Good morning Willow Class! We have had some superstar writers this week and I have absolutely LOVED reading your stories so far! Keep up the amazing work. 

English – LO: To develop a novel based on ‘Wonder’ which uses relative clauses.

Watch the video below for today’s English lesson.

Parents and Carers, please be aware, the videos are posted to YouTube, and linked to the website for the children to use.  Due to the restrictions on the YouTube page, we cannot control the adverts which appear at the end of the videos. Please supervise your child, as you see necessary, when watching the clips.  Many Thanks.

Today, you are going to write your own version of the third chapter. Use the model in the video and make sure you use lots of detail. This is the problem section so make sure it sounds dramatic!

Maths – LO: To subtract fractions with different denominators.

Watch the video below for today’s Maths lesson and don’t forget to join in with the starter and activities.

History – LO: To identify working conditions during the Victorian times.

Watch the following video.

I want you to think about the workhouses in the Victorian times and create a fact file on the workshouses. Your fact file needs to be full of facts, images and information about work during the Victorian times.

PSHE – LO: To identify the importance of feeling safe.

Think about the following questions. You can make notes if you want to.

  • What makes you feel safe at home?
  • What makes you feel safe in the community?
  • What makes you feel safe in this country?

One of the things that can help us to feel safe and secure is our family. Some people, however, do not have a family. Here is a video about a refugee (someone who has been forced to leave their country due to war or natural disasters) who misses their family. Young refugees who arrive in this country are not allowed to bring their family.

  • How do they feel?
  • What do they say is difficult for them being away from their family?
  • What helped them to feel better?

Think about lockdown. Have you had any of these emotions that the refugee may have felt? Today, you are going to write a letter to a refugee your age who is in the UK without their family, imagine how they might feel. What supportive words and helpful advice would you give? Think about how you deal with things when you are sad or lonely.
