Key Stage 2

Equality News Update: Childline report 13% rise in calls from ...Banksy Blog CEOP LOGO - Roby Park Primary

Wow! There are already some amazing pieces of topic work this week from Banksy Class. You guys have really excelled yourselves and I am proud of  you all. Don't forget to look at the PowerPoints too, as well as the amazing gallery! Well done everyone who emailed me work so far, Mr B   

Banksy Blog

Friday 22nd May

Rob Brabin (robb) on: Banksy Blog

Morning everybody and hope you are all ok?

Another reminder that I will be taking a week off for half term next week. There will be a topic on the KS2 website (describing a setting based on some pictures/photographs of this week’s chosen county). Have a great week and I will send something through for Monday 1st June.  

Ok, Friday 22nd May...

Topic/Writing -PLEASE IGNORE THIS BIT IF YOU HAVE ALREADY EMAILED ME COMPLETED WORK 

Today is obviously all about finishing your project on a country. A reminder that I don’t mind how the information is presented, but things it absolutely must to have are…

  • Continent
  • Climate
  • Population
  • Physical and human features (landmarks)
  • Language 
  • Currency (type of money used)
  • Which line of Latitude or Longitude it lies on

Also, today could you include the national flag too? Print or sketch? I forgot to mention this on the other emails. Is there any meaning behind the national flag? Email the final presentations/projects over to me if you would like them published on the Banksy blog.   

Reading Tasks

There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom: Please read chapters 17, 18 and 19, then answer comprehension questions on the website, book club page. 

Finish both geography-themed reading comprehensions if you haven’t done them already.  (links above this post)

Finally, because Book Club is on hold for a week, I suggest you pick up your own individual reading book and get re-familiarised with it (if you haven’t already!) I know many of you are really enjoying book club and reading along with me, but the ultimate goal is for you guys to be totally independent readers. Really show me next week that you don’t actually need Mr B to enjoy a good book! 

SPaG TASK

People have been doing the SPaG questions reasonably well this week but most of you need practice on using ‘hyphens’. There is some good stuff on Education City about hyphens so just search for it in the search bar if you fancy it.

Each of these sentences needs at least TWO hyphens added. Please write them out with the hyphens added. (number 8 has even more!)  

  1. The nice natured girl attended the clown themed Christmas party
  2. The blue eyed boy was owl like in his appearance.
  3. The good looking lady had a model like figure
  4. His blood red eyes stared at the ten year old in front of him. 
  5. The word famous actor was close up to the camera.
  6. The long winded story was told in the pitch black.
  7. The able bodied girl helped the bad tempered man. 
  8. The baby faced man eating giant was clean shaven and brown haired 
     

Maths

Do the Bitesize lesson (or if you are using an alternative that’s fine) Below is the arithmetic work…

  1. 7223+ 676 + 2.9 =
  2. 6721 – 993 =
  3. 352 x 4 =
  4. 4802 ÷ 7=
  5. 389.47 + 55.387 + 5.8=
  6. 111.111 – 22.689 =
  7. 32 X 682 =
  8. 315232 ÷ 32=  

    Have a great Friday everybody, Mr B

Morning everybody and hope you are all ok?

Guys- next week, I am going to take a week off for half term break (week beginning Monday 25th May). I have gone full pelt since we began lockdown but really need to take a week for family time - I know you guys will understand. There will still be a big project (describing a setting) on the KS2 section of the website and I will ensure there are reading comprehensions on the Banksy Blog page for those who want to do them. Any questions or concerns, please get in touch this week as I will be away from my email next week.   

Ok, here is an optional plan for today….

Topic Writing

So, you should have chosen your country and have quite a few notes on it already. Check through yesterday’s list of things to investigate to see what you are still missing. Maybe find a travel/nature documentary on your country somewhere? See what’s on YouTube, Netflix or just continue using the internet in general to get all of those facts. Have you used Google Earth/Maps to really study it geographically? You should be able to describe what is north, south, east west and central in your country. You should know where the main cities are roughly, bordering countries, where the sea/ocean is in relation to it.  Also those physical and human features are important. (Natural and man-made landmarks)

NEXT: You need to decide HOW you are going to present your country to me over the next couple of days. Are you going to do a big poster? Fact-file? PowerPoint? Make a start today and email what you’ve done at the end of the day (even if it’s half finished!) It’s up to you how you present your findings but remember TWO things…

  1. Make it attractive to look at and well presented. Make it bright and cheery if you can.
  2. Include those main important facts. Maybe use facts boxes or bubbles around a central picture 

Reading Tasks

There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom: Please read chapters 15 and 16 then answer comprehension questions on the website, book club page. 

There is that reading comprehension called ‘Facts About Greece’ which I would like you to answer today if you haven’t done it already.  (link on Banksy Blog Page)

SPaG TASK (Sorry it has said noun phrases here for past few days – was supposed to say ‘Puncutation

Add the punctuation into these sentences keeping them as one sentence. Commas, brackets, capital letters, hyphens and full stops

  1. oh my goodness screamed joe
  2. the book was called watership down
  3. the nice natured girl wore a blue coloured dress
  4. ronnie osulivan who is rich plays snooker
  5. my labrador a popular breed of dog in called molly
  6. in the banksy pencil pots there should be pens pencils rulers and a rubber
  7. jane asked who wants to read first today  
  8. miss costello drove to school I in her peugeot on monday  
     

Maths

Do the Bitesize lesson (or if you are using an alternative that’s fine)

  1. 4529+ 443 + 7.8 =
  2. 7111 – 862 =
  3. 224 x 3 =
  4. 5052 ÷ 6=
  5. 754.68 + 24.886 + 4.9=
  6. 566.72 – 62.783 =
  7. 44 X 723 =
  8. 20685 ÷ 21=  

    Have a great Thursday everybody, Mr B

Morning everybody and hope you are all ok? Here is an optional plan for today….

Topic/Writing

If you haven’t yet, choose one country from your research. Chose wisely because you are going to become an expert in that country over the next three days AND you are going to be working on a description of a setting based on this country all of next week! Make sure that you have chosen somewhere with interesting scenery, plenty to find out about, an interesting culture to research into and somewhere that you would probably want to visit in your lifetime. Somewhere deserted and barren might not be the best choice!

When you have decided – get stuck in with the research. Make some clear and legible notes on the following…

  • Which line of latitude or longitude do they lie on?
  • Continent
  • Capital cities
  • Climate
  • Average temperature
  • Population
  • Physical and human features/landmarks. 
  • Bordering countries
  • Land area
  • Nearest sea/ocean
  • Currency/money
  • Economic wealth - rich country/poor country?
  • Language/languages 
  • Religion
  • Sports
  • Dance
  • Food
  • Customs
  • Famous people
  • Government/Royal family?

 

Reading Tasks

There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom: Please read chapters 12,13 and14 (three very short omes) then answer comprehension questions on the website, book club page. 

There is also a new comprehension called Facts About Greece which I would like you to answer today or tomorrow (link above)

SPaG TASK - Noun phrases

Add the punctuation into these sentences keeping them as one sentence. Commas, brackets, capital letters, hyphens and full stops

  1. are you coming demanded Robert
  2. interestingly tim peake an astronaut trained for many years
  3. we have now been on lockdown for march april and may
  4. dennis the trigger happy gunman shot at pc cummings
  5. the cat like ballerina danced to tchaikovskys nutcracker suite
  6. mr brabin mrs bayliss and mrs bealey taught in banksy class
  7. sarah said i dont want to go if hes there
  8. i need a shoe horn a device used for putting on shoes 

     

 

Maths

How are the Bitesize lessons coming along? Hope you are all following them or at least do the theme? Arithmetic underneath... 

 

  1. 7232 + 723 + 6.2 =
  2. 2245 – 785 =
  3. 441 x 3 =
  4. 672 ÷ 7=
  5. 566.92 + 11.993 + 6.8=
  6. 321.33 – 45.468 =
  7. 32X 565 =
  8. 1577 ÷ 19=  

    Have a great Wednesday everybody, Mr B

Morning folks. How did the research go yesterday? Hope the children are engaging with the topic this week. Please ask them a few questions on what they are finding out about if you haven’t already. They should be able to explain what lines of latitude and longitude are and why humans have bothered dividing the planet up this way. What is the purpose of it? (References etc) They should also be able to talk a little bit about Tropic of Capricorn and Cancer and explain why the equator is the hottest part of the earth etc. They should also be able to explain the difference between the north and south poles. Try and create the time to have a small conversation with them and maybe look back through those PowerPoints if they seem shaky on any of it please. 

Ok, an optional plan for the opening day….

Topic/Writing

If you haven’t yet it is important that you watch my video on website and read both PowerPoints. There are links on the class blog page on the website to both. Understand the main lines of latitude and longitude.

Some more questions to answer today…

  1. Is it true that the 8 countries within the Arctic Circle are the coldest on the planet? How does this region compare to the South Pole?
  2. Why are countries on the Equator the hottest? Can you explain it? Which country in Europe is nearest to the Equator?
  3. Where are we (England) in terms of latitude and longitude? Which other countries are on the same line as us?

After this, I would like you to begin some country research. I would like you to do a little research make some notes on TWO OR THREE countries that lie on the following…

The equator (13 to choose from – try and chose 2/3 on opposite sides of the globe)

The tropic of Cancer (16 countries – ty and chose 2/3 in different continents)

The Tropic of Capricorn (10 countries – try and chose 2/3 in different continents)

The Arctic Circle (8 countries within – chose 2/3)

So, a few notes no some of these countries – definitely include CONTINENT, CLIMATE, POPULATION.

Finally today – make a decision on the country that you are going to create your fact file/project on. I strongly suggest that you chose somewhere that you know very little about. Make that decision today please!

Reading Tasks

There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom: Please read chapters 10 & 11, then answer comprehension questions on the website, book club page. 

There is also a comprehension called Europe Natural Features which I would like you to answer today if you haven’t already. (link above)

NOTE: I will put a new geography-themed reading comprehension up tomorrow (Wed) so get that one finished so you don’t fall behind please!

Hello all and hope you had a good weekend!

As usual, here is an optional plan for the opening day of this new geography-based topic….

Topic/Writing

  • Start by looking at the website as always. Watch my video and have general look around the updated KS2 section.
  • Then look at PowerPoints on lines of latitude and longitude. The second PowerPoint is trickier but see if you can try and make sense of it.
  • Try and make some clear well-written notes with definitions of the following…

The equator

The northern hemisphere

The southern hemisphere

The tropic of Cancer

The Tropic of Capricorn

The Arctic Circle 

Just make sure you are completely confident on knowing what these are. Are all of these considered lines of latitude and lines of longitude?

Reading Tasks

There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom: Please read chapter 9 only, then answer comprehension questions on the website, book club page. 

There is also a comprehension called Europe Natural Features which I would like you to answer this week please (link on Banksy Blog Page)
