True or False
What does it mean if something is true?
If a statement is true, this means it is correct and the statement is accurate. For example, the statement 'Sea otters hold hands when they sleep so they don't drift away from each other' is true (and interesting). All facts (like we learnt about last week) are true.
What does it mean if something is false?
If a statement is false, this means it is not correct and the statement is wrong or a lie. For example, the statement 'Miss Hobbs has three legs' is false.
Task: Take the true or false quiz below based on Chapter 4 of Journey to the River Sea. Then, create your own true to false quiz for the rest of the class. Try to have a range of statements that are true and false to keep it interesting! I will post the quizzes on next week's weekly class page.
Journey to the River Sea
Here is the first half of CHAPTER FOUR that we read yesterday. Remember it is only up until, "But five minutes before the end of the lesson, something happened which changed her mood completely" on the Youtube clip
(0:00 - 17:46 on the Youtube clip)
Journey to the River Sea
TRUE or FALSE?
1. Mrs Carter did not let Maia work on her own and she had to keep learning Dr Bullman with the twins.
2. Maia pretends to be less intelligent than the twins by acting like she needs their help to spell simple words.
3. Maia visited Mr Carter in his office to see if he had an encyclopaedia she could borrow.
4. Mr Carter collects the glass eyeballs of famous and wealthy people.
5. Behind the Carters' house, there are small rivers and streams the Native Brazilians call igapes and they lead to Manaus.
6. When the twins and Maia go for their dancing lesson, Sergei asks Beatrice to dance with him.

Multiplying by 10 and 100
MULTIPLYING BY 10
What is 3 x 10?
What is 4 x 10?
What is 7 x 10?
Do you notice a pattern when we multiply by 10?
Every time we multiply a number by 10, all of the digits shift one place to the left. Even if the number is a decimal number. We always need to make sure that we use a 0 as a placeholder in the ones column if there are no decimals to shift to the left.
Can you use this trick to quickly multiply 374 x 10 quickly?
That's right! It is 3740 because all of the digits moved one position to the left and we used 0 as a placeholder in the ones column.
Can you use this trick to quickly multiply 45.3 x 10 quickly?
That's right! It is 453 because all of the digits moved one position to the left. We did not need to use a place holder because there was already a number to shift into the ones position (the 3 tenths).
MULTIPLYING BY 100
What is 3 x 100?
What is 4 x 100?
What is 7 x 100?
Do you notice a pattern when we multiply by 100?
Every time we multiply a number by 100, all of the digits shift two places to the left. Even if the number is a decimal number. We always need to make sure that we use a 0 as a placeholder in the ones and the tens columns if there are no decimals to shift to the left.
Can you use this trick to quickly multiply 374 x 100 quickly?
That's right! It is 37400 because all of the digits moved two positions to the left and we used 0 as a placeholder in the ones column and in the tens column.
Can you use this trick to quickly multiply 45.3 x 100 quickly?
That's right! It is 4530 because all of the digits moved two positions to the left. We needed to use a placeholder in the ones column because there were no more decimals to shift into the ones column.
Watch this Youtube clip to revise what we just learnt.
Task: Complete the work below. All students should be able to do Blue work (level 1). The pink work (Level 2) is for students who would like to challenge themselves with work that is a bit more difficult. If you finish Pink work and would like a super challenge, you can try Yellow work (Level 3)
Blue work (Level 1)
Pink work (Level 2)
Yellow work (Level 3) - Only to be completed if you have finished all of Pink work and would like an extra challenge.
You may either:
- Write your answers to each question on a piece of paper and send me a photo of your work
- Print the work, write your answers on the printed page and send me a photo of your work
- Type the answers to each question in an email and send it to me
Please email the work to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fun Activity - Moving Dancer Origami
This video will teach you how to make a dancer that 'moves' using origami!
You can use any piece of scrap paper in your house. It is a fun activity that will help you develop fine motor skills (finger skills) and your ability to follow and remember instructions.
You might even want to make a routine for your origami dancer to move to some music! Try out some stop motion animation apps like 'Stop Motion Studio' or the 'Time Lapse' feature on an iPhone/iPad to create an animation of your origami dancer.
Send me a picture or video of your origami dancer to email@example.com
