Having spoken to a few of you and your parents today, I know quite a few people would like to mark their maths papers. I will put the mark schemes on our page, so that you can mark your own work if you would like to. If you do this and find there are some areas you need to work on, have a look on the Bitesize website where there are lots of revision and learning tools for all different areas of maths (as well as other subjects). It's a good opportunity for you to work on things that are personal to your own targets. I will of course still take the papers from you when we return to school and look through them myself.
We would normally have PE today, so make sure you take some time to get active. If you didn't enjoy the Joe Wicks video the other day, there are some fantastic videos on GoNoodle - these include stretching, dancing and workout routines to music. You can create an account for free, ask you parents to help you do this if you would like to see even more videos. If you would prefer not to create an account there are some videos on the link below, we really enjoyed the 'Jump, squat, turn around' video in class.
Take a look at the pages below and then complete pages 125 and 126 in your workbook.
1cm = 10mm
1m = 100cm
There is a ruler in everybody's home learning pack to support you with page 126 in your workbook.
We are continuing to focus on Castle Midnight today. Read the opening to the narrative again (below) and think carefully about the Master: what does he/she look like? How do they behave? What makes them so formidable?
(If somebody is formidable they are somebody who is quite scary, you wouldn't want to argue with them!)
Your task today is to write a character description of the Master.
Steps to success
Use show not tell sentences to engage your reader (use his behaviour to show me what he's like, instead of just telling me what he's like)
Vary your sentence structures, including use of speech - the way a person talks and what they say can teach us lots about them
Use a range of adjectives, verbs and adverbs
It was the dead of night.
All that could be heard was the muffled beating of the creature’s enormous wings as it soared through the inky-black sky. Behind it, at the end of a frayed length of rope, sat the coachman. Coat wrapped tightly around his broad shoulders, his mission tonight was a straightforward one: to escort the two strangers to Castle Midnight. It all seemed straightforward to him. Even if it wasn’t, he always did as the Master bade. No one ever dared to disobey the Master, especially on a night such as this…
Think about the characters Skye and Shawn from Edge of Extinction. Explain how those characters are similar and how they are different. Consider their backgrounds, their behaviour and attitudes, what they're good at and whether they take risks or are more cautious.
Don't forget about your home readers, you should spend around 15 minutes each day (at least) reading.
Set yourself a goal for next week and write a plan for how you are going to achieve that goal. In your writing explain why you think that goal is important and what you hope to achieve (Is it learning a new skill, helping others to feel good, becoming healthier? There are lots of reasons to set goals, what is your reason? Your reason cannot be that I told you to do it)
Some ideas for different goals:
Read two whole books
Learn a new dance routine
Write a story
Do something kind for somebody else each day
