Class 4 – Daily Activities – 12.05

Good morning. Before you check out today’s activities, here are yesterday’s answers.

If you missed a maths video/lesson or want to revisit something, here are the previous posts.

 

As always, you don’t have to do these activities at a set time or in a set order – that’s all up to you. Also, you don’t have to be doing work all day! Feel free to send in some pictures or videos of some of the other things you have been doing at home.

Reading

Last week, we finished the final chapters of Pax. If you’ve missed any of the chapters and want to hear them again, here’s a link to all the previous posts since Easter.

Here is the 2nd part of the first chapter of The Graveyard Book. It starts just before yesterday’s ended.

 

Here’s some questions about what you’ve just listened to:

1.) What did the man Jack see instead of the ghosts of the graveyard?
2.) Who was “the caretaker” of the graveyard?
3.) What does Mrs Owens decide to call the baby?
4.) Think back to the the name of the chapter; why is the chapter called this?
5.) Other than the child, who else is alive in the graveyard?

4.) Give 3 different pieces of evidence that supports your answer (to Q3).
5.) Who inspires Pip to improve?
6.) How would describe Pip’s exam day? Why?
7.) What happens to Pip after the his exam?
8.) What does Pip do at the end of the video which means he is given Ace’s cape?
9.) Who was the clip made for?

 

Science

All living organisms are divided between the seven different biological kingdoms:

– Animals
– Plants
– Bacteria (these are microscopic single-celled organism – some of which can cause illness and others, such as those that help us with digestion, are useful to us)
– Fungi (these includes organisms such as yeast, mushrooms and mold)
– Archaea (these are very similar to bacteria – you don’t really need to know about these yet)
– Protozoa (these microscopic single-celled organisms – you don’t really need to know about these yet)
– Chromists (these show some similarities to plants and include algae – you don’t need to know about these yet)

 

Viruses are not included in these as they are not considered “living”.

 

Today, we are going to look at the animal kingdom. Animals can be grouped as vertebrates (have a backbone) and invertebrates (do not have a backbone).
