Term 6 Week 4

Hi everyone. As we enter week 4 of term, it's wonderful to see the fantastic work that you are sharing with us on Seesaw. This week, we are continuing with our monster module in English. In maths we are working on pie charts. Keep sending us the great work on Seesaw, and enjoy the lovely sunshine! As always, we are thinking of you.

Maths - Here is all the work you need for the week:
Monday and Tuesday: Using your plan from last Friday, complete your monster report. Remember the sentence and language work that we did last week; introduce each paragraph with a great topic sentence, rather than using subheadings, and adopt the technical language of an expert to convey as much information as possible with each sentence.
Wednesday -  Here is a reading comprehension for you to complete:
Thursday's English: Plan a diary entry for someone who has an encounter with your monster! Use the story mountain format we usually use in class. You need to consider who your character is, and answer all of the who/what/where/when/how questions in your plan. Also, consider what descriptive phrases you can incorporate to paint a picture for your reader.
Friday's English: Using your plan from Thursday, write your diary entry in the role of your character. Remember the key features you need to include: date, first person, past tense and chronological order. Also, remember to paint a picture for your reader by using a variety of descriptive phrases and considering all of the senses and what they are thinking and feeling. We can't wait to see what you write - so be sure to share your work on Seesaw!
Foundation Subjects: Safety in Action
Foundation Session: Outdoor Learning Activity
Foundation Sessions - Thursday and Friday:
To consolidate your learning about pie charts, collect some real life data about you, your family and your friends. The possibilities for this are endless, but here are some ideas to get you started: what you and your extended family and friends all eat for breakfast, what months you were all born in, your favourite colours/TV shows/music genres. You could also survey some of the items in your house - the contents of your recycling bin, the types of books on your bookshelf or records/cds in your music collections. Spend some time gathering this data - aim to have at least 10 items in each data set. Put your information into a table and include a column with the calculation of angles needed for your pie chart (you could copy the table in Tuesday's maths presentation). When you have gathered and collated your data, you are ready to make your pie charts. Don't forget to use a protractor, compass and ruler.
