Tuesday 28th April
Fact of the day:
A dog's nose is like a human fingerprint, each is unique to its owner. That means no two dog noses are the same!
Start your day off with some exercise. Choose either to follow the Joe Wicks live workout or a yoga routine from the Cosmic Kids Yoga link!
Reading for at least 20 minutes today, independently or to an adult. Don't forget, you can still quiz on books at home!
We are going to continue securing our fractions knowledge today. I would like you to use all the practice from the work you have done at home, you might want to flick back through your book, and then answer the following questions. I would like to see how much you can do without me giving you any input today.
You might want to use the fraction wall you made last week to help you if you are finding the questions tricky. Watch my video which shows this method, but remember, you might not need help with it!! Try first.
Once you have a completed this, have a go at the following questions on this worksheet. See how many you can complete, try your best.
1a, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7b
Answers are at the bottom of the document.
Today we are going to look at conjunctions.
We know that conjunctions are words we use to link our ideas or to join two small sentences together.
There are 2 different types of conjunctions.
A while ago, we learnt about coordinating conjunctions. You might remember seeing this, you made your own versions to stick in the back of your English books.
Today, we are going to explore the other type of conjunctions, we call these subordinating conjunctions.
Have a look at what these words are below.
Before we learn about what their purpose is and how we use them, in your purple books I would like you to create a small picture to help you remember these.
You might copy the one you see above or you might change this to design your own one. I don't mind how you do this as long as those words are in your purple books to help you later.
What are Subordinating Conjunctions?
Subordinating conjunctions are used to join subordinating clauses to the main clause.
(We looked at subordinating clauses a while ago - these are clauses which do not make sense on their own)
Have a look at the web page below and watch the video:
I would like you to work through the PowerPoint below. It explains more about subordinating conjunctions and also gives you some activities to do. I would like you to complete these sentence activities in your purple books please.
You are now going to work through the worksheet below.
It has given you the start of a sentence. You need to put in a subordinating conjunction and a subordinate clause.
Try to use a variety of subordinating conjunctions, not the same one multiple times! Use the picture you did at the start to remind you of the different subordinating conjunctions you could use.
These can be written in your purple books.
Today we are going to be looking at maps. To help us read maps, they have something called coordinates on them.
Carefully watch this BBC clip and read the information. It will help to explain what a coordinate is.
I am going to use the letters and the numbers to locate the pirate ship.
When I am reading grid references, I always follow the lines.
I start by going along the bottom and read the letters. I am going all the way along to E, because that is where I see the pirate ship.
I then need to see how far up it is. I follow it up and stop at 1 because again, that is where the pirate ship is.
So, I can see that my grid reference is E 1.
However, this is not how we write grid references.
Grid references are always in brackets. That's just the way it is!
This means that the pirate ship is located in (E,1). Notice that there is a comma in between the letter and the number.
Where is the mermaid located? Can you write the grid reference down? Remember - across then up!
Have a look at the document for the answer! Did you get it right?
You are now going to work through a sheet about grid references.
In the document below there are 3 levels of difficulty for you to choose from, depending on how you are feeling!
1 star - Not too confident
2 Stars - I'm feeling okay
3 stars - I'm very confident with this
You can either print this out or just write the answers in your purple books. The answers are in this document too.
Grid references can come as (letter, number) as we have just learnt.
They can also come like this (number, number). So instead of having letters along the bottom, there are numbers along the bottom as well as up the side. We read them exactly the same.
Have a look at the picture below:
I am looking for the camel. I go along the bottom to number 11. I go up to number 6.
So the camel's grid reference is (11, 6).
Have a go at this worksheet. It is the same idea as the first one you did, but you are now reading numbers along both.
For this one, there are 3 levels again. Choose which one you want to do. The answers are at the bottom of the document.
