Building a Brighter Future

Week Two (8th June)

Hello everyone,

 

We’ve had a really lovely week chatting with most of you on the phone. If you haven't had a call from us yet (only a small number of you), it's because we have tried all the numbers the office has for you, and can't get hold of you.  Please ask your parent to share a new number with the school office to pass on to us.  We're missing you all so much.

 

This week's work is below, keep up all your hard work -  we think you're all truly amazing.

 

See you all soon - on the blog we hope, and hope to speak soon too!

Read a book!  A new one, a borrowed one, an old favourite, just read!  Then discuss the book together (see some good questions below).  If you're not sure what a word means, please use a dictionary to find out.

 

If you've read a really good book since school has closed, why not write a book review on our school blog?   Your parents were texted your login.

Weekly Focus: Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Read this story.

Talk about this story with your family.  Act out the story.  You could make the characters from the story and use those to re-tell the story.

Try writing down your own version of the story during this week!

 

Extra challenge:  Can you write a different version of the story?  Maybe you could change the characters, or the setting or the ending?  Feeling creative?  Why not make your own masks or puppets of the characters?
