Today we will be looking at lesson 5 and beginning our learning on Area.  Area is the measurement of space within a shape.  In the In Focus Task, Ruby is using 1 cm squares to work out the area inside a rectangle.  In Let's Learn 1 she begins by filling the rectangle with 28 squares.  In Let's Learn 2 and 3 Ruby uses different methods to calculate the area - I prefer method 2 - what about you?  

 

Have a go at the Guided Practice questions in your Home Learning Journal - in the first question you can count the total number of squares.  In the second question count the number of squares on the length and then the width - when you have counted the number of squares can you multiply the numbers to work our the area?  In the third question you have to count the length of squares on the first picture and the width on the second picture before multiplying.  Remember to write your answers in the same way as you are shown on the slides.

 

When you have finished have a go at worksheet 5 on pages 139 and 140 of your workbook - you will find the answers at the bottom of the page.

Today I would like you to have a go at 'writing to persuade'.  In this type of writing you have to build a strong and convincing arguments in order to encourage the reader to agree with your point of view.  Remind yourself of the features of this type of writing by looking at the knowledge organiser below:

 

 

Now choose your topic from the table below:

 

Do you think a monkey would make a good pet? Who is your greatest hero?                   
Phones should be allowed in school. The internet - Good or Bad?
Everyone should learn to swim. What is the best superpower?

 

Once you have chosen your topic think of two or three reasons you will use to justify your opinion.  

 

Begin your writing and use the following list to help you structure your writing

 

Start with an introduction: An introduction lets the reader know what you are writing about.

Write your opinion on your topic: Give reasons for your opinion and explain these reasons.

Finish with a conclusion: A conclusion sums up your reasons so that a reader is convinced of your opinion.

 

Remember to:

smileyPay attention to your spelling and punctuation.
