English/Topic: Endangered animals

This week you are going to be looking at an endangered species. We have chosen the orangutan as this is probably not the first animal that you would think of. If we had asked you, you would probably have said, rhino, leopards, tigers and elephants.

We would like you to use the research information and sites that we have attached and make clear notes either by printing off the information and highlighting it or making your own cue cards.

The activity this week is to make a film about the plight of orangutans. These are the things you will need to think about to include in your report.  If you are in school, you could create and produce this as a group – make sure you all get in front of the camera though!

If you have siblings across these year groups work together if you wish.

  • Visual items to show to camera – such as
    • pictures of an orangutan,
    • a map showing where in the world they live,
    • maybe sweets or products that contain palm oil (you’ll understand this once you read the information attached)
    • maybe a banner in the background.
    • You might want to set up a table/desk so that you look like a news reporter (this might help you if you need to use your cue cards to remember facts/information)
  • Images
  • Websites written on a sheet of paper to show to the camera at the end of your report
  • Being animated – this means show enthusiasm, change your tone and volume of your voice to keep the attention of your audience. Use facial expressions, body movements have a look at this link (its slightly over the top – but will give ideas for speaking to camera)
  • Dress Up – have fun with this.

 

Take your time to research well – set yourself a timetable

Monday – Research facts about the orangutan and make cue cards (in the form of bullet points). These will be used as prompts for you when you come to film.

Research:

Sites you might wish to use to help with your research (there is also an information pack in the word document uploaded at the bottom of this webpage)

If you are unable to make a film (phones are good to use) then produce a written report using:

  • Subheadings
  • Paragraphs
  • Wow facts
  • Images
  • Websites to go to for further information
  • An impressive front cover

Most of all, make this fun, involve the whole family, embrace the fact of NOT writing (if you make a film), but remember research and practice will make for a brilliant film.

 

On Thursday, post your film on Class Dojo or if you have any problems doing this send it to the office email and they will forward it to your teacher.

 

Maths:

Daily 10

Pupils have also been using daily 10 in class to improve this recall of multiplication and division facts. They all know how this works. Click on the link below to access the website.

Having listened to your feedback, some of you preferred the white rose maths, and some preferred the NCETM videos. So, I am going to offer a choice. You can either do the white rose or  the NCETM videos. There is no right or wrong option, it is what best suits you. Either lesson will benefit your child.
