Wednesday 3rd June

Reading

I hope you are looking forward to reading the next part of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief!

Chapter 11 is called We Visit the Garden Gnome Emporium. 

It is one of my favourite chapters in the whole book, so I hope that you really enjoy listening to it, remember to think about and check out any language you aren't sure about. 

If you want to draw as I read it to you, then you can do that too.

English

Today's English focuses on those three witches from Macbeth!

They are integral to the story as you will have heard yesterday, they set in motion the events that lead to Macbeth becoming King as well as his downfall. 

 

What I would like you to do is come up with your own design for the witches. 

Below are some examples of witches from different stage and film versions of the Macbeth storyline, as you can see sometimes the witches are young and beautiful, sometimes they are old ladies, and occasionally they are creepy creatures. 

They may all look the same, or each of the three will look and dress very differently. 
 

Don't just think about how they look but also how they move and sound. 

 

You need to decide what the witches look like in your mind. 

Draw all three out. 

 

Around the page add some vocabulary that could help you with a character description tomorrow. 

 

 

 

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Fillet of a fenny snake,

In the caldron boil and bake;

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,

Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

 

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and caldron bubble.

Cool it with a baboon's blood,

Then the charm is firm and good.

Arithmetic

Maths

Today's maths focuses on adding mixed numbers. 

We have looked at this in class previously but this is a good opportunity for some revision!

I hope you have a watch of the video and try the activities below. 

If you find this video a bit difficult to follow, watch the video from Mrs Andrews instead which still focuses on the same worksheet.

Adding mixed fractions

This video will help with work for Wednesday 3rd June adding fractions

Year 5 - Add mixed numbers

Art

Over the next few weeks we are going to be exploring portrait art, this is something we would have been doing in class, so I hope you enjoy the opportunity to have a try at some of this work. 

Our artist that we are focusing on is Frida Kahlo, who we used a number of weeks ago now to create some amazing portraits. 

Today is an opportunity for you to look through some of her art work and understand a bit more about her life. She is one of the most well-known and recognisable artists of the 20th century. 

Have a look through the slides below to find out more about her. 

Now you have had a chance to look through the slides and see what Frida Kahlo's artwork was like, I would now like you to choose one to write a response to, think about the questions and write a study of one of the pieces of art in the slides. 

 

Enjoy- next week we will be having a go at some drawing!
