How did you find yesterday's tasks? Did you manage to make something that amplified the sound from a phone? If you did, send in your photos. We'd love to see them.
How did you get on with yesterday's wellbeing task? Today's task is also linked to kindness. Don't forget to head to the class PM blog and suggest people who you think deserve a Kindness Cup. We're really looking forward to hearing your reasons and seeing what you say.
English - Writing
Have a think about the different parts of the film.
Can you break it down into a beginning, middle and end?
Create a table like the one below to show what happens in the different parts of the film and to show how Sherman feels during these different parts of the story. To give you an idea of what to do, the table has been started for you but you should add in more parts to "What happens?" and "How does Sherman feel?".
How does he feel at the beginning, how does it feel in the middle and how have his feelings changed by the end of the film?
Try to collect as many different feelings as possible in each part of the table.
English - Reading
How did you find Ivan the Terrible yesterday? We're going to read the next part of Chapter 1 today.
“Just for a day or two...” said Mrs Blaizely in her coaxing tone.
I gave her one of my suspicious looks.
“Just for a day or two — what, exactly?” I asked as politely as I could.
“Chum him around,” said Mrs Blaizely. “Explain to him all the things the teachers are saying. And then explain to the teachers what he says back.”
“Be his interpreter, you mean?”
She beamed at me. “Yes. And, if he’s writing, you can translate for him. Just while we get him started. It will give him an idea of the sort of work you’re doing in your classes. He’ll soon get the hang of it.”
“But what about my own work?”
She didn’t laugh. She’s too polite. But she did raise an eyebrow because she knows that getting my own work done without being distracted hasn’t always been top of my list of real worries.
And, as I say, I do remember exactly how awful it is to have to start off in a new class with twenty-five new people whose names you don’t even know, especially if you can’t speak a word of the language — not even “Hi”.
“All right,” I said. “I’ll do it."
“Good lad,” she praised me. Then, just as she was sending me back to my classroom, she thought of something else. “Oh, by the way, Boris, please make sure the two of you are sitting in the front row during Assembly because I’ll want to bring Ivan up on the stage to introduce him to everyone.”
“Righty-ho,” I said.
Today we’re going to think about hundredths as decimals.
It’s always helpful to use a place value grid for this. Remember, you can draw one at any point if you think it will help you understand the question better.
This video should help you remember the difference between tenths and hundredths.
Question 1. Can you draw a place value grid to represent these decimal numbers?
CHALLENGE Question 5
Part of being a historian is asking questions even if you're not sure of the answer.
By asking these questions we are trying to further our understanding.
Below is a picture of an object. Your task today is to think of different questions you could ask about it. Share your questions with everyone else on Purple Mash, you might be able to answer each others questions.
Take cake, share kindness with others and carry on working hard.
