Friday 27th March
Write a 5 minute diary entry of what you did yesterday but instead of sticking to the truth, tell at least 3 crazy lies! Did you see anything odd? Did you do anything dangerous? Did you discover something extraordinary? Use your imagination and have fun!
Continue your story, picking up from where you left off yesterday (make sure you re-read it first to remind yourself of where you got up to and to get into the flow). Look back at your plot matrix and make sure you are drawing your ideas together cohesively. Make sure you are using descriptive phrases to spark your reader’s imagination and think about the tension you wish to create. Ask yourself some important questions: does this story sound good when you read it? Are you hooked in by what you’ve read? Do you want to know what happens next? If the answer is ‘Yes’ then great… if it is ‘No’ then what can you do to improve it and make it a more interesting read? You have all of the skills, now use them to write a great story.
Maths: Open your green Maths pack and read the questions carefully, complete the Arithmetic Paper from Set A. Take care with your number formation, number transfer, place value, decimal places and remember to always put the answers in the answer boxes! Don’t forget to use a written method to solve the more complex problems – this will help you to avoid silly errors.
Science: Now you have designed your own species write a description of your amazing discovery in postcard form. Make sure you name your new species, use lots of descriptive vocabulary and effective expanded noun phrases to detail your animal to a friend. If you want to, you could draw a ‘family’ of this new animal. Be sure to give them an appropriate family name – google ‘collective nouns for animals’ and see if you can come up with a collective name of your own.
