Wednesday 10th

Good Morning! What will you do today to make you feel good?

 

Here are the activities we would like you to complete today. You can choose what order you do the activities in, but we 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 a copy to us each day.

 

1) English

Today you are going to edit your climax to The Man on the Moon. You will be checking and improving these things:

  • punctuation
  • ambitious vocabulary
  • show not tell
  • range of sentence types

 

Here is the link to your lesson:

2) Maths - Geometry

Lesson 3:

Learning focus - Learn about the faces, edges and vertices of 3D shapes.

This lesson includes:

  • a catch-up quiz
  • two videos
  • one activity – 3D shape hunt (this time concentrate on the faces, edges and vertices that you can see)
  • an interactive game at the end

 

3) Spellings

It’s test day! Mrs Downings will test you on your spellings during the morning Zoom lesson. Listen carefully to the group you are in so you know which words you need to write down. After the lesson, you can ask an adult to mark them and tell us your scores during the afternoon Zoom lesson. Below, you will find the new rule for your new spellings.

 

4) Topic

This afternoon we are looking at the Chinese dragon, specifically a tutorial on how to draw one. The ‘How to draw a Chinese Dragon’ video below is a really good, step-by-step tutorial. The teacher says that the video says that it is advanced level for children who are 13 but I think you will all be able to do this – give it a go! As always, I’d love to see your pictures.

 

5) Forest School 

Let’s see if you can make a paint brush from natural materials. Open up the ‘Natural Paintbrushes’ resource and read through it. Look around your garden, or the park, or along your daily walk and see if you can find some good items to make a paintbrush. Once you’ve found some, tie them together with some string, wool or elastic band and see if you can paint with it. I’d love to see your pictures.
