For Maths and English, continue to follow the Hamilton lessons if you wish. There’s a range of activities, but feel free to dip in and out of the Hamilton activities and those that I post below.
Using your recapped features for persuasive learning, write a letter to persuade somebody in your family about something. Think carefully about what you could persuade someone of. Don’t forget to use topic sentences and reasons to justify your ideas. Also, remember that every paragraph should be a new idea/reason to help persuade in your favour!
Think about daily uses of decimals, percentages and fractions. Make a list of all the things you talk about using those units in your household. For example, percentages for football statistics or decimals for money.
If you complete the challenge, have a go at writing a similar one of your own.
Think about your favourite form of exercise or sport. Think carefully about what makes the sport/exercise fun and enjoyable. Think about how you make progress in that sport, what does it look like? Write about that sport/exercise and what 5 clear steps of progress would look like for a specific skill you have learnt. For example,
- You can kick a ball.
- You can kick a ball in the direction you want.
- You can kick a ball in the direction you want with the correct amount of force.
- You can kick a ball in the direction you want with the right amount of force to connect with a target.
- You can kick a ball in the direction you want with the right amount of force to connect with a moving target.
Find something in your home that is destined for landfill, upcycle it into something that gives it another life, such as a decoration or something for your garden.
A final note before the holidays:
Missing our wonderful class, hope you all have a happy and safe Easter holiday and that the weather turns out for us all so we can enjoy the sunshine. If you want to do any of the activities over the break, feel free. If not, have a relaxing time and I’ll be posting work in this same way after the Easter break.
From, Miss Marfleet 🙂
