Good Morning Callisto Class
Welcome to Wednesday's Home Learning page - I hope everyone is full of energy and ready to go. Remember to sign the register and let me know how you are and what you have been doing.
Hello to Eithan, Ellie and Weronika who all said hello on yesterday's register. I am missing everyone too Miley, but hopefully we will all be able to get together soon.
Well done to Alexander who found a 9 letter word with a value of 21 points in yesterday's scrabble challenge - Shantay, Isabelle and Senna were in class and also worked it out.
Thanks to Nicole, Marko, Weronika and Max for their recent photos of home learning - check out our photo book to see what they have been up to.
Today's science task involves an investigation with ice - so I would suggest you start your day by looking at the science task at the end of the page so you can be prepared.
Are you ready? Let's get active with a workout form Joe and his Wife Rosie - follow the link to find today's workout
Remember to try the 3 minute fitness challenge and let me know how many squats, push-ups and burpees you can do in a minute.
Practice your multiplication facts for 10 minutes on TT Rockstars or in your times table books.
Today we will be doing Lesson 13 of Converting measure and changing journey times from hour into days. So remember 24 hours = 1 day. In order to calculate how many hours there are in 7 day you would multiply 24 by 7 (24 x 7 = 154 hours). To work out how many days there are in 288 hours you would divide 288 by 24 (288 - by 24 = 22 days). there is also an element of rounding needed in today's task so if you are left with 1 - 11 hours round down and if you are left with 12 hours or more round up.
The In focus task ask us to work out the arrival date of a journey that takes 210 hours and 20 minutes. To be able to do this we need to know how many days 210 hours is equal too. In the Let's Learn slides Sam shows us how to convert 210 hours into days using a whole part model. Can you explain Sam's thinking? Ruby rounds Sam's answer up - can you explain why? When you have finished exploring these ideas have a go at the Guided Practice questions in your Home Learning Journal.
When you are ready complete worksheet 13 on pages 123 and 124 of your workbook - you will find the answers at the bottom of our page. Don't worry if you don't complete the questions they are challenging.
If you are struggling with our Maths No problem Lesson visit the Oak Academy for an online lesson converting time with teacher support- just follow the link below:
Today we will be using a new picture as a stimulus for our writing and thinking back to our learning about adverbials earlier in the year.
Castle in the Snow
Task 1: Look carefully at the picture and write a list of the first 10 things you notice. Record your list in your Home Learning Journal remembering your perfect presentation.
Task 2: Imagine a great treasure can be found in the castle - write a sentence explaining what do you think it could be?
Task 3: Story planning using adverbials
Adverbial words and phrases tell the reader more about the verb (action word) or clause (part of a sentence) within a sentence. Adverbials give extra detail about when (time), where (place), how (manner) or the frequency (number). Draw a boxed up plan like the one below into your Home Learning Journal and answer the questions below using adverbials to help you plan ideas for your story
|Q1: When did they approach the castle?||Think of and list up 5 time adverbials here that would tell the reader when the story happened.|
|Q2: Where was the castle?||Think of and list up 5 place adverbials here that would tell the reader where the story happened.|
|Q3: How did they make their journey through the snow?||Think of and list up 5 manner adverbials here that would tell the reader how they moved in the story.|
|Q4: How did the hero feel?||Think of and list up 5 manner adverbials here that would tell the reader how they felt in the story.|
|Q5: What happened next?||Think of and list up 5 adverbials here that would show the passing of time within your story.|
Here is an example to help you get started:
Find out more about VE day and why this year's celebration is important by reading the text below. When you have finished answer the questions in your Home Learning Journal - remember you do not need to write out the questions but you should write your answers in full sentences.
For this task I would like you to continue your focus on adverbs and use this week's word of the day 'speculate' to create an adverb acrostic. I have provided an example below for ideas and you may use an online dictionary to help you find interesting adverbs.
Follow the link below and find today's free game so you can practice your spelling words
If you cannot access the site practice spelling the following words in your Home Learning Journal
Topic - Science
Topic - French
Start today's lesson by listening to the following song - it reminds us how to greet people in French and ask questions.
Use the song to write 3 questions in French with the answer - you can pause the song to help you write both your questions and answers.
Watch the second clip to learn new ways to ask someone how they are.
