Tuesday 16th March
Morning Check in on Seesaw – this will be going live at 9 a.m., but don’t panic, you have all day to respond.
Phonics – Our sound of the week is w/wh. Tuesday’s task in your pack is ‘Cloze the gap’. Choose the correct word to fit each sentence. Maybe you could play 10 minutes of Nessy also?
Tables –I will post on Seesaw your tables which you can write down and try and then you can mark them yourself using the marking slide…no cheating. You are then going to revise dividing by 8/9 with remainders.
Literacy – There, their and they’re
Today’s grammar homophone is there, their and they’re and another one which you may be familiar with, but lots of people can get wrong. Watch the following video to learn a little more about there and their.
Now have a look at the following website and PPT to learn more. Afterwards there is another video for you to watch with a quiz at the end, so make sure you have your whiteboard or a page handy to write your answers.
Numeracy – Written Division continued
Today you’re going to continue your written division from yesterday.
Before you start your work for today, why don’t you play the following Kahoots to practice those division facts with remainders which are much needed for this work and check SEESAW too!
WAU – Saving Water
Water is a very important natural resource that we have and we are very lucky that we have it at the turning on of a tap. We are also very lucky that we do not have to pay for our water like some other countries do.
If we did have to pay for our water, we may think a little more carefully about wasting water and ways we can save our water usage.
This is our focus for today’s lesson. Watch the video from NI Water below on Saving Water and look at the PPT. When you are ready, complete your water pledge raindrop telling me one way you will try to save water in your home.
Today’s Main Task:
Design a poster on Saving Water!
You can use the A3 page in your pack to do this or maybe you’d like to use Word, PPT on the computer or Pages, PicCollage or another APP on the iPad – you can choose.
You must state ways on your poster that people could save water.
Remember: Good posters have a good mix of text and pictures and are bright and colourful with writing that is easy to read.
Don’t forget to send your finished posters to Mrs Boyd on SEESAW!
Class Novel – Chapter 9 on SEESAW
Well done for completing Tuesday’s activities. Rest up for another day of fun activities tomorrow and maybe do some reading if you can to finish your afternoon! J
