Mr and Mrs Langley, Mrs Barden x
As the music is playing think about the special people in your life, who can you count on?
We are now moving on to Decimals and Percentages.
White Rose Maths have produced video guides for this area of the maths curriculum.
With the video you will find the worksheet to work through. Remember you do not have to copy out all of the questions, especially if they use complicated diagrams. Your answers and any workings out are enough.
Complete Week 1, Lesson 1- Decimals up to 2 dp. DO NOT DO SUMMER TERM WEEK 1
It has a video, worksheet and then a sheet with the answers on. Do what you can, there are a large number of questions.
Remember to read for 20-30 mins a day. Write down any words you can not read or any that you do not understand from your book.
Session 1: Listening and responding to the text.
Read the tasks below before you click on the first link.

- Listen to the first sentence up to 51 seconds: “When the doorbell rings at three in the morning, it’s never good news.” (NOTE: It might be best if you don’t share the title of the novel beforehand).
- Discuss how this opening line impacts on the reader/listener. What predictions does it set up for them about what genre this is e.g. might this be a thriller? Do you think you will enjoy reading/listening to this book?
- Write down your initial thoughts or ideas about this book.
- Continue listening to 3m 05secs or reading aloud up to bottom of p10 ‘…so sorry’, if you have the book. Are there any indications this might be a thriller?
- Collect together any ideas or indications this story is going to be a thriller in your book or on your paper (you may need to listen again or reread the chapter to this point again in order to collect the clues you are looking for).
- Before listening or reading on, discuss what you think might have happened to whom, using the information in the text (some of you may already be familiar with the book or the film!).
- Continue listening/reading to the end of the chapter. You will have to click on the Chapter 1, part 2 link at some point.
- Note down any questions you might have that are unanswered by the first chapter.
Draw a line drawing of a face in pencil. It can be a self-portrait or a portrait.
Now divide the face in four!
Pick four artist’s styles that you like and fill in each section of the face. Don’t forget the backgrounds too!
You could look at pop artists, impressionists and cubist artists for inspiration.
What about trying one of the artists we used this year like Julian Opi, Carne Griffiths, Vince Low and Francoise Nielly?
