Harry Potter Creative Write

Hi guys!

You’re task this week is to imagine that you have just asked Harry Potter if you could sit down in his carriage as there’s no where else to sit. What would you say to him? How are you feeling knowing that he’s famous? What magical sweet would you share with him? What magic does the sweet entail?

Write for me a couple of paragraphs using all of the descriptive writing we have been using in our English lessons (relative clauses, noun phrases, ed starters, speech-ON A NEW LINE, personification, similes and metaphors).

Happy Writing! I look forward to reading them.

Captain Conjecture says…

Captain Conjecture wants you to prove that these calculations are correct.

What number goes where the question marks are?

12?2 ÷ 6 = 212

14?4 ÷ 7 = 212

22?3 ÷ 7 = 321.6

323 x ?1 = 13243

Remember to use the inverse when solving these calculations and explain your answers in full sentences.

Good Luck

Mr Carr

Writing Opportunity

Hi Everybody!

After watching the video clip ‘Eye of the Storm’, we thought it would be great for you guys to write about another section of the film. It would be great if you could write about what’s in the box that the mysterious character drops? The link to the video is at the bottom. If you watch up to 2 minutes (where the box is dropped) and then write about the following;

1. What’s in the box?

2. Why does the character drop the box over the edge?

3. Where does it land?

4. Does somebody pick it up from below?

Be very creative and remember to use all the descriptive writing you have learnt so far.

Parents Support

Dear Parents,

Following parents evening, if you wish to support your child with extra learning at home here are the following areas that you can help with.

Spellings-The children will be bringing home their spelling log books on a weekly basis. The words that are logged are all the words that the children have misspelt and need revising/learning. It is important that the children learn these words on a daily basis and bring the log books to school every day, so that they can log any other words that are misspelt in their work.

P.E.E- When the children are answering questions relating to the text they need to be able to explain their answers clearly. One really effective way of doing this is to use P.E.E=Point, Evidence, Explain. The children need to state their point, back it up with a piece of evidence and then explain it. Below is a useful link which you can go over with your child.

Maths-Firstly, the ‘MyMaths’ homework can only be completed on a laptop or computer. Kindles, phones and tablets don’t work as they require flash player, which is not supported on most devices. If your child is having any issues they are more than welcome to complete the tasks set at school.

In terms of other useful sites to help support your children with their times tables and general maths please see the list below.

Any problems please get back to us.

Kind Regards

Mr Carr and Mrs Cooper
