We are going to do something a little different today.



We are all missing people at the moment. I came across this lovely book and I must admit it brought a tear to my eye. I am ordering a copy for school. For now, listen to the story by clicking here.

You may think it is a book for younger children. Don't. Remember, I'm much older than you and I enjoyed it. It certainly gave me a lot to think about. 


The book explains how an invisible string is always attached to people we love and always will be.


 I would like you to think of all the people you are attached to with an invisible string.


Get creative and choose an activity below


Find some string and draw some hearts. Write the name of special people on the hearts. Thread or peg your hearts on the string.











Draw and cut out special people and thread them on the string. Be sure to add their names.



 Create some bunting using paper or fabric with the names of special people on each piece. 



Try and get your grown ups involved as this is a lovely activity for all the family.

On Monday you created a Noun Mind Map. 


 Write 4 sentences about each mammal you have chosen for a mind map. Try to use some of the words you have listed.

Have you seen the skipping video on Bishop's Hull TV? Skipping is a great way of keeping fit. I would like you to do a skipping 'work out'. How many jumps can you do? If you do it daily, not only will your technique improve but also your stamina.

In 1963, Maurice Sendak write the picture book Where The Wild Things Are. Do you know it? In the story, Max, on the night he wore his wolf suit, went on a magical journey to the land of the Wild Things and became the king of these strange creatures. Eventually, he missed home and made the journey back to his bedroom, where it all began. It's a wonderful story - you can listen to it here and see the wonderful illustrations.


A hint about our literacy focus for next week.

In the book, Where The Wild Things Are, there are many fabulous creatures that have never been seen before. Next week, we will be meeting an explorer who travels around the world discovering strange creatures. Here she is!


We will be writing some non-chronological reports.



Lots of people have enjoyed the art tutorials so I am ending the week with another one. Click here to find out how to draw a humpback whale.
