Thursday 18th June


Today, we're going to write a setting description of Pompeii before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. 

I want you to use all of your work from this week to support you with this - the illustrations, your senses word bank from Tuesday and your descriptive sentences from Wednesday.


A setting description doesn't have to be really long - go for good quality work today over quantity. Remember, you're not telling a story - nothing happens in a setting description. It just makes the reader imagine a scene!


As always, I've written a WAGOLL so check it out and feel free to magpie any vocabulary that you like but remember to include your own ideas because I know that they'll be better than mine!


LO: Can I write a setting description?



This week, you've discovered that...


- there are 180 degrees in a straight line

- there are 360 degrees about a point


and you've used this information to find missing angles. Today you're going to look at finding missing angles in a triangle using the fact that there are 180 degrees in a triangle!


Watch the video below for more information and then open the document below to choose a chilli to have a go at.

Remember to use a written method (column addition and subtraction) when calculating.

Today, you're going to look at something that will sound very tricky but really isn't so don't panic when you see the LO!


Scientists today have a very good understanding of our solar system and how it works but this wasn't always the case. Hundreds of years ago, people didn't have the technology that we do now so they would come up with theories to explain what they saw that weren't always correct.


We're going to look at 2 main theories or models about our solar system.

One is that it is a geocentric (jee-oh-sen-trick) model and the other is that it is a heliocentric (he-lee-oh-sen-trick) model.


Look at the PowerPoint below for more information. It will explain all!

I'd then like you to draw the geocentric model into your book, label it and explain what it is. 

Then draw the heliocentric model into your book, label it and explain what it is. 

You can colour them in too! 


LO: As a scientist, can I understand the difference between a geocentric and heliocentric model of the solar system?
