Good Morning everyone, we are almost there and I certainly have mixed feelings about it. It’s been great to have seen your resilience, learning to adapt to the change of home learning, but teaching without seeing you face to face has been very strange.
You certainly have risen to the challenges over this last week and I’m very proud of your effort. The tasks for today are as follows;
Task 1 – Health and Wellbeing – What makes you laugh?
Our Joyful June Calendar suggests that we eat something we enjoy, which seems a bit lame to me, we wouldn’t really eat something if we didn’t enjoy it. So instead I’ve jumped ahead to Saturday, which asks us to think of something which makes you laugh and how it makes you feel?
I love watching videos with people doing silly stuff, you can almost predict what will happen, but its still funny!
Can you tell me what you enjoy to make you laugh and how it feels when you have the opportunity to laugh with your friends?
Task 2 – Day 4 Sumdog Challenge Maths
You have all managed an amazing effort in this last week, today will be the final challenge with a Times Table Challenge. Hadeel has been #mathsboss again with a fantastic effort in both the grammar and maths challenges.
Results for Wednesday were;
Maths Challenge – Hadeel, Eva and Logan
Grammar Challenge – Hadeel, Clara and Logan. Points will appear with a message on your page, prizes in post.
One last big effort and when the holidays start you’ll be missing your Sumdog Challenge, wait and see!!
Task 3 – Reading – Cole’s Kingdom
Can you finish the ebook Cole’s Kingdom (we had read up to chapter 4) and reflect on Grandma’s role in Cole’s experience.
She had given Cole the “keys he needed”, so did she know what was likely to happen, had she been there herself?
Take some time to think about it, I don’t need you to write anything just make the connections between the characters.
Over the Summer break think about the Summer Reading Challenges, I will put a couple of links below, but it is super important that you keep reading. Moving in to P7 there will be a greater expectation on you to improve literacy and writing. You will most likely start the term with the dreaded cold writing! Be proactive, practise writing a story from your imagination each week. It doesn’t need to be epic, just a simple story plan, remembering all the things which make a piece of writing exceptional; use of vocabulary, correct punctuation, paragraphs, a good twist to heighten the story. Practise writing in the 3rd person, as though you are watching the character, 1st person may involve a lot of direct speech which can be tricky in a short piece. Most of all just enjoy reading a good book, it will give you lots of inspiration and remember you don’t need to re-invent the wheel.
A number of the other classes are meeting today with Google Meets, I know no-one (other than Eva) was particularly keen to meet before but if you fancy coming together today at 2, I’ll set up a link and I’ll be there, maybe I’ll be the sad and lonely teacher by herself but I’ll be there!!
Have a good day and join the meet if you fancy a chat and a wee laugh together!
