Sinjon’s courgettes and broad beans – great growing Sinjon!
Welcome to Tuesday!
Don’t forget to keep working on your Science in Google Classroom – you can’t work on the files directly as they are PDF so you can either print them off or copy into your home learning book. Next time I will make sure they are word documents so that you can do it on the platform.
In case you didn’t see it yesterday:-
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 add your photo directly to the Blog. if you are doing work on Google Classrooms or another platform this will share your work with us when you hand it in.
To share your work, you can do one of the following options:
1. email a photo or attachment to us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
The bold are the new ways that you can now send us your work.
I hope that you have made a start on My Profile on Purple Mash, remember you have until the end of the week to hand it in. I have also set another 2do on the site called Timetable Navigation, you have until next Tuesday to complete it. This task will take you less time to do, you need to read an example of a typical timetable from secondary school then answer some questions about it.
With all the lovely hot weather we have been having it is a timely reminder that this is Water Safety Week. The following website has details about how to keep safe, quizzes and lots of interesting information. So please do have a look – you never know it could save your or someone you know’s life.

LI – to write a magazine, newspaper or website article.
Task 1 – Read and make notes on the fascinating jungle survival story of Juliane Koepcke, using the PDF extract from Survivors by David Long here
Note: Due to the sensitive nature of this story, it is advised that it is read and discussed with an adult.
Task 2 – Imagine you are a news reporter who has just heard the news that a young girl – Juliane Koepcke, has survived eleven days in the jungle.
You have to write an article, suitable for a children’s adventure magazine, online newspaper or website, about the amazing survival story of Juliane – make sure you include information from the story so that it is factually correct.
An example of an article written about Juliane can be found here: https://www.theguardia n.com/lifeandstyle/201 9/apr/07/from-the- archive-1972-observer- the-girl-who-came-back-alive-from-amazon (Note: this is a news page, so will contain links to current news articles).

Please see Mrs O’Donnell’s post for today’s stilling time activity.
Keep going with Mr Garvey’s activities or Joe Wicks PE, or some similar exercise such as Fitness Marshall, other online exercises. The most important thing is that you get your blood pumping and get yourself out of breath!
I will not be posting any answers today as all your work has the answers with it and your English work will all be different. I’m really looking forward to reading your news article – I was completely hooked and couldn’t believe it was a TRUE story!
Have a good morning’s learning!
Is there meant to only be one link for the English?
Good spot Iona, I missed off the PDF file for you to read! It’s in the correct place in the blog now.
Thanks Mrs Poole. No worries. It said to read something and I thought ‘but there’s no link to read anything off!’. Thanks for putting it on. Iona x
I’ve got the book
Dear Mrs Poole, i have clicked on the big sing link . Are we really singing in Japanese ? I clicked on Song two . I have a friend in japan and i don’t think he will be impressed with my translation of head shoulders knees and toes 😐
Ha! That was a change wasn’t it! It’s really hard to sing a song in an unfamiliar language.
Well done for having a go!
