Giraffe, Cuttlefish, Shrimp and Ostrich – well done to you all!

Wolf wrote a lovely dragon General Description using a fantastic vocabulary.  Panther also wrote a successful General Description using the structure of the complex list very effectively.  Well done to you both.

Science:

Moth not only completed the science tasks set, but also dissected and labelled the parts of a flower!  Brilliant extra practical work!

Well done to ALL Eagle Owls for continuing to complete your Home Learning with enthusiasm and perseverance!

Friday 26th February

Please continue using the Daily Ten to make sure that different parts of your maths is not forgotten – so keep picking different levels and different topics from this app:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10

Also continue to take this opportunity to get really good at all your tables – they are so important for EVERYTHING that we cover in maths:

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

This week we are developing our skills with drawing and interpreting line graphs. You have seen bar graphs and pictograms in previous years and so we are now going to look at a different type of graph: LINE GRAPHS. They are exactly as named – the data is plotted and then each data point is joined up with a line from point to point (like dot to dot drawing!). We are happy for you to print off, or copy the appropriate questions from the screen and work in your home learning books; or of course you can work on the screen.

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

Today you will continue to find information out from tables. There are some with missing data and you have to try and work out what goes into the gaps using the table to give you clues.

Here is one more site to have a go at answering questions on line graphs if you want to:

Dragonology:

Look again at the Dragonology page: Gargouille. Re-read the GENERAL DESCRIPTION paragraph. (Shared with you on Google Drive.)  This paragraph is one very long and complicated list.  It uses semi colons to separate items in the list and commas are used for pauses and to mark simple lists within the longer paragraph list!  There is a lot of lists!

The copy of the paragraph shared with you has the semi colons highlighted in one colour and the commas in another.  Look at it closely.

Task:  Today again, try writing your own dragon description list which uses semi colons between the main item and other punctuation within the lists, like commas.   Again, use some of the words from your glossary in your dragon list.

Please complete on Google doc or slide and share with all adults in the class, or in your Home Learning book.

Cosmic Kids Yoga is a fun way to get moving

Or just get outside and play in your garden if you have one!

MUSIC

Continuing with our Oak Academy Music lessons to have a more in depth look at some musical terms and what they mean. This week, we will continue to develop our understanding of pulse and rhythm as well as consolidating the names of some notes. There is repetition from last half term so that we can practice these musical terms and become really familiar with what they mean.

Your work and the support video will be sent to you.

Art / DT: pop-up mini book
