Look at the map below... 


Please watch the clip below, it will help you with the task today.

This is Berk

A section of the film 'How to Train Your Dragon'

Today we are going to plan a setting, an Anglo-Saxon or Viking village or town. 

First you will need to sketch out what the place looks like. 


If we are creating our own setting. Do we need to follow the film’s setting exactly? Why?


This is YOUR setting, your place which we will use to describe the setting of a story next week. 


I had a quick go at it for myself... (Using a photo) 


The island of Berk is a wild, noisy place with sleeping, pooping, annoying dragons. The people who live here belong to the noble Hairy Hooligan Tribe. Many of them are strong, scary Viking warriors with their own personal dragon. The dragons have selfish tendencies and are willing to hunt and kill whoever crosses their path! This village works hard to keep the peace between the vicious Vikings and deadly dragons. Without a sound, scaly, sneaky dragons walk through the shadows and keep their village safe from raiders and invaders. 


What do you notice in my writing? 

  • Capital letters and full stops
  • Commas in a list 
  • Noun phrases / Expanded noun phrases 
  • Alliteration 
  • Fronted adverbials 

Check if you can see any of these and if you can include it in your own writing. 


Well this is our last lesson on Fractions - I will do a flashback soon though! 

I know some of you have found it challenging, and that's okay! 


Today we will be looking at finding quantities of a fraction.

So we will need to do some inverse of division to help us (for those of you who can't remember, the inverse means opposite, so therefore the opposite of division is multiplication!) 

This will be a little challenging... even for adults! So if you're stuck on a question, leave it and go on to the next one. 


I haven't included an extension today, but I have one if you want it, please email me and I will send you it. 



Today we are going to have a go at coding, coding is really important, as it's because of amazing people who code that I am able to provide learning to you in this way. 


I have included a link to 'Hour of Code' which is a website that will tell you to complete different challenges and will get slightly harder the higher the levels you go on the activity activity. Today's is linked to 'Flappy bird' 

I hope you enjoy it! 



Watch the video link below about predators. 


Afterwards see if you can answer these questions; 

  • What did you learn about the way animals get their food?
  • How does a dolphin get food? How does a gorilla find its food?
  • Can you think of how a lion in the wild might catch its food and what it might eat?


E4E: Can you see/find any predators in your garden/looking outside?
