Aspire, Care, Learn for Life



Our English lesson today is grammar based with a focus on cohesive devices. This is the fourth lesson from the unit. We will complete the fifth lesson and write our own instructions on Monday. 


Follow the instructions from the video- remembering to pause and complete the activities when asked to. Use the 'next activity' or green dots at the bottom of the page to navigate through.


Remember to add to your magpie page as you watch the video.


For your task, create a list or table to record the cohesive devices in the text.

After completing your task - resume the video for feedback to self mark and edit your work before uploading on seesaw.


If you have any questions or technical issues, send us a message wither via email or on seesaw.


For your spellings today, Mrs Barr from Oak Academy has created a word search. Either print out the copy below, or spot the words on your screen. Can you find all the words? Good luck!!



Today's maths is on MyMaths. You will be learning how to measure angles and practising using the website. You may have a protractor at home, but not everyone will which is why we haven't got a worksheet for you to practise on. 

1. Read through the Powerpoint and the lesson before completing the homework. It explains the rules you need to follow when measuring an angle.

  • Place the small dot on the protractor directly above where your two lines meet. Do this as accurately as possible.
  • Line up the bottom line with the line that runs across your protractor. If you loose your centre point alignment, reajust this.
  • Once everything is where it should be, count your degrees carefully. You will see that you have two sets of numbers. This is useful when our angle is in the opposite direction. Use your common sense. If you have a really small angle, it isn't going to equal 160*.

2. Measure the angles on MyMaths using the interactive protractor. 

3. Look at the shape and measure each of its angles.

Foundation - Outdoor Learning.

this week, the focus for Outdoor Learning is literacy / English. Can you build your own den to read a book in? How about using natural materials to spell out your spelling words? Could you take a stick on a walk with you and tie of things you find in order so you can retell your walk when you get home? Or have you got your own English / literacy based activity to try outside?
