Here’s this week’s rough timetable of what this week would look like if we were in school. Again, the amount of work isn’t going to be as much as if we were in school, but you may find it useful to follow. If you’d rather structure your day a different way, please feel free.
We currently only have a few people who have asked to join today’s live get-together session. If we don’t get more, then I will unfortunately have to cancel this.
Find the last page you read of your reading and practise your handwriting by copying it up for 20-30 minutes.
Maths: Drawing Line Graphs
Today, we are going to start explore drawing line graphs.
Here is today’s video – which talks through this idea with some diagrams and calculations: https://vimeo.com/464197707
Here is the worksheet: Maths – Drawing line graphs – 29.01
Here are some optional questions for you to have a go at today after finishing the main activity if you want something a bit more challenging.
Sentence / Fragment / Run-on
As we usually do in school, here is a Sentence / Fragment / Run-on task:
The first page is just information / a recap on the difference is between an sentence, a fragment and a run-on.
Today for spelling shed and TTRS, we are going to have some Hive Games and Arena matches.
TTRS arena games are going to be tricky, but if as many of you as possible plan to go on the Arena game mode at 11:00, then there should be enough to play games against each other.
I have also set up some Hive Games on Spelling Shed – we will start the first of these games at 11:40 and once finished, we will start the next game straight after.
Here are the codes for these games:
Here is your spelling activity for today: -tial (3)
It continues with our -tial pattern.
As always you should be trying to read every day. However, as we would usually do after spellings (in school), it would be great if you could spend an extra 30 minutes reading.
In art today, we are going to explore typical designs on Grecian pottery. Typically, these will include images of people, gods or monsters. As you should have already noticed, Grecian pottery is usually black and orange – with the image being more of an outline with some simple detail and different shades to add perspective. Here is an example with a hydra as the main design:
Your task today in art is to draw your own design/image which could go onto a piece of Grecian pottery. To do this, you could either research and copy a design of an image that you find or you could come up with your own.
Virtual School Library
As you all know, reading (and listening to stories) is one of the most important activity you can do. Here is virtual library. A new author is uploaded each week and one of their books is made available for FREE as a pdf and audiobook. So far, 2 authors have been included.
As always, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) any question if you are confused with or don’t understand anything.
I look forward to hearing from you.
