Logo using https://www.calormen.com/jslogo/ to set the position of the turtle (as it travels from one set position to another it can leave a trail) to make a range of shapes.

In previous years children have used floor turtles such as Bee-Bots and possibly Big-Trak vehicles plus computer programs such as Focus on Bee-Bot on a laptop and on an iPad the Bee-Bot app.

InkedSize_of_screen_with_x_and_y_axis_annotated.jpg

What numbers can you use for setpos or setxy?

The image to the left shows the Logo Interpreter screen with an x and y axis drawn on it.

The Turtle starts at the centre of the screen which is (0, 0) and is shown as start.

To make turtle go to each letter you could use:

  • A = setpos [0 200] or setxy 0 200
  • B = setpos [0 -200] or setxy 0 -200
  • C = setpos [-400 0] or setxy -400 0
  • D = setpos [400 0] or setxy 400 0
  • E= setpos [-400 200] or setxy -400 200
  • F = setpos [400 200] or setxy 400 200
  • G = setpos [-400 -200] or setxy -400 -200
  • H = setpos [400 -200] or setxy 400 -200

 

Task 3 drawing irregular shapes that do not start from the centre

Shapes to draw:

  • an irregular quadrilateral (no sides the same length)
  • an irregular pentagon (no sides the same length)

END at the very end after your repeat instructions like in Level 2

Task 4 using procedues and variables Improve on Task 3 task so that any size square can be drawn

TO square :size

(in the above example the name of the procedure is square [it draws squares] and you need to type in the word squares followed by a number to indicate the size of each side (10 - 150 will fit on the screen)

Task 5 uses more than one variable to make an impressive program that can draw any regular polygon Program the computer to draw any regular polygon with one set of instructions

*SPOILER ALERT - the solution to this is shown in the video

TO shapes :sides

Spellings

1.      As usual, please start today’s spelling lesson with a test.  Ask someone in your house to test you on your spellings from last time.  Mark them afterwards to see how many you got right.

2.     This week we are learning spellings that are adverbials of time.  Read the information on the PowerPoint.  Make sure you can identify which words are adverbials of time and have a go at identifying the correct spellings.  See if you can think of other time adverbials that you could use in your writing but are not on your spelling list.

3.     Copy out the new spellings from the handwriting sheet in your neatest handwriting. 

4.    Today’s task is writing some spelling sentences.  Choose at least 6 ‘adverbials of time’ from this week’s list (more if you would like) and write a really interesting sentence for each one.  Make sure you spell the ‘adverbial of time’ word correctly, along with using correct punctuation and neat handwriting.

Literacy (Grammar)

Remember when we looked at the funny book ‘Eats, Shoots and Leaves’ by Lynne Truss back in the Autumn Term? Today we are going to revisit that book and explore how commas can be used to avoid ambiguity and how just one comma can make a HUGE difference to the meaning of a sentence.

There is an interactive PowerPoint (which includes the answers to some of the questions) and also a PDF version (which is the same except that it isn’t interactive and doesn’t include the answers). Read through the information and instructions, then open the review sheet and complete it in your Home Learning book. 

I have also included a PDF copy of ‘Eats, Shoots and Leaves’ by Lynne Truss for you to look at again. This will help you to complete the review sheet, where you have to do some cartoons of your own.

There is also an extension task at the end of the lesson PowerPoint should you have some spare time or want to challenge yourself.

Easter Holidays Homework

We will not be setting daily tasks during the next two weeks as it is the Easter Holidays. However, we have set some homework tasks for you to complete as we normally would.

Maths – Log in to TTR using your password. We have set x2 Garage games and x2 Arena games. These will be available to complete from 3:20pm on Friday 3rd April and are due to be completed by Monday 20th April.

Spelling – Rather than the usual spelling homework, there is another set of words for you to learn.  This is because we missed a week’s worth of spellings when we were at Mill on the Brue...so I’m afraid it’s time to catch up!

1)  Ask someone to test you on last week’s words.  Mark your words and give yourself a big pat on the back if you got full marks!

2)  Read through the information in the PowerPoint (saved as a pdf for everyone this week). This time we are adding the –ify suffix.

3)  Copy out this week’s words from the handwriting sheet in your neatest handwriting.

4)  Choose one of these activities to complete:

a) Write a sentence for at least 6 (or more if you like) of your spelling words.

b) Write a dictionary definition for all 10 words.

c) Create a word search using all of this week’s spelling words, then give it to someone else in your house to answer.

Daily SACAWAC and Times Tables

SACAWAC

It is a new week and time for a new SACAWAC sheet!  Look at the sheet for your group and copy out the spellings each day into your Home Learning Book.  If you prefer to print it and write on the sheet, then that is fine too.  Remember to check each word carefully at the end to make sure you have not made any mistakes!

Times Tables

Please log in to Times Table Rockstars and spend 10 minutes practising your times tables each day this week.  Or you may still have a blank times table sheet at home that you can use instead this week.

Numeracy

We are continuing to work through MyMaths to consolidate fractions: the children from Year 5 will be asked to work systematically through the units on fractions starting from Year 2 work as assessments have shown significant gaps in their knowledge of this subject. Spend one hour on numeracy, like you would in school.

Spellings

  1. It’s that time of the week again...spelling test time! Ask someone in your house to test you on your spellings from last week.  Mark them afterwards to see how many you got right.
  2. Our new objective for this week is converting nouns or adjectives into verbs using the suffix –ise. Remember a suffix is a group of letters that we add onto the end of a root word to create a new word. Download one of the two PowerPoint files; if you are using a laptop or computer you should be able to view the PowerPoint presentation, if not, download the pdf version to read the information, but it will not be interactive.
  3. Copy out the new spellings from the handwriting sheet in your neatest handwriting. You can print the handwriting sheet if you want, or you can copy the words from the screen.
  4. In your Home Learning Book, write a spelling sentence for each of this week’s spellings. Remember correct punctuation, correct spelling of other keywords and neat handwriting.
  5. Optional Extra. If you are super keen or have time today (or later in the week) you can have a go at the spelling activity ‘Crack the Code’.

Literacy (Guided Reading)

In Guided Reading today, you will be looking at a non-fiction text linked to our topic on Ancient Greece. There are 2 levels of challenge for this task. One is labelled ‘Easier’, one is labelled ‘Challenging’. Please choose ONE to read and answer the relevant questions on.

Read the text carefully. You can read it aloud to an adult or quietly in your head. Then work through the review sheet in the usual way. You could print the sheet, stick it into your Home Learning book and write on it or you could write the answers in your book. Remember to include today’s date and the title: Guided Reading – Modern Greece. You do not need to copy out the questions, just write the question number beside each answer. Remember to answer in full sentences.

Topic

In Topic today, you will continue to find out about Ancient Greece. You are going to complete some research on the 2 city states of Athens and Sparta, finding out how they were similar and how they were different. Use this website link to do your research: http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/greece/athens.htm

The link will take you to the page you will need to use to find out about Athens. Once you have completed the Athens column on your sheet, you will need to choose 'Sparta' from the menu on the left hand side of the screen. This will then take you to the page on Sparta. Please note, there is a typo on the website page and so instead of saying 'Sparta', it says 'Spartsa'!

You could print the review sheet, stick it into your Home Learning book and write on it or you could split a page of your Home Learning book in half and write directly into your book. Remember to include today’s date and the title: Topic – Athens & Sparta.

  1. On a Monday, we would normally have a spelling test.  Ask someone in your house to test you on your spellings from last week. 
  2. Our new objective for this week is converting nouns or adjectives into verbs using the suffix –ate. Remember a suffix is a group of letters that we add onto the end of a root word to create a new word.  Download one of the two PowerPoint files; if you are able to view the PowerPoint presentation you can click on the words and find out which are correct, if not, download the pdf version to read the information, but it will not be interactive. 
  3. Copy out the new spellings from the handwriting sheet in your neatest handwriting.  You can print the handwriting sheet if you want, or you can copy the words from the screen. 
  4. In your Home Learning Bookwrite a spelling sentence for each of this week’s spellings. Remember correct punctuation, correct spelling of other keywords, neat handwriting and most of all…make it interesting!

Numeracy

We are continuing to work through MyMaths to consolidate fractions: the children from Year 5 will be asked to work systematically through the units on fractions starting from Year 2 work as assessments have shown significant gaps in their knowledge of this subject. Spend one hour on numeracy, like you would in school.

Please note: Your teacher will not know that you have done your home learning unless you log in with your username and password

If this is challenging for your child, try using a fraction wall from a website and using the Advanced button to make the two fraction strips one above the other - then shading in the relevant number of rectangles. An example is here: https://www.visnos.com/demos/fraction-wall

Computing

Logo using https://www.calormen.com/jslogo/ to draw regular shapes such as triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons and more shapes.

In previous years children have used floor turtles such as Bee-Bots and possibly Big-Trak vehicles plus computer programs such as Focus on Bee-Bot on a laptop and on an iPad the Bee-Bot app.

Task 2 using the repeat command Draw a square using the repeat function all as one line of instructions (only 3 commands needed!), then write instructions to draw other regular shapes like a triangle, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon and a 17 sided shape.

repeat 4

(Logo will repeat 4 times all of the instructions in the square brackets)

You may want to use rt 360/4 for a square or rt 360/7 for a 7 sided regular shape

Now try Task 3
Task 3 using procedures Teach the website to draw a square and other regular polygons by writing (and editing) a procedure

TO (followed ny a name for the procedure - the name should indicate what the procedure will draw)

END at the very end after your repeat instructions like in Level 2

If you've got this far, you're doing very well and need to have a go at variables. Try Task 4.
Task 4 using procedues and variables Improve on Task 3 task so that any size square can be drawn

TO square :size

(in the above example the name of the procedure is square [it draws squares] and you need to type in the word squares followed by a number to indicate the size of each side (10 - 150 will fit on the screen)

If you've got this far, you're an expert and need to have a go at variables. Try Task 5.
Task 5 uses more than one variable to make an impressive program that can draw any regular polygon Program the computer to draw any regular polygon with one set of instructions

*SPOILER ALERT - the solution to this is shown in the video

TO shapes :sides

(in the above example the name of the procedure is shapes [it draws any regular shape] and you need to type in the word shapes followed by a number to indicate how many sides the shape will have. You may be able to program it to draw each regular shape to fill the screen)

Logo using https://www.calormen.com/jslogo/ to set the position of the turtle (as it travels from one set position to another it can leave a trail) to make a range of shapes.

In previous years children have used floor turtles such as Bee-Bots and possibly Big-Trak vehicles plus computer programs such as Focus on Bee-Bot on a laptop and on an iPad the Bee-Bot app.

InkedSize_of_screen_with_x_and_y_axis_annotated.jpg

What numbers can you use for setpos or setxy?

The image to the left shows the Logo Interpreter screen with an x and y axis drawn on it.

The Turtle starts at the centre of the screen which is (0, 0) and is shown as start.

To make turtle go to each letter you could use:

  • A = setpos [0 200] or setxy 0 200
  • B = setpos [0 -200] or setxy 0 -200
  • C = setpos [-400 0] or setxy -400 0
  • D = setpos [400 0] or setxy 400 0
  • E= setpos [-400 200] or setxy -400 200
  • F = setpos [400 200] or setxy 400 200
  • G = setpos [-400 -200] or setxy -400 -200
  • H = setpos [400 -200] or setxy 400 -200

The task Help video Code you will need
Task 1 using setpos and setxy to move the turtle

As well as giving commands to move or turn the turtle, you can move the turtle to a position.

Try the two basic commands:

  • setpos = set the position of the turtle using x and y coordinates
  • setxy = set the position of the turtle using x and y coordinates

setpos [400 200]

setxy -400 -200

cs =clear screen

Task 2 drawing a shape from the centre

Choose to use either setpos [-100 250] or setxy -100 250 with the numbers for x and y that you have chosen to draw a shape

Shapes to draw:

  • scalene triangle (no sides or angles the same)
  • a right angled traingle
  • an isosceles triangle and

setpos [400 200]

setxy -400 -200

cs =clear screen

Task 3 drawing irregular shapes that do not start from the centre

Shapes to draw:

  • an irregular quadrilateral (no sides the same length)
  • an irregular pentagon (no sides the same length)
irregular.JPG

Example of an irregular pentagon

pu = pen up

pd = pen down

setpos [400 200]

setxy -400 -200

cs = clear screen

Task 4 

Draw an irregular hexagon (6 sided shape) that is as large as possible (this may need you to start your shape from one of the corners of the screen rather than from the centre)

pu = pen up

pd = pen down

setpos [400 200]

setxy -400 -200

cs = clear screen

Task 5 

Draw an irregular concave heptagon (7 sided shape) with no sides the same length and that fills the screen as fully as possible
