Time To Move On

English: 06.07.2020

Good morning, Year Five.

This week, your writing will be focused largely on the move that you will soon make to Year Six. We all know that it is an important year; there are your SATs exams and preparation for high school, there are prefect duties and much, much more. It’s a time of responsibility but also of excitement.

To start the week off we would like you to cast your memories back over the last year. We spent little over half a year together in year five, but we hope you all learnt a thing or two in that time. Take a look at the attached google doc and make a note of what you have learnt and what you wish you had learnt to prepare you for year six.

Quite a simple task today, but we will be building on this reflection as the week progresses.

Good luck.

Young people are blessed with the gift of uninhibited imagination – something we want to encourage, daily. Each day, we will post an image of the day. You can use this however you wish; a free write, inspiration for a sketch… whatever you can think of. If you click on the link, it will take you the the origin website, that contains questions and challenges that may prompt you.

Topic

What better time to start a new topic than when we have all the time in the work to reflect on it? That is why we have decided to keep with current events. We would like you to research into a different person who has either faced adversity, stood for something, or had an injustice to them.
Today can you research into:

Juliet Hampton Morgan

What are they known for? What struggle did they try to overcome?
You can present your information in any way you would like, be creative and don’t forget to submit.
You could create a factfile, write a biography, make a slide show, make a comic strip, create a poster, draw or make some art to reflect on the person of the day – the possibilities are endless. Just ensure that you understand why the individual is/was important to our history.

Juliette Hampton Morgan (February 21, 1914 – July 16, 1957) was a librarian and civil rights activist in Montgomery, Alabama. The only daughter from a well-to-do white family, Morgan was an early member of the community that pushed for integration.

Good Morning Year 5! You are getting close to writing your final letter now! It is now time to get your pumped. You have the language and ideas in your head. It is now going to be time to get all of your thoughts and feelings written down.
Emeli Sande wrote this song about what was important in her life, as a way of getting her voice heard. Hopefully it will help ignite the fire in you for your writing.

Today you are going to make a plan for a letter. You are going to be writing an open letter (meant for anyone that reads it) to the people of the world. The purpose of your letter is to pour your heart out about your worries for the world in terms of the way we treat each other, the injustices we see and even the way in which we treat the planet.

You will be writing the first draft of your letter TOMORROW. In order to be ready for that, you need to plan out what you want to say and how you will show the impact of what you propose. How you plan it out is up to you but you may want to divide it into three sections: How we treat each other; how injustices are creating social divides; how we need to look after the planet.

Remember, you are NOT writing the letter today, you are just planning it so you are better prepared to write tomorrow. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail!

The best letter from each class will be posted on the school’s social media accounts and blogs so it will be reaching a big audience! Make sure you put lots of effort into your preparations!

Your plan should be done on PAPER – nothing needs to be turned in for ‘Writing’ today.

Marcus Rashford has called on the government to reconsider its decision not to extend the current food voucher scheme into the summer holidays. The scheme was set up to effectively guarantee meals to those children who would have ordinarily been reliant on free school meals during the coronavirus lockdown. He was successful.

TASK: For today’s task I would like you to read the letter attached and on the word document and do some evidence searching for me.

In the document I have written some statements. I would like you to read the letter and find the evidence to support or disprove the statement. You may wish to copy and paste from the original document to save time.

When Florence Nightingale went to the Crimea to serve in hospitals, nurses were given little respect or priority. However, she helped to change attitudes to the nursing profession and implement new practices which helped to improve mortality survival rates.

 

English

Your task today is to develop simple sentences. The simple sentences will be based around ‘The Perfect World’ stimulus that we were looking at last week. You need to think about the impact of the subject of the simple sentence and expand on it – showing how it will make the world a better place. Here is an example of what I mean:

Simple sentence –

People shouldn’t discriminate.

Expanded sentence –

People shouldn’t discriminate against others for any reason at all as it just creates divides; there is no credible excuse for it. If people didn’t discriminate, the world would be a more harmonious place.

Try to use some of the vocabulary that you learnt last week. The simple sentences that I want you to develop are as follows:

  1. People should celebrate their differences.
  2. We shouldn’t judge people on appearance.
  3. A world without evil would be great.
  4. We need bad things.
  5. We all should have equal opportunities.
  6. Injustice is detrimental to the world.

If there are any words in these sentences that you don’t understand, look them up or ask someone to help you find out.

Good Morning Year 5! As you all know Mr Sowden and I have linked the English & Guided Reading together. Over the course of the past week and this week, I will working on poetry, lyrics and letters in our reading lessons in order to enhance your vocabulary, and get you to truly understand the message you will be sending out to the work next Friday. After reading the letter today, you should hopefully be more familiar with how vital language can be in getting your voice heard. NOTE: I have shortened the letter down for you.

Marcus Rashford has called on the government to reconsider its decision not to extend the current food voucher scheme into the summer holidays. The scheme was set up to effectively guarantee meals to those children who would have ordinarily been reliant on free school meals during the coronavirus lockdown. He was successful.

TASK: For today’s task I would like you to read the letter attached:
1. Write down/copy over the 5 sentences in his letter which have impact, and explain why.
2. Look at his vocabulary, find me 5 words that stand out to you, and explain the impact of them.

For example: ‘without the kindness and generosity of the community’ this has impact as it gets the audience to reflect on how vital community is when bringing up the next generation.

Neptune: if you struggle today, you could find out meanings of unfamiliar words instead.

Today I would like you to have a go at writing a free verse poem about what the perfect world would look like. Remember, a free verse poem doesn’t rhyme – the only rules I am giving you are the following: You must write at least 4 verses; each verse should be 4 lines; every other line should start with ‘I have a dream…’ Remember to try and apply some of the new vocabulary that you have learnt this week!

Here is an example of what yours could look like:

I have a dream that everybody lives in perfect harmony,

A unity unmatched and unprecedented.

I have a dream that utopia exists endlessly,

In physical and emotional realms of time.

 

I have a dream that we are all colour blind,

That what’s inside is all that counts.

I have a dream that the sun shines upon the smiling faces

Of every human being that graces the good earth.
