BOOK WEEK 1st - 5th March

Monday 1st March

This is BOOK WEEK! This year things will be different as we are not all at school. However, we can still have fun and enjoy books together. 

When you return to school next week, you will receive your £1 book voucher. Look at all the different books that you can buy for £1 with your voucher. They will be available in most supermarkets.

 

Take a sneaky peek inside the books by clicking here.

 Book Week Art and Craft Activity

Please send a photo of your work

  Roll up your sleeves and get involved with this year's Book Week activity.

We would like you to create something from an item at home. It must relate to a fiction book or non-fiction book. Be creative. What could you do? 

PLEASE COMPLETE THIS TASK BY FRIDAY. Time will be given each day to work on this.

 

SEND A PHOTO OF YOUR WORK to learningathome.034@educ.somerset.gov.uk with the title BOOK WEEK. 

Please write the name of the book and the author on a piece of paper. Prop it up next to your work before you take the photograph.

 

Last year, Florence (now in Year 6) made this during lockdown. It was for a 'World in Miniature' competition. Isn't it great!

 

 

 

10 O'CLOCK GOOGLE MEET

Today, we are going to have a book discussion. You will need two pieces of paper. One with a tick on it and one with a cross on it. I will be asking you questions. For instance, 'Have you read a book set in a different country?' If you have, you should hold up your 'tick'. You might like to share the title and author of the book. 

Please do not worry about this activity. We hope it will be fun. It will also provide a chance to recommend good books. 

Mrs Wallis and I can't wait to see you all. We do miss you.

Think of four more activities. Add them to the table, estimate and record the time taken to complete each one.

FOCUS ON HANDWRITING

Write out the rhyme that tell us how many days there are in each month. Use your best handwriting. Check that letters are the correct height and size. Perhaps, you might also enjoy drawing some illustrations. Focus on your presentation. Finally, learn the rhyme and perform it to your parents. 

 

30 days has September,

April, June and November.

All the rest have 31,

Except February alone

Which only has 28 days clear

And 29 in each leap year.

 

Every four years we have a leap year. An extra day is added to February so that it has 29 days instead of 28.

BOOK WEEK STORYTIME

Here's the clue. Yum!

 

Have you ever considered how useful a jam sandwich can be? Click here to listen to the story.

What do you think Lord Swell thought about the annoying wasps? How did Mayor Muddlenut organise the upset villagers? Did Bap the Baker have a bright idea? How did Farmer Seed come to the rescue? I wonder what the helicopter pilots thought about transporting a giant slice of bread?

 

Imagine you are one of these characters. Write a diary entry about this memorable event from their point of view. 

 

Write the date and title 'The Giant Jam Sandwich'

                                         'A Diary Entry from________(name of chosen character)'

 

Here's a checklist of the key features to use when you write a diary entry.

  • Start with 'Dear Diary'.
  • Describe the places where the events happen.
  • Write in the past tense.
  • Write in the first person. Use pronouns like I, my and me
  • Talk about how you were feeling or what you were thinking about when each event happened.

 

There is a sequencing activity with pictures on the document below which you may like to do to remind you of the story. You could also make notes to help you organise your ideas.

BOOK WEEK STORY TIME

I hope you have enjoyed listening to the stories this week. Here's the last story and one more clue.

 

 

If you have a toddler in your family, this book might appeal to you. Click here to listen to the story.

 

There are so many different types of fruit and vegetables. Infact, at least one for almost every letter of the alphabet.

 

Today we are going to write an A-Z of fruit and vegetables? 

Please write the date. Then write the title, 'An A - Z of Fruit and Vegetables'.

 

A- avocado, apple, apricot

B-  banana

C -

D -

 

I wonder how many fruit and vegetables will be on your A-Z? Count them all when you have finished.

 

HEALTHY EATING

 FIVE A DAY

 

Fruit and vegetables provide important vitamins and minerals to help keep us healthy. Fruit and vegetables also provide fibre for a healthy digestive system. 

 

We should eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables everyday. Fresh, frozen, canned, dried and juiced all count. We should try to have a variety. A rough guide to a portion is the amount that fits in the palm of your hand.

 

Today, keep a record of what you eat. Check that you have your five a day. Eating healthily not only makes our bodies feel good, but it can make us feel more positive and happy. 

 

MORPURGO SUPERHEROINES AND SUPERHEROES 

You have been superheroes and superheroines  during this lockdown. We are really proud of the effort you have put into your home learning . Don't forget to say a big thank-you to your mums and dads for all the support they have given you.

Why not make one of these smoothies to celebrate your return to school, and to celebrate all of your achievements. 

 

 Raise a glass... CHEERS!

 

It will be exciting to come back to school, but it is perfectly normal to feel a little anxious. Please don't worry. You will be with friends and people who care about you. 

Mrs Waller has added some COMING BACK TO SCHOOL stories on the Wellbeing page. They are worth having a look at. Click here.

WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL ON MONDAY
