Good morning 1S!
How are you? I hope you have had a lovely weekend. I have been on a few walks. The sun has been lovely hasn’t it?
I would again like to send a special message to all our families and children who are celebrating the month of Ramadan. I hope you all have a happy, peaceful, safe and blessed month. Ramadan Mubarak to you all!

Here are some activities to complete today:
Please complete your spelling test. Use the spelling sheet that is labelled 'Test Date Monday 27th April 2020' in the ‘Spellings’ folder. Maybe an older sibling could test you? Once you have done this, please practise your letter formation.
Have a look at next week's spellings, these are saved in the 'Spellings' folder as ‘Spellings 27.04.20’.
Phase 5 Sentence Substitution. You will need to log in to access this game. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/
Read the sentences and move the words around to make new sentences. Do they make sense?

Here’s my description after 2 days.
The Moon is a natural satellite that was created 4.5 billion years ago. It orbits the Earth and also rotates every 27 days. The moon is grey and white. You are not able to hear any sound on the moon because there is no air. Also, if you dropped two objects, like a heavy hammer and a light feather, they would land at the same time. As there is no air, there is no resistance. Everything and everybody would feel lighter on the Moon than they do on Earth. A person who weighs 60kg on Earth would only weigh 10 kilograms on the Moon because the Earth is 6 times bigger than the Moon.
Edit your description again. Check for capital letters and full stops and make sure that every sentence makes sense. Also check your spelling – you can use Google. Do your facts link together well?
Here’s a little Science Investigation for you to do:
Choose a heavy item from your home (but make sure that it isn’t breakable) and get a piece of paper.
Ask somebody who is really tall to drop both items at the same time from as high up as they possibly can.
Your next video clip to watch is of the Apollo Moon landing in 1969:
There are some more questions to answer so that you learn more facts to help you write more about the Moon.
I'm sure you are ready for some lunch now!
In RE this half term we are going to be thinking about what makes our world special.
Ask your child, ‘What makes our world great for you?’ Have a look at the images from around the world by clicking on the slides:
What is amazing about these photos? If you could take a photo of anything what would it be? Why?
Pick two photos and write a sentence about each one, stating what makes it amazing. If you can't print this out, could you draw two images?
If you would like to, create a poster of some of the things you think are amazing in the world. Here is a template:
How are you doing with your reading books? Which has been your favourite book so far? Why?
