Your homework tasks have been set for this week on MyMaths. Don't forget you can also practice any of the lessons by clicking on the 'Practice' tab after you login - remember to look at the 'Lesson' before attempting the questions.
Your tasks have been set on Reading Eggspress. Don't forget you can also access lots of reading books using the Library on the platform too. Use the scrolling option at the top of the library to select the age to increase or decrease the difficulty of the text.
To compile a set of Research Questions for our new topic: Darwin's Delights.
Task 1 - Matrix Questions
Below, I have included a Question Matrix poster and YouTube video about Charles Darwin to help you think of some questions that you wish to explore throughout this topic.
Make sure to share you questions with me to help create a bank of research questions to look at during this topic - (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Task 2 - Research Presentation
After you have finished your questions, start your research on Darwin and any areas that may interest you. Present your research by beginning a presentation (e.g. PowerPoint, Playlist, etc.) which you will be able to add to throughout the topic.
Do your best to complete these activities and don't forget, if you need any help with any of the tasks - please don't hesitate to contact me.
Happy New Year to you all,
Mr Williams 😁
