Thursday 7th May

Good morning 5G

 

Today is our last day of learning for the week, as tomorrow is a bank holiday for VE day. Take a quick look over on the Photo Gallery, someone from our class has made the most amazing VE day bunting, have a look at why it is so special. I hope all the learning this week has really given you a deeper understanding of why we celebrate and why it is so important we remember these special dates. If you do decide to do some work tomorrow (some of you might get bored - who knows), there are lots of resources on all the folders and you can always do an extra activity from the VE day grid. If you have any socially distancing street parties or if you have decorated your houses, I would love to see some pictures.

 

First lesson today is Maths, its the White Rose Home Learning.

Summer Term - Week 3 (w/c 4th May) - Lesson 4 - Calculate perimeter

They look like they are putting the Friday challenge on but it will be different with a Maths / Cooking collaboration so if you want to you can test yourself with that tomorrow.

 

For Guided Reading we have our final non-fiction text this week, which is all about VE day. The answers are on the final page.

English is another Spag activity sheet, check your answers and look up anything you still don't understand. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zhrrd2p

It's also the final day on the VE activities so have a look and see which activity you want to do today. I have found another set of clips with different peoples stories about VE day.

I have added an extra folder today called Learning for Life, inside there are four short activities and two lessons. They are learning about ways to help you stay well and look after yourself during the lockdown. 

 

Finally, I am super excited about this news. https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52556379

This Newsround article is all about famous people reading the Harry Potter books, I know some of you (like me) are huge Harry Potter fans and the list of famous people who obviously love them as well has really surprised me. So watch the article and then sit back and listen to lots of famous people read to you. That is definitely more exciting than me reading to you at the end of the school day!

 

Stay safe over the long weekend. I hope you get to enjoy a bit of the sunshine in your gardens or on you once a day exercise. Don't forget I want to see anything exciting that you get to do.

 

Take care.

 

Mrs Garside
