Tuesday 5th January
Make sure you complete at least 20 Minutes of reading at home today. Also, listen to Mr M reading the first part of this Great Fire of London Book.
Use the question matrix to generate some questions about the Great Fire of London. Send them in to the class email address and we will set up a bank of class questions.
Visit the following site to play a Great Fire of London game:
Listen to the narration and click through the pages of the game until you reach the section which has the question, ‘How do we know about the houses that people live in in 1666?’
Which of the four items would have been useful to help us answer this question?
-Samuel Pepys’ Dairy?
-Hearth Tax Document?
-Picture of Wooden Houses?
Use the magnifying glass icon to explore each item before deciding whether to place it on the tick or on the cross.
When you have completed this activity, use the ‘How do we know about the houses that people live in in 1666?’ Document attached to this blog post to record your thinking. When completed, send this document into us so we can give you some feedback.
Today we are focusing on making equal and unequal groups. Start by watching this learning video:
Challenge 1: Can you make 2 equal groups of objects in and around your house?
Challenge 2: Can you make 2 unequal groups of objects in and around your house?
Challenge 3: Can you make 3 equal groups of objects in and around your house?
Challenge 4: Can you make 3 unequal groups of objects in and around your house?
Challenge 5: Get 12 items from around your house. Can you arrange these items into 4 equal groups using the technique demonstrated on the learning video?
When you have completed each activity, if possible, take a photograph and send it in to the class email address so we can see what you have done and add some pictures of your work to the blog.
Now watch the next learning video:
Use the learning from this learning video to complete the ‘Make Equal Groups’ worksheet. We have attached the answers as well so you can check and mark your own work.
In ICT this term, we are going to focus on developing the skills we need to search the Internet effectively.
First of all, we have set you an ‘Introduction to the Internet’ activity to complete as a 2Do on PurpleMash. You may need to work alongside an adult to complete this activity to help with the reading.
Once you have completed the ‘Introduction to the Internet’ activity, we have also set you a quiz to test your knowledge on what you have just learned. Look for the ‘Internet Quiz’ 2Do in your list lof 2Dos.
If you are looking for a really hard challenge (you might even want to test your mum or dad on this one) why not try the ‘Can you decode?’ 2Do?
Remember to get in contact via the class email if you need any help or have any questions.
