Good morning children, 

This will be our last session until after half term.

 

Today, I would like you to think about the video we watched at the beginning of the week, Ruckus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ji1KM1BbAyY. I would like you to imagine that you are a newspaper reporter and create a report about the events that happened and think about what happened to the jewel in the end. See the newspaper template below to help you.

 

Secondly I would like you to recap on short multiplication by completing the sums in the document below. Write these in your exercise book.

 

I hope that you have a lovely holiday and why not have a go at baking banana bread using the link below https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/news/watch_newsround .

Secondly, as our geography topic is about Italy I would like you to try and find out what these Italian words mean: Per Favore, Scusie, Buongiorno, Come Stai,  Grazie, Buonasera.  In English they are Hello, Goodbye, Please, Thank you, How are you and Excuse me.

Which Italian word matches the English word? Can you find out and then use them to speak to your family in Italian?

Dear children, 

I know that some of you are missing school today because of this virus that is spreading around, but you are doing a really important job in helping keep everyone else safe by staying at home.

 

Please remember not to be frightened, good things are happening in amongst the bad and you can still do your learning at home.

 

The books that myself and Mrs Shipton have sent you are for you to continue your learning.

If you have any problems understanding any of the learning that has been sent please email myself or Mrs Shipton on the addresses below:

l.carruthers@stthomaswerneth.oldham.sch.uk

sshipton@stthomaswerneth.oldham.sch.uk

 

Today, after you have completed some of your set learning we would like you to create a rainbow. You can use pencil, paints, glitter pens, pencil crayons or felt tips to decorate it. Stick it in your window for everyone passing to see. Let's spread hope that after the storm rainbows will be seen.  Get your parents to take a picture of your work and send it to us on the email addresses above and we will upload it to the website.

 

Lots of love

 

Mrs Carruthers and Mrs Shipton
