Our home learning this week:
Maths - we are learning all about decimals! In class we have been looking at decimals and fractions.
English - Persuasive writing. We have been writing a persuasive script in the style of Sir David Attenborough. We have thought carefully about deforestation and observed how Sir David Attenborough speaks when he is presenting.
We watched the following videos:
How deforestation in Madagascar is threatening animal habitats | Geography – Deadly Dilemmas - YouTube
Deforestation in Madagascar - Attenborough and The Giant Egg, Preview - BBC Two - YouTube
We are working in pairs to write a script, in the style of David Attenborough, about deforestation using emotive and persuasive language.
In guided reading we have been reading the Explorer by Katherine Rundell
Story and questions will follow shortly.
Just a reminder, the only "homework" I set across the Christmas holiday was to read and keep a written record of anything you have read (Title, author and genre).
See you on Tuesday 7th January.
Today in class we have been experimenting with creating an electrical circuit powered by fruit! We used potatoes, apples, limes, lemons and oranges.
CGP homework books will be going out on Friday this week (29/11/19). In order to get us back into our regular routine, this homework is due in on Monday. As this is a much shorter time than normal, please encourage the children to complete as much as they can but I recognise that they only have 2 days not a week to complete this.
Homework will be set on a Tuesday due back in the following Monday going forwards.
