Happy Monday 4A,
Firstly, I hope you all have had a relaxing and enjoyable break and managed to make the most of the sunshine! I was unwell for the first few days of the holidays but thankfully, I am feeling a lot better. Thank you to those of you who have been sending me pictures and updates of what you have been up to! It was lovely to hear from you. Happy birthday to those of you who had your birthday during the break! I hope you had a great day!
Here are some pictures of what I have been up to during the holidays.
I have been baking and cooking a lot! These gooey chocolate brownies were delicious, especially with some vanilla ice cream! Ramadan is coming up soon so we prepped lots of samosa (150!!!!), spring rolls and cheese balls (potato, cheese, chicken, onion and spices!) ready for eating during the next few weeks.
I have been enjoying going for walks and spending time with my family. We have had a few virtual birthday parties for some of my family via Zoom. My best friend who recently got married abroad finally managed to get back to the UK so I have been facetiming her lots. I dropped off some wedding gifts to her house but it is the most bizarre feeling standing over 2 metres away from your friends and family and talking to them!
I also have an unhealthy obsession with the new animal crossing game on my nintendo switch. There's lots of hype about this game on social media at the moment - try it, it is so addictive!
Feel free to share what you have been up to over the holidays. I'd love to hear from you all.
I'll speak to you tomorrow!

Start your morning off with a bit of exercise. You can follow along with Joe Wickes https://www.youtube.com/thebodycoachtv or if that's not your cup of tea, go for a walk and get some fresh air. Ride a bike. Grab a skipping rope and skip. Hopscotch. Anything. Just do something you enjoy.
Please complete Lesson 1 - Make a Whole
There is a flashback activity for you to complete (at the start of the video tutorial) which is just a few questions to re-cap on what you have previously learnt. Watch the tutorial, answer the questions, then marks your answers or ask a grown up to mark them for you.
Before the holidays, we did the first couple of texts in this reading assessment. I would like to to have a go at the third text, which is about the story "Snowball and Ebony". Once you have completed this, mark your answers.
Mrs Stansfield has kindly made a user guide document for Accelerated Reader. Each child was given five books before school closed and I would imagine some of you would have finished those books by now. Please remember to take a quiz on each book. If you have other books at home that you've read, try to do a quiz on those too. As Mrs Stansfield said, it is not a memory test; you can have your book to hand whilst you are taking the quiz. Keep referring back to the book to help you answer the questions. If you are reading a chapter book (especially a thick book), I would advise you to write a short summary of each chapter after you have read it. You can write it on a post it note or a bit of paper and keep it in the book for each chapter. When you are doing the quiz, it will make it easy for you to scan through the book. I have attached the user guide document below and have also included a photo of it for anyone who is unable to download the document.
Mrs Martin has very kindly planned for us do a writing activity this week which is both interactive and fun. The instructions and details have been attached in the document below.
