Thursday 16th April
Here we are again - another Pobble to keep your creative juices flowing. Today's image is a bit of an exciting one - It's called 'High-Flying'. Can you write about Alice's adventure?
She pulled down on the chain with her left hand, steering herself towards her target. It was supposed to be the most exciting birthday present ever; a hot air balloon ride. However, Alice had been hanging on for dear life for over 100KM (since the basket of the hot air balloon had fallen off). She was now getting used to steering the huge balloon by manoeuvring her body, leaning to the left or to the right.
Terrified yet excited at the same time, Alice could just about make out her house and garden far below. It was the one surrounded by trees straight ahead, wasn’t it?
She took a deep breath and focused…
Can you continue the story about Alice and the hot air balloon? Will she reach the ground safely? Will she land in the right garden?
Can you write a sentence that uses an apostrophe for omission?
cannot = can’t
have = I’ve
he will= he’ll
she is= she’s
we have= we’ve
will not = won’t
Can you write a sentence that uses an apostrophe for possession?
E..g. Alice’s heart Alice’s hair Alice’s face Alice’s arms
Is it possible for us to touch clouds?
What are clouds made of?
Can we touch what they are made of?
What is the sky?
Where does the sky begin?
Why is the sky blue?
These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?
Alice held on to the chains. She looked down. The trees below were small. She was scared.
Today and tomorrow you are going to do some research on the solar system. This learning task builds on what we covered in class before we closed. Use the bitesize website to research the solar system https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zdrrd2p and make notes as you watch the video clips (there are 10 learner guides and 33 class clips that you can have a look at if you wish). Today you should aim to gather some interesting facts so that tomorrow you can design a fact sheet suitable for a Year 4 child. Make sure you organise your ideas cohesively and try not to jump around with your facts too much - you don't want a bunch of random unlinking facts on a fact sheet - it does need some organisation! Enjoy your fact-finding mission and get gathering.
Try to read for a little longer today! Try and finish your book or at least tackle a few extra chapters.
If you haven't done a book review for a while, then maybe you could tackle one today. We'd love to see your reviews if you have any, so take a pic and email them to us!
Maths today follows a similar path to earlier in the week. I hope you're all finding these maths tasks reasonably challenging and are working through them with your usual resilience! Keep up the great work everyone.
