A quick call-out to all of Year 5, asking everyone (who has not done so, so far, these last 2 weeks) to write a quick comment below this post. We are wanting to check up on all our families and see if everyone is safe and well before we break for Easter.
A simple “Hello” or “I’m fine” will do just dandy… but please make sure you state your name fully, if it’s not obvious in your username:
So… my turn – “I’m fine. Mr Crickett here… although my cats keep pestering me for food!”
It’ll be lovely to hear from you all! Let’s get everyone on board and making a quick post!
I hope you’re all looking forward to the weekend. Today we’ve got an activity using the Premier League Table. You will need to look at the top 5 teams (Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester City, Chelsea and Manchester United) and analyse the team form (the dots on the right of each team make it easy to see). Then you will need to find fractions and percentages to explain how the teams performed in their last 5 games. Feel free to include your own team!
NB: In this situation, a DRAW would have to count as a LOSS… well, they technically didn’t win the game!
Example: Crystal Palace won ⅗ of their last 5 games, meaning they won 60% of these games. They lost ⅖ of their games to Sheffield United and Everton, this shows they lost 40% of their last 5 games.
Yesterday, we looked at the features of a balanced argument and read some interesting articles.
Today, your task is to plan for your own balanced argument. You can choose your own topic that your are interested in or you can do the topic we focused on earlier this week, which was should the voting age be lowered to 16.
You can create a table to organise the for and against points for your debate. In this table, you can write short bullet point notes.
We were learning a range of songs, in Singing Assemblies, that were actual examples of many sung by the Suffragettes as they were marching to protest. If you’re in the mood, have a try of these for this week, and we will post the rest in the following weeks!
We can share them here for you to practice and enjoy! Follow the Lyric Sheet provided and click on the YouTube links below: remember, the Suffragettes chose to create their own lyrics, so those won’t be on the videos… you can follow the sheet though!
Enjoy a good sing-song… ‘Two Pounds’ apologises for his absence, but he’s in self-isolation at school and is unable to come visit and perform! 😉
