LO: To demonstrate what you have learned so far
Please do the first reasoning test today.
Rules for doing the reasoning test - please read this first
- You will need a sharp pencil AND a pen.
- You have 40 minutes to do as many questions as you can using your pencil.
- After 40 minutes, change to your pen, and then continue to work through the test if you need to. (This helps me to know how many questions you can answer under timed conditions but also gives you a chance to show me what you know)
- Read the questions twice before you answer the question.
- If you get stuck, miss out the question and move on to the next one.
- You can go back and have another go at questions you missed.
- The questions CAN be read to you.
- Mathematical words can be read to you but not explained.
- Just do your best!
LO: To compare events within a text
- If you are printing the sheet, you will need two different coloured highlighters.
- If you are not printing, you will need to write your answers down.
1. Prepare for Learning
- Think back to the text and image from yesterday.
- Have you any ideas about which text they might be from?
- List your ideas and prove it using evidence from the text.
5. Comparing and contrasting
- Read the PowerPoint to find out what comparing and contrasting is.
- Look at the 'Comparing and Contrasting' vocabulary sheets to find some language that helps us compare and contrast.
- Have a go at writing some comparing and contrasting sentences, to explain what life what like before and after the war.
- You will need to mention information from BOTH before AND after to write a proper comparison or contrast and ALSO use evidence from the text like you did yesterday.
- Here is an example: Before the war the family always had plenty to eat. We know this because it says "There was always food". The text also says that the father would buy meat and catch rabbits as well as keeping their own ducks and chickens. In contrast, after the war, hungry soldiers came and "stole the cabbages and the chickens and the ducks". It also says that crops burned and were turned into battlefields, which would mean that they couldn't make bread. Although the family had grown their own vegetables before the war, the vegetables had become rotten and the family began to starve.
LO: To know how some animals and plants have adapted to their environments
- Open the PDF of the PowerPoint presentation and work through it, answering questions when asked.
- Look at the environment posters and pick an environment.
- Research to find a living thing that lives in that environment.
- Complete the worksheet showing how your chosen living thing has adapted to help it live in that environment.
