Friday 19th June

Good morning everybody! Happy Friday!

 

We hope you have enjoyed our topic on Aliens and Space this week. We are looking forward to reading your completed fact files today!

Remember when you have completed any of your work, please email it to us. Email it to your class teacher still. Here are our email addresses below:

 

Miss Harcourt: falcons@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Mrs Walters: kestrels@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

 

Have a good day!

From Miss Harcourt and Mrs Walters 😊

 

English

 

Have a look at the Lion information fact file below.

 

Today you will complete your alien creature fact file so that it includes: a title, an introduction, your paragraph on appearance, information about its habitat/location, a paragraph on its behaviour and a conclusion. Use the structure of the lion fact file example to help you.

 

Remember to use the vocabulary helper and a thesaurus to improve your vocabulary choices.

Maths

 

This week you have been using formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, including with real life contexts.

Today you are going to use long division as a method for solving division calculations where short division is less efficient.

Have a think about this and answer the questions below.

If you need another reminder about long division look at the shared example below:
Now choose from the mild, spicy or hot challenges. (If you feel confident try more than one!)
If you are feeling really confident with long division, challenge yourself with these extra mastery challenges:

Now complete your propeller board using the numbers Side A 30-90 : 83

                                                                                            Side B 10-90 : 83

 

Also remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Topic:

 

Do Aliens exist?

Today you are going to investigate whether aliens exist!

 

First watch the clips below (skip ads):

Now decide whether you think aliens exist. Try to now argue the opposing idea e.g. if you think aliens could exist try to argue that they don’t. Now have a debate with a member of your household on whether aliens exist.

Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.  You can now also go on: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html to do your online reading and quizzes too! We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So go on, let’s get reading!
