English

Day 1 - Onto those fearsome dragon descriptions! In the week commencing 20th April, you came up with a list of vicious vocabulary to describe the dragon. We are now going to put these into sentences! I would like a sentence for each part of him that you came up with words for. Here's mine below. Can you scare your reader too?

The Dragon's piercing eyes were like pools of black. His razor sharp teeth dripped with blood. In one fiery blast, he could burn down an entire village. His flame-red scales were tougher than the strongest armour and his claws, like daggers, could rip anything to shreds in one swipe. Even the bravest of men could not defend themselves against his deadly, spear-like tail. 

Day 2: Can you think of other things a dragon could be surprisingly scared of? Make a list of 3-5 other fears and give reasons for why the dragon is scared of it!

Day 3: Write your own dragon acrostic poem (each line starts with a letter that spells 'dragon'). You can make it rhyme if you're feeling fancy, though it doesn't have to. Use the great vocabulary you've come up with so far! Can you use alliteration and adjectives? There is a template below to help you, or you can get creative and make your own!

Day 4: Would you recommend this book to someone else? Using one of the book review templates below, write your own review of the book! You can do this on your own paper or print the template or design your own - it's up to you!

 

Topic

Friday 8th May is the 75th Anniversary celebration of VE Day, so I thought it would be worth spending our topic time finding out all about it, especially as it is a bank holiday this year!

Day 1 - Find out about VE Day using the PowerPoint below. There is a mini quiz at the end and a few 'try this' challenges along the way. You can choose one to do at home.

Day 2 - Mapping the Second World War. The Map of Europe Sheet and List of Countries sheet below will help you to see which countries were involved in the war, whether they were axis or allies and where these countries are in Europe. I think this is a helpful visual to see the extent of the war.

Day 3 - Design your own VE Day medal. There is a sheet below with the instructions about what your medal will need to truly commemorate the victory! How imaginative can you be?

Day 4 - Morse Code! Using the sheet below, can you work out the messages by using the code made up of dashes and dots?
