Activities to complete today (if you can):
Click on Week 8, Lesson 2 – Percentages as Fractions and Decimals. 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, we will explore what life was like for people in Britain in World War Two. 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.
Listen to the radio announcement that told the people of Britain that their country was at war with Germany. Jot down how you think people felt when they heard this for the first time. (Please note: most families did not have television at this time so listening to the radio was how they would have found out the news):
Now watch the opening scene from Goodnight Mr Tom (from 0:00 – 2:34mins). As you are watching, look at the different types of people who are sat in the church (families with children, an RAF officer and his wife, elderly couples etc.) and think about how they are feeling. Write down words and phrases that could describe this scene:
Now use a thesaurus or www.wordhippo.com to improve your vocabulary. For example, ‘a lady holding her husband’s hand’ may become ‘an anxious wife clutching her husband’s hand’. Using the words and phrases you have gathered, select one from the following written outcomes:
- Write a free-verse poem (there are no rules for this type of poetry) to depict the scene you have watched.
- Write a short narrative piece based on the scene.
Remember, if you are not sure or need any help with anything on here – just contact myself on Dojo.
