Tuesday 29th June 2020.
Activities to complete today (if you can):
Click on Week 10, Lesson 2 – Drawing lines and angles accurately. 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 – Explore what is in our Solar System, the famous ‘Space Race’ and the thrilling, true survival space story – Apollo 13. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

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