Learning Together at Home 26.3.20

Happy Thursday everyone!

Just a reminder that BLOG POSTS go live on the school website at noon (12.00 lunchtime) each day and that these tasks are to be spread over that afternoon and if necessary the next morning. Pace yourself with the tasks and remember there is also Newsround to watch if you like. Joe Wicks has a great workout everyday at 9am which is saved on his YouTube page to do whenever you like  . . .

 

Riddle – What is seen in the middle of March and April that can’t be seen at the beginning or end of either month? Answer on the blog tomorrow!

Please choose which star level you think would best suit your reading (understanding) ability.

*=green option, **=amber option, ***=red option.

Read the text and decide how you can best learn this information. Is it through creating a poster, creating a set of 10 questions based on the information, constructing a mind map with all the information you can remember . . . ? Share ideas of HOW you are going to remember the key facts about John Logie Baird on Teams chat. I look forward to hearing all your ideas!
