Kali Mera Year 5!
A special mention this morning to Leo for sending me a picture of his Kenya work. He created an amazing detailed map of Kenya with all the key human and physical features. Great job! I know from our phone calls, that a lot of you have enjoyed the Geography and map work we have been doing. Keep sending me in examples of what you have been doing!
Our Learning Today
Lo: to write a process
Hopefully after all of our research and reading, we have now all seen a strong link to plastic pollution. These sea creatures died for various reasons in locations all around the world. The theme that links all the articles with our first one is plastic. So today I want us to begin to look into how this pollution ends up in our oceans. I want you to watch these videos and start to understand the journey plastic takes to end up in the ocean.
So how does plastic get into our oceans? Can you write a step by step process of how it ends up there..
Lo: to solve problems involving units of time
Let's start with some CLIC:
7392 ÷ 37
345 x 832
123,482,492 + 37,482,992
54,921,578 - 10,835,931
Today we are going to be working through some time problems. Here is my first time word problem.
To solve this problem we are going to use a number line. This can be tricky but also very easy when we get the hang of it.
Leilia starts her journey at 09.25 and finishes at 09.53. So to find the difference we have make jumps along our number line.
The earliest time will go at the start and the later time can go at the end of the number.
Now we have to make jumps along the number line in order to find out how long Leilia's journey was. I have decided to take it slowly and make jumps of 5 or 10 minutes. This makes it easy to move along the number and add up at the end. You might want to challenge yourself to be more efficient and use less jumps.
When we reach the end we have to add all our jumps up to find out how long Leilia’s journey was.
5 + 10 + 10 + 3 = 28
So Leilia's journey took her 28 minutes.
Shall we try another? Here it is...
Let's set up our number line. Earliest time at the start and latest time at the end...
Now we need to make our jumps along the number line to find out how long it took Mumtajur to get to Nandos. Again I am taking my jumps slowly but challenge yourself to be more efficient and use less jumps.
Let's add up our jumps.
6 + 30 + 10 + 5 = 51
So it took Mumtajur 51 minutes to get to Nandos.
Give these a go. Use the number line strategy to help you. Try to challenge yourself to be efficient and use the least amount of jumps. Use your brain if you are feeling really confident.
Here are some challenges. You do not need to do them all.
Lo: to create a clicker game
Today I want you to create a clicker game using Scratch.
Click on the 'tutorials' tab at the top, then select 'games' and then 'make a clicker game'.
Check of Ruth's Spanish Blog for this weeks lesson. Good luck and enjoy.
That is it for today and this week guys. Thursday is a day off and Friday is a bank holiday so there is no school. I will not be posting again now until Monday. Enjoy the 4 day weekend. Turn off the screens and devices. Spend time with your families and have lots fun. Be adventurous, try something new, stay fit, eat healthy and keep up that growth mindset. See you on Monday.
