With a change in the weather, we've decided to stay in doors today and play board games. Abbie, Jack and I will be playing Harry Potter Cluedo! Try playing a board game with your family and let me know how you get on. It could even been noughts and crosses, charades or hangman. Send me your pictures on Google Classroom, in the General folder. Have fun!
So from today, all English and Maths tasks will be published only on HWB in the Google Classroom. This page will now only be used for updates and for fun/wellbeing activities!!!

Remember you can send photos to me on Google Classroom in the General folder!
Choose a favourite sea creature and draw or print a picture of it in the centre of a piece of paper. Write words around it to describe how it looks and moves. Use your ideas to write sentences, using a rich vocabulary to personify their creature. For example ‘The crab grabbed the seaweed for his lunch’ or ‘The sea worm snoozed lazily on its rocky couch.’ You can also use these ‘missing word’ sentences as prompts. For example ‘The starfish… at the fish’ or ‘The penguin… to the pool’. You could research a range of personification poems to read for inspiration or use the ones below.
Today we will be solving calculations that are hidden in number stories.

Read James Reeves’ poem, The Sea. highlight examples of verbs used in the poem and explain what the poet thinks about the sea. Can you identify other features of the poem, such as its rhyming structure and alliteration?
The sea is a hungry dog,
Giant and grey.
He rolls on the beach all day.
With his clashing teeth and shaggy jaws
Hour upon hour he gnaws
The rumbling, tumbling stones,
And 'Bones, bones, bones, bones! '
The giant sea-dog moans,
Licking his greasy paws.
And when the night wind roars
And the moon rocks in the stormy cloud,
He bounds to his feet and snuffs and sniffs,
Shaking his wet sides over the cliffs,
And howls and hollos long and loud.
But on quiet days in May or June,
When even the grasses on the dune
Play no more their reedy tune,
With his head between his paws
He lies on the sandy shores,
So quiet, so quiet, he scarcely snores.
