Today, you need to read chapter 16 of The Boy at the Back of the Class and have a think about the following questions:
Pg 169 “..and eagerly pointed to the letter and pencil” What does eagerly mean? How is Tom feeling?
At the bottom of pg 171 How would you feel if you met the queen and got a medal?
At the bottom of pg 172 Why does the narrator cross their fingers behind their back?
After “…keep this a sect” on pg 178 Why do you think the narrator adds this? Should they have told the queen about Syrah?
At the end of the chapter. Do you predict the queen will get the letter? Why?
You don't need to write your answers but I will ask people to share in today's Zoom meeting.
For today's history lesson, you're going to present what you have learnt about the Titanic. You'll need to think about what we've learnt so far (looking back at the information about the Titanic from the start of term will be very helpful) and maybe do some of your own research. Think about the information which you think is most interesting and choose how you will present it- you can make an informative poster or a PowerPoint. You'll need to think about how you present your work too- include pictures, use bubble writing etc. Think back to how we presented our non-chronological reports about rainforest animals to help you.
Once you're finished (and you may not be finished today- you can take your time on this), please either send me a picture of your poster or send in your PowerPoint. I'm excited to see what you come up with.
