One of the chapters looks into the process of mummification (no spoilers as to why!). We looked at it a few weeks ago during one of our Topic lessons.
Your task is to write a detailed instruction guide for how you should mummify a dead person. There's a Powerpoint with an example text in the style that I'm looking for - notice that each section has lots of information for how to do each step. The last page of the Powerpoint has a Success Criteria for the things I am looking for in your writing; see if you can include them all.
I've also put the sheet we used to understand the mummification process below, but feel free to do your own research on it too.
CHALLENGE: If you didn't do it over half term, why not try mummifying a piece of fruit?! The instructions are below.
On Friday, we'll be looking at using Apostrophes for possession. Before half term, we looked at how they are used for contractions (putting two words together), so this is their other purpose.
Use the BBC Bitesize link below to understand how it works - there are also a couple of activities on the webpage that you could do too.
I've put below the worksheets that we will be doing too, with the answers on the last page each time.
For the start of the week, we'll be recapping long multiplication and making sure we are secure with our knowledge of it. If you aren't, look back at last week's page and have a go at some of the White Rose worksheets that are on there. I've included the Fluency, Reasoning & Problem Solving questions that we will be doing in class, probably on Tuesday.
Our next focus will be division, using the 'bus stop' method. I've put the link to a YouTube video that explains the process quite clearly.
The White Rose worksheets show division of a 3 or 4 digit number by a 1 digit number. There won't be any remainders in your final answer - that's one way of making sure you've done it correctly. We'll start to look at how to show remainders next week.
As always, if there's anything you aren't sure about, send me a ClassDojo message and I will do what I can to help you out.
In Topic, we are starting to focus on the River Nile and why it was so important to the Ancient Egyptians.
See if you can complete the map of Egypt with the River Nile and other key places during the Ancient Egyptian era, like the Valley of the Kings and the Pyramids of Giza.
CHALLENGE: Create a factfile poster about the River Nile.
Some questions you could think about are:
How long is it?
What countries does it flow through?
What species of animals and plants can be found there?
Which sea does it finish in?
