Joe Wicks is back for another week to motivate us for our love for PE. Please subscribe to his YouTube channel below to take part in his live PE lessons from 9-9.30am. Remember it is important to stay fit and active even though you are indoors.
This term, as part of your reading learning, you are required to use Bug Club everyday for 30 minutes and then spend the other 30 minutes of your reading session to complete another reading comprehension activity we will provide.
When using Bug Club, it is important you are answering the questions carefully, by referring to the text to find the correct evidence to support your answers. Your teachers will be monitoring your answers carefully, so ensure you are putting in the same effort that you would at school.
When answering reading comprehension questions, remember to be using taught techniques from school and annotate the questions and text, remembering to also refer to the text in your answers to support your points. A good tip is to read the questions first before you read the text, so you have a rough idea on where the clues for the questions and answer may be.
It is important you are reading everyday to help you develop your reading skills as well as learn new vocabulary, which will make your spoken language and writing even better! These skills will help you later on in life and out of school, not just for your learning in school so please ensure you are reading regularly.

LO: To research about the Ancient Egyptians.
In this final term, we will be looking at the great history of the Ancient Egyptians. It’s important to learn about world history to better understand society and it’s changes over time. In addition, it’s all very interesting, how ancient civilisations adapted and progressed through years, brought about magnificent architecture and change. Our topic rationale this term is to respect the beliefs of others and it’s the right of every child to have access to the information that can enable that and develop our well-being.
So, without further ado, this week, we will be writing a non-chronological report about the Ancient Egyptians. Who where they? When and where are they from? How long was their era?
Thereafter, pick three topics to write about (guidance is given on the web link page) and get researching! Write these in note form to help you.
