Amazing Dragon writing!

Welcome to Week 2 of the Summer Term! 


I hope you are all well and keeping safe. 

What have you been up to this weekend? 

I spent a lot of my Saturday gardening, especially sweeping... only to find loads of blossom on the floor again on Sunday morning! 


My plan for today; 

Morning work - sentence building 

English - Chapter 4 reading comprehension 

Maths - Adding Fractions 

Topic - Kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon Britain/Runes 

French - Colours

Story - Choose a classic! 

Morning work 

Take the sentence I have written and improve it using all the skills you already know.

e.g. pronouns, adding extra adjectives, creating a noun phrase, using adverbs or imperative verbs... 


For example, 

Miss Kaur's brother checked her car. 


You could change this to... 

Miss Kaur's car was making a strange noise. She was fortunate that her brother was home, as she is hopeless at checking that her car has enough water or oil in it. Therefore, her kind brother decided to check it for her. 


Have a go on these three sentences; 

1. The dragon sat next to Hiccup

2. The school play was cancelled. 

3. The boy/girl watched the other children carefully. 


I would like you to read or listen to How to Train your Dragon, Chapter 4: How to Train Your Dragon, 

I would like you to choose a minimum of 5 questions to answer, these must be answered as FULL SENTENCES using the question to answer, or as I like to call it, a Quanswer! 


  1. What shock did the boys have when Hiccup’s dragon opened its mouth to yawn?
  2. What does ‘solemn’ mean?
  3. What is the name of the sport that the Vikings play.
  4. Why did Hiccup try to walk through the gates without being noticed?
  5. Why does Fishlegs defend Hiccup in front of Snotlout?
  6. Why is it important that Hiccup challenges Snotlout?
  7. Describe the appearance of ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ by Professor Yobbish.
  8. Why was a picture of‘How To Train Your Dragon’included by the author?
  9. How does Hiccup react to reading ‘How To Train Your Dragon’?
  10. Compare Snotlout and Hiccup. What are the similarities and differences between the two boys.


E4E: Snoutlout is a bully. True or false? Give reasons for your answer.

How to Train your Dragon; Chapter 4

Maths starter


Today we will be looking at adding fractions, this can be one or two fractions! 

e.g. 1/8 + 2/8 + 2/8 = 5/8 

1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8

The shaded areas show how many eights there are altogether.


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). 


Today there's two parts of our lesson, part 1 is understanding that the Anglo-Saxons lived in their own 'Kingdoms' within modern England. I want you to have a go at identifying the correct places/names of the Kingdoms (you don't need to print the sheet out). 

The BBC link will help you name the Kingdoms so please take a look. 


Part two is a quick reading task on runes (the writing used by Anglo-Saxons) and have a go at writing your name using them! 

For an extension you might want to draw some runes on soft stones/pebbles you can find in your garden (please check with a grown up before you do this!)   


Seven Kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon Britain

Answer these questions 

  1. What do you think the word ‘monument’ means?
  2. Why might runes only have been made out of straight lines, rather than curved lines?
  3. Summarise the key points of this text in 20 words or less.
  4. How do the meanings of the runes compare to their name?
  5. Have a go at writing your full name using runes!
