Thursday 16th July

Good morning everyone!

 

We hope you enjoyed having a go at Yoga yesterday. Today you are going to continue to think about how you can keep yourself healthy. 

 

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

 

Enjoy!

From Miss Harcourt and Mrs Walters 😊

English:

 

This week you have focused on what we can do to improve our health. Today, we are going to focus on something that can damage our health which is smoking.

 

We all know that smoking is harmful. Take a look at the link below which shows what the government aims are regarding smoking.

 

 https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/towards-a-smoke-free-generation-tobacco-control-plan-for-england

 

Is this enough?

 

Now have a look at the two documents attached below. They will give you some facts and information about smoking and how it effects our physical and mental health.

In your book, brainstorm some answers to the following question:

 

What could we do to help people stop smoking in our country?

 

Your activity:

 

You are going to write a letter to 'Max'. Max is a smoker and is unaware of the health risks associated with smoking.

 

You need to convince him to quit by providing him with facts about how unhealthy it

is and giving him strategies to quit.

 

Below is an example showing the opening two paragraphs to a letter:

 

Dear Max,

 

I am writing to you because it is incredibly important that you understand how smoking is harming your body. I believe I can help you quit!

 

Firstly, the tar from cigarettes can block your arteries which means it is extremely difficult

for oxygen to get to your muscles. As a result, you will feel more lethargic, demotivated and

fatigued compared to a non-smoker. It is obvious that by exercising more regularly, you will take your mind off smoking and start your path to physical recovery!

 

 

When you structure your writing, ensure you have an introduction, a main body and a conclusion.

 

You will want to include:

 

facts and information

persuasive sentence stems (document attached below)

scientific and technical vocabulary

rhetorical questions

Maths

 

This week you are going to extend your understanding of fractions and mixed numbers by adding and subtracting fractions.

 

Today you are going to compare and order mixed numbers and improper fractions by converting using a common denominator.

 

 

Now have a look at the main maths task below:

If you need another reminder of how to compare mixed numbers and improper fractions, 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 comparing mixed numbers and improper fractions, challenge yourself with these extra mastery challenges:

Now complete your propeller board using the numbers Side A 30-90 : 47

                                                                                  Side B 10-90 : 27

 

Also remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Topic:

 

This afternoon you are going to find out about food groups that make up the food pyramid.

 

To begin with, write down a list of foods that you think you should eat more of and a list of foods you think you should eat less of. Try to spot the similarities in each list.

 

Watch the video below and look at the document attached to find out more about the food pyramid.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KbA8pFW3tg

Your activity:

 

In your book, draw a food pyramid with five layers (like the one on the document below) and in each section, draw and label foods that you might find. 

Once you have finished, create a meal plan for one day which matches the food pyramid (lots of fruit and veg but not much fat). You need to include breakfast, lunch, tea, snacks and drinks.

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!

 

Spellings:

Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell all of the Year 3/4 words, then do the Year 5/6. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
