What do you think of the Zepper 2016 – is it a realistic form of transport for the world today?
We learnt about alliteration in December. It’s when two or more words begin with the same letter for example, terrific transport.
Today’s task is to come up with 6 pieces of alliteration linked to the Zepper 2016 flying machine.
If you've done that and you want to CHALLENGE yourself, you can also think of some examples of rule of three that could be used to describe the machine.

Listen to Chapter 2 of How to Train a Dragon (it’s in two parts) and then answer the questions below. You might want to read the questions before you start listening so you know what to keep an ear out for.
Answer these questions:

•Gronkle has ‘fangs like kitchen knives’. What does this tell us about the dragon?
•What do dragons smell like?
There are two quadrilaterals you will all have heard of before. They are a square and a rectangle.
The diagrams below should help remind you of the properties of theses shapes. Can you spot the new vocabulary we have been learning
Using a ruler, can you draw a square with sides that are 4cm? What is the perimeter of this square?
Can you draw a rectangle whose longer sides are 6cm? What is the perimeter of the rectangle.
Can you draw a rectangle whose shorter sides are half the length of the longer sides?
CHALLENGE: Squares can be classified as rectangles, but not all rectangles can be classified as squares. Can you explain why?
Research the about the life of one of the following two inventors: Tim Berners-Lee or Ada Lovelace. You could use https://kids.britannica.com/ or https://www.kiddle.co/ to help you with your research.
Can you answer the following questions about one or both of these people?
•When were they born?
•If they are no longer alive, when did they die?
•Where were they born?
•What did they invent?
•What makes them an inspiring person?
Once you have done the research, publish it either on Purple Mash or by making a poster.
