LO: To identify the meaning of words in context
First read the three-page story on the document below, making a prediction where asked. (Some of the formatting is a bit muddled on the 'tickets' but don't worry about it)
You will notice that some of the words in the text are written in bold and we are going to work with these words today. Sometimes words can mean different things depending on what's happening in the story or text, and we have to use the story or text to help decide what the word means. This is called, finding the meaning in 'context'. Context is a posh word for 'what it's all about'.
Have a think about what those bold words mean, using the story itself to help work out the meanings. You could write the meaning in your books or write them on the sheets in the document. If you get stuck, there is a yellow box filled with similar words that might help you.
Maths Year 5/6
LO: To calculate angles on a straight line
Today is all about using some special knowledge to do with angles. You won't need a protractor for this work today, you will just use some angle facts and some calculation skills.
Think about whether you know the answers to these questions...
1) How many degrees in a right angle?
2) How many degrees in two right angles?
3) How many degrees in a half turn?
4) How many degrees in a straight line?
5) How many degrees in 4 right angles?
6) How many degrees in a full turn?
If we remember that a half turn or straight line has 180 degrees, then we can use that to work out problems. For example, if we know that part of our straight line angle is 100 degrees, then the missing angle must be 80 degrees, because 100+80 is 180.
Watch the video and then have a go at the questions on the sheet. The questions get trickier as you work through them and one is even a question where you have to think about a full turn of 360 degrees!
Year 6 Maths
LO: To translate an object
You are familiar with the word 'translate' when talking about languages, however it is also a mathematical word. In maths, the word 'translate' means to 'move' an object without changing the size, shape or which way up it is. Watch this video which explains 'translation'.
