# Friday 08/10/21 – Maths

Today, we will be using all of the knowledge we have built in number operations to complete some  maths challenges!

Learning Goal: I can apply my knowledge of number operations to solve maths challenges.

First, listen to or read the information below;

Next, get your maths muscles flexing and warm up with a one minute challenge! Your answer is 100, in one minute write as many number sentences as you can!

For example; 100 = 90 + 10, 100 = 100 x 1, 100 = 100 + 0, 100 = 200 – 100

Record and circle the amount of number sentences you came up with – as a challenge you might set a timer for another minute and see if you can improve on the total of number sentences you can create!

Then, select an operation or operations you would like to revise and practise and choose the game or hands-on activity you will put into practice.

# Thursday 16/09/21 – Survivor task

Click on the title of this post to see today’s Survivor challenge.

Learning Goal: I understand how the indigenous communities hunted.

First, watch the video below on the indigenous hunting tools.

Microsoft Stream

Next, draw the table below in your exercise book.

 Spear Boomerang Woomera

Then, list all the features of the hunting tools from the video.

Finally, reply to this post by telling me which one of these tools you think was the most efficient and justify your answer by explaining your thinking.

Challenge: find out more about Aboriginal Culture by visiting https://www.natgeokids.com/au/discover/history/general-history/aboriginal-australian-culture/

# Thursday 16/09/21 – Writing

Learning Goal: I can create a procedural text.

First, watch the video below and see how to construct a slingshot.

Microsoft Stream

Next, list all the materials used to create this slingshot.

Then, carefully write down all the steps to create this slingshot.

Finally,  play the video again and see if your steps match the images.

Challenge: record yourself reading the steps to making this slingshot.

# Thursday 16/09/21 – Maths

Learning Goal: I can use units of measurement accurately.

First, see if you can list all the equipment used by these Olympians in the pictures below:

A recent Olympic record for throwing the Javelin was about 95 (child) strides, for throwing the shot put it was 76 (child) strides and finally for throwing the discus it was about 82 (child) strides.

Then, think about what units of measurement you could use to give an accurate measurement for those records.

After that, estimate each of the records using formal units of measurement

 Informal units Estimate using formal units of measurement Accurate measurement Javelin 95 strides Shot put 76 strides discus 82 strides

Finally, use a measuring tool of your choice, measure the accuracy of each Olympian’s throw.

Don’t forget, you can watch the video below to remind yourself about units of measurements:

Challenge: use your slingshot and see if you can set a new record.  Post the distance of your sock throw in the post below.

# Tuesday 14/09/21 – Day 2 Survivor Challenge

Welcome to day 2 of survivor. Good morning and congratulations. You all aced it through day 1 of the survivor challenge!

Nicole and Zoe are your hosts for day 2. Yesterday you formed your tribe and chose your mascot, and today you need to build your shelter!  Nicole, 3/4 A. I know there are other tribes watching so I will let  you know where this shelter is later!

First… Watch the video below to learn about today’s Survivor Challenge:

Now that Zoe has set the scene for you from her secret survivor shelter, it is time to get to work.Before you start, spend 5-10 minutes getting survivor fit with these practise challenges!

To be able to survive in extreme conditions you will need skills such as strength, balance, endurance, strong willpower, and communication skills. Try out one or two of these practise challenges and see how you go:

• Stand on one leg: Set a timer or stop watch and see how long you can stand still on one leg. Have 3 attempts to find your longest time.
• Staring competition: Choose a partner at home, or use a mirror – how long can you go without blinking?
• Survival calls: If you lose your team mates in the jungle, how will you find each other? Come up with a special call that your team mates can recognise to find you! Can you include some animal noises?
• Superhero pose: Choose your own superhero pose. Stay strong and bold and still! How long can you stay in this position without moving a muscle.

To make sure you are able to build the best possible shelter, you will need to complete learning tasks in:

Then… it is time to complete your survivor challenge and create your shelter. Remember to check with the grown-ups in your home before pulling apart the couch cushion or creating any other kind of mess. Look at the examples and details below:

Don’t forget about Mindfulness – a strong, sharp mind is essential to surviving!

Survivors… BEGIN!

Learning Goal: I can compare different types of shelters.

First, press play to read along and listen to the text about the floating shelters in Peru.

Next, think about your home. What materials is it made out of? What shelter does it give you? What are the rooms like?

Then, draw a venn diagram. Make a list of the features your home has, the features the floating homes have, and similarities they both have.
