You know you love it!  Well, Mrs Dolman does anyway!



We start today's maths lesson with your Personal Targets books.  I am hoping that lots of you will be ready to move up a Level when we return to school.  You may do extra tests if you wish in your Personal Targets books.


Then we continue with revision of topics already covered, using our Maths SATs Question Books.

Re-read pages 61-68 from chapter 6 of The Sun King.  You are going to write a diary entry for Lil in which she tells what has happened that day at Tulip's house.  


Start by picking 4 things out from pages 61-68 that Lil might write about in her diary when she got home.  You could choose from:-


  • finding out about Tulip's brother Alex
  • learning about the canopic jar from Oz
  • Confessing that Lil has read the translation of the scroll
  • The plan that Lil and Tulip come up with
  • How Lil feels about the plan


Your diary should cover about 3/4 of a page in an English book and should be informal in style (but correct spellings!).  You could start with,


Dear diary,   


Today has been the strangest day .....



I have set 3 separate 10 mark assignments for you.

Science - Heartbeaters experiment


Rather than doing Computing, which is hard to do when we are learning remotely I would like you to conduct an experiment on yourselves today.  We are going to record the effect of different exercises on your heart rate.
