This week you will be focusing on the non-fiction genre, non-chronological report. Do you remember writing a non-chronological report about Northampton, New York and a place of your choosing? It would be great if you could use all your knowledge for your writing this week. This non-chronological report is about a mythical creature, a griffin, we can’t wait to see what you write about. We would love to see a photograph of your writing!
Have you signed up for the summer reading challenge?
All of Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo is available to listen to and new chapters will be added of The Skylarks’ War by Hilary McKay on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChGz5BQnDPqxwfNpdSWIf6A
Task 1 – Science
In this lesson, you will learn how rocks change. Looking at rocks as big as mountains and as small as a grain of sand and learn the processes that form each. Learning about erosion, weathering and the movements of tectonic plates.
Task 2 – History
In this lesson, you will be learning about King John and King Richard I. You will be learning about the House of Anjou and the rivalries that developed between Henry II’s sons, who all wanted to be king. Also about about the successes and failures of both Richard I and his younger brother John. Who do you think the worse king was?
Task 3 – PSHE
In today’s lesson, you continue to lead the country as the Deputy Prime Minister since the Prime Minister has contracted COVID-19 and is unavailable to carry out his duties for 7 weeks. The lesson challenges pupil leaders to be able to respond to tough questions from the media as part of Prime Minister’s Questions around the impact of COVID-19. Dr Ted is allowing the Prime Minister to guide you but he is not allowed to face the media himself. Do not worry, the Prime Minister has been told what sorts of questions will be asked. For example, Lilley Lionheart, from Safari National News, is keen to understand how children can stay active during lockdown. Are you ready to do him and the government proud?
Task 4 – Spanish
Learn to say the date in Spanish – you can also re-watch the previous lessons to practise what you have learnt. Or continue using the duolingo app or website. How many streaks are you on now?
