Thursday 18th June

Good morning everyone! We hope you are enjoying our topic on Aliens and Space this week.

 

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

Enjoy!

English

 

Today you are going to complete your work on the anatomy of the insect. Watch the clip from yesterday again listening carefully to the description of the creatures.

https://vimeo.com/193963379

Read through the beetle description below and select a suitable word to fill the gaps.

Check your work using the answers at the bottom of the page.

Can you identify any cohesive devices which are used in the description?

Watch the video clip below to remind you about cohesive devices.

Think about what we know about cohesive devices e.g. repetitions, adverbials, conjunctions, substitution of nouns, use of pronouns etc. Make a list and highlight any examples that you can see in the description. How do they help the reader?

 

 

Today you to are going to write the next paragraph which describes your alien creature's appearance for your factfile. It comes after the introduction paragraph which you wrote yesterday.

You will be using your ideas and designs from yesterday to help you to create your paragraph. Make sure that you have mentioned at least 6 features of the hexapod.

 

Look at the example below. It uses the idea of talking about hexapods in general then narrows down to discuss the selected creature. How else might we start our writing? Try to use some cohesive devices in your paragraph.

 

 

Maths

 

This week you are going to use formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, including with real life contexts.

Today you are going to use 1 digit factors of 2 digit numbers to make dividing 4 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers easier.

Have a think about this and answer the questions below.

If you need another reminder about using factors to help you divide 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 dividing, challenge yourself with these extra mastery challenges:

Now complete your propeller board using the numbers Side A 30-90 : 37

                                                                                            Side B 10-90 : 17

 

Also remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Topic:

Computing – Hour of Code

Explore NASA’s exciting new efforts to reach the Moon and then Mars. You can design your own animated mission patch, imagine your life as an Artemis astronaut on the Lunar Gateway, take control of robotic rovers, and even create your own lunar habitat.

Work your way through the collection of space-exploration coding lessons, You can tap into your artistic side in "Design a Mission Patch," get creative in "Tell Your Lunar Gateway Story," take control of robots in "Rover Relay," and imagine your home in space in "Design A Lunar Habitat."

All of these step-by-step lessons will help you learn about real-life NASA missions while strengthening your coding abilities. If you find these too tricky you can choose the Tynker Blocks version.
