Now that you have drawn your alien and written some descriptive language around it, you will be writing a character description of your alien. Make sure that you include as many features of your alien in you description as you can. Include expanded noun phrases, similes and metaphors (you should have some you can include from yesterday’s work.

Example:

The first feature that stands out on this bizarre looking creature is the enormous, black and yellow eyes. The thin yellow slivers fix on you, scanning from left to right. They are so large you can see you reflection, like two colossal mirrors. The skin on his face is an emerald green and is scaly and course like an old, weathered crocodile.

Maths

Warm up with 15 minutes of Times Tables Rock Stars. If you do not know your log in details please email Mr Mason or Mrs Cousins and they will send them to you.

Today we will carry on learning about vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines.

When there is an o’clock time or a half past time, the minute hand is vertical. Look at the pictures:

When there is a quarter past or quarter to time, the minute hand is horizontal. Look at the pictures:
