Sussex Virtual School Games- Can we beat St Marks's??!!!

Why not try competing against other schools, like St Mark's, in the Sussex Virtual School Games? This is a sports challenge that you can do from home and then give in your scores to see if we can do better than other schools. So far there have been hockey, tennis, football and gymnastics activities. The new challenge for this week (week beginning 1st June) is netball and basketball!

Sign up at https://www.activesussex.org/virtual/ to find out what the challenges are and to submit your scores!

Currently St Mark's are way ahead of us, as more of their school are doing the challenge and have scored more points! This week, can we all give it a go and beat them? That would make Mr Chick so happy!!

If you want to send a picture of you doing a challenge, send it to our school email address homelearning@caw.brighton-hove.sch.uk.

Good luck and thanks for representing City Academy Whitehawk so brilliantly!

Maths 4.06.20

How did you get on with measuring capacity and volume?

Remember, Capacity is the full amount of substance that a container can hold. Volume is how much substance is measured in the container at one time.

Today we are going to look at comparing capacity and volumes using symbols < and >. Just like we did when comparing mass! When comparing volumes, it's important that you look at the unit of measure. Is it in l or ml? If the liquid is in different containers, you must check the unit of measure first!

First - watch this video. Remember, the < symbol is like a crocodile that likes to eat the greater volume! Make sure you scroll down and have a go at the games underneath!

Next - compare capacities within your house. You could find real things in your home measured in l or ml (can of drink? bottle of drink? juice?) and compare the capacities using > or <. Or you could use containers, fill them with water however much you want, and then compare capacities by pouring the liquid into a measuring jug to measure. 

Last - have a go at this worksheet! The tasks get trickier as you go through. Be a have a go horse and challenge yoursel! 

Writing 4.06.20

Today we are in WORD JAIL! 

The words in jail today are: funny, tasty, boring and sad.

First - pick an adjective and type it into https://www.thesaurus.com/ or find it in a thesaurus if you have one at home!

Next - write down all of the synonyms for the adjective. Synonyms means all the other words that mean the same thing. 

Last - have a go at using your new adjectives in sentences. You could try and write a story or description using these words throughout.

Challenge - do all four words!

Reading 04.06.20

Have a look through this booklet and choose an activity to do. You could use a book at home or one of the stories on Purple Mash!

On Purple Mash there is a wide range of different extracts from books and questions to answer. 

First - Log into Purple Mash.

Next - Click on 'Serial Mash'. 

Here you will need to choose your age range of books. Have a look at Diamonds, Emeralds and Sapphires. Think about your reading scale for AR and pick a book you think if a good level for you. 

Last - Pick the next chapter you've got to and read it. Pick from the range of different questions and activities to do based on the book you've read!

Over the upcoming weeks you can continue to read through the chapters and answering the questions.

*Top Tip* - Make sure you think carefully about what your interests are, what you might enjoy reading and make sure you pick something that challenges you enough! I always prefer reading books and answering questions on things that I love, like the outdoors, music and books that are funny!

Science 04.06.20

We hope you enjoyed looking at your shadow at different times of the day this week! 

Today we are going to look at different materials and how the shadow varies.

First - read this powerpoint. 

Next - write down what an opaque, transparent and translucent material is. Now go around your house and collect different objects and materials! Don't forget to check with your grown ups and put things back where they belong afterwards!

Last - Using a torch (remember the torch app on iPhones/iPads!) organise your objects into 'opaque, transparent or translucent'. Think especially about shadows when you're doing this. Are any shadows being formed? Is the light shining through?

Paragon 04.06.20

Last lesson you researched technology and hopefully now have a good understanding of what technology is and some examples of it.

We use technology every day all over the world and our whole world depends on it!

Just like lots of things, we have to be aware of the impact of technologoy on the environment. Therefore, people are inventing 'renewable energy' sources, an eco-friendly way to create energy for the world to use! 

First - watch this video.  

Next - research renewable energy. What is renewable energy? What are some examples of renewable energy?

Last - can you find out what renewable energy sources are used in Brighton? You may have spotted some before... 

Research a little more into Brighton's off shore windfarm. How many wind turbines are there? How many miles is it from Brighton seafront? What is the energy collected from them used for? 

Maths 01.06.20

We are moving onto looking at volume and capacity, which we measure in litres (l) and millilitres (ml). Capacity is the full amount of substance that a container can hold. Volume is how much substance is measured in the container at one timePlastic water bottles. Flat containers different capacities for ...

First - Go on a capacity treasure hunt around your house! How many different objects can you find with the same capacity. Are they different shapes? For example, in my flat I found a bottle of milk that had a 2litre capacity and a 2litre bottle of Coca Cola!

Next - Have a go at one of these worksheets. Write your answers in litres and milliltres e.g. 2 L 200 ml. Remember that incrememts means intervals (the little lines going up the containers).

Last - Try this game called Capacity Countdown! 

Writing 01.06.20

We are using pobble again for our writing today with an ocean theme!

First - Follow this link to see a bigger version of this picture...Next - Have a look through these worksheets and choose an activity you like the look of! 

Last - Challenge yourself to write a setting description of an underwater world! Think back to our rainforest writing... what can you see and hear under the sea?

Our new Science topic is light! 

Shadow clipart 6 » Clipart Station

First - Watch this video to learn a little bit about shadows and light.

Next - Can you stand at a window and make a shadow with your body or an object? How does your shadow change when you move around the room?

Last - If you have chalk and can go outside, draw around someone else's shadow! Can you stand in the same spot and draw around the shadow at different times in the day? Or you could use a toy beside a window and draw around its shadow using paper. How does a shadow move and change as the sun moves in the sky?

Paragon 01.06.20

Our new Paragon topic is... Britain! We will be looking at technology and how this has changed how people live.

TECH talk (communicating via technology) - Therapy Works Tulsa

First - Do you remember what chronological means? It means the order that events happen! Write a list of what you have done so far today in chronological order. For example: first I woke up, then I got out of bed...

Next - Can you find out when these important technologies were invented: airplane, TV, radio, internet, iPads, iPhones. Can you put them in chronological order on a timeline that looks like this one? The dates will be different on yours though!

Last - Have a go at the first ever computer game called Pong

Maths 21.05.20

Today we are continuing adding g and kg and will also be doing some subtracting! Remember that when we subtract, the final number is always smaller than the number we started with.

First - Do a little bit more practice converting units of measure (grams and kilograms). Go around your home and collect 5 – 10 items that are measured in grams (g) or kilograms (kg). You can find this information on the back of the tin/bag/jar!

Heinz Could Be Launching Mixed Tins Of Baked Beans And Spaghetti Hoops

For example, in my flat I found: A bag of flour = 1kg, tin of beans = 415g, pasta = 500g, bag of potatoes = 1.5kg, jar of Marmite = 250g.

Can you convert these units of measurement? For example, the bag of flour is 1kg = 1000g. Challenge: find some millilitre/litre items and convert them (have a look in the bathroom for these). It’s the same rule: 1000ml = 1l.

Next - Have you been missing doing our chilli challenges in Maths lessons? Of course you have! Pick some of these questions to to try. They are a combination of adding and subtracting g and kg.

Last - If you feel like some extra challenge, here are some word problems. They are a combination of reading scales and adding/subtracting mass.

Writing 21.05.20

We are going to do a recap on inverted commas. We use this punctuation to show when people are talking in our writing. Speech is tricky to get the hang of, but be a persevering penguin and keep going!

First - Watch this video to remember what they are. Test your understanding of inverted commas with the quiz at the bottom of the page.

Next - You have 2 options! Either complete this worksheet to fill in the correct punctuation, or go on Purple Mash and search for 'direct speech'. Have a go at some of these activities:

If you're feeling like a real Learning Lion, do the worksheet AND the Purple Mash activities!

Last - Here are some funny pictures of animals. Your task is to write the conversation that is happening! You might want to use the pictures as ideas for a longer story that you could write over the half term holiday. Check that every sentence you write has:

- Capital letters in the right place

- Inverted commas to open and close the speech

- Interesting ‘said’ words to show how the words are being said

Reading 21.05.20

Paragon 21.05.20

Over half term, your challenge is to create an Arctic information poster or leaflet! Imagine you are making it for a younger child who doesn’t know anything, or an alien who has just landed on Earth and needs to know all about it! You might want to do some research before starting. Here are some things you could include:

  • Geography: Where is the Arctic? What countries make up the Arctic?
  • Climate and weather: What’s the temperature like there and why? What’s the weather like? How much daylight is there in the winter/summer?
  • People: What are the people called who live in the Arctic? How is their way of life similar/different to yours? What do they eat or do for fun?
  • Travel: How do people travel around in the Arctic? How could I get there from England?

Make it as creative as you want – you could include some sketching or painting to show the animals or Northern Lights that can be seen in the Arctic!

Maths 14.05.20

Today we're going to be looking at how to comparing mass & weight in mixed units using symbols <>. You will have seen these symbols before in year 1 and 2 when comparing numbers. We look at these symbols as a crocodile mouth that always likes to eat the bigger number. So, 8 > 3. It looks like the crocodile mouth is eating the bigger number! This means that 8 is greater than 3.

We will be using the symbols in exactly the same way with comparing weight and mass! E.g. 110g < 500g or 1000kg > 250kg. These weights are more simple to compare because they're in the same units. The first example are both in grams. The second example are both in kilograms. So what do we do if the units are different? This is called mixed units.

There are 1000g in 1kg. We measure larger things in kg, and smaller things in grams. So, I'd weigh a car in kg but a plate in g! What is greater in weight, 200g or 1kg?

First - Watch this video. 

Next - Write a list/draw pictures of 10 objects, some smaller and some larger. Can you make up the weight in kg or g, keeping them whole numbers? E.g. draw a picture of a bag of flour, pretend its 400g, draw a picture of an elephant, pretend its 20kg. Make sure you're using both g and kg, so we can compare them! Then, pick 2 of the objects you drew and compare the lengths using > or <. E.g. The flour (400g) < The elephant 20kg. This means that the mass of the flour is less than the elephant.

Last - Have a go at this worksheet!

Writing 14.05.20

Today we're reminding ourselves about prepositions, what they are and why writers use them in their writing.

First - Watch this video.  Can you write what the point of a preposition is? Can you write a list of as many prepositions as you can think of?

Next - Have a go at this worksheet! Can you highlight all the prepositions used in the description?

Last - Have a go at the second worksheet on the link above (just scroll down the PDF). Can you draw a picture of a room in your house and then use the prepositions to write sentences describing your room? 

Challenge - Can you write an exciting setting description based on this picture? If you want to find your own picture on google images, go for it!

Use your imagination and creativity to explain the position of things in this photo. (e.g. beyond the mountains...)

Science 14.05.20

This week we'd like you to have a go at working scientifically. 

Can you try and complete this experiment?

Which solids dissolve in water?

First, think carefully about the word dissolve. What do you think this means?

I'm SURE you are missing our silly songs and videos we sing along to in school..! Here's a fun video to begin thinking about dissolving.

Can you record your experiment in the recording sheet? Remember, in Science we first, make thoughtful predictions. What solid do you predict will dissolve the best? What solid do you predict will not dissolve? Once you've made a prediction, complete the experiment (this is your method). In the method draw a picture and write about what you did. You could use first, next, last or other time connectives to explain it in chronological order (time order). Don't forget to last, write up your results! These are the most important part as it tells us what you found out! 

Challenge - Can you write some 'what if' questions?

Eg. What if I used milk instead of water?

What if I put more teaspoons of the solid in?

Paragon 14.05.20

Our Paragon topic is the Arctic! Pick an activity from our home learning grid.

Maths 11.05.20

This week we will be continuing with our new topic ‘Mass and Capacity’. It's really important to practice before we move onto capacity! Watch this video to remind yourself of metric measurements. 

It’s really important in this unit that we understand the difference between mass and weight. Watch this video to begin to understand the difference.

Mass is the amount of matter something is made out of (measured in grams). E.g. the sugar is 200g. Weight is how hard gravity is pulling the object down (measured in newtons). We tend to use ‘weight’ term more often than ‘mass’, but actually when we measure our weight on scales, we are measuring our body mass!

First, can you make a list of all the different places/times you may use scales to measure something? (Weighting at the doctors, at a sweet shop etc).

Next, go and explore around your house and collect 10 different items. Thinking really carefully about weight and mass, pretend you are your own balance scale and see if you can estimate which items are heavier and lighter. Challenge – can you order all 10 items in order from heaviest to lightest? We know estimations can sometimes be tricky – be a have a go horse!

Last - Do you have scales? If you have weighing scales, use the items you have collected and have a go at reading the scales and measuring the items mass. Don’t worry about being really accurate – can you round the mass to the nearest interval? (Maybe it’s closer to 450 than 500g). Challenge – can you order the measurements?

I don’t have scales! – That’s fine! Use this worksheet to work out the mass on a measuring scale. Can you have a go at reading and recording the mass?

Writing 11.05.20

This week we are learning what homophones are!

Watch this video to learn about homophones. 

So - what is a homophone?

Can you write a list of as many different homophones that you can think of? Two words that sound the same, with different meanings (e.g. great and grate). Challenge - are there any with more than two words that sound the same?

Here are lots of homophones worksheets. Pick one, two or as many as you want and have a practice writing homophones sentences.
