As we enter the next phase of our Lockdown we look back on the last week or two.... our Zoom Party, VE Day, Our Sleepover and everything else we've done. In your Exercise Book at the English end please write a Dear Diary entry dated 11/5/20 and tell your diary about what you've been doing. What unique experiences have you had? How are you and your family feeling? What has this Lockdown given you that you might not have had/experienced without it?
It's been a little while since we focused on spelling specifically. It is important that we learn to spell well and grow the vocabulary that we can use and spell. Each week we will practise our spelling.
Firstly let's check the basic lists that we are expected to learn. Look at these lists - Start with List 1, then List 2, then List 3 and so on. As you start to look make a personal list of 5 words that you know you need to learn to spell. As soon as you have 5 words on your personal list STOP looking. Make these the first 5 words to learn for this week.
Think about ways you could learn these e.g:
Your second set of words to learn this week belong to a set that follow a spelling pattern or rule. Choose which set of words you wish to add to your week's personal list to learn:
Now click on the links below to practice your chosen set of words. Learn first by clicking the SPELLING TILES button and play the games and then click the PRACTISE button. You can finish by doing the TEST (you do not need to register or log in)...
A tangram is an ancient Chinese puzzle where you make pictures using mathematical shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a certain shape (given only an outline or silhouette) using all seven pieces, which can not overlap. It is reputed to have been invented in China during the Song Dynasty, and then carried over to Europe by trading ships in the early 19th century. It became very popular in Europe for a time then, and then again during World War I. It is one of the most popular dissection puzzles in the world.
Follow the tutorial below to make a tangram. You will need scissors, ruler, A4 paper or card (which you must make into a square like we do in school).
Can you re-assemble the pieces into a square?
STEP 3 - THE CHALLENGES
Our new topic is called 'Wonderful World'.
We will be exploring life on Earth, its plants and animals, its habitats and the challenges it faces.
The Chinese loved creating living things using tangrams. Below are some living things made using all the tangram pieces...with none overlapping....can you make them? Resilient Ranger skills needed here!!!!
Below are some more for you to make.
Could you make one on a dark background and photograph it to send me?
