Monday 11th May 2020

Welcome to your home learning for Monday 11th May 2020!

 

This week, you will only find instructions for your English and maths tasks here. I am hoping that you will be able to complete these independently. Have a go and see how you get on!

English

 

This week we are looking at inverted commas (speech marks).

 

Today, we are learning about reporting clauses. 

 

A reporting clause is where you add detail about who is saying  the words and how they are saying it. It can go before or after the speech.

 

E.G. 

 

  • said Miss Heffernan
  •  
  • suggested Miss Heffernan
  •  
  • Miss Heffernan declared 
  •  
  • Miss Heffernan responded

 

If a reporting clause is before the speech, you need to place a comma before the speech. 

 

e.g. Miss Heffernan suggested, "Put the comma before the words that come out of the person's  mouth."

 

However....

 

If a reporting clause is after the speech, you either use a full stop, exclamation mark or question mark to show it is the end of a sentence. 

 

e.g. "If it is the end of the speech, use a full stop, exclamation mark or question mark," said Miss Heffernan

 

 

 

 

This week we will be working through this booklet. Today, try page 2 and 3

Maths 

 

This week we are looking at symmetry. 

 

An object is symmetrical when one half is a mirror image of the other half. 

 

This means that the size must stay the same. 

 

Have a go at making these pictures look exactly the same in their mirror reflections. 

 

You should be able to do this independently!

Use this PowerPoint to remind you what symmetry is
