Follow the link below of the National Oak Academy reading for pleasure unit. This is great for encouraging children to identify text types and take joy in reading a variety of texts. Recently in class we have been speaking about different genres of text types and how it is good practice for the us to engage in different text types, like newspaper and magazine reports as well as information books. I hope you enjoy this lesson and I am looking forward to you sharing with me some of your reading journeys throughout this lockdown .
Thinking back to your persuasive writing lesson yesterday, try and put those reasons into sentences using positive adjectives (look back at the persuasive brochures from yesterday to get some ideas). Pick some of your favourite features for the continent of your choice and write 4-6 expanded noun phrases which will best describe these.
e.g.- The mountains here in Asia are magnificent and picturesque.
There are many tropical and clear oceans with soft, sandy beaches.
Log in to TTRS and practice your x tables - its really good use for our work on factor pairs as it requires us to know our times tables fluently.
Finish your maths work from yesterday if you have not completed it all- i.e.- your poster and extension task. Next you can have a go at strengthening your reasoning skills to solve the questions to these factor pair problem.
For today's topic lesson we will be looking at settlements and the difference between villages, towns and cities. To understand this lesson you need to work your way through the PowerPoint and watch the clip (in the link below).
Your first task is to match the statement cards with the most appropriate settlement. You can print or cut these out or create your own table/chart with pens and paper.
Secondly you will be asked to use the knowledge you have collected throughout the lesson to create your own map for a village, town or city and label each feature. There are some examples on the PowerPoint to give you a good idea. This can be your own made up village, town or city or you might want to base it on one that you already know.
