Week beginning Monday 29th June

I was delighted to see these lovely sentences which Megan did for Thursday's slow write. I also saw some lovely work from a few other people but I chose Megan's today as I haven't shown any of her writing here yet.

Sweeping above the trees, I felt happy and free. The clouds around me were as fluffy as cotton wool balls. I could hear aeroplanes in the distance and the wind blowing in my ears. Far away in the distance, animals were grazing in the midday sun. I spotted my house and saw some large ducks sitting on the roof. I felt worried because they may attack me.

I have just seen this lovely story by Nathan. It is from a few weeks ago but it is so lovely, I wanted you all to see it.

The Big Awesome Adventure

Once upon a time there was a boy called Samuel. Samuel lived with his grandma. One day Samuel said “I’m bored.” She replied and said “Go in the garden so Samuel did. When Samuel was looking in the garden he noticed a big red boat. “Hello there!” said a man. Urmmm. Hello replied Samuel.

“My name is John. Welcome to my boat!”

“I’ve never seen you in this garden before.”

“Oh I knew your dad!”

“What! You knew my dad?” Samuel said in a shocked voice. “Yes I knew your dad, he used to be a sailor with me. Anyway we have no time to talk. Do you want to come in my boat?” Yes please said Samuel.

“Well lift up my anchor and buckle up!” said John. Zooooom and off they went. They didn’t float, it didn’t fly, it hovered. But it wasn’t going forward, it was actually going backward. It started slow but it got faster and faster and faster! We are nearly there said John. “I am a little bit scared” Samuel said. “Your father was a brave man”” Bang!!! “We are there” said John. They both got out of the boat. Samuel looked around and said “this is my garden!” Wow! Look at that big footprint! Samuel said in a surprised voice. This is a T-Rex footprint but there are not any dinosaurs in my back garden. “Well I think you are going to find out soon.” Said John. And then out of the bushes was a T-Rex! “Oh my goodness” said Samuel. Don’t be scared said John. This is my friend Frankie. How are you?”

“I’m alright. I haven’t seen you in a long time” said Frankie. Don’t tell me this is Boris’ son!”

“Yes” said John “Doesn’t he look just like him.”

“You knew my dad too said Samuel. But then Samuel started feeling sad because his father passed away. Samuel was told that his father could not be found and he died in a shipwreck. And his mother was a nurse and Samuel barely saw her. That is why Samuel always lived with his grandma. A T-Rex is talking.”

“It’s alright, you don’t have to get too formal. Just call me Frankie.”

“H…H…H…Hello F…Frankie” said Samuel. “Do you want to meet the gang then?” said Frankie. And then his grandma called from the kitchen window. “Tea time, It’s teatime.”

“Oh no, I’m so sorry Frankie, Grandma is calling me for tea. Maybe another time? Said Samuel. “Bye” repeated John and Frankie. Then Samuel ran back through the bushes into his house. “What’s for tea Grandma?” She said “For today it is dinosaur nuggets and chips.”

“Yay!” replied Samuel, very happy. And that was the end of an awesome adventure.

Have look at Ettie's lovely piece of writing about Mrs Winter in the Magic Finger story. I'm sorry that it might appear sideways. These photographs seem to have a mind of their own.

As in previous weeks I suggest that the children do this week's whiterose lessons. They can use the resources linked on the BBC teach website or download the fluency and/or problem solving sheets that I have put on each day. Remember the first sheet is the easier challenge, the third is the harder challenge.
