Today's home learning activities
Welcome to Day 1 of your home learning journey! I’m going to explain today’s tasks below. Remember, all written components should be completed in your home learning book – grammar, maths, English, and any topic-related work. Please write the Learning Objective (LO) and date, just like we do in school.
- English: Open the uploaded document
- LO: Using adverbials to give verbs more detail
- Follow the instructions on the document and complete the tasks.
- The answers are located at the bottom. Please try not to peek until you’ve finished! If you’re stuck, feel free to check your answers as you go.
- Remember: Adverbials are words that give more detail to a verb (a doing word.)
- Example: The girl ran with great speed.
- ‘With great speed’ is the adverbial, because it tells us how the girl ran.
- Maths: Open the uploaded document
- LO: Addition and subtraction using column method
- Addition and subtraction calculations. Use the method of your choice – mentally, or column method.
- Think: Remember, a number that reads the same forwards and backwards is called a ‘palindrome’
- LO: Researching the tallest mountain in the world
- It’s a well-known fact that Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world. Using the internet, answer these questions:
- Who were the first 2 people to climb it?
- Between what 2 countries is Mount Everest located?
