and work through the powerpoint below before you try to complete the worksheet.

### English:

We are doing an English zoom at 10:30am. Please use the link in the email to take part in this. We will discuss how to turn your notes into a paragraph.

Today we are going to write paragraph three and four of our diary entry.

Your paragraph today should be 5 or more sentences please. Make sure you are getting detail in there. When your writing is short, it doesn't give the reader much information.

Success criteria:

• Conjunctions (and, but, so, because, which)
• Time connectives (next, later on, then)
• Prepositions (behind, in front of, next to, behind, opposite)
• Capital letters and full stops
• Interesting sentence starters

See below for some magpie words (words you can use in your writing).

### Computing:

Today we are going to continue our work on coding.

Recap:

Coding is where we give computers the information they need to make them do the things we see on the screen.

It's almost as if we are giving the computer a set of instructions so they can do everything right.

Just think - you would need to follow some instructions to make a cake or play a board game. It might go very wrong if you did one of the steps wrong or got them around the wrong way!
