Literacy

L.O. I am learning to create tension in my story to describe what goes wrong.

Today you will be taking one of the ideas from your dilemma mind map yesterday and building on the idea to create a first draft of a suspense paragraph. Watch the video attached, which shows a model paragraph with a selection of descriptive features you can use in your work.

## Literacy

L.O. I am learning to make notes on how to perform a poem.

Watch the clip below from Michael Rosen. He tells you how to perform a poem. Today, you will make notes on your Foreign Lands poem you looked at yesterday, on how you would like to perform your poem. Tomorrow, you will practise your poem using these notes.

You don't have to print off your poem, you can write it out to write your notes on, or use what you had yesterday as it is the same poem.

Class story

In school an adult will read to you for approximately 15 minutes a day. We have chosen to read to you Harry Potter, a well known children's story, with Bloomsbury's permission.

## Thursday Class Story

Maths- Starter

Go through the slides on the mental maths ppt. You are given 45 seconds for each questions and can use a pencil and paper to help you do workings out. The answers are on the slide at the end.

## Mental Maths

L.O. I am learning what prime numbers and prime factors are.

You have learned about prime numbers and factors before. Today you are going to learn how to find the prime factors of a number, using factor trees. Watch the video attached to show you how to do this and then complete the worksheets attached. Don't be scared by some of the technical language on the video; just watch what is happening on the screen and it will seem a lot easier to follow.
