SNOW DAY LEARNING- 2 March 2018
Dear Monet class.
Please complete the following snow day activities for Monday. These activities were set out to help you in your understanding of the different topics we have covered in class this week.
We have been learning a lot about Apartheid in South Africa and you have been able to complete various tasks on it. For your home learning, write a biography/paragraph on the life of Nelson Mandela. Be sure to include information about his background, how he helped get rid of Apartheid as well as a short description on his time as President. Remember to make use of punctuation marks, as well as co-ordinating conjunctions (FANBOYS) in your writing.
In Maths, we have recently covered fractions and counting in 10ths. Click on the link below and complete the fraction matcher game. This will not only help you make sense of fractions, but you will have some fun doing it too. Enjoy!
We have been learning about all sorts of plants in topic this week. Go to your garden at home and see if you can collect a few examples of different leaves. It might be difficult in this snow, but its worth a try. You might be surprised at what you can find. Have fun!
Yesterday we started to look at Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and we thought about some super vocabulary choices to get us in the mood for writing!
Can you go through books, junk mail, newspapers or magazines and find some great vocabulary - especially words which are new to you or could be new to others. Write them down and bring them in to share. Don't forget to find the definition of them and bring that it with you words too. You need to have at least 5 great words.
In your science you have been learning about circuits. Please make a list of items in your home that
- make sound (sound energy)
- produce light (sound energy)
- give out warmth (heat energy)
- move (kinetic energy)
However, they need to use electricity in order to do these things as this is what your science unit is about.
Remember Picasso class - reading, spelling and times tables should be done at least 4 times a week and initialled by an adult. You could all catch up on this over the long weekend before I check diaries again next week.
And finally - play in the snow (safely)!

Using the poem structure write an alternative ending to the poem, where poor Bess doesn’t die!
Clip-Clop the hooves did echo in the frosty night.

He rose up from his stirrups and cut her ropes in a single stroke.
The Highwayman claimed his loved one, his beautiful faithful loved one,
His faithful loved one who waited with a red love knot in her hair.
