Wow! A really fantastic effort from all of you yesterday with your pictogram work! You will need to use your knowledge to help you today. 

We are still learning about statistics but we are moving on to bar charts. We haven’t looked at these before but fear not! The video below explains everything you need to know for today’s lesson to help you answer the questions.

Bar charts

Today for SPaG we are going to be thinking about adverbs. An adverb is a word that describes a verb.

This means it is a word that describes how something is done, for example:

 

The boy quietly creeped into bed.

 

The adverb in this sentence is quietly as it tells us how the boy crept.

 

Grab the sheet titled Adverbs and have a go at the activities. If you need a reminder about adverbs, have a watch of the video below.

Well done with your ideas yesterday! That is going to really help us today with our writing!

 

Today, we are going to use the ideas we came up with to write an “Explorers Guide to Tools”. In this guide we are going to telling the reader how to use the items we have listed on our plans.

 

For example, my plan was for a first aid kit, so I might write:

 

When going on an amazing adventure, it is essential that you pack a first aid kit! You will require one to make sure any cuts, bruises or scrapes that will inevitably happen on the journey are tended to. In my experience, when climbing a HUGE mountain, I stumbled and grazed my knee. Luckily, I had packed my trusty first aid kit and quickly put a plaster on the wound. This made sure the graze didn’t get dirty.

 

As you can see I have included a reason and example about why someone would need to take the item with them. Make up an adventure you might have gone on and used the item to help explain how important it is!

Now that we know what the different types of forces are (Push, Pull and Twist)

Today we are going to look at two ways these forces can be applied to something: Contact Force and Non-Contact Force

 

- A contact force is when a force is applied by touching an object, for example: pushing open a door is a contact force because you have to touch the door to apply the force

- A non-contact force is when a force is applied without touching the object, for example: gravity is a non-contact force, as it pulls thing’s towards the centre of the planet without touching the objects.

 

Watch the videos below to get some more examples. Then for your task today, I would like you to draw and label 3 Contact forces and 3 Non-contact forces! Here’s one of each as an example:

Forces(Part-1)Contact and Non-contact | Grade-3,4 | TutWay |

Forces(Part-2) Classification of contact and non-contact forces | Science | Grade-3,4 | TutWay |
