Week Commencing 04.05.20
I hope you are enjoying our new topic ‘I am Warrior!’
Please practise spellings during the week and have a spelling test on Friday to see if you can remember them. It is also important to revise previous spellings and the Year 3/4 statutory spelling list. There will also be 5 Purple Mash activities to do during the week set as 2Do’s on the Purple Mash website.
Please use the Birch email to contact me if you have any queries or questions. Enjoy your learning!
The Sikh Festival of Vaisakhi. Watch the short film about Simran’s Vaisakhi – she is 11. This is part of the BBC My Life, My Religion film: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02mx761 Can you remember 5 fascinating facts from the film? Can you remember 5 key words? Note them down. Sikh festivals are a way of showing identity. Our identities are who we think we are, and can include our friends and family, values, beliefs and behaviours that we think are important. Imagine Simran’s identity as a jigsaw: can you draw a jigsaw with six things about her life, and label your drawings.
