Let's chill out today, and apply our English writing skills to helping us 'Be Kind to our Minds'.
Phew! What a super effort on reading last week!.. Let's keep up our great run, guys!
...And now, what we have all been waiting for..... This week's Leaderboard!!
Oh, my giddy aunt!! CONGRATULATIONS, Matthew Snook you have completed Level D in Reading, and have earned a Level Award! SPECTACULAR work!
Good morning, everyone! Enjoy your work for today. And.. (drum roll.....) watch out for our Leaderboard a bit later on! I'm on the edge of my seat!!!
It is SO important that we are able to describe how we are feeling - especially at the moment, when we are in a unique situation and out of our usual routines. Use this opportunity both to extend your vocabulary for describing your feelings, but also to think carefully about how you are actually feeling, today. Remember to 'Be Kind to Your Mind'.
Can you believe, we're at the end of another wonderful week? So let's round it off with some mega reading improvements...
Did you know that Walt Disney said, 'There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island.'

..once again, don't forget the documents from previous days: your plan; your BALANCED ARGUMENT adverbials and conjunctions sheet; your home learning writing book with your writing 'so far' from yesterday; your whiteboard and pen if you have one (scrap paper if you don't). Happy writing, everyone!
Congratulations Dylan! You have earned a Level D award on Reading Plus. Look how much you have improved! We knew you would - you're no Pre-A reader! Keep up the great work!
Let's keep on rolling along!.. Nice loose pen/pencil grip - none of the old, 'My hand hurts!'
You are writing 3 or 4 more paragraphs today - one for each of your counter arguments. Begin each paragraph with an appropriately punctuated adverbial from your sheet. So, with dictionary and thesaurus by your side, following the step by step guidance and WAGOLL below, off you go!
