Working together for success and happiness





In English today, we will be continuing our new writing sequence... MARY POPPINS!

This will all lead up to writing a diary entry as though you have spent the week with Mary Poppins herself! 

Now that you have developed your vocabulary and gathered all of the words to use for the topic, we will move on to the next part of the writing sequence where we ANALYSE an example of a text. Here we will look at a model.


Have a look at the model on the link underneath. Read through this example of a dairy entry.


A diary entry is a type of recount writing. A recount retells an event or experience someone has had. This recount is from the point of view of Jane after she's spent some time with Mary Poppins.  



Look at the sheet about what you can find in a diary. See if you can spot these in our model. It also gives you some grammar features to try and find too. 

Finally, look at the model and find the key vocabulary you learnt last week e.g. spotless, mischievous, spoilt etc.


You could find all of these things in the model and label them if you are able to print or simply locate them in the model. 



Due to assessment week taking place in school, we think it is important to do some revision and consolidation of everything covered so far this term. 

For the rest of this week, we will be giving you some sheets that have a range of questions covered in these two blocks. 

Here are a few tips to help you on your way:

  • Use the methods looked at in that block
  • Draw out or use counters to help with multiplication and division
  • Use any equipment you have at home to help you e.g. coins, sweets, Lego etc.
  • Use a multiplication grid to help with any times table questions 

Remember, these sheets are to help you practice and revise what we have covered so it's all to help you on your way! 


Afternoon activities

This afternoon, we would like you to spend some time practising your spellings, reading and practising your times tables. 


You can use Spelling Shed and TTRS for this. 


Below is the homework pyramid for this topic for you to have a go at one of the activities.
