Hello again!  It was lovely to see so many of you on the live lessons today. We hope you got on well with the first set of independent learning tasks. Here are the new tasks for Wednesday.

English Task:

L.O: To be able to include information in an effective way in a non-chronological report.

Today we have a spelling starter activity and a revision activity before the main activity – see the PowerPoint if you missed the live lesson.

Look at the facts on the PowerPoint slide – which of these facts could we use in our report?

Task 1

Look at the FANTASTIC FACTS and decide which ones would make good fascinating facts for our report.  Share and record on Inspiration Page.

Do you need to add anything to the facts to make them clearer or more interesting? Edit and improve.

Ext - Can you add a conjunction to give more information?

Task 2

Which of our report features could we use to make our facts stand out? 

A DID YOU KNOW? box.

How could we include more than one fact but set out the did you know box carefully?  Look at the example on the PowerPoint.

Complete a DID YOU KNOW box – lay out carefully with bullet points and use conjunctions to add more detail.

Science Task:                   

L.O: To investigate what shadows are and why they are formed.

Look at Planbee slides 3-5. Think about where the shadow is, the shape of it and how it got there. Look at slide 6. Read the information about why shadows are formed.

You might like to watch this video – there are some light sources and some shadows. Can you work out what object is making the different shadows? https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/clips/zshxpv4

Look at remaining slides, looking carefully at the definitions of transparent, translucent and opaque.

Investigate

Collect some objects / materials – if possible use a clear plastic food bag, bubble wrap, book, some clingfilm, piece of card, greaseproof paper, tin foil, wood.

Which materials / objects do you think will make the darkest shadow? Which do you think will not make a shadow? Can you record your predictions.

I predict that the darkest shadows will be made by the …

I think this because …

I predict that _________________________________________ will not make a shadow.

I think this because …

Explore what kind of shadow is produced by each of the materials. Hold up each object towards a light source (torch, sunlight from window) and sort objects using findings of shadows to see if object is opaque, transparent or translucent. You might like to use or refer to worksheet 3A (attached to bottom of blog).

Think though your results. Also refer back to your predictions – were you right?

 

Reading - Our school policy of reading at least five times a week will continue. Please encourage your child to read something every day! They can read different text types - magazines, recipe books, instructions, food labels and anything that they will enjoy! They could read to themselves, to a sibling or another family member.

Please continue to practise spellings and times table ready for our return to school.

 

We are also aware that families have a lot to juggle so please just do what you can. Remember, we are here to support you in any way we can. We are happy to be contacted to clarify anything with the learning tasks so please don't hesitate to ask. 

We would love to see what your child has been doing. So, if you can, please send us some emails with their work attached or with some photographs of what they have done. 

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

We are looking forward to seeing the children again on our TEAMS lesson in the morning.

Mrs Bromley, Mrs Coaten and Mrs Kenny.
