LO: To independently write a narrative using descriptive tools.


SC: I can develop simple sentences using descriptive language.


I can develop my sentences using creative sentence openers.


Before you start today’s learning, you will need to go over your story and storyboard. Think about writing your final paragraph.


You are to then write the resolution paragraph (3rd paragraph). You should be looking at the simple sentences written in your plan and developing these into more complex, descriptive sentences.


Make sure you give yourself enough time to compete this paragraph.


Key Vocabulary:

character description, storyboard, similes, expanded noun phrase, list of 3, conjunctions

In this lesson, you will learn to regroup twice before doing the subtraction. It involves regrouping the hundreds and then the tens before subtracting the ones.


To begin this lesson, you will start with the ‘In Focus’ task. Use Base 10 materials to represent 300. Start by subtracting the ones. You will need to regroup 1 ten as there is 0 ones in 300. However, there are also 0 tens in 300, therefore you have to regroup 1 hundred into 10 tens. Once there are 10 tens, you can regroup 1 ten into 10 ones. Then proceed to subtract. After you have the answer, use the column method to subtract. Did you get the correct answer? If not, where did you go wrong? Check through the regrouping done on the column method to check you have done it correctly.


During Guided Practice, you will use the column method and show the regrouping.

Learning Objectives

  • To learn how prehistoric man-made art and to reflect this style in their work
  • I can identify animals important to people of prehistory
  • I understand the process of making art in prehistory
  • I know that prehistoric people painted with muted earth colours
  • I can start to understand why early man created art


Before you start today’s learning, look at the images from the Presentation: Prehistoric art. Look at the details and complexity of the images. Highlight details that interest you; name the animals depicted and to describe the patterns, colours and textures in the images.


These paintings were produced approximately 17,000 years ago, before there were any houses, buildings, roads, cars, electricity or schools! To the people of this time, wild animals were their primary source of food and were very important to them. They are huge paintings done on the walls of caves in extremely dark places, so they would have needed oil lamps (made from stone and animal fat) to see what they were doing.


If you wanted to show people in 5,000 years time what your favourite animals native to Britain were, what would you draw?


look at the Presentation: Line drawings and photos of native British animals provided and then choose two or three animals that you love and would like to show people in the future.


Look at drawings and photos of native British animals.


Pick out the key geometric shapes in the photographs and line drawings to help map out the relative sizes and shapes.


Draw a picture of your favourite animal on paper, trying to replicate the prehistoric style. You should lightly map out your sketch first to get the proportions right, then go over the main outline in a darker pencil line.


Then add colour to your favourite animal using pencil or crayon in colours appropriate to prehistory (i.e. earthy tones).


After the animal is drawn in rough form, think about how it might be improved, such as adding more detail, correcting some shapes, adding fur, colour or pattern.
