Today’s maths session is developing your knowledge of the nine times table. There is not a video for this session, I have attached the slides that you can have a look at and read through. Similar to how we go through slides in the classroom.
Please do not feel pressured into finishing everything on the sheets. Give it your best go and work through what you can.
Continue to mark your work Year 4, just like we do in class! 😎
Welcome to our final day of our analysis of The Witching Hour by Roald Dahl. We are using this chapter of The BFG to help us write a really effective story introduction, using clever tricks that we have magpied from Roald Dalh himself!
So far, we have used each of these skills, 1 paragraph at a time:
- sound, we pointed out all of the sounds we couldn’t hear in our home
- sinister vocabulary, we used language that created a spooky atmosphere
- personification, we made the ash cloud into a fearsome beast!
Today, we are looking towards the end of the chapter, where Sophie looks out of the window and sees a world that she knows well look completely different in the moonlight! read the text one more time for me and let’s discuss what Dahl does, this time with colour and light.
This idea of changing a familiar-looking world to one that is suddenly very unfamiliar is a great trick for our writing! The fact that we have actually already seen our world look suddenly different, last week when it snowed, is really going to help! Here are some pictures of what ask and dust clouds can look like at street level! They are pretty scary!
Hopefully, this helps you picture what the final scene in your story could look like! We are going to write our final paragraph and use it to turn our familiar world into one that feels very different because of the volcanic ash! Here is my example:
This afternoon, we are going to test our volcanoes – we will do this over Teams with both classes! Afterwards, we will participate in our FRIYAY!!
