MATHS-

Today in Maths we will be looking at capacity and volume. We now know that capacity means the amount a container can hold and volume means how much there is inside something. To start off there are some questions on the GP where you will need to write down the volume of each one. Then you will need to work out the capacity of the different containers by adding the amounts together (column method). For the workbook sheet, you need to find the capacity by adding the amounts together, the first one has been done for you.

I understand that it is very difficult to read the measuring beakers on the pictures so where possible (without writing the answer) I have wrote down the volume of each one just above it. If you really can't see or read it where I haven't wrote it above don't worry you can miss that question out.

Carrying on with our skill of 'visualisation' choose one of the activities that you haven't yet completed this week.

Text visualisation activity-

Read each quote taken from the text and close your eyes, create that mental picture in your head and write down what you are imagining. Use all your senses!

Drawing visualisation activity-

Read the text first and then close your eyes, draw the first two images, objects, settings or places that pop in to your head from the 'The boy in the dress'. Then copy the sentences down from the text that help you draw these images.

Chapter visualisation activity-

Write down what you visualise at the start of the chapter, the middle and the end. Use your senses to answer each question. Finally, write down how visualisation helps you when reading.

Comprehension questions-

Answer in full sentences using the text.

WRITING-

Today you're going to write your biography! You've done an amazing job so far planning it and then today you can apply your finishing touches and write it. So far this week you have:

-Created a bank of facts.

-Thought about the information to include under each sub-heading.

-Produced four sentences that include a range of conjunctions.

Today I want you to use all of the above to write your biography in your neatest handwriting whilst focusing on your spelling and reading every sentence as you go!

If you aren't sure how you would like to set out your biography, underneath there are templates which you can use. There is one for Miss Crawshaw's group and one for Mrs Russell's and Mr Hayes' group.

CHALLENGE:

Can you include a question?

an exclamatory sentence?

commas for a list?

prepositions?

Don't forget to leave a line after each paragraph and every paragraph must start with your sub-heading (underlined if possible) I can't wait to read them. Just in case you missed the work on collecting facts, using sub-headings and including conjunctions. I will attach this work below.

HANDWRITING-

Today we are moving on to the wave letter - d.
