We've reached the middle of the week already!
As always, it has been great to hear from you, there have been some lovely postcard messages this week that we have really enjoyed reading.
English - Writing
How did you get on with your amazing alliteration yesterday?
Today, you’re going to use your alliterative words from yesterday to help you create a persuasive poster advertising the Zepper 2016.
Remember in a piece of persuasive writing we use alliteration, rule of three and if you want to challenge yourself you could even include some rhetorical questions. A list of features of a persuasive text are below to remind you of all the things you could include.
We look forward to seeing your posters!
There are also some spelling tasks for you this week on Purple Mash. Head over there to have a look at them.
English - Reading
Before you read (listen to) today's chapter, write down a list of 3 things you expect to happen. When you've finished, go back and see whether you were correct.
Today we are going to learn about two new quadrilaterals.
Have a look at the diagrams below to learn about their properties.
I like to think of a rhombus as a wonky square (because all of its sides are the same length but it doesn’t always have right angles) and a parallelogram as a wonky rectangle (because its opposite sides are equal lengths but it doesn’t have four right angles).
Have a look at the sheet below and see if you can identify the squares, rectangles, parallelograms and rhombuses.
CHALLENGE: Which property means that not all parallelograms are rhombuses?
Today, we'd like you to write us a letter telling us what exercise you've done today.
Remember what we said yesterday, most of you should be going outside for a walk or cycle each day, it is important to keep physically active at the moment and as long as you and your adults stay at least 2m away from anyone else you should be fine. We know that some of you can't go outside, if that's the case - write us a letter about what exercise you have been doing at home, maybe it's Joe Wicks or Oti Mabuse or something else.
You can either write your letter in your home learning book or on the 2 do that has been set on Purple Mash.
How did you get on with the Spanish last week?
This week we have another video from Miss Harrison, check it out on the Spanish blog.
Don't forget there is also a Spanish blog on Purple Mash, it has been great to see some of you commenting on there.
Keep working hard, we miss you!
