LO: To choose the best words


Activity 8

If you haven't completed the reading activity from last week, go back and read the story about Sarah and her Golden Wishes Ticket.


Today, we will look more closely at the opening of the story.  Re-read the first paragraph again, on the document below, noticing that some of the words have been highlighted.  Can you work out what all of those words have in common? 


They are all about Jack - they tell us what Jack is like - and the author chose them especially, so that we could find out about this character.  Look at the next paragraph on the document to find out what the highlighted words tell us about Jack.


Now, your job is to look at the paragraph again (it's been repeated at the bottom of the page) and you need to highlight the words that tell us about what Sarah is like and explain in sentences, why you have chosen them and what they tell us about the character.



To prepare us for tomorrow's activity, read the extract again and think about the 'mood' of the writing.  Highlight any words that tell us about the atmosphere and mood.  Write down the differences between how the outside and inside are described.

Maths - Year 5  (and optional extra for year 6)

LO: Identify the properties (features) of regular and irregular polygons

Although this is a Year 5 outcome, Year 6 could also do the Year 5 work this week, as it's been a while since they covered shape work


You will need a ruler for measuring the sides of the shapes and a protractor for measuring the angles.  If you need a protractor, please contact the school office and they will let you borrow one.


There is a game to start you off, to remind yourselves about the names of 2D shapes - complete all of the game levels as they get harder.


Watch the video and have a go at the questions on the sheet, before marking your work.  I have also linked a sorting game to finish.

Watch the video and have a go at the questions.

There is a game link to finish.
