Wednesday 22nd April
Hi everyone! I hope that you are all OK at home. It was so nice to hear from most of you yesterday J Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Even if it just to say hi! J
**Please just do what you can and please please don’t worry if you don’t do it all I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough. Also, if you get stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. J **
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 13 spelling and one of the grammar activities on Purple Mash 2Do
- Complete an arithmetic task on Kids Classroom Secrets
- On the class story and class web page, I have attached a worksheet based on ratio (the maths topic that we has been working in school). Please complete this if you can. You don’t have to print it off, just record your answers and working out in your green book or do them on the squared paper I gave you and stick them into you green book. I will post up the answers tomorrow for you to self-mark.
- If you have an IDL log in...use it each day and complete the lessons.
Watch the Teacher’s TV Jewellery Box clip:
- Write down your prediction – what has happened? Why?
- Watch again and write down some noun phrases to describe what you can see in the shop, e.g. glistening necklaces, mysterious statues. Now build these into interesting sentences, e.g. Glistening necklaces, which dangled in all areas of the shop, caught my eye. The clip builds up a lot of tension.
- Read the attached document to remind yourself of how to build tension and suspense in writing. Have a go at writing a narrative for this scene. Choose a perspective to write it from such as: the lady, the shop-keeper, the jewellery box. Don’t forget to build up the tension.
- Share your story with a family member in your home – how did it make them feel?
Science - LO: To label the parts of the circulatory system.
Using the information on the PowerPoint below, draw and label the lung diagram using the key words in your Green book. Watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9dg9j6 for more information. There is a worksheet attached below to help you also.
CONTINUED DT CHALLENGE: To last all week.
I pinched this idea from Mr Scott who oversees DT in school! 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! You will have until Friday to complete this so don’t worry.
I challenge you all (if you can) to do the following:
- Plan – In your Green Book, 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. In your Green book, 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 in your Green Book 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?
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!
