I really hope you all are well? I miss you all and can't believe we are not at school together.
To try and help you through these strange times, we will be adding some weekly work to keep your minds and bodies active. There is a suggested timetable and activities to complete. Please feel free to do as much or as little as you feel you can.
I would LOVE to see your completed work. Please feel free to tweet your work to @firsprimarysale or email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you could show it to me when we get back to school.
Stay safe and I can't wait to catch up with you all when all this is over.
Go-To Art Activities
Here are a range of fun Art activities that you can try out at home!
In English we will be writing a newspaper report, an explanation on mummification, traditional tales, poetry and lots more topic-based work.
Pupils will be taught to:
Plan their writing by:
- discussing writing similar to that which they are planning to write in order to understand and learn from its structure, vocabulary and grammar
- discussing and recording idea
Draft and write by
- composing and rehearsing sentences orally (including dialogue), progressively building a varied and rich vocabulary and an increasing range of sentence structure
- organising paragraphs around a theme
- in narratives, creating settings, characters and plot
- in non-narrative material, using simple organisational devices [for example, headings and sub-headings]
Evaluate and edit by:
- assessing the effectiveness of their own and others’ writing and suggesting improvement
- proposing changes to grammar and vocabulary to improve consistency, including the accurate use of pronouns in sentences
- proofread for spelling and punctuation errors
- read their own writing aloud to a group or the whole class, using appropriate intonation and controlling the tone and volume so that the meaning is clear
Grammar will also be an important focus this year. Children will be learning how to use conjunctions such as, when, if, because, although. They will also be learning about pronouns, commas, apostrophes, and, speech marks.
Handwriting expectations remain high, for further information please see our Penpals support for handwriting, on this page.
Children are expected to listen to and discuss a range of texts including, fiction, poetry, plays, non-fiction and reference books or textbooks. They will be using dictionaries to check the meaning of words. Additionally, children will be preparing poems and play scripts to read aloud and to perform, showing understanding through intonation, tone, volume and action. We will be discussing words and phrases that capture the reader’s interest and imagination.
We expect children to read daily and record which pages and books in their reading logs.
We understand that going into the juniors can be big transition for children, our aim is to ‘Inspire, Believe, Achieve!’ we wish for all children to feel happy and safe in school, please, if there is anything that you need to know or you have any worries or concerns about your child, or school life in general then please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your continued support.
