Wednesday 1st April
Hi everyone! I hope that you are safe and well….Please continue be kind and helpful to your parents. I hope that you are managing to get out of the house once a day for a walk/bike ride for your daily exercise too!
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:
- 30 minutes on Read Theory – take your time – these are set at the level you are working at so you should be getting 80%+ if you are doing them properly
- Complete Day 8 spelling activities on Purple Mash 2Do
- Complete an Arithmetic, Grammar and Spelling activity on Kids Classroom Secrets
- Complete a Maths work sheet from your home learning pack
- Complete a Comprehension from your home learning pack
- The question is: Should children wear uniform for school?
Continue to use the information you wrote on Purple Mash to begin to finish writing a balanced argument and edit and upgrade it. Tomorrow, you will produce a polished/neat piece which you can email/dojo to me. 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.
7. If you have an IDL log in...use it each day and complete the lessons.
8. Zentangle – Challenge 2!
For this challenge, you need the Internet. Look at images of wild animals and see if you can turn any of their body parts into zentangle patterns. You could choose their markings, beak patterns, eyes, wings etc.
Choose 6-8 animals that interest you. Draw 6-8 splats on your page and create a zentangle pattern in each one, based on the patterns you found.
Here is mine as an example:
You can colour this too, if you wish.
Here are some wild animal prints to get you started:
Any completed work can be emailed (email@example.com) or dojo’ed to me.
And as always, any questions please just ask.
