Happy Friday!

I just want to say thank you so much for the amazing work I received from some of you yesterday, it made me very proud to say how hard you are working at home! I will be updating this page here with pictures of your work most days so keep an eye out and remember to email it to mgoodwin@birklandsschool.co.uk

Here's today's English...

Have a wonderful day!

'Rain before Rainbow's' Bitmoji Image

You can read the book here or listen to it being read here.

Today's tasks:

In this story, the author uses weather and the environment as a metaphor for feelings and emotions. For example “the wind will start blowing and tall waves will crash” makes me think of fears and worries. When we are afraid, it can sometimes feel like we are battling against something strong and powerful like “tall waves”.

  1. Watch this video to remind yourself about similes and metaphors and take the quiz (on the same page as the video). For each emotion below, think about how it makes you feel and write a simile or metaphor to describe it.
  • Happy-
  • Excited-
  • Calm-
  • Worried-
  • Angry-
  • Upset-

E.g. Calm- A feather floating in the gentle breeze

  1. If you put all of the similes and metaphors together, you will have a poem all about feelings and emotions. I would love to share it on your class page if you send it to mgoodwin@birklandsschool.co.uk

have a good weekend

Happy New Year year three's!

I hope you had a lovely break, we are starting this year off differently, but I know that you, being the superstars that you are, will work just as hard. Today and tomorrow I will be putting your work straight onto here.Today's English is below, and each week I will upload some books for you to read on this reading page.

Have a wonderful day!

'Rain before Rainbow's' Bitmoji Image

Today and tomorrow we will be focussing on a book all about optimism and how brighter, happier things are just around the corner, even when we are feeling down and dreary. I think this is an important message to keep us positive in these strange times.

You can read the book here or listen to it being read here.

Today's tasks:

1. Read/ listen to the story and write any words that need clarifying like we do in class. You are going to find out what those words mean (by using the other words around it, asking a grown up, using a dictionary/ online) to create a glossary.

E.g. Glossary:

  • Duel- a fight or battle between two people/ things.
  • Courageous- brave

2. In this story, the author uses weather as a metaphor for thoughts and feelings. Re- read the story and think about how the character is feeling at the different weather points. Choose one of the pictures from the story below and add thought bubbles to show how the characters are feeling at that point. (You could have a go at drawing the picture or just writing your ideas in thought bubbles on paper).

E.g.

Remember to send your amazing work to mgoodwin@birklandsschool.co.uk, I look forward to reading it!
