you useful feedback, please submit your work word-processed, either as a Word document (or similar), in the body of an e-mail or on the forum. If you can only hand write the work, that is absolutely fine. Please just be aware that I will find it harder to give you feedback.
