Good morning Sycamore Class!
I hope that you’re doing well with your home learning so far. I've really enjoyed seeing the photos and work you've done- you definitely look like you’ve been keeping focussed and doing a great job. The weather has been lovely too- have you been able to get out in your gardens and enjoy some fresh air?
I know that lots of you are enjoying the daily workout with Joe Wicks. If you are- keep it up! If you want to try something different, Oti Mabuse is doing an online dance class every day. It can be accessed on Facebook at 11.30 (you’ll have to ask an adult to access it for you).
Another idea for a physical activity is to set up your own carousel. Time yourself doing an activity for 1 minute, then move onto the next. Choose 4 or 5 of the following ideas:
You should be doing at least 20 minutes reading daily. Choose a quiet and comfy spot so you can really enjoy your story. Don’t forget that you can access books online (Bug Club/ Active Learn). If you’re a David Walliams fan, he’s doing a daily story time at 11am. Go to www.worldofdavidwalliams.com to find out more!
Today’s English activity is to write an acrostic poem using your name. I’ve done an example using my name below. Your poem can be made of single words, phrases, alliteration. Try to make your poem as interesting as possible.

In your English book, start by writing the letters of your name down the left hand side of the page. Then you need to think of a word or phrase that starts with each letter in your name. Remember, you can change your mind and edit this as you go along. Use a dictionary or thesaurus to help you, or as an adult for ideas if you get stuck.
Once you’ve got a poem that you’re happy with, write it out in best. Present it in a way that looks interesting. This could be written or typed, with pictures to decorate. I would love to see a photograph of your finished poems- perhaps your adult could email a photo to me? firstname.lastname@example.org
If the answer is 77, what is the question?
In your maths book, write down as many different number sentences that make the answer of 77, for example 70 + 7 = 77.
Spicy challenge: make sure you include all 4 number operations: + - x ÷
Theme- We’ve really enjoyed our Egyptian topic, so I’d like you to continue this from home. Please start by researching more about the Egyptians and making notes in your book. There are already some ideas in your book to help you. I have allocated you all a book about the Egyptians on Bug Club (called All About Mummies), or you could use the following websites:
Well done for another brilliant day of learning. If you need me, please email email@example.com
