Happy Friday everyone. One more day and then it’s the weekend!
English – Remember the title I gave you a few days ago: Mourning Dove. Here are some photographs from the story.
Look at these 3 images.
Can you tell the story?
What do you think is happening? Look for clues/hints hidden in the images
Who is in the story? What do you know about these characters using the clues?
Write a paragraph as an introduction. Remember great sentence starts, interesting vocabulary, use your senses, describe.
Maths – some more angle questions today. Some of these use a protractor (what we use to measure angles)
Now try these!
True or false? A clock reads 3 o’clock, are the hands of the clock are 90° apart?
How many degrees does the minute hand move in 1 hour?
How many degrees would the minute hand move in 1 minute?
We’ll do some more work on angles next week
Computing – Purple Mash. I’ve set some coding challenges for you to do. Remember to submit your work so that I can mark it for you
History/Reading – I’ve set the World War 2 book Buster’s Blitz for you to read on Purple Mash. Try to read a chapter each day and then answer the quiz questions to go with each chapter to check you’re understanding. See if you can work out what the Blitz is/was? You’ll need this for next week
Have a great weekend and stay safe.
Maths answers to clock questions
This is true if we measure clockwise but false if we measure anticlockwise (270°)
In a full hour the minute hand would travel through 360°
If the minute hand makes a full turn each hour and we know there are 60 minutes per hour, we can calculate that the minute hand passes through 6° per minute, because 360° ÷ 60 = 6°
