# Monday 20th April 2020

Focus: Read – Information texts are formal

APK

What genre do you think these texts may be?

New Information:

There are many differences between the structure of information reports and narrative texts.

Some features include

• formal vs informal
• tier 3 words

Goal:

These are our unit goals for this term:

1. Readers understand the text structure and organisation of information reports.
2. Readers use appropriate strategies to understand information from the text.
3. Readers research for a purpose.

Using the information you have been given, which of the unit reading goals from above do you think we are starting with.

Application:

Read the text Quakes Floods and Natural Disasters (click the link below)

Choose a fiction text from home look at the differences between the two texts.

Draw a Venn diagram in your Reader’s notebook, on paper, or draw up a 3 column grid in your lesson application section of your Digital reader’s Notebook (One OneNote). Use the Venn diagram (or table) to illustrate the differences and similarities between the nonfiction text and a fiction book. Think about more than the physical differences such as what the texts will look like. Take a photo and put it into your class note book in the reading section under lesson application. Don’t forget to date your work and add the lesson goal at the top. (the lesson goal will be one of the three below –  using the lesson clues, which one do you think it will be?

1. Readers understand the text structure and organisation of information reports.
2. Readers use appropriate strategies to understand information from the text.
3. Readers research for a purpose.

Goal Reflection:

Write a reflection to justify which reflection goal you picked.

Example: I think it is this goal because….

Writing

Goal:  I can show what I know about writing information texts. (Pre-assessment)

APK:

What are some differences between narrative and information texts? Think about the structure, features and language used.

New Information:

As a pre-assessment, you are going write an information text on a topic that you are an expert on. The purpose of this pre-assessment task is to show everything you know about information reports. Make sure you consider the following:

• Text structure
• Features of information reports
 Features of information reports
• The language used in information reports

Application:

Choose a topic you know lots and lots about. Write an information report on this topic. Make sure you do this by yourself so that your teacher can see what you already know about writing information reports. Type your report on Onenote under your name/Writing/Information Reports/Pre-assessment

Don’t forget to date your work.

Some ideas for topics:

• Moonee Ponds Primary School
• A sport
• An animal
• A place/country

Goal Reflection:

Draw up a table to list some topics that would be suitable to write information reports about.  What are some that would be unsuitable?

Example

 Suitable information Report Topics Unsuitable information Report Topics

Wellbeing

Goal: I can identify character strengths I admire or value.

APK:

1. Draw a rough sketch which shows you (or another character) doing something positive for, or with, someone else. This sketch shows something you think is a ‘good’ thing. It helps make the world a better place for someone. Once drawn, you should label your sketch.

1. Take a photo of this picture and share in the ‘gallery’ page on our class OneNote Collaboration space.

If you are having trouble posting you may email to your teacher or post on your blog so we can copy it over. Failing that, please write, in the collaboration space, what your picture would have been about.

Links to Gallery Page, if you are having trouble finding it:

5/6A: Gallery

5/6B: Gallery

5/6C: Gallery

This lesson will be continued tomorrow – please make sure you have included a picture in the collaboration space so we can discuss it tomorrow. If you are unable to put a picture, please put a sentence explaining what the picture would have been of if you were able to insert it.

Maths

Goal: I can accurately identify and use tools to measure length and distance.

APK:

Measuring tools

Go on a hunt around your house.

What ‘tools’ can you find to measure with? What would they be used to measure?

 Name and picture of tool What might I measure with this? What units of measurement would I use?

If you are working at school or are unable to get up and move around the house in case you disturb others who are working – use this link/activity instead.

New Information:

We use different tools to measure different things with formal units eg. cm, g. Here are some examples of why accuracy is important:

• When making a cake, your measurement must be accurate, otherwise the cake won’t work.
• Builders need to be accurate because if they make a window too small, the glass won’t fit into it.

What other examples can you think of?

Application:

Work through the list, giving an example for each type of measurement. If you are at home, measure some items and record their exact measurement. Fill in the table with an example for each type of measurement. You can find the table in under your name/Maths/Lesson Application/Monday 20/4.

Length

Mass

Time

Temperature

Capacity

Perimeter

Area

Volume

When you have finished, try one of these activities. Level 1 is easier and Level 2 is more challenging.

Goal Reflection:

What were some of the challenges you encountered when trying to measure accurately?

Optional

Focus:

G I can use an editing checklist to edit a piece of work.
A
N

It is really important to proof read your work, before you submit your piece. Often students will submit their work and then realise that there were many silly errors or that their writing doesn’t make sense.

We write for an audience so if it doesn’t make sense to you then your audience will struggle to read your writing.

Using previous feedback given to you by your teachers peers and the editing checklist, edit the following pieces depending on your knowledge and effort score.

Friday 17/4  Mathematics

Focus:  Problem Solving/recording thinking

G I can use my problem solving skills to find the answer to a word problem and record my thinking.

1.       I’m not sure where to start

2.       I think I have a strategy that might work

3.       I’m reasonably confident I can do this

4.       I could teach someone else how to do this

Record your Knowledge and Effort scores.

A

How many legs can you count in this farmyard picture?

N  When I am solving a word problem in maths I must;

2.       Determine EXACTLY what is being asked.

3.       Use strategies from the Mathematician’s toolbox (can I draw this? Have I seen something like this before?)

4.       Record my thinking

5.       Check the accuracy of my working out

6.       Make sure the answer is clearly stated (have you included a clear answer with units?)

A Based on your pre-assessment score, choose the appropriate activity:

 If you scored yourself as a 1 or 2 In my backyard I have some chickens and some dogs.  Altogether I can count 12 heads and 38 legs. How many dogs do I have? If you scored yourself as a 3 or 4 In my backyard I have some chickens and some dogs.  Altogether I can count 25 heads and 78 legs. How many dogs do I have?

If you complete one activity easily, try to make up a similar clue yourself.

G  Take a photo of your working out for this and save it in your OneNote Class Notebook or on your blog. Write a reflection under it, sharing how you approached this problem and what worked or didn’t work.

Re-score your Knowledge and Effort scores.

 Thursday 15/4 Writing Focus:  I understand the writing process. G I can use the writing process to help me create a narrative. A Identify where you are at in the writing process with your personal writing. Most of you should be at the drafting and revising stages of your personal writing pieces. N It is important to set yourself a goal of what you want to achieve during this time. For example in this session I would like to complete my draft, or I will edit my piece of work. (If you do not have your Writer’s Notebook,  with you can start a new narrative. Use the prompt below).     … although it was Saturday nothing was opened… Things to consider: Why is this strange? What did you need to be opened? What will you do instead? How much of a problem is this? A Use the next 30-45 mins to work on your personal writing piece. Remember it is important to follow the writing process. If you have completed all the steps between prewriting and editing get someone to give you feedback. G What did you achieve in this session? Give yourself a knowledge and effort score.

In your Maths book (or another book if you do not have your Maths book) please complete the following lesson. Remember to use a ruler, red pen and pencil or blue/black pen. Date the work.

Thursday 15/4 Mathematics

Focus:  Equivalence in maths

I can match equivalent items in maths.

Record your Knowledge and Effort scores.

A
 This trick will impress even your maths teacher.
• Think of a number.
• Double it.
• Halve it.
• Take away you original number.

Try this with a different starting number. Did you get a different result? Why does this happen?

Write the answer on a piece of paper without letting anybody see it and seal it in an envelope. Have somebody hold the envelope and at the end ask them to open it and reveal the number you wrote at the beginning. Wow, Magic!

Equivalence is a term we use in mathematics. When two things are equal they are not the same but have the same value. For example 1/2 a pizza is equal to 4 slices of a pizza that has been cut into 8 pieces.
A Open the following document – Make me balance.

 Level 1 Activity   Match the equivalent amounts Balance me out – Level 1 Level 2 Activity   See how many of the things in section A you can match with the section B items. Group 2 Make-Me-Balance

If you finish quickly, see if you can make your own equivalent pairs.

G  What areas were you most confident in matching? What areas did you find challenging?
Re-score your Knowledge and Effort scores.
