Think, believe, dream, dare…

Week 11 22.06 - 26.06

English

This week Team, we are going to look at writing a biography. A few weeks a go we wrote autobiographies, a non-fiction piece of writing about us. A biography is a non-fiction piece of writing about someone else. It is Armed Forces Week, so I want you to write about someone in your family who serves in the Forces or someone who is just AWESOME to you!

 

On Monday you are going to read a text all about Armed Forces Day and answer questions.

On Tuesday, you are going to review what you know about questions and then interview your chosen person.

On Wednesday, I want you to plan your biography. Remember this just has to be notes.

On Thursday, I want you to write your first sections of you biography.

On Friday, I want you to complete your biography and then share it with your chosen adult.

 

Go into each folder below to find out more about your daily learning!

Spelling

We are on WEEK 1 of our work. Your child is learning how letters can make different sounds.  These words have the letters ‘or’, ‘ir’ or ‘ear’ which can make a sound like ‘ur’ (as in ‘burn’).  

 

You can find this weeks spelling sheet as an image below, but also as a word document you can download and print out. If you can't print, just write the words out in your spelling books. 

 

Week 1
• Monday – Thursday: Week 1 spelling work consists of children practising these words (using a writing pencil), using the look cover write check method. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising. Reflect on any words you found tricky – make these words/rules your focus for next week.


Week 2
• Monday – Thursday: Week 2 spelling work consists of children including each word in a sentence then writing the sentences in their spelling book. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising.

Topic

As you know Team, it is Armed Forces Week. So all our learning in Topic this week is going to be based on this celebration. As always I would like you to open and then work through the presentation below. This week's main challenge is to create a portrait of your grown up who serves in the forces. If no one in your family is in the army, draw a picture of the AWESOME adults who look after you. Then send me in a photograph of you holding up your portrait. There are then three more BONUS challenges, if you would like to go 'over and above'.

 

 

Physical

Joe Wicks' workouts are an EPIC way to get your brains ready to learn. He is now doing these three times a week, but you always create your own workout and send me a video of you being your very own Joe Wicks. This week for yoga, lets go on a Twits yoga adventure.
