Today is Internet Safety Day and the theme is 'An internet we trust: Exploring reliability'. As part of this day, we would like you to watch the video below (click the picture) and have a go at the task.




TASK 1: Look at the following scenarios below, you can either write them down or simply discuss them with an adult or sibling.


How do you feel about each scenario? Use the compass point statements below. Can you explain why and give your reasons?


That's okay.

That's not okay.

It's okay if no-one finds out.

I'm not sure about this.

It depends.


TASK 2: Can you be online safety expert?

Choose a scenario and write a letter of advice or create a Top Tip poster for the person in the scenario. What should they do? What tips would you give them?




Please take a look at the information below on tips for remote education and National Online Safety Training. Thank you.











WALT plan a non-chronological report

Zoom 1

Today we need to plan our non-chronological report ready for Thursday. You need to think about what your title is going to be and you need to write at least two paragraphs. These could be about Viking homes, jobs, weapons, raiding, clothes, food or something of your choice. You will need to think about what your subheadings will be for your paragraphs. Don't forget you will need at least one 'Did you know' fact and pictures.


Can you remember the features of a non-chronological report?

Think of your Title. Some ideas are below.

You already have your introduction so think about your two paragraphs. What will your subheadings be? Include key facts. What openers and conjunctions will you use?

Think about the 'Did you know?' fact you are going to use. Make it as interesting as possible. You can include more than one.

Finally, think about the layout of your non-chronological report. You can sketch it out. Think about your shapes and text boxes.

Feel free to use the plan below to help you plan your non-chronological report.







Colouring activity.

Fill a page with scribbles (like in scribble spellings) and colour in each shape made in different colours or patterns. Enjoy!




WALT use equivalent fractions

Zoom 2

As you know we have been looking at 'equivalent' fractions for the last two days and we are now able to recognise that a 'fraction' can be 'equivalent' to other fractions. 

This shows us that ½ can be represented in many different ways, but all of these fractions are ALL worth exactly the SAME!

Often we will use a FRACTION WALL to help us to identify these equivalences:

By drawing an 'imaginary' line down the Fraction wall it helps us to identify which fractions are equivalent to each other.

sometimes you will find more than one possible fraction is equivalent. In the FRACTION WALL above you will see that, 2/3 is equivalent to 4/6, 6/9 and 8/12. Can you now apply these skills to find the equivalent fractions to 6/8?
