The prompt this week has been set by Mr Murphy at Crosshall Junior School in Cambridgeshire here in the UK. His prompt is a little different from our usual ones and you will need to think carefully about how you approach it. The prompt is:
Describe your most treasured item without actually giving what it is away.
Things to think about:
Here is Mr.Murphy’s example:
It sits on my finger. It’ been there since April 2014. I chose it with my wife. I really like it; she likes it less so. But, it’s me that’s got to wear it. It goes everywhere with me. I’ll wear it forever. On the odd occasion I take it off, I really worry about losing it! My cold, metal, matt metal object sitting there on my left hand. No one ever really mentions it. I play with it when nervous. But, it’s there for all to see. Especially me! As I finish, I’m looking at it right now…
Are you happy with what an equivalent fraction is?
Every afternoon we spend a brief 10 minutes looking at a mathematical skill - today we looked at equivalent fractions.
More visual thinking was needed today as we went to the ICT suite to have a go on Mathletics; then we reasoned why some nets would or would not create 'proper' 3d shapes.

This week we have a very strange tale indeed! The prompt is part of a sentence and it is:
…and the dog was wearing glasses…
