Wednesday 6th May

Hi everyone! I hope that you are all Ok at home. It is so 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 work 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. If you wish to do alternative activities, that is also absolutely fine. Just do what is right for your family situation. Also, if you get stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **

 

 

 Today’s activities are as follows:

  1. Complete Day 23 spelling and one of the grammar activities on Purple Mash 2Do
  2. Complete an arithmetic task on Kids Classroom Secrets
  3. Maths –Below, I have put a worksheet based on angles in special triangles. Please complete it if you can. You don’t have to print it off, just record your answers and working out in your green book or do it on the squared paper I gave you and stick them into you green book. I have posted the answers for yesterday’s work for you to self mark and I will post the answers  for today’s work tomorrow for you. Things to remember, the 3 angles in a triangle always add up to 180° and in the special triangles on this work - 2 of the angles at the bottom are the same.
  4. If you have an IDL log in...use it each day and complete the lessons.

“The main idea I had was an image I had of a man attempting to sell a robotic boy to a childless couple at Christmas. The novel progressed from there.”

 

Think about and record in writing, responses to the following:

• Why is this image so powerful?

• Why do you think Pádraig Kenny chose to open his novel with this scene?

• What impression does this scene give the reader of Mr Absalom and the robotic child (Jack)?

 

Using this week’s extract, create a drawing to accompany this scene.

• How will you draw Mr Absalom, Jack, Christopher and the childless couple?

• How does your drawing help the reader to gain an understanding of each character?

 

 

Geography – LO: To learn about the physical geography of Greece including Mount Olympus.

 

** You will have today and tomorrow to complete this Geography work so maybe take a day to research and plan a tomorrow to present it **

 

Use the following resources to create a presentation about the physical features of Greece and include a section on Mount Olympus. As with the Science this week, you can present it in any way that you wish. Possible suggestions are:

  • PowerPoint Presentation
  • Create a 2Quiz program on Purple Mash
  • Make a 3D model of the body and add labels
  • Film a short video of yourself (and other members of your household if you wish) explaining it – you might like to show different food and exercises in your video.
  • An information sheet (as we have done previously in class) over a double page spread in your green book.

 

Physical features may include:

What the landscape is like – hills, mountains etc. Are there any forest, Lakes, rivers, seas etc. Are there any greenery/plants/animals etc. What the climate like etc
