Final virtual assembly of the year for Thursday 23rd July in Class Pages

Week 4 22/6/20 - 26/6/20

Hello again, Class 3. This week, I'd like to start by sharing a news report that was sent in to me:

English

This week, I would like you to invent a creature that is very rare and can only be found in and around Kemsing - the Kemsing lizard. Here are some links to some interesting videos about real lizards:

 

Once you have watched the videos and found out more about real life lizards, I would like you to draw what you think the Kemsing lizard might look like. You can use the template below to help you, or you could draw or paint (or even make a model of) your lizard. 

When you have invented your version of the Kemsing lizard, I would like you to write a description of the lizard. Think carefully about what your lizard looks like and carefully describe it. Here are some technical words that you may want to use in your description:

 

Dewlap - this is the inflatable or extendable flap of skin under a lizard’s neck. Not all species of lizard have this.

Dorsal area - the top of a lizard’s body.

Nuchal Crest - a row of spikes starting large at the base of the head that gets smaller as it moves down to the base of the tail.

Tubercles - these are rounded bumps, commonly found on lizards.

 

 

 

 

 

Ventral area - the underside of a lizard.

 

 

 

Finally, I would like you to come up with a list of questions that people might ask you about your lizard (e.g. what does it eat? How does it protect itself?). When you have a list of questions, I would like you to make a plan for an information book on the Kemsing lizard. You could use each question as a subheading on each page of your book. Most information books also include drawings, diagrams and photos. They start with a contents page and finish with an index and a glossary.

 

Next week's task will be to create an information book on the Kemsing lizard, using the plan that you have come up with.

For your SPAG challenge this week, here is the 2nd part of the Preposition challenge:

And here are the answers:

Maths

This week focuses on consolidating written multiplication and division strategies, securing understanding of the relation between division and fractions, and moving to finding tenths of amounts. I have allocated a variety of resources to use for this through Abacus. You will need to follow the link below to log in and access these resources:

Below is a screen shot of the resources that I have allocated this week. The allocated resources have been ticked.

Arty Topic Type Stuff

I would like you to sort these statements into 2 groups:

  • Said by a scientist.
  • Said by an eye witness.

 

Using these statements to help you, can you produce a news report about a volcanic eruption? It could be a newspaper article, or a TV news report.
