The Saw Scaled Spined Viper’s are a type of big snake that live in South and Central America and are very dangerous.

SSSV’s have turquoise scales and pink spots so they can hide in tall grass and attract mates.

Did you know? SSSV’s can be agresive to human beings with their nerve affecting venom
These animals can be found in the Amazon rainforest and the Mexican planes. They love the rocks and damp soil on their rough scaley body.
Today, I want you to really use your imagination and come up with 6 unusual ways to keep yourself entertained.
1. Take a simple idea and develop it.
Make a cup of tea ► making a cup of tea while playing the ukelele ► making a cup of peppermint tea while playing my favourite tune on the ukelele
2. Use your imagination and come up with something absolutely crazy.
Walk around Meadowhall on your hands dressed as Captain Underpants while eating pickled onion Monster Munch crisps!
3. Hyperbole – it means exaggerating, making something sound better or worse than it is
Staring at the screen non – stop for two weeks, I was slowly turning into a zombie
Make each idea different and avoid repetition or the reader might get bored. Surprise the reader so each idea is a totally new suggestion. Get some ideas from the following examples.
• You can apply to the Guinness Book of Records for the world record as child couch potato.
• You can try surfing TV channels, and see if you can keep up with the plot of 5 programmes at the same time.
• When it rains, you can play raindrop races by betting on which drop will reach the bottom of the window pane first.
• You can train the spider that lives in the plughole to be an acrobat and develop skills as an arachnid trapeze artist.
• You can draw anything from a Gruffalump eating a cheese pasty to a Hippocrampus that is stuck in a drain.
Or Look at this crazy guy for some crazy ideas!

Punctuation and grammar
Our PAG learning this week is all about time connectives. These are words that link different parts of a sentence together. Without connectives, our writing becomes a little bit boring. They help structure our writing and turn shorter sentences into longer ones.
Time connectives are used to show that events take place at different times. You will have used lots of these connectives in instruction texts, explanation texts and stories.I have included the task below for you to complete.
