English

Do you write a diary? Have you read a book which has diary extracts in it? It can be a good way to remember what you have been doing and they are fun to look back on. Some people write in their diaries everyday and some people only write when there is something different, unusual or exciting to write about. Today, we will look at the features of diary writing. Use 'Features of Diary Writing' to guide your learning today, in the files below. Watch me talk about diary writing here:

Science

Last time in science, we thought about loud and quiet sounds and you tried a sound quiz. Most people got the first one right which was walking in the snow, but it did sound very much like pulling up a zip. Today, we are learaning about how sound is made and how it travels to our ears. We will also try an experiment to see if distance from a source of sound affects volume. Follow 'Sound Distance Volume' to find out more.

RHE

This is the second of three lessons exploring our communities. It focuses on ways to stay safe in our communities and when we might need toask for help from trusted adults. The slides may prompt important conversations about who trusted adults might be in different situations. Use 'Asking For Help' in the files below to help guide your conversations.
