2) What is the sign that Count Olaf is going to get angry?

3) Why do you think Count Olaf has asked Justice Strauss to play a part in the play? He said it was to be “neighbourly”, do you think this is true? Make a prediction as to what her role could be.

Today we are carrying on with division that involves more than one exchange within a calculation. You will use the same process as yesterday but today we are working with 4-digit numbers.

Watch the tutorial video below, follow carefully and work through the example when instructed to pause the video. Make sure you have followed the correct process before moving onto the questions on the PowerPoint. Mark your work afterwards using the separate PowerPoint.

 

 

 

11:00-11:15 Break

Show (creating)

LO: To show how direct speech can be used to develop a storyline.

SC1. I can explain what direct speech is.

SC2. I can use the correct punctuation when writing direct speech.

SC3. I can demonstrate my understanding by writing a conversation between characters. 

SC4. I can use alternative words for “said”.

 

In today’s guided reading, Count Olaf has revealed what the children’s roles will be in his play. For today’s writing, I would like you to continue the discussion between Count Olaf and the children. To be able to write this discussion you will need to consider:

1) What will the children say to the Count and how will he respond?

2) How will the children and Count Olaf speak to each other? What will the tone of the conversation be?

3) What will the outcome of the discussion be?

 

When writing direct speech, you must:

1) Spend 10 minutes planning the tone of your speech and key vocabulary.

2) Remember the punctuation rules of direct speech.

 3) Use precise vocabulary. Once you have finished your writing you must challenge yourself by checking that you have used appropriate vocabulary. Use the adjective and verb word mats to help you.

4) A year 5 expectation is that you check your spellings, punctuation and use neat handwriting.

5) Challenge yourself in your writing. You should evaluate your work and ask if you can make it even better.

If you wish to  recap how to use direct speech, you can watch the video from Wednesday's lesson.:

 

 

To help you with today’s task I have included a word mats and a video.

As this weekend is the RSPB’s Big Garden Bird Watch I thought we could combine it with our Friday afternoon activity. We are going to be using the link below to create an image of a bird and it will be translated to music. In addition, you can use the piano playing link to create a piece of music that you thinks might represent how a bird sings or how it moves. You can record your images/pieces of music and send them through with your work.
You may want to choose a bird that you see in your garden or one from the pictures below.

For the bird drawing, follow this link:
Chrome Music Lab - Kandinsky (chromeexperiments.com)

For the piano playing, follow this link:
Shared Piano - Chrome Music Lab (chromeexperiments.com)

If you wish to take part in the Big Garden Bird Watch at home, you can pick any 1-hour time slot over the whole weekend, from today to Sunday. I have attached a number of documents at the bottom of the page that will help you and you can then submit your results online.
