Hi Maple Class,
Welcome to week 5 of the summer term. Jasmine found this amazing and beautifully written song, which really sums up how important you are to us as teachers and as a school. It's called 'The colour of the classroom'. Have a listen. https://youtu.be/JagBJ8jxYmE
Wednesday the 20th of May is world 'bee' day so to celebrate this day, your English and art tasks are all about bees and their importance to the world. I hope you will learn lots.
Thank you so much for continuing with your great home learning. Yet again, you have been producing lots of wonderful work from amazing parrots, to fantastic predator stories, super maths work and great science learning about shadows. Well done to everyone who had a go at the bubble experiment too - there is something magical about bubbles. A massive thank you for keeping in touch and emailing through photos of your child's work. Keep sending them. I really enjoy seeing your fabulous work.
For the maths work this week, you will need to print the worksheets off of the web site as White Rose are no longer publishing them on their website. The children can still watch the lesson video clip via the White Rose site as normal.
I have also put some maths problems on the website which will support this maths work further, so please use these resources in addition to the online maths lesson if you need more activities.
There is a science quiz and science investigation for you to complete too. We have some great scientists in the class.
I have added a sewing task for anyone who feels like a bit of sewing!
Remember that you can read books online using Oxford Owl. Keep reading every day.
Neil will be taking the ICT zoom lesson as usual on Wednesday at 2pm. I look forwards to seeing you all then. The extra quiz Neil ran on Thursday at 4:30pm was really good, so please join for this. You can do the quiz with your child. It was brilliant to see so many of you from Maple class at the quiz.
Please do not worry if your child doesn't complete all of the activities. It is important to get the right balance for you and your child while also having time to play, exercise and relax.
Take care and stay safe and well.
Week 5 18.5.20
The crescent moon slowly crept higher into the night sky. The breeze shot through the city air. The streetlights poured just enough light out for the killer to see everything from their vantage point at the edge of the wooden copse. The predator puffed his chest out and readied himself for some unsuspecting victim.
“Soon someone will wish they had never left their home,” they thought to themselves, gleefully squawking. His heart began to beat faster and faster as every second went by.
He had been waiting for over 6 hours, everything was aching. Suddenly, noises came from all around him. He sat motionless ready to attack.
NO! the sound began to fade away and then it was gone. The predator took a deep breath and hoped what ever made the noise came back so he could strike.
“Come on!” the predator thought impatiently.
He was becoming more agitated and furious. He was determined that the night wasn’t going to be wasted.
Suddenly, the rustling came back but this time it did not stop. The predator caught sight of the oblivious victim as they ran across the road from one grass verge to another. A car passed and momentarily blinded the poor creature, the predator swooped his wings making no sound. He attacked his victim- it was quick.
A dead rabbit lay still. Blood pouring from his wounds. The predator flew off his stomach satisfied. He had completed his mission.
