Good morning to my wonderful Woodpeckers!
I hope you had a fantastic 'Easter Break', even though it might not have felt quite the same as normal. I would love to see and hear about any of the Easter activities I set you to do, or just send me an email a bit like a diary or a letter telling me what you have been up to for the past couple of weeks. I really miss seeing and speaking to each and every one of you - and especially all of the laughs we had in class! What is your funniest memory from this year? Mine is the dressing up on our Victorian trip! Ha ha!
Anyway, below is your learning for today.
Take care and keep smiling.
Thank you for all of your lovely emails yesterday. It was so great to hear from you all!
Hope you enjoyed getting back to some learning, your next lot is below.
Any questions, feel free to email and ask. When you are done, send me pictures or email and tell me how you got on.
Good morning Woodpeckers,
Here is your learning for today.
You are going to focus on the settings for your stories.
Palace? Desert? Island? Cave of wonder? Round City?
It’s up to you where it is! When you have decided, describe what you can see, hear, smell, feel, taste.
Can you think of any similes to describe it? You can draw a picture of some of the settings and write words to describe it around the edge.
What is a setting?
The importance of setting:
Compare and order numbers: Watch this video as a recap to ordering numbers up to 7 digits.
Now have a go at the quiz questions. Please write the questions into your maths book and show evidence of your methods and any workings out. There are two different levels that you can choose from.
In the top corner of your rapid recall whiteboard, you will have a space to write your number.
Range 10-20: 17
Range 30-60 : 57
Range 350-450 : 447
Range 30-99 : 96
During our topic, we have learnt about calligraphy and how it has been used as decorative art. Do some research and in your books, produce some of your own piece of decorative calligraphy.
Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.
Please practise your spellings daily. These lists are on our class page. You can practise the Year 1/2, Year 3/4 and the Year 5/6 spelling lists. You all know which spellings you should be practising anyway.
Gooooooooooooood morning Woodpeckers!
Rise and shine - it's Friday!
Today is our last day of the week, and our final week on our school topic, 'Early Islamic Civilisation'. Next week, we will be starting a brand new topic...it'll be a surprise on Monday but I think you are going to like it.
Anyway, enjoy your learning and send me anything you do. If you want me to put your story on our class page, then type it up and send it over!
Spend some time planning your story. Create a story map with all of the key events in your story. Remember to try and draw 10 steps.
Make sure you have a beginning, middle and an end – with problems and solutions in between!
Remember to think about the plot of the story…this might help!
Then, write your final story. You have got the paper for this in your pack.
Give it a good title at the top!
Remember to focus on describing the characters and settings. Use your best handwriting and check your spelling and punctuation as you go.
