We hope the rain has not dampened your spirits although now is a great time to take a look outside to see what is growing. We have set some more tasks for you to complete. We would love to see more of your work in the comments this week.
We hope you were proud of your setting descriptions and you managed to share them with others. We really enjoyed reading the ones that were posted. Hopefully, this week we will have more to read. We are moving on to character descriptions. The sessions will follow the same format as last week, starting with some reading activities, vocabulary and grammar work before you get chance to write your own character description.
When you are learning the spellings, remember you can use a range of strategies that we have learnt in school. These include pyramid words, writing each letter in a different colour, drawing the shape of the word or write the word without the vowels.
We will again be setting work via The Oak Academy. We are aware that there have been the odd error and we will endeavor to point these out in future weeks although The Oak Academy have updated some of these already. We think that the lessons are appropriately pitched and we would like you to carry on with them. Let us know what parts you are enjoying and anything we can help you with. This week the focus is on identifying and describing reflections before reflecting shapes on a axes.
Well done to the boys who won this week’s battle with over 9000 points. Bilal and Jake were the highest scorers for the boys. Nasia and Celia were the highest scorers for the girls. I wonder who will be victorious in this week’s battle between the classes?
This week, your SATs companion will be set based on the Maths work you will complete with The Oak Academy. The work will be available from Friday after you have completed the lessons.
This week, we would like you to use the following clip to learn how to draw a self portrait.
We have assigned a book on the Scholastic website for Science this week. It is all about Albert Einstein, a famous scientist. We would like you to use the ‘Introduction’, ‘People you May Meet and the ‘Timeline’ on pages 4-11 to create a fact file all about him.
Make sure you are keeping up with your reading. There are lots of different books available via the Scholastic website. Lots of you have been reading about space. We would like you to recommend some of the good books you have read for others to enjoy.
