L Galton - 07 Jan 2021

Hello team Pegasus!

Here is the work for this week.

Remember, you can message us on teams if you need help.

Your grown ups can email us with any questions too. Please try to work independently and keep doing your best.

Maths - Multiplication and Division
This week we continue to focus on Multiplication and Division. The first few sessions are focusing on comparing statements and related calculations. You will then move on to multiplying and dividing 2 digits by 1digit. 
I have added the video links, flashback 4 and activities for each day. The flashback 4 activities are what we did in class each day before beginning our maths lesson.
You will also find a true or false question each day (which we ended our maths lessons with) and some problem solving and reasoning activities if you would like some extra challenges. 
Please note that the problem solving and reasoning activities are meant to be for the whole unit so if you choose to have a go at these please don't do too many in one go. We have this week and next before we finish this unit.

Challenge cards 

Art and Design

Learning Objective:
To create my own self-portrait using pencil techniques.
You are going to draw a picture of yourself (a self-portrait).
Watch this video demonstrating how to draw a face.
Self-portrait drawing 3-5th grade - YouTube
On a piece of A4 paper, start by drawing an oval for your face and dividing it with light lines like you were shown on the video.
Then lightly sketch the features of your face in the right place.
Using a mirror or a printed photograph, look at your own face and see what needs altering. For example, your face or eyes might be a slightly different shape.
Once you are happy with the positioning of your features, sketch them in more detail like you were shown on the video.

Science: Rocks
This week we will continue to focus our Science learning on types of rocks and their properties.

First of all, use this PowerPoint to help you find out more information about the 3 main types of rocks.
Once you have worked your way through this we would like you to create a poster to show your knowledge on the 3 types of rocks.
If you are stuck on what to include you could use some of these suggested subheadings for your poster:
