Wednesday 20th Jan
Today we'd simply like you to read the rest of chapter 5 of Charlotte's Web. As you read, keep thinking about the events that have happened already. Keep making predictions as you read and visualize the events in your head as they happen.
(There's no writing today... just reading!)
This week we are moving on to the next step in our writing sequence. This is the part where we write our own non-chronological report on Barn Owls!
To do this, you need to use all of the vocabulary, grammar skills and amazing facts 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!
Today’s job is to write the first main paragraph about: Food and Hunting
Add this on to your piece of writing, underneath your paragraph from yesterday.
This paragraph will include what owl eats, how much they eat, when they hunt, how they are adapted for hunting and other facts related to hunting and food. Remember to pack it with facts!
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.
Writing a draft/rough version to edit and then writing your best version might be a good idea!
For the next week or so we will be focusing on 'Area'.
This morning we would like you to look at: What is Area?
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.
Topic - Strikes and Flying Pickets (focus Geography)
LI: Identify mining counties across the UK and explain the geographical trends
Today we are looking at mining counties across the UK. This part of the topic focuses on Geography.
Clowne use to be a massive mining town but there were lots of other mining towns/villages across the counties in the UK.
Go through the power point (see link below). It will take you through exactly what you need to do and which resource to look at so follow it carefully.
