Please remember to sign the register before you start work, it is important for me to see who is working.
I have set up another TTRockstars challenge, this one is really important as it will allow us to see how much faster you are getting with your recall. For this challenge you need to go to the Studio section, you can see where that is on the picture below. By the end of the week you should all have a Rock Status and I will post the fastest 3 members of the class of the 3 most improved members of the class on our page.
1. Spend ten minutes on TTRockstars - don't forget your Studio challenge! We're almost at the end of our competition with Titan, make sure you earn some points against them too so that we can WIN!!!!!!!
2. Read through the pages below and answer the questions in your workbook on pages 143-144 (you must use bar models in your workbook, they will make it much easier for you)
Have a look at the Anchor task:
What key information can we get from the problem? Can you draw a bar model to represent the information? The food in the red bowl costs £1.65 per bowl.
Drawing your bar model
Now that you've drawn your bars, let's see how our you could use them to solve the problem.
It Let's Learn 1, the bars show that Elliot bought 5 bowls of noodles. Holly bought 3 bowls of noodles (dark purple) and 2 cheaper bowls of appetisers (labelled 2 x £1.65) this section is smaller because it is cheaper. Finally, you can see the palest purple labelled £8.50 - this represents the difference between what they have each paid, if Holly had spent £8.50 more then she would have spent the exact same amount as Elliot did and their bars would be the same size. This information will help you to solve the problem.
Let's Learn 1 is the only one that answers the question in the Anchor Task, the other methods show how you could use that information to solve different word problems.
Copying out the bar models, so that you can label them, will help you to do complete the questions.
We've done lots of story writing recently, so I wanted to try something different. Today we are going to look at poetry. Below is a helpful sheet all about the structure of a cinquain. Use the sheet to help you write your own cinquain poems. We studied these before Christmas in class, so you have written them before. You can write about any topic you like - I'd love to see some photos of them when they're finished!
I've written a list of topics in case you're struggling to think of an idea:
There are some more helpful resources here if you are struggling:
I'd still love to hear your thoughts on the opening of Malamander, which I shared last week, email me to share your first impressions!
Spend at least 20 minutes reading the book you have chosen to write a review on, then answer the questions below:
If your book is non-fiction:
All of these questions will help with your review later in the week: the more detailed your answers are, the easier you will find writing your review.
I got the page below from https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/i-am-an-amazing-person-t2-inc-4 in case you would like to print it off. I want you to read the sentence openers and complete them, thinking about all the things that make you amazing. If you don't want to or can't print it off, then you can set your work out however you like (a drawing like the one below, a mind map, a list of sentences, a poster) but you must use the sentence openers. I'll write them out below in case you can't see them properly.
