Class 7

Monday 13th July 2020

 

Hello Class 7,

 

It is your final week of the school year this week and that means your final week of home learning. This week I’d like you to continue with your spellings, reading and TT Rockstars as normal. But literacy and numeracy this week is a booklet of tasks. This will be posted today for you to work through. Try your best to give each task a go and I hope you enjoy them. As for topic, there are some creative, making tasks to complete if you wish, again it would be wonderful to see your creations so don’t forget to send me photographs via Purple Mash email!

 

 I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of myself and your teachers for your continued support throughout this strange time these past few months. I want you to know that you’ve all done superbly with your efforts for the home learning and your hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed, it has been lovely seeing your photos and work you have sent in, you have done Burton Road Primary proud! I know it may have been difficult at times and testing for grown ups too, but you’ve smashed it, well done! I hope your motivation continues for the new school year.

 

This week you will receive your school reports and find out your new class and teacher…how exciting for you! Things may be a little different in September, when you return, with regards to routines etc, but worry not- we’re all in this together and we will support you and each other as best as we can. Our aim is for you to be safe and happy!

 

It has been an absolute pleasure to see what you’ve been up to and work alongside you for your final weeks of this year and I look forward to seeing you all safe and smiling in September for another fun, learning, action-packed year! Have a great Summer everyone! Stay safe and look after you and yours!

Take care and see you all very soon,

Hello Class 7!

 

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend and that you all remained to stay safe! I am not going to write as much for your homelearning introduction this week as I feel that you’re all ‘pros’ and know how it all works by now!

 

Everything remains just about the same - spellings, numeracy, literacy and topic.  There is a slight change this week with your literacy as I have set little SPAG tasks rather than bigger literacy tasks. There are three differentiated sheets on the PDF. Do all three if you wish, or the one that is the level most suited to you. You can tell the difference by looking at the star at the bottom of each sheet. I hope you enjoy the SPAG tasks as I know some of you were getting a little bored of the literacy now. 

 

Please continue your weekly reading as I know most of you have been doing and logging into accelerated reader too to complete a quiz and also don’t forget there is a TT rockstars battle for the week.

Please remember to share anything whether it is work related or not - if you wish of course- you know how I enjoy seeing what you’ve been up to!

If there is anything you require or need support with you know how to get in touch with me via purple mash email, please don’t hesitate!

 

A massive thank you to you all for your continued support, you’re all doing a smashing job!

Have a wonderful week everyone!

The weekly spellings will continue as normal and the spelling quiz will also be set for you on Purple Mash. Remember to talk about the meaning of each word! This is important so you know what they mean! I will set a ‘redo’ if you do not get more than 6/10 on Purple Mash. This is so you are confident with the spellings.

Don’t forget to continue using your creativity and also have a go at some of our topic menu of tasks. These compliment our topic well and are mostly creative tasks that you can have lots of fun with.  Remember- you’re not expected to complete ALL of the tasks, but it would be lovely to show off your creative skills! Be sure to continue to send me pictures of your work so I can continue post on our web page wall of fame!

Our work wall of fame has been bursting with super-duper work from you lovely lot, not just topic work either- send in some other interesting bits you have been doing at home! Keep it up! I always look forward to seeing what you’ve been up to!

Week 1's work wall of fame!

Week 1   1st June 2020

Hello Class 7. I hope you’ve enjoyed a beautiful, sunny past week, and hope you and your families are safe and well.

 

Home learning will continue as normal and updates will be on our web page, as you have used previously. As you may know Mrs France is pretty busy with teaching in school and so I have been given the job of making sure you’re still learning and keeping those minds busy. It may be a little different to what you have been used to, but not too much! I will make it easy enough for you to follow. I want you to understand that there is no right or wrong order in which you choose to do the work. Remember attempting work and trying your best is always appreciated no matter how much you do.

 

Work shall be posted weekly, keep an eye out on our web page and on Purple Mash.

 

I shall set a weekly spelling quiz for you to have a go at. I shall post a spelling list of 10 spellings on our web page for you to practise first and you may choose when you’re ready to take the spelling quiz on Purple Mash. Try and keep up with your spellings as best as you can. Also talk about the meaning of each word! This is important so you know what they mean!

Daily literacy and numeracy powerpoint will be posted weekly and this includes the learning tasks and any additional supporting resources too. Please try your best at having a go at these. 

 

Our new topic is The Vikings! It is such a wonderful topic and I hope you enjoy learning about it as much as I adore teaching it! There will be a lesson each week to read and understand on a powerpoint. There shall be a task after each powerpoint for you to complete. It would be great if you could use your creativity and present your task as you’d like. Some tasks I have added additional resources that may assist you in the task. In addition to the task after the powerpoint there is a menu of tasks relating to the Vikings topic. By all means have a go and choose any of the tasks you wish to do if they interest you.

Literacy week 1 

 

Day 1 – Listening to The Sword in the Stone and then reading a version in print. Answering questions on the text. Summarising characters and their relationships.    

 

Day 2 – Watching an adaptation of the same story. Writing a paragraph from given stimuli. Summarising and re-telling the story.

 

Day 3 – Listening to and reading ‘A Good Play’, a poem by RL Stevenson. Listening to some teaching on past and present tense and then completing given exercises.      

 

Day 4 – Listening to and reading ‘The Swing’ by RL Stevenson. Listening to teaching on the progressive form, then writing sentences using this. Writing creatively.

 

Day 5 – Reading Where Go the Boats by RL Stevenson. Learning about the perfect form from the teaching, and practising it. Choosing a favourite poem and memorising it.  

 

Please note the literacy work will say 'week 8 day 1 etc' this is the correct work for week 1.

Numeracy week 1   1.6.20

 

Day 1 – Read through the powerpoint on multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. If children can access this, they will hear the voice-over on the place value grid.  They use a place value grid as their model when multiplying and dividing.   

 

Day 2 – Children can work through the Learning Reminders to rehearse how a ‘function machine’ changes the input into an output. Drawing on the teaching from yesterday, they understand division as the inverse of multiplication.

 

Day 3 – Read through the powerpoint on telling the time on both analogue and digital clocks. If children can access the PowerPoint, they hear key points explained.  They practise recording analogue and digital times, first to five-minute intervals and then to one minute.

 

Day 4 – Children rehearse number bonds to 60 (25 + 35, 20 + 40, etc.), then focus on telling the time on both analogue and digital clocks to the next hour.  They practise this skill, then extend it using a problem-solving investigation.  

 

Day 5 – Children use their understanding of units of time (hours, minutes and seconds) to time events, then record the results in a bar chart. They also interpret bar charts of the same type.

 

Please note that the learning resources may say 'week 4 day 1, 2 etc' but theyre the correct resources for week 1.

Topic Week 1 

 

Please read through part 1 and part 2 of week 1's powerpoints. There is a task at the end of part 2's powerpoint. See if you can complete the timeline.

Monday 17th May

Welcome back to our final week of learning before the half term holiday. 

Literacy:

Spellings have been uploaded onto PurpleMash and this week I will be uploading a SPAG mat every day. These have a few short activities on them that you can either do by printing off the worksheet uploaded below or by writing out your answers on a piece of paper.

WRITING

This week for your writing activity I would like you to put together an historical report about the Anglo Saxons. Use everything that you have learnt and by all means do your own research. I suggest that you do a bit each day. You can include pictures/photographs and present it in any way you choose. You might want to pretend that you have gone back in time and write a diary extract or write it in the style of a newspaper report from the time. You may prefer to just write it as though you were creating an information text or leaflet about life in Anglo Saxon Times - the choice is yours.

 

Maths:

https://youtu.be/FCIeD7ynVAA

Today's lesson is actually a mix of art and maths. This is the link to a YouTube lesson about horizontal and vertical lines and introduces you to an artist called Piet Mondrian who uses these to create his art work.

(If any of you have concerns, the YouTube account that I am using has 2 step verification on it so should be secure.)

 

Topic:

I will not set anymore topic this week as the literacy work is both topic and literacy combined and today's maths lesson is also art.

Documents for Monday 18th May

Friday 15th May

Literacy

There are some new spellings on Purple mash and I've really enjoyed reading the work that you have done on the Great Barrier Reef and some of you have written letters to people in the future. Finish off any of these if you haven't managed tehm yet and would like to.

 

Maths

I have attached a Beat That. Remember, you have 90 seconds to try and complete them all or try to beat your time from 2 weeks ago if you did all of them in the time. Choose the colour you normally do or a different colour if you fancy the challenge.

 

Topic

Finish off any work that you haven't managed yet then enjoy your weekend.

Thursday 14th May

Literacy: 

Keep going with the writing tasks that I have set you already this week and there are new spellings on Purple Mash and a new worksheet for conjunctions is uploaded below.

 

Maths:

Have a bit of fun following the instructions of turn and direction to make your way safely across the ocean. You'll still need to remember what a right angle is!

 

Topic:

I have set you a Purple Mash science activity to describe how seeds are dispersed. We did learn about this in class, but you may well have forgotten. Three ways that seeds can be dispersed are by wind, water and animals. See if you can research and write about a seed that is dispersed by each of these methods and explain what dispersed means.

Beth's Anglo Saxon Wordsearch

Wednesday 13th May

Literacy:

I had a request for the Accelerated Reader website so here is the link that you need to access it.

 

https://ukhosted111.renlearn.co.uk/6710890/

 

I have uploaded some more work on conjunctions and there are spellings on Purple Mash.

I'm still receiving work about the Great Barrier Reef from you and it looks like you're all doing a superb job so keep on with that if you haven't finished it.

If you would like another literacy challenge then how about writing a letter to someone in the future describing what life has been like during lockdown. The good bits and the bad.

Maths: 

I have uploaded some work on parallel and perpendicular lines.

Parallel lines are like train tracks that will never meet and perpendicular lines cross at right angles.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zb6tyrd/articles/zp327hv

Check out this bbc bitesize explanation then complete the worksheet if you can.

Topic:

Continue doing your work on the Anglo Saxons.

Tuesday 12th May

Spellings set as usual on Purple Mash and I have uploaded another worksheet on conjunctions for you. Continue researching and writing a report on The Great Barrier Reef.

Maths

I have uploaded a worksheet on identifying angles greater and less than a right angle.

Monday 11th May

Welcome back to another week of home learning in Class 7. I hope that you have had a good weekend and enjoyed the lovely weather while it lasted.

Literacy

As usual, I have set spellings on Purple mash and below you will find some work on conjunctions and our writing task for this week which is another non-fiction task based on The Great Barrier Reef. I would encourage you to not only use the picture stimulus but to do some of your own research if you can into this real and yet magical place. You could may be even write about the problems that it is facing. You have a whole week to complete this task, so do a little bit every day if you can.

Numeracy

As I said last week, I will not be able to make videos of the maths for this week as it is my week to be teaching in school. I will be uploading work on angles and shapes, so today's lesson is on right angles. When we looked at this briefly in school, this seemed to be new to most of you so I hope that the PowerPoints and work make sense, but don't worry if you struggle, it will get covered again next year.

Topic

We will continue to look at the Anglo Saxons and this week we will be learning about what they believed and their religious celebrations.

 

Thursday 7th May

This is the last day that I will be providing work for this week as Friday 8th was supposed to be a bank holiday to celebrate VE Day's 75th anniversary. I have therefore included some VE day related activities if any of the children would like to make anything to help celebrate at home. These could be done in advance or on the day. 

Also, please keep sending me in your photos via Dojo messages of you with a message for the class on plain paper.

Literacy:

I have attached a PowerPoint on using inverted commas correctly. There are tasks built into the PowerPoint. Some of you are still finishing your waterfall stories so keep them coming in.

There is a daily spelling exercise set on Purple Mash.

Maths:

Here is the link to your final lesson on equivalent fractions. Well done for all your work so far.

I have attached the PowerPoint and worksheet below but as ever, they are not essential.

Topic:

There are still touch typing exercises to do on Purple Mash and as mentioned above I have uploaded some VE Day activities courtesy of Twinkl.

Wednesday 6th May

First of all, I would like to apologise again for having to cancel the much looked forward to Zoom meeting. I hope that we can find another way of all being in touch with each other soon, but until then keep up the amazing work that you have all been doing and it's great to see so many photos of your work on Dojos.

 

Literacy:

Keep on with those waterfall stories, the ones that I have seen have been good to read. Let your imaginations run away with you as to what might be behind the waterfall. I have attached the document below again so you don't have to scroll back for those of you who haven't managed it yet.

I have also attached lesson 3 on using a or an correctly. This lesson is looking at those tricky words which don't fit the rule so easily.

Spellings have been set on Purple Mash.

 

Maths:

https://youtu.be/Mo9SeI30ISA

Here is the link to lesson 3 on equivalent fractions. Hopefully there are no mistakes on the answers this lesson, but do let me know via Dojos if you have spotted any. The link to the PowerPoint and the worksheet is also below, but once again they are not essential to print out.

 

Spanish:

Madam Oliver did put some Spanish resources on this website at the beginning of lockdown, so please scroll down to find them if you haven't done so already. There are plenty of songs available on the internet to help you learn a bit more Spanish whilst we're off so have a search. Here is the link to just one of many.

ICT:

There are still touch typing exercises for you to do on Purple Mash. They will be on all week for you and you can always try out some of the other exercises by going to computing then 2touch type.

Tuesday 5th May

Literacy:

Keep going with the 'Behind the Waterfall' story writing that I set you yesterday and try to include some great characters and descriptive writing.

There is a PowerPoint for a second lesson on using a or an below to follow on from yesterday's task.

The daily spelling task is also set on Purple Mash.

 

Maths:

https://youtu.be/rBNAzH0UUaE

This is the link for the second lesson on equivalent fractions. Do the lesson from yesterday first if you didn't manage to get that one done. They'll make more sense if you do them in order.

The PowerPoint and worksheet are available below but they are not essential.

 

ICT:

I have set three touch typing tasks on Purple Mash. The children enjoyed doing this in our ICT lessons last term and it is a useful skill to have so they can practise them as much as they like this week.

Monday 4th May

Welcome back to another week of home learning. We are going to be continuing with fractions, revising some grammar and finding out some more about the Anglo Saxons amongst other things.

Literacy

Below is a link to our writing task this week. We are returning to story writing as you create an imaginary world where anything could happen.

Maths

https://youtu.be/WacizEjv4PY

This is the link to today's maths' lesson. It is on equivalent fractions. There is no worksheet needed for this lesson but the PowerPoint is below if you would prefer to use that rather than the video. It may be useful to print out the page with the fraction wall on it for future lessons, but not essential.

Anglo Saxons

There is a Twinkl PowerPoint below to help you learn a bit more about Anglo Saxon Culture. Historians have found a lot out about the Anglo Saxons from the artefacts that archeologists have found buried in the ground. This lesson you will get to see some of those artefacts and pretend to be an historian by trying to work out some information about each artefact.

Extra questions for fractions word problems for those that would like them.

Friday 1st May

Well we've made it to the month of May where usually there would be lots of May day celebrations going on around the country.

Topic/Literacy

Research a May Day tradition that happens in the United Kingdom. Draw a picture and/or write about it. For example morris dancers around the country would usually be up at sunrise to welcome in the first of May. There have been a lot of songs written about May day too. Maybe you can find a short video to watch or look at the PowerPoint below for ideas.

 

Maths

https://youtu.be/GCA4GNj2hcE

Follow the YouTube link above for today's lesson on fractions. This time you will be solving word problems using some of what you have already been learning about this week. Alternatively you can use the PowerPoint document below.

 

Golden Time

Do something fun!

Springvale Primary School in Penistone take over the airwaves at Penistone FM (you can listen online) at 1pm every Friday if you fancy a bit of a dance.

 

May Day and Fractions PowerPoints

Thursday 30th April

Literacy:

I have set you your daily spelling exercises on Purple Mash, but the grammar exercises don't seem to be working too well. Next week I will look at another way of setting you some short achievable grammar exercises.

Keep going with your Moon Landing writing or with writing out a recipe for your favourite meal. Remember that both of these can be done as tv shows if you wish to make a video and send me.

 

Maths:

https://youtu.be/Q1vvGzO2qpI

Here is the link to the YouTube video for Fractions lesson 3. I will put the link to the PowerPoint below if you have difficulty accessing YouTube. This is revision of lesson 2 giving you a chance to become experts at finding fractions before a more challenging word problems lesson tomorrow. If you haven't done lessons 1 and 2 yet, then it is best to try and do these lessons in order. Scroll down here on the website to find lesson 1 which is on Tuesday's work and lesson 2 which is on Wednesday's work.

 

Topic:

If you haven't had chance yet, then check out Pete McKee's Youtube lessons on drawing cartoon animals and people.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8f8ag58jDs

This is the link to his first lesson, cartoon workshop for beginners. There are now several other lessons online that you can do with him if you enjoy this one.

 

I have also set a science task on Purple Mash about the stages of a plant as it grows. I've given you a few days to get that done. Just do what you can because some of you are finding the YouTube lessons easier to access and some of you are finding PurpleMash easier to access. 

Fractions Lesson 3 PowerPoint

Terrific Topic

More fabulous fractions work from today.

Wednesday 29th April

Literacy:

There is a spelling and grammar exercise (I think that I slowed the timer down, but if it hasn't saved that way then don't worry if it's too quick) saved for you 2do on Purple Mash.

 

If you haven't yet done your Moon Landing news report, then you can just keep going with that. If you have, then how about writing a set of instructions for how to make your favourite meal. This could be in the form of a recipe, or if you enjoy making videos then you could pretend that you are on a cooking show and do a demonstration.

 

Maths:

It seems like yesterday's YouTube lesson was successful so here is the link to the second lesson on fractions.

https://youtu.be/7g_JwCC9tes

It's a bit trickier than the last lesson so you might need to keep pausing the video to check that you have understood. You still only need pen and paper, there are no worksheets.

I have also uploaded the PowerPoint which the video is based on in case you find it easier to do the lesson that way. The only audio explanations are on the video not on the PowerPoint.

 

ICT:

There is a simulation task saved on Purple Mash as one of you 2Dos. When you open it there are several pictures to click on. The one that is supposed to be your next lesson is a set of keys. It simulates a child being accidentally locked inside a house and your task is to click on the different people to simulate how they can save her. Do feel free to have a go at the other simulation activites too. If you can't work the activity out, don't worry.

Fractions PowerPoint if you prefer to use this rather than the YouTube video.

Marvellous Moon Landing writing

Fabulous Fractions work.

Lots of wonderful work from today on the Anglo Saxons.

Tuesday 28th April

Thank you for all the work that you sent in yesterday.

Literacy

Keep going with your news reports on the moon landing if you didn't get it done yesterday and check out Purple Mash for your spelling task. I have also re-set the grammar task and remembered this time to slow the timer down so it should now be possible to do.

Maths

I have now hopefully sorted out the fractions lessons and so please follow this YouTube link to access Fractions lesson 1.

https://youtu.be/bmI_dvR4KN0

If any of you managed to get it done yesterday from the rather disastrous PowerPoint then well done and you can have a day off maths today.

Topic

I'm not going to set any new work on the Anglo Saxons today as there were two tasks as part of the work I set yesterday, but do check out the BBC Bitesize website to find out more about them if you would like to.

 

Examples of Work sent in from Monday 27th April

Monday 27th April

Welcome back to another week of home learning in class 7. 

For literacy this week I will continue to set spelling and grammar exercises on Purple Mash and below there is a link to a writing activity for you to complete throughout the week. This week it is a non-fiction piece of writing. We will be starting a new topic on fractions in maths and continuing to learn about the Anglo Saxons in history.

As usual, do what you can manage each day and send me pictures of work that you have been able to do via our class Dojos page. 

Non-Fiction Writing Activity

Fractions Lesson 1

After a bit of a disaster uploading lesson 1 successfully today, I will send you the link to it for tomorrow. Try and do some TTRockstars instead because your x tables will really help you with your fractions work.

History

The links below include a PowerPoint to help you learn about village life in Anglo Saxon times and then there are two worksheets that can be used but if you would rather just work on paper then that is fine. The worksheets may not set out the work in the way you would like to set it out.

Pebbles to hide

Friday 24th April

Well done, we've nearly made it to the end of another week of fantastic learning.

Literacy

Keep those letters coming in for each other and maybe take some time today to look at a page of your book and write some questions for one of your parents to try and answer. Use all the different types of questions that we use in school but make sure that you know the answers.

Maths

We would usually do our Beat That x table tests on a Friday so choose the colour that you normally do and see how many you can get right in 90 seconds. If you don't finish them all then you can finish off the sheet.

Topic

We would normally have Golden Time on a Friday afternoon where lots of you enjoy doing some colouring or drawing. Have a go at drawing a picture of yourself. Look in a mirror to try and make it look just like you. Draw yourself doing something that you really love doing and if you can, send it to me via Dojos.

Thursday 23rd April

Thank you for all the amazing work that you've been sending in. Lots of great writing, maths and history.

Literacy

I'm not going to set you any new writing for today. Keep going with your water slide and/or your letters to each other.

Maths

This will be our final lesson on perimeter.

 

 

Topic

We often have a PHSE lesson on a Thursday so there is a task set on PurpleMash about the different emotions that we experience.

Wednesday 22nd April

Great job yesterday with your learning class 7. Keep it up.

Literacy:

If you haven't finished your water slide writing then keep on with that. If you have, then you could have a go at writing a letter to your best friend. Tell them all bout what you have been up to and make sure that you ask them how they are. If they are in our class and you send me a picture of your letter, then I can send the picture of the letter to your friend.

Maths:

Here is the link to the YouTube lesson for today and the presentation and worksheet are available to download below.

 

Tuesday 21st April

Well done for all your hard work yesterday. 

Literacy

Continue your writing task from yesterday. Can you include some sentences that really show how you would be feeling at the top of the slide and when you have reached the bottom? Challenge yourself to edit your work by putting in more noun phrases (e.g. determiner, adjective, adjective noun) and maybe a simile.

 

Maths

Please find the PowerPoint and worksheet for the second lesson on Perimeter below and here is the link to the YouTube video...

https://youtu.be/ehZ5v1Y7rpE

It isn't displaying the worksheet very clearly on the video, but you can open up the worksheet from the link below or print it out.

 

Topic

Finish off any work on the Anglo-Saxons from yesterday and I have set you an ICT task on Purple Mash because we would usually visit the ICT suite today. You have all week to complete it.

Monday 20th April 2020

Literacy:

For today, I have set you a spelling and grammar task on PurpleMash.

Below this message you will find a link to this week's writing task which is for you to spend some time on each day to make sure that your writing is your best. 

Maths:

I would also like you to spend some time practising your x tables on TTRockStars.

The rest of your maths lesson can be accessed via this YouTube clip.

https://youtu.be/sLF_xKVo3L4

I have recorded myself taking you through the lesson presentation and you will be able to pause it and replay any bits that you are unsure of. You can also use the links below to print out the worksheet or you can just use paper. I have also provided a link to the lesson presentation if YouTube is a problem, but this doesn't include the voice over of me explaining/teaching.

The answers are on the YouTube video so you can mark your own work, but do send me pictures of any completed work so that I can see how you did.

Topic:

Take a look at the PowerPoint presentation that I have created a link to about Anglo Saxons.

Holiday Project Idea

Given the restrictions that we currently have in what we can do, I’ve decided to give my daughter a holiday project. She is going to spend the two week holiday pretending to be a travel agent and will research a different country every day. She is going to put together a brochure describing places to visit, traditional food, festivals, weather, traditional music, places to stay and anything else interesting about the country. If any of you would like a holiday project then I thought you might like to do this too. You never know, you might find a country that you would love to visit one day! Entirely optional of course.

Try this maths booklet if you want to carry on a bit of work this holiday.

Craft ideas

Successful bath bomb making.

Weaving Challenge

Cracking Cress Heads

Simple but rather lovely.
A simple Easter bunny craft to enjoy.

Bird Feeder

Another creative idea to try.

Great idea for bookmarks

Easter Cards

Happy Easter

Happy Easter

Happy Easter Class 7

Well it’s the last day of term today which means that you will have a two week break from home schooling. We would usually make your families an Easter card and send them home, but it would be lovely if you could make the class an Easter card, take a photograph of it and message me it through Dojos. I can then post them for the whole class to see here, on Twitter and Dojos. They’ll keep us all smiling. Also, have a go at making chocolate rice crispy nests or Easter buns and send me pictures of those too. I hope that you all have a very happy Easter and I will be back online to help you with your home schooling on Monday 20th April.

Check out our Dojo account for story time with Mrs France.

Spanish Home Learning Revision

Do you love listening to stories? We've read quite a few this year, Harry the Poisonous Centipede, The Magic Finger, The Abominables, Ferno the Fire Dragon to name a few. If you're missing our daily storytime then follow this link to listen to stories online for free. 

 

https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

 

Happy listening!

Welcome to Class 7.We have lots of exciting topics to learn about this year including History Makers, Save Our World and Battles and Invasions. We will also be doing plenty of Science Investigations and Music making amongst other things so there is lots to look forward to.

Welcome to online learning in Class 7.

It is important that you check your Purple Maths' emails and To Do lists to keep up to date with the tasks that I will be setting you each day. Expect to be doing some reading and SPAG work, number and topic maths and one other subject each day. 

I will also use Twitter and this page of the website to keep you and your parents updated.

Whilst the sun is shining, try to get out for a bit of fresh air and exercise. At least the wind and rain seem to be gone for nowsmiley.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you all manage to achieve over the next few weeks.

Take care everyone.

Dear Parents,

There is more than one web address for accelerated reader. This is the correct one.

Mrs France

We listened to 'The Truth Pixie' by Matt Haig as well as an interview on Kids Radio where he talked about his sequel 'The Truth Pixie Goes to School'. This inspired us to create our own Truth Pixies and it made us think about how to be a true and honest friend. We also made friendship mobiles to hang in our classroom to remind us about all the qualities we discussed.

The Brilliant Bag company have asked us to find reflective materials to go on their new school book bags. We have predicted which materials will be the best for the purpose.

We are using the pictures below which are taken from 'Journey' by Aaron Becker to predict what might be happening so that we can write our own stories. We have realised that this is a magic book because it is telling a different story to each of us.

Inference Skills

Hooray! We managed to persuade the Texan property developer to stop destroying the Amazon Rainforest in order to build fancy hotels. We all spoke really clearly and our arguments were very persuasive.

Persuasive Speeches

Learning about biomes, climate and weather from an atlas.

Rainforest weather forecasts

Still image for this video
Did you know that in our country we talk more about the weather than in lots of other countries? In class 7 we have been finding out why they probably don’t need a weather forecast. Please watch our forecasts to find out why. Have they managed to be ‘tongue in cheek’?

Fire Safety Talk

We have been trying to plan a healthy menu for the week keeping our fats and sugars to a minimum and increasing the amount of fruit and vegetables. We even discovered that some of our favourite crops have sugar in them!
This week we are writing thank you letters to our families for all of the experiences, gifts and food that we enjoyed over our Christmas holidays. Today we have been working on descriptive phrases that we can include.

Descriptive phrases

A musical concert

Thank you to Mr Dodd and Mrs Mellor for giving us a lovely introduction to the instruments that they teach in a special concert for years 1,2 and 3 this afternoon.

If anyone would like to learn a musical instrument at school, then just let Mrs Gillespie know in the school office.

Greatest Scientist Debate

Fabulous speaking and listening during our class debate. We concluded that Louis Pasteur, Marie Curie and Alexander Fleming all made amazing discoveries and are still saving lives today.

Winter scenes for the classroom.

Today we have been making posters to advertise our baubles, marshmallow snowmen and wooden tree decorations that we have made and will be selling at the school Christmas fair.
First of all we had to carefully measure 2 cm along the edge of our paper to make strips of paper that were all exactly the same width and length. We then followed some quite detailed instructions to make beautiful paper baubles.

Christmas DT

Having fun tasting foods made from milk and curdling milk to launch our topic about Louis Pasteur.
