Tuesday 5th January
Click on the document below to find out some facts about the Arctic. You do not need to print the document out. There are instructions for using the document on the first page. If your device won't let you write on the document it is fine to write your answers into your Home Learning book, take a phote and email that to your teacher.
I am sorry we can't use the online quiz I prepared - the website won't allow me to share it with more than 10 people. I have made a Microsoft Word version of the same activity. I hope you can access it. If you have any problems, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wednesday 6th January
Today's lesson is all about using punctuation in sentences. There are 3 levels of online activities for you to try.
When you have done your work, email your teacher to tell them which activities you tried. You also need to tell them how confident you feel about the work you did and about anything you would like to practice some more.

Friday 8th January
Click on the link below. It will take you to an app called Padlet.
On the screen, you will see 3 columns. You can add to any of the columns by clicking the + sign.
Column 1 = facts you know about the Arctic. If someone else has already written your fact, that is fine. You don't need to write it again.
Column 2 = things you would like to find out about the Arctic.
Column 3 = good sources of information you have found. These could be websites, books or even TV programs and YouTube videos. You can paste a web address so other people can get to the sites you found quickly.
Don't worry if your information doesn't show on the page straight away. Your teacher has to check your work before everyone sees it.
