Monday Home Learning 30.3.20
We hope you have all had a good and safe weekend. The home learning that we have seen so far has been wonderful and it is great to see so many of you taking part in the challenges we have set. Remember, if you would like to show us the work you have completed or just tell us how you are doing, then please email either Mrs Cousins (Claire.firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mr Mason (email@example.com). We would both love to hear from you!
Here is your home learning for today:
Reading – Find the book ‘Fables from Africa’ on The Oxford Owl website and read the story ‘The Upside Down Lion’. Clarify any words that you do not know the meaning of, for example: scoundrel, peculiar… Summarise the story that you have just read. Remember to only summarise the key points of the story and the moral at the end.
Writing – Write from the point of view of the Warthog, persuading people that the Lion should be left hanging upside down from the tree. You will need to write in the first person (as the Warthog) and include fronted adverbials and sentence openers that help express your point of view (find the word mat attached below to help). You could start you writing:
I feel that the treacherous, scheming lion should be left hanging upside down from the tree. Firstly, he is a danger to all wildlife in the jungle. For example, …
Challenge – Write a response from the Grass Mouse, persuading people to let the Lion out. Continue to use your sentence openers and fronted adverbials.
This week we will be learning about the 12 hour digital clock. Go through the powerpoint slides below and then complete one or two of the tasks that you think suits your ability. As this is a new topic that we are learning about, it might be best to start at a lower level and work your way up.
We will be continuing to learn about friction this week. Your task is to open and go through the powerpoint attached and either make a video, draw a diagram or write a description about the effects of friction. We would like you demonstrate its effects, which materials create the most friction and which create the least. Email your videos, diagrams or descriptions to either Mr Mason or Mrs Cousins. If you feel like a challenge, you could complete all three ways of recording the effects of friction.
