English

Today we are going to continue our creative writing by writing an ‘extreme weather’ acrostic poem. An acrostic poem is a poem where certain letters in each line spell out a word or phrase. The poem can describe any extreme weather you like (e.g. a thunderstorm, hurricane, blizzard or cyclone).

 

To create an acrostic, follow these five easy steps:

  1. Decide what to write about.
  2. Write your word down vertically.
  3. Brainstorm words or phrases that describe your idea.
  4. Place your brainstormed words or phrases on the lines that begin with the same letters.
  5. Fill in the rest of the lines to create a poem.

 

When you have drafted your poem and have played around with your word choices, write it out neatly and illustrate it with some little drawings.

Geography

There’s more to our extreme earth than the weather!

 

Today I would like you to find out more about the physical processes that have formed our landscape. The link at the bottom will take you to BBC Bitesize and I’d like you to follow their lesson on Volcanoes. In addition, you can watch Maddie & Greg's Extreme Earth Let's Go Live replay on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C36aB6JEGms&list=PLmTANLv-GyXVBjQrPUQozH5jpUpikrSpD&index=3&t=0s.

When you have filled your brains with the information covered, I’d like you to draw and label a diagram of a volcano. To do this, you will need to research images of the cross section of a volcano (there are lots of different images for you to choose from). I have saved an example below which you may use, but there are lots of different examples online that you may prefer - the key thing is that you learn the different parts of the volcano and can label your diagram confidently.

 

I would like this to be a detailed diagram, so please make sure you include the following vocabulary: ash cloud, crater, lava flow, main vent, secondary vent, layers of rock, conduit and magma chamber.

 

By the way, there is some excellent information about volcanoes on the National Geographic website… take a look!

Reading

Please make sure you continue to read daily and record the details in your home/school liaison book.

Maths

Well it’s day 3 of our fraction unit and today we’re going to go even deeper into equivalent fractions. I reckon some of you will blast this out of the water as the last time we covered it you all did really well. Even so, it was a while ago so this is a good chance to refresh your memory. I have added an equivalent work sheet onto the end of this maths block if you feel you’d like a bit more practice.

 

Don’t forget to complete Arithmetic paper 3 (see below). You should be feeling a bit more confident now after two days of practise… Are you up for beating yesterday’s score?

3. Use the relationship between the numerator and denominator to identify equivalent fractions

The third lesson on fractions, aimed at Year 5 and 6 pupils, in a series produced during the school closures period in summer 2020. For a full list of lesson...
