Thank you to all of you who have sent in work. Come back later to have a look at all the good learning and see if you get a special mention.
English - Writing
Similes and metaphors are a great way of building imagery into our writing. We have looked at them before.
This video explains a bit about them to remind you of what the difference is. (The video is made to teaching you about poems, some of the types of imagery it talks about aren't needed for our fictional story.)
Create 3 similes and 3 metaphors related to the scene that you drew on Monday.
English - Reading
In Chapter 14 the men return from the Marshlands after the terrible accident. Fred wants to keep everything quiet, but Lord Spittleworth has other ideas.
Lord Spittleworth is hoping that the news of the Ickabog spreads quickly and makes the beast sound as fearsome as possible.
"His entire plan rested on a king who not only believed in an Ickabog, but who was scared it might leave the marsh to chase him."
Your job is to help Lord Spittleworth with the most outrageous description of the Ickabog you can manage. In your description use words to describe it's size, how it made you feel, the smell and the sounds. Imagine you are telling everyone in Jeraboam all about this beast. Make it sound as scary as you can!
We're continuing with yesterday's theme and doing some more problem solving involving addition and subtraction today.
A few things to remember:
If you're finding it impossible, come up with an explanation for why it isn't possible.
What is the closest number you can make to 37 instead?
We're continuing with our work trying to understand how computers and the internet really work. Today we're going to be thinking about the question: How do the internet and search engines work?
