Writing Task: Explanation Text
Today we are going to write the final sections of our explanations. The next section is about Plasma. In this section, as in the others before, you need to explain what plasma is and what its role is.
Here is an example to get you started:
Plasma is the largest part of your blood. It makes up more than half (about 55%) of its overall content. Plasma is a light yellow liquid that carries: water, salts and enzymes. It is the liquid that the other blood cells float around in. its function is to take nutrients, hormones and proteins to parts of the body that require it. Fascinating!
To complete your explanation text, you need to write a closing sentence to link back to your opening. Something like:
Now you know all about the essential functions of blood and why it is vital for our survival.
RE: Reconciliation - Inter-relating - Healing
Today we start our new RE topic – Reconciliation. What do you think this means? If you are unsure, it is always best to get a definition of the word.
Reconciliation is the act of becoming friendly again (as after a disagreement).
Today we are going to be thinking about when people become sick and need care. At this current time many people are in need of care and Key Workers, especially those working in the NHS are working hard to provide care to people who are suffering during the current pandemic. This is such an important job and not everyone would be up to it.
I bet lots of you have been showing your appreciation for the hard work that our NHS workers are doing at the moment by joining in the Clap for Carers at 8pm on Thursday evenings.
Task: Write a job description for an NHS worker. What qualities do you think are needed to look after someone who is sick? What beliefs and values would be important? What could they offer, etc? You can present this work however you like – be creative.
