Wednesday

Hello everyone!


It’s the end of the Spring Term and what a peculiar ending it is! Well done to all of you who have made the most of the learning activities and suggestions that Mrs Ashby and I have posted for you. We are very proud of you for your motivation and determination to continue to learn, whilst at home in unusual circumstances. Again, another huge thank you to parents who are helping and supporting all the learning at home.

 

Today’s theme for Wednesday is: ‘We love to read Wednesday’.

Share two of your favourite stories with your family at home. Talk about what you enjoy about them. Your family can share theirs too.

 

My favourite story is ‘Rebecca’, written by Daphne Du Maurier. It’s about a woman who marries a rich and successful man, and her life seems happy and content; going on holidays abroad and living in a mansion by the sea. However, you soon realise that all is not what it seems. There’s a strange housekeeper, who wastes no time in explaining to the new wife that her husband was married before, to a strong and determined woman. She soon learns that the previous wife drowned….or was she murdered? I like this story because it is full of suspense! The writer uses lots of figurative language and description to get the reader really hooked.

 

If you are finding that we are putting too many activities on here to be completed in a day, we are more than happy for you to spread some of these out over a few days. For example; the learning theme project could be started in the holidays as there will be no other work set then. Also, the White Rose Maths is further maths for you to complete - you could just watch the daily videos as these are on average only about 8 minutes long and only if you have time then complete the accompanying tasks. Hope that helps. 

 

Have a wonderful Easter break and remember it’s time for family and fun!

 

We’ll be back here after the holiday. Happy Easter everyone!

 

Mrs Ashby and Miss Barrett
