Good Morning Year 5!
I have quite a few special mentions this morning. I would like to start with Orson for sending in a variety of his work. His planets art, orbit facts, fronted adverbials and some maths. Amazing stuff Orson! I would like to mention Alima for sending in her fronted adverbials work. She has been really showing a growth mindset! I would also like to mention Dylan for sharing lots of his literacy work on Purple Mash. Brilliant work and thanks for helping others by sharing great examples. Finally, I would like to mention Leo. He realised that one of my maths questions did not work and let us know so that I could fix it. Thanks Leo! Keep up the great work everyone :)
Please send the work you are most proud of to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Learning Today
Lo: to unpick visual clues
Today we are going to look for clues to Baboon's past. Watch this clip again and look carefully for any clues to his past. What did you find? What do they tell you?
Hopefully you saw lots of clues. Here are the things that I saw.
In your books I want you to describe the clue and tell me what it tells us about Baboon's past. You can draw the clue and then annotate it with your ideas.
Lo: to translate a shape
58,332,630 + 934,644
63,766,237 - 34,871,679
632 x 197
7212 ÷ 42
Today we are going to move on to translation. So first of all, what is translation?
So the difference between translation and reflection is there is no mirror line. We follow instructions and move shapes to new places on a grid. Let's take a look at my example:
There are 4 points on this grid. They will make a shape when connected up.
First I want us to find the coordinates for each point. I can see:
To translate this shape we need to follow some instructions.
I would like you to move this shape 2 squares to the right.
This means that for each point on the shape you will have to move it to a new position 2 squares to the right.
Here I have followed those instructions and moved all the points on the shape 2 squares to the right. This has now been translated. This means it has been moved but has stayed the same shape but in a new position on the grid.
Find the new coordinates to check.
The coordinates that I see are:
Ok so it's your turn now. Here are 3 shapes and I have given an instruction for each. I want you to count the squares and work out where the shape will translate to. In your book write down the new coordinates for the translated shape.
Lo: to build a flappy game
