We hope you have had a good week and are looking forward to enjoying your weekend. Here are next week’s activities.
It is great that you are all able to continue learning whilst at home but it is important to stay safe online. Here are some links to help you to be safe when working at home on your device. Share these with an adult.
This week will focus on persuasive writing. You will work through some reading and grammar activities before writing your own persuasive letter of your choice. Try and share some of your sentences which have a list of three. You can share your letters and with us on the blog too. We would love to see if you can persuade us. As previous weeks, there are spellings included in the lessons.
Remember to access the Scholastic reading library. Well done to those of you who have logged on each week. Try summarising one of your texts this week and sharing it with someone at home. Start by summarising it in three sentences then one sentence before using just one word to summarise what you have read.
This week, you will be converting measures (time and length) and you will be using this knowledge to help you solve problems. Remember to use jottings to help you. When you are solving problems, think about what you know and what you need to find out. What can you do to help you solve it? Share any hints and tips on the blog.
Be aware in this lesson that you may need to convert your answers from minutes to hours. Here is a short video that will help you to do that.
