Monday - watch the video and complete half of the comprehension questions

Tuesday - watch the video and complete the rest of the comprehension questions. There is an extension set of questions if you want to do those as well. 

Wednesday - planning a description of the machine using the planning sheet available. If you can't print it you can write the headings in your book and then list your ideas under each heading.

Thursday - writing your description. Don't forget to include the correct spelling and punctuation, good vocabulary, similes, expanded noun phrases and lots of description. it should be between half a page and a page in length. 

Friday - Edit your work using the checklist provided and then redraft your description.
