Good morning munchkins


Don't forget our call today at 10.45am!

Remember to have 2 quiz questions (multiple choice or true/false) ready!

Looking forward to seeing you all x


Yesterday you should have used your senses to come up with ideas about what you could see, hear, smell, touch and taste in Pompeii before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. 


Today, we're going to start to turn these ideas into sentences.

Look at the task below for more information. You can write onto the sheet if you'd like but it might be easier to do it straight into your book as you'll have more room!


LO: Can I write descriptive sentences?


Over the last 2 days, you've learnt how to find missing angles on a straight line and missing angles about a point.

Today, we're just going to practise these concepts to make sure that you're really confident with this!


I've got a codebreaker for you! You need to find the answer to each question and match the answer to a letter. The letters will spell out a mathematical word. Can you crack the code and find out what that word is?


I've uploaded answers too so that you can mark your work but PLEASE don't look at them until you've finished your work.

I will be able to tell - I know all! cheeky


LO: Can I find missing angles?


On Monday, you looked at some important lines of latitude - the Equator, the Tropic of Cancer, the Tropic of Capricorn, the Arctic circle and the Antarctic circle and how these linked to the world's climate zones.


Today, we're going to think about lines of latitude and longitude in more detail.

They are imaginary lines that can be used (a bit like co-ordinates in maths) to identify where something is.


Watch the video below for an introduction then check out the PowerPoint to learn more.

There is then a task to have a go at as well as an extension that links your learning on lines of latitude and longitude to volcanoes. 

This is quite tricky but please just try your best and give it a whirl for me - I know you can do it!


LO: As a geographer, can I understand lines of longitude and latitude?
