Good morning Mars Class!

Here are your lessons for today:

Discuss: What would you do if you could fly? Where would you go? What would you see?
Would you visit a special place?

English. Write you own poem about flight. You may wish to use the title If I Could Fly, or If I Had Wings, or create your own title. Try to use some of the interesting vocabulary you’ve
collected from the poems you’ve read. You could also use a thesaurus to find synonyms for your words. Or use the online thesaurus at: https://www.wordhipp o.com/
Don’t worry about making your poem rhyme – it doesn’t need to! Your poem can just be a series of sentences about what you would do if you could fly. Write your poem out neatly, illustrate it and share it with your family.

Spelling. Learn how to spell words with the /I/ sound. See PowerPoint below. Practise your spellings for this week and then ask a grown up to test you. Try and get your top score!

Science. Mini-beast hunting and classification. (This project will run all week.) Choose one of the mini-beasts you have seen. Observe your chosen mini-beast closely, use a magnifying glass if you have one. Make a careful drawing of your mini-beast and label it's body parts. See examples below.
