Guten Tag Year 5!
I wanted to start the day but saying really clearly that while we all spend so much time online now, we cannot forget our school rules or our rights respecting behaviour. Treat everyone equally, fairly and with respect at all times. If you speak to other members of our class online always be safe, kind and respectful. Do not be a bystander if you witness someone else treating someone unfairly. When you speak to either me or Louise, please be honest and open. We are here to help with your education and your well being.
Finally, a reminder for you guys to check out the assemblies and music blogs. They were updated last week with new content. Also, don't forget to check out the ELSA blog regularly.
Our Learning Today
Lo: to sequence events
Before we watch any of the film, I am going to give you a set of images. They are not in order. I have mixed them up. I would like you to put them in an order and create a story. Tell the story to a member of your family. Please label each picture with some notes about what is happening.
Here is a link to the images. You can print them out and stick them in order. If you do not have a printer then I would like you to draw the images as a storyboard in your books. I can't wait to see what you come up with. Remember to be creative as we do not know the story yet so you will have to use your imagination.
Lo: to use coordinates in one quadrant
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
13,234,566 + 16,345,788
49,572,110 - 28,488,171
774 x 435
6632 ÷ 35
Today we are going to be reading coordinates on a one quadrant grid. Here is an example.
To find the coordinates of a point on a grid we follow the X axis first then we follow the Y axis.
Look at this grid. Can you see the point? To find the coordinates of that point we have to use the axes. I want you start at the 0 and follow the squares to the right along the X axis.
If you follow the X axis, you should reach the number 2. Then we need to move up along the Y axis. You should reach the number 4.
So to write these as coordinates, remember we need brackets and a comma in the middle. We write the X axis first then the Y axis.
The coordinates for this point are (2,4)
Here is another example.
Ok, we should be getting better at this now. So look at the grid. Look for the point.
Start at 0 and move along the X axis first. You should reach 5. Now move up along the Y axis. You should reach 1.
Remember we write these coordinates inside brackets and with a comma in the middle.
So the coordinates for this point are (5,1)
Here is my last example.
So we know we need to follow the X axis first and then the Y axis.
When we look at this one we can see that we can't move along the X axis because the point is on the 0. So 0 is our X axis number.
Then we move up the Y axis and find 2 is our number.
Remember we write the X axis first then the Y axis. We put the numbers inside brackets with a comma in the middle,
So the coordinates for this point are (0,2)
Now it's your turn. Here is a one quadrant grid with lots of points. Can you write down the coordinates for all the points on the grid.
Your challenge for today is to draw your own grid and plot 5 points on your grid. Use a ruler to draw your grid and don't forget to write the coordinates for your points.
Lo: to write a mnemonic
Yesterday we made a poster with facts about our solar system. Today we are going to learn about the order of the planets. To do this we are going to write a mnemonic. I will explain more later. Look at the image below. This is the order of our planets, it also shows the difference in size. The planets are not this close together though, they are millions of miles apart.
A mnemonic is a way of learning the order of a long list of things. The way we do it is by taking the first letter of each word in the list and create a sentence with a word starting with each letter. So M, V, E, M, J, S, U and N. Have a look at my example:
Can you see that the first letter of every planet is also the first letter of every word in my sentence. This is a mnemonic. When I say the mnemonic, it helps me to remember the order of the planets because I remember them from the letters.
Today you are going to create your own mnemonic to remember the order of the planets. Remember each word must start with the letter from the order of the planets. You can't mix up the order and your sentence has to makes sense. Post them on Purple Mash. Good luck.
Have a great day! Theo :)
