Lesson  1 - Maths - As per powerpoint and documents


Lesson 2 - English - This lesson should take up the time of two lessons worth due to the time needed to plan, draft and write their story. Please could you send photos of this where the writing is clearly visible, so I can add it to your writing folder.


Lesson 3 - Using the PDF on my recent dojo post. Choose 20 of the spellings from the list you are unsure of. Practise the spelling of them using the look cover write check method. Get an adult to test you on them after. 



Independent Assessed Writing

Watch this YouTube clip of Avatar. Makes notes on the setting of Avatar. Think about colours, what you could hear, smell, touch etc. Once you have done this start to plan out a story set in this place called Pandora. The story should include some of the features of a sci-fi genre, so you might want to list some of the things you would expect to find in a sci-fi genre.


The story should be at least two sides of A4, so plan out the different aspects of the story before you start writing it. You'll need to think carefully about the plot, the problem and the resolution. You can draft this out on a whiteboard or scrap paper before writing it up in neat. The You tube clip is below. Start from 2:22
