Week beginning 27th April

Welcome to this weeks lessons!  I hope you are all well.  Now we should be in the Summer term, I think we’ve been home longer than I expected when I saw you last, so perhaps it’s time to really get into a school routine again? Obviously this is flexible to suit your day too but it would be great if you could develop your routine to include 3 lessons a day: English, Maths and Foundation subjects (approximately 45 minutes each).

 

Many lessons will come from the governments Oak National Academy but we will also be including resources that we would normally use in school too.

Each week you will see this timetable, with a link each day for the task you can complete.  It should take 45 minutes per lesson - please let me know if the work requires too much or not enough time! 

If you are struggling to access any of the resources, they can also be found at the bottom of the page.

If you are unable to scroll across to view the whole timetable, please find it attached here:

Task:

Today you will use direct speech.  As a reporter you will interview an amazed spectator.  What would they say?  For example.

The crowd roared after yet another perfect splash landing.  One star struck lion could be heard screaming "This is roar-some!"

Friday

Task:

Your last paragraph will be focused on the future.  What will happen next?

Was this just the quarter final?  Will the giraffes have to compete with other animals?  Or perhaps this is the finals and the giraffes will complete a world tour in a stadium near you?

 

Once you have completed your report, you will of course need a headline!  What clever or funny one can you think of?

 

If you would like an art project - could you draw a picture to go with your report?  I always look at pictures in newspapers!
