Tuesday 30th June

Good morning, listen carefully to Chapter 7, how does the dragon behave, what does he do, how does he move? This will help you with your literacy work this morning. 

Cressida reads How to Train Your Dragon: Chapter 7

Chapter 7 of How to Train Your Dragon. Follow every chapter of the story on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe01xn13M8q2dsIw0mvW9lg

Literacy 

Become a dragon for the day. Where have you been? What have you done? What kind of dragon are you? How have people reacted to you?

We would like you to plan a diary extract about the  day in the life of a dragon.

Make notes on: 

Where you sleep

What you eat

What you wear

Where you go

Who you meet

How you feel being a dragon ( is it exciting scaring lots of people or actually is it quite lonely being all by yourself?)

 

The notes will help you write your diary entry tomorrow. 

Remember notes are key words and phrases! 

 

Maths 

Today your task is to make a cage/home for a dragon.

You will need a big space, you may need to consider going to the park or being in your garden. 

Choose a dragon from the top trumps cards you made last week, identify the size of the dragon and then using that measurement identify the length and width of the cage they will need.  (Remember they will need some space to move) 

Using string, cones, pencils, blocks, things you might have at home etc mark out the perimeter of the cage/home.

Think about a suitable unit of measurement to find measure your perimeter.

 

Handwriting 

Topic 

Write your own dragon song to the tune of ‘London’s burning.’

E.g.

The dragon’s angry, the dragon’s angry…

 

Use equipment (pots, pans, boxes, lids, tubes) around the house to create a rhythm  to accompany your dragon song.
