I know we don't usually do music on Thursday, but there is a live Young Voices at home session today. The link to the Facebook live page is below. You wil need to make sure that you have permission to go onto Facebook to be able to access the link. It will be on YouTube later, so I will put it on for Friday if it has been uploaded by then. 

If you are there, give me a shout-out in the comments!


L.O. To present work neatly

Today, you can think about the presentation of your work. You can re-write (and improve and edit if you need to) your diary entry from yesterday. Think about the size of your letters, the position on the lines and how the letters join to each other. If you want, you can use the lined paper below or you can use paper you have at home and illustrate your work too!.


L.O. To divide by one digit using a formal written method

If you need to, you can watch the video below with a bit more input into dividing using the 'bus stop' method.

One more day to practise the written method, then next week, we will be using division to solve problems. Choose either 2 digits or 3 digits to divide from the sheets below. Answer the questions on paper, then you can write your answers on the padlet. Click on the link below to access the padlet. I will be online throughout the morning to your approve posts and give feedback.

L.O. To know what 3D modelling is.

Follow the link to watch the Oak Academy lesson on 3D modelling. You will need a class code and username (nickname) to access the programme that is used (Tinkercad). I have set up a class for us, so look on the blog for the details. 


L.O. To know the different stages of a river

Watch the videos below to find out about the 3 main stages of a river's journey. These are called the Upper Course, the Middle Course and the Lower Course. See if you can listen out for Waterfall, meander and oxbow lake. What do each of these mean?

Your task is to create a diagram or a model to show one (or all!) of these! It would be great if you could explain how these river features form as well.
