Daily tasks 26/03/2020

Good morning. P6M Bishopton Primary 2019_20 I hope you are keeping well. Remember to get out and play in the garden when you can as it is important to stay active. This is why I have started your day with a work out every day.

The tasks for today are:

  • P.E- Again I have asked Joe Wicks to step in and do a little workout. He will be live from 9:00am on this link. https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1 Please wear appropriate clothes for P.E. (You will be roasting in that onsie!)

If the link doesn’t work then search for youtube and from there look for the body coach tv.

  • Starter Spelling– Please complete an active spelling task.
  • Literacy– Back by popular demand is the inspired by story. This is your chance to impress with how many grammar tricks you can use to excite readers. There is no maximum for words but I think that you will need at least 200 words to develop your story.
  • Maths- A little recap on volume, measure and weight today.
  • Project- Day Four is creating your powerpoint to celebrate your chosen topic. Double check the assignment for details.

Instructions

You are so lucky!

 

I am so excited for this task as I know just how good a group of Primary 6 writers that we are blessed with.

I’m taking the shackles off. I’m only going to give you one instruction.

 

  1. Write from something that you know!

What I mean by this is think of the stories that you have grown up with. We are lucky to be surrounded by quality literature in Bishopton Primary School. Take elements of a story that you love and see if you can create a new tale.

It could be the missing pages from the Diary of a Wimpy Kids, or forgotten tales from Hogswarts, or even Olaf vs Summer (aka Not So Frozen!).

 

Now this can be typed or handwritten. We only ask that you remember all of those previous writing lessons.

Can I see paragraphs, hyperbole, metaphors, alliteration, personification, correct punctuation… don’t waste an opportunity to add exuberant, vibrant vocabulary.

 

Really enjoy the process of creating something.

 

A very jealous,

 

Mr M

 

p.s your teachers are on hand to support your creations so run those ideas past us and ask if you need reminding of anything.

Maths – Volume

Volume – is a measurement of how much space is taken up by a 3 dimensional (3D) shape.

The units used in measuring liquid volumes are millilitres and litres.

 

Have a look at the website below to support your understanding of Volume.

Please complete the textbook pages which are linked below.

 

I would also like you to log into SumDog and play for at least 20minutes. I will be playing along with you if I can!

Friction Investigation

Due tomorrow at 11:59 PM

Instructions

Hello curious minds,

 

Ever wondered why the tyre on your bike slows down if you are not pedalling. Or why it is harder to slow down when running in new trainers?

Well today you get to indulge your curiosity. I would like you to watch this video on what friction is and then with your parents permission you may want to try one of the experiments yourself.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-design-and-technology-ks2-investigating-friction/z6vb47h

After that I would like you to complete the attached worksheet and then hand it in to this assignment.

 

Happy experimenting,
