Week 11 - 22.06.20

Friday 26th June

English

LI: to write character profiles

 

Today, is our last day using our image of 'mythical beasts' that we have been using all week.  Today, you are tasked with writing character profiles. 

 

Challenge A - one character profile

Challenge B - write 2 character profiles for a dragon, however they must be opposite. e.g. Their personalities, appearance, hobbies and mood. 

 

Today, you are going to produce character descriptions for the dragons below. What you will have to do, is describe them, using a range of adjectives. However, for this to be challenging and age appropriate, you will have to consider how you will create your character profile using full sentences, so that you produce a descriptive paragraph. Attached - on the Power Points - are different examples of HOW your work should look when you are finished, the language and structure. 

Be creative and imaginative – there are no wrong ideas.

What to include;-

Their mood

Their body features and what they do e.g. long sharp claws. What can they do with them?

Their personality e.g. cunning, mischievous, and why

What do they enjoy eating?

What do they enjoy to do in the day and night?

It is our weekly maths challenge. It has been great to see so many children sharing their answers and strategies to these questions and pushing themselves as far as possible. The target is to complete the first 6, but have a go at the other questions and see how much of your knowledge you can use.

Our Word of the Day 1

Maths - Dividing decimals by 10, 100 and 1000.

 

Dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 is the same as multiplying, the only key difference is the digits will move to the right rather than the left. A good way of checking that your answers are right is to ensure your digits are all still next to each other, just in a different place value.

LI: to use a range of sentence types

 Below, you will find an attachment for a range of different ‘Alan Pete’ sentences. Read them carefully; each page explains what each sentence is and examples of how to use them.

 

Using the image we have focused on so far this week, you are going to use these sentences to produce a short story. On the word document, I have started your story for you. My question to you is ‘What happens next?’  You can only write a maximum of 400 words. Sometimes having a limit on our word count can make the task even more challenging. I’m sure you can do it!

 

Challenge A – Use 2 different sentence types

Challenge B – Use 3 different sentence types

Challenge C – Use 4+ different sentence types

 

Not only are you tasked with using the Alan Pete sentences, but to also remember to include all sorts of writing skills you have developed. Alliteration, metaphors, similes, onomatopoeia, personification, parenthesis (brackets, commas and dashes).

When you’re finished – read through your story carefully checking for spelling mistakes, punctuation and capital letters.

You can produce a drawing to go with your short story.
