Maths

Today, you will be demonstrating what you understand about area, by following instructions to create your own zoo. You just need a piece of paper and a ruler. Try to fit the different animal enclosures onto an A4 piece of paper. You can label each enclosure with the animal and write down the measurment of their living area. If you would like, you could decorate after!

You may need the grid paper below. You can imagine each square is 1cm. If not, you could measure the shapes, or even draw out your own grid paper.

There is a quiz on Google classroom, if you would like to demonstrate your multiplication and division knowledge.

Spellings:

English

Who is David Attenborough? What is he famous for?

Watch this David Attenborough video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1XvG440xjM

Today we will be creating a paragraph where we use David Attenborough’s wise words to back up our ideas. To do this we must use speech marks to show that the man himself said exactly these words.

What rules do you remember about speech?

• Then we must use a Capital before writing the exact words that David said
• We must use a , ! ? before closing speech
• Don’t use a capital for ‘said’

So we could say:

“We must immediately halt deforestation,” declared David Attenborough.

If we want to up-level this sentence, we could add an embedded clause with extra information. For example:

David Attenborough, an English Naturalist, declared, “We must immediately halt deforestation!”

Finally, we must conclude our work. You need a separate paragraph for this.

How will we end dramatically?

What could the readers do to help?

What will happen if no one does anything?
