Our final day of Algebra today!
This week's alternative Maths challenge
Our final English lesson of the week starts on slide 49 and focuses on Chapter 7. We will learn how Kensuke looks after Michael after his horrifying jellyfish sting incident. While he is recuperating, Michael and Kensuke begin to develop a closer bond. Your tasks focus on that relationship and include using the text to draw a picture of Kensuke's cave. Then, we take a step back and look at how Japan was involved in World War 2 and read about reports of Japanese soldiers who hid for 30 years, not realising that World War 2 had ended. Your final task is to reflect on this.
This activity remains available as an alternative activity until next Wednesday. This is more investigation based and will suit those looking for a different kind of challenge.
Today's work focuses on Japan and includes an activity around the Olympics which were due to be hosted in Tokyo this summer and a comprehension and SPaG activity based on an event from the 1968 Olympics. I have chosen this activity as it is topical in the light of the Black Lives Matter movement. For the athletes involved in the podium protest, their sporting careers were effectively ended. The activity pack Podium Protest is a separate link, but it IS part of your work . You may not be able to type directly onto that pack. It includes a comprehension and useful linked SPaG. You DO NOT have to do the Vocab 1 & Vocab 2 activities as we are covering vocab in our novel study.
Today we have a brand new challenge. This Maths investigation can be chosen instead of the usual format Maths if you prefer.
The full week is now here. Sorry about the delay. Slides 28 -46. Weather forecast today is for storms and rain, so I have stepped back from the book and our focus diverts for the next two days to Japan. The Haiku task is the main task but there is a design and origami task too. *** Weather forecast has changed! Since today and tomorrow's work is abt Japan rather than Kensuke, you could choose to do tomorrow's work today and today's arty work in tomorrow's rain.
Two step equations today
It's your final day for this inquiry-led Maths project for those who wanted a change from the normal format.
Today we focus on Chapter 6 and you will be learning some Japanese! There are a few short burst tasks followed by your main task which is writing a short recount from the perspective of Kensuke. In the book, the same incident is retold by Michael so it will be interesting to see how differently, Kensuke would view the incident. On the powerpoint, you are looking at slides 11 - 27 - this includes marking yesterday's comprehension.
We are continuing with Algebra this week. The alternative Jurassic World inquiry project ends on Wednesday.
We continue with Kensuke's Kingdom. Today's main task is a diary extract. The powerpoint and transition booklet only include today's work at the moment. Please open powerpoint with each of the tasks explained, together with how long you should spend on each task. The rest will be uploaded ready for tomorrow. Please save the transition booklet under your name. In order to get full functionality of the powerpoint, please select VIEW on top toolbar and then slideshow from beginning.
