Thursday

Recently, lockdown rules have been relaxed and people have been allowed to go to the park. This has seen a rise in the amount of litter left at parks unfortunately because bins are overflowing and lots of people aren't taking their litter home. The newspaper article below includes a picture of a bin in Victoria Park in Bristol that is very close to school. Read the article and then watch the two Newsround episodes. 

 

Today, we would like you to write a short newspaper article about littering at the park. We have learnt about writing newspaper articles at school but here is a reminder of some things we would like you to include in your article. Try to write in formal language.

 

  • A newspaper name
  • A catchy headline
  • An introduction that includes the 5ws e.g. where? when? who? what? why? 
  • The main body of the article which expands on what is happening at parks
  • A quote e.g. something that somebody said when you interviewed them. You could interview someone in your house to get a quote. 
  • A conclusion which tells the reader what might happen next. 

Friday

 

For your final task of the week, we would like you to create a poster which you could stick in your window that encourages people to take their litter home after being in the park. Your poster should have a powerful message and be eye-catching so here are some things which would be useful to include.

 

  • A big, catchy and powerful written message
  • An eye-catching picture
  • Colour

 

Here are a few posters to give you an idea of how to create yours.

 

            

Looking back, looking forwards

Monday

 

For the first part of the week we would like you to write a letter to your new teacher. Today, go to the BBC Bitesize page below and remind yourself how to write a properly structured letter by completing the tasks.

Tuesday

 

Today, we would like you to write a letter to your new teacher. Think about what you would like to say. Here are a few ideas:

 

  • Who you are and what you like doing out of school e.g. any hobbies or particular interests.
  • What you like about school and what you like doing in school.
  • What you are looking forward to in Year 5.

 

Once your letter is complete, please send it to your new teacher. Simply email:

year5@victoriaparkprimary.co.uk

Wednesday

 

Today is when you reflect on Year 4. We would like you to think about your highlights of the year and create something to show this. It could be a paragraph of writing, a picture, a play dough creation, a junk model, a Powerpoint...in fact any way you want.

 

Here are a few things we have done to jog your memories and what a list it is!

We would like to see you spending the next couple of days looking forward to next year and to plan a Dream Jar. 

 

In today’s task plan what you would like to include in your Dream Jar. Look at the Dream Jar planner below for ideas to get you started.

Friday

 

Watch this video to actually create a Dream Jar and then stick your dreams on the outside or use the Dram Jar template below if you don’t have the resources. Why not decorate it before you write your sentences.
