Fiver from Home

 

The Fiver from Home project is a fun way for pupils (5-11) to imagine what business they could create with just a £5 note.

 

Fiver from Home helps children to develop key skills, including:

  • Creativity
  • Communication – written and verbal
  • Planning and organisation
  • Problem solving
  • Commercial awareness

Once they complete the workbook and activities, they even get a participation certificate to celebrate their achievement!

 

Work through the 4 parts of the Fiver from Home Workbook, completing the activities and using guiding documents.

 

The Wordguide offers explanations with relevant examples all of the terms in the workbook in case this is the first time seeing them.

For parents / carers supervising or delivering Fiver from Home, we have Top tips for Parents sheet that offers a few suggestions on how to keep your young people engaged and having fun throughout the project.

Think it!

Here’s a fiver, what business could you start?

Use the workbook to create an idea, name your business and use our Top Tips to create a logo.

Research it!

Use the Remote Market Research Template and example questions to find out what your customers think.  This should be completed via telephone or email with people you know.

 

Plan it!

Use the third part of the workbook to create your business plan by answering the questions in the business plan section.  Draw your product or create a poster for your service.

Pitch it!

In the final part of the workbook plan, write and then present a sales pitch to someone in your home.

There are plenty of tips on what to include and how to present the sales pitch in the workbook.

 

Once you have finished, share examples of your work on Showbie.

Complete the checklist and send it back on Showbie to receive a certificate.

 

 

Whole School Challenge

Here’s a song you can all learn together and then we can sing it together when we come back together at school.  You could even have a go at creating a simple dance routine for the chorus.

Today we are going to have a go at writing some diary entries.

Follow the link to take you to the BBC Bitesize website.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvr6pg8

 

Activity 2: Think about the different things that you have done over the past week. This could be things that you have seen, things that you have heard or even school work you have done. 

Then, take a piece of paper and fold it into 4 sections. Label each section with a different day of the week – don’t forget your capital letter! Then in each section, write four things that you did that day. You could even try to circle the verbs that you have used.

 

Activity 3: Now using your plan, create a diary entry that outlines the things that you’ve done over the past week. If you can’t remember what you did, you can include things that you would have liked to do!

  • Write the first day of the week as a heading and then write two or three sentences explaining what you did on that day. Try and include some interesting verbs in there too.
  • Try to use joining words like and, because and when in each of your sentences.
  • Once you've written your first diary entry, write the next day and continue until you have all seven days.

Today we are going to be looking at handwriting and using adjectives. 

Click on the link to go to the BBC Bitesize page.

 

Activity 1: Handwriting – Can you form the 1 armed robot letters correctly? Try practising them by drawing 7 big boxes and writing a different one in each box. Then, go on a hunt around your house or garden to see how many objects you can find that contain each letter, when you find one, add it to the correct box.

 

Activity 2: Imagine you’re making am a poster for a missing monster. First, decide what your monster looks like and then draw a picture of him. Then, add labels to the different parts of the monster to describe all of his features. Try to include at least six labels on your monster and see if you can use multiple describing words together. For example, ‘seven, long pointy fingers’ or ‘thick, greasy blue hair’.

 

Activity 3: Use your poster from activity two to write a paragraph describing your monster. You have already labelled your drawing, so you can use these labels to create sentences!

  • Make sure you use capital letters and full stops in your writing. 
  • Be sure to include adjectives (describing words). 
  • You could also describe how your monster behaves; what it eats, what it drinks or what it likes to do.

Homophones are words that sound the same, but they have different meanings. They also have different spellings.  Using the BBC Bitesize videos for support, we are going to refresh our knowledge on homophones and practice our spellings too!

 

Activity 1: Identifying homophones – play the homophones mini game on Small Town Superheroes. Use the yellow arrows to navigate to the ‘Steve’ section to find the ‘Homophones’ game.

 

Activity 2:  Make a list of all the homophones you can think of.

If you're struggling to think of some, you could always look through some of your favourite books at home and see how many you can spot.

 

Activity 3: Watch the video, ‘Nelly the Monster Sitter’.

What did you think about 'Nelly the Monster Sitter'?

Using the following sentence starters, write your opinion of the story. Try and include lots off detail about what happened and what you thought of it.

  •         My favourite part was _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  •  I thought the book was funny because _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  •  I didn't like when _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
  •  The story would have been better if _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Once you're finished, circle all the times you've used homophones.

The Great Fire of London started in a bakery. Historians think that the oven's fire was left on during the night, and the burning embers started the huge blaze.

 

Today, the ovens in our houses that are a lot safer, but we still need to be careful. Have a chat with an adult at home about ways that we can be safe when we are in the kitchen and using any utensils such as knives or electrical equipment.

 

Create a poster to tell other children about how they can be safe in the kitchen. Have a look at some of the examples below to give you some ideas. Posters are usually colourful and have lots of pictures to grab people’s attention! You could use paper, a computer or a tablet device.

Creative Afternoon

Can you be a baker or a chef?

With an adult, carry out some baking or cooking.

Take photos or create a short video. You could show us the ingredients you are using, how you measure or how you are being safe!

If you are feeling really creative, you could even record step by step instructions on how to make something safely e.g. a sandwich.

 

Or 

 

You could listen to the short song about the Great Fire of London and record yourself singing it. See if someone else at home will join in with you and you could sing in a round, just like in the video!

Online Activities / Live Lessons

English

The houses and buildings in 1666 were made out of wood, this means that the fire spread quickly. How do you think it would have felt being in London during The Great Fire?

Complete the senses activity sheet to help you think of some powerful adjectives and ideas as to what you might have heard, saw, smelt and felt.

 

Now, create a newspaper to report on what has happened (I have uploaded a template for you to look at). Think about –

  • Where and how the fire started
  • Why the fire spread so quickly
  • What were people trying to do to put out the fires

 

Or

 

Create a diary entry about what you have experienced. Remember -

  • Start your diary entry with ‘Dear’ and end with ‘From’
  • Write in first person – I saw… I heard…
  • Explain what you saw people doing on the night of the fire
  • Use adjectives

 

If you write in Biro or pencil, you can use your work again for your creative task this afternoon!

Creative Afternoon

When we look at maps and documents from a long time ago, we can see that the paper has begun to age and it often looks a different colour.

 

Have a go at creating some tea stained paper by following the instructions on the PowerPoint. If you wrote in pencil or Biro this morning, you might even like to try and tea staining your diary entry or newspaper report to make it look like its hundreds of years old!

 

Once your tea stained paper is dry, you might like to…

  • Create a treasure map – in 1666 people buried Parmesan cheese, wine and valuables in their garden’s! But when all of the houses burnt down, it was difficult for them to find it again!
  • Create a map of London from 1666
  • Create some art by drawing a portrait for Samuel Pepys or King Charles II

International Nurses Day

A day observed around the world, on the 12th of May every year, International Nurses Day is an event that celebrates nurses. This day has been celebrated since 1965.

 

It is also celebrated on the 12th of May as it commemorates Florence Nightingale's birthday, the founder of modern, day to day, nursing.  It is even more special this year as it would have been Florence Nightingale’s 200th Birthday!

 

Usually in the United Kingdom, a service is held in Westminster Abbey, London.  A lamp is passed from one nurse to another.  This year, people are being encouraged to ‘shine a light’ in their windows at 8.30pm this evening.

Good morning, Class 2!

 

It is finally the day that we have all been waiting for! You have all worked so hard all week to think about the importance of remembering the people who were in World War 2 and honouring them by creating decorations and preparing food to celebrate VE Day.

 

Some more information can be found here: https://www.veday75.org . I’ve added a poster for you so you can see what events are happening throughout the day. At 11am the nation is asked to remember our Heroes before beginning the celebrations.

 

 

 

Do you have a message for our war heroes, like Colonel Tom Moore? You could record a video message and Tweet it @WalfordSchool @VE75 or send it us via Showbie or email.  

 

Today is all about having fun and spending time with your families at home, but if you wish to, I have attached a selection of activities below for you to complete at home!

  • Create your own code at home
  • Hunt for the hidden words in the VE Day word search
  • Watch a short video about Remembrance and write down some things that you are thankful for https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/poppies
  • Colour in some VE Day colouring sheets
  • Write a diary entry about your VE Day celebrations
  • You may like to take photos throughout the day of the things that you have been doing and then use them to create a scrap book or a book on Book Creator

Your task is to create a newspaper front cover. It must have a bold headline that tells the readers that World War 2 is over. Challenge yourself here… can you use alliteration?  Remember to also add a picture, you could draw a spitfire… a soldier... people celebrating… VE Day decorations! 

 

-First come up with a headline. A lot of newspapers like to use alliteration! (where a few of the words start with the same letter). Remember to check your spelling.

 

-Write your chosen heading at the top of the page.

 

-Draw an eye catching colourful picture underneath to make your newspaper stand out!

 

Here are some ideas of what front covers may have looked like:

Watch the video and then try and complete these activities-


Activity 1: Let's make a list

  • How many different minibeasts did you see in the video?
  • Can you write them in a list using commas?

 

Activity 2: Making a fact file

  • Get a piece of paper and fold it in to four quarters (ask someone to help you if needed).
  • Choose three minibeasts from the video and give each one a name. 
  • Then write a sentence about each one making sure you use joining words to link ideas together. 
  • Draw a picture of each minibeast

For example

  • Sally the snail has a soft body and a hard shell because it protects her.

 

Activity 3: Let's make a game

Draw six big squares on a piece of paper and then cut out each square.

On one side write the name of a minibeast (you can draw it too). Then on the other side write a sentence about that minibeast. Make sure you use joining words to include more detail. For example: I can move really quickly because I have eight legs.

Once you've done six, test the people around you to see how many they can guess.

On Sunday 26th April 2020, take on a challenge of your choosing based around the numbers 2.6 or 26, and fundraise or donate to support the Big Night In.  Charities need our support now more than ever. So, if you can make a donation (big or small), it would mean the world to them.

Please remember there is no pressure to donate, it’s completely up to you!  You could walk, run or cycle 2.6 miles, juggle for 2.6 minutes, climb your stairs 26 times, or bake 26 cupcakes. The options are endless.  Just be sure to follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. 

 

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking:

 

  • Running challenge - Walk, run or jog 2.6 miles 
  • Yoga challenge - Stretch out and relax by completing 26 minutes of yoga
  • Dog walk challenge - Take your dog out for a 26 minute walk and get some fresh air 
  • Fitness challenge - Get moving and feel stronger by completing 26 push ups, squats or lunges
  • Virtual quiz - Host a virtual quiz with 26 questions to stay connected with friends and family 

 

Visit https://www.twopointsixchallenge.co.uk for more ideas!

Take lots of photographs – I can’t wait to see what you have decided to do on Monday!

 

Have a fantastic day everyone! 

 

Best wishes,

Miss Hale

  • write clear instructions on how to look after plants
  • organise your instructions using numbers and time words (first, next, then, last)
  • Remember to use 'bossy verbs' in your sentences.

 

An example of your first instruction could be:

  1. First put your plant in a place where it is light.

Creative Afternoon 

Royal Crown Derby’s

‘Make a Mug, Make a Difference’ campaign.

 

A competition is now open for young people to design a mug that celebrates the NHS.  The winning mugs will then be produced by Royal Crown Derby who aim to make and sell 26,299 mugs, representing and celebrating every day that the NHS has been making our lives better since its formation on 5 July 1948 to its 72nd anniversary in 2020. 

 

Royal Crown Derby are donating all profits to NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent appeal.  The mugs are available to order now and personalised gift messaging is complimentary. 

  

In addition, they hope that this campaign will give young people an engaging challenge, showcase creativity and encourage education about the NHS.

 

There will be two prize winners who will:

 

       Visit the Royal Crown Derby factory to see the mugs being made and receive the very first mug off the production line.

       Have a tour of the Palace of Westminster and will be presented with the first mug off the production line together with their framed artwork. 

       Visit the V&A Museum in London where their mugs will be exhibited.

 

 Watch the video to find out more:

Online Activities / Live Lessons

English

 

Follow the link to BBC English.  Today we are going to focus on adjectives.  Watch the videos and then have a go at the online activities either using a pen and paper or by using the template I have uploaded to Showbie.

 

Activity 1 - Think about a new land that you would like to create - you can be really imaginative.  Choose a name for your land and try to write some adjectives to describe what it looks like. 

Activity 2 – Write a short chapter about what happens in your land? You could even create a character who you meet there.

  • First write the name of your land (that will be the title of your story).
  • You can then write some sentences describing what it is like there (you could use your adjectives from activity 1, if you'd like).
  • Introduce a new character who lives in the land and explain what they do there. Are they kind or mean?

Remember to write in full sentences with capital letters and full stops at the end of your sentences.

 

Activity 3 – How will you travel to the new land that you have created? Draw a picture of what the journey would look like!

Once you've done this, think about who you would invite to join you in your new land. Write an invitation to invite one of your friends or family members to come and explore the land. Remember to include: 

  • the name of the person you're inviting
  • directions on how to get there
  • what time they will need to get there for
  • a bit of detail about the land, but not too much! You want them to see it for themselves.

Key questions that you can ask to support your child and assess their understanding of what a half really is!

  • Tell me about your halves.
  • How do you know this is a half?

Now I would like you to try and have a go at writing your own food chains – challenge yourself to find a food chain with 3 living things and then one with 4.  

grass – cow – human (This food chain has 3 living things)

You could even use one from the video to help you.  We will need this information for tomorrow’s lesson!

Once you’re happy with your food chains, have a go completing The Food Chain Challenge game!

Reading is really important and a great way to get lost in your own imagination.

Write a book review for a book that you have recently read to share with the rest of the class, who knows, they may decide to read it too!  

 

This could have been a book on Oxford Owl, a book you have at home or even an audio book.  Make sure you write a sentence on –

Good morning, Class 2!

Thank you for all of the lovely pictures I received yesterday of your habitat posters, they really blew my socks off! They all had lots of great information on.

Well done for those of you who tried Times Table Rock Stars for the first time, I know it can be tricky but remember, we need to practice something 1,000 times before we can do it!

Science:

Microhabitats

Yesterday we learnt about habitats.  Habitats are the natural place where animals live.  In the habitat, the animal will have everything it needs to be happy and healthy.  They will have air, water, food and shelter.

Watch this video to see if you can guess the natural habitats of the animals!

 https://youtu.be/2fmtIToiGjI

 

Today we are going to learn about microhabitats.  A microhabitat is a very small habitat where a tiny handful of animals or plants live e.g. rock pools, rotting logs, under large stones or hedgerows!

 

Have a look at this video to see some of the creatures you may find – 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSp_meUwug4

 

Time to go out into your garden to hunt for some microhabitats! Maybe you will find some minibeasts!

Record the creatures that you find in your garden.  You could do this by recording them on a piece of paper, taking photos on your tablet of the creatures or of you busy hunting. If you would like to, you could even use the grid that I have uploaded to Showbie!  Have fun!

 

Can you make someone smile today? 

  • Today’s Spread the Happiness Challenge is phone a friend or family member to say hello.

Choose one habitat to create a poster about.  Choose from woodland, polar, ocean, rainforest, costal or urban.  You could make your poster on the iPad using Book Creator/Popplet/Pages or you could use paper, pens and paint and take a photo!

 

Make sure your poster has:

 

  • An eye catching bold title naming your habitat
  • Information to tell the reader what a habitat is and what it needs to provide
  • Pictures of what the habitat looks like and the animals that live there

This week has truly been a historic moment.  Schools are shut, children are learning at home and your adults have become fantastic teachers!

As a way to remember this important moment in history, I would like you to write a recount about your first week.

What has it been like? How have you felt? What’s your favourite thing that you have done this week?

I have uploaded a ‘Steps to Success’ to Showbie to help you think about the features of a recount.

Once you’ve written your recount, upload it to Showbie and keep it in a safe place. One day it might become an important historical artefact!
