Main lesson English - remarkable writer

The whole school will be working on this and if you feel particularly proud of your letter please post a picture of it on our social media sites on Friday. This activity ties in well with this week's Picture News assembly which you can find on the website under 'School Closure - assemblies'.
Monday: Decide who you are going to write to and plan your letter. You can use this planning format to help you.
Tuesday: Write your letter in draft.
-Capital letters and full stops
-Questions with question marks
-Correct present and past tense

Wednesday: Edit your letter using a different coloured pen.
-Capital letters and full stops
-Questions with question marks

Thursday: Write your letter in best, using your very neatest handwriting. Remember the person who receives your letter needs to be able to read it easily.
Friday: Put your letter in an envelope and send it. If you are sending the letter in the post, you will need to write address on the front of the envelope very carefully.

Hooray, it's the end of the week and also the end of the Spring Term, and it has been a strange way to end the term. I hope that you are all well and relaxing. Thank you for the letters that you have been writing for the remarkable writing task; some of you have been using pens and it is great to see how your handwriting is improving. Keep practising!


As above for Friday.

As you know Friday is our PE day so here are some challenges you could try at home; if you can think of more, try them out. You could even challenge a member of your household  and see if you can beat each others scores!

Time each one for a minute and see how many you can do :

star jumps, hops, with a tennis ball keeping the ball in the air, with a football keep the ball in the air, have a rally with someone using the tennis ball and your hands as the rackets, how many burpees can you do, how many times round your garden.  Most of all have fun!

 I would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter, stay safe and well. See you soon I hope, Mrs Patel.
