The Wednesday Word

Join Mrs Armstrong-Boyle for the Wednesday Word this morning. 

Children's Mental Health Week

Take some time out with your family today to watch the following video: praying for Mental Health Week. 


L.O. To respond to a text

As it is Mental Health Week, you can choose a way to respond to this text where Rat visits Mole's home at Christmas time.

You could

  • draw a picture or make a model of Mole's home,
  • write a script of a conversation that Mole and Rat may have had,
  • write a diary from either Mole or Rat's point of view
  • write a summary of the chapter
  • make a Christmas song that the field mice may have sung
  • video yourself reading part of the the story 


L.O. To solve perimeter word problems 

Work through the powerpoint below to remind yourself about the footsteps to solve word problems and how to use them to work out perimeter word problems. Then, there are some questions to answer. 


L.O. To know what melting points and boiling points are

Watch the Oak Academy lesson to learn about how scientists measure temperature, two major 'fixed points' of a substance (melting and boiling point) and how we can determine the state of matter of a substance at a particular temperature when given these fixed points.

If you want, you could try melting, boiling, freezing and condensing your own examples of solids, liquids and gases. Just make sure that you have someone round to help you and share what you do!
