Foundation - Art @10am

It's time for the second draw-a-long with Rob this week.  Remember to pop a photo of your completed picture on Seesaw and check out the gallery on the front page of this week's home learning. 


Use the Look, Cover, Write, check method with your spellings today.  How many can you get right?

Look - look at the first word, identify the tricky part.

Cover - place your hand or an object over the  first spelling so you can't see it.

Write - write down the first spelling word from memory.

Check - uncover the word and check to see if you have got it right - remember to check each letter. If you haven't got it right, underline the part where you have muddled letters to help you next time.

Repeat for each of your spellings - one at a time.



Today we are continuing with persuasion - in particular we are looking at adverts.

1) Watch the Waitrose Mother's Day advert twice.  Make notes about what you can remember. Do you think this is what the company wanted you to remember? Is the advert effective?  Complete the task 'Waitrose: Fact or Opinion'. Use F for fact, O for opinion and M if it is mixed (both fact and opinion).


2) Complete 'Investigating Fact and Opinion'. Follow the links to watch an advert or read the transcripts in your pack - however, it is better to do both. Record 5 key sentences from the advert. Decide if the sentence is fact (F) opinion (O) or mixed (M).  If it is mixed, colour code to show which part is fact and which is opinion.   Repeat this for another advert. How do they compare?


3) Choose an item that you have in your home - any item.  Write a script for an advert for that item.  Think about the facts and opinions  that the presenter will give. What do you want your audience to remember? Have you included the persuasive techniques you identified yesterday?


4) Share your script with a grown up. Ask them what they remember. Explain to them how you made it persuasive and what facts and opinions you have included.


Optional extras:

Share and perform your script.

Film your advert and upload onto seesaw.

Watch some more adverts and see if any have more opinions that facts.




Today we would like you to apply what you have learnt about converting between units of length to word problems. We have done lots of work on word problems before. Make sure you remember the following things:

Read - read through the question carefully before you answer it.

Understand - think about what the question wants you to find out. Do you need to find a total or                       do you need to find the difference? Underline the most important parts of the                                 question.

Choose - what do you need to do in order to answer the question? Do you need to add, subtract,                 divide or multiply? Does the question ask you to use more than one operation?

Solve - now that you have found your key information and you know what you need to do to find                 the answer, carefully complete the question.

Answer - remember that your answer should be in a full sentence. All the questions today use                   units of measure so it is really important to include this in our answer. For example, if the                 question is about cm then our answer needs to be in cm.

Check - we all make mistakes from time to time. Double check your answer by starting the whole               process again.  


There are four different challenges to choose from. Choose one of the sections from the Target Your Maths text book. If you're finding it a little bit tricky, then look at the Green worksheet that I have attached.
