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 )
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.
Fluency - Number of the Week
Find out more about the Space Race and in particular Apollo 11's mission by exploring these resources.
Try a couple of the Joe Wicks five minute workouts. If you enjoy them try and do the others later in the week.
Hope you have enjoyed the work today.
