      Wow Cyran, I’m really pleased you’re working on the blog. Good job.
      3 and 4 are the trickiest answers and you got them both correct- just remember to give plenty of evidence to explain your answer.
      For questions 1 and 2 we’re looking for the names of Gods and the name of a place, so they’re probably all proper nouns and will start with a capital letter.

      Well done for answers 1, 3 and 4.
      For question 2 we’re looking for the name of a place where they got sent. It’s probably a proper noun so it will start with a capital letter. Can you find it?

      Did you watch the video?
      If it was a rectangle the area would be 3 x 4, but because it’s a triangle we have to halve it.

    Good Morning Mrs Leming,
    English,

    I think its a poem because it is set out like a poem and lines 2 and 4 rhyme.

    1. Cronus’s and Rhea’s six children were called: Hestia, Hades, Demeter, Hera and Zeus.

    2. Titans were sent to Tartarus after they were defeted.

    3. The last verse is my favourite because it is the most positive verse and it sounds cheerful.

    4. I think it means they will never be forgotten.

    The answer for maths is 6²cm because I did,

    5cm+4cm=9cm
    9cm+3cm=12cm

    and i know that half of 12 is 6 and I know squared means X2 so i knew it would be 6².

    ENGLISH ! Good morning Mrs leaming

    1. Tartarus, Erebus, Eros and Nyx and Gaia
    2. They sent them to Tartarus .
    3. The one that starts with aided by monsters comes first because it uses the word titanic they mean it like being big or large so it has good description. The second one I chosen is the 1st one because it tells you all the children and it gives you a head start about who is in the story .
    4.It maybe means that there story’s will neve be forgotten .

      3 x 4 would make 12, and that works for a rectangle.
      But this is a triangle.
      Did you watch the video?
      We need to half the answer to find the area of a triangle.

    1) Hestia, Hades, Demeter, Hera, Zeus and Poseidon.
    2) They were sent to Tartarus.
    3) I liked the 6th verse because it ha some semi colons.
    4) I think it means their myths will always be remembered.

      Well done on 1, 2 and 4. I also like semi-colons. But they’ve given you quite a lot of space to write the answer. That means it’s worth more than 1 mark so they want a longer answer.
      Usually with poems we would comment on the mood/ feeling, the vocabulary choices, similes, metaphors, alliteration or even rhyming pattern to explain our opinions.

    12cm2 because a rectangle would be 24cm2 so half that would be 12.

    5cm+4cm= 9cm+3cm=12cm2

      Hi Dhanshri,
      Thanks for showing me your working out.
      You’re right, we do need to half it.
      But if it was a rectangle we would do 3 x 4 for the area.
      Can you work it out now?

        So if the rectangle is 12 co the triangle is 6cm2.

    The area of the right angle triangle is 6 because you have to times the length by the width which is 12 and then you divide it by 2 which gives the answer of 6

      Well done for 1, 3 and 4.
      For number 2 we’re looking for a place they got sent. It’s probably a proper noun, so it will start with a capital letter.

    English:
    1.The 6 children were Tartarus,Erubus, Eros, Nyx and Gaia.
    2.They were dishonored.
    3.My favourite is the one that is at the bottom because it said Ocean and when i think of Ocean i think of beautiful sea life.
    4.I think “Their myths will never die” means that they will never die.

      Good try Zain, did you watch the video?
      If it was a rectangle the area would be 3 x 4 so it would be 12.
      But for a triangle we have to halve the measurement. So can you see the correct answer now?

    The Greek alphabet was the only alphabet that you can sound out. They first wrote Greek right to left than right to left and left to right repeatedly after they wrote left to right.The Greek alphabet is a foundation of most of are alphabets today.
