Foundation - Art @10am

It's time to draw-a-long with Rob! Remember to pop a photo of your completed picture on Seesaw so we can create a weekly gallery of your great drawings! 

Spelling - rainbow spelling.

Using the 10 spellings you selected yesterday, try writing each letter in a different colour - this helps the spelling to stick in your head.  Write each word at least twice.

For example: government        government

English

Today we are continuing with relative clauses.

Firstly, use the revision slides to refresh your memory - you can use the powerpoint from yesterday if you need to.

Secondly, read 'Aardvark Man and Honey Woman.' Read the text again, this time highlight the relative clauses used.  Remember they might be embedded relative clauses or after main clauses which can be harder to spot.  Keep an eye out for relative pronouns - the list on page 7 will help you.  Check and mark your answers with page 9.

 

Use 'Ideas for a superhero' to help you design your own superhero.  Think about;

Where your superhero came from,

What powers your superhero has,

The famous crimes your superhero has stopped,

Where your superhero lives,

What makes your superhero vulnerable.

 

Once you have completed your planning, write a paragraph about your superhero.  Remember to include relative clauses - both embedded and after the main clause.  It is your use of clauses we are really looking for. 

 

Finally, make sure you proof read your work and edit in any missing punctuation. Either colour in with colouring pencil / underline your use of relative clauses and then self assess your use of relative clauses.

 

Maths

Today you will be focusing on converting metric measurements of length. You will have come across millimetres, centimetres, metres and kilometres before. Which measurement is best for a small length?  Which measurement is best for the biggest length? Ask yourself how many millimetres are in a centimetre, how many centimetres are in a metre and how many metres are in a kilometre?

 

Have a look at the uploaded PDF poster. You can see that to convert between the different measurements we either multiply or divide. When we want to make our unit of measure bigger, we need to divide our number. When we want to make our unit of measure smaller, we need to multiply our number. For example, 100 centimetres is the same as 1 metre. Metres are a bigger unit of measure than centimetres, but I still needed to divide my centimetres by 100 to make a metre. Similarly, centimetres are a smaller unit of measure than centimetres, but I still needed to multiply my metres by 100 to find my centimetres.

 

I have asked you to copy the poster onto your sheet as a helpful reminder for you. You might find the worksheet a little cramped, so why not complete your work in your exercise book instead. Make sure you are showing your workings. 

Foundation - RE

Today you will be looking at symbolism within Hinduism. What symbols do you recognise in other faiths? Think about the symbols see when walking down a shopping high street. Why do you think symbols are used?

 

The symbol we will be looking at today is called Aum. Have a read through the Powerpoint to find out some more information about this symbol.

 

We would then like you to carefully draw out the symbol and label the three separate parts.
