Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We are going to be going through our maths on Zoom today, while having a look at our finished non-chronological reports on pandas.
We will use the same password and meeting ID as usual.
Today, can you please read chapter 17 of War Horse and then have a go at answering these questions.
We are looking at our array of prefixes today and their meanings.
Have a go at the activity below organising the words into the different prefixes, can you add other words you know as well.
Today we will be completing our first attempt at a Non-Chronological Report.
In order to finish this report successfully, we need to learn how to summarise or conclude effectively. However, before we get onto our conclusion, if you have any more information paragraphs that you need to write or finish, please complete these first.
Once you have done this, watch the video here to learn how to write an effective conclusion. Then plan and write your own conclusion for your panda report.
Once you have concluded your report, I would like you to read through your report in its entirety. What do you think you have done well? What would you like to do better next time? Make any changes you feel would benefit your writing or underline any features you think you have used well, as this will come in handy when we write our next NC Report later on this week.
Tomorrow we will be starting to think about a new NC Report all about giants and we have an expert guest joining us on our Zoom call tomorrow afternoon!
Maths today is practicing the work we did together yesterday, looking at finding percentages of amounts, using this information to find different amounts of numbers.
We will continue to have a look at these tomorrow and the video is here if you need a recap from yesterday but have a go at the worksheet below.
With it being a potentially rainy afternoon (like so much of the last week) we have two activities for you to choose from. Below is a document that has tree Top Trumps cards in. You can use these for a game of Top Trumps or see how many you can find on a walk with your family. If you would prefer to be a bit creative, then how about an arty challenge: using leaves, petals, bark and grass, can you create a more natural version of a Diwali rangoli? Using things you can find around on a walk, make a simple repeating pattern.
