Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We will have a chat about our finished persuasive texts, as well as checking our understanding of the maths work for today. 


We will use the same password and meeting ID as usual.




Today we are going to be reading chapter 10. A few less questions today, as it is a Friday. 


Have a go at answering the questions below.


  1. Why was the soldier so pleased to see them?
  2. Why did the soldiers give them an iron cross?

  4. What two things does Emily pray for each night? And why is Emily’s Grandfather worried about her?
  5. What does he ask the horses to do?

This weeks' pattern ends on Monday so make sure you are practicing. It is a lot harder to learn a word if you don't know what it means so today's task is to define, through words or pictures, the words on this week's list. They have done a couple for you below, can you fill in the rest. 


(20 minutes)



We are looking to recap what we have covered this week before starting a brand new topic next week. 


So with this in mind today we are using mymaths so your scores will be sent straight to us so we can see how you have got on. There are two lots of homework set, one on converting fractions to decimals and dividing decimal by whole numbers. 


Any problems log in to the daily zoom or send us an email.

Today we are going to be producing a best copy of our persuasive writing, complete with all of the changes and improvements we made yesterday. Usually in class we try to ensure we get a mix of skills across a unit - usually we handwrite pieces but we often give you the opportunity to type up a final piece too.

It is really important whilst you are at home that you don't rely too heavily on either typing or handwriting.

Today, we would like you to produce a best copy of your work, ready to send off to its recipient. If you have mainly been typing your work so far, we would like you to handwrite a best copy. If most of your English has been done by hand, we would like you to type up your best copy. 

Remember to pay special attention to the layout today, keeping it as neat and formal as you can. 

Once you have completed this, could you email in your finished letter, either as a document or a photo. We can't wait to see your work, it has sounded brilliant on Zoom this week!

Today we looking at landscapes - we did a bit of work with these last term, we looked at Constable and Monet, imitating their styles. 


Today we are going to have a bit of a free choice. Mrs Thompson-Engels has set us a challenge and she is going to frame and display some entries from our class. 


The rules to keep to: the picture has to be landscape and the title is Nature, bright and bold. 


Your picture can be about anything, if it fits into the title, it can be done in any medium (pencil, paint, coloured, black and white, charcoal - whatever you have got available to you at home). They could be 3D, made out of nature itself or a picture of your favourite place, whatever the title words conjure up in your mind. You could even go outside (if the sun is shining) and see what landscapes you can find. 


Send them in when they are done so we can let Mrs Thompson-Engels see them.

If you have worked quickly today and you have zipped through our work and it is all of a good quality, then you can have a look at the In case you finish... section. This is full of ideas that you can do if your grown ups are busy still working or with them when they have finished.
