Have a read of the paragraph below. Go through and find all of the imperative verbs.

Don't forget, 'imperative' is just a posh way of saying 'bossy'!

How to Make a Mummy

You will need:

  • A deceased body
  • Canopic jars
  • Natron
  • Palm oil mixed with water from the Nile
  • Linen (lots of it!)
  • Amulets and a book of the dead
  • Make up, fake eyes and hair
  • A long hook
  • A sharp knife

 

What to do:

1. Source a deceased body- live ones wriggle too much! 

2. In order to preserve the deceased's appearance, the brain must be removed through the nose using a white-hot hook; removal is aided by using the hook to slice the brain first.

3. Remove the following organs and place them in the appropriate canopic jar: Imsety- an Egyptian man who guards the liver; Duamutef- a jackal who guards the stomach; Qebehsenuef- a falcon who guards the intestines and Hapi- a baboon who guards the lungs. 

 

Note: do not remove the heart; without this organ, the deceased will not be granted safe passage to the after-life!​​​​​​​

Now, have a look though this PowerPoint, you will have looked at the different type of clauses before so this should just be a recap. 

To summarise:

Main Clause- the main part of your sentence (this will make sense on its own!)

Subordinate Clause- extra information (this will not make sense on its own!)

Relative Clause- this too adds extra information but uses a relative pronoun such as: that, which, who, whose, where and when. 

 

Can you go back to the instructions written above and find any of these clause structures?

 

If you are really stuck, there is some great information on these pages:

Numeracy

Today we will be looking at how to multiply and divide by 10 and 100 (we will need this later on in the week for our percentages!).

 

When you multiply by 10, 100 or 1000, the place value of the digits change. The number is getting larger so the digits move to the left.

 

Multiply by 10

When you multiply by 10 all of the digits move one place to the left. Make sure you fill in any empty spaces with a 0.

21 x 10 = 210

 

 

You would also use the exact same method for decimals! 

1.2 x 10 = 12

 

 

Multiply by 100 and 1000

When you multiply by 100 and 1000 the digits will still move to the left in order to make the number bigger. 

When multiplying by 100 you would move the digits 2 spaces to the left.

When multiplying by 1000 you would move the digits 3 spaces to the left. 

 

56 x 100 = 5600

 

 

0.71 x 100 = 71

 

 

4 x 1000 = 4000

 

 

3.4 x 1000 = 3400

 

 

Now, when you divide you do the same thing except you move the digits to the right to make them smaller!

 

To recap:

multiply by 10 = move 1 space to the left

multiply by 100 = move 2 spaces to the left

multiply by 1000 = move 3 spaces to the left

divide by 10 = move 1 space to the right

divide by 100 = move 2 spaces to the right

divide by 1000 = move 3 spaces to the right

Art

Over the next few weeks, we will start making our Christmas stockings. While you’re at home, make sure you have a good idea of your design. Remember to keep it simple; you will need to be able to sew it!!
