WALA the 10 commandments

This week we are learning about the Ten Commandments. 

Moses and the 10 Commandments

Watch this video about Moses and the Ten Commandments.

Look at the PowerPoint about the Ten Commandments.

Have a look again at the 10 commandments.

Order them from what you think are the most important to the least, this is what you think so someone else might have a different order to you.

Do you think some of them need to be reworded? Could you re-write them so they are more up to date?

The Story of Moses. (If you want to know more)


WALT appreciate poetry

Zoom lesson 1

Today we will be looking at another poem written by Robert Burns titled My Love is like a Red, Red, Rose. Click the link below to watch the poem performed as a song by Eva Cassidy. How do the words make you feel? What do you think it is about?


Complete the tasks below. You need to use the dictionary provided to work out the meanings of some of the words. You then need to try and work out what the poem is about by annotating it. If you are finding it tricky you can use the labels to help you. Can you give your own thoughts? Are there any lines that you like? Why?



The Egyptian Pyramids 

Click the picture to watch the short film before you answer the questions below

1.    Do you think the camel is interested in what has been found? How do you know?
2.    What appears? How does this happen?
3.    What does the face of the statue turn into? How does this happen?
4.    What happens to the man?
5.    What do you think was inside the pyramid?


WALT correspondence problems

Zoom lesson 2

Following on from our learning of how to divide two and three digit numbers we are today going to look at how to solve correspondence problems. Basically we will be making as many different combinations as we possibly can and as a result we may need to apply our times.

Look at this image:

So Ron has put in three cubes, a red one, a blue one and a yellow one. So if Ron was to pick out a cube, he may pick out:

  • a red one
  • a blue one
  • a yellow one

We know that he only has 3 possibilities because he is picking out one cube and he has a choice of 3 different colours. Therefore,  3 x 1 = 3 combinations

If we look at this image:

He now has five colours, a yellow one, a red one, a blue one, a green one and a black one split across two boxes.

So pick a start colour, I am going to start with yellow, then red and then blue.

  • Yellow and Green
  • Yellow and Black
  • Red and Green
  • Red and Black
  • Blue and Green
  • Blue and Black

I could work that I had to find 6 combinations because I know that 3 (number of blocks in one box) x 2 (number of block in other box) = 6


3 x 2 = 6 combinations
