We are going to expand our persuasive language vocabulary by looking at the suffixes -er and -est.
Once you have watched the lesson have a go at one of the worksheets below! Once you have completed a worksheet its your turn to use persuasive writing. Pick your favourite animal and write a paragraph explaining why your animal is the best in the animal kingdom. Remember to use the vocabulary you have just practised.
Watch lesson 2: 'Subtract 2 mixed numbers'
(watch again if you're not feeling sure). Once you're ready, tackle today's worksheet!
Create your own marble run!
Your task is to make a marble run that takes exactly 20 seconds for the marble to reach the bottom. The video below should give you a lot of ideas on how to construct your run.
You could use:
- Blue tack
- Lollypop sticks
- Anything you can think of!
Remember: Adding friction will slow the marble
If you don't have a marble you can use anything small and ball shaped!
If you aren't able to build your maze today draw a plan of your maze instead, label all the features that will help slow the marble.
