I hope your tummies are feeling strong as it's a sit up challenge today!
Today, I would like you to start by doing your Learn It challenge. Give yourself 2-3 minutes to complete it. I have emailed these out to those of you learning from home. Those of you learning in school should have one in your tray. If you haven't got one, send me an email and I'll send it across. Let me know how you get on so I can update my tracker and send you a new one if you pass ready for next week. Good luck!
We are going to be continuing with our work on long division from yesterday. Watch the videos below to start with.
I would suggest watching the first video and having a go at Q5 on the worksheet, then watch the second video and then complete the rest of the worksheet.
*Please ignore my notes at the top! I always practice doing the sums first before recording my videos (practice makes perfect!) and I didn't realise that they were in shot of the camera when I was recording!*
Yesterday, you planned your prayer to a Mayan God. Today, I would like you to write your prayer. Your prayer is likely to be a shorter piece of writing than we normally do for silent writing. This is fine, but means that the words you use need to be really precise and the order of your sentences really matter.
I had a go at writing a prayer to Hun-Hunahpu because I wanted to focus on saying thank you for food (I love food as you know!). I wrote a draft version first and then spent time trying to improve my word and phrase choices. I also ended up moving some of my sentences around and ended up with 6 clear parts:
You might want to magpie this way of organising ideas or you might be able to come up with something different which works better for you. Either is fine!
Read through mine first, then have a go at writing yours. I've included the link to all the facts in case you need to check anything.
We've learnt lots about the Mayan Gods over the past two weeks.
We know that there are a huge number of them (over 165!), they often have powers, they are often made up of one or more animals and they are often used to explain different things. For example, Chac was used to explain why the Mayans experienced thunder. If they heard thunder, they would know that it was just because Chac was angry and had struck the clouds with his axe.
Today, I would like you to design your own Mayan God. You can be as creative as you like! Work through the sheet below which has different questions and prompts to guide you through your design.
2.45pm Pilates Live on Google Classroom
I am so pleased that so many of you are enjoying the live Pilates and joining in, so I've decided that I will try and do one of these sessions every week from now on. I think some of your parents, siblings and pets are also enjoying it!!!
Today we will do some of the moves we have worked on before and I'll also add in some new ones.
Join the Google Classroom link at 2.45pm, make sure you are wearing something comfortable and have a glass of water ready.
