Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We are going to be enjoying another quiz and saying hello to our friends before we stop for half term. If you can join us for Zoom please do.
We will use the same password and meeting ID as usual.
Please login in to Spelling Shed and have a go at our spellings for this week.
Once you have had a practice, can you then have a go at correcting my spellings below.
Today we will finish reading through Anthony Horowitz's short story, A Career in Computer Games. Please can you watch the video here and then answer any questions in your workbooks.
Between Tuesday and Friday you will have the following task.
We would like you to write a completely independent NC Report, looking at whichever topic interests you the most. You might choose an animal, such as gorillas or hammerhead sharks, a mythical creature such as a unicorn or cyclops, or another area in which you are interested, such as rainforests or Saturn! Remember, it is very difficult to write a NC Report about a person because you will likely have to write this about a larger period of time, so this would become a biography rather than a non-chronological report.
Once you have decided the focus of your report, you have the following tasks to complete:
Good luck and please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need any guidance or advice. We know how hard you have been working in English and are really excited about seeing everything you have learnt over the last couple of weeks.
Your maths today is a mymaths challenge again, so we can see how you have got on this week with your algebra.
There are three homeworks set on my maths and they go up in difficulty.
We hope that you can all have a go at the first 2. Sequences which is the easiest, then equations 1, with our target being 80% correct. If you are feeling confident in what we have covered this week then have a go at equations 2, a challenge on all the things we have learnt this week.
We have spent this half term learning about the beliefs and faith of Hindus. Hopefully it has been interesting and you have learnt lots of new things.
Today we are completing our Hot Task.
Please could you tell me as much as you can remember about Hinduism, focusing on Diwali, their gods and how they worship. It is up to you how you present this information - you might want to produce a leaflet (or pamphlet), writing about Hinduism. You could even use some of the things we have learnt in English about NC Reports! Feel free to add in any pictures, drawings or photos if it helps.
