Monday 20th April
This week you will be completing activities based around Roman texts. Today have a read of one of these Roman stories:
- The Story of Romulus and Remus - Mild
- The Story of Romulus and Remus - Hot
- The Story of Romulus and Remus - Spicy
Read through each question and first identify the features you should have included in your stories before Easter: Adjectives and descriptive language; Similes; Metaphors; Personification; Adverbs; Fronted adverbials; Subordinating conjunctions; ‘Show don’t tell’ description. Are there any of these in the story already?!
Once you have done this choose one paragraph from the story and rewrite it to be more exciting! Make sure it includes all the things you hopefully included in your stories. Don't worry, you don't have to rewrite the whole story, just choose one paragraph.
This week and next week you are going to be looking at and learning about using money.
It will be helpful if you have either some real coins (maybe you can borrow these... but make sure you give them back!) or some pretend money that you can use to practice with.
If you can't use real money and you have a printer, print out a few of these to cut out and practice with. If you don't have either, then copy or trace them onto a piece of paper and cut them out to use instead.
First of all today have a look through this sheet and answer the questions on the page. Remember that there 100p in £1.
Then I would like you to simply play shops. Make an imaginary shop of items you can sell. Give them all prices in p. Practice spending your money and working out how much you are spending.
Today you are going to learn about the human digestive system.
First of all using this BBC bitesize link, watch the video and have a go at the little quiz.
Then using the BBC link above, the National Geographical Kids link which you can find here, or any other information you can research, I would like you to carefully draw, trace or print an image of the human body, carefully labeling the important organs needed for digestion inside, writing a sentence or a paragraph, explaining their purpose or why they are important in our bodies.
