Here is a fun English activity for you; can you solve this crossword? When you have completed it, check the yellow boxes for the letters to create a secret hidden word and write a definition for it. Good luck!

Here is another English activity for you; can you match each prefix to a root word to create a verb? Your challenge then is to use these words in a sentence.
Here is a new Roman numerals activity for you to try. Can you write the number of olives in each vase using Roman numerals?
One of our geography topics this year has been Italy. Can you independently research a famous Italian landmark, which we can compare to the English landmark Stonehenge?

When you have chosen a famous Italian landmark, find out the following facts:

* Where in Italy is it? You could locate it on a sketch map.

* How old is it?

* Why was it built? Who built it?

* Any special features that it has.

You can use the attached worksheet to help you decide how to present your work. Please remember that there is no need to print anything, you can write up your landmark information on a sheet of paper.
I am working within school today, so unfortunately I won't be able to answer messages on Dojo until later this evening. I hope that you all have a great day; I can't wait to get home and see what amazing work and messages you have sent me!

For our English activity today, we are going to revisit homophones. Do you remember how homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings? They also have different spellings.

I would like you to firstly remind yourself of some homophones by watching this BBC Bitesize video clip:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqhpk2p/articles/zc84cwx

Now, can you try the activities that I have included in this PDF file?

Your words should create a picture in your reader's mind. The purpose of a narrative is to entertain the reader, so use interesting vocabulary to make it fun and exciting to read!

Please remember that you don't need to print anything off, just write your vocabulary list and paragraphs on a sheet of paper.

Here are the answers for yesterday's comprehension task:

Monday 11.05.20

Good morning Sycamores!

The White Rose maths website has now limited their available content; the videos are still accessible but the worksheets have been removed.

W/C Monday 27.04.20

Hello Sycamores!

I hope you had a lovely weekend in the beautiful sunshine. This week our learning is going to be a little bit different because I will be working within school in The Nest. Instead of giving you daily tasks, I am going to suggest what you can do for the whole week now.

I will still be checking Dojo every day but during school hours I won’t be able to message you.

Please keep sending me all of your wonderful updates; I love to see what work you are doing and how you are keeping busy while we are away from school. As usual, a round-up of your photos will be put in the school newsletter at the end of each week (please let me know if would rather not share).

I miss you all very much and can’t wait for the day when we are back at school. I’m sure I will be amazed by how much you have all grown!

Mrs Parker x




1. White Rose maths.

Please continue to try and do a maths lesson each day on the White Rose website. We are on week 2 this week but if you have missed any you can go back to complete them. The links for the website are here:

Year 4 Sycamores: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

Year 5 Sycamores: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

 

2. English.

This term your science topic is space and this Friday is international space day; how could our writing theme for the week be anything but space?!

I would like you to write a fictional diary from the perspective of an astronaut. Here is a file with a picture prompt and a challenge, to help get you started.

Can you then write a thrilling, fictional diary, in the first person, which is truly out of this world? Try and write a diary entry each day for your astronaut; day 1 could be when their rocket launches, day 2 their journey to the moon, day 3 when they land on the moon, day 4 when they explore the lunar (moon) surface and day 5 when they finally leave and return to Earth. Include lots of detail in your writing and use your five senses to help you. Imagine what your astronaut can see, hear, touch, taste and smell.


3. Geography.

Last term, our topic was Italy but we didn’t have the chance to explore all of the stunning physical features of the Italian landscape. This week I’m going to ask you to explore and research them as a project.

Use our knowledge organiser as a starting point and then create your own project about the physical geography of Italy; the physical geography is in a yellow box on the left hand side of our knowledge organiser. Be imaginative about how you present your work; you could make it into a leaflet, booklet, poster or powerpoint presentation. You can include text boxes, diagrams and sketch pictures in your project. I would love to share your work with everyone on Class Dojo and on the school website. You can download a copy of our knowledge organiser from the school website. here is a link:

https://www.toynton-all-saints.lincs.sch.uk/knowledge-organisers-2/


4. Times Tables.

Times tables are so important for our maths; if we don’t know our times tables inside-out and back-to-front, then we can sometimes find maths trickier. If you regularly use Times Tables Rockstars to practise, then you will be a times tables ninja warrior by the end of this week!


5. Reading.

Read and then tell me about an amazing book you have read. Did you know that the more you read, the easier you will find it to think up ideas for writing your own stories? If you are feeling a bit stuck writing this week’s diary, why not have half an hour reading some books on myon.co.uk to help you magpie some ideas?

6. Art.

Our next history topic is ancient Greece; a lot of the ancient Greek art that has survived is pottery . Here is a file for you, which contains some photographs of ancient Greek pottery to inspire you.

 

9. Get active.

Can you share with me how you are keeping active? This could be a photo of you kicking a football, a written description of a walk you have taken or a list of instructions for a new sport.

 

Have fun and stay safe!

Friday 24.04.20

Good Morning Sycamores!

Well done for completing the first week of our brand new term of home learning. I have been so impressed by the work that you have sent me this week! Next week, I will be working in school in The Nest, so your learning will be a little bit different; I will give you a list of activities, for the whole week, on Monday.

For your maths activity today, please can you try lessons 4 and 5, of week 1, on the White Rose website?

Here is the link for year 4:
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

Here is the link for year 5:
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

Today, for English can you please finish off your story? When it's all finished, you can purple polish it; try to correct any spellings, improve your word choices and check your punctuation.

 

Here is an English comprehension task for you, as some of you won't need very long to purple polish and finish your narrative:

I have given you a bit more work today, so don't worry if you don't manage to finish it all. Remember that there is no need to print anything off, you can write your answers on a piece of paper.

 

Take care, stay safe and enjoy the sunshine!

Thursday 23.04.20

Good morning, I hope that you all had a good sleep and are ready to finish writing your story! Can you finish your story and include some direct speech in it, between two of your characters? Have a look at this fun video to remind yourself of how to use direct speech:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zvftsbk

Do you now remember our four golden rules for direct speech? The golden rules are:

1) New speaker, new line.
2) Always use inverted commas (bunny ears " ") to surround the speech.
3) Start the speech with a capital letter.
4) Always use punctuation, within the inverted commas, at the end of direct speech.


For your maths activity, please can you try lesson 3 of week 1 on the White Rose website?

Here is the link for year 4:

Wednesday 22.04.20

Good morning Sycamores!

Today, can you use your plan to start writing a narrative about Emily, the little girl who can control the weather? Try to write your first two paragraphs today, using the first two boxes from your plan. I would like you to write your story in the past tense and the third person. Remember that to write in the third person we use the pronouns 'he', 'she' or 'they', not the pronoun 'I'. Can you use a relative clause to give your reader extra information about Emily? Remember that a relative clause is introduced by a relative pronoun. The words 'that', 'which', 'who', 'whose', 'where' and 'when' are all relative pronouns.


Have a look at the following video clip:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zwwp8mn/articles/zsrt4qt


Don't rush your narrative, take your time. Think about how you want your reader to feel when they read your story. Do you remember when we wrote a fast-paced and exciting narrative, we achieved this by making our sentences short and 'pithy'? On the other hand, can you remember how, when we wanted to take the reader on a journey with us, we used lots of description and detail in every sentence? Decide which effect you want to have on your reader; do you want to write an action-packed adventure or a slower-paced story that gradually unfolds and reveals a magical mystery?



For your maths activity, please can you try lesson 2 of week 1 on the White Rose website?

Reading Corner.

 

Have you read a good book on myon.co.uk lately?

Let's share the best books we've found on myon.co.uk so far. I would love it if you could tell me the name of the book on myon.co.uk and why every Sycamore should read it!

 

 

 

Tuesday 21.04.20

 

Good morning Sycamores!

Thank you for sending me so many lovely messages yesterday. It was great to see photos of you being helpful at home and keeping active in the glorious sunshine.

Yesterday, your English activity was all about a little girl called Emily, who can control the weather. This week, we are going to write a narrative about Emily, written in the third person. Remember that to write in the third person we use the pronouns 'he', 'she' or 'they'. Today, as a first step to writing your narrative, I would like you to create a plan; you can use the plan in the file below. Please remember that you don't have to print it out, you can just write your plan on a piece of paper or in a spare page in your purple homework book. Remember that the more detail and effort you put into your plan, the easier it will be when you write your narrative!

Today, I would like you to try the home learning section on the White Rose maths website. Each day (except Friday) follows the same routine of a quiz, short video and a worksheet with answers. Why not give it a try today and see how you get on with it? If you have any questions or worries please let me know! Please could you try the learning for lesson 1 of week 1 on the website? Please let me know if you like it! Remember that you don't have to print anything off, you can write your answers on a piece of paper or in your purple homework book.

* How high up is your tree house?
* How big is your tree house, what rooms does it have?

Can you write a story about living in your tree house? What adventures do you have in your tree house? What interesting visitors do you have and what sort of weather do you have to cope with?

Wednesday 01.04.20

 

Good morning Sycamores! I hope that you all slept well and are ready for some more activities  :)

Well done if you have completed every page; if you have still got some pages to do, you can finish it whenever you have some spare time. Year 5, your English is a comprehension activity, which is contained in the word file below. There is no need to print the file out, you can read the text and write your answers down on a piece of paper.

 

Have a lovely day!

Day 8 of the Lego challenge: you are shipwrecked! Can you build a boat to get home safely?

Tuesday 31.03.20

 

Good morning Sycamores!

I hope that you all had a really good sleep and are ready to have another great day. What do you plan to do outside today? Are you going to play football, build a den or go for a walk? I am going to have another walk later this afternoon. Are any of you helping out with daily chores around the house? I love to hear about all your adventures, whilst we are all at home!

Thank you so much for sending me your beautiful work yesterday. I really enjoyed seeing your science experiments, castles and independent projects.

 

 

Here are your daily maths and English activities:

 

Year 5 Sycamores.

Please look at page 3 of your English booklet. Can you find and use the Spring suffixes?

 

Look at page 2 in your maths booklet. Can you break the code and then use inequality signs to compare the decimal numbers? Remember how we use inequality signs, 2 < 5 and 17 > 10. Compare digits in each place value column in order: ones, tenths, hundredths and lastly thousandths.

 

To help you with your maths today, here is a place value chart for you to look at. You don't need to print it off, it is just here to refresh your memory.

Build your amazing vehicle, then why not sketch and label it, while carefully thinking about the following:

* What is your vehicle used for?
* How many wheels does it have and why?
* How many passengers can your vehicle carry?
* What fuel does it use?

Can you write a poem about your truly terrific truck? You could use some powerful figurative language to paint powerful images in your reader's mind; try to include rhyme, repetition, alliteration, similes and metaphors.

Here is a list of educational and active websites for you to share and explore with your parents.

Please remember to stay safe online! Never talk to a stranger online or visit a website that your parents haven't checked first! If you see or hear anything that upsets you online please tell a grown up straight away.

Monday 30.03.20

 

Good morning Sycamores! I hope that you had a great weekend. Did you get outside in your garden to enjoy the sunshine? Do you remember our English text “Where My Wellies Take Me”, where Pippa wrote about her walk? This weekend, I went for a walk in the sunshine and tried to spot different animals, plants and interesting features. Later this week, I think that I will use these photos to write a narrative inspired by Pippa’s story. Can you do this too and ‘collect’ some interesting things on a walk? You could go for a walk in your garden and record your observations by writing down a description, making sketches or taking photos.

Here are your daily maths and English tasks:

 

Year 4 Sycamores.

Today, can you try page 3 in your maths activity booklet? Use your knowledge of times tables to hop through the Easter maze.
