Good morning everybody, I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your home learning
You'll all be pleased to know that I did the Joe Wicks PE video this morning as promised, I hope some of you did too!
My TT Rockstars name is Kat Zevon, but I think I also come up as Miss Dignan on the 'Teachers' section - make sure to challenge me! Libby has beaten me by one point: i'm not impressed at all and obviously need to work on my speed (I've been practising today and am already getting quicker). I am however very impressed that every single one of you has been on TTRockstars this week! I have sent a few of you a challenge (go to the Multiplayer Rockslam section to find them) and will send more, so keep an eye out for those. Your current tournament ends today at 11.54 am, make sure you earn as many coins as possible before then, so that your team stands a chance! I will announce your next tournament on Thursday morning.
You are doing a brilliant job and I'm looking forward to catching up with you over the next few days and hearing how your work is going.
Please complete the final test from your pack (Paper 3: Reasoning). You can take as long as you need to complete it.
We are continuing with our work around Castle Midnight. Today i'd like you to write a setting description of what you can see in the image: the castle, the water and the night sky should all be included in your description. Remember, you do have your writing mats to support you with any grammar and punctuation questions you may have.
Use figurative language to describe the setting (Can you remember the seven different types?)
Use a range of sentence structures: longer, multi clause sentences to add detail; short sentences to create tension; relative clauses; fronted adverbials
Use commas, dashes or brackets for parenthesis
Challenge: How many types of figurative language can you use? Pop your number in the comments section on the register tomorrow.
Choose a character from the book you are currently reading. Draw a picture of that character and surround the image with lots of language to describe them.
Top Tip: choose the antagonist (the bad guy) from your story and your vocabulary might help you with tomorrow's writing task.
Sketch a picture of something that you can see around you right now. It could be a person or an object. I know you have done some fantastic work with shading this year, make sure I can see that in your artwork!
