30th April Thursday

Hello! I hope you are all well. I will be in school today with the key worker children.


1) Lots of you came a got a copy of The Iron Man last week and a new Maths exercise book and a new lined writing exercise book. If you haven't done so yet, but would like these, then I will leave boxes of these out again. I think it might rain, so I will leave a note outside the main door, in the porch, to let you know where you can find them. Please also return copies of The Butterfly Lion if you do pop over. Please only take 1 of each, so there's enough to go round. Please also respect social distancing. They will be out between 9am and 3pm. 

2) As I'm in school today, I won't be able to approve your blog posts myself, but I will leave a question and I'll ask Mrs Scott to do so on my behalf during the day. 

Big Write feedback from last week  (also as an attachment below) ... apologies for the delay this week. I've been working really hard on preparing your learning for the next two weeks, but I have been truly amazed by the standard of the work coming in. You really are doing yourselves proud. Thank you also for all the challenge photos coming in. Some great messages and it's lovely to see your faces. If you haven't done yours yet, there's still time.

Thursday Arithmetic:

I've attached some arithmetic (answers for your parents too). If you are not printing the questions out, write them out to answer them. 


As yesterday, please continue to play the 5 fraction activities as 2Do's on Purplemash, as revision.

Imagine that you are Hogarth. The Iron Man has just been trapped and you are in your bedroom writing in your diary. You need to write in the past tense.
