Work for Mrs Spencer Peck

Good morning everyone, I will be talking about how to write a biography in this morning’s meeting and sharing some examples, so you may want to wait before starting this…

I would like you to use the facts you have collected about your famous person to write a biography. I have sent a sheet with some time connectives, but of course you may use your own. The biography MUST have an orientation and reorientation and must be your own work. You can present it with photos and either handwrite it or type it. Think carefully about how to make a beautiful piece of work as this piece will be included in your Big Write collection.

Please read the information about colonies in the British Empire (Lesson 2+3) and then answer the questions. Be prepared to talk about your answers in Tuesday’s meeting.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-gcse-how-did-the-british-gain-control-of-india/z7yvrj6  - also have a look at this clip about India.

Take care,

Thursday Guided Read

So by now you will have all completed the book review of your school guided read book. This week I want you to choose our next book, and read the first 4 chapters. No task for now, just enjoy reading. 

PE-Dance

So your PE session this week, is to do 'The Carlton'! This bit is compulsory, you need to do the dance as part of the PE curriculum, however the next bit is NOT compulsory. To enter the' Carlton Dance Off' is entirely your choice-this is just a bit of fun. Get an adult to record you doing your favourite bit of The Carlton and post it on Twitter. If there are more than half of you that enter, I will post my own version, and I'll convince Mrs SP to take part too!! 

We will ask someone like Mr. Southern to judge the winner, and the prize is a HUUUGE bar of Dairy Milk!!

Remember the Twitter bit is NOT compulsory!! It's just meant to be a bit of fun!

Joke of the day to make you smile. Why couldn’t the pony sing himself a lullaby? He was a little hoarse! Hee Hee!!

Wednesday 20th January

Hi –hope the week is going well for you all, we keep watching the news hoping it will not be too long until we are all able to be back in class together again.

Maths – today we are looking at proportion – this is quite similar to equivalent fractions but instead of saying 1/3 you say 1 in every 3. Easiest example is in a class there are 10 girls and 20 boys so 10 in 30 are girls and 20 in 30 are boys – or simplified it would 1 in every 3 are girls and 2 in every 3 are boys. Ratio is slightly different and we will come to that later in the week. Watch this youtube clip to help explain it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USmit5zUGas

This guide could also help is you are unsure:

https://www.theschoolrun.com/what-is-proportion

The sheet is attached at the bottom of the page – make sure you complete 2 sections either A and B or B and C depending on how confident you feel with this area. After you are done there is a 50 question challenge on www.sumdog.com to show me how you have got on.

The estimate today is: if I went around my house and counted the number of panes of glass in the house what do you think the total would be? (we do have some doors with glass in inside the house)

 

English – we are back to Ms Henman and work on the Blitz – this is about a 30 minute lesson with no task to complete so just have a watch and read and see what you learn. https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-read-a-recount-and-answer-retrieval-and-inference-based-questions-6rvpct

 

History – I want you to find out a bit more about some characters involved in World War 2. I want you to write a biography on each person that should be about 3 paragraphs per person. The people I want you to research are:

Field Marshal Montgomery

Douglas Bader

David Stirling

All of them played important role in World War 2 so find out about when they were born, what they did, what difference it made, when did they die, did they win any medals, any notable events etc.

 

Over to Mrs T:

Wednesday PSHE

Traffic Lights

Some of these questions might seem really obvious, but you'd be surprised how often we can be tricked into giving away important information.

Think about these questions.

Questions

  • Would you tell a stranger your name and address?
  • Would you let someone you didn’t know hold your school bag for you while you did something else?
  • Would you tell a stranger on the phone that your parents were not home?
  • Would you share your online passwords with a stranger? With a friend?

STOP (red light): when faced with a situation where we are being asked for personal information

THINK (orange light) is it ok to share this information? What information is being asked? Who is asking for it? Have I checked with an adult?

GO (green light): I have checked with an adult, I know what information is safe to share.

STOP – before sharing:

  • your full name
  • photos of yourself that may identify where you are, or name of school
  • full address
  • name of your school or place of work
  • full date of birth
  • card numbers (credit, debit etc.)
  • phone numbers
  • and before accepting friend requests on social networks from people you have never met.

THINK – before sharing:

  • email addresses (especially if they contain the name of your school or workplace, or your full name)
  • age
  • names of places you frequently visit or sporting teams you are in
  • your post code
  • information in online quizzes or surveys as these could be gathering private information that may be used in identity theft. 

 GO ahead

  • if the information you are sharing is not too personal
  • after checking with a trusted adult first.

Can you create a poster to reflect the session we have completed, to warn others of the dangers of sharing information.

RE Unit 6.3 Why do Christians celebrate the Eucharist?

Read the following passage.

Mark 14:12-26

Jesus Eats the Passover Meal with His Disciples(A)

12 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the day the lambs for the Passover meal were killed, Jesus' disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to go and get the Passover meal ready for you?”

13 Then Jesus sent two of them with these instructions: “Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him 14 to the house he enters, and say to the owner of the house: ‘The Teacher says, Where is the room where my disciples and I will eat the Passover meal?’ 15 Then he will show you a large upstairs room, fixed up and furnished, where you will get everything ready for us.”

16 The disciples left, went to the city, and found everything just as Jesus had told them; and they prepared the Passover meal.

17 When it was evening, Jesus came with the twelve disciples. 18 (B)While they were at the table eating, Jesus said, “I tell you that one of you will betray me—one who is eating with me.”

19 The disciples were upset and began to ask him, one after the other, “Surely you don't mean me, do you?”

20 Jesus answered, “It will be one of you twelve, one who dips his bread in the dish with me. 21 The Son of Man will die as the Scriptures say he will; but how terrible for that man who will betray the Son of Man! It would have been better for that man if he had never been born!”

The Lord's Supper(C)

22 While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, gave a prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. “Take it,” he said, “this is my body.”

23 Then he took a cup, gave thanks to God, and handed it to them; and they all drank from it. 24 (D)Jesus said, “This is my blood which is poured out for many, my blood which seals God's covenant. 25 I tell you, I will never again drink this wine until the day I drink the new wine in the Kingdom of God.”

26 Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.

Answer these questions please.

What is a Seder plate?

What is Passover?

Ask family members what is their knowledge of Eucharist? See what they know.

Tueday 19th January

Hi – happy Tuesday. Tasks for today:

 

English – I’m trying a new online learning platform for the next unit which is stories from the Blitz – this is lesson 1 of 5 so have a look and complete the tasks: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-activate-prior-knowledge-and-consider-the-historical-context-6cw38c

 

Maths – we are looking at scaling in Maths today. This handy short video on youtube will explain how scaling works and then there is one of our sheets to complete at the bottom of today’s work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FnW7A0iVDM

The estimate today: if I did a scale drawing of the classroom using the scale 10cm=1m – how long would the classroom be on my drawing (to get it spot on you may need to have a decimal number in there as well).

 

History – our research project - today I would like you to find out more about the only area of Britain that was under Nazi rule during the 2nd World War. Jersey, Guernsey and the Channel Islands were occupied during the war – find out more about this, think about:

What was it like for the islanders?

When did it start?

When did it end?

What different rules did they have to follow?

What difference did it make to their lives? etc.

I want you to write a letter to a friend on the mainland telling them about life on the island under occupation.

 

Work for Mrs Spencer Peck

Good afternoon everyone, I have sent some information about the British Empire and some questions, which we can talk about this afternoon.

I would also like you to research a person for a biography. I’ve sent a list of people to choose from. Further instructions are on the sheet.

Take care,

Mrs Spencer Peck.

Hi – hope you all had a good weekend. Don’t forget to surprise us with your hair on teams this morning.

Maths – today we are looking at dividing decimals following on from our work from Friday in multiplying them. The clip we used the on Friday continued on to dividing so watch it again from 8 minutes onwards for an explanation on how to divide with decimals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwh4SD1ToFc

There is challenge on sumdog to complete on dividing decimals. I have also set up lockdown week 3 competition to run for the week - this will ask you questions at the level you are working at. Last week challenge winners were:

  1. Zee
  2. Callum
  3. Milo

Your estimate today is – how many questions were answered in the lockdown first week competition.

History – In world war 2 people did not have televisions so messages were spread more often by poster campaigns. Have a look at these world war 2 posters: http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/war/campaigns.htm

I want you to design an original poster of your own that is for world war 2 – it could be a warning about spies, encouraging people to grow their own food, wear a gas mask etc etc

English – last week we finished our book The Boy at the Back of the Class – today I would like you to write a letter to Onjali Rauf (the author) about the book, tell her about your favourite part, any surprises there were, ask her some questions about the book – like why did we only find out the characters name right at the end etc. Send them to us and I will print them out and send them off to her – you never know she might reply.

Friday 15th January

We’ve made it to the end of week 2 and hopefully you are still working hard and enjoying the tasks. 3 activities for today to help us learn.

 

English – we will finish off our book – The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Rauf – what I would like you to do is write a review of the book in the style of an Amazon review – would you recommend it, what is the plot, who should read it etc. Remember do not give away the whole story. Also I would like you to write a short message to Onjali Rauf (the author) and take a picture of yourself holding up the message (just a sentence or 2) decorate with some images from the book – I will tweet them to Onjali who sometimes does reply to messages on twitter.

Maths – today we are looking at multiplying decimals – again I have set up a challenge on sumdog to show me your understanding so please complete it at the end www.sumdog.com . I have attached the sheet (at the bottom of this text) which has 3 sections for you – complete 2 depending on how confident you feel on this area. Here is a youtube clip on calculating with decimals – the specific multiplication part is from about 4 minutes in but it is worth watching it all to revise how to add, subtract, times and divide when you have a decimal:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwh4SD1ToFc

Top 3 in our weekly sumdog competition this week is:

  1. Charlie M
  2. Milo G
  3. Kian W

Remember it runs until Sunday so still time for it to all change.

Estimate - on what page of our book The Boy at the Back of the Class was the emergency plan drawn?

Topic -  look and listen to clips on bbc https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/history-ks2-world-war-2-clips-index/zjc8cqt  about evacuation and war  speeches - write 2 diary entries for an evacuee - they can be happy or sad in their new environment but think about how they feel to be away from a family and in an unfamiliar place. Listen to some of the speeches from the leaders like Churchill or Chamberlain - write your own speech designed to inspire the people - you can even record yourself delivering it. I will be asking to listen to some speeches later on at the afternoon session.

Have a lovely weekend.

Work for Mrs Spencer Peck

 

Hello everyone, we will be continuing with our work based on biographies.

I’d like you to read the biography about the runner Usain Bolt, highlight the time connectives and then answer the questions.  I’ll be talking in more details about how biographies are constructed in our meeting at 9.30.

 

Watch the clip about how to write a biography. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbj3sk7

 

Using the facts about Queen Victoria,  (see sheet) write a biography about her life.  Remember to write in chronological order, use time connectives and try to use an orientation and a re-orientation.

Have your biography ready to share in Tuesday afternoon’s meeting.

Keep doing your best, I’m really pleased with what I have seen so far!* 

Don’t forget that the sumdog weekly competition is ongoing. www.sumdog.com

Afternoon with Mrs T:

Thursday-Guided Read

This week I want you to complete a book review of the school guided read book you have finished. You need to select a book from your own collection, ready to start reading next week. This book you choose will be the one you will complete tasks for, so I get to learn about the book you are reading too.

Thursday-PE

Joshua was given a PE task in Y3, using a dance site for children. I thought it was really good, so thanks to Miss Daly (Y3 teacher) I am going to ask you to have a look at it. Choose two dances, and try to copy the professional dancers moves.  Mrs Williams and I  did it in Y3 on Wednesday, it's not as easy as it looks, but we had lots of fun trying! https://family.gonoodle.com/channels/ntv-noodle-television 

Have a go, and tell me what you think!

RE - 6.1 Why do Christians celebrate the Eucharist?
To begin with

This unit we would have had a visit from Rev Kim to explain all about Eucharist, and answer all our questions. For now we will do some research of our own, using Google, and our family members. Think about the following questions. Feel free to write it down, record it, or just do it as a discussion. 

Key Questions  

  • Why do Christians celebrate the Eucharist? 
  • What is the reason for celebrating the Eucharist? 
  • The Eucharist service has several names. Why is this time of worship called the Eucharist/Holy Communion/Mass/The Lord’s Supper? 
  • What questions would you like to ask about the Eucharist/Holy Communion Service?

Wednesday 13th January.

Hi – happy Wednesday!

Some English, Topic and Maths this morning and then some work from Mrs T in the afternoon.

  1. Topic – we will be doing some more work on our project based on World War 2. You will need to research some questions each day and write responses to them in an extended piece of writing:

What was the blitz and what impact did it have on Manchester and the local area.

Some British islands were occupied by the Nazis in the war - what can you find out about this?

Early in the war we had to rescue our troops from Dunkirk - lots of ordinary people helped out - find some stories about this.

To help with research we have access to Britannica Encyclopedia online - https://school.eb.co.uk/storeschoolcard?id=boltonla
ID: Bolton2021 – we have had problems getting this working previously at home so let me know if there are issues outside of the school network.

 

2. English – In English we will continue with reading our story which will end...“Because it was…..” – who was at the door in our story The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Rauf, and what do you think happened next? Continue the story - we will be asking some of you to read out later.

 

3. Maths – Today we are finding fractions of amounts. This is really easy as long as you remember to divide by the bottom (denominator) and times by the top (numerator) so ¾ of 12 means 12 ÷ 4 = 3 and then x by the top so 3 x 3 = 9 so our answer would be 9. This youtube explanation will help as well: youtube.com/watch?v=E2QvVicQcMo

The sheet to work on is at the bottom of today’s text with 3 sections – remember pick 2 sections based on how confident you feel on this area.

Again I have set a challenge on sumdog - 100 questions about fractions of amounts.

Estimate today is: Mr Moorhouse is wearing a scarf today as he is cold in class – how long do you think the scarf is in centimetres?

 

 

Over to Mrs T for the afternoon tasks:

 

Wednesday-PSHE

Think before you click!

How quickly can information be spread on the internet? Do we think we are safe if we send a picture or text then delete it?

Think about if one person gets the text, then sends it to 8 more people, then those 8 people send it to 8 more people......Wow!! That's a lot of people who will have received the information with literally a couple of clicks of a button!

Think about this story:

 

Billy and Joe were good friends. They’d known each other for years, since Nursery, and although they were in different classes at Secondary school, they still met up on the school bus and usually had a good time. One morning Joe was waiting for the bus when a car pulled up.  Billy got out of the car - his Grandma had come to stay and had given him a lift to the bus stop. As Billy got out of the car, his Grandma shouted, ‘Love you Billy-Bear’.  Joe burst out laughing, and as soon as the car had driven off he repeated, ‘Love you Billy-Bear.’ Billy looked a bit embarrassed but he laughed along with his friend and explained that his Grandma had called him that since he was a baby and agreed that it was embarrassing now that he was older.

The bus arrived and as they got on, the boys carried on chatting, agreeing that families could be a pain! They sat in their usual seats and, as usual, the windows were steamed up. As they set off, Joe wrote ‘Love you Billy-Bear’ and drew a big heart on the window in the steam, he said it in a silly voice as he wrote it. One of the older bus on the bus overheard and leant over to see what was going on, “Who do you love?” the older boy asked, obviously keen for a bit of gossip. “It’s nothing.”, said Billy as Joe rubbed the writing off the window. Disappointed that there was nothing of interest, the older boy turned back to his seat and the journey carried on as normal.

After school, Billy and Joe stood in the bus queue. They were near the back because they’d both had P.E. As they got onto the bus they could hear laughing and kissing noises. As they walked towards their usual seats it became apparent what the fuss was about. As the windows had steamed up again, the writing and heart that Joe had done earlier had re-appeared. All around them were voices calling ‘Love you Billy-Bear’. Billy gave Joe a look that said everything. Joe looked horrified and sat with his head in his hands as they both tried to ignore the taunting. It didn’t last that long, although it felt like hours. The other kids on the bus soon settled back down to looking at their phones and the usual chat. Joe tried to wipe away the writing and hoped that the bus windows were due for a clean otherwise the evidence would reappear like a ghostly reminder of his foolish act. They sat in silence all the way home and as they got off the bus, Billy walked off without saying goodbye.

  • How do you think Billy was feeling? 
  • How do you think Joe was feeling? 
  • What do you think about Joe’s actions? Did he mean to upset his friend?

It was a silly act that got out of hand. Joe didn’t mean to tell everyone on the bus, he’d wiped it off when the older boy was being nosy in the morning. Unfortunately because of the steamy windows, it was hard to erase what he’d done.

  • How does this compare to posting something on the internet?

Things can be shared very quickly, to people all over the world, way beyond the original friendship group. Also, even if the first person deletes the post, once other people have shared it, it is very difficult to erase it.

  • Is it possible to take back something that’s posted on the internet?

No, it isn’t. Not for certain. Even is a posting is removed, someone might have taken a screen-shot of it, which could then be re-posted, outside the control of the person who originally posted it.

 

Reflection

We should always think carefully about what we post online. 

We should think about our safety and we should never share anything that might hurt or embarrass someone. It’s almost impossible to remove something once it is online and something that might seem funny in a moment might not seem like such a good idea later on.

Tuesday 12th January.

Hi – happy Tuesday!

Some Topic, Art and Maths this morning and then some work from Mrs Spencer-Peck in the afternoon.

  1. Topic – continuing our World War 2 topic today I would like you to find out more about some of the aeroplanes used during the second war 2 – here are some for you: Spitfire, Lancaster, Messerschmitt, Komet – you can also try and find some of your own. What I want you to do is produce some top trumps cards with details about the planes – you will need to research the planes to find out some information. On this page you will find some examples of a top trump card for cars to show you how it should look – don’t forget to add a picture:

https://www.booghe.co.uk/products/top-trumps-limited-editions-card-game-classic-rides

 

  1. Maths – yesterday we were looking at multiplying fractions – today we are look at dividing them which is really really easy when you know how! I will demonstrate in the teams session as well but here is a clip to help explain it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lkq3DgvmJo After we again have one of the sheets we use in class so pick 2 sections to work through depending on how confident you feel with this. I will also set up a 100 question Sumdog challenge on dividing with fractions.

 

Estimate today is: How wide is table 2 in class? Answer in metres.

 

  1. Art – linked to a topic I would like you to pick one of the planes from World War 2 and do a sketch of it in flight. My Godfather use to fly Lancasters and had a lovely painting up in his house that I always remember.

 

Work for Mrs Spencer Peck

Hello, I hope you have looked at the clip I sent you last Tuesday which briefly introduced the British Empire.

My aim (by the end of the topic) is for you to understand what an empire is and to understand how Britain developed its empire. We will also look at how the British Empire is no longer as powerful as it once was.

Read the British Empire powerpoint below – don’t worry if you don’t understand everything, we will be looking at it in other sessions too.

Now have a go at colouring the map showing where the British Empire once ruled. You will need a map for this, but bear in mind that some countries may have changed their names (although they are obviously still in the same place). Keep your work somewhere safe for your return to school. The work you need to download is called ‘The Victorian Lapbook,’ but if you can’t print it, simply make a list of the countries which used to be part of the British Empire in 1800.

If you have any problems, you can contact me on spencerg@st-saviourringley.bolton.sch.uk

Hi – hope you have enjoyed your weekend and the football results were kind!

We will again be meeting at 9.30 and 2.30 each day this week. I know Teams can be a bit temperamental at times – if it kicks you off don’t worry – the work is available here on the website anyway and we will record the sessions (as long we remember to press record) so you can catch up with them after. Sometimes it might not work our end – if that happens I will try and add some messages on Teams or to the website. I will continue to add tasks on to Sumdog this week (next week we will use Prodigy) so make sure that you complete those – I am keeping a record in my book to see who does them each day and to record your score which will help me to gauge levels ready for Secondary School transition so it is important you do complete the tasks.

  1. Maths – this week we are looking more at fractions and decimals. I have attached one of the sheets we usually use in school and there is a youtube clip to watch to help explain the task:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmfXyR7Z6Lk

 

With our sheets there are 3 levels of work and the idea is that you complete 2 of the sections (you can do all 3 if you want). If you feel confident after watching the clip do B and C, if you are a bit unsure and want to practice your skills a bit more do A and B. The sheet is attached at the bottom of work today.

 

Today’s estimate is how many steps will Mr Moorhouse’s fitbit say he has done by the 2.30 session?

 

  1. English – we will listen to some more of our story – The Boy at the Back of the Class. After we have read I would like you to write a letter back to the Queen in response to the one that comes up in the story.

 

  1. Topic – Part 1 – We are starting are topic on World War 2 for today’s task you will need to research some questions and write responses to them in an extended piece of writing:

 

  • Why did World War 2 start?
  • Which countries were involved and who were their leaders?
  • Why was the war known as the phoney war early on?
  • When was rationing introduced? What did it involve? How did it work?

Friday 8th January.

Hi – it was great to see many of you and catch up a bit yesterday on teams – we will carry on with our morning meet up and then afternoon check ups – we will do I best to remember to record them as well so if you miss it you can catch up later with the session. From my own experience – well my lads who use it for college, teams can sometimes go wrong – if that happened don’t worry – the work will be on the website and we will just go again at the next meeting.

Session 1 – topic proposal - I am planning some project work for us next week looking at World War 2 – please have a think as part of your work today about any topics you would be interested in finding out more about – either History or Geography based and I may pick some for future weeks. Please send me 2 or 3 ideas of things you would like to find out about and what you would like to learn. For example on World War 2 I might get us to research – how did it start? Who was involved? What sort of weapons did they use? What was life like for people locally? How did it end? What was life like for a prisoner of war? What did they eat? I’ve heard a bit about evacuation – what does that mean? Etc etc. I am hoping we will get some really exciting and interesting topic ideas.

Session 2 – Maths – today we are looking at comparing and ordering decimals. Have a look at this page which includes a video, a game and an activity sheet to complete: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z68rn9q  again I will set up a sumdog challenge for you as well on decimals.

 

Session 3 – English – I want us to look at writing direct and indirect speech. This page has some videos and activities for us to look at and complete. There are some suggested answers but only look at those after you have had a go.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zm63c7h

 

Session 4 PSHE – Sign language – have a look at the clip below and do some research about British Sign Language yourself. See if you can learn a phrase that you can teach to us all on our teams session later.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z4t2tfr

 

I hope you have a lovely weekend – it is meant to warm up a little bit on Sunday and be a bit warmer next week which I hope will please some people!

Thursday 7th January

Work from Mrs Spencer Peck

Reading and writing

Good morning everyone.  For our new writing focus, we are going to be writing biographies.  A biography is a recount of someone’s life.  Sometimes the person is still alive, sometimes not.

To begin with, I would like you to read the biography about the author JK Rowling.

 

Next, can you highlight (or write down) all the time conjunctions? These words show that time has passed.  Some examples would be, ‘during,’  ‘many years later,’  ‘since.’                          

Now answer the questions.

SPaG

Look at the sheet entitled , ‘Writing a word as a noun and a verb.’  

Example  -   ‘point’

I asked him to point at the dog.   (in this case, the word ‘point’ is an action and therefore a verb)

I sharpened the point on my pencil.  (in this case the point is a thing and therefore a noun)

 

Follow the instructions on the sheet.  You might want to write ‘verb’ or ‘noun’ next to each sentence when you have done it.

Afternoon

Hi Class 6
Happy New Year! I hope you are all ok, and had a great Christmas. Wasn't the snow ace??My family and I had so much fun playing in it, making snowmen, snowball fights and snow angels! Whoop! Whoop! Looks like Mr. M was right about the snow....but don't tell him I said he was right! Hee! Hee!
Thursday Guided Read
This week I want you to read to the end of your school guided read book. There is no task this week, as I want you to finish your book. You will have extra time for reading, so don't worry. Be thinking about a book you have at home that you can use for your next book, as I will set you tasks based around the book you choose to read for future sessions. 
Thursday PE
As the weather isn't great at the moment, I don't want to be asking you to go outside. What I want you to do, is find your favourite song on You Tube (make sure you have adult supervision) and create a dance sequence that reflects the type of song you have chosen. Think about the beat, tempo, and style of music, and how you can move your body to reflect that. See if you can record yourself, and send me a clip-I'd love to see what you create! REMEMBER-dance is all about interpretation, so whatever you create will be fab!! 
Joke of the day to make you smile- What did the ground say to the earthquake? You crack me up! 
Stay safe you lovely lot and keep smiling! Mrs T x

Hello everyone, I hope you are all feeling ok.  Work for this afternoon is below....
