SATs information for parents

The children have come back rested and are now ready to start preparing for SATs. The government has issued a document  for parents outlining key information. To access this please follow the link :

To add  a modern focus to our World War Two studies, we also invited Abbie from the Red Cross to talk to us about modern conflict. We learnt some interesting facts and considered issues faced by people across the world.

Unfortunately we have been hit by some nasty bugs this week! So, here is some work that we have been doing this week that you can catch up with over half term! Just use lined paper and bring it in on Monday. 

 

If you have been at school, you may wish to try your hand at a different genre!

 

We watched the clip about World War 2 again!  Here is the link:

 https://www.literacyshed.com/beyondthelines.html 

 

Now, you need to complete a piece of writing inspired by this clip. You need to show you understand the success criteria for the type of writing you choose. We had great fun in class making our own writing choices and using our imagination! Some ideas to get you going  -

 

  • try writing the letter in the clip! 
  • you could write a diary entry for the grandpa as a young soldier
  • a story from the children's point of view
  • a flashback!

 

If you would like to do more, we also write a poem about the Blitz using Boomtastics and personification. Think about what you might see, hear, feel.....

 

And finally - homework pages! 

Spelling – Pg 43                  Punctuation – Pg 32-33

Grammar – Pg 8                 Number, Ratio and Algebra – Pg 35-36

 

Have a lovely half term and see you soon!

Ms Taylor
