Ni Hao Year 5!
Special Mention this morning to Ahmed. He sent in his science and his literacy work. He has started his first chapter with loads of show not tell and it's very emotive. His science included drawings and descriptions of the stages in the moon's cycle. Amazing stuff Ahmed. Also a special mention to everyone that shared work on purple mash and handed in their moon cycle posters. Well done everyone, you are super stars :)
Another reminder to check out Barbara's video newsletter. There is lots of important info that you all need to know.
Please keep sending your wonderful work to me at: email@example.com
Our Learning Today
Lo: to plan a narrative
Today we are going to plan the middle section of our narrative. Write the sub-heading: His Present. This section will be about Baboon's life on the moon and how he feels about his life. To help you plan this section, I would like you to answer some of these questions:
What are his daily routines?
How does he live his life?
How does he feel?
What is his job?
Who does he work for?
Lo: to create a line graph
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
43,475,973 + 36,485,983
1,343,525 - 783,458
628 x 235
1283 ÷ 7
Today we are going to create a line graph together. I am going to give you some data and in your books you are going make a line graph. Here is some data.
This data shows the temperature of some water as it boiled slowly in a pot.
Can you see that we have the time in minutes for 0-10 minutes. This will be our X axis to show the change over time.
Can you see the we have the temperature scale going up from
10-100°C. This will be our Y axis.
Now you are going to have to draw the axes of your line graph.
It should look like this.
Your X axis along the bottom with the times in minutes.
Your Y axis going up in 10s with a temperature scale.
Now we need to plot our data. Look at 0 minutes, it says that it was 10°C at that time. So look at your line graph. Find 0 minutes and put an x at 10°C.
Then do the same for the rest. Mark the temperature at each time on the line graph.
It should look like this.
Finally, connect the marks up with lines so that we can see the changes over time.
You have created a line graph!
Now I would like you to do this independently. Here is another set of data. Look carefully at it and create an appropriate line graph in your book. Mark the data on the graph and then connect the marks with lines to show the changes over time.
This data shows the changes in temperature over a summer's day in Bethnal Green.
Lo: to code a cartoon
Follow this link to scratch. Read the instructions and watch the tutorial to code your own cartoon.
Please check out the Spanish blog for this week's lesson. There is a very special competition today. There is a prize for the winning poster. Make sure you all take part!
Have a great day! Theo :)
