Daily Learning – Thursday 7th May 2020

Mathematicians:

Have a go at today’s flashback, then watch the tutorial video about using dividing a 3 digit number by a 1 digit number.  Use this to help you answer the questions.

If you would like a further challenge, have a go at the challenge questions.  Remember it is also about your reasoning, not just the answer.

Writers:

Have a read through my Diary entry based on Wednesday 6th May.

I've written in the past tense for some parts, and also the future tense for the end.

Think about what has happened to you, and what you would like to happen tomorrow so you practise writing in these two tenses?

How can the diary entries you've written over the past few days be added into your scrap book?

Readers:

Read through the short extract and then answer the questions.

Answer the questions in full sentences please!

The answers are on page 4.

 

Enquiry:

Read through the PowerPoint and complete the activities.

Are you up for completing the challenge on page 15?!

 

Life Skills:

Today you are going to learn how to fold your own clothes without any wrinkles!

Judging by the way some of you (not all!) fold your school uniform up when you change for PE - this is something you need to practise!

There are lots of tips and tricks to help you out online. Post a picture of your flawless folding!

For today's diary entry, though it is dated Tuesday for my diary, I have written it at the start of the day, and thinking about what I might do. I've also included some of my thoughts on how I'm feeling. This is a great thing to do, as it is important to understand your emotions - all of them - and be able to reflect on them.

So today, write your diary thinking about what you might do, and how you are feeling. Is there anything happening in the near future which you could include?

Are there are musings (thoughts) which you have that could be interesting to look back on in a weeks time? months time? in the future?

I look forward to seeing your thoughts on a day.

Readers:

Read through the extract from Alice in Wonderland.

Answer the questions - the answers are provided too.

Nutrition Mission

Make a healthy eating lunchbox or dinner plate, using a combination of different foods.

You can present it as a poster, or you could even make it (with support from an adult if cooking is needed) and see how tasty AND nutritious it is.

Discuss the pros and cons of different foods, and explain the food groups.

This website is great to find out a bit more information about the different food groups: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/eat-well/the-eatwell-guide/

Fun facts can help bring the message home: did you know, for example, that a can of Coca-Cola contains the equivalent of TEN sugar cubes, or that the strawberry flavouring used in fast food restaurants to flavour ice cream and shakes contains more than 50 different chemicals?!

Are there any more surprising facts that could help others out with their nutrition mission?

Daily Learning – Tuesday 5th May 2020

Continue writing your diary. I've included things that I'm looking forward to, and also plans that have had to be re-arrange because of this.

Think about things that have had to change for you, have you had to re-arrange any trips? outings? birthday events?

I look forward to reading about your next day in lockdown.

'You've won a prize!

' Quite often when were searching the internet - the four words above pop up. But have you REALLY won a prize, and what should you do to receive this prize?

The answer is nothing. Do not click on it, as it is spam. Spam is unwanted email or messages from companies or other groups, usually trying to sell something. Often these companies want to enter details about yourself, and quite often credit card details which can lead to a loss of money.

As well as the examples of spam 'pop ups' below - I have attached a few activities for you to do based around spam.

After completing the activities, you should know: what spam is, strategies for safely managing unwanted messages and be able to identify different forms of spam.

Listen to an extract from Samuel Pepys Diary during The Great Fire of London https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/1hpn9ZzYcSMsWGWHBQbSkXM/4-samuel-pepys-and-the-great-fire-of-london-part-2 - it is near the bottom of the page.
We only know what happened during the horrible event in history because of diaries which people kept.
Diaries are vital clues into what life was like at different times. Think about Anne Frank, we only know what it was like for her, from her perspective, because she kept a diary.
 
Today we would like to start writing a diary entry about your time in lockdown. You never know in years to come, this could be a vital piece of evidence to show what life was like during it. If you would like to read the start of my diary as an example.
This task also links to your Life Skills task.
 
Readers:
Read through the text and create your own mini dictionary about the words which are bold and underlined.
 
Enquiry:
Our last topic in enquiry was Science based, we are now moving on to Geography.
Today we are are going to be learning about the different countries and cities in the UK.
Read through the PowerPoint and complete the activities.
Remember - you don't need a printer - discussion is just as powerful!

Coronavirus: 'We are living a GCSE history question' - BBC News 25th March 2020.
 
Lots of people are writing diary entries to document the current lockdown, whilst others are taking photos. Have a read through this recent new article to see some examples: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-shropshire-52270585
 
Although it is a difficult time, it is also a huge part of history - just like WW2 and the 1969 moon landing.
 
What we are living through will be talked about in years to come, and we will have first hand experience of living through it. What I would like you to do over the next few days (it could even be weeks) is take photographs that will remind you of this time. You could take a photograph of your street whilst everyone is clapping for the NHS at 8pm on a Thursday. You could take photos of all the rainbows and teddies you see in people's windows, or of the empty streets that are usually filled with people and cars. You could take photos of activities you have done, or photos of you learning from home, or you during you zoom session on a Wednesday. The list is endless....
 
These could be printed off in the future, and be put into a scrap book to remember this period in history.
 
We can always take positives from difficult situations, and this quote sums it up perfectly!
 
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain."
