Week 13 English
Like last week, you have 2 options for your English lessons this week. I know some people really enjoyed the links to the Oak English unit and other people would prefer to stick with the BBC English lessons.
The information and links for both are below.
OPTION 2: BBC Daily Lessons
This is the link for this week's English tasks. There are English activities for each day of the week - all based on exactly what you would be covering in school with your reading, writing and spelling. All you need to do is watch the videos and have a go at the tasks in your home learning books.
Week 13 Maths
Head to the White Rose Maths website and watch the daily video. Then complete the corresponding worksheet below and check your answers using the answer sheet. Some of the worksheets may seem tricky - head to the BBC for extra videos and activities on the same topic.
Don’t forget Friday is Maths Challenge Day!
Viking Lesson: Danegeld
Begin by drawing a quick sketch of what you think a Viking warrior might have looked like, including the weapons they might have used.
Then read the information on the Lesson Presentation. Were you correct? Use your new knowledge to accurately describe a Viking warrior.
King Ethelred II The Unready: Read the information and decide whether you think Ethelred deserves the title of ‘The Unready’.
Dane-Geld: Read the information and then Rudyard Kipling’s poem, Dane-Geld.
Viking Poem: Use the Viking Poem Activity Sheets to act out, order or write a poem about the Viking raids and Danegeld. You can also draw pictures to illustrate some of the verses. Can you show understanding of the problems Ethelred faced and explain why this led to the introduction of Danegeld?
