Writing

PLEASE FINISH ALL WRITING tasks before moving on to Reading even if it takes longer than the timetable suggests.  

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

Answer the following questions for the paragraph below: 

  1. What are the two openers that are used? 
  2. What is their argument? 
  3. What are the supporting details? 

Firstly, children are able to develop many skills often learnt at school from television. For example, Play School and Sesame Street are just some of the popular children’s shows that teach numeracy and literacy skills. In addition to this, children are able to watch programs, which dramatize classic children’s fiction. “Misery Guts” by Morris Gleitzman, is currently being viewed by children throughout Australia. Not only do they learn about the world around them, but they are also introduced to some great authors and literature.  

You are now going to write your own argument paragraphs for the topic we started yesterday: Every family should own a pet. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN RED TO WRITE YOUR 3 BODY PARAGRAPHS! This will go  

underneath your introduction from yesterday in your OneNote, Remote Learning-Writing-Week 3-Persuasive page. 

  1. When introducing your arguments start each paragraph with an opener. You can come up with your own or use the list from below.  

Paragraph Openers: 

  • Firstly, Secondly, Thirdly 
  • Certainly, 
  • Specifically, 
  • Obviously, 
  • It’s obvious that 
  • Clearly, 
  • It’s crystal clear that 

Openers for the second paragraph: 

  • Futhermore, 
  • Also, 
  • Likewise, 
  • Similarly, 
  • In addition, 

Openers for the third paragraph: 

  • Finally, 
  • Lastly, 

Certainly,  

  1. Now that you have your opener, you can finish the sentence by writing your argument. Remember to make it STRONG!! That means NO opinion words such as I like, I believe, I hate… 

Certainly, mobile phones are necessary to have in case of an emergency. 

  1. To introduce your supporting details and evidence, start with a details opener. Again you can use the list below or come up with your own. Once you’ve got your opener you can add in your supporting details.   

Supporting evidence can include: 

  • Examples 
  • Statistics (you can research a statistic that matches your argument) 
  • Expert opinion (eg: something a professor, doctor, … has said – you can research this) 

REMEMBER Only ONE argument per paragraph. The supporting details and evidence should just be about the same argument. In this paragraph, the supporting details in yellow gives you an example of when you might be in an emergency and would need a mobile phone – it adds extra information to the SAME argument. 

Certainly, mobile phones are necessary to have in case of an emergency. For instance, if you fall down a flight of stairs in a building and you are badly injured it is good to have a mobile phone on hand to use. You never know when you might need to make an emergency phone call so it’s vital to have a mobile phone with you. 

Details: 

  • For example 
  • In fact 
  • For instance 
  • In support of this 
  • It is certain 
  • Not only 
  1. You can now repeat these steps for your next two paragraphs.

Learning Intention: To use the order of operations (BODMAS) to solve equations.  

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: Watch the following video to learn about the order of operations: <<Order of Operations 2020.mp4>>

Step 2: Solve the equations in your maths book – show your working out for each step.  

Solve the following equations using the order of operations (BODMAS):
