I just want to start the week by saying a big thank you to all of you that send in work and who keep us updated with how you are doing. Remember to try to send me at least one message a week on Mirodo. It doesn't have to link to school work- I just like to hear from you.
In school one of our core values is kindness, and this week in particular, I want you to try to be kind to yourself. Try to find some time to think positive thoughts about yourself, and celebrate the amazing person that you are.
I am really missing you all. You are all wonderful, and yet unique in your own way, and I want you to celebrate and be proud of who you are.
How much reading have you been doing? Are you struggling to find things to read? I messaged you all on Mirodo a while ago about logging onto Oxford Owl, but on our school website under the Children Section there are First Newspapers to read online which are full of interesting things to read. Last week you were set a challenge linked to reading on Purple Mash and lots of you did a great job at reading and quizzing every day -brilliant!
This week for your reading tasks, I would like you to logon to Accelerated Reader and read the online articles which you can then complete a quiz. Details of how to do this are below:
READING STAR! (Friday 15th May)
A huge well done to Kieran who spent ......108 minutes on Nessy last week-what a star!
Remember to logon to Lexia or Nessy to meet your usage like you did at school!
Big congratulations to: Estella, Daniel, Jamie and Sophie for completing quizzes this week.
Jamie read 54,299 words and Estella 54,924...WOW!!!!

Well done Lucas for moving up a level in Lexia- super star!

Super work by Nathan, based on the message from Ed Sheeran's song, What Do I Know.

Hello Year 5, I hope that you all had a lovely, bank holiday weekend.
Did you do anything fun to celebrate VE day? Some of you have kindly emailed and shared how you celebrated the occasion. Below is a picture of my son and husband holding up a flag that was waved at Trafalgar Square during the VE day celebration, back in 1945! We had lots of fun celebrating with our neighbours.
As always, refer to the timetable for suggested ideas, and the powerpoints to support you with the work. This week for reading, I have set a daily read and daily quiz on Purple Mash for you to complete. There are other tasks linked to the reading but they are completely optional- please do not feel that you need to complete them. Last week we based our work around, The Greatest Showman, which is about a circus and it made me think about cruelty to animals, and therefore the reading on Purple Mash is based around a Tiger in a zoo which some people believe is a fantastic environment for animals; others, belief it to be a dreadful place for animals to live.
This week, in English, the focus of our work is around the song, You'll Never Walk Alone. I hope you enjoy it!
Super Star-Player of the Year! Well Done!
Great Captain Tom Work

After the Easter Break, I will upload our new Spelling Overview. Until then please continue to practise regularly the spelling words set on Spelling Shed. Below is a copy of the Y3/4 and Y5/6 word Statutory Word list to practise. Please remember all of the strategies we have used when trying to learn the very tricky words.
1-write it out and identify which is the tricky part
2-how can you remember the tricky part?
(secretary- the secretary was a secret Agent- remember the a was the tricky part)
3-write the tricky part as many times as you can in 30 seconds
4- now word build around it secret- A-ry
5-practise writing the word 10 times (check that you have spelt it correctly)
6-now practise writing it in a sentence (please don't forget all of your hard work that you have put into your handwriting)
We have looked at the work of Roy Lichenstein this half-term and you all did a great job at making your names into an explosion using ben day dots. Please use the images below and instead of writing the word POP, can you think of a word that would be really relevant now based on what is happening throughout the world. For e.g HOPE or KINDNESS- wouldn't it be wonderful if we could have an explosion of kindness.
100 Books to Read
Ashley Booth, a fantastic teacher from Liverpool has put together a list of 100 books to read by the time you leave year 6. The list, which contains classics and modern texts, is filled with some fantastic reads and I will be encouraging the children to have a go at some of them.Many of the books are read in class including our current book, Goodnight Mister Tom. You can download the list below. If there is a little resistance to reading at home they are bound to find a book to love on the list.
