As-Salam Alaykum Year 5!
What did you find out on the CIA Factbook? They have so much information on every country in the world. It's fascinating the things you can find out. Leo was shocked at how big Egypt was compared to Norway! Apparently it is nearly 3 times bigger! Wow. What was your most interesting fact? Let me know on Purple Mash.
Also it was really great to get a chance to have a catch up over the phone with lots of you yesterday and a really big thank you from me to the parents that said such lovely things about the blog. It really made my day! If Louise or I haven't spoken to you yet then try to tell your parents to look out for a call. It would be wonderful to speak to you all.
Our learning today
Lo: to analyse a headline
Today I would like you look at the headline of our article.
Think about the images we have seen so far of the whale on the beach. I know it is clearly a sad story (like others we have read this year), but remember that we cannot hide from real life events like this. It is important to know them, understand them and hopefully grow up to change them for the better. So today I want you to analyse the information from this headline.
What does this headline tell us?
What new information have we been given?
What has happened?
How do you think it has happened?
What questions do you have?
Use your work book to do this.
Lo: to calculate the area of compound shapes
Let's start with some CLIC:
6291 ÷ 35
652 x 284
73,583,480 + 67,372,945
87,515,292 - 82,587,548
Today we are going to continue learning about area.
We can see that the length of the shape is 20cm and the width is 6cm.
So we multiply them. 6 x 20 = 120
The area of this rectangle is 120cm²
The smaller rectangle has a length of 5cm and a width of 3cm.
5 x 3 = 15
So the area of the smaller rectangle is 15cm²
120 + 15 = 135
So the total area of the two shapes is 135cm²
No it does not change the area because area is the measurement of the surface of the shape. Or when we look at it like this, the inside of it.
The two shapes are still the same size when we put them together. So the area of this compound shape is still 135cm²
Have a go at finding the area of these shapes. First find the area of the individual shapes and then add them together to find the area of the compound shape. I would like you do to at least three and remember to look at them first and choose your level of challenge (some are more challenging than others). Have a growth mindset and give it a go. I know you can do it year 5..
Here are today's challenges. You do not need to do them all.
Lo: What is reincarnation?
Today I would like to research reincarnation. What does it mean? Who believes in it?
Find meanings and understand these key words.
Check these links out, find your own on kiddle or search on espresso.
I look forward to some more catch ups with you. Have a great day! Theo :)
