Eagles Class Pre-Learning Page
Welcome to the Eagles Pre-Learning page. This page will have lots of useful videos and other resources that will support your learning in the classroom.
What is Pre-learning?
Pre-learning is a very useful way of learning at home before the lesson in school. This will mean that you will arrive at the lesson with lots of knowledge already and will have a clear idea of what you know already and what you will need to focus on in the lesson. It is important to look at the pre-learning resource carefully, taking good notes or putting together a text map that you can then bring into school the next day. If you do your pre-learning well, it will give you confidence and also a clear idea of what you need to learn back in school.
Useful video to help with ordering fractions - 20th January 2017
In lessons, we have been looking at equivalent fractions and decimals and how we can use this knowledge to help us put fractions in order of size. Once you get the hang of it it becomes really straight forward - just remember it is all about your times tables! This video is very useful to explain how to do it and shows you what is happening!
Science Recap and Pre-learning: Classification and Carl Linnaeus
For the homework set on 6th January 2017
Click on the picture below to go to the classification video on the BBC Bitesize website. The video recaps the learning that we did in our science lesson on living things and the 5 KIngdoms of Life.
Don't forget that once you have watched the video, you need to present your notes in an memorable way that will help you to remember the key information.
Your work must include some more facts about Carl Linnaeus that you have researched yourself. This will get you ready for our second classification lesson next week! The poster below will hopefully get you started but find out some facts for yourself aswell!

SPAG Help Mat!
This is a super revision mat that explains all of the new vocabulary that you will need to know for May. I recommend going through the mat and rating each 'station' with how confident you feel about it. We can then look at this in SPAG revision sessions in school.
