Please don't forget our TTRockstars battle with Callisto, they are beating us by miles at the moment!
I'd like to know how confident you are feeling with our Maths topic, please comment on the register telling me if there is anything you would like extra help with or if you're feeling really confident.
A few of you didn't sign in on the register yesterday, please remember to do so when you begin work.
Remember your perfect presentation when you are working in your Home Learning Journal.
Complete 10 minutes on TTRockstars.
Your knowledge organiser from yesterday will be very helpful today. I would recommend using the multiplication and division method to convert between units of measure.
Look through the Let's Learn below, complete the Guided Practice in your journal and then work through pages 131-132 in your workbook.
Take a look at the picture below before trying to complete the sentence challenges. You will need to draw on your understanding of figurative language and sentence structure to help you with today's learning.
Sentence Challenge -
Can you write five sentences using a simile or metaphor?
|Can you improve these boring sentences?|
Can you think of similes or metaphors to describe the cat?
Remember a simile would compare part of the cat to
something else using 'like' or 'as' and a
metaphor would compare part of the cat to something else
by saying it was something else.
Try focusing on parts of the cat e.g. eyes, fur, whiskers,
tail, nose, claws or ears
For an extra challenge focus on how the cat moves or pounces
The cat waited in the shadows.
She looked around the room with her eyes.
Her whiskers twitched.
Spelling and Handwriting
Use your spelling words from yesterday to practise your handwriting in your journals. Make sure you are spelling the words correctly and use each of them in a sentence.
Listen to today’s audiobook from David Walliams (he reads a new story each day) and write a review of the story. If you can’t listen to the audiobook, write a review of a story you have read recently. Use the questions below to help structure your review:
Introduce the text: What is it’s title? Who is it aimed at? Is it intended to be funny, scary, romantic - which genre does it belong to?
Did you enjoy the text? Why or why not? Were there any characters you particularly liked/disliked? What was your favourite/least favourite part of the story?
Would you recommend the text? If yes, who would you recommend it to and why? Would you read another David Walliams book, or listen to another of his audio stories after listening to this one? Do the stories remind you of any other authors?
Topic - Art
In art earlier this term you explored animals and how they use camouflage to blend into their surroundings. Use the sheet below to create a newly discovered wild animal. If you don't have a dice available choose your favourite parts to create your animal. Can you draw a picture of it in it's natural habitat using colour and pattern to ensure it blends into it's surroundings? You have designed the animal, so you can decide where it lives but it should be camouflaged.
