Wow! I've got to say, I was completely blown away by all your work efforts last week- I received some amazing work and can see that you're all trying so hard! A BIG well done from me! Remember, to just try your hardest and do what you can with the learning activities. We need to get this weeks gallery full of work to celebrate, so please do email me your work to email@example.com
If you still need your Big Maths Log on, please do not hesitate to email me and I can get this to you. I would like this to be done each week if possible.
With regards to the Sedgley Park and Hazlehurst poem submissions, if you are thinking of doing and illustration, could you please email me with the line you are thinking of doing so we have no overlaps. :) I will keep updating the submissions to the home page, so everybody can see how far we have got with it!
I really do enjoy hearing from you all, so even if you want to email and just say hello, that is fine :)
Take care and hopefully see you all soon!
Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
Task: Please practice your weekly spellings. I have included a powerpoint and I would really like to hear how you get on with these. This weeks spelling pattern is: Words with a short /u/ sound spelt with 'ou'. An example of this would be country or courage.

Task: Please complete instructional writing task. Complete one of your choice- you may even choose to write about something you have baked for example. E.G. Lydia you may want to write instructions for how you baked your waffles :)
This week we will be writing a set of instructions for a topic of your choice. This task focuses on spotting the good features within instructional writing and then having a go at writing your own. I have included a WAGOLL (What a good one looks like) and also success criteria for you to look at and inlude. -ENJOY

Learning Challenge Question 2: Why is it so important to look after bees in our country?
How do we all feel when we look at bees? Watch the clip https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/44222859
Consider, what would happen if all the bees in our country died?
We need bees for pollination!
Go through the bees powerpoint and look at the different types of bees. Halfway through the powerpoint, watch the video http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/collections/p007rdq3
Task: Can you create a video/ diagram to show how pollination occurs?
Go through the rest of the powerpoint and REMEMBER, pollination is extremely important for the production of fruit and we need to ensure bees do not die out.
Task 2: Write down your definition of pollination in your own words. When this is finished, I would like you to create an information poster that explains why it is important to look after bees in our country. What can we do to ensure this happens?
Feeling creative? Can you build a Bee Hotel out of household items? I would love to see if you can encourage any bees into your garden by providing them with a comfy home, nutritious food, and a refreshing water supply! Click on the link below for more instructions.
