Thank you for the work you have been doing so far this week. We really appreciate how hard you are working.
Here are some activities for the rest of this week.
Numeracy activity – We will be trying multiplying using the grid method. There is a video on our Google Classroom to help you with this. If you are not able to access this, the example question might help to explain the method. Then, complete the following questions. For Section A, go over the 2 and 5 times tables first – for Section B you will need the 3 and 4 times tables to help you.
As before, you can upload a photo of your work to google classroom if you’d like me to check it. The video showing how to do this is still on google classroom.
Literacy activity – If using Google Classroom -Please watch the video of chapter 4 of ‘The Butterfly Lion.’ Then, complete the attached poetry activity (also on Google Classroom).
If not using Google Classroom – have a look at this poem about an African animal:
Task 1: Find and write down the 5 adjectives from the poem.
Task 2: Use this poem as inspiration for your own poem about a lion. The elephant poem rhymes, but yours doesn’t have to. 4 lines is fine, but you might what to challenge yourself to do 8! Try to include adjectives in your poem too.
Bible story activity – read through the story ‘Jesus calms the stormy sea.’ I have put a presentation of this on Google Classroom, and attached a PDF here for those not able to access it. There is an activity on Google Classroom that you can complete. If not using Google Classroom, think about the following 3 questions, after reading the story:
- What does this story tell us about Jesus?
- What does this story tell us about Jesus’ disciples?
- Why do you think Jesus was able to calm the stormy sea?
If not using Google Classroom, you could also draw a picture that illustrates the story.
If you feel like trying some craft…
You could try making an African style piece of jewelry. You can make these with a paper plate and some wool or pasta pieces. They look just as effective with just the plate too. If you don’t have paper plates, you could cut a circle of card from an old cereal box perhaps – make sure you cut safely and have a grown up with you.
Enjoy the rest of your week! Stay safe and happy everyone!
