LO – To explore the meaning of words in a text
Have a look at the picture of a creature I spotted when I was out walking over half term. It is the extremely rare Rhiswanozebtah!
I really couldn’t believe my eyes and I’m sure you can imagine my screams when I saw it! It is believed to contain DNA from four different animals: rhinos, swans, zebras and cheetahs – which gives it its name. Now you know it’s a mix of:
Swan plus the
O of rhino plus the start of
Zebra and the end of
You should be able to pronounce it now. Have a go!
I would like you to read the report below to help you find out more about this wonderful animal. You can also click on the link to listen to an audio version of the text.
Look at the questions on the pictures slide below and answer them in your book. You may need a dictionary or google to help you.
Have you ever seen this creature before roaming around Padiham? Let me know!
LO – To multiply unit and non-unit fractions by integers
This week, we are revising multiplication of fractions which we did earlier on in the year. Click on the link to take you to the White Rose website and look for Summer Term – Week 6. Watch the video for Lesson 1.
Then complete the worksheet I have uploaded below. There are quite a few questions today but they start off easy. Have a go and do your best. Mark your work and send me your score through the blog or by email.
LO – To find out about the life of Queen Victoria
Today we start our new History topic which is the Victorians. This is one of my favourite topics to teach so I hope you enjoy it.
The Victorians lived over one hundred and fifty years ago during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837 to 1901). Victorian times means during Victoria's rule which was the time Queen Victoria was on the throne. She ruled for 64 years.
Read the information on Queen Victoria’s life on the slides below. The link below will also take you to some more information with a video to watch.
Based on what you have read and by carrying out further research, I would like you to create a fact file on Queen Victoria. You can do this in your book on or a computer/laptop using word or publisher. I have put an example of how you could set it out below but you may choose how you present your work.
Please email these to me or post a picture on the blog.
