SCIENCE

Today we are going to be investigating materials and their properties.

A material is any substance that has a name. For example, chalk paper, wood, iron, clay.

The property of a material is something about it that we can measure, see or feel. Materials have different properties that make them useful for different jobs.

Click here to visit BBC Bitesize. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z4339j6/articles/zx8hhv4 Find out how to identify materials.

Click on the worksheet  https://www.stem.org.uk/sites/default/files/preview/elibrary-resources/legacy_files_migrated/35871-Y5MaterialsAndTheirProperties.pdf.jpg

Draw the table in your book and then complete questions one and two.

LITERACY

Vocabulary Work

1. Listen again to the story of the Paper Bag Princes and think about the character of the dragon. How would you describe him?

 Think of as many adjectives as you can. I will start you off . I think the dragon is definitely

conceited

This means he is excessively proud of himself.

 

2. Now consider the character of Elizabeth. Write as many adjectives as you can to describe her. I think Elizabeth is definitely

gutsy

This means she shows courage, determination and spirit.

 

Have fun!

ART

As you have been busy describing the dragon in the story, I thought you might be inspired to press on the link and follow the tutorial for how to tame a dragon. OOPS! That's another story entirely. I meant to say ... how to DRAW a dragon. It involves lots of concentration and patience; find a quiet spot and enjoy.

LITERACY

Direct Speech

Think about how the story of the Paper Bag Princess ends. It is a surprise ending. I would like you to imagine the conversation that Elizabeth and Ronald have when Elizabeth turns up to rescue him. Please write some dialogue between the two characters. What might they say to each other. Make their conversation sound natural and don't forget to use all the necessary speech punctuation. Importantly, don't forget to paragraph (start a new line when someone new speaks).

 

My apologies class I didn't include a link for The Paper bag Princess that included illustrations. As we have discussed, illustrations are important. Pictures can help us infer. Click on the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0lNFZtpq7A&t=3s
