QUOTE OF THE DAY
Hello Turing Class!
See the table below for today’s learning.
Just a reminder that it is really important that you continue to read and practise the timetables every day. I know this is not always in the table but this must be done daily.
Remember if you don’t have a home learning pack you will need to complete the work in your own notebook or on a piece of paper.
If you have any learning-related questions email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send me pictures of your learning or things you have been doing whilst at home – I will be putting these on the website.
LI: Long division.
Write the date, Roman numeral date and the LI in your maths home learning book (or on paper if you do not have a home learning pack).
Today, you will continue to practise long division.
I will upload some teacher modelled examples to help you.
I have put a red, blue and gold worksheet in the resource section – choose the worksheet that you think you need.
Complete at least one of the worksheets for your independent activity.
There is also a challenge worksheet.
LI: To research Mary Leakey.
In literacy this week you are going to write a biography about Mary Leakey.
Remember a biography is an account of someone’s life written by someone else.
I want you to think back to when you wrote a biography about Nelson Mandela. What did you include in your biography? This will help you with today’s activity.
Today, I would like you to research Mary Leakey – Mary was a British paleoanthropologist and is linked to our science topic.
Whilst doing your research, think about:
Here are some website you may want to use:
Make notes under today’s LI.
LI: To understand the impact of damming rivers.
Turn to the back of your literacy home learning book and write the long date and LI.
Today, you are going to learn about dams and the reasons why dams are built.
Go through the PowerPoint (which you will find the in the resource section). There are some videos for you to watch so make sure you’re in a quiet place so you can hear them.
Once you have gone through the PowerPoint, read the case study notes about building a dam (in the resource section). You will then need to copy the table below in your books. Your task is to complete the table – thinking about the advantages and disadvantages building the dam will have in each section. I have done an example for you.
There is also a challenge which you will find on the PowerPoint.
I have set a task on TT Rockstars for you to have a go at. The session will expire on Friday so make sure you do it before then.
