English - Monday 1st March
De: De sentences
A De: De sentence has two parts.
The 1st part gives you a description
‘The vampire is a dreadful creature…’
The 2nd part gives further detail
‘… it kills by sucking all the blood from its victims’
The 2 parts are separated by a colon (:)
The vampire is a dreadful creature: it kills by sucking all the blood from its victims.
An example for our woodland topic may be;
The blackbird is one of the most common birds in the UK: there are over 6 million pairs!
NOTE - We don't start with a capital letter after a colon, even though there is a long pause, just a little longer than after a comma.
Complete the De: De sentences and try to create some of your own.

Sir Kyffin Williams
Sir John Kyffin Williams (born 1918, died 2006) was a Welsh landscape painter who lived on the Island of Anglesey. He is widely thought of of the most influential Welsh landscapes artist.
Look at the examples of his work, before trying to create your own landscape in his style of a setting you are familiar with.
I’ve attached a few landscape shots of Glyncoch, Coed Y Cwm and Ynysybwl for you to start with, but you can use your own too.
