Maths - Converting between years, months and weeks
Please start with the recap quiz. Next, watch the Oak Academy video, pausing the video when you get to an activity. The main sheet contains your activities for the whole video. You will also need a pair of scissors and some glue.
When you have completed the video and activities, give the exit quiz a try too.
We will be using our plan from yesterday's learning to write our build up paragraph so make sure you have this to hand. Please make sure that you read and understand the success criteria as following this will ensure that your writing is successful.
Mild - please focus on the ambitious vocabulary part of the success criteria. Make sure you use those synonyms that we talked about in the vocab and planning sessions to make your writing pop!
Spicy - please focus on the ambitious vocabulary and show not tell parts of the success criteria. Showing and not telling is a really important skill we can use in our writing to make sure that the reader is engaged throughout.
Hot - please focus on all of the success criteria and make sure you are doing this in a concise way. Concise means that you don't have to write heaps and heaps of sentences to get your point across, include all of the strategies we have been learning to make the 3/4 sentences you do write are varied and interesting.
Volcano challenge - can you use split speech?
Please check out the this week's guided reading activity in the PDF which is World Book Day themed! There sheets are differentiated by stars, see below for a key. Mild option will be based more on the find and retrieve, vocabulary skills we have been practicing whereas spicy and hot focus more on inference and predicting skills. Choose whichever one suits your confidence on this text not just what you would usually choose in class.
Mild - *
Spicy - **
Hot - ***
World Book Day Activities
Today is World Book Day which is all about celebrating children reading. We always celebrate this in school so we wanted to do something to acknowledge this at home. Each year the World Book Day organisation publish online lessons run by famous authors . They also have some suggestions on what activities you can do after you have watched the lesson. Watch the short video below by Jess French and then choose one or more of the activities on the PDF attached below. My favourites are below which are the ones we will be doing in class:
1. Read the extract on the PDF below and then have a think or discuss with an adult at home.
2. Write a poem about a world in which we solve all of the environmental issues that Jess talks about in her book. Begin your poem with the words, ‘Imagine a world’
3. In her book Jess explains that ‘kindness is key’. By acting in a way that is kind to plants, animals, the environment, and other people, we have the power to save our planet. Think about how any of your traits, characteristics, and talents help to make the world a better place for humans and/or animals. Think of an example of a time you have shown one of these traits.
