Like we did during last week's learning, please read through the persuasive text (Should children be allowed to own pets?) and then use the [ ] to separate the text into sections according to the symbols on the planning sheet (like we did in class). 
 
After this, take the main points from each section and record the information using bullet points in the corresponding box on the planning sheet.

Writing:
Watch this video on YouTube (check with a grown up first).
Write the following sentence types using inspiration from the film:
Simile- e.g. His sword twinkled like a star in the sky
if,if,if, then- e.g. If he could reach his opponent, if he could engage in a deadly battle, if he were finally killed, then he could attain his aim of reaching Valhalla.
First word last- Defeated, he stood on the mountain top defeated.

Victorious Viking reading comprehension (see below)  Read through the text and answer the questions. There are 3 different difficulty levels (indicated by the stars). Start with the 2 star questions- if you are finding them too tricky, then try the 1 star. If you find them to easy, try the 3 star!
 
Writing task- Use this link to the video on Literacy Shed. Watch the video and then have a go at writing a description of the setting at the start of the video. Try to use as much imaginative and interesting language as you can. Simile, metaphor, personification and amazing adjectives and adverbs are all welcome!
