It is important that you know what the words mean too. Maybe you could practise them in your working-from-home book by using similar activities to the ones we do in our orange spelling books in class. You could even even get someone to test you on them next week or play some spelling hangman.
A huge thank you to everyone who has posted on the blog, I have really enjoyed reading through them all. It’s so strange being in school without you all, very quiet too!
As the blog is being updated with new content each week, it can be difficult to keep track of the different tasks set and the online activities you can try so I have created this sticky post (that means it will always stay at the top of the blog) to help us keep track of everything. When new content is added, I will add them to this post too.
However, it is equally important to spend time with your family. Get outside (when you can), bake, draw, paint, help around the house and all the other things that are fun ways to spend your time doing! We don’t know how long this way of working will last but let’s make the most of it!
Take care of yourselves and keep me updated with what you get up to at home.
As George’s grandmother is a nasty piece of work, he decides to punish her by making a magic medicine to replace her old one.
George collects a variety of ingredients from around the family farm including deodorant and shampoo from the bathroom, floor polish from the laundry room, horseradish sauce and gin from the kitchen, animal medicines, engine oil and anti-freeze from the garage, and brown paint to mimic the colour of the original medicine.
George’s grandmother drinks the medicine and turns enormous. She grows that big that she ends up being out of the roof!
Your challenge is to get creative and make your own potion (do not go stealing your dad’s beers or your mum’s nail polish!)
You could present your work by using pictures or a labelled diagram of your potion. I would also like you to tell me what your potion would do if somebody drank it.
It is clear that you are enjoying Joe Wicks’ PE sessions first thing in a morning and what a brilliant way to start the day!
With schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it is more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive. Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised and more optimistic.
For those wanting to take part (and please do) you can join Joe Wicks on his YouTube channel at 9:00am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.
I hope you are all behaving and helping out where you can.
Unfortunately, we aren’t able to finish George’s Marvellous Medicine in class so I have added the following link below. It is the full story split into 5 parts, read out by Rik Mayall (make sure you are strapped into a seat as it is absolutely hilarious!)
Don’t forget, there are links to websites that school has subscribed to in your work-from-home book, along with your usernames and passwords.
Please keep in touch by posting and commenting on the blog. I can’t wait to see what you get up to!
