Daily Learning Blog – Wednesday, 13th May
Good morning all, and welcome back. Here are today’s learning activities.
LO: Improving sentences
- Open the document at the bottom of the blog page to find a collection of sentences that are to be improved.
- You are going to complete the 3 star difficulty, but you may read the other 2activities to help your understanding.
- You will need to improve each sentence by adding 4 things:
- Fronted adverbial
- Detailed adjectives and nouns
- A relative clause, beginning with a relative pronoun (who, which, that, whose)
- A subordinating conjunction (there is a document with examples of subordinating conjunctions at the bottom of the blog page)
- Example: The dog walked through the field.
- Becomes: With great excitement, the delighted dog dashed quickly through the muddy field, which was wet with dew.
LO: Multiplication and division word problems
- Open the attached document and complete the questions – don’t forget to write your answers using a full sentence.
- The questions will require either a multiplication or a division – read the questions carefully to determine which one is needed.
LO: How plants reproduce
- We have been looking at how plants reproduce, and the process of pollination.
- Please follow this link, watch the videos, and complete the 2 online quizzes to test your knowledge: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znghnrd
- One of the videos was used last week, but it’s still a good idea to watch it again to solidify your learning.
LO: Using timelines
- Timelines are extremely important when studying history, as they give us an idea of the sequence of important events, and which ones happened first.
- Your task will be to create a timeline of your life, making sure that you include the major events of your life. Remember: timelines are usually horizontal, and have earlier events on the left, and later events on the right. Yours might look something like this:
Day of birth (2011) - Started School (2015) -Moved House (2016) - Sister was born (2017)
- Please include years if possible – ask your grown-up if you’re unsure.
- Events you may want to include are: siblings being born, getting a pet, learning to ride a bike, moving house moving school
- Please include at least 6 events.
That’s it for today! See you tomorrow
Fun fact of the day: There is an average of 90,000 words in a book.
