**English**: **ALL WORK TO BE COMPLETED IN YOUR HOMEWORK BOOKS**

In English we are looking at the book called ‘The House with Chicken Legs.

This week we will be focusing on writing a setting description. To help you with this, there will be a Zoom call tomorrow where we will look at features of a setting description. Make sure you have your homework book with you.

What is a setting description?

A **setting** is **where** and **when** a story is set. When writing a story, the setting is really important. Thinking about these things will help your writing.

- Think about what the setting is like, is it day-time or night-time?
- How does the setting impact the characters?
- Can you picture the setting clearly? This will help you describe it to the reader.

Read this text below and can you identify some of the features of a setting from the checklist below. I would like you to find an example from the text and then write down which feature it is…. For example…

The attic was long and gloomy – Here the writer adjectives…. and so on

Using the imagery created in your mind can you now draw a picture of the attic.

**Checklist of a setting description:**

Figurative language (personification, metaphors and similes) expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials, adverbs, synonyms, paragraphs, adjectives, cohesion – is the description flowing and the five senses.

**Maths:**

In Maths we have started our new topic about Decimals.

What is a decimal?

A Decimal Number (*based on the number 10*) contains a

**Decimal Point.**

What is a decimal point?

A decimal is a way of writing a number that is not whole. Decimal numbers are ‘in between’ numbers. For example, 10.4 is in between the numbers 10 and 11. It is more than 10, but less than 11.

### First, let’s have an example:

Here is the number *“forty-five and six-tenths”* written as a decimal number:

The decimal point goes between Ones and Tenths.

**45.6** has 4 Tens, 5 Ones and 6 Tenths, like this:

## Place Value

It is all about Place Value !

In a** decimal** number, the digits to the left of the** decimal** point represent a whole number. The digits to the right of the** decimal** represent the parts. The place value of the digits becomes 10 times smaller. The first digit on the right of the** decimal point** means tenths.

When we write numbers, the **position** (or “**place**“) of each digit

is important.

In the number 327:

- the “7” is in the
**Ones**position, meaning 7 ones (which is 7), - the “2” is in the
**Tens**position meaning 2 tens (which is twenty), - and the “3” is in the
**Hundreds**position, meaning 3 hundreds.

“Three Hundred Twenty Seven” |

As we move left, each position is 10 times bigger! | |

Tens are 10 times bigger than Ones are 10 times bigger than Hundreds Tens |

… and …

As we move right, each position is 10 times smaller. | |

From Hundreds, to Tens, to Ones |

But what if we continue past Ones?What is 10 times smaller than Ones?110ths (Tenths) are! |

But we must first put a decimal point,so we know exactly where the Ones position is: | ||

“three hundred twenty seven and four tenths“but we usually just say “three hundred twenty seven point four“ |

And **that** is a Decimal Number!

**Questions:**

- What is the hundredths digit in the number 356.812?

2. For the decimal number 89.56 what is the digit in the tenths place?

3. For the number 36.249, what is the place value of the digit 9?

4. For the number 25.639, what is the place value of the digit 6?

5. For the number 2367.981, where do you find the largest digit?

Miss do we have these zoom calls today?

i have done it

Good girl, Make sure you upload your work.

Mrs I have sent my English work in through the share point.

Well done Samantha, you have identified the features. Make sure you now use these in your writing.

A good attempt Saifullah. I can see the image. Can you complete Task 1 please.

Well done Keisha. Can you find the features in the text that is in my blog.

I have done it and uploaded it on SharePoint.
