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?

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.


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:

decimal number 45.6

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:

decimal number 45.6 = 40 + 5 + 6/10

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.
Place Value
“Three Hundred Twenty Seven”
keftAs we move left, each position is 10 times bigger!
 Tens are 10 times bigger than Ones
 are 10 times bigger than Tens

… and …

As we move right, each position is 10 times smaller.right
From Hundreds, to Tens, to Ones 
decimals-tenths 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!


  1. 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?
