Click on Number Bonds and play both of the decimal games. Of course, you can play some other games as well if you wish.smiley

 

LITERACY

In 1981 Chris Van Allsberg wrote a book called Jumanji. In the story, a brother and sister discover a game that turns fiction into real life. Whatever square you land on in the game, brings a new challenge to overcome. Worst still, the challenge becomes a reality for everyone around.

The book was made into a movie. Some of you may have seen it. Here is a link to the original movie trailer for Jumanji in 1995. You can see the consequences of playing the game!

Check with an adult that it's ok for you to watch.

 

Maria Richards has written a short story that follows the same plot idea as Jumanji.  Your task for today is to read through the text. Read it several times until you are familiar with it. Then, with great expression, read the story to a member of your family.

 

This is the story

SCIENCE

Today, I would like you to watch two  video clips about reversible and irreversible changes.

 

In an irreversible change, a material turns into a completely new and different material. The new material cannot be changed back into what it was before. For instance, wood and paper burn to ash.

In a reversible change a material turns into something that looks and feels different, but it isn't changed forever. The material can be changed back so it looks and feels the same as it did before.

 

Click here and watch  BBC Bitesize clips about irreversible and reversible changes. Play the game at the end.

 

In your books, sort the list below into reversible and irreversible changes

 

chocolate melting

bread toasting

candle burning

wood burning

biscuits baking

butter melting

potatoes boiling

puddle evaporating

ice melting.

 

Can you list anymore?

LITERACY

Sentence  Challenge

Here are some words that appear in the story we looked at yesterday.

 

streaked

resurgence

ferocity

 

'rain streaked the classroom window panes'

To streak along - to move rapidly

 

'a resurgence of the game slap'

A resurgence - something that returns or starts again after disappearing for a while

 

'the ferocity of a wild beast'

Ferocity - extremely fierce (fierce = strong, powerful, violent or frightening)

 

Take each word and put them into a sentence. How many sentences can you create?

 

SCIENCE

Today we are thinking about separating mixtures of materials.

SIEVING is a way of separating big solid bits from smaller solid bits.

This is a gardener's riddle. It is useful for separating stones from the soil.

 

This sieve can remove lumps from flour.

 

FILTERING  is a way of separating solid bits from a liquid.

A colander can separate spaghetti from boiling water.

 

A tea strainer keeps the tea leaves out of the cup of tea.

 

Filter paper can be used to separate very fine solids that are mixed with a liquid like water. The solids are not dissolved in the water and can't pass through the paper. Coffee is being filtered in this picture.

 

ASK YOUR PARENTS IF YOU CAN DO SOME SIEVING AND FILTERING AT HOME. PERHAPS HELP PREPARE SOME FOOD.

Adding decimals - crossing the whole

 

LITERACY

Please read through 'The Game' again. Think about what you like and dislike about the story. Did anything surprise you? Did anything puzzle you? Do you have any questions.

 

Please present your thoughts like this in your book.

 

                                                   

 

SCIENCE

Let's think again about how to separate mixtures of materials.

 

If solids are small enough to pass through the filter paper, we have a problem. How can we separate them?

 

Think about a salt solution.     Salt is soluble. It dissolves. We can't see it but we know it hasn't disappeared. We can taste the salt in the water. Ugh! Not recommended.

 

CAN WE GET THE SALT BACK AGAIN? HOW CAN WE SEPARATE THE SALT FROM THE WATER?

Some of you might have guessed. If you heat a salt solution, the water evaporates leaving the salt behind.

Please write a brief report explaining what has happened in the video.

SCIENCE Ask your parents if you can try this experiment.
