English - Balanced Arguments

Our English lesson today is based on identifying features of balanced arguments.


 The features we will be looking at are:

  • subordinating conjunctions
  • adverbs of possibility
  • two sides of the argument
  • modal verbs


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.


Remember to add to your magpie page as you watch the video.


Below you will find a link to a printable version of the slides.


After completing your task - resume the video for feedback to self mark and edit your work before uploading on seesaw.


Don't forget the exit quiz! Record your score on your piece of work before you photograph it to upload so your Class Teacher can see how you are getting on.

For today's maths lesson we will be using and understanding equivalence. Some people may think that with an equals sign you need a calculation of the left of the equals and then the answer to the right. For example 5x8=40. But in fact, this is not the only way we can present this information. The symbol is important because it means the same as. Therefore, it does not matter how you set out your calculation as long as the two sides of the symbol are the same as each other.

We could have the calculation on the right. 40=5x8. 40 is the same as 5 times 8.

We could use another calculation with an equal answer. 5x8=10x4. Both multiplications have the same answer, so they can be presented in this way because they are the same as each other.


1. Look through the learning reminders. Have a go at finding out what is missing from each side.

2. Choose your level of challenge. Be confident in what the answer to both sides needs to be first. You will have the numbers needed to find out the answer to one side of the equation. Once you know this, you will be able to find out what you need to do to the number on the opposite side in order to make them the same as each other. 

3. Have a go at the Check Your Understanding questions.

Today you will be looking at the life cycle of a flower and how flowers are able to reproduce. 


1. Read through the first Powerpoint and complete the lifecycle of a flower worksheet.

2. Read through the second Powerpoint. This talks about the different ways that the seeds of a flower are spread, which is called dispersal. Read about the six different ways that allow seeds of flowers to be spread.

3. Complete the cut and stick activity to sort each of the flowers into their seed dispersal method.
