Ciao Year 5!
I hope you all had a restful, fun and sunny weekend. I am looking forward to our catch ups again this week. So look out for my call. I wasn't able to chat to you all as I couldn't get through but try to let you parents know to look out for a withheld call.
I also wanted to announced that Barbara and Amanda have been busy working on an assemblies blog. It is now available and they will be updating it weekly. Find it under the home learning tab at the top of the school website but here is the link...
Also, Mercedes has been busy creating a music blog. It has loads of activities for you to work your way through. Please check it out, it is also under the home learning tab at the top of the school website but here is the link..
Our learning today
Lo: to analyse a section of an article
Today I would like you to continue reading and analysing the article. Read and unpick.
In your books can you answer these questions. Use evidence from the text when appropriate.
What is this section telling us?
What new information have we been given?
What are the key issues it addresses?
What have we learnt about the whale?
What questions do you have?
Lo: to calculate the volume of a shape
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
12,347,843 + 9,262,038
59,361,048 - 43,374,190
467 x 483
5910 ÷ 29
Now for our new topic this week. We are going to be learning about volume. So what is volume?
How is it calculated?
Here is my example..
So first of all we need to look at the measurements of the shape:
Length = 12 cm
Width = 4 cm
Height = 7 cm.
Let's take the length and width and multiply them
12 x 4 = 48
Now let's multiply that answer by the height.
48 x 7 = 336
So the volume of this shape is 336 cm³
You can use your CLIC strategies to do the multiplications. Smile strategy would work well with this question.
Hope that all makes sense. The volume of a shape is the space inside a 3d shape. Find the length, width and height. Then multiply the length and width. Then multiply the answer by the height. You will have the volume of the shape.
Have a go at these..
Lo: to explain different life cycles
Every living thing has a life cycle. This means that they are born, grow, get older, they have children and eventually die. Today I would like you to research the difference between the life cycles of a mammal, amphibian, insect, bird and plant. I would like you to draw the cycle with labels in your book.
This may take you a couple days. Take your time. Please send me pictures of your drawings and labels.
Here are some helpful links or you can watch these short clips..
