This week at school, we are having a joint theme - 'MY MONEY'.
But if you need to check your answer from the end of the last fraction video, here is a snapshot of the answer...
So - on with...
'My Money week: Planning A Day Out
All of the lessons this week are quite discussion based and are pitched for ages 7-11. If you have brothers or sisters this age, it would be more fun to do as a family... what we should and shouldn't spend money on causes quite a debate!
Today's discussion is all about a boy called Max who is planning a day out and needs your help deciding what to spend his birthday money on...
Before you start the discussion, prepare the video and the PDFs
.Open the video link below (you will need to register to create a log-in - it is FREE)
Print or view the PDFs
Parent guide - pages 8-12
Children’s pages - just print pages 3 & 4 (or view on screen) This is part of an extension so you may not need to use them)
1. Start discussion about how much money your child receives on birthdays and what they spend it on.
2. Watch 1st video of Max. At end - vote for the either seaside or zoo
At the end of each video, the your child must make a choice - you play the video they vote for... you will see on the PDF all the different choices that will pop up.
4. Extension activity (if you need another activity - depending on how long your discussions go): children have a copy of the activity choice cards each and cut out alternative ways to spend the money - or copy them into their book.
NEW TOPIC - MOUNTAINS
Now you know how rivers are formed, it's time to look in detail at the mountains around them. Mountains are absolutley fascinating formations. I know you will love finding out more about them. Let's start by watching the video..
In your book - write a large neat heading
'Five Types of Mountain'
Underneath you will need to write an information page. Explain how they are formed with a sub-heading for each type of mountain. Use neat joined handwriting. Draw a smart little drawing next to each paragraph and add a caption below it. Shade your drawings neatly.
If you have any of these items in your house - it's a fun way to demonstrate on a table top how these mountains are made. Don't worry if you don't - reading the instructions on how to make them is fun too..
