  • Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes answering reading comprehensions on Read Theory. Link: https://readtheory.org/auth/login?login_error=1
  • 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
  • Spellings: On the ‘Attachments’ section of our Class Page, you will find a spellings document. Please practise these spellings ahead of retaking the spelling test later in the week. You will need an adult or an older brother or sister to help you with the dictation during this task.

Click on Week 12, Lesson 3 – Converting units of time. 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: Focus Theme: Pixar Perfect Be prepared to laugh, cry and everything in between as you delve into three of Pixar’s best shorts. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online. 

 

Watch and enjoy the Pixar short, LOU here: Twistedsifter: Pixar’s Latest Oscar Nominated Short About Bullying is Worth a Watch: https://twistedsifter.com/videos/pixar-lou-animated-short-by-dave-mullins/ (Note: as this page contains links to current news pages and trending articles, some of which may be unsuitable, parental supervision is recommended). During the film, the ‘bully’ experiences a lot of different emotions. Look at the emotions listed below and find evidence or a scene from the film which shows when the ‘bully’ felt these. There may be some emotions with more than one scene attributed to them. - Happy - Scared - Confused - Amused - Annoyed - Frustrated - Upset - Satisfied - Nostalgic.

 

Once you have completed the activity, answer these questions: 1) Why is the film named ‘Lou?’ 2) The main boy in the film is horrible, do you agree? Give reasons for your answer. 3) Who might this short appeal to? Why?

 

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

 

Thanks,

 

 

Mr Scott
