Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We are going to be sharing our plans from our English task, as well as looking at our story by Anthony Horowitz and checking we are all still ok with algebra. If you can join us for Zoom please do.
We will use the same password and meeting ID as usual.
Remember we are looking at the f sound made by the ph digraph. We are in a good battle with Willow Class this week so don't let them take the lead.
Today we have quite a bit of reading to do! We are going to read a bit more of our story, A Career in Computer Games, and complete a few tasks around this story.
Watch the first video here and once you have completed it, you have a second video to watch here.
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.
Today we will be using our knowledge from Tuesday to help solve and make formulae (number sentences) that we can add the unknown information to. There is as always a video to help you, watch carefully as some of the language she uses can be tricky if you aren't concentrating.
Good luck and remember we are here to help if you are getting yourself confused.
Another art task this afternoon, something that could be lots of fun. Using perspective you can make it seem like things are much bigger or much smaller than they seem.
It is a photograph challenge, but if you have a camera at home, or a camera phone you can use, you can capture some interesting and amusing images. Follow the link to see a video about how it can be done.
This is something you might want to get siblings or parents to help with.
Alternatively, if you feel you want to get away from technology and stop staring at screens why not try an Andy Warhol piece. Andy Warhol was a famous artist, and come to fame in the 1960s. He is famous for some of the pictures below. His art, pop art, took ordinary things and played with colour and shape, making them very unusual art and very 60s.
Follow the link here and have a go at taking some ordinary things making them pop with colour. Try a collage of four things or people that all shiny with unusual and bright colours.
