Hi everyone.  It’s your final day before a well earned rest next week.  I won’t be setting any work for next week.

We have another birthday today so a massive Happy Birthday shout out to Louis who is nine today.  I hope you have a great day!

Also, it is Oceanna’s birthday on Sunday.  Happy Birthday Oceanna!  I sure you will have a great day with lots of fun and cake!

Well done Oceanna on an exciting Egyptian adventure story.  You have really used your imagination, included some great expanded noun phrases and used lots of subordinating conjunctions.  I really enjoyed reading it!  Click on the link below and you can also read this amazing story.

Oceanna’s story

Well done Sophia on sewing a pair of slippers.  I have sent your email to Mrs Kay who I know will be very impressed.

I will be putting up some more or your photos later today so remember to check our class page.  I’m going into school shortly.

Some great photos of Sophia enjoying herself.  Well done with the grammar starter – it is all correct.

Thursday 21st May

Good morning everyone.  I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine yesterday and hopefully it will be another warm day today.

First of all, a very Happy Birthday to Macie who is nine today.  Have a fantastic day Macie!!!!

Have a look at the photos of some of your fabulous work.

Well done Jessica.  You have got all of yesterday’s grammar starter correct and written a really interesting story.  You have included the features of a story and have used some fantastic vocabulary which links to Ancient Egypt.

Great work Sophia.  All your grammar starter and maths are correct.  You clearly know all your times tables and related division facts.

Super work Amelia.  Everything looks to be correct and it’s great to see you enjoying the beautiful sunshine.  Let’s hope this glorious weather stays with us for a while.

Fabulous work Stacis.  All your grammar starters are correct.  You clearly understand determiners and punctuating fronted adverbials.

Wednesday 20th May

Excellent grammar starters Nicole.  Everything is correct except for question 3 on the determiners starter and question 10 on the personal pronouns.

Great work Amelia.  Everything looks to be correct so well done.  Make sure you have a look at the art competition as  I’m sure you will enjoy it.

Lots of great work Oliwier.  All your Maths looks correct.  You might want to have a look again at your final answer on the Spelling Challenge (clue: it begins with h) and question 8 on your grammar starter.

Well done Jessica.  Great work as always.  All your grammar starternis correct and you have clearly researched the Celts and Romans.

Well done Oceanna.  You have been working really hard on your Maths.  Have a look again at 26 x 4 on Monday’s challenge.  Your multiplication is correct but you have forgotten about the 2 tens you exchanged into the next column.

Tuesday 19th May

Good morning everyone.

It’s a very special day for Amelia J. today.  It is her birthday so a massive Happy Birthday shout to her.  I hope you have a fabulous day.  Don’t eat too much cake!!!

Monday 18th May

A few more photos from today.

Great work Jessica.  You have clearly been working very hard. You have found all the answers to the Spelling Challenge and given some good answers to the Guided Reading.  Just a few things for you to think about on the two star guided reading – You might want to have another look at question 2 (it is tricky) and whilst I agree with you that Lord Carnarvon would have felt excited, you needed to explain why.  Also, the past tense of find is found.  Most of your grammar starter is correct although you might want to re-visit questions 3, 6 and 8.  Keep up the great work!

Well done Stacis.  You have been working very hard and have done very well with your maths work.

Well done Oceanna for completing the Guided Reading.  You might want to have a look at questions 2, 5 and 6 again.  The answer to question 5 begins with the letter C.  Your answer to the final question needed you to explain why you decided Lord Carnarvon was feeling determined.  The rest of your answers are excellent.

Some great photos from Johanan’s and Keanan’s big day.  Looks like you had a great time and the food looks amazing!

 

Congratulations to all the children who made the enormous efforts by entering their favourite story and recreating it in a box! Everyone who took part is a winner-it was just too difficult to choose. A prize will be with you this week so keep a look out.

Monday 18th May – Some great photos of your work.

Lots of lovely photos from Sophia and some excellent work.  Did you manage to solve the Twinkl mystery?  Have a look at the fantastic birthday collage she made for Johanan and Keanan.  I really like your elephants from Goa.  Well done on your spelling test and you have created some fabulous art.

 

Great Maths work Amelia R.

Wow! Your pizza looks amazing Oceanna.  I hope you shared it with mum and dad.  Just looking at it makes me hungry.

Excellent work Oliwier.  Your Maths is all correct and you have written a fantastic diary entry including all the features of a diary.  Take care with using ‘their’ and ‘there’ – have a look back at your last sentence.  The sentence starting ‘Before supper’, needs the comma after supper and not after before.  Keep up the good work.

Monday 18th May- Morning Worship

Sunday 17th May

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

A massive Happy Birthday shout to both Johanan and Keanan who are nine today.  Have a great day boys and don’t eat too much cake!

Have a look at some of the photos I have received to see what your friends have been doing.

Some fantastic work from Sophia including a superb diary entry.

Wow! Those cakes look amazing Oceanna.  I hope you didn’t eat them all yourself!

Excellent work Amelia.  Another fantastic piece of art.

Well done Jessica.  This is super work as always.  Keep up the hard work.

Excellent work Stacis.  Your maths looks to be correct and you have used some good antonyms and synonyms in your grammar starter.

Friday 15th May

Good morning everyone.  Yippee it’s nearly the weekend.  Some more great photos to share with you.  It is also great to see that some of you have been keeping in touch through Google Classroom.

Some excellent maths Oceanna.  Just remember to make sure that you have fully explained your reasoning when solving the maths challenges.  You have told me that £2 is greater than £1, which it clearly is but a better answer would have been to say that 2 lots of £2 is £4 whereas 3 lots of £1 is only £3.  A great diary entry and well done for editing your work.  Let’s hope the weather is warm enough for you to enjoy your pool over the weekend.  I hope you haven’t been splashing your parents!!

Excellent work Sophia.  All your maths appears to be correct and you have given some very detailed answers to the RE questions.  Great choice of antonyms and synonyms.  I know you really like the word ‘vast’.

RE Challenge: can you spot the missing comma in your answer to question 7?

Lots of fabulous work Oliwier.  Well done for completing the spelling challenge.  Congratulations for being 4 Rowan’s Star of the Week.

Thursday 14th May

Hi everyone!  Scroll down to see some of the incredible work that you have been doing.

Well done Stacis on an excellent diary entry.  You have included the common features of a diary and used some wonderful fronted adverbials to show the change in time.  Some great maths as well.

Lots of great work Sophia.  Well done!

Fantastic work Julia.  I really like your Book in a Box.  Mary Poppins is a great book as well as a film.  We have got a first edition of the book at home, which is now quite rare.  Your dogs are so cute!

Great work Jessica.  Your maths work is excellent and you have corrected the last question of the spelling challenge.

A lovely picture Oceanna of you keeping busy with an art activity.  I would love to see your finished mosiac.

Well done Amelia.  It’s great to see that you are also keeping busy and solving lots of mysteries.  You are going to run out of them soon.  I hope your new baby brother is not keeping you awake through the night.

Wednesday 13th May

Good morning everyone.  I hope you are all keeping safe on this sunny morning.  Have a look at some of the fantastic photos and work that I have received.

Have a look at another message and great idea from Mrs Kay.

Hi Children
Hope you’re all keeping well. I can see you’ve all been REALLY busy. The homework pages look absolutely brilliant. You really are an amazing bunch of children.
Year 6 your VE day work is marvelous. I love the photos sent by Josh and Jack in Sycamore class and Kacper and Marley in Hawthorn, your work on The Rainforest is amazing, especially Kacper’s drawing. The writing, maths and sewing activities in Rowan class are always so good.
I always enjoy having a sneaky peak at everything you do, before I post my activities.  Your teachers must be so proud of you. Well Done KS2!
I’ve been creating again and would love it SO much if more of you would take on the slipper challenge. Who can create a pair of recycled slippers from a hand towel, a cardboard box and a pop bottle?
Take care all of you and hopefully we’ll all be together soon.
Mrs Kay…With very unkempt hair.
Click on the link below for the instructions.
How To Make Recycled Slippers

Well done Stacis.  Your maths looks correct and you have given some very detailed answers about the digestive system.

Good morning Amelia.  You have clearly been working hard as usual.  I love your Book in a Box and you have chosen a Literacy classic as your book.  It really suprised me as I was expecting Harry Potter.

Great work Oliwier.  You grammar starter and maths are all correct.  You have written some detailed answers to the RE questions.  Just take care with the spelling of the word ‘listened’.

Good morning Julia.  You have clearly been working very hard.  You have produced some fantastic maths and science work.  Well done!

Fantastic work Jessica.  I really enjoyed reading your diary entry.  You have used lots of fronted adverbials to show changes in time and have included lots of feelings.  I really like your use of the word ‘unveiled’.  Well done with the spelling challenge but you might want to have a look again at the final question.  See the clue below that I have given to Patryk.

Good morning Patryk.  Well done with your Maths and RE work.  Your spelling challenge is very good but you might want to think about your answer to the last question.  Clue:  What would you call the details about where you live?  It begins with an ‘a’.

Well done Sophia!  Lots of brilliant work including some very detailed answers to the RE questions.  If given a choice of questions, I would suggest the three stars.

Lots of fabulous work Oceanna.  You have given some excellent answers to the RE and Science questions.  You have managed to find all the adjectives in the grammar starter.  Just take care with the spelling of the words ‘lovely and ‘shiny’.

Tuesday 12th May

Hi everyone!  Well done to everyone who managed to access Google Classroom yesterday.  I am still trying to figure it out myself.  Scroll down to have a look at some of the photos I received yesterday and some fantastic news from Amelia R.

Good morning Oceanna.  Looks like you are really enjoying that book.  It is not one I know so you will have to tell me all about it when we are all back together.  You have produced an excellent NHS factfile with some great subheadings which allow the reader to quickly locate key information – Well done!  If you want to read Oceanna’s factfile, click on the link below.

NHS info

Fantastic work Patryk.  Everything looks to be correct.  Keep up the hard work and keep smiling!

Some great work Nicole.  Lots of good facts in your NHS factfile and your Maths looks great.  On your irregular verbs grammar starter, you have misspelt the word ‘brought’.

Great work as always Amelia.  Congratulations on becoming a big sister – you must be so excited!!!!  I love the photo of you with your baby brother.  I know you will help mum look after him during this difficult time.

Excellent work Jessica.  Well done!

Good morning Sophia.  Some amazing work as always.  I have added a message for you from Mrs Kay.  I love your Book in a Box – it looks amazing.  Also, well done for entering the competition to decorate Alistair Brownlee’s garage with a mural – lets hope it is shortlisted.

Hi Sophia
Thanks for your email. I love your latest sewing venture. What a brilliant idea for a phone case.  I’m sure now that you and Amelia will need to show me all your sewing ideas when we return to school.  In fact I think we’ll need to have regular meetings to plan our activities. Send Mr.Cook the photos you’ve sent me. He’ll want one too I’m sure.
Take care Rowan class and I’ll see you all soon I hope.
Love Mrs. Kay

Monday 11th May

Good morning everyone.  I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.  Hopefully, you have all received a letter detailing how to access the class work through Google Classroom.  As Google Classroom is a new system for everyone, there may be a few teething problems but hopefully we can resolve these should they arise.  For the moment, I will be continuing to share your amazing work and photos on the school website but they may move onto Google Classroom in the future.

Don’t forget that any entries for the Book in a Box competition should be received by Friday 15th May.  There are two great entries below from Oliwier and Jessica.

Some fantastic work Oliwier.  I am really impressed with your Book in a Box.  It looks great and is easily recognisable as the Titanic – Well done.  The last question on Wednesday’s grammar starter needed a question mark and not a comma.  The past tense of bring is brought.  Also, the past tense of talk is talked and teach would become taught.  I really enjoyed reading your factfile on the NHS, which included all the steps to success.  All your work on ‘a’ and ‘an’ is correct.  Keep up the hard work and have an enjoyable week.

Some fantastic work Oceanna.  It’s great to see that you have been practising your times tables through mixed word problems.  They all look correct.  Your grammar starter on irregular past tense verbs is also correct.  You have also worked really hard on decimals and again they all look to be correct.  Well done and keep up the great work.

Wow! An excellent Book in a Box Jessica.  You have worked really hard and should be very proud of your work.   A lovely smile as well.  I hope you have a great week.

Great work Patryk.  You have produced a good factfile about the NHS.  I am pleased to see that you have used the steps to success in your work.  Well done and keep up the fantastic work.

Well done Stacis with your grammar starter.  You clearly know how to turn irregular verbs into the past tense.  Have a fantastic week.

Lots of amazing work Sophia, which all looks correct.  I am really impressed with your owl themed mobile phone case – it looks amazing and has clearly involved lots of work.  I know Mrs Kay will also be impressedwhen she receives the photos.  It looks as though you had a fun weekend and really enjoyed the sunshine on Friday and Saturday.  Hopefully, you can now access the RE work.  If not, please let the office know and I will try to fix it.

Friday 8th May

Good morning everyone.  Don’t worry, I’m not giving you any work on this special VE day.  I just wanted to share some photos and a message from Mrs Kay on how to make a beach bag.

Massive congratulations to Amelia R. and Jessica for being the Star of the Week in 4Rowan.  I couldn’t decide so choose both of you.

The answers for the weekly spelling challenge were:

  1. February        2. naughty         3. bicycle            4.  disappear

I hope you all remembered to write February with a capital ‘F’.

How to make a recycled beach bag.

Hi Children I’m back again. HOPE YOU’RE ALL KEEPING SAFE AND WELL. Let’s all look forward to happy days on the beach or shopping with this new recycling idea I spotted on the internet.

It shows how to make this great lined beach/swimming/shopping bag out of two old pillow cases. Preferably a favourite one or that will remind you of this time of lockdown. I chose colour to remind me of blue skies and golden sands. I can’t wait for a time when I can use it.

What you need:-
1 patterned/favourite pillow case (plead with mum to replace it with a plain one)
1 plain pillow case
Scissors
Thread
Cotton
Dressmakers pins
Iron (ask for help when using this)Instructions
I’ve posted the You Tube link I used to create the bag. It’s a tricky one but I know some of you will take on this challenge.
https://youtu.be/jm0SsV91hPs

Have a look below to see some of the fantastic things that you and your classmates have been doing.

Some excellent Maths, Johanan and Keanan.  It’s great to see you working hard.  I hope you enjoy the long weekend.  You deserve a rest after all your efforts this week.  Enjoy!

Some fab work, Jessica.  All your maths and grammar starter are correct.  Well done for remembering which is ascending and which is descending.  You certainly deserve to have a relaxing weekend after all your hard work this week.

Well done, Oceanna!  You have been working extremely hard and all your work looks to be correct.  You have found all the answers to the spelling challenge including the Years 5 and 6 words.  Some amazing Science work!  Have a great weekend.

Hi Stacis.  Some excellent work on the grammar starter.  You third answer on the spelling challenge should be ‘bicycle’ not ‘bike’.  Have a lovely weekend.

Good morning, Sophia.  Some excellent work and it looks like you are working very hard on your Book in a Box.  Well done for completing a reading task on Queen Boudicca.  I tried to post the same task last week but couldn’t get it to attach to this page.  The past tense of ‘talk’ is ‘talked’ and the present tense of ‘told’ is ‘tell’.  Have a lovely, relaxing weekend.

Hi, Amelia.  Congratulations on your Star of the Week certificate.  You certainly deserve it for all your hard work.  It’s great to see you practising your spellings on Spelling Shed.  I really enjoyed your NHS factfile – you taught me a few things about the NHS that I didn’t know.  Have a fantastic weekend and enjoy the sunshine.

Hi Patryk.  Lots of great work as always.  On the spelling challenge, you have misspelt ‘bicycle’ and the final answer was ‘disappear’.  Enjoy your weekend and hopefully the sunshine.

Excellent work Amelia R.  Well done for finishing the reading task already.  I can see that you have also been busy solving mysteries.  Did you get it right?  I recently had an email from Mrs Kay to say that she has now bought a sewing machine after seeing yours.  You clearly inspired her!

Some fantastic work Sophia.  I hope you are enjoying the daily maths starters.  Well done for rounding a number in the hundreds of thousands.  I’m pleased you remembered that you only needed to look at the ones column.  Well done for completing the Guided Reading Task.  Your maths looks excellent as does your grammar starter.  Great work.  Keep it up.  The book in a box competition has been added below.  Have fun with it!

Well done, Stacis.  It is great to see that you have also been working hard.  Your work on decimals is great and you have written some good sentences using subordinating conjunctions.  I’m pleased you remembered the commas.

Lots of great work, Sophia.  Well done.  I wonder if you can grow the largest sunflower.  Great scooting!

 

Lots of amazing work, Michal.  Well done! I really enjoyed your story but don’t forget your commas after fronted adverbials.  That is a very impressive amount of Maths work.  Good to see that you are helping out in the garden and your BBQ looks amazing.  Keep up the hard work.

Well done, Patryk!  Your work looks amazing and that’s a great smile.

Excellent work as always Amelia.  I really like your handmade Pom Pom toys.

Some great work Sophia.  Well done.

Some excellent work below from Stacis.  Keep working hard!

Some amazing work Amelia.  I’m pleased to see that you have been researching Queen Boudicca.  It looks as though you are enjoying solving some of the mysteries on Twinkl.  I hope you are enjoying reading Matilda.

Finally, some fantastic pictures from Jessica.  Lots of great work and it looks as though you and your brothers enjoyed yesterday’s Go Noodle.  It certainly brought a smile to my face but I’m not sure your pet dog looks very impressed.  Just take care with the subordinating conjunction ‘even though’.  It is two words and you have spelt ‘thought’ not ‘though’.

Some great photos of Amelia’s day.  I loved reading your story.  You have included all the steps to success and the features of a good story.  Your grammar starter is all correct.  Did you solve the mystery of the missing horse?

Excellent work, Sophia.  Great to see you continuing to work hard.

Some fantastic work as usual, Jessica.  Your Maths is all correct and so are your Grammar starters.  Just a few things to think about with Tuesday’s grammar starter.  You have written an excellent sentence for the challenge but need a comma after your fronted adverbial and have misspelt the word birthday.

Excellent work, Stacis.  All your Maths and Grammar Starter are correct.   Keep up the hard work.

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all keeping well on this damp morning.

Please continue with your maths on the White Rose website.  I have seen some great work going on.

Thank you to everybody who sent some photos in yesterday.  Scroll down the page to have a look.

Fantastic Maths and Grammar Starters, Nicole. Well done!

Some excellent work, Oliwier.  Slime making looks very messy!

Well done, Sophia.  Lots of great work and you managed to correctly complete the spelling challenge.  I hope you enjoyed learning about Benjamin Zephaniah.  He is certainly an interesting person.

Great work, Jessica,  An excellent story using all the steps to success.  I really like your simile and subordinating conjunctions.

Fantastic work, Amelia.  You have worked really hard to complete all the daily work and you hve created an incredible bag using Mrs Kay’s instructions.  I know she will be really impressed.  I hope they weren’t your best jeans that you cut up!

I have just received the message below from Mrs Kay so thought i would share it with you.

Hi Amelia

Thank you for your email. I was even more impressed with your bag than my own. The photos are brilliant. Send them on to Mr. Cook.  It’s so nice to know you and your mum working together on my activities.  We’ll have to share some ideas for sewing club when we get back to school. I don’t have a sewing machine, but am tempted to invest in one after seeing yours. I’ve ordered a book full of recycling ideas and will post a new challenge when it arrives.  Take care Amelia. Stay safe and carry on creating.
Mrs. Kay

Tuesday 28th April

Amelia R, please see the message below that I have just received from Mrs Kay.

Hi Amelia

Love Mrs.Kay X

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are all keeping safe.

Please continue with your Maths learning on decimals.   Today’s work looks at hundreths.

Hi All.
I’ve been sewing again…I do hope some of you have started your owls…Thanks for my email Sofia Robson. I really do like hearing back from people.
I’ve sent instructions on how to recycle some old jeans and create a trendy new bag. I do hope someone will have a go.
Take care out there and hopefully we’ll all be back quite soon.

Some excellent photos below of Sophia working hard but also enjoying some fun activities.

Sophia – check your last answer on the spelling challenge.  You have got the correct word but it is missing something – re-read the clue.

Some great photos of Amelia working hard and still finding time to have some fun.

Well done with the spelling challenge.

Monday 27th April

Just wanted to share some photos that I have received this morning.  I know many of you sent these in on Friday.

Some fab work from Johanan and Keanan as well.  Well done with your Maths.  I really enjoyed reading both of your instructions based on the Nintendo Wii which included all the steps to success.  It looks like you are having fun on the Wii.  I have got one at home but keep getting beat by a 5 year old on Mario Kart!

Great to hear from Riley.  I love your work on the Romans, it is fantastic.  I am also very impressed with your mural based on the Alistair Brownlee challenge.  Did you know who he was before or did you research him?  For those of you who don’t know, he is a very famous triathlete from Yorkshire who won an Olympic Gold Medal.  Triathletes take part in swimming, running and cycling – much too hard for me!  I hope you enter the competition Riley.

Lots of great work, Amelia.  I love your owl and I know Mrs Kay will be very impressed as well.

More fantastic work from Patryk.  Well done, Patryk!  You have been working hard as always.

Excellent work, Jessica.  You have worked very hard this morning.  Your last answer on the spelling challenge is incorrect.  Hint: it does begin with the letter P and has lots of the letter S in it.

Well done, Nicole!  You have been working really hard to complete your maths.  All your grammar starters are correct.  I look forward to reading your story, which is due in on Friday.

Excellent work, Sophia.  I really enjoyed reading your instructions on how to paint eggs using onion skin.  You have met all the steps and included lots of great information.  Well done!  Lots of fantastic maths and it looks as though you and Daniel enjoyed Go Noodle.  Sophia has also asked me to let you all know that she is really missing everyone and hopes to see everyone soon.

Some excellent work from Julia.  Well done, you have certainly been working hard.  A fantastic set of instructions on how to build a stick den.  You have included all the steps to success.  I love making stick dens as well.  I’m sure you will enjoy this week’s story writing task.

Hi everyone, I hope you all enjoyed the sunny weekend.

I have attached a quick, daily grammar starter in the link below looking at adverbs and verbs.  Remember that the adverb describes the verb.

EMPATHY

GENEROSITY

HONESTY

COURAGE AND BRAVERY

COMPASSION, KINDNESS AND GRATITUDE

FRIENDSHIP

 

The Friendship activity is linked to Christmas however all you need to do is link it to what is happening to us all now during the pandemic. You could create a thank you card for all the key workers, your family. The list is endless.

Please email any activities to our admin email.

 

Thank you!

Thursday 23rd April

Wow!!! Lots of AMAZING work today.  Have a look at the photos and see for yourself.

Lots of great photos, Amelia.  Well done for finishing your work on your birthday.  It looks at though you had a great time making the cake.  I hope you didn’t eat it all by yourself.  I hope mum got at least one slice.  A fantastic piece of art.  Have you had a look at the art competition that I posted about earlier today?

Great work again, Stacis.  All of your grammar starters are correct but remember to check your work.  In question 2 of the fronted adverbial starter, you have written I instead of in.  More importantly though, you have remembered all the commas and they are in the correct places.  Well done!

Well done, Sophia.  Your grammar starter is all correct and there is lots of fantastic maths.  I hope your question for dad wasn’t too hard.  Did mum get it right?  Great cartwheeling but I don’t think I will be trying that!

Great work, Julia.  I think you deserved your rest after all this maths.

Fantastic work, Patryk.  Your instructions are very detailed and include all the steps to success.  You have used some excellent fronted adverbials and subordinating conjunctions.  Don’t forget that the steps themselves need a sub-heading.  I love your Titanic model and the fact that you have shown some of the steps through your photos.  You should be very proud of your work.

Could you follow Patryk’s instructions and make your own model Titanic?

 

Hi Jessica, it’s great to see your enjoying Go Noodle.  Excellent maths work as well.

Good morning everyone!  We have a class birthday today so a very Happy Birthday to Amelia R.  I hope you have a fantastic day!

Your maths task today is putting tenths on a number line.  Remember that your weekly Literacy task is due by tomorrow.  Thank you to those who have already sent their instructions to me.  If you scroll down, you can see some photos from yesterday and the fantastic instructions sent to me from Oliwier and Stacis.

I have attached the details of an art competition in the link below.  You are being asked to design a mural for Alistair Brownlee.  If you don’t know who he is, ask your parents or search for him on the internet.  Could you do what he does?  I know I certainly couldn’t.

Wednesday 22nd April

Hope you have all had a great day.  I thought I’d share some examples of the fantastic work that has been going on.

Excellent work, Stacis!  I really enjoyed reading your instructions on how to make slime.  You have included all the steps and used some excellent adverbs.  I particularly liked that you used rapidly instead of quickly – a great word choice.  Your grammar starter looks correct but I can’t tell if you have put a comma after whispered in question 2.  Some excellent maths as well.

Great work as usual Jessica.  Your maths looks excellent although I can’t quite see all the answers from the photos.  It looks as though you enjoyed Pop See Ko in your household and it’s great to see you all took part but where was mum?  I hope you told mum that I always join in when we do it in class.

Some great work Oliwier.  Well done for solving the maths challenge using your short division.  Questions 1 and 2 of your grammar starter are perfect.  In question 3, you needed to start the speech with a capital letter.  A fantastic set of instructions using all of the steps to success.  Remember that if you use semi colons when writing your bullet point list, you need to use them for each item that is needed and a full stop after the last item.  Your instructions could have been further improved by using adverbs to give more detail about the verbs.  However, a great set of instructions.  Well done!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.  Your maths task for today is to continue with the learning on White Rose Maths.  Today’s learning is placing tenths on a place value grid.

Remember that your Literacy task is due in on Friday.  Thanks to those who have already sent me their work.  I have really enjoyed reading those I have received so far.

I have attached a link to a quick grammar starter.  You need to turn the adverbial or adverbial phrase into a fronted adverbial.  Don’t forget your comma after the fronted adverbial.

Fronted adverbials

Tuesday 21st April

Thanks to everyone who has sent some pictures in today.  There has been some fantastic work taking place.  Well done!

Lots of excellent work Sophia.  All your maths and the grammar starter is correct.  Well done!

Good work Oceanna – you have turned it into direct speech and used inverted commas correctly.  You have also remembered to put punctuation before the closing inverted comma.  Answer 2 needs a comma after whispered and answer 3 needs a comma after exclaimed.

Looks like you are keeping very busy Jessica.  Some great work – well done!

Some very detailed instructions Amelia on how to make a doll’s house.  You have used lots of fronted adverbials and included all the features of the text type.  It could have been even better if you had included some adverbs to give more details to your verbs but it is still a great piece of writing.  I think the finished doll’s house looks amazing.  I know you are really going to enjoy next week’s writing task.

Good morning everyone.  I hope you are all keeping safe and enjoying the sunshine.  It looks like another warm day.

Please see the instructions posted yesterday for your Maths work.  Your Literacy task is to continue with your instructions.  If you have already finished, you could edit your instructions by adding any missing steps to success or improving your vocabulary choice.

I have added a quick grammar starter, which can be found using the link below.

I just thought I’d post a message I received from Mrs Kay.  She is very impressed with all your fantastic work.

Just had a look at your page on the school website and I have to do a huge shout out to your children. “WHAT WONDERFUL PHOTOGRAPHS! YOU’RE ALL AMAZING AND IT’S OBVIOUS HOW HARD YOU’RE ALL WORKING!”
I’d love it if you passed on my shout out to them and posted my owl resources. I photographed each step and typed out the instructions as I worked through it and I’m sure all my wonderful sewing club would really enjoy making one and posting a photo.

Hi everyone,

I am setting you an English task this week and I would like to take your time writing it. Please send you work back by Friday 24th April to our school email address- admin@stcolumbasbradford.sch.uk. You can also send in a picture of you doing your work so I can put them onto the webpage! The task is to write a set of instructions for something you have made or done during the last few weeks.  This could be cooking, art/crafts, games or how to make something fictional such as a potion.  I have included an example which explains how to make a magic potion and has a photo of Oliver following the instructions.  I have also included some steps to success for you to include in your set of instructions.

Thank you for the photos Sophia.  It looks like you had a fun weekend.  You could use the egg decorating for your instructions.  Always fascinating to hear about different traditions.

Yesterday my brother and I helped our mum to paint eggs and make some cupcakes because today is Orthodox Easter. Today in the morning we played “Crack the Egg” this is a Russian tradition.  Sophia

 

Sunday 19th April

Good morning everyone!  Don’t panic I’m not giving you any work on a Sunday.  I thought I’d share some photos of what your class having been doing and share the answer for the Maths challenge.  Check out this page tomorrow as I will be giving you details of a fun writing task.

Maths challenge solution

There were two ways to solve this problem.  Firstly, you could have used trial and improvement whereby you keep moving the digit cards around and changing the total until you found the solution.  The second method would have been to use your division skills because you had to share the cards.  If you had added all the numbers together, they would have totalled 210 which you then divide by the number of piles which was 6.  This would have told you that each pile needed to add up to 35.  You can see the correct solution in the photos of Sophia and Amelia R. below.  I hope you enjoyed it!

Great work from Johanan and Keanan.  Looks like you had fun with the Maths challenge.

A lovely photo of Oceanna and her sister.  I loved the videos but can’t seem to add them to the webpage.  I was especially impressed with you both doing the Joe Wicks exercises but I thought dad was going to join in!

Some great pictures of Jessica working hard as always.

Well done Stacis!  Some great work and its lovely to hear from you.

Some fabulous work Sophia.  I am so impressed that you managed to solve the maths challenge.

Hi Michal, it’s great to hear from you and to see what you have been doing to keep busy.  I love lego but as quick as I build anything my little boy breaks it.

Great work from Amelia R.  Very well done for finding the solution to the Maths challenge!!!

Finally, I have added a maths challenge below.  This is one of my favourite problems.  You need to put the numbers 1 to 20 into 6 piles.  Each pile can have a different amount of numbers but the total of the numbers must be equal.  I have included some digit cards, which you could print and move around into piles.  This will keep you busy and I will let you know the answer next week.  Enjoy!

Great work Patryk and it was lovely to speak to you earlier today.

Excellent work, Jessica.  It was great to speak to you earlier and to hear that you have been working hard.  You put me to shame when you said Joe Wicks was easy – I struggle through it most mornings.

Fantastic work, Sophia.  It was lovely to hear from you today and I love the decorations on your bin!

Maths practise.  I have added a link below to some addition and subtraction of decimals.  You choose whether to try one, two or three stars.  The answers are at the bottom of the pages so you can check your own work.

Thursday 2nd April

Hello 4 Rowan,

Today I have a science task for you to do! Can you remember how we dissected a flower in our science lesson?  Well, today I would like you to dissect a flower from your garden and name its parts. I have added the parts I would like you to label below.   Once completed take a photo and send me your completed work by email.

Thursday 2nd April

Some more great photos of Sophia keeping very busy.   Thank you for your messages Sophia as I really enjoy seeing what you are doing.  Please stay safe and I’m sure 4 Rowan will be back together soon.

Mental Arithmetic Challenge

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

I have added a link for Hit the Button.  It offers much more than just times tables.  I would like you to try decimal number bonds to ten as decimals would have been our next piece of learning in Maths lessons.

Challenge your parents, brothers or sisters! Who can get the best score in your house?  Have fun and stay safe.

Mr Cook

 

Well done Sophia 

Great to see Sophia is keeping busy and helping out in the garden.  It has certainly been lovely weather to plant some seeds and now she can use her learning from her Science lessons to make sure they grow into healthy plants.

Jessica working hard and having fun!
Great to hear from Jessica and to see that she is working hard to complete her learning pack.  The roller skating looks like brilliant fun but i’m not sure that I could even stand up with them on.
Well done Sophia
More great work from Sophia and a fantastic picture of her and Daniel playing a board game.  I’m sure it’s getting very competitive in the Robson household.  A brilliant drawing of the Colosseum.  Keep up the hard work.
Hopefully see you all soon.
Julia – Could she be headlining music shows near you soon?
Some lovely pictures, Julia.  Keep practising and maybe you could perform for the class when we return.
An update from Amelia R.
As you can see from the photos, Amelia R. is working hard.  Another future music star in the making – keep up the practise.  I knew it would be Harry Potter that you are reading.  Well done Amelia and it’s lovely to hear from you.
Keep sending your pictures to     admin@stcolumbas.bradford.sch.uk
Jessica working hard on her writing task
Looks like Jessica is about to start her Literacy task writing a balanced argument about whether animals should be kept in zoos or not.  Remember to give both sides of the argument before sharing your own view and use those steps to success to help you.
Converting between fractions and decimals
I have added a link to a quick exercise converting between fractions and decimals.  The answers are on the second page so you can check how you got on.
https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-m-17248-tenths-activity-sheet
Don’t forget to practise pairs of decimal numbers that equal one or ten.  Open up the web page using the link below and click on ‘Number bonds’.  You can then choose whether to practise decimal numbers to one or ten.  Let me know your best scores and I will post them on this site.  Good Luck!
