English: Writing - Zoom input at 9:30am

Let us start by reading some more the our text, 'Holes'

Today we will be continuing to write our guides for survival at CGL. Today we will be thinking about the next few sections including the section on Staying Safe.

In this section, you want to make sure you have included the following rules:

  • Avoid rattlesnakes and scorpions.
  • Yellow spotted lizards – one bite will kill you.
  • Dehydration and the lack of water.
  • Don’t run away.

Here is an example of this section to help you:

Staying Safe

Dehydration is not your biggest concern here at CGL. Lethal creatures lurk around every corner - and in every hole in this arid desert wasteland. Revolting rattlesnakes and blood-thirsty scorpions loiter everywhere. Getting bitten by one of these cannibalistic creatures isn’t the worst thing that can happen to you. You won’t die. But avoid the malevolent yellow spotted lizards. One bite and it’s the end of your existence; you will die a slow and painful death. Always. You must be extremely cautious. They can be found hiding in dry dirt piles and deep within holes. Stay alert.

Task: Write the next sections including Staying Safe and the Most important rule.

Maths - Zoom input at 11:00am

Today we will be looking at multiplying decimals by integers. 

Do not be put off by the word 'integers'! An integer is just a whole number.

CHEAT: When we multiply decimals, we do not line up the decimals. After you multiply, count how many numbers are after the decimal point in both number and match sure that many numbers are after the decimal point.

Look at the example of how we do this below:
