Thursday 7th January
Here are today's lessons and activities.
You can use the timetable on the previous pages as a guide for how long to spend on each activity, although some may be shorter or longer depending on the content.
Have a go at translating the position of these shapes according to the instructions.
Start with one corner of the shape and use the grid to move it to the correct new position. Then repeat with all other corners until you have drawn the new shape in position.
Remember your new shape should be exactly the same size as the old one but just in a different position on the grid.
Using the power point below, complete the homophones activity for Thursday.
Remember that homophones are words that sound the same but have a different spelling and meaning.
Read the sentences carefully and decide which homophone best fits in the sentence. You may want to use a dictionary or online word search to help.
Imagine you are one of the characters from the Railway Children. You might choose to be Roberta, Phyllis, Peter or someone else.
As your chosen character, write a diary entry to explain a key event in the story so far. You might choose to write about one of the events below:
- The day they moved to the countryside for the first time
- When they discovered the excitement of the railway
- The events of the landslide on the track where the children had to stop the train with their red flags
- Receiving medals as a reward for their actions after the landslide on the railway line
- The day they discover the Russian gentleman at the train station
Think about how you can begin your diary entry. Remember to write in first person using 'I', 'me' or 'my'. How can you include the thoughts and feelings of the character you have chosen? What do you need to include at the end of your diary?
