Yesterday, we learnt how to create a storyteller's 'voice' in our writing by pausing the story to speak directly to the reader.

One of the mistakes that pupils sometimes make when writing either a myth, legend, fable or saga (traditional tales) is that they slip into using 'modern' language which doesn't quite 'fit' with a traditional tale - stories that have been passed on over time. Today, I would like you to create some sentences using the attached WORD BANK to help you to capture the right 'tone' for this piece of writing. I have included what we could call 'archaic' (old-fashioned) language to help you to think about choosing the right words to tell your story.

Today, we are thinking about multiplying decimals again (Lesson 7 in the textbook.)
I have included a link to the Power Maths Textbook so you can access the discovery task and the share section. I have also allocated any teaching resources that you might need. The White Rose video explains the concepts to be able to do this maths. You do not have to print off the question PDF, you can just write down answers on a piece of paper if you like. If you need any more help please, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today, I would like you to read the last of the Norse Legends - The Mead of Poetry -aloud to someone. Try to read with good intonation and expression.
