Good morning Woodpeckers!
Welcome to EXTREME EARTH WEEK! We will be looking at weather, tsunamis, earthquakes, volano eruptions, thunder and lightning, hottest and coldest places, highest and lowest places... let's find out more about our EXTREME Earth!
Also, send me an email letting me know what you have been up to. I miss you all!
Hope you enjoy!
To start off this week, you need to listen to the news. In particular, you are waiting for the ‘Weather report’. As you are watching this, can you write down a list of key words and phrases that you hear and you are listening. Then, try and re-enact your own weather report in the same style in the mirror, or to your family.
Here is an example of a weather report:
Some examples of language used…
This morning will be dry with sunny spells and patchy cloud. This afternoon will have further sunshine but with the chance of a few isolated showers forming. Risk of low cloud on some southern coasts.
Tonight will be mostly dry but with patches of fog and low cloud forming. Just a light wind of variable direction.
This week we are continuing to look at place value. Today you will look at ordering and comparing numbers. Watch the video below (start at 3:30) and then work your way through the mild, spicy and hot activities attached below.
In the top corner of your rapid recall whiteboard, you will have a space to write your number.
Range 10-20: 12
Range 30-60: 47
Range 350-450: 367
Range 30-99: 57
Look at this website showing a 3D globe:
What can you find out? It shows the highest and lowest and most extreme places on Earth. Can you see where the UK is?
