EARLY MORNING TASKS
Wake up your brains, ready for today's learning.
Today, you are going to make spelling puzzles. The idea is, that you write one of your spelling words out, but it up letter by letter and challenge yourself to put it back together. If you can get someone else to write it out for you, so you are just putting it back together, that would be even better. Below, is a simple example of this, for you to have a look at.
Start with your Times table booklet and then 10 minutes of TTRockstars - I will be looking tonight to see our top 3 players in the last week!
Then fluent in 5
Today we are going to look at the next step, multiplying 4 digits by 2 digits. Watch the video here and then complete these questions.
Here are the worked examples:
Now have a go at these questions. Remember to send your workings out to us so we can celebrate (and help if you are stuck)
Read Chapter 5 of our Story (these copies have been sent home to all children - It is really tricky reading from a screen, I know!)
Then answer the following questions from the VOCABULARY, INFERENCE and RETRIEVE (you obviously can do more if you like!)
ENGLISH - New section with the title of 'English' and LO written please.
LO: I am learning to write the problem of a story by using innovation.
Today is the last part of our problem writing. This is the part that we know the best as we have been looking at it and learning it for the past two weeks. This should therefore, be the easiest part to change.
Again, underneath is the section that I will be expecting you to write and change. This is taken exactly from the text 'the game.' Then underneath that, is the model text. This is the innovation text. The bit that I have changed to make it my own and follow on from the story I have written so far. Finish yours off now by innovating the last given section.
SCIENCE - New section with the title of 'Science' and the LO written please.
LO: To be able to organise my knowledge on space into paragraphs.
Today, you will be writing the first part of your essay. I want you to try your very best with these and make sure that you are writing in full sentences, connecting your ideas properly, using conjunctions, clauses and a fab use of punctuation such as commas, brackets and dashes. This is a great way of applying all of the work we have done on brackets, dashes and semi colons.
In order that we can really put our all into the essay, we are going to split it up over two lessons. Today, you will be writing the first 3 paragraphs.
1. The shape and size of the Earth, Sun and Moon.
2. What causes day and night?
3. Exploring seasons.
Remember how we organise our essays under subheadings, and use all of the notes that we have on our essay plan, to turn into sentences. You will need your plan out which you completed last lesson to help you.
I can't wait to see your essays. Remember this shows me how much you have learnt over the topic.
