Today we are going to be concentrating on our reading in English. We are reading a recipe from our Stone Age chef, Chef Ug. He has written us a recipe for Boiled meat and nettle dumplings. Have a read of it below and see if you can answer these questions.
Spelling day today. Can you get a grown up to test you on your spellings from last week.
As of 9am your new spellings will be on Spelling Shed and you can find them below as well. We are looking at words ending in le. Have a go at practicing them.
We are continuing our look at different measurements. On Friday we converted mm to cm.
Remember there are 10mm to 1 cm. You can see that on any ruler (maybe your parents have a tape measure at home you can use).
Today we are looking at centimetres (cm) and metres (m). We measure bigger things in metres, like you for example.
There are 100 cm in 1 m.
Have a go at the questions below and see if you can match them up. The last question is a real challenge, if you feel up to it try solving that one.
If you feel up to it, how about keeping active and trying a few of these challenges over the next few days. We made this during lockdown last time - so some of these you wont be able to do but how many can you complete.
Today we are taking what we know about different lengths and using that to compare them. We will do this comparing mm to cm and cm to m. On the document below there are 4 questions for you to have a go at. Don't get tripped up by having to use our greater than >, less than < and equals to = symbols.
A good non-chronological report will need to be full of facts and detail so we need to collect some facts and detail about our chosen topic.
We have chosen to do our report together on a pangolin. This is a weird and wonderful creature that look surprise and does some very interesting things.
So can you use the links and information below to collect information about the pangolin. You will want to find out about its appearance, diet, habitat (where it lives), some interesting facts and something surprising.
Create a knowledge web with all the information you can find out on it. Have fun.
Today we are going to be finding out about the bones in the human body and what job they do for our bodies. Your first task is to use the image below of a skeleton and see if you remember or if you can research some of the names of those bones.
Now that we have started to think about our skeleton friend use the video on the BBC website here to see if you can find out what the job of our skeleton is.
Today we are going to be adding different lengths today, it is so important we use the skills we have learnt over the last few maths lessons. We might have to compare lengths before we can add them or we might have to convert lengths so all our measurement are in centimetre or metres.
There are five questions on the document below - I think we can all have a go at the first 4 problems. Number 5 is a trickier one - there are plenty of different answers - the challenge is to find more than one if you can.
Today is a little bit tricky as we are going to start sentence stacking our non-chronological report on pangolins. Now you will certainly need the information we collected yesterday. Without it you wont be able to sound like an expert.
Today we are going to be writing our hook and title to our report (easy I hear you say, but we need to make sure we are interesting the reader or they wont read our piece).
This is where it gets a bit trickier, in the document below is the grid we normally draw in our English books. We have collected a few words in each box and given you a sentence as an example - but you can all do a better job than use. We have put the 'boring' words we have chosen in red so can you think of better ones and improve our sentence.
Depending on what you have available at home pick one of the two activities below to have a go at this afternoon.
We are looking at animations this half term - we will be using an app called iMotion for the first time today. If you have access to this why not try and make your own flip book like we did in school but with photographs instead of drawings. Remember small movements at a time.
We are also going to be looking at the difference between facts and opinions in class today.
Facts are things that are always true.
Opinions are what you think about something.
Below is a worksheet for you to have a go at - can you give a fact and an opinion about the topics down the side. One thing that is always true and one that is an opinion.
We have seen from your emails that some of you have done such a good job adding different lengths. Today we are looking at subtracting different lengths. What we have been very careful of in lessons if making sure the units are the same, we can't take 4cm from 2m as they are different.
We are continuing our writing of our non-chronological report, today we are going to be writing the introduction to our report (tricky as we have to tell the reader some interesting facts but not use up all our information too early).
The document below, again has our grid, it follows on from our writing yesterday. We have collected a few words in each box and given you a sentence as an example - but you can all do a better job than us. We have put the words we have chosen in red so can you think of better ones and improve our sentence.
Yesterday we did some geography in class we were finding different mountains from around the world. We were using our atlas and google maps to locate (find) the mountains then mark them on our blank map of the world.
So can you do the same, can you find the mountains below and find the country they are in on our map of the world. Find:
Today we are looking at our times tables, as always on a Friday. So we are encouraging you to do the same - use ttrockstars to practice those tables you find tricky and why not challenge yourself against the world on arena mode.
There are also 3 lots of mymaths homework set, all looking at time - this can be tricky but use a clock in front of you to help answer the questions.
We are continuing our writing of our non-chronological report, today we are going to be writing the first special paragraph to our report.
The document below, again has our grid, it follows on from our writing yesterday and Wednesday. We have collected a few words in each box and given you a sentence as an example - but you can all do a better job than us. We have put the words we have chosen in red so can you think of better ones and improve our sentence. We are concentrating on what makes the pangolin special - today it is the scales.
Recap - what order do the pictures below go in - the story of Easter.
In class we are going to be writing a diary for Mary, the mother of Jesus, for three important days in Holy Week: Jesus entering Jerusalem (Palm Sunday), the day Jesus died (Good Friday), and the day Jesus came back to life (Easter Sunday).
In order to do this think about what happened to Jesus and how his mum would have felt. We are going to draw a picture and write a thought Mary would have had seeing what was happening on each important day.
