9:30-10:15 Guided Reading

Know (understanding)

LO: To understand how a writer uses inference in a text.

SC1. I can explain what inference is.

SC2. I can give examples of inference from the text.

SC3. I can explain why an author wants us to use the skill of inference.

Each day, as well as including the text for you to read, I am also including the audio recording of the chapter. You should only use this is you feel you need support to develop your understanding of the text and/or to support you with your reading.

 

 

Group One – Ch 19

Use a dictionary to find the following words:

Convalescence

Ominous

Casualties

Prolonged

Brooding

Diminish

Unending

In this chapter, we learn that the war is now over and that the horses are to be sold and left in France. Answer the following questions in your books, using the text to support your answers:

1) Why do you think Joey was the “pride of Major Martin and his veterinary unit”?

2) When the war did end, there was “little joy, little celebration of victory”. Why do you think this was? What can you infer about how the men all felt about the war?

3) All of the soldiers are very concerned that the horses, who are sick and wounded, are to be sold off. The sergeant says “But you know what that means, sir? You know what will happen?” What do you think the sergeant is worried about? What could happen to these horses?

4) Major Martin does not reply to Alberts question about what will happen to Joey. Why do you think this is? Why does this tell you about what the Major is feeling?

 

 

Group Two – Page 164-166

Use a dictionary to find the following words

Muttering

Protest

Auctioned

10:15-11:00 Maths

Show (applying)
LO: To use the steps required when using the compact method (no regrouping)
SC1: I can present my work neatly
SC2: I can include all the steps required
SC3: I can solve multiplication problems (3-digit x 2-digit)

Today we are multiplying using the compact method again but we are multiplying by a 2-digit number so we have an extra step to follow. You are using all the skills that we have used previously, except there is no regrouping today.

Watch the tutorial below and work through the method before moving onto the PowerPoint to complete the questions, including the extensions. You can then find the answers in a separate PowerPoint so you can mark your own work.

It is important to follow the steps and remind yourself of the success criteria when working through the questions.

 

 

11:00-11:15 Break

 

11:15-12:30 English

Show (applying)
LO: To be able to apply my knowledge when writing a letter.
SC1. I can use my plan to help structure my letter.
SC2. I can create a list of personal success criteria.
SC3. I can write a letter using the key features.
SC4 I can check my work and ensure that I have challenged myself.

Today, you will be using the plan you created on Friday to help you write your final outcome. On Monday and Tuesday you wrote and then edited and revised Section one. Today, I want you to focus on Section two:

Section two
Description of the events surrounding the discovery of the horse in no-man’s-land and what happens to the horse. You will need to describe the horse, its condition and the danger it is in. You will also need a final paragraph, where you sign off your letter.

To help you with your writing today I have created a PowerPoint and a video.

 

 

12:30-1:30 Lunch

 

1:30-2:45 History

Show (applying)
L.O. To describe the life of a soldier in the trenches of WW1
SC1: I can research what life was like
SC2: I can describe the aspects of trench life
SC3: I can explain what a soldier may have experienced

You are going to be using the information you have gathered to imagine what life might have been like for a soldier living in the terrible conditions of the trenches in WW1. 
While watching the video you should make notes of the information you want to include. During your Guided Reading and English lessons you have been widening your vocabulary - it would be great to see that in use in today's History work to describe the setting in detail.

Task 1: Watch the video - make notes.
Task 2: Draw a scene of a soldier sitting in the trench and label it using descriptive language

I will include an example below to give you an understanding of how I expect your work to look.

 

 

You may also want to use the video from yesterday's webpage to support you further.
