Well done on all of your hard work so far this week. Here are some more tasks for you. English, maths and geography today.

English Task

L.O: To be able to proof read for spelling and punctuation errors. To be able to assess the effectiveness of own writing and suggest improvements.

The starter today is a quiz about the suffix ly (PowerPoint attached).

Then reread your instructions you have written so far. Remember to refer to the colour challenges – tick off what you feel you have achieved or note down on a piece of paper what you need to include today.

If you haven’t finished your instructions, once you have read them through please continue to write them.

Once you are finished you need to think about editing.

If you didn't do the live lesson, you may like to work through the editing slides on the PowerPoint to see the colour S.C challenges. There is an example of text on each page that needs editing according to the colour challenge. See if you can improve the text. Then have a look at your own writing to see if you can spot similar things to improve.

After editing, you may want to write up your work neatly adding in your changes. If you needed to finish writing your instructions today then you have probably spent plenty of time working on English already and you might want to finish now. But if you do want to write up and you have time, you can do so on the snowman bordered paper (attached to the blog) or alternatively you may want to add your own illustrations to plain paper.

Maths Task

L.O: To be able to compare statements

We are going to be comparing statements today. If you missed the live teaching or want to go over anything again, have a look at the attached PowerPoint.  

 

Have a look at this video to remind yourself of the symbols:  https://video.link/w/nvRGb

Today we will be using <, >  and = to compare multiplication and division statements.

For your independent task, you can choose your own level of challenge. Your resources are attached at the bottom of the blog.  

Yellow Challenge: Experiment with the symbols and objects around your house. For example, make two collections of objects showing different amounts and put the correct symbol in between them.

Extension: Can you write two numbers and put the correct symbol in between?

Blue Challenge: Download the blue and green maths challenge document – Answer questions 1-4. If you are finding them a bit tricky, you can use objects from around your house to help you solve them. The answers are at the end of the document if you would like to see how you have done.

Green Challenge: Download the blue and green maths challenge document – Answer questions 5-8. If you are finding them a bit tricky, you can use objects from around your house to help you solve them. The answers are at the end of the document if you would like to see how you have done.

White Challenge: Download the white maths challenge document – Have a go at completing the multiplication and division table. Can you find the all of the possibilities for each answer?

Geography Task

L.O: To find out about some of the key geographical features of each continent.

You did a fantastic job identifying the different continents last week. Today we are going to start thinking about the key geographical features of each continent.

Think of a definition for:

  • Rivers
  • Lakes
  • Mountains
  • Climate

 

Now read through the Geography PPT week 3 PDF to find out about some of the different geographical features in each continent.

Activity: Download the Geography independent learning week 3 PDF – There are a lot of worksheets on the PDF but please don’t do them all.

We would like you to complete worksheet 3A – Research one continent. Try to answer the following questions:

  • What is the tallest mountain?
  • What is the longest river?
  • What is the largest country?
  • What is the smallest country?
  • What is the climate like?
  • What oceans and seas surround it?

 

Extension:  Keep scrolling down the same PDF until you find the information cards (pages 9-12). Use this information to help you complete the table on worksheet 3C.  

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Please look out for future blogs as we will be setting new learning tasks daily.
