Theme - Character description

Now that you have internalised the first two paragraphs of the Snow Queen's character description, your next task is to create your own story map for the last three paragraphs.  If there are some words that you can't work out how to draw, then you can just write the word like we have.  Once you have drawn your story map you should internalise it just like you have with the first story map.  This will help you when we come to writing a character description of Starjik. 


This task should take about an hour - there is no video input.


Today in maths we are going to work to consolidate or bring together all the maths we have learnt that is connected with money. 


Below you will find a series of tasks which will ask you to use all the skills you have been practising. Work your way through them one at a time - the answers are at the end. 


If you are printing then you don't need to print the first page. 

You don't need to print - but can instead write your answers on a separate piece of paper. 


See how far you get in the next hour! Enjoy


Maths Task for Bronze Plus

Maths Tasks for Silver and Gold

Whole Class Reading

This activity should take about half an hour. If you have worked really hard and have given some in depth answers but haven't finished stop - we are looking for quality. You can always finish it another day. 


Today we are going to read the Snow Queen character description again. You have already begun to look at the key features within it to help you to write your own, in English. Today in reading we are going to look at the authors word choices and break it down into our line by line analysis. Your job is to listen to the Video in the Video Resource Centre, to pause it after each question and write down your answer. Think really deeply about what the author is trying to say. 


We will look at part 1 today and part 2 on Monday. 

Science - Magnets

As you know Ivan’s dad is a blacksmith, this means he worked with different kinds of metals to make things such as horseshoes, door handles, tools and gates amongst other things. It was a very important job within the village.


Ivan spent a lot of time with his dad, in his workshop, where he discovered that some of the materials that his dad worked with were attracted to the magnet that he owned, and some were not.


Attracted when it comes to magnets means that the materials seem to stick to it or are pulled toward it invisibly. If a material is attracted to a magnet it is said to be magnetic if it isn’t then it is non-magnetic.


Your task today in Science is to investigate the following questions:

  1. Which type of materials are magnetic and which are non-magnetic?
  2. Are all metals magnetic? Which are and which are not?

You can present your findings however you like, a table, Venn diagram, photos, pictures, sorting circles or something else.

You will need to use a magnet – this could be a fridge magnet, magnetic letters, or a scientific magnet and between 10 to 15 different materials such as wood, plastic, wool, steel etc.


Golden Time

It's Friday so the last activity of the day would have been Golden Time.

Find your favourite toy, or game, or other activity (try not to use a screen as you will have been on it all day, instead try something different) spend half an hour relaxing. If there is someone at home who is able to play too then reward them with Golden time as well! You all deserve it. 

Happy Weekend!
