Good morning everyone!

I hope you are all looking forward to another day of fantastic learning!  

I am really looking forward to seeing you all on zoom. We won't have an emoji quiz today as I would still like to hear from you all about what you got up to in the half term term. Although we might have time for a quick scavenger hunt.

Priority 1- Maths and English (guided reading and writing)

Priority 2- Afternoon challenge

Priorty 3- Well-being, daily storytime and TT rockstars 

If you have any questions please bring them to the zoom or email me. 

Please email your work to fourelmsheadofschool@inspirefederation.co.uk.

Have a lovely day!

Time

Learning

9:00-10:00

Maths

L.O- To understand how to calculate missing angles where they meet at a point

Success criteria

1. I can explain that angles at a point total 360°

2. I can calculate the total of given angles

3. I can calculate a missing angle at a point

In both tutorials, there is a recap of types of angles to start and then I explain how to find missing angles for the challenges below.

Green- Calculate a missing angle around a point when one other angle is given

 

 

Orange- Calculate a missing angle where at least 2 other angles are given

Red- Use knowledge of angles to identify a missing angle around a point with at least 3 other missing angles (not all angles are labelled so you will have to use your previous knowledge to help you)

 

 

Additional support- Please use the steps support which is available to download below. You will need to choose the steps for either the green challenge or the orange/red challenge.

Extension- Reasoning and problem-solving with angles meeting at a point

10-10:15

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

L.O: To understand the impact of climate change on the Arctic region (know: understand)

Success criteria:

1. I can use appropriate geographical vocabulary to describe some of the physical and human features of the polar regions

2. I can recognise the positive and negative impact that people have on the environment

3. I can offer reasons and explanations for what I learn about polar regions

 

Reading: Focus summarising

 

Read/listen to the text Climate Change in the Arctic region on the link and in the attachments below.

 

 

https://wickedweatherwatch.org.uk/climate-change/

 

Answer the following questions:

a) Explain why a small increase in temperature can have a ‘huge impact.’

b) Summarise in your own words how climate change is affecting the people and animals in the Arctic region.

c) Summarise the arguments against climate change happening

d) ‘Climate change only affects people in the Arctic region.’ Do you agree with this statement? Use evidence to support your answer.

 

Watch the video clips on climate change in the Arctic and make notes in your own words, using geographical vocabulary

 

 

 

 

More challenging video below- Watch if you want to be challenged with the scientific and geographical language used and the areas introduced.

 

 

 

Task: To present the information you have learnt about the impact of climate change on the Arctic region. You could also finish this task this afternoon if you wish to. https://youtu.be/_BqRlToZ6lk

 

Green: To create a detailed mind map or a detailed poster on what you have learnt today on climate change in the Arctic region.

Orange: To create a multiple choice quiz (aim for at least 8 questions) on climate change in the Arctic region.

Red: To create a PowerPoint presenting what you have learnt (in your own words) on climate change in the Arctic region.

 

Remember to:

· Consider your audience-how can you engage them in what you have learnt?

· Include the most relevant information

· Consider your layout and presentation

· Use geographical vocabulary and make sure explain what it means to your audience

· Aim high-Article 6

Extension: To carry out your own independent research on The Arctic and Antarctica-select an area that you would like to know more about and put this information in your own words.
