On Friday, you should have started developing your paragraphs using connectives.
Here is a reminder of some of the connectives you could use:
however, therefore, furthermore, although, on the other hand.
Today's lesson is more time for you to develop more paragraphs which will form the main section of your letter.
Firstly, I want to draw your attention to the devastating waste we produce in the UK. Figures show that we dispose of 68 million tonnes of waste every year. This is certainly something we must change. However, not all packaging can be recycled as only 3% of packaging can be used again.
In the UK, we have a kerbside recycling collection which is beginning to reduce how much waste we dump into landfills and this scheme encourages the British public to recycle more. Therefore, if this collection was done more frequently, it would have a greater impact on reducing the waste piling up high as mountains in landfill sites. Furthermore, waste that ends up in landfill takes many years to decompose. Landfills are a major source of pollution, causing greenhouse gasses which is extremely dangerous for the environment.
This week I am going to be uploading a selection of '60 second reads' to develop your fluency when reading. I would like you to time yourself and see how many words you can read in 60 seconds.
After you have read the text, there are questions for you to answer.
SAVE YOUR RECYCLING!! (You will need this for a future D.T lesson)
WALT: generate ideas using research.
What makes a good reusable object?
For our D.T unit, we are going to be designing and making our very own upcycled object using materials which might often throw away. We know waste is a huge problem in the UK and know it is important to reduce the waste we produce. Our D.T will look at how we can turn 'rubbish' into something that we can use again as something else.
Today's lesson is a research based lesson. I want you to have a look out there to see what other people have made with their recycling. At the end of the lesson, I'd like you to have a really good idea of some things you would like to make at home.
Create a brainstorm with all of the ideas you have for what you would make.
Here are some links to kick start your research. There are lots of ideas out there so please feel free to search your own too.
