Buenos Dias Year 5!
Today I would like you to join a very special assembly. The Duchess of Cambridge will be hosting a nationwide assembly online. Her theme is 'spread a little kindness', which is all about children's mental wellbeing. Please follow the link below and join in. The assembly starts at 11am. Please let me know what you learn :)
Please send me the work you enjoyed the most to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Learning Today
Lo: to compare an author and a director
So this half term we have been studying a film and in all our previous terms we have used a book. Today I want us to think about and compare authors and directors. Authors write a story using words on a page whereas a director tells a story through a film. They can include lots of things that an author cannot use in a book like sound. What do you think is the same about how they tell a story and what do you think is different?
Draw a line in the middle of your page. Use similarities and differences as your headings. I want you to try to think of at least 5 things on each side. Check out my example table below; I have also thought of our first similarity. Both authors and directors tell a story. Good luck and let me know on Purple Mash what you have come up with :)
Lo: to translate a shape
14,235,577 + 256,743
29,045,204 - 539,002
390 x 512
4723 ÷ 31
Today we are going to continuing using translation to move shapes to different positions on a grid. But we are going to use more than two instructions. Take a look at my example so I can explain.
When we translate a shape, we can give more than one instruction.
The instructions are always given with left/right first then up/down.
Look at the arrows on this grid and count to find out the instructions.
I can see that the shape moved 3 squares to the right then 4 squares up. I would write these instructions as (3 right, 4 up)
What are the new coordinates for the shape?
Here is another example:
For this shape I would like you to translate it (3 right, 3 down).
For each corner of your shape. Count 3 squares to the right then count 3 squares down. This will translate your shape to a new position.
When you have found the new position of the shape I would like you write down the new coordinates.
Remember to always read the X axis first then the Y axis. I can see that the new shape has these coordinates:
(-5,2) (-2,2) (-5,5) (-2,5)
Am I correct?
I think you should be ready to try these ones independently. Here are 3 shapes with translation instructions. Follow the instructions and find the new position for the shape. In your books write down the new coordinates for the translated shape.
Here some challenges for today. You do not need to do them all. Have a growth mindset and be brave learners :)
Lo: How do Muslim charities try to change the world?
Today we are going to continue learning about Islam. The focus for this lesson is charity. Giving to charity is one of the 5 pillars of the Islamic faith, as we learnt last week. I want you to do some research today. Click on the two links below. They will take you to Muslim Aid and Islamic Relief. These are two very important Muslim charities. I want you read about them and what they do.
Answer these questions with your research:
A. List some of the ways the charity helps people in need
B. Who supports this charity?
C. Why do you think they give their money?
D. What does the charity do to make a difference for people who are very poor? Does it work?
E. Where in the world does the charity give help? Make a list.
F. Does the charity follow the teachings of Islam? In what ways?
G. What do you think is good about the charity? Make a list.
Have a great day. Theo :)
