As many of you have seen in the news, the government has helped to create a great resource on Bitesize.
It will have a variety of different lessons with lots of great resources and lots of celebrities helping in their own respective fields. I am happy if you want to follow this instead of the work I will be putting on separately.
-I want to highlight these pieces of work, if you would rather carry out the work on Bitesize for that particular day, that is absolutely fine.
Another resource is below:
The Oak Academy is a resource created by the government similar to BBC Bitesize.
It has daily lessons and has a teacher presenting the lesson and a variety of resources, If you have access to it, it's certainly a good resource to help!
Hope it helps,
Linked to previous work from this week:
The above task links to the game you played yesterday, you will become a detective once again and fill in the information that you need to.
This will continue to build each day and will be more helpful as the week goes on.
For the rest of the week, in our English lessons, you will be a detective!
Whilst playing the game, you have the opportunity to investigate clues, talk to characters and find out what has happened! I advise you to take notes where you can, I also imagine that it would be easier to do this on a computer.
Take notes from the interviews you watch and when reporting writing they must make a decision on how to keep a record of the data they gather, which pieces of information are relevant, which are red herrings, which information they still have to find out.
This is a complex skill, requiring assimilation of data to formulate a pertinent questions. Not everything will be provided within the game, and the children could be asked to make a decision on what else they would like to know. Thanks to Red Herring Games, all the character background stories are available as well attached.
As the mystery progresses children or teams of children will start to try and work out who did what. People within the teams may have different ideas and without realising they will take turns to pitch these ideas to the group, backing up their theories.
More information will follow and activities linked to this per day this week.
You can practice these in any way you would like, try to get someone to test you!
Use them in a sentence, create a crossword, look them in up in a dictionary etc.
-Please make sure you are reading every day! It is absolutely vital that you do this.
