Friday 17th July
It’s Friday again! We hope you’ve had a great week and are now looking forward to the weekend. It’s not long until the end of term!
Over the summer holiday the online music site Charanga are offering you a free music resource! Here are all the details…
The link to the resources on Charanga is here:
How do I get involved?
The music for Just Sing and the backing track has been shared with schools in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk and it’s suitable for families to get involved with over the summer holidays. There will be additional resources released every week throughout July and August to get you all inspired.
Extra resources will include activities based around everything from kitchen percussion workshops to specific instruments such as piano and guitar. They will also include suggestions for fun activities and video tutorials from our teaching team.
“Whether you sing the song, make a video or create some artwork, we’d love it if you let us know how you brought the song to life!” said Alex the composer. “Your response doesn’t have to be musical – so get creative in any medium you enjoy!”
How can I access this?
These resources are available for you to access via your Charanga accounts. I have already set you all up on a Charanga account and I sent your passwords to your parents via email a few weeks ago.
I really hope you enjoy this project over the summer!
Today’s theme for Friday is: Future Friday
With hard work and perseverance any dream is possible. What does your future look like?
We hope you really enjoy your weekend and have lots of fun. Not long to go now until the summer holiday!
Have a great day!
Miss Barrett and Mrs Ashby
Friday’s learning tasks:
Start your day with an active start. There are lots of options for you:
- Weekly challenge from Pav
- Norfolk School Games Week 1
- Joe Wicks – daily P.E on YouTube
- Go Noodle – also available on YouTube
- Or create your own P.E session – for example, an obstacle course in the garden or lead a keep fit session with your family to your favourite tunes.
- Read your book for 20 minutes. Or you could read a book from Bug Club. Bug club books are great because they have comprehension questions for you to answer too.
- Complete a maths quiz on Diagnostic Questions
- Maths – This week for maths look in our Resources section for details.
- Further Maths to have a go at! Visit the White Rose website ‘Summer Term Week 12 (w/c 13th July) and complete the Lesson 5 challenge. Remember, if you are finding these too tricky you could look at a lower year group or if you need a greater challenge look at a higher year group instead. We do not have a subscription to the worksheets so this activity is just watching and discussing the video.
- Complete the word of the day activities – see below.
- Visit Active learn website and select a maths and a SPAG activity to complete.
- Writing activity - Please see the Resources section for the writing starters for you to choose from this week.
- ART/MUSIC – Have another go at the sound art! Click on the below link to take you to the Tate Kids website. Choose a sound and get creative!
- Remember to build in some quiet time, creative time and outdoor time! There is a list of nature activities for you to do that I’ve taken from the Wildlife Trust that you could have a go at – see document for Random Acts of Wildness. If you fancy some cooking, there are also great easy to follow recipes on Willow class page that you may want to try.
Word of the day
- What is the definition of ‘existence’?
- Synonyms – (words that have a similar meaning)
- Antonyms – (words that have an opposite meaning)
- Challenge: How many words can you think of that end in ‘ence’? ‘Ence’ means an action, state, condition or quality. Eg, coincidence, convenience
- Research why some words end in ‘ence’ and some in ‘ance’. Clue – it relates to the vowels that preceded these suffixes. See if you can come up with a rule to explain this!
- Ask a family member to give you a spelling test of the words from this week. Can you spell them all correctly? All of the 5 words this week have been taken from the Y5 & 6 spelling list.
- Extra activities (optional):
- Using the 5 words from this week: write each word on to small separate pieces of paper. Then order them using your own criteria, eg alphabetical order, softer to harder sounding words etc. Try lots of different ways.
- Why not create a short story (paragraph in length) that includes these words. What genre will you use? Horror, comedy, traditional tale, sci-fi?
- Get creative and draw picture clues for each word from this week without writing the word in the picture. Can the people in your family guess what the words are?
- Using each WOD, create a word search or crossword – remember you could also include the synonyms or antonyms you found.
- Create anagrams using the words from this week.
- Create a word game using the WODs that you could play with friends or family.
