Your Homework for next week is:
Numeracy: Complete the worksheet given on Friday with conversions of fractions to percentages.
Literacy: Considering our learning outcomes during this Anti-Bulling week and our focus on Cyber-bullying, reflect on the phrase ‘Think before you send’ and consider the impact of and emojis when communicating.😃
- Discuss with your family or a friend at home: What happens when we send without thinking? Why do people need to remind themselves to think before sending or clicking? Make sure you give some strong reasons for your answers. Be ready to feed back in class on Monday.
- Then, use the template with the emojis you were given and investigate, explore their meanings. In your Homework book write a report about emojis (organise your information in paragraphs following the questions below): What do we use emojis for? Do we all use them in the same way or do different groups use them for different reasons? Do older/younger people you know understand emojis in the same way as you do? Why do we use them? (Secret code? Communicating quickly?) Are they a good or bad thing? How can they be used for good/misused for bad purposes? What should we remember when we are quickly sending emojis to people?
Use the blank emoji sheet to draw your own, either ones you know and use, or some you have made up. Can you explain what do your emojis mean?
Have a lovely weekend!! 🙂
