This is Sir Nicholas Winton - read his unbelievable story here:
Look at the packaging above. Your fun task is to create a replica of any packaging or object used in every day life, from a net. Perhaps the most recognisable one is the Toblerone packet - it is simply a triangular prism.
Your task is to use your knowledge on nets from our maths lessons this week & recreate a household object, or product using your skill. There will be a prize for the most adventurous! So - make two nets in total, one to show your design & the other to be assembled into the finished product. Any problems, please do ask & if you need any card etc. I'm happy to supply that as well. Hint: If you're not sure, dismantle any packaging into it's flat, 2D net - then, use that knowledge for your own one.
Due in Monday 16th May 2016 - this will be used for your Literacy work ALL week.
We will be looking at the art of persuasion... By the end of the week you will have to create a fully functioning advert for an unknown product - You will actually have the product on Thursday.
1. Choose 3 very successful adverts from any medium - newspaper, magazine, TV, radio etc.
2. Bring in a copy on paper to school. (If from the radio etc. then this will have to be written down)
3. The pictures are not that important, the text / words / writing is.
4. Highlight what YOU consider to be the key points that have convinced / persuaded you to buy / choose this product.
5. write a small paragraph on each advert stating why it is successful.
Year 6: You will use your new blue files to look at questions you may have answered incorrectly and revise the subject so that you are clear and can correctly answer the type of question next time.
Year 5: You will have been given targets by Mrs Skilton to improve your work - use these and revise what you have been asked to learn.
Do take a minute to watch this.
If it could be repeated with animals, would we actually have extinction?
In literacy we are planning our persuasive letters, your homework task is to prepare for this. Whatever you prepare will be used in class from Monday 14th March (incidentally, this is when the homework is due in...)
You know your subjects already, we have discussed this in class extensively, so I won't waste time here. Imagine if I wished to write a persuasive letter about the decline in numbers of the rare Stowting flying hamster... I'd need to think about the following when preparing my letter:
So... Be precise; be accurate; collect your facts for arguing your point; be polite and use the correct level of formal language; be concise - nobody likes waffle. (Remember - this homework is NOT to write your letter, it is to provide you with the ammunition and facts you will need for a stunning letter - YES, you can do this.)
You may plan/prepare in any format you deem useful - THIS IS TO HELP YOU - not me. You will use your work to provide the foundation to your writing on Monday and please remember... There is no excuse for not bringing it in - YOU will be the only person to suffer if you forget. However, prepare/plan well & your work in class will be a breeze.
Finally, if in doubt, ask! (I may hysterically laugh a lot, but after I've calmed down I'm happy to do so.)
