Wednesday 6th May 2020
Hello everyone! I hope you've had a lovely week so far! Thank you to those of you who have already sent me an email with what you've been up to. Remember to send me one if you haven't yet! As you will know from our English work, this Friday is a very important day as its the 75th anniversary for VE Day! I have absolutely loved reading your diary entries and can't wait to see more of them! Here are some fun VE Day activities that you might want to complete this week or over the weekend. If you do complete any, please send me some pictures in an email! Stay safe, enjoy

Hello Chameleons! What do you think of our new class page layout? Hopefully you find it easier to navigate! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and have managed to have some fun at home . It has been lovely to hear from most of you this week! I've loved finding out what you've all been getting up to so thank you! Harry B sent me his iMovie on The Anglo Saxons this weekend so I thought it would be lovely to pop it on here for you all to watch! It must be strange not seeing everyone as we normally do so the video might help to spread some cheer! It certainly made me smile! This week's home learning consists of Maths, English, History and PSHE. Read on below to find out what you're going to be getting up to!
This week, we will be continuing again with fractions, this time learning to add and subtract them (I personally think this is quite easy based on what you've been doing already!). I understand that fractions is a really tricky topic so I want to say a huge well done to you all for working so hard on it while at home! Also a huge thank you to the parents for persevering with the subject! Lessons 3 & 4 are quite challenging so have a go but if you do find it difficult, please don't worry! We will fill any gaps once we are back at school (whenever that may be!). I've added the documents for the week below as I'm concerned that White Rose is going to delete them. You should however still be able to use the website for the video links. This week we are focusing on Summer Term w/c 27th April. I've also allocated lots of fractions activities on Education City, so you can begin to consolidate your learning, as well as some Mathletics activities. As always, if you have any questions or need some extra help, don't hesitate to email me!
This Friday 8th May is the 75th anniversary of VE day and this is very special! As it is such an important anniversary, we have decided to set your English work for this week around it. We would like you to write a diary entry detailing the celebrations as they occurred on the very first VE Day 75 years ago on 8th May 1945 when than one million people celebrated in the streets throughout Great Britain to mark the end of the European part of the war. The documents below include some more information on the diary entry, as well as some information that will help you to write it. As always, please remember to practise your spellings on Spelling Shed, read the suggested book on Bug Club and read your favourite stories at home too! I will be giving special shout outs to those children who complete activities on Spelling Shed and Bug Club this week!
I would like you to continue your learning on The Anglo Saxons this week. I must say, I was very impressed with the engagement from you all towards this topic and I am looking forward to us learning more together! Thank you so much for the amazing work you did last week, as well as all of the extra things that you found out and created! This week, we will be focusing on exactly when The Anglo Saxons arrived in Britain, as well as developing our understanding of the key words invaders and settlers. The main activity for this week will be to create a timeline so once again you're free to get creative! Have a look at the documents below for some extra information and inspiration for how you may present your timeline.
We know that it must be tricky for you all with things still being so unusual and we want to thank you again for all of your hard work as well as say a big well done for how quickly you've adapted to the changes! In reflection of the huge changes that we have all experienced recently, we thought it would be a good idea to set some activities that help you to think carefully about your feelings, how you can make sure that you stay positive and what to do if you are having a down day. The documents below include some information that we think may be helpful towards this, as well as some creative activities to help you to get your head around the recent changes. I've also included the link to our Wellbeing page in case you are looking for some extra activities to do, as well as the link to the 'Coronavirus for Children' story, which I think makes it much easier to understand everything (I read this story last week with the children in school and it really helped them to understand!).
Finally as always, remember to stay active! You may be into the routine of doing PE with Joe Wicks every morning or you may be looking for something different now! Check out the PE & Sport Blog for some ideas or take a look at the document attached below for some different challenges . Once again a huge well done for everything you're doing, I'm so proud of you all! Remember to send me an email with what you've been up to throughout the week! I'll be in touch again on here later in the week!
Keep safe! Miss Makepeace x
