Welcome to week three! I saw this picture and thought how much we’re missing you all and what a good team you all are!

From now on each week Mrs FitzGerald and I have to see at least one piece of English and maths work and then one other piece of work of your choosing. There are lots of you who are already sharing your work with us each week so thank you for this and please keep this up, those that haven’t been doing this we do now expect to see evidence of your work every week. You can email us photos of your work or if you are doing work on Google Classrooms or another platform that shares your work with us.

To share your work, you can do one of the following options:

1. email a photo or attachment to us at r.poole@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk or deputy@ellel-st-johns.lans.sch.uk

2. attach a photo to the blog posts

3. Save it into the class OneDrive (link shared on Parent App).

4. If it is on a learning platform eg Purple Mash or Mathletics we will see the work.


We are continuing to think about the transition to high school. Please login to Purple Mash where I have set you a task called Transition my profile in your 2Dos. It needs to be completed by the end of the week. If while you are thinking about moving on to your next school you think of a question or worry then please email me; your responses will be confidential (r.poole@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk) and we will aim to answer/respond either through videos or when we get into school.


Extension Theme: Explorers and Adventurers (Part Two)

Find out what it takes to survive in the jungle, read a real-life jungle survival story and dive into Katherine Rundell’s thrilling novel, ‘The Explorer’.

When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.

Task 1 – Explore how to survive in the jungle by watching this video and making notes: How to survive in the jungle – Lonely Planet Kids https://www.youtube.c om/watch?v=9D14IdTJg 4E

Task 2 – Make notes on the video clip you have just watched, you may want to watch it again and pause it to write your notes.

Task 3 – Read the information on this website https://adventure.howstuffworks.com/survival/wilderness/jungle-survival6.htm and make extra notes if necessary. I haven’t checked the suggested links at the bottom of page 2 so cannot verify that they are safe to visit. If you do visit them please do so with your parent.

Task 4 –  Based on what you have watched and read, create an instruction manual /user guide titled ‘How to Survive the Jungle’ which could accompany someone about to undertake a jungle adventure.

You may want to include sections such as:

  • key equipment to take
  • how to make a shelter
  • how to stay safe in the jungle

Make sure your guide is easy to follow – with clear instructional writing and pictures/ diagrams to support your information.

Are there any challenges that you could have a go at, you can always share your work/ideas with me and Mrs Fitz

Have a good morning’s learning!
