With the current and future home learning packs there is English SPAG resources daily which you have already started, and a piece of writing to complete over the week. This week’s writing task is a book review.
We have had practise at writing a book review (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) before we left school. Try and think back to our plans and how we structured our writing to be the best that we could be. Remember how we planned our writing with an introduction, author background, synopsis and finally a summery and evaluation. Today may be a good day to look back and check you have got all the points you need.

Today’s lessons:
Group 1 maths
Arithmetic starter followed by finding the perimeter of rectilinear shapes. I will try and upload some slides to help you.
English – SPAG
Using verbs. This will be the sheet ‘I can make the auxiliary verb and the main verb agree’.
Begin by finding out what we mean by an auxiliary verb.

Group 2 maths

Dojo message Wednesday 22nd April

Good morning everyone,

With the current and future home learning packs there is English SPAG resources daily which you have already started, and a piece of writing to complete over the week. This week’s writing task is a book review.

We have had practise at writing a book review (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) before we left school. I will attach some model examples to help you with your book review this week. Feiza had a question about how the book review should be structured for pack 1 which I would like to share my answer as I think it will help you all. Stick to what you know. You could begin with an introductory paragraph focusing on the 5W’s and possibly with some information about the author, a synopsis to summarise the plot and characters, describe your favourite part/setting/character and finally evaluate the book including a rating. If you wish to illustrate or do a copy of the front cover that would be great too. It is always best to be authentic with your book review, so choose a book that you absolutely love! If you need any help then I’m more than happy to help with this.

Pack 1:
Today’s lessons are: Spelling, punctuation and grammar: identifying and spelling past tense verbs.
Mathematics: Calculating the perimeter of a rectangle

Please watch the BBC Bitesize video before completing the task and refer to the slides before completing the task. Try to move on from adding the total of the 4 sides of the rectangle together, to multiplying the 2 opposite sides.

Pack Two:
Today’s lessons are: Spelling, punctuation and grammar: identifying and spelling past tense verbs. Mathematics: selecting money

Please watch the BBC videos at https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zp8dmp3/articles/zcrq2p3 before completing the task.

If you get stuck or need any extra help please don’t hesitate to message me with your questions.

Take care,

Miss Malek.

Good morning everyone,

I hope that you all had a great start back yesterday and managed to get back in to the swing of things. Like us all, it can be difficult to re-adjust after a long period of time off and even more so not been back in the school environment. It was lovely to hear from some of the children and parents and hear what you have been up to. Keep your imagination going and make the most of the beautiful weather we are having by exploring outside safely where you can.

Pack 1:
Today’s lessons are: Spelling, punctuation and grammar: extending sentences with conjunctions.

Please watch the BBC video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6jWiE7CvSk before completing the conjunction task.

After you have completed the conjunctions task, practise completing the sentences after the conjunction with a different clause of your own. Write your sentences in your red books.

For example:
Question 1. Pip has been Sir Ansell’s squire for just over a month since he turned eight.

Mathematics: Calculating perimeter.

Pack Two:
Today’s lessons are: Spelling, punctuation and grammar: question marks and Mathematics: counting money in pounds.
