WALT: Research information and take notes

Zoom 1

Now that you have written questions about the Vikings and organised them into subheadings, you now need to write notes for each subheading by finding the answers to your questions. Make sure your notes go under the correct subheading. Don't worry if you can't find all the answers to your questions, just include general information.



Use bullet points

Notes are short

Use key words

Skim and scan for important facts

Include only important or interesting information


Take a look at the example below:

These websites below may help you with your research. You don't just have to use these sites.


Feel free to use the Viking Research Map below. Remember your subheadings!

WALT compare area. 

Zoom 2

Today we will be comparing the area of different rectilinear shapes. We will be using the following symbols at points during this session:

< which means LESS THAN

> which means GREATER THAN

= which means EQUAL TO

We will be comparing rectilinear shapes and in some cases we can count the squares inside the shapes to calculate the area.

However we won't always have squares to help us calculate the area of rectilinear shapes. When this happens we need to use a formulae:


When we multiply the L x B of a rectilinear shape the product is the area of that shape.

This help us to be able to calculate the area without the need to count squares. It is a more EFFICIENT method.


WALA The Beatitudes.

This week we are going to learn about the beatitiudes. The beatitudes are  8 blessings described by Jesus on the sermon of the mount.

Each saying speaks of a blessing  that will be bestowed on the person who possesses a certain character quality. The word "beatitude" comes from the Latin beatitudo, meaning "blessedness." The phrase "blessed are" in each beatitude implies a currentstate of happiness or well-being.


Have a discussion about what each of the beatitudes means?

What do you think Jesus meant they would receive?


Beatitudes - Sermon On The Mount

Beatitudes - Sermon On The Mount! Holy Tales takes a look at the teaching of Jesus and his blessings on the Mount.
