5B Wednesday 1st April - How are you?

Date: 1st Apr 2020 @ 9:57am

Hi 5B,

How are you all? smiley

I hope you are still enjoying the home learning activities and that you are all taking good care of yourselves. I’ve loved reading about what you have been up to and the examples of work that you have shared. Remember you can keep in contact with everyone using our blog or using Purple Mash.

This week, use either the blog or Purple Mash 2Email to let me know: 

  • What have you enjoyed about the work?
  • Is there anything you have found more challenging?
  • How you are finding being at home all day?
  • What do you like/not like about being out of school?

We all know that it is very different learning at home. Who has got themselves into a routine everyday? I really look forward to my 30-minute session everyday where I listen to an audiobook. What’s your favourite part of the day?   

Finally, Miss Worden and I have absolutely loved reading some of your '-ation' poems! I’m really impressed with the quality of your work 5B. Please put these on our home learning blog that I started on Monday 30th March as I’d love to read more! Well done for all of your efforts and achievements so far 5B! smiley

I really look forward to hearing from you all.

Mrs Berry

P.S In the spirit of April Fool's day... let's all share a joke to make your friends smile! laugh 

To celebrate this mischievous day, I’ve looked at some of my favourite pranksters from literature.

Mr and Mrs Twit: The Twits by Roald Dahl
Many of Roald Dahl's children's books involve mischief and pranks, but The Twits features possibly some of the meanest pranks in children's literature; Mr Twit and Mrs Twit spend the majority of the story being awful to each other, playing cruel tricks to cause upset for the other.

"'What's happened?' screamed Mrs. Twit. They stood in the middle of the room, looking up. All the furniture, the big table, the chairs, the sofa, the lamps, the little side tables, the cabinet, the ornaments, the electric heater, the carpet, everything was stuck upside down to the ceiling. The pictures were upside down on the walls. And the floor they were standing on was absolutely bare. What's more, it had been painted white to look like the ceiling."

Hi Mrs Berry, Miss Wilson and Class 5B,
I have really enjoyed doing the character maps this week and finding out about Shakespeare's life. I have found my maths quite challenging but the videos have been helpful.

My brother and I are into a good routine and I quite like working next to him on our kitchen table. I also like spending more time with my family especially when we go in the garden and make up challenges.

I miss all my friends and teachers at school because they make me laugh and make me have a great day. I can't wait to see you all again (hopefully soon!).
Stay safe,
Daniel

Miss Wilson wrote:

Aww Daniel, great that you are working well next to your brother in the kitchen and spending more time with your family! That is lovely to hear. I miss you all too and being at school, hopefully we will all be back soon!

Well done for working so hard - keep it up!

Hi everybody, I don't like being off school in this situation as during these circumstances, we're limited to going out only for essentials and a daily walk. I really miss all of my friends but i like we are still communicating online.

Hope you are all OK,

Cameron

Hi Cameron, hope you’re ok. It is hard not being at school but it sounds like you are working so well at home and keeping a good routine. Going out for a daily walk is good - I’m doing the same! It’s also important to keep in touch with friends and family as much as you can :) hopefully we will all be back at school soon!

Well done and keep up the good work!

Hi Ella,

Congratulations on achieving 100 reads! What text are you currently reading? How's the science going?

On TT Rockstars, we are currently in 4th place with a mean studio speed of 3.93 seconds. Please keep going on 5B to help us reach 1st place!

Hi Daniel,

It's lovely to hear from you. It sounds like you're really enjoying the tasks - well done for all your handwork! When you were researching about Shakespeare's life, did anything surprise you? What was your favourite fact?

Wow challenges in the garden sounds like fun! What a lovely way to work Daniel sat next to your brother - I'm sure he likes that too! I miss running after you at the end of the school day with your lunchbox in my hand : )

I hope you and your family have a lovely day.

Hi Cameron,

It's lovely to hear from you.

Learning at home is very different but it sounds like you are producing some fantastic work! Like you, I'm going for daily walks and I enjoy that. What tasks have you enjoyed the most? Have you been doing the Joe Wicks workouts?

I totally agree with you Cameron, I really like how 5B is communicating on our blog. I love reading all your comments they make me smile! : )

I hope you and your family have a lovely day.

Hi Mrs Berry,
When I was doing my Shakespeare research I was surprised at how many brothers and sisters he had - 5 (Gilbert, Joan, Anne, Richard and Edmund).

This is my -action poem
For your information,
When I saw that kitten my eyes filled with adoration,
I felt a sudden sensation,
I thought I could do anything even elevation!
Then I noticed, on her leg she had an inflammation,
My brain was set for fixation,
Then I did some restoration,
And some preparation,
Her eyes filled with admiration,
As I helped her and loved her.
