Tuesday 9th February
In this lesson, we will apply our knowledge of reading pictograms to edit, correct and construct our own.
We will begin the lesson by revising how to read pictograms before we think about how we decide which scale is the best when we are drawing them. We will finish by learning about how we add data to pictograms.
Click on the picture below to watch today's video lesson. Have a go at some of the questions on the video
Task A - Look at the pictogram and the table. Can you see any mistakes.? Can you correct them?
Task B - Create a pictogram for the different holiday choices
In this lesson, we will pretend to be a monster and free write an invitation asking other monsters to come to our pizza party. We will look at an example of an invitation and then children will write their own.
We will warm up for the lesson by choosing appropriate adjectives to describe nouns. We will think about what invitations are and when you could receive one. We will look at the structure of an invitation including how they are persuasive. We will finish by thinking about what a monster's party may be like:
- what games would you play?
- what food would you eat (thinking about our monster pizzas)
- what presents would a monster like

Your task - Use the the template below to write an invitation to a monster's party. Look at the example given to help you. You can magpie ideas from the examples that you have seen, use ideas of your own or both.
Today in our Science lesson we are going to look at a famous scientist who discovered 2 new radioactive elements which could be used to create x-rays of bones. Doctors use x-ray images to identify fractures and other problems. Before Marie Curie developed the use of x-rays in medicine, doctors had to diagnose broken bones and other problems simply by physical examination, which meant feeling for any injuries. Sometimes, this meant that injuries and problems were not spotted or not treated correctly. It could be dangerous for patients if their problems were not treated properly.
Once x-ray machines were developed and available, doctors could identify problems much more quickly and accurately.
Learn all about the life of Marie Curie and how X-rays are used today by reading the Marie Curie PowerPoint
Task 1 - Have a go and play 'Bone Bingo' with your family. Cut out all the X-ray pictures. Place them face down (so that you can't see them) on the table. Next choose a bingo card. Take turns to choose an X-ray picture. If you have the name of the correct bone, you can cover it. First person to cover all of their named bones wins!
Task 2 - Fill in the Marie Curie activity sheet using what you have learnt from this lesson and some research
