It's time to draw-a-long with Rob! The draw-a-long is live at 10am, however the video will be added to the website if you would prefer to draw at a different time.

Pop a photo of your completed picture on Seesaw so we can see your great drawings!  Remember that once you have the outline of your drawing, you can adapt it to develop your own personal style.


Can you create a chant with actions to help spell out your spelling words? Like a cheerleader chant! Make sure you have enough space around you before start jumping around inside your homes!!  Each time you rehearse a spelling, use the same actions. These actions will help you remember the letters in order if you repeat the same routine. Can you create 10 different routines for your 10 spellings?


The focus of our learning today is parenthesis. Remember that parenthesis is a word or phrase that is usually demarcated by commas, brackets or dashes to provide additional information. If the parenthesis is taken away, the sentence would still be complete and make sense without it.


1) Begin the introductory quiz.  Click your answers and submit. Remember to review your answers by viewing your score. Close the quiz to move on.


2) The next activity (or third green dot) is to watch a video clip. See if you can identify examples of parenthesis. 


3) Whilst watching the video clip, can you create your own sentence by changing the parenthesis within this sentence: Spiralling above the palace - creating gentle ripples - delicate bubbles circulated the tallest tower. Record your own ideas in your book. Consider whether your additional information is describing the palace or bubbles.


4) Choose one of the pictures provided - or your own. Write at least three descriptive sentences using parenthesis. Remember to punctuate with either commas, brackets or dashes. 


5) Click the 'Resume Video' button at the top right of your screen. this will talk through some possible answers.


6) Try the exit quiz on parenthesis.  Remember to review your scores!


Today we will be answering reasoning and problem solving questions on converting between units of time. If you found yesterday's work a little challenging, you have a choice. You can either continue with the TYM sheet from yesterday, perhaps moving onto Challenge B when  you feel confident. Alternatively, you can choose from one of the sheets below. 


1. Read through the Powerpoint, which introduces how some of the questions will be set out. Use your workbook to write down your workings out and your answers as you go through. 

2. For some of the questions you will need to make a careful choice about which unit of measure you want. For example, when comparing a time in minutes with two other times that are in seconds, it would make more sense to convert the minutes time into seconds. If you did this the other way around, you would have two numbers to convert instead of one. 

3. Move onto the reasoning questions. Remember that reasoning simply means explain your reason. Try to be as detailed as possible and use the correct mathematical language where appropriate. You may choose to draw a diagram to support your answer. 

4. Choose which sheet you would like to complete. There are three challenges to choose from. Have a look at all three sheets first to see which one you feel more confindent with.

Today you will be looking at how Hindu's view death. It is important to study how religions view the end of a life.


1. Read through the Powerpoint to understand a little about how Hindu's view death. We will be continuing with this for the next session as well.

2. Cut out the cards. Sort them into three categories. 1) Things that Hindu's would agree with 2) Things that Hindu's would not agree with 3) Things that are not relevant
