Maths

Today in maths, we'll be looking at the second part of the worksheet from yesterday on comparing and ordering fractions that are less than 1.

Remember our key vocabulary: common denominator and common numerator.

Watch the video to help you with today's work.

English

Today in English, we'll begin writing our Arctic inspired poems. Below is an example from last year for you to magpie ideas from. 

 

You are going to write 3 paragraphs with 4 lines in each. Be sure to include all of the features you look at last week including similes, metaphors, personification, onomatopoeia and alliteration. Try your hardest to use the rhyming words you thought about at the end of lines two and four!

 

EXAMPLE:

Down in the polar region, 

Fantastic foxes jump up in the air

On snow as white as clouds

Digging in it is a polar bear.

 

As you look up in the white blanket sky

The dancing Northern Lights,

Shimmer, whisper and glisten, 

During the cold winter nights.

 

As the melting monstrosity goes on, 

Perfect pups play

But they still need to know, 

The snow will melt everyday.

 

Rhyming words

Alliteration

Metaphors

Similes

Personification

RE

In RE, we will be learning about the Islam holy book.

Like many religions, Islam has a Holy Book called the Qur'an. Muslims believe it to be God's words, spoken to the Angel Gabriel and passed on to the Holy Prophet Muhammad. There is only one version of the Qur'an and it was written in Arabic. Muslims believe that it has not changed at all since it was first written.

Watch the videos below to find out more information about the Muslim Holy Book.

Muslims use the Qur'an as a guide for how to live their lives.

 

Your task today is to come up with 5 rules that you think would help people to live good lives. Remember, rules that benefit only you might make everyone else unhappy. That won't lead to a good place to live. Consider creating rules that would be for the good of everybody, so that every person can have a better life, rather than just a few. 

 

When you have decided on your 5 rules, write them in your best handwriting on the bordered paper in your packs. You  may  illustrate your work too, if you wish.
