Tuesday 30th June

Hi Everybody 

Hope you are okay.

Here is your work for Tuesday.

Please start by reading the Picture News Paper for this week/

First Session - Spelling and Grammar


In spelling we are continuing to look at common letter strings, including prefixes and suffixes. Please take the next five words ( ache,anchor,echo,mechanic and stomach ) learn what they mean and how to spell them. Write each word in a sentence and put it in your exercise book.

In grammar today we are doing another year 5 grammar mat.

Then find out more about the moon by reading these sources. Jot down any facts that you find interesting:

Dr Maggie's Grand Tour of the Solar System by Maggie Aderin - pocock ( pages 4-5 )

Dr Maggie's Grand Tour of the Solar System

National Geographic Kids website - Facts About the Moon : ( Page 3 )

Imagine you have been asked by the BBC to join Professor Brian Cox on a CBBC TV special about Space . He has asked you to do a five minute presentation on the moon.

If you are unfamiliar with who Brian Cox is, here is in action ( Scroll down to the video ' How earth was created ' )

When creating your presentation, consider these points:

- Think about writing a script or key notes for your presentation- making sure you practise aloud so that it stays within the five minute limit.

- You may want to use a computer programme to create a presentation, such as PowerPoint, or design and create posters which you can refer to as you speak.

- Think about how to keep your audience engaged - maybe you could include some rhetorical questions which make your audience think more about your topic.

Once completed, have a go at performing it to someone in your house.

If possible , you could also record it to send to me.
