Good morning Woodpeckers,

I hope you are enjoying the beautifully sunny weather. 

Well done for all the work you have sent me this week. I really liked the algebra questions you wrote yesterday. 

Today you are going to create your own algebra booklet and write an alternative ending to the Juniper Tree. Please watch the tutorials and read the checklist to help you.

Please see the timetable below for today.

Have a lovely day,

Miss Stuart

Success criteria:

  1. I can explain what algebra is
  2. I can give modelled examples
  3. I can explain the steps needed to others

 

Tasks:

Today I’d like you to produce an algebra guide for Year 5 to use-start from the fact most Year 5 children will have very little knowledge about algebra.

  1. Start with an introduction-what is algebra? Give some examples of what it is? Where is it used in everyday life?
  2. Explain ‘like terms’ and how to collect them-give examples, you could also address misconceptions like 1b
  3. Explain how to solve algebraic equations and give an example
  4. Explain what an algebraic expression is and how to write one

 

Please look back at the previous brilliant work you have done on all of this to help you. You can also look back at the previous tutorials, video clips and PowerPoint if you need to/wish.

Don’t worry if you don’t manage to cover all of this in the hour-just do what you can. Keep your presentation high-aim to be the best you can be. (Article 6) 

After the hour, please write your own evaluative comment linked to the success criteria above-like you do in class.

L.O: I can integrate dialogue to advance the action (show: applying)

     Success criteria:

  1. I can consider what the characters would say and how they would say it
  2. I can use inverted commas around all speech
  3. I can use deliberate vocabulary choices to advance the action

 

Read the rest of the text The Juniper Tree by The Brothers Grimm pages (on the webpage) or listen to the same part of the story read by Miss Stuart if you prefer.

Here is part 3 of The Juniper Tree by The Brothers Grimm read aloud. 

 

 

Questions:

  1. Why did the step-mother not want her husband to leave the house?
  2. Can you explain why Marlene and her father got gifts from the bird and the step-mother didn’t?
  3. Did the step-mother deserve to die? Explain your reasoning giving evidence from the text to support your arguments.

 

Task: To write an alternative (different) ending to the story The Juniper Tree

Please look at the checklist and tutorials before you start writing to help you.

 

 

Plan you alternative ending first before you start writing so you know how your story will end.

 

 

Feel free to type your story ending if you prefer.  

Aim for a page of quality writing.

 

At the end of your writing please write an evaluative comment linked to the success criteria-like you do in class.
