Thursday 2nd July
It's rainy and horrible, but I'm still in a good mood. I'm looking forwards to another day with the children, and I'm in class for the full day today which I'm excited about.
Last night I watched the football (Chelsea v West Ham) and we got a take away.
Missing you all, and hope you are staying safe and happy.
Enjoy your day.
For maths today you are going to put all the skills you have been working on this week into practice and solve some ratio and proportion problems.

Persuasive Writing - we've always loved it as a class.
Watch the videos and complete the activities.
For writing you should ensure that you are completing your story.
Many people get to the peak (the main action part of a story) but then end it far too abruptly. I want you to ensure that it's not just a 'then she died, and they were all sad. The end.'
Think about the best stories you have read; think about the best films you have watched. Be clever in the way that your characters react to what has happened. Leave the reader feeling the way you want them to!
