Literacy

 

This week we will be exploring arguments surrounding deforestation in more detail.

Can you remember what deforestation is?

What are the arguments against deforestation?

On the For and Against activity sheet, read each argument and decide if it is an argument for deforestation or against deforestation. Colour code the answers or write them into two lists in your book.

So, why is deforestation happening?

 

Have a read of the link below.

 

Some of the language is a bit tricky but there is a lot more detail on why deforestation occurs, what advantages this brings to our society.

After you have read it, can you write one paragraph explaining why deforestation occurs?

Maths

 

You have already learnt about rounding decimals but today you will round amounts of money to the nearest pound. You will have to look at the pence to help you do this.

Remember, 1 – 49 will round down.

                     50 – 99 will round up.

So £3.28 will round down to £3.00

     £1.86 will round up to £2.00

Complete the activity either sheet 1, 2 or 3 each getting harder as you go along. Next, try the challenge cards. How many can you complete?

Guided Reading

 

Monday – Pre-Read

Please read the short fiction text, Rainforest Calling. As you are reading, highlight (or make a list of) any unfamiliar words. What do you think these words might mean? Does the text help you to understand them?

Use a dictionary, ask an adult, or use the internet to research these words and understand the text.

Lesson 1– The Good Samaritan

 

The story of the Good Samaritan, as told by Jesus in one of the gospels of the New Testament.
A traveller is beaten up and robbed, and left for dead along the road. A priest comes by, but deliberately avoids the man. A lawyer also comes by, but he too avoids the injured. Finally, a Samaritan comes by, and he helps the injured man, in an act of mercy and compassion.

 

The Good Samaritan didn’t turn a blind eye when other needed help. So, just like him try to do an act of kindness to help someone else in these difficult times. There are lots of activities to choose from but always speak to an adult at home before you do one:

  1. I’m sure you’ve all heard about Captain Tom. What was his act of kindness? He’s recently just turned 100 so how about sharing some kindness with him by sending him a birthday card? Use the attached links to learn about him and how you can send him a card. Look how much money he has raised now and read his story (link 1)

Send him a card here (link 2)

  1. Write an email to a local care home, watch the BBC news clip with an adult to learn about what other children have done.
  2. What about using School’s Twitter account to see how each other are getting on? You could take a photo of all the great things you’ve been up to, to share on our school Twitter account for your friends in class to see, you could draw a lovely picture, take photos of your work or maybe design a lovely message you want to share with them.
  3. Or simply help out with kind acts at home such as helping to clean or cook. Maybe you could call, video message or write letters for family members you don't live with. 

 

What acts of kindness have you done so far? I’ve donated to Captain Tom and helped others with food shopping 😊
