Hello, Mercury Class!
It’s the end of the half-term! Thank you for your hard work. Make sure you ask for your Friday wages!
Please see, below, our remote learning tasks for today.
Enjoy today’s Poetry Time at: https://salesbury.primarysite.media/playlist/mercury-class and on facebook at 9am.
Year 4 (optional for Year 3):
- Orally retell the story so far.
- Plan and write your own chapter of what you think will happen next.
- What will happen to Lucy? Where will she end up? Will anybody (humans) see her? What will Agatha and the family do when they wake up? Will they go after her? Are they all in danger?
- Plan your chapter using a method that you have used at school before, e.g. a story mountain, a storyboard etc.
- When you write your chapter, think about all the writing techniques that you have been taught and see how many you can use in your chapter. Can you include any of the new words that you have explored this week?
- Read back your chapter out loud and check your spelling and punctuation.
Table 2 (optional for Year 3):
Read together the opening extract from Horrid Henry Peeks at Peter’s Diary from Horrid Henry and the Football Fiend:
- Discuss why people choose to write a diary – i) to retell key events that have happened to them that day and ii) to make comments on these events or talk about their thoughts and feelings.
- Re-read Perfect Peter’s diary entries on pp10-11 of the extract.
- Ask whether these are good diary entries or not. How could they be improved?
- Imagine you are Perfect Peter. Your challenge is to rewrite the diary entry for one of the days. You could imagine that you are writing the entry after one of Henry’s troublesome antics that you’ve read about this week.
- Remember to i) retell the key events from the day and ii) make some comments, or write about your thoughts or feelings in response to what happened.
- Check all sentences for spelling and punctuation together.
We are working on time on MyMaths. Remember to work carefully through the slides on each lesson and have a go at the practice questions.
I have set tasks for you to complete throughout the week. Don’t worry if you don’t get through them all. Please let me know of any problems and we’ll try and sort them! Please don’t worry and just do your best. Please see Monday’s plans for logging in details.
