Daily Challenge - Transition

A common concern that children have is around making new friends. Today we will consider friendships in more detail, and hopefully you will feel even more confident by the end of the lesson!

Old friends

You have been lucky enough to make lots of amazing friends at Grove. A famous saying states: 

‘Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold.’

This shows how valuable old friends, who you have grown up with, are.

Make a list of the different ways you can keep in touch with your old friends from Grove when you go to Secondary School. 

Now watch this clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7yrhbk 

Were there any tips that you hadn’t thought of?  What do you think is the best tip?

 

How do I make new friends?

Now you are going to Secondary School you have the opportunity to make lots of new friends. Every year, children from Grove return to see us and talk about the amazing new friendships they have formed at Secondary School. You may be feeling nervous about making friends on the first day: remember that everyone will be feeling exactly the same. 

Watch the first two videos here to consider tips for how to start a conversation:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6mj47h

Which tip(s) do you think you will use on your first day in Secondary School?

Give it some time. You might not be best friends with people straight away. You need to take time to get to know others so be patient and persistent.  Also, try not to stick to the same people all the time. Open yourself to new friendships. It’s okay to spend time with new people – it doesn’t mean you like your other friends any less!

Top tips for making friends at Secondary school:

  • Be yourself.
  • Start conversations with people, smile and say hello.
  • Think about what you can say to people i.e. common topics can include, favourite music, films, games. Ask people about, which primary school they went to, experiences of lockdown etc….
  • Find people who have things in common with you.
  • Try joining clubs after or before school. This will allow you to meet new people, who might not be in the same class as you.
  • Be friendly and open with everyone not just the people you already know from primary school.
  • Don’t rush it, it takes time to make new friends.
  • Why am I so special?

It’s important that you acknowledge how amazing you are, and why people would want to be friends with you. We don’t always find this easy to do: often we are more used to complimenting others than ourselves.

But YOU ARE FANTASTIC! So, for your task today, we would like you to write a list of all the amazing features you have. What makes you a good friend? What do qualities do you look for in a friend?

Please see the example below:

I am good at telling jokes.

I make my friends laugh and smile by pulling silly faces.

I would like my friends to be kind to me.

Daily challenge- Moving on

Today we are going to focus on what to expect when you go to your new school.


Click the following link and take a look at the following video where Alfie discusses his school day.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zj2grj6

Activity:


Sometimes our worries about making a change and moving somewhere different can be eased by finding out as much information as we can about the place we are moving to. This will help you to prepare and allow you to know what to expect when you start school in September. This activity will also help you to look forward to some of the new experiences that you will face.

Today I would like you to research your new secondary school by visiting their website. Please use a search engine like Kiddle to do a safe internet search for your new school. Ensure you also type in the location as there may be more than one Holyhead school in the country. For example, if I wanted to search George Dixon Secondary School, I would type this into the search along with the location, Birmingham.

Here are some ideas to help you with your research.
• Find out about your new uniform. Perhaps you can draw a picture and label it. This will prepare you with information of what you will need.
• Find out the names of your new head teacher, Deputy head and head of Year 7.
• Find out about lunchtime arrangements. Some schools even display their menus on the website.
• Explore what types of sports teams you can join.
• Find out about other clubs such as music, art, drama. Sometimes this can be found in a link called extra-curricular activities. Perhaps you can start thinking about which club you would like to join.
• You may be excited about learning a new language. Make a list of the languages that your new school teaches.
• Find out what trips you get to go on in Year 7.
• Find out about your favourite curriculum subject. What will you be learning?
• Explore the English/Literacy page and find out which books you will be reading in Year 7.
• Find out about homework expectations.
• Sometimes schools display a map of the school site. Take a moment to explore the map and familiarise yourself with the names of the buildings.
• Include any other pieces of information that you have found interesting.

You may not be able to find the answers to all these questions. Do not worry about this and find out what you can.

You can present your information in a poster, fact file or an information leaflet. You can have a week to complete this activity but try to look at the website and make notes on the above questions today.

Upload your work on j2e or email a copy to the class email address. We are excited to see what you have found out about your new school.

Daily Challenge – art

All last week you looked at and discussed the Black Lives Matter movement.


In last week’s piece of art we chose to draw people who are role models to us. This week we are going to use our Andy Warhol knowledge as inspiration to draw and colour portraits of important figures in the Black Lives Matter movement.


Have a look at this Marilyn diptych that was painted in 1962 by Andy Warhol shortly after her death. What do you notice straight away? What’s different to his normal style of printing we have looked at before?

Colours play a huge part in helping us expressing our emotions. Some of you may recognise the lyrics from a song which uses colour in this way:

I know that that we have been given a Cotton Candy Sky
A little bit of blue, pink, purple and white
I sometimes see the grey and I sometimes feel the rain
But I’ll see the Colours of the Cotton Candy Sky again

I see the red of my mother’s love
The true blue of my father’s hugs
I see the orange of my siblings smile
I see the pink and the white of the love of my life
And the deep, deep green that all children bring
Are the coolness of my eyes

For my role model I used the inspiring Ruby Bridges – have you heard of her? Have a read of her story using the link below:

https://www.ducksters.com/history/civil_rights/ruby_bridges.php

To start with I printed her portrait 6 times. I then thought carefully about how each image would tell her story using just colours.

Notice the first one – it has a dark outline and is filled with bright colours. To me this represents six year old Ruby when she had passed her entrance test. Eager, filled with innocence and with no idea of the storm that awaited her.


The second picture I shaded a little lighter with dull sad colours. This represents how she may have felt one her arrival to school surrounded by the media and protestors. It must have been very scary and overwhelming.


The 3rd picture is blurred out and smudged. To me this represents her next few months at school where she may have wished to be a ‘normal’ regular person - part of the crowd to just fit in even it means changing who you really are.


But she didn’t – and she quickly embraced her difference as her strength. And in this lies a powerful message for us all!


And slowly the colour returns to her – orange and red for her fierce ambition and the flame that was reignited within her to ensure that everyone had the right to the best education regardless of race.


The next picture is a rainbow of colours – To me this represents the different people whose love and kindness helped Ruby through. Her parents, teachers, friends and even lots of white people defended her.


The last picture is the same as the first: bold and bright – and reminds us how we can use her example as beacon of hope in what seems like dark time. If a six year old could stand up for what she believes – then so can we!

Now is your turn. Start by choosing your role model - it could be a historical figure from the past such as Nelson Mandela or a more recent role model such as Rashford or Stormzy. Tell us why you chose them and then use your colours to tell their story!

Similarities (what things are the same?) Differences (what things are different?)
English and Maths lessons Change rooms for lessons

Activity 2:
Sometimes our worries about making a change and moving somewhere different can be eased by finding out as much information as we can about the place we are moving to. This will help you to prepare and allow you to know what to expect when you start school in September. This activity will also help you to look forward to some of the new experiences that you will face.

Today I would like you to research your new secondary school by visiting their website. Please use a search engine like Kiddle to do a safe internet search for your new school. Ensure you also type in the location as there may be more than one Holyhead school in the country. For example, if I wanted to search George Dixon Secondary School, I would type this into the search along with the location, Birmingham.

Here are some ideas to help you with your research.
• Find out about your new uniform. Perhaps you can draw a picture and label it. This will prepare you with information of what you will need.
• Find out the names of your new head teacher, Deputy head and head of Year 7.
• Find out about lunchtime arrangements. Some schools even display their menus on the website.
• Explore what types of sports teams you can join.
• Find out about other clubs such as music, art, drama. Sometimes this can be found in a link called extra-curricular activities. Perhaps you can start thinking about which club you would like to join.
• You may be excited about learning a new language. Make a list of the languages that your new school teaches.
• Find out what trips you get to go on in Year 7.
• Find out about your favourite curriculum subject. What will you be learning?
• Explore the English/Literacy page and find out which books you will be reading in Year 7.
• Find out about homework expectations.
• Sometimes schools display a map of the school site. Take a moment to explore the map and familiarise yourself with the names of the buildings.
• Include any other pieces of information that you have found interesting.

You may not be able to find the answers to all these questions. Do not worry about this and find out what you can.

You can present your information in a poster, fact file or an information leaflet. You can have a week to complete this activity but try to look at the website and make notes on the above questions today.

Upload your work on j2e or email a copy to the class email address. We are excited to see what you have found out about your new school.

Not all heroes wear capes!

Over the next few weeks, we will be looking at a variety of influential people from different ages and different parts of the world. We will be talking about why they are special and important and then using our art and colours we will express how we feel about them.

To get us started for this week, I would like you to talk about someone who is special or a role model to you. It could be anyone – a teacher, your parents or maybe a friend who has inspires you to do the right things. Maybe you could think about this lockdown and the COVID experience.  There have been many inspiring stories about people doing extraordinary things in very extra ordinary times.

Our artwork this week will be based on the superheroes in our lives whether that is your mum or dad who may be a nurse or doctor on the frontline or any other keyworkers keeping the country going, or your Gran or Grandad who are sticking out this social distancing like a trooper, all the way to your cousins who are delivering food parcels to vulnerable families.

Once you have chosen your person, I would like you to write a short paragraph about why you have chosen this person and what it is about them you most admire. We will be using the techniques of Andy Warhol today. (Repeated images with bright bold colours).

 

In this example, Mrs Umar has chosen to draw a portrait of her daughter who turned 5. She has chosen her because despite not being able to see cousins and friends for over 13 weeks, through her birthday and even Eid, she has shown so much patience and understanding about the whole situation.(Luckily for her the tooth fairy was still at work).

Remember you can upload your work onto J2e blast or email it to the class email address. We can’t wait to see who you chosen to celebrate.

Daily change- Moving on and moving up

Before we discuss moving to secondary school or up a year group, I would like you to reflect on all the wonderful experiences that you have had at Grove. These could include:

-Friends

- A funny moment

-Best school trips

-Achievements

-Taking part in a performance

-Favourite projects

-Clubs

-Learning an instrument

-Special celebration days like World Book Day or Comic Relief

-Other experiences that you remember and have been inspired by


Your task is to be creative and record these memories in an interesting way.

Here are some ideas:
• Create a poster of your special memories.
• Create a piece of art work using the school logo. You can perhaps re-create the school logo and add your special memories on the leaves.
• Create a book with different chapters for the different memories you have.
• Capture your memories in a fun way by creating a ‘Memory Jar’. Using coloured paper, write down your favourite memories. You can use different colours to show different categories of memory e.g. blue for friendship, yellow for teachers, red for favourite lessons, green for school trips. If you do not have coloured paper, simply label your memories or colour them in. Use a jam jar or a plastic bottle to collect your memories; you could even personalise your jar with decoration.
• Using the ideas from the following link, https://safeyoutube.net/w/DegE you can create  photo frames of different memories.
• You can create a video of yourself, explaining some of your most cherished memories of Grove and the things you will miss.

Click on the following link to help you remember some of the trips you have been on. There may even be pictures of you and your friends that you can use for your memory work. Also, you can click on the pupil section on the school website to help you remember other special days at Grove.

There are also pictures on the Year 6 and Year 5 curriculum page that you can take a look at.

http://web.grove.bham.sch.uk/visits-and-visitors

You will have a week to complete this task. Make a start today by planning what your memories are and thinking carefully about how you are going to express these memories. We look forward to seeing your creations and celebrating your time at Grove.

Please send us pictures of your work by uploading them onto J2e or sending an emai

Today you will be making a nature guidebook for your local area.

You will need to consider:
• What types of plants/animals you can find in your local area.
• Where did the different groups of plants and animals congregate
• How you can classify each of these organisms. If it is a vertebrate, is it a mammal/ fish/ bird/ reptile/ amphibian and how do you know? If it is an invertebrate, is it a annelid/ mollusc/ arachnid/ insect and how do you know?
• What are the most common types of plant or animal in your area, and why might this be?

Your guidebook will need to include:
• A section on plants, including pictures of each plant and information on where they can be found and why.
• A section on vertebrates. Try to be ambitious and name each species e.g. try to find out the names of the particular species of birds in your area.
• A section on invertebrates.

Daily Art challenge

This week we are going to merge our artist’s  styles together and use their individual techniques to create a more dramatic pop art.

Remember Andy Warhol focused on:

Images that represent any item that is popular culture
Repeated images, each one with bright bold colours
Roy Lichtenstein focused on:

Onomatopoeia words in comic book style made up of layers of colours
Use of pointillism to create the image.

 

Have a look at one Mrs Umar created this week:

 

The inspiration behind mine was the story of the rocket launch that happened last week in America.

SpaceX became the first private company to successfully launch a rocket carrying astronauts to the International Space Station. It was very exciting to watch live and thanks to technology to see what the astronauts could see at each stage of their journey.  If you missed it, go back and have a look at page 11 of this week’s First News newspaper and read up all about it.

Remember to evaluate your work:

How well did you think you did?
What could you have done even better?
For example in my work:

I feel that overall I am pleased with the image and the colours that I used. However, I feel that my pointillism in blast was more effective than it was in the shoot word.


Remember it is art and your own interpretation so you may wish to share/create a picture based on what you understand. In the words of Andy Warhol “Art is what you can get away with.”

Daily Art challenge

We really enjoyed seeing your Andy Warhol inspired pop art. Well done!

This week we will still be looking at the pop art movement of the 1960’s but this time we will be looking at, and recreating the work of another famous artist called Roy Lichtenstein.

So who is Roy? Roy was an American artist born in New York in 1923. He became famous for his bright and bold paintings of comic strip cartoons as well as his paintings of everyday objects. He was one of a group of artists making art in the 1960s who were called pop artists because they made art about 'popular' things such as TV, celebrities, fast food, pop music and cartoons.
Even though he often painted everyday objects, one area that continued to fascinate Roy was the emergence of the comic book. He often used the comic book style of drawing as his inspiration for his art - with a little twist!
Where traditional comic book art was made of bold fully coloured characters, Roy used a series of dots and dashes to create his work. Have a look at the image below. Although he copied this image exactly from one of his many comic books, look more closely and you will see he has used a series of dots to make the complete picture!

Today we are going to be looking at another of his unique drawing – comic book words. For this he chose onomatopoeic words  - which are words that mimics the sound of the object or action it refers to. For example ‘zzzz’ refers to sleep, ‘acchhoo’ represents a sneeze. Roy used words such as ‘slam’ ‘bang’ ‘whoosh’ ‘woe’ ‘crash’.

Now it is your turn.

Use the bank of words above and get creative.
Don’t forget to use some form of pointillism to make it reflective of Roy’s distinct style.
Take a quiz to find out which pop artist you are!

You will learn:

 Digital mapping skills - zooming, panning

 Digital skills - annotating a map, uploading images, creating a print file

Follow the instructions on this link and click on the video.

https://digimapforschools.edina.ac.uk/resources/scavengerhunt/

Don’t forget to take a screen shot or a picture of your finished map and send it to your teacher.

 

Activity choice 2:

You have found the six figure grid references for a range of famous London landmarks. This week you can draw a picture of your favourite landmark and write a biography of it.

 When was it built? Who designed/built it?

 Why is it a famous landmark?

 How is it used? Have the uses changed over time?

 Interesting facts about the landmark.

Daily challenge - Geography

Last week you located famous landmarks on the River Thames. Here are some interesting facts about the river.

Did you know?

The River Thames is 346 km (215 miles) long.
The source is the Thames Head, Gloucestershire and the Mouth is the Thames Estuary, Southend-on-Sea (North Sea).
The River Thames is the second longest river in the UK.
It is the most well-known of Britain’s rivers because it flows through central London.
It also flows through (or really close by) some other important towns and cities in England, such as: Richmond, Kingston upon Thames, Windsor, Henley-on-Thames, Oxford and Reading.
River features and land uses vary along the course of a river. Today we would like you to log on to Digi Maps and travel along the River Thames again. This time we want you to draw conclusions about the different uses of the river.

Make sure you use the key to help you.

Are there any other clues on the map which help you?

Consider the following questions:

What are the different uses of the river?
Why are rivers important?
Is the river used differently on the outskirts of London in more rural areas compared to inner city London?
What are the positive and negative impacts on the river because of the different ways it is used?

Daily ICT Challenge - Internet and Online Safety 

LO: I can look after my own wellbeing and consider that of others when using chatrooms

Yesterday we looked at how messages can be misinterpreted by others and how you could write a clear message to avoid misunderstandings and people getting hurt.
Today we are going to explore how to look after your own wellbeing and that of others when using online messaging.
What does the term wellbeing mean? The word wellbeing means to feel happy, healthy and safe, this is particularly important when using the internet and online messaging groups.


Looking after your own wellbeing

When using social media and online messaging, it is important that you look after yourself and notice when something isn’t going right for you.
Take a look at the following video to learn how to look after your own wellbeing when you are using online messaging and social media.
https://thekidshouldseethis.com/post/bbc-own-it-digital-wellbeing-animations

Activity 1: In this video the boy’s online wellbeing was being affected in lots of different ways. Make a list of the different problems that he was facing and write a solution for each problem.

Looking after the wellbeing of others

Group chats can be a great way to keep in touch with friends. But they aren't so great if one person is being sent mean messages or is excluded in the group. They may also feel ignored if no one is replying to their messages. So what do you do if you notice this happening? Read the advice in the following web link and watch the video.
https://www.bbc.com/ownit/its-personal/nasty-group-chat?collection=need-answers
https://www.bbc.com/ownit/the-basics/supporting-your-friends-online

Activity 2: Read the following scenarios carefully. Your task is to write a response to each one of these problems and offer the person some advice, thinking carefully about how you can support the wellbeing of other users.  Complete the form with your answers.

What do you do if you have made a mistake and upset someone?

We can all make mistakes from time to time so what can you do if you have upset someone during an online message? Owning up to your mistakes and saying sorry is one of the most important things you can do.
Here is some more useful advice on what to do to make things better.

Friday’s Maths Challenge Answers

Internet Safety

LO: How can I make sure my online messages are clear and respectful?

This week we are launching J2e Messenger to use with our classes. As part of this, we are going to look at how to stay safe and happy when using online chatrooms.

Using an online chatroom can be a great way to communicate with your classmates and catch up with them while you are at home. You can find out how everyone in your class is; what they have been up to; help each other with the work; and generally it can make you feel happy after having communicated with your friends.

Today and tomorrow you are going to be thinking about how we can use online chatrooms in a safe, sensible and appropriate way, considering the wellbeing of other users and yourselves.
Today we are going to focus on how a tone of a message can be interpreted in different ways and how to write appropriate messages to avoid any misunderstandings.

Activity 1: How do you speak to other children and adults when you are in school? Write a list in your book. Think about body language; facial expression; tone of your voice; the words you would choose.

Think carefully about how chatting to someone face to face at school and chatting to them online can be very different.

Activity 2: Create a table showing the differences between chatting to someone in school and chatting to someone online.

Chatting to someone in school Chatting to someone online

 

 

 

 

What problems might occur when chatting to someone online?

Look at the following video and watch what happens when someone misinterprets a message that a friend has sent.

https://www.commonsense.org/education/tlr-ui/modal-collection-video/2496916

It is really important that you think carefully about how you write your messages.

Check Before You Send

Be sure to ask yourself the following questions before sending a message:

1. Would I say this message to someone’s face?

Never send a text, email, comment, or post that you wouldn’t say to someone in person and at school.

2. Did I use capital letters correctly?

Be careful when using UPPERCASE letters. It can sound like SHOUTING.

3. Think before sending an emoji.

You may mean one thing when sending an emoji, however people may interpret it in different way and misread how you are feeling or become upset themselves.

4. Add some more detail to your message.

Adding more information can also help them understand what you actually mean.

Click on the following web link for some more useful advice.

https://www.kidscape.org.uk/advice/advice-for-young-people/dealing-with-cyberbullying/think-before-you-post/

Activity 3: How would the following messages be misinterpreted? Re-write the messages, thinking carefully about being respectful, friendly, polite and clear. Use the check before send list to help you.  Watch the video, where Mrs Patel introduces the task and goes through one example with you.

1. HEY WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

2. Send me your ideas for the poem.

3. That made me laugh!

4. YOU HAVEN’T MESSAGED ME!

5. Was that your work on the website? That was sick!

6. What you up to?

7. OMG! Look at that picture of you on the website!

8. That’s the wrong answer!

Remember, always check before you send.

Also, if you receive a message that may look like any of the above, try not to jump to the wrong conclusion and become upset. Ask your friend politely what they mean.
