## English

Continue to write your description of Camp Green Lake that you started yesterday. Here is another example to help you:

Down in the depths of the lost oven lies the deathly Camp Green Lake. She scorches and torches you like a fire burning all day and night. No life can be found for miles. Surviving a day for many is a challenge, knowing what dangers lurk beneath. The never -ending loneliness sucks out your will to live.

Task: Finish writing and edit your description. When editing check for: capital letters and full stops; interesting word choices; spelling errors and varied punctuation.

## Maths

First let's remind ourselves of the following phrase that will help us when reading / plotting co-ordinates:

Go along the corridor (x-axis) then up / down the stairs (y-axis)

Today you will be finding missing co-ordinates. Look at the question below.

By looking at the co-ordinates of C we know that point A is at (-1, ?) as both point A and C will have the same co-ordinate for the x-axis.

We can work out the y-axis co-ordinate by looking at B. B is at (7,8) so A is at (-1,8)

What are the co-ordinates of D? Use the information from the co-ordinates you already know to help.

Task: Find the missing co-ordinates from the shapes. Use the information you have been given and write on the image to support you. Label the co-ordinates - it'll help.

## Art

This terms art unit is called Objects and their meanings.

Let's start by thinking about the following questions:

• Do you know what still life means?
• What kind of painting technique does it use?

Look through the slides below:

You will look at some still life paintings today and discuss these questions:

1. What is the subject of the painting?
2. What colour combinations have been used?
3. Why do you think the artist used the objects?
4. How have the objects been arranged and what impact does this have?

Children will look at three different paintings and answer the above questions about them.
