Another week, another fresh set of Learning Tasks and Objectives.
In Maths, we would be beginning to start looking at Multiplication and Division. As this will be new learning, the bullet points are sequential. There are three steps to this week’s learning sequence. Please spend as much time on each stage as you feel necessary- 1 step does not necessarily take 1 day. Also, please remember you are able to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply asap.
In English, I would like you to continue to look at information texts.
Step 1- Look through your books at home. Which are fiction and which are non-fiction? Have a look for the features in the poster download below.
Create a checklist and familiarise with where these features can be found.
Can you write me a definition of what fiction and non-fiction means?
Step 2- Have a go at sorting these book front covers into fiction and non-fiction. Add two more onto each page from your own book collection:
Step 3- Can you find the features of a non-fiction text in a book of your choosing? If you do not have an non-fiction book at home, please select Link 1. If you do have a non-fiction book, select from Link 2 or 3.
Step 4- On each page of your non-fiction book, you will find different features. You may see a title, sub-headings, a picture or diagram, a caption and some text. Which of those features can you find in this text?
Step 5- Hopefully you will have spotted that non-fiction books are filled with facts. Can you find the sentences that you see in an non-fiction text?
For your wider curriculum task, as part of our Science unit, we are going to be thinking about our bodies and comparing them to bodies of different animals. I am going to leave this task fairly open as you will differing interests but here are some activities, choose at least 1 to complete:
- Find out about organs that we have in our bodies. What are they used for and where are they? Do we share these with other animals? Are there other animals without some of these organs?
- Compare our hands to other animals. What makes our hands special? What can they do? Which animals have hands like ours and which have paws? Is there an alternative to hands and paws?
- Compare your body to our caterpillar bodies. What is the same and what is different?
- Explore your senses- complete a sense test. Many examples of these can be found online.
