Line Graphs

Today we are going to move on to the statistics side of our maths, this lesson is going to look at line graphs. When you look at any graph you need to look across the x axis and then up the y axis. The x axis is the bottom of the graph that runs from left to right and the y axis is on the left-hand side of the graph that runs from top to bottom. A good way to remember which part of the graph you need to look at first is that x comes before the y in the alphabet.

The main thing you need to be careful of when interpreting any form of graph is that you read the question carefully and look at the information in the graph. When it asks you how much something is compared to something else you need to find the difference between two points on the graph.

Example:

In this example the line graph is showing the sleep patterns for one week. The x axis displays the days of the week and the y axis shows the amount of sleep in hours.

Which days did the person have the most amount of sleep?

Looking at the line graph you can see that the highest points on the line graph are Friday and Saturday.

How many more hours sleep did the person get on Friday compared to Wednesday?

This is where you would need to look at the hours from Friday = 9 hours

And the amount of sleep on Wednesday = 6 hours.

So to find my answer I would need to do 9-6 = 3. So my answer would be 3 hours.

Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

Planning

Today we will be focusing on how we plan our letters with the separate points that we want to make to the Mayor. Each paragraph needs to contain a separate point.  As we now know formal letters need to be set out in a particular way, from the correct positioning of addresses to how the text is organised in each paragraph.

I have attached an example plan which I have included a few things to help you get started.  I have also attached a blank plan that you could use to draft your own ideas.

Your task today is to see how the plan is set out and how each section/box states a different point, once you have done this you need to fill in your own plan. The first section of the plan states the three main points you will be making in your introductory paragraph, (the reasons you are writing to the Mayor.)  The sections underneath are titled, reason 1, 2 and 3, in these sections you need to be telling the Mayor in detail how the current ‘rat’ situation is affecting your lives.

E.g. Point – the family are starving.

Evidence – the children have eaten all the food in the house, they keep asking for more food and they are getting very thin.

Explanation- the rats have eaten all the food and there isn’t any to buy at the market.  I am appalled that this is the case.

This is still only the planning part of your letter so try and put a lot of thought into what points you would like to make to the Mayor and how strong you feel about the current situation.

During our live lesson today, we will discuss structure of the letter and content in more detail.

Computing

Can you trust everything you see/read online?

This Thursday is ‘Safer Internet Day’ so today’s computing lesson will be about what we look at when we are online. As our world of learning has changed and we are using the internet to research a lot more we need to be aware that not everything we see online is trustworthy.

I have attached the presentation for today’s lesson, read through it and complete the task titled, ‘My Checklist.’  The Powerpoint informs you about what to look for when you are online to see if the website is trustworthy. You will need to look at the information you have been given and fill out the checklist.  This asks you for the clues that tell you whether websites are trustworthy and/or reliable.

Example: Would you be able to tell if the website is an official site or not?

If you were buying a new Disney DVD, would you buy it straight away or would you look to see if the DVD had the official Disney logo on it? If the DVD hadn’t you probably wouldn’t buy it.  The Disney Logo tells you that the item is from an official website. An official logo tells/shows you that the website is genuine and trustworthy.  Official logos/companies are one of the clues that you need to look out for when going on to different websites.

If you are able and want to print the worksheet off you can. Once you have completed the sheet glue it into your blue books, if not make your own checklist in your book.

Science

Famous Naturalists

Today’s lesson is based around some of the world’s most famous naturalists. A naturalist is someone who dedicates their life work to studying plants and animals and a lot of their work is based around scientific research.

During the lesson take some time to read through the presentation – in here you will find out about a few different naturalists however our main focus is going to be on Sir David Attenborough. He is the most famous naturalist of our time and you will have seen many of his programmes on the BBC from Blue Planet, Planet Earth and Nature.

Once you have completed your research about Sir David Attenborough and answered the question linked to both naturalists on the second sheet please take the afternoon to spend some time watching this David Attenborough programme so you can understand how passionate he is about the natural world.
