Working together for success and happiness

Monday 8th Feb


This week we will be focusing on chapter 9. 

Today we'd simply like you to read chapter 9 of Charlotte's Web. As you read, keep thinking about the events that have happened already. Keep making predictions as you read and visualize the events in your head as they happen. You may find it helpful to make some summary notes as you go today, to keep track of the events that happen in each chapter. 

Enjoy reading! 


This week we are moving on to the next step in our writing sequence. This is the part where we write our own diary entry as though we have spent a week with MARY POPPINS! 

To do this, you need to use all of the vocabulary, grammar skills and fabulous ideas you’ve developed over the last two weeks to help you!

We will add a paragraph each day, building up to our amazing piece of writing by Friday!


Begin by watching the two videos below as these will help give you more information on what to include and what grammar features and vocabulary we are aiming to include too. Remember, you are pretending to be Michael or Jane and are writing from your point of view as one of the children. 


Today we will be writing the first paragraph. This is where Mary and the children first meet. You could talk about:

  • First impressions of Mary
  • Mary's first impressions of you and your brother/sister
  • Mary's magical bag and what she pulls out of it
  • What Mary's tape measure says about you and your brother/sister

You may find watching the Mary Poppins videos again useful too. 


Use the help sheet to help you include all of the grammar features and vocabulary in your piece of writing. Use the WAGOLL to help you too. 


It's a good idea to write a rough/draft version of your paragraph and then edit it to improve the spelling, vocabulary choices and punctuation. You could then do an improved 'showpiece' version.

If you are able to print and want to use the bordered paper, you can!

For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Fractions'. 

This morning we would like you to look at: Counting in tenths 

Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks. 

There are slides too (same as the video) if you need to look at this more slowly and carefully. 


Then, complete the worksheet. Look at the questions on a screen and write your answers on paper. Remember, the later questions are normally problem solving and reasoning questions so give these your best shot. You may need a little bit of adult explanation for these.

Art- Strikes and Flying Pickets 

Not only does our Strikes and Flying Pickets topic cover History and Geography but Art as well!

In Art today, we are going to be continuing our new topic where we look at the work of local, Sheffield artist Pete McKee.


Today's focus will be on using 'one-point perspective' where we are able to create a street scene that looks 3-dimensional and as though the buildings are disappearing the further away they get... just like in real life! 


The slides explain today's tasks and give more detail on what 'one-point perspective' is. The slides also give you some examples and things to think about. Follow the slides carefully. There is also a video to watch today that gives you a task to try. The slides will guide you when to do this too. 


Your main task today is trying to draw a street scene, just like Pete McKee does, using one-point perspective. 

You may find the examples on the slides and Ms McKeller's amazing examples helpful too!
