Good morning little aliens! :)
I hope you enjoyed the workbook yesterday. Today I have two tasks I would like you to do:
1. 'What do the words mean?': You will need to read the text again which you can find in the document below, I would like you to identify any words you don't understand and find their definition. If you really want to knock Miss Kleinman's socks off- you could use them in a few sentences.
2. 'Alien Comprehension': A set of quick comprehension questions about the text- easy and simple.
Both tasks can be found on page 6 of the document. Remember to present your work neatly- handwriting should be beautiful and a joy to look at. Take your time and do the best that you can do. Really show off and show Miss K why you are the top alien in the class!
How fast can aliens run?
What does candyarian mean?
Where do aliens like to sleep?
Which word in the text means the same as investigating?
What is the name of the smallest alien species?
Aliens have soft skin. True or false?
What type of food might be on an alien’s shopping list?
Why might aliens scare humans?
Why might you have an alien in your class if you spot someone doing extremely well in maths tests?
Today we are going to be multiplying 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers. Watch the video below and then answer the questions on the sheet.
Well done to all of those who yesterday were able to decipher the message on the Mirror of Erised.
It read: Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi.
When you write this backwards: ishow no tyo urfac ebu tyo urhe arts desire.
When you sort the letters out it reads: I show not your face but your hearts desire.
This was a cipher: A way of writing to hide the intended message. Ciphered messages are used in the muggle world too!
Can you think of a period in history where ciphered messages were used? WW2! Today you are going to practice code breaking and deciphering secret messages. Good Luck.
