Home Learning W/B 25th January 2021

Hi everyone!
I can't believe we are half way through this half term already!! I had a lovely day yesterday as it was my Birthday! My friend hosted an online quiz for me and Becky, I face-timed my family and I got a takeaway in the evening. I also watched Liverpool v Manchester United... again!!!
 
I hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to get outside and enjoy the snow :). 
 
Every morning at 9 o'clock I will be doing a 'morning check in'. This is where I will go through the work I would like you to complete each day and answer any questions that you may have. It is also our chance to see everyone and say hi each morning! 
 
Thank you again for sending your work to me, it really does put a smile on my face when I see how hard you are all working! I had another brilliant week teaching you through google-classroom. 
 
Have a great week and stay safe :)

Wednesday
 
Maths: First answer the 'Flashback 4' questions. Next watch the video and then complete the activity below. 
 
English:  Today we are going to plan a non-chronological report all about Africa. A non-chronological report is a non-fiction which means it is factual. A non-chronological report includes a Title and then sub-headings. Sub-headings are mini - headlines to direct you to the correct information.
 
Earlier in the year we wrote non-chronological reports about Widnes, so I know you will be able to complete the task :). 
 
Below you will find the planning sheet. The planning sheet has the 4 sub-headings already written for you. Today I would like you to plan your report. Write down keywords/phrases you may need to help you write your report tomorrow. 
 
Here are the 4 sub-headings: 
 
General Information (this sub-heading needs to include what Africa is and what the weather is like there). 
Animals  (write about animals that live in Africa).
Savannah (tell me what the Savannah is, what it looks like and what you may find there). 
Maasai Tribe (write about the tribe and their customs and beliefs).
Art:  For Art this week I would like you to make your own Maasai Necklace, The instructions say to use a paper plate however you could also use card :). 
 
I am looking forward to seeing your necklaces!! 
 
 
Thursday
 
Maths: First answer the 'Flashback 4' questions. Next watch the video and then complete the activity below. 
 
English: 
 Today I would like you to start to write your non-chronological report about Africa. Use your planning sheet to help you. I want you to take your time with your report so I only want you to focus on two sub-headings today then you can write about the other two tomorrow.

If you finish and have time, I would like you to write a book review based on the story 'One Day on Our Blue Planet: In the Savannah'.
Write about your favourite part and tell me why it was your favourite part. 
PE: As we are looking at African Savannah I have found an African Dance I would like you to learn! Watch the video a few times, then you could maybe even try and compose your own dance!!
