Reading

Here’s today’s chapter from Pax:

Writing

There are different types of nouns. See if you can colour this in (you can use different colours than stated if you wish):

Nouns

Here’s some notes if you need a reminder.

Common nouns are names for everyday objects – e.g. pen.
Compound nouns are names formed from two separate nouns – e.g. bedroom.
Abstract nouns are names for ideas, thoughts or feelings – e.g. happiness.
Pronouns are not actually nouns but can be used in the place of a noun – e.g. he.
Collective nouns are names for groups of things – e.g. herd.
Proper nouns are names for specific things – e.g. England.

 

Daily Video

Today’s animation comes as a recommendation from Alex:

Here’s some questions to get you thinking:

1.) What did the girl always want to be?
2.) What was the girl’s name?
3.) What did her father do for a job?
4.) What did her father do with the girl’s shoes when she broke them?
5.) What do you think the girl regretted?

Science

In science, we are going to look at “taxonomy” or the classification of living things. All living things fit into different groups. The video below tries to explain this:

Don’t worry if you found some parts of this video confusing – it discusses some quite tricky science.

 

Your task in science is to find the scientific name of 10 different organisms (try not to just have animals – plants, fungi and bacteria are living things too). An organism’s scientific name is based on the genus is from and the species of that genus. For example, humans are the species “sapiens” from the genus “Homo”; therefore, their scientific name is Homo sapiens (sometimes written as H.sapiens).
