I can't believe it's week five already - the time has flown by - just like September!
In Maths this coming week we will be looking at addition and subtraction - we will look at formal written methods but at the same time we will discuss possibilities of the values of A+A+A = AB. What could A and B stand for and why do they think this.
In English we will be thinking about setting descriptions and upscaling our sentences. We will think about our senses and how they can impact on descriptive pieces but also think about our use of adverbs and similes.
Science will focus on another electric area - volts - we will think about what the different volts may do to circuits and why.
We have begun thinking about programming in Computing and are hoping to develop our own simple games using the program 'Kodu'.
A simile describes something by comparing it to something else, using like or as:
- The snake moved like a ripple on a pond.
- It was as slippery as an eel.
- Jess is as graceful as a gazelle.
The similes in this passage are highlighted in bold:
The cracked earth was as dry as sandpaper. Suddenly, lightning forked in the sky like fluorescent veins. The sky darkened to a moody grey and thunder roared like an angry lion. Rain sluiced down from the sky, drenching the parched earth.
