This week's learning (30th March 2020)
This week our focus is writing a poem about the wind. You will explore 3 poems by Christine Rossetti to identify how she has used prepositional phrases. You will create your own poem with a focus on using prepositional phrases to create an image in the readers mind.
Click below to open your task. There are 5 tasks to complete for this week.
Remember, you can present your work any way you like, using plain paper, your exercise book or the templates I have given you. Any questions, ask us on our class blog!

Grammar - writing verbs in the past tense
With some verbs (regular verbs) you just need to add 'ed' on the end to change them into the past tense.
However, some verbs (irregular verbs) don't follow this rule! Take a look at the examples below.
Rewrite the following sentences in the past tense.
Example: It is sunny---------- it was sunny.
- I think PE is fun.
- My sister looks after me.
- We need to tidy up the classroom.
- I can see a bird in the tree.
- I will make a cake.
- I take the dog for a walk.
Rewrite the text in the past tense. All answers will be posted next week!
Check your '2do' on purple mash. Continue reading chapter 3 and 4 and complete the quizzes and tasks.
This week we are going to learn about perimeter. Watch the video below for some new learning!
Please practise your times tables on Times Tables Rock Stars (this can be accessed online or on the app https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student). Please also go on Mathletics, where we have set you specific tasks related to this week's activities (https://login.mathletics.com/).

We will upload the answers next week, so you can self assess your work.
This week, you are going to create a factfile about VOLCANOES! In Italy, there are 2 big volcanoes, Mount Vesuvius and Mount Etna. Here are pictures of them both.
1. Please read and watch the information on this website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z849q6f/articles/zd9cxyc
There are two fun videos, and even a quiz to see if you can remember what you learned!
2. In your home learning journals, write down 20 facts you learnt about volcanoes.
3. Choose how you want to present your learning! You can:
a) Make a factfile on PurpleMash
b) Make a leaflet on PurpleMash
c) Create a leaflet using plain paper, and put it in your home learning journal.
HANDWRITING / SPELLING
This week we are recapping on suffixes (a letter or group of letters added to the end of a root word). Suffixes change the meaning of the word. We are focusing on: 'ing,' 'ful' and 'ly'.
Examples: walk ----- walking
calm ----- calmly
If the root word ends in 'e' and the suffix begins with a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) then the 'e' is taken off the root word before adding the suffix (eg if the root word is use then the 'e' is taken off to add the suffix 'ing' - using.)
If the suffix begins with a consonant (any other letter not a vowel) then the 'e' usually remains (eg if the root word is peace then the 'e' stays to add the suffix 'ful' - peaceful.)
Look at the following words. Can you add the suffix 'ing,' 'ful,' or 'ly' to these words?
live (this could become living or lively)
Learn to spell the words with the appropriate suffixes and practice these words as part of your handwriting. Some words could have more than one suffix like the first example!
To help you remember how to spell the words why don't you try counting the syllables in each word and making up silly sentences!
1: Attached is a short fable for you to read. Why not share it and enjoy with your parents/carers?
A fable is a short story, usually with animals as characters and conveys a moral (gives a lesson to learn). This fable is called 'The Lion and the Mouse'
Read the fable and discuss with your parents/carers what you think the message of this fable is - what is the moral or lesson to learn? I will tell you what the moral of the story is next week once you have had time to think about it :)
