Good morning Year 5 – I hope you and your families are all well and keeping safe.
Well done to our bloggers and e mailers from yesterday – Lydia, Dhanshri, Logan, Jessica, Evie, Dan, Sadia, Gracie, Zain and Tanisa.
Could you let me know your spelling scores from yesterday – thank you to Lydia, Evie and Zain for doing this already.
Thank you for your fact file Tanisa – the only one that completed it!
Well done also to Sadia and Logan who responded to my replies yesterday – thank you.
Here are your tasks for today:
Following on from yesterday, I’d like you to ask an adult to test you on the second column of the Year 3/4 words (28 words). Ask them to read the words to you and then write them down. Use the list below to check your spellings and then blog me with your score. Good luck!

Yesterday, you watched the BBC Blue Planet video. Have a look at the following powerpoint which looks at the what we can do to save our sharks.
I want you to create your own leaflet (you can use the powerpoint or anything else that you may have researched) informing people of the importance of sharks to the ecosystem and persuading them to take action to help protect sharks. There is a template towards the end of the powerpoint that you could use but feel free to create your own if you would rather. Pictures should be included to explain/persuade – for example, the diagram of the food chain would help to make your points clear. I would love to see as many as possible if you could send them via e mail.
