Good Morning Oberon!
Task 1: Spend 10 minutes on TTRockstars
Task 2: Complete 1 page of your arithmetic booklet
Task 3: Today's task is an introduction to algebra. The letters in each equation should be replaced by the matching numbers in the table at the top. Once you've completed the equation the answer has a matching number in the grid too, find the matching letter and jot it down to break the code. There is some BIDMAS in here. Please look very carefully at how I have solved the first clue, so that you understand what to do.
Look carefully at the symbols - some of the division symbols look like addition if you don't look closely.
X+W = 13+9 = 22 On the grid 22 = I, so that is my first letter.
2M When you see a letter and a number like this it wants you to multiply 2M = 2 x M, 3M = 3 x M
2M = 2 x M = 2 x 50 = 100. The letter for 100 is N.
N - K = 100 - 1 = 99 My third letter is O
D - 2A = D - 2 x 6 = Using BIDMAS I do 2x6=12 first. D= 12, so: 12 - 12 = 0. My final letter is L
I have the letters I N O L, they unscramble to make Lion as my first animal.
If you find this super difficult, just complete the yellow questions. We'll have time to look at the trickier ones when we're back in class.
If you're feeling confident, look at the challenge on the sheet.
This week we're working through this Bitesize lesson based on Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief. If you are able to, click the link below and watch Stephen Fry reading the extracts we'll be studying out loud.
Today we'll be looking at Extract 2 and Activity 2, which are below in case you cannot access the link. Read the extract below and then complete the activity in your journal.
Use the knowledge organiser on the left to help you plan and write a discussion text based on your bullet points from yesterday. Your text should be at least 6 paragraphs long, here is your structure:
Paragraph 1: Introduction - what is your topic? Why is it important? Who is involved in the debate?
Paragraph 2: Supporting arguments - Use quotations and statistics to support your ideas with our Point, Evidence, Explain structure. For the football topic there are lots of interviews with players online and the Prime Minister has spoken about it too - you could use their quotations. For the school topics, you could include quotations from friends and family.
Paragraph 3: Counter arguments, using statistics and quotations like in paragraph 2. This argument should link to the one you've made in paragraph 2.
Paragraph 4: Supporting argument
Paragraph 5: A counter argument to the points in paragraph 4
Concluding paragraph: Summarise the arguments on both sides and encourage the reader to review the information to reach their own conclusion.
Practise your use of suffixes on spelling frame
Here is your spelling list:
Complete the experiment below, you can use teaspoons of sugar rather than cubes and count them that way. Remember to check with an adult before you use any equipment around the house and ask them to help you with the hot water - it doesn't shouldn't to be boiling as this will break the glass, water from the hot tap is fine.
