Editing and proof reading               

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

Editing and Proof Reading Checklis1


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.

Texts to choose based on your score


G Share this with another person in your family, did you find all the mistakes?

Remember to apply proofreading skills to all your writing tasks to ensure that you are producing your best work.




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.



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.


How many legs can you count in this farmyard picture?


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

1.       Read the question carefully

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.
