L.O To introduce a problem into a story.

We are continuing our adventure story. Today you are going to say where your characters goes to in or with whatever they got for their reward last time. For example, you may have said they go in their new jeep and find a forgotten village. (Look back at your plan.)  Now introduce a problem. Perhaps the people in village aren't very friendly and start chasing your character. Perhaps the village is so peaceful and friendly that you want to stay forever. Perhaps your jeep is stolen by the villagers. Stop after you have written the problem. Don't say how  you get away or anything. That is for tomorrow.

Remember all the usual things- punctuation, conjunctions etc. Today- can you use a similie? (Remember a similie is when we compare something, such as "as quiet as a mouse" or "as  brave as a lion".


Mental Maths Starter:

Watch the powerpoint on measurement, including time. This will help recap our recent work, before we move on to shape this week. Just talk through the answers with your grown up.

L.O: To make a rain gauge 

I have planted some cress seeds at home and will be posting some photos next week once they have started growing. While we are waiting for the cress to grow, we will start our work on the other part of our science. As part of our work on seasons, we will be thinking about rainfall. Watch the powerpoint on rainfall and rain gauges. This week I want you to have fun making a rain gauge using an empty plastic bottle. Follow the instructions on the sheet and see if you can make your own.

In your book draw a picture of your finished rain gauge. Write 2 or 3 sentences underneath to explain what a rain gauge is and how we use it. Even if you haven't been able to make a rain gauge, still draw a picture and write about rain gauges in your book.

You then need to check your rain gauge every day and record how much rain has fallen. Use the worksheet below or make your own chart.
