Wednesday 3rd Feb
Today's task will get you to infer. Inference is where you use the clues from the text to work out your own ideas. It’s a bit like being a detective where you figure something out from clues and evidence. You are going to think about chapter 7 where the characters discuss Wilbur being fattened up to kill for meat. We want you think about this conversation and how hard it must have been for Wilbur to hear. We want you to put yourself in the shoes of the different characters and think about how they would feel talking about this. How do you know that's how they felt? How do they show their feelings? Remember to use evidence and clues from the text.
You're going to think about how Wilbur, Charlotte, the sheep and Fern feel during this conversation. Remember to explain in detail. You can also draw an image of each character to show their feelings too if you wish.
There is a sheet you can complete if you wish.
In English today, we will be continuing our new writing sequence... MARY POPPINS!
This will all lead up to writing a diary entry as though you have spent the week with Mary Poppins herself!
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 we will be looking at FRONTED SUBORDINATE CLAUSES. Follow the slides which explain these in detail.
Then, complete the tasks on the sheet.
TALKING TEACHER SLIDES!
watch the videos below to hear the teacher talk through the slides in more detail.
For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Fractions'.
This morning we would like you to look at: Unit & non-unit 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.
Topic- Strikes and Flying Pickets
In our topic lesson today, we are looking at Geography and how coal is formed and what it is used for.
Begin by following the slides and watching the videos. These will help you to understand the process of coal being formed.
The slides give you some questions to think about or discuss with someone at home.
The slides also give you a mini task to try. There is a sheet below to use for this. (Remember, you don't have to print, you can work from the screen.)
You may find you come across quite a lot of technical vocabulary today which could be tricky to understand. There's a vocabulary clarification sheet to help you understand some of the words more carefully.
For the task today, we'd like you to create a flow chart to show how coal is made. Include pictures and an explanation of each stage of coal being formed. You might find using the slides, the mini task sheet and the example sheet helpful. When you have done that, underline or highlight all of the technical vocabulary you have used.
