Hi Everyone, from Ms Lovelace

June3

I’ve been reading your ‘My Hero’ written pieces and they are all amazing.

Congratulations on working so hard on them.

I have given you each a small list of words to learn from your writing.

The words are written on a sticky note.

  • Place the sticky note somewhere where  you can view it easily.
  • Glimpse at it a few times and then try to remember the spelling of the words on the sheet. Test yourself.
  • When you are ready, give your sticky note to someone who can test you.
  • If you get it correct then you have achieved a personal goal. Well done.

For those of you who ‘stayed safe’ with your spelling on the My Hero piece, I have put a chart on the blog for you to choose 4 words to test yourself. Remember….

If you challenge yourself, you will be proud of your results.

Thank You

May12

Thanks everyone for my wonderful cards. I was ‘tickled pink’ to receive them when Mrs Love visited me on Friday. I have put them up in my dining room to remind me of you all.

I am working hard at getting better, and miss you all a lot. I am hoping that the doctor gives me the ‘all clear’ soon, even if I have to come back with a walking stick.

I heard all about camp from Mrs Coulson, and she also said that you  were all amazing campers.

I look forward to seeing you all soon

From Miss L

See if you can measure the angles with the protractors in the icecream container near the telephone. Practise using the protractor to check each other’s angles. Walk around the room and measure others’ angles. Use small sticky notes to record your answer to the angles and place them near the angles.

Discuss your findings.

If you finish this activity you can walk around the room and find angles and take photos of them. Make a Pages page to display your understanding of angles.

  2. I backed each argument with 3 relevant pieces of evidence and details
  3. My argument is mainly in the present tense
  4. I used conditionals; would, could, might, if, unless,
  5. I used connectives:

  1. I used persuasive devices such as:
  • Statistics: ‘More than 50%…..’
  • Emotive language; strong adjective
