Online Work - Week Commencing 06/04/2020

To be completed by Sunday 12th April and sent to y5parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk 

Maths

Please find below last week's Maths answers and this week's activities. It will be easier for you to download the documents, as the formatting hasn't quite transferred onto the website correctly.

Once you have completed your piece of work, please email the address above and in the subject header, please write your name and the subject work you have completed. For example: Mr Pennington - Maths, or Miss Martin - SPAG and English.

We will put the answers for this week's work on next week's activities. If you have any problems, please do not hesitate to email

English

LC: Can I find out what jobs were like for people living in the Tudor times?

This week in English, we’re looking to our IPC topic: the Tudors. Do you know what type of jobs you could have in Tudor times?

 

Task 1: watch Worst Jobs in History

Watch ‘The Worst Jobs in History’ to find out some of the more ‘interesting jobs.’ Which ones do you think would be the worst? Why? Do you think jobs for poor people and rich people were similar? What do you predict would be the differences?

Add your answers to our class blog!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=561&v=8QUd-cTNT8o&feature=emb_logo

 

Task 2: job advertisement

When looking for a new job, we have to look through job advertisements to find how much a job pays, what skills are needed to take the job, and what the duties will be. Can you write your own job application for one of the jobs that were common in Tudor times? Use the video or your own internet research to help you.

*writing target: can you use brackets and bullet points?*

An example is below:

Job Title:

Executioner

Duties of the job (what do you have to do)

Perform execution by hanging or beheading.

Salary

Not much!

Skills needed

Must be strong enough to hold an axe.

A loud voice to shout.

Desirable features

Must like crowds

Must not mind being shouted at and hated.

Must not mind blood.

Benefits

Avoid being executed yourself

 

Task 3: writing a letter

Can you write a letter to your prospective (future) employer asking for the job? Think back to when we wrote our letters to Mr Snell asking to be Sports Leaders. A good letter has:

  • The Addresses: put it to the right hand side (make it up if you like!)

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to apply for the role of ‘Lead Executioner’ as advertised in the newspaper last week, as I believe I possess the qualities required for the job.

Coming from a gardening background, I feel my strength and technique with an axe is very adequate. Furthermore, I have been hunting animals for years- I believe this sets me in good stead for the executing of criminals as humans logically becomes the next step.

I have no fear of the public hatred and indeed relish the opportunity to put criminals in their rightful place! I have a loud, commanding voice (so I have been told) and consider myself to be an excellent public speaker. Therefore, announcing the death of criminals to large crowds of jeers and anger proves no barrier to me. 

Although I have not worked in the criminal justice system before, I do believe my past employment and my personal attributes will allow me to carry out this job with ease and professionalism.

 

I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,

John Hangman

LC: Can I use commas in a list?

 

What’s wrong with this sentence?

            I went to the shop to buy apples and bananas and grapes and satsumas.

It’s a bit boring using and so much!!!

What’s wrong with this sentence?

            I went to the shop to buy apples bananas grapes and satsumas.

It’s too unclear- we need to use commas to separate items in a list in order to make it clearer.

 

Find out what the brain needs to soften his fall!

Can you add the commas to the following sentences to make them clearer?

  1. The packet contained red and blue and green and yellow felt tips.

LC: Can I use commas for parenthesis?

We can use commas in the same way we use brackets or dashes- to add extra information.

Sometimes this will be in the middle of the sentence:

Emily, who always wore black, hated pink with a passion.

But you can also add extra information at the end of the sentence.

                      They will be taking their cat, who is called Daisy.

 

Watch this video on all types of parenthesis for more information: https://youtu.be/YZJbRaA3LUI

Can you copy out these sentences and write in where the commas should go?

- Darcie who is very helpful likes to cook at home.

- John’s dog Casper is a little bit annoying!

- Usain Bolt a famous athlete is not competing at the Olympics this year.

- An elephant was seen walking through town which was a big shock to everyone.

- I love eating pizza from the shop or a restaurant but I know it’s unhealthy.

- Peter who wanted to go camping watched the weather very closely.

PSHE

For this week’s PSHE, I would like you to think about role models. Firstly, ask yourself: what makes a role model? Which features make a good role model?

Then, I would like to create a fact file about your role model. It could be absolutely anyone, but most importantly, I would like you to explain why that person is your role model. It could be because they inspire you or they encourage you. There are so many reasons why we have certain role models, but each one is personal to you so no two fact files will be the same.

You can create your fact file either on paper or, if you have one, on a computer. Please can you either take a photo of your fact file or attach to an email and send it to y5parents@crablane.manchester.sch.uk by Sunday 5th April.

Thank you

English

This week we are learning about Anne Frank. Anne Frank was made famous after the Second World War when her father decided to publish a diary she wrote whilst in hiding from the Nazis because she was Jewish. Sadly, Anne and her entire family (except her father) were discovered and they all died in a concentration camp. Her diary has been translated and read by millions of people because it provides us with a first-hand account of what it was like to live in hiding during such a difficult time.

To find out more about Anne Frank, have a look through the powerpoint below:

Task 1: read some of Anne’s diary

Below are some real diary entries from Anne’s diary, which her father published after she died. There is a glossary at the end for the words in bold. Use a dictionary on your phone for any other words you are unsure of.

 

11th July 1942:

“I don’t think I shall ever really feel at home in this house, but that does not mean that I loathe it here, it is more like being on vacation in a very peculiar boarding house… The Secret Annexe is an ideal hiding place. Although it leans to one side and is damp, you’d never find such a comfortable hiding place anywhere in Amsterdam, not even in the whole of Holland. Our little room perhaps looked very bare at first with nothing on the walls: but thanks to Daddy who had brought my film star collection and postcards beforehand and with aid of paste, pot and brush, I have transformed the walls into one gigantic picture.”

24th December 1943:

“Believe me, if you have been shut up for a year and a half it can get too much for you some days. In spite of all justice and thankfulness you can’t crush your feelings. Cycling, dancing, whistling, looking out into the world, feeling young, to know that I am free – that’s what I long for; still I mustn’t show it because sometimes I think that if all eight of us began to pity ourselves, or went around with disconcerted faces, where would it lead us?”

Glossary

Loathe- hate; strongly dislike

Annexe- an additional part of a building joined onto a main building.

Peculiar- different to what is normal or expected; strange

Boarding house- a house providing food and a play to stay, usually for people who pay for it.

Disconcerted- unsettled, frustrated

Task 2:

Have a think about the following questions. What are your thoughts so far? Can you add your ideas to our class blog?

  • Imagine being locked up for over a year and a half with either your family or seven other people. Make a list of all the things you would miss most.
  • Apart from your family, which other people would you most like to be in hiding with?
  • Why do you think Anne wanted to keep a diary?

Task 3:

Can you write a dairy entry for your time at home during lockdown? It doesn’t have to be true; you can make up imaginary things like who you are stuck with, or what you’ve got to do.

Remember to write about:

  • How you are feeling (bored, anxious, excited, relaxed, happy, frustrated? Why?)
  • What you like about it
  • What you don’t like about it
  • Who the main characters are (who you’re spending your time with)

Learning Ladder Challenge:

Year 5:

  • a modal verb
  • adverbial phrases to link ideas across paragraphs:
    • time (later, after a while)
    • place (nearby, beneath the door)
    • number (secondly)

Year 4:

  • use an apostrophe correctly
  • start a sentence using a subordinate clause (if, because, when, although, while, as).

 

Task 4:

In 1942 Anne Frank wrote in her diary:

"The first thing I put in was this diary, then hair curlers, handkerchiefs, schoolbooks,

a comb, old letters; I put in the craziest things with the idea that we were going into hiding. But I'm not sorry, memories mean more to me than dresses."

 

Imagine that one day you had no choice but to hide away for a long time…

You had time to pack only three things.

What would they be and why would you take them?

Draw the pictures of what you would take in your suitcase, then fill in these sentences.  Can you write your ideas on our class blog? 

  1. The most important thing would be ________________________________

because: _______________________________________________________

 

  1. The next thing I would take is ____________________________________

because: ________________________________________________________

 

  1. The last thing would be _________________________________________

because: _____________________________________________________

  4. I put my hands over my face to stop it twitching.
  5. “Just a minor Velcro mishap. I’ll sort you out, don’t worry,” said Hassan. He tugged at my costume for a while and patted my back reassuringly.

 

Now, can you fill the gap with the appropriate pronoun?  You must not use the same pronoun two times within this question.

  1. ___________ are identical twins.
  2. Robert is my father and ____________ is my mother.

Learning Challenge: Can I write a play script?

This week we're looking at writing our own play script

A play script is a piece of writing written for the stage, television or cinema.

Task 1: Have a look at the play script below... What features can you spot? How is it different to a normal story you'd see in a book?

Some features you might be able to see are: 

  • A list of characters (at the very beginning) also called a cast list.
  • It may be divided into acts which are then divided into scenes.
  • Each scene will have a description of the setting at the start and then the characters' dialogue.
  • Dialogue is set out with the character's name on the left, then a colon then the dialogue (without speech marks/inverted commas).
  • Stage directions for the actors are written every now and again in italics (slanted writing) and brackets.

Task 2: 

Can you remember the story of Odysseus and the cyclops? Use these pictures to remind yourself; can you retell the story to yourself someone in your house? You can create your own story board if you like, on a piece of paper or at Storyboardthat.com

Task 3:

Now have a go at writing your own play script! Here is a template to get you started... 

 

Cast List: Odysseus, cyclops, men 1, 2 3. 

(Odysseus's men arrive on a spectacular island, full of fluffy lambs and kids.) 

Man 1: This place is paradise! There'll be plenty of food to eat here. 

Odysseus: (pointing excitedly) Look over there! We should investigate that cave which is full of enclosures of animals. 

 

Please email me your play scripts by Monday 30th March via a photo if written on paper, or a word document. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Phonics groups: 

Read the passage below. Can you rewrite it and replace the mistakes you find? You can use a dictionary on a phone or tablet to help you. The number of mistakes on each line is written in brackets on the left. 

Don't forget to look for:

- capital letters  - full stops    - commas in a list    - apostrophes                    - spelling mistakes    - inverted commas (speech marks)

1. (5) Sarah gaiv her mum a dirtee look She didnt like it wen she was told off!
