BTN (Due Friday 28th April) This week you can select your own BTN video to watch and write a reflection about.
Hot Maths (Due Friday 28th April) This week is all about measurement.
100 Word Challenge (Due Friday 28th April) The 100 word challenge website is not posting for a few weeks so the picture prompt for this week is…Reading Log Remember to fill in your reading log every night and get a parent to sign it. I will be checking your reading logs on Wednesday, so please make sure you bring it to school.
This is the last week of term 1, so we are only going to have 2 homework tasks to complete.
Buddy Letter Create a letter for your buddy. It should introduce you and let your buddy get to know a little bit about you. You should also ask them some questions. Remember to think about your audience-what words will they understand? What things will interest them? How can you publish/illustrate/decorate it so that it helps them understand and appeals to them? This letter will form the basis for your first meeting with your buddy. You will get to meet your buddy at the start of term 2, so this letter needs to be done by the first day back. Due: First day of term 2
100 word challenge This weeks prompt is: Hard Beautiful Brown Worried Camera. Include these 5 words in your piece. Perhaps try to include some of the techniques we have been learning about in writing lessons. Due: Friday 31st March
Create a ‘3 recalls/2 questions/1 insight’ reflection for this video about Anh Doh’s experience as a refugee form Vietnam. This NEEDS to be completed by WEDNESDAY for our history lesson:
There will be no BTN response for homework this week. Instead you are going to play a game. This needs to be done before Thursday as we will be discussing what you learned at school as part of hour history lesson.
Click on the picture to open up the game- playing it will give you an idea of some of the different sorts of struggles and joys of different groups of people who lived at the goldfields in the 1850s. Try to play it more than once and using two or more characters so you get a picture of the different possibilities that may have awaited these groups.
The other Homework to be done this week is HotMaths and 100 word challenge.
Visit my ‘homework information’ page to get the links to Hotmaths and 100 word challenge.
This week our viewing reflection is not from BTN. it’s actually from the National Film and Sound Archive ( http://dl.nfsa.gov.au/module/1614/) But you should still complete your reflection in the same way as you would a BTN reflection. Click the link to watch the video.
Make sure you have it finished before Friday as our lesson on it will be this Friday.
If you want to go further (completely voluntary!), this link will take you to a really interesting radio presentation about convict life in ‘The Rocks” in Sydney:
(click on the picture)
It has LOADS of interesting information about what life was like for early convict settlers and goes for 13 minutes. You could choose to write your reflection on this radio interview instead of the video if you’d prefer.
