67 Funny Motivational Memes to Inspire Success in 2020 | Funny motivational  memes, Motivational memes, Funny positive memes

Morning everyone! 

You only have one more week of online learning before we are all back together! You have all worked so hard and have produced some amazing work that you should be really proud of! Keep it up for 5 more days- I know you can do it :)

As we have finished the London Eye Mystery, I have picked up from where Mrs Wooliscroft left off with The boy at the back of the room. I have also uploaded the text with the video so you can follow as I am reading. 

Priority 1- Maths, Guided reading and writing 

Priority 2- Afternoon challenge 

Priority 3- Well-being, mental arithmetic and story time.

Have a great day. Please email your work to me on 





L.O- To understand how to use my knowledge of triangles to find missing angles.

Success Criteria:

1. I can identify different triangles based on their properties  

2. I can calculate unknown angles in triangles


Please watch the tutorial to learn about the different types of triangles and how to calculate missing angles.



 If you need additional support, please watch this video.



The challenges today all cover the same learning as you will need to identify the type of triangle and then calculate the missing angle. However, they become more challenging based on the calculations.

Green- angles in multiples of 10

Orange- angles in multiples of 5

Red- angles in multiples of 1

Additional support- I have uploaded a types of triangles support sheet to help you when deciding what type of triangle it is.

Extension: Identify angles using knowledge of triangles and angles on a straight line.


Catch-up zoom

I’m looking forward to seeing you all on zoom. This is a chance for you to see all of your friends and ask any questions about today’s learning. The link for the zoom will have been sent to your parent’s email. Can you please make sure you log in with your name so I know who I am letting into the zoom.

English- Guided reading and writing

L.O: To show my understanding of selecting and organising information on the Arctic and Antarctica (show: applying)

Success criteria:

1) I can select the most important information for my guide, considering what my audience should learn about

2) I can plan the layout and content of my guide

3) I can plan a range of techniques to maintain the readers’ attention


Watch the video clip on the Arctic- Exploring the Arctic for Kids: Arctic Animals and Climates for Children.



Answer the following questions on the video clip: (Focus: summarising)

a) How is the Arctic described in the video?

b) What is it called when A) the sun doesn’t set at all? B) The sun doesn’t rise at all?

c) Summarise the information given on the Aurora in your own words.

d) Summarise the information given on the animals in your own words.



Task: Today you are going to plan your guide to the Arctic and Antarctica.

You will have three English lessons to write your actual guide (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday)


Green Challenge: In your guide plan to include at least: both the geographical features of the Arctic and Antarctica and about at least one polar explorer of your choice.

Orange Challenge: In your guide plan to include at least: An introduction to your guide, the similarities and difference between the Arctic and Antarctica, at least two polar explorers and another area of your choice.

Red Challenge: In your guide, plan to include: a detailed introduction, an extensive account of what you have learnt about the Arctic and Antarctica, focusing on the geographic features-comparing and contrasting them, historical expeditions, what is happening currently happening there-including the impact of climate change. You can also include an area of your choice if you wish.


When doing this task, planning your guide, remember to:

· Think about what it is important for your audience to know in each section.

· Consider the order in which you want to present this information

· Think about where you can include: headings, sub-headings, rhetorical questions

· Plan where you are going to include diagrams, pictures and maps to illustrate your points and what they are going to look like

· Decide what you want the overall look of your guide to be-remember to aim high because you will have two sessions to create your guide


Watch the tutorial to help you create a plan for your guide.

Extension: Reflect on how well you feel you have done planning your guide and what changes you could make when creating your real guide. Watch the tutorial to learn how to reflect on a piece of work.
