When planning a piece of writing from a different character's point of view, it is really important to emmerse yourself in that character. 

An emotion chart is a really good way of tracking feelings and emotions. Below is an example of an 'emotion chart'. It is clear that Alma's emotions change dramatically throughout the story. What are they at the beginning of the story? How about compared to the end of the story? When you come to write from Alma's perspective, this will be a really useful tool to have. 

Here is a possible template that you could use.

Today we are carrying on converting between metric units.

If 1kg = 1000g (because kilo means 1000) what is ½ kg?

Yes 500g.

What about 1/10 of a Km if 1000m = 1km?

1/10 of 1km = 100m

Have a go at using these facts to answer the questions below (Starting activity).

If we know that kilo means 1000. What does centi mean? It means 100. So there are 100cm in one metre and 100 centilitres in one litre. You can look back at the knowledge organiser from yesterday to remind you.
