Tuesday 7th July 2020.
Activities to complete today (if you can):
Click on Week 11, Lesson 2 – Reasoning about 3D shapes. 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 – Space (Part Two) Discover what it takes to become an astronaut, the exciting space explorations lined up for 2020 and beyond, and delve into the fictitious planet, Pandora. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.
Find out about the history-making SpaceX rocket which has just landed at the International Space Station – making notes as you read: BBC Newsround – SpaceX docks to ISS: NASA astronauts land safely and make history:https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52526849
Imagine Newsround have asked you to do a TV news bulletin for their show about the SpaceX rocket landing.
Task - Write a news report script about the landing. To help when writing your news script, think about including these points:
- Introduce yourself and explain what your news is, in a short summary sentence ‘Good evening, my name is… Tonight’s main news is…’
- Stick to the key facts – making your news as clear as possible
- You may wish to include quotes from the astronauts which can be found in the article
- Give a closing statement to end your bulletin ‘I’m … and this has been tonight’s news. Goodnight.’ To get an idea of how Newsround currently present the news, watch the show here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/news/watch_newsround
As you are writing your script, make sure you practise reading it aloud. Ask a member of your family to listen to you read – they may be able to help make suggestions for how you can edit/improve your report.
Remember, if you are not sure or need any help with anything on here – just contact myself on Dojo.
