Following on from our live lesson - Block Graphs
Use the tally chart below to create your own block graph.
Then tell me what your data shows. We will discuss this at 2.00pm on our online meeting.
Well we have been very busy in our English lessons this half term, we have looked at the story of The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch, making story boards and improving sentences with description. Then moving on from that story we made our own disgusting sandwiches that would have scared away even the most determined seagulls using the book - The disgusting Sandwich'. We then learnt how to use time connectives, imperative verbs and extra detail to write a set of instructions for our disgusting sandwiches and smoothies.
For the next two weeks were are going to focus on another story set on a small Scottish Island, which will also help us with our island geography topic too!
The story is called Katie Morag and the Two Grandmothers by Mairi Hedderwick.
Listen to the story below to meet Katie Morag and her two very different Grandmothers.
When you have finished look at the two pictures below of Katie's two grandmothers.
Can you think of some similarities and differences between the two? Can you make a table?
There are lots of clues in the story so listen to it more than once. It is not just what they look like where you can find the differences!
Today it's thinking Tuesday. Use the questions below to think about what makes you happy. You do not need to write anything down, unless you want to, but think about what makes you happy.
The story of Katie Morag is set on a Scottish island it is an imaginary island called the Isle Struay but this story island is based on the real Scottish island of Coll.
Today I would like you to watch the video of Katie Morag's island tour.
Look carefully at the human and physical features that you can see as she moves around the island.
Then, after you have finished watching it, I would like you to think of five questions that you could ask Katie or any of the characters about what it is like to live on a small island.
Remember you are working today as a Geographer in a Geography lesson. We are not finding out about Katie's favourite dinner or Grannie or we are not asking how old Katie is. That would be an English lesson.
Today you are a Geographer so think of some questions to find out about;
Don't forget, even though we are learning in Geography, we still need a capital letter and a question mark for our questions.
