Today's lesson is all about writing in a chatty style to express your views, thoughts and feelings. You will need to get into the role of Alfie (the main character in Demon Dentist). This means today, you will be writing in first person.  


Work your way through the ‘English – Informal Writing’ PowerPoint where you can read the first chapter of Demon Dentist and practice writing in an informal style. 


12:30 - 13:30 - Lunch Time



Afternoon - Wider Curriculum 


Today, we are going to focus on healthy food choices and the effect it has on our bodies. 


Task 1 

Choose 12 food items at random from your fridge or larder (or get someone else to choose them for you). Now place them into groups – how you group them is up to you. Write, draw or take a picture of your groups and write an explanation of how you grouped them. 


Task 2 

Carefully read through the ‘DT - Healthy Eating PowerPoint'. Now rearrange your food items into the correct categories as shown on the Eatwell Guide – slide 7 (CARBOHYDRATE, FRUIT AND VEGETABLES, PROTEINS, DAIRY and OILS/SPREADS). Again, take a picture of your real-life ‘Eat Well Plate’ if you can, for your Home Learning Book or draw it. 


Task 3 

Read the Information Text about healthy eating carefully and choose the level of questions you would like to answer. Remember to write in full sentences.  

  • Mild - copy and complete the sentences into your book, using the word bank provided with each sentence to help you.  

  • Spicy - answer the questions in full sentences, using the word banks to help you.  

  • Hot - answer the questions in full sentences. You MUST include ALL the words in each word bank in your answer. There is an extension challenge to complete at the end.
