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:

 

Mr Bashford: woodpeckers@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Mr Young: kingfishers@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

 

Have a good day!

From Mr Bashford and Mr Young 😊

 

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:

 

Today you will be practising more arithmetic questions. If you find any difficult have a look at the video clips at the bottom of the page to help you.

Complete the arithmetic challenges below.

You may want to start with the mild challenge or if you are feeling confident go straight on to the arithmetic challenges. 

Now use your arithmetic skills to try these mastery challenges:

In the top corner of your propeller board, you will have a space to write your number.

 

Range 10-20: 18

Range 30-60: 53

Range 350-450: 365

Range 30-99:44

 

Don’t forget 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.

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.
