Good Morning Oberon!
I have been so impressed with all of the work i'm seeing in your emails! I'm a little bit slower putting it on the website this week, because i'm in school at the moment but I will put them all on the class page.
Task 1: Spend 5 minutes on TTRockstars
Task 2: Complete a page from your arithmetic booklet
Task 3: Can you work out what each of the number sentences below are? You should be able to identify patterns from your number facts. If you're finding it tricky, I will put a helpful hint underneath the task.
The numbers being multiplied (factors) are the same, so my multiple must be a cube number. The only cube numbers between 0 and 12 are 1 and 8, so the squares must represent 2: 2x2x2=8. Now we now that all of our purple squares are 2 and our yellow semi circle is 8. You should be able to solve lots of other equations now you have those facts.
Write an explanation of how you solved the problem, similar to my explanation above to find the first key facts. Your explanation only needs to cover the most important equations, you'll be able to change several of the equations once you've identified a few key answers.
Yesterday you watched, 'Dreamgiver'. Rewatch the clip (you'll have to go to yesterday's learning page) and then read the passage below. The passage summarises what happens in the clip and gives you an idea for a story. Write a story describing what happens when the dream egg is dropped onto the shadow serpent, what nightmares will follow for that child? I'd like you to write the story in 3rd person.
Silently a group of orphans sleep in an orphanage.
Quietly, the window shutters open and in crawls a mysterious creature.
He doesn't look too friendly at first but we soon see what his plan is.
This is the Dreamgiver and by cracking his dream eggs he makes sure the childrens' nights are pleasurable. He creates the dreams by cracking the eggs onto stories, posters and ballet shoes. But what will happen if an egg is accidentally spilt on something not so nice? Well that is what happens.....
A 'dream egg' is knocked off the bed and onto a 'shadow serpent,' this is surely going to turn into a nightmare for one of the unlucky children.
Task 1: Read the book that you have chosen to review for 20 minutes. You should almost be ready to write your review by now, depending on how long/challenging your book is. I want to start putting your reviews up early next week, so keep reading!
Vocabulary: From your reading write down your 5 favourite words that you've read today - they could be any word class, but you must tell me what you like about them. For example, your word could be a powerful descriptive word, or a specific verb could help you to really picture how a character behaves.
Task 2: Find evidence in the Aboriginal artwork below to answer the questions. You do not have to copy down the questions, but should answer in full sentences.
Read the activity sheet below and follow the instructions. This is the first part of your Aboriginal Art Project, you should have a good understanding of what Aboriginal art is and the meanings it holds from our reading lessons this week. Don't forget to share photos of your art work, by the end of this lesson you should have a small piece of Aboriginal artwork of your own. You could use pencil, colouring pencils, felt tips or paint depending on what you have at home.
