Welcome to 3SM.  

Hi 3SM, I hope you are all doing well and are able to access these online resources.

 

I'll try and update our class page with lots of learning opportunities regularly so keep an eye out.

 

I also suggest that you take a look at the other class pages as there might be something that interests you there.

 

 

Our new topic is

Birmingham – Now and Then

 

Your task is to research the local area and complete your own research project. You can use your own observations of your community, the Internet and books to gather information.

Here are a few activities and questions to give you some inspiration.

Try to complete as many of them as you can. 

  • Design an informative PowerPoint
  • Blog/diary
  • Write a non-chronological report
  • Write a poem
  • Write a story
  • Create artwork
    • Paintings
    • Sketches
    • Collage
    • Sculpture
  • Produce a poster
  • Write a fact file or information booklet
  • Plan an interview and record the answers
  • Map work
  • Anything else you can think of!
     

This project will last a few weeks; therefore lots of effort needs to be put into it. Do not just copy and paste the information, write it up in your own words.

Be creative and have fun!

English (22-06-2020) Poetry 

 

This week, we are learning about poetry. Do you know any poems? What do you know about poetry?

 

Poetry is a text type that might focus on feelings, thoughts or ideas. There are lots of different types of poems. These include limericks, acrostic poems, shape poems and free verse. Poems might rhyme but they don't have to. Usual rules of word order and punctuation aren't always followed in poems. 

 

Monday – L.O. To understand that there are different types of poems.

Tuesday – L.O. To explain why I like a poem

 

Poetry is meant to be performed and listened to. Listen to some of these poems. Which were your favourites? Why did you like them? Choose a poem and write a review for it.

Wednesday – L.O. To revise how to write a poem and create one of your own.

 

Here is a lesson to help you explore poetry.

 

Thursday – L.O. To explore inference questions using a poem.

 

This is a poetry reading comprehension.

 

Friday – L.O. To create my own poem

 

Here is a video masterclass based on poetry. Could you write your own leaf poetry?

A Book of Hopes – a collection of stories about hope

Forward Thinking Birmingham

Here are a few useful resources to help support you through these challenging times. We know that it is strange learning from home and not seeing your friends, but if we follow the guidelines and support one another we will be able to be back together soon!

As the UK faces a global coronavirus pandemic, things can feel a little uncertain and even overwhelming. But, during these difficult times, one thing is clear: small acts of kindness make a big difference. Across the country, there has been an outpouring of kindness and children and young people can play their role too. By understanding what we can all do to help tackle this virus, they’ll gain a sense of stability and resilience. The power of kindness calendar helps children and young people learn about and carry out kind acts.

This is a really important time for us to consider the relationships we have with people and who is important to us and why. Take a look at these activities, taking time to reflect on how your relationships with your friends may have changed over this period of time.

Within these unfamiliar times it is extremely important to make sure that we are looking after our own mental health and emotional wellbeing as well as those around us. These sessions and activities will help you to understand different feelings and how to support your own and others’ mental health

English - Assessments (08-06-2020)

 

As we have missed our test week this term, have a go at these assessments! You do not need to print them out, you can use the reading booklets to answer the questions in the answer booklets and write your answers down on paper. Once you are finished, you can check your answers and mark your work using the mark scheme document.  Aim to get at least half of the questions correct.

Photographs

 

 

We are really keen to see what the children are getting up to at home and to put some photos on to Twitter and the school website. Additionally, it would be lovely to have photos that celebrate and thank the NHS and key workers. These do not have to be photos of your child but things that they have created such as posters, poems, rainbows or thank you cards. If you have anything you are happy to share, please send it to parents@sumfield.bham.sch.uk
