Class 4 – Home Learning Project – Summer 2011

Posted by eastwoldblog on April 27, 2011

I can honestly say that I was astounded by the standard of  last terms ‘Home Learning Project’.

It was such a pleasure to read the work that had gone into the ‘Coasts’ project!

Thanks to all the adults that helped and supported the children through their work – it was truly excellent!

They should be on display very soon in school.

——————————————————————

OK everyone, I introduced this to you in class today.

World War II – Project

(Download a copy above)

This time you are going to create your own folder/file/scrapbook of tasks related to this terms topic – ‘World War II’.

The tasks fit into different categories like KNOWLEDGE, COMPREHENSION, APPLICATION, ANALYSIS, EVALUATION and SYNTHESIS. Each of these requires you to use different skills.

You get to choose what to do and how much because each activity has a ‘Points Value’.

You need to score AT LEAST 20 pts in AT LEAST 8 activities (You can score more and complete more tasks!)

The final presentation can be very personal and as long as it fulfills the instructions it will be fine!

 ————————————————————————-

Here are the guidelines to follow so you get this project in on time:

You must choose a minimum of 8 activities to do.   You must not do more than 3 from one section.

Your aim is to complete at least 20 points (Points in Brackets).

Think carefully about which activities you can do to balance sections and points.

You should complete the tasks and put them into a folder or a scrapbook.

This shouldn’t necessarily be a solo project, unless you want it to be of course, get the grown-ups involved too, draw upon the skills of parents, grandparents, older (or younger!) brothers and sisters. These people LOVE a challenge – but they SHOULD NOT be doing it for you!

As always, if you have any queries, questions or concerns – just ask Mr Watson.

It is to be handed in: Monday 12th July 2011 (You have just over 10 weeks!)

 ————————————————————————-

Remember that if you ‘go the extra step’ and extend any of the challenges then BONUS POINTS will be available!

Copy and Paste from any source of information like a book, leaflet or the Internet and passing it off as your own WILL result in PENALTY POINTS!

Can you be the one to work hard and score the most points?

Good luck and I hope that you enjoy the challenge!

Mr W.

“Tuesday” by David Wiesner

Posted by eastwoldblog on March 1, 2010

Our latest Literacy unit is Non-Fiction texts – Recounts.

This week Y5 will be taking the role of a Detective investigating the strange occurrences in the night in David Wiesner’s Tuesday.

01.03.10

Today’s task was to gather evidence and take notes for a Police Report on the ‘incident’.

Thinking about:

Witnesses, who claim to have seen ‘things’.

Potential Witnesses, who might have seen or heard odd things in the night.

Evidence, things that have been left behind.

Other Strange Happenings, things that people might have reported which could be connected.

There were lots of good pieces of information taken from the wordless text and some very creative ideas dreamed up by the children!

I was especially impressed with Philippa’s work. So here it is!

I was really impressed with her organisation of her work.

She has used great word choices to fit the style and purpose, as well as including loads of really good ideas for her to ‘investigate’ later.

Well done – I thought I would celebrate your work on here!

In this video David  Wiesner talks about how he was inspired to create his latest book – I think the art work is amazing!

02.03.10

I today’s literacy we played character’s from the book and some not from the book but from our imagination!

We used “Sound Recorder” in the ICT Suite to record the ‘Police Interviews’.

One person took on the role of the investigating detective and another, took on the role of the witness.

We were able then to collect them together as evidence for our case report that we will be writing later in the week.

There were all sorts of ‘interesting’ interviews, from the Sleeping Granny and The Man eating his supper, to fishermen, astronomers and even a recording from RAF radar stations (very creative Luke and Ben!)

Tomorrow we will look at changing the direct speech, in the recordings, to reported speech in the form of a Police Interview Report.
