Good morning everyone, I am excited to have our class call later. See you all soon.

Maths

Today in maths we will be looking at capacity. Join the live lesson at 11am on Google Classroom.

Capacity means the ability to hold or contain things.

Here are today’s activity sheets.

In English today we are going to be looking at letters. When we want to persuade someone to do something for us, we may wish to write them a letter.

Have you ever sent a letter?

Who was it to?

What was it about?

The last letter I sent was to Santa and it was my Christmas list. In that letter I was very persuasive and I was able to get the present I really wanted, a JML Nicer Dicer!

Last week we looked at these features of persuasive writing, rhetorical questions, use of adjectives for description, conjunctions to join sentences and imperative verbs.

Today we are going to see if we can spot those features in a persuasive text.

Extra Mild: Careful on the Road!

Mild: Spooky Story

Spicy/Hot – Can you spot and underline or highlight these different features.

Imperative Verbs

Conjunctions

Stilling Time

Today I would like you to squeeze all the muscles in your arms and hold it for 10 seconds and then release.

How did hat feel?

Now try to squeeze all the muscles in your legs and hold it for 10 seconds and then release.

How did that feel?

And finally. squeeze all the muscles in your whole body for 10 seconds and release.

How did that feel?

Science

Watch this video to see how reflective surfaces are used for safety.

While you are watching, think about:

  • What does it look like if a material reflects light well?
  • Which colours do you think reflect most light?
  • What are reflective materials useful for?

 

Some surfaces and materials reflect light well. Other materials do not reflect light well.

Reflective surfaces and materials can be very useful:

Reflective strips on coats or bags mean you can be seen at night. They are also useful for fire-fighters or builders who may work in a dark and dangerous environment.

‘Cat’s Eyes’ help drivers see the road by reflecting light from headlamps.

Mirrors let us see ourselves, and are also useful in cars, to allow drivers to see behind them.

Retro-reflectors are used for road signs so that drivers can see the signs from their car.

Can you think of any other uses?

Today’s activity.

The Brilliant Bags Company want you to help them choose the best material for the reflective strip.

Look at the different materials you have around your home.

Which material do you think will be best for the bag? Write your prediction on your Testing Reflective Materials Activity Sheet.

You will need to test the different materials to see how reflective they are.

In order to test the materials, you will need to make a reflection tester.

Attach a piece of white card to a torch:

1.Cut a hole in the centre of the card and push the torch through so that the card fits snugly around the torch without you having to hold it.
2.Shine the torch at the material you are testing.

If the material reflects light well, you will see the reflected light shine through the white card and light it up.
