Week Beginning 22nd June
This week you will be finishing off your work from last week by classifying quadrilaterals, and then you will be learning about lines of symmetry from Tuesday.
For the lessons on symmetry a little mirror would be very useful. It is also a good idea to cut paper in the shape you need to draw, and then use the mirror to check what it would look like on the other side of the line of symmetry.
There is an answer sheet for the worksheets.
Watch the YouTube clip about classifying quadrilaterals then have a go at the worksheet.
There is also a PowerPoint presentation that you could look at and a useful poster that explains the features of different types of quadrilateral to help you identify them.
Worksheet 4 – Classifying quadrilaterals.
Start by watching the YouTube video to refresh your memories about lines of symmetry.
Worksheet 5 – Identifying symmetrical figures.
Worksheet 6 – Drawing lines of symmetry.
Watch the Oak Academy video, from 5 mins 35 secs – 14 mins 13 secs then try worksheet 7.
Worksheet 7 – Completing symmetrical figures.
Challenge – continue to watch the Oak Academy video, from 18 mins 32 secs – 21 mins 41 secs. Then try the challenge, the sheet is attached as a PDF document.
Worksheet 9 – Completing symmetrical figures. We have not forgotten about Worksheet 8! It is very similar to worksheet 9 so we are not doing it.
Extension – you need a partner to work with for this activity. Maybe an adult, an older sibling or even a friend on a video call. Ask your grown up first though! Look at the PowerPoint presentation and then try the grid activity. If you are asking someone who does not live in your house to do this activity you will have to get creative – maybe ask your grown up to email/text them a photograph of your grid so they can complete it. If you don’t have anyone to ask, you can do all of the work yourself!
MyMaths – Lines and quadrilaterals. A recap of Monday’s lesson.
For topic this week we want you to get creative and arty. Carrying on with our sports topic, we want you to create your own art piece which is sport themed.Choose your favourite sport and then make a piece of art that represents that sport. You could focus the art piece on a scene of your sport being played or a focus on the equipment for example a football. You can create the art piece in any way you want, you might want to sketch, paint, make a collage or make a model, you can use what ever resources you have available at home. There is a document attached with some sport art examples to help give you inspiration. Be creative as you want!
We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
Watch the video clip and create a story mountain of what happens using the story mountain template.
Character development: In the clip we see three characters, but we don’t know much about them! We need you to mindmap ideas for what the characters are like. We already know their appearance, so you need to come up with their personalities, names, what they are doing and why. Make sure you also include their feelings.
Using your character mindmaps, write a paragraph from the point of view of the smaller alien. Remember to include their thoughts and feelings. You may want to use this starter:
My spaceship exam was going so well! I had aced the flying, steering and orbiting parts, now I just needed to pass the abduction test...
Using your character mindmaps, write a paragraph from the point of view of the bigger alien. Remember to include their thoughts and feelings. You may want to use this starter:
My chair was very uncomfortable as I sat, silently watching the poor candidate flailing around...
Using your character mindmap, write a paragraph from the point of view of the man when he wakes up. Remember to include his thoughts and feelings. You may want to use this starter:
A cool breeze woke me up; had I left the window open? Reluctantly, I opened my eyes...
