Today is Saint George’s Day. Saint George is the patron saint of England. I have attached an information PowerPoint to this blog. Could you use this and any other information you can find out to create a fact file or information poster all about St. George, you could include pictures as well as some super writing. I would love to see what you can create when we are back in school or you could take a picture and email it to school to show me.

The BBC Bitesize lessons today look useful again. The maths lesson is looking at negative numbers. We covered this at the start of the spring term, but it would be good to recap it now. The English lesson is all about adverbs? Can you remember what an adverb is? Adverbs are used to describe verbs – they tell us how something is done. For example, the boy ran quickly. Adverbs can be used in your descriptive writing so why not have a look at the lesson and see if you can use some adverbs the next time you do a piece of writing.

Don’t forget that the science work is still on Purple Mash. Have a look at the information then create a leaflet all about sound.

Keep up the amazing work,

Miss Gradwell
