How did you find the first day back of term? It feels very weird when we're not actually back at school doesn't it?
We hope you able to complete yesterday's tasks.
Here is your Talk it out Tuesday task.
English - Writing
We’re continuing with our theme of recapping important features of writing. Today’s topic is paragraphs.
Paragraphs are something that lots of you are able to explain when and how they should be used but you are not using them automatically in your writing.
You should be using them without reminders in all of your writing. Just like capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and full stops at the end.
Here are a few reminders about paragraphs.
Remember: We change paragraphs when we are starting to talk about a different person, a different place, a different time or a different topic.
Have a look at this series of paragraphs below and answer these questions.
What is the overall theme of the text?
What is the theme of each paragraph?
Why has the author changed paragraphs?
Read this short story (it is your reading task for today) and explain why the author has changed paragraphs.
English - Reading
Read the story of George the Giant Tortoise.
Today we’re going to be learning how decimals can be added together to make a whole.
This used some of the knowledge you already have of number bonds to ten and jigsaw numbers.
For example, we know that 4+6=10 so we can transfer that knowledge to know that 0.4+0.6=1 whole (4 tenths add 6 tenths is equal to 10 tenths and we now know than 10 tenths is the same as 1 whole.)
CHALLENGE Question 5
CHILLI CHALLENGE Question 6
How long have computers existed for? Did you know that coding existed before computers really existed?
Today's task is to look at this website: https://www.akita.co.uk/computing-history/
It's an interactive timeline showing how computer have changed in the past 70 years.
Use the information you find on the website to make your own timeline. This could be on a powerpoint presentation, writing it out in your book, drawing picture and annotating them or another way that you can think of to show this information clearly.
Stay safe, carry on working hard and be kind.
