Madagascar, Kalahari and Zambezi Class Home Learning

Zambezi Home Learning

Hi Zambezi class, so it's the last week of term and if you were in class you would be up to lots of fun activities. Now, you're at home, so things are a little different, but we're going to make sure your home learning matches the fun you would be having at school.

Remember to log in to Zoom with the code that has been emailed to your parents at 9a.m. and then again at 1p.m. At 9a.m. we will explain the tasks and at 1p.m. we will check how you're going. Don't worry if you don't like being on Zoom, you don't have to have your camera on. 

OK, in no particular order here are your tasks: 

Tuesday

Design your ultimate 3-course meal! If you could have absolutely anything to eat what would you have for your starter, main course and finally your pudding? What drinks would you have to go along with your meals? And... you can eat this meal anywhere in the world so, where would you put your table and chair to be able to sit down and enjoy your choices?

In your home and if you have one, a garden, find an object for each letter of the alphabet. For example, you could have a 'cup' for 'c'. Can anyone find an object for 'z'? Bring your object alphabet to the afternoon's Zoom, so we can compare what everyone finds for the different letters.

Following on from yesterday's dance click here for a Zumba two minute dance you can all have a go at, see if you can do it with that funky attitude again! If you want to carry on dancing here's another dance you can join in with and sing along with too — if you want!

Yesterday you wrote some things down you would like your new teacher/s and teaching assistants to know about you. Today have a go at writing down what you hope to achieve by the end of Year 5. What are you going to aim towards? You could then put it somewhere safe so that at the end of Year 5 you could get it out and see if you have achieved your aim/s!

Okay, yesterday you made a paper helicopter (there was a sneaky aeroplane), today you can officially make a paper aeroplane. Click here to watch a YouTube clip on how to make one. How far will yours fly? Will it fly in a straight line? Don't forget to use any pens of pencils you might have to draw a design onto your plane. 

Make your own word search. Pick a letter of the alphabet, think of ten words beginning with that letter and then create a word search with those ten words hidden in it. Don't forget to check you have spelt the words correctly each time. 

Here is a sneaky peak at the words you have to work towards being able to spell in Year 5 and 6, to help give you a head start pick 3 of the words on the sheet and see if you can learn how to spell them by the end of the day! You can pick more than 3 if you want. Click here for the list (you could print this list off and put it in your bedroom to help your through year 5).  You could practise them by writing the words your learning in lots of funky ways. Why not write your word big enough so that you can cut each letter out, muddle your letters up and then try and put your word back together again. Watch this short video clip for more ideas to help you learn the spellings.

 

 

 

 

Monday

With somebody in your family being the hippo you need to complete the dog's dance moves — watch the video clip here.  Can you persuade your family member to do the dog moves whilst you're the hippo? Hope it creates lots of laughs! If the adult you are with is busy doing their work can you do both parts?

Just incase it rains in the summer holidays (fingers crossed it doesn't) design a board game that you can play with your family. Can you make any pieces you need for your game out of paper? Don't forget to write up the rules and 'How to Play' instructions. 

Exercise is good for all of us, for lots and lots of reasons, so this task is to design an exercise routine that uses lots of funky and funny moves — exercise that makes you laugh as well! Think about when you did circuits with Mr Little and use that to help you. For example, you could create 10 different moves, each move has to be done for 30 seconds with 30 seconds recovery before moving onto the next move. The funkier your moves the better! Once you've finished designing your routine why not see if you can complete it — make sure you drink plenty of water whilst you're doing so. 

Have a look through your recycling are there any boxes and/or cardboard in there that you can use to create your own junk model? The Olympics are just about to start and are being held in Japan. How about creating, with your junk, a mascot for the Olympics? If you have access to the Internet you could look up previous mascots to help give you some ideas. 

Using this clip to help you, make a paper helicopter. If you don't have a paperclip at home, be inventive and see what else you can use instead. Make your helicopter as decorative as you can. Once it's ready to fly see how high you can throw it and then time how long before it lands. Can your helicopter fly longer than 10 seconds? Remember you don't need a timer you can count yourself: 1 elephant, 2 elephants, 3 elephants, 4 elephants... Do you need to make any adjustments, so it flies for longer?

Build a den somewhere in your house or garden. Once you've built it, get yourself a nice cold drink and spend at least 20 minutes in it, hidden away reading. 

Write down (in your neatest handwriting of course) five things you would like your new teacher to know about you. You can write more than 5 if you want! Bring it back to school with you, with your name on, so we can give it to your new teacher.

Click here for an example timetable for a day of learning, without any timing. Please note this is purely a suggestion for the day and does not have to be followed.

To start each day there will be a video loaded onto YouTube at 9a.m., click here for this link, this will give your child a brief explanation of the day and then either their literacy or numeracy lesson. This will be taught by a teacher in your child's year group.

There will also be another video for your child to listen to a year group story at the end of each day. Click here for this link.

It would be lovely to see any work your child completes. This can be emailed in to the following email address: year4@ferndale.swindon.sch.uk. Where a teacher from your child's class will send your child a comment back to encourage and compliment them and help with any errors.

Please note most of these sheets do not need to be printed off. If your child was in school they would be expected to copy the answers / sentences etc into their books.
