Action: In class, we have been summarising what we have read. This week, I would like you write a written summary for a chapter of your book. Remember this is only a summary so you don’t need to put in unnecessary details , but make sure you don’t leave any main points out.

As we have just celebrated World Book Day, I thought this was a great opportunity to share one of my new favourite books with you 'The Outsiders' by Michelle Paver originally recommended to me by Miss Todd. It is brilliantly written and if you love all things ancient Greek,  this one is for you. Why not also read some more books by the author of Secrets of a Sun King (another of our favourite novels from this year) by Emma Carroll. She is well known for writing historical fiction. Please let me know if you have any other recommendations.

Remote Learning for day 1 of Self-Isolation

Reading Comprehension for Children Self isolating (please complete 3 star sheet)

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find an information video which I have put together on how you can support your child with learning to spell. These strategies can be used during as well as post Lockdown to inspire your child to learn their spellings and retain them.


I have also added a crib sheet of the strategies presented in the video as well as some additional strategies which aren't mentioned in the video.


Next week, the video will be moved to the Video Centre.


I hope you find it useful.

Spelling Strategies Crib Sheets

Check out one of our silly paragraphs where we tried to get all of our -ibly -ably spellings into one paragraph :) 


reliably want to tell you, that regrettably your tree was cut down today. Sensibly, the men wore the right equipment, and agreeably cut down the tree down but, incredibly they might have cut down the wrong tree! Possibly, due to your bad instructions. 


How about this one where children were asked to write a paragraph with as many of our homophones in as possible :) 

After the father of the bride had given his assent for his daughter to be married, the wedding party traveled to the Isle of Wight. Many weeks had passed while waiting for the ultimate marriage of the year. They had been waiting for a long time because the bride had to alter her dress and the groom had to find someone to borrow steal a suit from. On the big day the bridal party watched proudly as the bride’s father led the bride past the congregation, down the aisle and towards the altar. The congregation all sang aloud and they could be heard for miles. At the countryside reception, the wine was flowing freely and it had a huge effect on the crowd; they made their ascent to the upper pasture even though the sign said they weren’t allowed. Unfortunately, a herd of cattle and a stray horse followed them. Pandemonium ensued! Luckily the farmer came along and had to take the horse away by its bridle, its steel shoes clip-clopping all the way through the heavy lead gate. The next day revealed that gallivanting in fields would greatly affect the wedding guests’ ability to wake up in time to catch the ferry home.
