SPaG and Literacy:
This week we are going to look at creating a delicious menu for The Grinch! We need to make it sound interesting so that the Grinch will choose your dinner to eat!
To create our amazing menus, we will be developing skills on:
- Layout features of a menu
- Descriptive writing using adjectives
First we need to look at the layout features of a Menu. Layout features are the different types of writing/text to add interest to something. Just like a story needs a title to tell us what it is about, a menu needs a title to tell us what it is!
It is important that a menu has these features so we know what to pick when we go to restaurant and cafes, and how much things cost!
Here are some examples of Menus below:
- Can you write down 5 layout features you notice in the menus above? (One example includes the menu title)
- Can you explain what each of these features are used for in a menu?
- Can you add in the layout features to the simple menu below by redesigning the menu to make it more exciting?
- You can decorate and add pictures to your menu when you have added the layout features!
Maths: estimate answers
Below, you will find a step by step video, worksheets and the answers to mark your work.
Today we are going to watch a video all about unwrapping a present!
We are focusing on the VIPERS skill of infer this week and that means
“Make inference from the text/ explain and justify using evidence from the text.”
That means what the characters are thinking/feelings and what you think about certain characters!
Here is a link to a page that explains the VIPERS in a little more detail if you need a recap.
Here is the video to watch for the reading task today:
Here are the questions for the video:
To be able to understand the food for our menu for the Grinch, we are going to explore the science of food and how temperature changes the state of food.
We already know that there are 3 states of matter:
Here is a website to help you recap a little more on Freezing and Melting
Freezing and melting
Solids and liquids can be changed from one state to another by heating or cooling.
Heat melts a solid and turns it into a liquid. Cooling freezes a liquid into a solid.
If ice (solid) is heated, it changes to water (liquid). This change is called melting.
If water (liquid) is cooled, it changes to ice (solid). This change is called freezing. Water freezes at 0°C
Below is a PowerPoint showing different examples to what we do to food to change its state. This could be freezing or heating the food.
- Can you write 5 sentences to explain what is happening to the different foods/drinks and why they are changing in the pictures in the slideshow?
- If you put chocolate in your hand and left it there for 1 minute, what would happen to the chocolate? Explain what would happen in 2 sentences.
