# Thursday

Yesterday we continued reading Mulan. We reached the part where Mulan has returned to her home with a troop of soldiers.

Open up Thursday’s powerpoint and pages to read in the Resources section below:

•  Pages to read (Thursday 4.3.21)

Read through the instructions - they will guide you through the activities you are going to do when you have read today’s pages (p.29-32)

We have also created an online lesson guiding you through each stage of the reading process. Click on the link below and it will take you straight to it:

Writing:

Yesterday we learned how to write an exciting opening to a story when we re-tell it.  We do this so that the person reading our story is interested and wants to read more!

Today we are going to carry on writing our re-telling of Mulan. We are going to learn how to write an exciting build-up to the main event of the story (when Mulan joins the Emperor’s army).

Go to the Writing Resources at the end of this section and open up this document:

Computing

Today in computing we are learning about fake emails. It is important that we are able to identify genuine and fake emails.

Click the link below and decide whether the news is fake or real:

You may receive fake emails to:

• Try and access your computer or your email account and take information.
• To trick you into sending personal information which might allow them to access your bank accounts or other important personal data. When someone sends an email trying to trick you into giving them personal information, it’s called ‘phishing’. The culprit is literally phishing for your information.
• Some fake emails just want to send more fake emails to your friends to cause annoyance and frustration.

Here are some clues to  help you look out for fake emails:

• Email addresses that aren’t spelt right, e.g. me@mysch00l.com – the letter o has been replaced with a zero so that it still looks like it’s spelt right.
• Spelling mistakes within the email, such as “How RU?”
• Not calling you by your real name or using your full name too often.
• Too good to be true: fake emails can offer a free gift, a prize, or lots of money, usually so that they can trick you into sending them money, or installing a virus onto your computer.
• Attachments or links that come without explanation. Sometimes an email will look like it comes from your friend, but the scammer is ‘spoofing’ their email account so that the email pretends to be from your friend. Often these emails have a link to click on which downloads a virus to your computer or email account. Even worse, your friend might have accidentally clicked on a dodgy link which has allowed the hacker to send emails from their account.
