Writing

 

In the pages we have read today, Marty tells us about what Duncade was like many years ago. I would like you to write a setting description of what Duncade was like using the language from the book. 

 

First, I would like you to collect adjectives and language that you can use in your setting description and make a note of it. 

 

Then, I would like you to use the language and the pictures I have attached in a PowerPoint, of different vocabulary from the book, to help you write your own setting description of Duncade. You must consider describing how things feel, look, sound and smell. 
You can use:

  • Expanded noun phrases e.g. sharp, pointy rocks.
  • Similes (when you use the word as or like to compare when describing) e.g. as long as a giraffe’s neck, sharp like a knife.
  • Conjunctions e.g. and, so, but, however, although, because, while.

Maths

 

ROYG - Today you will be learning about hours in a day. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

 

B2 - Today you will be learning to recognise a quarter. Remember quarters are when something is split into 4 equal parts. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

 

B1 - Today you will be learning to describe the position of objects and shapes by recognising quarter and half turns. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).

Science

 

Today you will be learning what a plant needs to grow. I would like you to visit this link: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9f87hv and read through the attached PowerPoint to find out what a plant needs to grow. 

 

Then, your task is to create a poster that tells people what plants need to grow well. Attached are some examples. You could draw a flower in the middle of your page and write the information around the sides with drawings or diagrams.
