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.
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?
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:
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
