Good morning! Great work yesterday everyone.
Today it’s time for a little bit of writing. We’re going to write a non-chronological text over the next few days. You’ve done this in year 4 for turtles, and in year 5 for space. So you know we need an introduction to start, which tells our reader a little bit about the subject- but not too much. Just a few sentences to get them started. Remember this is just our “salad” starter dish! Don’t forget you can use rhetorical questions to involve the reader and adjectives and superlatives to make it interesting. We’re going to write about Ancient Greece, as we continue to discover more. Here’s mine.
Around 3,000 years ago, Ancient Greece was the most important place on Earth. It was the centre of Science, Maths, athletics, architecture, politics and trade for the whole world. But did you know that Ancient Greece was not actually one country? It was made up of a group of smaller countries and islands each ruled by their own King, and Athens was the main country.
Now you have a go.
Yesterday we looked at length. Today let’s look at weight and mass. Remember mass is how much “stuff” there is in something- that does not change, so if we measured the mass of an apple on Earth or the moon it would not change and is measured in Newtons (N). Weight is changed by gravity. So the apple would weigh less on the moon because there is less gravity there, pulling the apple down. Weight is measured in grams and kilograms (g / Kg)

Of course the best way to get grips with weights is to use them! Over the next week I challenge you to do some baking- cakes, cookies, whatever you fancy.
