Thursday

Guided reading

 

Today we would like you to read the pages of the book that are attached below. While you are reading, don't forget to highlight any words that you are not sure of so that you can find out their meaning later. 

 

Your task!

Read pages 12 and 13, and have a think about the following questions. You can make notes if you like, or just think about the answers in your head.

 

1. Why does the boy think that he can see a shark?

2. How does the boy feel when he thinks the creature is a shark? Find evidence in the text.

3. How does the boy identify the bottle-nosed whale? Find evidence in the text.

4. Look at these pictures of a shark, a bottlenose dolphin and a bottlenose  whale

Read – ‘To begin with I just stood there and stared. I thought I was still dreaming. I couldn’t take it in. I couldn’t believe my eyes.’ What does this tell us about how the boy might be feeling? Collect vocabulary.

What does ‘puffing and blowing’ tell us about the whale?

How did the boy know that the whale wasn’t being unfriendly?

What questions do you have for the author so far?

 

Literacy

Today we would like you to follow the literacy presentation below. There are a couple of worksheets to complete with today's lesson and an opportunity to go birdwatching. Enjoy!

 

PLEASE NOTE: THE LINK TO THE BIRDWATCHING ASSEMBLY ON PAGE 2 OF THE 'THURSDAY LITERACY POWERPOINT' DOES NOT WORK. USE THE FOLLOWING LINK INSTEAD.

Maths

Today in maths, you will be creating your own Jurassic World theme park by choosing attractions to add to it.

 

There is a video to watch fist which shows you how to estimate using rounding. You will need to use either the attachment below the video with the smaller priced attractions or if you're feeling more confident with rounding and estimating use the higher priced attractions sheet.

 

You will also need to use the estimating sheet attached to complete your calculations (attached as Word and PDF file). Today, only fill out the first three boxes in each row. Once you have completed the first row on your sheet, add two more items and so on. Remember to add different items to make your theme park exciting.
