Writing

We have had two weeks using adverts to learn about techniques and the language of persuasion. Before we use these skills to write letters I would like you to try another one. I want you to create an advert which will use as many of the features of persuasive language as possible. To make it more difficult I would like you to try and combine two features to make a stronger statement.

Your first challenge is to see how many of the 11 features you can remember. Once you have had a go, open the word document below and see how many you got correct.

Word of the Day – “astonished”

I will be introducing a word of the day, every day. Copy each word into the back page of your jotter, which will become a word bank.  Find the definition and record this too.

Additional task:  Write a paragraph using the sentence starter below

Mrs Wordsmith stood in astonished silence as the UFO opened its hatch.

Drama

Here are some Drama games to play if you have time

Tongue Twisters 

Start by scrunching up your face and make it as small as possible for a couple of seconds. Then stretch your expressions to make them as wide as they can go. Wiggle your nose, then pretend to chew on an imaginary piece of bubblegum, blow a huge bubble and then pop it. Now try the following tongue twisters…

*        I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

*        Red lorry, yellow lorry, red lorry, yellow lorry

*        A proper copper coffee pot

*        She sells seashells on the seashore

*        A big black bug bit a big black bear

*        If a dog chews shoes, whose shoes does he choose?

*        Six slimy snails slid slowly seaward

*        If a black bug bleeds black blood, what colour blood does a blue bug bleed?

Ideally, start by saying the tongue twisters slowly together. Once confident, you can ask each child to say it on their own. You could also try using a stage voice or silly voice or you could take this up a level by assigning an emotion to each tongue twister; for example, you could try angry ones, happy ones, sad ones, and so on. Or even better, as a challenge, you can try to gradually increase the emotion per turn (this works well even if it’s just two players).

Charades 

Charades or other miming games where someone has to act out a scene, a book, film or TV show are a good way of focusing on non-verbal communication and concentration skills.

 

Hope you have a good day and remember to check back tomorrow

Mental maths

To practice the work on fractions we did last week. I have set two SUMDOG challenges, one which focuses on equivalent fractions and the other is on simplifying. I have set a end date of Sunday for these challenges so please have a go at them both over the next few days.

https://www.sumdog.com

Number

We are continuing on with simplifying fractions today.

Learning Intention

We are learning to simplify a fraction

Success criteria

I can use my skills of division to simplify the fraction.

I can divide the numerator and the denominator by the same value

I can simplify the fraction as many times as possible.

Click on the link below for a BBC bitesize guide to help even more with simplifying, watch the video and try the quiz.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zhdwxnb/articles/zcdgxfr

Spectacular

Try the two worksheets below, the answers are on page 2 so make sure you dont look at that  by mistake. Once you have finished then if you please self mark your work.

Simplify Mixed 1

Simplify Mixed 2

Fantastic    (We are going to simplify a fraction as many times as possible, this is Tricky)

For example –  Simplify fraction  6/18     = you can divide both the numerator and denominator by 6, 3 or 2. You should use the highest number to divide with as it saves you time. See below

6/3 = 2 and 18/3=6  = 2/6   – Next step – 2/2 = 1 and 6/2 = 3 = So the fraction simplified is 1/3

6/6 = 1 and 18/6 = 3         Therefore 6/18 can be simplified to 1/3     ( QUICKER )

Grammar

To practice the learning we have been developing in speech marks, I have created a SUMDOG challenge. Good luck

Spectacular (We are going to simplify a fraction as many times as possible)

For example –  Simplify fraction  6/18     = you can divide them both by 6, 3 or 2. You should use the highest number to divide with as it saves you time. See below

6/3 = 2 and 18/3=6  = 2/6   – Next step – 2/2 = 1 and 6/2 = 3 = So the fraction simplified is 1/3

6/6 = 1 and 18/6 = 3         Therefore 6/18 can be simplified to 1/3     ( QUICKER )

As today would have been Sports Day for all the classes across the school, we have decided that learning today will focus on being active, trying something new and developing skills. There will not be the usual Literacy and Maths tasks posted today.  Instead, Mrs Conlin has prepared these circus themed activities. I hope you enjoy them! I will be on teams to talk to you throughout the day.

Circus Skills Day

We hope that you are all enjoying the Health Week activities that were shared with you on Monday. As today would have been Sports Day for all the classes across the school, we have decided that learning today will focus on being active, trying something new and developing skills. Choose two or three ideas to try. You may get time outside to practise, you may have to practise indoors, you may only have a small amount of time, you may have all afternoon..don’t worry, just go with what works for you and your family.

Here are some ideas:

 

Juggling – against a wall or in the air             Diablo spinning           Skipping – try doing different tricks with one short rope or as a family group using one long rope          Acrobatics          Balancing            Baton twirling              Hoola Hooping- try using two hoops at a time    Yo-Yo tricks        Mime

Hand Walking – how far can you go?             Puppetry             Elastics – use elastic bands                  Magic tricks – loads of ideas online        Trampolining Ventriloquism    Stilt walking       Being the Ringmaster           Clown makeup              Strength testing            Hat Manipulation – look it up!

 

You will have lots of your own ideas. Be creative – if you don’t have juggling balls, what could you use instead? Just check with an adult first!

Put on a show for your family. Plan a circus event with your brothers and sisters with your parents as the audience. Maybe an adult in your home could showcase their special talent. Make invitations.

We look forward to seeing and hearing all about your new circus skills so let us know how you got on. If you have time send us a photo or write about it.

Whatever you choose to do, have fun and enjoy a different kind of Sports Day!
