2) What was the only good thing about Count Olaf?

3) On page 32, the author writes the word “hate” in italics. Why do you think he does this? He also repeats this word several times. Why?

Guided Reading task:

In English, we have been learning about how we can describe a character using figurative language. When reading this chapter, what does the home of Count Olaf tell you about his character? You can create a mind map or write a short explanation. I would love to see some drawings of his home as well, with labels to show what Count Olaf has in his house.

 

To help you with your reading I have attached the audio for today’s lesson. This audio is for all of chapter one, so for today’s lesson you only need to listen up to 7 minutes and 24 seconds.

10:15-11:00 Maths

L.O. To understand the steps required to divide when the first digit is smaller than the divisor (3 digit ÷ 1-digit)
SC1: I can follow the bus-stop method
SC2: I can identify the divisor and the dividend
SC3: I can answer the questions

Today we are introducing a form of exchanging. The divisor is unable to go into the first digit of the dividend so you will need to group it with the next digit. 

Watch the tutorial to follow through the process and method of using the bus-stop method when we need to introduce a form of exchanging.

Once you have watched the video, work through the questions on the PowerPoint. If you are Challenge 2 you should be working through both extension questions and providing full reasoning. Mark your own work afterwards using the separate PowerPoint and correct any mistakes you have made.
