I hope you had a good start to the new week and you are ready for a new set of tasks.
I wanted to remind you that I have now planned online sessions with you for this Wednesday 24th June. We are going to have the class in two groups - Group A and Group B.
Your parents should have received an email today about this. In the email you will see a link that opens a website portal we will use to meet and have a session to discuss a few things together and see how your learning is going.
Here are your learning tasks for today.
For Literacy this week I suggested you start looking back and thinking about your time in primary school.
I hope that yesterday you managed to spend some time thinking and making notes about what happened over these last eight years - Nursery to Year Six).
Today I would like you to start writing about the first two years, that is NURSERY and RECEPTION.
What are the special memories you will be taking with you from each year you spent at our school? Who was your teacher? What do you remember from each year group? Topics, trips or other events etc. Do you remember doing anything special with your friends?
You can write your memories on paper or electronically by typing them on Word. (If you were not at St John the Divine from Nursery, still write about the school you attended before you joined our school)
Tomorrow you will then write on another two year groups. When completed I would like you to send them to me electronically or by mail.

Watch the video on today's theme: Summer Week 9: Lesson 2 on 'Area of Triangles.'
Then click on BBC Bitesize next to the video and click on your year group tab to access your work for today.
Please remember you can rewatch the video as many times as you need to and you can go back to it when you are answering the questions.
You also know that we are currently celebrating LONDON VIRTUAL MATHS WEEK.
There are several things we are taking part in. Please remember to complete your SUMDOG Challenge (1000 questions)
Here is the other link for an interesting project for the London Maths week. It mixes maths with science to build structures.
I'd be very interested to see pictures of the finished product of this project!!
BUILDING A SPAGHETTI TOWER
For reading his week we have started listening to the audio story - The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
I have now changed the original link to a Youtube audio book as the first link had only part of the book.
The story takes over 5 hours reading so you will need to listen to about 30 minutes each day so we can finish it over two weeks.
Keep a notebook while listening to the reading. Make notes about new vocabulary you can look up later - new words in the text or other powerful words, adjectives, similes etc that you can then use in your writing, including the school memories in the Literacy task above.
READING - THE JUNGLE BOOK.
In today's lesson, we will learn about the state of Florida in the USA including its location, climate and industries.
This lesson includes:
one animation about Florida
three activities to build your knowledge
Follow the link to the BBC website to begin the lesson.
Have a good day. I'll have some fresh tasks for you tomorrow.
