Alternative Homework

Tinkercad challenge:

Can you create your own aerodynamic vehicle using tinkercad? Car, boat, plane, etc. the choice is yours so long as you consider a design that will reduce air resistance

tinkercad.com

class code is 2TA3 I8GR MC74

password is your first name with no capitals

 

Human geography challenge:

Can you research a country/city of her choice and create a short fact file/poster about that place? Maybe somewhere you have been or would love to visit. You could use technology to present information including a PowerPoint. I've uploaded a few templates to the class page to help get you going.

 

Languages

Building on from the above challenge, can you explore the language of that country? You could create a basic translation book. Google translate could help here and you can also listen to the phrases. I've also uploaded a PowerPoint of French food  - you could create a menu for a French restaurant. Failing that duolingo is a great free app for learning languages that I've used myself to try and learn Italian and German (gave up with both as I'm useless, but the app was very good). It does require an email address though. 

 

History

It is 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale and with the current national recognition for the importance of our health service/doctors and nurses it would be nice for you to research Florence Nightingale or another important historical figure involved in medicine or healthcare. Can you produce a short biography about that figure explaining why they are so important and why they are still remembered today?

Work your way through spelling frame units for your year group or attempt games that link in with current maths topics on mathsframe.

Geography

 Choose a different country to the one in the above human geography challenge and create a tourist brochure encouraging people to visit that country. Think about the countries main attractions, both physical and man-made, and try to use persuasive language to encourage them to visit that location. This would be done well using publisher so that you could copy and paste photographs of various locations onto your brochure. I have uploaded an example for ideas to the class page.   

 

PSHE

 Something that has upset and angered me recently has been the state some people have left parks in Sheffield. Endcliffe Park – where I often take my son - is regularly being used as a dumping ground and it is so sad to see. Can you create a poster (perhaps even a mascot) to help encourage and remind people to look after their environment? I’ve uploaded an example to help with ideas. 

 

Science

Design a bottle rocket with an aerodynamic design to reduce air resistance. This is a task that the current Y6 pupils completed with me when they were in Jade class, but should be fun to do again. You will need an empty plastic bottle and any materials you want to decorate and create stabilising fins.

Summer 2 Week 5 Home Learning Overview

  Maths

This week’s White Rose maths involves the usual 4 lesson activities along with answers and video links. Year 5 resources focus on angles: some activities involve a protractor, if this is something you don’t have then please skip these tasks. Year 6 resources look at ratio and proportion. I have attached week 6 of the ‘Rapid reasoning’ and ‘Fluent in Five’ PDFs for each year group.

 Reading

 There are three comprehensions, all of which have varying levels of difficulty (from one star to three stars). They include information texts on ‘Victorian inventors’ and ‘layers of the ocean’ as well as a recipe for ‘Moroccan Vegetable Tagine’.

 Literacy

 I have uploaded week 5 of the ‘El Dorado’ LitFilmFest resources, which focus on researching and planning a narrative, writing a first draft, editing it and filming your narrative. You will continue to need to use the unit overview document and eBook story, but I haven’t reloaded these documents – they can still be found on the class page under Literacy Home Learning Summer 2 Week 1 (w/c 1.6.2020). I’ve also uploaded three SPaG activity mats for each year group – these mats are differentiated in the same way as the reading comprehension tasks (from one star to three stars).

Topic

 Continuing our topic on forces, I have uploaded the ‘Focus Education’ PowerPoint – which we use as a basis for planning and delivering content again if people would like to continue to work through the science units. I have also uploaded the third lesson in the Twinkl forces resources pack which focuses on air resistance and making parachutes.

 Thank you and hope this week goes well for everyone. Please get in touch if I can help you with anything at all.

Competition winners!

Over the past two years we have undertaken a few activities with 'Never Such Innocence' a charity that works with schools across the world giving children and young people a voice on conflict. This work included the willow sculpture completed in academic year 2018-2019 for Bradfield Church and a music writing workshop completed with Bethzienna Williams. Both of these activities won awards. For their age range, the willow sculpture came in 1st place in the 'art' category, while the music writing piece came second in the 'song' category.

 The special Digital Winners Booklet which they have produced to celebrate these amazing pieces of work can be found at the link below.

https://indd.adobe.com/view/e7a08bca-705a-48fa-9089-c789e719c5aa

 You can see the willow sculpture on page 12 and listen to the music on page 20. 

Summer 2 Week 3 Home Learning Overview

 Maths

This week’s White Rose maths involves the usual 4 lesson activities along with answers and video links. Year 5 resources focus on percentages and decimals whilst Year 6 resources look at algebra and measure. I have attached week 4 of the ‘Rapid reasoning’ and ‘Fluent in Five’ PDFs for each year group.

 Reading

 There are three comprehensions, all of which have varying levels of difficulty (from one star to three stars). They include information texts on The Windrush generation and Captain Tom Moore and a fictional diary entry of a World War 2 evacuee.  

 Literacy

 I have uploaded week 3 of the ‘El Dorado’ LitFilmFest resources, which focus on planning a diary entry and beginning to write the first draft. You will continue to need to use the unit overview document and eBook story, but I haven’t reloaded these documents – they can still be found on the school page under ‘Literacy Home Learning Summer 2 Week 1 (w/c 1.6.2020)

I’ve also uploaded three SPaG activity mats for each year group – these mats are differentiated in the same way as the reading comprehension tasks (from one star to three stars).

Topic

 Our topic for this half term is called ‘Does everything that goes up always come down?’ and is based around the text ‘The Man Who Walked Between the Towers.’ I have uploaded the ‘Focus Education’ PowerPoint – which we use as a basis for planning and delivering content. The science aspect of this topic can be done without the text; however, the literacy parts do rely on it. The text is by Mordicai Gerstein and can be found cheaply second hand on amazon or for £4.61 on kindle. You are welcome to work through the units in the PowerPoint at your own pace, but I would recommend one science unit per week. I will be uploading Twinkl forces resources alongside the unit for more breadth of curriculum coverage. Let me know if you want any further help with this.

There is a quiz found at https://www.twinkl.co.uk/go/resource/forces-multiple-choice-quiz-tg-436 which would be brilliant to do as a pre-assessment before beginning the topic. How much do they already know?

 Thank you and hope this week goes well for everyone. Please get in touch if I can help you with anything at all.

Summer 2 Week 1 Overview

 

Maths

 This week, maths resources once again come from White Rose and are accompanied by video links to watch before attempting activity sheets. Year 5 resources focus on fractions whilst Year 6 resources look at percentages. I have once again attached the ‘Rapid reasoning’ PDFs for each year group, but also added an extra document this week (also from Third Space Learning) entitled ‘Fluent in Five’ which looks at practising basic skills.

 Reading

 There are three comprehensions, all of which have varying levels of difficulty (from one star to three stars). Texts are on cyclist Mike Hall, earthquakes and Usain Bolt.

 Literacy

This week I have uploaded the resources for a unit consisting of a series of cross-curricular writing lessons based on the digital book, ‘El Dorado’! This is a project produced by LitFilmFest which culminates in a swash-buckling pirate, treasure-hunting adventure, that can be simply written and videoed at home. Please find the resources below under the title ‘Literacy Home Learning summer 2 week 1’. For more information on LitFilmFest please search for https://litfilmfest.com/about/about-us/

Top of the Rocks - Peak Edge Times Tables Rock Stars Competition Results

Well done to everyone who took part in the Times tables Rock Stars Peak Edge Competition. We did incredibly well! Although we were last in total points, we were first in points per individual – hence compensating for our small size. Acorn class also came first in class average score whilst Ivy class came fourth in this category. We also had three children who came in the top ten pupils in the academy. Lexi came first with a whopping 13,081 points! In seventh came Thomas with 7,323 points. Rounding out the top ten was Gabriel coming in tenth with 6,157 points. Well done in particular to these individuals. Very proud of our school.

Maths

 This week, maths resources once again come from White Rose and are accompanied by video links to watch before attempting activity sheets. Year 5 resources revisit two aspects of maths: area and fractions. These are both areas the children have been taught in previously and so it is an opportunity to return and to see what they can remember. For Year 6, it is a continued return to fractions. This week looking at multiplying and dividing fractions.

I have also attached ‘Rapid Reasoning’ pdfs for each year group. These documents come from education company Third Space Learning and include year group specific place value objectives in a reasoning context. The documents provide short daily practice and come with answers too.

 I hope the ebook from OxfordOwl.com worked well for you this week. Just in case it didn’t, I have returned to PDF documents which can be printed out. There are three comprehensions, all of which have varying levels of difficulty (from one star to three stars). Texts are on the FA cup, Wimbledon and Ramadan – all things that are or would be happening around this time of year.

 Writing and Grammar

 I hope many if you found the fantasy unit helpful last week and that children have created their characters, settings and written their introductions. This week I have added the second part of the unit looking at writing the rest of their stories. There are WAGOLLS for each story mountain section and a flipchart PDF to work through. I have built in opportunities for grammar within the flipchart and these include writing speech and passive voice. The year 5 pupils haven’t yet been taught about passive voice but there is a very detailed PowerPoint from twinkl that I have uploaded along with 4 activities to support and consolidate learning.      

Topic

 This week is lesson 4 of the Antarctica unit produced by the Royal Geographical Society. Now that locality, place and physical processes are established, the next phase for pupils is to understand the key aspects of human geography in this extreme environment. Comparing ‘then and now’ children can explore the ‘shaping of the world’ and access to this remote landscape. Using table top maps in conjunction with timelines, children plot and role play the journey of the expedition.  Using geographical skills such as keys and classification the timeline can be brought alive, giving consideration to all elements of the expedition. All resources required are uploaded below under the heading ‘Topic Home Learning Summer 1 Week 6’.

Thank you and hope this week goes well for everyone. Please get in touch if I can help you with anything at all.

A message for Year 6!

Today was meant to be the start of SATS week with both Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling papers taking place. Instead, we’re all at home.

There will be a mix of emotions for most of you: relief and joy that you don’t have to sit these exams, but perhaps also a sadness and emptiness that you aren’t able to show what you can do.

 Exams are important and play an important role in education, but they are not all that matters.

Therefore, although you will not have SATS results to evidence what you have achieved during Key Stage 2, I want you to think about all the successes you have had and the pride you should have in becoming the person you are today. Think about the sporting events you have taken part in; the support you have given friends when they have needed it; the places you have been; the strong friendships you have formed; the creativity you have shown; and the fun you have had along the way.

 Every year I wish that there wasn’t the cloud of SATS looming over us, yet I did not want SATS to be cancelled this way. These are strange times for everyone and I hope you are doing your best to look after and support your parents as much as you can. Some of you have parents who are working whilst also trying to help teach you. This is incredibly difficult, but I know you appreciate everything they are doing for you. Your education is now in your hands more than it has ever been, so make sure you try to use this time well. Keep things ticking over, revisit things you have learnt in the past and do what you can to keep yourself challenged and engaged. I will continue to set you work to try to help you achieve this, but I do not expect you to get through everything I send. Choose activities you think will benefit you or that you think you’ll enjoy. If there is something you want to learn that I haven’t set you or recommended personally, please go for it! Your teachers (whoever they may be by the time schools are open again) will do their very best to bring you back up to speed.

Miss you all

Mr Beagle

Top of the Rocks - Peak Edge Times Tables Rock Stars Competition

Teachers within the Peak Edge Academy have organised a Peak Edge academy TTRS tournament, which will run for a week from tomorrow (11th May to 18th May). 

 Children will not have to do anything differently. They should continue to use any game type they would usually play. If your child hasn't used TTRS during lockdown, this would be the perfect time to get them to access this resource assuming you have the technology available. The attached poster gives a brief outline of the competition. 

Good luck.

Summer 1 Week 5

Maths

 This week, maths resources once again come from White Rose and are accompanied by video links to watch before attempting activity sheets. Year 5 resources return to multiplication and division before finishing with calculating perimeter. These are all areas the children have been taught in previously and so it is an opportunity to return and to see what they can remember. For Year 6, it is a return to fractions. Fractions make up a large chunk of the upper KS2 maths curriculum and it is important to revise this unit.

Reading

 The comprehension packs I uploaded in week 3 remain available to anyone who hasn’t used them all yet. Additionally, I have created some questions and answers based on an eBook that can be found on the oxford owl website if you have the technology available.

Step 1: Use your internet browser to visit www.oxfordowl.co.uk then click on ‘Class Login’ near the top of the page.

Step 2:Login using username: bradfielddungworth and password: ivyclass

Step 3: Select the ebooks ‘my bookshelf’ section of the home page.

Step 4: Search for ‘Exploring the Deep’.

Step 5: Read the text and try answering the questions I have uploaded on the school blog. Your answers don’t need to be written down. Explaining your answer to a family member would be great if you’re able to.

 Writing

 A couple of years ago I produced a writing unit on the fantasy genre as we were reading The Hobbit at the time. Quite a few of Ivy class enjoy this genre and so I thought they could have a go at it over the next couple of weeks. I have uploaded PDF versions of flipcharts I used at the time but have adapted. I’ve also included support materials including WAGOLLs to give children ideas of what to aim for etc. This unit will last 2 weeks and so I will upload half this week and the other half next week. This week will focus on character creation, setting description and beginning their introduction.   

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling

 Please continue to access either spelling frame or Oxford Owl Read Write Inc resources to keep up with spelling practice. I have uploaded two PowerPoints focusing on antonyms and synonyms. One PowerPoint is a refresher and the other is a quiz. I have kept the grammar light this week as there is a lot of writing to work on.

Topic

 This week is lesson 3 of the Antarctica unit produced by the Royal Geographical Society. During this lesson pupils become immersed in ‘physical geography’. ‘Perplexing Poles’ enables pupils to use a variety of sources, locating the north and south poles, and explaining the term ‘ant-arctic.’ Pupils then consider the view of the world from each of the poles. Use of simple climate maps establishes hot and cold areas across the globe. Pupils consider time zones at the Pole in addition to mountain ranges, volcanoes and the ever changing ice mass throughout the seasons. A challenge and assessment activity asks pupils to decide what time of year they would plan their expedition and how they would prepare for the weather conditions.

Thank you and hope this week goes well for everyone.

Mr Beagle

Summer 1 Week 4 Overview

Maths

 This week, maths resources once again come from White Rose and are accompanied by video links to watch before attempting activity sheets. I hope that these videos are helpful, but if not don’t hesitate to get in touch. Year 6 lessons involve angles in quadrilaterals and other regular polygons, as well as two lessons focusing on problem solving. Year 5 lessons focus on addition and subtraction involving decimals.

Reading

 Due to the size of the comprehension packs I uploaded last week. I’m not uploading any more yet as I don’t won’t to overwhelm anyone with resources. I would recommend focusing on books of your choice if you have used these resources already. If you are interested in extra reading material then please get in touch with me or the school and I will happily find something for you to use.

 Writing

 The unit uploaded last week around the short film ‘the lighthouse’ contained 10 lessons and so I’m assuming most of you will still be working through these this week too. However, I have uploaded a literacy pack (also from literacy shed) that I have been using in school with children of key workers. This pack is smaller, but still has many opportunities for writing at length if you choose to take that option. This smaller pack is also based on a short film; this film is entitled ‘Catch A Lot’.

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling

 Please continue to access either spelling frame or Oxford Owl Read Write Inc resources to keep up with spelling practice. I have uploaded a PowerPoint and activity from Twinkl to help children revise using punctuation for parenthesis.

Topic

The topic activity I've uploaded this week allows you to apply last week's previous learning of latitude and longitude and to ehlp link this to polar explorers including Shackleton. This lesson should build on what they have already learnt and read about Shackleton. The lesson provides the opportunity to plot and flesh out timelines and combine spatial and temporal knowledge. One of the lesson’s activities involves a ‘race’ – this activity should still be worth undertaking despite the lack of other pupils to race against. 

Thank you

Mr Beagle

Tinkercad castle update

Please find below a copy of Lillay's castle. Well done Lillay! This looks amazing.

Below Lillay's castle is a picture of my castle with the 'solid' and 'hole' options highlighted. A few of you have asked how to remove parts from your 3D shapes. You need to choose another shape and turn it into a 'hole'. When you overlap a 'hole' shape and a 'solid' shape, it creates an empty space.

Peer Mediator Conference video

 Although it feels like a lifetime ago, at the end of January a number of children from Ivy class - who act as Peer Mediators in the playground - visited Sheffield University for a conference celebrating all of the fantastic things we do at Bradfield Dungworth and to take ideas from other schools. Below is the video posted on YouTube - see if you can spot any of our class in the video.

Tinkercad challenge

 Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to build a castle/fortress. Put your design skills to the test? Can you add a drawbridge? How about arrow slits in case of attack? How about a moat? There is a prize for the castle that I think is the best.

Follow the link and class code below. Remember your nickname is your first name with no capital letter. For the Jessicas, you also need to add your surname initial with no capital letter.

I think the answer is 117 degrees because you take 63 away from 180 because it is a straight line and a straight line is 180 degrees

Acids and Alkalis

On Tuesday 10th March we had Jack from the AMRC back in with us. This time, however,  we weren't looking at using tinkercad for 3D printing. We did some work around acids and alkalis. We got to taste very weak acids and alkalis. We also talked about the PH scale and used acids and alkalis to make a neutral solution. We found out that toothpaste is a weak alkali which helps counteract the acid created from saliva mixing with sugar. 

 We talked about how, although soap is an alkali, we can't use a strong alkali on our skin as it would be corrosive. 

Human Development

As part of our topic on life cycles, we have been thinking about human development. Last week we thought about just how rapid development can be during infancy and we also considered prenatal development too. Below is a powerpoint we created with some key changes that occur during infancy. Feel free to download the presentation and add photos of yourslef at each stage.  

Earlier in the topic, we also used ageing apps to think about how we may look when we are older. See how Ivy class teacher Mr Beagle might look.

I learnt that when they were about to get on the ship they would get stripped and checked if they had a disease but if they did they would have to go back to there home . also if they were checked on the ship and they were ill they would of got thrown off board.

Dora Jones(less than a year ago)

I really enjoyed the trip to the house of William Wilberforce, first we looked at some old artefacts. Then we had lunch, before making African masks. I had a great time and would happily go again!

Alice Rosa Ferguson(less than a year ago)

I learnt that women killed their children as a rebellion and William Wilberforce was the founder of the RSPCA.

Richard(less than a year ago)

I leaned that William Wilberforce was a religious person

Moon phases

Continuing with our space topic, we planned and carried out an experiment to investigate the phases of the Moon.  All we needed was a torch, a polystyrene Moon and a very dark classroom.   We worked scientifically in our groups and made sure we checked our results by repeating the experiment.  Finally, we made a Moon phase dial to record our findings.

Anglo Saxon Settlement

To finish off our topic of Anglo Saxons, we have built our own settlement. Each group in class had a specific Anglo Saxon home to build for a specific job. In our village lives: a carpenter, a jeweller, a potter, a weaver, two farmers and a warrior. The other building you will find in our settlement (right at its heart) is the great hall.

End of PGL

What a fantastic time we had at PGL this year! Ivy class represented Bradfield Dungworth extremely well with their positivity, enthusiasm, teamwork, behaviour and manners. They were a pleasure to take for the week. The weather wasn't the best but we rarely heard anyone complain and everyone got stuck in with activities and got into the spirit of residential. Well done Ivy class!

I enjoyed tunnel trail and trapeze at PGL. I enjoyed tunnel trail because it was fun and there were a lot of tunnels and i like tunnels . I enjoyed trapeze because people helped me to the top.

My favourite activity was giant swing because when you got to the top you had to pull a string on your own to swing back and forth. My favourite night a was splash because our water balloon survived when it got dropped down the abbsailing tower. The food was really nice. Also our instructor Elliot was the best instructor in the world.

I enjoyed PGL because of the exhilarating activities. my favourite activity was tunnel trail. Tunnel trail is a big tunnel system under man-made ground and you basically do what you want.

Rapid Recall mats

 We recently invested in rapid recall mats from Year 1 to Year 6. They enable us to practice key skills on a regular basis and are perfect for spaced learning. 

Anglo-Saxon board games

 We recently learnt all about law and order in Anglo-Saxon times and compared it with modern day British law and order. We learnt about punishments including 'trial of ordeal' and 'wergild' which compensated victims and their families. We applied what we had learnt to create a law and order themed Anglo-Saxon board game. Some pictures of the games can be found below and the games can be found on display in our classroom.

Rounding

While learning how to round numbers, we stumbled across a video with an interesting approach to how to round. It involved imagining a number line as a hill and it really helped with some of the children's understanding. Find a link to the video below as well as pictures of the children's whiteboards.

Kensuke's Kingdom Island Projects

 For book study this half term, we have reading Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. Whilst the Year 6 children took their SATS, the Year 5 pupils took on a range of tasks based around the book. These tasks included creating their own version of the Peggy Sue and creating their own version of the island that Michael is stranded on. We researched islands in the Coral Sea and illustrations from the text to help us imagine how it might look. 

Willow Weaving

 Willow weaving was very fun. We practiced with willow balls to eventually build up and make something as precise as this; it was amazing! Firstly, we had to collect sticks for weaving. Then we began weaving the balls using an over and under technique taught to us by Caroline. Eventually we weaved the balls into the shape of a soldier.

Badminton

During this year, different classes throughout school (including Ivy class) have had the opportunity to be taught by Martin - a badminton expert. The kids have learnt a lot and have really enjoyed the sport so we have invested in some new, easy-to-assemble badminton nets. Here are some pictures of the nets in use. 

One amazing and delicious bit of homework!

Maths Challenge Homework

It has been fantastic to see so many of you having a go at your maths homework challenges over last few weeks.

Y6 recently had a very difficult problem (which even some parents struggled with), but was made easier through use of bar modelling. Below is the question we found hard  - question 4 - and a helpful video filmed involving William and Willow.  

Home/School learning books

 Just a reminder that children should be reading and recording it in their learning book at least five times a week. Year 6 children are trusted to fill these in themselves but we do ask that parents check and sign them at least once a week. 

A big shout out to Charlie who has recorded reading in his book every day since the start of school in September! Well done Charlie!
