LO: to read and write decimal numbers


Today’s lesson is a continuation of yesterday’s learning.  You need to complete the In Focus question today and then make sure that you, as you have previously done, work your way competently through the lesson making sure that you have solid understanding of how to read and write the different examples of decimals.  As you will see, I have continued to include the answers to the Let’s Learn and Guided Practice.  Make sure you have an understanding of how the answer has been found – don’t just look at the answer or you won’t be able to successfully complete the workbook.  The workbook questions are an extension of yesterday’s – they have missed out the step of adding the tenths, hundredths and thousands and your challenge is to do this yourself.  As always, any problems or questions email me.   Answer the workbook questions and then have a go at the challenge.  Please email me your work today.


LO: to write a version of The Dreamgiver


Following on from yesterday’s story mountain you will be retelling the story in your own words.  Watch the film again, but most importantly you will need to use your story mountain to support your writing.  I expect five detailed paragraphs of writing (one for each box on your story mountain – don’t include the headings for each paragraph).  Use your character description of the Dreamgiver which you wrote on Monday to develop the character.  The feedback I gave you on this will help you write the first paragraph when the Dreamgiver first appears.  Expand on the bullet points that you wrote yesterday.  Use descriptive language and rich vocabulary.  Include expanded noun phrases to make your writing exciting.  For example … Quietly and carefully, the old wooden slatted window was opened by a strange creature who fluttered gently in the breeze.  Here I have used three adjectives to describe the noun and then I have up-levelled my expanded noun phrase by including a prepositional phrase.  Remember what I say in class – when you write a noun don’t forget it’s adjective partner to describe it.   


The Vampire Quest – Chapter Three


If you haven’t read the previous chapters, you will need to do this before starting today’s lesson.

LO: to recreate a cityscape water reflection


For our Art lessons within our Theme of Water we will be focusing on cityscapes.  Cityscapes are an artistic representation, such as a painting, drawing, print or photograph, of the physical aspects of a city or urban area. It is the urban equivalent of a landscape.  Think of it as the opposite of a landscape drawing where you would illustrate natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers, and forests.  Today, you will looking at how artists have created reflections of cityscapes in the water.  Look through the slides as we would do in class and then today your task is to recreate a reflective cityscape.  Click on the link to see the different examples of reflective water cityscapes.  Choose one that you would like to recreate.  You can present your work in either crayon, felt tip or paint.  I look forward to seeing your artistic creations – please send your art to me today.
