Big clap for this chap - well done for 'getting to grips' with translating shapes and challenging yourself. What would your top tips be for translating shapes?
Evie has been using our purple polishing pen strategy when editing her spellings. Well done Evie.
I am so impressed with the presentation of Evie's home learning in maths and English. Can you spot where she has used higher level punctuation effectively in this composition inspired by the 'Titanium' music video?
Week commencing 11th May
Ladies and gentleman, we are finishing the week on a high. I am so proud of both Lily for her continued dedication to home learning (see pic below) and Connor for taking on board advice given. He has completed not one, by two versions of this week's writing task. Check out his second draft below. Well done both of you.
Reef's alternative ending to the 'Wake Me Up' music video...I have highlighted some of most powerful and effective vocabulary choices. What effect do they have on you as the reader? In what ways could this piece be uplevelled do you think?
Instead of walking to the almost deserted city they woke up the day after to the sound of loud decorating and cheering! Maybe they thought they were gone maybe the town’s people were happy they had gone else where. But no they looked out the window to see all the town’s people holding gifts and waiting on their lawn with a whole party set up with the mark they both had made out of ice perched upon a golden podium. The decorations looked perfectly amazing with with tables draped in golden leaf table cloths and path ways drowned in beautiful flowers and the most jaw-dropping awe inducing dresses make the perfect size for each of them. They stepped outside to collect the dresses and put them on. Once they came back out the town’s people started singing a traditional song from their religion. The party commenced and history was made that day forth the town has welcomed those with the mark and even those without. The tale was told throughout learning and was classed as the day of peace. The tale lived on for years to come and the marked people live closely and happily along side the unmarked. The holiday called day of the peace was celebrated once a year with a festival.
Wow! Jessica is on a role...I love the way she has laid out her Maths learning with full sentences marked by capital letters and full stops as well as different representations of her thinking.
Off to a great start this week with these spelling skills from Jessica. She has been using our online spelling menu to revise Year 3 and 4 words as well as practising our Year 5 and 6 words. Well done Jess.
Week commencing 4th May

Can you spot an expanded noun phrase, a simile and three interesting verb choices in this piece? How would you improve this piece further?
Check out this piece inspired by The Lighthouse video which was Monday's task...what text type do you think it is? What are the clues? How would you uplevel it further?
On a night so calm but stormy, the villagers cheered to the light houses beam passing above them. But yet the lighthouse keeper kept himself stowed away in the lighthouse scribbling his life’s work on paper. But then all off a sudden a tragedy happened.14/3/12
I am here at Portland with rod the lighthouse keeper today on the daily jibber jab newspaper we will be interviewing the lighthouse keeper, a villager and a boat crew member!
“I felt as if the towns fate was on my hands, I felt as if I was helpless. The terror of the light malfunctioning is rare let alone when a boat is coming into port. I was just glad the village was there for me and I’m glad the the boat crew are all safe and well.” Says Rod from the town harbour.
We were lucky I guess when we saw the lights go out, there was a huge rush to gather lanterns and we quickly rushed up the hill to the towering lighthouse. We are all safe and well and we all thought we lit a candle of happiness in old rods heart. Says William from the warmth of his own house.
It was terrifying we couldn’t see a thing, we were almost blind!when we saw the light go out we all thought it was the end but by luck or coincidence the light began to fade back on but not the lighthouse beams the whole village was creating the light for us. It was a beautiful sight to behold! Said john from the very same boat.
What a Miracle it was they no one was injured and rod now joined the village in the tavern weekly to celebrate good health. What a wonderful ending to this tragic event. That’s all for now
There are two correct answers in the maths learning below and one incorrect. Can you work out which is which? How would you explain your answers to these questions?
