Important notice

Hello Purple Class! There is a little change in where you will find your work now. Your work for each day can now be found on the page: Remote learning Upper Key Stage 2 - Turquoise, Gold and Purple Classes.

On this page you can still find all the links to our class read. We have finished reading Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson, and I am now reading Krindlekrax by Philip Ridley. You can also enjoy Mrs Whinton reading The Wizard of Oz.

Also, I will put your weekly spellings on this page.

Hello Purple Class!


Well! What a start to 2021 – not what any of us wanted. I know times are difficult again but we must stay positive and stay safe!

 

You have all worked so hard so far this year and have been making great progress, you need to keep up the hard work at home now too! Please make sure you complete the work to the same standard you would if you were in class with me.

 

Remote learning for those who are working from home. Please find below, lessons and activities for home learning. Please don't forgot to email me over your work every day so I can check it, mark it and reply to you and see how well you are doing!

Remote learning email address: purplehw@tonacliffe.lancs.sch.uk

 

I am really looking forward to seeing your work each day and responding to it - although you are having to do it from home, I still want to see you learn and progress.

 

For key worker and vulnerable children, just a reminder that windows are open in class no matter the weather and it can become rather chilly, so you will need to layer up.

 

Take care.

Mr German

Spellings week beginning 22/2/21

English Lesson: https://youtu.be/xpVP75T5ML8

Unfortunately poor Mrs Devine gets cut off on the video. If you have a look at the powerpoint that contains Mrs Devine's example and other pointers too.

In the conclusion section we are writing a brief summing up of the creature.

This could start 'In conclusion,'

Then look to the future of the animal.

This can start 'Looking to the future'

Then, if there are any interesting facts that have not been used earlier add those.

Then finally do a glossary of any subject specific words you have use as readers might not know the meaning.

 At the end of this lesson you will have finished your reports.

​​​​​​Online thesaurus

 

Mrs Sutcliffe has very kindly made a video for us all to use about how to use an online thesaurus as we know not everyone has a thesaurus at home. You know how much we love you to use ambitious vocabulary choices so this should be really helpful for you when doing your English work.
