Creating an information page.  

How will you do this? Look at your page from yesterday. How could you improve it? Use and think about how the pages were set out on Health and Beauty and Farming. Remember the key features:  

  • A title - could it be a question?  

  • Subheadings, which will explain what the paragraph or paragraphs will be about.  

  • Technical/ historical vocabulary. 

  • Relative clauses 

  • Subordination clauses. 

  • Fronted adverbials 

  • Pictures with captions. 

  • Check your punctuation. 

Choose another topics you have made notes on to create an information page for a book!  

Upload your work onto Tapestry. 


12:25 - 12:30   Class/Own Book.  

Like we would in class with our class book, spend some time quiet reading or listening to the class book, The Time Travelling Cat. The teachers have uploaded videos of themselves reading different chapters on Tapestry, so be sure to check :-).  


12:30 - 1:30   LUNCH! 


1:30 - 2:00   Reading for Pleasure! 

Check out Tapestry for a range of different books being read by some of the teachers. They are reading you a snippet of their favourite children's books. Settle down and listen in... Maybe you'll hear something you want to read further!  

We know you love Harry Potter, so watch this interview between JK Rowling and Konnie Huq about when she first wrote Harry Potter. 

Curl up with your own book and read for 15mins.  


2 - 2:45pm PE Focus: 

Head to Tapestry to find today’s challenges! 


2. 45 - 3.20pm- French

Vrai ou faux?  

Use your musical genre knowledge from last week to unpick the sentences! Look at the sheet attached. 


Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q:  Who is the most villainous villain you can think of (Cruella De'Vil, Voldermort, Snow Queen) and how would you defeat them?  

Miss Martin:

Miss Chapman: 

Mrs Hudson: Oh! I think Cruella De'Vil is a horror! I mean she even has a surname which if you got rid of the apostrophe means devil!!! You can't get much worse than that. By the way 101 Dalmations is a great book, even if you have seen the film it is worth a read.


Today's Q:  Which is the most interesting non-fiction book you have read and why?  


Have a great evening and join us tomorrow for some more exciting learning :)
