Writing

Read through all of the information about writing the conclusion, complete the activities in red as you go.  

Your conclusion paragraph will need to start with a conclusion opener, restate the side you are arguing, summarise the arguments in different words and you will need to include a call to action!   

In conclusion, mobiles phones have now become a necessary part of our everyday life. Instant communication will ensure that information can be passed on with a simple press of a button whether it is to do with business, personal information or in an emergency. The time is now, don’t be left behind or wait until you find yourself stuck in an emergency situation.

Put the answers in your OneNote: Remote Learning-Writing-Week 3-Thursday.  

Answer the following questions for BOTH of the conclusions below;  

  1. What is the issue? What side are they on? 
  2. What are their arguments? 
  3. What is their call to action? 

In summary, action needs to be taken to tackle the amount of litter on the school playground. There needs to be more accessible bins and teachers need to find ways to reward students who do the right thing for the environment. Teachers, help us with the war on rubbish in our playground NOW! 

In conclusion, it is obvious that Mother’s Day should be banned because it wastes money and it excludes many people. It is better to show your appreciation for someone every day rather than on a single day. Spoil your mother this Mother’s Day! 

Writing your own conclusion: 

Write this underneath your body paragraphs from yesterday in your OneNote: Remote Learning-Writing- Week 3- Persuasive Page.  

  1. Start with an opener, you can choose one from the list below or come up with your own. 

Conclusion Openers: 

  • To conclude, 
  • In conclusion, 
  • Overall, 
  • As you can see, 
  • On the whole, 
  • Undoubtedly, 

In conclusion, 

  1. Now that you have your opener, restate the issue and which side you are on. (check your introduction to make sure you aren’t using exactly the same words) 

In conclusion, mobiles phones have now become a necessary part of our everyday life. 

  1. List your arguments using different wording and DO NOT INTRODUCE ANY NEW ARGUMENTS!!! 

In conclusion, mobiles phones have now become a necessary part of our everyday life. Instant communication will ensure that information can be passed on with a simple press of a button whether it is to do with business, personal information or in an emergency. 

  1. Finish with a call to action.  

Watch this youtube clip explaining how to use a ‘Call to Action’.  

Let your audience know exactly what you want them to do by encouraging an immediate response. Think about who your audience is and what you want them to do at the end of reading your piece of writing.  

The best call to action phrases are brief, use STONG verbs and they speak directly to the reader. 

In conclusion, mobiles phones have now become a necessary part of our everyday life. Instant communication will ensure that information can be passed on with a simple press of a button whether it is to do with business, personal information or in an emergency. The time is now, don’t be left behind or wait until you find yourself stuck in an emergency situation.

Success Criteria: I understand why we need to use the order of operations. 

        I can explain the meaning of BODMAS.  

        I can use the order of operations to correctly solve equations involving all four operations and brackets.  

Task Instructions: 

Step 1: Solve the equations, each answer will match a letter. (COMPLETE IN YOUR MATHS BOOK) 

Step 2: Rearrange (unscramble) the letters to find a type of animal.

Animal #1 – 

  1. 4 + 4 x 4 = 
  2. 7 + 3 x 7 – 10 = 
  3. 4 x (3 + 2) – 20 ÷ 2 – 1 =  
  4. (10 + 3 x 10) ÷ 8 = 
  5. 40 – (3 x 9 + 6) =  

Animal #2 –  

  1. 2 x (5 + 6 x 5) – 100 ÷ 2 =  
  2. 50 – 3 x 6 – 2 x 7 =  
  3. 5 + 21 ÷ 7 – (4 + 2) = 
  4. 100 ÷ 5 – 2 x 8 – 3 =  
  5. 4 + 6 x 4 – 2 x (7 + 6) =  
  6. 3 x (27 ÷ 9 + 2) – (2 + 4) =  

Animal #3 –  

  1. 5 + 6 x 3 – 10 ÷ 5 =  
  2. 100 ÷ (1 + 4) – 3 x 5 =  
  3. 27 + 3 – 4 x 6 + (20 – 19) =  
  4. 8 x 2 + 7 – 63 ÷ 7 =
