Tuesday 9th June

Good morning everybody!

 

We hope you enjoyed learning about the incredible Great Wall of China yesterday. Remember when you have completed any of your work, please email it to your class teacher. We would love to see the work you are doing!

 

Here are our email addresses below:

 

Miss Harcourt: falcons@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Mrs Walters: kestrels@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

 

Have a good day!

From Miss Harcourt and Mrs Walters 😊

 

English:

The Chinese are famous for their myths and legends. Click on this link below to find out what a myth is.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx339j6/articles/ztxwsrd

After that, you will be looking at two Chinese myths. The first one is called ‘The myth of Nian’ which is in the form of a PowerPoint or a word document attached below. You just need to read this one.

The other myth is called ‘The Chinese new year story’. This one is attached below as a PDF. We would like you to read the story and then create a story map in your book to represent the story. Remember your story map needs to:

  • Be in the form of a spiral
  • Each section needs to be numbered
  • Each section should have a detailed picture
  • Each section should have a few words underneath to summarise what is happening.

 

The story is in 13 parts on the PDF file. We recommend you follow this structure for your story map, so therefore your story map has 13 parts.

Maths:

 

Firstly today complete an arithmetic warm up:

 

Today in maths you are going to revisit learning on negative numbers. You will use negative numbers in context and begin calculating with them. You will also use a number line to identify negative numbers.

 

Watch the videos below to remind yourselves about negative numbers:

Here are some negative numberlines to help you today:

Now have a look at the main maths task below:

 

If you need another reminder 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 rounding challenge yourself with these extra mastery challenges:

Now complete your propeller board using the numbers Side A 30-90 : 87

                                                                                            Side B 10-90 : 87

 

Also remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Topic:

Today you will be finding out more about Chinese new year. Have a look at the video below and the word document attached.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mtbp32YyuCs

Once you have done this, we would like you to create an acrostic poem demonstrating your knowledge of what you have learnt so far about China and Chinese new year. There is also a PowerPoint or word document attached which goes through what an acrostic poem is.

Your poem should spell out the words ‘Chinese new year’ as shown below. I have also added an example of what each line should like.

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, 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!
