Daily Learning – Friday 22nd May 2020

Mathematicians

Have a go at the flashback.

Below are today's questions exploring line graphs further. If you need reminding how to plot line graphs, or how to read them, look back at yesterday's tutorial video.

If you fancy a challenge, have a go at the reasoning questions, remember these do need to you explain why as well.

 

Authors:

Writers:

Yesterday you had a go at writing your own poem/rap/haiku.

Today's challenge is to perform your it. Do you need to use props? Don't forget to think about your tone of voice, volume of you voices and any actions to help bring it alive for your audience.

If you want to see how Michael Rosen performs one of his poems (a personal favourite of Mrs Loader's) watch the video further down

 

Reading:

Choose your favourite book, or a book that you have enjoyed recently.

Can you choose some of these challenge cards and complete them using your chosen book?

You could write the numbers 1-51 on pieces of paper, put them in a hat (or bowl), and see what ones you choose!

*Some are related specifically to non-fiction, so think about whether your book is fiction, or non-fiction, as some of the challenges might not apply.*

 

Enquiry:

Create a comic strip showing the journey of a piece of pizza as it journeys through the digestive system.

Be creative with both your illustrations and speech.

We look forward to reading them!

Daily Learning – Thursday 21st May 2020

Mathematicians

Have a go at the flashback then watch the tutorial video about line graphs.

Use the video to help you answer the questions.

If you fancy a challenge, have a go at the reasoning questions, remember these do need to you explain why as well.

 

Authors:

Writers:

Today we would like you to have a go at writing a poem.

The example in the video is a rap poem which focuses on the beat using syllables and rhyming couplets. You could have a go at continuing the poem, or you could write your own. You could write a rhyming poem, a rap poem, or a haiku which is only 3 lines - 1st line = 5 syllables, 2nd line = 7 syllables, 3rd line = 5 syllables.

 

Reading:

Read through the extract and answer the questions.

 It is REALLY important that you answer in full sentences.

Once you have written your answers, compare them with the answers provided - are they as clear and have you written in full sentences?

 

Enquiry:

Read through the information attached below.

As an engineer, your task is to design a device to help astronauts to eat lunch in outer space!

Think back to the Eatwell plate (https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/eat-well/the-eatwell-guide/) and how important it is to eat a balanced diet - even when you're in outer space!

The video below gives you an idea of designs that are already in place - can you be creative and think of any of your own designs?

Once you've created a few designs, let me know what you're going to put in each one - making sure the astronaut gets a healthy and balanced lunch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbDTFewYx68

Enjoy!

Have a go at today's flashback.
 
Today we are carrying on interpreting charts by comparing the data in them and finding differences. You will need to apply your knowledge of the four number operations to help you solve these questions.
 
If you fancy a challenge, have a go at the challenge questions.
 
Authors:
Writers:
There is a short video recapping what syllables and rhyming words are below to help you with today's activity.
Can you work out how many syllables are in each of the words and 2 rhyming words for each word given. It will help to understand this as we begin to write poems tomorrow.
 
If you fancy a challenge you could write a haiku which follows the pattern of 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the third line, or you could have a go at writing a short rhyming poem using the words you thought of.
 
Readers:
Read through the instructions about baking a cake and then solve the sequencing questions.  If answers are attached as well.
 
Enquiry:
Today you are going to have a bit of fun making your own digestive system, recreating the process of eating food, digesting it and pooing it out - yes, you read it right!
Here is a brilliant website that will talk you through the experiment step by step, using only a few ingredients and some tights!
 
Enjoy - and PLEASE upload a photo or video of you doing this as I'd love to see it!
 
Life Skills:
Another 3 ideas to have a look at.  Which one(s) will you choose to have a go at?

Writers:
Today I have filmed myself performing a poem by Michael Rosen called Welly Boots.
Your challenge today is to find a poem you like and record yourself reading/saying it. It doesn't have to be a long poem either, mine is very short, but funny (or I think it is :) )
Do you need any props? Could you use the computer to add special effects? I look forward to watching your poems.
 
Readers:
The questions relating to this extract focus on what the 'main idea' of the whole text paragraph is. So when you read through it, do so carefully, ensuring that you think carefully about what the author is trying to tell you.
 
Enquiry:
Read through the PowerPoint about the functions of the digestive system below and complete the activity.

Daily Learning – Monday 18th May 2020

Mathematicians:

Have a go at today’s flashback. Then have a look at the video.

This week we are starting a new unit of learning based on Statistics where we will be drawing and interpreting different types of graphs.

 Today we will recap how to draw a bar chart.

 I have linked my data to our Enquiry thinking about some of the food I have bought this week and how much it weighs.

What topic will you make yours about?

If you fancy a challenge, try to create scales which are larger, like mine or where the data has mixed units of fractions which you need to convert. I look forward to seeing your bar charts.

Writers:

Watch the video as a reminder as to how to edit a piece of writing methodically and accurately.

Once you've done that, go back to Friday's newspaper article and edit any errors you can find.

Focus on: -spelling -punctuation(either adding in or changing) -clarity

The examples I showed you in the video are below. Bonus point to those of you who find the spelling in the final example that I didn't underline, or edit, but it is spelt incorrectly!

As a challenge you can edit your own newspaper article, it's always more difficult identifying errors in your own work. You can see if you can upgrade some of the vocabulary too to make it even better! Remember, always have the reader in the forefront of your mind!

 

Readers:

Have a read through the text and have a go at the questions – you will need to ‘read between the lines’ today.

 

Enquiry:

Today we start our new enquiry 'Why are more people becoming vegetarian?'

We will begin by looking at the digestive system and the different parts involved when digesting food.

This is something completely new - so it would be helpful to watch this video before reading through the PowerPoint.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwrsL-lCZYo

Once you've watched it, read through the information and complete the activities.

There are a few difficult words, so make sure you ask a parent if you're pronouncing them properly!

 

Life skills:

Here are the next 3 activities for you to try – you could do one, or try all three.

 

Athletes:

Don't forget to check out PE with Joe Wicks on Youtube for some fun, but energetic exercise you can do in your home.
