  1. Look at the PPT
  2. Do Initial Questions

 

If you found it pretty straight forward. Why not try GOLD (but don’t do it unless you’re super confident!)

 

Again, if you fancy something even trickier, drop me a message and I’ll send some more questions your way.

Back to it! Time to add together mixed fractions. Just concentrate on each step and don’t get frustrated….. you’ve got the skills to do this!

English

Firstly, make sure you can remember the model text. Test yourself to say it quickly. Can you retell it to a family member?

 

Next, take a look through the alternative discussion text for today about how much footballers earn.

 

  • Finally, Can you add to your list of vocab from this text?
  •  
  • What features can you identify that are similar between the model text, the zoos text and this one? List your thoughts in your Home Learning book.

 

Toolkit Analysis

 

Are you starting to identify features that make a good discussion/debate?

 

Update and finalise your toolkit based on what you can see across all of the discussion texts we have studied so far. Use the template below to start your toolkit, and feel free to research ideas online for what makes a good debate!

Firstly, look at the PPT about parenthesis and answer the questions in your Home Learning Book.

 

Next job, highlight the different grammatical features used in the modal text. Use different colours for each. For example, use yellow for fronted adverbials of time, green for parenthesis, red for speech, purple for subordinating conjunctions or pink for relative clauses…… there will be so many more!
