This week we began to look at solving word problems. For most of you we only looked at one-step subtraction word problems. Sometimes, however, we also need to add and subtract to solve a problem. These problems are commonly referred to multi-step problems, as you will often need to use a mix of mathematical operations and you will need to solve several steps before you are able to complete the problem.
For todays lesson I have put together a PowerPoint and video to support your understanding. There are questions and answers attached at the bottom of this page.
For those of you who want a challenge there are also some deepening questions. These questions require full answers; including multiple examples and written explanations.
LO: To consider an argument and present it to an audience.
SC1. I can discuss the features of persuasive writing.
SC2. I can write a persuasive speech from a chosen perspective.
SC3. I can share my speech with an adult and explain my ideas.
In guided reading today, the chapter was called “The War”. We saw Julian and Jack turn against each other and the school children have started to take different sides.
Todays’ task is to take on the role of either Jack or Julian. You will need to imagine that you are delivering a speech to your classmates and that you need to persuade everyone in the school that you are right and that they should be friends with you. You will need to use convincing argument to get support, and all of the arguments will need justifying.
First, you must choose a side. Once you have chosen it you must then consider what your persuasive arguments could be. To help you do this you must consider what you already know about the two boys and their personalities.
To help you with planning your writing I have created two guides (one for Jack and another for Julian). Each of these guides gives examples of what you could use in your writing to either support your arguments. There are also some other resources which will help you with planning and vocabulary.
Remember to use all the key features of a persuasive argument.
