The Tyrrells School

Aspire, Care, Learn for Life



Today you will be learning and practising how to construct lines accurately. 


First, have a look at the PowerPoint. There are 2 main 'parts' to the PowerPoint with an optional extra to each part. If you would like to challenge yourself further (or if you are in the Mastery Maths Group) have a go at these extra options too. 


The worksheet is laid out in a similar way, containing 3 questions, each with an optional extension. 

As above, if you would like the challenge or are in the Mastery Maths Group, feel free to try these questions.

If you start the questions and find them particularly difficult, there is no obligation to carry on (just as there is no obligation to do them at all should they be too difficult!)


If you do not have a ruler, below is an attached ruler from yesterday's lesson. 


If you do not have access to a printer, feel free to label the questions in your exercise book (e.g. 1a) and write your answers directly there. 

In order to accurately draw your lines, turn your exercise book to a landscape orientation. Each line will then be equal to 1cm. 


As always - an extra problem solving and reasoning set of questions for those of you who want to go even further!


Today we have another non-chronological report for you to read and it's on sharks! First we would like you to read it with an adult. Once again there are three levels of difficulty to chose from - 1, 2 or 3 stars.

You should by now have a good idea of the features of this genre. Discuss these with your adult. Now open the features checklist - how many did you come up with?

Finally we would like you to complete the checklist for the 'Sharks' non-chronological report. If you are able to print the report you could underline or highlight the features on the text as you find them. 


(You don't have to answer the comprehension questions today but we have left them on the PDF in case you want to!)


This week our focus is on Homophones and Near Homophones. Today we would like you to have a go at the 'Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check' activity below. Please feel free to complete this activity in your exercise book or on paper if you don't have a printer.
