If anybody would like to have a game of Times Tables Rock Stars, I propose that at 10:45am-11:15am and/or 2:15pm-2:45pm you log on and we can try and get some games going against each other. I have put two times in case there are some of you who can't get on at one of those times and we will play daily!
No one has been able to beat me yet! My personal best is 79. Bring it on!
For your English task, go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6py382 and watch the videos to complete the activities. These activities will help your history task below as your setting descriptions are going to be brilliant with this practise!
There is a spelling list below for you to practise and I would like you to select another 7 or 8 to practise. I would suggest that you try them and see which ones you know you need to work on!
For your history task, you are going to write a powerful description based on what John Stephens and Frederick Catherwood – two American traveller-explorers – rediscovered in 1839, trekking through the jungles of Central America. The travellers found things that had long been forgotten about. Look at passage below (I have also included this as a word document separately as well) written by John Stephens in his diary at the time. There is an image of the Maya maize god that was found and images of various temples and pyramids.
I would like you to write, in character, about what you see in the jungle. What do you imagine that the ruins are for? You have found many massive buildings made of stone covering huge areas in different parts of the jungle of Central America. What could these cities have been for? Did people live in them? If not, why go to all the trouble of constructing them?
There is also a writing frame to help for those of you who may get a bit stuck when starting.
Remember to use powerful, relevant and ambitious adjectives to make this work stand out. You could use a whole host of other SPaG skills to make this even better (think about what we have focused on over the last number of weeks).
Make sure to decide on what you think the buildings and structures are for and why the Mayans would have used them. Rhetorical question? (hint hint)
