Good morning Pankhurst Class – it’s Friday!
Well done to all of our fantastic bloggers and e mailers yesterday – Tanisa, Lydia, Evie, Sadia, Jessica, Alex, Dhanshri, Dan, Zain, Logan.
I have put another blog up this morning (called ‘Well done Year 5) with certificates for everyone who has blogged this week.
I’d like you to have a look at the following – discuss it with whoever is at home with you.
You should have been looking at the spellings below all week – a column a day. Well done to all of you that have done that this week. Many of you spelt these words very accurately so I’d like you today, to focus on practising any words that you spelt incorrectly. You will then perfect the spellings of these words.
I’d like you to research your favourite underwater creature – it could be a fish, mammal, reptile, crustacean etc. Find out information about what they look like, how they behave, their habitat, their behaviour and how they interact with other creatures, how they reproduce, their young – and anything else that you find fascinating about this creature.
When you have done this, I’d like you to create a diary entry showing me a day when you went deep sea diving and came across your favourite animal. Write about exactly what you saw. Try to include as much of your research about the creature into the diary entry as possible – really show off to me about how much you know about this creature. I’m looking forward to reading these!
Today, I am going to set you a number of tasks. You don’t have to do them all but have a go at as many as you can. When you blog, make sure that you write the Task number next to your answers.

See if you can solve this ‘Under the Sea’ wordsearch
How did you do? Here are the answers (no cheating!):
I’d like you to create your own wordsearch. It can be as large as you like – obviously the larger it is, the more challenging it will be. I suggest your research a lot of words before you start that are related to the sea – then you have a choice of which words to use and where to place them. These can go into your Home Learning packs but I’d love it if you could e mail them to me – I can then try to solve them!
