'Be the best you can be'

 

Falcon Class 2019 - 2020

Please return all three books you borrowed from the school library - drop them off at the school office.  

Home Learning Activities

Welcome, Falcon Class, to your new virtual classroom! This has become our new 'normal' classroom until the end of the term, however we all look forward to welcoming you all back to school in September when you will be in Golden Eagle class. We are making our way through some of the Year 5 curriculum objectives to prepare you for when you return to school.

As I am currently teaching a Year 6 bubble, I am unable to reply to emails as quickly as before. If you have any urgent queries, please call or email the school office and your issue will be addressed by a member of the office staff or from Senior Leadership Team. If your email contains a piece of work or a photo, it will be forwarded onto myself but I may not reply. You can also still contact me via 2Email on PurpleMash but, again, it is not guaranteed that I will reply - but I do promise that I read every email that I receive!

Thank you for all your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

Our topic this term is To Infinity and Beyond! It is all about Earth and space. It links very closely to a Year 5 Science unit, however we will be studying many more aspects of Space. At the bottom of this page is the curriculum overview for the summer term. This is not an expectation that you learn everything outlined, it is just an informative document outlining what would be taught if we were at school for the entirety of the summer term. If schools do return, we will pick key points from the summer overview to study. Also further down this page is a list of optional activities linked to space that you might like to complete. At the very bottom of this page is a list of documents you may find useful during school closures.

Friday 10th July

Welcome back, Falcon Class! I've been impressed with your home learning this week. I've given out lots of rewards on PurpleMash so be sure to check if you've earned one!

Hopefully you all read the newsletter yesterday and saw who your teacher is from September! I'm super excited to be teaching you for another year, hopefully you're all happy to have me as your teacher again too. 

Today, you will also all receive your end of year school report. These will be emailed to you during the day but please be patient as there are many emails to send, you should receive it before 6pm. I will call all parents before the end of term to discuss reports and anything else or just check in, so if you have any comments or concerns about the report, we will be able to discuss it in detail. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, hopefully the sun begins to shine! See you on Monday! 

As I am now working in school with Year 6 children, I am unable to respond to emails. If you have a specific query, your email will be forwarded onto me and I will do my best to reply quickly. If your message is just general or contains a piece of work for me to look at, I may not reply.

Maths

Welcome to Challenge Week in Maths! This week is all about testing yourselves and trying your hardest to answer some tricky problems. Today, I have given you another spooky murder mystery to solve! Many of you did excellently at being Sherlock yesterday - see if you can do the same thing today! 

Today's lesson can be downloaded from the documents below.

English 

You did some more brilliant writing about your adventure to space, yesterday. We're going to continue with that theme today.

As it is the last day of the week, we need to finish your space adventure! Today on PurpleMash, I would like you to write a newspaper report about your landing. Think back to the last couple of days - it was hugely momentous that you managed to return to Earth safely without the help of any ground crew and a broken rocket! It would get worldwide coverage and you'd be a household name! Logon to PurpleMash to see today's 2Do and write your newspaper report.

Aminah's Art World

Logon to the website below for another bunch of arty activities (I'd love to see photos of your creations!). You will need Flash installed on your computer or tablet to be able to access this website.

http://aminahsworld.org/ 

Please return all three books you borrowed from the school library - drop them off at the school office.  

Below is work from every day this week.

 Monday 6th July


Another Monday creeps around and it brings back another week of home learning. Are you all ready?! I hope you had a wonderful, restful weekend and enjoyed the warm weather yesterday. I did a huge spring clean over the weekend which took me ages! As soon as I finished doing all the fresh laundry, my cat went and curled up inside of it; the end result was wonderful cat-hair clean bedding. Typical!


I have planned another week of home learning. It is Challenge Week in Maths so make sure you have your thinking caps on! We'll be doing some more writing about Space for English too, so be prepared! I look forward to marking your work! 


Please can every child return their library book. Every child checked out three books before schools closed in March. If you are unsure of the titles of these books, please contact Mrs Campbell in the school office. If you have misplaced or damaged these books, please again call Mrs Campbell and you may be asked to bring in a suitable alternative or pay for a replacement book. All books must be returned before the summer holidays to allow us to complete a proper itinerary of our library's resources. Thank you!


Later this term, you will be able to come back to school to pick up any things you left behind (such as PE kits or pencil cases) and your Year 5 books. You will receive an email about this soon. 


As I am now working in school with Year 6 children, I am unable to respond to emails. If you have a specific query, your email will be forwarded onto me and I will do my best to reply quickly. If your message is just general or contains a piece of work for me to look at, I may not reply.  


Maths


Welcome to Challenge Week in Maths! This week is all about testing yourselves and trying your hardest to answer some tricky problems. I thought that I would start you off easy today... your challenge is all about ice cream! I love ice cream but don't treat myself to it very often. Before lockdown, I visited Crockford Farm with my nephew (he turned one last week! Aww) and they have a wonderful ice cream parlour there. Tasty! I thoroughly recommend the visit!


Your ice cream themed Maths Challenge can be downloaded as a pdf or pptx from the list of documents below. Thinking caps at the ready! The answers are at the end of the document. There are also some additional challenges in the document which I think you should all give a go - especially if you often chose 'gold' challenges back in the classroom. Let me know how you get on. Good luck!


English 


Last week, we did lots of SPaG activities. You all did fantastically! This week, I would like to see some of those devices from last week being used in your writing. I've started you off with a nice, easy activity for a Monday. I would like you to design a space suit! These are incredibly important, you can't go into space without a proper space suit. You may want to do some research into how space suits have changed over time. It is particularly interesting to look at the space suits that were most recently used in the SpaceX launch last month. They have changed a lot!


Have a think about what are the most important elements of a space suit. Is it to be fashionable or practical? What colours are best? Do they need specific features? Some space helmets have a patch of velcro inside. It serves a very important purpose... to help astronauts soothe an itch! 


You can draw your space suit and scan or take a picture of it and upload it onto the assigned 2Do on PurpleMash. Alternatively, you could draw the space suit using the PurpleMash paint tools. There is also space for you to add a short description of your space suit. Have fun!


The Time-Crimes of Logonator 


On PurpleMash, I have assigned you all a 2Do with the name above. It's a game! Pit yourself against an evil robot who travels in time trying to disrupt the development of civilisation. In each mission you must solve a puzzle using the programme Logo. 

 Tuesday 7th July


Hello again, Falcons! Welcome back! We have just over two more weeks of home learning before the summer holidays starts. Do you have anything exciting planned for your summer holidays? I wonder if you can remember what exciting things I had planned for mine? They've all been postponed now... but can you remember what they were?


Thank you to everyone who has returned their library books and pBones. We're still waiting on a few more children to return these as soon as possible. This will allow us to work out what books (if any) are missing from the library and replace them ahead of September when you return to school. Most of our library books are also on Accelerated Reader so it is a great loss if they are not returned. If you have misplaced, damaged or forgotten the name of your library book, simply call the school office and ask to speak to Mrs Campbell and she will happily help you.


For those of you that didn't see last week's newsletter, your end of year report will be emailed to you at some point during the day on Friday. Please be patient as this is a huge task for Mrs Campbell and Mrs Watson in the office to email each parent individually - you will receive your report but some children may receive theirs earlier in the day. All reports will be sent out by the end of the day. Due to this, this week's newsletter will be published on Thursday. Don't forget to also watch the celebration assembly each week - you never know, you might be mentioned! 


I promised that I would call all parents before the end of the term where we can discuss the reports further if you wish. I will let you know nearer the time when to expect a phone call!


Later this term, you will be able to come back to school to pick up any things you left behind (such as PE kits or pencil cases) and your Year 5 books. You will receive an email about this soon. 


As I am now working in school with Year 6 children, I am unable to respond to emails. If you have a specific query, your email will be forwarded onto me and I will do my best to reply quickly. If your message is just general or contains a piece of work for me to look at, I may not reply.  


Maths


Welcome to Challenge Week in Maths! This week is all about testing yourselves and trying your hardest to answer some tricky problems. How did you get on with yesterday's ice cream challenge, finding all of the possibilities? When I go to the beach, I don't like swimming in the sea. Instead, I like sunbathing and making sandcastles. In the past, I've also enjoyed rockpooling and searching for crabs! All of these things are important for you to solve today's challenge which features seaside-themed items!


Just to liven things up, I've also added new summer-themed polls below!


You can download today's challenge activity from the list of documents below. 


English 


Well done to those of you who logged onto PurpleMash to complete yesterday's activity. You need to logon to complete your work every day! Remember that I am still looking for top-notch, quality writing in all writing activities that I assign to you. Think carefully about all of those expectations I had in the classroom: interesting sentence starters, a wide and ambitious variety of vocabulary, relative clauses, correct punctuation - including the use of a dashes, brackets, commas and semi-colons. Making sure you continue to achieve my high expectations will make your transition into Year Six much smoother. 


Following this, I have assigned you a longer writing activity on PurpleMash today (consider this an opportunity to meet my high expectations again)! Think about the space suit you designed yesterday. What special features did you add to it to make it unique? The more effort you put into yesterday's work, the easier today's will be. The more effort you put into today's work, the easier tomorrow's will be and so forth! 


I would like you to imagine that you are wearing your own space suit that you designed yesterday. Imagine you are travelling to the Moon and wearing your space suit when you land on the Moon. You will remember from Maths last week that it takes years to prepare for such an event as the Moon landing! So you land on the Moon - what is it like? What is the landscape like? What can you see on the ground from astronauts before you? Will you add anything or write your own message? How will it feel to move around on the Moon? Will you be excited, nervous or both or something else entirely?! I would like you to write a setting description about landing on the Moon. It needs to be written in first person. Remember that setting descriptions include very little action and much more description. 


Logon to PurpleMash to see today's 2Do. 


Tate Modern


Check out the link below! It will direct you to the Tate Museums website where it lists some art and craft activities for you to try at home! I'd love to see a picture of you and any of your creations!

 Wednesday 8th July


It's another Hump Day - middle of the week! The weather today looks terrible, I hope you all manage stay warm and dry inside. Remember to also try to squeeze in some exercise to keep yourself fit and healthy. If you're brave enough, you could venture outside. However, if you're more like me and want to stay indoors, why not try some Les Mills workouts on Youtube or doing some Yoga? We recently got our Wii Fit out of storage too... that's great fun!


Thank you to everyone who has returned their library books and pBones. We're still waiting on a few more children to return these as soon as possible.

Maths


Welcome to Challenge Week in Maths! This week is all about testing yourselves and trying your hardest to answer some tricky problems. Today's challenge is all about your times tables. You will need good knowledge of your times tables to solve today's work, so it could be an idea to warm up by playing some games on PurpleMash or TTRockstars.


Today's lesson can be downloaded from the documents below.


English 


Your Moon setting descriptions yesterday were fantastic! You all thought carefully about my high expectations - keep it up! 


You have finished exploring on the Moon and decide to head back to your rocket to travel back to Earth. But uh-oh... your rocket won't take off! Imagine getting back on board the rocket with your fellow astronauts and finding yourselves stuck - how would that make you feel and react? You try to contact ground crew on your radio but even that won't work! You're stuck in space! Think about what resources and food you have left on the rocket. Would you be able to survive off those? Probably not! How will you get yourselves back to Earth? Can you make a plan?


Today, I would like you to write a diary entry about the issue. Logon to PurpleMash to see today's 2Do. Remember to use the checklist to help you. 


Pattern Creator


Have a look at the link below... it will take you to a pattern creator website. What pictures can you make?

Thursday 9th July


Welcome back, Falcon Class! How did you get on with yesterday's home learning? I'm really enjoying receiving your emails and reading through your work. Yesterday, my Year Six bubble helped Mrs Campbell to create a new display featuring reading butterflies in the library for September. They will look beautiful! Hopefully you will enjoy seeing them in September too. 


See below for today's home learning activities, hopefully they're enjoyable! I've also added more photos to the class gallery below. Thank you for letting me see what you're up to!


As I am now working in school with Year 6 children, I am unable to respond to emails. If you have a specific query, your email will be forwarded onto me and I will do my best to reply quickly. If your message is just general or contains a piece of work for me to look at, I may not reply.  


Maths


Welcome to Challenge Week in Maths! This week is all about testing yourselves and trying your hardest to answer some tricky problems. For today and tomorrow, I have given you a spooky murder mystery to solve! You will need to put on your best Sherlock Holmes impression to solve these mathematical murders. 


Today's lesson can be downloaded from the documents below.


English 


Well done for your excellent diary entries about being stuck on the Moon yesterday! Many of you worked extremely hard; including excellent vocabulary and sentence structure in your writing and using a register and language appropriate to the tone of the task. 


Now that you've been on the Moon for a few hours and calmed down by writing about your current frightening dilemma in your diary, you've had the chance to reflect and think things through clearly. You have an idea! You're going to build a new space craft to fly you back to Earth using parts from the broken one! I would like you today to write about building your space craft and flying back home to Earth. Think carefully about how you will be welcomed home - remember that you have no contact with the ground crew so they won't expect an unfamiliar rocket flying onto Earth! Will they be excited and amazed or frightened and worried?


Logon to PurpleMash to complete today's 2Do. Write a diary entry about your safe landing back on Earth.


Colouring


Yesterday was a very rainy day and I love nothing more than colouring and relaxing when it's drizzling. So today, I've attached a colouring website. You can download the pictures or colour them online! Please note that the website is American, hence the misspelling of a key word!

So you've clicked here because you fancy yourself a budding journalist! That's fantastic! Journalism is an exciting and fast-paced career. But it's competitive and fast-paced. So why not have some practise now?!


Many of you have already read some of the blog posts I have written on our space blog. How do you fancy writing a post for everyone else to read?!




What you need to do:



  • Research something about space (absolutely anything you like)

  • Write an article approximately 300 to 600 words long. Make sure it's exciting as to not bore your readers and check it makes sense so it doesn't confuse anyone.

  • Submit it to Miss Humphreys by emailing it to info@kingfield.surrey.sch.uk and she will upload it onto the blog.

As many of you know, my mum is a teaching and learning coach for senior leadership in schools in Florida. Her specialism when she was a teacher was biology.


Two of my mum's favourite things (other than her daughters of course!) is Science and... Snoopy!! So she came across some Snoopy in Space resources. I've shared them with you, just click here or find the document called Snoopy at the bottom of this page.

You can still share some of your wonderful photos! Just send them to the office and I will upload them :-)

Here are some photos of the extra things you have been getting up to at home! If you'd like to send in any photos, just email them to the office. Remember to ask for permission to post any photos of you from an adult at home and tell me that it's okay to share them on our website!

You won't be in Falcon Class for much longer... so be sure to check out these Falcons whilst you can!

Just click the website link and scroll down to see live video.

Peregrine Falcon Camera - now live!!

Did you know that Peregrine Falcons mate for life? The same pair of Peregrine Falcons return to Woking every year when they breed. Woking Council have installed cameras so we can watch the young falcons hatch and grow!

What's your favourite pizza topping?

6 children said just cheese - a true classic!

10 children said pepperoni - yum!

7 children said ham and pineapple - controversial!

1 child said vegetables - well done... or was that an adult answering, I wonder?!

5 children said they like anything - not fussy! 

Seaside

Superhero Powers

1 child wants super strength
4 children want the ability to fly
6 children want to have super speed
10 children want to be able to turn invisible
4 children would like to be super stretchy!
