End of Term Party
Important things first - we have reached 100 class paws and have earned a party!!!!
We will hold the party on Wednesday afternoon and will have games, music, dancing and food - which is where you come in. If possible, I would like each child to donate some food for the party, not too much as you will just have eaten your lunch. If you are creative, feel free to cook for us but please label the food with the ingredients. Please also label vegetarian food clearly. I promise to bring the cheesiest music I can find.
Capturing the Moments
Year 6 have also produced a book titled ‘Capturing the Moments’ based on the recent year 6 photography competition. Many parents have asked where they can purchase a copy of the book and I am pleased to announce that it is now available using the following link.
This week's Literacy homwork is rather difficult and a little different to the recounts (diaries, letters and newspaper reports) we have done before. This term, we have been reading Refugee Boy by Benjamin Zephaniah which tells the story of Alem Kelo, a young refugee who is from Ethiopia and Eritrea and who travels to Britain to escape the war.
I would like you to think of 5 questions youwould like to ask Alem. They can be about his life back home, his family or his life since arriving in the UK. Then pretend that you are Alem and attempt to answer the questions as he would. Don't forget to write in the first person.
If you don't have the details you need, feel free to invent details but stick to the story.
This week we have been using frequency analysis to break codes. We created code wheels which allow us to slide one alphabet below another to line up with the 'Letter of the Day' (e.g.Q below). We then translated a message and our partners had to try to crack the code using Frequency Analysis.
Can you use frequency analysis to work out what the code below means? What is the letter of the day?
