WALT: create dialogue




Following today's zoom lesson, you need to think back to the scene where the goblins and Freya. What was the dialogue between them? Use the pictures below and create speech bubbles for each character to show what they are saying. Remember you do not need speech marks!

We will be using this dialogue in a play script tomorrow.

You can watch the video again by using the link below.


If you're stuck, take a look at the examples below. You don't have to use the exact same dialogue from the video.


PFP - Practise speaking the dialogue with an adult, brother or sister. Remember to use lots of expression!


WALT use efficient multiplication.


The term 'efficient' means working in a systematic or organised way. So today's lesson is all about choosing and using the most systematic method to you. REMEMBER, NOT everyone will agree on the same method. For today's session you will begin by multiplying two single digit numbers and then will progress to multiplying two digit numbers by a single digit number.


A common method is to 'adjust' the question. For example if you were given the problem 6 x 4 = ?


You may not feel confident with your 4 times table however you may know your 5 times table. So, you could change the factors to 6 x 5 = 30. Then subtract 6 (6 x 1). 30 - 6 = 24. So 6 x 4 = 24


Another common method is to 'double one factor and halve the other factor. For example if we had 6 x 8. We could change the factors by doubling and halving them:


6 x 8 = ?

12 x 4 = ?

24 x 2 = ?


As you can see above, we have doubled one factor and halved the other to help us find the product, which is 48.


WALA: Computer networks

A computer network is a group of computers linked to each other that enables the computer to communicate with another computer and share their resources, data, and applications.

 Watch the video by clicking the link to find out more about computer networks.


Using the documents below, match each part of a computer network to the correct description. You can draw each part if you wish. You could even create a computer network poster. If you are finding it tricky, use Internet research to help you.
