Wednesday

Morning

 

Good morning everyone.

 

Please register at DB Primary.

 

Please visit the Leavers' Assembly website page for the script for today. The script contains information about today. So too does the DB Primary forum.

 

Leavers' Assembly

 

The Leavers' Assembly Zoom meeting will start at 13:00. We will only use the first ID and password. When the first meeting runs out of time, we will reuse the same meeting ID and password.

Wednesday 15th July - Leavers' Assembly

 

Morning

 

Please register at DB Primary.

 

Please visit the Leavers' Assembly website page for the script for today. The script contains information about today. So too does the DB Primary forum.

 

Leavers' Assembly

 

The Leavers' Assembly Zoom meeting will start at 13:00. There is a second meeting scheduled at 14:00 in case our first meeting is limited to 40 minutes (I expect it to be limited but it might not be).

Wednesday 8th July

 

Please be aware that I will be unavailable for a fair bit of the morning (from 10:00) due to taking part in training at school. This will apply to all the teachers.

 

1st Priority - Leavers Planning

 

Please make sure, over the next three days that you have full and varied memories recorded in the forum on DB Primary. If your memories only include funny moment, 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

 

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.

 

3rd Priority - China Project

 

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

 

Please visit this page for instructions (scroll down to the bottom).

 

5th Priority (Equal) - Maths and English

 

You may choose from the following work:

 

Maths on IXL 
1) Sequences: Section R, parts 1 to 5

2) Time: Section W, parts 1 to 10

 

Maths on BBC Bitesize

 

Maths on Oak National Academy

 

English on Oak National Academy (from Week 7)

 

English on BBC Bitesize

 

5th Priority (Equal) - Other Subjects

 

You may choose any work from BBC Bitesize as an alternative (to English and Maths) or in addition to the work above.

 

You may choose other work from Oak National Academy as an alternative (to English and Maths) or in addition to the work above. Other online lessons on Oak Academy cover PE, PSHE and Foundations subjects.

Wednesday 1st July - Remote and School Learning Timetable

 

Please note that this plan 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

 

Please read through your scripts for Let the Games Begin again. Become familiar with the play again.

 

If you can't find your script, one is available from the 'Files' section of the Lime Class Community on DB Primary. It is named 'Script Word Doc Let the Games Begin'.

 

We will be creating an audio play version of the performance. This means we will be 'voice actors'. Please don't expect to record your voices just yet, until I have made it clear how this is to be done (we will need individual, carefully labelled files following a naming rule). However, you can practise this if you choose.

 

10:30-11:00

Physical Break

 

At home, please take part in some physical activity during this time. There are suggestions in the PE section of the Remote Learning page.

 

11:00-12:15

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.

 

12:15-13:15

Lunch

 

 

 

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.

 

13:25-14:20

Session 3: Art Work

 

Let the Games Begin

 

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 3: Identifying Features' on Oak National Academy. This comes from Wednesday of Week 3 on the Year 6 schedule. Where possible, we will be using Oak Academy in school. However, please be aware that it has worked on and off at school due to a network issue, so we have used BBC Bitesize so far this week. 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 4: Using Adjectives for More Descriptive Writing. 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. 

 

10:30-11:00

Physical Break

 

If you are at home, please take part in an exercise session of some sort. We have been doing whole Joe Wicks sessions at school. There are other ideas on the PE page.

 

11:00-11:15

Social Break at School

 

If you were at school, there would be a social break session here. If children request it with a message close to this time, I will open the social forum for you to virtually meet.

 

11:15-12:15

Session 2 - Maths

 

If you are part of Bubble A working at home, please continue to focus on section O, on ratio, from IXL Year 6. If you have completed a section, please move on to the next one. Because you are working at home now, if you find yourself with a smart score constantly going up and down, you might choose to move on and come back to this work when I am teaching you in school. You can also e-mail me or use your own forum to request help.

 

If you are at home and in Bubble B, please work on either maths from the remote learning timetable from before half term (see the remote learning homepage) or work on BBC Bitesize maths. Please don't work on section O, as that will make it harder to give you teaching input when you are in school (as everyone will be working on something different). We will be working on O tomorrow and on Friday in school.

 

Please record your progress, saying what you have done, on your new named forum topic on DB Primary.

L.O. to interpret and create maps of different scales

 

Please visit the 'Mapping China' page on the Lime Class website. On this page you will find a blank template map and links to mapping resources to help you become familiar with the geography of China.

 

There is also a list of tasks that you can choose to do. Please do as much as you can reasonably produce today - in this session and the second afternoon session. There will be more time for you to work on this in the future as well.

 

Out of the list of tasks, please make sure you do Task 1. Other than that, you may choose how many tasks and in which order you do them. It is better to spend more time doing fewer tasks well than doing all tasks quickly.

 

Ideally you will draw at least one of the maps - if not all - but you may also write directly on your maps on a computer or other device. Please don't copy and paste maps.

 

This work will form part of your booklet on China.

Wednesday 20th May

 

PLEASE NOTE: I have not added to the daily plan in the usual way for today. I probably will not be able to for tomorrow and possibly Friday. This 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 wasn't able to open the afternoon register yesterday as I was in a meeting that took place through the morning, over lunch time and into the afternoon. I will aim to open the registers today again, but might not be able to open the afternoon one.

 

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):

 

BBC Bitesize - Online Lessons

Virtual Register

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.

L.O. to review spelling, punctuation, grammar and vocabulary

 

PLEASE NOTE: As I need to work at home rather than at school this morning, I won't be able to create any video lessons yet. I need to facilities at school to do this.

 

Please visit SPaG.com. I placed your usernames and passwords in DB Primary - please visit the forum for this lesson. Because DB Primary is not accessible to the public and because there is no communication on SPaG.com (no social networking aspect), all your usernames and passwords are visible as they would be in the class. 

 

When at SPaG.com, please work on 'Grammar Year 5 (C)' if you are one of the 18 children who has completed both A and B. Work on 'Grammar Year 5 (B)' if you haven't yet. Otherwise, if you are one of the 9 children who haven't started yet, please start with 'A'.  Links are available to the right for teaching resources. This work reviews content that has been covered to some degree in the past but will benefit from revision and looking at in more depth.

 

There are videos to help with Task A and Task B on the right. .

 

If you finish this task within an hour, please review it. Please focus on questions you didn't get right first time. If you can see what you got wrong, please explain your error on the DB Primary forum. If not, pick one or two questions to ask for help with - from me and from you classmates - on the forum. If you feel you can, try to help others as well. If there is nothing left to do on the forum, please look at the other tasks on SPaG.com, ones that were placed there before Easter.

Maths - Perimeter, Area and Volume

 

L.O. 1) to calculate the perimeter of polygons
L.O. 2) to calculate the area of rectilinear shapes
L.O. 3) to calculate the area of triangles
L.O. 4) to calculate the area and perimeter of other polygons
L.O. 5) to solve area and perimeter problems
L.O. 6) to calculate volume
L.O. 7) to calculate properties of circles

 

Please visit the IXL Teaching Page link to the right in order to follow the sequence of lessons. Work your way through the learning objectives in order. For each objective there is a separate page. There are also some teaching videos to support you there. I add more videos from time to time and have made some individual teaching videos for feedback as well. For each objective there is guidance for where to find support work and enrichment work if you find the standard task too complex or too straightforward.

 

If you find 'Trickiest' hard, do 'Tricky' rather than other targets. If you still find you can't make progress, ask for my help (you may do other IXL tasks while you wait for my help).

Music

You have a choice of activities depending on what resources you have at home and whether something is set up for you by now.

 

1) If you can, please visit Yumu, an online resource we are using for music during the lockdown. This is the best option for developing your musical skills and understanding and should be your first choice.

 

There is an assignment waiting for you there under the theme, 'Plastic'. To log in, check your DB Primary e-mails for a welcome letter that will explain more. I will send these out just before the lesson, starting with children who are currently online.

 

However, if you find it hard to access this, or if you want to add to it with more music, you can share your music time with... 

 

2) Visit Edith's Wartime Scrapbook forum. Spend time joining in with the songs, listening, singing, even recording yourself if you are able to. Contribute to the forum discussion about the songs.

 

...and/or...

 

3) Write new verses for a song or songs of your choice from Edith's Wartime Scrapbook. The words can be on one of two themes. They should either fit in with the Second World War, telling the story of the experience of people who lived through it. Alternatively, the words could be used to tell the story of Covid-19 and the lockdown. Please add your words to the forum relating to the song. Aim to make your new lyrics 'scan' (fit in as well as possible).

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.

L.O. - General comprehension learning objectives.

 

PLEASE NOTE - This Wednesday I have set one more reading comprehension task instead of SPaG. This is because this reading task will reach the end of The Lion and The Unicorn and it works better to do this on consecutive days (days that follow one another). We will also be going 'off curriculum' tomorrow to give us time to work on VE Day and Friday is a bank holiday.

 

Please complete Task 8 of The Lion and the Unicorn. 

 

If you haven't already completed Tasks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 please start there instead. If you haven't done these so far, I don't expect you to catch up, but it is better to start from the beginning.

 

You can find the text and the questions on this website (link to the right) and also on the DB Primary Lime Class forums. Please post your answers on the forum if you are able to do so (there are other options for completing your work listed there as well).

Because DB Primary is not accessible to the public and because there is no communication on SPaG.com (no social networking aspect), all your usernames and passwords are visible as they would be in the class. 

 

When at SPaG.com, please work on 'Grammar Year 5 (B)' if you are one of the 19 children who finished 'Grammar Year 5 (A)' last week. Otherwise, please start with 'A'.  Links are available to the right for teaching resources. This work reviews content that has been covered to some degree in the past but will benefit from revision and looking at in more depth.

 

There are videos to help with Task A on the right. I am creating video lessons for Task B at the moment. They will appear to the right when available. I will also be making videos to teach the parts of the tasks the majority of the class find harder - once enough people have completed the work. At the moment, 19 children have finished task A.

 

If you finish this task within an hour, please review it. Please focus on questions you didn't get right first time. If you can see what you got wrong, please explain your error on the DB Primary forum. If not, pick one or two questions to ask for help with - from me and from you classmates - on the forum. If you feel you can, try to help others as well. If there is nothing left to do on the forum, please look at the other tasks on SPaG.com, ones that were placed there before Easter.

L.O. to evaluate and solve variable expressions and equations (algebra)

 

Please note - I had initially planned to give you text book based work for today. I haven't for two reasons. Firstly, the scanning hasn't worked very well! Secondly, IXL seems to be effective. I am starting to build up teaching resources to help you, which will be harder with book work. Also, it is much harder to give you feedback and help with textbook based work.

 

If you have completed work from 'LO to write variable expressions', please move on to the new work, 'LO to evaluate and solve variable expressions and equations'. Watch my teaching videos to help you. New ones should be available by 11:00.

 

Please visit the IXL teaching page on this website (see the link to the right). From there, choose the appropriate task. These are given as 'Trickier' first, followed by 'Tricky' and 'Trickiest'. Try 'Trickier'. If you feel you need support, move on to 'Tricky'. If you master 'Trickier', explore 'Trickiest'. You will need to look at the examples to learn about this.

 

Please note that this is a new page, with new tasks. If you need to older tasks, either visit Tuesday's lesson links or navigate back one page from the new link.

 

If you find 'Trickier' hard, do 'Tricky' rather than other IXL tasks. If you still find you can't make progress, ask for my help (you may do other IXL tasks while you wait for my help).
