Good morning all and welcome to Thursday! I hope you’re having a great week so far and staying well.
Please find below the learning for today:
English 14.01.21: Adverbs
You’ve worked very hard this week so I thought I’d throw in an art activity and a story planning activity for today’s English. Over the course of the week, we’ve learned about adverbs and adverbials.
I’m hoping that you’ve got some in your head that you can use to make the start of your sentences more interesting. You can always use the adverb and adverbial mats to help you in the future when you’re writing.
There are two tasks for today:
Task 1: Adverb hunt! You can either use the adverb mat I’ve given you or you can search for your own. There are instructions on the sheet.
Task 2: Story planning. Tomorrow, you’ll be planning your own Viking story. I want you to have a think about what your story will be about. You can use ideas from other stories we’ve looked at or come up with one entirely of your own – just be sure that you use adverbs/ adverbials. Watch the video below; it might give you some exciting ideas – or you might even want to write the story of the video itself.
Maths: 14.01.21: Factors
Factors are the whole numbers which multiply together to make a given total. They rely on our knowledge of times tables, so you might find it useful to have a times table grid with you if you’re not sure.
When we first learn about factors, we can show them using an arch. This is explained really well in the video below.
- You are going to draw a Viking Factorship.
- I have given you a template for a longship, or you may draw your own.
- Choose a number from 1-20 and write it on the sail.
- Find all the factors of that number.
- Draw shields and write the factors on them.
Challenge: If you are confident you can begin to look at numbers beyond 20 when you do this.
I have given you an example and the template, as well as a times table chart to help if you need.
Another country related to the Vikings is Denmark.
Denmark is part of Scandinavia – a group of countries in northern Europe that also includes Norway, Sweden and sometimes Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.
Here are some facts about Denmark:
Population: 5.8 million people live in Denmark (2020)
Name: Kingdom of Denmark, in Danish: Kongeriget Danmark
Government: Parliamentary Monarchy – much like the UK
Queen: Margrethe II of Denmark (since 1972)
Official languages: Danish – and in some regions also Greenlandic, Faroese or German
Literacy: 99% can read and write
Religion: mainly Christians (of these mainly Lutherans 74%)
Currency: 1 Danish Kroner
National Symbols: Mute swan (national bird), Lion (national animal), red and white (national colours).
Once again, your can choose your task from the following:
* Draw a picture or make a model of a famous building from that country.
* Draw (or even make) the flag of that country.
* Create your own information page with the information I give you about it.
* Have a go at a recipe that country is famous for. There are two this week – The potatoes are a lot simpler than the apple cake.
* A special art/ craft activity based around that country. How could I resist finding a challenge with Lego when we’re learning about the home of Lego? Choose from the challenge cards.
Online Lessons: 14.01.21
Please have a go at these if you would like. Use them alongside the learning I provide on here. You do not have to do both these and work I’ve set.
Today, we’re going to have a last look at your -ation words before we get you to test and see how you do tomorrow.
I’ll give you two options of actitvities:
Choice 1: If you’re not as sure with the words, use the segment words or Practice/ test here to help: https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/12/7-The-suffix-ation
Choice 2: If you’re more confident, have a go at writing the words within sentences of your own.

Remember to get done what you can, when you can. We’ll have a bit of a catching up day tomorrow where you can have a look at the work you haven’t managed to complete.
Have a lovely day,
All the best,
