From yesterday, you should have created a table of rules to follow at Camp Green Lake for your survival guide. This may look like the table below:
Add any ideas from today's part of the story to your table.
We now need to organise these rules into sections, so that rules on a similar theme are linked under subheadings.
Task 1: Generate a title and subheading for your guides.
- Alliteration e.g. “Daily Digging”,
- Repetition e.g. “Dig, dig and dig some more”
- A play on words e.g. “Safety Rules!”
Task 2: Put rules on a similar theme under each subheading. Your plan may look something like this:

Place Value! What better way of reminding ourselves with this than with a song?
Today we will be recapping a year 5 skill. We will be looking at decimals with 2 decimal places.
- What is a decimal?
- What is a decimal place?
- What is the place value of the first digit after the decimal point?
- What is the place value of the second digit after the decimal point?
- We can use decimals to represent values less than one (instead of fractions)
- Values after the decimal point. E.g. 2.3 has one decimal place, 2.34 has two decimals places.

Task: Split your paper (A3 or A4) into 2 halves: Give one side the title What do I already know? And the other side What do I want to find out? Under the first side, write facts – use your work from last week to help. Under the second side, write questions that you would like to find out about throughout the topic.
