Task-As we are learning about ‘World War II’ in our Topic this term, it would be fun to bake yummy Anzac cookies. Anzac biscuits have been associated with the Australian and New Zealand army (ANZAC) established in World War I. It has been claimed that these biscuits were sent to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily, and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation. So, follow the recipe and bake your crunchy Anzac cookies. 

 

It was so wonderful to see so many of you joining in again in today’s live lesson! Keep up this excellent effort! As we discussed, attached are the slides from our lesson here. This will be a great opportunity for you all to revisit all the features of instructions we learnt today. Remember to complete your follow-up task- baking Anzac cookies (the recipe is above).

 

Happy baking and have a fabulous weekend! :-)

Today you are going to have a go at starting your writing. Remind yourself of the genre that we are writing by going back and looking at some of the example reports you have been given. You are going to focus today on writing the Title and opening paragraph to your report. This is where you introduce your gadget and give a brief overview of it (think the 5 W's) so don't go into too much detail. There is a checklist to help support you as to what you can include.

Non-chronological report checklist.

Reading

During the week, please ensure that you are reading your book at home, as much as possible. Reading is the key to so much of our learning!

There are going to be three tasks for you to complete alongside reading your books.

1. Choose a character from your book and write a character description about them. Don't forget to get key information from the text to help you with this.

2. Use the description from the text, as well as any other information you can pick up, to help you draw a picture showing the setting of the story. You can label this with the information you have picked out of the text, to show why you have included/drawn certain things.

3. Write a review of the book you have been reading, even if you have not finished. Think about what you have enjoyed/not enjoyed, what type of story/text do you think it is, who would it appeal to and how/who you would recommend this to.
