Maths

LO: TBAT use short division with remainders.

 

Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video slides, and worksheets. (I’ve also put the question sheet and answer sheet below.)

 

You can also visit the BBC Bitesize website for an extra video on today’s maths lesson (Wednesday 6th May).

 

The links are below:

Just a reminder – the idea is that the BBC provides further support to help you learn, you will still need to complete the White Rose question sheet, and as always, you can check your answers.

Literacy

LO: TBAT use ellipsis.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z73sf4j

 

Remind yourself of what an ellipsis is and the ways it can be used by watching the videos, there are two of them. Read the information on the page, too.

 

Then, practise using ellipsis with Activity 1 – there’s a peculiar-looking pink brain in it!

 

Once you have done this, move on to Activity 2. You need to watch the video clip of The Iron Man.

 

In your neatest handwriting and in your exercise book, write a paragraph, that includes an ellipsis, to describe the Iron Man's appearance at the top of the cliff.

 

Can you use an ellipsis in different ways to:

  • show the trailing off of a thought
  • add suspense
  • show where part of the sentence was removed

 

Example

The Iron Man stood towering at the top of the cliff. Where had he come from? Nobody knows... Mysterious. The Iron Man's eyes showed he was deep in thought; he knew what he was here to do but…Those sleeping below did not know the doom looking down upon them...

Top tips!

Furthermore, an ellipsis can sometimes be used to:

  • show a jump forward in time within your story
  • introduce a character flashback
  • leave a cliffhanger
  •

Science – Forces

Wednesday 5th May

LO: TBAT explore the effect that gravity has on objects and how the first theory of gravity was developed.

 

We’re continuing with our science topic today – FORCES.

 

Can you remember what you learned about forces acting on objects, yesterday? What vocabulary did you learn/use?

 

Watch the Powerpoints for Lesson two, there are two parts - Part 1 and Part 2. Try to think carefully about the questions it asks as you work your way through it.

 

Then, open the documents  - 'Newton Fact Sheet' and 'Newton Activity Sheet'. This is a comprehension to help you learn about the work of Sir Isaac Newton.  Remember, read the questions, then read the text – you practised this in Literacy the other week.  You can write in your exercise book.

There are three challenges for the question sheets – you choose which challenge you are going to attempt! The answers are there, too.
