Hi Dove Class

Well your time doing remote learning is done and tomorrow we will head back to school. I am looking forward to seeing you all and finding out about all the things you have been busy learning about, especially in terms of WWII.

I am so proud of the excellent attitudes so many of you have demonstrated while we have been away from school. I only have a tiny bit of reminding to do. 

I hope you are all feeling ok about tomorrow? 
We will have time to talk and catch up in the morning. I know you love a time to ask questions so that is how we will start our day. 

After that, we are going to spend the first part of the morning going over maths and checking we feel confident on what you have been doing at home. After break, we will be planning and writing a diary entry for Bill. Then the afternoon will be time to get you moving with some games outside (hopefully) and sharing our learning linked with WWII.

Please remember to bring your home learning books and reading diaries back into school. 

I can't wait to share some of the amazing pieces you have submitted!! 

Well done again!

See you in the morning. Remember we need to arrive around 9am. 

P.S. It's Wednesday so I am going to remind you all to get extra sleep especially as there is no time for an extra snooze in the morning.

Over the last week, you have found facts about what life was like for children, women, and soldiers during WWII. I would like you to use your learning to write a letter to send back home to a loved one. You could be a child writing to your parents while you are evacuated to Wales. You could be a woman writing back to her husband who is a soldier on the front line, telling how different life is at home. You could be a soldier writing home to his family about life on the front line. You could be a pilot or a soldier on foot. The letter you decide to write about is your own choice. However, please make sure you include a greeting to the person you are writing to, facts about your experiences and your own thoughts and feelings in your role as a child/a woman or a soldier, and questions to them so that you would receive a reply. I can't wait to read your letters. Think creatively about how you could present your letter, remember you wrote it in the 1940s. What equipment would they have used? What would it look like now? Maybe we could put some on display when we return to school as they will be a great example of your learning while you have been at home.

Today's reading work is based around looking at synonyms to help understand words in context and to use synonyms to be able to answer questions. Have a pen and paper ready Work through the slides, answering the quiz questions as you go. The answers are at the end for you to check how you did. Good luck!

Today's Maths is to take a look at the column method and then tackle some questions correctly using the method.

Remember to estimate first - like we looked at yesterday - because this really helps to check if you have got your answer correct once you have calculated it accurately.

Today you will be using your diary plan from yesterday as I would like you to rehearse what you will be writing tomorrow. Before you get started can you watch this video to understand the difference between formal and informal English. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdKYl8Tg_FQ In a diary, we would use an informal, friendly tone as it is your own personal writing. You can use abbreviated words, common words that 15-year-olds would use, and short sentences. Today, I would like you to rehearse your diary. So everything that Bill would write in his diary, I want you to practice saying. Rehearse it a few times and then record it and share it. Enjoy!

Morning task - Wednesday 14th October

In today's Maths lesson, we will be using rounding to help us solve calculations where we need an approximate answer. We get an approximate answer when we round the original numbers before reaching an answer. We can use this when calculating approximate answers and as a way of checking our actual calculations when we have worked things out accurately.

Today we will find out what it was like to be a soldier in WWII. 1. Read through the information and reflect on the questions. 2. Use different sources to find out about what life would have been like for soldiers during WWII. Here is an example: http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/war/soldiers.html There are links to videos on the slides also. 3. Present your research in your chosen creative way. Could you make a PowerPoint? (save it as a PDF and you can upload it to SeeSaw or email it to doves@sandringham.school) What about an information leaflet or your own documentary? Remember to get your creative thinking caps on. Happy research!
