Thursday 25th June 2020

Wake up! It's time to do our learning activities! Today-a review of Giraffe's can't dance, comparing amounts of money and hot and cold biomes around the world!

First, a prayer for the day to start, and then a shake up for a superhero-have you got what it takes to collect all the items on the run? Let's go!

Prayer for the Day-light a candle, reflect on the words and pray with your heart, then blow out the candle to start the day

READ THROUGH THE STORY ONE LAST TIME BEFORE YOU WRITE YOUR REVIEW!

ENGLISH 

What do we like about the story Giraffes Can’t Dance? Can we write a book review?

Giraffes can’t dance. When we review a book, we usually say what is good about the story, funny, easy or well expressed. We look at how the words are used: rhyme, alliteration, description and decide how these help to engage the reader and what effect they have. We can also talk about the weaker elements of the writing-ideas, words or things that didn’t make sense to us or we found a bit uninteresting. If we have a question for the author, we might ask it in our review. Finally, we would either recommend the book to readers or explain why it isn’t an interesting book to read. Remember: explain your reasons for what you say and always think about who and what age group would enjoy the book the most!

MATH WARM UP

Get on Times Tables Rock stars to practice your 2s, 3s, 4s, and 5s!

As a challenge: 6's, 7's and 8's

Remember: practice makes perfect so even if you know these, keep practising so you don't forget! You could also try Mathletics and choose an area of maths there: this week we're looking at money so see if there's some extra Mathletics practice on money. The four questions today can be copied onto paper by printing or by you copying them. There's also some further arithmetic practice on our weekly SATs paper below but you only need to do 2 or 3 questions a day from this. Let's get our maths head on...

MATH: COMPARE AMOUNTS

EXTRA ARITHMETIC PRACTICE: CLICK THE DOCUMENT AND DO ONE OR TWO QUESTIONS ONLY. COPY AND COMPLETE ON PAPER OR PRINT OUT.

GEOGRAPHY BIOMES: DESERT, MOUNTAIN, RAINFOREST, TUNDRA Look at the pictures and describe what these places are like. Discuss why you would like to visit these places or not. What would you need to take with you and why?

GEOGRAPHY: HOT AND COLD BIOMES! Look at these animals then match them to the different biomes! Can you give a reason why they live there? Where on a world map would you put them? Can you think of any other animals that live in very cold or very hot places? Draw one!

winkThat's all for Thursday Time to rest after a successful Learning day! Don't forget to e-mail your work to have it put up on the website under the home learning spiral on the main page! See you again for another day of activities tomorrow!laugh
