Thursday 26th March 2020
Well done for persevering this far and continuing to do such amazing work. Thank you to all the families that have sent me photos of children's work, it is very much appreciated and I am enjoying seeing what everyone has achieved.
As you have seen some pieces have been added to the celebration page and I will update this periodically.
Have fun and keep well everyone! Don't forget to email if you need anything at all.
9.00 - 9.30
Can you please do 15 minutes of TTRockstars and 15 minutes of Mathletics.
9.30 - 10.30 - Literacy
LO: To effectively use headings and subheadings
Today you’re going to be applying your knowledge and understanding of headings and subheadings.
Remember the point of a heading is to grab the reader's attention. It should be short, snappy, exciting. The articles are all trying to get the readers to read their article. It is also trying to give a little information about what the article is about and what the text will be about.
A sub heading introduces the text. This is what you look for to help you find the information you want. For example if a sub heading says all the information about dogs and it talks about boats then it is horribly wrong! It must introduce the section of text.
Complete the activity sheet about sub headings
I would like you to come up with your own small information text for your morning so far.
Think about how you would get the reader to read about your morning, and what information you would include.
WOMAN WAKES EARLY TO SMELLY SOCKS!
Every day for the past few days, an unsuspecting woman in Sevenoaks has woken up to the vile odours of a stinky washing basket with the gift of putrid socks. The partner obviously just loves to share…
Then my subheadings could be:
Chaos over breakfast
Partner whinges at the thought of going to work
My bullet points could be what I have to get done today.
Come up with your own and write a non-fiction text about the morning you have just had. Make sure that your headings and subheadings are correct.
You can even add a drawn picture with a caption about having your breakfast.
10.30 - 11.00 Break
Do something to get some energy out of the children for example Joe Wicks is releasing a work out video every Monday - Friday. Then spend the last 5 minutes getting them calm again. For example is there something they could tidy or draw or sit and read for 5 minutes. It is important they are calm again.
11.00 - 12.00 - Maths
LO: To be able to compare and order decimals and fractions
This is a very simple lesson, just a recap before we move onto something a little harder. Can you show me in your books 5 examples of decimals that include hundredths and decimals that include just tenths. Can you explain as to why they are called tenths and hundredths.
Have a go at the Chilli challenges I have set and see how you get on. Remember not only to think about from right to left and up to down but the diagonal as well.
12.00 - 1.15 - Lunch
1.15 - 2.00 - Science
LO: To be able to identify soundproofing
So far we have learned that sound is created by vibrations and the harder the vibration the louder the sound! Today we are going to design an experiment to see if we can stop sound or soundproofing.
The idea of this experiment is that you are going to need a box/Tupperware/bag and something that makes sound (You could use a toy/your parent's phone).
You will put the item that makes sound in the box and see if you can hear it. If you have a tablet there are decibel apps that you can download that will tell you exactly how much noise there is. BUT we will be running the experiment tomorrow. Today we are just going to get all the items we need and start our write up.
So if we know that sound is made by vibrations, you need to think about how to stop sound - what must we do? Stop the vibrations.
So you need to think about what could stop the vibrations.
Before we start the write up, can you get:
- a box/bag/Tupperware to put your sound making device in
- A sound making device
- 6 items to wrap/cover your box. This could include: pillows/towels/cling film/clothes/books. You are only limited by your imagination, can you get the most interesting things you can?
On to the write up.
Our heading is our experiment:
An experiment to find the best soundproofing item.
This is what you think will happen. Finish the sentence below talking about each item you have collected.
I predict that the bag will...
I predict that the ________ device will...
I predict that ________ item will...
Remember to think carefully about this section, because we will come back to it in the conclusion.
Tomorrow we run the experiment and finish off our write up.
2.00 - 2.10 - Mrs Mitchell and Miss Fermor'schallenge
- Keep practising your new skill that you want to become an expert in.
Those of you who have chosen to learn how to be better cooks or bakers BBC Good Food is a great website to use. Any photos or videos you have learning and improving on your new skills, please email them to me.
Remember the more you practise the better you will become.
2. Reflect in your journal about how you are doing with your new skills (I'll upload my reflection from my journal to show you what I expect).
(5 minutes- 10 minutes)
2.10 - 2.30 - Well-being activity
I have suggested a few well-being activities on 'expand your mind while in self-isolation' tab, or you can do something of your own choosing.
2.30 - 2.45 - Break
2.45 - 3.15 - Reading
