I would like you to start off by listening to Chapter 5 of How to Train your Dragon and answer the questions below.

8. What is happening now?

9. What do you think will happen next?

#### Punctuating text

The main task for you to have a go at, is punctuating the text below.

Most of you will be focusing on the use of inverted commas/speech marks, others will also be including capital letters, full stops, apostrophes and commas.

I have three options for you to choose from,

Option 1 - for those of you who find adding inverted commas difficult.

Option 2 - for those who just want to have a go at including inverted commas.

Option 3 - for those of you who want a real challenge to include ALL the punctuation from the text.

For those of you who need a reminder of how to include inverted commas, take a look at the BBC video from yesterday again.

## Maths

Today we are going to continue working on subtracting fractions, when we subtract, remember that the denominators (bottom numbers) must remain the same, so if you have 2/4 and you need to subtract 1/8.
You will need to find a common denominator, if you double 2/8 it equals 4/8.

It is much easier to subtract, as 4/8 - 1/8 = 3/8.

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 not included an extension today... please email me if you would like one.

## Art

Today we are looking at some Anglo - Saxon Art, there was many different skills that were developed during Anglo-Saxon times, I've included some information for you, and then would like you to have a go at using sketching and fine detail to draw a brooch or belt buckle. These were very common and the amount of detail included reflected the amount of wealth you had in Anglo-Saxon times.

Examples of Brooches and Belt Buckles
