Daily Reading- 23.04.2020

It would be great if you could spend another 15-20 minutes continuing your book from our 'Recommended Reading List'. I attach the 'Recommended Reading List' again below for you to have a look at! Your challenge is to try to complete reading this book by the end of May- do you think you can complete my challenge?

You may remember from yesterday as well that our '60 second read' challenges at the moment are related to 'Fantasy'. There is another one below for you to have a go at- good luck with this!

This is also your last chance to have a go at the 'Book Emojis Pictionary' game below before I reveal the answers tomorrow and give you another one to have a look at!


What's happening in our World Today- 23.04.2020

Over the past few weeks, we have learnt so much about the great work the NHS is doing in our battles against the Coronavirus. Everyone is playing their part in the fight! Read the NHS article below with the picture of Boris Johnson on it from 'First News'.  After that, either try one of the activities or create your own NHS Rainbow above encouraging everyone to stay safe and 'support the NHS'.

This piece of reading should help you to understand more about our world today!


Punctuation and Grammar- 23.04.2020


Today, we are going to continue the theme of having a 'SPAG' game to play to improve your skills in this area. Todays game is around adding prefixes and suffixes to the beginning and end of words. Click on the picture above to enter the game!


For an additional challenge, in your 'Remote Learning' books, can you think of other words beginning with those prefixes and suffixes? Good luck on your 'word finding' quest!

Subtracting decimals with the same number of decimal places

Click on the picture above to take you to our lesson today. Yesterday, you looked at adding decimals with the same number of decimal places. Today, we will look at subtracting them. Watch the video and then have a go at the worksheets and other activities below. Remember, a maximum of an hours worth of learning.

English Learning- 23.04.2020

Over the past few days, we have been learning about 'Poetry' in our 'Remote Learning' work. We are now approaching the end of this week and our 'overview' of poetry learning.  Do you know who the man is in the picture? He is one of Britain's most famous playwrights and poets and people will even celebrate his birthday in lockdown this year! He used to write a unique style of poetry called 'sonnets'.

Your learning for today is to find out more about this and have a try at writing your own sonnet. The resources below will help you to do this.

Click the picture of the gentleman above to get more of an understanding about sonnets. Good luck!


Afternoon Learning (Art and Fun)- 23.04.2020


If your children like drawing there's lots of inspiration around at the moment, with illustrators offering free online tutorials to help them improve.

A popular one is #DrawWithRob, a website from author and illustrator Rob Biddulph, who's written books including Grrrrr! about a bear called Fred who loses his growl.

His videos, showing children how to create everything from a sausage dog to their very own Fred Bear, are easily accessible on his website here. Children have been sharing their finished drawings with him online using the hashtag #DrawWithRob.


Perhaps you could email and share them with me? Perhaps you could make one of a family member? Or even add one to your sonnet from earlier...

But this can be a very relaxing afternoon activity! Good luck and enjoy...
