In today’s part of the story, the children discover that Count Olaf has discovered that they had visited Mr Poe. Use the text to help you answer the following questions:

1) Count Olaf always refers to the children as the “orphans”. What does this tell you about the character of Count Olaf and how he feels about the children?

2) The author often asks the reader of the book questions. At the start of this chapter, he asks you if you would be worried about Count Olaf serving you food. Why do you think the author creates questions for the reader?

3) Count Olaf often uses words incorrectly. What does this tell you about his character?

4) Count Olaf asks the children to participate in his next show. Predict what he might get them to do. Also, consider why he wants the children to participate. Based on his character, what could his plan be?

SC1: I can use the bus-stop method
SC2: I can identify when to exchange
SC3: I can keep my presentation neat

Today we are moving onto division that involves more than one exchange within a calculation. You will follow the same process as previous days but just more than once.

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

 

11:15-12:30 English

Show (applying)

LO: To show my understanding of creative writing.

SC1. I can plan my ideas.

SC2. I can use figurative language.

SC3. I can use precise vocabulary choices.

SC4. I can evaluate my own work.

 

Today, in guided reading, you learnt about Count Olaf’s plans to have the children take part in the play. For your English lesson, I want you to continue the story and tell me what happens next. You will need to consider:

1) How do the children react to the news about the play?

2) What will they decide to do? Will they agree or devise a plan to escape?

3) Will the Count do something evil to make the children do as he asks?

 

When continuing the story, you will need to:

1) Spend 10 minutes planning what you would like to happen next. Think about the actions of the children and Count Olaf.

2) Choose appropriate similes and metaphors to help develop your description of the action.

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) I would like to see a minimum of two paragraphs.

To help you with your writing I have put together a short video where I model an example of how to plan your writing. There are also vocabulary word lists attached to the bottom of the page.
