In Maths this week, we started looking at decimals. First of all, have a look at this sheet, and make sure you have completed it. Some of you started in class.
Watch the video about looking at decimals as fractions. The worksheet which goes with it is below for you to complete, either as you watch the video, or afterwards.
Have a look at the introduction document and then try the learning task. If you apply what you have learned so far, you will be fine!
We didn't even get a chance to start our new topic! We can start it now though, and I will find a way to share our class book with you.
You guessed it, our book is about animals (no prizes for that I’m afraid!)… It is called, ‘Wild Animals of the South’ and it is a beautiful picture book with information about animals found in the Southern Hemisphere (South of the Equator). At the moment, I am waiting for permission from the publisher to put scans of the book on the website for you to look at.
Our geography topic this term is South America, so this book fits in nicely. For your English work today and tomorrow, I would like you to choose three South American animals, and find out all about them.
We will be working towards writing our own information texts about these animals, so it is really important that you find out as much as you can and keep your notes for your own writing.
With your adult’s permission, please watch part of this David Attenborough documentary about South American animals:
You might want to choose three animals featured in the programme, or three of your own, the choice is yours. Find out as much as you can about them, but you will certainly need to:
I am giving you two days’ worth of English lessons to do this research, so I expect you to find out lots of facts about your animals, and make loads of notes. You will find your writing quite tricky if you don’t!
There are lots and lots of websites with information about animals. Here are some suggestions:
