Reading: Rushing Rivers

It's time for your second installment of Rush River. Follow the link and click on Lesson 2: To answer questions on a non-fiction text (part 1)


Writing: Planning

We have finished our sentence stacking sessions on The Nowhere Emporium. Well done! You have kept in touch with the skills taught in class.


Now it is time for you to plan the next 3 plot points independently. You decide what happens next, but I have created a planning sheet linked below with prompts and suggested lenses to use (very similar to the one we used for Coming Home - the robin). On the same document on the 2nd page, I have outlined possible ideas for you to use if you want.


Also linked below is the Writing Rainbow of lenses, which you will need in order to decide which lenses to focus on for Plot Point 13. Minimum of 3 lenses per plot point. 


Spend today's writing time to gather ideas and add them to the planning sheet. Use a thesaurus if you have one, or use the internet as your thesaurus. The whole page should be filled with marvellous, well-chosen ideas. enlightened


Once you have done this, complete the storyboard. Draw a picture in the top box with a short explanation of what's happening in this part of your story underneath. DO NOT WRITE YOUR STORY IN THESE BOXES. 


The whole Year 5 team are very much looking forward to seeing your ideas! Make them spectacular! laugh


Today we're getting straight into the learning! Watch the video below before you start the worksheet (below); it should help you with answering the questions for today.

Remember, you can pause and re-watch the video as many times as you like!

Length- Imperial and Metric Units

Note for Challenge 3:

A diameter is the distance from one side of an object (a circle) to the other. This distance must pass through the centre point.

Topic: Extreme Earth

Today we are going to be looking at volcanoes! Below, there is a PowerPoint filled with interesting facts and videos for you to look at.

This should help you complete the Match-the-Facts activity.

Now, here is a blank outline of a volcano, can you label it correctly? All the key-words are underneath the picture to help.

Try and complete this without looking at the PowerPoint to see how much you have learned!


Can you guess what type of volcano is shown in your labelled diagram? Why do you think this? 

There are no correct answers, just good reasons that support your decision!
