Tuesday 2nd March
This week we are focusing on chapter 11. You should have read this yesterday, but if you didn't, go ahead and read it now before the task.
Today, our skill in focus is predicting. Predicting is where we use our knowledge of what has happened already and use this to make sensible guesses of what will happen next. Watch the video below to know more about predicting.
By the end of chapter 11, there are lots of visitors to the farm and the Zuckerman’s aren’t looking after their farm anymore. In your own words, carry on the story with what happens next. You could use one of the following sentence starters to help you;
Wilbur couldn’t believe all the attention he was getting and he felt…
Mrs Zuckerman spent all day showing people around the farm…
Fern tried to sneak onto the farm early before all the visitors arrived but…
Write a paragraph that continues the story. You can include events that happen and feelings of the characters. You could use speech too if you wish.
In English today, we will be continuing our new writing sequence... SUPERHEROES!
This will all lead up to you pretending to be a reported for a newspaper and writing all a newspaper report about the bus disaster we read about from the book, 'My Brother is a Superhero!'
This week, we will continue the sequence like we always do, by developing and learning all of the grammar techniques we will be using in our piece of writing.
Today, is our second lesson on using DIRECT SPEECH.
You may want to watch the video on punctuating speech from yesterday, to help you to remember all the rules for including speech correctly.
Take a look at the worksheet below. There is a report on the bus disaster but the reporter forgot to put in inverted commas to show direct speech. Can you help them by copying out the paragraph and including the inverted commas?
For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Fractions'.
This morning we would like you to look at: Subtracting from whole amounts
Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks.
There are slides too (same as the video) if you need to look at this more slowly and carefully.
Then, complete the worksheet. Look at the questions on a screen and write your answers on paper. Remember, the later questions are normally problem solving and reasoning questions so give these your best shot. You may need a little bit of adult explanation for these.
This week in PSHE we are starting our new topic - CHANGES, the core theme to this topic is Health and Wellbeing. This topic aims to help you to understand and accept change we will be covering topics such as:
H6 Understanding good and not so good feelings
H7 Developing an understanding that change can cause conflicting emotions
H7 Acknowledging, exploring and identifying how to manage change positively
H8 Exploring changes
H14 Knowing where to go for help and how to ask for help
- Use the A -Z list (see below) see if you can write an emotion for each letter. For example, A - angry, B - brave, C - courageous.
- Once you have done this, I want you to think about different changes you have gone through so far. For example, learning to walk and talk, learning to ride a bike, starting nursery, starting infant school and starting Clowne Junior School etc. You may have lots of other changes too, for example you may have moved house or had a new sibling.
- Draw a timeline (a straight line with a starting point and a end point) and mark on changes that have happened to you from when you were born to your age now.
- Then label each event with an appropriate emotion - you can use the A - Z list to help you.
- Finally, rank the different changes according to how that situation made you feel:
1 - Being very comfortable up to 5 - Being very uncomfortable
