Good Afternoon Everybody!
Good afternoon all,
I hope it has been a productive day for you all and you managed to get a lot of things done. Answers and examples have been uploaded for you to check your work against, so please do so you can self-assess.
I wanted to share something exciting with you all that I saw last week – the May Supermoon! I was quite lucky to get to see a clear shot of the moon and managed to take a brilliantly clear picture with my telescope. I thought it would be exciting to share with you. We enjoy sharing too!
Remember, if you are unsure about anything, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Also, you can share your work onto Seesaw to share with your class teacher, so please do. We will be happy to hear from you.
Joe Wicks is back for another week to motivate us for our love for PE. Please subscribe to his YouTube channel below to take part in his live PE lessons from 9-9.30am. Remember it is important to stay fit and active even though you are indoors.
LO: To research the experiences of a soldier during World War One.
This week you will be writing a poem about the soldiers of war. This could be about their experience or from their perspective.Today, you will be researching the experiences soldiers had during World War One. Consider what they had to do, how they felt, the sacrifices they had to make, where they had to rest, what they had to eat and their experiences in the trenches. Please gather information in note form, how you did for War Horses at the beginning of the term to make it easier for you.
We are moving onto a different Maths platform. Please use the link above to access the daily Maths lessons on BBC Bitesize. When you click on the link, you will see various subjects, click Maths and follow the instructions on the screen. Home learning focus will be on there daily. Each lesson will include a variety of activities, worksheets and videos. Complete all your learning in your book and Seesaw the work you have been doing daily, after self-marking the activities (answers will be found under the relevant activities).
LO: To understand transport networks.
· Transport networks can be tangible, such as rails, roads or canals, or intangible, such as air and sea corridors.
· These networks link places together and allow for the movement of people and goods.
· Transport networks are usually built where there is a high demand for the movement of people or goods.
· They run between places where journeys start or finish, such as airports, bus stations, ferry terminals or railway stations.
Task: produce a leaflet on transport networks.
Consider the following for your leaflet:
· Research on transport networks (doesn't need too much information- basic information will do); such as railways, roads, sea corridors, etc.
· Who is your audience? You must design your leaflet accordingly.
· Discuss that transport networks can be tangible or intangible.
· Benefits and possible disadvantages of network links.
· Where transport networks are usually built.
We look forward to seeing some examples of your learning later on in the week during Seesaw. Do not worry if you cannot complete all the learning today, but try to complete it for the end of the week as you also have History learning.
LO: To know what The Dig for Victory Campaign is.
You will be learning about The Dig for Victory Campaign. Using the PowerPoint provided and your own research on The Dig for Victory Campaign – you need to create a poster about the campaign.
Remember to consider:
· Who is your audience? You must design your poster in accordance to its audience.
· What information is relevant for your poster?
· What pictures and captions will you include?
· Will you discuss the pros and cons of the campaign?
