Activities to complete today (if you can):
Click on Week 8, Lesson 4 – Adding decimals with a different number of decimal places. Watch the video, do the activity, mark your answers. If you have any questions, or are struggling in some way – please get in contact with myself on Dojo and I will try my best to help you! The questions and answer sheets are on the ‘Attachments’ section of today’s work on our school class page.
(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 – This week focuses on the start of the war and what life was like for evacuees. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.
Read the opening (up to the end of page 5) of Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian here: https://www.lovereading4kids.co.uk/book/11395/Goodnight-Mister-Tom-by-Michelle-Magorian.html
Use www.wordhippo.com to help with any words you are unsure of. Based on what you have read, draw a picture of what you think the two main characters described – Mr Thomas ‘Tom’ Oakley and William ‘Willie’ Beech, look like. Around the pictures you have drawn, label words and phrases taken from the text.
Now watch the opening (3:40 mins- 9:24 mins) of the film Goodnight Mister Tom here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7j8awfdvxaw (PG certificate)
Compare the opening of the film to the opening of the book. What are the similarities and differences between the two? Write these down. Which opening to the story do you prefer – book or film? Write down your preference and the reasons for your choice.
Remember, if you are not sure or need any help with anything on here – just contact myself on Dojo.
