English and Maths Home Learning WC 25th January

22 Jan 2021

Hi Phoenix,

I hope you enjoyed the first week of our full remote learning timetable and that you had enough to keep you busy. Don't forget there are always a few optional activities that you can take part in and there are other bits in the pupil zone too. As well as that there is a Sumdog competition taking place this week and it would be great if you got the chance to take part in it.

I am really proud of you all - I know you're all doing the very best you can and I can not ask for anything more. Remember everyone is working under different circumstances at home so if you feel others are doing more or less than you are it is likely because their situation is different to yours.

I have outlined below the English and maths for this week - make sure you look carefully so you know which sessions are on Zoom and which aren't - it is different from last week.

Take care and I will see you on Zoom.


Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Foster smiley

Maths - Percentages

This week we will be finishing off our work on decimals before moving on to percentages. Hopefully you will be able to see how the learning we have completed on fractions and decimals apply to this new learning. On Monday there isn't a FB4 to complete so we will just start the session at 8.45am. As well as the video links, flashback 4 and activities I have added a true or false question each day and some problem solving and reasoning activities if you would like some extra challenges. The problem solving and reasoning activities are meant to be for the whole unit so if you choose to do one please don't do too many in one go.

We will read chapter 8 and the discuss and answer the following questions:

1) Why do you think Grandmother thinks her son is ‘dressing up like a puppet on a string’? What is she implying?
2) What do you think Grandfather and Grandmother had discussed ‘in advance’?
3) What do you think the word ‘patriot’ means to Father?
4) What might Mother be thinking and feeling as she listens to Father and Grandmother fighting?
5) How does Grandfather’s opinion differ to that of Grandmother’s opinion of their son’s new job?

Tuesday - independent session (10am)

LO: To write in character
Today I would like you to look back through the book and remember what has happened so far. Can you then write a letter in the character of Bruno to Grandmother to tell her about life at Out-With. I would like you to describe the house, the people who live there and the people in the striped pyjamas.

Wednesday - independent session (10am)

LO: To make inferences about the text.

Read chapter 9 and then have a go at the following questions:

2) Look at page 96. How does the author show that the servants work tirelessly?
3) Why do you think Pavel keeps glancing at Bruno’s knee?
4) How do we know that Bruno is an adventurous child? Use examples from the text.
5) Look at pages 100 and 101. How do we know that the ‘pyjama people’ are afraid of the soldiers?

We will read chapter 10 and the dicsuss and answer the following:

1) Look at the paragraph beginning, ‘But while he was thinking this his feet…’ How does the author create a sense of confusion and surprise?
2) ‘the boy…was sitting on the ground with a forlorn expression’ (page 106). What does forlorn mean? Can you use it in a sentence of your own?
3) What is the name of the symbol the boy is wearing on his armband?
4) How does the author create a feeling of sympathy for Shmuel?

Friday - taught session on Zoom at 8.45am
