We enjoyed speaking to so many of you yesterday. You should all now have your username and password for both Active Learn (Bug Club) and Mathletics. Please ensure you are spending at least 30 minutes on each everyday.
Also a big thank you to all those children who managed to email us copies of their work yesterday. What great growth mindsets you have! Just a kind reminder to sign off your email with your name and class so we know whose work we are responding to, especially if you are using a parents email.
You might also want to have a look at the Pages & Co creative writing competition. We sent out leaflets for the competition last week however we are putting the competition on the Home Learning Blog as well. Hopefully you will feel inspired to take part.

1st lesson: Literacy
Read the text at least twice. As you read the first time, visualise what is happening by creating mental images in your head; feel free to annotate. Absorb the language and as you do so, highlight any key words/phrases that stand out.
Now read for a second time, for understanding. Remember to use our reading strategies to help your understanding of the text. If you don't understand a word, read around the word to help you make meaning. Can you find a smaller word within the tricky word to help you make meaning?
- Who is Greta Thunberg and why is she significant?
- What is Greta’s goal?
- Thinking about some of the actions Greta Thunberg has taken, how would you describe her personality?
- Explain in a few simple words what climate change is.
- Now that you are climate change experts, list at least three small changes YOU can make in your life to make a difference on Earth.

Follow the link below to go to authorfy.com and ask your parents or carer to sign up to the website for free.
1) Watch the videos:
-An introduction to 'Children Who Changed the World'.
-What is a right?
-The inspiration behind 'Children Who Changed the World'.
-A reading from 'Children Who Changed the World'.
2) Watch Marcia's Writing challenge. In the video, she gives you the challenge of writing about your favourite right.
She invites you to write as though you were explaining to someone who knows nothing about rights. Explain what a right is, what some of the different rights are and what your particular right means to you. You can also explain what it would be like and how you would feel if you ever lost that right.
Follow the instructions and the explanations in the videos to help you with your writing.
End of the day
Have a relaxing evening.
