In English this week you will be exploring the wonder world of Roald Dahl, specifically, the terrifically hilarious world of 'The Twits'. One of my favourite books (And I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being one of your favourites as well)
Monday - WALT: To listen to and discuss the story of The Twits.
Tuesday - WALT: To write a book review about The Twits
Wednesday - WALT: To answer questions about a text.
Thursday - WALT: To write a character description. (about one of the Twits)
Friday - WALT: To plan my own prank/trick. (This will probably be the ONLY time that I will ever allow you to be horrible to another person, even if they are fictional, so enjoy it, savour it, take your time with it and be as creative and conniving as you can. This is your one shot to be mean to another person and the funnier, the better!)
In Maths this week we will be continuing with fractions work, identifying quarters, thirds and identifying fractions of a shapes and groups.
For phonics please continue to use 'Fast Phonics' on reading eggs on a daily basis, in addition to this, here are some very useful websites.

Below are some phonics based activities, use your phonics knowledge, along with the specific sound used in each activity to complete the challenge.
This week in SPaG we are going to work on exclamations! Now we have covered these in class before. Remember an exclamation is usually when something exciting happens or if someone is speaking in a certain way.
This week you will be creating a sketch, a sketch is a detailed drawing of a person or object that is created using only a pencil (no colouring pencils or pens) to create lots of tiny lines to form a longer line that forms a picture. This is not the same as drawing, drawing is long constant lines that are often hard to control. Linked to your topic lesson from last week, choose your favourite toy and draw a detailed sketch of it. If you don't have a favourite toy you can do one of a person. Here is an example that I've done for you.
This week you are going to be identifying properties of materials. Some materials are hard, some are soft, some are durable (they can withstand pressure) some are fragile (break easily). Look up difference adjectives to describe the properties of materials and complete the activity below.
Building on the theme of new beginnings, read through the PowerPoint and match the symbols for the Jewish New Year to their meanings.
For computing this term, we would like you to log into Discovery Espresso using the link below and click on CODING - Block Coding - Start from Level 2 - Refresher (Level 1) and work your way through the program each week. It will given you a guide and examples of what to do for each activity/session. When completing the coding activities, if you could send me some photos of you doing the activity that would be amazing!
We all make decisions everyday, sometimes we make decisions on how safe or unsafe something is. With an adult read through the story blow and after each section, decide what you would say if you were Harold, yes, no, I'll ask or I'll tell. Then think of 4 scenarios, one where you would say yes to something because it was safe, one where you would say no because it was unsafe, one where you would ask someone because you weren't sure and one where you would say you'd tell someone because it was really unsafe.
We will be learning the song Can't Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake. Listen to this and see if you can sing along. Clap in time to the beat. How many beats are in each regular section of words? Can you keep up with the faster sections?
Joe Wicks to the rescue! PE with Joe is back now that schools are once again closed to most pupils. In school we will be participating in some of these workouts and we encourage the children at home to do the same.
