  • Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes reading a book of your choice. If possible, adults to ask questions about the book after they have finished reading. Link to possible questions you could ask: https://www.abss.k12.nc.us/cms/lib/NC01001905/Centricity/Domain/36/Parent%20Book%20Talk%20flyer.pdf

Click on Week 7, Lesson 3 – Rounding Decimals. 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 – This week explores all things to do with health, hygiene and heroes. What is a microbe? Which scientists made important advances that impact our lives today? What is the NHS and who do you consider a hero in this current climate? When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online. Please note some clips display unmoderated comments underneath, which may be considered inappropriate. Adult supervision is recommended to ensure these are not accessed.

Your Task - Imagine the three scientists you have read about over the past two days, Edward Jenner, Louis Pasteur and Alexander Fleming, have all been nominated for the award, ‘Greatest Scientist of All Time’. You have been asked to select the winner. Based on what you have read and watched, write down who you think deserves to win the prize. Make sure you write a clear and detailed explanation of why you have selected your scientist over the other two.

 

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

 

Thanks,
