There are so many things that I have been thankful for during this week, the biggest being the fact that so many of your grown ups have been in touch and let me know how you are all doing!
Thank you to Grace for sending in a picture for my mum to give to one of the elderly people she works with (if anyone else would like to, you have till Tuesday to send it to me). It is a small act of kindness and I know it will mean the world to them and bring a smile to their faces!

Today I would like you to start by getting a sheet of plain paper and drawing your OWN dragon. This dragon will be unique as it is yours... No two dragons are the same, yours could be scaly or smooth, could have large sharp teeth or small ones. It is entirely up to you!
Remember, this part of the lesson is quite like an Art lesson, take your time, sketch your outline out gently and then add more defined lines/features for your dragon.
Once you have drawn your dragon, you are going to create your dragon 'Trump Card', similar to the ones in the story...
First you need to name your dragon.
Then you need to create a written description for your dragon, using descriptive language like 'This magnificent and terrifying creature with enormous scales and smooth, sharp talons with piercing green eyes lurks in large caves, it sneaks slowly in and out of the shadows..'
Powerful, terrifying, straggly, unpleasant, vicious
amusing, suspiciously, pounding, popping
clammy, squirming, churning, groggily,
cautiously, ominous, gigantic, terrified, furiously.
Once you have finished your description, copy it neatly onto your tea stained paper you made earlier this week, so it looks like the ones from the story...
(I've done one too... scroll down to see it!)
Have a go on 'Hit the Button' doubles and halves challenge (up to 50)
Today we will be looking at counting in fractions, if I was to order pizza for 5 people, everyone gets 1/4 of a pizza each, I would could. 1/4, 2/4 (or better yet, 1/2), 3/4, 1 whole and finally 1 whole and 1/4 (Well I guess I'll have to have a little extra as I can't let 3/4 of the second pizza go to waste!).
Please go through the powerpoint presentation and choose the option sheet you would like to complete, you do not need to print the sheet out (the answer page will be at the end of the pdf).
I have also included an extension task for you (please remember that you do not HAVE to complete the extension).
Watch the YouTube video about staying safe on the internet and then complete the E-Safety to do on purple mash. If you cannot access purple mash, please list the things that are safe and unsafe to do on the internet. For example... telling someone online your address? Is that safe or unsafe?
Listen to the author Cressida Cowell read How To Train Your Dragon.
