Andover Church of England Primary School

Striving for Excellence in a happy,secure and Christian environment

Week Beginning 07.12.20

Monday English - Use the learning videos and games from the following BBC bitesize page to remind you where we should use capital letters and full stops: 
Tuesday English - Choose one of the images below to inspire you. Show that you know how to write a narrative (fictional story) by creating a narrative opening for one of the pictures below: 

Wednesday English - 
Choose one of the images below to inspire you. Show that you know how to write a narrative (fictional story) by creating a narrative opening for one of the pictures below: 


Thursday English - Now that you have practised writing narratives and learning the story of Rumpelstiltskin, think about how your version of the story may end. Does the Queen send her guards to capture Rumpelstiltskin? Does Rumpelstiltskin steal the Queen's baby? Does she manage to guess his name? Does the Queen try to pay him to go away with gold? You decide! 
Draw a picture for each part of the story to help you organise your ideas so that you can write the story tomorrow. 

Friday English - Today you should write the whole narrative of Rumpelstiltskin, using the story you have learned to retell last week and adding your alternative ending from your plan yesterday. Remember to include capital letters, full stops and finger spaces when writing your story. Send your finished narratives to your teachers to read. 


In maths this week we will be learning more about addition and subtraction. 
Monday Maths - Use the "wheel of names" website to enter some numbers and create a random number generator. Stick to numbers between 0-30 to begin with: 

In this game you will try to make the number which is selected using only numbers 0-9: 
                                                            0   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9

This means you will have to use your addition and subtraction skills to help you. For example, if I wanted to make the number 19, I might use the following calculations: 
5 + 4 = 9   7 + 3 = 10   9 + 10 = 19. 
To make this game more challenging you could use larger numbers 0-100 and only use the numbers 0-9 once. To make this game less challenging you could use numbers 0-15 and use the numbers 0-9 as many times as you need to. 

Tuesday Maths - Continue to practise your addition and subtraction skills by playing the game "fruit splat": You can choose which numbers you work with and whether you want to time yourself or play in "relaxed mode." 

Wednesday Maths - How Many Ways? Today you will find out how many ways you can make the following numbers:

                    5   15    20   25   50   100   13   16    12   55
Write down as many subtraction and addition calculations as you can for each number. Which number was the easiest and which was the hardest? For the number 20 you should be able to record all of your number bonds to 20 (0 + 20 = 20, 1 + 19 = 20, 2 + 18 = 20... and so on.) 

Thursday Maths - Use the game "Snowman Sums" to make two-digit numbers using the coals. How many different ways can you make the number the snowman is asking for?


Friday Maths -
Use the "word problems" document below to apply your addition and subtraction learning from this week. Remember to use the hundred square and drawings to help you find the answers.


Monday Topic - DT: In DT this term we will be designing, making and decorating our own Christmas biscuits. Using the power point below, find out more about food hygiene and safety. Then create your own poster sharing your ideas for keeping safe when cooking. 
Once you have done this, think about the biscuit cutter shapes you have at home - or you may prefer to just use a circle - and create a design for your biscuit, thinking about the colour icing you will use and any sweets, toppings or sprinkles which you could also use. 


Tuesday Topic - PSHE: Think about all the different ways we have learned to keep safe this term. Talk to your adult at home about all of the different people who you can go to if you are ever in an unsafe situation or worried about something. Create a mindmap to show your teachers all of the different people who can help you. 
(Hint: this could include people from your family, people from school or people from the emergency services.)                                                                                                                          


Wednesday Topic - Geography: Building on our work from last week, reflect on the similarities and differences between England and Kenya. Now ask an adult to help you find out more about a different country. You could use google, youtube videos, the local library, encyclopedias or ask relatives about different countries they have been to. Draw a picture and write some sentences to explain the similarities and differences between your chosen country and England/the UK. 
Some suggestions for countries to study: Canada, Mongolia, Australia, Iceland, Thailand. 


Thursday Topic - Science:


Last week you were learning about food chains. This week I would like you to think about the living things that live in your garden or the local park and draw a food chain for this habitat.

Look at the attached sheet to help you - don't forget to use arrows to show what living thing eats what!

Make sure you only use living things that can be found in this country!


Food Chain example

Friday Topic: RE


Last week we looked at an image of a candle holder. This week I would like you to find out what the candle holder is for and what it symbolises.

Use the website link The Advent Wreath - YouTube 

Watch the video and then have a go at making your own advent wreath. You could use a paper plate as a base and find some things around your house/garden to decorate it.

If you don't have anything to make one, try designing your own by drawing it!
