Start the day with Mrs Smith's 'live' Zoom Wednesday Word. The details are on the blog.
LO: To respond to a poem and use it to improve our own writing
1) List to this audio track of the poem 'The Cave of Curiosity' by Pie Corbett.
Activity 9: Extending our ideas to write our own.
Now, we will try and improve the poems we wrote yesterday, by extending them. Here are is one way to do this:
a) Adding in more detail.
Here we want to describe more about either the place or the abstract noun and we will do this using a well-chosen adjective.
The city of silence... The forgotten city of silence
The city of silence... The city of frozen silence
The city of silence... The forgotten city of frozen silence
Now, add some well-chosen adjectives to the lines you wrote yesterday and make sure the adjectives you choose actually add something to the writing. TIP: Too many adjectives are less effective than one well-chosen adjective.
Maths Year 5/6
LO: To draw line graphs
As a printer is needed for the questions today, I have also set some similar work on My Maths which you could do instead. If you are able to print, use the video to help you answer the questions and then mark your work.
LO: To convert metric measures
Today we are making sure we understand how to convert metric measures.
Have a look at these conversions below, to remind yourselves about what I'm talking about.
10 mm (millimetres) in 1 cm (centimetres)
100 cm in 1 m (metres)
1000 m in 1 km (kilometre)
1000 g (grams) in 1 kg (kilogram)
1000 ml (millilitres) in 1 l (litre)
Watch the video, then have a go at answering the questions on the sheet, marking your work after.
Internet Safety - Lesson 3
Firstly, here are the answers to some of yesterday's questions:
2) Who wrote a mean comment about Alfie? (The Popcorn Wizards)
3) Who ‘liked’ the comment? (Sam)
4) Why wasn’t this a kind thing to do? (It might upset Alfie; Sam is meant to be Alfie's friend)
Activity 2: What's okay to share?
It is important to think about how someone else might feel if you share a photo or video of them. Sometimes people share photos or videos that might be unkind, or upset or embarrass other people.
Local community group 'Scoop and Scales' have launched an art competition (see poster above) to help raise awareness of the importance of reducing waste. The organisation based in Macclesfield, is a place that local people can buy ethically sourced, fairly priced products, with members weighing out purchases into their own containers and collecting orders on a monthly basis.
If you are interested in entering the competition, read the instructions on the poster above and to find our more about 'Scoop and Scales', click on the website link.
