Thursday 9th July 2020.


Activities to complete today (if you can): 


Click on Week 11, Lesson 4 – Translation. 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 – Space (Part Two) 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.


Explore the fictitious planet ‘Pandora’ from the film Avatar by watching the clip below. (Note: Although Avatar has a 12 certificate, this extract is age appropriate). Pandora Discovered:


After watching once, watch again – this time making notes about the planet as you watch. You may find pausing the clip at these times helpful to write down your notes: - 0:00 – 0:56 mins - 0:56 – 2:04 mins - 2:04 – 3:33 mins - 3:33 – end.


Task - Based on the notes you have written, create a page, which might appear in a travel brochure, advertising a space trip to Pandora. When writing your advertisement, consider these points:

- Have you included an enticing title which will draw the reader in?

- Begin with an opening paragraph which gives an overview of Pandora and why they might want to visit.

- Include short subsections which describe what they might see if they took the trip.

- Don’t forget to use persuasive features, such as: appealing adjectives to describe the attractions, rhetorical questions, imperative verbs, e.g. ‘grab a ticket’ ‘book now’, facts and figures about Pandora. Remember to keep checking through your work for spelling and punctuation.


Remember, if you are not sure or need any help with anything on here – just contact myself on Dojo.
