Read 'Jenny's Story'. 

Did Jenny do the right thing? What safety tips can you suggest for walking to and from school? Make a list of your ideas. Here is an example of a list:

  • Do not walk alone. Stick with a friend.
  • Ignore any stranger who tries to speak to you.
  • Don't trust a stranger even if he says he knows your mum.
  • Stay near safe spots, e.g. stay on busy streets even if it takes longer.
  • Avoid places that are unsafe such as narrow unlit streets or lonely lanes.
  • Always trust your instincts. If you feel threatened, get away from the area and tell your parents or the police.

Assembly - Wednesday 7th July

Today's assembly is 'Picture News'.

UNESCO (the United Nations cultural body) has said that the Great Barrier Reef in Australia should be put on a list of World Heritage Sites that are 'in danger' due to damage caused by climate change. The world's biggest coral reef has suffered several bleaching events in the past five years, which caused widespread loss of coral. Scientists say the main reason is rising sea temperatures as a result of global warming, caused by the burning of fossil fuels. UNESCO has urged Australia to take further action on global warming.

Things to talk about at home...

  • What do you know about the Great Barrier Reef? Would you like to visit?
  • Are there any World Heritage Sites near to where you live?
  • What places are special to you? What makes them special? 

English - Wednesday 7th July, Thursday 8th July and Friday 9th July

This week you will be completing your 'Just William' story. 

Remember the grammar that we have worked on during this unit: perfect verb form and the use of informal and formal language including the subjunctive form. Can you include examples of these in your writing? Remember to use informal language for William, the Outlaws and other relevant characters, e.g. the gardener. You will finish writing your story this week - the problem, the resolution and finally the happy ending for William. Can you use any old-fashioned language? 

When you have finished, please proof-read and check your writing. Are the characters well written? Is the setting described? Is dialogue included? Has informal language and old-fashioned vocabulary been used? Has the story been organised into paragraphs? 

Religious Education - Tuesday 6th July

Today you will be considering ways in which churches reflect local culture.

A church is a building where people congregate and worship, but it is also a community of people who share the same religious beliefs. Take a look at this presentation to find out more. 

Year 4 - On Worksheet 2A, write about two churches or festivals. 

Year 5 - Use the internet to find out about churches in our local area. Record the information about one of the churches that you find. 

Year 6 - On Worksheet 2B, write bullet-points to help you to give a short oral presentation about similarities and differences between two or more churches or festivals. Think about how churches or festivals might reflect local culture and traditions. Ask somebody at home to record your presentation and then email it across to me. 

English - Tuesday 6th July

Today you will be planning a 'Just William' short story and writing the opening. 

Now that you know the characters in the 'Just William' stories really well, you are going to write your own short story about William. You will need to choose which other characters will also be included, e.g. Mr and Mrs Brown, Robert, Ethel, the Outlaws, Violet Elizabeth, Mr and Mrs Bott and perhaps a new character, e.g. another aunt or uncle, a schoolteacher, a gardener, a shopkeeper. Will the story be set in the house, the garden, at school, in the woods? You should try to write in the style of Richmal Crompton and use brackets, dashes and commas to show parenthesis and use informal language for William and the Outlaws. 

Start by planning your story. You can do this in any way that you choose but you need to outline the plot - a beginning, a problem, a resolution and an ending that turns out well for William. When you are fully prepared, write your opening paragraph. Will your opening be a description, some dialogue or some action? 

Reading - Monday 5th July

Today you will be reading and answering questions on the theme of 'Euro 2020: Week Three Roundup'. 

Year 4 Text and Questions

Year 5 and 6 Text and Questions

Reflect and Discuss - Discuss the following question with friends and family:

  • Why is football the most popular sport in the world?

There doesn't have to be a right answer so feel free to play with ideas and explore why you hold certain beliefs. 

Use paragraphs to explain the different reasons behind its popularity. 

Use a final paragraph to explain and share your conclusions. 

Assembly - Monday 5th July

Today's assembly is called 'Safety at Home'. 

More accidents occur at home than anywhere else. 

  • The most common types of accidents in the home are falls.
  • Boys are more likely to have accidents than girls.
  • Two million children each year attend A&E departments following accidents at home.
  • Over 4000 children a year are injured in falls on stairs.
  • The most common place for accidents is the lounge/living room. 

Look at this picture of a living room. How many dangers can you spot? Make a list of the dangers. 

Look at this picture of a kitchen. How many dangers can you spot? Make a list of the dangers. 

Thought for the day:

  • Safety is as simple as ABC - Always Be Careful.
