Good morning everyone!
We hope you have had a good weekend and have enjoyed the activities we have been setting you. We are so proud of you for keeping up
with your school work. Well done!
We are missing you very much and hope that you are staying safe and keeping busy. Don't forget to help your parents out around the
house when you can as we know that they must be really busy as well! We can't wait to find out about all the wonderful things you've
been doing at home. We are thinking of you all. Here is our next week of activities for you all. Have you been entering the daily
challenges? We’ve really enjoyed seeing so many of the year group getting involved.
Parents- please don’t feel under any pressure to run your home like a school but do make time to practise key skills. Please continue to
read as much as you can and keep expanding your vocabulary. You can currently sign up for free at Oxford Owl Website to get ebooks
for free and take advantage of the current free Audible subscription as well as numerous readings of books on Youtube presently.
Each day, we will set a Maths task, an English task and another task for you to do. Some tasks might take several days. Please don’t
forget that if you are creating a piece of writing you will need to go through the following stages:
1) Planning and research. What do you need to know in order to complete the task? Could you look at examples of similar style
texts to see what worked well to ‘magpie’ ideas and vocabulary.
2) Write. Think about all the things we like to see in your work- a range of sentence starters, range of punctuation and lots of
varied sentence types.
3) Editing. This is the most important stage. Go back and improve your work, up-level the features you have used. You can then
create a best version if you would like.
Why not start the day with a bit of exercise? Joe Wicks is creating daily PE lessons to keep you moving throughout the closure – these
will be live at 9:00am every day on his you tube channel: https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html. There are also
other activities such as Oti’s Dance classes which take place daily or Just Dance videos on YouTube or cosmic yoga. You will be
surprised how much more productive the day is after some morning exercise!
Have a great week!
Ms Hicks, Mrs Rand, Mrs Lester and Miss Ayub
