Today, we are going to look at nets. A net of a 3d shape is what it would look like if it was opened out. You need to imagine what they would look like if it was folded back up to the 3d shape. Have a look at this website to understand more about nets:
When you have done this, have a look at the nets given below! The best way to understand nets is to have a go making them and seeing how they become the 3d shape again. If you can, print these out and cut them out to create the net. Fold it back together and see what shape it makes!
If you can't, don't worry! You can draw them out on a piece of paper and then cut them up and do the same thing.
I have put lots of different examples up! Don't think you have to try them all! Just try a few different ones. Try to picture what the shape will look like from the net before you put it back together. This will help you tomorrow!
Challenge: If you want to, have a go at some test questions relating to nets. Can you work them out! I will post the answers as well so you can check your own work.
For English today, we are going to look at ellipsis. This is the three dots … you may have seen in books used at the end of a sentence. It can be used to show a word or words that have been removed from a quote. It can create suspense by adding a pause before the end of a sentence and it can be used to show the trailing off of a thought. For example:
Have a look at this website to help you if you are not sure! https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/zpgjy4j
When you have done this, please write 8 sentences of your own using ellipsis somewhere in the sentence! Be as creative as you can. Make them nice and mysterious!
Please watch the word of the week video: Ascension.
Please have a go at the reflection for this. When you have done this, have a look again at the story of the ascension. This is when Jesus ascended into heaven to be with God. I would like you to retell this story in any way you like. What other piece of scripture is Jesus making a link to here? What is Jesus preparing us for? Think about the reference to the Holy Spirit coming. Research this event that is coming up on the 31st May 2020.
Remember I love seeing your work and the fun things you are doing! Keep sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org
REMEMBER if you haven’t already: Yearbook
We are really hoping to be able to get a Yearbook put together for you all to remember your time at St Joseph’s. We will try everything we can to do this! To do this, I need some information about you all to put in the Yearbook.
There is a document below to fill in but all I really need to know if what your ambition is for the future e.g. what you would like to do for a job or career when you grow up and what your favourite memory of St Joseph’s is!
Please have a think about these and email this document or just the answer to these two questions to email@example.com
You could drop it off at school if you live nearby and can’t email this. To do this, please just leave it in the foyer of school so there is no contact between you and the members of staff and children in school for everyone’s safety. If you can’t do this, you could ring school and tell the answers to these to a member of staff who will write these down and pass them on. Please try the other methods if possible though.
