Activities to complete today (if you can):
Click on Week 11, Friday Maths Challenge – This will give you a chance to show off what you have learned this week in maths!
(Remember – if this material to too hard for your child at this stage in their development or without the resources they would have access to in school – please do not worry about doing this. You are also welcome to try lower year group work if you feel this would be beneficial. Please contact me if you think this applies to yourself.)
p.s. Please message me to let me know when you have done your maths work – it is nice to see it, as I cannot see it like I could on Purple Mash. Thanks!
Writing Task: Discover what it takes to become an astronaut, the exciting space explorations lined up for 2020 and beyond, and delve into the fictitious planet, Pandora. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.
Re-watch the Pandora video from yesterday’s session. As you are watching, imagine you are an astronaut about to embark on a journey to Pandora. Make a note of the parts you would love to explore and also the places/things which you would be nervous to encounter.
Pandora Discovered: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBGDmin_38E&t=11s&safe=active (Note: Although Avatar has a 12 certificate, this extract is age appropriate).
After watching, now imagine you have just spent your first day in Pandora.
Task - Write a diary/ blog about your experiences – using the notes you gathered to help you. Before writing your diary/blog entry, plan out each section/paragraph – you may wish to use this format to support you:
*Spaceship journey to Pandora
*Landing on Pandora / first impressions
*First place visited (taken from your notes)
*Second place visited / meeting creature from Pandora (taken from your notes)
*Closing paragraph – where are you now? How do you feel about tomorrow?
Keep reading through your diary/blog as you write to check it makes sense. Remember to check for spelling and punctuation too!
Remember, if you are not sure or need any help – please just contact myself on Dojo.
