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.
Here are today’s EBM questions: EBM – 26.01
Maths: Comparing information in charts/graphs
This week, we are going to begin looking at some different types of charts and graphs. Today, we are to compare information in charts/graphs
Here is today’s video – which talks through this idea with some diagrams and calculations: Statistics – Comparison, sum and difference
Here is the work sheet: Maths – Comparison, sum and difference – 26.01
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.
Another aspect which may be useful when writing non-chronological reports is parenthesis. The link will explain this in further detail. However, parenthesis is a way we can quickly include additional information about something. We punctuate it using commas, dashes or brackets.
Here is the link for this: Using parenthesis in your writing
Please try and make sure you complete all the activities for this – but, more importantly, think really careful about what it is you are learning about.
Here is your WCR text: Theseus and the Minotaur p1
Here are your questions: Theseus and the Minotaur p1 Q
In history, we are going to continue our work on Ancient Greece. Today, we are going to explore democracy in more detail – particularly the role of Athens in its development and its importance
Try to make sure you complete the tasks in the video and send them in (as well as completing the quiz).
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 (email@example.com) any question if you are confused with or don’t understand anything.
I look forward to hearing from you.
