Hello Mozart Class
I can’t wait to welcome you back to school tomorrow and hear all about your half term adventures. I thought I would remind you that we start the term off with swimming first thing tomorrow morning. Don’t forget to bring your swimming kit including a hat (if you have one) and a towel. You will need a coat to walk to the pool and back again.
See you tomorrow!
This week we have been watching tutorial videos about how to wear a saree. We had a set of instructions to read and follow to dress Lara in a saree. Our next challenge was to write our own version. We had to think about imperative verbs we might use – hold, pass, tuck, fold, drape. We also talked about using time connectives – first, next, after that, finally.
L.O: To present a set of instructions
We have been looking at instruction writing this week. Present your own set of instructions – eg, shoe laces, making a sandwich, playing a game.
You can write them, make a PowerPoint or record them.
Here are some of the other words we found when we investigated the rule…
Can you think of any other words that fit the rule?
We have been very impressed by the creativity of all the children with their times tables key skills task. The children have enjoyed sharing their activities and giving tips for possible improvements.
Special mentions go to…
Ollie for his prototyping, he tested and adjusted his game with Dad.
Max, who persevered when playing his game, even though he kept landing on the snakes!
Ash who produced a fantastic online scratch game.
Lara who gave a great explanation of the objective of her game.
Joe, who produced a very thoughtful crossword that gave a great challenge to Stefan to solve.
Well done Mozart!
Thank you for an amazing response to the blog last week. We were very impressed by some of the ideas around the sunset scene. It was great to see that children who were unable to access the blog, had recorded their ideas in their key skills book. Keep up the great work at home Mozart!
L.O: To rehearse times table facts
Design an activity to help your classmates practise their times tables facts. You need to address the facts from your own times tables target. Check your prototype to develop your final product.
In class, we have discussed different approaches and outcomes. Ideas included making a scratch game, pairs, bingo, a maze, a quiz… We will be testing and evaluating the activities in class next week. If you need any resources, please just come and ask!
