Tuesday 7th September – Maths

How much money do I have?

I am learning to count money.

I know I can do it when I can count the money given to me.

Today, you are going to pretend to be a bank.

A bank is a place that looks after people’s money and keeps it safe.

People at the bank need to know how to count money to make sure that they can give money back to the customers.  

Independent Task

I will be depositing a small amount of money into my bank account.

You will need to count the money I have given and tell me the total amount that I have deposited.

Download the document below or write the answers on a piece of paper.

Tuesday 7th September – Literacy

Persuasive Texts – Persuasive Language

I am learning to identify a variety of strategies and text types that can be used to persuade.

I know I can do it when I can identify the strategies and texts that are used and designed to persuade an audience.

Yesterday, we learnt that persuasive writing is used to convince you to think, feel or do something.

Watch/listen to the story ‘Eat Your Peas’ below. Think about what Daisy’s mum is trying to convince Daisy to do.

In the story ‘Eat Your Peas’, Daisy’s mum tries many ways to persuade her to eat her peas.

Making promises is not the only way that we can be convinced to do something though.

Everywhere we go, we see things that are trying to persuade us to do or buy something!

Today, we will learn about how people use special words and pictures to convince you to buy or do something.

Independent Task

Look at the images below.

All the pictures are advertisements.

They are all trying to convince to you buy or do something.

They use bright colours and choose special words to make you think their product is the best.

Which words are used in this advertisement to convince you to buy this drink?

Is this advertisement trying to convince you that straws are good or bad? How do you know?

Your task today is to make a list of words that people might use to convince you of something.

Some examples include:

  • Delicious
  • Amazing
  • Better than
  • You must
  • You need
  • Everybody loves

Can you write 10 other words that can be used to convince me to buy something?
