Get Talking, Get Learning!

Literacy- Next week in Literacy we will be starting a new unit on recounts and newspaper reports. Please read some newspaper articles over the weekend and try to bring some newspapers into school on Monday as we will be investigating the features of newspaper reports.

Do you know any features of newspapers already? If you have been to newspaper club then you should be able to remember the features.

Numeracy-Next week we will be solving numeracy puzzles and problems related to money. Check that you know how to use the money notation and that you can convert from pounds to pence and vice versa. Also practice the written methods for addition and subtraction. Finally remind yourself of QUACK and how to use it.

Topic- The parents assembly is fast approaching so next week will be all about preparing for that. Please do some more research on South Africa, and in particular Nelson Mandela. On Monday you will be making some notes about Nelson Mandela’s life and then turn these into a narration and a short drama piece about his life.
You will then do rotated tasks for the rest of the week. You will decide which order to work in but you must get your South African/World cup nation food menu advert finished, design and make an African mask, learn the words to the African songs and also prepare your drama piece for the assembly.

What a busy week!

I hope you all have a wonderful and fun-filled weekend. See you on Monday.

    Here are the lyrics to the world cup theme song:

    When I get older I will be stronger
    They’ll call me freedom
    Just like a wavin’ flag
    And then it goes back
    And then it goes back
    And then it goes

    Here are some more lyrics to the world cup song:

    ooh oooh oooh oooh

    Give me freedom
    Give me fire
    Give me reson
    Take me higher

    See the champions
    Take the field now
    You define us
    Make us feel proud

    In the streets are
    Heads are liftin
    As we lose our inhabition
    Celebration it’s around us
    Every nation all around us

    Singin forever young
    Singin songs underneath that sun
    Lets rejoice in the beautiful game
    And together at the end of the game
    We all say!

    When I get older
    I’ll get stronger
    They’ll call me freedom
    Just like a waving flag

    and then it goes back
    and then it goes back
    and then it goes

    When I get older
    I’ll be stronger
    They’ll call me freedom
    Just like a waving flag

    now wave your flag
    now wave your flag
    now wave your flag

    oooh oooh oooh oooh
