Bonjour Year 5!
How did your research into plastic pollution go? I hope you found out lots of facts. Some of them are really scary. I know that the more we learn and research about this topic, the more angry, frustrated, sad but also passionate I feel. I feel Passionate because I want things to change so much. How are you feeling about plastic pollution? Let me know on Purple Mash..
Our learning today
Lo: to use causal connectives
Ok, so today I wanted us to do a bit of grammar as we haven't had a chance for a while now. We are going to be practising causal connectives. What are they, you might be thinking?
I want us to write some sentences using causal connectives with plastic pollution as our topic. Here are three examples..
By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than sea life; for this reason, people are campaigning to reduce the use of plastic.
If we reuse plastic bags when we shop then we will reduce the amount of plastic used; consequently, reducing the amount entering our oceans and harming sea life.
Charities such as WWF have a great website with information about plastic in the ocean; therefore, more people are becoming aware of the dangers ahead.
You can use this writing frame to help you come up with your sentences if you want the support or you can come with your own using the facts you found out yesterday.
Lo: to calculate the volume of a shape
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
274,521,547 + 63,572,681
863 x 472
3478 ÷ 18
Today we are going to do some volume based challenges and problems. Use the strategies you learnt this week and your CLIC knowledge to support you. Read the questions carefully and think about what it is asking you to do. Don't give up after one try if you find it tough, keep going and use a growth mindset.
Lo: What do religions teach about death?
Last week we learnt about reincarnation. This is just one religious belief about death and afterlife. Today I would like you to research what other religions believe about death and afterlife. Download this powerpoint and have a look through the information.
Can you make a poster about all the beliefs you can find out about. Have a think about what atheists believe and include your own beliefs as well. Make a poster in your workbook or on Purple Mash.
Have a great day. Theo :)
