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.
Following on from Florence’s question during Friday’s live session, I thought it would be good to try doing a live session more regularly – like last week’s, these will be completely optional. We have another live session planned on Friday – this will hopefully be a lot shorter than last week’s. We will do another session with Larry – so that those that didn’t get a chance last week could do so this week.
Here are some EBM questions for you to have a go at before maths.
Maths: Addition and subtraction (multi-step problems)
Today’s lesson explore multiple step problems and strategies on how best to break these down. Bar models may be useful to help visualise some of these questions.
Here is today’s video – which talks through this idea with some diagrams and calculations: https://vimeo.com/461416883
Here is the work sheet: Multi-step problems – add&subtract (3)
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 (Q3 and 4 are particularly difficult)
Here is today’s chapter:
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.
English – Writing
Given most of us don’t seem quite secure on apostrophes, we are going to continue some work on them.
Here is today’s task: Apostrophe proofread
What you need to do is proofread this piece of writing and correct the mistakes – they are all apostrophes mistakes. Some mistakes are where an apostrophe has been used incorrectly and some are where an apostrophe is missing.
Remember, apostrophes are needed to showing missing letters (omission) or to show that something belongs to something else (possession)
If you have found you are confident with the first task, here is an extension for you to try:
Any questions, please ask.
Here’s the 2nd page of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief p2
and your questions: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief p2 – questions
In science, we are going to look at what happens to the particles when something “dissolves”.
I would like you to make try and make notes (along with answering the questions in the video) – in a similar way to the work I show you by Meryn and Ollie earlier in the week.
Here is your lesson: What happens to particles during dissolving?
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.
