We're going to answer some VIPERS questions about the first part of chapter 11 today. You may want to watch the video of me reading this from last Thursday back or read it again in your own copy of The Boy at the Back of the Class. Then, answer the questions on the sheet below. You can print off the sheet to write on or just write the answers out in a lined exercise book.
Then, finish chapter 11 before tomorrow's lesson.
Our next piece of writing will be diary entries from the point of view of a fictional (pretend) passenger on the Titanic. Today, we’re going to generate (come up with) ideas for our first two diary entries: the day the person boards the Titanic and a normal day on the Titanic, using our imagination and what we already know about the Titanic. Look carefully through the Ideas Sheet below. First, you will need to create a passenger who could have been on the Titanic. Then, using the things to think about lists and the FANTASTICS symbols, fill in the two boxes. You can look back at our history learning if you're struggling to imagine what being on the Titanic would have been like or use these websites: https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/history/titanic/
You can print out the sheet or just write your ideas in your lined exercise book.
In maths today, we're going to look at converting fractions to percentages using multiplication to help us. Watch the video here https://vimeo.com/492449530
and then complete the sheet below. Like last week, you may need to watch the video more than once and you will need to watch the video. Remember, if you're struggling, try and do the first page of the sheet. You can also find the answer sheet below to mark once you're finished. If you'd like to challenge yourself, there's a challenge sheet below. When you're finished, check your work with the answer sheet below.
