Week 11 - English
Creative Writing - Our writing continues with a focus on extracts from Anthony Horowitz.
Reading - We are continuing with the second part of The Cave.
Grammar - Paragraphs in non-fiction
Spellings - Yr5/6 spellings are below. You should practise spellings by writing them out and then using them in creative sentences. Use the following website to help with the learning and pronunciation of words: www.spellzone.com
Handwriting - Continue with the fluency and speed handwriting pack (on Week 9 home learning page). Please refer carefully to the handwriting style used and look at the Benwick cursive alphabet model (also on Week 9 home learning page). I have attached a file with handwriting paper which can be printed off at home. Alternatively, we can provide you with handwriting books/paper packs. These can be collected from the school office.
Miss Wakefield - English Lead
Topic - Week 11
This weeks' topic focus is Geography. Children will be reading information and completing activities linked to the UK's trade. They will learn the terms - trade, import and export - before looking at fair trade and considering what trade may look like in the future. 


This weeks' PE is a set of activities linked to athletics jumps. 

Continue the activities set on YUMU by Mrs Clutton.
This weeks' PSHE looks at positive and negative thoughts. It suggests strategies children can use for when they experience negative thoughts. 
PSHE - Wellbeing
Keeping active is  one of the 5 ways to wellbeing. The more active your are, outside if possible, the better you will feel.
Keep a simple daily dairy, in your exercise book, tracking your exercise and how you felt before and afterwards. e.g.
Monday - 10 minutes on the trampoline - before: I felt tired and grumpy  after: I felt excited and I was laughing (and hot)
Can you find at least 5 different types of activity you can do over the week?
