As you watch the clip think about all of the words you could use to describe the atmosphere of the planet, for example toxic, uninhabitable.
Watch the clip again and write down as many facts as you can about the planet. 
Today you are going to write a descriptive paragraph about the planet Pandora. You must use compound sentences in your paragraph and should include 6-8 interesting facts about the planet. 
Friday: Watch the clip of Pandora again. 
Today you will be focusing on describing the creatures on Pandora. 
When you have watched the clip, draw your own version of a creature that would live on Pandora and label it with descriptive words and phrases. Then use these descriptive words and phrases to write a descriptive paragraph about your animal. Remember to use compound sentences. 
We are going to be learning about tone in our art lessons this half term. Use the powerpoint below to learn about how artists use tone in their drawings. 
Have a go at creating tone by practising different techniques, then choose an object from around the house to draw. All you will need is a pencil, a piece of paper and a rubber! 
This term we will be learning all about changes of materials. This week you will be learning about the properties of materials.
