English - writing about writing

Poets spend a lot of time writing.  Sometimes they end up writing about writing!

To see what I mean, have a look at Karl's poems 'I write these poems' and 'writer's block.'  You could make notes about them in your poetry journal.

Poetry Journal Task

I would like you to use your journal to explore how you feel about writing (in particular how you feel about writing poetry).  You can write in sentences or in a mindmap.  You can add pictures.  You could write a poem about writing.  You could write a poem about finding it easy or hard, about loving or hating it or not being sure.  I'd love to see how you do feel about writing.

Maths - number.

Today we've got some ordering numbers challenges (p.4,5 or 6 of the booklet).  To do your working out you can make place value columns to help compare the numbers.  If you want more challenge you can have a go with decimals.

We've also got a challenge where the sequences get bigger or smaller each time by 10, 100, 1000 etc. (p.11)
