Make sure you support it with a cane.  I had but hadn't attached it to it well enough crying

 

No problem with Lucy's and Daisy's sunflowers - wow, they look so healthy, well done girls 

 

 

Shape Poems 

 

Look quickly, then closely, at the two poems below. The poets have chosen the shape or structure of their poems very carefully. What can we infer about the poems by looking only at the shape of them, and not at the words themselves? Consider the following things and make notes: shape, stanzas (mini paragraphs in the poem), and line lengths.

‘Diamond Poem’ by John Foster and ‘The Autumn Leaves’ by Wes Magee. Now that you can properly read each poem, answer the following questions:

 

 

1. What is each poem about?
2. What is happening in each poem?
3. How do the shapes of the poems help to show what they are about?

 

Now it’s your turn. Think of a subject that you would like to write a poem about. You don’t need
to use any words yet, just draw the shape of the lines that you would like to use. Make sure that
you can explain to the class why you’ve chosen your particular shape or structure.

Arithmetic Test - Week 3

This is your weekly arithmetic test. 

Below you will find the sheet for children to write on and the answers

 

How do we sort and classify animals

Look through the power point and watch the video (click below), that show you have animals are classified into different family groups. 

Choose an animal and tell me how it is classified.  

 

You might have seen, or heard on the news, about anti-racism protests and demonstrations taking place across the world.  These protests have arisen as a result of people with coloured skins being treated differently to white people and not being provided with the same opportunities.

Can you imagine how it might feel to be to told every day that you are different?  The video below shares the experiences of two primary school children talking about how they are treated and how it makes them feel.  

 

Your Message.

 

After watching the video I would like you to think about how you might convey the message that we all the same and we are all equal. 
I've quickly created this picture but im sure, with your creativity, you can produce something much better.  It can be pictures, it could be words.
It would be nice to put all of the creations together to create a poster to display in our classroom.

 

Whilst on this morning's walk I came across this poppy plant. If you look carefully there is one poppy that stands out as being different.
Nature shows how being different can be beautiful
