English Writing

We are going to continue with the radio blogging this week. The past two weeks they have been building a story a chapter a day. It can sometimes take a bit of time for them to be approved and loaded and some people have been concerned that their parts have disappeared. What I would recommend is writing your story on a Word Document and having an adult help you copy across the chapter each day. This also allows you to check your chapters line up and make sense as a whole story.

Each day, perhaps have a look at the final task of the day whilst listening to the earlier parts of the show. You could start jotting ideas down in your Magpie book so that you already know what is going to happen in your writing for the day.

Prologue

Tuesday's task

Listen to the prologue carefully. How many things did he say a dragon would do that a cucumber would not?

On the padlet add three more ideas of things that a dragon would do, be as inventive as you like and a little bit silly today.

Good luck!

Grammar Challenge 2

Well done everyone for participating in the grammar challenge last week, I was very impressed with how accurate you all were with getting your speech marks in the correct places.

This week I would like to work on adding detail into our speech. We can do this by describing the people having the conversation and describing what they are doing when they talk.

I have created a class padlet which we can use like a big magpie book so I need everyone to add as many ideas as they can. It is organised into four columns to help us organise our thoughts, make sure you check before adding them.

Science

Life Cycles

Use the National geographic link below to learn about the life-cycle of a butterfly. There are fantastic images to show you exactly what they look like!

Afterwards, create a poster for the lifecycle of an animal. You can choose whatever creature you link, frogs have lots of examples out there to help you. Make sure you check with an adult before searching on the internet and ask them to help you find the information you need. You should include diagrams of your animal at different stages. 

Exploring habitats

This week you need to start thinking about different habitats. There is a link below with lots of examples of different habitats and the animals within them. Spend some time exploring the different videos and activities on the BBC Bitesize page.

Your Garden Habitat

Spend some time in your garden or in a natural area near your home on one of your daily exercises. I would like you to create a factfile about the habitat here. You could produce a leaflet, a detailed poster, a traditional factfile or a page for a science book.

You can include all the skills we have been thinking about:

  • field sketches
  • food chains
  • life-cycles
  • animal information
  • food sources

Science links

Below are a series of links to help you learn about different habitats around the world.

External Link Icon Exploring habitats BBC Bitesize
Lots of interactive activities and clips to play with to explore different habitats around the world.

National Geographic have an amazing article

RE

This week we are thinking about the world around us. We will think about Jesus' teachings of helping and loving thy neighbours. 

I would like you think of a few things that you think could be changed in the world to make a better place for people/.

There is a sheet below you could use or you can create your own way of showing your ideas.
