Daily Learning Blog – Tuesday, 19th May
Good morning Sycamore class. Here are some delightful tasks to be completed on this wonderful Tuesday.
LO: Making inferences
- Follow the link, watch the videos, and complete the tasks in your home learning book.
- Make sure to pause when appropriate to give yourself enough time to complete the tasks.
LO: Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers
- We have looked at this topic before, where we have an improper fraction (the numerator is greater than the denominator), and we want to change it into a mixed number (uses both whole numbers and fractions).
- Watch the videos, and complete the 2 worksheets in your home learning book.
LO: Mayan Religion and Gods
- Open the powerpoint presentation at the bottom of the blog page, and read about some of the Mayan gods.
- Task: I would like you to create your own Mayan god. Here’s what I’d like you to come up with:
- What the god is in charge of – it could be weather, crops, day/night, or something else. Think about other ancient gods you have learned about in previous years to give you some ideas
- Name of your god
- Draw an example of a temple that might have been built to honour it.
- Each god has a good side and an evil side – how might your god be both good and bad?
- Draw what your god looks like – use the examples provided in the slide show to give you some ideas.
- Any other interesting facts or details that might make your god interesting, powerful, or unique.
LO: Learning about Jane Goodall
- Jane Goodall is an English scientist who is famous for studying chimpanzees in Africa.
- Follow the link, read the biography, and answer the 10 question quiz at the bottom of the page.
- In your home learning books, write the 10 answers (you’ll get the correct answers after you complete the quiz, so you’ll know which facts to write.)
That’s it for today :)
Fun fact of the day: Scientists believe there are still around 5 million species of animals yet to be discovered.
