Friday 24th April

Happy Friday 5G.


It is the last day of the school week, so lets work super hard and then you can have some fun at home over the weekend - the weather is supposed to be lovely on Saturday. Even more of you sent emails and pictures yesterday, thank you. It really cheers me up seeing you all having fun and doing some great Home Learning, when I am working on my own at home - it is quite lonely not being at school with all your smiling faces. If any of you did me some beautiful World Earth Day art please take pictures and send them, I would love to see them.


First lesson is Maths, from White Rose, Summer Term – Week 1 (w/c 20 April) - Friday Maths Challenge.

It is a bit different today but looks like lots of fun. They get trickier as you go through so see how far you can get!


For Guided Reading, this is going to be our last newspaper article. I am putting a choice on for you today. There is a text called 'The Iron Man', which is based around the fictional book. Or you could chose the 'Pure Hell',  which is about flooding (something we have learnt a lot about earlier on in the year). You can do which ever you prefer, some of you might want to do both and that is fantastic. I would advise you read both, even if you only answer the questions on one of the them, as they are further examples of newspaper articles that you might be able to magpie from.


After completing you final newspaper Guided Reading, I hope you have got a few new ideas to edit and improve your newspaper article. Once it is finished, I have attached a final checklist for you to assess your own work. Be objective. What is good? What could be better? Do you have anything missing? You can still edit and improve even at this stage.

Once you have finished your Maths and English, I have a fun task for the afternoon. It is a Lockdown Time Capsule. The idea is you complete the activities from the booklet and keep it for the future. This period in time is something people will learn about in the classroom when you are all super old and you will have first hand experience of what it was like to live through these strange times. There are writing tasks and drawing tasks and it even asks you to interview a member of your family.


Now it is time to relax and enjoy the weekend. Take pictures and send me emails to let me know some of the activities you are doing. We have got science experiments, cooking, art and growing things so far. I wonder what else you are all up to? I am planning on baking this weekend, I will put my pictures on the Photo Gallery on Monday morning.


Stay safe.
