Maths- 75 minutes
This term we are going to start work on measure- with a focus on area and perimeter. Perimeter is a 1d measurement (measurement of length), around the outside of a shape.
Watch the video, pause it when you need to, rewatch it.
Now try the worksheet.
If you need a ruler and don’t have one, let me know!
English- 90 minutes
We will be working through this together at the 11 o’clock Zoom. After this, you will be able to continue with the writing task independently.
This term, we will be reading a new text. Below is a picture from the first page of the first chapter.
What can you see? Look really carefully at the whole picture. Look for clues about the characters and the setting.
We will discuss your ideas in the Zoom session.
Now read the text below that goes with this picture.
Here are some questions about the text. Have a go at answering them.
- Who has just scored a goal?
- Why is the word “GOAL!” in capital letters and have an exclamation mark afterwards?
- What was going through his mind when he scored?
- What is the setting for this scene?
- In the last line, why does the writer use the word “familiar”?
Next, we are going to think about what we know about Will.
Below is a diagram that includes Will’s football shirt.
If you know something about Will that you feel is definitely true then this would be placed on the shirt inside the inner circle.
If you think something might be true but are not totally sure then this would be placed in the middle circle.
Anything that you think is less likely to be true should be placed on the outer circle.
You must have a reason for putting your idea in a particular place.
I will collect your ideas on the Zoom call and put them on the diagram. You do not have to blog them here.
YOUR WRITING TASK – Over the next few weeks, you will be writing entries to Will’s diary. Today, we would like you to write Will’s first entry which is based on what we have looked at and discussed today. You should write in the first person (as if you were Will). You should aim to write about 50-100 words.
You will have written diary entries before and later in the week we will go over their main features. Today, we would like you to just do your best!
