It's been great seeing all of your work this week. Have a look later to see if your work has made it to the Hall of Fame, it will be up later this week as both of us are in school all day today.
Meet your new teacher
Yesterday, 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 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.
Make a list of seven kind things you can do for someone else. This could be for people you live with (e.g. do the dishes one evening, tidy your room, read with your brother or sister) or people you don't get to see every day (send someone a compliment by text, draw a picture and send a photo of it to your grandparents, etc).
English - Writing
Your plan from Monday should have 5 parts to it, these 5 parts should become the 5 main paragraphs of your story. We looked at paragraphs the other week as part of our grammar work but as a reminder here is a quick recap.
In our writing it is really important to make sure we are using paragraphs consistently. Each paragraph should be at least 3 or 4 sentences long.
To help you with your paragraphs when you're writing next week, today's task is to write an opening sentence for each of your 5 paragraphs. Each of these sentences should start with a fronted adverbial and you should make sure that each fronted adverbial starts with a different word.
Watch this video if you need to remind yourself of what a fronted adverbial is.
English - Reading
Lady Eslanda arrives on the scene in the middle of the night. Will she convince Spittleworth to spare the lives of Goodfellow and the other prisoners?
Collect as many adjectives as you can to describe Lady Eslanda. These can be taken directly from the text or implied.
So far this week we have broken down the two separate parts of the clock, the minute hand and the hour hand.
Today we are going to combine them again to help us read the time accurately.
Follow this link to watch a video reminding you of how to tell the time.
Try answering these questions below. Alternatively, you can do the 2do on Purple Mash. Some of you might have done it before during the Easter holidays, but it isalways good to practise telling the time accurately.
This week, we're trying to answer the question, What is the world wide web?
Follow this link to see if you can answer this big question.
Share any new knowledge with everyone else on the class Purple Mash blog.
Now you know a bit more about the world wide web, see if you can continue to develop your coding skills on this task: https://studio.code.org/s/aquatic/stage/1/puzzle/1
We miss you all!
