Good morning everyone and happy Friday!
I hope you have all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. Do you have any plans? Tomorrow is my birthday so I am looking forward to being able to sit in my Mum's garden and enjoy some cake and treats! Let's hope the weather is nice for whatever you have planned.
For your Maths work today you are going to be recapping subtracting decimals. The work is similar to yesterday, but you are subtracting instead of adding! Again, there is a video to watch to help with your learning, then I would like you to complete the questions in your blue book. Once you have your answers, use the answer sheet to check your work.
For your English work yesterday, you drew a picture of a sea creature, it was either one that already exists or a made up animal and then you produced a character description on it.
For your English work today, I would like you to have a go at producing an information text on your animal. We have completed lots of these in class, so remember to set your work out in text boxes, have a clear title and only include key information about your animal.
If you want to, you could choose a different animal to research and write about. You might want to read the work lower down for Topic and see if this is the animal you would like to focus on today.
Areas you could write about:
- Daily diet
- How it moves, including speed, when it is awake etc.
- How big it grows
- Who eats it
- It's appearance
Remember to write in the present tense, use fact boxes, images, alliteration and any other exciting features you can think of!
FACT OF THE DAY: Did you know that the fastest fish in the ocean is a sailfish?
I didn't, infact I hadn't even heard of one! You might want to carry out some research and see what you can find out.
Questions I wanted to find out:
- How fast does it travel?
- What does it look like?
- How big is it?
- What is the second fastest fish?
- What do they eat?
- How long do they live for?
- Where is it most commonly found?
Good websites to visit:
Carry out your own research and see what you can find out! You could sue this research to write your information text for English if you want to.
I challenge you to be as speedy as a sailfish!
Complete the following five activities as fast as you can - star jumps, press-ups, squats, lunges and hopping on the spot. How many of each activity can you do in a minute? Can you do the exercises again and beat your score?
