Good morning again! How is it Wednesday already? The weeks are just flying by! Another hardworking day for most of you yesterday. Thank you for sending in your work and completing your tasks. I was glad the rain stopped a bit yesterday. Hope you managed to join in with the virtual sports day!
Here are your lessons for today:
LO – To write a transcript of an outside broadcast.
Today’s lesson will again be on the picture book ‘Tuesday’ so re-watch the video/picture slides if you need to refresh your brains. Today, you are going to create an outside broadcast. This is where a reporter is on the scene to get eye witness reports of a breaking news story. The purpose is to interest, amuse and inform the public and give them relevant information as the event happens. Below is an example of an outside broadcast all about the events of the flying frogs. Read it carefully and become familiar with the tone of the different people.
Your task is to write a transcript of an outside broadcast, with the purpose of interesting, amusing and informing the audience. You need to think about how the report is introduced, how the audience are informed of the main issues of the story and which witnesses could be interviewed. You can use the same names as the ones in the example or create your own.
These will need to be written in your book as this is a longer piece of writing. You can also type it. Whichever way you choose, please remember to send it to me. If you really want to make me smile (I know you do) and are feeling brave, you could act it out and send me a video!
LO – To calculate the area of rectangles.
Now we are going to look at calculating the area of rectangles. To work out the area of a square or rectangle, multiply its height by its width. If the height and width are in cm, the area is shown in cm². If the height and width are in m, the area is shown in m².
There are 2 parts to this lesson and you need to do both.
LO – To explore traditional Indian musical instruments
This week we are staying in Asia but moving to the west of the continent and the country of India. Open the PowerPoint and read the information. You then have 2 tasks.
The first task is to watch the video clip of the 10 most popular Indian instruments and write a list of all 10 in your books. Then choose your 3 favourite instruments and explain why you have chosen them.
Your second task is to look at the three Chinese instruments we learned about last lesson. Are any of the Indian instruments similar? If you find any that are similar, write them down and say which Chinese instrument they are similar to.
Please remember to send in any comments on the music blog, or pictures of your work by email to Miss Hartley.
