PSHE

This term, our PSHE unit is called ‘Dreams and Goals’ – this is a chance for us to reflect on the year we have shared so far, thinking about what we have enjoyed most and think about things we can be doing now to help work towards our goals!

For this week, think back to the start of Year 4 and onward – what has been most memorable to you? Was it a trip we went on? Taking part in a class assembly? Being part of a club? Maybe a lesson or a unit we completed? Why is this?

R.E.

Before the half term, we explored what helps us in our journey of life and how this is similar to the beliefs Muslims have as they see the 5 pillars of Islam as guidance to help them in their daily lives. This week, we are going to look at the first pillar, Shahdah and its significance to Muslims.

The Shahdah is one of the most important beliefs in Islam and forms one of the five pillars of Islam. The Shahdah says ‘I witness that there is no other god but Allah, and Muhammad is the prophet of Allah’. 

Discuss at home: What does the Shahdah show about the prophet?

The mosque plays the Shahdah to call people to prayer. When a Muslim baby is born, it is the first thing they hear. Traditionally, their dad will whisper it to them.

Discuss at home: What do you think your parent should have whispered to you as a baby? If you think it is the Shahdah, what is the next thing they should have whispered to you?

Read the story of ‘Bilal the first Muezzin’ that is below.

Discuss at home: What mattered most to Bilal? How do you know?

What matters most to you? What belief would you stand up for even if people were being cruel to you?

How might hearing the Shahdah every day affect the life of a Muslim?

PSHE

What jobs do you think these people have?

You do not need to answer this in you work book but have a discussion with someone at home:

What do you think a teacher, doctor, shop work or an actor should look like?

Are we right to judge someone based on their appearance?

How are we discriminating against someone when we judge them based on their appearance?

RE

Last week, we thought about experiences that help us on our journey through life. As part of our learning this week, we are going to explore ‘What helps Muslims on their journey through life?’

Muslims refer to the 5 pillars of Islam to help them in their life. These 5 pillars are an expression of ibadah (worship / belief in action). The five pillars of Islam provide a structure for Islamic daily spiritual life. Islam is like a house held up by five strong pillars with central themes of purification and sharing with others.  Muslims must not only believe in the five pillars, but also act on their beliefs.

How is this similar to the five experiences you chose last week?

In your work book, draw each pillar and answer the following questions:

  • What is it?
  • How often does it happen?
  • Where does it happen?
  • Why is it important?
  • How does it help a Muslim in their journey through life?

PSHE

This week, we are going to discuss the links between racism and discrimination, and what it means.

Both Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King experienced both racism and discrimination for who they were. Take a look at the video clips to learn more:

So, what do these words mean?

Racism is prejudice or discrimination against someone of a different race based on the belief that one race is better than another.

Discrimination is the unfair treatment of different types of people, especially on the grounds of race, age, or gender.

You do not need to answer these questions in your home learning book, have a discussion with someone at home:

What is racism and discrimination? How do they link with each other?

Where do we see racism in real life? Why is racism unacceptable?

How can we stand up to racism?

R.E.

In this unit, we will be considering the question ‘What is it like to be a British Muslim today?’ We will be discussing what helps us on our journey of life, the key beliefs of a Muslim and the meaning behind the five pillars of Islam.

This week, we are going to explore what help us through our journey in life.

Imagine you are on a road and in front of you is a path that stretches out taking you on your journey through life - you can draw this out in your workbook, look at the example below.

What kind of things help you through your journey? These could include learning to ride a bike, school closure, reunited with family and friends after lock down, falling off a climbing frame, passing exams – good and bad experiences.

Out of the experiences you have placed on your paths, which five are the most important? These can be physical (e.g. health) or moral/spiritual (e.g. love).

Why have you chosen these five?

Here is Simone's example...

Topic - History

Athens vs Sparta
Question: Which city would you have lived in and why?

This week for History, you are going to be writing an argument to explain which Ancient Greek city you would have lived in and why.

Athens and Sparta were two Greek Cities with many differences.

Below is a worksheet with information about the life of boys and girls in both.
Use this to help you write you argument explaining which city you would have wanted to live in and why?

Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of V.E Day! 

As part of commemorating VE Day, this week, we are going to look at the history behind VE Day and why it is celebrated!

Watch this video clip from the BBC Learning Page where it explains how ‘Victory in Europe’ or VE Day came about and a recount from Alan, who was a young boy at the time, explaining what it was like to hear this news!

Sadly, because of social distancing restrictions, most of the VE Day celebrations and street parties have been cancelled BUT let’s still mark this special occasion and honour the men and women of WW2.

You can make your own special VE Day ‘Great British Bunting’ to display in your window at home!

We'll Meet Again Song

We'll Meet Again was a song sung by Vera Lynn that became famous during World War Two. It became popular with soldiers and their families and was seen as a song of hope. 

Today, the song is still popular and many people are learning it as part of VE Day celebrations! 

Below you will find the lyrics and a link to a YouTube recording of Bethan singing the song with her class when she was 11 years old and in Year 6!

History

Science

During this half term, we are going to explore different Greek scientists and how their ideas had an impact on our lives today!

This week we are going to look at the works of Euclid. He was a Greek Mathematician who developed a simple way of understanding geometry (different types of shapes, like circles, squares, triangle etc…) – in fact, some said he was the ‘Father of Geometry’!

Check out this video to learn more about Euclid and his work!

As part of your task, create a fact file page about Euclid giving information about:

  • An intro about who he was (when he was born, where came from in Greece, when he died).
  • His work in geometry (what was his book ‘Elements about’, how did he teach others about shapes).
  • How his work about geometry helps us today.

 Here are some more cool videos to help you with your task:

This week, we are going to look at some examples of Greek pottery from the British Museum.

  1. Browse through the different pottery designs and look at their patterns - what story is it trying to tell?
  2. Pick four pottery designs you like and make an observational drawing of the patterns featured - you may want to split your page into four sections so you have enough room to sketch each pattern/design out. Take a look at Simone's example below.
  3. Once you have sketched your favourite designs, think and answer the question below:

Artefacts, like these Greek pots, are a useful historical resource to study from - why do you think this is?

Take a look at Simone's example to see how to split your page:

Planned Learning

Writing

In writing we are learning to write an explanation text. Here are the things you need to do this week: 

Step 1:

Watch this amazing video about how crayons are made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmiRjmbnn8Q 

Step 2: 

Watch the video below of Joe saying our new model text, called Crayons - An Amazing World of Colour. You need to learn ALL the words and actions. Can you get it absolutely perfect? 

Step 3: 

Practise saying the model text in the video using only the text map to remind you. Once you have it perfect, perform it for someone at home. 

Grammar

‘Do’ is a very common verb. It has two past tenses: ‘did’ and ‘done’. Here are some of the ‘do’ rules:

  1. When writing in the past tense, the simple past tense that we use is ‘did’.

E.g. I did, you did, he did.  

Not ‘I done it’.

 

  1. In the past progressive tense, ‘do’ uses the verb ‘were’ or ‘was’. Here the correct form of ‘do’ is ‘doing’.

E.g. I was doing, you were doing, he was doing.

Not ‘I were doing’ or ‘you was doing’.

 

  1. ‘Done’ is used in the present perfect tense.

E.g. I have done, you have done, he has done.

Not ‘I done it’ or ‘I have did it’.

 

Task: All the sentences below have used ‘do’ incorrectly. Using the facts, correct the sentences and write these correct sentences into your workbooks.

  1. Simone was done her workout in the morning.
  2. I done my online learning this week.
  3. “I done it!” shouted Bethan.
  4. Have you did your homework?
  5. Joe done his work as quickly as he could.

Extension: there may be more than one way of correcting the sentences. You can write down these other ways too!

This week we are building on our knowledge of the rivers by learning the water cycle. Here are the things you need to do:

  1. Watch this video http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/ecosystems/water-cycle.htm) about the water cycle (you might need to watch it a few times so you know it really well!)
  2. Now you understand it really well, copy the picture of the water cycle into your work books and add the correct words into the right places.
  3. Finally, make notes in your work book about each stage of the water cycle. Your notes should explain what happens in each stage. The stages are: 1. Evaporation, 2. Condensation, 3. Precipitation. There is an example of what your notes should look like below.

Learning from last week is below. This learning was posted on the website on 25/03/20

Writing

Last week we learned lots of amazing verbs that we can use to describe what water does. They are above! 

We would like you to use some of these words to write a poem about water. 

To do this, you need choose something to talk about for each line and then find an appropriate verb to describe it. How much detail can you add? 

Here is an example of how your poem could start: 

Water Everywhere

 Rain drizzles to the earth, soaking everything, soaking into the earth. 

Gently, it bubbles up and seeps down where it ripples into rivers. 

In homes, it gushes from taps and gurgles down peoples throats. 

 

 

Handwriting

Below are this week's handwriting words for you to practice in your work book: 

Practice one line for each word (e.g. 1 line practising 'further', 1 line practising 'found', 1 line practising 'definite').

Grammar

Reading

To keep up with reading, please ensure that you are reading for 20 minutes every day and keeping a record of that in your Reading Record. 

Additionally, there is a chapter to read on Purple Mash, this has been set on your '2Dos' - please read and then complete the comprehension questions about that chapter. 

Spelling

Below are the spellings to practice for this week.

You can practise them by using 'look, cover, write, check' in your work book. 

Try writing each word three times. 

Maths

This week, we are learning to understand tenths as decimals. Make sure you watch the video as this will help you for when you complete your independent task! If you have any questions, you can post them on the class blog page on Purple Mash. 

Last week's maths answers

This will be uploaded next week for you to check.

You can mark your work and share your results in our class blog!

Geography

 Below are the drawings that we looked at in school when we learned the parts of a river. Also below are the special words we have been learning for river parts. We would like you to do the following things: 

  1. Create a flow chart that explains how a river is created. You can use bullet points in a list and drawings. Make sure you include the special river words we have learned! 
  2. When you have created your flow chart, use it to explain to someone in your family how a river is formed. 
  3. There is an example below of what your flow chart could look like. 

If you missed the learning we did in school, or you just need a refresher, here are some links to videos which will help you out:
