Cats

 

 I love my fluffy, four-legged feline 

When he sleeps on my lap, I know he’s my little cat 

Sneaking on his padded paws unleashing his cutting claws 

You purr when your happy and this makes me cheerful 

Never a fussy eater from chicken to salmon  

Think you’re a tiger but you’re definitely a roaring lion 

Chasing your shadow and running around like a playful kitten 

Nothing beats having a lovable, huggable cat 

French week beg 25.1.21

Week beginning 25.1.2021

Year 5

Bonjour!

Hope that you are all well and keeping your minds busy.

I have attached the answers to last week’s activity on numbers. So have a look and see how well you did!

This week we are going to revise months of the year and learn the names of the seasons.

Here is a video to help you revise the months of the year:

https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=months+of+the+year+in+french&docid=608003293387425376&mid=AB74B3FBEF40140D7DB4AB74B3FBEF40140D7DB4&view=detail&FORM=VIRE

Here are a few suggestions to practise them:

Can you sing them? Recite them? Write them on pieces of paper and place them in order as quickly as you can? How many times can you one of the months in a minute? ALL IN FRENCH OF COURSE!!!

 

This week, I would like you to learn the names of the seasons:

Here they are:

Le printemps (spring)

L’été (Summer)

L’automne (Autumn)

L’hiver (Winter) Think of the word “hibernate”

TASK:

I would like you to create a poster combining the months of the year and the seasons. You could classify the months into the correct seasons in a grid or a circle and add pictures.

Bonne Chance! (Good luck!)

Keep safe and well.

French week beg 18.1.21

Week beginning 18.1.2021

Year 6

Bonjour!

Hope that you are all well and having a good week.

 

To start with complete the quiz on Socrates. Here is how to access it:

Go on the “Socrative” website.

Student section.

Log into the room: SOAL5582

Choose the quiz called “Colours”.

You will be able to complete the Quiz between 1pm and 3pm on Thursday afternoon.

 

This week I would like you to revise/continue to learn about numbers in French.

Check the list of number on the sheet attached to the blog. (Numbers 0 to 100)

Look at the tens before you look at the rest of the numbers.

Dix

Vingt 20

Trente 30                linked to trois (3)

Quarante 40           remember it is linked to “quatre”

Cinquante 50         linked to cinq (5)

Soixante                 linked to six

Soixante-dix          is soixante (60) + dix (10)

Quatre-vingt         is 4×20

Quatre-vingt-dix   is 4×20+10

Cent                         100 linked to the word century for example (100 years)

Write a few of these numbers on cards or paper and test yourself. Write the numbers and then try to write the words next to each one of them. Repeat several times.

After that , once you know the tens , you can add the single digits from 1 to 9.

For example 38 would be trente (30) huit(8) : trente- huit

Have a go at practising a few number : 67, 54, 45,62,29

For numbers between 70 and 79 you need to add number between 10 and 19 as you count on from soixnte –dix

for example 72 will be soixante- douze (60 and 12)

The same applies for numbers between 90 Qutare-vingt-dix and  99 quatre-vingt-dix -neuf (80 and 19) These are not easy! Try and look at how they work and you can use the number sheet provided to help you complete the task.

Now complete the worksheet which is also attached and use the number grid (Numbers from 1-100) to help you.

Make sure you keep your work as next week as I will be revealing the answers and you can check how you did.

 

Bonne Chance! (Good luck!)

Keep safe and well.

Ulama

Are you tired of playing the same game over and over again. If so, read on and learn how to play Ulama!

Ulama is a game wich was invented by the Mayans sometime around the preclasscal period, 2500-100BCE. Ulama was invented along time ago but still can be fun!

What will you need?

To play Ulama you will need: a ball; two rings inside the pitch up high on the stone walls.

More facts about ulama

The shape of the pitch was the same as a capital I. the sides of the court were steep, stones walls. Did you know that the mayans believed the more they played the game the better their crops would be.

How to play ulama   

You need to have two teams , with 5 or more players in each team. You can play for aslong as you like, but at the end, whoever scores the most point, wins.

How to score 

The way to score is easy to understand. All you have to do is get the ball you are using through a ring. The only hard part is how high the ring is, sometimes it can be 27 feet high!

 Top tips:

  • keep an eye on what is happening, don’t run into any walls;
  • play as a team, not just yourself;
  • You might need to learn how to climb a stone wall…..or make a human pyramid with your team to reach the rings!

Ulama work by Isabel.M

 

Ulama 

Are you tired of playing: FootballNetballBasketball or RugbyIf so, why not give Ulama the famous Mayan game a try. 

The equipment you will need is: 

A loin cloth, 

Hip guards, 

Thick girdle, 

Knee pads, 

Type of garter, 

Headdresses, 

And a Helmet. 

 Ulama is played on a court called Tastei, it involves two teams, & a large, hard, rubber ball. Ulama unlike other ball game you can never ever use your hands or feet you can only use your elbows, knees & hips. The aim of the game is the get the large, hard, rubber ball into a stone ring and score a point. 

In order to play Ulama you of course you need to know how to play it 

When playing Ulama the first thing you should know is to never let the ball touch anything other than your elbows, knees & hips. You should also know that when you get the large rubber ball through the stone ring your team gets a point and the first team to get eight points winns, in ancient time the loser team would be sacrificed also in the ancient times only prisoners were to play but now in the modern daysanyone can play and no one would be sacrificed. The game used to go on forever but now it is stopped after two hoursOn each team there can be up to 5-12 players. 

Luckily you didn’t play this game in the ancient times or you would be A SACRAFICE TO THE GODS!!!   now you know how to play Ulama I hope you enjoy playing it. 😊 

My book

My book is called ‘Heroic Animals’ by Clare Balding. It has short stories about different animals that are heroic. One of my favourite animals is Antis the dog who was stuck in a barn shed type thing in a war and a soldier heard whining and went to rescue him and found a dog. They lived with each other until the soldier died.
