Watch the clip from yesterday again:
Think about the time that we read War Horse and the fact that the whole story was from Joey’s point of view. I would like you to write a story based on this clip, from the dog’s point of view. I would like to hear the dog’s story and what he thinks of all of this.
Solve this problem:
Sam had 5 times as many marbles as Tom. If Sam gives 26 marbles to Tom, the two friends will have exactly the same amount. How many marbles will they have altogether?
We have now been out of school and limited to our houses for 2 weeks and I imagine that during this time, you have thought of lots of things that you would rather be doing. I want you to start a post-lockdown list of things that you would like to do when you can again. These could be things related to family, friends, school or something else. You could write a list or you could make something more creative.
Things you might include:
– join a new club (try to be specific)
– have a sleepover with …
– Visit ….
– Learn how to ….
Here is an extra task that you could do over the weekend or the holidays.
As you know, we are all stuck inside and some people are feeling very lonely, especially the elderly that live in a care home and aren’t allowed visitors at the moment.
I would like you to write them a letter, card, poem or create them a drawing to let them know you are thinking of them and give them some virtual company.
You could send these to someone you know in a care home, a care home close to your house or you could follow this link to find someone to write to:
Some things you could include in your letter:
– introduce yourself including what you enjoy doing etc
– tell them what you have been doing during the lockdown i.e. have you been at school, home school learning etc
– how you feel about everything that is happen
Remember if you are going to ask the person to write back, ask questions.
Have a good weekend and come back on Monday for some Easter challenges!!!
