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 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 and vocabulary 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 know how to organise ideas around a theme.
You will begin your writing today. You will write your introduction and the first paragraph of your main body. Remember to begin with a title for your non-chronological report.
Your introduction should begin with a hook sentence – there are many ways to do that: a short, powerful sentence, emotive language or a rhetorical question, decide which may best fit your writing. Explain a bit about the religion during the Ancient Egyptian era and briefly introduce the two main paragraphs you will be writing.
First main paragraph
Your first main paragraph should begin with a subheading which tells the reader what the paragraph will be about. Begin with a topic sentence about the god you have selected that details what the paragraph will be about. After that, include details about the topic, linking ideas with phrases and adverbials. Don’t forget to refer to the success criteria for guidance of what else you need to include. A model will be uploaded for you to look at for 3pm with examples of the success criteria included.
Please edit your writing when you have finished.

You will be making a leaflet on how the Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses influenced Ancient Egyptian life.
You need to:
