Welcome to Monday!

Spellings: Rule 24: able/ible and ably/iby suffixes

Use the powerpoint below to explore when to use the suffixes able or ible for adjectives, and ably or ibly for adverbs. Can children explain the rule for how to choose which suffix to use?

English:

For English this week, we will be looking at a 'Just So Story' by Rudyard Kipling and using it to inspire our own writing. Today, please watch this video which is based on the 'Just So Story' of how the elephant got his trunk.

Science: Make your own digestive system

Time to get creative and messy…. Last half term you learned about the digestive system and what happens to our food when we eat it. Now is your chance to make a model of your digestive system.

You will need to read and follow the instructions carefully in the pdf below. Some of the items you won't have at home, so think carefully about what you could replace them with. Do you have recycling that you could cut and shape? You can use absolutely anything you have at home, this is just a guide to help you with each stage.

Take some photos (or draw diagrams) of each stage and write/ video yourself talking a short explanation to go with each stage to describe what part of the digestive system is at work and how it is breaking down the food. Try to include some scientific vocabulary in your explanation.

Can you add step 8, to describe what happens to the solid mass left in the large intestine?
