Bullet Points

 

Bullet points are used to organise and structure writing. They make long or complicated pieces of text easier to read and understand.

 

Bullet points can be used to break up complicated information into a list, making it easier to read.

For example:

I went to the park and I played on the swings, the slide, the monkey bars, the merry-go-round and the balance beam.

Can become:

I went to the park and I played on the:

  • swings

  • slide

  • monkey bars

  • merry-go-round

  • balance beam

Top tips!

  • Don’t forget to place a colon (:) before the items in a list.

  • Keep the introduction sentence so the reader knows what the bullet point list is about.

  • You do not need to include the word ‘and’ in a bullet point list.

Activity 1

 

Write a bullet point list of all the things you can find inside the human body.

You need to include:

  • An introduction sentence explaining what the list is about.

  • A colon (:) in the right place.

  • Each thing inside the body on a new line.

Top tip!

You could start by writing: 'Inside the human body, there is:'

 

Activity 2

Convert these sentences into bullet point lists.

1. Humans have five senses which are sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste.

2. To help some bodies to work their best we use glasses, hearing aids and wheelchairs.

3. The human body is strong, hard-working and comes in all shapes and sizes.

 

Activity 3

Now convert these bullet point lists back into sentences.

Remember: When writing a list in a sentence, you have to put a comma between each item and use the word 'and' between the last two objects.

1. Your skeleton:

  • is made up of bones
  • supports your body
  • protects your organs

2. To understand the world, we use senses in our:

  • eyes
  • nose
  • ears

Maths

 

Making a Whole

 

Today we will be looking at making a whole. For example

0.9 + 0.1 = 1

0.75 + 0.25 = 1

Your number bonds to 100 will help you with this.

Look at the slides below with more information about making a whole then complete the activities below.

Outdoors Fashion Game

Have a go at creating a nature dress or hairstyle. Cut a dress/trousers shape out of cardboard and place it against different patterns you find in nature. Take pictures to show the design of your dress/trousers. (from Born of the Forest)

Draw a face and see what different hairstyles you can find in nature. Try to make them as wild, colourful and different as you can.
