Tuesday 31st March
Hi everyone! I hope that you are all Ok at home. Please be kind and helpful to your parents too…it’s a strange time for everyone.
Please just do what you can and please don’t worry if you don’t do it all. I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough.
Today’s activities are as follows:
- A 10 minute buster from CGP Reading
- A 10 minute buster from CGP Grammar
- A 10 minute buster from CGP Maths
- One Page of the big CGP Maths book
- The question is: Should children wear uniform for school?
- Yesterday you wrote a list 3 reasons why children should wear uniform to school and backed up each point with a reason why and then 3 reasons why children should not wear uniform to school and backed each point with a reason why. Today, you are going to use the information you wrote on Purple Mash to begin to draft a balanced argument. I have put 2 examples on the links below as well as examples of sentences starter and cohesive devices.
The layout should be:
- Introduction – What the balanced argument is about and there are two opposing views
- Paragraph of the reasons for/supporting school uniform. Give each point, followed by and explanation and evidence (you can make facts and statistics up if you want or quotes from made up Head Teachers or children)
- Paragraph of the reasons against/not supporting school uniform. Give each point, followed by and explanation and evidence (you can make facts and statistics up if you want or quotes from made up Head Teachers or children)
- A conclusion - giving your own opinion about what you think.
- If you have an IDL log in...use it each day and complete the lessons.
- Complete one of the indoor activity suggestions in your Home Learning Pack
- One of my favourite styles of art is called 'zentangle'. (Google it and you'll see why!) All you need is a pencil, a black pen and your imagination!
CHALLENGE ONE – Free Tangle
This is probably the first time you’ve come across this style of art, so your first challenge is to simply practice some patterns.
Create a grid of 8 squares on a piece of plain A4 paper. In each square, create any patterns you like. Use your imagination or Google ‘zentangle patterns’ to get some inspiration.
Draw your patterns in pencil first and then go over the lines with a black pen. You can use a pencil to add shading, just like I have here with my ‘free tangle’:
Any completed work can be emailed (firstname.lastname@example.org) or dojo’ed to me.
And as always, any questions please just ask.
