Good morning 2S,
Well, I hope the sunshine is going to return for us soon. Did you still manage to set up and do your obstacle course yesterday? At least the weather stayed dry. If you've got any photographs or videos of you doing it, please send them to me. I'm missing you all so much and it's really great to see you having fun and learning at the same time. I'll add them to https://www.fixby.org/photos-and-videos-of-you-and-your-work/ so that your friends can see them, too.
Here's the Jo Wicks link to get you warmed up for the day: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1
Have fun with this and your daily tasks!
Have you remembered that your spelling work is different this week? It's all about learning to use homophones.
Today, you need to learn how to use three tiny little words, but they're so important.
Work through this PowerPoint:
Add the correct word in each gap. Think carefully about what you've learnt today.
Here's the task (page 2 has the answers):
If you have a printer, you can print out this template. If not, don’t worry – just will just be able to write each section on paper with the headings.
You’re going to use your notes from yesterday to write the first section of Bolt’s Space Report about The International Space Station.
Here’s my WAGOLL:
The International Space Station is like a floating laboratory in space where astronauts live and work together. It has been orbiting the Earth since 1988. Do you know why it is called the INTERNATIONAL Space Station? It’s because sixteen countries worked together to construct it because it would have been too expensive for one country to do on their own. Russia built the living quarters for the astronauts and the countries of Europe built the vehicles. The best part is the amazing observation deck so the astronauts have the best view of Space and Earth! Rockets carried the ISS bit by bit into space and they were joined together by computers and astronauts. How clever is that!?
Remember to write in full sentences using capital letters and full stops for each one. You may also need to use commas, question marks or exclamation marks. Make it really interesting and engaging for your reader.
Here's your Flashback page to help you remember things that we've already done:
Press play quickly when you open up the PowerPoint so that you don't see the answers until you're ready!
Here are today's worksheets:
When it says use Base 10, just do column addition.
Here's today's problems of the day:
All of these words mean +
You'll need the addition vocabulary when playing the Mental Maths Train Game. These are the options you need to select:
When you make a prediction, it's okay to change your mind when you get some more information. In today's task, you might have a different idea when you see another picture of Beegu. There is never just one correct answer when you make a prediction, but you must be able to say why you think that.
We have already looked at how different materials are best suited for different objects. You're going to LOVE today's task because you can do a science investigation to find out which materials are waterproof. You should have all of the materials (or something similar) at home.
Before you do an investigation, it's always great to make some predictions (just like you've been doing in your Reading work on Beegu).
Fill in the first column. Do you think each material will be waterproof? Yes or No?
This PowerPoint will take you through how you can do the investigation. You may need to make slight changes depending upon what you have at home.
As you do the investigation record what happens and decide if each material is waterproof or not.
Were your predictions correct?
Which material would you use to patch up an umbrella? Why?
I hope you've enjoyed your tasks today.
See you tomorrow
