Monday 8th February
Good morning Sycamore class.
Here are the activities I would like you to complete today.
I suggest trying to do the English and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Please save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail photos of your work to me each day if you want.
Today you are going to start planning the climax of your narrative. The climax is when the problem in a story reaches its peak. It is when the story gets most exciting and when there is the most tension. In The Man on the Moon, the climax is the part where the little girl finally finds a way to communicate with the old man. You will be thinking of words and phrases to ‘show not tell’ what is happening and how the characters are feeling during the climax of the story. I have attached a sheet with the key pictures in the Resources section.
Here is the link to your lesson:
1. Spend about 15 minutes on TT Rock Stars. (If you’d like your table changing, let me know via email)
2. Open up the ‘Power Up’ activity from the resource section below and use it to warm up your maths brain.
3. This week we will be looking at dividing. Today we will remind ourselves about dividing mentally. Click this link to watch a short video from me about dividing mentally. https://youtu.be/qQY6qvrgTzY Then, open up the ‘Dividing Mentally’ activity in the resource section and complete the questions.
It's Monday so let's practise our handwriting and our spellings at the same time. Concentrate on the joining of your letters, have you joined all the letters that need to be joined?
This week we will be looking at China and Chinese new year. Open up the ‘China Fact file' and look through it. Also take a look at (https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/countries/china/) making some notes as you read. After that, open up the ‘China writing frame’ and fill in the boxes with information about this fascinating country.
