This lesson will include completing pictograms and bar charts from given data, as well as looking at the limitations of graphs.
We will begin by matching tables with their corresponding graph. Next, we will recap reading and interpreting graphs, looking at what we can and can not find out from the graphs. Finally we will complete bar graphs and pictograms using data that we have been given.
Answer questions about the bar charts that you are given.
Task A requires you to answer using numbers and sentences.
Task B requires you to use the graph to say if statements are true or false
For our Literacy learning today, we are are going to practise our comprehension skills.
On Tuesday, during the half term holidays, Christians celebrate Shrove Tuesday which is also known as Pancake Day.
Pancake Day marks the start of Lent. Lent is a time of preparation for Easter and lasts for 40 days. During Lent, Christians give up treats and rich food to help them to focus on Jesus. Pancake Day is the last chance to use up rich food such as fat, butter and eggs.
Read the 2 star text to find out Pancake day traditions around the UK and the rest of the world. Read the questions carefully and answer the questions. Answer the questions in sentences (where possible). Some questions will have the answers in the text but others may require you to think about why a writer has included certain features or to make predictions.
Today in our R.E. lesson we will be learning about holy books in Hinduism
Hinduism does not have a single holy book, but several holy scriptures (holy books or texts.) Neither is there any one person who wrote the main ideas down. Together this collection of books support and guide Hindus in their daily life, family and in society. They have also contributed to the way in which Hindus worship.
Read the 'Holy Books' PowerPoint to find out about:
- the 2 main categories of Holy book in Hinduism
- the 4 Vedas (and how they are divided)
- the themes of Hindu stories
Task 1 - (1 star activity) Cut out and stick the picture that helps to explain the contents of Hindu holy books
Task 2 - (2star activity) There are several holy books. Hindus use them when they are needed or when they want to learn more about an aspect of the religion. Look at the topics in the table and use the information in the PowerPoint to decide which of the holy books they should read. Write down ALL the relevant holy books - sometimes there will be more than one.
