Maths: Today's lesson is called 'Complete a symmetric figure'. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

Worksheets and answers are in the documents. There is an extension here where your task is to make a snowflake with 6 lines of symmetry. I know its not really the weather to investigate snowflakes but it's fun all the same.

Planning – Build Up / Problem  

Let’s go into a little more detail! Plan both paragraphs using bullet points. In your bullet points you should be including: 

  • Sentence openers (fronted adverbials, adverbs) 

  • Key words (adverbials, adjectives) 

  • Phrases (alliteration, metaphors, similes, expanded noun phrases) 

  • Short sentences (which could be expanded upon)  

  • Plan in chronological/sentence order  

Page Break 

Remember to include the following in your planning: 

Introduction 

  • Introduce the main characters 

  • Don’t need to repeat the characters so far in the story. Say what they are doing.  

 

  • Introduce the story setting  

  • Describe the sea … is there any Sarcastic Seaweed or other mysterious creatures?  

  • Think about the weather, time of day, what it would be like for each of the characters! 

Build Up  

  • Develop the characters and the setting  

  • Are there any new characters? 

  • Do they have a conversation?  

  • Where are they? How far are they from the Hallowed Shallows?  

 

  • The points that lead up to the conflict or climax (high point) in the story 

  • Do they see something in the distance?  

  • Does the weather change?

Enquiry 

 

Today, we are focusing on a famous artist called Paul Klee. He produced about 9000 pieces of art in his lifetime: landscapes, seascapes, still life and most interestingly for us, fish!

 

 

Here are some of his pictures. What do you think? How do they make you feel? What can you see: Do they have anything in common?   

   

Paul Klee once said, ' A line is a dot that went for walk'. You are going to explore this idea in a piece of art today. Read the Lesson Plan and click on the link to learn more about Paul Klee's life and art.
