Good morning Metis class - Happy Thursday.
I have seen some fantastic pictures of your learning this week so far and I can't wait to share them in our video on Friday - If you haven't sent in any photos this week but want to be featured send photos by 3'oclock to Metis@studleygreen.wilts.sch.uk
Well done to Emilia, Kobi, Logan, Natalia, Zander, Dylan and Teddy for completing Tuesday's maths quiz - if you haven't completed it yet find the link here:
I would like you to watch a youtube video that I have made for you. This will be the same everyday as it is a recap of all the sounds we have learnt - please say the sounds along with the video as you normally would at school.
Today we will be using all our knowledge of the ir,er,ur and or sound to decode and read this story.
Say the sounds and read the words for the story.
After reading the story, answer these questions:
Why does Burt not let Frank have a turn on the hopper?
How does Frank feel about it?
Do you think Frank should help Burt?
In your packs you will find a sheet with lots of spellings on. Please can you read as many spellings out loud as you can. Choose a line of spellings (5 spellings) and write them in your books.
At the end of Bob’s diary entry he says
‘How I love my man on the moon job!’
This sentence doesn’t have a full stop at the end - it has something else. We call this an exclamation mark!
Read through the slides below to learn all about how to use exclamation marks and exclamation sentences.
Task: Can you pretend to be Bob and write two exclamation sentences one starting with ‘What’ and one starting with ‘How’.
For example: ‘What a busy day!’ ‘How I love having a bubble bath before bed!’
(For grown ups: Let your child sound out and write the words themselves rather than writing it for them)

Task: Today we are going to write our essay about all our learning.
Use this essay plan to help you structure your essay. (For grown ups - The children are answering the question on the left. Use the right hand side as a sentence starter and let your child finish the sentence)
Take a read of Miss Broadhead’s example essay below:
What does it take to be a great explorer?
To be a great explorer you need to be brave and not afraid to take risks and do things no one else has done. Ranulph Fiennes is in the Guinness World records because he is the worlds greatest living explorer. He travelled by foot across the North and South pole. Amy Johnson was a female pilot. Her achievements were amazing in 1930 because she was a woman. Christopher Colombus sailed across the unknown ocean because he wanted to find new lands. He found new lands but they already had people living there called indegenious people. Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon. He said ‘One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’.
Have a go yourself.
