Congratulations on reaching the end of another week at school. We only have two weeks left now so let's keep going.
If you haven't already done so, have a look at yesterday's good learning blog.
Meeting your Year 5 teacher
On Wednesday, you should have received an email with an invitation to come into school on Monday afternoon (6th July) to meet your Year 5 teacher and for us to wish you a happy summer holiday.
Monday afternoons are when we normally have our book swap. We won't be handing out any new books next week but please bring along any book swap books or other school reading books you might have at home as we will have the returns box out for you to put them in.
We will be meeting in the playground (or in the hall if it is raining) and you will be in groups of maximum 15 children. You will be asked to physically distance.
If you are in Group 1, please come to the main gate at 1:00 pm.
If you are in Group 2, please come to the main gate at 1:35 pm
You will be given your report and your exercise books to take home so bring a plastic bag with you.
It will be great to see as many of you as possible, but we know that some of you are unable to come in and we understand that. We will make sure your report is sent home.
Have a look below to see which group you are in. Let us know if you have any questions.
English - Writing
Today, we are going to start writing our story. It's an extra paragraph that comes before the timeline of events you have planned for. This paragraph's job is to set the scene for the reader.
Have a read of the example below to give you an idea.
English - Reading
In Chapter 20, the King wakes up to find that a lot of things have changed. Spittleworth is continuing to build the web of lies, and everyone seems to be falling for it.
"From an inner pocket, Spittleworth pulled out a most gorgeous gold medal, almost as large as a saucer. Embossed upon the medal was a monster with gleaming ruby eyes, which was being fought by a handsome, muscular man wearing a crown. The whole thing was suspended from a scarlet velvet ribbon."
This description should make it easy for you to draw the medal that will be presented to the families of Beamish and Button. Have a go at drawing the most gorgeous gold medal you can.
So far this week, we have been thinking about telling the time, but there are also lots of words related to time that we need to make sure we understand.
Today's task is to research what each of these words means and create a poster explaining them.
Try to link them to the other units of measurement for time. For example, there are ___ seconds in a minute.
Watch Soar – a short film about a young girl who helps a boy pilot find his way home before it is too late.
Discuss these questions with someone at home.
Make your own picture of what you think outer space would look like.
Stay safe, keep smiling and relax.
