Each week you are also to learn five words that you have selected yourself with the spelling rule taught on Mondays. These will not be on spelling city. Instead, practise the rule making your words using active strategies (writing words on a partners back to guess, make with pasta or playdoh, rainbow writing, cheerleading the words etc…). You do not hand evidence of this in to school. It should be short, fun and engaging. You will complete a short dictation which uses words of a similar difficulty, though not the 5 specific words, which follow the spelling rule on Fridays.

Numeracy – Complete your group’s quiz, on teams.

Other – Make It Happen Competition. You have now had two weeks to investigate, consider and refine your app ideas and should now complete the application form. There will be winners in several categories. Winners will have the chance to make their app!

Access East Renfrewshire’s Libraries Website and use the class login . When you first open the link select Children’s > School Children > Homework and this will allow you to open the link to the Britannica Library site which East Renfrewshire libraries pay to access. This allows you to open more information than on the Britannica website, and ensures your search is safer than on google.  You are also able to access ebooks and audiobooks through the Borrowbox link on the ERC Libraries website.

LIBRARY BRITANNICA LOGIN

You are going to research one of the eight planets of our solar system. You have to display the information you find in an interesting and creative way.

You must include:

  • The name of the planet: Does its name have any meaning?
  • How the planet was discovered.
  • The planet’s distance from the sun. What size is the planet? Can you compare this to something else to help us imagine its size?
  • The length of the planet’s days and years.
  • The average temperature on the planet. Does it have seasons?
  • Which materials the planet is predominantly made from.
  • A description of the planets appearance, especially any interesting features.
  • Information about moons orbiting the planet. If there are any can you include some more information, for example: how many, when were they discovered, do they have names, are they similar to the planet they orbit?

Make your display as exciting and interactive as you can. You will present your findings to groups on Friday the 14th of February so DO NOT FORGET TO BRING YOUR DISPLAY WITH YOU. Have fun!

  • You can also include other information you discover! (e.g. How much does the average person weigh on the planet (find out about its gravitational pull)? Have we sent any probes, satellites or rovers to the planet?)

Please bring in a printed photograph of your family by Wednesday the 5th of February. Some of these will be used in a wall display and not returned until the end of term. The rest will be used next week, and kept in jotters for future French work discussing our families and describing appearance and clothing.

Thank you!

Mrs Horne
