LO: To explore what area is

This is a revision lesson from last year when you learnt about finding the area of a shape. There is an opportunity for you to work practically in the lesson if you have any 'sticky notes' at home. Do not worry if you don't just miss out those questions. You will need to use the mathematical symbols of comparison in the lesson, which you have also worked with before. These are < , > and = . In the examples below it shows us which symbol is which. Look carefully at them it shows you that 1 is less than 3 or 1 < 3; 2 equals (or is the same as 2); 3 is greater the 1 or 3 > 1.


Mathematical symbols use for comparison

LO: To plan the opening of an explanation text.

In this lesson, we will create a plan for our introduction and opening paragraph. Below there are two template plans - one for the introduction and one for the growing process (first paragraph) which you can either print, or copy. The teacher talks you through the plans in the video step by step. There is also a document with brief notes about the complete chocolate making process if you need to refresh your memory.

L.O. To create a poster of leisure activities.

Yesterday you were asked to create a set of house rules that included one on the amount of screen time you could have as part of your leisure activities. Today, we would like you to build on that and think about all the other leisure activities that you could do that do not involve watching a screen. We would like you to create a bright, colourful poster of at least 10 of these activities so that when you are bored, you can check out the poster to remind you of what you could do. Draw pictures on your poster and write the key words to help remind you of the activity

Here are some ideas you could include:   colour a picture; create your own doodle; play a board or a card game; make a game board or a card game; carry out a random act of kindness; write someone a letter or  make a card for someone to say thank you; play outside if you have a garden or go for a walk if your adult is free to go with you; design a set of clothes for yourself. There are lots of things you can do! Let's share some of your fantastic ideas in the Teams Meeting this afternoon.
