LO: To choose appropriate synonyms and antonyms

This is a follow up to last Tuesday's lesson.  The PowerPoint will take you through the activities, giving you the information you need, asking you  questions and telling you which activities to do.  These activities are saved below as well.  Some of the activities have different sheets so you can choose your difficulty.  Most things don't need printing as you can write in your books and you can always make your own set of the word cards! (Where there is a 'will' there is a 'way'!


LO: To find the area of shapes

Below you will find a selection of video clips and worksheets (plus answers!) to help you learn how to find the area of 2D shapes.  There are some for Y5 and some for Y6, but choose the activity you feel is right for you.  They are best done in the order posted.

LO: To plan and film a short nature documentary in the style of Sir David Attenborough

As part of your nature diary work (set last week - check Tuesday 24th March if you haven't done it yet - also see a copy of the task sheet, below) I'd like to suggest making a short documentary about a plant or animal in your garden or that you can see from your window.

  1. Click on the video from Newsround, explaining who Sir David Attenborough is.
  2. Watch the video clip example of a David Attenborough documentary.
  3. Choose a plant or animal and find out about it so you can give facts in your documentary.
  4. You can be the camera operator and narrate like David Attenborough while you video, or ask someone else to video you!  You can try and copy his style of narration for added fun!
