Good morning lovely Year 5,
Hope you are all still smiling. We are nearly halfway through May. How many of you are keeping up with the Active May calendar – I am managing Gold most days (I was a bit rubbish at the football challenge though). If you haven’t tried any challenges, give them a go – they don’t take too long 😊.
Here are your tasks for the day:
English / Topic:
Before you begin, you will need the for and against list you made yesterday.
First: Decide whether you think deforestation SHOULD be banned or SHOULDN’T be banned, so that you can use the corresponding for OR against arguments.
Once you have decided how you are going to present your ideas (either as a poster or a letter) you need to think about how you are going to write it. An effective piece of persuasive writing makes a point, uses evidence or a fact to back up/support the point and then uses further explanation to make the point as clear as possible.
(e.g. Fruit is important as part of a balanced diet [point]. Nutritionists recommend eating between 5 and 10 portions of fruit and vegetables each day [evidence/fact]. In order to obtain a balance of vitamins and minerals, you should aim to eat a 'rainbow' of fruit and/or vegetables over the course of a week [further detail/explanation].
Use the Point, Evidence and Explain template below to help you organise your ideas or writing.
** This writing task will take you more than one day to complete. Take as much time as you need. Don’t forget to send us a photo – we would love to see your work. **
Below are some resources that may help you with your planning and writing:
Maths: You can choose to answer some mixed questions (the answers are on page 3, straight after the questions):
OR to complete a ‘Number of the Week’ activity (choose Year 4 or Year 5):
We hope you have a lovely day,
Mrs Canipa and Miss Wood
