Writing - Shakespeare: Macbeth

This section of your work will be an extended write and you will have today and tomorrow's writing time to complete it. Throughout the week you have learnt how to write a playscript. I would now like you to chose another section of the play and this time write it as a script including all of the features as you go along. If you need help you can remind yourself with your booklet from Monday's lesson, the key features list at the bottom of the page or the video clip we used earlier in the week.

Green and Yellow - Include complex and compound sentences in your setting descriptions and figurative language - use the check list at the bottom of the page to ensure you include all the key features.

Orange and Red - Include figurative language in your setting description - use the check list at the bottom of the page to ensure you include all the key features.

Blue - Include adjectives and adverbs (quickly, slowly, happily) to describe how things look and move - use the check list at the bottom of the page to ensure 


Maths - Measuring: 

Green Yellow  Orange and Red - Area. What is area? If perimeter is the distance around the edges of a shape, what could area be? Think of how you use the word area, when you play games for example. This video here can help jog your memory. You can then find your lesson here. Your sheet will be found below. 

Blue - Today you are using lengths to solve problems. You need to think about how to work out how tall something is. So if 2 objects are on top of each other the total height is the height of each object added together. Your lesson can be found here. Your sheet is in the document section below. 


Foundation - Geography: Ocean Biomes.

LC: Can you describe the location and features of marine biomes?
I can locate marine biomes.
I can find interesting facts about marine biomes
I can explain types of animals and marine biomes that can be found.

Ocean biomes refer to all areas under the 5 main oceans of the world - they are areas of saline (salt water).

This biome - like the rainforest - is split into vertical layers, but this time by the amount of sunlight and depth. 

Today you will need to know this vocabulary:

  • Plankton - food made by photosynthesis
  • Photosynthesis - process of plants making energy and growing using sunlight. 

Use the video here and the information below to make a detailed diagram of the ocean's layers. Refer to features such as the amount of sunlight it receives, the depth of the water in this layer and the animals that call this layer their home.

Also can you name all the oceans of the world?


Story Time - The Graveyard Book - by Neil Gaiman

Listen to my favourite author read one of his spooky tales here. You can listen to 10mins each day or in blocks of how much time you prefer. We will listen to chapter 1 this week. I hope you enjoy it, let me know how you find it.
