Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We will have a look at our reading and writing tasks and check in with our maths work.
We will use the same password and meeting ID as usual.
With this week's spellings having origins in different countries it is important we know what they all mean. So your task today is to join up or come up with a definition for our ten new words.
Today we will continue to discover a bit more information about the Blitz. Can you read the texts here and then answer the retrieval and inferential questions given in the video. We will think about the different types of question being asked and will talk through these later on, checking for understanding and comprehension.
Today we will be exploring two more areas within SPAG - expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials.
They both sound quite confusing, but actually they will make sense and once you get your head round them, they are quite easy to use. Expanded noun phrases are exactly what they sound like - a list of words to describe a noun within a sentence. Fronted adverbials are adverbs at the start (or front) of a sentence.
(45 - 60 minutes)
Two maths activities for you today, solving one and then two step equations. Hopefully the first one doesn't cause you too many troubles and use our knowledge of algebra to help set out your equations correctly.
Have a go and if you have any issues let us know on zoom later or send us an email.
This half term in science we are looking at electricity. This is a great topic and one where we have lots of different practical activities to do. Now with the good news being that you will all be able to come back to school as of the 8th March we can do these in school (as you won't all have the equipment at home). So in the two week until then we are going to have a look at the more academic side of electricity and get you to do a few small experiments at home. Hopefully, we are then all ready to go with the practical stuff as soon as we get back.
Today we are looking at static charge, if you watch the lesson (found here) with Miss Simkin she will teach you all about static electricity and how we can make it ourselves. She has a go at 3 little experiments using a balloon, you don't need one yourself as you can observe what happens in her experiments, but if you have one in the house feel free to join in and have your own go.
Listen carefully and see if you can fill in the activities as she goes. Once you have finished the video there is a little quiz at the end for you to see how much you have learnt.
