Good Morning Children and Your Parents.
We hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend break. The weather hasn’t been great so it feels a bit like autumn, which is funny because this week in English we are focusing on the season of autumn. Thank you to all the parents who emailed pictures of their child’s work. It is always wonderful to see how you are all getting on. Please keep sending us pictures or videos and we will upload them onto our class pages to share with everyone. You are all SUPER AMAZING!
The NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) usually come into school, but as they can't do that they have sent us this special assembly. It's all about 'Speak Out and Stay Safe'. Please make sure you listen carefully because it shares some very important messages and gives information about things we can do to stay safe. Click on the video when you are ready.
Here are today’s activities:
Let's get started with today's tasks, starting with a Joe Wicks workout:
We hope you have practiced your spellings from last week. Don’t worry you can all have a quick practice before you do your test. GOOD LUCK!
Here are this week spellings. As you can see we are going to be focusing on the /v/ sound at the end of words.
The final e is silent, so you will only hear and pronounce the /v/ sound, but remember that this does not always act as a split digraph (which changes the vowel sound).

Here is another reminder about this week spelling rule. Click on the PowerPoint when you are ready.
This week we are going to be reading a story and then completing linked phonics activities. Today's story is about Queen Victoria. I hope you enjoy the story.
Read the following information about the queen. Underline all of the ve words that you can see and then choose one of the things to draw.
Break Time: Let’s get ready to do a mindfulness activity.
Mental and oral starter:
Practice your 2, 5 and 10 times tables by clicking on the game. You will have ten questions to answer. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10
Here's your Flashback page to help you remember things that we've learned last week.
Press play quickly when you open up the PowerPoint so that you don't see the answers until you're ready!

Problem of the day:
Break Time: Let’s get ready for our Super Movers activity.
We are going to have a look at another Julia Donaldson story this week. We hope you are enjoying them so far. Again, we are going to read the story in parts. Let’s start with our prediction task:
Can you remember what a parable is?
Jesus often taught his followers by telling parables because they are a simple way of teaching a lesson. He taught the parable of the lost son to show people that God loves them and is happy when they return to him.
Today you will be looking at another parable called The Good Samaritan.
Have you ever heard of this parable before?
What do you think it might be about?
Go through the story of the Good Samaritan on the slides.
What do you think Jesus was trying to teach us through this parable?
First, you will need to fill in the blanks to describe the story of the good Samaritan, then fill in the hand by writing about one person that you could lend a helping hand to this week and describe how you will help them.
Use the set of Scenario Cards and lay them face down on the table. Pick one at a time to discuss.
When you have finished discussing each of the scenarios, choose one card and write about what you would do in that situation.
Today for Music, we are going to sing some Autumn songs linked to our English work. Three of them are the poems that you read this morning. Which is your favourite?
It’s always good to finish the day off with a story. Make sure you are sitting nice and comfortably.
We hope you have all had a fab day and a great start to the week. Thank you for all your hard work today.
Bye for now and we shall see you all tomorrow.
Miss Sykes and Mrs Ahmad
