Foundation - Art @10am

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.

English - Non Chronological reports

Today we are beginning a new unit based on Non - Chronological reports. During the unit, we will learn about the features of non-chronological reports and develop our vocabulary skills. By the end of the unit, you will write your own non-chronological report about a mythical creature.  Our focus today is based on reading and in particular, word meaning. 

 

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.

 

Mr Emmerson talks about the book he is reading - 'Orphans of the Tide.' This book has been highly recommended and is in my 'to read' pile. He also mentions it its the second week back after half term - we are not using the English blocks in the same order!! 

 

As it is the start of a new unit, begin a new magpie page for instructions. Remember to include words of the day, elements of the success criteria and exciting ideas you have magpied.

 

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

Spelling

Our spellings this week are based on the spelling rule i before e except after c. Can you write a sentence for each spelling word to show you understand the meaning? Or you could write a short paragraph with your spelling words.  Mr Emmerson gives you some ideas in the English video.

Please remember to add two of your own spellings to make your total up to 10.

       

Maths

Today you will be revising factors and multiples. Can you remember the difference between the two?

A multiple of a number can be any number that falls into the times table of the original number. Multiples of three are three, six, nine and so on.

A factor of a number is a number that can be multiplied to make the original number. A factor of six is three. Two is also a factor. We drew our factors on bugs.

The word common means 'found in both'. So common multiples of 3 and 4 are numbers in the three and four times table.

 

1. Read through the Learning Reminders to remind yourself of how to find factors and multiples. 

2. Choose your level of challenge. Find the common multiples and factors of the numbers given. Have a go at the bit stuck section if you need to. 

Foundation: Science

 

Today's lesson is based on separating materials. You should know that a  can have three states of matter. It can be a solid, liquid or a gas. Imagine that two materials have mixed together. You might have two solids mixed together or it could be a liquid and a gas. You want to seperate them back into their two groups. How you do this will depend on the two material's state of matter.

 

1. Read through the Powerpoint. A supermarket has mixed two materials together. They have mixed  sand and water, salt and water, raisins and flour, and paper clips and rice. BEFORE LOOKING AT SLIDE 9, can you think of the best way to describe your two items together?

2. Look at the separation processes from page 13 to 16. Make sure you read them carefully to find out which type of materials would work best with the method. 

3. Choose your level of challenge on the worksheet. You will be asked to match up the process with the mixture of materials. For the one star you can copy the pictures at the top for the diagram. If you are completing the three star, try to explain how the separation process with work.
