Bonjour Year 5!
Thank you for all the chats I have had on the phone this week so far with you. Keep looking out for my calls. You guys have had some really interesting predictions for the sound investigation yesterday. Winston thought the first sound was a UFO, Zuzanna thought the second sound was seagulls at the beach and Suhan thought the last sound was a construction site. I wonder if any of you agree or disagree. Let me know when I call or post it to Purple Mash.
Keep sending in your favourite pieces of work to me at: email@example.com
Our Learning Today
Lo: to make predictions using sound
Yesterday, we listened to some different sounds and started to think about how they make us feel and what we imagine when we hear them. Today we are going to listen to some sounds from our film and make predictions. Here is the opening scene from our film. I want you to listen and have a think about what you hear. Listen to it a few times. Really try to imagine what is happening. What can you see?
Now I would like you to make a brainstorm in your work book. You can write 'predictions' in the middle of your page. Write down everything you heard. Come up with predictions about what happens and what it is about. Think about this opening scene from the film and imagine what the story is about.
Lo: to find angles around a point
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
87,232,948 + 42,445,663
47,323,958 - 21,233.967
723 x 721
8923 ÷ 47
Today we are going to finding missing angles around a point. A full circle around a point always equals 360°.
Let's have a look at my first example.
We can see this a full circle around a point. So the total must equal 360°. We know that one side of the angle is 238°. So we need to take it away from 360 to find the missing angle.
360 - 238 = 122
So the missing angle must be 122°
Let's try one more example.
We can see that this is a full circle around a point. So the total will be 360°. We can see two angles which we can add up.
157 + 137 = 294
Now we can take that away from 360.
360 - 294 = 66
So the missing angle must be 66°.
Have a go at these ones. Remember all the angles around a point have to make a total of 360°
Lo: What makes a fine mosque
Over the last couple of R.E sessions, we have studied sacred places and places of worship. Today we are going to focus on Mosques. A mosque is a place of worship for a Muslim person. Muslim people do not believe in images of Allah. It is believed that images of human figures, mislead and confuse people rather than help to enlighten them to God's messages. For this reason, Mosques are decorated with shapes and patterns to create beauty. As a whole class, we saw many examples of this when we visited the V&A Museum and most of you will have seen examples in your own family Mosques.
Here is a link to images of many different Mosques from around the world. I would like you to choose 3 of your favourites. Draw them and label what makes their individual designs beautiful. Write at least five words for each to describe their beauty.
Have a great day! Theo :)
