Listening and Talking and Writing

We looked at the #freecuthbert story that has been circulating recently. We discussed the impact of social media and wrote persuasive letters to either M&S or Aldi depending on our point of view.

Opportunities for home learning: 

Keep an eye on current events and the way that social media can be used to influence our feelings. For example, with the upcoming election. You might see political party broadcasts on the TV or on the internet. Identify how the different parties try to persuade you to agree with their point of view. Can you use the skills from our persuasive writing this week to persuade someone to agree with your view on who should be elected? 

Maths

We began our maths lessons with core numeracy revision (multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 as well as times tables).  We talked about the importance of revisiting these key skills frequently even though our main focus is on a different area of maths.

The main area covered in maths this week was investigating how to construct triangles when you are given 3 pieces of information (SAS- Side, angle, side and ASA- Angle, side, angle).

Opportunities for home learning: 

Here are some videos we watched in class, which you may find useful to watch again. Please only watch video 81 and 82, WE DID NOT COVER SSS triangles (video 83).

If you have a protractor and ruler at home you could try some further examples.

Remember, it is also really important to keep revising times tables and other core numeracy skills. We will be doing more of this on Thursday.

Please read our mind maps to find out about our learning in other areas of the curriculum.
