Good morning Oak Class!
I hope you all slept well. If you’re not already planning to, please start your day with the Joe Wicks work out. I’ll be doing it at school so it’ll be like we’re doing it together. How wonderful it’d be if the whole of Oak Class did it! In case you miss the daily ones live, you can find them later on YouTube (this was Tuesday’s but try to do today’s live if you can):
Yesterday, you began planning your TV news report about the Tempest off the coast of Milan. Remember, this should be written as though you are the reporter live at the scene. Today, use your plan to write up the report, remembering to edit and improve as you go. Use a dictionary and thesaurus; you can find online ones if you’ve not got them at home. You can print this template off to use if you wish or just write in your book:
- Try to include the full range of punctuation – ! ? , . “” () – ; : – (where appropriate)
- Include direct speech with the correct pucntuation when you quote your eye-witnesses
- Describe the setting and atmosphere
- Select appropriate vocabulary and grammatical structures, e.g. using contracted forms in dialogue; using passive verbs to affect how information is presented; using modal verbs to suggest degrees of possibility
- Use a range of devices to build cohesion (e.g. conjunctions, adverbials of time and place, pronouns, synonyms) within and across paragraphs
- Use verb tenses consistently and correctly throughout your writing
Start with the White Rose Maths Hub Problem of the Day every day using this link:
LI – To interpret and construct pie charts.
Look at the examples on p.140 and then select which section(s) to complete in your work book. Answers will be posted later. Please click the link below to access the pages and if possible/if it helps, print them out. You will only be able to actually construct pie charts if you have a protractor at home so if not, just do the interpreting questions.
Topic – Geography Focus
I’ve set you a task on Purple Mash based on River Features. Please match each of the features of a river to the correct picture. As we’ve already done some learning about this, I’d also like you to write a definition for each of the features. You can look online for help with this if you need it.
Yoga for the classroom (or living room 😉
Have a lovely day – see you all tomorrow!
thanks for every thing Mrs Fitz
missing every one hope to see you all soon
You’re welcome. It was so lovely seeing you yesterday! Hope you enjoy the work set – especially tomorrow’s English 😉
I’m missing everyone too Arianna.
I hope we see each other again soon.
I don’t really get question 3 on C xx
If you have a look at the examples on p.140 and then apply what it says there I’m pretty sure you’ll get it. You need to find the proportion for each amount of books by expressing it as a fraction, e.g. fiction 1350/3000. Then put this into its most simple form = 9/20. Do this for all four categories of books and you’ll end up with four simplified fractions. Once you’ve got these you need to work out the size of the angle in the pie to represent the four types of books by dividing 360 by the denominator (so for the fiction books 360 divided by 20 = 18 and then multiply this by 9 because the simplified fraction was 9/20. This will give you Fiction books = 162 degrees. Repeat this for all four categories of books so that you end up with an angle size for all four categories. You can check you’re correct by adding up the four angles. They should total 360 degrees. Hope that makes sense – not very easy to explain in text! Look at the examples – I’m sure they’ll help.

I really enjoyed the lunge jumps and the up and down planks from today.
Which move has been your favourite?
Hi everybody ✋?
On the purple mash maths graph activity on the last 2 questions it could be any of the 3 answers.
Hello Oak Class – hope you are able to spend some time outside looking at how nature is bursting into life and see just how beautiful it is. I’m missing you all but it is good to see your comments and questions on here. Take care Mrs Thomas
We’ve had a great day here. David loved the geography task and he’s been writing his news item script for hours! Thanks for the daily tasks.
That’s so good to hear Emma! He was already the class expert on rivers so I can only imagine his purple mash work is fantastic! I’ll check it out now. Take care and best wishes to all of you!
