Wednesday 1st April 2020.
Activities to complete today (if you can):
- 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
- Grammar: ‘Countryside Contrasts’ activity on Purple Mash. This activity will test their ability to identify nouns (things), adjectives (words that describe things) and adverbials (words or phrases that explain more about a sentence).
- Maths: ‘Finding Matching Expressions’ activity on Purple Mash. This activity tests the children’s ability to read questions carefully, as well as explain what simple fractions actually are (trickier than you might think!).
- Maths: ‘Ordering fractions’ activity on the ‘Attachments’ section of our class page (in today’s date). Send your photos and answers to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on Class Dojo. The answers are on the attachment.
Activities to be completed by next Monday:
- Writing: Please send me any of your written work about Jason and the Argonauts to my email address (email@example.com) or send me photos of it on Class Dojo. I realise now having reflected on this that this was not the easiest of tasks. I will be changing my writing tasks going forward! As you will now see below!
- NEW TOPIC CHALLENGE: Food technology.
Your task this week is to do a little Design Technology Project (DT Project). As you are no doubt be spending a lot of time in the house at the moment, it seems right that we do our bit to help our parents with the cooking!
I challenge you all (if you can) to do the following:
- Plan – Plan a meal that the whole family can all eat together (excluding babies on formula of course!). You need to see what ingredients you have in the house – you are not allowed to buy new things from a shop. You can plan what it looks like (draw a diagram), plan your ingredients list, write a method (a step-by-step instruction sheet on how to make it), write out a list of equipment you are going to need.
- Make – you need to make the meal (please send me plenty of photos, this will make me very happy to see you all cooking!)
- Evaluate – write a paragraph or two afterwards reflecting on how it went. Questions you could answer are ones like: Did you get it perfect? Did you use the correct amounts or ingredients? What went well? What didn’t go as planned? Did you have to change something from your plan? If so why? If you were to do this again, what would you do differently and why?
This only needs to be sent to me by the end of the week – so you have 3 days to get this sorted!
*Please follow all sensible health and safety advice. Children should never be left alone with ovens, hot pans, knives etc or anything that could bring any harm to them. If in doubt – don’t do it! I know you all know this – I just need to remind you of it – and of course WASH YOUR HANDS!
