Have fun and keep active! Here are your tasks for today, take your time and have breaks in between each task:
Task 1: English
LO: To use poetry to investigate characters
Follow the instructions on the PowerPoint below and use the templates to create your poems. Write your poems into your exercise books. Take your time and really think about what you know about Matilda already so that it makes sense. Use your best presentation and I can't wait to read some of your creations.
Task 2: Maths
LO: To explain reasons for your working.
Complete this arithmetic test below into your exercise books. However underneath each question, show me how you worked out your answer. Also explain in writing how you answered each question.
For example, question one is:
18 + 6 + 6 = 30
I worked this out by adding 6 and 6 together which equals 12. Then I had to add 18 + 12. I knew 8 and 2 added together to make 10. So I added 10 + 10 + 10 which equaled 30.
Task 3: History
LO: To investigate Ancient Egypt
Follow the PowerPoint picture below and answer all questions and activities into your exercise books. Don't forget the date and learning objective!
Next activity: Looking at the set of the Picture Cards below, sort the cards into two groups: those that are related to ancient Egypt and those that aren’t. When finished, create a table in your exercise books and write each picture into a column for Ancient Egypt and a column for NOT. Underneath explain how you knew they were Egyptian using your prior knowledge, explain how you knew the pictures were Egyptian.
Do you know what the other pictures are of?
Were they before or after the Egyptians?
