English and Maths Home Learning WC 1st February

27 Jan 2021

Hi Phoenix,

Wow, who would believe that February would come around so quickly. I know some of you are finding this really tricky - and as I have told you, I miss you all terribly - but just keep in mind that with every day that passes it means we're one day closer to being back in school together.

Thank you so much for the work you have been uploading to Teams. It really does brighten up my day to see how hard you are working to complete the activities. I have particularly enjoyed the responses to our class novel - I hope you are all enjoying it.

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 - although I have kept it the same format as last week so hopefully it will help.

Take care and I will see you on Zoom.


Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Foster smiley

Maths - Percentages and then algebra

This week we will be finishing off our work on percentages before moving on to algebra. ALthough algebra is a completely new topic for you, hopefully you will be able to see that all of the prior learning you have done this year will support you in being able to complete the tasks.  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.

Problem Solving and Reasoning


English

This week we will be carrying out a class novel week which I am so excited about. I know a lot of you are already intrigued to find out more so I am pleased that we will be able to do this during this week.

Monday - taught session on Zoom at 11am

LO: To develop our understanding of Bruno's character.

Today we will read chapter 12 and spend some time discussing Bruno's character. During the session we will answer the questions below.

1) How do we know that Bruno doesn't understand what is going on?
2) Do you think it is believable that Bruno still doesn't understand what has happened to Shmuel and his family?
3) Bruno is spoilt and naive. Do you agree? Use evidence from the text.

Tuesday - independent session (10am)

LO: To develop a greater understanding of different characters in our novel.

Yesterday afternoon we read chapter 13 together as I feel it is quite a hard chapter to read - emotionally. Have a go at answering the questions below. You need to use evidence from the text to support your answers - which so many of you are doing a great job of.

1) There aren't any good soldiers. What does this mean? Do you agree with the statement? 
2) How do we know that Pavel is finding it a struggle to work and live with Bruno's family?
3) What does Father mean when he says they are 'correcting history'? (page 144)
4) Why do you think the Commandment is concerned about Kotler's father?
5) What do you think happens to Pavel? Why do you think the author does not describe Pavel's punishment?
6) Why do you think Lieutenant Kotler reacted in such a way to spilling the wine?

Wednesday - independent session (10am)

LO: To use evidence from a text.


Today I would like you to look back at what we have read so far and consider the two settings we have discussed. Can you have a go at creating detailed, labelled sketches of both the setting in Berlin and at Out-With (the exterior and interior). I am really looking forward to seeing what you have produced.

Thursday - taught session on Zoom at 8.45am

LO: To develop confidence with inferences.


Today we will read chapter 14 together and discuss the importance of inference when reading more complex texts. We will then have a go at the questions below to develop our understanding of this.

1) How do you think Shmuel got a black eye? Why doesn't he want to talk about it?
2) Why do you think the author keeps repeating the phrase 'the rain continued'?
3) Why does Bruno pretend he has an imaginary friend?
4) What does the verb 'squirmed' (page 156) reveal about how Bruno is feeling?
5) How does talking to Gretel help Bruno better understand what Shmuel is experiencing?


Friday - taught session on Zoom at 8.45am

LO: To consider the use of symbolism in a text.


Today we will read chapter 15 together and then discuss how anuthors use symbols to give their readers ideas. We will then talk through and answer the following questions together.

1) What clues are there to suggest that Lieutenant Kotler might have feelings for Mother?
2) Father gives Bruno a copy of 'Treasure Island' to read. Why might Bruno like this type of book?
3) Why does the author liken Shmuel's finger to 'dying twigs'? What image does it create for the reader? Is it an effective simile?
4) Was Bruno right to deny his friendship with Shmuel?
5) Look at the paragraph that begins, 'You will finish polishing all these glasses...' How does the author create a sense of menace?
