Tuesday 9th Feb
Yesterday you read through chapter 9. Today we are going to be summarizing the events in this chapter. You may need to keep referring back to the text to help you. If you made any notes yesterday, these will be very helpful too! Remember, summarizing is where we think about the main events or most important events that take place.
Today, we would like you to use the sheet. This gives you events that happen in chapter 9. However, the order that these events happen have been mixed up. Your job is to put the events into chronological order- the order the events happen in chapter 9. You may need to look back at the text to help you.
Then, add a picture to each event to summarise what happens in the chapter.
This week we are moving on to the next step in our writing sequence. This is the part where we write our own diary entry as though we have spent a week with MARY POPPINS!
To do this, you need to use all of the vocabulary, grammar skills and fabulous ideas you’ve developed over the last two weeks to help you!
We will add a paragraph each day, building up to our amazing piece of writing by Friday!
Begin by watching the video below as this will help give you more information on what to include and what grammar features and vocabulary we are aiming to include too. Remember, you are pretending to be Michael or Jane and are writing from your point of view as one of the children. Add today's paragraph underneath yesterday's paragraph to continue the piece of writing.
Today we will be writing the second paragraph. This is where Mary and the children are tidying the bedroom/nursery. You could talk about:
- How Mary makes this fun
- How Mary sings to the birds and sings to herself in the mirror
- How they use magical powers to click their fingers and tidy everything
You may find watching the Mary Poppins videos again useful too.
Use the help sheet to help you include all of the grammar features and vocabulary in your piece of writing. Use the WAGOLL to help you too.
It's a good idea to write a rough/draft version of your paragraph and then edit it to improve the spelling, vocabulary choices and punctuation. You could then do an improved 'showpiece' version.
If you are able to print and want to use the bordered paper, you can!
For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Fractions'.
This morning we would like you to look at: Equivalent fractions
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.
Today is 'Safer Internet Day 2021' This years theme explores reliability online. The internet is an amazing source of information and opportunities but it is important to know how to stay safe online.
Follow the links below for activities and information for Safer Internet Day, there are some videos to watch and then a quiz to test your knowledge of what you have learnt! If you wish, you can then design a fact file about all you have learnt about reliability online and send it to your teacher! You could even present it as a video or power point to test your ICT skills!
Keep safe whilst online!
