Today's maths lesson is to give coordinates in all four quadrants.

Remember to watch the video first as this will help you to understand what you need to do. Then complete the sheet, either by printing it out, if you are able, or writing the answers into your workbook. If you need a little more help, look through the PowerPoint for some more support. 

For an extra challenge, you can also complete the GDS questions below.


Now we know the story really well, we need to think about what the ‘Tools not Rules’ might be to help us create suspense.  There are some ideas taken from paragraph 3 on page 10.

Have a look at the next paragraph which begins, ‘Suddenly, there was a distant shout…’ can you spot any of these features in this paragraph too? 

Another great tool for building suspense is ‘show-not-tell’. We don’t just want to TELL the reader how the character is feeling. We want to SHOW them by what is happening to their body, how they are talking, how they are moving or how they treat people.

Read activity 4 on page 12 carefully and complete the sentences to practise your show-not-tell skills.


We hope you are having a lovely summer holiday break.
