to read the x axis first and then the y axis. Along the corridor and up the stairs is a good way to remember co-ordinate order.

Lightning never strikes twice, does it?
That was the question that occupied their frightened minds as they crouched, huddling together, next the pile of dusty sacks in the base of the windmill…
Use these questions to help you plan your story:
Why are they thinking about that particular question at the beginning of the story starter? What meaning does the question have?
Who is it inside the windmill? Have they been inside the windmill before?
Is the windmill a good place to shelter from the storm?
What might happen next?
How might the characters inside the windmill be feeling?

Topic - History
During our learning on the Indus Valley we learnt that Charles Masson was the first explorer to discover the ruins at Harappa. We also learnt that he drew pictures and wrote about what he saw as part of a book he wrote.
Try to image what he might have seen and use a page in your Home Learning Journal to design a page from his book showing what he saw and describing some of the ruins.
