LO: To write a character description.
 
Today we are going to use our planning from Friday's session to help us write a character description of Abdul Kazam. Read the example WAGOLL to help magpie and generate ideas for you own description.
 

Remember to include:

  • What the character looks like.

  • What their job or role is.

  • What their personality is like.

  • Their actions – what they do on stage

 
 
Look carefully through the checklist to remind yourself of the features of a character description and to help you guide your writing. Refer back to it throughout today's session so that your writing is focused. Also remember to USE your plan and some of the wonderful ideas you have written down. 
 
You can choose from the sentence starters below or magpie ideas from the example. I am missing your shared ideas in class to help us along and look forward to writing together soon. 
 
 
Abdul Kazam Sentence starters:
 
Using prepositional phrases help us to start our sentences in different and interesting ways, whilst alos focusing our description. Try using some of the examples below:
 
On his feet....                         All around him.....          Inside he felt...
           
            Before he found magic...                     Between his shows....         
                                             
                                             Around his neck...

LO: To use multiplication knowledge to solve scaling problems. 

Everyone loves visiting big shows and attractions, just like Leon. Those that travel in the show need feeding when then come off stage. Today you are going to help scale recipes for the stage show cook.

To begin follow the BBC bitesize link to explore Scaling and how we can use our multiplication skills to solve everyday problems, like scaling ingredients. 

 

Following this select A, B or C depending on how much you would like to challenge yourself, C being the most challenging.  You can print off the sheets or simply write down the amount of each recipe on a piece of paper.

 

In each page you will find recipes with amounts that are completed and a section that is blank. You must scale the recipe up or down to make it correct.
