Daily Reading- 21.04.2020
Many of you will have now chosen a book from our 'Recommended Reading List' (attached) to read over the next week or so. Use this list to see how many of these books you can tick off on our return to school. Some of them are absolute classics! Remember, you can use your 'Reading Band' book as well to read.
In addition, attached below today is a '60 second read' for the children to complete. There will be one of these now each day of the week to challenge them to become more fluent in their reading. The theme for this week's one is 'Sport'- good luck Eagles and try your best to complete these!
Collective Discussions- 21.04.2020
Is it right for countries to spend money on sending people into space when so many people live in poverty on Earth?
Discuss this question with your Mum/ Dad/ Brother/ Sister (anyone in your household) across the course of the day. In your 'Remote Learning' books, can you record their answers? At the end, can you write a summary of your thoughts to this question after having different discussions? Remember, these are just your thoughts and opinions...
Punctuation and Grammar- 21.04.2020
Have a go at our next 'SPAG Activity Mat' (attached below). Remember, you can use your computer or the internet to help you with any of the answers- this is not a test! The idea of doing these is to revise and help you to remember different parts of the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar curriculum. If there are any bits you are unsure about, please let me know.

English Learning- 21.04.2020
Over the past couple of days, we have been learning about the book 'Fantastic Mr Fox'. We will continue to learn about this with the aim of being to write a story in the style of 'Fantastic Mr Fox' by the end of the week. In order to do this, over the next couple of days, our lessons will focus around understanding parts of text and trying to get your creative writing juices flowing...
Todays learning however will centre around the 'basics' of writing and being able to identify word classes in your writing. Today, we will be looking at identifying nouns and being able to identify the different types of nouns.
Click on the 'Fantastic Mr Fox' picture above to take you to the lesson. You can use your 'Remote Learning' book to write any answers in. Please bear in mind that this session should last from 45 minutes- 1 hour so you do not need to continue with activities beyond this time...
Afternoon Learning (RE)- 21.04.2020
Attached is a Powerpoint for children to look at. They should complete JUST ONE of the activities that is on there. Our focus for todays learning is on 'New Life' which is very appropriate at this time of the year. I really want them to get outside at this point and look at where they see 'New Life' in their environment. It might be, instead of the activities on the Powerpoint, they just want to draw a picture on plain A4 paper of where they see 'New Life' and colour this in...
I have not included a link to 'Badger's Parting Gift' as I want to discuss this book with the children on our return- there are some more sensitive subjects in here!
