Reading Skills

Read the following text a few times to an adult then answer the questions that follow it.


LI To use technical vocabulary

The Phoenix Code by Helen Moss

Today we’re listening to chapter 33 of the Phoenix code told by Mrs Irvine

Yesterday you wrote the opening paragraphs to your story.  Read them back out loud to yourselves, or to someone else in the house.  Can you spot any mistakes or improvements you can make?  Reading out loud is a good way to check what you have written.


Once you have made sure your opening is a brilliant as you can make it, carry on with your story.  Make sure you explain the dilemma/problem and that is get solved properly, we don’t want ‘and it was all a dream’ at the end!

Once you have written it, read it back to yourself, does it make sense?  Have you used cliff-hangers?

Don’t forget to send you finished story in either through Teams or via email so your teachers can see your amazing work!

Wider Curriculum: Science

There is a recorded lesson on Teams for this, follow the link to listen to Mrs Bourdillon explain todays lesson.


LI To create and use a classification key to classify invertebrates

This week for science we are going to think about how we could work out what classification an invertebrate is, like the flow chart we did for the vertebrates.  See if you can spot any invertebrates outside, they might be under logs of stones, in long grass or even in the earth itself. If you can’t get outside to find one, pick one that you know of. How can you work out what type of invertebrate it is?  What questions would you ask?  Have a look at the last slide on the powerpoint, does they key work for your invertebrate? Can you create your own flow chart for classifying invertebrates?

Nearly the end of day. Now it’s time for a little quiet, prayer and reflection with our Class worship. Click the candle.





Time for a story to finish our day. Click the image and choose one to read.


Congratulations and well done on getting to the end of the week! We hope you have had an amazing week, well done everyone!

Don’t forget to send your work to the class e-mail address where your teacher will be able to put it on the hub page!
